Dr. David Brownstein, who has a clinic simply outdoors of Detroit, Michigan, has efficiently handled over 200 sufferers with what has change into my favourite intervention for COVID-19 and different higher respiratory infections, particularly nebulized hydrogen peroxide.

A peer-reviewed consecutive case sequence of 107 COVID-19 sufferers handled with nebulized peroxide and different treatments, together with oral nutritional vitamins A, C and D, iodine, intravenous hydrogen peroxide and iodine in addition to intravenous (IV) vitamin C, together with intramuscular ozone, was revealed within the July 2020 challenge of Science, Public Well being Coverage, and the Regulation.1 All sufferers survived.

Nebulized Peroxide and Iodine

On the time of this interview, the variety of sufferers efficiently handled with these all-natural methods exceeds 230, and he has now revealed a e book describing his strategy, titled “A Holistic Approach to Viruses.”

“[Among] our [COVID-19] sufferers, we have had no deaths,” he says. “We have had a few hospitalizations, however a lot smaller than must be for the reported statistics. And we’re nonetheless utilizing the identical protocol we have been utilizing for 25 plus years for flu and flu-like sicknesses.

A affected person I known as over the weekend instructed me ‘There are two issues out of what you gave me that I might inform actually made me really feel higher.’ I gave him the entire protocol of oral vitamin A, C, D and iodine and nebulized peroxide and iodine.

He mentioned, ‘I forgot to make use of the iodine the primary day or two. Once you requested me about it, I re-added it again in orally. That made the distinction. My mucus thinned out, my respiration was higher. I forgot to place the iodine within the nebulizer [too], and [when] I did each on the similar time — the oral iodine and the nebulized hydrogen peroxide with iodine — all the pieces cleared up …’

His respiration was 80%, 90% higher shortly after the primary or second dose of iodine. He is one other success story that we have had, which is supporting individuals’s immune methods throughout these viral sickness occasions … I’d implore my colleagues so as to add iodine into no matter routine you are utilizing to treating sufferers who’re ailing with flu-like sicknesses corresponding to COVID-19.”

Early Therapy Just about Eliminates Lengthy-Haul Syndrome

In my latest interview with Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, through which we focus on hydroxychloroquine therapy, he identified that not one of the sufferers handled inside the first 5 days of symptom onset went on to develop long-haul syndrome.

This has by and enormous been Brownstein expertise as properly. Of the preliminary 107 sufferers included in his case report, 2% developed long-haul syndrome. That is in stark distinction to the 20% to 40% reported elsewhere, he notes.

“The large catastrophe of COVID-19 that historical past will inform sometime is the powers that be telling us there’s nothing we will do. Simply keep residence, lock your self in your basement, quarantine your self from your loved ones, put on your masks, social distance — that is it. No therapies, no nothing, simply wait until the vaccine comes out.

This has resulted in over 400,000 deaths. Possibly the loss of life numbers are exaggerated, however lots of people have died as a result of the governments and the powers that be, the AMA and all people else on the market, have mentioned ‘There’s nothing you possibly can supply’ and ‘Do not supply something as a result of it hasn’t gone by way of randomized, double blind, placebo managed research … and if medical doctors do it, we will censor them and maintain them accountable.’ That is been the largest catastrophe of this complete factor,” Brownstein says.

Most Are Poor in Primary Immune Boosters

It’s necessary to acknowledge so long as your immune system is as much as par, your physique can overcome most if not all viral invaders. And, your immune system perform depends on correct vitamin, not medication or vaccines. Brownstein’s use of dietary dietary supplements and different immune boosting methods goes again many years, properly earlier than there have been antiviral medication accessible.

He factors out {that a} overwhelming majority of individuals have low ranges of vitamin C, for instance, which helps each your innate and adaptive immune methods. About 90% of his sufferers are additionally poor in vitamin D, which is one other essential immune regulator. You’ve vitamin D receptors in each your innate and adaptive immune methods. Vitamin D deficiency can be related to sepsis.

Many are additionally poor in vitamin A. Right here, the satan’s within the particulars. Beta carotene is a water-soluble type of vitamin A that doesn’t present the immune boosting advantages of vitamin A. For that, you want the fat-soluble kind. So, be sure to’re taking emulsified vitamin A.

“Beta carotene doesn’t present the immune system impacts vitamin A does,” Brownstein says. “Vitamin A helps reduce cytokine storm. It helps reduce the inflammatory components … It helps to decrease TNF alpha. And the white blood cells want vitamin A as an integral a part of their functioning. So, it helps each the innate and the adaptive immune methods battle again.”

Nutritional vitamins A, C, D and Iodine

For many years now, Brownstein has prescribed nutritional vitamins A, C and D to his sufferers, and on the first indicators of sickness, he instructs them to jack up the dosages to 100,000 items of vitamin A and 50,000 items of vitamin D3 per day for 4 days, together with 1,000 milligrams of vitamin C per hour throughout waking hours till signs recede.

“These had been the primary three issues I did,” he says. “What I discovered was that when individuals received the flu or flu-like sickness, and so they began taking these three issues instantly they’d get higher in 24 hours. It was superb.

Just a few years later, I realized about iodine and began testing, and located 97% of individuals are poor in iodine. The overwhelming majority markedly poor, assembly WHO requirements of severely poor in iodine. So, I added iodine into that protocol.

My common dose of iodine for most individuals is — if they do not have glandular issues like issues with the breasts, prostates, thyroid, pancreas, ovaries, uterus — about 12.5 milligrams a day. If they’ve issues with these glands, it might be extra.

The common dose of iodine through the years that I’ve had my sufferers on is 25 milligrams a day. And it is a mixture of iodine and iodide, which is present in Lugol’s resolution. That was rapidly added into that four-part routine, and that made an enormous distinction. Folks favored that. They felt higher with it.”

As time went on, he found case histories describing the therapy of pneumonia, bronchitis and different lung issues with nebulized iodine. Because of this, he added that into his antiviral routine as properly.

When you’re utilizing 5% Lugol’s resolution, merely add one drop to your nebulizer after filling it with the diluted peroxide resolution. When you’re utilizing 2% Lugol’s resolution, which is obtainable over-the-counter, add two drops. After all, this must be executed with a physician’s session.

IV Peroxide, Vitamin C and Ozone

Just a few years after that, he got here throughout hydrogen peroxide, which can be utilized each intravenously and in a nebulizer. The truth that your physique naturally produces enormous quantities of hydrogen peroxide in all cells can clue you in to its significance. 

“I began utilizing IV and nebulized peroxide, and I blended the nebulized peroxide with a nebulized iodine in a single resolution. For individuals growing lung issues, pneumonia, lung most cancers or COPD, in the event that they had been coughing, couldn’t breathe, in the event that they had been wheezing and issues like that, including nebulized hydrogen peroxide at 0.04% dilution and one drop of 5% Lugol’s resolution, which provides 6.25 milligrams of iodine, actually helped lots of people out.”

Ultimately, he began including in IV vitamin C, hydrogen peroxide and ozone therapy. When COVID-19 broke out the winter of 2020, Brownstein determined to do this primary antiviral protocol, discovering it labored simply as properly in opposition to SARS-CoV-2 an infection as every other viral an infection.

In the course of the first wave in March and April 2020, not one of the employees that continued working fell ailing. Ultimately, one employees member received sick, triggering a cascade of an infection among the many employees. All had been handled and all efficiently recovered. “Now we’ve a herd immunity workplace,” Brownstein says. “Eighty-seven p.c of us have antibodies to COVID-19.”

Nebulized Peroxide Fundamentals

I’ve embraced nebulized peroxide for the reason that COVID-19 pandemic broke out and have obtained many anecdotal experiences from individuals who have efficiently used it, even at extra superior levels. Based mostly on Brownstein’s expertise, I now additionally suggest including iodine when nebulizing, because it seems to make it much more efficient.

Needless to say the peroxide must be diluted with saline. I like to recommend diluting it all the way down to 0.1%. Brownstein recommends diluting it to 0.04%. Tom Levy recommends 3% and better. Ideally, use meals grade hydrogen peroxide, because it doesn’t have any dangerous stabilizers. When you pre-dilute to 0.04%, it should keep potent for about three months when saved refrigerated. When you do a 0.1% dilution, it might keep potent a bit longer.

When you don’t have entry to saline, you would make your individual by mixing one teaspoon of unprocessed salt (corresponding to Himalayan salt, Celtic salt or Redmond’s actual salt) right into a pint of water. This provides you with a 0.9% saline resolution, which is in regards to the focus present in physique fluids. Utilizing that saline, you’ll then dilute the hydrogen peroxide as described on this chart.

Don’t combine the peroxide with straight distilled water, as this might doubtlessly trigger physiological injury. You want the salt in there. You’ll be able to, nonetheless, make your saline utilizing distilled water.

Additionally, to optimize your advantages, you should definitely purchase an electrical tabletop jet nebulizer. The battery-driven handheld variations merely aren’t as efficient. As Brownstein factors out, in almost all circumstances the place sufferers weren’t getting higher, they had been utilizing a handheld nebulizer. As soon as they received a extra highly effective model that may drive the peroxide deep into the lungs, the therapy began working because it ought to. 

I strongly suggest shopping for all the pieces you want beforehand, so to deal with your self or your loved ones at a second’s discover. You don’t wish to wait days in your order to reach earlier than beginning therapy.

Mechanisms of Motion

What’s it about hydrogen peroxide that makes this nebulizing therapy work so properly? Clearly, common peroxide is a topical disinfectant that kills viruses on contact. However it additionally appears to have a secondary messenger impact. Brownstein explains:

“It is an oxidative remedy. We’re form of all conditioned that antioxidants are good and oxidants are unhealthy, however actually, you want a steadiness of them. It is known as a redox. It is like a teeter-totter. You want oxidants to stimulate the breakdown of outdated cells, outdated and injured tissue, and also you want antioxidants to stimulate the restore of these outdated cells and outdated tissues.

So, the oxidants do have a profit. They stimulate the redox pathway, and what I believe we’re getting with hydrogen peroxide, ozone and high-dose vitamin C is that you just’re stimulating this redox pathway to maneuver electrons round.

Once you transfer electrons round you may make power molecules, ATP, you possibly can stimulate restore cells and STEM cells and get issues transferring once more. The human physique produces an incredible quantity of peroxide. It is produced everywhere in the physique in each cell. If this was an oxidant remedy that is harmful, why would we produce a lot of it?

Utilizing small quantities of peroxide, both IV or nebulizer, solely has medical impact. I don’t see destructive results with it. [Vitamin C also] stimulates peroxide manufacturing once you use excessive doses.”

Apart from having antiviral results, nebulizing peroxide may also enhance oxygenation and respiration typically, and will be very useful for people who smoke. This is smart as peroxide breaks down in your physique into water and oxygen. Brownstein believes it additionally has a detoxifying impact on the lungs.

It’s fascinating to notice that Brownstein and his colleagues by no means used any of the drug regimens that many medical doctors swear by, corresponding to ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine.

Whereas he has seemed on the scientific literature, noting there’s ample proof to help their use and security, all of his sufferers recovered with out them, so he by no means resorted to prescribing both of them. Brownstein didn’t even use zinc, which is a staple dietary intervention for viral infections.

For sufferers who journey and fear about contracting COVID-19, he merely reminds them to deliver their nebulizer, correctly diluted hydrogen peroxide and iodine. That approach, they will nebulize once they get to their vacation spot, which ought to successfully kill off any pathogens they may have been uncovered to throughout their travels.

Treatments to Keep away from

Apart from understanding what to take and what to do, it’s additionally necessary to know what to keep away from. Examples embody Tamiflu which, when it really works, could scale back symptomatic sickness for under a few hours at greatest, whereas having vital facet impact dangers. Brownstein additionally advises in opposition to Tylenol and different antipyretics corresponding to aspirin and ibuprofen. The rationale for it is because you do not wish to suppress your physique’s potential to mount a fever. Brownstein explains:

“Fever is there for a function. We had been designed completely to outlive viral sicknesses, to reside to outdated age and have mind perform into outdated age. If we help the physique, if we give it the essential vitamins it wants and the essential uncooked supplies and help that it wants, it could actually do actually cool issues.

The issue is, within the poisonous world we reside in, enzymes are poisoned and receptors are blocked. We take all these medication that poison enzymes and block receptors. Fever is your buddy and the fever’s there for a cause. Micro organism and viruses do not like a raised physique temperature. That is why the physique raises the temperature throughout an an infection.

It is attempting to make the surroundings inhospitable for a pathogen. So, the worst factor you are able to do in that scenario, except the fever is simply too excessive — a fever over 103 levels Fahrenheit, possibly 103.5 104 F., could cause mind issues and seizures and you’ll die from a fever.

However most individuals do not get fevers up that top once they’re sick. They get low grade fevers, 99.5 to possibly 101, 102 F. I inform sufferers, do not take something for that. Simply help the physique and let it do its factor.

You’ll be able to management your temperature significantly better than utilizing antipyretics like Tylenol or ibuprofen by taking a tepid bathtub or sponge bathing with tepid water. A shower with Epsom salts was very useful for my COVID sufferers, and it has been useful for different viral sicknesses through the years.”

The Drawback With Tylenol

Tylenol specifically can be problematic for different causes. Importantly, it poisons the enzyme that makes glutathione, a really potent antioxidant that your physique produces intracellularly. Once you’re coping with a bacterial or viral an infection, you need your physique to make extra glutathione to help affected cells. When you take Tylenol, you block that course of.

“Tylenol additionally has a really slender window of toxicity, which means that for those who go over the advisable dose on the label, however not by a lot, you may get Tylenol toxicity. The liver begins to interrupt down and other people die from this,” Brownstein warns.

The therapy for Tylenol toxicity is intravenous N-acetylcysteine (NAC), which is the precursor to creating glutathione. So, I inform my sufferers to keep away from taking Tylenol. I actually made some extent of it with COVID-19, as a result of they wanted glutathione manufacturing.

And so far as Motrin and ibuprofen and aspirin goes, in the beginning of the disaster, I noticed three sufferers who instructed me once they took the primary dose of Motrin for a fever, they collapsed, their system went to hell, they’d hassle respiration. Every thing received worse an hour or two after that first dose of ibuprofen.

There was an early article that hypothesized taking ibuprofen and NSAIDs would possibly make COVID-19 worse as a result of it could actually have an effect on the ACE2 receptor and make the virus extra prone to latch onto it. That hasn’t actually been confirmed. I believe it is extra [because] you are blocking the physique’s pure fever response and it is simply not factor to do.”

Again to Fundamentals

Brownstein stresses that it’s not nearly taking sure dietary supplements or nebulizing once you’re ailing. You additionally want to wash up your eating regimen. One of the best therapy is prevention, which you’ll obtain by way of correct eating regimen and a wholesome way of life every day.

That mentioned, once you do get acutely ailing, for those who haven’t already eradicated processed meals, that are loaded with sugar and dangerous fat, omega-6 linoleic acid (LA) specifically, that’s the time to do it.

Analysis truly suggests hydrogenated LA can radically improve your danger for COVID-19 as a result of the LA is a part of the technique the SARS COV-2 virus makes use of to contaminate your cells. I describe this in “The Type of Fat You Eat Affects Your COVID Risk.” So, you’ll wish to dramatically restrict vegetable oils and different sources of LA and give attention to natural complete meals.

Collectively, consuming “clear” and addressing any dietary deficiencies you could have (and testing is the easiest way to go about figuring out that) can go a good distance towards stopping extreme infections. As famous by Brownstein:

“You must have a robust immune system. A greater immune system goes to battle no matter you are confronted with. And look, SARS COVID-2 is right here now. There’s going to be SARS-CoV-3, CoV-4 or CoV-5 or another sickness that is on the market, so, we received to have a robust immune system.”
