Iodine is essential to not only fighting off an infection it is necessary for proper immune system functioning. There are no bacteria, virus, parasite or fungus that is known to be resistant to iodine. Most of the population is low in iodine; In fact, if Iodine levels have fallen nearly 60 percent over the last 40 years. The RDA for iodine is inadequate to supply enough iodine for all the bodily tissues. I suggest taking 25 mg/day as a daily dose and more (sometimes 50-100 mg/day) at the first sign of an illness. Iodine can cause adverse effects and it is best used under the guidance of an iodine-knowledgeable doctor, like Dr. Brownstein MD.
To prevent becoming ill and to avoid having a poorly responding immune system, it is vitally important to eat a healthy diet free of all sources of refined sugar. Refined sugar has been shown to negatively alter the functioning of white blood cells for hours after ingestion. Finally it is important to maintain optimal hydration – drink water! Take your body weight in pounds, divide by two and the resultant number is the amount of water to drink per day in ounces. Dehydration ensures you will be much more likely to suffer serious problems from any infectious process. Conventional medicine has little to offer to prevent or treat coronavirus infection other than washing your hands. It is time for you to take the initiative and learn what other therapies are out there. Your conventional doctor simply has no effective tools in his or her toolkit for this.
As for getting the flu shot? Fugetaboutit. It won’t help corona infections and there was a study which found an increased risk in non-influenza infections, including coronavirus, in those that received the trivalent flu vaccine. My last recommendation is to work with a holistic doctor who can give you nutrient IVs when you become ill. Vitamin C, hydrogen peroxide, and ozone IVs can help anyone suffering from an infection.
