Below are some helpful links to help boost your immune system. Nobody seems to be talking about preventative things we can do to fight this virus. Before you start taking any supplements, do your own research and talk to your physician.

I found out about this vitamin regimen back in July. I had developed many of the Covid-19 symptoms and ordered these vitamins and supplements online. Not all of them arrived at the same time. The last thing to come in was Quercetin. Once I added it with the zinc, vitamin C, vitamin D, NAC, and alkaline water, I felt much better within 24 hours and completely back to normal within 2-3 days.

A former student of mine tested positive for Covid-19 and his father had the same symptoms but wasn't tested. I brought them this regimen the same day of the positive test result. Within 24 hours they were feeling much better and within 2-3 days they were completely symptom free other than the son still had a sore throat (which I don't think was Covid-19 related). I've also given this regimen to another family and a few customers who all tested positive. All survived and none were hospitalized. All felt normal within 2-3 days after being on this regimen.

I also found out my chiropractor and my optometrist (along with ALL of their staff), are taking these vitamins and supplements (vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, Quercetin, Elderberry - instead of NAC) and none of them have gotten sick with Covid-19.

DISCLAIMER: Always consult your physician before adding any new vitamins or supplements to your diet. DO NOT take any of the maximum doses for an extended period of time (over 7-10 days). Be sure to read each pill label for minimum and maximum dosage information.

Here is what Dr Seheult recommends to help prevent Covid-19 (see video link below). Also listed below are the video times where you can find each vitamin and supplement discussed in the video.

1) Liposomal Vitamin C (2:14)
2) Vitamin D with K (4:21)
3) Quercetin (7:02)
4) NAC (8:17)
5) Zinc (9:47)


The following over-the-counter vitamins and supplements can be found at Amazon.com and Walmart.com.

1) Liposomal Vitamin C (600mg - 1800mg 1-3x day) - is an anti-inflammatory and antiviral. Specifically liposomal vitamin C has a much higher absorption rate than regular vitamin C (from ascorbic acid) and the only thing better is intravenous vitamin C. Vitamin C also helps reduce the risk of developing pneumonia and lung infections, lowers the risk of stroke, aides in the formation of collagen, absorption of iron which helps with hair growth, immune function, wound healing, skin repair, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. Warning, too much vitamin C can cause diarrhea.



2) Vitamin D (25mcg-100 mcg per day) - helps with the absorption and regulation of calcium, magnesium, and phosphate. It also helps with cellular growth, immune function, weight loss, bone health, skin and hair growth, nerve and muscle function, reduces inflammation, reduces depression, and reduces the risk of MS, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. People who are at risk of not getting enough vitamin D are those with darker skin pigmentation (they have a built-in natural sunscreen called melanin which keeps the skin from synthesizing vitamin D), obesity is an important factor because fat cells absorb vitamin D and keep it from circulating throughout the bloodstream, age plays a role in vitamin D deficiency because older people absorb less vitamin D from their diet and produce less from the sun, and vitamin D deficiency also plays a role with high blood pressure. Multiple studies have proven the effectiveness of vitamin D towards fighting Covid-19. In a study from Indonesia looking at 780 Covid-19 patients (without taking into consideration how old a patient was or any underlying health conditions), those with normal vitamin D levels had a death rate of 4%. In patients with insufficient levels of vitamin D, the death rate was 88%. In patients with deficient levels of vitamin D, death rate was 99%. However, too much vitamin D can cause heart palpitations and headaches.



3) Quercetin (500mg 2x day) - has the ability to interfere with the enzyme in your cells that the coronavirus requires to get in your cells and begin replicating. This is because Quercetin is a zinc ionophore. A zinc ionophore helps to activate the port which allows zinc to enter a cell. Once in the cell, zinc is then able to block the enzyme RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, which turns off viral replication. It also helps to lower blood pressure, seasonal allergies, chronic inflammation, cancer treatment, and heart disease. Warning, if you are pregnant or have kidney problems consult your doctor who may tell you to avoid Quercetin.



4) NAC also called N-Acetyl Cysteine (600mg 2x day) - is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that helps shorten cold, flu, & sinus infections. It is used to increase levels of glutathione, which is one of the body's most important antioxidants and helps with detoxification. It also helps diminish and prevent liver and kidney damage, helps people with sleeping issues, helps relieve symptoms of respiratory conditions by reducing inflammation in your bronchial tubes and lung tissue, and may reduce heart disease risk by reducing oxidative damage to tissues in your heart. It also helps burn fat more effectively through its ability to improve insulin sensitivity, which means it helps the body use insulin more efficiently to help treat Type 2 diabetes. NAC's ability to replenish & regulate glutamate levels helps improve brain health for conditions like Alzheimer's, depression, anxiety, insomnia, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD), and other addictive behaviors. Warning, if you are pregnant, have asthma, have bleeding problems, or have high blood pressure, consult your doctor who may tell you to avoid NAC.



5) Zinc (30mg - 50mg per day as a preventative or up to 100mg per day when sick) - it is well known that zinc (Zn) possesses a variety of direct and indirect antiviral properties. It also helps with hair and nail growth, helps to balance sex hormones (including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, etc), helps with immune function, reduces inflammatory response, and helps with wound healing. Zinc also protects or stabilizes the cell membrane, which contributes to the blocking of the virus into the cell and inhibits viral replication. A zinc deficiency can cause skin rashes, chronic diarrhea, poor wound healing, poor immune function, behavioral issues, and can even reduce your ability to taste or smell. Zinc deficiency is caused by a low zinc intake or poor zinc absorption, which is common in the elderly population and individuals with underlying diseases (two groups that are more prone to severe COVID-19). Multiple studies have shown that a significant number of COVID-19 patients who were zinc deficient ended up developing more complications, had prolonged hospital stays, and a higher death rate. Warning, too much zinc can cause a decrease in copper levels in your body, cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, metallic taste, headaches, kidney and stomach cramps, and other side effects.



6) Alkaline Water (20-40oz 1x daily) - this was not mentioned in the above video, but has been mentioned in other videos. It is used to raise your alkaline levels and it is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Warning, too much alkaline water can cause headaches.

Has anyone here heard about the Reme Halo? Does anyone have one installed in their business or home? It is an air purification system that can be added to any HVAC system and has been proven to kill viruses in the past. It can be used to help eliminate the spread of viruses in any indoor building or home.

You can even reduce common allergy triggers from particulates such as pollen, mold spores, dander and dust. Thoroughly tested on airborne and surface bacteria & viruses, such as MRSA, e-coli, and Norwalk, to name a few. Additionally, you can say goodbye to odors from cooking, pets, dirty socks, diaper pails, musty locker rooms, etc.

Vitamin D deficiency seems to be the biggest factor as to whether a person has mild or severe symptoms. Everyone should be taking a vitamin D supplement.

For some reason, certain people do not produce enough vitamin D or any at all, which is why it's important to take a vitamin D supplement. Check out the importance of vitamin D towards fighting this virus.

VITAMIN D
1) normal levels = death rate 4%
2) insufficient levels = death rate 88%
3) deficient levels = death rate 99%



Some doctors using Vitamin D for COVID-19 prevention & treatment.


Over 80% of Hospitalized COVID-19 Patients Have Vitamin D Deficiency, Study Finds.



Two population groups most commonly affected by Vitamin D deficiencies are African Americans and the elderly, the two groups also most impacted by COVID-19.


African Americans tend to be more deficient in Vitamin D.

If you know anyone that ends up with pneumonia or on a ventilator, you should consider forwarding this video to that family. This video aired on the TV Show 60 Minutes.

This older gentleman almost died from swine flu. He ended up in ICU with white-out pneumonia on a ventilator (which is happening to some severe cases of Covid-19 patients). They were going to pull the plug on him, but his family insisted they try high doses of vitamin C (25gm) administered intravenously.

Zinc is a decidedly anti-viral mineral. High intracellular concentrations inhibit the replication of RNA type viruses. Zinc does this by blocking RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp), the core enzyme of their multiprotein replication and transcription complex that is critical for the copying of viral RNA.


In high concentrations, zinc can block coronavirus reproduction. Enter zinc ionophores, which act as facilitators to enhance the entry of zinc into the cell.

Over-the-counter supplements like quercetin and to a lesser extent EGCG (green tea) are zinc ionophores. As of the summer of 2020, quercetin plus zinc was being tested as an anti-viral in human clinical trials for the treatment of Covid-19. Plans are underway for a large scale trial in China for patients with Covid-19.

So how zinc ionophores work? Zinc ions stay outside the cell. The cell’s membrane and binding molecules limit the ability of zinc to penetrate into the cell. A zinc ionophore activates the port to allow zinc to enter a cell. Once in the cell, zinc is then able to block the enzyme RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, which turns off viral replication.

The use of NAC in Covid-19 patients has shown to decrease the chances of a Cytokine Storm.

After systemic administration, N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is rapidly converted to cysteine, which is a precursor to glutathione, leading to significant increases in plasma and alveolar glutathione concentrations. Glutathione is an antioxidant that is frequently depleted in patients with oxidative stress or systemic inflammation, including those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and acute respiratory distress syndrome. Administration of NAC leads to anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects in a number of pulmonary diseases, including viral pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndromes.

NAC also has the ability to disrupt respiratory mucus. Because patients with COVID-19 have evidence of systemic inflammation (including possible cytokine release syndrome), they often have their course complicated by respiratory mucus buildup limiting adequate airflow (such as endotracheal tube obstruction due to mucus). Therefore, NAC may be beneficial in this specific patient population.

However, there does not seem to be a role for NAC supplementation to prevent COVID-19. NAC may improve outcomes in patients with established COVID-19 and should be further studied. Start the video below at 6:01.
