Preventing / Treating Covid-19

Return to main index menu

When I learned how easy it is to prevent and even home treat Covid for the vast majority of Americans, I didn’t know whether to sit down and cry or explode from overwhelming anger. All the needless deaths from Covid, the overwhelming despair that led too many to suicide, the lock downs – destroying businesses, jobs and our children’s education.

It would be too easy for me to break out into a tirade here, but the focus here is how to prevent catching Covid in the first place, and what to do if you do catch it. If you do, you need to start treatment early. That is the simple reason we have had too many deaths – people denied knowledge until the virus had aggressively spread through the body. Too many people went to the doctor and the hospital, were told they weren’t that sick and to go home and take Tylenol. They were instructed to return if their illness worsened.

Early is key…

The fact is, Covid-19 is 1 of 7 coronaviruses. Four are colds and Covid-19, like the other two, are upper respiratory viruses – aka, a type of annual flu. And the treatment is exactly the same.

You may have already seen on one of the other index pages, the WHO (World Health Organization) accidentally admitted Covid-19 is no more deadly than the annual flu we deal with every year… roughly .14% mortality rate. The treatment is the same: vitamins C and D and zinc. Whenever most of us feel a cold or the flu coming on, we go to the store and pick up some Airborne or other similar type of natural treatment. These contain the items listed above, as well as natural herbs to help build up your immune system, such as quercetin, elderberry or echinacea. In 2 or 3 days, we are back to our old selves. However, if we delay too long from using these products, the virus has had time to spread further and it is much more difficult for these home treatments to work.

However, if you have some underlying health problems and need an extra boost, you might find hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin helpful. These two have been on the WHO’s list of essential medications for decades and are considered some of the safest medications in the world.

Both help the body’s cells absorb the zinc much better so it can stop the virus from replicating. Another and natural form, which is found in many foods, is quercetin.

Telehealth is a growing method of seeing the doctor. If your doctor or state is blocking your ability to get hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin, you can now connect with a doctor in another state.

Dr. Corsi has conducted a series of “deep dive” interviews with licensed physicians who have provided evidence that Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) combined with Zinc is proving to be an effective treatment for those suffering from COVID-19 as well as preventive effects for those who are not infected.

Dr. Anthony Cardillo, M.D. is CEO of Mend Urgent Care of Los Angeles, California. His testimony is startling, according to ABC Affiliate, Channel 11:

“Every patient I’ve prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free,” Cardillo told Eyewitness News. “So clinically I am seeing a resolution.”

America’s Frontline Doctors

“This is the culmination of months-long research from all sources. It explains how Americans have come to be in the grip of fear. All the myths and all the misconceptions about a safe, generic drug that has been FDA approved for 65 years, given to pregnant women, breastfeeding women, children, the elderly and the immune-compromised for years and decades without complication, are finally put in the trash heap where they belong. You will have the indisputable proof that you have been massively lied to, often very intentionally.”

Vitamin D deficiency (77% more chance of catching Covid)

“…the idea that adequate vitamin D levels could prevent COVID-19 is supported by the meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials by Martineau et al3 that found vitamin D treatment of persons with vitamin D deficiency can reduce other viral respiratory infections, among which coronaviruses are common causative organisms. Although that meta-analysis suggests benefits of vitamin D supplementation in people who are vitamin D deficient, it also reports smaller but statistically significant effects of supplementation even in people whose vitamin D levels are sufficient by current standards.”

Ivermectin summary of studies:

Ivermectin (like hydroxychloroquine) is quite effective against Covid. Over 300,000 have died in the U.S. that didn’t need to, but Fauci, NIH, NIAID, FDA, CDC have blocked both. Controlled trials studying the prevention of COVID-19(7 trials completed).

• 4 RCT’s with large statistically significant reductions in transmission rates, a total of 851 patients

•3 OCT’s with large statistically significant reductions in transmission rates, a total of 1,688 patients Controlled trials in the early, outpatient treatment of COVID-19 (5 trials completed)

• 2 RCT’s with large, significant reductions in deterioration/hospitalization, a total of 1,085 patients

• 2 RCT’s with significant decreases in viral load, days of anosmia, cough, or time to recovery Controlled trials in late phase treatment of the hospitalized patients (12 trials completed)

• 2 RCT’s with large, significant reductions in mortality, a total of 720 patients

• 3 OCT’s with large, statistically significant reductions in mortality, a total of 1,688 patients

America’s Frontline Physicians

“In a shameful move, the NIH declared NO treatment of SARS-CoV-2 patients unless the patient is hospitalized and requires oxygen. This is contrary to all the evidence and contrary to all of the history of the practice of medicine and all the evidence to date regarding managing this virus. Attached is the disgraceful NIH statement but also the early treatment protocol published in the American Journal of Medicine. There are currently over 100 studies showing HCQ is effective in early treatment.”

Don’t doubt hydroxychloroquine because Trump is taking it. It may work. | Opinion

“On March 21, hydroxychloroquine, or HCQ, turned from a promising COVID drug to a dangerous gamble, without good reason. That’s when President Trump, referring to preliminary studies in which patients got well, endorsed it as a “potential game-changer.” On Monday, Trump said he has been taking it daily for the past 10 days as a hedge against becoming infected by the virus.”

Six new studies show hydroxychloroquine can save lives in COVID-19 fight

“If you only listened to the mainstream media, you might believe that hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 treatment was a joke. “That’s the one that President Trump supported,” you’d think, “but they found out it’s too dangerous.” After a slew of negative news stories based on questionable studies, many stopped considering it a viable treatment.”

Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine: what to know about the potential coronavirus drugs

As of January 16, 2021, there are now 230 studies that prove hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine are effective against coronaviruses, including Covid-19, especially if given early in the illness. In the early days of Covid-19, some remembered a 2005 study that proved they were effective against Covid and were quick to try it.

At the same time, Fauci and Birx were laying the ground work to discredit hydroxychloroquine. If it were discovered there was an effective, safe and inexpensive treatment, there would be no need for expensive treatments and vaccines – and Big Pharma would not make billions.

“Dr. Deborah Birx, Vice President Mike Pence’s coronavirus response coordinator and another regular at Trump’s news conferences, said in a Fox News interview last week that people should not confuse the drugs showing “promise” in other countries with actual efficacy.

That doesn’t mean that it will show promise in Americans,” she told the news outlet. “It showed promise in the test tubes. We are very interested in making sure we have eliminated red tape to make the drug available through their physicians, and study it at the same time. At the same time, we are doing clinical trials on other products we think also will show promise.

That doesn’t mean that it will show promise in Americans,”? What does that mean? Why would effectiveness be any different for Americans than say Australians, Frenchmen or people in Africa?

Preventative Home Treatment for Covid-19 (all other colds and the annual flu)

Unbelievably, the CDC, FDA and the NIH forbid doctors and hospitals to provide any treatment for the early stages of Covid. The only advice they are allowed to give is to go home, self-isolate and take Tylenol.

To that end, preventative treatment is the best course of action. 70% – 80% of the body’s immune system is in the gut microbiome, so a healthy gut makes for a healthier body. Reduce sugar and white flour intake. There are substitutes for both, such as natural fruit sugar like Truvia or Monkfruit. Instead of white flour, try whole wheat flour, oat or buckwheat flour, almond flour or others.

Sometimes, simply substituting half of the sugar and flour with an alternative can make a big difference in improving the health of the gut. Adding foods high in probiotics, such as Fage Greek yogurt (authentic Greek yogurt), kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, buttermilk, cheeses, such as cheddar, mozzarella and Gouda, as well as cottage cheese to your diet increases the healthy bacteria in your gut.

I, myself, make homemade Kombucha… a fermented tea. With a little patience, it is easy to do and I can make any flavor I want. A cup or two a day is very helpful.

Another option is apple cider vinegar. Simply add 1 – 1 1/2 teaspoons in 2 cups of water before breakfast kills the bad bacteria in the gut and feeds the good bacteria.

The above lists option to improve your overall gut health, which leads to a better immune system and improves brain functionality. To reduce your chances of catching Covid or only dealing with little to no symptoms, there are a few other precautions you can take. The following information is provided by Dr. Zelenko of New York. Dr. Zelenko has quite successfully treated many with Covid, the key being early treatment.

This is the protocol to use for preventative treatment:

Home Treatment for Early Stages of Covid-19

If you suspect you have Covid and are unable to get treatment from a doctor or hospital, you do have the option of using telehealth with America’s Frontline Physicians or others who provide a similar service. It would probably be wise to discuss with them Dr. Zelenko’s home treatment plan:

RA and Hydroxychloroquine: How Effective is it for Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Hydroxychloroquine, for Covid-19, works by making zinc more absorbable into the human cells. Zinc in turn, stops the virus from replicating while it is hiding in the cells.

Hydroxychloroquine is effective against more than just Covid-19. It was first developed as a safer alternative against malaria. In the years since it was developed, 1955, it has also been found to be effective against rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and is used to protect the hearts of babies in the womb when the mother suffers from an autoimmune disease. More recently, new studies show it may help against some cancers.

The more you know, the more you wonder why it has been trashed.

Hydroxychloroquine Has Already Been Classified as One of the Most ‘Efficacious’ Medicines in the World

“The World Health Organization (WHO) annually publishes its “Model list of Essential Medicines,” a chronicle of top-rated treatments that are already tested and approved for use globally.

Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ)—a medicine touted as an effective treatment for COVID-19 by some doctors around the world and by the Trump administration—appears on that list, which according to the WHO catalogs “the most efficacious, safe and cost-effective medicines for priority conditions.”

Safety of Long term use of Hydroxychloroquine Therapy Further Verified for People with Lupus

Hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil®) was approved by the Food and Drug Administration for symptoms of lupus. The greatest concern people with lupus have when taking hydroxychloroquine is related to vision and an increase in risk for retinal damage. A new investigation analyzed the retinal changes over a five-year period in people with lupus and did not find clinically relevant retinal changes in the group. The study concludes that hydroxychloroquine therapy is safe for long-term use at doses <5 mg/kg/day.

Cover Up: Fauci Approved Chloroquine, Hydroxychloroquine 15 Years Ago to Cure Coronaviruses; “Nobody Needed to Die”

The Virology Journal – the official publication of Dr. Fauci’s National Institutes of Health – published what is now a blockbuster article on August 22, 2005, under the heading – get ready for this – “Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread.” Write the researchers, “We report…that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage.”

This means, of course, that Dr. Fauci has known for 15 years that chloroquine and it’s even milder derivative hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) will not only treat a current case of coronavirus (“therapeutic”) but prevent future cases (“prophylactic”). So HCQ functions as both a cure and a vaccine. In other words, it’s a wonder drug for coronavirus. Said Dr. Fauci’s NIH in 2005, “concentrations of 10 μM completely abolished SARS-CoV infection.” Fauci’s researchers add, “chloroquine can effectively reduce the establishment of infection and spread of SARS-CoV.”

Lupus Drug Prevents Low Heartbeat in High-Risk Newborns: Study

“FRIDAY, July 17, 2020 — A drug used to treat lupus and malaria — hydroxychloroquine — reduced by half the risk of a potentially fatal heart condition in newborns who were at high risk for it.

The condition — known as congenital heart block (CHB) — results in a dangerously low heart rate.

“Our study shows hydroxychloroquine as the first, safe, and highly effective drug for preventing pregnant women at risk from having another child with congenital heart block,” said lead author and rheumatologist Dr. Peter Izmirly, associate professor of medicine at NYU Langone Health in New York City.”

The Truth About Hydroxychloroquine

“At a recent post by Glenn Reynolds, one commenter wrote “I suspect when the history of this virus is written this is going to be one of the very ugly chapters – the resistance to using the HCQ drug cocktail early in the process. The number of lives it would have saved will be staggering.”  Another commenter wrote “As most know, the media/Democrat politicians/FDA want the use of the hydroxychloroquine/azithromycin/zinc combination to be restricted until late in the course of the infection, when the patient’s infection is well-advanced.  As a physician, this baffles me.  I can’t think of a single infectious condition — bacterial, fungal, or viral — where the best medical treatment is to delay the use of a anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, or anti-viral until the infection is far advanced.””

Hydroxychloroquine Cocktails: How Many Anecdotes Does it Take to Change a Light Bulb, Dr. Fauci?

From very early on in the Covid-19 pandemic, doctors around the world were talking about great success using hydroxychloroquine, with and without zinc and azithromycin. Entire nursing homes of residents surviving, small studies in various countries, individuals thinking they were on the brink of death… many success stories. And yet Fauci waved them away as nothing, calling them anecdotal.

When a virus is spreading rapidly around the world, why would anyone ignore, denigrate any treatment with false claims?

“The “experts,” especially Dr. Fauci, keep telling us that the actual positive clinical results many doctors around the country and around the world are reporting for a medicine “cocktail” of hydroxychloroquine, plus azithromycin, plus zinc, are just “anecdotal.” We need large scale, randomized, double-blind, controlled studies in order to determine its effectiveness as a curative treatment for patients suffering the mortal threat of the rapid advancement of Covid-19.”

Covid-19 Studies / Trials

Hundreds of studies have been done on various treatments for Covid-19, most that never makes the news… very well hidden in plain site. This website provides you access to that information, all in one place. The c19study.com website defaults to the hydroxychloroquine studies, but at the top are the links to other treatments. Simply click on the treatment you want to learn more about:

We repeatedly hear use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is either anecdotal or harmful. We never hear about the hundreds of studies being done on HCQ and the proof of how well it works when given early, especially when combined with vitamin D, C and zinc and maybe azithromycin, which is used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria, such as respiratory infections, skin infections, ear infections, eye infections, and sexually transmitted diseases.

Entry into the website displays all of the studies / trials, with the most recent listed first.

Early treatment with hydroxychloroquine: a country-based analysis

Quite impressively, an ongoing analysis of hydroxychloroquine shows the results in countries that use it early for treatment versus countries that have banned its use, or delayed it until the virus is widespread throughout the body.

The analysis of deaths is done on a per capita basis: “To determine the effectiveness of treatment we could compare the death rates for the entire populations in the treatment and control groups, however we use the average of the individual country rates in each group in order to minimize effects due to differences between countries. Since randomization was done at a coarse country level, we adjust for differences between countries and analyze confounding factors.”

Deaths are analyzed “rather than cases because case numbers are highly dependent on the degree of testing effort, criteria for testing, the accuracy and availability of tests, accuracy of reporting, and because there is very high variability in case severity, including a high percentage of asymptomatic cases.”

This information is updated regularly. As of November 14, 2020, those receiving treatment including hydroxychloroquine have 267.8 deaths per million , while those that have banned or severely limit the use of hydroxychloroquine have 889.8 deaths per million… a huge difference.

Despite the Media Lies – Study Shows Hydroxychloroquine Can Provide a 50-70% Chance of Recovery from the China Coronavirus

“Despite what you previously heard about Hydroxychloroquine’s ineffectiveness for fighting the COVID-19 virus, new studies provide almost overwhelming proof of the opposite.  Everyone owes it to themselves and their loved ones to do their homework so they understand the real truth about current treatment options based on the most timely and credible information. For yours and your loved ones sake,  I urge you to not make a life and death decision based on politics or inaccurate news reporting.”

The Key to Defeating COVID-19 Already Exists. We Need to Start Using It

HARVEY A. RISCH, MD, PHD , PROFESSOR OF EPIDEMIOLOGY, YALE SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH

“I am fighting for a treatment that the data fully support but which, for reasons having nothing to do with a correct understanding of the science, has been pushed to the sidelines. As a result, tens of thousands of patients with COVID-19 are dying unnecessarily. Fortunately, the situation can be reversed easily and quickly.

I am referring, of course, to the medication hydroxychloroquine. When this inexpensive oral medication is given very early in the course of illness, before the virus has had time to multiply beyond control, it has shown to be highly effective, especially when given in combination with the antibiotics azithromycin or doxycycline and the nutritional supplement zinc.”

Autumn COVID-19 surge dates in Europe correlated to latitudes, not to temperature-humidity, pointing to vitamin D as contributing factor

“The study proves no correlation between the country surge date and the 2 weeks preceding temperature or humidity but shows an impressive linear correlation with latitude. The country surge date corresponds to the time when its sun UV daily dose drops below ≈ 34% of that of 0° latitude.

As already evidenced by previous correlation studies10, a low 25(OH)D concentration should be considered a contributing factor to COVID-19 severity.

Europe and the northern USA are starting a long COVID-19 crisis this autumn, as they will return to a level above the October sun UV daily dose only at the end of March 2021.

Measures to reduce the pandemic severity during the coming winter using controlled preventive vitamin D supplementation should be considered.”

• Low-dose hydroxychloroquine combined with zinc and azithromycin was an effective therapeutic approach against COVID-19.

• Significantly reduced hospitalisation rates in the treatment group.

• Reduced mortality rates in the treatment group.”

“Therefore, the odds of hospitalisation of treated patients was 84% less than in the untreated patients.”

Pathophysiological Basis and Rationale for Early Outpatient Treatment of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Infection

With any illness, early treatment is key. Not only because early treatment allows the fight to begin before the virus overwhelms the body, but early treatment is done on an outpatient basis. Hospitals are not overwhelmed and any patients hospitalized for non-Covid reasons are less likely to be exposed to the virus.

When hospitals are not overwhelmed, they can focus on other health needs, such as cancer treatments or heart problems. Too many people were denied such treatment because of the fear they might catch Covid… and now they are paying the price.


“Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is an antimalarial/anti-inflammatory drug that impairs endosomal transfer of virions within human cells. HCQ is also a zinc ionophore that conveys zinc intracellularly to block the SARS-CoV-2 RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, which is the core enzyme of the virus replication.21 The currently completed retrospective studies and randomized trials have generally shown these findings: 1) when started late in the hospital course and for short durations of time, antimalarials appear to be ineffective, 2) when started earlier in the hospital course, for progressively longer durations and in outpatients, antimalarials may reduce the progression of disease, prevent hospitalization, and are associated with reduced mortality.”

“It is well-recognized that COVID-19 exists outside the human body in a bioaerosol of airborne particles and droplets. Because exhaled air in an infected person is considered to be “loaded” with inoculum, each exhalation and inhalation is effectively reinoculation.15 In patients who are hospitalized, negative pressure is applied to the room air largely to reduce spread outside of the room. We propose that fresh air could reduce reinoculation and potentially reduce the severity of illness and possibly reduce household spread during quarantine. This calls for open windows, fans for aeration, or spending long periods of time outdoors away from others with no face covering to disperse and not reinhale the viral bioaerosol.”
