Surprising New Info on the Virus

“According to Nobel-prize-winning scientist Michael Levitt, the rate of SARS-CoV-2 mortality never experienced exponential growth, as was predicted, which suggests a majority of people may have had some sort of prior resistance or immunity. He believes that both some degree of prior immunity and large numbers of asymptomatic cases are important factors. He describes indiscriminate lockdown measures as ‘a huge mistake,’ and advocates a ‘smart lockdown’ policy, focused on … protecting elderly people.”

A study published on May 14, 2020, in the journal Cell, found 40% to 60% of people who had not been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 still had resistance to the virus on the T-cell level. According to the authors, this suggests there’s “cross-reactive” T cell recognition between circulating ‘common cold’ coronaviruses and SARS-CoV-2. In other words, exposure to coronaviruses that cause the common cold appears to allow your immune system to recognize and fight off SARS-CoV-2 as well. Professor Karl Friston, another statistician whose expertise is in mathematical modeling, believes resistance or prior immunity could be as high as 80%.1

This is good news! Fending off COVID-19 has a lot do with the immune system. And we have a great deal of control over our immunity. I’m reprinting what I post in a past newsletter regarding how to keep your immunity strong.

You can strengthen your immune system and keep any infection from becoming a serious threat. Here are some things we should all be doing at this time along with washing our hands.  Self-care is THE MOST important thing you can do.

1. Eat raw garlic every day. Raw garlic has anti-viral properties.  It’s a big boost to your immune system. You can juice up a garlic shot— carrots, lemon, ginger, and garlic. Or you can just finely chop up a clove at night and swallow with water before going to bed.

2. Ginger — turmeric shots.  Juice 1 oz of ginger and 1 oz turmeric and mix with an ounce of lemon juice. Take this every day. It’s an immune builder in a shot glass.

3. Don’t eat any sugar. Sugar depresses the immune system. It beats out vitamin C and leaves immune cells weekend and unable to fight like champs. Reduce alcohol. It turns to sugar quickly.

4. Increase your vitamin C. I’m taking between 5,000 and 6,000 mg daily. Find your ideal amount by taking to bowel tolerance (loose stool) and then cutting back 500 mg. (See below for a good Vitamin C supplement with flavonoids, making it more absorbable.

5. Wheatgrass juice. Wheatgrass is a major immune builder. If you can’t juice wheatgrass, get SweetWheat. Watercress is also excellent.  It’s a key ingredient in Garden’s Best Superfoods.

6. Zinc. If the immune system can’t stop a virus from replicating, it goes into overdrive and ramps up inflammation, especially in the lungs. This is what causes viral pneumonia. One of the fierce reactions with Covid-19 is an over-reactive immune response causing severe respiratory infection. A study from Ohio State University shows that zinc “helps control infections by gently tapping the brakes on the immune response in a way that prevents out-of-control inflammation that can be damaging and even deadly.”1 One of the symptoms of zinc deficiency is diminished taste and smell. One of the symptoms for some people with Covid-19 is the loss of taste and smell. I have found no studies or information looking at this correlation, but I do find it interesting.

7. Quercetin. One of the most well-studied attributes of quercetin, however, is its antiviral capacity, which has been attributed to three main mechanisms of action:

  • Inhibiting the virus’ ability to infect cells    
  • Inhibiting replication of already infected cells                  
  • Reducing infected cells’ resistance to treatment with antiviral medication

Research funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, published in 2007, found quercetin lowers your risk of viral illness following extreme physical stress, which might otherwise undermine your immune function and render you more susceptible to infections.

8. Homemade chicken soup really is “Jewish penicillin” It has a mild anti-inflammatory effect according to a University of Nebraska Medical Center study. It slows the migration of white blood cells into the upper respiratory tract, which helps relieve symptoms.

9. Exercise supports your immune system. It can flush bacteria out of your lungs, reducing your chance of picking up an airborne illness, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine.

10. Get some sun. Vitamin D is an immune builder.

11. Tap your thymus gland each and every day.  It is a specialized primary lymphoid organ of the immune system where T cells mature. It is located in the upper anterior (front) part of your chest directly behind your sternum and between your lungs. This helps to stimulate the gland.

12.  Sleep like your health depended on it. …because it does.  This is not the time to stay up late or go out for a late night event. Lack of sleep can wreak havoc on your immune system

13.  Fear Not!!!  Kick that fear right out the front door.  Fear can actually weaken the immune system. Be prudent and take care of yourself. But don’t let fear come in.

14.  Hydrochloroquine has been shown to be effective against COVID-19. Basically, Chloroquine phosphate increases the endosomal pH and interferes with terminal glycosylation due to which the virus cannot survive. Combined with zinc it is even more effective. Several studies have reported that zinc has a broad-spectrum antiviral activity against a variety of viruses. Increased intracellular zinc concentrations inhibit RNA-dependent, RNA polymerases, and other proteins essential for the completion of different phases of the virus life cycle. Further, zinc also helps to maintain robust immune responses by producing cytokine and by modulation of immune cell activity.

Testimony for Quercetin

This testimony was sent to me from one of my newsletter readers:

“I wanted to let you know my hubby and I overcame COVID 19 with Quercetin – per Dr Mercola’s article. I was almost asymptomatic in 24hrs and am just getting my strength back.”  —Zan

Word of caution:  Be very careful about getting a COVID virus vaccination, especially early on. They are rushing this process without the testing to make good analysis, which takes time. Numerous health professionals, I’ve listened to state that RNA vaccinations can be very dangerous. Early COVID vaccine trials are not showing positive results but rather death and serious health reactions landing people in ICU.
