Real COVID prevention means addressing the obesity and chronic disease epidemic, but the feds don’t have a clue. Action Alert! COVID has killed more than 750,000 Americans and caused more than three million hospitalizations. Yet the virus is not an indiscriminate killer. We know that people with underlying conditions like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease are far more likely to experience the worst effects of COVID if they become infected. Addressing the chronic disease epidemic would take us a long way in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, but the government is totally lost on this point. Part of this plan should be to make dietary supplements more available to Americans, which is accomplished by new federal legislation—we must support it. Read more.

Congress is poised to make it harder to use natural medicine to stave off COVID-19 and other illnesses. Action Alert! There’s good news and bad news. The good news is that new research confirms that vitamin D is a crucial weapon in the fight against COVID. The bad news is that Congress is working on a policy that will make it easier for the FDA to target and eliminate supplements like some forms of vitamin D from the market. We need to make sure this bad idea does not become law. Read more.
veryone knows that vitamin C is important for immunity. Sales of both oranges and vitamin C tablets have risen sharply during the Covid pandemic. Indeed, a review of twelve studies, including five “gold standard” randomized controlled trials, shows that this simple vitamin saves lives when given in the right dose. Vitamin C can prevent a serious Covid infection. The scientific evidence is clear: vitamin C taken when infected can reduce Covid symptoms and duration of illness. So why aren’t we being told to supplement with vitamin C? Read more.
We have much to learn about preventing and treating cancer. Each disease in the cohort of cancers is potentially a different disease related to the specific genetic mutations that drive it. In the interest of promoting further efforts to improve our understanding of these complex diseases, here is an update on research involving three essential nutrients: vitamin C, selenium (selenite and methyl selenocysteine), and vitamin E (delta tocotrienol).

Few people know about how difficult things are for the people of Philippines as concerns Covid. The Philippines has recently been ranked last out of 121 countries: last in response, economy and mobility of the population, and that’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg of woes. For the past 20 months of the Pandemic, it has been a fantasy-based irregular cycle of lockdowns and curfews, just like a person unable to get their life back to some sense of normalcy, due to the unpredictable nature of their ills. The unpredictability and impulsive government response created and/or resulted in business, health and social decline never before seen since the end of World War II with its GDP contracted 9.5% in 2020.

New science says supplements can help with COVID-19, but the feds say you’re not allowed to learn about it. Action Alert! Stunning new studies demonstrate how supplements can improve COVID-19 outcomes. This adds to existing research on a variety of natural compounds showing the plausibility of using supplements to prevent or treat COVID-19. Yet, as we’ve been saying for some time, federal rules prevent Americans from taking advantage of these beneficial products. Read more.
Quercetin has been in the news lately, particularly as one of many potential therapeutics that might have some benefit in the prevention or treatment of COVID infection. Is there anything to this? Read more.
While much of the world is in lock-down mode over potential coronavirus infection and global drug manufacturers fast-track a risky vaccine, nature has provided us with an array of powerful virus fighters that can boost overall immunity and help protect against viral infections. Best of all, these all-natural health boosters are easy to source, economical and have minimal risk of adverse effects. In short, they are a logical first line of defense against health threats from near and far. Read more.
This story began with initial discovery, motivated by necessity. It would lead a few years later to reproducible documented reversal of chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages 1 or 2. Success was achieved using 3 to 5 cents/day of 100-500mg niacin TID [three times a day] along with 1.0-1.8 grams of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda, 600mg at lunch and 1.2g before bed) with or without < 2g/day elemental calcium, as calcium carbonate.

Tragically, there have been over 700,000 Covid-19 deaths in the United States. Perhaps it is time to consider that in addition to drug therapies, physicians in the United States might also want to use treatments that are based on optimum nutritional support for their patients. For example, in Spain, physicians are treating their Covid-19 patients with high doses of vitamin D, and they have discovered some amazing results. A 76-patient 2020 study in October 2020 discovered that of 50 hospitalized COVID-19 patients who were given oral calcifediol: (0.532 mg, ~20,000 IU, on admission and 0.266 mg, ~10,000 IU, several days thereafter) of vitamin D, only one (2%) needed treatment in the intensive care unit and there were no deaths. In contrast, among the 26-remaining COVID-19 patients who were not given vitamin D, 13 (50%) needed to be treated in the intensive care unit and two died. Read more.
