Most Americans have no idea what to do to prepare for COVID-19 or how to protect themselves. This step-by-step COVID-19 Quick Reference Guide is meant to help you prepare yourself and protect your life.
THREE FACTS TO KNOW:
1. COVID-19 is a clotting disease. COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) is an inflammatory and clotting disease. It is not a lung disease. “If you don’t stop the clotting, the patient’s dead,” says Dr. Darrell DeMello, MD, who has treated more than 6,000 patients in India, with only 35 hospitalizations and 14 deaths (all of them with diabetes). NOTE: Omicron variant may turn out to be less virulent.
2. The first seven days are critically important. “It’s just a viral disease for a week; then it’s an inflammatory disease,” said Dr. Richard Urso, MD.* He says, “People don’t die of the virus. They die of inflammation. They die of thrombosis [clotting].”1 “Covid is a 14-day disease,” says DeMello. “Week 1 leads up to the tsunami [cytokine storm]. The tsunami sets off the damage. The damage is clotting. Clotting really occurs between day 8 to day 10, and up to day 11, if you haven’t had clotting you’re pretty much on the road to recovery.” Therefore, don’t delay seeking treatment.
3. You have effective options to protect yourself: To reduce infection and death: 1) begin prophylaxis to prevent infection (e.g., ivermectin, dilute hydrogen-peroxide or povidone-iodine nasal rinses, certain antiseptic mouth washes) or 2) To stop viral replication, seek early and aggressive treatment as soon as symptoms begin, including dilute povidone-iodine or hydrogen peroxide nasal rinses to kill the virus where it’s replicating. If successful, this will prevent your body’s immune system from going into overdrive (inflammatory cytokine storm) and prevent clotting (microthrombosis).
The Danger: Early treatment is best, preferably as early as possible, and no later than 7 days after symptoms. However, many doctors and other practitioners are not providing early treatment and may instead ask you to go home and wait. Refuse to do so. Delay can be deadly. If the virus continues to replicate and your immune system cannot kill the virus on its own, you may end up in the hospital with difficulty breathing, the cytokine storm in full swing, and clot formation. Death may occur if the process is not reversed.
Safe, inexpensive, repurposed anti-viral, anti-inflammation, anti-clotting treatments may not be as effective if used late in the disease, yet some hospitals refuse to even try them (e.g., ivermectin, fluvoxamine). As a result, oxygen supplementation may become necessary, but mechanical ventilation should be avoided.
