How to boost your immune system: Simple Ideas

Before we continue, I want to make it clear; we are not advocating or stating that you should take any of these supplements listed below. We are providing data for you to analyse as we always do; our stance will forever remain the same. We don’t tell people what to do, we provide data, and then you decide how you are going to use that data. If you disagree with some or all of the information listed below, that is your right, and we are not going to argue with you. Listen to calming music

If you have to practice social distancing, you can always pick up the phone or use skype or WhatsApp to talk to a loved one or friend. Don’t sit alone and panic; talking about an issue helps relieve stress.

Supplements that are helpful and that we are ourselves are taking

Vit A, Vit D, and Zinc: All three are good for boosting the immune system. A bit of Vit C can also be helpful.

Olive leaf extract: Natural antiviral agent

B complex: has many benefits, one of which is to help one cope with stress.

How to boost your immune system: Out of the box strategies

I am only discussing the stuff below because I was asked by several subscribers what I am doing in terms of the coronavirus. For those that are willing to experiment the information listed below might prove to be of interest. I am not advocating that you do this, but I have used these substances for years and continue to use them. I am willing to push the envelope provided there is data to back up a novel therapy. Hydrogen peroxide 3%:

I use it as a disinfectant as its more effective than alcohol. Also, when the first signs of the flu start to manifest, I put undiluted 3% solution in both ears for 5-15 minutes. I wait until the bubbling stops before moving to the other ear. I also gargle with it and have always experienced substantial relief from a sore throat. I usually dilute 3% with some water and then gargle with it for 5 to 15 minutes. I have either stopped flu dead in its tracks or improved the recovery time by 50%.

The concentration of H2O2 required to kill half the bacteria within 15 s was 1.8 M (6%) but fell to 0.3 M (1%) at 2 min, to 10 mM (0.03%) at 1 h, and to 0.2 mM (0.0007%) with a 24-h exposure. The results indicate that if high levels of H2O2 can be sustained for long periods of time, H2O2 is an effective bactericidal agent, and the presence of LP and SCN- protects streptococci against killing by H2O2. Nevertheless, the combination of LP, H2O2, and SCN- is much more effective than H2O2 alone as an inhibitor of bacterial metabolism and growth.

Scientists at Oregon Health & Science University working with colleagues at the spin-out firm Najit Technologies published in vivo data demonstrating the utility of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-based approach to generating inactivated viral vaccines. Studies in mice demonstrated that H2O2-inactivated viral vaccines against lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV), smallpox, and even West Nile virus triggered high titres of virus-specific CD8+ T cells or neutralising antibodies and provided long-term protection against subsequent challenge with lethal doses of the respective pathogen.

The researchers first confirmed that the oxidising agent H2O2 effectively inactivates both DNA and RNA viruses. They then demonstrated that the peroxide inactivation didn’t impact greatly on immunogenicity. When yellow fever virus (YFV) inactivated using either formaldehyde, BPL, or H2O2 was probed with immune serum from infected mice, the H2O2-inactivated virus retained 87–98% of the maximum antibody binding response observed with live virus. In contrast, YFV inactivated using formaldehyde or BPL demonstrated markedly reduced immunogenicity.

`The effect of H2O2 on adenovirus types 3 and 6, adeno-associated virus type 4, rhinoviruses 1A, 1B, and type 7, myxoviruses, influenza A and B, respiratory syncytial virus, strain Long, and coronavirus strain 229E was studied in vitro, using different H2O2 concentration and times of exposure. H2O2 in a 3 percent concentration inactivated all the viruses under study within 1–30 min. Coronavirus and influenza viruses were found to be most sensitive. Reoviruses, adenoviruses and adeno-associated virus were relatively stable. H2O2 is a convenient means for virus inactivation. Honey

In general, I consume abnormally large amounts of sugar via honey, fruits and chocolates that contain three or fewer ingredients. No soy lecithin or anything that resembles it. It should have sugar, cocoa, cocoa derivatives for the most are okay, milk, and nuts or fruits). However, I eat no bread or any wheat-based products. I stopped all wheat consumption in 2013, and since then, I more than doubled my average natural sugar intake. During this period, I visited the Dentist only twice; on both occasions because they kept pestering me to come in for a check-up. Another benefit of not consuming any wheat is that I naturally lost all excess weight and I now weigh the same as I did at 19.

The exciting thing is that the antibacterial effect of honey is in part is attributed to due to its ability to produce hydrogen peroxide.
The healing property of honey is due to the fact that it offers antibacterial activity, maintains a moist wound condition, and its high viscosity helps to provide a protective barrier to prevent infection. Its immunomodulatory property is relevant to wound repair too. The antimicrobial activity in most honeys is due to the enzymatic production of hydrogen peroxide. However, another kind of honey, called non-peroxide honey (viz., manuka honey), displays significant antibacterial effects even when the hydrogen peroxide activity is blocked. Its mechanism may be related to the low pH level of honey and its high sugar content (high osmolarity) that is enough to hinder the growth of microbes. The medical-grade honeys have potent in vitro bactericidal activity against antibiotic-resistant bacteria causing several life-threatening infections to humans.
