      Viral Defense in Intense Times

      Covid 19 is scary. But it remains a virus. The common cold is a virus. The flu is a virus. They don’t seem quite as scary. So let’s put a little perspective on Covid 19.

      Most people who contract Covid 19 virus will have mild or no symptoms. There are several treatment options currently being used that appear to be quite promising. Medications, the timing of medications, and even patient positioning are proving to be very helpful. Early treatment with antibiotics also seems to decrease symptoms, preventing hospitalization in some cases.

      Prevention is the Best Medicine

      As with any health issue, prevention is the best medicine. The people least likely to catch Covid 19 or any other virus, are the healthiest people. Those with current health issues such as respiratory disorders, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and other chronic illnesses are at higher risk. If you’ve read my articles here before, you will recognize what I call “ fork-related diseases.” Those are the ones that you create yourself with your fork: high cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and overweight or obesity.

      Reduce Your Risk

      You can start to reduce your risk of contracting any virus by eating fresh, healthy food and exercising outside in the sun. (Please maintain 6 feet between you and others.) Recent research on Covid 19 shows that it is killed rather quickly in hot, humid, sunny environments. Besides being good for your body, exercising outside is good for your head. With people being stuck at home so much recently, the incidence of depression, suicide, and domestic violence is increasing. Taking care of what I call your “headspace” is very important as well. Try to keep a positive attitude. Be kind to others even when they are not kind to you. It goes a long way.

      Oral Nutrients for Prevention

      There are many oral nutrients that you can take to help enhance your immune system and hopefully prevent contracting any virus. Some of them you may be familiar with, and some you may not. Each item that I’ve chosen is science-based. Meaning there is a science to show that each of these nutrients helps to support your immune system. Below are some recommendations. Many high-quality nutrients are difficult to get right now. Demand is high. Remember when ordering online that it’s very easy to end up with a counterfeit nutrient. Always buy from a reputable site that you know. Always buy a high-quality brand with a minimum of GMP certification.

      These doses are a suggestion. Doses may have to be higher or lower depending on each individual. Please consult your holistic health care practitioner before starting any supplement protocol.

      Short-Term Nutrient Protocol for Immune System Support

      Use for no more than 3 months without a nutrient evaluation. Not for use in pregnant or lactating women. These statements are for educational purposes only and are not meant to be medical advice or to treat or cure any disease.

      Vitamin C 1000 mg three times a day with a meal. If you don’t take vitamin C regularly, work up to this dose. Taking too much vitamin C at one time will give you loose bowels.

      Zinc 30mg twice a day with food. Take zinc in the middle of a meal. It can upset some stomachs.

      Vitamin A as retinoids 25,000 IU twice daily with food.

      Artimisinin Capsule 200mg daily

      N-Acetyl-l-cysteine 500mg three times daily

      Vitamin D 5,000 IU daily depending on your current status.

      Probiotics 25, 000+ units preferably from Klaire labs.

      Root Causes Holistic Health and Medicine offers superior-grade, medically supervised, intravenous nutrient protocols. We developed a new IV that we call Viral Defense. It contains many of the items listed above, with the addition of other nutrients. The star ingredient is N-acetylcysteine. It helps with lung health. You may elect additional add-ons like vitamin D injection, glutathione, or other nutrients to help your body be optimally healthy. During your initial consultation, we will determine the best protocol for you.

Call us today to develop a risk factor reduction protocol just for you and when Covid 19 is all over, we will expand your protocol into lifelong optimal health and wellness!

      Mistletoe Therapy with Helixor Products

      Mistletoe therapy is one of the most widely used cancer therapies in Europe. Here in the US, it is currently under study through Johns Hopkins. Root Causes is proud to be an approved study site. The Mistletoe clinical trial at Johns Hopkins will be a Phase 1 trial, in which researchers will be testing the drug on a small group of participants to evaluate the safety, determine a safe dose, and identify side effects. This is the first step of many research steps before mistletoe can be considered for conventional use in cancer treatment.

      Root Causes Holistic Health and Medicine has partnered with the wonderful organization, Believe Big, to help you explore Mistletoe as a healing option. Right now, Root Causes only offers subcutaneous injections. But watch our website, because we will soon be certified to administer the intravenous protocol as well.
