Addressing active viruses naturally
The vast majority of people exposed to COVID-19 have few if any symptoms expressed. If you implement the common sense suggestion in this newsletter and my previous newsletter you will likely not have any serious consequence from exposure to COVID-19. If for some reason you become symptomatic from exposure to a virus there are several simple action steps to drastically reduce your symptoms and optimize your rate of recovery.
When viruses take hold of a person’s cellular function it is very common for one’s urine pH to rise. The normal first morning urine pH should be around 6.2 which is slightly acidic. Your body is effectively excreting waste and it reflects in this acidic pH.
If you are actively fighting a virus our urine pH will rise to anywhere from 7.0 to 7.2 or higher. The famous natural healer, Emmanuel Revici, M.D. treated all his patients who had active viruses with mono-ammonium phosphate which pushes the urine pH down.
This drastically reduced the patients symptoms while the patient’s immune system did the work of cleaning out the virus. The same can be done with loading Ascorbic Acid at 1 to 3 grams every half hour until the pH comes back down to 6.2.
It is important to note that unless your urine pH has risen to 7.0 or above I do NOT recommend Ascorbic Acid as a form of Vitamin C since it can throw your body chemistry out of balance. As a preventative use whole food forms of Vitamin C such as listed above.
The next step to take if your body is actively fighting a virus is to consume more fatty acids and less sterols. Fatty acids are fats that are liquid at room temperature such as: olive oil, flaxseed oil. fish oil. Foods that are higher in fatty acids are wild caught fish and other seafood like oysters and crabs.
At the same time reduce the foods high in sterols such as butter, red meat and eggs. The reason is that when viruses penetrate the cells of a person whose cell membranes are high in sterols the immune system is less likely to be able to enter the cell to destroy the virus since sterols are less permeable than fatty acids.
