Hi everyone and good day! Yes, almost everyone (those paying attention) is concerned with the Covid-19 pandemic now consuming the air waves of every news channel! And rightly so! How is this all going to pan out? For most it is a bit uncertain in the short term. For the long, well, it’s going to work out! How do I know this? It always has and always does! This is not the first pandemic of epic proportions and risk to all nor will it be the last.
When we look at the functional, indigenous traditional medicine histories of the past we know that Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Native American Medicine as well as Homeopathy and Nature Cure (i.e. Traditional Naturopathy), especially as found in the Christian Monastic Medicine traditions of the Hospitaller’s (Founder of the Modern “Hospital” concept and “Nursing” weathered in some cases MANY pandemics.
The knowledge and understanding of the basic principles of surviving epidemics has not changed, not been lost just because the “times” have changed. Yes, we do have modern medicine and “medical respirators”, although we have a shortage of individuals who know how to operate these high tech life saving devices.
Disclaimer: This is a theoretical article and opinion about how far can Ayurveda (Ayurveda of Thailand and Thai Yoga i.e. Traditional Thai Massage) be useful in preventing, reducing and/ or treating the symptoms, pre and or co-morbities of “SARS-2 Covid-19”. We are not claiming to prevent or to cure it. Do not follow any advice given in the article (or any part of our website) without consulting your doctor. We have not cured any patients of Corona virus with the treatments discussed below, neither do we claim that these treatment ideas cure it or prevent. Consider it as a mere conceptual article and our learned opinion. However, we have reports of many people no longer suffering, sick or dying who are following these protocols!
SomaVeda® Thai Yoga and Ayurveda Solutions for Corona Issues
Please note the following recommendations are in addition to the really good overall advise and NAIC Monastic Medical Recommendation’s guidelines as well as legal edicts as per governmental authorities. All health and medical recommendation’s on an individual level must follow your personal physicians recommendations.
So… best bet for most people is to:
A) Reduce your exposure! From a scientifically validated point of view, the single most valuable methodology to prevent the contact and spread of contagious disease is to simply keep your hands clean! Wash your hands regularly with ordinary soap and warm water for 20 to 30 seconds. Experts and scientist agree that mask of any kind in the general population do not have any benefit is reducing the spread of a pathogenic virus. A typical mask has open pores between 5 and 10 microns at best. Cloth mask or face coverings might have opening over 100 microns. A typical virus particle is as small as 2 microns. Using a mask to prevent exposure to a virus is like trying to stop moskitoes with a chain link fence!
Close social interaction is required for health and well being as well as resistance to illness and disease. All illnesses and diseases. . Our entire lives are built on and based on socialization and social interaction… It is simply not possible for the greater population to sequester and isolate. Income level, access to deliveries… especially a condition for rural and or remote areas! No “Grub Hub” or “Uber Eats” in these areas. Maybe your a “Prepper” maybe not. But all of us need to be somewhat on the “prepper” train right now and for some unforeseeable future. No matter what your up to reduce your social activities to those activities which support health and self sufficiency as best you can. Many “essential” infrastructure persons from health providers to first responder’s will have the same issues as most of us while being required to get out there in high risk environments… no choice. My advise to these persons is do what you can aside from your job responsibilities to take care of your self and your family! You now have multiple jobs in that you have a public responsibility and still need to take care of your own households.
Avoid isolation: Now that we know that social distancing has little or no measurable effect on the spread of the “Cervesa Bug”. We have to consider that our health can suffer if we isolate ourselves completely. Social isolation, Social Distancing disrupts the functioning of the vagus nerve—the brain-gut connection that regulates our immune system and our response to stress. Try to maintain a sense of social connectedness by engaging in small and safe social gatherings, eating meals with your family or a few friends, and avoiding over-reliance on electronic socialization. Above all, stay calm and open hearted while observing these commonsense precautions which might be prudent for any “Flu or Flu type -Bug”:
Avoid close contact with elderly people who are sick (High Risk for Pre and or co-morbidities). (i.e. 83yr+, Medically Obese, Severe Diabetes, Severe Heart Disease, Cancer in Hospice or Nursing Home!)
Wash your hands frequently.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue; then throw the tissue in the trash.
Keep bundled up and warm during cold weather.
B) Be healthy… If your not? Ask yourself “Why am I not healthy?” if the answer is anything that has been in your power and means to correct… get on it! Every health expert including myself will tell you that your baseline of health and wellness will be a contributing factor in both your personal susceptibility and if and when exposed (and you will be), you experience as virulence, degree of illness and risk of death. We here at the SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine and Thai Yoga Center have been teaching all of these concepts for years! Those of you who are graduates from our programs and especially my classes have heard me tirelessly and repetitively tell to to get your personal health in order.
Do the medicine you have been taught. Use the resources you have been given to get healthy i.e. “Physician, Heal Thy Self” as both a pre-condition and as a formal condition towards healing others. Those of you who have followed the teachings are now in excellent shape to deal with the current crises… those of you who followed lackadaisically or didn’t think it was important enough to double down and master the ancient and modern medicine teaching given are now in the same boat as everyone else, those who did not have education, those who don’t have a clue!
C) Practice Yoga with others! For thousands of years Yoga practice has been the core, the foundation of individual and personal health. That has not changed! Certainly there are many Yoga Teachers and Yoga schools right now that would be happy to see you supporting your health by showing up to live classes. There is no substitute for live classes with a live teacher. Everyone needs those “hands on” corrections and no way to get them on ZOOM! Also, consider MA or Martial Arts. All MA have healing benefits. Of course I am prejudiced and prefer Thai (Krabi-Krabong, Muay Thai, Muay Boran), Filipino (Kali, Arnis, Pekiti Tersia) as well as Chinese styles such as Wing Chun Gung Fu, Tai Chi and or Jeet Kune Do (Lee Jun Fan- Bruce Lee Fighting Method)… however any MA with a vigorous practice that gets the heart going, is engaging and or strengthening or toning is perfect. Find a brave teacher near you and bravely go check them out.
You may not like this! I want to say that those graduates and or former students who exclusively have chosen to re-define our SomaVeda Indigenous Traditional Medicine® Thai Yoga as exclusively “Bodywork” and or “Massage” are just now wishing you had paid more attention to the parts of the program dealing with immune system, nutrition, supplementation, detoxification and counseling… You know who you are! However, all is forgiven. Break out your notebooks, text and course materials and dig deep into your notes for solutions you can do right now and which you can use as a basis for counseling! Now is the time to build and redirect into the counseling services your qualified and authorized to do which do not require physical contact and or even being in the same room! You can counsel by phone appointment, “Skype”, FB Live, “Insta” Live, Twitter or whatever format works best for your communications with your clients.
For example, it is proven clinically and scientifically that improving your emotional/ mental health has an immediate and direct impact of your immune system function and overall health and well being. We have an amazing technology called B.E.T./ EFT and or “Energy Psychology” which EVERY SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Certified Practitioner at EVERY practice level is required to learn and know! Now is the time to put that training and secondary certification/ scope of practice to use. Who does not need professional counseling on their negative and old unresolved negative emotional issues, fears, phobia, anxiety issues right now? Those therapist who are paying attention are scheduling paid professional consultation by phone and on-line. If your not… ask your self “Why not?”
A big part of what it means to be able to help bring healing to others is to “Work on Your Self”. Use the “Tapping” to build your own stability and remove confusion and irrational fear to better enable your own clarity to make better decisions during difficult times. Yes physical distance can be helpful… however, do not isolate yourself from your own healing practices and certainly do not be one of those “Healers” who in a crises disappears or is other wise “Not Available”. If your a trained healer, minister or Practitioner Therapist now is the time to prove your metal. Put up or shut up. Help or admit defeat to your lack of discipline and either immediately start supporting those who can do the work or get out of the way. If these words seem strong or critical, then so be it. This current time and pandemic is EXACTLY what we have been training for. This is why true healers, practicing authentic, genuine medicine have been training for. I hope with all my heart that you, my current and former students choose to step up and not out!
I want to recommend for the “Self Work” part of the equation right now my book “Angels Speak, The Art and Work of Crafting Consciousness“. Take some of the “Free Time” you now have because you may not be able to “rub on people” for money and continue to educate yourself on how to work on yourself in such a way as to reconnect to being able to contribute in difficult times.
IMPORTANT ALERT: If you are, and or define your professional livelihood as a “Massage” person (legal definition as someone who rubs on the public for money… Not my definition this is how Massage profession is defined by state laws!) my heart goes out to you as the massage industry is experiencing a huge crash which is likely to continue for the future. Non-medical, non-essential touching for esthetics, relaxation and or “therapy” may even be banned by the government in the near future.
I have a solution for you… Learn SomaVeda® Thai Yoga, Ayurveda and Indigenous Traditional Natural Medicine. Yes we are the masters of Thai Traditional Physical Therapy (Thai Yoga Massage) however, in our traditional based system we teach “ALL” of the Ayurveda, Yoga Therapy and Indigenous Protocols which do NOT Require touching at all! If all you know or can do is rub of people then now is the time to re-direct!
Have confidence! SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Day Protocol works! It directly and immediately builds and improves all immune system quanta and measurable factors including those for fighting infections and in resisting all contagious issues. Not only is this a scientific fact, supported by an ever increasing body of science and scientific investigation, research trials, but, we have a mutli-decade of anecdotal history and evidence supporting the many benefits of the work we have been given.
Only “Isolate” if you are sick or suspect your sick!
Health officials recommend relying on good judgment and “social distancing” to keep ourselves safe. Yet, even as we are forced, sometimes without our consent, limit our social interactions, it’s important to remember that we are all in this together. Socially together is required for all societies to function! This realization is essential to our well-being. Throughout the long history of humankind (and of the animal kingdom, too) those who learned to collaborate and intelligently adapt have prevailed.
Ayurveda provides us with a host of ways to ramp up our immune system. Here are a few tips that may not be the first you would think of! Take a look, and please reach out to me if you have any questions.
Support your Agni: Digestive Fire! Our digestive system is the root of good health. Help keep it in good working order with plenty of whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables. Eat three nourishing meals a day. Breakfast should be warm and easy to digest, lunch should be your largest meal of the day, and dinner should consist of a light, warm, and easily assimilated dish, such as a soup, or lightly steamed veggies and rice. Stay away from processed foods, sugars, and heavy, oily foods. Dairy foods can also be problematic due to their mucus-forming properties.
Consume a small amount of Trikatu daily before lunch:Trikatu is a Sanskrit word meaning “three spices” or “three peppers.” Trikatu is an Ayurvedic blend of equal parts of the fruits of black pepper (Piper nigrum), long pepper (Piper longum), and the rhizomes of ginger (Zingiber officinale). Its many benefits include the following:
Helps to clear excess kapha or mucus from the body
Supports healthy digestive, circulatory, and respiratory functioning
Helps rekindle agni (digestive fire)
Scrapes away excess fat tissue (helpful for weight management)
Helps remove impurities and toxins (ama) from the body
Enjoy Tulsi Tea throughout your day: Tulsi, or holy basil, is a delicious form of basil that not only is a respiratory tonic, but also has antiviral qualities. It is also acts as a powerful nervine tonic that can help soothe anxiety, relieve stress, and rejuvenate the nervous system. Buy herbs here.
Get Good Sleep: Sleep is of equal importance to two other key aspects of health: proper nutrition and regular exercise. This vital trio—nutrition, exercise, and sleep—form the three pillars of health. Sleep deprivation suppresses production of the infection-fighting cytokines, antibodies, and cells that are your body’s first line of defense against the virus.
No Vaccine, and with a scarcity of Masks & Hand sanitizers, Our Own Body’s Immunity is our best defense. Ayurveda has for centuries addressed the issue of how to develop and maintain immunity. Here is a few Immunity To-Dos for your family.
with lime in warm water daily in the morning to keep the whole digestive tract healthy. Actually all Wild , Unprocessed Honey is Ayurvedic! Look for the wildest, unprocessed, local honey that you can find. Use liberally in a variety of forms from topically to orally as a natural medication. Of course you can also forget that it is a traditional medicine and just use in your tea, coffee or as a snack!
Drink warm freshly boiled water with Cinnamon, Clove, Cardamom, Ginger, Black Pepper, and or Star Anise. These spices improve digestion and are antimicrobial.
Add fresh Turmeric to your soups or prepare fresh Turmeric Pickle with each meal. Turmeric apart from its anti-inflammation properties is also very good at improving our digestion.
Chyavanaprasam (is a good source of C vitamin) – useful for deficient immune disorders, respiratory ailments (also useful in debilitating diseases where the immunity goes down drastically).
Those who cannot take ghee/sugar of Chyavanaprasam may take Tiktakam Kwatham morning and evening. It is an ancient Ayurvedic herbal supplement tablet that is robustly anti-viral.
Agastya Rasayana(Leham) – useful for general debility, respiratory ailments including bronchial asthma, hiccup, cough
Dasamula Arishtam (Dasamoolaristam) after lunch and dinner- is a very powerful and potent health tonic to boost immunity as well as strengthen the lungs and the respiratory system
Guduci Rasayana: Known as Amurtha or nectar, it is a rejuvenating tonic for young and old which promotes learning, vigor, and vitality as well. Helps maintain normal liver function and supports a healthy immune system. Promotes healthy digestion.
Glycyrrhiza glabra – (Ayurvedic Herb for Lungs, Skin, Stomach) Known as LICORICE ROOT is a natural expectorant and demulcent that promotes clear, comfortable breathing. Licorice root powder supports a healthy male reproductive system and has benefits for the adrenals and kidneys. ALSO KNOWN AS MULETHI ROOT, licorice is naturally moisturizing. It lubricates the gut, soothes the mucous membranes, balances excess acidity in the stomach lining, and supports comfortable digestion.*
But the best way to develop Immunity is to cook fresh vegetables especially sourced from a local organic farm. Many local CSA’s are instituting either delivery and or “Drive Through”, call them, maybe they can sort out your weekly CSA Fresh Produce Box! *** With Coronavirus – Why risk going to the Grocery Store – when you can have fresh vegetables delivered from Farm

Are you worried about the so-called “killer Chinese coronavirus” that the news media suddenly has everyone all hyped up about? And are you wondering whether or not colloidal silver will help stop it?
Let’s take a look, first, at the supposed Chinese coronavirus “pandemic,” to see if we really have anything to worry about. Then we’ll take a look at the growing body of evidence for using colloidal silver should such a “pandemic” ever actually develop.
If you’ll stick with me to the end, I’ll even give you my thoughts on how I’d personally use colloidal silver should the new “killer Chinese coronavirus” begin spreading throughout the U.S.
A Quick Trip Down Memory Lane
Remember back in the 2005 when the famous “Bird Flu” from Asia was going to race across the globe and kill millions of innocent people?
The news media claimed that a bird virus somehow “jumped species” and began infecting humans. And they dubbed it to be a “looming pandemic,” meaning it would eventually wreak havoc on people worldwide, killing millions upon millions.
Here’s the part you might not know about: The big drug companies then used the “Bird Flu” scare to convince western governments throughout Europe, America and Canada into stockpiling billions of dollars worth of the worthless antiviral drug, Tamiflu.
Indeed, taxpayer money was used to buy up just about every available bottle of the antiviral drug, worldwide, as a means of helping “prevent a coming pandemic.”
In the U.S., alone, a staggering $1.3 billion in taxpayer money was used to buy up a “strategic reserve” of Tamiflu. And throughout the world, governments spent nearly $9 billion of taxpayer money on this same drug.
Then, just as suddenly as it appeared, the “Bird Flu” disappeared.
And governments got stuck holding the bag, with warehouses full of a virtually worthless “antiviral drug” that studies had later determined only cut one-half day off the course of a typical viral infection. And even then, the drug had to be taken before the infection started in order to be effective.
And that’s how the big multi-national drug companies make sure they never lose a penny on drugs they’ve developed, even when those drugs are rife with side effects and virtually useless for their intended purpose.
The powers-that-be simply scare the living bejabbers out of the public, first. Then they sell them something to “protect them.” A Mafia protection racket works no differently.
Indeed, as Dr. Peter Gotzsche of the famous Cochrane Collaboration states in his book, Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Health Care: “Organized crime is the business model of big pharma.”
3 More Quick Examples
Here’s another quick example: What about the Swine Flu “epidemic” of 2009? That one, the news media told us, was caused by a bird virus that mysteriously combined with a pig virus, and then mutated to infect humans.
At the time, the news media assured us that “tens of thousands of people” were already being infected throughout the U.S., and that “millions would die.” Everyone was urged to run out and get their flu shots as quickly as possible. Flu shots sold out in days. So did face masks.
But as TV investigative reporter Sheryl Attkinson later reported, it turned out that health authorities hadn’t even been checking sick people for the “swine flu” virus in the U.S.
Indeed, the CDC, FDA and other health authorities were simply attributing everysingle upper respiratory illness in the U.S. that year to the “Swine Flu,” so they could claim that it “killed 22,000 Americans” when, in reality, they couldn’t point to even a single death from the actual “Swine Flu” virus. Not one.
In reality, most all of the deaths that year were from the normal flu, which the CDC admits kills some 36,000 Americans per year, virtually every year. But millions of Americans were stampeded to get their flu shots, and the big vaccine manufacturers reaped hundreds of millions more dollars in profits.
Another example: Perhaps you’ll remember just six short years ago, in 2014, when the powers-that-be and their news media lackeys drummed up the Ebola panic, telling us it was “inevitable” that the dreaded Ebola virus would flood into the U.S. from the Congo “any day now” and “infect millions.”
Yet it never happened, even though we were repeatedly assured by the news media – for weeks on end – that Ebola-infected individuals were “on their way to the U.S.” and that the resulting death toll from the coming epidemic would be “unstoppable.”
What happened? Nothing.
The entire nation was panicked so drug-makers could get the governments of the world to fund development of a new Ebola vaccine with taxpayer money – a vaccine which, I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out, was actually developed, and didn’t do a thing to stop the new 2019 Ebola outbreak in the Congo, in spite of some 130,000 doses being administered to the “most at risk” population in the Congo.
And who can forget about the most recent foreign virus scare, from 2017, i.e., the dreaded Zika virus scare?
We were told the virus was invading the U.S. from Brazil…that mosquitoes were carrying it throughout the southern U.S…and that it would cause genetic mutations in the babies of all pregnant mothers that got infected.
But what actually happened?
Err…nothing. It all quietly went away in a matter of weeks. The only thing keeping the scare going was the news media propaganda, replete with photos of pregnant women and dead or deformed babies. When the propaganda finally stopped, amazingly, the disease disappeared, along with all of the fear that had been drummed up.
Bats and Snakes and Mice, Oh, My!
Now, this year, 2020, we’re being treated to the so-called “killer Chinese coronavirus” scare.
The news media tells us this particular coronavirus is somehow passed to humans who have eaten bats, snakes and mice. Oh, my!
Then, the humans supposedly pass the virus they got from eating bats, snakes and mice along to other humans. Through coughing. Just like the flu.
Hmm. Has anybody checked to see if it actually is the flu? It’s flu season, after all. Right?
Even if this killer Chinese coronavirus is real, there’s one big problem with the scenario they’re painting for us here in the west: In Asia, people have been eating bats, snakes and mice for centuries. It’s nothing new. And it’s never caused a global viral pandemic in the past. So once again, I find myself saying, “Hmm.”
Today’s news media is extremely sophisticated, in terms of propaganda. They’re actually tagging this supposedly “looming new threat” with every emotional element they know causes a deep and abiding sense of fear in people. Think about it. The mystery virus, we’re told by the media, is:
From the darkest reaches of China, with the implication being that it’s “foreign”…it’s out to get us…and therefore it’s a far more serious threat than anything domestic.
It originates from bats, snakes and mice – yes, three creatures everyone in the west cringes at the very sight of. If you want to make a westerner squeamish with fear, just yell, “Look, snake!” or “Look, mice!” or “Look, bats!”
It’s “mutating rapidly out-of-control – in other words, it’s like a Frankenstein monster turned loose on the streets; you’d better lock yourself and the children inside, because the killer Chinese coronavirus is coming for you!
It’s killing people, for goodness sakes! (But you have to read the fine print to find out that so far, as of this writing, only 17 people have died from this virus in China, out of a population of 1.3 billion .)
These are just some of the emotional “triggers” the news media are using to make the “killer Chinese coronavirus” appear to be a looming global threat.
Repeat these emotional triggers often enough, day after day after day, on national TV, and couple them with dramatic photos of people in China wearing face masks for protection, and voila’, you get a panicked population here in the U.S..
Yes, even if not one word of the hype is true.
Why Do They Want to Promote Panic Now?
But why would the news media want to promote such a crazy state of global panic?
Well, who could possibly benefit the most from drumming up fear of a foreign killer virus?
Do I really need to tell you? Yes? Okay then. The answer is this:
And sure enough, a drug manufacturing company called Novavax announced this past week that their stock had soared some 68% virtually overnight due to the fact they’ve been working on a vaccine for the “deadly coronavirus from China.”
So there’s a brand new vaccine in the making for this so-called killer Chinese coronavirus. No big surprise, right?
Any salesman or marketer will tell you that the #1 tool for promoting sales is…drum roll, please…fear. If you make people believe their lives are in imminent danger, they’ll pretty much buy whatever you’re selling. And they’ll do so immediately.
And that’s what’s coming down the pike, folks: A long and sensationalistic news media campaign to scare people like you and me into submitting to an annual coronavirus vaccine, along with the usual annual flu shots. It’s coming. They’ll probably even start giving it to babies. You can bank on it. Novavax certainly is.
A Genetically Engineered Vaccine?
There’s one crucial piece of information you need to know about this new vaccine being developed for the Chinese coronavirus: According to Novavax, the vaccine uses a “recombinant nanoparticle.”
Yes, that means it’s a genetically engineered vaccine. Indeed, Novavax openly admits on their website for this vaccine that they developed it from the genetically engineered cells of…bugs. Yes, bugs. In this case, a crop-damaging worm called an Armyworm that, in nature, eventually turns into a moth.
But genetically modified worm cells won’t be the only thing you’ll get in your upcoming coronavirus vaccine. Nosiree. You’ll get genetically modified worm cells that have been infected with another virus! And it’s an insect virus. As Novavax states on their website:
“We produce our vaccine nanoparticles in cells originally isolated in the 1970s from the ovaries of the fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda).
The Sf9 insect cell line can grow in apparent perpetuity when infected with a baculovirus (BV), a virus that infects only insects.
Because a baculovirus can be engineered to carry one or more foreign genes of interest, it can be used to “program” (infect) the Sf9 cells to efficiently produce the desired protein or proteins that are correctly folded and biologically active.
Novavax uses the Sf9 system to construct recombinant protein nanoparticles that have the potential to provide increase protection.”
So they want to inject you and your children or grandchildren with the genetically modified cells of dead worms that have been infected with a supposedly “benign” insect virus, in order to protect you from a virus that originated from Chinese people eating snakes, bats and mice!
What could possibly go wrong?
As one of my favorite journalists, Jon Rappoport, has stated on his popular blog site, NoMoreFakeNews.com:
“…that means the vaccine will permanently alter the genetic makeup of anyone who takes the shot.”
Oh, joy. That’s one more vaccine I simply won’t be taking. How about you?
Can you imagine what it would take to convince people in the western world to take this new vaccine made of genetically modified worm genes combined with an insect virus? Well, if you thought “loads of fear” you’re right. That’s exactly what it would take. And that’s exactly what they’re giving us.
“You automatically believe this Chinese coronavirus is a killer?
You automatically believe the press when they ratchet up the fear?
You automatically believe medical experts have found a virus and proved it’s causing human illness?
You’re now on the Gong Show on roller skates.
As you can probably tell, Jon Rappoport – who’s been writing about viruses and vaccines since 1987, including a best-selling book on the subject – isn’t too keen on the scare tactics being used by the news media to promote fear over non-existent “viral pandemics.”
He’s not even sure if this new Chinese coronavirus actually exists, or causes any disease at all in humans. Or is it all just media-driven hype to help promote the coming vaccine?
Don’t Let Them Get You Too Worked Up Over It
We’ve seen all of this far too many times in the past. There’s nothing new under the sun, and that includes deception from our government and corporate overlords, so they can make more money off of us and gain more control over us.
So don’t let the news media get you too worked up over this so-called killer Chinese coronavirus issue.
The powers-that-be always try to make these things sound like a “global pandemic,” when, in reality, to date, only about five hundred people have been infected in China.
And as of this writing, only 17 of those people have died, compared to 36,000 people
who die from the common flu each and every year right here in the U.S.
Look, even a single death is one death too many. But 17 deaths out of 1.3 billion people is hardly the stuff “epidemics” are made of.
Clearly, you’re far better off preparing to fend off the good ole USA flu (which kills 36,000 Americans per year) than worrying about some obscure virus from China that mostly infects people who eat bats, snakes and mice.
The news media is really trying to hype this “killer Chinese coronavirus” out of all proportion to reality. They’re going overboard with it.
But like all of the other strange viral epidemics and pandemics we’ve been promised over the last ten years, this one, too, will most likely drift away with a whimper rather than go out with a bang.
Is Colloidal Silver Effective Against The Chinese Killer Coronavirus?
Since the killer Chinese coronavirus is said to be relatively new, having only recently mutated from snakes, bats and mice to the point it could infect humans, there’s quite literally zero scientific info as to whether colloidal silver (or anything else, for that matter) would work against it.
But…colloidal silver has been known to work against a number of other coronaviruses. So let’s take a look at what the existing literature says:
According to Herbert Slavin, M.D., founder and director of the Institute of Advanced Medicine, Lauderhill, Florida:
“…A study at the University of Arizona recently showed ionic silver to be effective against the coronavirus that researchers use as the surrogate for SARS.”
SARS stands for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. The coronavirus behind SARS produces the same kind of respiratory syndrome as caused by the new Chinese coronavirus. According to a Business Wirearticle about the study:
“The study tested various ionic silver and copper levels to determine if they were effective against the human coronavirus strain 229E, a strain commonly used as a surrogate for the SARS virus in laboratory research.
The research demonstrated significant reductions of the virus within 1 hour (90 percent) and reduced virus levels to below the detection limit following 24 hours of exposure (99.99 percent).”
Wow. In this study, the researchers saw a 90% reduction in coronavirus levels within the first hour, and a 99.99% reduction within 24 hours.
“This research demonstrates that ionic silver has the potential to deactivate viruses in a relatively short period of time,” said Jeff Trogolo, Ph.D., chief technology officer, AgION Technologies, Inc.
That’s actually quite amazing. So now we know for sure that the ionic form of colloidal silver – aka electrically generated colloidal silver – works against at least one extremely serious form of coronavirus.
That’s heartening, right? But it’s certainly not all we have to go on. Let’s keep digging:
At the above link you’ll find a retrospective study of silver-based therapeutics and their effects on viruses, published in the Journal of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine (June 2003).
The authors concluded that even with the SARS coronavirus, “swift reduction of viral loads” could be achieved using “oligodynamic Ag1” (i.e., electrically generated colloidal silver). Here’s what they stated:
“State-of-the-art, electrolytically produced ‘oligodynamic’ Ag1…offers distinct advantages and versatility of use over older and cruder formulations.
Possessing much smaller, subnanometer-sized particles, greater electrical potential and lower concentrations, it is more bio-available than other formulations.
Efficacy against the SARS-related coronavirus, for example, may be enhanced when nebulized Ag1 is inhaled. This should achieve swift reduction of viral loads, especially in the early stages.”
As you can see, the study authors recommend using the ionic form of colloidal silver, with a nebulizer, so it can be atomized into a mist and easily inhaled into the lungs. After all, the coronavirus is a respiratory virus.
So if you’d like to learn more about using colloidal silver in a nebulizer in order to get silver particles into your respiratory system during times of cold or flu (or coronavirus threat), see the following article and short video:
The study authors conclude by stating that electrically-generated colloidal silver appears to be effective against coronavirus even in its mutated forms. They wrote:
“The only known mechanism of resistance also appears to play no role notwithstanding the mutability of the coronavirus. Therefore no functional barrier to the virotoxic effects of oligodynamic Ag1 may be expected regardless of the rapidity or variety of mutations.”
So it’s unlikely the coronavirus can mutate to the point that silver is not effective against it. But that’s still not all I’ve found. Let’s keep digging:
The European Patent
Did you know there’s actually an international patent, from a Japanese chemical manufacturing company, for using silver ions to inactivate the coronavirus on walls, floors, countertops, clothing and other “touch surfaces”?
According to the patent, silver ions can be used to completely inactivate the coronavirus on surfaces. They write:
“The present invention relates to an anti-coronaviral agent that is effective in treating coronaviruses and can be mixed with plastics, paints and the like. It also relates to an anti-coronaviral product made from fibers, resins and others that contain the anti-coronaviral agent.”
The researchers go on to say:
“…the problem can be solved by using a silver ion as an active ingredient and having the silver ion stably held by a carrier…which is useful for inactivating a coronavirus, and also relates to a method for inactivating a coronavirus using the silver ion carrier according to the present invention.”
Pretty exciting stuff, right?
Silver ions – the form of silver you can make for just pennies with any good colloidal silver generator – inactivates coronavirus on surfaces such as doorknobs and countertops. So it would likely do so inside the human body, as well, don’t you think?
At the very least, if the new killer Chinese coronavirus becomes a true threat here in the U.S., you can spray colloidal silver on your home’s touch surfaces each day (i.e., doorknobs, countertops, cutting boards, toilet seats, kitchen and bathroom sinks, etc.) in order to help stop the virus from being picked up and spread by others.
You could even run some colloidal silver in a cool mist vaporizer so silver ions would be spread as a mist throughout your home!
There’s a lot of peace of mind in that, don’t you think?
The Chinese Study
There’s also a very interesting clinical study out of China, published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, in which researchers mixed silver nanoparticles with graphene (i.e., carbon atoms, known as fullerenes) and tested them against a coronavirus known to infect cats.
The researchers found that while graphene alone did not inhibit growth of the coronavirus very much, the graphene mixed with silver nanoparticles did.
This study, having been conducted on the feline coronavirus, reminds me of the time a reader wrote in about using colloidal silver to heal his cat that was afflicted with Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP), which, according to Cornell University, is actually caused by a coronavirus.
The reader wrote me to say that while their veterinarian had pronounced a death sentence on the sick cat, the colloidal silver saved its life. Here’s what he wrote:
“Using the “standard” colloidal silver concentration produced during a three-hour generation from our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, we have successfully cured two different infections that conventional medicine has not consistently addressed.
In particular, Bruiser, our Japanese Bobtail, was sentenced to certain death by a local vet who declared that the kitty’s illness indicated by lab tests was FIP (feline infectious peritonitis) and was incurable.
Three other vets confirmed the FIP and the death sentence, including an area alternative medicine vet who refused my suggestion to try colloidal silver, and abused the kitty with vitamin shots to no avail.
For the first few months after Bruiser’s veterinarians failed to successfully address the FIP, my wife and I gave him an eyedropper full (approximately 1 teaspoon) several times daily. His appetite improved quickly and he started playing with his sister again, so we reduced the dosage to several times a week.
Bruiser is now another five years older (total six+ years) and is well and healthy. We occasionally fill an eye dropper and give him a drink if he seems to be feeling lethargic.
We feel that colloidal silver performed miraculously, where conventional ‘cat medicine’ and veterinarians failed the test!”
– Dale T., CO
Remember, this cat had an “incurable” coronavirus infection, very similar to what’s infecting people in China right now. And we have a number of similar accounts in the hopper. Here’s one more quick one:
“Hi Steve! I wanted to give you an update on ‘Ditto,’ my kitten with FIP.
He’s been on the Silver since last year. He should be a year old around May, they aren’t sure when he was born. He was pulled from his mom at a young age.
I’m just glad we ended up with him. Having FIP, most people just put them to sleep because it’s 100% fatal.
Well, the Colloidal Silver is keeping him alive. I’m so glad I came across your site. I will keep you posted as time goes on. THANK YOU!
BTW, at first, we just gave Ditto straight colloidal silver in place of her regular water, for a couple of days.
Then, we decreased the dosage to about a 1/2 cup of colloidal silver added to her water for the next couple of weeks.
When she was so sick she wasn’t drinking our eating, we had to give the colloidal silver to her through a medicine dropper. We gave her as much as she would take, and she actually loved it.”
– Shelly PB
Once again, don’t forget: FIP is caused by an “incurable” coronavirus that afflicts cats. Yet colloidal silver seems to be able to cure it quite handily. Which is good news for those of us who might be concerned about this new coronavirus coming out of China.
The Final Solution?
Finally, two highly respected researchers, Dr. Eric Gordon, MD and Dr. Kent Holtorf, MD, writing in the prestigious Townsend Letter for Doctors, believe colloidal silver is the answer to many forms of viral infections, including serious upper respiratory viral infections and viral pandemics such as those caused by coronaviruses.
“During the past 300 years, humanity has suffered 10 pandemics and several epidemic scares. Could the solution to pandemics have a simple answer? Has Nature always held the key to defeating pathogens in a simple Ag+ [i.e., ionic silver] molecule?”
They then point out in their scientific white paper titled “A Promising Cure for Upper Respiratory Tract Infection Pandemics, Including the Avian Flu: Has the Final Solution to the Coming Plagues Been Discovered?” that “the collective authoritative medical literature has documented efficacy of silver’s virotoxicity against over 24 viruses.”
What’s more, the authors state that the 200-plus viral strains known to cause upper respiratory tract infections, including most flu viruses, will also most likely succumb to the powerful antiviral qualities of very small particles of “oligodynamic silver” (i.e., a medical reference to electrically-generated colloidal silver being extremely powerful even in small quantities).
In fact, the authors point out that silver is likely going to be the answer to any future global viral pandemic, stating:
“A broad-spectrum anti-viral agent that really works is needed to combat over 200 viruses that cause Upper Respiratory Tract Infections. Undoubtedly oligodynamic silver fits this bill…Emerging medical studies confirm the stellar, broad-spectrum virotoxic efficacy of oligodynamic silver both in vitro and in vivo.”
What’s more, the authors state that not only has silver been demonstrated to decimate many of the viruses associated with deadly viral infections, but it has also been proven to decimate most of the well-known bacterial pathogens that cause serious secondaryinfections during a viral infection, including the following:
Inflammatory conditions of the eyes, ears, nose, and throat
It’s these secondary bacterial infections that often kill the infected individual, once the flu virus has sufficiently weakened the body.
But colloidal silver’s powerful, broad-spectrum anti-viral qualities covers such a wide range of viral pathogens you can easily see why the report’s authors – both respected medical doctors – refer to silver as “the Final Solution to the Coming Plagues.”
Summing It All Up…
We’ve now got wall-to-wall 24/7 news media coverage of the so-called killer Chinese coronavirus, even though, as of this writing, only about 17 people have died and about 500 have been infected, out of a population of 1.3 billion Chinese.
That works out to one infected person per every 76 million people in China.
In other words, even at its epicenter, in China, the disease is barely causing a ripple. Yet the western news media assures us the world is about to end, and that a Chinese coronavirus that normally infects snakes, mice and bats is going to be the culprit.
We can also conclude with a great deal of confidence that the news media’s fearful drumbeats are most likely designed to ramp up public acceptance – yes, even stimulate public demand – for the coming new coronavirus vaccine, which, according to the vaccine maker, contains genetically modified worm genes infected with an insect virus.
Yummy. Fine dining at its best, right? Hey, they only have our best interests at heart. How could you possibly believe otherwise?
And finally, we’ve learned that while colloidal silver has not yet been tested against the so-called killer Chinese coronavirus, it has indeed been demonstrated in medical studies to be effective against other coronaviruses, such as the SARS coronavirus.
This has led natural health experts to proclaim that silver should be equally effective against newly developing coronaviruses, as well.
We’ve also seen that a Japanese chemical conglomerate operating out of Europe has patented a technique for using silver ions to stop the spread of coronaviruses on touch surfaces, such as doorknobs, toilets, kitchen and bathroom sinks, etc.
And we’ve seen that a medical retrospective of studies on the subject of silver’s effectiveness against viruses has led researchers to believe that colloidal silver would indeed be effective against modern-day plague viruses such as the coronaviruses.
So I’ll be sticking with my colloidal silver, should this viral outbreak in China actually become a worldwide pandemic.
What I’d Do if the Chinese Coronavirus Arrives
If I was concerned about catching this virus – which, at this point in time, I’m definitely not – I’d probably take an ounce of colloidal silver per day as a prophylactic measure, meaning, as a means of helping prevent the virus from taking hold inside my body should I ever be exposed to it.
If I thought I’d already been infected with the Chinese coronavirus, I’d certainly consider taking the following four simple steps:
1.) I’d drink an ounce of colloidal silver up to four times per day.
2.) I’d nebulizer colloidal silver into my lungs up to three or four times per day, for maybe five minutes at a time.
3.) I’d use a pump spray bottle with a fine mist nozzle to spray the various touch surfaces in my home with colloidal silver, i.e., kitchen countertops, sinks, toilets, doorknobs, etc. – anything people in my home commonly touch throughout the course of a day.
4.) I’d get plenty of bed rest, and drink plenty of fluids, as per any other upper respiratory viral infection.
Now, those are just my thoughts. They’re not a “prescription” from me, so please don’t take it as being so. I’m not a doctor. I’m just a journalist with a peculiar interest in natural health.
My main point is this: Don’t let the news media panic you with their fear-mongering tactics. They’ve had a nearly 20-year Reign of Error on predicting epidemics and pandemics. All of their predictions, for the most part, have been abysmal failures.
They say even a broken clock is right twice a day. And that’s true. So sooner or later the medical authorities are going to get one right. Maybe this one. But even then, we’ve got colloidal silver in our corner. So why worry? And why allow ourselves to be driven by fear?
Important Addendum: Where to Find Colloidal Silver
If you’re brand new to colloidal silver usage and are wondering where to buy it, it’s important to know that you can find it in just about any well-stocked health food store in America.
It’s also available on Amazon and numerous other websites.
But it can be extremely expensive. In fact, because colloidal silver works so well against numerous forms of infection and disease, it has the highest price mark-up of any nutritional supplement in existence.
The amount of actual silver in a four-ounce bottle of colloidal silver is about five to 12 cents worth. (Yes, I said five to twelve cents.)
Yet because that small amount of silver is all it takes to decimate so many different kinds of infections, the manufacturers mark it up about 63,000%, charging a whopping $20 or $30 per bottle.
What’s more, manufacturers promoting the latest faddish colloidal silver product often charge far more per bottle – sometimes $35 to $50 for a tiny four-ounce bottle.
And people are more than willing to pay through the nose for these commercial colloidal silver products at health food stores because colloidal silver does indeed heal infections and prevent the spread of germs and disease faster and better than any other natural supplement on the planet!
So, commercially speaking, the retail price of colloidal silver at health food stores reflects its value to the consumer far more so than its true cost to produce. But here’s the good news:
Make Your Own High-Quality Colloidal Silver for Pennies!
As I mentioned, typical health food store prices for colloidal silver can range from $20 to $30 for a tiny, four-ounce bottle.
But with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you can make your own safe, pure, high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver for about36 cents a quart! In other words, you can make it at actual cost, just like the big colloidal silver bottlers do.
