More Information on Coronavirus COVID-19 and pH Levels

(Please read our disclaimer)

Dr. Mark Sircus, Ac., OMD, DM (P) is a prolific writer and author of some astounding medical and health-related books and articles. Dr. Sircus’s methods are based on medical science and long years of clinical experience, not only his own but experiences of doctors from around the world who have been practicing brilliant medicine. As a response to the Coronavirus pandemic, he has written several articles including one titled Viruses are pH-Sensitive where he recommends the use of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) as medicine to raise your pH level in order to make your internal environment slightly alkaline. The article points to research that shows viruses cannot survive and replicate in a body pH of above 6.5 or so. You can measure your internal pH using pH strips wet with your urine or saliva.  Optimal pH levels for good health is around 7.25.

Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine

Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine are drugs that have shown promise for treating COVID-19. They have been in the news lately, as I'm sure you are aware. But I'll bet you are not aware of how these drugs work. Here are a few quotes I've found from credible articles online:

Dr. Judith James, vice president of clinical affairs at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation says, “When malaria gets inside a cell, if you change the pH with a drug like chloroquine phosphate, the malaria can’t live. The same goes for a virus like COVID-19. If you change the pH, the virus cannot assemble, and if it can’t assemble, it can’t infect you.”  ~

"Chloroquine has antiviral effects. It increases late endosomal and lysosomal pH, resulting in impaired release of the virus from the endosome or lysosome – release of the virus requires a low pH."  ~ Wikipedia 

“Chloroquine can also alter the pH of the compartment in which some viruses are brought into the cell. This can interfere with the process of depositing the virus' genome inside the cell and thus block the virus' ability to reproduce. Experiments in cultured cells infected by SARS-CoV-2 indicated that chloroquine treatments can keep the virus from spreading within the culture."  ~

"Nabil Seidah, a molecular biologist at the Montreal Clinical Research Institute (IRCM), and colleagues examined chloroquine’s effect on SARS-CoV back in 2005. Chloroquine can raise the pH of endosomes, vesicles inside cells that are hijacked as points of entry by viruses. Endosomes have a slightly acidic pH, which helps facilitate this process. Seidah explains that chloroquine can raise endosomic pH slightly, which prevents fusion and stops the virus from entering the cell."  ~

Hopefully you can see that these articles lend credibility to the concept of raising your pH with baking soda in order to prevent infection by COVID-19. To learn more, read the following two articles by Dr. Sircus.

Coronavirus - Most Important Video You May Ever See

Dr. David Brownstein is a Board-Certified family physician and is one of the foremost practitioners of holistic medicine. He is the Medical Director of the Center for Holistic Medicine in West Bloomfield, MI. Here is a video of an interview with one of his patients. This video is very enlightening regarding the differences between the "conventional medicine" approach and the natural holistic approach to medicine ("Germ theory vs terrain theory").  

Dr. Brownstein interviews Coronavirus patient Chris.



Dr. Brownstein says ...

“At my office, we are not worried about COVID-19. We have been successfully treating coronavirus, influenza, rhinovirus and many other viral flu-like illnesses for 27 years. We have had success using natural therapies to enhance the body’s immune system as well as to kill viruses including flu-like viruses. I am confident these therapies will help them recover uneventfully. ... There are natural therapies that are effective against viral infections including coronavirus. Vitamins A, C, and D along with iodine have proven benefit. At the first sign of any illness, I suggest my patients take 100,000 U of vitamin A (NOT beta-carotene), 50,000 U of vitamin D3 and 5,000-10,000 mg of vitamin C per day for four days. Pregnant women should not take high doses of vitamins A and D. Vitamin C can be increased to bowel tolerance.”

NOTE: Dr. Brownstein warns that nebulizers should only be used in conjunction with your doctor’s advice.

Baking Soda a Cure for Humanity

More Evidence Supporting the Use of Baking Soda to Ward Off Viruses

The following is a video of Mrs. Edna Boone, who lived through the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918. Her family was the only family in town that did not get the flu. She attributes this to the fact that her mother gave everyone in the family a half teaspoon of baking soda every day. She talks about this at around 4:30 in the video.

Mrs. Edna Boone talks about the 1918 Spanish Flu and how her family was the only one in town that didn't get the disease. Her mother gave them baking soda and water every day.
