Newsletter 401: Trump Covid Treatment / Preparing Your Terrain for Second Wave
ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED OCTOBER 9, 2020
As you probably know, President Trump tested positive for Covid-19 a week ago. He has a team of doctors treating him. I found it very interesting to read about his treatment regimen. Here's a paragraph from an article I read:
"(Dr. Sean) Conley reiterated that Trump had received an antibody cocktail, as well as zinc, Vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and a daily aspirin. He also said Trump was taking a five day course of Remdesivir."
I don't know much about the other treatments but there are three items on this list which I've covered in my newsletters: zinc, vitamin D, and melatonin. These supplements have been shown to help in preventing and treating Covid-19 infections. Please see the sections below for more information about each of these.
I highly recommend starting with this basic information.
This newsletter makes a bold claim in the title, and backs it up in the articles and videos. Here's a brief summary:
- The COVID-19 pandemic could be resolved in 30 days for about $2 per person, simply by taking affirmative action to raise vitamin D levels among the general public
- Optimizing your vitamin D could reduce your risk of severe COVID-19 symptoms by 90% and your risk of dying from it by 96%
- Data from 20 European countries found the probability of developing and dying from COVID-19 is negatively correlated with mean population vitamin D status; both probabilities reach zero at vitamin D levels above 30 ng/mL
- Warnings about “excessive vitamin D intakes” being dangerous are misleading and unwarranted, as toxicity has not been demonstrated until you hit blood levels above 200 ng/mL
Great articles, research, and a good video by Dr. Vikki Petersen about melatonin for Covid-19.
I have not published a newsletter specifically about zinc, but here is a section from newsletter 380 entitled Immune Support That Works.
"Zinc is another critical nutrient, and most of us are zinc deficient. A virus cannot replicate without using the machinery and metabolism of a host cell. The replication process produces dramatic biochemical and structural changes in the host cell, damaging the cell while producing more viruses so the infection can spread to other cells. If replication is inhibited, so is the infection. An adequate amount of zinc in a cell is known to inhibit viral replication. I supplement with 50 mg of zinc per day, and someone with an active infection would do better at 75 mg."

Supplement Protocol for Prevention
Please read the following news release entitled Vitamin C Protects Against Coronavirus from the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service. Over 40 doctors participated in the editorial review and approved this protocol. This protocol is backed up with lots of linked research articles.
Below is a comparison of the doses in the Orthomolecular Medicine protocol and doses of Melaleuca’s Peak Performance Pack plus one pack of Activate-C plus one Vitality D3 daily.
Note: Some additional Vitamin C and Magnesium will be required for this "mega-dosing" protocol.
Note: Melatonin is not included in this protocol. It's benefits for Covid were discovered more recently. The new RestEz contains 5mg of melatonin.
