Coronavirus: How to protect yourself by boosting your immune system
There are some misunderstandings about the use of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for the use of the prevention of Coronavirus infection. We should understand that this virus is very resistant to most medicines can stay in the air for 3 hours on table chars etc. for 72 hours and the only medicine which can be effective is Chloroquine or Hydroxychloroquine. There is some data that during this pandemic 480000 people will be dying in America according to the University of Nebraska University) (https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/03/16/upshot/coronavirus-best-worst-death-toll-scenario.html).This is the only medicine which has proven scientifically to be effective in coronavirus.
It is true that it can prolong the qt interval and can cause heart problems but there are a huge number of medicines causing same effects.
Antibiotics: such as Levofloxacin (Leflox), Moxifloxacin, Erythromycin, Azithromycin (Azommax, Macrobac), Metronidazole (Flagyl). These antibiotics are being used very frequently and can prolong the qt interval.
Antifungal: Itraconazole (Sporanox), Fluconazole (Diflucan), Ketoconazole (Nizoral). Most frequently and used by dermatologists and some even for more than a month.
Adrenaline: Most important for the prevention of anaphylaxis (Epipen). This is life-saving medicine and the only medicine recommended for severe allergic reactions. Epipen or our Anaphylaxis Kit must be carried by all patients always with them in case of a severe allergic reaction but can still prolong the qt interval.
Antiarrhythmic Drugs: Quinidine, Procainamide, Diopromide for Heart diseases by the cardiologists having the same effect.
Antidepressants: Haloperidol, Droperidol Anesthetics like Halothane used in operation theatres for giving anesthesia to the patients.
It is not understandable when all the above medicines cause the prolongation of qt interval then why only misunderstanding about the only live-saving medicine from such deadly disease. It is recommended that Hydroxychloroquine 400mg or Chloroquine 500mg should be taken once a week until this pandemic is not over. If at all someone has symptoms like palpitations or rapid heartbeat, irregular heartbeat after the tablet then he can stop and consult the doctor. For heart patients who have prolonged QT intervals can consult their cardiologist’s others can take it. It is a low dose, just one tablet a week as compared to the above medicines. So protect yourself don’t take chances on your life and start taking one tablet once a week.
Secondly Immuno Boost: No one is immune to coronavirus infection. When our immune system is strong it can protect from coronavirus to some extent while after 50 the immune system is not strong. It has been scientifically proven that following immune-boosting medicines can be protective. So it is recommended to have daily following till this pandemic lasts:
n Hydroxychloroquine 400mg once a week or Chloroquine 500mg weekly on the same day and same time with meals (Not recommended for patients with h/o retinopathy or allergy to chloroquine.
n High Dose of Vitamin C (1500mg to 2000mg daily)
n High dose of Zinc 30mg daily
n High Dose of Magnesium 400mg
n Vitamin D in persons with deficiency of Vitamin D.
I have formulated Immunoboost Formula containing same concentrations but people can buy similar strength from any pharmacy and that will also be effective.
