October 2020: President Trump's COVID-19 treatment included zinc, Vitamin D, melatonin, aspirin, the heartburn drug famotidine, and an "investigational antibody cocktail" called REGN-COV2, a combination of two monoclonal antibodies (REGN10933 and REGN10987) which the company describes as "designed specifically to block infectivity of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19." Remdesivir therapy was later added. (Please see Remdesivir new safety concerns and concerns about the clinical trials.)
Glutathione is found in every single cell of your body. It's essential for detoxificaiton and immune health. Glutathione acts like your body's handyman, repairing cellular damage and removing toxins. In fact, one reason why all of the nutrient and oxygen therapies work so well is because in some way, they all support glutathione production, recycling, and utilization. There's so much to learn about glutathione, we've dedicated a full page to the subject.
A vital paper titled Evidence Supporting a Phased Immuno-physiological Approach to COVID-19 From Prevention Through Recovery published in IMCJ Integrative Medicine – A Clinician’s Journal provides a comprehensive approach to preventing infection as well as addressing symptoms at varying stages, with nutrients and therapies that support optimal immune system function.
This case series study of 107 successfully recovered patients represents one of a vast variety of natural approaches utilizing nutrient protocols, and ozone & hydrogen peroxide therapies. "Every substance used in our cohort is either an essential nutrient or an oxidant mediator actually manufactured by the body. Nothing foreign to the body was used, nor anything patentable." Recovery times were rapid. "Patients reported feeling completely better after 6.9 days." LEARN MORE
"The MATH+ Hospital Treatment Protocol for COVID-19 is a physiologic-based combination treatment regimen developed by leaders in critical care medicine. All component medicines are FDA-approved, inexpensive, readily available and have been used for decades with well-established safety profiles . . . [MATH+] is intended for use early in the hospitalization of patients presenting with states of respiratory distress requiring supplemental oxygen."
No treatment is more political right now than HCQ. But doctors across the United States and around the world have reported that when given at the appropriate time with zinc, and sometimes with azithromycin, it is capable of preventing infection or recovering patients.
A country-based analysis found a 77.8% lower death rate for the countries that adopted early HCQ treatment. See the analysis.
A growing list of studies on HCQ can be found at C19study.com
Quercetin is a natural alternative to HCQ. "Quercetin displays a broad range of antiviral properties which can interfere at multiple steps of pathogen virulence — virus entry, virus replication, protein assembly —and that these therapeutic effects can be augmented by the co-administration of vitamin C. Furthermore, due to their lack of severe side effects and low-costs, we strongly suggest the combined administration of these two compounds for both the prophylaxis and the early treatment of respiratory tract infections, especially including COVID-19 patients."
Vitamin C is a core component of preventive and treatment protocols.
"When we are challenged with a viral infection, our need for vitamin C can rise dramatically, depending on the body's immune function, level of injury, infection, or environmental toxicity such as cigarette smoke. Ascorbate at sufficiently high doses can prevent viral disease and greatly speed recovery from an acute viral infection." SOURCE

Vitamins D deficiency and insufficiency are being reported in studies as factors that increase risk of infection and poor outcomes.

Zinc is a mineral known to shut down viral replication and critical to resisting and recovering from infections.

Many other nutrients, such as Vitamin A, are vital for the immune system and utilized in many protocols.
A list of COVID-19 treatments ranging from currently available to some now in clinical trials can be found at:
ACIM Immune Support Protocol
"Developed by healthcare practitioners that are members of the Academy of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine (ACIM), the protocol is a reasonable consideration for prevention of viral illness as well as outpatient treatment at the first sign of symptoms. The ACIM physician authors have each had several decades of experience treating various severe acute viral illnesses in their patients using the tools discussed in this article."
"Hydrogen Peroxide has been used for decades to conquer viral infections by thousands of doctors in thousands of patients all over the world. Hydrogen peroxide consists of a water molecule (H2O) with an extra oxygen atom (H2O2). It is the extra oxygen atom that makes it so deadly for viruses. Nebulization is a new way of administering hydrogen peroxide therapy that is almost as effective as the IV."LEARN MORE
"There is significant data showing that melatonin limits virus-related diseases and would also likely be beneficial in COVID-19 patients." SOURCE

Because there have been many anecdotal stories of recovery, the growing evidence of the utility of steroids in general for treating COVID-19, and the plausible biological mechanism of action, we include budesonide for individuals and practitioners to explore.
"Budesonide is an inhaled corticosteroid that is currently being studied for its efficacy with COVID-19. It is a common, safe prescription therapy that is FDA-approved for breathing issues."
See this video: COVID’S SILVER BULLET?
Clinical Trials are now underway on this corticosteroid asthma medication, but so far, none appear to be designed to replicate how they've been successfully used in real world cases. Check HERE to read details, follow studies, and find any new studies.
The FDA states: "Sometimes called “compassionate use”, expanded access is a potential pathway for a patient with an immediately life-threatening condition or serious disease or condition to gain access to an investigational medical product (drug, biologic, or medical device) for treatment outside of clinical trials when no comparable or satisfactory alternative therapy options are available. "
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) saturates every cell of your body with oxygen, speeds healing, reduces inflammation, addresses hypoxia, and increases glutathione production. Clinical trials are proving very successful for this safe and effective treatment, but the FDA is inexplicably blocking emergency use authorization, slowing access to this lifesaving treatment. However it IS available through Compassionate Use. A group of engineers, doctors, and HBOT experts have devised an ingenious plan to get HBOT to anyone who needs it.
"AVM0703 is a purer, loaded formulation of dexamethasone that could enable single acute doses to replace chronic repeat dosing. Rapid 6 hour onset of action could eliminate infected monocytes and neutrophils that are driving lung damage. Mobilization of supercharged Natural Killer T and cytotoxic T cells could eliminate the virus and provide long term immunity. Supercharged immune cells are 10X more activatable than ordinary immune cells. This dosing could save more lives than repeat 10-day dosing and could reduce ICU days from 10+ days to 2-3 days, which could be a significant financial impact benefiting healthcare systems and patients. This innovative treatment is approved for human trials in several types of blood cancer (ClinicalTrials.Gov, 2020). It is critical that AVM0703 be tested in rigorous controlled clinical trials in severely ill COVID-19 patients."
