PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY FROM CORONAVIRUS (& THE FLU VIRUS, TOO!)

March 13, 2020 at 1:57 pm Leave a comment

In my opinion, there is an enormous amount of unnecessary panic regarding the Wuhan virus. I am in a high risk group, but I am not really worried about it, because I haven’t had a cold or the flu in years. This, after almost dying from London flu in 1968. I was terribly ill for 12 weeks. Since then, I have become a chiropractic physician, a Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Internists and an herbalist.

Therefore, I would like to share with you what my 35 years of clinical experience have taught me.

The first and most important thing to know is that coronavirus is a single-stranded RNA virus, which is encapsulated. This last point is critical. Research has demonstrated that properly extracted St. John’s Wort (SJW) is a potent anti-viral, active against encapsulated viruses. For details regarding the research see this article, which I wrote several years ago when I lived at the epicenter of the West Nile Virus in So. California. Patients in my practice had excellent results; no one died and I don’t believe anyone got sick. You will notice that not only is SJW active against West Nile Virus, it also treats shingles, herpes and the common flu.

In fact, I have used SJW for years to treat shingles. If started early enough, it will eliminate the lesions in 48 hours. Long-standing cases take a little longer.

Why is this important? Because there is NO readily available, effective anti-viral pharmaceutical. This became apparent to me when I developed shingles due to exposure to a patient who had recently been vaccinated. I was taking acyclovir, but it really hadn’t done much to arrest the advance of the lesions, or (more importantly to me) alleviate the symptom of intense itching that made it very hard to function. In the midst of my attack, the Australian representative of MediHerb visited my office. She had two SJW tablets with her, which she immediately gave to me to take. Within ten minutes all of the itching was gone! Needless to say, I ordered a bottle and took the whole thing. By the time I was finished, all of the lesions had dried up and gone away; and, I had not had another episode of itching the entire time. (By the way, I consider the shingles vaccine to be very dangerous. It is a live virus vaccine and can transmit the disease. But that’s another story – for another time, perhaps.)

The only form of SJW that I use or recommend is made by MediHerb, which is a pharmaceutical house in Australia. Ground up leaves have no activity. Nor do American manufacturers preserve the anti-viral fraction effectively.

So, to protect yourself and your family, how do you take this product. For prevention 2 SJW morning and evening. If you have symptoms that concern you, increase to 2 tablets, three times per day. For children, use their body weight in the following formula to calculate how much they need:

Body weight = x/4 tabs

150 lbs

where x is the amount for the child. If symptomatic, use 6, instead of 4.

In addition, to boost your immune system, I recommend one of 2 products: Echinacea Premium or Thymunose. Both of these items boost and regulate the immune system. Thymunose is a mushroom extract that has immune enhancing effects. It is also about one-half the price of Echinacea. Both come in bottles of 120 tablets. Again, the dose for prevention is 1 tablet morning and evening. If symptomatic, double that.

Basically, I am providing this information as a tool that you can utilize if you are seriously concerned about the virus. Personally, I think one of the benefits is protection against flu, which kills far more people every year than coronavirus. If you need to order, please either call me at 626-303-3162 or email me at frontoffice@RichardsFamilyHealth.com. I will be happy to order and provide you with what you need. Take care. Don’t panic. Panic doesn’t serve any purpose.
