After my husband and I fought a three-week nightmare battling Covid, I found myself humbled and wanting to be sure to take our experiences to help others with this terrible, and I completely believe man-made, virus. I did research, listened to conferences, read articles, made phone calls, and now I’d like to share with you what we did right, what I learned and what I wish we did differently.
What we did right after exposure was to immediately wash out our noses with a warm saltwater saline and wash and gargle with hot salt water multiple times the first three days to clear out as much of the virus as we could in the very beginning. We also took large amounts of vitamins C, D and zinc to prepare our bodies for the war inside. I made hot soup with garlic and onion broth, and we braced for impact. Our ivermectin order had not yet arrived.
As the virus progressed inside us, our symptoms increased, and the kids and dogs got sick too. We even gave our dogs vitamin C.
Take vitamins C, D, zinc and ivermectin immediately at the first sign of symptoms. This is what’s called a “Covid Kit.” If you develop severe illness before acquiring this kit, it’s too late because it’s so hard to obtain.
We had weakness, serious muscle aches, fevers and all that stuff, but the dry cough that came on the second week was the worst. What a sneaky virus this is, as I had no idea my husband was slowly suffocating. I’ve never seen anything like it, no phlegm, no gasping for air, just tired and burning up. A call from an EMT friend offering to “check him out” saved his life. With new-found information and two hospital visits, I learned to educate myself.
For those who have not yet had Covid, here is a list I now recommend to anyone willing to read it. This is just my opinion.
1) Get power of attorney and advanced directives lined up for those you trust and who will fight for your life. Hospitals are both overwhelmed and following a deadly protocol in admitted patients. It includes payoffs for nasty drugs, isolation, separation and refusal of ivermectin. Fairbanks Medical Hospital allows one visitor last I heard, but there’s a big difference between a visitor (which is appreciated by the way), and a person with authority to make medical decisions on your behalf. You and your loved ones need to have an advocate.
2) This is not a flu. It’s designed to turn your immune system against you and shut down the part of your lungs that transfers oxygen to your blood. Be aggressive in early treatment. I stress, aggressive. If you don’t have ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine, get them. The CDC and FDA have removed them from hospital protocol and are making it difficult to get from pharmacies. Ivermectin combined with zinc helps keep the virus out of the cells. Also, buy an oxygen meter over the counter at any pharmacy. Oxygen levels in the 80s and low 90s are bad. Take vitamins C, D, zinc and ivermectin immediately at the first sign of symptoms. This is what’s called a “Covid Kit.” If you develop severe illness before acquiring without this kit, it’s too late because it’s so hard to obtain.
ALASKA WATCHMAN DIRECT TO YOUR INBOX
3) We were never afraid, and that was extremely important. Fear is a death trap and leaves people paralyzed. I found COVID to be a liar trying to trap us in bed which leads to blood clots and pneumonia. I learned to not stay in bed no matter what. Rest is great, but every day I got up and washed my dishes, my laundry, went outside and fed my animals and even shoveled snow in the beginning. I suggest you stand and walk a little everyday no matter how bad you feel. The high 12-day fever also wore out my husband, and with that I learned that COVID fevers are fine for a few days, and then that’s it. They’re too debilitating to just get rid of it. Take lots of fluids.
4) The final point is to watch your oxygen levels very carefully, and aggressively treat it early. I’ve heard that monoclonal therapy is a powerful tool for high-risk people. Do that early as well. It can only be used in the first 10 days of symptoms. Also, we found oral steroids for the lungs to be very helpful to open airways and increase oxygen.
I truly hope this helps someone to beat COVID.
Here’s a video I’d like to share as well to highlight the importance of avoiding hospital admissions:
We are wonderfully and fearfully made in the Image of God. Our immune systems are super powerful and adaptable. We don’t need to be afraid, but we must be prepared.
