    Hi Jack and everyone,

    I tuned in late to the Q&A the other day but I will be on today. My girlfriends co-worker that she sits next to is sick with a fever, cough, and aches. He's going to get tested for the virus but could only get an appointment tomorrow at 5:45PM.

    What can we do to keep healthy? What are the steps to take if we get the virus? We planned to go down to Florida this weekend but I'm not sure we should now until we get the tests to avoid possibly infecting others.

    Any help appreciated!

  2. Stay at home if you are showing symptoms. No telling how many people you could infect if you are positive.

    What I have understand, Methylene blue, Thiamine and vit C could all help....
    But please research yourself because that is only what I have read.

    It is another anti-malarial that works on cell membranes. Very similar to Plaquenil and safer.

    For each but especially for Chloroquine
    what is the protocol of using it? (for corona virus infection)


    ......................................................
    https://www.rxlist.com/aralen-drug.htm#dosage
    DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION (for malariae)
    The dosage of chloroquine phosphate is often expressed in terms of equivalent chloroquine base.
    Each 500 mg tablet of ARALEN contains the equivalent of 300 mg chloroquine base.
    In infants and children the dosage is preferably calculated by body weight.

    Malaria

    Suppression — Adult Dose: 500 mg (= 300 mg base) on exactly the same day of each week.


    Pediatric Dose: The weekly suppressive dosage is 5 mg calculated as base, per kg of body weight, but should not exceed the adult dose regardless of weight.

    If circumstances permit, suppressive therapy should begin two weeks prior to exposure. However, failing this in adults, an initial double (loading) dose of 1 g (= 600 mg base), or in children 10 mg base/kg may be taken in two divided doses, six hours apart. The suppressive therapy should be continued for eight weeks after leaving the endemic area.

    For Treatment of Acute Attack
    Adults: An initial dose of 1 g (= 600 mg base) followed by an additional 500 mg (= 300 mg base) after six to eight hours and a single dose of 500 mg (= 300 mg base) on each of two consecutive days. This represents a total dose of 2.5 g chloroquine phosphate or 1.5 g base in three days.

    The dosage for adults of low body weight and for infants and children should be determined as follows:

    First dose: 10 mg base per kg (but not exceeding a single dose of 600 mg base).

    Second dose: (6 hours after first dose) 5 mg base per kg (but not exceeding a single dose of 300 mg base).

    Third dose: (24 hours after first dose) 5 mg base per kg.

    Fourth dose: (36 hours after first dose) 5 mg base per kg.

    For radical cure of vivax and malariae malaria concomitant therapy with an 8-aminoquinoline compound is necessary.

    Extraintestinal Amebiasis
    Adults, 1 g (600 mg base) daily for two days, followed by 500 mg (300 mg base) daily for at least two to three weeks. Treatment is usually combined with an effective intestinal amebicide.

    Geriatric Use
    See PRECAUTIONS, Geriatric Use.

    Privacy & Trust Info
    Drug Description
    ARALEN®
    (chloroquine phosphate) Tablets for Oral Administration, USP

    DESCRIPTION
    ARALEN, chloroquine phosphate, USP, is a 4-aminoquinoline compound for oral administration. It is a white, odorless, bitter tasting, crystalline substance, freely soluble in water.

    ARALEN is an antimalarial and amebicidal drug.

    Chemically, it is 7-chloro-4-[[4-(diethylamino)-1-methylbutyl]amino] quinoline phosphate (1:2) and has the following structural formula:



    [​IMG]
    Each tablet contains 500 mg of chloroquine phosphate USP, equivalent to 300 mg chloroquine base.

    Inactive Ingredients: Carnauba Wax, Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Dibasic Calcium Phosphate, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Magnesium Stearate, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Polyethylene Glycol, Polysorbate 80, Pregelatinized Starch, Sodium Starch Glycolate, Stearic Acid, Titanium Dioxide.

    Indications
    INDICATIONS
    ARALEN is indicated for the suppressive treatment and for acute attacks of malaria due to P. vivax, P.malariae, P. ovale, and susceptible strains of P. falciparum. The drug is also indicated for the treatment of extraintestinal amebiasis.

    ARALEN does not prevent relapses in patients with vivax or malariae malaria because it is not effective against exoerythrocytic forms of the parasite, nor will it prevent vivax or malariae infection when administered as a prophylactic. It is highly effective as a suppressive agent in patients with vivax or malariae malaria, in terminating acute attacks, and significantly lengthening the interval between treatment and relapse. In patients with falciparum malaria it abolishes the acute attack and effects complete cure of the infection, unless due to a resistant strain of P. falciparum.

    Thank you, everyone, for the suggestions and information. I'm also sitting under my reptile bulb 20 minutes per day, 4 times a day which is what dr. kruse suggested yesterday during the Q & A. Today I took 200mg of Thiamine, I'll take 1,000mg of vit C, monolaurin, and l-lysine which are anti-virals that I was already on for EBV. It's a UV 6 here today so I will spend most of my time outside.

    I was trying to use my SaunaSpace infrared bulb earlier in the week, but for some reason it was bothering me and causing me to feel very low, with muscle aches and pain. I do have an issue with my vagus nerve, vasovagal syncope with parasympathetic excess and sympathetic withdrawal. I'm wondering if the near infrared bulb causes a parasympathetic response that is too much for my nervous system to handle.

    Yes you can overdose easy on IR. It is very individual, so go with how you feel. Less is more :)
    If you are outside all day you get lots of IR - in the very best form - too so you want need a lamp then :)

    Newest info (from J)
    Chloroquine

    When feeling well don't use it.
    When using it, break the 500mg pill and use a little bit over 7 days.

    For iodine, I would suggest swabbing it on the back of the mouth if you get a sore throat. It's somewhat difficult with the stronger iodines, like lugols, but with the lesser-strength iodines it is easy and extremely effective for sore throat. When I got sick in March, I fought sore throat for a couple days, but the disease did not progress further. Well, except for periodically clearing my throat for a month.

    A gentle iodine (in a suspension with glycerin) can also be swabbed in the nose.
