There’s a local doctor who uses nebulized food grade hydrogen peroxide in his practice and claims to have successfully treated several covid patients. He has a study.

Can you ladies take a look and weigh in on this? It’s relatively inexpensive and supposedly offers noticeable improvement after a few treatments.

I’m still taking my supplements and masking up but I like the idea of having something like this on hand. It only requires a nebulizer, food grade hydrogen peroxide, saline, iodine, and one other item I’m forgetting that I think is optional. He recommends supplements as well but I’m specifically asking for input on the hydrogen peroxide treatment. Is there any danger from inhaling .04% of peroxide and do you see any obvious red flags?

If this works I think we should all buy the ingredients now. This stuff could sell out quicker than toilet paper if it’s effective.
This is interesting. I know it has been used (in Nebulizer form) on patients with COPD and Bronchiectasis. I think I also read somewhere that it is being used as a prophylaxis in Italy by some healthcare professionals in the form of mouthwashes and nasal lavage. I also read that it may reduce the viral load when used as a mouthwash and as a nasal lavage as it kills the virus when it comes into contact on the mucosa.

But people would have to be very careful if they decide to use it as a Nebulize without a doctors supervision, it can cause serious harm (eg bronchospasm) if the concentration is wrong.

I just heard that the Pfizer vaccine is a Mrna vaccine which has NEVER been approved by the FDA.
If this is not the case pls let me know.

That's interesting...

When I got Pneumonia last year, I used colloidal silver in a nebulizer ...I believe it definitely helped me get rid of it, and quickly.

A good friend of the family died last night. He was recently diagnosed with covid. His daughter has covid as well. Before he found out he had some friends over for lunch. They practiced social distancing but at least one other person has tested positive. To be fair, we don't know that he didn't already have it. He may have given it to the guy who passed.

I hate how this is hitting our community so hard. Can't believe black people joked about being immune when this started and now covid has put a target on our backs collectively.

This guy was my dad's best friend. After my father passed earlier this year, I imagined him walking me down the aisle in his place.
I am so sorry to hear about your father and his friend. You have my deepest sympathies.

Cancer diagnoses have been down, drastically in some places, because people are not going in for check-ups plus it’s harder to get appointments with your healthcare provider these days unless it’s urgent and they are the first contact in the process towards diagnosis. Therefore, I see a big spike in cancer mortality next year and beyond...
I swear that’s the only thing that is finally getting through to some of these idiots I live with complaining about masks and social distancing. I have been basically quarantining and isolating all year only going to the store as needed and it has taken a massive mental and psychological toll just so I can see my parents but I know it’s necessary. SO out here complaining about shut downs and how they’re affecting small businesses and Covid is a scam to make money then my uncle was diagnosed with prostate cancer on Monday and my cousin disclosed that she has congestive heart failure at 50. I spoke with the urologist and they told us to make a decision bc he’s recommending prostatectomy and do it soon bc there’s no beds in the hospital. I been shouting from the rooftops since March that this was happening. I tell the tweedles that I live with that my uncle has cancer and they may need to delay or even cancel the surgery and they’re like no way he has cancer they have to take him. I’m like YOU DON’T GET IT. They don’t have beds or doctors for everybody right now bc COVID is taking up all these resources. Doctors tend to have god complexes and now they are getting their chance to play God and they don’t really like it. Who do you take? A poor 70 year old uneducated black man on Medicare with aggressive prostate cancer who lacks resources to care for himself post surgery or a 30 year old young patient with top insurance who has a better chance of surviving? Everyone ain’t gonna get a slot right now. They’re like

Illinois has over 15,000 new cases *today* and there are still 9 hours left in the day! Everything should be locked down over there.

But the whole country is a Covid mess right now... a million new cases in one week, over 162,000 new cases yesterday alone... as if Trump’s voters are racing to catch and spread it before Biden takes away the opportunity. (I know, I know... cases are rising everywhere, including “blue” states.)
I don’t understand what’s going on bc everyone appears to be complying with the mask mandate out in public here in Chicago. But what do I know I stay at home 99% of the time. The shut down was like my normal existence :lol: My dad blames the unnecessary opening of bars for the spread.

Oh dining-in at restaurants are a major cause as well as the cigar bars and video gaming spots. I walked by a barbershop and nobody had a mask on, and on that same strip was a daycare and nobody had their masks on. People still get together like nothing is going on out here. Don’t think for one minute all of these people are going to stay put during thanksgiving and Black Friday.
I turned into a hermit before all of this so I’m right with you. I only see what’s going on when I’m running errands.
there are a lot of people that I will not socialize with again. This year has really uncovered the thought process of a lot people.

OK, I apologize if this
has been posted but
did you all hear about this:



I am still confused
as to why politicians
and now lawyers
are suddenly experts
on health?

@PatDM'T I don't recall seeing this before. It's crazy to me that it's ok to require the vaccine but masks were an affront to civil liberties. Was it because they didn't believe they worked? Cause I hear the same concern about the vaccine.
There is money in vaccines.
I think that makes a difference.

I am angry that
people refused to
listen to good
sensible advice from
doctors and scientists
with regard to Covid-19
just like they are ignoring
it w/r/t the environment
then they wonder why
we are in a mess.

So now to fix the mess
is rush a money-making
remedy and make it
mandatory?
GTHHOH

I still remember
when idiots in MI
came out with guns
to protest wearing masks
and quarantine.
This was early days
and all I was thinking is
why not do as we
are being told
so Covid spreading
can be stopped
and THEN we can open
like S Korea did.

Going out with no masks
because it is your right
to get sick if you want
is such backward
thinking that I
continue to say
when it comes to
lacking brains....
we are not the ones.

Now that I have been working with someone who has Covid I am starting to feel stressed. On the night we found out we had to swab 60 patients. Thank god all came back negative. one had symptoms and I got all worked up thinking this person had it and was going to die. I was crying. I feel kinda stupid And embarrassed because I was dry heaving and trying to stop in front of another nurse. I was overwhelmed. She was too as she has a young baby. DH is working out of town and I told him he should sleep in the guest bedroom when he came back for the weekend. But then we were like to heck with it if we die we die together :look: I know I’m being melodramatic but for the first time it’s real and in front of me. Though I have family who had it we are not in the same countries so it seemed further away from me. I am sorting out our wills and making sure our life insurances are in order:look:

I pray you and your husband remain healthy.

Serious question. What could’ve been done before now to make it real to you? Is there something you could’ve heard or seen that would’ve made a difference?

My job extended WFH until end of January. They send out email every time someone in the office get a positive test. We've had 4 in the last 30 days, all warehouse workers. The warehouse is connected to the main building, anyone can walk pretty much anywhere in the building - no restrictions, so although they are doing contact tracing I wonder if they are asking them what other parts of the building they've been in and disinfecting those areas too.

I saw someone on FB post a picture of them speaking at a personal development workshop. Saw masks on peoples's desk but not their faces.

Someone I know caught it from family visiting from out of state. People still hosting craft shows, vendor events, pop-ups, had Halloween parties. I don't trust that people are going to change their Thanksgiving plans either.

Like I really want to go back to the movies at some point people. That's honestly the thing I miss the most. Can ya'll chill?

This was my go to activity whenever I was bored. I'd pick an odd time and go to a theater with reclining seats, food, and liquor (don't judge me). My job is a few feet away from a movie theater but I don't see that happening any time soon.

Nothing, other than what’s happening now, being around people who have it. Maybe I worded that wrong. It was always real. But now that I am around people who are known to be positive there is more urgency and alarm. I feel shook lol. So is everyone else at work. We are worried about the patients, we are worried about taking it home to our loved ones. People are considering their options More carefully. Or lack of options...

I understood what you meant. Early in the pandemic, it was just news (real news of course!) that I saw from a distance. Then I got sign out of a patient who had it and I had to go into his room to round on him, I hyperventilated the whole way to the patient room. :look: :lol: He was the first patient I interacted with who was COVID positive. Now I am less shook in my encounters. :lol:

I've been reading up on nebulizing colloidal silver for chest infections. Seems like it and glutathione are especially helpful for treating asthma but it has to be the right type of glutathione. I've gone down a rabbit hole but it's all very interesting. I wish I'd known about this years ago when I was getting bronchitis repeatedly. I think this might've helped.

A 5 year old black girl has died in Texas. May she RIP.

Kindergartner in Texas Reportedly Dies From COVID-19
www.medscape.com

A mom and dad in Texas say their 5-year-old daughter died less than 24 hours after testing positive for COVID-19.

Little Tagan's parents, Lastassija White and Quincy Drone, told TV station KAMR that she didn't have the common symptoms of COVID-19, such as a fever, coughing, or a sore throat. But she was sleeping a lot more than usual and vomiting, so they took her to the emergency room. That's when the kindergartner tested positive for the virus.
White said doctors assured her that her daughter would be fine and that the virus mainly affected older adults, so they returned home. But Tagan's condition continued to worsen. Later that night, Tagan was found unresponsive and was pronounced dead.

"My daughter was perfectly healthy. Perfectly healthy. There's no way that should have happened," White told KAMR. "She knew she needed to wear a mask. Like sometimes I would forget my mask and she would say, 'Mom, you don't have a mask!' "

"We're trying to bring light, so this doesn't happen again," Drone said. "This doctor told us that our child would be fine, and our child didn't even make it 24 hours. She died within the next 15 hours."

The Amarillo Independent School District told KAMR that it would not confirm the kindergartner's death, because the district only reports COVID-19 cases in their schools, not fatalities.

There have been almost 1 million confirmed cases of the virus in Texas since the beginning of the pandemic, according to the state's Department of State Health Services. Click hereto see the state's latest numbers.

The thing is that even though the little girl "looked" healthy, there probably was some underlying undiagnosed problem that Covid triggered. Yet again, this is what the problem is when people keep including healthcare workers repeating that there's segments of the population (young people) who don't have to worry about Covid when the truth is nobody friggin knows. If there was one genetic disease that ran in the family history then they should have factored that into the decision to just send her home.

That just breaks my heart. I never believed them about kids not getting it. There is another heart breaking account on that Own show Black Love similar to this one. They had a two part covid section on that last season of the show. Just heartbreaking. The one thing I am grateful about is that there is some visibility about the impact on this and kids. I know the statistics and stuff but that one in however large the statistic feels like the only one that matters when it's yours.

ETA: The couple was Vonnie and Ebbie. It's part 1 and 2 of this seasons Black Love episodes "In this Together". The short youtube clips don't really do the full episodes justice. A lot of people don't know what hit them when it hits their young kids and they believed their kids would be okay if they caught it.
