I’ve heard they have a few different things that are working well but I’m not a doctor. I’m just repeating something I’ve heard on the dr drew podcast.

Load up on C, Zinc, D (sunlight) and magnesium! Get lots of rest. I had it back in August and it wasn’t a big deal at all fortunately. My dad got it too and he’s in mid 60’s and has just gotten off chemo...his chief complaint was fatigue and he’s doing great. Also, consider finding a rural doctor to teleconference with you. I found one who has had success treating it with tamiflu and an antibiotic to help stave off any pneumonia but was told if that doesn’t work I could get the other medicine. Be well friend! You should do just fine!

I am doing okay so far .I am doing the zinc and vitamin d. Drinking plenty of liquids, rest as much as possible.
My fever seems to come and go. When I have a fever it feels like someone beat me with a 2x4.
This is all very good advice And thanks for checking on me.

One of my employees had to virus and he swears that letting his fever/temp remain at 100-102 for 2 consecutive days actually sped up his recovery. I don't know if there is any science behind that but he was really sick for about 4-5 days and then relatively chipper and energetic the following week. (on Zoom call anyway)

Absolutely there is. That's the whole reason your body runs a temperature when it detects an infection. Most viruses can't survive at temps slighlty above normal human metabolism. So as part of the immune response, it carefully raises body temp to burn out the infection. The game of course is raising temp just enough to work, but not so far as to kill the entire body.

The first thing many people do when they get a fever is to try and bring it down, but that may be a mistake. You really want the fever to run hot enough, long enough to suppress the infection, but not end up killing yourself in the process.

Your friend played the game well.

Now that is interesting. I have never had that explained before.

I had the Kung Flu back in January. Me and two of my close friends. All three hospitalized for 3-5 days respectively. At the time it was diagnosed as pneumonia, later testing showed the antibodies. The one guy has bad asthma, all in our 40s. It sucked.

Stay well my friend.

Prayers. Thanks for sharing your experience with it. My lungs suck, and I've got hypertension, so I've been a bit apprehensive about how my experience may go. Real stories from real people getting through it help. Thank you.

We went to a 70th birthday party for a friend of my wife Saturday night. E-vite said masks to be worn and an outdoor party of about 35 guests with 3 Nashville musicians. I wore my mask, but nobody else did, not even my wife. We sat outside, but my wife chatted with the hostess and others inside. We got an email from the birthday girl a few minutes ago saying that a guest had tested positive. Awww Shit! Getting tested tomorrow at a drive-through; day 5. Shit Shit Shit!

Nutrients Strengthen the Immune System Against Viral Infections
Orange and supplements for vitamin c

A review published in the Archives of Physiology and Biochemistry found evidence for nutrients including protein, vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids, that strengthen the human immune system against viral infections.*

Fifty-one articles were reviewed, which focused on the effects of nutrients in immunity and viral infections. They included reports of randomized trials, case-control studies, in vivo studies, and randomized-trial meta-analyses.

These studies identified protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, B1, B6, B12, C, D and E, iron, selenium, and zinc as having a role in strengthening the immune system and supporting immune function.

Among the mechanisms discussed are:

The role of amino acids in the immune system’s antiviral actions,
Vitamin A’s involvement in maintaining mucosal integrity,
Vitamin C’s anti-inflammatory effect in sepsis,
Vitamin D-associated reduction of viral replication rates and inflammatory cytokine levels,
Vitamin E’s ability to help maintain T-cell membrane integrity, and
Zinc’s ability to impair viral replication.

I'm sure you will get much better soon. Took me quite a while (age and some re-existing health problems).

Today was first day of not being followed by a daily phone call and several other calls per week from VA TeleHealth.

I think my only lingering effects are that I am weak as a kitten and have zero endurance. If I get up from my computer chair and walk out thru the house to the garage, I end up stopping when I get there to recover.

The VA nurse, in our discharge conference yesterday, said that was the most prevalent complaint of those who'd had the virus.

My wife is back to 2-3 miles of pretty fast walking a day, still doesn't have any sense of smell or taste.

I'm not sure how old you are, but am pretty sure you are younger than me and that is in your favor. All you can do is hang in there, try to do some mild exercise and wait for time to heal you.

Bob
