What’s Going on In People’s Lungs And What Should They Do About It?

Published on January 10, 2024

A healthy, warm, alkaline body will not support a pH-sensitive virus. That is an excellent place to start. Start today with sodium bicarbonate! Health and keeping warm during cold weather are the best protection for children and adults to avoid severe respiratory infections. Taking vaccines of any type is probably the worst because they often compromise health and immune system strength.

The more alkaline you are, the more oxygen your fluids can hold and keep. Oxygen also buffers/oxidizes metabolic waste acids, helping to keep you more alkaline. The quickest way to increase oxygen and pH is through sodium bicarbonate administration, which is why bicarbonate has always been a mainstay in emergency rooms and intensive care medicine. When we increase oxygen and pH levels, we simultaneously increase cellular voltage.

“The Secret of Life is both to feed and nourish the cells and let them flush their waste and toxins,” according to Dr. Alexis Carrell, Nobel Prize recipient in 1912. Dr. Otto Warburg, also a Nobel Prize recipient, in 1931 & 1944, said, “If our internal environment was changed from an acidic oxygen-deprived environment to an alkaline environment full of oxygen, viruses, bacteria, and fungus cannot live.”

Best Treatments For The Lungs

The best way to treat lung infections once they occur is to treat the lungs by nebulizing substances like bicarbonate, glutathione, iodine, hydrogen peroxide, and nebulizing magnesium. Hydrogen and oxygen inhalation would also be helpful if either hospitals or homes had a hydrogen oxygen inhalation system. Of course, hospitals and doctors are not interested in these better ways, and that is sad.

Prof. Zhong Nanshan, a Chinese epidemiologist and pulmonologist, recommends the hydrogen-oxygen gas mix inhalation based on data from Chinese patients in Wuhan. National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China says, “Inhaling mixed 66.6% hydrogen and 33.3% oxygen is advised to treat the COVID-19 virus pneumonia.” It is on the top of their treatment list for seriously ill patients.

I would also venture to say that carbon dioxide inhalation would have a dramatic positive effect during respiratory infections because it would release so much oxygen. Vitamin D should also be included in this lineup of natural medicines. Dr. Isaac Solaimanzadeh said, “Both COVID-19 and High-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) exhibit a decreased ratio of arterial oxygen partial pressure to fractional inspired oxygen with attendant hypoxia and tachypnea. There also appears to be a tendency for low carbon dioxide levels in both as well.” T Cells are the Marines of your Immune System, and they are a lot stronger and more effective when both carbon dioxide and oxygen levels are high.

I have been nebulizing glutathione with baking soda for my chronic bronchitis.
I was astounded the first time I used it. I did not have any problems coughing
up mucus for 24 hours, and I had a lot less discharge over the next few days.

Disrupting science is a significant component of the pharmaceutical industry business model. When natural substances like those mentioned above threaten pharmaceutical interests, Big Pharma will pretend they don’t exist, and doctors will go right along with their denial.

The medical establishment gets hysterical about viruses because it refuses to learn about and use the best and safest treatments for them. As early as June 1, 1905, an article was printed in the New York Times about the successful use of iodine for consumption/tuberculosis. Though iodine kills most pathogens on the skin within 90 seconds, modern medicine has wholly ignored its use as an antibiotic/antiviral/antifungal.

Iodine exhibits activity against bacteria, molds, yeasts, protozoa, and many viruses; indeed, of all antiseptic preparations suitable for direct use on humans and animals and upon tissues, only iodine is capable of killing all classes of pathogens: gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi, yeasts, viruses and protozoa. Most bacteria are killed within 15 to 30 seconds of contact. Chlorine dioxide has a similar effect, and that is why half the water systems in America use it.

“Extremely high doses of iodine can have serious side effects, but only a small fraction of such extreme doses are necessary to kill influenza viruses,” writes Dr. David Derry of Canada. In 1945, a breakthrough occurred when J. D. Stone and Sir McFarland Burnet (who later won a Nobel Prize for his Clonal Selection Theory) exposed mice to the lethal effects of influenza viral mists. The deadly disease was prevented by putting iodine solution on mice snouts before placing them in chambers containing influenza viruses. Dr. Derry reminds us that a long time ago, students in classrooms were protected from influenza by iodine aerosol therapy. Aerosol iodine is also effective against freshly sprayed influenza virus.

There’s also been an uptick in anecdotal reports of a brutal,
long-lasting cough going around. As put it: everyone
seems to have “a hacking cough that’s been going on for weeks.”

As seasonal virus activity surges across the United States in January, experts stress the importance of preventive measures – such as masking and vaccination. All eligible children should receive the RSV shot ‘as quickly as possible,’ CDC says. Masking increases risk via diminishing oxygen inflow and pathogen build-up on the mask material.

As vaccination rates have increased and new variants appeared, the share of
deaths of people vaccinated have steadily risen. In September 2021, vaccinated
people made up just 23 percent of coronavirus fatalities. In January and February
this year, it was up to 42 percent. At the end of 2022, it was way up to 58 percent.

Though they lie and say that vaccines can help prevent severe illness and death, it’s good news to read that vaccine uptake remains low this season. CDC data shows that 19% of adults and 8% of children have gotten the latest COVID-19 vaccine, and 17% of adults 60 and older have gotten the new RSV vaccine. Less than half of adults and children have gotten the flu vaccine this season.

In the olden days, medically speaking, pediatricians and general practitioners understood that you didn’t vaccinate a child who was already ill, even if they had a terrible cold or light flu.

An intelligent protocol against influenza, RSV, and even COVID-19 infections involves using the natural medicines mentioned above, several of which are basic emergency room and intensive care medicines, which I recommend in high dosages given frequently. In twenty hours, with treatments being applied every two waking hours, the application of emergency room medicines like sodium bicarbonate, magnesium, and iodine will make every difference to someone in agony threatened by death. And it certainly will make someone more comfortable if their influenza or other pathogen-led distress is milder.

Infrared mats are dream medical devices when
one has the flu or any viral infection. The only
place to be when sick is on an infrared mattress.

These medicines offer multiple administration procedures, including I.V.s, oral, transdermal, and via nebulization, which can be combined for maximum effect. Also, administering magnesium and a high dose of Vitamin D via injection could be more than helpful in emergencies.

Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)

“In 1918 and 1919, while fighting the ‘Flu’ with the U. S. Public Health Service, it was brought to my attention that rarely anyone who had been thoroughly alkalinized with bicarbonate of soda contracted the disease, and those who did contract it, if alkalinized early, would invariably have mild attacks. I have since that time treated all cases of ‘cold,’ influenza and ‘la gripe’ by first giving generous doses of bicarbonate of soda, and in many, many instances within 36 hours the symptoms would have entirely abated,” wrote Dr. Volney S. Cheney to the Arm & Hammer Company.

Vitamin D Will Protect Against the Flu

One of the most significant triggers of influenza, the swine flu, and deaths from pulmonary deficiency is vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D reduces the risk of dying from all causes, including the flu. Researchers from Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, New York, found that giving vitamin D supplements to a group of volunteers reduced episodes of infection with colds and flu by 70% over three years. The researchers said the vitamin stimulated “innate immunity” to viruses and bacteria.

A new study has found that the number of people being diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency has tripled from 2008 to 2010 in the United States. Some researchers believe that up to 75% of the United States population may not be getting enough vitamin D (levels below 30 ng/ml).

Reduced exposure to solar radiation, leading to a deficiency of vitamin D and hence impaired innate immunity, has been suggested as a trigger for influenza viral replication and as an explanation of seasonal influenza.


Selenium is a potent antioxidant anti-inflammatory that can also be used. Protection against reperfusion injury, myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, and vascular surgery are all alleviated with selenium injections, as would cytokine storms provoked from out-of-control infections.

The clinical investigations in sepsis studies indicate that higher doses of selenium are well tolerated as continuous infusions of selenium as sodium selenite (4,000 μg selenium as sodium selenite pentahydrate on the first day, 1,000 μg selenium/day on the nine following days) and had no reported toxicity issues. Given this new information, Biosyn introduced the 1,000 µg dose vials for such high selenium clinical usage.

Selenium is essential because selenium-deficient mice developed much more severe lung pathology after infection with the influenza virus than selenium-adequate mice. In another study, when selenium-deficient mice were infected with a mild strain of influenza virus, the virus mutated to become a more virulent strain, one that caused severe lung pathology even in selenium-adequate mice.

Selenium is also an antidote to mercury, with the highest affinity to it. So selenium does double duty, lowering mercury toxicity, and this is important because mercury toxicity is known to provoke influenza.

Magnesium Chloride

Magnesium chloride (magnesium oil) has always been and remains my favorite medicine that affects overall physiology positively and directly. Dr. Raul Vergini says, “Magnesium chloride has a unique healing power on acute viral and bacterial diseases. It cured polio and diphtheria, which was the main subject of my magnesium book. A few grams of magnesium chloride every few hours will clear nearly all acute illnesses, which can be beaten in a few hours. I have seen many flu cases healed in 24-48 hours with 3 grams of magnesium chloride taken every 6-8 hours.”

This is an excellent example of how to transform natural substances into potent medicines without equal in the pharmaceutical world. If you follow Dr. Vergini’s advice, just be prepared to spend much time in the bathroom. After all, magnesium is the best possible medicine for constipation.

Vitamin C

Intravenous vitamin C is a beautiful treatment when people are on the edge between life and death, and it can bring people back from the brink. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) contributes a wide range of benefits. It performs many critical bodily functions involving detoxification, tissue building, immune enhancement, pain control, and controlling or killing pathogenic organisms. It is also known to be helpful for wound and bone healing, healthy skin and eyes, fighting infections, stress control, toxic exposure, and repairing damaged tissue of all types.


Glutathione, the most critical antioxidant in the body, is the place where sulfur and selenium meet up to protect us from cancer. The immune system cannot function properly without it, and antioxidants such as vitamins C and E rely on it to work appropriately within the body. The glutathione cancer connection is well established. Patients with cancer, chronic severe illness, AIDS, and over 60 other diseases have reduced glutathione levels. Glutathione plays a specific role in detoxifying many well-known cancer-causing and cell-damaging substances in our environment.

Over 98,000 scientific studies and articles on glutathione are recorded in PubMed, the official U.S. Government library of medical research. Those articles reveal glutathione’s remarkable role in every cell’s protection and function in the human body and optimal health and function support. However, they also show the terrible consequences of low glutathione levels and how those lower levels accelerate the aging process.

We see a new review of research suggesting that an aggressive immune response known as a “cytokine storm” causes coronavirus cases to go from mild to severe. And we have known for a long time how to treat that. “Oral and IV glutathione, glutathione precursors (N-acetyl-cysteine) and alpha lipoic acid block NF-κB addressing “cytokine storm syndrome” and respiratory distress in patients with COVID-19 pneumonia,” Published in the Respiratory Medicine Case Reports.

IV glutathione was used in two patients and improved their dyspnea within one hour of use. Repeated use of IV glutathione was effective in further relieving respiratory symptoms.

Glutathione can be Nebulized directly into the lungs with bicarbonate for an excellent treatment when the lungs become inflamed. This can be important for ICU and emergency room doctors and patients at home suffering from the flu affecting the lungs.

Glutathione is the most important cellular defense that allows the body to prevent and fight infections and disease. Glutathione plays crucial roles in the immune response, DNA repair, and the detoxification process that neutralizes drugs, chemicals, radiation, and metabolic wastes, beats down viruses and bacteria, and reduces toxins and carcinogens that are increasingly present in our environment.

Brown’s Gas is a Mixture of Hydrogen and Oxygen

Brown’s Gas has already been endorsed for COVID-19 therapy by the Chinese Government, E.U. organizations, and U.K. Doctors. Brown’s Gas (aka HydrOxy or HHO) inhalation has been confirmed to help treat the pneumonia caused by coronavirus. Hydrogen molecules do not directly target the new coronavirus but can eliminate the inflammation caused by the virus to play an auxiliary therapeutic role. The most superior feature is anti-inflammatory and has no side effects. Anyone can use it.

Hydrogen can down-regulate the expression of oxidative-related genes and pro-inflammatory cytokine genes directly and indirectly. Oxidative stress and systemic inflammatory response syndrome have been confirmed to play critical roles in tissue and organ damage after polymicrobial sepsis injury, acute peritonitis injury, and peritonitis, which can develop into lethal sepsis with inappropriate treatment.

The team of Xu Kecheng, a Chinese cancer expert, has always recommended that cancer or severely ill patients use a 3000ml hydrogen and oxygen machine. After over two years, they obtained research data from more than 5,000 hydrogen inhalation patients who used low-flow hydrogen and oxygen machines. Comparing the patient experience with the 3000ML hydrogen and oxygen machine, the effect achieved by the large-flow hydrogen and oxygen machine is entirely unmatched by the low-flow hydrogen machines.

If you are at or near death’s door, you would wish you had this kind of medical device. If a football player gets a concussion on the playing field, this is the machine you would want on the sidelines or in the ambulance. It’s the same for a married couple sleeping together who wants to use a powerful machine all night.
