Why Do We Not have HEPA filters or Corsi-Rosenthal Boxes in every US Classroom, COVID ward, home and Business?

SARS CoV-2 virus is spread by aerosols. These aerosols contain many viruses carried in a tiny amount of liquid from a person’s mouth and nose as they breath, talk, sing, or yell. Yelling, singing, coughing, sneezing produce more aerosol than breathing. Risk of transmission in a room depends on duration of exposure (time in the […]

Antibiotic Resistant Infections: A growing threat

There are several pathways converging on Anti-Microbial Resistance. Emerging resistant strains include sexually transmitted infections (gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia), MRSA, tuberculosis, several bacteria that cause pneumonia, urinary tract infections and food poisoning. Viral infections are also demonstrating antibiotic resistance including HIV (10% of cases in the majority of monitored countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America). […]

3 Respiratory Viruses Threaten World Health this winter

Winter approaches with a perfect storm of 3 respiratory viruses, increased indoor activity, dry spaces, and holiday gatherings. The 3 viruses already filling many hospitals (including children’s hospitals) include RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus), Influenza, and SARS-CoV-2. Respiratory viruses spread by aerosol typically enter through the nose and throat. Dry nasal and oral-pharyngeal mucosa (the lining […]

The argument for cattle grazing and meat consumption: COP27

The 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference or Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC, more commonly referred to as COP27, is the 27th United Nations Climate Change conference and is being held from 6 November until 18 November 2022 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. The summit presented an opportunity for nutritionist and healthy food advocate Diana Rogers to offer an […]

Paxlovid is a winner, but lifestyle changes are essential to mitigate Covid risk.

This discussion was originally posted before PAXLOVID WAS AVAILABLE. The title was originally Lifestyle More Effective than Drugs. But now we have Paxlovid. Paxlovid is very effective in reducing morbidity and mortality associated with Covid-19 infection but also appears to reduce risk of Long Covid. Standard dosing: PAXLOVID two 150-mg tablets of nirmatrelvir, one 100-mg […]

Chronic Pain: Opiate use can make it worse

For several years a dysfunctional response to opiate prescription medications for chronic pain has been discussed in the medical literature. This dysfunctional response paradoxically makes pain worse! Various animal models have demonstrated “hyperalgesia” (increased pain response to a painful stimulus) in rodents given opiate medications for pain. A process called “central sensitization” occurs in which […]

COVID-19, Lifestyle interventions more effective than most drugs. (But Paxlovid is a winner)

This discussion was originally posted before PAXLOVID WAS AVAILABLE. Paxlovid is very effective in reducing morbidity and mortality associated with Covid-19 infection. Standard dosing: PAXLOVID two 150-mg tablets of nirmatrelvir, one 100-mg tablet of ritonavir twice daily for 5 days. Dose adjustments are necessary for certain medical conditions and there are many drug interactions that should […]


My good friend Dr. Deborah Gordon recently sent me a terrific article on an Integrative Medicine Approach to Covid-19. It confirmed much of what I have discussed about COVID-19 and provides 383 scientific references (many of which were cited in my previous posts). Thank you Dr. Deborah! In my last post I promised to write about glutathione and […]

ZINC, ionophores, supplements and COVID-19

ZINC is an essential mineral present in many foods. It is also available as a dietary supplement. Zinc in combination with a zinc ionophore (which helps zinc enter human cells) can inhibit viral replication in human cells. It does this by blocking RNA POLYMERASE, which is necessary for replication of the CORONA VIRUS. Zinc is […]


  To slow the spread, focus on fresh air As evidence has accumulated over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, scientific understanding about the virus has changed: the majority of transmissions occur as a result of infected people spewing large droplets and small particles called aerosols when they cough, talk or breathe. Surface transmission, although possible, […]
