Physicians who diagnose cases of COVID-19 coronavirus illness get a quick sense of whether the patient is on track to develop the deadly form of coronavirus pneumonia. The most common symptoms are fever, dry cough, shortness of breath and flu-like symptoms.
But modern medicine is so steeped in its pharmacy of prescription drugs, with its blinders toward nutritional medicine, that it can’t see the obvious evidences of a trace mineral deficiency that results in the same signs and symptoms produced by COVID-19 coronavirus.
An emergency room physician in New Orleans shares an account of his experience with this dreaded pathogenic virus. He writes: “You can literally watch it happen in a matter of hours.” Some 70-90% of hospitalized patients who have to be placed on a ventilator die.
As I read through this doctor’s account of how he goes about making a quick assessment of the severity of the patient’s lung disease, all of its common signs and symptoms I quickly realized are signs of zinc deficiency. A chart provided below makes the comparison. All 18 coronavirus symptoms and signs point to zinc deficiency.
inc inhibits coronavirus RNA polymerase enzyme activity, the very methodology by which coronavirus infection is confirmed in the laboratory.
The published medical literature indicates zinc supplementation “seems beneficial” for diarrhea, tuberculosis (a lung infection), acute lower respiratory tract infection.
Dr. James Robb, a pathologist who performed early experiments with coronaviruses back in the 1970s, claims that zinc lozenges are the “silver bullet against coronavirus.”
Zinc is required to maintain thymus gland function to produce life-long antibodies from T-memory cells.
Between 15-30 milligrams of zinc in dietary supplements can be safely consumed by adults. Zinc oxide is poorly absorbed. Other forms (acetate, gluconate, acetate, picolinate) are preferred.
