Our own Austin pharmacist, Tom Schnorr – who runs Austin Compounding Pharmacy at 3010 Bee Caves Rd. – is a supporter of nebulizing with a combination of glutathione and saline for COVID-19, heavy metals, and immune system disorders.
Unfortunately, Texas is one of 5 states that requires a prescription to purchase a nebulizer although it is possible to find nebulizers on Amazon or eBay that do NOT require prescriptions. I wonder if Canadian pharmacies have the same prescription constraints when shipping to states with prescription constraints.
If online medical suppliers can ship to the states NOT requiring prescriptions, you may have a friend living in one of them who could accept a nebulizer and then reship it to you. Tom’s nebulizer, glutathione and saline combination require a prescription for all three items.
A NEBULIZER should be in EVERY HOUSEHOLD as an important part of your human repair kit. A NEBULIZER is a SMALL piece of medical equipment used to administer liquid medication directly and quickly to the lungs. A nebulizer turns liquid medicine into a very fine mist that a person can inhale through a mouthpiece.
In the words of Dr. David Brownstein, MD, who is using nebulizers successfully on his COVID-19 patients: “Folks, I think nebulizing hydrogen peroxide and iodine should be done on every COVID patient. It should be done on every pneumonia patient. It should be done on every influenza-suffering patient. It should be done on every patient suffering from lung problems.” The next Health Assist will be dedicated to Dr. Brownstein’s supplement and nebulizing recommendations for COVID-19.
There are a number of good substances that can be nebulized: Glutathione (Tom Schnorr, Pharmacist); Lugol’s iodine and hydrogen peroxide (food grade H202 diluted to 3% in saline and then diluted again by Dr. David Brownstein, MD); Colloidal Silver (anecdotal testimonials); sodium bicarbonate (Dr. Mark Sircus, OMD).
USE of NEBULIZERS with COVID-19
Nebulizers are being used to treat COVID-19 patients by a number of integrative medical doctors. After all, the purpose of nebulizers is to help one breath better – especially in light of the COVID-19 virus which impacts the lungs and impairs the ability to breathe. In the worst cases, the virus develops into ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome), pneumonia, and likely death in the high risk population (the elderly, smokers, and those with serious health challenges called comorbidities).
PROBLEM with WAITING UNTIL you have COVID-19
The longer one waits to address the problem the worse the problem becomes. If your house catches on fire, you do NOT wait until the house is completely engulfed in flames to call the fire department.
By the time COVID-19 is finally diagnosed, it is too LATE in the game for prevention. At the first signs of catching something, attack it VIGOROUSLY with targeted anti-viral foods, supplements, and nebulizing.
Why is it important to be proactive? If one gets sick enough to be put on a respirator, the chances of dying are significant. A Connecticut critical care Doctor indicated with COVID-19, a SURVIVAL of intubated patients is a GRIM 20%. In answer to a question posed to his colleagues by a retired surgeon – who goes by the name of Skeptical Scalpel, mortality rate for COVID-19 patients who required mechanical ventilation ranged from 25% to 70%. Perhaps the best published information comes from the Intensive Care National Audit and Research Center (ICNARC) in the UK: 66% died who received advanced respiratory support defined as invasive ventilation. (Mortality rate of COVID-19 patients on ventilators, Posted by SkepticalScalpel).
The figures are NOT perfect and the target changes from day to day but the point is:
If you can do something simple like nebulizing that may PREVENT the
