Recently I was struck by a letter from someone in Asia who is observing how the Wuhan Coronavirus (2019-nCov) is playing out in his country.  A comment from a hospital spokesperson keeps going through my mind: “Go home, you are not sick enough.  Come back when you are dying.”  This is a good example of what to expect when an epidemic overruns the capacity of hospitals to handle it.  Apparently, the death rate in China is far higher than what we are hearing.

How many people in the U.S. died from the flu in 2019?  In total, the CDC estimates that up to 42.9 million people got sick during the 2018-2019 flu season, 647,000 people were hospitalized and 61,200 died (2018-2019 Flu Season Was the Longest in 10 Years, CDC Says | Time Jun 20, 2019)
People die from the regular flu but if you get the Wuhan Coronavirus, your chances of dying will be greater.  One source said the Wuhan Coronavirus is halfway between influenza and SARS in intensity.  This is a severe virus.  With flu season in the northern hemisphere in full swing, it may be difficult to determine if you have the new Coronavirus or just regular flu if you are just coming down with flu symptoms (Navigating Viral Storms and Avoiding Death, Dr. Mark Sircus, January 30, 2020).

This makes me wonder – how prepared are our citizens in such a health crisis?  Do we have enough supplies to set up an emergency treatment center in our homes?  Probably not!  Most people leave their health up to their doctors who order inadequate blood work because that is what is covered by insurance. To make matters worse, patients seldom ask for a copy or take an interest in learning the significance of their test results.  Bad idea! I order Life Extension’s Healthy Aging Panel Comprehensive and the Basic Sex Hormone Panel during their annual blood test sale beginning the last week of March until the first of June.

In a crisis, you have LOST the opportunity to get the information these tests represent.  It is best to find out your baseline health tendencies (strengths and weaknesses) BEFORE a crisis. Especially important is to know your Vitamin D status which should be between 60 and 80 to give yo significant protection.

Dr. Mark Sircus, AC, OMD, DM (P) – Natural Allopath

If Dr. Mark Sircus is not on your radar screen, he should be.  Dr. Sircus considers himself a natural allopath – NOT exactly two disciplines that one would associate.  However, Dr. Sircus maintains that in emergency situations in good ICU units, 3 major agents are used effectively in conventional medicine to save lives if doctors are on top of their game – magnesium, sodium bicarbonate, and selenium.

It is refreshing to see that conventional medicine is NOT ignorant of natural medicine.  It is just that the medical model used in America has jettisoned what is natural and opted for pharmaceutical drugs unless an emergency physician is actually brave enough to step outside the standard-of-care box to save someone’s life when everything else has failed.

Medicines (nutrients) Recommended by Dr. Sircus to Have and Use at Home

There is a short list of medicines used in ICU departments that can be used safely at home to minimize the threat of dying from the Coronavirus or other health challenges.  The Natural Allopathic Protocol is relatively simple.  One does not have to be a doctor to practice on oneself and one’s loved ones at home. One does not have to break any laws or go bankrupt practicing this approach.

In order to understand the BACKBONE of Natural Allopathic Medicine, one needs to study how magnesium chloride, sodium bicarbonate and selenium are used in ICU and emergency departments.  In hospital settings, these three medicines can be injected or administered intravenously for fast-acting effect in life threatening situations.  So can Vitamin C and Vitamin D.  

Natural Allopathic Medicine takes these and other natural substances at HIGH CONCENTRATIONS and applies them for the following:
* for life-saving situations,
* for days for acute medical situations like the flu,
* for weeks (and) months for chronic disorders, and
* for years when anti-aging is the goal.

Natural Allopathic Medicine differs from other forms of modern medicine. Probably the most similar approach is orthomolecular medicine. Two-time Nobel Prize winner and molecular biologist, Linus Pauling, Ph.D., used the term ‘orthomolecular’ “to refer to the practice of varying the concentration of substances normally present in the body to prevent and treat disease.”

Dr. Sircus: Dosages and Treatments for Coronavirus Infections

What kills most people with the Coronavirus and other viruses is acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)ARDS is a complex clinical syndrome characterized by acute inflammation, microvascular damage, and increased pulmonary vascular and epithelial permeability, frequently resulting in acute respiratory failure and death.

According to Dr. Sircus, conventional medicine is NOT looking at how natural emergency medicines like magnesium can keep the inflammation in check or how bicarbonate can be used to treat the low blood pH values which are found in acute respiratory failure.

Intravenous sodium bicarbonate should be given in sufficient amount to correct acidosis and raise the blood pH to around seven point two (7.2) if one is already in ICU. Of course it isn’t necessary to be hospitalized to start taking baking soda.  A product that Dr. Sircus likes BETTER than baking soda is pH Adust which contains sodium AND potassium bicarbonate as well as magnesium carbonate which is available on Amazon.  I use 1/2 to 1 teaspoon in water at night BEFORE bedtime.

Note:  Any form of baking soda should NOT be taken with meals – 1 hour BEFORE and 1 hour AFTER meals should be OK.  It is important NOT to dilute stomach acid needed to process food, especially protein.

Nutrient Home-Delivery Methods

Nutrients can be taken at home by the following methods:
* Capsule
* Powder
* Liquid
* Transdermal (through the skin)
* Inhalation (nebulization)
* Medicinal baths
* Suppository
I personally do not like tablets unless they are sublinguals.

Note: Unless you have a doctor in the household, you cannot give yourself  IVs (intravenous).

Considerations When Using Nutrients as Medicine

When taking something for the first time, you need to start with a minimum dose.  Yet this guidance goes out the window in emergency situations which demand higher initial dosages.

Low doses do not get clinical results! Through the years, the mistake Dr. Sircus sees repeatedly is that people under-dose.

* Someone severely ill with coronavirus or flu needs much higher dosages than used to prevent these infections.

* In the emergency room, medicines have to be safe while delivering an instant lifesaving burst of healing power.

* The idea when used at home is to constantly administer these medicinals during waking hours when suffering from the flu or the cornonavirus.

Sodium Bicarbonate AND Potassium Bicarbonate

Dr. Sircus prefers a product called pH Adjust (Amazon) to sodium bicarbonate because it contains BOTH sodium and potassium bicarbonate as well as magnesium carbonate. Objective: take enough to get urinary pH up to being more alkaline.  7 on the pH scale is neutral; above is more alkaline, below is more acid.  Most people are too acid.


Magnesium Chloride

The body should be literally flooded with magnesium. Magnesium is an essential mineral used for hundreds of biochemical reactions, making it crucial for health.


Selenium, High Doses

Taking selenium is safer than taking aspirin. Selenium will increase immune system strength and greatly reduce one’s chances of contracting or dying from cancer. Low selenium levels worsen the prognosis for cancer patients and selenium deficiency increases cancer risk in healthy persons.Critical illness with systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) is characterized by Se (selenium) depletion with high morbidity and mortality. Se status correlates well with clinical outcome in SIRS and may be useful as an early predictor of survival (Selenium
Supplementation in the Critically Ill
,, Nutr Clin Pract. 2012                     Feb;27(1):21-33. doi: 10.1177/0884533611434116).


Iodine, High Doses      

The practice of iodine medicine is simple and safe. Iodine is by far the best  antibiotic, antiviral and antiseptic of all time.



Sulfur disinfects blood, helps the body to resist bacteria, and protects the plasma cells. It assists in oxidation processes necessary in the body and protects against the harmful effects of radiation and pollution.



Glutathione is considered to be the most powerful, most versatile and most important of the body’s self-generated antioxidants that are found in almost all living cells. Glutathione precursors: N-Acetyl-Cysteine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Melatonin. Straight glutathione is NOT absorbed well.
Reduced-glutathione is OK.
Vitamin C, High Dose
Insufficient vitamin C intake is a global problem that can be addressed with proper nutrition and supplementation. With even modest amounts of supplemental vitamin C, deaths will decrease. In a study, modest amounts of supplemental vitamin C (200 mg of vitamin C per day) resulted in an 80% decrease in deaths among severely ill, hospitalized respiratory disease patients.  (Hunt C. The clinical effects of vitamin C supplementation in elderly hospitalized patients with an acute respiratory infection. Int J Vit Nut Res 1994;64:212-19.  Vitamin Cs anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and immune enhancing effects have been known for decades.

China is conducting a clinical trial of 24,000 mg/day of intravenous vitamin C to treat patients with Coronavirus and severe respiratory complications. In this clinical trial, participants will receive IV vitamin C for seven days straight at Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University. Since the trial announcement, 50 tons of vitamin C has been sent to China to combat the Coronavirus, according to Orthomolecular News Service.

Vitamin D, High Doses

An exhaustive epidemiological study of vitamin D and the flu published in Norway, suggests vitamin D may be the major controlling factor in influenza epidemics and even most pandemics. Dr. Asta Juzeniene and Dr. Johan Moan used data from all over the world, from the last 110 years, to show that influenza death rates go up as vitamin D producing UV light goes down. Furthermore the differences were staggering, with influenza death rates 20 to 600 times higher during months when vitamin D cannot be made in the skin.

Both Vitamins C and D can also be taken at very high dosages as they sometimes are given in the best ICU treatment centers.

Dr. Sircus Protocol: Treatments and Products

In Dr. Sircus Protocol: Treatment and Products, he goes more in depth because this protocol can be used against cancer, the ultimate immune system challenge.

The protocol’s top ten to fifteen items can all be used in similar ways. Each substance or medical process applies concentrated nutrition that nurtures the cells by helping them to dump toxins.  Cells that are nurtured by feeding them what they need tend to respond positively. They clean themselves as they fire up the mitochondria for increased oxygen respiration.

The top three nutrients the body needs are gases: oxygen, hydrogen and carbon dioxide. Water combines two of these most important substances – hydrogen and oxygen. The idea is to get command of these three gases as a starting step and then add magnesium, iodine, selenium and both sodium and potassium bicarbonate.

Hydrogen belongs first on all protocol lists.  Doctors and everyone else need to understand that we flood the body with hydrogen, oxygen and carbon dioxide as a first course of action. Conditions will improve fast if hydrogen and oxygen are fed continuously. Emergency room doctors, ambulance paramedics and intensive care doctors will be the first to understand the real importance of hydrogen.

Those whose needs are the greatest will benefit most from hydrogen because it penetrates the mitochondria, DNA and to every extremity in the body. Accepted in Japan and China, the pure fuel that sends rockets into space has been found to be exceedingly useful in the world of medicine.

The 3 primary gases are nutritional in nature.  Hydrogen allows the body to function and breathe under stress.  And it allows for quicker healing and recovery than when oxygen alone is used.  Pure oxygen is highly toxic and that is why oxygen bottles have at least 5 percent carbon dioxide added.  Oxygen is widely administered and often saves lives but it does not do the healing work that hydrogen does.  The three primary gases can be applied in all dire medical situations.

For a fuller protocol all we have to do is add sulphur, magnesium, iodine, selenium, potassium, bicarbonates and sodium.

Three Levels of Understanding

Dr. Sircus offers the public three levels of understanding and practice:
1) The first level includes the medicinal supplements – many of which are used in hospitals.
2) The second level includes medical devices that incorporate the best medical technology.
3) The third level includes deeper levels of diagnosis and treatment that involve the mind/body/spiritual connection.

You will need to Google the title to access the videos on how to use the supplements and links for the cost of each item.


By following through on Dr. Sircus recommendations for creating a home-based intensive care center (and learning how to use nutrients as medicine), one will be in a better position to weather major unforeseen health challenges such as the Wuhan Coronavirus.

It should be an eye opener – in view of what is happening mainly in China, that a good well-stocked home-based intensive care center could have saved many people who were turned away from severely overcrowded hospitals that just couldn’t handle any more cases.
