Anti-Viral Nasal Spray May Prevent COVID-19 Infection

September 30, 2020

We wear masks to protect others from our exhaled droplets. These droplets may contain virus. It is a considerate gesture and quite helpful. But when the moisture of the droplet evaporates (relatively soon after being exhaled) the viral particles remain suspended in the air that we breathe and they are MUCH smaller than the holes in our masks. Some virus will get through as the masks are not sufficient protection for the wearer. What can we do to protect ourselves?

Researchers at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine found that the Covid-19 virus first attaches to the nasal passage ways and begins its replication there…in your nose. The particles are then shed from the colonies in your nose and are inhaled (aspirated) into your lungs where it proliferates and damages your body. “If the nose is the dominant initial site from which lung infections are seeded, then the widespread use of masks to protect the nasal passages, as well as any therapeutic strategies that reduce virus in the nose, such as nasal irrigation or antiviral nasal sprays, could be beneficial,” said Dr. Richard Boucher, a distinguished professor of medicine and the director of the Marsico Lung Institute and the UNC School of Medicine. In fact, the authors of the study proclaimed that the nose is the dominant site as it has more of the surface receptors (ACE2) to which the Covid-19 virus adheres. Understanding this progression is actually quite important. Knowing that the initial and dominant stage of the infection occurs in the nose makes it clear that an antiviral nasal spray could STOP the replication before it gets going.

Because of what they have learned in this landmark study, researchers at the UNC School of Medicine have endorsed the benefit of an antiviral nasal spray or nasal flushing in stopping Covid-19 infections. If only they had one…

Our Sinus Relief product works as an antiviral nasal spray. Any Enhanced Aqueous Silver Colloid (EASC) will do. By using this spray regularly throughout the day to inhibit the replication of any virus that may have been inhaled, you can protect yourself from developing a further infection. That alone is huge! Moreover, one could use this EASC in a neti-pot (Super Neti Juice) in the evenings to further the inhibition of replication in hard-to-reach passages of the sinuses.

But let’s take this a step further as well. At the end of each day, you can put 3 ml of an EASC such as Respiratory Relief, into a nebulizer and breathe it deep into your lungs through your nose and mouth. This will inhibit replication of any virus that has been aspirated into your lungs, mouth or is hiding in your sinuses. The researchers determined that the receptors (ACE2) to which the virus adheres, are far more abundant in the nasal passageways than in lower respiratory tissues. This speaks highly to the use of nebulized EASC as there will be a lower density of virus to inhibit in the lungs. The respiratory use of silver colloids is not new. It was extensively tested against M. tuberculosis and MAC (mycobacterium avium complex) nearly 15 years ago by Klearsen Corporation. Laboratory testing was done in the mycobacterium laboratory of National Jewish Hospital in Denver Colorado and found to be extraordinarily effective. The efficacy and lack of side effects was far superior to any of the standard antibiotics. It was even patented (Pat. No. 6,749,597 and 6,454,754). Breathing the nebulized EASC through your nose and mouth allows you to protect another pathway that the researchers identified. It was noted during the study that virus can be aspirated from the mouth as well into the lungs.

Of course, if you were to let the infection get too far before recognizing it, you might develop a sore throat. At that point, using the nebulizer every hour and spraying your throat with an EASC such as Throat Relief every 10 minutes will be necessary to end the viral infection and help your body return to health. I have personally used these techniques and monitored other infected individuals as they used them. All recoveries from the infection were in 1 to 2 days. The lingering tiredness lasted 5 to 7 days.

I often wish that the world knew how to use silver colloids appropriately. Drinking a teaspoon won’t help. It will get systemically distributed throughout your entire body and the tissue density of silver in the areas where it is needed will be far too low to be of any antimicrobial value. Laboratory testing from 2005 has demonstrated that the number of silver particles per microbe is critical. Too few particles and you don’t inhibit replication. That is why you must put it ON the germs. Coating the infected tissues directly and repeatedly is the key to making any EASC effective. Additionally, brand-comparison testing demonstrated that some commercial types of colloids are not even very good (compounded 250 or 500 ppm colloids are lousy). I prefer a pure un-compounded silver colloid of 30 to 45 ppm. Colloids must be re-applied regularly to work well. The more you spray them, the better they work. You can safely do this all day long for weeks. But if you do it “once-in-a-while”…don’t expect results.

While it is true that the virus can enter your body through your eyes and mouth, these paths are not as productive as they do not contain the surface receptors to support replication. These invaders can be handled by your immune system as they planktonically drift through the body looking for an attachment site; while you attack the main colonization in your nose.

Following this protocol every day is not necessary. When you have been out in public, spray during the day and nebulize before bed. If you have come in contact with someone who is infected, do this for a couple of days. If you work in a hospital or in an environment with numerous infected patients, then by-all-means…do this daily. By using these techniques, you can protect yourself from infection and hasten the return to health if you are already infirm.

Given how safe and effective this antimicrobial is (no one has EVER died or been injured from using a silver colloid), it’s a wonder why we haven’t seen it advocated under an “emergency use authorization”. But then…that’s the politics of medicine. If our FDA director had some experience in virology, respiratory infection or public health, he would end the pandemic with these techniques.
