Iodine Mouthwash Reduces Covid: Could suggesting Iodine mouthwash and using vitamin C bring on the end of the pandemic? In a previous post we detailed The Importance of Iodine. New research is showing that Iodine based mouthwash reduces COVID below detectable levels.
The Coronavirus disease in 2019 (COVID-19), also referred to as the novel ‘CoV19 (nCov19)’ is caused by a new coronavirus strain similar to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV-2). SARS-CoV-2 spreads via respiratory droplets, saliva, or direct contact. Therefore it is important to control the viral load in the saliva and respiratory secretions. One of the most simple and cost-effective measures that can be adopted by the public and healthcare professionals to prevent cross-contamination and community transmission, is the implementation of effective oral and throat hygiene. Recent evidence has confirmed that 0.5% povidone iodine (PVP-I) mouthrinse/gargle for 30 s can reduce SARS-CoV-2 virus infectivity to below detectable levels.https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33747261/
In addition to reducing the COVID virus below detectable levels, it also reduces the number of harmful bacteria colonies in the mouth and, surprisingly, lowers the LDL cholesterol; people who suffer from gum disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from heart disease. Yes – you heard that right – an iodine based mouthwash can improve heart health. src
Let’s say we combined the power of iodine based mouthwash, the power of vitamin C, and the protective ability of CBD/CBG tinctures:
An interdisciplinary team of researchers from the University of Chicago has found evidence that Cannabidiol, or CBD, a product of the cannabis plant, can inhibit infection by the COVID-19 virus in human cells and in mice.https://ccts.uic.edu/news-stories/new-research-suggests-high-purity-cbd-may-help-block-covid-19-virus-from-replicating/
Masks vs Iodine, Vitamin C, Cannabis
If we are able to mobilize a country to wear masks, take vaccines, and shut down an entire economy while small businesses and individuals suffer – we can inform people of what could actually make them healthier.
Could we have health and government officials go on TV and inform everyone that the same places that carry masks could carry Iodine mouthwash, Vitamin C tablets, and CBD/CBG tinctures? Yes, absolutely we could.
Poverty and Malnutrition
Those who are poverty stricken are especially vulnerable to disease due to malnutrition, including a lack of absorbed acid. Vitamin C is one of the cheapest nutrients available – this vitamin could be the difference between life and death for those who are gravely ill.
Total cost of iodine mouthwash and vitamin C tablets: $15. How much have we already as a collective spent on masks?
Total cost of a high purity CBG/CBD tincture supplement: $35. This pandemic has gone on for years at this point – how much money and time have we lost by giving the wrong answer repeatedly?
Thanks to the internet, and a future not too far away, everyone will be their own health provider.
