For instance, dozens of recent studies have shown taking Vitamin D is an easy way to fight COVID-19 and your doctor can request a blood test to check your overall vitamin levels, Dr. Peter Osborne with Origins Nutrition Center in Sugar Land, Texas, told FOX 26 of Houston.
Additional studies also revealed nine out of 10 COVID-19 deaths could have been prevented if people had adequate Vitamin D levels, the FOX 26 report said.

    I have been an advocate of Zinc and D for years as a preventative for all virus infections. In the 15 years or so I have taken it, I have only been sick twice, neither time in any severe way. I have also heard many doctors saying the same thing, and that if you do, you will be much, much less likely to get it. Since it has worked for the flu for 15 years, I am pretty sure they are on the right path. My wife laughed at me, and got the "crud" every year, miserably so. She started 5 years ago and suddenly realized she has not been sick either since. This goes along with the fact hundreds of doctors were censured for saying hydroxychloriqun didin't work, but still proscribed it, and pharmacy's would not fill their prescriptions by AMA order. Now AMA backed off and actually endorsed it as a treatment very quietly in late October. Not a word in the lamestream about it...

      Which is why I am so frustrated with the censorship of doctors trying to tell people how to help themselves esp with a treatment with no side effects that can save them

      Kudos, Same Here.
      I was chronically low on Vitamin D when measured, and it is tied to inflammation (imagine that, as we understand how bad inflammation is with Covid).

      So, I supplement heavily with Vitamin D3... My numbers are in the top quartile... And guess who rarely gets sick, and it's only when I run myself down working until 4-5am for a few days... But I step up my dosage, and take a bunch (3+ Grams) of Vitamin C, and get some sleep. Right as rain by morning.

      EVERYONE I talk to, I tell them to take Vitamin D3.

      Also, if you get bloodwork done. It takes at about 60 days (better to do a regimen for 90 days) to determine if you need to step up or down!
      So make smaller changes as you zoom in, and don't be overly worried about getting too much vitamin D in todays world.

      Funny how HCQ works again, now that a vaccine is available. Maybe they realize they can vaccinate us, and don't need to have the high death tolls to keep scaring us into submission!

    Saw my wife had on Dr. Oz where he was having a pretty serious presentation on this and zinc. I've been following a regimen that includes this for years. In my family of four we haven't had an illness in about 13 years. My 10-year old has never been sick, ever. And both my kids go to packed classrooms. My daughter is the only kid in her old school to get the award for perfect attendance...and she got it consecutive years. After a few years of this I actually had other parents ask what we were doing. That was interesting. For starters...don't believe what others widely believe about health. But...I didn't say that.

    I take a mix of quercetin (which has the same antiviral mechanism as a couple of the prescription meds), zinc, vitamin D3, vitamin C. I also take vitamin B12 and oil of oregano (which has antiviral properties). I take other supplements that reinforce the immune system and strengthen the vascular pathways.

    I don't know if all those supplements have any effect, but I haven't had a communicable disease in a long time. I don't catch colds or the flu, and seem to have an iron constitution. I'm over 75 and seem to be in more robust condition than many around me that are a lot younger, so I'm going to stick with the supplement regimen.

    So much confusion about the Chinese Virus. What works? What to avoid (crowds, Church - but not big box stores). Wear a mask, what kind of mask? Told for years that excessive washing of the hands kills off a germs/bacteria that protects us from diseases. (ate dirt, drank from a hose, shared a coke with the whole gang.) D & Zinc don't help, yes they do!?!? Hydroxychloroquine will absolutely not help - Hey wait it does work. Number tested today that have or may have the virus, number that died today from virus were there other factors, COPD, High Blood pressure that the virus kicked into high gear. Percentages based on what? Going out today to pick up some Zinc (already use D) at a big box crowded store!

    I have taken D Complex, Zinc, C, B (happy vitamin) Omega3 for years. Not cheap “dime store” products. B is rather inexpensive and anyone living north of the “Atlanta” latitude should add a little to their diet. D helps most every bodily system perform better.

    I did not trust fauci from day one, knew the connection to the China lab, also CDC and NIH, all part of it. We as seniors have always taken numerous vitamins, incl. D and zinc, so I really was not too panicked. I dept waiting for "experts" to tell people what they needed, not to wait until they needed a to be on a ventl! Never happened. They did not wan of the over 30 BMI risk factor. Did not tell them to get lots of fresh air and sun. Did not even tell them to take the pneumonia vaccine. No, they wanted this to be bad, for people to die, and for them to conrorl us all. I do not trust them or their RNA vaccine either.
