How tuning up your immune system can help with COVID

Posted on September 30, 2020 by Dr. Noel R. Williams

Humans... tonight’s video post is going to focus on innate immune function data. New reports on understanding the pathophysiology of innate immunity responses to COVID are becoming clearer!

As it turns out several things are or aren’t happening. Key TYPE 1 INTERFERONS are necessary to fight off COVID successfully. Low Type 1 interferons equal poor performance against COVID19....escalating inflammation and severe illness. Equally important is the spontaneous development of auto-antibodies to Interferons in some COVID pts.

There is much to talk about. Solutions to these issue all reside in augmenting immune function by appropriate nutrition. The key element at play continues to be ZINC. 9 months later and the same theme continues.

Zinc levels correlate with better immune function. I’m calling it here... right now....definitely.

Zinc is the key natural element to augment immune function, damage RNA viral particles, and protect us from viral infections.

The RDA for men is 11mg daily and for women is 9 mg daily.

I recommend Zinc supplementation by weight and age. In an effort to simplify it let’s go with the following:

Adults

Over 150lbs:

50 mg daily with food x 2 months then just Monday-Friday only.

Less than 150lbs but more than 100lbs or pregnant:

30 mg daily with food x 2 months then Monday through Friday only.

Less than 100lbs:

15 mg daily with food.

Treatment options for overactive bladder in women

Posted on September 12, 2020 by Dr. Ben Barenberg

Overactive Bladder (Urinary Urgency/Frequency Syndrome):
With normal bladder function, when you feel your bladder is full you can control when you urinate by contracting a particular muscle in the bladder. In the case of an overactive bladder, the muscles receive the wrong nerve messages and contract unexpectedly, causing you to feel like you have to urinate right away or, in some cases, causing you to leak urine. Women who suffer from overactive bladder may experience voiding frequency >8 times a day, voiding frequency >2 times a night, sensation of incomplete bladder emptying, strong urge to urinate, and may suffer urinary leakage. There are many risk factors for overactive bladder including childbirth, pelvic surgery, neurologic diseases, aging, and certain medications. The workup for overactive bladder includes a complete medical history. Your doctor may require you to fill out a bladder diary. Most workups include an assessment for bladder infection, assessment for appropriate bladder emptying, and potentially complex bladder testing known as urodynamics. Treatments for overactive bladder include but are not limited to medications, pelvic floor therapy, Mona Lisa Touch Laser Therapy, Interstim bladder pacemaker, and botox.

Preventative steps during the pandemic.

Posted on August 18, 2020

Your best prevention strategies are nutritional and lifestyle oriented:

Stop smoking

Be active

Lose weight

Masks

Sanitizer

Social Distancing

Nasal irrigation nightly with distilled water

Supplementation with macronutrients and vitamins can significantly promote healthy immune function. The following is a core list of what to consider. There are many more add ons such as Tumeric, Omega 3 fish oil, higher amounts of vitamin C. However simplicity is important.

Core daily maintenance for ADULTS during this time is as follows:

Covid-19 Supplements

Zinc Gluconate or Zinc Picolinate

ALWAYS TAKE WITH FOOD.... balanced diet with nuts, veggies, fruit, etc to supply copper.

ADULTS
50 mg daily if over 125lbs

30 mg daily if between 100-125lbs

15 mg daily if less than 100lbs

10 mg daily for children

ONCE A PERSON HAS BEEN ON ZINC FOR 2-3 months it is ok to cut back to Monday-Friday and skip the weekends.

MELATONIN
1-2 mg nightly

VITAMIN D
5000 units daily with a meal or omega 3 fish oil.

MULTIVITAMIN
daily

Elderberry
250 mg 2-3 x a day.

AVOID
Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, or similar prescription medications if flu like symptoms develop.

May take Tylenol or acetaminophen

Everyone over 100 pounds and older than 25 yrs of age regardless of exposure should be taking the zinc & melatonin. If a person starts to have any cold or flu type symptoms including but not exclusively fever, cough, sore throat, or respiratory symptoms: increase zinc (30-50 mg capsules) to 1/hour for 4 doses over 4-8 hours (120-200mg total WITH FOOD) then skip the zinc for 3 days. Please remember Zinc can cause nausea and/or vomiting. Always spread the doses and take with a meal.

Children

Zinc 10 mg daily
Kids multivitamin

Most pediatric chewable vitamins contain 10 mg of Zinc.

Children already have lots of melatonin and are unlikely to get a significant infection. So add back Melatonin is unnecessary.
