  1. Can Supplements Help Combat COVID-19? (p-3) 1) Lapacho: (Pau D' Arco) pau d'arco extract contains a potent antioxidant known as quercetin and is shown to be rich in naphthoquinones, plant-based compounds that exert antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal effects. 2) Cytokine Suppress: Mung Bean Extract (with EGCG) "Used to modulate immune system response. Mung bean has shown to be a therapeutic agent capable of inhibiting HMGB1 (cytokines) release and may hold potential for the treatment of lethal systemic inflammatory diseases" Has been successfully used in laboratory studies to turn off the HMGB1 switch that triggers the catastrophic and often fatal cytokine dump that causes sepsis and organ failure in the human body. 3) DGL (Licorice Root Extract) "Centuries ago, licorice root was used in Greece, China, and Egypt for stomach inflammation and upper respiratory problems. Today, people use licorice root as a therapeutic for bacterial and viral infections" NIH https://www.hhs.gov/
  2. New units from dealers are supposed to come with both. You can download the manual online.
  3. Relatively Stable SARS-CoV-2 Genome Is Good News for a Vaccine: For some viruses like the flu, mutative changes affect how the virus behaves — necessitating a new vaccine every year. The small number of genetic differences between the original strain of the novel coronavirus from Wuhan and those currently circulating in the US population indicates that a vaccine may likely offer lasting immunity. The coronavirus mutates more slowly than the flu — which means a vaccine will likely be effective long-term much like a measles vaccine. Let's hope . . .
  4. ivigo: The top two photographs are of magnetite that were found with a vlf metal detector. They all meet the physical characteristics that you describe in your post. Mineral iron that (ordinarily) does not rust. The bottom photo was identified and copied from an internet site.
  5. "This rock is almost pure iron and no any rust. This is a very strange thing" ivigo: The answer may be found in a Physics forum. Your link states: "if there is not enough oxygen in the water to finalize the oxidation, then (magnetite - (Fe3O4)) forms, instead of the more common Fe2O3 rust. In this case F3O4 is very useful. It's crystal habits makes iron inert against corrosion, the black layer is almost like a passivization. This black layer is so stable not even Microbiologically Induced Corrosion – MIC has a chance to harm iron or steel surface" (paraphrased) THE FINER DETAILS OF RUST: PHYS.ORG Magnetite is an oxide of iron. It is not a component of ordinary rust. The properties of magnetite are governed by missing iron atoms in the sub-surface layer. "It turns out that the surface of Fe3O4 is not Fe3O4 at all, but rather Fe11O16" . A rust resistant - protective layer. The behavior of iron oxide is governed by missing iron atoms in the atomic layer.
  6. Hey Max, Did you ever run across Gary Cameron (Gold Bar Mining Co.) in Idaho City? He and wife Twila had the prospecting and gold jewelry shop on Montgomery street. They would close the shop each year in late fall and head down to the Kingman area to hunt gold. He used a Minelab SD and she had an ML 1800XT. On one occasion, they were hunting in a wash below a mine slope drainage with him on top of the bank, swinging a large coil, and she was down in the wash working the walls. She got a good signal pretty high up, and after digging several inches into the wall standing on her toes, she grabbed what felt like a one ounce nugget, but it wouldn't budge. About 45 minutes later, she had dug around it and pulled out a 9" X 4" inch gold/quartz specimen that was flat and square at the bottom. It was pure white quartz, shot through with several ounces of gold that had a "hood ornament" at the top in the shape of an Eagle with outspread wings, that was solid gold. They had it on display when I came through Idaho in 2002. It was a beautiful, one of a kind specimen that stood up like a trophy in the jewelry case. Love your stories. Keep 'em coming! Mac
  7. "Really hope we get the pass on that stuff here" Hey homefire, Don't know if you saw this post. The man who got sick was in the hospital last week. "A couple of weeks ago, an acquaintance friend of mine who lives near Deming, NM recently caught Tularemia (Rabbit Fever) after being exposed to dead jack rabbits. He's recovering but had a rough time of it and still is not 100%"
  8. Based upon his continued argument I think he may be right. And it tends to support the theory that it's not a terrestrial rock. It's from Greece . . .
  9. Second arrest in two years for marijuana smuggler Friday, April 3rd, 2020 "U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested Sierra-Garcia, 20, leading a group of marijuana smugglers for the second time in two years Sunday, just a few miles from where he was arrested a little more than a year ago for the same crime. His arrest last Sunday was typical of the “cat-and-mouse” scenario agents play out against smugglers in the state’s rugged Bootheel. Sierra-Garcia was arrested by Border Patrol agents after a surveillance system spotted a group of five people carrying large objects on their backs and heading north near N.M. 9. Border Patrol agents swept in with a K-9 unit, which led them to four burlap bundles containing about 50 pounds of marijuana each. In January 2019, according to court records, he and three other men were arrested by Border Patrol agents about eight miles south of Playas with 135 pounds of marijuana after being spotted by a National Guard helicopter. The men, all in the country illegally, readily admitted they were carrying the marijuana. Sierra-Garcia had been deported in 2018 after being stopped by Border Patrol agents in Hidalgo County after crossing the border illegally. He had been in the county about a week before he was arrested and apparently knew the route the marijuana backpackers were expected to take. It can take backpackers a full day or more to get the marijuana they carry to Rodeo, and even longer if they have to reach I-10. If they are successful, they are met by other smugglers, already in the United States, who will transport the marijuana and the backpackers to the Tucson area. In the 2019 case, Sierra-Garcia and the backpackers pleaded guilty. The backpackers received sentences of around three months each and were then deported. As the guide for the group, Sierra-Garcia was sentenced to five months but deported before completing his sentence . . ."
  10. Between RHDV- 2 and Tularemia, with it's airborne transmission capability, it might be wise to just avoid hunting rabbits for awhile . . .

  13. On the subject of Rabbits: A couple of weeks ago, an acquaintance friend of mine who lives near Deming, NM recently caught Tularemia (Rabbit Fever) after being exposed to dead jack rabbits. He's recovering but had a rough time of it and still is not 100%. Caution and social distancing around dead animals in the wild is highly recommended. MAYO CLINIC: "Tularemia doesn't occur naturally in humans and isn't known to pass from person to person. However, tularemia occurs worldwide, especially in rural areas, because many mammals, birds and insects are infected with F. tularensis. The organism can live for weeks in soil, water and dead animals. Unlike some infectious diseases that spread from animals to people through a single route, tularemia has several modes of transmission. How you get the disease usually determines the type and severity of symptoms. In general, you can get tularemia through: Insect bites. Although a number of insects carry tularemia, ticks and deer flies are most likely to transmit the disease to humans. Tick bites cause a large percentage of cases of ulceroglandular tularemia. Exposure to sick or dead animals. Ulceroglandular tularemia can also result from handling or being bitten by an infected animal, most often a rabbit or hare. Bacteria enter the skin through small cuts and abrasions or a bite, and an ulcer forms at the wound site. The ocular form of tularemia can occur when you rub your eyes after touching an infected animal. Airborne bacteria. Bacteria in the soil can become airborne during gardening, construction or other activities that disturb the earth. Inhaling the bacteria can lead to pneumonic tularemia. Laboratory workers who work with tularemia also are at risk of airborne infection. Contaminated food or water. Although uncommon, it's possible to get tularemia from eating undercooked meat of an infected animal or drinking contaminated water. The signs include vomiting, diarrhea and other digestive problems (oropharyngeal tularemia). Heat kills F. tularensis, so cook meat to the right temperature — a minimum of 165 F (73.8 C) for ground meat and game meat — to make it safe to eat"

  15. Can Supplements Help Combat COVID-19? (con't) Pelargonium sidoides Also known as Umckaloabo among other names, pelargonium sidoides is commonly taken by mouth for upper respiratory infections including bronchitis, sinusitis, sore throat, tonsillitis, and the common cold. Taking a specific extract of pelargonium sidoides seems to help reduce symptoms and clear up the common cold after 10 days of treatment. It also lessens symptoms of bronchitis in adults within 48 hours of feeling sick. Propolis Propolis, a resin-like material from the buds of poplar and cone-bearing trees, is used for boosting the immune system, and as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. Some evidence suggests that propolis might help prevent or reduce the duration of common colds and other upper respiratory tract infections. Acai berry Acai berry is such a potent antioxidant and stimulator of the immune system, researchers are studying it as a potential treatment for all kinds of conditions, and it's often touted as a supporting of general health and immune function. Curcumin Curcumin is derived from the Curcuma longa plant, commonly known as turmeric. Curcumin is used for its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic activity. Curcumin can help fight inflammation and aid the body’s immune response, as found by a study published in Molecules.

  18. Can Supplements Help Combat COVID-19? Andrographis Paniculata: Andrographis contains bitter constituents that are believed to have immune-stimulating and anti-inflammatory actions. Andrographis contains andrographolides that have demonstrated immune-enhancing qualities in preliminary studies. Andrographis supports the immune system and protects against microbes. Andrographis is a supplement used primarily for its immunostimulating properties. Multiple studies have demonstrated its ability to not only reduce the duration of upper respiratory infections but also significantly reduce the severity of symptoms. The properties of andrographis are due to its ability to increase lymphocyte production. Of note with the spread of COVID-19, a recent publication screened compounds for their ability to inhibit key enzymes of the coronavirus. From the study, it was determined that andrographis and its derivatives were able to inhibit several key infectious enzymes of COVID-19, making it an ideal candidate to develop drugs to treat COVID-19. Zinc: Zinc’s fame is primarily due to its ability to regulate the immune system and its innate antimicrobial activity. White blood cells, called lymphocytes, are the body’s main defense against viral infections. Zinc supplementation has been shown to increase white blood cell counts in zinc-deficient patients but also increases the immune response in healthy patients. Additionally, zinc has an intrinsic antiviral activity that extends to the corona family of viruses. In vitro (cell) studies have shown that zinc inhibits corona viral replication by blocking a key viral enzyme utilized for replication in host cells, RNA polymerase.

  19. I like the combination shown above, which seems to have many of the supplemental properties of a multi-vitamin and exceeds MDRs on some supplements. I have been advised by more than one MD, that 1,000 mg of Vitamin C daily will usually prevent urinary tract/bladder infections and has other health benefits as well.
  20. From what I've observed during the various medical updates and my own research is, yes definitely, a healthy immune system is paramount to having a first line defense against the virus. Moreover, the key factor, in terms of a vitamin or mineral supplement which might help stave off an infection would be a steady intake of Zinc, which allegedly interferes with the virus's ability to attach itself to cells within the human body. An increased intake of Vitamin C is also allegedly helpful. A safe dosage of Zinc, in studies I have seen, was 150 mg daily. Also recommended was Zinc and Vitamin C lozenges to suck on, in addition to Zinc supplements.
  21. Initially, I was under the impression that the 'cytokine' storm/dump was what led to a pneumonia infection which could possibly be stopped by antibiotics. However, what I am now inferring, after considerably more information from health care professionals; that theory does not appear to be the case. What seems to happen, (my interpretation), is that the body's immune system produces such a flood of white blood cells to attack the virus, the effect is that an overpowering flood of liquid mucus"cytokine" substance ends up smothering and destroying healthy lung tissue as well, in an attempt to defeat the virus.
  22. Well thought out and executed. Exemplifies the 5 P Doctrine. (Prior planning prevents poor performance)
  23. A lot of innovative and creative protective masks are being used out there, but in case anyone was wondering . . . I can reliably report that regular strength Pantie Hose will not stop droplets from seeping through. (Although there is a brand called "Sheertex" tights that does show promise)
