How to boost your immune system

Before we continue, I want to make it clear; we are not advocating or stating that you should take any of these supplements listed below. We are providing data for you to analyse as we always do; our stance will forever remain the same. We don’t tell people what to do, we provide data, and then you decide how you are going to use that data. If you disagree with some or all of the information listed below, that is your right, and we are not going to argue with you.

  • Listen to calming music

  • If you have to practice social distancing, you can always pick up the phone or use skype or WhatsApp to talk to a loved one or friend. Don’t sit alone and panic; talking about an issue helps relieve stress.

  • Supplements that are helpful and that we are ourselves are taking

  • Vit A, Vit D, and Zinc: All three are good for boosting the immune system. A bit of Vit C can also be helpful.

  • Olive leaf extract: Natural antiviral agent

  • B complex: has many benefits, one of which is to help one cope with stress.

How to boost your immune system: Out of the box strategies

I am only discussing the stuff below because I was asked by several subscribers what I am doing in terms of the coronavirus. For those that are willing to experiment the information listed below might prove to be of interest. I am not advocating that you do this, but I have used these substances for years and continue to use them. I am willing to push the envelope provided there is data to back up a novel therapy.

Hydrogen peroxide 3%:

I use it as a disinfectant as its more effective than alcohol. Also, when the first signs of the flu start to manifest, I put undiluted 3% solution in both ears for 5-15 minutes. I wait until the bubbling stops before moving to the other ear. I also gargle with it and have always experienced substantial relief from a sore throat. I usually dilute 3% with some water and then gargle with it for 5 to 15 minutes. I have either stopped flu dead in its tracks or improved the recovery time by 50%.

The concentration of H2O2 required to kill half the bacteria within 15 s was 1.8 M (6%) but fell to 0.3 M (1%) at 2 min, to 10 mM (0.03%) at 1 h, and to 0.2 mM (0.0007%) with a 24-h exposure. The results indicate that if high levels of H2O2 can be sustained for long periods of time, H2O2 is an effective bactericidal agent, and the presence of LP and SCN- protects streptococci against killing by H2O2. Nevertheless, the combination of LP, H2O2, and SCN- is much more effective than H2O2 alone as an inhibitor of bacterial metabolism and growth.

Scientists at Oregon Health & Science University working with colleagues at the spin-out firm Najit Technologies published in vivo data demonstrating the utility of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-based approach to generating inactivated viral vaccines. Studies in mice demonstrated that H2O2-inactivated viral vaccines against lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV), smallpox, and even West Nile virus triggered high titres of virus-specific CD8+ T cells or neutralising antibodies and provided long-term protection against subsequent challenge with lethal doses of the respective pathogen.

The researchers first confirmed that the oxidising agent H2O2 effectively inactivates both DNA and RNA viruses. They then demonstrated that the peroxide inactivation didn’t impact greatly on immunogenicity. When yellow fever virus (YFV) inactivated using either formaldehyde, BPL, or H2O2 was probed with immune serum from infected mice, the H2O2-inactivated virus retained 87–98% of the maximum antibody binding response observed with live virus. In contrast, YFV inactivated using formaldehyde or BPL demonstrated markedly reduced immunogenicity.

`The effect of H2O2 on adenovirus types 3 and 6, adeno-associated virus type 4, rhinoviruses 1A, 1B, and type 7, myxoviruses, influenza A and B, respiratory syncytial virus, strain Long, and coronavirus strain 229E was studied in vitro, using different H2O2 concentration and times of exposure. H2O2 in a 3 percent concentration inactivated all the viruses under study within 1–30 min. Coronavirus and influenza viruses were found to be most sensitive. Reoviruses, adenoviruses and adeno-associated virus were relatively stable. H2O2 is a convenient means for virus inactivation.


In general, I consume abnormally large amounts of sugar via honey, fruits and chocolates that contain three or fewer ingredients. No soy lecithin or anything that resembles it. It should have sugar, cocoa, cocoa derivatives for the most are okay, milk, and nuts or fruits). However, I eat no bread or any wheat-based products. I stopped all wheat consumption in 2013, and since then, I more than doubled my average natural sugar intake. During this period, I visited the Dentist only twice; on both occasions because they kept pestering me to come in for a check-up. Another benefit of not consuming any wheat is that I naturally lost all excess weight and I now weigh the same as I did at 19.

The exciting thing is that the antibacterial effect of honey is in part is attributed to due to its ability to produce hydrogen peroxide.
The healing property of honey is due to the fact that it offers antibacterial activity, maintains a moist wound condition, and its high viscosity helps to provide a protective barrier to prevent infection. Its immunomodulatory property is relevant to wound repair too. The antimicrobial activity in most honeys is due to the enzymatic production of hydrogen peroxide. However, another kind of honey, called non-peroxide honey (viz., manuka honey), displays significant antibacterial effects even when the hydrogen peroxide activity is blocked. Its mechanism may be related to the low pH level of honey and its high sugar content (high osmolarity) that is enough to hinder the growth of microbes. The medical-grade honeys have potent in vitro bactericidal activity against antibiotic-resistant bacteria causing several life-threatening infections to humans.

Honey is one of the most appreciated and valued natural products introduced to humankind since ancient times. Honey is used not only as a nutritional product but also in health described in traditional medicine and as an alternative treatment for clinical conditions ranging from wound healing to cancer treatment. The aim of this review is to emphasise the ability of honey and its multitude in medicinal aspects. Traditionally, honey is used in the treatment of eye diseases, bronchial asthma, throat infections, tuberculosis, thirst, hiccups, fatigue, dizziness, hepatitis, constipation, worm infestation, piles, eczema, healing of ulcers, and wounds and used as a nutritious supplement. The ingredients of honey have been reported to exert antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antiproliferative, anticancer, and antimetastatic effects. According to modern scientific literature, honey may be useful and has protective effects for the treatment of various disease conditions such as diabetes mellitus, respiratory, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, and nervous systems, even it is useful in cancer treatment because many types of antioxidant are present in honey. In conclusion, honey could be considered as a natural therapeutic agent for various medicinal purposes. Sufficient evidence exists recommending the use of honey in the management of disease conditions. Based on these facts, the use of honey in clinical wards is highly recommended.
A simple test to determine if honey is from a good source.


Methylene blue:

This is probably going to be the most controversial of all substances listed here. Please note that I am not telling you what to do nor I am advocating that you follow in my footsteps. What attracted me to this substance was its nootropic function, its antibacterial and antiviral activity. My liver enzymes were slightly elevated four years ago, so I decided to test this product: four months later my ALT, which was (somewhat elevated) not only normalised but was in the perfect range. My AST, which was within the normal range, also moved to the ideal range. I have been taking MB on and off for over four years with no adverse effects.

At low doses, methylene blue (MB) has been shown to protect the brain from disease by acting as an electron donor to complex I-IV of the mitochondria which increases adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. ATP is the currency of life and the energy that powers humans. If our production of ATP declines, our physical and mental performance declines. Even healthy individuals can benefit from a boost in ATP production [1].

More specifically, MB can donate electrons to coenzyme Q and possibly to cytochrome C, thus increasing cytochrome oxidase (complex IV) activity and oxygen consumption. MB also increases heme synthesis [3].
MB is also able to stimulate glucose metabolism in conditions without oxygen and increase the amount of NAD+ produced by mitochondria [4, 5].

Low dose MB also acts as an antioxidant in mitochondria. MB interacts with oxygen to form water, which would decrease the superoxide radicals produced during the process of oxidative phosphorylation. MB can also trap leaking electrons produced by mitochondrial inhibitors and preserve the metabolic rate by bypassing blocked points of electron flow, thus improving mitochondrial respiration [1].

Methylene blue (MB) crosses the blood-brain barrier and at low doses serves as an electron cycler in the mitochondrial electron transport chain. Previous studies implicate MB in both memory enhancement and neuroprotection. We treated rats that underwent permanent bilateral carotid occlusion (2VO) or sham surgery with daily 4 mg/kg USP MB or saline for one month. Animals went through a battery of behavioral tests, including open field, visual water maze, and odour-recognition tasks. 2VO rats showed worse performance in the visual water task without showing differences in general motor activity, visually guided swimming ability or odour recognition. Daily MB attenuated the deficits in visual learning and memory that resulted from cerebrovascular insufficiency.

During training on three different discrimination problems in the visual water task, all animals were able to reach a criterion of 8/10 correct trials, but 2VO animals took longer to learn each problem and showed lower performance in a challenging memory probe. However, animals that received daily post-session MB performed significantly better than saline-treated subjects both during training and during the memory probe. This is the first study to demonstrate that MB attenuates learning and memory deficits caused by carotid occlusion. The results suggest that MB may be beneficial for conditions involving chronic cerebral hypoperfusion, such as mild cognitive impairment, vascular dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease.


Mumio or also known as mumijo

Mumijo is a widely used traditional medicine, especially in Russia, Altai Mountains, Mongolia, Iran Kasachstan and in Kirgistan. Mumijo preparations have been successfully used for the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases; they display immune-stimulating and antiallergic activity as well. In the present study, we investigate the chemical composition and the biomedical potential of a Mumijo(-related) product collected from Antarctica. The yellow material originates from the snow petrels, Pagodroma nivea. Extensive purification and chemical analysis revealed that the fossil samples are a mixture of glycerol derivatives.

In vitro experiments showed that the Mumijo extract caused in cortical neurons a strong neuroprotective effect against the apoptosis-inducing amyloid peptide fragment β-fragment 25–35 (Aβ25–35). In addition, the fraction rich in glycerol ethers/wax esters displayed a significant growth-promoting activity in permanent neuronal PC12 cells. It is concluded that this new Mumijo preparation has distinct and marked neuroprotective activity, very likely due to the content of glycerol ether derivatives.

Almost all the products listed above can easily be obtained by conducting a simple google search. However, I will list three sources for mumio. I usually go to a Russian pharmacy to purchase it, or when one of my visits Russia or Ukraine they bring some back.
