We have our first confirmed case of Coronavirus at my work place.  It makes me nervous, but my position isn't a work-from-home job, so I'll have to stick it out and see how it goes.  I'm a strong believer in Sambucol and Sambucus and the like, so I'll be taking it daily.  I also have Plaquenil on hand to take if I start getting any type of lung issues.

Trace: Hugs and prayers!
In case you didn't see anyplace I put it that Covid is an acid-dependent virus, like the flu. Change your body pH and it dies off, just like pouring vinegar in a fist tank kills the fish. Baking soda, in water, every night before bed changes your pH to alkaline and knocks it down. Don't know if it'll take out 100%, but it's an easy thing to do.

1 tsp is an average dose for a 150 pound person. so 1/2 tsp for a 75 pound kid, 1.5 tsp for a 225 pound person. The idea is to put your body pH to 8 for an hour, if you pH test yourself. Take it before bed, it will mess with digestive acid for about 1-2 hours when you take it, so before bed keeps it from affecting your food.

WORTH TRYING!!
Stay safe my friend....

Hi Pearl,

You make sense. Like you, I am not confident it will work, but I understand the logic.

I'm willing to try, I wouldn't think there is anything to lose.

So far I feel fine except for a cold I've been fighting for a week or so.  I'm not very concerned.

Trace, I sincerely hope you're going to be okay. The virus is nasty, also a threat to perfectly healthy and fit people, so avoid risks if you can.

Yeah, take care and remember that discretion is the better part of valour.  Or is the better part of Valor, but you've got to mix French and American to get there.
