Restaurants are serving again. People are shopping. The world is slowly opening back up.
And we’re learning more every day about how to minimize the coronavirus infection risk so we can get on with our lives more safely.
But turn on the TV, and you’d never know it. It’s STILL nothing but gloom and doom. And instead of helping you make smart choices, all those out of context numbers can keep you living in fear.
So let me do what no one else will. Allow me to share more of the GOOD news that keeps emerging each day that doesn’t ever seem to be picked up by the media.
Because new research has revealed a very promising potential treatment for the COVID-19 infection.
It’s NOT a cure, mind you. But if more research confirms what scientists have seen so far, we may have a winner.
Experts say this breakthrough natural combination could help some folks suffering from coronavirus avoid one of its most notorious complications.
DMB protocol for COVID-19 could reduce severity
They’re calling it the DMB protocol, which is short for…
- 1,000 IU of vitamin D3
- 150 mg of magnesium
- 500 mcg vitamin B12
The theory is that vitamin D helps protect the lining of the respiratory tract, one of the places where the virus takes over and multiplies.
But remember D doesn’t work so great on its own. It needs to be switched “on.” That’s where the magnesium comes in
Plus, as a side benefit magnesium is also a natural bronchodilator. It can help relax vital bronchial muscles to help keep the airways open and oxygen flowing in. Which is, of course, absolutely critical in COVID-19 infection.
Vitamin B12 works in another way entirely. It helps support the immune system, primarily through the bacteria in the gut.
Together this triple threat combo could help reduce the severity of coronavirus symptoms. Or that was the theory anyway.
Now this preliminary study went beyond theory and into practice. And what it found is quite promising.
Natural combo may be linked to fewer ICU cases
The DMB protocol was given for two weeks to 17 COVID-19 patients over the age of 50. They were then compared to a control group of 26 patients with the virus who didn’t get the combo.
The researchers found that age and preexisting illnesses were major factors in determining who ended up needing oxygen. Not a surprise, since earlier studies have shown the same thing.
But they also found that the DMB protocol was associated with a BIG dip in those odds. In fact, just three of the 17 patients given the DMB combo needed supplemental oxygen versus 16 of the 26 in the control group.
And that’s not all. All of the control patients who ended up needing oxygen went into the ICU. Meanwhile, two of the three in the DMB protocol group who needed supplemental O2 ended up there.
But perhaps most exciting of all was that when coronavirus patients got the protocol earlier, it appeared to have an even greater positive impact. Nine patients were given the DMB protocol early on in their infections – within a week of hospital admission. And of those nine, only one deteriorated.
The bottom line on DMB
Now keep in mind this is a preliminary study. It hasn’t gone through peer-review yet. And even when it is, it’s still NOT a clinical trial. In other words, we need to take the findings with a big grain of salt.
We can’t say for sure how effective the DMB protocol is until more research is cone. But the findings ARE exciting and certainly something to keep an eye on.
And considering it’s all-natural and affordable, it’s something worth asking your own doctor about if you or a loved one should end up with the coronavirus.
