How I’m Treating My C0VID
By Steve Kirsch
I’m double vaxxed. It didn’t help, of course. I finally got COVID for the first time. Here’s how I’m treating it.
I’m pretty much over it. Just some congestion in my lungs, but my O2 sat is 99%.
I’ve always said that the only thing we really needed to do to respond to COVID was tell people:
- If you are sick, stay home
- As soon as you realize you have COVID, start on an early treatment protocol like the one listed below.
Nothing else was needed. In fact, I’d argue that everything we did including vaccination, masking, lockdowns, mandates, remdesivir, standardized hospital protocols, and more was counter-productive; it just made things worse.
I came down with COVID on Friday, June 24, 2022.
My wife had COVID (she got it from a golfing partner) and I didn’t wait long enough before interacting with her.
I am double vaccinated because in March 2021, I believed that the FDA and CDC were honest organizations. It wasn’t until 2 months later that I figured out I was badly mistaken. While many others realized this before I did, pretty much all our friends are still on the blue pill. I switched to the red pill as soon as I saw two black swans (a friend with 3 dead relatives 1 week after vaccination and a vendor and his wife both vaccine injured).
I suspected I had COVID because I woke up with muscle aches on Friday morning.
Since I was symptomatic, I verified it was COVID with a test from iHealth. These are the cheapest tests around, less than $5 per test ($9.79 per two pack) if you order from code1supply for example. The iHealth test showed positive for me 30 seconds after I applied the liquid to the well (it is normally supposed to take 15 minutes so I guess I had a high viral load).
Everyone has their own favorite COVID protocol
Here’s how I’m treating my COVID and it seems to be working pretty well since I’m just a bit tired.
This is not the only way to treat COVID. This is just what I’m doing.
Your treatment may vary depending on what drugs you are already on so check with your doctor before duplicating what I did.
Also, different doctors will have their own preferences. For example some people will have you take 40,000 units of vitamin D just once. Others say 10,000 IU per day. Which one is better? Hard to know. So all of these treatment protocols are approximate guesses as to the optimum protocol. Which means your doctor may recommend something different and it may be just as good. I’m not making the claim the protocol listed below is optimal.
One thing everyone agrees on is that you always want to start treating COVID instantly as soon as you get diagnosed which is why I always carry the meds with me when I travel.
I already had all the meds on hand because I pre-ordered everything using myfreedoctor.com. If you want to get the cheapest meds, it takes about a week, otherwise you have to use local pharmacies and that can be a lot more expensive.
Here’s the list of things I’m taking. For me, there are no side effects at all for any of these drugs making the combination very easy to take:
- Vitamin C: 3,000 mg/day (3 chewable tablets since I like chewables)
- Vitamin D3: 10K IU/day. Two small little pills in my case.
- Zinc: 50 mg/day (I have this covered since I take Biome Boosters from Progenabiome which supports Sabine Hazan’s research). Don’t overdo the zinc.
- Aspirin: 81 mg (some advise more): I went with the chewable Bayer aspirin. There is some debate about whether full aspirin is better but I’ve read that it is better to take the lower dose, but I can’t recall where I read that; it turned out that different things are activated on the lower dose vs. the higher dose.
- Pepcid: one10 mg tablet 2x per day (20mg /day). Malone’s paper recommends a much higher dose 60mg TID which is 180mg/day. He also recommends using this with Celecoxib which requires a prescription. Also the higher dose was used when this drug was used as the sole therapy. I went with the lower option so this may not do much
- Allegra: once a day. This is complementary to the Pepcid and blocks a different set of receptors.
- NAC: 600 mg/day
- Nigella sativa seeds: 80 mg /kg per day x 10 days (split it up) which is 6gm /day; So I take 1.5 tsp 3X/day.
- Ivermectin (15mg pills compounded): 2 pills/day for 10 days. Take with a fatty meal for best absorption. This is based on my weight which is 77 kg. Your dosage will be proportional to your weight.
- Hydroxychloroquine (200 mg tablets): 2 tablets twice a day on day 1, then 1 tablet twice a day for 10 days total. Ideally take on an empty stomach.
- Activia yogurt: twice a day. This contains bifidobacteria which is helpful for eliminating COVID from your gut.
- Azithromycin (250 mg tablet): 2 tablets day 1, then 1 per day thereafter for 5 days total. Doesn’t do wonders for your gut bacteria though. However, even Sabine Hazan who is a gut bacteria expert recommends this for up to 5 days.
- Melatonin: 3mg extended release at bedtime
- Fluvoxamine: 50mg taken twice a day (total 100 mg per day) for 14 days. AVOID caffeine while on fluvoxamine. You’ll regret it if you ignore my advice.
- Povidone-iodine nasal rinse: 4x day. First I microwave 60ml of distilled water in a NeilMed sinus rinse squeeze bottle. Then I add half an eyedropper of Povidone iodine 10% and 1/4 tsp of salt and use it just like a regular sinus rinse. It should look like a dark iced tea.
- Crest Scope Classic gargle: 4x day because it has CPC (Colgate Total can be used as well). You can also swab your nostrils with this, but the saline rinse is more comfortable.
- Plenty of rest
- Walk around regularly to keep the blood moving. You want to minimize your risk of a DVT or pulmonary embolism.
- If you sit, elevate your feet.
- Take regular pulse ox readings while walking around
- Glutamine: 10 g l-Glutamine available in powder forms taken 3 times a day with meals. In the control group, 38 out of 230 covid patients died. In the glutamine group, 0 out of 222 patients died. The effect of glutamine supplementation on serum levels of some inflammatory factors, oxidative stress, and appetite in COVID-19 patients: a case-control study – PubMed (nih.gov) Again, no mortality and no ICU admission in the glutamine group… Effect of oral l-Glutamine supplementation on Covid-19 treatment – PubMed (nih.gov). This is not to be confused with glutathione which you’d take if you were vaccine injured. On the other hand, there is this paper: Endogenous Deficiency of Glutathione as the Most Likely Cause of Serious Manifestations and Death in COVID-19 Patients.
- Lactoferrin: 750mg per day for 14 days.
- Prednisone 20mg tablets. Take 3 tablets/day for 5 days starting on DAY 8 as last resort and ONLY if needed. I have it handy but you should never need to use it. The mistake a lot of people make is not to read the instructions to only use it LATE in the disease. I know people who start taking it on day 1 and they regret the error. If you started treatment early, you aren’t going to need this drug.

Started this on Monday per advice from Dr. Sabine Hazan since I basically recovered so quickly:
- Stop the NAC, Nigella Sativa, HCQ. These aren’t good for gut bacteria.
- IVM: reduce to 15mg/day
- Add bone broth, sauerkraut, increase to 4 activia yogurts/day to rebuild gut healthy bacteria
- Saline rinse without the povidone iodine
- Add 200mcg of Selenium for 10 days
- Increase Pepcid to 40mg 2X per day (80mg total per day)
How am I doing?
Friday, Jun 24: Muscle soreness. Started treatment. Oura ring showed an elevated pulse (90bpm during sleep instead of 67bpm) as well as elevated temperature (2.6 degrees over normal).
Sat, Jun 25: Productive cough (yellow stuff), diarrhea. Oura says body temp 1.9 degrees over normal.
Sunday, Jun 26: Just feeling a little off/tired. No cough. My nighttime pulse is back down to 68 bpm during sleep. Oura ring indicated Body temp 1.2 degrees over baseline.
Monday, Jun 27: Pretty much back to normal. No runny nose, no cough, etc. Never lost smell. My nighttime body temp last night is nearly back to normal per my Oura ring. Now on the “modified” protocol.
