^ love Dr. Campbell, I'm glad I watched his videos early on at the beginning of the pandemic, been taking Vitamin D every day since. He gives great practical advice. There was another UK doctor I had watched that videoed his days as a general practitioner. It was very scary at the beginning of the pandemic because he was truly on the front lines. I need to rediscover him and see how he is doing, hopefully well.

Supermarkets in German state of Hesse can now block entry to the unvaccinated

https://www.thelocal.de/20211015/sup...-unvaccinated/

Denying entry to perfectly healthy people. What’s next make them sew a COVID virus patch on their coats and place in quarantine camps?

The world is going mad.

How do you know? How could anyone know?

I do not agree with those rules, to be clear on that, it means going from 3G rules ("G" as German abbreviations for vaccinated, tested or recovered) to 2G rules (vaccinated or recovered). Testings alone are not sufficient under 2G rules to get access.

However, you imply that tested people all are automatically "perfectly healthy", to give it an ideological twist again. And that conclusion simply is wrong.

Its even wrong for recovered and vaccinated people as well. You can catch the ifneciton although you have immunity. Chance sof rit are smuch samller, and chances for suffering a serious case are even more smaller. But you are not "perfectly healthy". And you can spread the infecton to others.


I see no need for those stricter 2G rules, and think we in general must consider opening up again now, since we have a high vaccination rate. But I reject the twist you add to it.

Best wishes!

You know the drill by now: Vitamine D (10K-20K IU), C (3-6 gr or as much as he can digest: higher is better), Zinc (~80mg but for not longer than 2-3 weeks, it mounts up and then can become toxic, it fades just slowly), Magnesium (500-1000mg), Quercetin (500mg, google it, its a plant flavonoid).

So, lots of it as long as his bottom does not start to leak. C and Mg distributed in several smaller doses over the day, that increases digestive tolerance.

Q10 (400-600 mg) , Omega-3 (4gr of EPA+DHA) maybe also have direct effects in this scenario, but I am not certain whether or not they help if started just now, without longer building time. Iodine would be good, too, but it takes months to build in higher levels in the body, so is of little or no immediate use (it plays, amongst many others things, a very important role in the regeneration and control of permeability of the guts' mucosa which has an immunity-relevant function).

Plenty of (unrefined) salt. Lots of drinking. Keep sugar low, best: none. Eat healthy. Bring the guts into shape, at least dont stress it. No alcohol.

I hoe your boy gets well soon Jimbuna. Unlike some others here I will refrain from offering unqualified medical advice.

Thanks guys. I spoke to him via phone earlier and he feels like it's simply a bad cold so I'm quietly confident he will manage.

I had very similar symptoms. But I also feel they were compounded by a complete loss of appetite. Make sure he gets some good food in him. All my best to you and yours.

At least he could go to the grocery store and ride the BART.

He loves cooking but not right now so I'll take him a few of my Chinese and Indian curries, the latter are usually too hot for him.

No doubt his mom will be slaving over our cooker tomorrow.
