Objective: This report is a case series of consecutive patients diagnosed with COVID-19 treated with a nutritional and oxidative medical approach. We describe the treatment program and report the response of the 107 COVID-19 patients. Study Design: Observational case series consecutive. Setting: A family practice office in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan. Patients: All patients seen in the office from February through May 2020 diagnosed with COVID-19 were included in the study. COVID-19 was…

Hydrogen Peroxide as an Adjuvant Therapy for COVID-19: A Case Series of Patients and Caregivers in the Mexico City Metropolitan Area

TLDR
Hydrogen peroxide may offer prophylactic and therapeutic applications for responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and its low cost and medical potential and considering its relative safety if used properly are considered, it is suggested that randomized controlled trials should be conducted.

Complementary application of the ozonized saline solution in mild and severe patients with pneumonia COVID-19: A non-randomized pilot study

TLDR
Early evidence of efficacy shown improvements in symptoms such as dyspnea, weakness, and reduction in body temperature were observed and corresponded to improvements in laboratory results including D-dimer, fibrinogen, lactate dehydrogenase, and C-reactive protein.

Vitamin D Supplementation Could Possibly Improve Clinical Outcomes of Patients Infected with Coronavirus-2019 (COVID-2019)

TLDR
Vitamin D supplementation could possibly improve clinical outcomes of patients infected with COVID-2019, and an increase in serum 25(OH)D level in the body could either improveclinical outcomes or mitigate worst (severe to critical) outcomes, while a decrease in serum25(OH).

The Possible Role of Vitamin D in Suppressing Cytokine Storm and Associated Mortality in COVID-19 Patients

TLDR
Given that CRP is a surrogate marker for cytokine storm and is associated with Vit D deficiency, based on retrospective data and indirect evidence the authors see a possible role of Vit D in reducing complications attributed to unregulated inflammation and cytokineStorm.

TLDR
Medicine faces crisis with emerging “super bugs,” lethal viruses (Ebola), and stealth pathogens such as tick-borne infections, and would do well to revisit its pre-antibiotic era oxidation therapy roots, especially ozone in the current crisis.

Effect of Vitamin C Infusion on Organ Failure and Biomarkers of Inflammation and Vascular Injury in Patients With Sepsis and Severe Acute Respiratory Failure: The CITRIS-ALI Randomized Clinical Trial.

TLDR
In this preliminary study of patients with sepsis and ARDS, a 96-hour infusion of vitamin C compared with placebo did not significantly improve organ dysfunction scores or alter markers of inflammation and vascular injury.
