Coronavirus update by David Schmidt, Scientist and CEO, LifeWave

What are your options when it comes to protecting yourself from the coronavirus? Here are the highlights from David Schmidt’s recent webinar on the subject, as he talked about what we can do to protect ourselves and our family -- beyond government measures.

this information to your healthcare practitioner so you can formulate a strategy that is right for you. None of the information contained herein is to be considered medical advice. Lifewave products CANNOT be used to cure, treat or prevent the coronavirus. This information is provided to empower you with information so that you can keep yourself and your family in optimal health. If you become infected, speak to your doctor about some of the options presented to come up with a strategy that’s right for you.

The coronavirus is one virus in a very large family of viruses which includes the common cold. People who have coronavirus and are contagious may appear to be in good health with no symptoms. The novel coronavirus is estimated to be 10,000 times more infectious than common coronavirus. It will also stay active on many surfaces and in the air for three or four hours. Many experts believe as we get into the summer months, the virus will subside; however, information changes daily on this point. The coronavirus does not like strong sunlight. The critical temperature at which the virus dies is at 86 degrees Fahrenheit. The virus also does not like high humidity levels.

People with certain health and physical conditions are at higher risk to become infected with the coronavirus. Those risk factors include:
  • Age 60 and higher (although people at any age can be infected, those with impaired immune systems such as an older population are more likely to experience serious illness).
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Auto Immune disorders including fibromyalgia, arthritis, Parkinson’s Disease, cancer, and diabetes

The coronavirus can remain active up to 3 hours on copper surfaces, up to 4 hours on cardboard surfaces and 2 – 3 days on stainless steel. On antimicrobial copper, however, the virus dies nearly instantly.

Gargling with as little as a 0.5% hydrogen peroxide can inactivate the coronavirus within a minute. 3% hydrogen peroxide solution is available at most pharmacies and supermarkets and may be used without diluting. You can also clean surfaces with hydrogen peroxide solution. Ozone is helpful in destroying viruses and ozone air purifiers are sold for this purpose. You can install ozone air purifiers in your office or home to keep the air clean and pure, to reduce the viral load and the risk of infection. Be sure to purchase an ozone air purifier that is intended to operate with people present, as many ozone units are sold for disinfecting only.

• Copper glycinate or copper chelate, ideally 3 – 5 mgs. Some people may have adverse reactions to copper supplements so speak with your doctor first. As little as 2mg of copper daily may be effective.
  • Vitamin C elevates production of hydrogen peroxide in the body. Take 1000 mgs daily (Note: do no take if you’re prone to kidney stones.) The combination of copper and Vitamin C has been shown to inactivate the HSV virus.
  • Melatonin is a powerful supplement with antiviral effects, and it aids in getting a good night’s sleep which supports a healthy immune system and helps to suppress viral activity. 7-8 hours of sleep is recommended.
  • Food grade sources of hydrogen peroxide, diluted to .5 %. There are some products that combine food-grade hydrogen peroxide with aloe vera.
  • Garlic extract, even stronger when combined with Vitamin C (double your levels of nitric oxide, supports immune system). It is not recommended to take garlic daily due to undesirable telomere effects.
  • BHT - Butylated hydroxytoluene, taken with coconut oil. 500mg per day. Consult with your doctor as people with Liver conditions should not consume.
  • Oregano oil, when symptomatic
  • Olive leaf extract, when symptomatic
  • Colostrum supports the overall health of the immune system
  • L Glutamine, an inexpensive amino acid
  • Ginger root – slice it and put in a pot of boiling water, sit for 10 minutes, drink 1 liter
  • Elderberry extract will keep a virus from replicating
  • Zinc gluconate; don’t take more than 50 mgs a day of zinc, optimally take 25 mgs a day. Zinc gluconate lozenges have been shown to kill the common coronavirus.
  • Vitamin D is an anti-inflammatory. You can get it by sitting in the sun for 15 to 20 minutes with no sunscreen exposing the chest area, or take 5,000 international units (IU) a day

  • Healthy fats like Omega 3 fatty acids provide essential protein and anti-oxidants which supports a healthy immune system
  • Fruits and vegetables that contain anti-oxidants known to combat viral infections
  • Liver has 20 to 30 mgs of copper per serving, and copper is known to boost the immune system
  • Dark chocolate is also a great source of copper
  • Lots of water
Intermittent fasting can also dramatically improve your immune response system. Eat during 8 hours then fast for 16 hours. You can have black coffee, green tea or water but no caloric intake.

Intense exercise is beneficial to maintain a healthy immune system, such as resistance training, weightlifting, push-ups, yoga, calisthenics, Qi Gong and sprinting. Never exercise when you are sick because that compromises the immune system even further.

• Copper supplementation as described.
• Consider getting an IV drip of vitamin C and/or hydrogen peroxide from a doctor
• Ozone injections can be helpful, administered by a doctor
• Chlorine dioxide (sodium hypochlorite) treatments can help, but they are not approved by the FDA

Whatever you do, don’t panic! Added stress will elevate inflammation in the body and make you more susceptible to the coronavirus.

How LIfeWave patches work

Why LifeWave Patches 

Scientist David Schmidt invented a pop can-size oxygen generator that could be used by firefighters and also submariners. The device generated 4 hours of oxygen. He was involved in making the oxygen generator, when he was asked by the Navy to help develop a mini-sub that would increase the survivability of its Navy Seal crew members. Although because of delays, he wasn't able to join the team, it got him thinking. The Navy frowned upon the use of stimulants, like energy drinks or pep pills, but needed something small, compact and light.

"The thought occurred to me that we have wireless communication today in the form of cell phones and satellite TV; why not have a way to wirelessly communicate with the human body. A device that could 'talk' to the body to ask the body to do different things."

In the 1980s, Dr. John Zimmerman discovered the human body emits pulsating magnetic fields. Electrons flow through our bodies constantly. For example, nerve impulses travel from the brain to the muscles in our bodies. The pulsating magnetic fields, like radio waves, are a high frequency carrier wave that can carry encoded information to the body. The DNA is able to send and receive messages using an electronic process. 

LifeWave patches were developed using these principles. Schmidt invented a method that programmed organic structures the same way that computer chips are programmed. He started with ordinary materials like amino acids and specific sugars and put them into water-based solutions. (He only used materials that the FDA lists as safe.) He processed these materials in a very special way so that they are capable of "talking" to the human body. 

About LifeWave Patches

The amazing thing about the LifeWave patches is that NOTHING enters the body; instead, the patch that communicates with the body to cause different things to happen. 

In the case of LifeWave energy patches within minutes of using the patches a dramatic gain in stamina occurs. Because LifeWave IS NOT a stimulant, A person will "feel" this increase in energy with no jitters or energy rush. After a workout, people find that they do not get as tired or fatigued. LifeWave energy patch is a similar phenomena like converting food into energy.

With IceWave, a pain patch, put the patch over the pain first. If that doesn't work, poke around by moving the patches around. Move the white patch first. Then move the brown patch. Within seconds the body produces endorphins that provide pain relief.

Sleep patches tell the body to make more melatonin. The patches also tell the body to make serotonin, the happy hormone. Use the patches only at night.

The SP-6 patch balances the hypothalamus. It helps the body by balancing body functions so the body works in dealing with addictions. It is only the left-sided patch because that is where addiction points are located.

The hypothalamus:

  • releases hormones
  • regulates body temperature
  • maintains daily physiological cycles
  • controls appetite
  • manages of sexual behavior
  • regulates emotional responses

The Alavida patch helps the body balance the pineal gland, called the all-seeing eye. The All-Seeing-EYE had always been part of Earth's mythologies and creation mysteries. THE PINEAL GLAND. It is the Spiritual Third Eye, our Inner Vision, and it is considered the Seat of the Soul. It is located in the geometric center of our Brain. The Aeon patch is designed to help promote an "anti-stress" response in the body.

The Carnosine patch helps the body balance carnosine in the body. Carnosine is an antioxidant found naturally in the human body that plays an important role in overall health and athletic performance, accelerates wound healing.

The Nirvana patch supports healthy endorphin production to enhance mood.

Hormone regulating centers. I put them on my sleep mask, because I had a cataract starting. Started playing around with putting them on my sleep mask.

X-39 patch stem cell patch requires a person take copper and zinc as supplements - 2.5 mg of copper and 16.5 mg of zinc.

The patch is not in charge so using more patches is not better. The body picks up the signal from the patch and the body decides where help is needed.

Lumps and bumps are the body walling off toxin. Increased Glutathione and Carnosine both help reduce toxins. The Glutathione and Carnosine  patches will signal to the body to help produce more of both of these.

Scientist David Schmidt talks about COVID 19 options

"This is one of the best videos I have seen describing ways to keep healthy during the Coronavirus outbreak."Click on the YouTube video below. John Fisher

In the webinar, scientist David Schmidt cites studies that show people can take supplements to increase their immunity against coronavirus. Studies show coronavirus is killed by copper and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).

1. He suggests taking a minimum of 1000mg of Vitamin C daily as this is converted into H2O2.

2. H2O2 may be taken with aloe vera as a supplement.

3. In the case of an infection, a hospital can administer an IV drip of H2O2. Only a medical doctor should do this because of the risks of doing IVs.

4. Ozone may also be injected. It is more powerful than H2O2 in fighting the coronavirus. 

5. Very high doses of Vitamin C can be administered by IV. This approach is very safe. 10 grams of Vitamin C and higher can be administered by IV.

7. Research also suggests gargling with hydrogen peroxide. 

Other antivirals can also be used for fighting coronavirus. Some are listed below.

1. Garlic extract is made from the garlic plant . The plant has long been considered a beneficial plant for health and has been used as an antihelmintic, a rubefacient, an anti-infective, and an antihypertensive.
2. BHT reduces and prevents viral infections such as herpes, thus terminating their outbreaks. Also BHT is effective against many different human and animal viruses including CMV (cytomegalovirus), pseudorabies, genital herpes, HIV, and some strains of influenza. Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is listed as “generally recognized as safe.”
3. Oregano oil is an effective natural antibiotic and anti-fungal, and may also help you lose weight and lower your cholesterol levels.
4. Olive leaf extract have been shown to treat infection caused by a large number of viruses as well as bacteria, and parasitic protozoans. 
5. Colostrum is rich in antibodies.
6. Fasting can help build immunity. One approach would be to eat during an eight hour period and fast for 16 hours. 

Below are some other possibilities for fighting the corona virus.

1. L-Glutamine increases production of T-cells (which are the immunity cells in the body).
2. Ginger root is a very strong anti-bacterial and is anti-viral.
3. Elderberry extract prevents viruses from replicating.
4. Zinc gluconate lozenges kill viruses.
5. Vitamin D supports immune response.

Remembering how we handled the swine flu in 2009

A friend of mine shared this from wikipedia with me and I think this is great information for everyone to have. It's a great reminder for all of us about viruses from our past. Jacki

On April 26, 2009, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services declared Swine Flu a public health emergency. On October 24, 2009, President Barack Obama declared Swine Flu a national emergency in the United States. On November 12, 2009, the CDC reported an estimated 22 million Americans had been infected with 2009A H1N1 and 4,000 Americans have died. On December 10, 2009, the CDC reported an estimated 50 million Americans or 1 in 6 people had been infected with the 2009A H1N1 Virus and 10,000 Americans had died, by which time the vaccine was beginning to be widely distributed to the general public by several states. On December 23, 2009 the CDC reported a reduction of the disease by 59% percent and the disease was expected to end in the United States in January 2010.

Swine Flu symptoms
Schools closed in many states in response to local flu outbreaks. By April 30, 2009, 300 U.S. schools and school districts had announced closures in response to the outbreak, giving 169,000 students time off. On May 4, 2009, about 533 schools in 24 states in the U.S. were closed, affecting about 330,000 students. On September 25, 2009, 42 schools were closed in eight states as the second wave of the pandemic began.

On May 5, Kathleen Sebelius stated in a CDC news conference that school closures for single confirmed cases of H1N1 influenza were unnecessary, but that parents keep their child home if he or she displays an influenza-like illness.

Several US airlines waived fees for cancellations and flight changes. At least one cruise line changed the itinerary to avoid Mexican ports of call.

It seems we have all gotten into a panic with this flu strain. Italy doesn't have the structure to handle their cases. We are very fortunate to be living in the USA. If everyone chills, follows the washing hands, and staying home a while if you can, while we wait for it to blow over. It is not party time so keep to the home base. You can see the Swine flu did not have the effect this flu has on the population, but it was a pandemic in 2009. There is something to learn here on caring for one another and being kind. Helping the old folks with shopping etc. And chill out.
  • Wash your hands, over and over again all day. 
  • Consume Vitamin C about 2 to 3 grams per day.
  • Take Garlic Extract for the next month.
  • When out in public keep a zinc lozenge in your mouth.
  • Gargle with diluted hydrogen peroxide after excursions and at bedtime.
  • Supplement with Nano or Colloidal Silver (1 teaspoon - 2 to 3 times daily)
  • Continue doing all the other things you normally do to support your immune system.

Glutathione levels lessen as you get older

More information about  Glutathione patches.

What is glutathione?

  • Your cells contain glutathione, which is a substance made from three amino acids: cysteine, glutamate, and glycine. It is essential for life and for a healthy body.
  • Glutathione acts as an important antioxidant in your body. That means it helps combat free radicals. These are molecules that can damage your body's cells.
  • Glutathione plays a role in many chemical reactions in your body. It detoxifies chemicals as well as pollutants and drugs.
  • Your supply of glutathione seems to decrease as you get older, possibly because your body can't create as much. 
  • Lower glutathione levels appear to go hand-in-hand with poorer health. Lower levels may play a role in many conditions that are more likely to develop in older people.

Why take glutathione?

Some people take glutathione:
  • For its antioxidant power
  • As a detoxification agent
  • While there is no evidence that glutathione works in this regard, some people use it in an attempt to protect themselves from the harmful effects of radiation and chemotherapy.
  • People also take glutathione to try to treat weakened immune systems or infertility, as well as many other conditions.

What is the best way to get glutathione?

Because the levels of glutathione decrease as people get older or in poor health, they need to find ways to supplement the natural levels of glutathione in the body. Taking glutathione by mouth does not appear to be an effective way to get it into your body. It is thought that glutathione may be broken down by enzymes in the stomach.

Some studies suggest using injections or a treatment to inhale it. Inhaled glutathione may trigger asthma attacks in people who have asthma. Taking glutathione long-term has been linked to lower zinc levels.

Some supplements may boost the body's production of glutathione, such as:
  • Curcumin
  • N-acetylcysteine
  • Selenium
  • Silymarin
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E 

Can you get glutathione naturally from foods?

Your body doesn't seem to absorb glutathione well from foods. However, certain foods high in amino acids that contain sulfur may help boost your levels. These include:
  • Unprocessed meat
  • Garlic
  • Broccoli
  • Asparagus
  • Avocados
  • Spinach

LifeWave patches may be one way to get glutathione.

LifeWave patches use light technology to activate cells in the body that produce more glutathione.

dōTERRA recommendations for COVID-19

Given the dynamic nature of the situation with COVID-19 around the world, dōTERRA is advising people to adhere to the guidance offered by public health agencies in their region. This may include basic precautions or significant restrictions on travel or public gatherings. 
How to combat viruses

To help manage any concerns and reduce transmission of respiratory viruses, including COVID-19, in your area, Dr. Russell Osguthorpe, chief medical officer of doTerra, recommends that everyone follow these evidence-based procedures.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, including dōTERRA’s On Guard Sanitizing Mist—which contains 64% alcohol, can be used.
  • Stay home when sick, except to get medical care
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects often.
  • Face masks are not recommended for people who are well. However, if you show symptoms of COVID-19 or another respiratory disease, then you should wear a mask.

What you should know about COVID-19

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby, or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
  • It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes. However, this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
Most people who contract COVID-19 are thought to be mildly symptomatic or asymptomatic (showing no symptoms). These include:
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

Product Availability

dōTERRA CEO David Stirling indicated that the company has seen a dramatic spike in sales of their On Guard family of products. The demand for dōTERRA’s On Guard Sanitizing Mist has increased by over 400% in most markets in recent weeks. The company is quadrupling its supplies of this product in the coming weeks. He said they are working around the clock to stay in stock for all of these products. In the interim there may be some occasional short term stock outs of this and a few other high demand products. Because of their long-term strategic planning with their global network of growers they have stocked more than a year’s supply of most of our essential oils. They don’t expect any significant outages for the On Guard essential oil blend or other essential oils that are in unusually great demand.
Stirling said dōTERRA is restricted on the health claims that can be made about their products. He said they recognize essential oils have profound health and wellness benefits, but they do not claim that their products prevent, treat or cure illnesses or diseases, including COVID-19. 
"While there seems like a lot to worry about, there are many reasons to be optimistic," Stirling said.
  • The COVID-19 virus is thought to be very similar to other respiratory viruses like influenza or RSV, and is mild in most people who get it.
  • Children seem particularly protected from severe COVID-19 disease.
  • There has been extraordinary cooperation in the global sharing of clinical data and research.
"Be assured that your health and well-being is imperative to us," he said.
