How To Kick Covid’s Ass; Cajun Edition

After the move this week in stocks one would think the virus is all but gone, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. My father fell ill to the corona virus at the very end of March. A week ago, last Wednesday, he was tested and the test confirmed that indeed it was Covid-19. By the time he got the test results, last Thursday, his fever had already vanished. He is still a little weak, but for the most part kicked the Corona’s ass, even with diabetes and high blood pressure.


My mother was actually sick first and went to the doctor before my Dad, but was denied a test. She also is more than fine now, but swears she had the virus. They both live in NOLA, that’s New Orleans, Louisiana for the ill informed.


What did they do?


1.) 8oz of water every hour, and 16oz when mouth was dry. They also alternated with power-aid for the potassium and salt to protect the kidneys.  ZERO caffeine and absolutely no soft drinks (They love their soda pop).


2.) They took 5000mg of Vitamin C, 3000IU Vitamin E, 1 multivitamin, 1000mg of calcium/ 500mg of magnesium. 1000mgcholine and inositol, 20g of protein 3x a day for first three days. Yogurt for protein was their friend.


3.) Reduced C to 1000mg 3x a day, all else the same for the next 3 days.


4.) Reduced E to 1000iu 3x a day, with all else being the same.


5.) Any shortness of breath they increased vitamin E intake by 2000 and took another multi vitamin. They also added ZMA at night for the extra b6 and magnesium


6.) Increased d3 to 2000iu a day


7.) If urine was dark yellow, they drank more water and poweraid. They were looking for brown or cloudy urine to head back to the Doctor.


8.) Observed stool to make sure liver was functioning properly. When light colored, they added 2000iu E


9.) After every bathroom trip, they would consume 8 oz of water or poweraid


10.) Sunlight & Prayer (Think boss hog VP Pence)


Some other notes from Mom: Vitamin E frees radicals and helps breath at lower O2 levels. Vitamin C keeps your blood from thickening and helps prevent secondary infections. Vitamin E, C, Ca/Mg, B6, Mg Choline/inisotol to help keep normal blood carrying O2 to protect kidneys and liver as they work overtime to rid the free radicals and waste the virus produces. If they felt irritable, they took additional Ca/Mg. They would practice deep breathing to avoid panic and oxygenate the blood. She notes panic and fear are your worst enemies (Similar to the stock market). Recognize and accept the fear and panic then breath deep and let it go when you exhale.


My mother is no Doctor, but she has a nickname the Vitamin Queen. She is very holistic, and does not rely on doctors. Take everything above with a grain of salt, we are not professionals. I am simply outlining what they did, and for some old ass people (sorry Mom & Dad), they kicked Corona’s butt.


As for stocks, sell them tomorrow. Enjoy Good Friday, along with Easter Sunday with your loved ones. Apparently Q is here. Whoever the hell that is.


See you guys tomorrow at the open…
