    18:33

    COVID-19 Update 59 with Roger Seheult, MD of

    We recorded this video in response to your comments asking what Dr. Seheult's daily regimen is - to optimize his immune system and minimize COVID-19 risk. In the absence of good clinical data that is specific to SARS-CoV-2, Dr. Seheult discusses supplements, sleep, and his daily disinfection routine when removing PPE, getting in his car, and returning home from the hospital. We look forward to more randomized, blinded, placebo-control studies in the future that will build upon the current body of evidence as it relates to immunity and specifically coronaviruses such as SARS-CoV-2.

  • Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Zinc and COVID - Prevention of COVID

    12:41

    Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Zinc, and COVID - Prevention of COVID

    Does colder temperature make you more prone to getting a cold Or COVID?
    Most health experts agree that people spend more time indoors and close contact with other people when it’s cold, which increases germs spread.
    Also, experts believe that our immune system may be more active when our body is warmer, as in during the summer months.

    ⏩ Prevention of COVID Timestamps
    00:00 - Start
    00:38 - Do Colder Temperatures make you more prone to getting COVID?
    02:52 - Why are COVID more likely to cause infections in winter?
    03:20 - Vitamin D and COVID
    07:20 - Vitamin C and COVID
    09:47 - Zinc and COVID

    Back in 2007, there was this study…

    - In this particular study looking at the spread of the influenza virus, they put guinea pigs together in a chamber and carried out different environmental experiments on them. They found that low relative humidities of 20%–35% were most favorable for infection, while the transmission was completely blocked at high humidity of 80%.
    They also found that when guinea pigs were kept at 5 °C, transmission occurred with greater frequency than at 20 °C, while at 30 °C, no transmission was detected.
    The authors concluded that low relative humidities produced by indoor heating and cold
    temperatures favored the spread of the influenza virus.

    I also want to add that cold weather, by itself, can cause a runny nose without necessarily
    having a cold allows for the virus to be carried in those secretions, which probably facilitates transmission.

    40% of common colds are caused by rhinoviruses. The second most common cause of cold is the coronavirus, the normal one, not this covid.
    Its been shown that the rhinovirus reproduces more quickly at cooler temperatures means you might catch a cold more quickly if you’re chilly.

    And this probably applies to the coronavirus as well.

    It's likely that with the combination of all of these 5 factors, meaning cooler temp, lower humidity, people staying indoors more often in winter months, cold weather causing runny noses, and our immune system is more active when it's warmer, these combinations of factors likely explain why colds, flu, and COVID are more likely to cause infections in the winter months.

    But there is likely a 6th factor as well. And that is vitamin D. Our bodies don’t normally make vitamin D unless we get sunlight. In the winter months, for most of us in this world, we don’t get enough sunlight to make enough vitamin D. Unless you live warm, maybe you are the exception. So if you aren’t getting enough sunlight in the winter months, that means you have to get enough vitamin D in your diet. And if you don’t do that, you will have low vitamin D levels. Vitamin D helps regulate or Calcium levels and is important for bone and muscle health. It also plays a role in regulating our immune system, but its exact role is not known.

    Why is this important for the common cold, flu, and perhaps with this novel, the coronavirus that’s causing COVID? Well, vitamin D doesn’t affect these viruses themselves. Instead, it affects our immune systems.

    So what is my recommendation for taking Vitamin D?
    The best thing to do is check with your doctor to see if you might have low vitamin D, and if it is low, you’ll def need to get more vitamin D, especially during the winter months.

    Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin. It is vital to white blood cells that help to fight infections and overall immune system health. Vitamin C is also important for iron absorption, and being deficient in iron can make you more vulnerable to infections in general.
    The normal, recommended daily intake of vitamin C for adults from the diet and/or supplements is 75 to 120 mg. In addition, you can get about 80 to 90 mg from a cup of orange juice or sliced orange, or even more from kiwi fruit or a cup of sweet peppers.

    Zinc has become one of the most popular suggestions for reducing symptoms of COVID.
    Some studies showed that zinc reduces the duration of a cold by half, while others showed no effect. Another study found that the type of zinc taken determined the result—zinc gluconate lozenges that provided 13.3 milligrams (mg) of zinc lessened the duration of colds, but zinc acetate lozenges that provided 5 mg or 11.5 mg of zinc did not.

  • COVID-19 and Zinc

    22:21

    President Trump taking zinc (WSJ)



    Low zinc levels at clinical admission associates with poor outcomes in COVID-19, (11th October)



    Zinc balances immune responses and also has a proven direct antiviral action against some viruses.

    Zinc deficiency (ZD) is a common condition in elderly and individuals with chronic diseases

    Increased intracellular zinc concentrations efficiently impair replication

    Resulting in a lower number of viruses

    Retrospective analysis

    Patients admitted in Barcelona

    15th March to 30th April 2020

    Clinical severity of COVID-19 and PMH assessed

    Fasting plasma zinc levels measured routinely at admission

    N = 611

    Mean age, 63 years

    Male 332, (55%)

    Total mortality was 87 patients (14%) during study time

    But

    249 of 611 patients studied

    Of the 249, 21 (8%) died

    Baseline zinc levels

    Died, (21 people) mean plasma zinc = 43 μg/dl

    Survived, (228 people) mean plasma zinc = 63.1 μg/dl

    Higher zinc levels, associated with lower maximum levels of interleukin-6 during the period of active infection

    Zinc level lower than 50 μg/dl at admission, 2.3 times increased risk of in-hospital death

    Compared with those of 50 μg/dl or higher

    Lower zinc levels at admission correlate with higher inflammation in the course of infection and poorer outcome

    Low plasma zinc levels at admission are associated with mortality in COVID-19 in our study

    Further studies are needed to assess the therapeutic impact of this association

    COVID-19: Poor outcomes in patients with zinc deficiency (International Journal of Infectious Diseases, November 2020)

    Chennai, India

    Prospective study of fasting zinc levels in COVID-19 patients at the time of hospitalization

    Healthy controls median 105.8 μg/dl



    Zinc is a trace element with potent immunoregulatory and antiviral properties

    Is utilized in the treatment of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)

    Patients with serious COVID-19 had significantly low zinc levels in comparison to healthy controls

    Zinc deficient COVID patients developed more complications

    Zinc deficient patients 70.4% developed complications

    Non zinc deficient patients, 30.0% developed complications, (p = 0.009)

    Acute respiratory distress syndrome

    More need of steroids

    Increased mortality

    Zinc deficient COVID patients had a prolonged hospital stay

    Zinc deficient patients, 7.9 days

    Non zinc deficient patients, 5.7 days, (p = 0.048)

    In vitro studies

    Reduced zinc levels increase SARS-CoV-2 virus receptor interactions

    Increased zinc levels inhibit ACE2 expression




    What zinc does

    Catalytic activity of approximately 100 enzymes

    Plays a role in immune function

    Protein synthesis

    Wound healing

    DNA synthesis

    Cell division

    Normal growth and development, pregnancy, childhood, adolescence

    Required for sense of taste and smell

    Zinc and immunity

    Severe zinc deficiency depresses immune function

    Even mild to moderate degrees of zinc deficiency can impair macrophage and neutrophil functions, natural killer cell activity, and complement activity

    Body requires zinc to develop and activate T-lymphocytes

    Low zinc levels have shown reduced lymphocyte proliferation

    …. that can be corrected by zinc supplementation

    Low zinc status has been associated with increased susceptibility to pneumonia and other infections in children in developing countries and the elderly

    Foods
    Oysters
    Sea food
    Beef
    Pork
    Baked beans
    Fortified cereals
    Pumpkin seeds
    Yogurt
    Cashew nuts
    Chickpeas
    Oats
    Almonds

    Vitamin D and zinc can be made in bulk for essentially nothing

  • How to get monoclonal antibody therapy for COVID-19 before severe symptoms set in

    2:45

    Monoclonal antibody therapy, one of the few treatments for COVID-19 is becoming more widely available, but not everybody is aware of where and when to get the treatment and they qualify.

    President Donald Trump received the treatment during his stay at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. But the treatment is also available to those in the Tampa Bay Area who may be susceptible to severe illness from COVID-19.

  • Could Vitamin D Help Fight COVID-19?

    50:29

    My opinion is that you keep the correct levels of vitamin D in your body. Now a days, due to staying indoors, it is possible that you will develop the deficiency of vitamin D. Get this checked by your doctor and use the correct dose to stay healthy.

    Looking to support my work? Here is the link to donate:

    Here are my notes:
    Daily 10 microgram or 400 IU/Day

    Lippincott’s Biochemistry Review 4th Edition. Page 388
    Daily 5 mg of cholecalciferol or 200 IU of Vitamin D.

    However, 800 IU/Day is shown to reduce the incidence of osteoporotic fractures.
    800 IU/Day recommended by the Institute of Medicine to maintain bone health.

    Frank deficiency is when the levels of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (25OHD) is less than 20 ng/mL (50 mmol/L)


    No consensus that the oral vitamin D supplements are helpful

    Ergocalciferol from plants is called Vitamin D2
    Cholecalciferol from the animal tissue is called Vitamin D3

    7 deidro-cholesterol to (UV light) to cholecalciferol (D3) to 25 hydroxylase in liver to 25 OH D to -hydroxycholecalciferol 1-hydroxylase in kidney to 1,25 DiOH D3




    Vitamin D Receptors are abbreviated to VDR in the notes. These are cytosolic receptors.


    Deficiency of vitamin D makes people more susceptible to respiratory tract infections.
    Vitamin D supplement can reduce these infections by 12%
    Keep in mind, this is for those who are deficient in this vitamin. If you are not deficient, then it will not make a difference. Because, you are already good.
    Evidence is not sufficient to say that vitamin D helps prevent respiratory infections.

    2018 Study

    People with autoimmune diseases commonly have hypovitaminosis D

    What are cathelicidins?


    What are beta defensins?



    2011 Study


    Activation of TLR and PAMPs on macrophages increases the production of 1, alpha hydroxylase and the VDR. This in turn causes more production of cathelicidine and beta defensins 4.

    Vitamin D also affects monocytes to reduce production of IL1, IL6, IL8, IL12, and TNF. Regulating the immune response.

    Vitamin D acts on the dendritic cells to inhibit/reduce their differentiation and maturation. It reduces their MHCII expression, co-stimulatory molecules like CD40, CD80, CD86, decreased production of IL-12 etc.

    2013 Study

    Vitamin D improves immune system by helping produce cathelicidine and by helping modulate inflammatory cascade. Especially for the respiratory infections.
    It also helps produce NFk-B (nuclear factor kappa light chain for activated B cells.)

    (
    Notes about the NFkB

    Helps with cytokine production and cell survival.
    NFk-B factor becomes active when T and B cell receptors become active. Its activation causes the gene expressions that allow T cell development, maturation, and proliferation.
    T and B cells have Vitamin D receptors that help them produce NFk-B
    )

    Continuing the notes from the study:
    In pulmonary infections. Lung epithelial cells are able to convert inactive vitamin D to its active form. This active Vitamin D then helps produce cathelicidine. Which helps kill the pathogens.

    Vitamin D seems to favor TH2 and TH17 cell activation which is anti-inflammatory profile.
    Vitamin D seems to reduce the activation of TH1 cells which are pro inflammatory by their IFN-gamma action.
    A deficiency of vitamin D may dysregulate the inflammatory response of the body.

    Vitamin B also increases the IkBa. This leads to inhibition of NFkB. This helps reduce the production of IL6 and IL8 by inhibiting the production of NFkB. ...

  • COVID-19 Pandemic Update 101: T Cell Immunity vs. Antibodies & Prior Exposure to Other Coronaviruses

    16:26

    The relationship between antibodies for the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and immunity, vaccine efficacy, and spread of COVID-19 has received significant attention. Dr. Seheult is back to illustrate why T cells have received less attention than antibodies, but may be more important to long term immunity from COVID-19. Dr. Seheult also discusses how previous infections with common coronaviruses may provide some immunity to SARS-CoV-2, and the hypothesis that reducing the inoculum (initial dose) of SARS-CoV-2 might result in less symptom severity (This video was recorded August 10, 2020).

  • CORONAVIRUS DIAGNOSIS! Real Doctor Explains What To Do if You Are Sick With COVID-19

    10:06

    CORONAVIRUS DIAGNOSIS! Real Doctor Explains What To Do if You Are Sick With COVID-19. Real Doctor Explains COVID-19 at Home Treatment Plan — Mild Coronavirus Symptoms Recovery Tips.

    Doctor Jordan Wagner explains what to do if you get covid 19 and how to treat mild covid 19 symptoms at home. Coronavirus treatment update and covid treatment protocol — things you can do if you have coronavirus symptoms. If you are caring for someone with COVID-19 at home or in a non-healthcare setting, follow this advice to protect yourself and others. Learn what to do when someone has symptoms of COVID-19 or when someone has been diagnosed with the virus. Recognizing day to day signs and symptoms of coronavirus is important. There's a lot of discussion surrounding COVID test, COVID-19 vaccine, and more. It’s hard to escape news on the coronavirus and get sucked in by the latest updates. If you have coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and you're caring for yourself at home or you're caring for a loved one with COVID-19 at home, you might have questions. How do you know when emergency care is needed and to go to the hospital? How long should you quarantine? In this video Doctor Wagner shares home care tips for patients with mild COVID-19 symptoms. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19: fever, cough, shortness of breath fatigue, and loss of taste. Covid treatment in hospital is different than at home. Doctors at the hospital are prescribing monoclonal antibodies by companies Eli Lilly and Regeneron and antiviral medication remdesivir for COVID-10. Monoclonal antibodies are an antibody made by cloning a white blood cell. Some of the medications and treatments you might use to treat colds and flu will also help with mild coronavirus symptoms. Doctor Jordan Wagner is always sharing his experience coping with the COVID-19 pandemic and what he's learned first hand treating COVID-19 patients in 2021.

    COVID 19 from Home - Vitamin D, Zinc, Quercetin

    This video will discuss why zinc, quercetin, vitamin C and D, and n-acetyl cysteine and melatonin have been suggested as potential prophylaxis and even treatment for early symptoms of COVID 19.

    *Discussion in this video is for educational purposes only. Any medical or medication decisions should be first discussed with your doctor.

    Vitamin D and COVID 19


    Right now, for early COVID 19 infections, it is mostly supportive therapies just like for any common colds: bed rest, drinking plenty of fluids, aspirin and acetaminophen, cough, and cold syrups.

    Zinc is an essential mineral thought to improve immune function, cardiovascular health, control blood sugar, slow macular degeneration, and fight acne. Zinc is found in oysters, chicken, red meat, and fortified breakfast cereals. While whole food sources are the ways to get zinc, there is evidence that supplemental zinc can aid your immune system.

    Research has shown that oral zinc formulations may shorten the duration of common cold symptoms, especially due to rhinovirus directly inhibiting viral replication. In addition, your body requires zinc to develop and activate T-cells, and decreased zinc levels have been associated with depressed immune function.

    Quercetin is a plant pigment that is believed to have anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antiviral activities, and inhibition of pro-inflammatory mediators. It is also an ionophore meaning it creates a channel in the cell to allow zinc in.

    Vitamin C exerts its antiviral properties by supporting lymphocyte activity, increasing the production of interferon-α, modulating cytokines, reducing inflammation,

    Glutathione also acts as a free radical scavenger in the body. It has been suggested that elderly adults have decreased glutathione levels, leaving them susceptible to COVID 19 inflammation oxidative stress.

    N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is a precursor of glutathione, described as “the master antioxidant,” Some studies show that NAC can increase glutathione levels. For example, an FDA-approved inhaled version of NAC called Mucomyst, which we used to decrease mucus's viscosity in patients in the hospital.

    Melatonin exerts regulatory actions on the immune system. It directly enhances the immune response by improving the proliferation and maturation of natural killing cells, T and B lymphocytes, granulocytes, and monocytes in the bone marrow and other tissues.

    Besides sleep disorders, melatonin has been used to treat delirium, atherosclerosis, respiratory diseases, and viral infections. In regards to viral infections, melatonin has anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and immunomodulating properties.

  • N-Acetylcysteine And COVID-19: How Does NAC Work/Efficacy In 10 Patients With Severe COVID-19

    15:27

    In this video we will discuss N-Acetylcysteine or NAC. We will talk about NAC and its role in glutathione synthesis, as well as its utility for free oxygen radicals and superoxide species. We will transition in to how this mechanism may be efficacious in COVID-19. After that, we will dive into a case series where 10 patients were treated for severe COVID-19 with NAC. They initially started it in the first patient as a treatment for hydroxychloroquine-induced hemolysis in the setting of G6PD Deficiency. They observed that this patient's inflammatory markers decreased after starting NAC, went back up after stopping NAC, and decreased again after re-starting NAC. After observing this they then went and gave 9 additional patients intravenous NAC and observed their clinical progression. All of these patients were critically ill on VA ECMO. At the time of study completion, 8 of the 10 had been discharged and the other 2 were still hospitalized. What does this mean? Check out the video for all the details!

  • Can Supplements Prevent and Treat COVID 19 | Vitamin D, Vitamin C, and Zinc

    7:37

    Can supplements prevent or treat COVID 19? I review current data on Vitamin C, Zinc, and Vitamin D. Unfortunately for two of these, data is lacking in supporting their use for prevention or treatment. Vitamin D however does show some potential. More studies are needed before making any definitive claims however.

    In full disclosure, I do take vitamin C and Vitamin D daily. They can't hurt right? As long as you don't take too much that is.

  • Inside SGMC’s COVID-19 Treatment Center: Over 300 monoclonal antibodies infusions given - WALB

    2:40

    By Jennifer Morejon
    Published: Aug. 9, 2021 at 6:56 PM EDT | Updated: 12 hours ago
    VALDOSTA, Ga. (WALB) - COVID-19 patients can also receive what’s called monoclonal antibody treatment.

    They say the infusion helps lessen symptoms and improve recovery.

    We’re told nearly 300 people have received the infusion since Wednesday.

    “We’re seeing sicker patients every day that are requiring hospitalizations,” said Randy Smith Chief Nursing and Operating Officer.

    As the new COVID-19 wave began to unfold in South Georgia, Smith says the Emergency Department at SGMC was getting packed.

    So they established the COVID-19 Treatment Center.

    “One of the challenges that you have is trying to prevent hospitalizations. So, we were seeing a fair amount of patients that were presenting mild to moderate symptoms. These again were often time unvaccinated patients,” said Smith.

    Monoclonal antibodies are an alternative tool to help the hospital battle the surge.

    They are laboratory-made proteins mimicking the immune system’s ability to fight off harmful antigens, like viruses.

    The one used on COVID-19 patients is specifically designed against it.

    It helps block the virus’ attachment and entry into human cells.

    The 20-minute infusion, Smith says, has proven to speed up recovery with little to no symptoms.

    “It’s to keep hospitalization down, but it’s designed to prevent the progression of the disease,” said Smith.

    To qualify, patients must:

    Have mild to moderate symptoms
    Be 12 years old or older
    Weigh over 88 pounds
    Have proof of a positive test within 10 days
    Have a risk factor.

    SGMC has been giving an average of 48 daily.

    Receiving the treatment in the early stage is ideal.

    South Georgia Medical Center reopened up a drive-thru testing site on Monday. The drive is open Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and appointments aren’t required.

    The hospital reports 19 to 29 years olds are testing positive the most, in the past five days, and 30 to 39 years olds fall behind them.

    Over the past week, the hospital has seen an increase in COVID-19 vaccinations.

    At their weekend drive-thru event at Smith Northview campus, they vaccinated more than 400 people.

    Health leaders ask you to avoid misinformation and get facts from trusted professionals.
