By Dr. Glenn Wilcox, D.O.M., M.Sc.
As I write this article, we are in the midst of the greatest global healthcare/social/economic experiment in history – the COVID-19 “Shelter in place!” quarantine. In this article I will present simple, highly effective tools for wisely managing your health during your journey through this pandemic, and any other viral flu infection that may come your way.
A virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipid (fat). When the COVID-19 virus is absorbed by the mucosal cells of the eye, nose or mouth, it mutates or changes the cells’ genetic code and converts the cells into aggressor and multiplier cells. A virus is not a living organism but a protein molecule. It is not killed, but decays on its own. The disintegration time of the virus depends on the temperature, humidity and type of material where it lies. The virus is very fragile; the only thing that protects it is a thin outer layer of fat. That is why washing hands with soap is a great remedy; the soap foam dissolves the fat in about 20 seconds. By dissolving the fat layer, the protein molecule breaks down on its own. Also, an alcohol mixture above 65% dissolves the external lipid layer of the virus. As well, heat such as hot water for washing or even fever melts the fat layer.
COVID-19 Self Care
- Know where your hands are.
- Do not touch your face.
- Carry hand sanitizer (at least 65% alcohol) and use it after you touch anything outside your home.
- The most common means of transmission is touching something with the virus on it and then touching your face.
- Breathing, coughing and sneezing are also a means of transmission.
- Maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet.
- Wear a mask so you don’t touch your face and also have some protection from air born particles carrying the virus from another infected person. An N95 mask is good but not essential. Any mask or even a scarf or bandana helps.
- Never touch the side of the mask that is next to your face before putting it on.
- Quarantine paper face masks for three days so that any virus on the mask will have disintegrated and you can reuse the mask.
What to Do if You Feel Sick
- If you feel sick, like getting a cold, isolate yourself for two days, and if you don’t get a fever, you can assume it’s just a cold and you don’t have COVID-19.
- If you develop a fever, continue to isolate yourself at home. The majority of people will have a fever and body aches and begin to feel better in 5 to 7 days.
- However, if you get short of breath, go to hospital to be evaluated. Most hospitals will send you home if you don’t have shortness of breath.
- I always recommend to my patients that they not use drugs to reduce fever and ease pain during a cold or flu such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) and NSAIDs such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) and celecoxib (Celebrex). Remember heat is one way the virus is disintegrated. Fever is your body doing its job. Don’t undermine that unless your fever gets to a dangerous level and approaches 105 F. You might feel really bad but let your body’s natural immune system work for you. You will get better faster and be healthier after the fever has naturally done its work.
Oxidative medicine includes the use of powerful healing substances such as hydrogen peroxide, ozone, high dose IV vitamin C, and ultraviolet blood irradiation. This has been an essential, effective part of my practice for two decades.
IV Hydrogen Peroxide
Intravenous hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) was first successfully used during the devastating 1918-1920 flu pandemic. Then it was forgotten until Charles Farr, MD, PhD, assisted by Dr. Maged who perfected the therapy in the 1990s. I began using Dr. Farr’s H2O2 IV H2O2 protocol in 2002 and in 2007 worked together with Dr. Maged for half a year at our clinic in Albuquerque. IV H2O2 is a powerful therapy for a variety of medical conditions and is especially effective for lung conditions. IV H2O2 can be dangerous if not performed properly. Find a doctor who is trained in the protocol developed by Dr. Farr.
Nebulized Hydrogen Peroxide
Nebulizing hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is perhaps the most powerful home care treatment you can do to eliminate COVID-19 virus and all other types of flu. This nebulized H2O2 protocol is a pearl of great value. This therapy was the inspiration of Frank Shallenberger, MD, one of my mentors in oxidative medicine, who also learned IV H2O2 therapy from Dr. Charles Farr. Not only will this protocol kill viruses, it can kill bacteria too. It also boosts your immune response and cell respiration – the production of ATP (energy) by the mitochondria (organelles) in the cells. As well, it will improve the elimination of cellular waste products. You can use it preventatively. Trust me, this is one of the best home care tools against the COVID-19 virus.
I compound the required H2O2 solution from pharmaceutical grade H2O2 and saline at my clinic. We also carry nebulizers. Call us at 505-771-4998 to purchase our complete kit containing everything you will need to protect yourself at home.

The effective use of ozone in a variety of medical protocols has evolved over the past five decades in countries around the world. Robert Rowen, M.D. first used ozone in the U.S. about three decades ago. He has been my mentor for two decades. My guiding principal during my four plus decade career has been invest wisely in the best teachers and the best equipment. In 2008, Dr. Rowen encouraged me to purchase the best ozone device available – the Zotzmann Ozon 2000. Trust me, it can do what other ozone devices cannot. And that makes all the difference with respect to effective results. Dr. Rowen travelled to Africa during the Ebola virus outbreak and used ozone to successfully treat that disease. Ozone is powerful medicine when used appropriately. Ozone can be administered in many ways. For viral infections, it can be administered at home as a nasal or rectal insufflation. In my clinic, I administer it intravenously. For several years I’ve been providing the 10 Pass Hyperbaric Ozone Treatment, which is the most effective way to eliminate the COVID-19 virus.

High Dose IV Vitamin C
Around the world, high dose vitamin C administered intravenously has proven to be one of the most effective treatments for patients infected with COVID-19. High dose IVC has been part of my practice for two decades. I use the well document protocol developed at The Riordan Clinic in Kansas. The vitamin C needs to be a minimum of 25 grams, but 50 grams is better, and can be administered at 75 grams. Your digestive system could not handle that much taken orally. It is important to do a G6PD blood test if more than 25 grams will be administered. This will rule out a genetic condition that a small percentage of people have. If you have it, high dose vitamin C can cause anemia.
Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation
Exposing human blood to ultraviolet light for the treatment of septicemia (systemic bacterial infection in the blood) was developed by Emmett K. Knott in the early 20th Century. It was exceptionally effective but was set aside after the development of antibiotics. About 3 decades ago it was rediscovered. I’ve used UV Blood Irradiation (UVBI) therapy in my practice for 2 decades and have found it to be effective for many conditions including viral infections. However, as I’ve stated before, the right equipment makes all the difference regarding successful results. Most doctors are doing UVBI with devices that just don’t have enough power. There is only one device I consider worth using and that is the Hemealumen invented by Gene Barnett and manufactured by his company Advanced Light Devices. It ranks with the original Knott UV device.
Homeopathic Flu Shot
I have specific homeopathic medicines made from natural substances for administration by intramuscular injection that are effective immune system enhancers to help prevent and improve your response to both bacterial and viral infections.
Augmented Activated Immune Injection
The AAII (Augmented Activated Immune Injection) was created by Hammed Ibraheem, M.D., Ph.D. who is my mentor. He is a world-class microscopist and parasitologist as well as the founder of the Eko University of Medicine and Health Sciences in Lagos, Nigeria, that is recognized as the best medical school in Africa. The AAII is made from an individual’s own blood serum to which other natural substances are added, processed and incubated. The AAII is perhaps the most powerful tool in my medical bag. It provides a huge boost to the immune system and to the cellular production of ATP (the energy molecule of life). I use the AAII for many health issues including systemic bacterial, viral, yeast and fungal infections. It will help resolve anemia and low white blood counts (lowered immunity).
Intestinal Parasite, Bacteria and Candida Yeast Diagnosis and Treatment
The foundation for the immune system is a healthy intestinal microbiome, the trillions of beneficial bacteria in the intestines that are essential for us to be alive and healthy. Medical scientists estimate that at least 70% of the human immune system is provided by the gut! If gut health is upset by the presence of parasite, bacterial or yeast infections, the entire immune system is undermined, your viral vulnerability increases and resolving systemic viral (or bacterial) problems is far more difficult and perhaps not possible. For four decades, I’ve specialized in successfully treating parasites and other invaders. I regularly send specimens of stool, blood, urine and sputum to Dr. Hammed Ibraheem at his lab at the Eko University of Medicine and Health Sciences for world-class diagnosis that is not available in the U.S. Once the infection has been identified I use the appropriate Eweje Plant JuiceSM to correct the problem.
Eweje Plant JuiceSM from Wise Medicine®
KKO is a botanical medicine made from the juices of wild crafted and organically grown plants native to equatorial Africa. It is formulated by the Pharmacognosy Department at Eko University. I use it in my protocol for bacterial infections of all sorts, including Lyme Disease, and for viral infections including regular flu and COVID-19, for which it is very effective.
Supplements to Enhance the Immune System and Fight the Infection
Whenever possible I use Biotics Research® dietary supplements. Trust me, I’ve done the behind-the-curtain research. No other manufacturer comes close the quality and effectiveness of this company’s products. Based on the research about what is working around the globe, here’s what I recommend for COVID-19.
Take the following Biotics Research products daily:
- Bio-D-Mulsion Forte: 4 drops a day (Vitamin D)
