Dilute Povidone-Iodine Nasal/Oral Washes for the Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19

by | Dec 30, 2021 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is transmitted in the air and settles in the nose, and multiplies for days before it invades the body. When sick with nasal congestion, headache, fever, and body aches, the source of symptoms is the virus in the nose.

The virus must be killed in the nasal cavity at least twice a day after coming back home for prevention and up to every four hours during active treatment. This is very important with the Omicron variant, which multiplies 70 times faster than the prior strains of the virus.

Early treatment using this approach is associated with a 71% improvement, as shown in the figure. Also shown is a quick set up at home with povidone-iodine, which costs under $10 a bottle online.

Take 1/2 tsp mix in a shot glass 1.5 oz of water, squirt up nose, sniff back to the back of the throat and spit out. Do twice in each nostril, then gargle with the rest for 30 sec. Do not swallow. If iodine allergic or intolerant, can substitute hydrogen peroxide.

 

Dr. Peter McCullough

Dr. Peter McCullough is an internist, cardiologist, epidemiologist, managing the cardiovascular complications of both the viral infection and the injuries developing after the COVID-19 vaccine in Dallas, TX, USA. Since the outset of the pandemic, Dr. McCullough has been a leader in the medical response to the COVID-19 disaster and has published “Pathophysiological Basis and Rationale for Early Outpatient Treatment of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Infection,” the first synthesis of sequenced multidrug treatment of ambulatory patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the American Journal of Medicine and subsequently updated in Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine.

He has 51 peer-reviewed publications on the infection and has commented extensively on the medical response to the COVID-19 crisis in The Hill, America Out Loud, and on FOX NEWS Channel. On November 19, 2020, Dr. McCullough testified in the US Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and throughout 2021 in the Texas Senate Committee on Health and Human Services, Colorado General Assembly, New Hampshire Senate, and South Carolina Senate concerning many aspects of the pandemic response.

Dr. McCullough has two years of dedicated academic and clinical efforts in combating the SARS-CoV-2 virus. In doing so, he has reviewed thousands of reports, participated in scientific congresses, group discussions, press releases, and been considered among the world’s experts on COVID-19.

What’s a safe and alternative virucidal rinse for a pregnant women and what’s the appropriate ratio of dilution; I rarely hear specifics for pregnancy other than hydroxychloroquine is safe,but I’d like ratios for a safe nasal rinse or even clarification of safety of quercetin in pregnancy ! I hear recommendations often but no specifics for this population and I wish pregnant women were hilighted more. I’m also curious about overall at home treatment for pregnancy, what do we do?

Nature amps up the immunity for pregnant women to protect the forming baby. Doctors have recommended prevention such as staying away from crowds whenever possible, keep positive. See the writeup compiled by doctors here: https://worldcouncilforhealth.org/resources/covid-19-and-pregnancy-guidance-for-healthy-moms-and-babies/#pass-to-baby

Rinsing allows the liquid to drain out so it should not be too much of a concern unless you have hyperthyroidism. Alternatives to povidone-iodine are: Betadine Carageenan nasal spray; XClear Xylitol nasal spray especially the one with thyme. Use only on increased risk of exposure or it may cause too much dryness which is counter productive.

Quercetin is not well studied for pregnancies due to ethical reasons. A 2011 study in rats found a possible increase in iron accumulation that may manifest in baby’s adulthood. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22064046/

Nebulise 
Normal Saline (0.9% salt)
Dissolve 4.5grms (1tspn) Himalayan salt to 1 pint RO water =(0.9%)

Add 3/4tspn of (12%)Food grade peroxide into the 1pt of normal saline

This creates  0.1% of hydrogen peroxide dilute in normal saline

Add 1 drop of Lugos 5% iodine

You are correct. 1 part 35% h2o2 mixed with 11 parts water would dilute to 2.92% h2o2. Here is how the calculation works. It’s a simple division problem. The numerator being the top number and the denominator being the bottom number. The numerator is the percent of h2o2. In this example 35%, so ’35’. The denominator is the total number of ‘parts’, in this case 1 part h202 + 11 parts water equals 12 total parts. The math problem is 35 (numerator) divided by 12 (denominator) = 2.92%

No, just regular 3% hydrogen peroxide. Dr McCullough said 3/4 teaspoon 3% hydrogen peroxide in 1.5oz water. Add a pinch of sea salt (any salt with no additives) to make it more tolerable. You can use this as nasal rinse and gargle, just the same as the povidone iodine solution.

My doctor recommended saline solution (1 cup of distilled water with 1 tsp kosher salt). He recommended a ratio of either 2 to 1 (saline solution to 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide–get on Amazon) in the nebulizer cup or even as low as 4 parts ss to 1 part peroxide if the higher ratio bothers your tissues. I keep the cup of saline in the fridge-covered for a few days and mix it as I use it. They also advise the following on Iodine.
*Gargling with peroxide iodine mixture may help at first sign of sore throat-cold [In Vitro Bactericidal and Virucidal Efficacy of Povidone-Iodine Gargle/Mouthwash Against Respiratory and Oral Tract Pathogens – PubMed (nih.gov)]
*Lugol’s Iodine 5 drops in saline can be substituted or added to peroxide.

It’s a complete damn shame that these doctors/other voices cannot simplify this SH%#! And its the same with Ivermetin; they get on various podcast and tout how they themselves use and treat others with Ivermectin yet when you visit these/their websites, it’s an absolute con/maze trying to get this Ivermectin from them. That or they markup the price so high that one throws their hands to the clouds. It all seems to be a con game from both sides in this Covid 19/Omicron Flu fiasco.

It doesn’t matter if your store carries 1% or 10% povidone iodine. It needs to be diluted to 0.5% when you use it.

You need a 1% solution but it’s been sold out when I searched. But you can get 10% P.I. in the drugstore and even in the Dollar General. Basically you just add 1 part of the 10% Iodine to 9 parts purified water (a part is anything you want to use as a measure – 1/2 tsp., 1 tsp., whatever). I boiled filtered water and put my solution in a nasal spray top bottle.
This is copied directly from the IMask+ Protocol:

To make 1 % povidone/iodine concentrated solution from 10 % povidone/iodine solution, it must be diluted first.

One dilution method is as follows:

– First pour 1 ½ tablespoons (25 ml) of 10 % povidone/iodine solution into a nasal irrigation bottle of 250 ml.

– Then fill to top with distilled, sterile or previously boiled water.

– Tilt head back, apply 4–5 drops to each nostril. Keep tilted for a few minutes, let drain.

NEED CLARIFICATION as a half teaspoon (0.5 tsp) of ten percent (10%) povidone iodine seems like a lot when mixed in the recommended 1.5 ounces of water….

And for the hydrogen peroxide, the 1:3 ratio of standard off the shelf, is that one tablespoon (1T) mixed with the 1.5 ounces of water? That stung a little bit…

You’re right, he says 1/2 teaspoon of 10% povidone iodine in 1.5oz waterbut if it stings, dilute it more.. And yes, 1 part 3% hydrogen peroxide to 3 parts water can still sting a bit. I’ve done 1:1 and that really smarts! Only did it because I was getting some crud, it worked but I wouldn’t recommend that. 1:4 is most tolerable. A Dr. Thomas Levy is a guru on all things nebulized hydrogen peroxide. He recommends less dilution but I was getting a slight bloody nose on what he recommends, so I cut it down a lot.

When mixed as he’s stated, whether it’s for single use or to mix a larger amount, the over the counter povidone iodine you can purchase at most places is 10%. Use 1/2 teaspoon in 1.5oz water which gives you sufficiently diluted povidone iodine. I use 6oz sterilized or bottled water, 2 teaspoons of 10% povidone iodine, 1/2 teaspoon pure salt (sea salt or any salt with no additives). Spray up each nostril a couple times, snort it back, spit out whatever drains into throat. Then gargle for about 15 seconds. For gargling, you may use regular Scope or Listerine with natural oils. Go to FLCCC for more info.

NetiPot:
In 8 ounces of BOILED water that has been cooled down, I add and dissolve 1/4 teaspoon of Neti salt and 1/2 teaspoon of 10% povidone iodine. That is a 1:10 ratio of iodine to water, or 1%.

I’d have to think a Neti rinse is much more effective than a bulb squirter, as the disinfecting water flows up one nostril, through the sinuses and comes back down the other nostril, pushing out globs of snot, if there is any. Nothing beats nasal congestion like a NetiPot.

I’m not a doctor, and I don’t pretend to be one in real life; but this is what I do.

Forget boiling; warm up distilled water in microwave for 20 secs. Put the solution in a shallow dish and snort it up your nose. Forget the Neti pots or bulb syringes. This is a nasal/sinus cleansing routine that is spoken of in old health books from the 1800s.

I have been snorting and cleansing my nasal passages for decades; hardly ever catch cold or flu — like 1x every 6-7 years. I’ve been using salt in warm distilled water — even a little cayenne pepper, sometimes add baking soda. Now I’m using the iodine solution — in 1sp in 6 oz distilled water, and I like to warm it up a little. No discomfort to this method and is very good at pulling out the — pardon me — snot and mucous. Thank you Dr. McCullough!

I think the formula for making the iodine mixture is unclear. Most Povodine iodines, or all that I’ve seen, are 10%. And most “recipes” use 1% Is that what is being called for here? 1/2 teaspoon of 1% or 10%? There’s a huge difference. Also, what is an easy way to make a 1% solution? i’ve never been able to get past that step to make my solution.

If you use Betadine Iodine, it contains 10% providine iodine, but the label states that it’s only 1% available iodine. So follow Dr. McCullough instructions. I used 1.5 oz distilled water with 1/2 tsp Betadine Iodine & a pinch of Celtic sea salt.

Using 1/2 tsp of the 10% povodine iodine product, to 1.5 oz. of water will net you a 1.67% solution. Dr. McCullough says they’ve found that as little as a 0.5% solution has been found to work. He also says that if it doesn’t sting, then your percentage is not too high.

I’m pretty sure he said if it DOES STING, the percentage is too high. A tsp is 5 ml, an ounce is 30 ml. Use a calculator (probably one one your phone…) and do the math. If it stings, just rinse it with more dilute.

It sounds like this could be used as part of the normal water fill in a Navage machine, and that would presumably be far more effective than a simple “squirt up the nose”, although the chance of swallowing would probably be greater.

I survived COVID-19 a year ago. Jumped on hydroxychloroquine the first day of symptoms. Had Z pack and zinc and vitamin D three. Fought it like a boss.

Find a Doctor Who is willing to make a plan and come up with a combination protocol. It made all the difference that as soon as I had the first symptom I started the protocol. My husband got sick sooner had harder time ; started protocol later but did quite well considering he was at extremely high risk. We both have strong antibodies.

Dr. McCullough, I think you’re great and doing a great service, but please explain what the evidence for a pathogenic virus making people sick is. Please read the virology papers, note that no virus has been isolated from a sick person or shown to be contagious. Look at the work of Stefan Lanka. Something is making some people sick, and maybe the H2O2 irrigation helps, but how and why? It’s not killing imaginary viruses. Of that I’m sure. Maybe it’s helping co-infection with pathogenic bacteria. Bacteria clean up dead/dying tissue, and with the toxins in the air, respiratory issues are common. But this is very different from “viral infection,” which hasn’t been shown to exist.

I would also like to know if this is the same ratio to use if pregnant or if this is even recommended for pregnant women. Also what is the ratio for children?

I’m wondering if this also works for colds and flu? I already had Covid and from what Dr. McCollough says, you cannot get Covid twice, or at least there is no evidence of that. So would this also help if you have been exposed to someone with cold or flu symptoms as well?
If so,
What would be the “recipe” for using the Neti pot with Hydrogen Peroxide. And what kind of Hydrogen Peroxide? Does it need to be food grade or can you use your typical 3% hydrogen peroxide (one that can is also used for gargling, only ingredients are 3% hydrogen peroxide and purified water)
Any information is appreciated
Thank you

If you listen to doctor McCullough’s recent podcasts this new covid strain omnicron has seen breakthrough infections in people that have taken the Jab and people with natural immunity!!!

When you say Dr. McCollough says you cannot get covid more than once, I believe you’re referring to his comment in his Joe Rogan interview. That was confusing to many as most all of us know that you certainly can get covid more than once. Dr. Malone made a clarification to Dr. McCollough’s comment in Dr. Malone’s interview with Joe Rogan. He said that Dr. McCollough called him and asked him to tell the Joe Rogan audience he meant you cannot get the same variant more than once. So if you had delta, you most certainly can get omicron.

I had delta in August. My hubs just had omicron after Christmas. On the 3rd night together post his onset of symptoms, I had milder symptoms like he was having (night sweats, mild fever, and joint aches) for 1-2 nights. All in all, I was able to care for him and not break stride.

Based on Dr. McCullough’s formula, I mixed one teaspoon of the 10
percent Povidine Iodine solution to 6 tablespoons of water. I’m no math scholar, so somebody correct me if I’m wrong.

Well here is an alternative option and it worked well for me. I snorted activated carbon or charcoal. I basically was cured in 48 hours. I’m no doctor I just tell it as it was. It happened and I had a major lung problems I could not lay down. I was taking the activated carbon and went into a coughing fit so accidentally inhaled it and blew it out my nose. One tiny capsule is all it took.

Listerine mouthwash can be diluted and has been used as a nasal rinse by some apparently, for those who cannot get betadine.
Food grade rosewater has antiviral / antibacterial properties but I don’t know anyone who has used it as a nasal rinse!

Do not use tap water unless you have boiled it and cooled it. Distilled or purified is fine.

Please kindly advise if 1. quercitin 2. Zinc (25 or50) are safe to be taken for the elderly with renal failure ( only one kidney that works 50%). Please. Also advise if NAC is safe too…. As it is perfect for releasing the mucosa. Thank you. 🌹 Rose

Can we use few drops of Betadine Iodine in the water to be used with Vicks Steam Inhaler ?

Usually when we feel like having a cold symptoms or similar, we use steam inhaler with regular water and that has always helped.

Hi Dr. McCullough! I made this mixture based on your video as soon as I saw it. My hubby recently had a heart attack and I won’t let him get the vaccine 😁 but I want him safe so this seemed perfect! We use it all the time but does this solution/mixture have a shelf life? I’ve had this batch for about 3 weeks, should I make new?

Is it OK to netti Pot this solution instead of squirt it up your nose?? I swear I read another article by him and it said a 1% solution of povidone iodine. So I have put 1/4 tsp. in my netti pot with distilled water and salt and used that..

Considering that they still have never isolated and purified a sample of the original COVID-19 virus to establish a baseline, how is it that they can determine any deviation from it to define any kind of “variant”?

Wouldn’t it be more proper to refer to them as booster 1 variant, booster 2 variant etc.?

Dr. McCullough stated in a recent Q&A that regular 3/4 teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide in 1.5oz water can be substituted for the povidone iodine solution. Add a pinch of salt (sea salt/salt with no additives) to make it a bit more tolerable. Also for gargle, if you don’t want to use the povidone iodine or peroxide solutions, use regular Scope or Listerine with natural oils. All of this info is available on FLCCC site.

I have Lugol’s “Solution 2% USP/Distilled Water 94%/Potassium Iodide 4%/Iodine 2%” (words from label). I have been using it with H202 in a nebulizer for relief of cold/Covid symptoms (full sinuses, lots of mucous).

I have ordered Povidone 10% iodine but it may be 2 weeks before I get it. What should be dilution for nebulizer? I’m not sure my recipe is strong enough: 1 oz. saline solution, 1/4 oz. H2O2, 1 drop iodine. Nebulize 10-15 minutes.

Also, what recipe for NetiPot?

Edicts Gone Wild – Statehouses, City Halls, Kingdoms or Oligarchies?

When the CDC’s data shows that children under 5 are less than 3% of the cases and have a statistically zero percent death rate, I wonder what experts Secretary Becerra has been consulting. And since these mandates reduce parental involvement, along with social, educational, and health quality, I think the Secretary has missed the boat on this one…

Americans are Experiencing the Toxic Taste of Socialism in 2022

Top leaders entrusted to protect our safety and liberties have turned blind eyes to the lawlessness that advances their political agenda narratives, condoned neo-Marxist indoctrination of children, and weaponized police state intimidation of those who resist. President Ronald Reagan issued an urgent reminder that “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”

Studies Show Horrific Contaminations of PCR Test Swabs

This swab appears to have a fiberglass coating. This, of course, could rip, cut, and tear flesh, causing bleeding. Broken pieces could become lodged in the nose causing infection. This additional study concludes that material and chemical abnormalities in the material at the tip of the swab are likely responsible for damage to the nasal passage, resulting in bleeding and other injuries…

The Electric Vehicle Scam

The Electric Vehicle Scam

In order to match the 2,000 cars that a typical filling station can service in a busy 12 hours, an EV charging station would require 600, 50-watt chargers at an estimated cost of $24 million and a supply of 30 megawatts of power from the grid. That is enough to power 20,000 homes. It can take 30 minutes to 8 hours to recharge a vehicle between empty or just topping off. What are the drivers doing during that time?

Is the new Paxlovoid pill just a “reworked” ivermectin? What do you think of the data? Love the show. My question is, is it safe to take the provolone iodine with hypothyroid? There is a history of heart disease in my husband’s family so the thought of my boys getting any vac scares me, especially since I have 3 teenage sons. Will there be a ‘safe’ alternative? Will Novovax or Covax be safer?

Will Omicron Become Nature’s Miracle Vaccine?

Will Omicron Become Nature’s Miracle Vaccine?

After nearly two years into this pandemic, with the U.S. reporting a record high of more than 1 million new COVID-19 cases earlier this month, many are wondering when a sufficient number of the population will reach a level of “herd immunity” so that the virus can no longer find a place to reproduce. Might omicron actually be a blessing…
