Only about 7% of patients are recovered... let's get that number higher

So let’s start with some data… only about 7% of people are mostly recovered. Data on Long COVID and post vax patients below:

Video: What worked for 27 people who recovered - Feb 2023
See slide 4:

So let’s recap some potential ways that we might get that number higher.

:point_right: Disclamer: please keep in mind that this data is fully reliable. We don’t have amazing research to base our decisions on. So, please know that some of the stuff in this post is somewhat on the experimental side. However, some of it may be more reasonable than going through the conventional medical system. With that out of the way, let’s get into potential reasons why recovery rates are low

1 - HBOT is the most proven treatment

In case you missed it, HBOT is one of the few treatments where a RCT found a benefit.

2 - Most people aren’t trying the most effective treatments

Survey data showed the strong signal for 6 different treatments. Most people haven’t tried them.

  • Ivermectin - only 23.7% tried this
  • Black seed oil - 16.3% - in the oil form, which is a supermarket food
  • HCQ - 6.9%
  • Extended fasting - 5.3% (*One can argue that people gave up early, so here’s the data for 24-48 hour fasting - 10.7%)
  • HBOT above 1.5ATA - 7.9% ← expensive, which limits accessibility
  • Statins - 14.2%

3 - Higher dosages may be needed?

Nigella sativa oil / black seed oil only helped people recover when it was in the oil form but not capsules are as seed (which are usually taken at much lower dosages). Unfortunately, higher dosages also come with higher risk (e.g. black seed oil can interact with anesthesia used during surgery).

4 - Recognize that treatment can set you back???

This topic is very unclear at the moment. However, some anecdotes and other pieces of evidence suggest that treatment is causing long-lasting worsening in some patients. It may be possible that (A) starting with low dosages and (B) quitting early may minimize the chance of that happening. It’s usually the more prudent path to take when it comes to medical experimentation.

5 - Antimicrobials are worth trying???

A lot of people will fail the top treatments. For the people who just don’t respond to treatment, it’s possible (but far from proven) that other antimicrobials offer a shot at recovery.

The video below has some ideas on antimicrobials:

Please contribute your data

We need to pool our experiences together so that we can get more data on what’s working and what’s not.

We really need to find more treatments because we know that the top treatments identified so far won’t work for many people. If you are able to, please send 5-10 minutes filling out the survey below:

The march ahead


We are stronger than we think because there is strength in unity.
By pooling our data together, we can start figuring out the medical mysteries and we’ll be able to identify more treatments that can be useful tools in the fight against chronic illness.

We know that some people are recovering. With more data on what works and what doesn’t, we can really push towards real recovery and see more people get their lives back.
