Killing coronavirus on contact

Lynne McTaggart

Yesterday we held the first of four free webinars, Supercharge Yourself Against Coronavirus, and one of the three doctors we were interviewing revealed how a cheap and simple substance we can all get hold of can kill viruses like COVID-19.

The doctor was Dr Sarah Myhill, a general practitioner practicing out of rural Wales, who worked for the National Health Service for 20 years before setting up in private practice to concentrate more on the root cause of her patients’ illnesses, concentrating on diet, micronutrient status, allergies and lifestyle changes.
Dr Myhill is now one of the world’s experts in treating ME/chronic fatigue, but in her long practice she has seen and treated virtually every type of illness, many of them the result of infections.
The potent virus killer she was referring to is the cheap and simple Lugol’s iodine, so named because it was developed by the French doctor, J. G. A. Lugol, who first mixed iodine and potassium iodine in water with the intention of using it as a disinfectant.
To this day, this form of iodine is used as an antiseptic on patients and in operating rooms because it kills bugs of every description but in low doses is non-toxic to the body’s cells involved with healing.
‘Indeed, studies show it enhances healing,’ writes Dr. Myhill in her book The Infection Game – Life is an Arms Race. ‘This is why the surgeons love it. Skin painted with iodine before incision does not get infected and heals perfectly.’
Dr Myhill considers iodine one of the tools that has revolutionized her practice. ‘Like vitamin C it contact-kills all microbes. It is the only agent that is consistently active against gram positive and gram-negative bacteria, mycobacteria, spores, amoebic cysts, fungi, protozoa, yeasts, drug-resistant bacteria such as MRSA and viruses.’
The science bears this out.
After the outbreak of the MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) virus in the Middle East, scientists concluded that human-to-human transmission of the virus required close contact, which mainly occurred in healthcare settings. Doctors were keen to find a substance that could prevent such transmission.
A team from the Institute of Virology, Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology and the Philipps University of Marburg in Germany decided to carry out a study (Infect Dis Ther. 2015 Dec; 4(4): 491–501) using very low doses of iodine as a skin cleanser, a surgical scrub and a mouthwash gargle against two types of viruses: A Modified vaccinia virus Ankara (MVA) and the MERS virus.
In both instances, the team were able to inactivate levels of virus corresponding to more than 99.99 percent.
Other papers have noted that evidence shows that iodine has a generally a 99.99 percent virus-killing activity against a number of widespread and worrying viruses, including hepatitis A, SARS (Sudden Acute Respiratory Syndrome) coronavirus Enterovirus 71, Coxsackievirus A16 and, yes, influenza.
‘For over 60 years, povidone iodine formulations  [a more potent form of iodine than Lugol’s] have been shown to limit the impact and spread of infectious diseases,’ writes German virologist Maren Eggers (Infectious Diseases and Therapy, 2019; 8: 581-93).
Dr Myhill goes further: ‘There is no virus that is resistant to iodine.’
In fact, the World Health Organization includes iodine on its list of essential medicines.
The other interesting fact about iodine is that bugs don’t appear to have developed resistance to it, as they have to so many other disinfectants and antibiotics.
Lugol's Iodine Solution is usually taken transdermally — through the skin. It’s available in varying strengths. But Dr Myhill has two unique suggestions for coronavirus.
If you’re worried about catching coronavirus from the mailman or anyone else, she says, ‘Make up what I call iodine oil. Coconut also contact-kills COVID virus. If solid, soften some coconut oil and add 10 parts of coconut oil to 1 part of Lugol’s iodine. (Lugol’s comes in varying strengths, from 5 to 15 percent, but any strength will do.)  It will make a yellowly liquid paste.
‘With any foreign contact, rub a marble size amount into your hands, forearm and around your face,’ says Dr Myhill. ‘That will contact-kill the virus in a few seconds. And it will stick to your door handle, or car door and kill virus there too.’
If you’re worried that you’ve inhaled droplets or you’re showing signs of coronavirus, says Dr Myhill, ‘Use a salt pipe. This is simply a clay pot filled with sea salt that can be used as an inhaler.
‘Drizzle Lugol’s 15 percent iodine 1-4 drops (whatever is tolerated) into the mouthpiece – sniff this through the nose and exhale through the mouth. Keep going until the iodine smell is gone (about 20 sniffs).
‘Do this at least three times daily but as often as you can according to the severity of the infection. In the short term expect to see more catarrh as the body sweeps out the dead microbes.’
Dr Myhill has used this on a number of patients with serious respiratory infections and it has worked very swiftly to get them better.
Once again, we may not have to wait for antivirals or vaccines. Nature has provided us with a cheap and plentiful virus killer.

  1. Great info. Thank you very much. What about a few drops of lugols iodine in water and drinking it. Would that kill virus internally.

  2. Instead of buying different strength Lugol s can you just buy 15% and dilute to Various strengths with the distilled or purified water?

  3. Hi I have lugol's 3% iodine iodine - not 15% does this mean I just increase number of drops - I e 5 x 3% drops Is equivalent to one drop at 15% ???

  4. My dad was a vet and swore by iodine. You can still buy it off the shelf in Spain

  5. Hello from Nanaimo Canada: Does any type of iodine work. In Canada at my pharmacy they do not have the brand you talk about.. Please advise. A friends family has a case of Covid 19 I heard you speak here. Housing was provided for the homeless after the session you gave .

  6. I read this and went on line to order the Lugol's iodine, but didn't realize until afterwards that it is a 2% solution. I went back and looked and don't see a 5 to 15% solution. I am wondering if I increase the amount I use if this would be helpful.

  7. I have an under active thyroid and take 150 mg of leveroxcin per day, should l steer away from iodine, l get so many mixed messages about taking it with thyroid problems.

  8. Thanks for the above info on taking Iodine for Corona Virus sorry I missed yesterday
    I have been prescribed to take Lugols Iodine 12% solution internally I feel reluctant to do this.
    What are your thoughts I had Pneumonia last January 2019 and it did not leave me where it found me .
    Then 4/5 years ago I had no energies which were non existant after the Pneumonia and ended up with ME/CFS
    I believe that if you put a drop on the inside of your wrist note the time it is placed and if it disappears very quickly your body is short of Iodine.
    My main concern is about taking the iodine internally as prescribed by a medical herbalist
    3 drops in a glass of water in the morning for 3 weeks stop one week then do it again repeat procedure in 2 months time.
    The iodine was prescribed along with many other things to take to help the Chronic Fatigue.
    just wondered what your thoughts are.

  9. Is this protocol effective with covid 19? There are many types of human coronaviruses including some that commonly cause mild upper-respiratory tract illnesses. COVID-19 is a new disease, caused be a novel (or new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans.

  10. Iodine may work to kill the virus on surfaces, not as a cure. Also the Welsh doctor is wrong about coconut oil. From Business Insider:
    "Coconut oil is smooth and rich, but it also has no place in coronavirus treatment.
    At least one health official in the Philippines recently suggested that coconut oil was "being looked into" to kill the new coronavirus, but that's not true in any serious way.
    There are some studies, in mice, that have shown coconut oil might, just might, help kill bacteria that cause some Staphylococcus (staph) infections. But that doesn't mean the same will ever be true in people.
    In fact, scientists don't even know if our bodies are capable of making the compound derived from a coconut's lauric acid that could provide such a bacteria-killing bonus. Besides, the novel coronavirus is not the same as staph, anyway. "

  11. Dear followers,
    Is it also possible to use a nebulizer instead of a salt pipe, inhale through the nose with the nose nose piece.

  12. Excellent publish, very informative. I’m wondering why the other specialists of this sector do not notice this. You should continue your writing. I am confident, you have a great readers’ base already!

  13. I've been a fan of this blog for a while now and it never disappoints. The author's writing is both informative and engaging, and I always come away with new insights and a deeper understanding of the subject matter.
