There are many fears about the coronavirus pandemic affecting so many countries in the world at this time.
While exploring Google for information about how to help keep myself and loved ones safe at this time, i found the following information written by a Dr Derry.

“Iodine is by far the best antibiotic,antiviral and antiseptic of all time.”
Dr. David Derry

The antiseptic properties of iodine are used to sterilize every surface and material in
hospitals. Iodine is an excellent microbicide with a broad range of action that includes almost
all of the important health-related microorganisms, such as enteric bacteria, enteric viruses,
bacterial viruses, fungi and protozoan cysts.v[v] The minimum number of iodine molecules
required to destroy one bacterium varies with the species. For H. influenzae it was calculated
to be 15000 molecules of iodine per cell. When bacteria are treated with iodine, the inorganic
phosphate up-take and oxygen consumption by the cells immediately ceases. vi[vi]
Though iodine kills all single celled organisms such as these it is not exploited for internal
use by modern day physicians to combat internal infections, which of course is a great
mistake. Dr. Derry says iodine is effective “for standard pathogens such as Staphylococcus,
but also iodine has the broadest range of action, fewest side effects and no development of
bacterial resistance.” Some doctors have reported that it is excellent for the trearment for

“Iodine is able to penetrate quickly through the cell walls of microorganisms.”

Iodine is a deadly enemy of single cell microorganisms thus it can be our best friend. Iodine
was not available to these life forms at the beginning of evolution and it was not until
seaweed concentrated it did it become involved in higher life forms. It is for this reason that
the simplest level of life cannot tolerate iodine.

Iodine kills single celled organisms by combining with the amino acids tyrosine or histidine when they are exposed to the extracellular environment. All single cells showing tyrosine on their outer cell membranes are
killed instantly by a simple chemical reaction with iodine that denatures proteins. Nature and
evolution have given us an important mechanism to control pathogenic life forms and we
should use it and trust it to protect us in ways that antibiotics can’t. As we shall see directly
below, so powerful is iodine in a protective sense that it also helps us rid the body, not only of
harmful chemicals and heavy metals, but also rids the body of abnormal cells meaning it
qualifies as an anticancer agent.

Elemental iodine is a potent germicide with a wide spectrum of activity and low toxicity to
tissues. A solution containing 50 ppm iodine kills bacteria in 1 min and spores in 15 min. It is
poorly soluble in water but readily dissolves in ethanol, which enhances its antibacterial
activity. Iodine tincture contains 2% iodine and 2.4% sodium iodide (NaI) dissolved in 50%
ethanol; it is used as a skin disinfectant. Strong iodine tincture contains 7% iodine and 5%
potassium iodide (KI) dissolved in 95% ethanol; it is more potent but also more irritating than
tincture of iodine. Iodine solution contains 2% iodine and 2.4% NaI dissolved in aqueous
solution; it is used as a nonirritant antiseptic on wounds and abrasions. Strong iodine solution
(Lugol’s solution) contains 5% iodine and 10% KI in aqueous solution.

So this information could help you with an additional tool to help you combat the coronavirus.

Wishing you good health and keep safe.
