For your information
[I am trying since long to spread this important experience as much as possible]
Until now only used by my patients, extended families and friends.
Also -like former years- I saw spectacular very fast results [often better the next morning!] with tincture of Portulaca [oleracea] in cases of flu/influenza.
I am working with portulaca since 2009 [see below , why]
In 2019 I was happily surprised to see an article from Taiwan which was confirming my experience:
[Portulaca tea for influenza]
By now I have treated tens of Corona patients, who were officially diagnosed as such.
A part of them- with clear symptoms of Corona [ loss of smell / taste] were not tested.
Anyhow I don’t wait and I advise to start portulaca straight away in case of “flu-like” symptoms. [ I would find it not ethical to wait with the experience I already have]
Since the Corona outbreak I advised every adult to take daily 30 drops of Portulaca oleracea.[except in pregnancy and patients on coumadine] as a preventive.
Some patients with severe Corona [beforehand not my patients] have been healed by Portulaca and thanks God, no fatalities until this day [ end Sept 2020]
Sometimes the portulaca was combined with esberitox.[ an echinacea supplement] or very often with echinacea as such]
Most of my patients are taking already for many years vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 and many also supplemental zinc and selenium [from brazil nuts] and often magnesium.
Many hundreds- if not thousands of patients[ including those who were advised by friends to take portulaca] have taken the tincture and I can’t be that mistaken [for so many years] about its effectiveness.
It is sad and a pity that it is not being tried by others as well.
I hope full-heartedly that you may help spread the message.
I have whatsoever no other interest in this than to see that an easy cheap method may help so many.

On what basis was my decision to use Portulaca for flu since the last swine flu in 2009.
Portulaca might prevent life-threatening alveolar edema in humans with flu.
In November 2009 I adopted an article from Life extension who was the first to quote from FASEB the following:
“In a journal of experimental biology it was shown that glutathione ester might prevent life-threatening alveolar edema in humans with flu”.
It is known that supplements of glutathione are in general badly absorbed.
From the famous website of James Duke [Dr. Duke’s Phytochemical and Ethnobotanical Databases at the USDA] I was so lucky to find two natural sources to be very rich in glutathione.
One is the vegetable Purslane[Portulaca],the other is spinach.
This finding led me to use Portulaca in the swine-flu of 2009, and during many years thereafter and then again in 2019, with incredible good results , very rapid healing of all flu patients
Since the covid-19 epidemic I include patients with doubtful or established covid-19 and give portulaca for prevention and therapy as well.
As I wrote above: Since the Corona outbreak I advised every adult to take daily 30 drops of Portulaca oleracea.[except in pregnancy and patients on coumadine]
As stated above in September of 2019 an article from Taiwan was published by Elsevier about Portulaca [as a tea] and influenza.
This article was totally ignored by the medical community probably because there are no financial benefits to gain…?
I sent this article also to the Consumerlab in the USA and it was approved and published on their website even if they did not wish to recommend Portulaca officially
