COVID-19 Prevention Strategies: Update

Hello again one and all:

We hope you are staying well, and here is some more news about a safe antiseptic disinfectant/sanitizer to reduce your risks. It is called stabilized hypochlorous acid, and despite the name, it has been around for decades and has been proven safe and effective as a disinfectant. It is also known as electrolyzed water. There are literally hundreds of references, and here are a few:

This link shows how it is safe and effective and now being used in cruise ships:

“The single most important feature of hypochlorous acid is that it is unusually efficient in eliminating viruses. One of the big reasons why people are switching over is efficacy.

National and international reference laboratories have proven that HOCl works very well against viruses, including norovirus and human coronaviruses. One study is of particular interest: in 2016, researchers at the University of Washington School of Public Health found that HOCl was more than 99.999 percent effective in eliminating coronavirus OC43, which is similar to COVID-19.”

Bottom Line: We all need to apply some disinfectants to ourselves and external surfaces, so it is good to know that a very safe and effective one does exist, and that it has a long history that is little known but solid. We are now offering this product in the office from Briotech. Here are links to the science and the most frequently asked questions. We think this is an important part of a comprehensive strategy to remain as safe as possible.

The above links thoroughly describe their stabilized HOCL products. Their products are safe to use on all skin and mucosal surfaces. This means that you can use it as an oral spray as needed where it may possibly act to disinfect many types of infections that begin in the sinus, oral cavity, throat and upper airways. I strongly recommend that you read the above two links and consider applying this spray as a part of your prevention and health management strategies.

Once again, there are no human trials or studies that say that this is a treatment for SARS-CoV-2, also known as COVID-19. It is not known (yet) if this absolutely kills COVID-19. There is enough science and history with this product to assume safety and efficacy as part of your disinfecting strategies for your masks, hands, face, mucosal surfaces, and hard surfaces like counter tops, doorknobs, etc. We are using it in the office and home, and I am spraying my hands and treatment surfaces before and after each patient encounter. I also use it as a throat/oral spray several times a day.

An ounce of prevention is worth…a lot!!!
