Abstract

THE EFFECT OF SODIUM HYDROXIDE SUPPLEMENT ON INTRACELLULAR PH; A NEW APPROACH MAY SHED LIGHT ON DEACTIVATING COVID-19 – REVIEW

Hassan Sadek* and Jesse Hernandez

ABSTRACT

Background: In December 2019, a new coronavirus was discovered in Wuhan, China, which is officially named COVID-19. Within two months of the discovery of the first patient, it has now spread across China and many areas globally. COVID-19 appears to follow other patterns of SARS. Although the fatality rate is estimated to be low, the number of deaths has already exceeded that of SARS. COVID-19 is a major pandemic that will be with us for some time. For most patients, COVID-19 begins and ends in their lungs, because like the flu, coronaviruses are respiratory diseases. pH and temperature constitute two important and conveniently controlled factors that will facilitate further molecular studies on human coronaviruses. There is no specific antiviral treatment for COVID-19. It will act like other infectious diseases and slowdown in the warmer summer months. The scenarios in this paper demonstrate that increase intracellular pH (alkalinity within the cell) has been shown to decrease the infectivity of pH-dependent viruses. There are several ongoing clinical trials that include both western and traditional medicines. Vitamin C has been reported in clinical trials to successfully help treat coronavirus. Understanding the role of pH balance in viral infections may provide preventive and therapeutic breakthroughs for dealing with epidemics including the recent outbreak of COVID-19. Methods: PubMed and Embase were searched up to March 22, 2020, for prospective observational studies that assessed the relationship of pH and COVID-19 activity. Results: The research study reviews the researches on the COVID-19 which concludes that there is no definite vaccination for the virus however it can be prevented or treated through immune-boosting techniques such as intake of Sodium Hydroxide supplements. Conclusion: Coronavirus is sensitive to pH. The MHV-A59 strain of coronavirus is quite stable at pH 6.0 (acidic) but becomes rapidly and irreversibly inactivated by brief treatment at pH 8.0. Alkaline supplements create no place for viruses and bacteria to reproduce and boost our immune system.
