Dr. Stephen Parcell’s COVID-19 recommendations: N-acetylcysteine (NAC) We as medical professionals are working hard to improve outcomes in patients with COVID-19. In addition to trials on drugs and other procedures it is important to recognize other options. Working to promote the body’s own healing response using knowledge of molecular biology, biochemistry and physiology is foundational. Using naturally occurring molecules often provides a good benefit-risk ratio because there are fewer side effects as well as little or no toxicity. High-dose intravenous vitamin C is currently a very good example of this. N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is another treatment that deserves to be tried because it is specific for lung function. I am currently advising all my patients to take vitamin C to bowel tolerance, maintain adequate vitamin D levels, take curcumin and take 600 mg of NAC twice a day.
