I test positive. He said get monoclonal antibodies in you as soon as possible so I did. By noon, I had the monoclonal antibodies in me and then he told me to do an NAD drip. I did that right after, tuesday, I get ready to shave, cleaning my razor, I can smell the alcohol. My taste and smell were back by the next day at 11 o’clock in the morning. Then, I took a dose of ivermectin. Yesterday, then I did a vitamin drip and then today I’m doing another NAD drip. Could not feel better. Feel like a million bucks. I’m doing two-a-day workouts by the way, too, for the next 10 days while I have COVID, and you know I’m in quarantine, and yeah, I got my smell and taste back in less than 24 hours.
