Regarding West Nile Virus, the remedy I would use to treat West Nile is the same remedy as should be used for most viruses. The reason why the virus is eliminated is simple: they need sugar and if the body's sugar is high, the virus attacks you. So basically, a malaria remedy would do it too: methylene blue 0.1% given hourly at 5 to 10 drops. Vitamin C may also help. Most supplements would work where the resultant effect is to lower the blood sugar.
A virus attacks the immune system. The body then responds with cortisol, for example, which causes the blood sugar to be high. So lysine has a direct effect on blood sugar by lowering that, but its effect lasts only one hour, so it must be taken hourly, until the blood sugar is normal. So you need at least three hours to see improvements. Zinc acetate and zinc gluconate have the same effect, but only antivirally not on the body's blood sugar. But zinc is taken once, while lysine is taken hourly. As for how long does it usually take to kill the virus, if taken hourly for four hours twice a day, for three days, the West Nile Virus or any virus should be eliminated (mostly) by the third day.
As far as methylene blue 0.1% is concerned, it works by increasing the oxygen to the blood which kills them that way. Iodine works by being antiviral, but is less effective if take orally. It needs another element for iodine to be effective, which is basically lithium chloride, 10% with 10% potassium iodide solution. This produces fewer side effects than the usual SSKI (by lower concentration) or Lugol's iodine (pure iodine produces more side effects).
Home Remedy Treatment: The methylene blue 0.1% is preferably used together with vitamin C. The latter can be taken hourly for at least 4 doses during the day, such as 500 mg vitamin C ascorbic acid or preferably sodium ascorbate and 0.1% methylene blue at 5 to 10 drops per hour for 3 to 4 hours, once a day. Twice a day is too much, but if the person has weaknesses then it may be continued longer, on the understanding that it may cause sleeplessness.
