Sara Middleton via NaturalHealth365 – Could a common drug called Budesonide really offer an effective, safe, and affordable COVID solution for ill patients? The answer may shock you, especially if you’ve been listening to the dire reports put out by the mainstream media.
The truth is: a Texan emergency room doctor – with nearly 30 years of experience – has some very good news for those people concerned about COVID-19. And, thankfully, he’s currently working hard to get his message out about this potentially lifesaving steroid, no matter how reluctant some government officials may be to admit its promising impact.
Medical Doctor Is Putting the Proverbial Fire of COVID-19 Out with Budesonide
Budesonide is typically inhaled via a nebulizer, a non-invasive medical device that transforms medication into vapor so it can be breathed in by the patient through a handheld nozzle or simple face mask. The drug is commonly used to treat asthma.
Because it helps alleviate inflammation in the body, doctors also use budesonide for other reasons, including managing symptoms of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. But, according to Texas ER physician Dr. Richard Bartlett, budesonide is helping his COVID patients recover extremely quickly and without the side effects commonly seen with other heavier-duty steroid medications.
In a July 2 interview on the news show American Can We Talk, Dr. Bartlett explains:
“My silver bullet is inhaled [generic] budesonide. It’s super cheap … with insurance, many of my patients are not even having to pay for it.”
He continues: “[Budeosnide] is a respiratory anti-inflammatory for COVID – which is a respiratory inflammatory disease – and it works.”
Dr. Bartlett has had a 100% success rate with this promising COVID treatment, and notes that many of his patients have reported feeling significantly better after just one five minute nebulizer treatment. In his clinical practice setting, he’s been treating very ill patients since March.

In another interview shared by MSN, Dr. Bartlett says his COVID treatment plan for ill patients – many of whom are high risk due to underlying medical conditions and advanced age – is based on the complementary action of three main drugs: generic budesonide to fight inflammation and the so-called “cytokine storm” (a severe inflammatory process in the body often seen in COVID-19 that can lead to multi-organ failure and death), generic antibiotics to fight subsequent bacterial infections, and zinc, to interfere with replication of the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2.
“It’s common sense,” he adds bluntly.
Dr. Bartlett has said that doctors in other countries including France and Spain are starting to explore the use of inhaled steroid medications for their COVID-19 patients. He also adds that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will reportedly be looking into budesonide for use in the global pandemic, as well.
We look forward to hearing more about budesonide and are curious to see whether it’ll start picking up more support in the media and scientific community.
