I apologize for this intrusion; I am not nearly a virology expert.  Nor

a small device that took blood out of a vein, heated it slightly (enough
kill roaming viruses) and then cooled it again?

Alternatively, might it be possible to alternatingly change the pH of
blood, first more basic than normal, then less, then more...  through a
IV drip, and thus wipe out the viruses as they form?

I think advantages of this would be that even if it did not kill off the
it would inherently slow down the mutation rates, such that the body
be able to take care of it.

Don't bother replying to me, since I won't be back, though if you all

silly, or has already been tried.
