Opinion: We should be questioning the global suppression of early treatment options for COVID-19

Clark County Today Administrator Heidi Wetzler shares what she believes is a medical tragedy that COVID-19 patients are not being treated immediately.

Clark County Today Administrator Heidi Wetzler shares what she believes is a medical tragedy that COVID-19 patients are not being treated immediately

If you walked into your doctor’s office with a case of shingles, what do you think would happen? Would you be sent home and instructed to return when the pain was unbearable – or would you be treated on the spot?  While there is no cure for shingles, prompt treatment with prescription antiviral drugs can speed healing and reduce the risk of complications.

What about viral pneumonia, viral hepatitis, or HIV/Aids? Same question. Would you be treated? The answer of course, is yes. These all have treatment protocols, to speed recovery and increase comfort, even though viruses don’t necessarily have “cures.”  Because viruses don’t respond to antibiotics, alternative treatments are important. And they all work best when started early.  So why do we have a fatal viral infection ravaging the world, with barely a mention of ambulatory treatment?

Millions of people have tested positive for COVID-19,  and are promptly sent home to quarantine and self-monitor their symptoms. No health care professional checks in on them. They are told to stay home and only come back if they are having trouble breathing. While I would imagine it is common knowledge in the medical community that early treatment for any ailment greatly improves the chance of a favorable outcome, why is there a virtual blackout of information surrounding the global conversation of early treatment protocol in order to AVOID hospitalization and death? Controlling the healthy with masks and social distancing and now vaccines, and then Herculean efforts involving the critically ill, have taken up all of the air, while the person in their first two weeks of the infection suffering at home is all but ignored by the medical community. 

Dr. Peter McCullough, vice chief of Internal Medicine at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, and the most prolifically published academic physician in his field of heart and kidneys in history, has testified several times lately that there is a shocking suppression of early treatment for COVID-19 in medical literature. A review of several of his communications resulted in this summary of his findings. He calls this effort to suppress any hope of treatment, extraordinary. All of the patients he sees are considered high risk, and with the sequenced multi-drug approach he uses, he has only lost two. When he extrapolates the data he has personally acquired through treating his own very ill patients, and calculates what that would mean for the death rate worldwide if a similar treatment protocol was adopted globally, an astonishing 85 percent of COVID-19 deaths could have been prevented. The key is that treatment must begin early in order to avoid hospitalization. And that is the opposite of what has happened and is continuing to happen.  

The treatment regimen includes 4-6 drugs taken in a specific time frame, starting with monoclonal antibodies, then antivirals, then anti-inflammatories, and then anticoagulants. It is recommended that anyone over 50 with at least one comorbidity begin this course of treatment immediately. Reduction of viral replication at the forefront of infection is key. There has been unconventional concern worldwide regarding the safety of certain therapeutics for this virus. In fact, in Australia doctors were threatened with a 6-month prison sentence if they dared to prescribe the antiviral, Hydroxychloroquine. This move is unprecedented. The use of Hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 is off-label they said. But off-label use of older medicines for new uses occurs every day. In fact, 20 percent of all prescriptions in the U.S. are written for off-label uses when a doctor thinks a medicine will benefit a patient. Apparently, the list of what not to use is long and broad within the treatment recommendations. We are 16 months into this thing and as-of-yet, there are zero trials of multidrug therapies. There is no national or global panel of doctors in charge of early treatment protocol. Why? Maybe it’s because a vaccine is only allowed to be produced if there are no effective treatments.  

The conversation around building up one’s own immune system is also nearly nonexistent in medical and mainstream circles. A study conducted from March-June 2020 including 191,000 patients in the US found that Vitamin D deficiency increased the risk of acquiring COVID-19 by 54.5 percent. Additionally, 80 percent of people with COVID-19 didn’t have adequate levels of the vitamin in their blood. This is a wildly important piece of information that doctors should be shouting from the rooftops. Zinc is also critical as it helps block the virus from multiplying. An Adult Treatment Guide put out by Yale University cites “a lack of clinical data to support” the effectiveness of various vitamins and medicines. It is high time for the medical community to be implementing trials of all kinds and gathering such data. But the sole focus today seems to be on a one-size-fits-all vaccination campaign, instead of on strengthening one’s immune system and finding effective treatments. All of the eggs in the proverbial COVID-19 basket seem to be filled with only one treatment – the vaccine.  

Dr. McCullough testifies that there is no scientific rationale to vaccinate anyone under the age of 50. The individual risk outweighs the individual benefit. Also, there were several groups that were intentionally excluded from the Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson vaccine trials in 2020; COVID-19 recovered, suspected COVID-19 recovered, those with COVID-19 antibodies, pregnant women, and women of childbearing potential that couldn’t assure the use of contraceptives. Pregnant women as a rule of best medical practice are always discouraged from coming in contact with anything pathogenic. The COVID-19 vaccine produces a pathogenic protein. Why then, are pregnant women being given the shot? The existing scientific data simply does not ensure that it is safe for this group. My family is COVID-19 recovered. Why are we being encouraged to participate when our situation was not included in the clinical trial? Whether we want to believe it or not, COVID-19 recovered individuals are unknowingly signing up for a trial now if they receive the vaccine.  

Historically, those who contract and recover from a virus, have robust, complete and durable immunity. COVID-19 recovered, have actually been found to possess a terrific track record of freedom from reinfection. Moreover, SARS-coV-1, which emerged from China in 2002 is 79 percent similar to SARS-coV-2 (COVID-19), and most of those who contracted SARS-coV-1 still had immunity 17 years later. It is a false narrative at this point to suggest that there is significant concern that you can get it twice. While it is possible, it is now known that the chances are extremely low. On top of that those with natural immunity cannot acquire or spread it, as is a concern with those whose only immunity is from the vaccine. 

What we are witnessing now is tremendous coercion for everyone to receive this vaccine, no matter the individual risk/benefit analysis. This strategy is in direct opposition to The Nuremberg Code which doctors profess to uphold. The first tenet of this code begins as follows: 

1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. 

THE NUREMBERG CODE

Simply put, each person gets to decide what happens to their body. We are witnessing all manner of coercion regarding the distribution of this vaccine. Free donuts, lottery-style winnings, reduced prison sentences, and pressure from Hollywood stars. The weird and wild list goes on and on. Schools are offering vaccine clinics around the world, some without requiring the consent of parents. There simply is no significant evidence that children are at risk of spreading or becoming sick or dying from this virus. To me, these actions are nothing short of criminal. 

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons have put out a guide to Home-Based COVID treatment. A copy can be found here. There are 35 treatment centers in Texas for early treatment of COVID and if you need help finding one near you, there is a link to a list within this guide. As a society, we need to be questioning the radical suppression of early treatment options for a potentially fatal virus. It simply makes no logical sense.

Extremely good article. Never before have we seen this type of government intrusion into our lives and it will only get worse if we don’t speak out and even demonstrate if needed. This dangerous so called vaccine is being pushed on every one and someday, maybe years from now, we may have a lot of sick people from it and find it is much worse than Covid. The lies are appalling, Melnick, the County Health person, just said it is not experimental when FDA says it is. There is no end to the lying – reminds me of my visit to communist countries where everyone is afraid that may say something that might get them arrested.

On July 6, 1885, Louis Pasteur and his colleagues injected the first of 14 daily doses of rabbit spinal cord suspensionscontaining progressively inactivated rabies virus into 9-year-old Joseph Meister, who had been severely bitten by a rabid dog 2 days before. This was the first time the vaccine was injected to an human, the rest is history!

At least Pasteur saved his patient when doctors now days cannot even try until people are so sick they can barely breath, even when research is showing treatment works.

What nonsense. We have not been told the vaccine is our only hope of survival. We’ve been told that most people survive Covid-19. We have been told that Covid-19 has long term consequences for a significant percentage of people. We’ve been told many people are at risk for severe disease, hospitalization or death which is demonstrated around the world on a daily basis, over 680,000 Americans have suffered and died alone and millions more around the world so far. We have been told that many survivors are left with debilitating and disabling consequences of this disease. We are back up to nearly 2 thousand Americans dying daily at this point. We’ve been told that historically vaccines end pandemics- examples -small pox, polio, whooping cough, diphtheria, measles etc. We’ve been told vaccination is the way to end this pandemic and put an end to the surging cases on Covid-19 that have wreaked havoc of our lives and on the lives of people around the world. We’ve been told that Scientific information on an evolving disease grows and changes as the disease replicates and mutates and that Science doesn’t have all the answers but the scientific community is working day and night to find answers, therapeutics and vaccines to keep up with the various emerging strains of SARS CoV2. And that is the truth.

Thank you for posting this. I’m really struggling with an anti-vaxxer friend and she will not give any credence at all to any conventional media and it FREAKS me out ! How bizarre that so many people can completely dismiss the link between flooded hospitals with unvaccinated people and the fact that NONE of us personally know anybody with anything more than slight side effects from the vaccine.

re you sure they are flooded with Covid patients? How many hospital patients really do have Covid?
How many were tested for Covid with the bogus PCR test? How many actually have seasonal flu?
How many patients are there because they have had moderate to severe reactions to a covid vaccine?
I have never known anyone who has had even a mild case of Covid 19, I personally have seen no evidence of Covid 19 being a real Pandemic. If it were a pandemic why would so many health care workers be losing their jobs? Why are there almost zero reports on the CDC website of seasonal Flu?
Too many questions, too many lies, too much censorship to make me a believer.

First of all, that 9 year old boy didn’t get injected with a genetically modified protein ……Secondly this is the very first MRNA VACCINE TO EVER be given. Thirdly, Dr. Malone, who invented and owns the patent on this mRNA tech is even saying the CDC isn’t telling us everything and that he is opposed to mandating the vaccine and there I’m there is still too little data. So the rabbit vaccine story is nice but not comparable.

Diana…you are right about Dr. Robert Malone. I heard him say in one of his interviews that he “has concerns about the vaccines”. He said there are many serious side effects cases that are not being reported in the media, so people are getting a one-sided story about the vaccines. He also said the vaccines are experimental. He recommended the vaccine for the elderly, but not for younger people. He said many cases of inflammation of the heart have been reported in college-aged people. One of my close friends has been disabled since she got the vaccine in February when it was required by her employer. Sadly, Dr. Malone’s interviews and statements are heavily censored on social media and elsewhere. That should tell us something!

Unfortunately, even the creators of the mRNA protocol don’t call it a vaccine….. what we have now is gene therapy, not a vaccine and the method of testing with the qPCR test is also being over amplified and as such, produces tons of false positives or cases….. stop testing people that are asymptomatic and the cases will drop.

The real reason IMHO that the medical establishment is against alternative medical treatment is there no money to be made…Why prescribe Ivermectin at $2.00 a pop whe. You ha e an $1500 vaccine?. The medical profession is funded by Big Pharma….but mark my words ….Pfizer and Merck will come up with their own cocktail of early treatment Meds …. Then and only then will the medical profession adopt alternatives to the vaccine.

While I agree with your sentiment, there are currently no clinical studies that prove ivermectin is effective in treating Covid-19. And now, people are actually harming themselves, some have even died, from overdosing on it.

Notice how the “Fact Checkers” never answer the question about how early treatment is saving so many lives. How can the official response still be to go home and wait to get worse and then do the same in hospital with the mantra of ‘wait for the vaccine’. One can only conclude that there is a forced vaccine agenda at play here that is at complete odds with the Nuremberg code. Perhaps they’re in the process of developing an even more virulent strain in the Wuhan labs to be accidently released with the only saviour being another vaccine?

Nonsense.
Dr. Peter McCullough doesn’t “seem to be a cardiologist.” He is a highly-published professor of Internal Mediciane at Texas A&M Medical School and Vice Chief of Internal Medicine at Baylor University Medical Center. He wrote one of the FIRST medical journal articles on early treatment for Covid-19, when physicians were struggling to find some way to treat the deadly disease.
Link:
American Journal of Medicine “SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Infection”
https://www.amjmed.com/article/S0002-9343(20)30673-2/fulltext

I’d suggest readers listen to the full interview of Dr. McCullough (over an hour) where he discusses success with early treatments as well as vaccines. He is vaccinated, but says that pregnant/nursing women and children should NOT get the mRNA vaccines (Moderna & Pfizer) due to the growning number of reported side effects.

FULL INTERVIEW: Dr. Peter McCullough, MD MPHon Covid-19 treatments and vaccines.
https://rumble.com/vhp7y5-full-interview-world-renowned-doctor-blows-lid-off-of-covid-vaccine.html

His main point is that the suppression of early treatment of Covid-19 by those in government and the media is ridiculous and has never been seen with any other medical condition. There are several drugs, procedures, and nutraceuticals that practicing physicians have found to be effective if Covid-19 patients are treated early. These include:

Medications:
-Remdesivir
-Ivermectin
-Hydroxychloroquine (please don’t start with the anti-Trump nonsnense, the use of the drug it isn’t in question anymore)
-Azithromycin or Doxycyline
-Corticosteroids
-Ivermectin
-Famotidine

Procedures:
-Monoclonal antibodies (e.g. Regeneron)
-Convalescent plasma

Immune Supportive Nutraceuticals:
-Zinc (most important with the medications above)
-Vitamin C
-Vitamin D3
-Selenium

He’d also mentioned Fluvoxamine which is an SSRI antidepressant and Colchicine which is a drug treatment for gout He’d mentioned that Colchicine is at least 50% effective in preventing someone from getting COVID-19 and I know for a fact that people with gout on Colchicine did not get sick during the pandemic while being around COVID-19 patients in close quarters for at least an hour multiple times a day due to their professions despite everyone else around them got COVID-19. This was before they had the mask mandates at the hospitals. I remember being threatened at the hospital for disciplinary action during the pandemic for wearing masks and now they’re threatening us again for not getting a dangerous vaccine. I have no problem getting Novavax but since the government knows it’s safe so they’re giving them a hard time by citing all kinds of standard violations and withholding the funding and raw materials so they can’t produce the vaccine or get it approved. Meanwhile India, Canada, and Europe are ordering millions of doses from them already. Please explain this!

A personal and life-long friend who has a masters degree in Epidemiology, including viruses, from Johns Hopkins sent me this article when I inquired of Dr. McCullough. No offense intended, but I trust his expertise over your opinion on this matter. In addition, Dr. McCullough’s colleagues are wondering why he appears to have forgotten everything he ever learned in epidemiology and clinical medicine. Is it for the notoriety (hero worship status) and/or money?? Is he drinking heavily?? Senility? My friend thinks he should either be jailed for misleading the public or committed to an insane asylum (tongue in cheek humor of course)

I look forward to the day when branding tendentious propaganda as “fact checking” ceases to work. I’m not tempted to critique it in much detail, but the linked article begins by “debunking” the claim that “[h]ealthy people younger than 50 do not need a Covid-19 vaccine” without citing a shred of evidence that healthy people younger than 50 are at any significant risk from Covid-19. We are given an unsubstantiated quote from an authority figure alleging the obviousness that healthy people under 50 should be vaccinated “because they can still be affected by the disease”: in a sane world this could only possibly be “obvious” were the dangers of vaccination itself minimal, which in this instance they patently are not,. I could very easily go on, but it would be healthy for anyone still at all disposed to trust anything claiming to be a “fact checker” to check out the meretriciousness of this one for themselves.

Exactly!!!! How can anyone defend the act of risking the health of their children for an experimental vaccine? I’m not anti-vax, but the argument for making healthy people get Covid shots “IN CASE” they “MIGHT POSSIBLY” spread it to Granny is preposterous! I’m all for the sick, elderly & any other adults who want to get the vaccine to do so. But I cannot understand why our government refuses to include those who have recovered with antibodies. Not to mention that we will never reach herd immunity as long as we get over 100,000 foreign nationals every single month (from 150 different countries) added to our ‘herd’.

Text from a friend who has a master’s degree in Epidemiology, including viruses, from Johns Hopkins:

“Hey honey bunny – this Dr. McCullough WAS a fairly distinguished cardiologist, but lately he’s COMPLETELY lost his mind. My research suggests that he is likely doing it for several reasons, including the HUGE notoriety he has been getting on social media and on various recommended news outlets, claiming some sort of a “hero status” and personal worship among the far right wing. He is also getting a ton of money from appearances on television and the internet, from YouTube and other media sites for clicks, and from certain sponsors and the manufacturers of vitamins, supplements, ivermectin, remdesivir, and hydroxychloroquine. It could be that he is getting senile too, or maybe he’s drinking or getting high, but I can tell you one thing for sure … He is completely full of shit to the point where if he had blue eyes at one time, they are dark brown now, because he’s full of it all the way up to the top of his skull. The one thing was easiest to disprove that he says is treatment with hydroxychloroquine. There have been many clinical trials of hydroxychloroquine, with or without the similar drug chloroquine, azithromycin, and even placebo in the very early part of the pandemic. Now, of course, it is considered completely unethical to do a clinical trial for covid-19, which can cause death or lifelong great bodily harm, by using a placebo on the comparator arm. That would be like doing a cancer trial of a new drug and comparing it to saltwater injections for placebo. You just can’t do that, it’s basically manslaughter period. When you do a trial of a new cancer drug (side note from me – the author of this text has actually spent decades in a lab researching viruses that cause cancers) you don’t compare it to placebo, you compare it to the standard drug you use to treat that cancer, and see if there’s a difference in favor of the new drug. It’s kind of a weird case, you don’t often see this happen, that a very highly respected doctor with over 500 research papers published just forgets everything he ever learned in epidemiology and clinical medicine and starts spouting bullshit for money or notoriety. I believe the man should be jailed or put into a mental institution.😂

Right before I texted you today, I was reading a summary of an extensive study of vaccine risks versus virus caused risks in 29 million people, who were all over 40 and had had at least one injection of a vaccine, and compared them to 1.8 million people who had been infected with the virus. That’s one hellacious sample, obviously. It didn’t matter which vaccine, although the new mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna are dramatically more effective than all the other ones, which are made using older vaccine technology, like whole inactivated, or fragmented radiated or chemically treated SARS virus, or virus that has had certain proteins cloned into an adenovirus vector and given with or without an adjuvant to boost its potency. Some are like many other vaccines made today, including a few of the COVID vaccine types. THE STUDY WAS VERY CONSISTENT WHEN COMPARED ACROSS ALL STUDY GROUPS, and in all cases, the vaccines safety and effectiveness just absolutely blew away the results for people who were unvaccinated. All vaccines, no matter how they are made or for what disease they’re intended to prevent, carry some risks. That is absolutely unavoidable.

But for example, among every 10 million people who took the Astra Zeneca vaccine, there were 107 people who had a very low platelet count and got bad internal bleeding, or died of that bleeding, the risk of having the SAME problems from the COVID virus infection was over NINE TIMES AS HIGH. And while 66 out of 10 million vaccinated people got a serious blood clot or died of a blood clot, among 10 million people who got the virus, there were over 200 TIMES AS MANY who got a serious blood clot or died.

 Among the 10 million who got the Pfizer vaccine, like me, there were an extra 66 strokes, the rate from COVID 19TIMES as high from getting the virus. Among Pfizer vaccine recipients, like me, there
 was a very tiny increase in risk of having a stroke from getting the Pfizer vaccine, like I got – and by the way, I’m getting a third shot within the next couple of weeks.”

If your credentials outrank his, please tell me more. I’ll wait.

It’s outrageous that “fact checking” minions of social media think they know more than actual MD’s, nurses & researchers. I can’t even fathom how many lives could have been saved, had Covid not been politicized in such a manner. Hyper partisans use trigger words like “misinformation” & “disinformation”, even though they don’t have a clue about research or statistics.

To list the lies would take up to much space, so I’ll answer your question with a question, “how was Fauci NOT lying early on? And still doing so. Lab leak, mask, don’t mask, mask, vaccines, sarcastically, “covid vaccines are safe and effective” “safe and effective” “safe and effective” Bhaaaaaaa, Bhaaaaaaa. So safe and effective that they have to suppress the HUGE #’s of negative side-effects and deaths very soon after covid vax or months later. Oh and each negative side-effect or death just happens to be nearly the same, some adverse reaction with blood clots being the main root of the cause. Go take your covid vax, the fewer sheep like you left around, the easier it will be for us who love freedom to resist these globalist and take back our world and remain free.

Since the majority of medical doctors and researchers you speak of use words like “misinformation” in reference to Dr, McCullough’s blathering, what are you on about? Are the majority of doctors world-wide “hyper partisan” then? You need to adjust your conspiracy theory so it doesn’t so absurd.

Because no author is associated with this article (unlike some of the others), here is the editor as stated at the bottom of the page, https://healthfeedback.org/editor/flora-teoh/. For the claims cited, the list of references is surprisingly short, and one of which has not been published/peer-reviewed. Since we can only establish authorship by the editor named, we can ask the obvious question; how many patients has she treated? Probably none since she is a PhD and makes no claim to medical practice. I would expect more information about her through her curriculum vitae which is missing from her biography.

The Health Feedback site links to another site called Science Feedback that links to Climate Feedback which is a French non-profit established in 2016 through an Indiegogo campaign (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/climate-feedback-a-guide-to-reliable-climate-news–2/#/). They are partnered with Facebook (go figure) and financially supported by a short list of funders & donors (https://sciencefeedback.co/partners-funders-donors/).

As quoted on their site, “Science Feedback is paving the way for a new kind of fact-checking”. What does that mean exactly, is it scientifically objective (evidence-based) or ideologically subjective??? Their list of article reviews are repugnant in regard to thorough citation of scientific study and research before 2020, some of which have no citations at all.

This took me 20 minutes to figure out! Thank you, clk. Please try again.

I disagree. There is a lot more to the truth of this man-made in the lab virus. And there is treatment, many doctors will say they don’t treat COVID-19,WHY? There’s nothing said or offered to the public to be treated early covid patients with therapy drugs. What about early preventive care with diet and supplements. There’s many therapy drugs that have been affected in saving lives. Question, why is there so much push on getting the vaccine, vaccinating the globe?

Dr McCullough is a doctor and medical professor. He has certainly never been debunked whatever the hell that means. And he is not Anti-vax. He is pro treatment early and has his own patient data to back it up, along with now hundreds of studies proving the benefit of some of these drugs. It’s like people want the worst, the gloom and doom, the vaccine is the only answer. It’s not and hasn’t been since the beginning. We are literally killing people by withholding these treatments.

The fact you do not know what debunked means is hilarious. So I cannot take what you say and believe any of it. Let me give you a simpler word or two.. disproven or discredited. Yes he has been debunked. 1) his take on thinking no one under 50 needs a vaccine well that’s NOT TRUE 2) no one who is asymptomatic can infect others well that is NOT TRUE either. That’s some main ones. It’s like the guy is forgetting everything he’s learned like what someone has already mentioned. These conspiracies about vaccines and covid are doing more harm than good.

  • Do your research before you discount and defame someone. Dr. Peter McCollough is a highly credentialed cardioligist/internist/epidemiologist who has testified before Senate hearings. He has a podcast, The McCollough Report, containing valuable information for early treatment that is saving lives. My family followed it, recovered with no hospitalizations or death. Our family physician said to simply stay home, let me know if you have trouble breathing and then I can prescribe an inhaler. We chose the early onset treatment by Dr. McCollough instead. It is criminal that physicians aren’t doing anything except telling people to stay home and aren’t providing early onset treatment. It’s much easier to control a brush fire than to wait until its a raging forest fire. People are dying needlessly because of the suppression of information and by discrediting doctors who are helping people. The “debunking”as you call it, is merely a rejection of truth by those who are promoting an agenda. “Stop the spread” should apply to those who discredit and defame people, spreading disinformation– that can cost lives.

Well said. And yes!! Wake up! You’re being bamboozled by the top 1% of the wealthy in the world. They own all those large corporations, they own the mainstream media (follow the money) and they threaten scientists and doctors who want to tell the truth.

All the treatments being marketed as COVID-19 “vaccines”, are still in Phase III clinical trials until 2023 and hence, qualify as a medical experiment. People taking these treatments are enrolled as test-subjects and are further unaware that the injections are not actual vaccines as they do not contain a virus but instead an experimental gene therapy.

Numerous doctors, scientists, and medical experts are issuing dire warnings about the short and long-term effects of COVID-19 injections, including, but not limited to death, blood clots, infertility, miscarriages, Bell’s Palsy, cancer, inflammatory conditions, autoimmune disease, early-onset dementia, convulsions, anaphylaxis, inflammation of the heart, and antibody dependent enhancement leading to death; this includes children ages 12-17 years old.

I’ll take the early treatment and develop natural antibodies please. Should be my choice to make. Many of those who are agreeing to the mandated jab are already having regrets and it all originated from the installation of fear and the promotion of hysteria and the unfortunate trust placed in our leaders and governments.

“Dr. Byram Bridle, a pro-vaccine Associate Professor on Viral Immunology at the University of Guelph, gives a terrifying warning of the harms of the experimental treatments in a new peer reviewed scientifically published research study21 on COVID-19 shots. The added Spike Protein to the “vaccine” gets into the blood, circulates through the blood in individuals over several days post-vaccination, it accumulates in the tissues such as the spleen, bone marrow, the liver, the adrenal glands, testes, and of great concern, it accumulates high concentrations into the ovaries. Dr. Bridle notes that they “have known for a long time that the Spike Protein is a pathogenic protein, it is a toxin, and can cause damage if it gets into blood circulation.” The study confirms the combination is causing clotting, neurological damage, bleeding, heart problems, etc. There is a high concentration of the Spike Protein getting into breast milk and reports of suckling infants developing bleeding disorders in the gastrointestinal tract. There are further warnings that this injection will render children infertile, and that people who have been vaccinated should NOT donate blood.”

John Hopkins has published a report on the failure of vaccines to elicit an antibody response in transplant/immunocompromised patients. This leaves a very high risk segment of the community extremely vulnerable. The NIH website lists places where they are distributing monoclonal antibodies, FDA approved treatments, however they have to be administered at an outpatient infusion clinic. Not one of the places listed in Portland knows anything about these infusions, I called all of them. My husband is a transplant patient with multiple comorbidities, our own transplant center said to call the CDC. This is crazy, we don’t have access to life saving FDA approved treatment? Why is this, who’s accountable?

Here is the link to the AAPS “The Guide to Home-Based Covid Treatment” that Dr. Peter McCullough was the consulting editor on. It also has other info links at the end.

https://aapsonline.org/CovidPatientTreatmentGuide.pdf

I heard Dr. McCullough on the radio today and he said that there are some updated technical medical journal articles that have recently been published (June 2021) on his recommended drugs for EARLY Covid treatment – that is, right after an initial positive test, primarily in those over age 50. So doctors have access to this information, but he said that patients must be very assertive to find a doctor that will use these drugs.

Though he is vaccinated himself, he also expressed significant concerns about giving the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines to pregnant/nursing women or to children. It was not clear to me about whether he thinks the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is significantly safer (though it uses a somewhat different method that has been used before in a few other vaccines). There have also been rare blood clots reported in the J&J vaccine with women under age 40, but it seems there are more reported side effects in all groups with the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines. In any case, Dr. McCullough said that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are brand-new experimental technogy, and carry significant risk of migration of the Covid spike protein around the body, which could cause toxic effects.

Personally, I am waiting for the final approval of the Novavax vaccine (good clinical trials results just announced). It uses only an inactivated version of the Covid spike protein and an immune system booster, more like a traditional vaccine. It should have much less chance of serious side effects than the other three vaccines – which “instruct” cells of the body to produce the spike protein. It may be available in August/September – but no word yet. Several news articles about this if you search news for Novavax vaccine.

I’d suggest reading up on all of the vaccines and how they work with a Net search for articles and videos. You can search on:
vaccines + Johnson & Johnson + Moderna + Novavax + spike protein.

There is also a good YouTube video here from a doctor particularly on the Novavax vaccine:

Regarding the concerns expressed by Dr. McCullough on the mRNA vaccines (Moderna & Pfizer):

Many news sites this week have reported that the Novavax vaccine has just passed all its clinical trials and may be available in August/September. It is a traditional vaccine.

New York Times Novavax article:
https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/14/health/covid-vaccine-novavax.html

Below is a link to a long, detailed YouTube video where a physician (popular YouTuber “DrBeen”) explains the Novavax vaccine in detail and why it may be MUCH safer (lower possibility of side affects) option than the current three vaccines. Novavax just uses a nanoparticle with the inactivated spike protein itself plus an immune system booster – no mRNA, no viral vector, no entry of material into the cells at all. Dr. Been uses lots of good drawings and diagrams.

When Dr. Fauci testified in Congress, he admitted that only ~30% of his staff at NIH were vaccinated. It’s important to note that much of the information uncovered in his emails hadn’t been published yet. We should all be alarmed at the content. We read his professional position on the ineffectiveness of cloth & paper masks, the communications with Zuckerberg on what scientific info would be “permitted” on social media, the shady misdirection of Wuhan lab leak possibility, *comments on the use of cheap & effective treatments and preventative measures like Ivermectin, Hydroxychloriquin and supplements – which weren’t being discussed or studied*, etc….
WHY are vaccines still being pushed on healthy children, in light of the potential for injury and death? COVID-19 has killed approximately 300 Americans under the age of 18 – a minuscule percentage.

Doctors want to give pills that infected people can take conveniently at home when symptoms first appear. Toward that end, the Biden administration announced in June that it would spend more than $3 billion on a program aimed at developing next-generation antiviral therapies—not just for COVID but also for other viruses that pose a future threat.” 

“The Biden administration has already committed to purchasing 1.7 million courses of molnupiravir, should it be authorized for use.

Ivermectin is the precursor to Molnupiravir. Merck is ihe original manufacturer of Ivermectin. They have the formulation for it. But its patent expired in 1996. The organisation (including WHO, FDA, CDC, NIH) does not endorse IVM for off-label use to treat Covid-19 patients or as a prophylacis citing the lack of in-depth, peer reviewed clinical trials for its safety & efficacy. ( We should cite the same reason for rejecting the mRNA vaccines). However since its discovery of its ability to inhibit the virus’ multiplication in vitro, its use as early as May 2020 has spread to at least 30> countries notably in the poorer ones. The treatment using IVM includes taking together with zinc, Vit C, Vit D & selenium. Go to http://www.flccc.net headed by De Pierre Kory for a comprehensive info on IVM. Merck, the WHO, FDA & co has the truth to why they want to wait for Molnupiravir & not endorese the extremely cheap & easily available IVM that could have severely dimished the hospitalisations & deaths.

So, to be clear, you are claiming that a cardiologist is better qualified to determine the best way to handle an infectious disease than an immunologist? I mean McCullough’s publications are undoubtedly impressive in his chosen field of cardiology, but I feel like the “sainted” Dr. Fauci may have more relevant knowledge and experience as an immunologist and the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for the last 37 years. The again, some people may choose to call an electrician when a pipe bursts in their house. Someone on this discussion should be ashamed, but I’m not sure it is clk.

Lucky you – but what about the 620k Americans who have died from covid? I guess their antibodies didn’t kick in for some reason – THATS WHY THERE IS NOW A VACCINE TO HELP PEOPLE STAY ALIVE. smh

Many cd have been saved at home with early treatment with IVM or Hydrochloroquine but Drs were dictated to not treat except with zpack and maybe steroids. Many ended in hospital due to lack of early treatments which make all the difference. A disgrace to the medical field. Govts fault. They only cared about vaccination.

no government has any medical training. They should never ever interfere with The Doctors who have spent their lives working with patients. Any government that interferes with the medial treatments prescribed by qualified physicians need to be prosecuted as nothing less then murders. They need to be taken out and shot or hung. all of those thugs.

So very helpful, thank you. And I agree- we live in Montana and we don’t hear of anything how to quickly help with initial onset of Covid19. There’s so much fear and people pushing people, kids too to get vaccinated. We have quite a number of low-income families on state medical assistance in our state and I am very concerned that especially these groups won’t be informed at all about how to help treat Covid-19 at the early stages. I do hope many get to see this article.

The proverbial fox protecting the hen house. In other words, government is covering for vaccine manufacturers. Makes one wonder how much kickback is being funneled into the pockets of politicians and Fauci.

The sorry state of science literacy, how it has had a serious negative contribution to the pandemic, and what you can do about it, by being a vaccine advocate (credits to Shawn Otto and Ed Nirenberg): #VaccinesWork #vaccines #tweetatrician #pediatrics #pediatrician

The rise of QAnon and the antivaxxers has been a decades-old thing, and all the conditions necessary for the explosion of antivax content came together in 2020. Antivaxxers go way, way, back, even back to the invention of the idea of vaccines. 

Ever since there was science, science had a little bit of political power – why? Because anybody with enough dedication to the science could do it. If you were poor, but could earn a scholarship to school, that would make you instantly on the same playing field as the rich Swiss expat child able to go to the most expensive private schools. That is the reason why, political people, who are intent on fighting for their vested financial interests, are spending, and always have spent, lots of money to fight scientists. Apart from when science gets things wrong, scientists’ most serious failure is the overall lack of ability to advertise quite as well as someone like an Evangelist preacher, or Donald Trump’s TV shows. So, when big oil, or big tobacco, want to protect their financial interests – they pay politicians and lobbyists to help them do their bidding, and that politician is paid back by more terms in office. The geeky scientist is left out in the dust. They have fought this fight so well, that the quality of science literacy in the United States has steadily declined for the last fifty years, and therefore, normal American civilians have been left to fall prey to the most charismatic voice they hear on TV. A failure of science literacy is profitable to certain 
sectors of big business – which is why they perpetuate it. That science literacy is especially poor when their science teacher gave them a bad experience in high school. Our true enemies are the politicians and rich lobbyists who sow doubt against hard working scientists, instead of fueling society’s rise to better science literacy. 

Ever since there were people, there were people who:
– were opposed to authority
– were opposed to science 
– were opposed to the somewhat reductionist way of thinking associated with science
– valued political preferences over science 
– valued religious teachings above science 

But you know what? Science and religion absolutely can coexist. There are plenty of religious scientists and religious healthcare workers. 

Have you ever heard of a biochemist knocking down the doors of the churches, or an astronomer yelling in the streets that he found something new about Jupiter? I’ve never heard of such a thing. Have you heard a religious person do this? All the time. 

The scientific method, invented gradually over the ages, essentially preaches that you can discover anything eventually, if you dedicate yourself to only observable evidence, and make hypotheses that you can either support or refute. That’s all it is. Nothing mysterious or scary about it. The best way to NOT be scared about what you don’t know is to dedicate yourself to learning about it, using the scientific method. This is the most timeless human invention in the history of human inventions. No other organism has been observed performing the scientific method on Earth. It literally produced our entire modern world. The scientific method is SO important because human senses suck. Just one example – we can only see a narrow band of radiation in the Universe, the band of visible light. But there are Radio waves, microwave, Xrays, and Gamma rays – nobody can see them, but they form one of the many cornerstones of modern technology. Without mastery of Xrays, we would not have much of modern medical diagnostic imaging. Nobody denies Xrays because they can’t see them – and yet we still have germ theory deniers, COVID deniers… I could go on and on. 

Dedication to the scientific method sadly would be gradually lost over the next few hundred years of world history. 

In the days of Edward Jenner, you still had plenty of antivaxxers around, but because news traveled by horseback, they were relegated to the realm of small secret societies scattered from place to place. They could not unify because the communications network was not as developed. We could not count them because there were no consistent written records. 

Fast forward to 1940-1970s America, then you see the rise of the Evangelical preacher, and the attitude that “Christians are being persecuted”. I have no clue why that community feels persecuted by scientific discovery, other than to say that maybe they don’t like to hear views contrary to their world view. At the same time, an attitude of postmodernism was being taught all over the country, whose most serious flaw was to preach that the scientific method is “just another way to view the world”, which was equally as valid as getting all your science out of the Bible. TV was just getting started, so you had to still send snail mail and make phonecalls to coordinate with your other conspiracy theorists across the country. This was faster than messenger by horseback, but still slow. People were yelling about things like the Cutter incident (rightfully), and this was about the time when the VAERS system and the American vaccine court system was invented to help “vaccine injured” families. People still believed conspiracy theories, but could not coordinate. Remember those people who had to protect their vested financial interests? They were still paying money to protect themselves pretty continuously, and the level of science literacy in America was still steadily going down. The lengths politicians were willing to go to protect disasters such as Superfund sites, antibiotic scandals, the Tuskegee syphilis disaster, the Jeffrey Wigand / big tobacco scandal, oil spill disasters, and the opioid scandal, were essentially infinite. If you had enough money to pay for publicity to cover something up as a big businessman, it would be made a reality. This conversely led to a somewhat rational distrust of big business/ big pharma – which is one of the foundation stones of the antivax community. Remember though – the scientists didn’t do that by themselves, the authors of these scandals were the businessmen. Scientists did make mistakes – but many of the laws governing medical innovation in the modern era are there precisely BECAUSE of the mistakes of the 1940s-1980s. The laws healthcare workers have to adhere to are in place to protect the consumer. 

You then fast forward to the 1990s and the current age – the key missing ingredient to the disinformation explosion was the Internet. When a small, but loud minority, are able to curate well paid, 24/7 media, with slick internet websites, Facebook webpages, and Twitter feeds with antivax content – and you pair that with a COVID pandemic lockdown – people with no science literacy, are reading scary things, getting more anxious, messing with their mental health, and preying on their deepest fears with the assistance of folks with no moral standards. With all those ingredients mixed together, you get the modern QAnon/ antivax explosion. When you feel like there is nothing you can do to control a worldwide pandemic from an enemy you can’t see, and you perhaps come from a rural town, you put on your battle gear in the middle of some rural town and protest with your firearms (forgetting that you can’t shoot a virus). When you are a single mom trying to hold the family together, and you go home and you have a computer, but you don’t have the science literacy to know what is correct, you may become a Qanon member or staunch antivax activist, if you don’t have a strong voice of reason and reliable information in your household (which in itself is a serious health disparity). In 2020, all the ingredients required to form a disinformation explosion were present at the same time, and just like Voldemort rising from a cauldron, it only needed a staunchly anti-science government to light the fire. The mirage of conservative vs liberal science is just that – a mirage. Science has plenty of folks from all political leanings. With the implicit assent of the highest levels of power, quacks of all stripes like Del Bigtree and RFK were handed the platform that they had been waiting for, for decades.

Here’s what normal folks can do to fight back against the massive tide of disinformation: 

1. All our social circles added together are bigger than the antivaxxers social circles. We can all leverage our little social circles to beat out the antivaxxer social circles. 
2. Share stories of healthcare workers being normal people. Most of us don’t have the time, brainpower, or inclination to author a conspiracy, we already spend enough time doing prior authorizations. Researchers spend most of their time getting their grants rejected; even excellent laboratories get 90% of their grant funding proposals rejected sometimes. 
3. Formal vaccination informed consent is available at every visit. If you require the most detailed informed consent all the way down to the clinical trials and the package inserts, prepare your healthcare worker for this. It is doable but will take time. Physicians don’t have long appointments to give every single patient this opportunity not because they like it that way, rather its because corporate pressure forces it to be that way. Other times, other families just want the highlights, and thats fine too. 
4. There are very few rational reasons to be antivax. One example of a rational reason is to have a severe immunocompromise determined by a physician, that is a contraindication to live vaccines. An example of a well done, superlative vaccine investigation is the story of discovering antibody dependent enhancement for Dengvaxia. 
5. You too can be a vaccine activist (and in turn, advocate for the health of kids) – but remember your audience is those people on the fence. The extreme antivaxxers may come and reconcile with you eventually, but don’t hold your breath. You can be most effective for those families searching for reliable information. You can start for free – just use your social media platform. 
6. The burden of proof is on an antivaxxer to prove his or her point – not on you to refute her point. 
7. It is more productive to spread strong information than to directly fight the antivaxxers. Leave that work to the social media companies and advocate that they continue to do so. Report any staunch antivax pages that you see. 
8. Understand the credentials of the person you are interacting with when digesting vaccine information – is it a pediatrician, or some random person you met on Instagram? If I as a pediatrician wanted to learn how to fly, I would most definitely attend flight school, not learn from some lad living in his mom’s basement with a flight simulator. If I had no medical knowledge, I would most definitely seek out a mainstream pediatrician to ask about vaccines. 
9. When antivaxxers claim they aren’t out to profit – look behind the smoke and mirrors. Del Bigtree is actually selling bricks to pave his ranch so he can walk over your name. Sherri Tenpenny is selling 6 week $600 courses to teach you how to be a persuasive antivaxxer. If she gets 400 students per class session, she earns in 6 weeks as much money as a full-time new physician earns in a year. They most definitely grift. 
10. I as a pediatrician have yet to find any antivaxxer with a solid understanding of the pediatrics, immunology, infectious disease, epidemiology, or virology that they claim to fight against. They are really advertising that they were asleep through ALL their middle school and HS science courses. Would you like to see a pediatrician who was asleep during his pediatrics training? I wouldn’t. All of us mainstream pediatricians are happy to give you medical information at the level of detail that you are comfortable with, but you just have to prepare to use more than one appointment if you require intricate, detailed explanations. 
11. Remember vaccine advocacy is in the end about your personal health and safety and the health and safety of those around you. We as healthcare workers want everybody to live as free as possible from the landmines of vaccine preventable infectious disease.

Here’s a closer look at the article that likely started the hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin debate. I want to spend some time analyzing research so that the guests on this forum can see how mainstream physicians think in real life. The article is: https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.05.28.21258012v1

The authors hail from the St Barnabas Medical Center and the Smith Center for Infectious Diseases, which are two reasonably strong healthcare institutions in the United States state of New Jersey. 

I’m going to illustrate how to decipher one of these articles. Because scientific language is necessarily very precise much like legal language, this essay is necessarily going to be a bit wordy as I use lots of analogies to explain everything I want to explain. My goal is to – show folks the reasons why the HCQ/Azithromycin movement is based upon the scientific version of quicksand. 

The first couple of things to notice are – this study happened during the first two months of the pandemic, so there were necessarily fewer patients and therefore fewer data to work with. They had to pick an experimental design that had a compromise between rigorous and quick – fewer patients were available and at the time, few hard data were available on how to treat COVID other than perhaps oxygen, looking for bacterial infections, intubation, and steroids (which in the beginning were not yet shown to be effective). The authors picked an observational study. What does that mean? Read on. 

As we look at the very top of the article, they explicitly state that the article is a preprint. This means that the article was technically published, but had not undergone extensive peer review that was par for the course before the pandemic. Journalists were explicitly told not to grab these articles and portray them as bombshell news – but they did anyway. What these articles are very good at doing is- guiding future brainstorming ideas on how to create strong clinical trials, which actually happened – clinicaltrials.gov does contain very well done ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine trials in progress. On to the levels of evidence. 

The highest levels of evidence are randomized controlled clinical trials and meta-analyses of these randomized controlled clinical trials. Why does this exist? After you get above the complexity of lab bench chemical reactions, there start to be things called confounding variables, placebo effect, and nocebo effect. 

This expression means that apart from Thing 1 influencing Thing 2, there is another hidden Thing 3 in the background that is either difficult to detect or otherwise not directly observable. A real life example of this is the example of the alien trying to figure out why humans get drunk. If one day aliens arrived from Sagittarius, and they discovered the novel human behavior of getting sloshed, maybe they will decide to make an experiment. They get one lad to drink whisky, one lad to drink wine, one lad to drink beer, and one lad to drink gin. They discover that all the lads get drunk, and when they think it through, they discover that the drinks all have water in common. Then the aliens excitedly decide that water makes you drunk. Now we obviously know that this is the wrong conclusion right? If the aliens had also included a group that drank water, and compared it to the other experimental groups, they would have came to the correct conclusion that it is indeed alcohol that makes you drunk. This principle applies in a big way to scientific studies. How? If you wanted to determine whether a vaccine caused a heart attack, it would be very, very important of you to determine if the patient previously had heart disease before getting that vaccine. There is no vaccine on the planet that gives heart artery blockages to humans, but immune reactions can be powerful enough to exacerbate the ones that are already there in rare cases. 

On the placebo effect – there is a curious human effect that says even if you take a sugar pill (meaning a pill containing nothing of medicinal value), some of the time, you will get better. It is imperative that a new medicine that you want to try, does better than the sugar pill – otherwise why not just prescribe sugar to everyone? The way that new medical trials work is that they have to prove their medicine is better than doing nothing. 

On to the nocebo effect – there is another curious human effect that says even if you take a sugar pill, and you are told ahead of time that there may be side effects, you might experience side effect regardless of the fact that the pill initially given was sugar. The side effects may be real to you, and you might be having genuine suffering, but the initial substance that was given was something inert. Trials must also take this into consideration. A big place where this happens is in people dropping out of trials due to side effects. But why would someone drop out of a vaccine trial if plain water was injected into their shoulder? Trials must consider this rate of people dropping out. 

What is the most basic way that you ensure that you as the study designer, don’t fall prey to these eternal research design vices? Randomization. You assign all your patients randomly to the placebo group, randomly to the treatment group, and in that way, all the confounding variables, even future unknown ones, are distributed equally in your sugar water group and your medical group so you know they aren’t messing around with your results. In this particular article they decided they didn’t have the time to do this so they picked an observational study, which essentially means they watched how patients behave during their treatment regiment to see if a medicine in question was useful, without rigorously controlling for confounding variables. 

Back to the article – this is from 1 hospital in New Jersey, and they looked at the sickest of the sick – 255 people who were ill enough to need a machine to support their breathing. First big red flag to interpreting the data – 201/255 patients died prior to the study completion regardless of the medicine that was given to them. This is purely a statement of what a bad player COVID was. The medicines they examined were tocilizumab, convalescent plasma (plasma from those recovered from COVID, and hydroxychloroquine). This analysis will focus on the HCQ part – and 224/255 received this medicine. The rationale of why to use this drug at all was an older lab bench study that says if you got concentrations of HCQ high enough, they would inhibit viral replication. So at this point, your interpretation of the data should be – around 80% of the patients got hydroxychloroquine, AND around 80% of the patients died. This should be another red flag. Yet, the article authors claim that HCQ improved survival. Your next question should be – it increased survival, compared to which benchmark? 

When you read further, you see that the study authors define better survival as… compared to patients who were already on hydroxychloroquine to begin with for other medical reasons (such as lupus). They set a treatment dose of HCQ as larger than 3 grams, and a treatment dose of azithromycin as larger than 1 g. Their big claim that is now tightly wrapped into the identity of conservative pundits and fringe physicians is – that 37 of the patients, when analyzed using this comparison, had an almost 200% improved survival rate. First off, there is no historical clinical trial that has changed practice based upon 37 patients. Second – 18 of the 37 patients on which this comparison was based, died as well. If the groups had been more evenly organized, the different in survival may have vanished. This is something that is never explored on Fox News, Bitchute, or any of those other websites that extolls the virtues of hydroxychloroquine. 

Remember what we said about randomization? Right off the bat, the study groups were not relatively equal in their medical comorbidities. The group that was more likely to survive was already younger and had less medical problems from the outset. This is one of the serious problems of the observational study design. 

Reading further – you find that the study also quotes that 83% of the group who survived had NOT returned to their prior functional status. This drives home the point that, killing is not the only bad thing that COVID can do to you. It can profoundly affect your daily life. Only 3.5% of the original 255 patients went home OFF oxygen, WITHOUT difficulties with activities of daily living, and WITHOUT any hits to the brain. This again drives home how bad COVID can be. Again, this is something that is never explored on Fox News, Bitchute, or any of those other websites that extolls the virtues of hydroxychloroquine. 

Reading into the hydroxychloroquine dose further – they said that a 3g dose or higher of hydroxychloroquine dose was considered a treatment dose. This dose specifically, is cumulative. This sets the study up for something called “immortal time bias” (https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/article-abstract/2776315). What this essentially means is that you need for an experimental patient to survive long enough for you to measure the outcome that you want to measure. The net effect of such a problem is that you overestimate the benefit that a certain treatment can offer a population. In some circles this is known as survivorship bias. A very basic example of immortal time bias is – if you take a group of patients who were admitted to intensive care and offer them tea and biscuits, you might find that the group offered tea and biscuits do better. But – of course they were going to do better! They were not so ill that they could not drink the tea and biscuits. The sicker patients were not alive long enough to receive the tea and biscuits, so you couldn’t test it on them. This is a serious problem with this well cited, but ultimately flawed study. I don’t think the study authors had malicious intent when making this study design – they probably were making do with what was available at the time. However, a proper researcher needs to take all these things into account. Ms Wetzler does not, and Dr Mccullough might be a strong cardiologist, but a pandemic is not a free pass to conduct shoddy research. He more than anybody else should know strong research was done to create all the treatments used in modern day cardiology. Why did he abandon his dedication to solid research just during the pandemic?

The group above 50, and especially above 60, have the highest risk of getting COVID disease (and the risk is even worse when you take other health problems into account). Dr McCullough is completely wrong when he says that those in the 50s don’t need vaccination. There are proper clinical trials going on done in a rigorous time-tested fashion, and these exist on clinicaltrials.gov.

Growing data are showing that prior recovery from COVID infection is shaky in giving you immunity against COVID delta. 

One of the most important articles showing this – https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-021-03777-9

The technique used in this article is to gather convalescent sera (meaning antibodies gained after infection) from a few groups of people. They then tested whether or not the antibodies are effective in binding up 4 variants of COVID, including COVID delta. The most important column is the one where they compared the ability of people who recovered from COVID to generate antibodies , to the ability of people who were vaccinated against COVID to generate antibodies against COVID. The folks who recovered from COVID naturally had antibodies down near the limit of detection of the test (meaning as low as the machine can detect), while people who were vaccinated had a statistically significantly higher antibody response for COVID delta. They also tested the ability of monoclonal antibodies (lab produced antibodies) in neutralizing delta – and single antibodies had a little trouble binding up COVID delta (which is why antibody producers are turning to combinations of two antibodies). 
Strength of study – this measured antibody responses in real people. Limitation – its smaller number and lack of examination of T cell responses leaves cellular immunity not directly examined. How do we begin to partially address this? Combine this data with the much misinterpreted Cleveland Clinic study at https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.06.01.21258176v3 

What they did was to examine 52238 folks working at Cleveland Clinic, and sort out what happened to the cohort who was vaccinated vs unvaccinated in their ability to contract COVID. The completely unvaccinated group incurred the most COVID cases, whereas the vaccinated and previously recovered group incurred the least COVID cases. This is illustrated in the tagged graph. I will repeat – this does not mean don’t get vaccinated, the conclusion of the article was to prioritize vaccinating those who have never had COVID disease. The strength of this study was the large numbers, and the main weakness of the study is that it was completed before detection of COVID variants was mainstream. I repeat – this study does not say “don’t get vaccinated”, it says that vaccinations can be prioritized to the completely unvaccinated and unrecovered during the pre-COVID variant era. 

Now we try to directly answer the question – does COVID delta increase the risk of reinfection in those who recovered from COVID before? Due to possibly less potent antibodies, and waning immunity – the country that does the most variant tracking has found that it probably does increase the risk of reinfection (https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1005395/23_July_2021_Risk_assessment_for_SARS-CoV-2_variant_Delta.pdf). 

In summary – COVID delta is a bad player. Get vaccinated to protect yourself. Are people showing up in the hospital who are fully vaccinated? Yes. If we hypothetically vaccinated the entire population, *all* hospitalized COVID patients would be previously vaccinated. However, the data so far show that COVID reinfection in the vaccinated is largely causing mild disease, which was the whole goal of vaccination in the first place – to either protect you entirely or protect you from serious decompensation and intensive care unit level care.

Wait, one thing I seriously don’t agree with: the idea that hospitals themselves are in part responsible for witholding proper early treatment. The hospitals have been stuffed to the gills with people who are very ill and/or straight up dying, to the point where yes, people who are still fairly well despite contracting cannot get very direct care for a relatively new disease. You cannot make a reasonable argument that the staff of any hospital worth its salt are not doing all they can right now. I hope these SMDT treatments are effective and safe and get larger trials(all I’ve read so far seem more like pilot studies, I hope the sample sizes can increase in later review), but I don’t see evidence of suppression, I see a very stressed system that cannot attend to everyone right now.

How is this information helping anyone? Debunked scientific claims, snake-oil peddling, and the promise of salvation with prayer. Are we not learning lessons from the last year? Let’s continue to make excuses, spread lies and myths, and bank on conspiracy theories. Meanwhile, good people are dying, and economic recovery is delayed. If you want to do something useful get the vaccine. The only solid evidence we have of anything that works is the effectiveness of the stabby-jabby. Or, don’t get the shot, and continue to be a part of what is clearly becoming the “Red Scourge/Red Purge”.

I have learned when a nurse asked about treatment options at Tampa General: they give no meds – only oxygen if needed and then a ventilator if you get worse. No other meds that would help such as hydrochloriquine or other such options. We know when given early on, meds such as hydrochloriquine can save. My sister in law died because they allowed her to get beyond control and would not give hydro. At Mayo when asked for it. Because Fauci said no to hydro. He is a killer of truth and realty. Time for change!

Are these medical clinics in Vancouver even aware of the thousands of people across the US/Elsewhere who have “come down with the virus” even though they were already vaxxed? And how is that being diagnosed when the CDC is abandoning in December the very faulty PCR test? Nothing seems to add up here except that Big Pharma is making billions of $$$s.

In the information that I have gathered, I have come to the same conclusion on COVID 19. It is all about the vaccines. I was threatened to be removed by force if I didn’t comply with their mandates. Please keep up sending out information that will get to ordinary citizens so we can be kept well informed. I expect your youtube channel and facebook account will be suspended, what will your alternatives be? How can I get a copy of your video about the vaccines so I can share it? Thanks for all you do!

If you present with shingles, you’ll be given the vaccine and sent home to suffer.
The solution to shingles is the same a for all other virally triggered autoimmune diseases, nurture your immune system instead of hamstringing it with more challenges.

Thank you for listing the categories of medications that Dr. McCullough has researched. However, your statement that there is no evidence of children getting COVID or dying from it is false. Family friend’s 16 year old daughter got COVID in January in San Diego. She was a super-healthy cheerleader. She had to be hospitalized, but came home and all were happy and relieved. Then next day they found her dead in bed. The medical examiner revealed she had the British covariant. It was known to attack the heart. Had they known she had that variant, they could have applied effective treatment, known in Britain. As it was, the virus infected and overwhelmed her heart overnight.

I’m more concerned we will be losing benefits we have like health insurance premiums increasing for unvaxxed or them not paying if you are hospitalized.
No Medicare or social security problems down the line etc. Already in the works. Since the vaccine is about power and control who knows what’s to come.
We are living in the new lawless loss of rights era.
I believe we are in a Science Fiction movie that never ends.

Most can’t get supportive care. My parents were told go to the ER if your O2 gets below 90 and they couldn’t even get in to be seen until their symptoms were gone and after being quarantined in a Drs office setting. They were given a list of OTC vitamins to take. 

A single steroid shot and a short round of antibiotics for those who are seen isn’t enough. That’s what I received. I had to beg for breathing treatments. 

If you are seeing the same results with the protocol they are using, it’s obviously beyond time to think outside the box. 

Has anyone been given Budesonide and albuterol? It was what gave me the relief my lungs needed. Very cheap and FDA approved medications.

We lost our Dad to Covid on 8/15. And our mom just came home from the hospital on 8/16. No one should have to go through what they have. He was part of the Covid relief team for TEEX and the State of Texas. He believed in helping everyone. We need more people in Government to start thinking about the people. Not their pockets.

What if one or more of these treatments kill you. Who do you sue? If you are too stupid to get vaccinated – you certainly wouldn’t want to undergo treatments with even less data on safety and effectiveness. Put all antifaxers in a big room and let Darwin sort it out.

Hydroxychloroquine is sold over the counter in most countries outside the US. It’s been around nearly 70 years and is considered essential and safe by WHO. It’s approved for use in pregnant and lactating women and babies. Ivermectin 40 years and they found 75 reports of adverse event reports world wide over 40 years.
Both have better safety profiles than aspirin!
Your concerns are unfounded. It’s the vaccine killing and maiming tens of thousands and we still dont know long term effects.

I am not anti-vax, however, I too think that assisting patients early with protocols that give them the best chance to fight and recover seems to have taken a back seat in a world in panic amidst misinformation and misunderstanding. I appreciate hearing about aids to recovery that I can use. I work in allied health in NSW and it is mandatory to have the flu vaccine. It will become mandatory to have covid very soon. I would rather have not had either. However, I also have responsibilities to vulnerable clients. Thank you for sharing these strategies. For the seriously compromised in hospital I think this might be promising – https://www.asahi.com/ajw/articles/14350603
