Hydroxychloroquine

Well the BS about Hydroxychloroquine is all a fraud. It does work. Get it started early with Zinc and your chances of ending up in hospital are very very slim. The WHO and Lancet and AJM had to retract their comments from 3 weeks ago as studies slammed them.

No money for Pharma so they push all the other crap where they can make Billions including Remdesevir made by Gilead ( Soros and Gates and Fauci ) ...seeing the picture now.

Dr Zalenko in NYC treated over 1500 patients successfully! His study is out this week . Hydroxy is safe and has been in use for 60 years so people, STOP buying into all the Media lies please.

I totally recommend blackseed oil for corona virus. It's my cure all savior. I ingest a teaspoon of the oil with turmeric tea and lime juice, first thing in the morning, half an hour before breakfast, and it does wonders. I've been doing this for almost 6 years and have not got a cold or flu since.

Several of my family members have been cured from covid19 using this magical oil.

Lugol's Iodine
Posted by Luann (Indiana, USA) on 10/23/2020
5 out of 5 stars

My husband and I both came down with the Covid-19 symptoms and after a few days I knew we had it. So I did some research on Lugol's Iodine 5% solution and this is what we did.

We both used 6 drops of this type of Lugol's liquid solution in our morning cup of coffee, then put 6 more drops into a glass of water, was just plain well water from our faucet and we drank this twice again during the day...so was a total of 6 drops in coffee or water 3 times a day.

The coughing stopped on for both of us within an hour or so of taking the drink and by the fourth day the coughing hadn't came back, as well as the headache and body aches, fever, chills, just feeling totally rott'in and we felt completely well.

We didn't stop taking this for fear the virus would come back on us so we took this amount daily for a couple of weeks more. And we had no reaction from this amount of Lugol's iodine other than it killed the virus for us quickly and easily and we had no ill side effects from using it. I am not telling you to do this but just relaying my experience with using the iodine.

By the way, I'm 67 yrs old and my husband is almost 70. I read up on using this Lugol's Iodine 5% solution and many years ago this was the preferred method of healing as it kills better than any antibiotic. It said it was used for and kills viruses, bacteria, parasites and they have been researching it and say it's being used for cancers. So do your own research on it and don't believe all of those nay sayers, I didn't and I'm so glad that I used it. To each his own I guess.

Cinnamon Oil

I've been killing viruses with just cinnamon oil. Rubbed on soles of feet and palms it sweeps through the whole body very quickly. Follows the nervous system. Recently hit by an aggressive viral lung infection, I found inhaling the fumes off the bottle for only 5 minutes destroyed it. It also really wakes up the brain.

Try Black Seed Oil, it has been used for thousands of years. I'm 90 years old living in Florida and expect to make it to 100. I have affirmed that no "plague" is going to come near my body. Please spread this information. Black Seed Oil will KILL all viruses except DEATH LOL

Baking Soda and Coconut Oil

PREVENTION FOR COVID-19 USING BAKING SODA AND COCONUT OIL.

Coronavirus is very sensitive to pH value and temperature of its surrounding. According to an article titled “Conformational change of the Coronavirus Peplomer Glycoprotein at pH 8.0 and 37 degree centigrade”, coronavirus multiplication stops if the pH value is more than 6.0 and if the pH value is 7.0 or more, the count of coranavirus will come down continuously. But if the pH value is 8.0 or more very briefly, coronavirus will not survive. But if the pH value is 5.0 or less, coronavirus will multiply very fast. People with Covid-19 will have most of coronavirus in their air pathway of breathing system. Also, coronavirus normally enter the body through nose and mouth. If one keeps the air pathway alkaline, chances of becoming Covid-19 is very low.

Prevention.

Prevention can be done as follows: Mix one teaspoon of coconut oil with one fourth teaspoon of baking soda thoroughly. Then take one half of this mixture and apply inside the nose using Q-tips. Mix the remaining mixture with one half cup of warm water and gargle it. This can be done for about 2 to 3 times in a day.

Treatment.

If one has mild to moderate Covid-19, it can be treated as follows: First treat with baking soda and coconut oil as explained for prevention. This will target coronavirus in the air pathways of breathing system. The following two steps can be followed:

1) Alkalize the body. There are many different ways to alkalize the body. One can choose any one of them. But lemon is a natural substance that can alkalize the body very quickly. One can take warm lemon water. The quantity of alkalizing substance taken is adjusted so that the morning urine pH is in the range of 7.0 and 7.5.

2) Consume antivirals so that the residual coronavirus is eliminated. Antivirals can be any one of the following: Aspirin, Zinc, garlic, mustard oil, antiviral herbals, etc. Antivirals will not work efficiently if the coronavirus multiplication is not stopped. So, the pH value of its environment should be more than 6.0.

Best wishes.

P. Raghavan.

Hydroxychloroquine
Posted by John (New Brunswick) on 06/25/2020

Again you can get side effects with aspirin. Dr Zalenko in Nyc had no issues with it in very ill patients. He said that he sends more people to the hospital using Motrin and having bleeding ulcers from it than Hydroxychloroquine. Its been used for 60 yrs to treat Malaria and Lupus and too many people are listening to CNN and NBC . All of these side effects came to light when Big Pharma knew it was working to treat Covid and saw no money. The WHO and Big pharma are ultimately to blame as well. How about taking Vit C and Zinc and Vit D and you cut your chances dramatically from getting ill with this. The media has poisoned peoples brains over the past 12 weeks. I know they used Chloroquine in 2005 but it still has the same effect on the Covid strains. This will come to light when these studies get released OR it gets covered up again.


Hydrogen Peroxide in Nose
Posted by Jim (Murrieta, CA) on 04/27/2021

One Day Cure for Covid

Must be done when symptoms first occur.

Dilute the normal 3% solution of Hydrogen Peroxide with 9 parts water in a nasal sprayer.

Sniff a stream of the solution (not a mist, must be a short squirt) up each nostril, wait 30 seconds then blow your nose. Do NOT do this excessively, it does kill good and bad cells. I did this 6 times the first day. The second day I felt fine, but, I did the treatment 3 more times. On the third day I felt better than fine, I felt great!

(Note: several treatments may cause some blood speckles when blowing your nose. If so, STOP! I got some blood speckles which was not any problem, and no pain. I just waited 2-3 hours before the next treatment)

I am NOT a Doctor of any kind.
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Now, 3 months later, and have felt great SINCE DAY#2, zero symptoms, zero side effects, zero vaccine.

At 70 years of age, this treatment worked quite well for me!

Have a Nice Day.

THIS should go viral! 🤣

My sister, her husband and her four kids got Corona, even her newborn got infected severely.

On my recommendation (I am not a doctor, only an old reader of Earth clinic ) she and her husband took 5 drops of Lugols Iodine 5% three times a day. In addition to Lugols Iodine they took 1,2 tablespoons of Coconut oil two times a day. She gave Iodine and coconut oil to her kids too.Kids' dose is 3 drops of Lugols Iodine thrice and 1 or 2 TB of Coconut oil.

Besides these remedies, they took panadol and vitamin C from the local doctor's advice. Adults gargled with warm salt water and iodine water too.

With the grace of God Almighty they were all relieved and Cured just in two days. After two weeks they tested negative for Covid 19. I personally use this protocol for the oral herpes, I start it seeing the first sign of tingling on my lips, always works, want to share on Herpes cures page too.

Because you need to take hydroxy with zinc. Zinc is the critical piece as well. You can still get covid but the outcome should not be as critical.


Coconut Oil

Dear Laurie, coconut oil effectively kills the corona virus by dissolving the outer lipid protecting the virus. This outer lipid is what keeps the virus undetectable by our immune systems. I cured near death acute respiratory distress syndrome in my lungs by nebulizing MCT coconut oil directly into my lungs. This saved my life. Eating coconut oil daily also killed it in my digestive tract. Here is my vlong: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoIBoIgPKpI And here is some scientific literature on coconut oils effectiveness against Covid19. https://bit.ly/2X136cq


Baking Soda and Coconut Oil
Posted by Paracelsus (Orlando, FL) on 12/10/2020 45 posts

Great but insufficient. Why would you merely gargle with baking soda? No, drink it. Every time I get a virus, I take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) in water 6 x on the first day. On the second and third days, I take 4x and 2x half a teaspoon in water. I never get sick. This isn't dangerous. Your own body produces sodium bicarbonate. This recipe to fight the cold or flu used to be in the Physician's desk reference book published by Merck from what I read. So yeah, the fastest way to alkalize your body is simply by following the above recipe. Good luck all!


Cayenne

Cayenne capsules are LIFE SAVERS, prevents covid19 induced stroke, heart attack, and blood clots; 70% of fatal cases had blood clot, 40% of ICU and severe home cases have blood clots. Canadian & US doctors prescribe blood thinners to even mild covid patients, sent back home, to prevent blood clots. Topical Himalayan pink salt will remove pains from kidneys and lower back.

I've had corona, now day 78. I'm 36; was a vaper until I got worst case corona cytokine storms, which have a 40% mortality rate. On day 58 I took two cayenne capsules, I was not prepared for what was about to happen. I felt the cayenne go into my lungs and completely clear them out. My lung pains and kidney pains are nearly totally gone now. Himalayan Pink salt finely ground in a coffee grinder placed under the kidneys in bed cured them over night. See my videos for more information. I had also posted previously about cocoa being effective for covid19... well it turns out cocoa also treats thrombosis which is caused by covid19, which causes blood clots. It also turns out cloves are the best iron reducer on earth, free iron oxidative stress is caused by covid19's attack up on hemoglobin as well, so get on cloves.

Ivermectin

My daughter and I both got COVID at the same time. Her symptoms were quite severe, and we had just read about ivermectin. We found some animal grade Ivermectin at our local tractor and feed store in the horse section. It's for deworming horses, but don't be alarmed. Within 24 hours we were both much better and within three days we were almost completely well. Farm and Fleet also carries it. I've seen very credible doctors on YouTube who said that it would not hurt to take the veterinary ivermectin. I can tell you it didn't hurt and it cured us both for only $3.95.

Aspirin

I also found reference to aspirin's role in dissolving the shell viruses hide in - which I suppose makes sense of the "take two aspirins and call me in the morning" advice of days gone by. And it seems to me that the advent of "Tylenol" and the demonizing of aspirin coincides with the increase in cancer.

I've been taking two regular strength aspirin every few days and am experiencing some herx. Primarily, a rash I've been chasing all over for a couple of weeks. I didn't put the two together until I saw ORH's post about Facebook and EC's response regarding borax.

Definitely some fishy stuff. Conspiracy? Who knows but it makes one think about exploring every substance the media has demonized over the course of the skyrocketing stock prices of the patent medicine racket.


Hydroxychloroquine
Posted by Tracy (Okc, Ok) on 08/02/2020

The studies you refer to were addressed by the Frontline Doctors in a Press Conference in Washington. DC. The 11 studies you refer to used very high doses of hydroxcloroquin and that's why they were ineffective. When used in proper dosage, this drug is safer then aspirin. The Frontline Doctors are not the only ones using it with success. It was used at the Henry Ford Health Center in Mich with 2,500 people. Dr. Immanuel in Houston used it with 350 patients along with Zinc and irthymyicin. Not sure of the spelling??? Her oldest patient was 92. All 350 patients survived!!!

This German biologist is something else and explains why sometimes we need anti-oxidants and sometime oxidants. He shows just how stupid our medical leaders are. In any case, all need to know how to make and use CLO2. Tired of sleeping in a recliner and just bought a bed system that your head and/or feet can be elevated. Getting old is no fun... for certain.

Virologists Report Poor Man's Amino Acid Cure for Covid-19 Would Abolish Need for Vaccines

Source: https://beforeitsnews.com/tea-party/2021/02/virologists-report-poor-mans-amino-acid-cure-for-covid-19-would-abolish-need-for-vaccines-2643136.html

Move over hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, two widely extolled prescription medicines used to treat COVID-19 viral infections. A natural cure for COVID-19 that is widely available and affordable for even the poorest of people on the planet has been confirmed by a team of virologists who have spent a lifetime studying the underlying causes of viral infections.

Backed by decades of research and safety data for herpes-family viruses, U.S.-based researchers at Bio-Virus Research Inc, Reno, Nevada, report on the successful treatment of the first 30 frontline doctors and nurses and a thousand-plus patients given the amino acid lysine to prevent and even abolish COVID-19 coronavirus infections at a clinic in the Dominican Republic. Astonishingly, symptoms of COVID-19 are reported to have dissipated within hours of this natural treatment.

The medical staff at a clinic in the Dominican Republic was coming down with two cases of coronavirus per month before lysine therapy was instituted.

The virologists, Drs. Christopher Kagan, Bo Karlicki and Alexander Chaihorsky, strongly suggested the front-line healthcare workers embark on a daily regimen of lysine therapy due to daily exposure to the virus. Their ground-breaking report is published online at ResearchGate.net.

Arginine/lysine balance

Lysine therapy interrupts the replication of viruses, including COVID-19 coronavirus, by countering arginine, an amino acid that fosters the eruption of dormant viruses. Lysine has been safely used for decades to quell herpes virus outbreaks that cause cold sores on the lips (herpes labialis), a treatment pioneered by one of the Bio-Virus Research team members in 1974.

Lysine is available in foods and in concentrated form in inexpensive dietary supplements (250 500-milligram lysine tablets can be purchased for under $5 US or 2-cents per tablet), making affordable lysine therapy possible.

Lysine/arginine imbalance would explain why patients who have been infected with COVID-19 have recurrent infections, even after vaccination.

Lysine Rx in Dominican Republic

The daily therapeutic supplement regimen for the medical staff in the Dominican Republic consisted of 2000 milligrams of lysine capsules along with restricted dietary consumption of arginine-rich foods such as nuts, chocolate, orange juice, pumpkin, sesame seeds, wheat germ.

The Bio-Virus Research team found doses of supplemental lysine up to 4000 milligrams to be safe and effective.

Foods that have a high ratio of lysine over arginine such as eggs, tofu, fish (not raw), sardines, cheese, meats such as pork, poultry and red meat, and yogurt) provide a high ratio of lysine over arginine, thus blocking replication of all coronaviruses including COVID-19.

According to the virologists who were interviewed by this reporter, over 1000 patients have now been successfully treated with surprisingly rapid dissolution of symptoms and return to health. Even severely infected COVID-19 patients have been able to come off the ventilator with lysine therapy, say doctors.

Third-party validation for lysine therapy

Writing in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases another research team based in New York and Texas reports that arginine depletion is a strategy to quell both coronaviruses and other herpes family viruses.

In 2016 researchers documented that lysine impairs the growth of coronaviruses in a lab dish.

The Bio-Virus Research team are not loners nor out on a scientific limb. A report, published in the Journal of Antivirals & Antiretrovirals, is what prompted to the current discovery that was put into clinical practice in the Dominican Republic. The science was in place prior to the announcement a mutated coronavirus was sweeping the globe which no one had immunity towards.

Dietary intake

The Recommended Daily dietary intake of lysine is 2660 milligrams for a 154-lb (70 kilogram) adult; 3640 milligrams during pregnancy.

Dietary intake of lysine in western populations ranges from 40-180 milligrams per day per kilogram (2.2 lbs.) of body weight, or 2800-12,600 milligrams for a 154 lb. (70 kilogram) adult.

It is the balance of arginine to lysine that controls the eruption of dormant viruses in the body. The average intake of arginine is estimated to be 4000-6000 milligrams per day.

Availability of lysine

Lysine is largely produced by the tons for animal feedstuffs. Roughly 2,200,000 tons of lysine are produced annually. There is no shortage.

Billions may benefit

The most frequent medical application of lysine therapy has been the quelling of active herpes infections (on skin, lips, etc.), and eradication of Epstein-Barr infection, Bell's palsy, etc.

If lysine lives up to its promise as a universal COVID-19 antidote for therapeutic and preventive use, unless billionaire Bill Gates buys up and mothballs all the lysine production plants in the world like he has bought off agricultural land, and bought off news media, vaccine makers and politicians, the need for vaccines will become a moot and meaningless practice for COVID-19.

Because of the long-term safety record of this dietary amino acid, the public can take lysine as a non-prescription preventive “medicine.”

Epidemiologists baffled by low rate of coronavirus infections in India

Despite its large population and poor sanitation, disease trackers are baffled by India's low rate of coronavirus infections. Maybe it is India's lysine-rich diet of yogurt, lamb, chicken, fish curry that protects its population from viral disease. The striking difference in the country-to-country prevalence of Herpes Simplex-2 infections (only 9.6% in South East Asian countries and 10.7% in Europe vs. 24.0% in the Americas and 43.9% in Africa) could be explained by the lysine/arginine ratio in native diets.

Treat the severely ill; skip the problematic vaccines

Vaccination is not fool proof. Vaccinated patients are testing positive for COVID-19. Doctors can choose to treat the 3 in 10,000 COVID-19 severely infected patients who are at risk for a mortal outcome with lysine rather than needlessly vaccinate billions of people. Mass vaccination would not be needed, nor would lockdowns, quarantines and questionable mass face mask use be required. The pandemic would be rapidly extinguished by a public information campaign regarding lysine-rich foods and dietary supplements. The public can take action on its own today without adverse consequences. Literally, trillions of dollars would be saved worldwide. If not for COVID-19, at least for herpes infections.

The shame is on the World Health Organization with a budget of $8.482 billion or the Centers For Disease Control with a budget of $7.875 billion that overlook safe and economical cures like lysine. This report serves as evidence the world is being gamed to plunder the masses of their health and wealth. The people of the world need to stop heeding advice from public health officials and practice preventive medicine on their own volition.

There is additional evidence that lysine also halts the growth of influenza and coxsackie viruses.

I got cured of the Epstein-Barr virus but following the directions I learned here at earthclinic: 2 tablespoons of coconut oil every 8 hours. The coconut oil was virgin coconut oil buy Nutiva that's the better stuff. I was fine in four days maybe it'll help with this virus called Coronavirus. I remember when I asked the doctor so what's the cure for mono which is Epstein-Barr virus. He replied there is no cure I said how long as it lasts is two weeks to two years, I headed straight for earthclinic. Come and found this link right here and was cured in four days no problem. Praise God!

I had back pain after few days of covid sympthoms first appeared, occasional coughing. The pain mostly worst in the morning when I just woke up & became better after I was using heating theraphy lamp or sun bathing. But after few days, the pain only gone for few hours and come back again. Then I remember reading in earthclinic of using clove oil for curing bone virus. I tried the clove oil+vco, because clove oil is so hot, I thought I needed carrier oil. The pain immediately gone when I rubbed the oil. It didn't feel hot at all, then I tried only clove oil without mixing it with vco. To my surprise, it didn't feel hot at all & had immediate effect on pain.

So please it you have covid body pain, please try to rub clove oil, hope it helps. The virus is very cold, all sympthoms worsen at night or colder time, please don't use aircon & eat warm/hot food to helps & remember to breath deeply. Hope all are well & recover soon.


Elderberry Extract
Posted by Jerald (CA) on 01/28/2021
5 out of 5 stars

I am 80 yrs. old and last year when this virus started, I started having runny nose and sniffles. I started using a Black Elderberry tincture I had made several years ago. I started taking 1 tsp. in a cup of water once a day and in a few days it had stopped. I have used this all year and have had no symptoms of COVID-19.

Instructions

  • To make it, you need 1/4 lbs. of dried black elderberries. (must be Sambucus Negra).
  • Clean a quart jar, add 1/4 lbs. of fired elderberries. Now fill to the top with vodka 80 proof. Put the lid on tight. Store in a dark cupboard and shake once every few days.
  • Label and date your jar. Let it sit for at least 30 days before you stain it. You can use it without straining it also and it will continue to get stranger.

Preventive. Adult - 1 tsp. in water once daily.

Children. scale back by weight.

For flu, HSN (bird flu) and other viruses, take 3 x a day in water. You can let it sit for 30 mins or so and some of the alcohol will evaporate.

All tinctures are made with alcohol.

With these new strains coming around, I now take 1 tps in water in the morning and one before I go to bed.

I got this recipe from a doctor at the Herbal Healing Academy who passed away several years ago. Hope this helps someone. Blessings and take care. Jerald.

My husband's aunt and I got COVID-19 at the same time after getting together for lunch. We both had a general ill feeling and loose stools for 3 days. Last Sunday, I had difficulty breathing. I thought I was going to have to go to the ER.

I mixed low sodium V8 Juice (the low sodium is high in potassium and chloride) with juice from a lemon & lime and horseradish and celery seed and Worcestershire Sauce which contains vinegar, molasses, onions, cloves, garlic and chili pepper extract. I alternated that with 8 ounces of hot water mixed with 1/4 teaspoon iodized salt.

I also ate small pieces of raw garlic. I also took a nasal spray that contains sodium chloride. I rinsed my mouth with hydrogen peroxide mixed with water in a 50-50 combination per bottle instructions. I rubbed hydrogen peroxide on my face and hands. I don't have food grade hydrogen peroxide. After an hour my severe symptoms subsided. I continued to take small bites of the raw garlic every couple of hours and took sips of the salt water the rest of the day. I also ate pineapple which is high in enzymes and had chicken soup made with brown rice, salt and chicken bone broth. The bones had been simmered in water with a dash of vinegar for 6 hours.

I relayed this information to my husband's aunt. I was able to perform day to day duties on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. My only subsequent symptoms are a sporadic cough. My husband's aunt was in the hospital on Tuesday. On Tuesday afternoon the hospital discharged her. She was not allowed to eat or drink anything while in the hospital because they were running tests. The hospital confirmed she has COVID-19. The only treatment she got before leaving the hospital was a shot containing anti-coagulant medicine. Yesterday my husband's aunt had a severe sore throat and was laid up in bed. Her husband was fielding phone calls to let her rest.

Recent evidence in COVID-19 biology indicates there is significant reproduction of the virus in the nose and throat during the first five days of symptoms.

I have a glass of orange juice in the morning as part of my daily routine for Vitamin C, calcium and vitamin D. I take a vitamin D supplement and calcium carbonate supplement for my osteopenia. I take a pre-natal vitamin for vitamins and minerals and extra methylfolate. I am 60 years old. Going forward while the pandemic rages on I am going to switch back to white towels and white sheets washed in detergent and a small amount of bleach since bleach kills COVID-19 in 5 minutes. I bought a mold and mildew cleaner for the bathroom that contains sodium hypochlorite. I am washing my masks every 3 days. I am going to keep hydrated with spring water. I use iodized salt and sea salt while cooking. I have wild oregano herbs and oil of wild oregano in my arsenal if needed.

According to Doug Kaufmann from Know the Cause, chlorophyll in greens (spinach, broccoli, romaine lettuce, kale, etc.) is one of nature's great “detoxifiers”, anti-fungals and anti-mycotics. Fiber (eg. vegetables, oatmeal, ground flax seed) binds up toxins and eliminates them from the body.

I am going to try to get 50 grams of protein every day which is the RDA for some-one my height 5'11". I am going to get protein, fats, carbs, fiber, vitamins and minerals from food like salmon, cod, chicken, grass fed beef, chicken liver, turkey, eggs, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, peanut butter, walnuts, spinach, kale, raw almonds, yams, broccoli, beans, carrots, kiwis, oranges, grapefruits, chick peas, parmesan cheese, dried parsley, dried oregano, basil and cilantro. I eat fortified raisin bran cereal with half a sliced banana and 2% milk occasionally. I have a cappuccino every morning with 1/2 cup milk blended on high in the blender for 10 seconds and then heated with a tablespoon of coffee. I am going to look into the food grade hydrogen peroxide.

I don't know what the outcome will be for my husband's aunt. She is ten years older than me and is suffering greatly. She is limited to what she can take because of severe acid reflex. I have a 77 year old friend that had COVID-19 in February. He was in and out of the hospital over the course of 14 days. He received oxygen and a blood transfusion and a strong antibiotic while in the hospital and went home with an oxygen tank. It took him several months to recover. He uses a vaporizer with mineral salts every day.

Thank you Earth Clinic for getting vital information out to those struggling with disease. Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy holiday season!

MMS

My mom of 78 had Covid. Dry cough extreme headache, no strength whatsoever almost even to walk. No fever but body pains, pain in the lung area.. Stomach pains.. She took MMS with 4%hcl (citric acid has many side effects) 3 to 4 x a day 4 to 6 drops (varied).

Two days later, she was TOTALLY normal.. It was almost unreal.. Of course I was in tears as I love her a lot. Am taking it myself now for heavy metal detox as I read hair root tests after two weeks showed no more heavy metals. They put this stuff in bloodbags to kill Hiv etc and viruses. (look it up) also in our water. But to use as a cure they are so scared as there wd be no more money for Pharma and taxes.

They shout it is Bleach. It is NOT. I'll prove it, hydroxine peroxide H2O2 and water H2O, are they the same? No. Well the difference between Bleach and Chlorine Dioxide is ALSO one 0xygen molecule taken away... And as different as Hydroxine peroxide and water, so is Bleach and Chl. Dioxide.

Seriously, it's worth. Keep doses low, max 4 drops or 6 when you have Covid. Start low and when you feel any detoxing going too fast, go little less.. If any effects, it is from dying off of viruses or pathogens or fungus. When you don't take it for a while (been 3 hours, take vit C. Non acidic is better for your tummy for some of us who have hyper acidity)

Strength to you in these trying times.

Black cumin seed oil can prevent the coronavirus from spreading in your system and kill it. Recommendation of 1 teaspoon 3 times daily as a preventative measure. There is scientific research behind this.

I also read research where black seed oil (Nigella Sativa) cured the HIV virus to the effect of no HIV virus trace in the patients system.

The coronavirus may cause a cytokine storm syndrome, your body goes into overdrive to kill virus cells and that can become lethal. Black seed oil inhibits and protects you from this cytokine storm syndrome. If anyone has the virus and has bad symptoms, please try pure black cumin seed oil. It can help. If it's bad that please up the dose to deal with the symptoms. I would recommended 10ml 3 times a day that cured the HIV patient. Also boil the oil and breath it in it will help with the chest congestion / pneumonia even asthma.

Google Crede oils and search for black cumin or seed oil. This is a good brand. If anyone does try these who is infected with the coronavirus please provide feedback. The prophet (peace be upon him) said that black seed cures everything besides death. Thanks

Ivermectin inhibits the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein from binding to ACE2 receptors in human tissue: Ivermectin, a common anti-parasite drug, has shown great efficacy in the fight against covid-19. For the first time, medical researchers have documented how ivermectin docks to the SARS-CoV-2 spike receptor-binding domain that is attached to the ACE2 receptor. In this way, ivermectin effectively inhibits viral attachment and replication, assisting a precise antiviral response that can target the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein at its most advantageous cleavage site. The researchers showed how ivermectin interferes with the attachment of the spike protein to the human cell membrane.

Ivermectin is a simple medicine derived from the bacterium Streptomyces avermitilis. It weakens and kills parasites by interfering with their nervous system and muscle function. Ivermectin targets the glutamate-gated chloride channels in the parasite's nerve and muscle cells, bolstering inhibitory effects in the parasite's own neurotransmission. As the chloride ions permeate, the parasite's cells are hyper-polarized and then paralyzed, resulting in their demise.

In this study, ivermectin docked in region of leucine 91 of the spike protein and at the histidine 378 of the ACE2 receptor. The binding energy and constancy of ivermectin was also measured and found to be sufficient at the ACE2 receptor, proving the anti-parasitic molecule a powerful force for blocking viral attachment of SARS-CoV-2.

Ivermectin blocks SARS CoV-2 at the ACE2 receptor in humans

The 17 randomized controlled trials that use ivermectin for early treatment and prophylaxis report positive effects, with an estimated improvement of 73 percent and 83 percent, respectively. Out of 37 early treatment and prophylaxis studies for ivermectin, 97 percent report positive effects. One of the studies documents how ivermectin inhibits the replication of SARS-CoV-2 in vitro and displays broad-spectrum anti-viral activity against the causative virus (SARS-CoV-2). This study showed a 5,000-fold reduction in viral RNA after just 48 hours.

The study also proves that effective treatments and prophylactics can mitigate the replication and spread of a virus thousands of times faster than the paranoid, isolationist approach of social distancing and lockdowns. If antivirals were encouraged early and often, then the spread of actual infectious virus would have been mitigated at rates thousands of times faster than the insane method of treating everyone as if they are infectious. By treating actual infections where symptoms are present, the spread is reduced at magnitudes thousands of times greater, while conveying immunity instead of terror.

The SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is designed to attach to angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) in humans. To see whether ivermectin could dock at this receptor site and block viral attachment, the researchers used a program called AutoDock Vina Extended. This docking study showed the crystal structure of the SARS-CoV-2 spike receptor binding domain. The researchers looked specifically at the human ACE2 receptor and calculated the root-mean-square deviation (RMSD) of its atomic positions. A lower RMSD value indicates a more accurate docking capacity. When the RMSD value is three or greater, no docking has occurred at the receptor site. Ivermectin did not dock at nine of the locations; however, it did dock at the leucine 91 region of the spike and histidine 378 at the intersection of proteins between SARS CoV-2 and the ACE2 receptor complex.

Previous studies proved ivermectin's efficacy, but had to use high concentrations of the drug because the study relied on African green monkey kidney epithelial cells, which do not express the human ACE2 receptor. SARS-CoV-2 is specifically equipped to infect human ACE2 receptors, so this study could prove ivermectin to be effective in much smaller dosages. Clinical trials are now underway to determine if ivermectin is an effective treatment for covid-19.

The global conspiracy to suppress effective anti-viral medicines

The World Health Organization, the FDA, and the NIH have repeatedly suggested that no antiviral treatments exist for covid-19, even though multiple antiviral herbs and drugs have been studied during previous SARS and MERS epidemics and found to be effective. This time around, many of these antivirals were used with great effectiveness by doctors who were willing to go out on a limb and save lives.

Chinese hospitals used various antiviral herbs to treat covid-19 patients. These hospitals studied the effects of the herbs for impeding virus-cell receptor binding, for stimulation of the host's immunity, for blocking virus entry into host cells through action on the host's enzymes, and for prevention of SARS-CoV-2 RNA synthesis and replication. The research found numerous phytochemicals to be effective, including: quercetin, ursolic acid, kaempferol, isorhamnetin, luteolin, glycerrhizin, and apigenin. The top three most effective plants for treating covid-19 included licorice root, (Glycyrrhiza glabra) chicory root, (Cichorium intybus) and hibiscus flowers (Hibiscus sabdariffa). A number of antiviral plants contain compounds that target all three antiviral targets, including olive leaf (Olea europaea), white horehound (Marrubium vulgare), black cumin seed (Nigella sativa), garden cress (Lepidium sativum), Judean wormwood (Artemisia Judaica), guava (Psidium guajava), chrysanthemum (Glebionis coronaria), and Maryam's flower (Anastatica).

Medical systems around the world are not properly equipped to strengthen the human immune response or understand what individuals need to overcome an infection. When it comes to fighting infections, the US FDA and European drug regulators parrot the same narrative of ignorance and apathy, withholding viable antivirals from the public. By the way, this is the only legal way to bring experimental vaccines to the global marketplace, by proving that no effective treatments exist. This suppression of science on antiviral treatments has paved the way for emergency use authorization of experimental vaccines and forced countless patients to suffer (and die) on ventilators, without treatment.

I live in South America in Ecuador. Two days ago I woke up with terrible chest pain, cough, high fever and a very bad sore throat. I bought Ivermectin tablets in advance for a case like this. The package has 4 tablets and costs $2 here. I took two tablets on the first day and by the following day evening I was back to normal, no cough, no fever, no chest pain and no sore throat. On the 3rd day I finished the regimen by taking the remaining 2 pills from the box. Ivermectin works like magic.

My name is Randell Stroud. I have studied Alternative medicine and herbolgy for years. Since we are in flu, cold and Covid season, here is my protocol to prevent against and fight virus infections. I personally CURED my Corona virus infection in 6 days following this method.

1. Sleep- get 7-9 hours a day. Sleep is when your body repairs itself. Sleep is critical for restoration.

2. Water- drink a minimum of 1.5 liters of clean water or healthy freshly juiced beverages. Our bodies are mostly made up of water. We lose 2 cups of water a day just by breathing! Avoid caffeine while sick or anything that dehydrates.

3. Vitamin D3 - getting 30 minutes of sun contact a day will give you enough vitamin D. This vitamin is actually a hormone which regulates nearly every function in your body including your immune system. If you are darker skinned or stay inside alot, you need to supplement with at least 1000 IU per day. (5000 IU if you're deficient or fighting a cold. Get a blood test to check your level.)

4. Emergen C: if you hate taking nasty multivitamins, this product is great at ensuring you get your daily supply of essential minerals and Vitamins to support a strong immune system and repair damaged tissue. (Take 2times per day if sick)

5. Panax Korean Ginseng: An herb used in traditional Asian medicine for thousands of years, this herb energizes your system, helps regulate insulin and blood sugar, increases circulation, builds immunity and has a mild anti-viral compound as well as a mild stimulant effect. (Dont take at bedtime). 500 to 1000 mg per day should suffice. Take with food

6. Exercise- exercising atleast 3 days a week for an hour with cardio and weight training will boost immunity, lower depression, and build a stronger skeleton.

7. Garlic- putting a few cloves of fresh crushed garlic in a warm soup is a great idea. In fact, eating one clove or two of freshly crushed garlic mixed with honey per day, is a guaranteed way to lower cholesterol, kill viruses, bacteria, and cleanse your body. Garlic may stink, but the health benefits are so good!

8. Yogi Detox tea: this tea is great to drink while sick. It contains many herbs like mullein and Burdock, which break down mucus and have slight anti-viral compounds. Look for blends that contain milk thistle as well. This herb is great for the liver! The liver is responsible for filtering blood and toxins in our body! This herb is so good, many alcoholics have reversed cirrhosis of the liver conditions by using it.

9. Olive Leaft extract: my all time favorite herb! This herb has been shown to lower cholesterol and prevent alzheimers. Like ginseng, it is also great for type 2 diabetes sufferers. Olive leaf is also a POWERFUL anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial agent. Some users have reported a remission in herpes and HIV after taking this herb in therapeutic doses. I personally saw an abscess be cured from olive leaf alone. Taking 1000mg per day, or more while sick, should suffice for most. Take with food such as buttered toast. Fat content helps to transfer nutrients.

10. Prayer/religion: Those who engage in prayer, meditation, and belong to a religious community tend to live longer and have lowered stress levels. Stress saps immunity! Prayer and meditation will lower your stress hormones allowing you to sleep deeper and reduce inflammation. Being a part of a community helps combat loneliness and depression as well.

Note: Be sure to introduce herbs one at a time and evaluate yourself every few days. Watch out for any adverse reactions. Research dosages according to individual needs. Cycle on for 6 weeks and take 2 weeks off all herbs to avoid any overdosing and to prevent tolerance to herbs. Avoid smoking cigarettes and limit alcohol and fast food consumption. Check with your doctor or research any interactions with prescribed medications) you can experiment with dosage depending on body weight and tolerance. I weigh 175lbs. If you're bigger, or smaller, you may need more or less.

Hope this helps. Pass it along and share for those who need stronger immune systems more than ever now!

Povidone Iodine Nasal Spray
Posted by Rob (Kentucky) on 08/29/2020
5 out of 5 stars

Povidone Iodine Nasal Spray are now being issued to front-line health care workers and hospital patients for covid19 related illness.

Note from Rob: I am writing and presenting this article to Earthclinic in the hope it will help someone or a family member reading your forum with a compromised immune system. Covid19 seems to be hitting them the hardest. It has become “blasphemy” in America to speak publicly about cures for covid19. I am a herbalist and back in early November 2019, people were coming to me with some screwed up symptoms which I called an SSV (some sorta virus?). I did not know what it was, so I was giving them my Cold and Flu Remedy. If they were able to treat their symptoms fast enough within 48 hours, they were over the flu(?) in about 12 hours.

For every 24hrs over the 48hr mark untreated, you can add another 12hrs to recover. Then in late December, rumors started coming out of China about a virus with the same symptoms I was treating. Huh, imagine that… And as of today 8/2020 it's still knocking it out. What I am trying to say is don't believe everything the media and your politicians are telling you. Here are cures out there, their just too cheap, all natural and big pharma can't make a profit on it.

This treatment is not a cure for Covid19. It is meant to reduce the viral load inside the nasal cavities where the covid19 and other micro-organisms collect and become dangerous. Summit Biosciences, Inc. announced this week it had been awarded a contract from a Seattle-based pharmaceutical company, Atossa Therapeutics, Inc., to fast track the development of a nasal spray to be used on patients who've been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus but who “have not yet exhibited symptoms severe enough to require hospitalization, ”according to the press release.

Lexington KY pharmaceutical company developing nasal spray to treat COVID-19 (Press Release) https://www.kentucky.com/news/coronavirus/article243092566.html

COVID-19 is a viral respiratory disease that often initially settles in the nose — one of the most widely used tests to determine whether a person actively has the new coronavirus is a nasal swab — which is why the company is working to produce a nasal spray. Typically, as the infection becomes more severe, it will move to the lungs, where it can become deadly. The point with this drug is to catch it early enough, before that happens.

In order for the virus' spike proteins to take hold in a person's nasal cavity, certain cells in the mucus must first activate that viral spike protein. This nasal spray would inhibit that activation process, acting as a “barrier inside the nose to prevent virus entry”.

Researchers at the University of Kentucky in three clinical trials to treat symptoms of those who've already tested positive for the virus and help them avoid needing to be hospitalized, and to develop a drug that prevents transmission of the virus. “We are looking for a therapy that prevents people from having to go to the hospital, or if they happen to be in the hospital and are not critically ill, [from] becoming critically ill”.

One of the clinical trials involves testing the efficacy of an iodine nasal spray to protect people who are at especially high risk from contracting the virus, including frontline health care workers.

Summit Bioscience's nasal spray would be targeted toward healthier people who've tested positive but don't have severe symptoms. To be used at home, the nasal spray would work to keep them from developing those symptoms as well as to slow the infection rate, overall, putting their immune system in a better position to fight the virus. The goal is to eventually commercialize therapies for patients “on both ends of the spectrum, ”— those healthier patients well enough to be treated at home, and sicker patients who may require a ventilator.

DIY Povidone-iodine Nasal Spray:

Regularly use 2 – 5 times a daily with a Nasal Spray Irrigator and home-made saline. University of Kentucky Hospital, USA did the study. Study subjects will use betadine saline sinus rinse for period of 7 days.

Povidone iodine is a powerful antiseptic and disinfectant. In contact with skin and mucous membranes povidone iodine works quickly and has a microbicidal effect (causing the death of a broad spectrum of bacteria, fungi, viruses and protozoa).

Recipe #1:

Material needed:

*30 ml empty nasal spray bottle

*Distilled water

*Sea salt

*Baking soda

*Povidone-iodine 10%

*Empty clean water bottle

*Peppermint oil (optional)

1. Add 1 teaspoon sea salt and 1 teaspoon baking soda to empty “clean” 17 oz water bottle.

2. Add distilled water to bottle, cap and shake til salt and baking soda have completely dissolved. This is your saline solution.

3. Add 3ml of Povidone-iodine (you want it strong since Povidone Iodine solution 5% has only 0.5% available iodine) to the empty nasal spray bottle. 2 drops peppermint oil (optional but it is a good anti-inflammatory). Top bottle off with your saline solution.

4. Use this spray twice in each nostrile 2-5 times daily for afew weeks to resolve sinus infections, congestion and polyps.

Recipe #2:

Material needed:

*Saline Nasal Squeeze Bottle (New with saline water inside purchase from store)

*Child medicine syringe or similar device that measures in milliters

*Povidone-iodine 10%

1. Remove nasal tip from Saline Nasal Squeeze Bottle.

2. Estimate how much PVP-I to add to nasal bottle based on how much saline is inside. General formula is 1ml PVP-I to every 10ml saline water.

3. Using the child syringe, remove the same amount saline water as you are going to add in.

4. Re-cap nasal cap to bottle. Shake well and spray up each nostile.

The science behind this:

Povidone-iodine (PVP-I) is a broad-spectrum antiseptic with activity against bacteria, fungi, and viruses. It has been previously used in both intranasal preparations against Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) as well as oral preparations in in-vitro studies of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (SARS-CoV), Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV), influenza H1N1, and rotavirus with good efficacy. This study will evaluate the efficacy of PVP-I as prophylaxis in Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID19)-negative for front-line health care workers and hospital patients.

The highest concentration of viral covid-19 particles resides within the nasopharynx. The virus is thought to spread via respiratory droplets with the potential for transmission via inhalation of droplets, contact to the nose and mouth with infected materials, and airborne transmission. Given that frontline workers are involved in high-risk procedures including intubation, bronchoscopy, proning patients (which can lead to droplet production) and in some cases are reusing PPE, finding ways to reduce viral load or viral exposure are paramount.

In this study, front line healthcare workers will be asked to complete a pre-participation survey and screened for COVID positivity. They will then be given premade PVP-I gargles and nasal sprays, as well as a calendar card to mark compliance. PVP-I nasal spray and gargle (10% diluted 1:30) will be used prior to the start of a shift, during "lunch break", and at the end of shift. First, the nasal spray will be sprayed in the nose (2 sprays each nostril). For adequate coverage, the participant should be able to taste the iodine or see it in the back of the throat. This should be left in place for 30 seconds. Then, the participant will gargle the solution for 30 seconds and not have anything to eat or drink by mouth for 30 minutes. Treatment will continue for 3 weeks, or until the healthcare worker presents with COVID symptoms. Participants will then be tested for COVID positivity and asked to fill out a second questionnaire assessing study tolerability. At completion of the study, they will be asked to turn in their calendar card to assess how many applications they were able to complete.

Given the high rate of asymptomatic carriers, a second arm will also be planned for patients who have a 7+ day hospitalization or who are set to undergo a significant surgical procedure. These patients will be offered participation in the study as well and will be given the same questionnaire and undergo preoperative testing if they consent. For patients in the study group, PVIP gargle and nasal sprays will be applied preoperatively or shortly after admission and enrollment in the study for the non-operative group. The patients will then be retested in 2 weeks or as directed by the presentation of symptoms concerning for infection with SARS-CoV-2.

Due to the known breadth of its antiviral activity and similarities in molecular structure, it can be extrapolated that PVP-I should have robust activity against SARS-CoV-2. Eggers et al found that at a concentration of 1% there was a reduction of viral activity of 99.99% in in-vitro assays. At 2 minutes, a concentration of 0.23% was enough to reduce viral loads appreciably (meaning measurable).

Introduction:

There have been significant concerns noted regarding infection of health care workers and subsequent nosocomial spread within hospitals. Data from the epidemic in Wuhan by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention noted that 63% of infected patients in Wuhan were health care workers.1 A study of hospitalized patients at a tertiary care center in Wuhan noted that 12% of patients and 29% of health care professionals had acquired COVID-19 from nosocomial spread. Particular concern has been expressed regarding the safety of otolaryngologists, patients, and staff during routine and endoscopic examination. Reports have demonstrated high viral loads of SARS-CoV-2 in the nasal cavities, nasopharynx, oral cavities, and oropharynx, with the highest viral loads within the nasopharynx. In vitro studies have demonstrated that the tissue of the nose and mouth have high expression of ACE2, the main receptor of COVID-19. Nasal goblet and ciliated cells had the highest expression of ACE2. Due to high viral load, these areas are sensitive for diagnosis of the virus. The transit of virus via coughing, sneezing, and aerosolizing procedures makes transmission high. Aerosols of SARS-CoV-2 have been detected in the air for up to 3 hours. There are concerns that many otolaryngology procedures generate aerosols, which was proven for intranasal high-speed drilling in a cadaveric study.

Transmission reduction by the minimization of aerosolized virus is of key importance. Given that the nasopharynx and oropharynx are principal reservoirs of active SARS-CoV-2 virus, there has been immense desire for an approach to nasal and oral decontamination in the era of COVID-19. Povidone-iodine (PVP-I) has been suggested as a topical solution. PVP-I works by releasing free iodine, which disrupts microbial metabolic pathways, destabilizes structural components of cell membranes, and leads to irreversible damage to pathogens. It is a potent virucidal via inhibition of N1, N2, and N3 neuraminidase as well as inhibition of hemagglutinin. This inhibition blocks viral attachment to cellular receptors and inhibits viral release and spread from infected cells.

Protocols have been recommended regarding nasal and oral use of PVP-I in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, and there has been much discussion regarding the implementation of these practices. A protocol was developed in the United Kingdom recommending 0.3 mL of 0.5% PVP-I solution via each nostril and 9 mL via the oral cavity in conscious COVID-19 patients and persons under investigation (PUIs) prior to undergoing procedures in and around the mouth, as well as in health care workers performing these procedures. In unconscious patients, they recommended applying 2 mL to the mucosal surfaces of the oral cavity. Use was recommended every 2 to 3 hours in health care workers exposed to these patients up to 4 times per day. Another protocol from Pittsburgh recommended 240 mL of 0.4% PVP-I in the nasal cavity via sinus rinse delivery bottle and 10 mL of 0.5% PVP-I oral wash every 2 to 3 hours up to 4 times per day in patients with COVID-19, PUIs, prior to high-risk procedures, and in COVID-19 hotspots. They recommended this procedure in health care workers prior to and after care of COVID patients, PUIs, high-risk procedures in COVID hotspots, and in the setting of inadequate PPE. Parhar et al concurred with the use of PVP-I based preparations to reduce viral loads of coronavirus as there was demonstrated efficacy. An anesthesia guideline for operative room care in the COVID-19 era recommended 2 doses of nasal PVP-I within 1 hour of incision for all OR cases. The American Dental Association guidelines for minimizing risk of COVID-19 transmission recommended preoperative use of 0.2% PVP-I mouthwash for all procedures.

To minimize toxicity when using PVP-I as a repeated application, most protocols recommend concentrations of PVP-I between 0.2% and 0.5%. Because nasal and oral viral loads are similar in asymptomatic and symptomatic patients3 and can persist in convalescent seroconverted cases, some of these protocols recommend the use of PVP-I in asymptomatic patients. Unaddressed in any report to date is a discussion of the interdependence of PVP-I aqueous concentration, chemical stability, reported toxicity, and known biocidal efficacy.

Most commercial PVP-I preparations suitable for sinonasal or oral application are aqueous concentrations of 10% PVP-I or 5% PVP-I intended for presurgical antisepsis. Although additional scrubs, solutions, swab sticks, and other PVP-I containing products are available in the 5% to 10% range, many contain additional salts, sudsing agents, and cosolvents that should be avoided in the nose and mouth. Most are specifically labeled for external use and carry warnings against exposure to eyes, ears, and mucosal surfaces. The chemical stability of PVP-I in aqueous solutions at room temperature declines with dilution, alkalinization, and contact with common low-density polymer packaging materials.22, 23 Naturally acidic aqueous PVP-I solutions reach a critical stability inflection point at about 0.75%.24 Paradoxically, studies have shown that the antibacterial activity of full-strength 10% PVP-I increases with dilution.25 Between 10% and 1%, there is an exponential increase in efficacy which plateaus between 1.0% and 0.1% before decreasing again from 0.1% to 0.001%.

Our objective is to present established uses of PVP-I in the sinonasal and oral cavities and outline the safety profile through the discussion of clinical and in vitro toxicity. In addition, we aim to discuss PVP-I efficacy against coronaviruses and its potential use specifically against SARS-CoV-2 to inform the otolaryngology community regarding its use.

Results:

Povidone-iodine has been safely administered for up to 5 months in the nasal cavity and 6 months in the oral cavity. Concentrations less than 2.5% in vitro do not reduce ciliary beat frequency or cause pathological changes in ciliated nasal epithelium, upper respiratory, or mucosal cells. Adverse events with oral use have not been reported in conscious adults or children. Allergy and contact sensitivity is rare. Chronic mucosal use up to 5% has not been shown to result in clinical thyroid disease. PVP-I is rapidly virucidal and inactivates Coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).

Covid comment, no opinion:

I was at the dr yesterday for a covid test (to calm daughter for Christmas gathering) and overheard the pharma rep talking to the doc. He said they did a study of Ivermectin in covid patients. 200 hospitalized patients in each category, mild/moderate/severe Covid. 100 in each group got ivermectin, the others placebo.

Of those receiving ivermectin, 1 in the severe group got worse, 2 in the severe group showed no change, ALL the rest showed dramatic improvement. Just another nugget of info for you to consider. Also, I asked the doc about people who come back to work after quarantining with covid. He said, yes, they will shed dead virus that can infect you and, yes, you can get it through your eyes (any moist membrane). So, bear that in mind, too.

Hydroxychloroquine

Here's an open letter from 3 doctors to Dr. Anthony Fauci regarding all the negative statements he has made about hydroxychloroquine. This letter contains all the answers to all the questions anyone could possibly have about this product. I just hope Fauci reads it. If he does, he will never let the public know because the letter exposes him and all his lies and its not a pretty picture. Warning, it is a very long letter but well worth your time. https://www.zerohedge.com/medical/doctors-pen-open-letter-fauci-regarding-use-hydroxychloroquine-treating-covid-19
