A little perspective...
Here we are again in August 2021 with a new surge in
Let's take a moment to refresh your memory on the best ways to avoid contacting this serious health threat.
sayThere's an enormous amount of controversy about the vaccine and the emerging new variants.
It's important to note that all living organisms seek to reproduce and flourish. Viruses such as Covid are no different they will find a way around any measure that attempts to eradicate them and produce variations to improve their ability to invade a host. Independent researchers are questioning not only the efficacy of these vaccine, but also the further reaching consequences of their employment. It's important to look at all sources of information.
We have seen this variant phenomenon in the case of the AIDs virus which mutated and defied treatment for many years. In the same way, staphylococcus and other bacteria have become immune to antibiotics becoming more deadly with each passing year. Our reliance on the "magic bullet" approach will become outdated as we apply the intelligence and understanding that nothing beats natural immunity.
The BTH Blog, The State of Health and Wellness in America outlines the flaw of these forms of treatments.
Covid is preventable...
And is much more treatable than say AIDs for example. Let us not lose perspective and fall into fear!
See the BTH Blogs, "Fear not the Covid" & "Is it Covid?" for more information.
Be aware or wary of some treatment recommendations...
Circulating throughout the medical community, including many Naturopathic practitioners is the FLCCC Alliance's suggestions for prevention and treatment of Covid. There may be a questionable connection between the FLCCC Alliance and drug manufacturers, but I have not found conclusive evidence as to the agencies or donors who may be financing this organization.
The FLCCC Alliance's treatment plans call for the use of two pharmaceuticals. Ivermectin and Fluvoxamine (Prozac). Ivermectin an anti parasitic used primarily in animals and an SSRI uptake inhibitor manufactured by Merck under the name Prozac.
There is no conclusive evidence to suggest that Ivermectin is effective against any viral infections, including Covid.
The FDA Website has this to say about Ivermectin.
"The FDA has not approved Ivermectin for use in treating or preventing Covid-19 in humans. Ivermectin is not an anti-viral. Taking large doses can be dangerous and can cause serious harm."
Several public health experts too are against the usage of the drug. “There is apparently no role of Ivermectin in management of covid-19. Both should be removed from all guidelines till robust evidence is generated. Ivermectin maker (Merck) and WHO both have strongly advised against it.
Merck, an Ivermectin manufacturer in the US, also came out with a statement on the use of this drug during the pandemic saying that the Merck scientists continue to carefully examine the findings of all available and emerging studies of ivermectin for the treatment of covid-19 for evidence of efficacy and safety stating...
“It is important to note that, to-date, our analysis has identified--no scientific basis for a potential therapeutic effect against covid-19 from pre-clinical studies; no meaningful evidence for clinical activity or clinical efficacy in patients with COVID-19 disease, and; a concerning lack of safety data in the majority of studies," the company said in a statement.
Although it is interesting to note that the US government plans to spend 1.2 billion dollars to support Merck in spite of the companies insistent statements regarding the use of Ivermectin as an anti-viral?
A CNBC report cites...
"a recent announcement by the US government, that they're entering into a contractual agreement with Merck where they're going to commit $1.2 billion of taxpayer money in order to enrich Merck"
GAVI.org an organization that works to provide legitimate vaccines for underdeveloped countries has this to say about Ivermectin. "The antiparasitic drug was thought to be a potential treatment for Covid-19, but there isn't sufficient information to recommend it's use, despite widespread support online"
GAVI provides a unique view of additional booster vaccinations for Covid in this article "If we're not careful booster vaccines could end up giving the coronavirus a boost"
As to the use of Prozac as an anti inflammatory medication. There is evidence to suggest it does provide some anti inflammation support, however what is the final result of using an antidepressant as an anti inflammatory. There is not much to say about this! Ask yourself how many people will get onto Prozac and decide, "hey this isn't so bad". Who's the winner, the drug manufacturers!
SSRI uptake inhibitors, antidepressants have a definite down side to these drugs noting that common side effects of long term use are loss of motor control, tics, twitches, muscle spasms, immobilizing fatigue and tremors.
An excellent article outlines the controversy, "Die with a smile: antidepressant against Covid-19" presented by For Better Science author and researcher Leonid Schneider.
Many researchers are engaged in independant analysis....
Many may disagree but, the science surrounding the "vaccine" is debatable and experimental, based on success in using this technology with cancer treatment regarding the emerging vaccine side effects and efficacy. Long term effects of this form of genetic modification are unknown and many choose not to get vaccinated.
View current research studies.
Let's allow others to make the choice they feel is best for them without judgement. The media, government and pharmaceutical companies benefit from the fear and controversy, avoid the panic trap!
The National Library of Medicine offers many resources for current research and statistical information.
