Rolling Covid-19 Health Information

category national | health / disability issues | news report author Sunday May 10, 2020 01:10author by 1 of indy Report this post to the editors

This page will contain updates and tips on how to stay health and any known measures to boost the immune system and help prevent getting ill from Covid if you are in he vulnerable group. The key advice though is to boost your immune system by taking Vitamin C and Zinc. Vitamin D which can be generated by your body's skin in sunshine is also very good and is well known to protect. Getting outdoors into fresh air and walking, hiking or swimming are all also excellent ways to improve your immunity. Eating good nutritious food rather than junk food is another important component of boosting your immune system.

Role of Vitamin D

This paper: Optimisation of Vitamin D Status for Enhanced Immuno-protection Against Covid-19 here. from the Irish Medical Journal outlines how Vitamin D or being in the sunshine helps boost your immune system.

This is completely contrary to the government advice to older people to stay indoors where their immune system will steadily go down

From this report https://www.medpagetoday.com/infectiousdisease/covid19/85596

It reports:

As a public health specialist at the National Institutes of Health, I outlined how a lack of sun-induced vitamin D in the winter and early spring leads to epidemic acute respiratory infections (and this probably includes viruses like COVID-19). That review, cited almost a thousand times, argued that groups with low vitamin D levels -- the obese and the elderly and those with dark skin -- may require 5,000 IU of vitamin D each day to obtain the 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels of 50 ng/mL that appear to protect against viral respiratory infection.

A government-sponsored research strategy to address this issue has not been developed, as officials explained that there was no mandate to explore an alternative to the existing vaccination program. However, other researchers picked up the ball and provided convincing evidence that vitamin D could reduce the incidence of acute respiratory infection.


Covid-19 Cures

Hydroxychloroquine is a drug widely used for malaria. It is a mass produced, safe and very effective treatment for Covid-19. It is readily available and cheap. It has been used by the Chinese and has been shown to cure Covid-19 after treatment and have significant benefits within hours. The cost of Hydroxychloroquine works out at approximately 10 cents. Keeping people in hospital can goes up to €1000 per day.

Instead government have opted to go for invasive treatments like intubation (i.e. respirators) which is highly intrusive and can trigger off inflammation in the lungs. Only a small percent of those who go on respirators survive. On the other hand hydroxychloroquine is being ignored. This is criminal negligence.

Lockdown Lowers Immune System

You must boost your immune system. The immune system needs to be constantly challenged. Therefore it is healthy to be out and about. Staying in doors and not getting any exercise, fresh air or sunshine means your immune system will steadily go down.

The longer people stay locked down, the greater impact on mental health as well. There will be a second of illness from all the people staying locked down and because of lower immunity they are at a greater chance of getting all types of diseases. For people who already are borderline developing heart disease, cancer, diabetes, strokes and various aliments run a very high risk of tipping full blown into these conditions and will die but it will not be from Covid but because of the lockdown.

Vaccination and Old People

In an interview on the Lancet Voice podcast (Eps 11 May 20th) Arne Akbar Professor of Immunology at UCL, London pointed out that the vast majority who get severe disease are older. He said: It is well known that vaccination doesn't work very well in older people as the immune system goes downhill as you get older and is very hard to energise after vaccination. It wont work equally well in young and old people which is why other therapies should be considered. These should include anti-virals. Drugs to subdue parts of the immune system can be used since people with severe disease over react with inflammation because immune system is not as controlled and these drugs can be used to turn down the inflammation. A Key factor in the whole disease is the aging aspect in the fact that aging and vaccination are not very good together. This thereby verifies that the obvious approach should be to find ways to boost the immune system in both old and young people and this should be strongly encouraged but it is not given near enough emphasis as vaccination.

Dallas Physician Heals COVID Patients Successfully with non-FDA Approved Hydroxychloroquine

Dr. Ivette C. Lozano from Dallas, Texas recently addressed a crowd during a rally to express her frustration over successfully treating COVID patients.

She claims that patients were coming to her because they were being turned away from hospital emergency rooms and other doctors, and were simply being told to go home and quarantine themselves “to save the rest of society” without getting any treatment.

Dr. Lozano said she received no help from the American Medical Association, the Texas Medical Association, or the Dallas County Medical Association on how to treat COVID patients.

She explains how she heard about Hydroxychloroquine from the President Trump press briefings, and how this drug had been used successfully to treat COVID-19 patients in other countries. It is a drug with a 60-year history of being safe, and it is inexpensive.

So she started prescribing it to her patients, and they were feeling better and symptom-free within 24 hours.
