COVID: Going to the root of the poisonous tree August 20, 2020 NoMoreFakeNews.com Before I jump in, I want to point to a film that hacks away the leaves, the branches, the trunk and the roots of the poisonous tree of vaccination all at once: VAXXED II, directed by Brian Burrowes. I urge you to watch it. “Urge” is too light a word. What is coming down the pipeline at us, in terms of attempts at vaccine mandates…this film will only strengthen your resolve, even if you’re quite sure you don’t need strengthening. The film contains many interviews with parents of vaccine-devastated children, and the children are there, too. The children who have died are there as well. Nobody has ever made a film like this. We DO need to drill down to the roots of the poisonous tree. Some people make this calculation: “I don’t want my view of COVID to appear too radical. That would drive the audience away. So I’ll cut myself off at a certain point and try to give the audience pieces of the puzzle they can digest…” For example, they would assert: “I’m not against vaccines. I just want to make them safer.” They would say: “We have to agree there is a new virus spreading around the world. If we don’t, people will reject everything we say. So let’s focus on whether the virus is as dangerous as health officials claim it is.” They would say: “We have to accept official case numbers as a starting point, even if untold numbers of people are being diagnosed with COVID by a casual glance at their symptoms, and even if the tests are inaccurate…” Bit by bit, and piece by piece, people would be accepting the official COVID story, until there is very little to argue about. Let’s take the issue of safer vaccines. How are they going to be made safer? Manufacturers are going to throw in the towel and just eliminate the toxic adjuvants? They’ll eliminate the injected germs which are the very basis of the exercise? They’ll make vaccines in outer space, where, hopefully, contamination with random viruses would be avoided? The synthetic genes they insert in the body will magically refrain from creating many horrendous ripple-effects?
Dispatches from the War: the trial of John Q Citizen John Q found himself in a small courtroom. The lighting was dim. He’d been brought there to stand trial for a minor offense. He was trying to remember what it was. Not wearing his mask? Not keeping his distance? Breaking curfew? The judge was sitting behind a table on an elevated platform. The judge began speaking— You think you’ve been arrested because of some little item. You’re wrong. What we’re talking about here is reality. The picture frame and your place in the picture. Your life is INSIDE. That’s the deal. Whether you agreed to the terms is beside the point. Once you’re inside the picture, you’re expected to take on all the duties of a law-abiding citizen. That’s your ID package. No exceptions. It doesn’t matter what the rules are, you follow them. You’re supposed to get a haircut and a shave, that’s what you do. You’re supposed to wear a suit, you wear a suit. You’re supposed to fall in line, you get in line and wait. If one day the crap hits the fan and everything goes blooey, you wait for orders. Some days are sunny, sometimes it rains. You have other dreams, you ignore them. You’re carved down into a shape. You assume that shape. You live according to what that shape is supposed to do. You’re a CITIZEN. You aren’t anything else. This is a one-time offer. Today we fine you. If you show up here again, we stick you in jail. You and all other citizens put together are a PATTERN. We don’t expect you to understand it, we just expect you to do your part. What else do you think this IS? Stop testing the limits. The limits aren’t going to move. Everybody starts out thinking he’s a foreigner to reality. He’s taking a look-see. He’s checking out the situation. But that’s not the way it is. We’re here to make sure everyone gets the message. Once you’re in, you’re in.
Hour 2 ENCORE – Special Guest – David J Blyweiss, MD
David J. Blyweiss, MD began his medical career as a clinical pharmacist in South Florida prior to earning his medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine in 1982. This dual background allowed him to appreciate the relevance of conventional pharmaceutical/surgical based treatments in acute medical conditions, but also to recognize where these approaches fell short in treating the vast majority of patients who suffered from the chronic degenerative diseases of “western civilization origin”. Over the last twenty years, with the nutritional medical knowledge base expanding in the fields of nutrigenomics, proteomics and other related “orthomolecular” disciplines directed towards patients’ biochemical individuality, Dr. Blyweiss became an early adherent, experienced practitioner and now teacher of what would become known as “functional medicine”. Dr. Blyweiss has used this matrix of systems biology to effectively manage and alleviate the symptoms related to the most “difficult-to-treat” conditions by addressing the underlying causes, helping to guide the body to heal itself.
In association with Humana Medical Plans, as an affiliated provider, Dr. Blyweiss also served as member of, and subsequent chairman of, the Quality Assurance Committee and Physician Credentialing Committee from 1985 – 1990. He is adjunct faculty at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine helping to train both future and practicing physicians in “functional medicine” . He is both a local authority and international speaker on a multitude of important medical subjects with a functional medicine approach. Dr. Blyweiss was one of three researchers doing the early work on chlorhexidine (phisohex, hibiclens) while earning his first post graduate degree at Temple University School of Pharmacy. During medical school he worked with the World Health Organization in vaccinating children in the island nation of Grenada. He was a team member of the physician relief program in Kendall, Florida after Hurricane Andrew in 1994. He has traveled the world, most recently to Gabon and Croatia working closely with teams of specialists to identify new plant life and natural products for possible human benefit. He has consulted for and created state-of-the -art nutritional supplements for multiple nutritional companies since 1999. He helped form Eden Laboratories Ltd. doing regenerative medicine research in Belize, CA. He is currently in private practice in South Florida where he resides with his family.
Higher BPA exposure linked to increased risk for all-cause mortality Higher bisphenol A (BPA) exposure is associated with an increased risk for all-cause mortality in a nationally representative cohort of U.S. adults, according to a study published online Aug. 17 in JAMA Network Open. Wei Bao, M.D., Ph.D., from the College of Public Health at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, and colleagues conducted a nationally representative study involving 3,883 adults aged 20 years or older from the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2003 to 2008 who provided urine samples for BPA level measurements. The researchers identified 344 deaths during 36,514 person-years of follow-up, including 71 deaths from cardiovascular disease and 75 deaths from cancer. The risk for death was higher for participants with higher urinary BPA levels. Comparing the highest versus the lowest tertile of urinary BPA levels, the hazard ratio was 1.49 (95 percent confidence interval, 1.01 to 2.19) for all-cause mortality, 1.46 (95 percent confidence interval, 0.67 to 3.15) for cardiovascular disease mortality, and 0.98 (95 percent confidence interval, 0.40 to 2.39) for cancer mortality. These findings were seen after adjustment for confounding variables, including age, sex, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, dietary and lifestyle factors, body mass index, and urinary creatinine levels.
Multivitamin, mineral supplement linked to less-severe, shorter-lasting illness symptoms Older adults who took a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement with zinc and high amounts of vitamin C in a 12-week study experienced sickness for shorter periods and with less severe symptoms than counterparts in a control group receiving a placebo. The findings by Oregon State University researchers were published in the journal Nutrients. The research by scientists at OSU’s Linus Pauling Institute involved 42 healthy people ages 55 to 75 and was designed to measure the supplement’s effects on certain immune system indicators. It also looked at bloodstream levels of zinc and vitamins C and D while taking the supplement, as these micronutrients are important for proper immune function. The immune indicators, including white blood cells’ ability to kill incoming pathogens, were unaltered in the group receiving the supplement. The multivitamin group showedimproved vitamin C and zinc status in the blood. Most intriguingly, illness symptoms reported by this group were less severe and went away faster than those experienced by the placebo group. The same percentage of participants in each group reported symptoms, but days of sickness in the supplement group averaged fewer than three compared to more than six for the placebo group.
Honey outperforms antibiotics for cough, cold symptoms, study says Honey appears to be more effective in treating cough and cold symptoms than antibiotics, according to a new study. Honey is cheap and widely available, and researchers say it outperformed usual care for improving symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections. It is safe for the majority of people, except for babies under 1 year of age and those with allergies, researchers noted. “Upper respiratory tract infections are the most frequent reason for antibiotic prescription,” study authors wrote. “Since the majority of URTIs are viral, antibiotic prescription is both ineffective and inappropriate. However, a lack of effective alternatives, as well as a desire to preserve the patient-doctor relationship, both contribute to antibiotic over-prescription.” The researchers from Oxford University said that antibiotics are associated with “significant adverse effects” in children and adults. They reported results from 14 studies of URTIs, though only two studies were placebo-controlled trials. In one study, patients ingesting honey reduced their duration of common cold symptoms by one to two days, compared to those receiving usual care. They also found that honey was particularly effective in improving cough frequency and severity. “In the comparison with usual care, the reductions in cough frequency and cough severity remained statistically significant,” they wrote.
Pharma reputation reset with COVID-19 means regaining science and innovation halo: expert Pharma companies have a unique opportunity to reset individual and industry reputations during the COVID-19 crisis. Positive consumer sentiment is way up, and people are rediscovering the value of the industry. But how do they capitalize on that and sustain it going forward? One branding executive says the time has come for pharma to reclaim its science, innovation and do-good reputation. Christina Falzano who last year joined Havas’ Conran Design Group as managing director, spent years working on big tech brands including Google, Wikipedia, Uber and Spotify in her career including as COO at Wolff Olins. Her job change has her thinking about the way tech brands are now perceived as the world’s do-gooders, a mantle once held by pharma. “Not to be opportunistic, but pharma brands need to think about why they seem less human than tech, and why they get less credit than tech for doing good in the world,” she said. “There’s a lot of talk today about purpose-driven brands, and that’s at the heart of pharma companies.” The reward for creating purpose-driven brands is they are more meaningful. Americans are more loyal to and feel more emotionally connected to purpose-driven brands, according to a Cone/Porter Novelli study. Further, more than two-thirds (67%) said they’d be willing to forgive a purpose-driven company if it makes a misstep.
Dr. Fauci: What About the Immune System? COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc across our country. Previously quiet areas are aflame now with infections. Hospitals are running out of beds just as it happened in March/April in New York City and my home town, Detroit, MI. As of August 7, 2020 the CDC states that there have been 4,962,216 confirmed cases of SARS-CoV-2. Furthermore, 2,446,799 have recovered. How did these people recover? I was on the front lines treating COVID-19 patients outside in their cars during March and April in Michigan. We (my partners and nurses) were busy running outside in the snow, sleet, hail, and rain putting IVs in patients as they placed their arms out the car window. We successfully treated 107 patients using nutritional and oxidative therapies. My published paper, which was peer-reviewed, describes our treatment in detail: https://www.publichealthpolicyjournal.com/clinical-and-translational-research. Dr. Fauci, who has been named America’s doctor, has been delivering information and guidance on this pandemic from the beginning. He has promoted and spearheaded the ‘warp speed’ project to develop a vaccine to treat SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Dr Fauci has kept us informed about therapies being used to treat COVID-19 including steroids, Remdesivir, dexamethasone, and hydroxychloroquine. He has convinced us, repeatedly, that a vaccine is the only way out of this mess and that we all must wait for a vaccine to be quickly brought to market.
