CoViD-19 Management with Dr Paul Marik

TMR z"COVID-19 Management With Dr. Paul Marik - Author Of MATH+ Protocol", DrBeen Medical Lectures YouTube channel (16 September 2020)

This discussion is excellent and important in my view. Dr. Paul Marik of East Virginia Medical School (EVMS), author of the MATH+ Protocol, describes the viral-replication and inflammatory stages of CoViD-19 and stresses the importance of the right treatments at the right time. That sounds obvious, but he contends that that's not always going on in hospitals, and that some of that may stem from the profit motives of Big Pharma. (I found the discussion on viral debris particularly fascinating. Please do watch this.)

Novichok, Navalny, Nordstream, Nonsense (Craig Murray)

TMR t"Novichok, Navalny, Nordstream, Nonsense", (03 September 2020)

Well, I just had to flag this one up. (I can't reproduce the article this time, because Craig Murray hasn't stated that people can republish this one - I don't know why). Anyway, having reacted to the Navalny-Putin-Poisoning story with, "Oh, not again! You've gotta be kidding me!", as soon as I heard it on the kitchen radio—tuned to the ever-truthful Auntie Beeb (BBC)—I was relieved to read Craig Murray's delightful put-down of the narrative.

Supercomputer CoViD Breakthrough? (Dr Chris Martenson)

TMR q"Supercomputer Breakthrough For Treating Covid-19?", Dr. Chris Martenson YouTube Channel (04 September)

Well that's the headline, but Chris Martenson's subtitle for the video is, "Or why Vit-D and Ivermectin Work!", and that's what particularly interests me. If this "bradykinin storm" (which the new study postulates may be key to understanding inflammatory aspects of CoViD-19) is as important (or possibly even more important?) than the much-discussed "cytokine storm", this might help to explain—as Chris Martenson highlights—why Vitamin D and Ivermectin seem so successful in treating the disease.

New Vitamin D Study (Dr Been)

TMR n"New Study - Vitamin D High Dose and COVID-19", DrBeen Medical Lectures YouTube channel (08 September 2020)

I'm sharing this one for two reasons: One, because I think it's an important study that's well-explained here; and Two, because Dr. Syed ("Dr. Been"), who was a guest on TMR a few weeks back, has urged his viewers to share it widely. Please do watch this and share it.

Bromhexine (Dr Been)

TMR o"Bromhexine", DrBeen Medical Lectures YouTube channel (28 July 2020)

I've taken some interest in this one. Bromhexine is a "mucolytic drug used in treating respiratory disorders associated with viscid [sticky] or excessive mucus" that's available "over-the-counter" in many countries (although not, apparently, in the US). It seems that the drug has been gaining some attention because it may help to block an enzyme (TRMPSS2) that's key to priming the SARS-CoV-2 "S protein" by which the virus can gain entry into our cells. Although there is little clinical evidence yet of its effectiveness, there is a theoretical basis for the suggestion. Please see the links on the video page for more information.

Scientism, COVID & CS Lewis (John West)

TMR v"Science and Scientism in the Age of COVID-19: Wisdom from C.S. Lewis", Discovery Science YouTube channel (19 August 2020)

As an antidote to this: "A Christian Statement on Science for Pandemic Times", published by BioLogos—which, though it contains much that is true, also makes some statements that made me feel extremely uncomfortable, and which I most certainly will NOT sign—I draw attention to this excellent presentation by John G. West of The Discovery Institute, in which he draws upon some prophetic warnings by C. S. Lewis about the rise of what Lewis called "Scientocracy", but which we are now more likely to term "Technocracy", and relates them to the current pandemic.

Great News! Triple Protocol Released to Australian GPs! (CDD)

TMR f"Ivermectin Triple Therapy Protocol for COVID-19 Released to Australian GPs for Infected Elderly and Frontline Workers", (19 August 2020)

Excellent news! Professor Thomas Borody of Australia's Centre for Digestive Diseases today announces that his "Australian Triple Therapy", which involves the cheap and widely-available drug Ivermectin, has been released for use in treating COVID-19. The press release states that Australian GPs (general practitioner doctors) can now "legally prescribe it to their COVID-19 positive patients [and] prescribe it as a preventative medication." This is huge news! Let us hope that this will proceed unhindered (see below), and that such action will lead to a growing openness to pre-existing treatments.

Why Ban 2 Potential COVID Cures? (Andrew Bolt)

TMR x"There is no good reason to ban two potential ‘COVID cures’ ", (17 August 2020)

I have to say, Sky News Australia has been doing some good coverage of these kinds of issues recently. Here we see Sky News host Andrew Bolt question why two "cheap, generic drugs" are being pushed aside in favour of a promised vaccine some way down the line. Is it, he speculates, because there's "no big money in generic, no-label drugs for the big pharma companies"? I'm very glad these issues are being raised on MSM, but I wonder if this goes far enough.

L-Lysine Saving Lives in Dominican Republic (Bo Karlicki)

TMR v"L-Lysine - Saving Lives in Dominican Republic", Dr. Jennifer Hibberd YouTube Channel (15 August 2020)

This is another "must see" video in my humble and medically-untrained opinion. Dr. Jennifer Hibberd—who, I confess, I know nothing about, but I think she might be a dentist—speaks to a man called Bo Karlicki (who admits to not being a medical professional) who lives in the Dominican Republic and who claims that he has had personal success in managing Covid-19 with a food supplement called L-Lysine. Now, if all that sounds like satire (which wouldn't be unknown on TMR), let me assure you it isn't.

Australian Triple Therapy (Prof Thomas Borody)

TMR p"Professor Thomas Borody’s Ivermectin Triple Therapy", Triple M Night Shift (12 August 2020)

Though short, this is an eye-opening interview. Professor Thomas Borody, MB, BS, BSc(Med), MD, PhD, DSc, FRACP, FACP, FACG, AGAF, Director of the Centre for Digestive Diseases, Sydney, Australia—(and I'm only listing that lot to show that he isn't someone who can easily be dismissed as a "quack")—briefly discusses his "Australian Triple Therapy" involving the drug Ivermectin, which he maintains can "treat and get rid of" Covid-19. But he also hints at forces that might not wish it to succeed.

Kennedy vs Dershowitz Vaccine Debate

TMR f"Heated Vaccine Debate—Kennedy Jr. vs Dershowitz", Valuetainment YouTube channel (23 July 2020)

I expect that many of you will have seen this debate already, but if you haven't I recommend it highly. Lawyer and activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr (of Children's Health Defense) and well-known US constitutional lawyer Alan Dershowitz battle it out over the question of mandatory vaccinations in the Covid-19 world. The debate is respectful, good-natured, frequently passionate, but above all full of startling information.

Most Logically It Came From a Lab (Birger Sørensen)

TMR n"The most logical explanation is that it comes from a laboratory", minerva (02 July 2020)

This is a translation of a Norwegian article that includes excerpts from an interview with Norwegian virologist Birger Sørensen, in which he expresses his professional opinion that it is very unlikely that SARS-CoV-2 emerged naturally. It is worth reading for some of the reasons for his judgements (explained in a non-technical way), and for an explanation of some the sociological factors that suppress uncomfortable opinions in the scientific press.

How a False HCQ Narrative Was Created (Meryl Nass MD)

TMR uMeryl Nass, MD, "How a false hydroxychloroquine narrative was created, and more", (27 June 2020)

In my view, this is a very important posting by the epidemics and anthrax expert Dr. Meryl Nass. "In no special order" she presents "a list of what happened" in order to illustrate how the message about HCQ was shifted from safe and commonplace to "safe for its other uses, but dangerous when used for Covid-19". She asks: "Were these acts carefully orchestrated? You decide."

Former French Health Minister Blows Whistle on Lancet Study

TMR z"HCQ Lancet Study - Former France Health Minister Blows Whistle", Virglie Faber YouTube channel (31 May 2020)

This is an important testimony. What he says doesn't exactly come as a surprise, because I'm sure many of us suspect that Big Pharma is regularly distoring research, but it's important to have this kind of evidence if our suspicions are to be more solidly grounded.

On 23rd May, Philippe Douste-Blazy, MD—a former French Minister for Health and one-time Under-Secretary-General of the UN—was interviewed on the French BFM TV (allegedly France's "most-watched news channel").

HCQ Searching for Evidence (Myron Cohen, MD)

TMR rMyron S. Cohen, MD, "Hydroxychloroquine for the Prevention of Covid-19 — Searching for Evidence", The New England Journal of Medicine (03 June 2020)

No doubt there will be some people who think I'm being political about this—that I'm "pro-Trump", or "right wing", or "conservative", and therefore have some (hidden?) desire to champion the cause of hydroxychloroquine advocacy—but the simple fact is, I keep banging on about HCQ simply because I suspect it is not being fairly assessed by the scientific establishment, and I "smell a rat". And that bothers me.

Now Retracted! (The Lancet)

TMR o"Retraction: "Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis" ", The Lancet (04 June 2020)

So now The Lancet is retracting the article! — Good — It seems to me that it should never have been accepted for publication in the first place, given the rapidity with which its shortcomings came to light. Again, good on all those concerned professionals who complained about it, and good on The Guardian for reporting on it.

Good News (It Seems) on WHO HCQ Trial

TMR i Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus: (03 June 2020)

Aha, so now (according to its Director-General Tedros) the WHO is going to resume its hydroxychloroquine study. There's no mention in Tedros' announcement of the dodgy study in The Lancet, but just that the "Solidarity Trial Data Safety & Monitoring Committee" has now had the chance to look at the data and has concluded that it can go ahead after all. Good. Well, let's hope that the study does go ahead and that it's fair and balanced. (I'm not holding my breath on that, as the expression goes, but at least this is a positive development.) Well done to all those professionals who kicked up a fuss about the piece in The Lancet; it looks like it had an effect.

Professor Joe Jarvis—a UK NIHR Global Health Research Professor currently based in Botswana—shares his twitter thread in which he complains of data implausibility in the Lancet study based on his research experience in Africa.

"Based on my group’s research experience in southern Africa, even in settings with the most developed electronic medical records systems in sub-Saharan Africa such as South Africa or Botswana, this kind of data cannot be obtained."—Jarvis

A Study Out of Thin Air (James M Todaro, MD)

TMR t James M Todaro, MD, "A Study Out of Thin Air", (29 May 2020)

James M. Todaro (MD Columbia) takes a preliminary look at the mysterious company Surgisphere, the controversial data firm behind the infamous Lancet study that recently poured cold water on HCQ and CQ as treatments for Covid-19. (It was that study in The Lancet that prompted—or gave the excuse?—for the WHO to put on hold its Solidarity Trial of HCQ as a treatment for Covid-19.)

"Misinformation is bad. Misinformation in medicine is worse. Misinformation from a prestigious medical journal is the worst."—Todaro
