A Medical View of the Coronavirus – Notes/Critique/Comments


Notes/Critique/Comments on the Podcast

3:14 Selenium levels

Selenium – decreases virus susceptibility. How much does one take?

Brazil Nuts – Strongest source 6-9 nuts / “Month”; during viral episodes – 6 per week. How many people are going to start pounding down Brazil Nuts? How will they feel from it?

I know how you all operate. You are not the first and will not be the last to over-indulge in a “good” thing.

Selenium Toxicity – nausea, abdominal pain. Sound a lot like virus/flu symptoms. Maybe those who are taking Selenium for the thyroid or hair loss are creating their ubiquitous symptoms.

11:17 facemask

Most helpful if your surrounded by people living in areas with cases reported. 

13.45 Hand sanitizer

Carry with you – Wipe things down.

14:26 Robust immune system

Recommends stimulating the immune system with Zinc, selenium, boost lymphocyte activity.  With all those recommendations from Professional and Social Media Influencers, Medical, Alternative and Functional providers all recommending boosting, stimulating and/or strengthening the immune system. Why are all these people following their recommendations having more and more immune challenges? (See 19:50 Increasing Immune Cells)

Suppression – poor diet, sugar

Colostrum – immune stimulator, works in gut (See 19:50 Increasing Immune Cells)

19:50 Increasing Immune Cells

Very few Healthcare providers ever consider or talk about Memory Cells and Naïve cells or the life cycle of immune cells. No mention was made in this podcast or by any professional or social media influencer. It is always just the collective “Immune System”.

CD 38 cells marker for the age of the immune system.

CD4 Old Programmed immune cell / CD8 New Naïve Un-programmed immune cell

CD4, CD8, CD38 tests only show the “NUMBER” of immune cells. These tests do not show if the immune cells are fatigued, dormant, working normal, aggravated, or over-stimulated.

The more helper cells the younger, more naive the immune cells. The older the immune system, they more the immune cells are running on previous programing and unable to respond to new threats. 

Our immune system has an incredible ability; it can remember infections it has already encountered, and when the body has another encounter with the invader, the response from the immune system is rapid and efficient. While some of the details of this process are understood, many questions remain and memory cells are rarely mentioned by healthcare providers. When in fact, some of the same immune cells that battle the original infection hang around, remaining alive for years. Those cells develop unique characteristics that enable them to spring into action if the invader returns.

It is critical to almost all functions of the immune response is the activation and programming of T cells from their naïve/resting state. A T cell that is capable of providing immune protection, first requires “activation” by the programing of the naïve T cell on what to attack.

Naïve immune cells must be programmed to new threats. That’s why they are called naïve. They have a lack of experience from previous exposure. They are rookie responders that must be told what their job is. As soon as they are programmed, their biologic clock starts ticking. Most Naïve immune cells are programmed to die so they do not continue the attack after the threat is gone.

Infections and vaccines stimulate the immune system, causing cells that have never been used, naïve cells, to start reproducing, generating a pool of cells that can fight invaders. Some will become Memory Cells. The memory cell pool shrinks over time, and long-term memory cells are created. They are meant to provide protection over a much longer period.

These cells are like veteran soldiers, camped in the blood and tissues where they have previously fought the battles, waiting for a virus or bacteria to show up. They are resting quietly, but they are deeply experienced, ready to spring into action and primed to respond wildly and attack aggressively if invaders return.

Constantly revving up the immune system fatigues the immune response, making it slow to respond when it is needed. 

Constant immune stimulation shrinks the memory cell pool, leaving the body vulnerable to invaders. Constant immune stimulation programs new naive immune cells to old threat information, reducing the number of naive immune cells available for programming to new invader threats.

Example: Person has old knee injury which damaged collagen. It is the immune systems duty to clean up the frayed collagen. Naive immune cells are programmed to remove frayed collagen bits and the knee injury is healed. Some of the programed naive cells become memory cells which respond quickly and aggressively to collagen bits. The same person reads on the internet how collagen is beneficial in the body and is constantly consuming collagen supplement. Plus, is taking immune stimulants. Immune stimulants make memory cells more hostile to collagen in the body where ever it is found throughout the entire body. The person wonders why they have Rheumatoid Arthritis.

21:50 After age 65 living on residual immune system. 

At that age, most have a history of repeatedly taking immune suppressing drugs. Depletion of memory cells and/or memory cells have been programmed not to respond.

23:46 Jumps around all the barriers.

There is a for lack of better words and energy that spreads amongst the population where those not exposed start developing an immune response. This allow survival of the species. 

Hundredth Monkey Effect

The hundredth monkey effect is a phenomenon in which a new behavior or idea is said to spread rapidly by unexplained means from one group to all related groups once a critical number of members of one group exhibit the new behavior or acknowledge the new idea.

24:30 Viruses play out as season changes. 

Increased melatonin during winter stimulates Th17, which creates flu/viral symptoms. After Winter Solstice, natural melatonin production decreases.

Coronavirus heat susceptible. 

Americans spend 98% of their time indoors. Can you say – Vitamin D deficiency?

29:11 SARS / H1N1

Media designed around “If it bleeds, it leads”. Media protects their political darlings. 

“Never let a good crisis go to waste.” – Rahm Emanuel

Amygdala cannot tell virtual reality from reality. Whatever you perceive you will achieve.

Important not to continually stimulate the Amygdala with fearful, self-fulfilling prophecy. 

Everyone need to take a breath and relax in this weird time we live in. In the past few weeks, there has been a lot of information – most of it hype – about the Coronavirus. 

COVID 19 is a rather unique virus. 

Most usually concentrate on the Immune system AFTER the infection, after ACTIVATION has already occurred. Rather than preventing the infection by strengthening the membranes through which the virus enters the body. 

Most viral entry occurs via broken membrane walls.

COVID has a unique method (man made) to attach to 2 different cell proteins to gain entry.

  1. The first is through a Vit D sensitive receptor. 

Most Americans spend 98% of their time indoors leading to a Vitamin D deficiency.

This receptor site the virus tries to enter into is closed with High D3 levels.

  • Increase your Vitamin D intake. Get out side. 
Many people are asking me what they can use for prevention of Coronavirus. These can be ordered using the Doctor’s Supplement Store button.
I recommend the Liposomal Vitamin C by Designs For Health and Vitamin D for preventative measures. For Vitamin D and calming the immune system, I recommend the Ultra D 5000, Turmero Active, Resvero Active from Apex Energetics. Contact the office to order this product.
 1Designs for Health, Liposomal Vitamin C, 4 fl oz (120 ml)
 This is for prevention of the Coronavirus. 
Take 5 ml (approx. 1 teaspoon) and hold in mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing, or as directed by your health care practitioner. Refrigerate upon receipt. Use within 30 days of opening.
 
 1Wise Woman Herbals, Lomatium Dis., 2 fl oz (60 ml)
 This is not used as a preventative for the Coronavirus or other viral diseases. This is a take it – when you got it. 
Take 10-30 drops, 1-4 times a day.

2. The other is a Furin cleavage site which is commonly present on ALL cells. This furin-like cleavage site may provide a gain-of-function to the 2019-nCoV for efficient spreading in the human population.

This is an easy initial entry point.. aka “highly infectious”, but then met with an onslaught of an immune response, AKA “Cytokine Storm” stimulated by the TH17 immune system.

This is what is killing people..

Then, the body needs to RECOGNIZE the Pathogens and CONJUGATE them in order to PRESENT them to Macrophages.

  • This is where Vitamin C, Lomatium and again D3 play roles.

But again, COVID has a unique ability to gain entry. It IS highly infectious. But easily handled by a Healthy Immune system response..

Cases in the USA are matching those of Italy. A google search as of Mar. 15, 2020 shows only late February news. This indicates the number of cases are declining. Not good for the Fear Mongering News.

Because of this, the CASE numbers, ARE going to spike in the next 2 weeks. Especially with increased testing. But then the “Lethality” numbers will drop. However, more mild cases will be recognized.

Those with LOW D3 are most susceptible, 

Then those with poor Immune Responses, LOW antioxidant status will be most susceptible. 

Yes we can support OUR clients and patients and ourselves. By calming and quieting the immune response. (See 19:50 Increasing Immune Cells)

But most out there are clueless..

They continue to support a stimulation of the immune response. A person with an impaired immunoglobulin response will have an impaired stimulated immune response. It will be an inappropriate immune response. Yes, some will get lucky and it will do the job. For others it could make things worse as an over-fatigued immune system being stimulated can collapse and fail. Leaving the virus unchecked to enter the body. 

A calm, quiet and rested immune system responds appropriately. Vitamin C and Vitamin D will help with prevention by building walls to keep the virus out. 

Looking at Worldwide Trends, especially Europe, there WILL be a spike in the USA over the next 2 weeks (Mar. 14, 2020), and sadly, the News Media will exploit it and the USA will go crazy. (Watch what happens in Europe)

There is nothing WE can do about that.

Individual acts of defiance may make us feel better, but the world is gonna do what it’s gonna do. We can’t stop that. And we don’t want to put anyone in a situation that makes their lives more stressful than necessary. 

That is not helpful either.

This will be over in 90 days.

So just ride it out.
