Since Feb 12, 2018
Whether you take the vaccine or not, you can still catch Covid:
A/ before the first shot takes effect
B/ in between the first and second shots
C/ before the 2nd shot completely takes effect
D/ Or if one of the mutations is not stopped by the vaccine...
I am not a doctor, just someone who had a harrowing time with Covid last year, but with a last minute switch to a smarter physician and different medications, I just managed to beat it. Perhaps my experience and these notes can help you prepare AHEAD OF TIME so that you are ready with a treatment plan if you do catch it. .
Following are 2 links to explanations, resources and HUNDREDS of studies for EFFECTIVE, PRE-HOSPITAL prescription drug treatments for Covid, including but not limited to Hydroxychloroquine Protocol (Hydroxychloroquine plus azithromycin [or doxycycline] and zinc) as well as for Ivermectin, Monoclonal antibodies and other medications tested effective against Covid:
Pick your preferred treatment plan, and review it with your personal physician. If he or she won’t prescribe what you want/insists you risk you life “riding it out,” here is a link to find Board Certified physicians in the U.S. and worldwide who will prescribe the appropriate medications to hopefully keep you out of the hospital and off a ventilator if you catch Covid and start the medications early enough:
Again, if your local physician won't treat you appropriately, FIND A PHYSICIAN AHEAD OF TIME, BEFORE YOU GET SICK, and find a local or online pharmacy who will fill the prescriptions from an out of town doctor if your local doctor won’t write it. Two good online pharmacies are:
Here is a link to a page with a prophylaxis protocol from the first doctor in the U.S. to recognize how Hydroxychloroquine enables Zinc to kill the virus:
Here is his recommended treatment protocol: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TaRDwXMhQHSMsgrs9TFBclHjPHerXMuB87DUXmcAvwg/edit
On his webpage https://www.vladimirzelenkomd.com you can find the prophylaxis and treatment protools translated into many languages, as well as contact info for telemedicine appointments.
Again, I am not a doctor, but highly recommend you do NOT try and "ride it out."
The following is from extensive online research, AND from my own experience catching the virus, going downhill for 5 days, finally being prescribed the Hydroxychloroquine protocol, and then recovering.
Hydroxychloroquine works for the virus when prescribed within 5 days of confirmed symptoms and/or a confirmed nasal swab test, AND when part of a ”cocktail”, prescribed together with either azithromycin or doxycycline, AND with Zinc.
Here is the latest from the American Journal of Medicine:
Pathophysiological Basis and Rationale for Early Outpatient Treatment of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Infection
Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is an antimalarial/anti-inflammatory drug that impairs endosomal transfer of virions within human cells. HCQ is also a zinc ionophore that conveys zinc intracellularly to block the SARS-CoV-2 RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, which is the core enzyme of the virus replication.21 The currently completed retrospective studies and randomized trials have generally shown these findings:
1) when started late in the hospital course and for short durations of time, antimalarials appear to be ineffective, 2) when started earlier in the hospital course, for progressively longer durations and in outpatients, antimalarials may reduce the progression of disease, prevent hospitalization, and are associated with reduced mortality.
Nearly EVERY study showing no positive effects, or that showed adverse affects from prescribing hydroxychloroquine was based on patients who were in one or more of the following groups:
(1) ONLY prescribed hydroxychloroquine, and DID NOT add the antibiotic and DID NOT ADD the zinc;
(2)Not starting the "cocktail" of all three drugs until after 5 days had elapsed since confirmation of the infection, and/or patient was already very lung-compromised and/or hospitalized;
(3) patient was already immuno-compromised, and/or had pre-existing and serious pulmonary, cardio, or diabetes related illnesses;
(4) patient was already intubated.
(Again, I am not doctor; above is from my online research).
Not saying it wont help those patients (2) - (4), but hard research of other doctors' reports shows it is less effective in those cases.
Every first or second-hand anecdotal report I could find from hundreds (if not thousands) of physicians who were prescribing the hydroxychloroquine cocktail did so within 5 days of infection, and on ambulatory patients with no serious co-morbidities, they showed > 90% recovery rate, with virtually no need for hospitalization, and very few deaths.
Hydroxychloroquines possible adverse effect on heart sinus rhythm has been known for decades, since its long been prescribed for malaria, Lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. If you have a pre-existing coronary condition, speak with your cardiologist. If you are taking hydroxychloroquine (or azithromycin which can have the same effect), and your heart starts thumping, call your doctor and/or 911.
AFAIK those cardio interactions are rare. Much rarer than the 80% mortality rate for virus patients who are intubated (Search Northwell intubated).
Once more: I am not a doctor. But I had the virus, was getting worse after a few days, and then was prescribed the hydroxychloroquine cocktail as described above, and have recovered from the virus.
IMHO best practices pre infection:
Research your local medical community and online now for a doctor who will prescribe the Hydroxychloroquine mix.
Check your current RX and OTC medications and your current health conditions for any possible interactions with Hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, doxycycline, and zinc.
Have two thermometers and at least one consumer level or better pulse oximeter as well as the batteries for them all already on hand, so you don't need to go out/wait for a delivery if you are sick.
(While there are 8-9 well known symptoms for the virus (cough, loss of sense of taste or smell, sore throat, etc... Look them up), the big markers are slight fever, lowered oxygen saturation, loss of smell or taste).
Test yourself for temperature and SP02 1-2x/day now, establish your baselines and keep a log.
If you are confirmed positive and/or or show fever and/or your SPO2 dips towards or below 92, get in touch with that doctor ASAP who will prescribe the Hydroxychloroquine cocktail.
This would also be a great time to pray.
May G-d protect us all.
