The Vaccine Decision

I am open to a safe and effective vaccine.  What do we know about the two COVID vaccines available?

  1. Both the Moderna and Pfizer COVID vaccines are only tested and approved to reduce symptoms of cough and fever from COVID.  They are not tested or approved to reduce infection or transmission.  How is this any better than a bottle of Theraflu?  The masking and distancing requirements after the vaccine are not eliminated.   Does this sound like it is effective?
  2. These COVID vaccines use synthetic reverse RNA for the first time ever in humans.  This is an experimental gene-altering drug.  Do I want to be a “guinea pig” test subject for this potentially high-risk experiment?  We won’t know the full effects for years.
  3. The Moderna and Pfizer COVID vaccines have received Emergency Use Authorizations (EAU) but not yet full vaccine licenses. Under federal law   21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3 “Emergency Use Authorization” means that any product with this designation must be voluntary. These COVID vaccines cannot be mandatory because they are experimental. 

4.The side effects are significant:  653 Deaths + 12,044 Other Injuries  reported Following COVID Vaccine as of February 4th as reported by the CDC. Research shows only 10% of vaccine injuries are reported so the numbers are likely far higher.

5.The side effects can be serious: Aside from sudden death within hours or days,10,11,12,13,14 examples of side effects among survivors of the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines include:

  • Persistent malaise15,16 and extreme exhaustion17
  • Severe allergic, including anaphylactic reactions18,19,20   
  • Multisystem inflammatory syndrome21
  • Chronic seizures and convulsions22,23
  • Paralysis,24 including Bell’s Palsy25

Many say they “feel weird” and that they “don’t feel like myself.” Dizziness, racing heart and extreme high blood pressure seem to be a common complaint, as is severe, chronic seemingly “unbreakable” headache that does not respond to medication. Many describe the pain they feel in their body as “being run over by a bus” or “being beaten with a bat.”

Some report swollen and painful lymph nodes, severe muscle pain and gastrointestinal issues. Symptoms mimicking stroke are being reported, even though CT scans show nothing of concern. One such report is from a 19-year-old girl. Several report lethal heart attacks claiming the lives of someone they love.

Psychological effects are also starting to creep in. One woman who is on chemotherapy reports “mood changes with intermittent periods of elation and mild euphoria.” Bouts of anxiety, depression, brain fog, confusion and dissociation are also being reported, as is an inability to sleep.

One person reports having lost “the voice in my head,” which I suspect is the ability to hear yourself think. Another reports losing the ability to formulate words about half an hour after getting the first dose of vaccine, and a third reports “struggling for lost words.” Loss of taste and/or smell are also being reported, as well as taste alterations. Several say they have developed a metallic taste since their vaccination.

One pregnant woman reported spontaneous rupture of the amniotic sac resulting in premature delivery. Another woman’s baby was found to have no heartbeat two days after her vaccination and was delivered stillborn. Several describe effects suggesting vascular problems, such as skin blotchiness and fingers turning blue.

While people are hoping and praying their side effects will be temporary, a significant portion say they’re still struggling with the effects one or two weeks after their shot. Time will tell whether they turn out to be permanent, but considering the fact that the mRNA vaccines reprogram your DNA, there’s certainly the possibility that they might be long-lasting.

My personal decision is to avoid this vaccine – for me it doesn’t fit the criteria of safe and effective.  For those who choose this experimental new gene therapy, my prayers are with them for safety and full recovery from side-effects. I am most concerned about the prospects for long-term autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases from this experimental gene therapy.  Make your decision carefully based on all the facts and do not allow yourself to be coerced or forced into something that doesn’t seem right for you.  Whatever you choose, we will support you in your decision.

Vitamin C Research Shows Beneficial Effects with COVID

PubMed, the NIH federal library of medical research, shows over 67,000 results for published research papers on Vitamin C.  Over 80 years of laboratory and clinical studies on high-dose ascorbate (Vitamin C) therapy show Vitamin C at moderate doses are preventative for infection and at very large doses are therapeutic.  The safety and effectiveness of Vitamin C make it a prime candidate for treatment of flu, cold, Covid, and other respiratory illnesses.

“The medical literature has ignored over 80 years of laboratory and clinical studies on high-dose ascorbate therapy,” Saul notes, adding that while it’s widely accepted that vitamin C is beneficial in fighting illness, controversy exists over to what extent. “Moderate quantities provide effective prevention,” he says, while “large quantities are therapeutic.”

  • Oral vitamin C at doses of 2 to 8 grams a day have been shown to reduce the incidence and duration of respiratory infections
  • Intravenous vitamin C at 6 to 24 grams a day has been shown to reduce mortality, ICU admission rates, hospital stays and time on mechanical ventilation in patients with severe respiratory infections
  • An international vitamin C campaign has been launched in response to the landmark review

As reported in the paper “Optimal Nutritional Status for a Well-Functioning Immune System Is an Important Factor to Protect Against Viral Infections,” published April 23, 2020:1

“The role nutrition plays in supporting the immune system is well-established. A wealth of mechanistic and clinical data show that vitamins, including vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and folate; trace elements, including zinc, iron, selenium, magnesium, and copper; and the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid play important and complementary roles in supporting the immune system.

Inadequate intake and status of these nutrients are widespread, leading to a decrease in resistance to infections and as a consequence an increase in disease burden.”  1 Nutrients April 23, 2020; 12(4): 1181

Clinical Evidence

The Nutrients review17 also includes clinical evidence for the role of vitamin C in COVID-19, noting that early oral supplementation might help prevent a mild case from developing into something more serious. In patients with critical symptoms, intravenous administration of vitamin C has been shown to speed up recovery, reducing both ICU stays and mortality.

Interestingly, vitamin C deficiency and COVID-19 share many of the same risk factors, including male gender, darker skin, older age and comorbidities such as diabetes, high blood pressure and COPD. All of these subgroups are at increased risk for severe COVID-19 and, according to the authors, all “have also been shown to have lower serum vitamin C levels.”

Commenting on the clinical evidence supporting the use of vitamin C in the treatment of COVID-19, the authors write:18

“There are currently 45 trials registered on Clinicaltrials.gov investigating vitamin C with or without other treatments for COVID-19. In the first RCT to test the value of vitamin C in critically ill COVID-19 patients, 54 ventilated patients in Wuhan, China, were treated with a placebo (sterile water) or intravenous vitamin C at a dose of 24 g/day for 7 days …

The more severely ill patients with SOFA [sequential organ failure assessment] scores ≥ 3 in the vitamin C group exhibited a reduction in 28-day mortality: 18% versus 50% in univariate survival analysis (Figure 2). No study-related adverse events were reported.”

How Much Vitamin C Do You Need?

While high-dose vitamin C regimens typically call for intravenous administration, if treating a viral infection at home (be it COVID-19 or something else), you could use oral liposomal vitamin C, as this allows you to take far higher doses without causing loose stools.

You can take up to 100 grams of liposomal vitamin C without problems and get really high blood levels, equivalent to or higher than intravenous vitamin C. I view that as an acute treatment, however. I discourage people from taking mega doses of vitamin C on a regular basis if they’re not actually sick, because it is essentially a drug — or at least it works like one.

Saul, who has worked with and recommended vitamin C for most of his professional life suggests taking “enough vitamin C to be symptom-free,” whatever dosage that might be.

Everyone is different so ask your experienced care provider to help you find the dosage and form of Vitamin C that best fits your unique needs.

What Are Reported COVID Vaccine Adverse Effects?

 adapted from Dr. Joseph Mercola:

Around the world, reports are pouring in of people dying shortly after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. In many cases, they die suddenly within hours of getting the shot. In others, death occurs within the span of a couple of weeks.

One notable case is baseball legend Hank Aaron, 86, who died January 22, 2021, 17 days after publicly getting vaccinated for COVID-19.1,2 He said at the time that he hoped other Blacks would follow his lead and get their vaccines too.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, commented that the deaths have to be “put into context with the population they occurred in.”5

In other words, they were old and old people die. It’s hypocrisy at its finest. When seniors die before vaccination, it’s due to COVID-19 and something must be done to prevent it, but when they die after vaccination, they die of natural causes and no preventive action is necessary.

Interestingly, several areas have reported that deaths are rapidly increasing AFTER vaccination programs are implemented. The news stories don’t actually say it straight out, but if you look at dates given, it raises questions. One such example is what’s happening in Gibraltar at the southern tip of Spain, which has a population of 34,000.

The area rolled out its vaccination program on January 9, 2021, using the Pfizer mRNA vaccine. By January 17, 2021, 5,847 doses had been administered (about 17% of the population), according to a report by MedicalXpress.6

The curious thing about it is that the area’s first recorded death from COVID-19 didn’t occur until mid-November 2020. By January 6, three days before the vaccination program began, the total COVID-19-related death toll reportedly stood at 10.

Then, by January 17, the total death toll had suddenly skyrocketed to 45. In other words, 35 people died in the first eight days of the vaccination program. Most were in their 80s and 90s.

Chief Minister Fabian Picardo said, “This is now the worst loss of life of Gibraltarians in over 100 years. Even in war, we have never lost so many in such a short time.”7 None of the deaths are being blamed on the vaccine, however. Instead, they’re loosely blaming them on the new variant of SARS-CoV-2.

Vaccine Rollout Coincides With Outbreak

Other areas are also reporting “outbreaks” of COVID-19, resulting in increased death tolls, after the rollout of vaccinations. Case in point: In Auburn, New York, a COVID-19 outbreak began December 21, 2020, in a Cayuga County nursing home.8,9 Before this outbreak, no one in the nursing home had died from COVID-19.

The next day, December 22, they started vaccinating residents and staff. The first death was reported December 29, 2020. Between December 22, 2020, and January 9, 2021, 193 residents (80%) received the vaccine, as did 113 staff members.

As of January 9, 2021, 137 residents had been infected and 24 had died. Forty-seven staff members had also tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 and one was on life-support.

Considering we’re also seeing cases in which healthy young and middle-aged individuals die within days of receiving the vaccine, it’s not inconceivable that the vaccine might have something to do with these dramatic rises in deaths among the elderly in various parts of the world. In fact, I’d expect it.

You can rest assured, however, that the public health authorities and media will not report these observations. Anything that conflicts with vaccine safety and effectiveness will be intentionally and universally buried. This is precisely their modus operandi of the past three decades, so it’s really up to each individual to do their own research.

Massive Amounts of Serious Side Effects Emerging

While the global vaccine campaign is less than a month old in most places, reports of serious side effects have already started pouring in. Many are sharing their personal experiences on social media networks. Disturbingly, many are having their stories censored as misleading or false. Videos, in particular, tend to be taken down.

Aside from sudden death within hours or days,10,11,12,13,14 examples of side effects among survivors of the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines include:

  • Persistent malaise15,16 and extreme exhaustion17
  • Severe allergic, including anaphylactic reactions18,19,20   
  • Multisystem inflammatory syndrome21
  • Chronic seizures and convulsions22,23
  • Paralysis,24 including Bell’s Palsy25

To get a feel for what’s really happening, check out prezi.com, where someone has started collecting stories from various social media posts. It’s a rather shocking compilation that is well worth sharing with family and friends who are still on the fence about getting the vaccine.

Many say they “feel weird” and that they “don’t feel like myself.” Dizziness, racing heart and extreme high blood pressure seem to be a common complaint, as is severe, chronic seemingly “unbreakable” headache that does not respond to medication. Many describe the pain they feel in their body as “being run over by a bus” or “being beaten with a bat.”

Some report swollen and painful lymph nodes, severe muscle pain and gastrointestinal issues. Symptoms mimicking stroke are being reported, even though CT scans show nothing of concern. One such report is from a 19-year-old girl. Several report lethal heart attacks claiming the lives of someone they love.

We see mass cell activation syndromes. The clinical symptoms are going to be the inflammatory diseases. We hear everybody calling it ‘long haul COVID’ — the extreme, profound, crippling fatigue, the inability to produce energy from your mitochondria. It’s not long haul COVID. It’s exactly what it always was — myalgic encephalomyelitis, inflammation of the brain and the spinal cord. ~ Judy Mikovits Ph.D.

While people are hoping and praying their side effects will be temporary, a significant portion say they’re still struggling with the effects one or two weeks after their shot. Time will tell whether they turn out to be permanent, but considering the fact that the mRNA vaccines reprogram your DNA, there’s certainly the possibility that they might be long-lasting.

How Important is Vitamin D in Staying Well with Flu & Covid?

Staying well requires a strong, balanced immune system combined with reducing exposure to pathogens.  Vitamin D is critical to each step of our immune response.  There are 4 stages to viral infection. 

Stage 1 is exposure to a virus.  Our skin and mucous membranes (lining of our mouth, throat, sinuses, gut, & lungs) along with antimicrobial peptides (think natural antibiotics) form a barrier like a strong castle wall to repel viral invaders.  This protects us from getting infected in the first place – viruses just bounce off our protective wall. Vitamin D is critical for each part of this stage 1 defense.

Stage 2 is replication of a virus in our cells as the viral invader hijacks our internal cell machinery to make more copies of itself.  This requires Nf-kB (a cell nucleus signaling molecule) activation.  Vitamin D, at adequate levels, blocks excessive Nf-kB activation to both reduce excessive inflammation and block viral replication.

Stage 3 is activation of our immune “Swat Team” to attack and easily kill viral invaders. Our immune T-cells easily defeat viruses when working properly.  Vitamin D is critical to our T-cell response.

Stage 4 is managing inflammation and cell energy.  Some inflammation is useful to destroy viral invaders.  Too much can result in a deadly cytokine storm (think fire tornado) that destroys our lungs (and other body parts) and kills us. Vitamin D has a critical role in regulating inflammation and protecting against cytokine storms.

Our immune system needs ENERGY to work well. This is supplied by our mitochondria (energy factories in our cells). Serious infections, inflammation, and trauma can lead to a major shutdown of our mitochondria leading to serious fatigue that may never go away without help.  Vitamin D protects against this.

Sound like Vitamin D may be important?  How do we know if we are getting enough?  We strongly recommend a blood test called 25-OH Vitamin D3 from LabCorp.  Also get a serum calcium blood test at the same time. Target is a Vitamin D­3 level of 60 – 80 ng/ml with a serum calcium of 9.7 – 9.9.  The serum calcium helps us evaluate Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) function since Vitamin D requires a healthy VDR receptor to work properly.

Our Most Dangerous Food

How Linoleic acid (Omega 6) fats WRECK our health– worse than sugar!

Our diets have changed greatly in comparison to our ancestors.

Then: In 1850: We ate 2-3 grams per day of linoleic acid (from seed oils).   Linolenic Acid use to make up 1% – 3% of the energy in the human diet and there was virtually no cancer, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, macular degeneration

Now: We on average eat 30 – 40 grams  of linolenic acid. This makes up 15% – 20% of energy in our diet and we now have exploding rates of cancer, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, macular degeneration from increase of pervasive linoleic acid (LA) – perhaps the greatest health experiment in history!

Linoleic acid (LA) acts as a metabolic poisondamages our mitochondria

  • Primary contributor to nearly all chronic disease
  • Highly susceptible to oxidation including OXLAMS (oxidated LA metabolites)
  • Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio is important
    • Can’t fix by just increasing Omega 3 fish oil intake – must decrease linoleic acid

Linoleic Acid is our Enemy – many feel better in just days by eliminating Linoleic acid

Factory-farmed Chicken fed LA rich grains (soybeans, corn) as well as the oils below:


https://www.news-medical.net/health/Oils-Rich-in-Linoleic-Acid.aspx

Healthy Saturated Fat is our Friend!

  • Beef is great – grass fed best
  • Antibiotic free pork
  • Organic or free-range chicken is fine.   Factory farmed chicken is not.
  • Ghee (clarified butter – best for those who are dairy sensitive) or grass fed butter
  • Tallow – saturated fat from beef (get grass fed or organic)
  • Lard – saturated fat from pork (get antibiotic-free, free range)
  • Avocados best or avocado oil
  • Coconut or coconut oil
  • Olives or Olive oil – Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) only, avoid the cheap stuff that is adulterated with cheap vegetable oils high in linoleic acid
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Palm Oil
  • Macadamia Oil

Note: Can be ordered online at fatworksfoods.com 

Cardiolipin is a particular fat ONLY located in our mitochondria.

  • 20% of all our fat is as Cardiolipin
    • Made up of 4 fatty acids
    • Can include LA, or EPA, or DHA,  oleic acid, palmitic acid etc.
  • LA in Cardiolipin is especially susceptible to oxidation
  • Animals typically develop cancer when LA in diet reaches 4% to 10% of energy intake since OXLAMs trigger cancer

High LA diets cause obesity, heart disease and High saturated fat diets don’t get fat or sick

High LA increases risk of Sunburn and raises risk of acute respiratory disease and Covid-19

Top Sources of LA:   May feel better in days

  • Chips fried in vegetable oil
  • Commercial salad dressings
  • French Fries and other fried foods
  • Virtually all processed foods
