Could CBD Treat Covid-19? Maryland Researchers Want To Find Out

From the Baltimore Business Journal:

“Health experts and scientists across the globe have been searching for vaccines, treatments and cures to combat the novel coronavirus. Now, researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine are looking to cannabis plants for possible answers.

Ciaran Skerry, an assistant professor of microbiology and immunology at UMB, is leading a newly launched lab-based study to investigate whether cannabidiol (CBD), an ingredient of cannabis, has anti-viral effects on cells infected with Covid-19.”

CBD has known anti-inflammatory qualities, maybe it will prove useful in managing COVID? More research is needed! Click here for the entire article.

Using Green Tea To Help Prevent Cancer And Treat Cancer: Michael Greger MD

“Tea consumption is associated with a reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, and premature death in general, with each additional cup of green tea a day associated with a 4-percent lower mortality risk. So, perhaps “drinking several cups of tea daily can keep the doctor away,” as well as the mortician—but what about cancer?” To read the entire article please click here.

Oh boy, did Dr. Greger suggest that drinking green tea can treat cancer? Tea is loaded with healthy antioxidants and other health promoting nutrients. Dr. Greger is known for his exhaustive research on every subject he writes about. I hope the FDA goon squad won’t hunt him down and Google won’t ban him or block his work as they have done with so many other healthcare providers who dare to discuss natural treatments.

Vitamin D Appears To Play A Role In COVID-19 Mortality Rates

“After studying global data from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, researchers have discovered a strong correlation between severe vitamin D deficiency and mortality rates.

Led by Northwestern University, the research team conducted a statistical analysis of data from hospitals and clinics across China, France, Germany, Italy, Iran, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States.

The researchers noted that patients from countries with high COVID-19 mortality rates, such as Italy, Spain and the UK, had lower levels of vitamin D compared to patients in countries that were not as severely affected.” Please click here for the entire article.

Vitamin D deficiency is not only an issue up north, but it also an issue in the south. Most people don’t get out enough, and it’s worse during this pandemic. The good news is vitamin D deficiency is easily treated with oral supplementation and/or vitamin D injections. The latter takes a couple of minutes and if you add oral supplementation it should not take very long to get your numbers where they should be.

Hydroxychloroquine Has About 90 Percent Chance of Helping COVID-19 Patients

“In a letter to Gov. Doug Ducey of Arizona, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) presents a frequently updated table of studies that report results of treating COVID-19 with the anti-malaria drugs chloroquine (CQ) and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ, Plaquenil®).

To date, the total number of reported patients treated with HCQ, with or without zinc and the widely used antibiotic azithromycin, is 2,333, writes AAPS, in observational data from China, France, South Korea, Algeria, and the U.S. Of these, 2,137 or 91.6 percent improved clinically. There were 63 deaths, all but 11 in a single retrospective report from the Veterans Administration where the patients were severely ill.”

Why is there a never ending attack on hydroxychloroquine? It is true that observational data is not the double blind, placebo controlled, gold standard that everyone is clamoring about. But this doesn’t mean observational data is not of any value. The doctors who use this medication say it works. They are on the front lines of treating COVID-19 and can see the results for themselves. I think the push-back is because President Trump recommended it. It’s the only logical conclusion. Now the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, a national medical organization is standing up for what appears to be right. There is growing evidence that this treatment works.

Which Countries Use Ozone Therapy For Coronavirus Infections?

Paola Dziwetzki who is affectionately known as the ‘crazy ozone lady’ writes, “Thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic some regulations have been abandoned completely or loosened up. In the spirit of “trying things out” to find something, anything, that works for Covid-19 medical authorities in some parts of the world have unfastened the iron grip on what is and what is not allowed in medicine. Ozone therapy appears to be one of the beneficiaries of this more open approach. In Spain and Italy doctors have been allowed to treat hospitalized Coronavirus patients with ozone therapy with the first promising results. As the situation is evolving rapidly, more countries may be following suit.” To read the entire article please click here.

Ozone therapy is used extensively in our practice. It is frequently combined with vitamin therapy. To learn more about ozone therapy please click here. To learn more about vitamin therapy click here.

New York Hospitals Utilizing Vitamin C | Worldhealth.net Anti-Aging News

“Pulmonologist and critical care specialists Dr. Andrew G. Weber, who is affiliated with two Northwell Health facilities on Long Island, is reporting that his COVID-19 intensive care patients are immediately receiving 1,500 mgs of vitamin C intravenously and are re-administered the exact amounts 3-4 times per day…. The patients who received vitamin C did significantly better than those who did not get vitamin C,” said Weber. “It helps a tremendous amount, but it is not highlighted because it’s not a sexy drug.” Please click here for the full article.

Other experts such as Andrew Saul, PhD of the Orthomolecular Society have posted about the importance of increasing vitamin C and other nutrients in order to bolster the immune system during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Saul just didn’t post some willy-nilly recommendations, he backed it all up with multiple references from the scientific literature. Click here for those recommendations. For more technical information from the Orthomolecular Society including presentations and protocols in regards to COVID-19, please click here.

Despite growing evidence of the benefits of high dose vitamin C therapy for treating COVID-19 patients, the naysayers were out in full force once Dr. Saul made his recommendations. PolitiFact on February 29th, 2020, dumped all over the idea of high dose vitamin C therapy. Forbes.com as recently as March 29th, 2020 stated, “For those who don’t want to read further, I’ll start with the conclusion: vitamin C won’t help to prevent or to treat coronavirus infection.” There are many other websites which regurgitate the same old arguments about how vitamin C will not work, or worse yet make you ill.

Even Harvard Health states on April 1st, 2020, “Some critically ill patients with COVID-19 have been treated with high doses of intravenous (IV) vitamin C in the hope that it will hasten recovery. However, there is no clear or convincing scientific evidence that it works for COVID-19 infections, and it is not a standard part of treatment for this new infection. (Emphasis mine). The standard of care? Just what is the standard of care in the treatment of COVID-19? This statement doesn’t make any sense. The front line docs and nurses are trying anything and everything to help these patients. We don’t have time to wait months for double blind studies. This is a war!

I’m convinced that no matter how long vitamin C therapy will be used to help patients with many conditions, including COVID-19, the pundits simply cannot help themselves, and feel obligated to deny the benefits of vitamin C therapy regardless of the clinical outcomes.

EXCLUSIVE: Evidence Shows Director General of World Health Organization Severely Overstated the Fatality Rate of the Coronavirus Leading to the Greatest Global Panic in History

“The controversial Ethiopian politician and Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, claimed in a press conference in early March that the fatality rate for the coronavirus was many multiples that of the fatality rate of the common flu. This egregiously false premise has led to the greatest panic in world history.” Click here for the entire story.

This is a very interesting article which helps to separate out the actual death rate from  influenza vs. coronavirus. There appears to be more controversy then one would first assume.
