The American experiment: recovery, revolution or resignation (to decline & fall)?

As I put fingers to keyboard (August 2020) it is very evident that America is in very deep trouble. Our chickens have come home to roost. While debates rage about the exact nature and extend of the sins, unredressed wrongs, bad policies, corruption, inequality, racism and xenophobia and such that landed us in such dire straits, and how to address or remedy them, I for one am convinced that neither a left or right wing sociopolitical revolution will have a good outcome. Nor will scraping everything up to and including the Constitution and starting over “from scratch” (The French Committee of Public Safety dictatorship tried their hand at radically reinventing France’s social, economic & political order including introducing a secular Republican calendar and dechristianizing France. These extreme reforms paved the way for the Reign of Terror).   

And, mind you, I am a democratic socialist. I’ve been one since 1986. But I also know how often revolutions meant to liberate “the people” – especially those that took place in the last century – wound up suppressing dissent and even eliminating dissenters (and other “undesirables”) by often cruel, inhuman means.

In light of human nature as reflected in history, it is difficult to imagine that any revolution-spawned modern day government, no matter how benign its intentions, will be able to resist relying on sophisticated surveillance, cyber warfare and AI technologies to “manage” its people and fend off its enemies (Real or imagined/contrived).

And now the good news:

Photo by Andrea Piacquadio

University of Toronto scientists created a face mask that “deactivates” the COVID-19 virus in minutes (And it is on the market!) – https://bit.ly/2C5dl7u/

It appears that many people who contract Covid-19 — including asymptomatic young people with NO apparent risk factors — are harboring a stealth biological  timebomb in their bodies. One in which the virus may cause organ damage slowly over time and/or reside in body tissue reservoirs only to become active when triggered by specific influences or conditions. If so, then in the years to come we are going to see more and more people surface with significant organ damage that will leave them hobbled, disabled or worse.

This brings me to: containment & management of the Covid-19 virus (in infected people) is IMO the most reasonable health & life preserving approach at this point in time. And in this regard I recently connected some biological dots  — intracellular pathways I figured out how to exploit as part of a body of bench & whiteboard ( theory) work I did back in the 1980s —  with similar pathways which have come to light with respect to Covid-19 activity in lung, heart & other cells. This came together suddenly on the heel of emails I got last week (July 6-10) from a Dean of Medicine at Emory University followed almost at the same time by an article published in a major peer reviewed journal in which a team of researchers outlined a containment approach which dovetails with insights I had back in the 1980s. I am now quickly maneuvering to take advantage of this biological Achilles heel in Covid-19 infected volunteers.

If I am indeed on the right track then I will be able to hand folks whose bodies harbor the Covid-19 virus a way to induce lysis (die off) in many virus infected cells, reduce viral penetration of new cells and interfere with the viruses ability to replicate. Containment and management.

Progress in “slaying” the dragon (COVID-19)

(More like caging the dragon)

If you have been following the science coming out on the COVI9-19 virus and how it wrecks havoc in those who contract it, then you know that a growing body of evidence (including autopsies of people who died of infection) points to one of its major pathological mechanisms being epitheliitis, i.e., inflammation of the lining of blood vessels. The virus is vasculotrophic in nature which means it has its most dire effects via its attraction to (and infection of) the epithelial layer of cells in blood vessels including those in the lungs. This produces microthromboses (little clots) that trigger an ever-expanding spiral of pathology and a flood of cytokines which lands some folks in ICU wards and (unfortunately) Forest Lawn.

And, while there are drugs and steroids that work well at various stages to slow and even halt this spiral, nature too offers remediative compounds of merit which I have been working with. Indeed, my focus has expanded from thwarting virus replication and preventing virus attachment to and penetration of lung cells (which can result in viral pneumonia, sepsis and death), to countering epitheliitis and microthromboses formation.

I think in time I will have all the dietary and other components in-place to make Covid-19 (and perhaps some other viral) infections less likely to reach the stage at which hospitalization and aggressive forms of medical intervention are required.

Nota bene: My approach is geared to complement traditional medical measures and not to replace them. I suspect it will prove especially helpful in people who wind up with chronic relapsing Covid-19 disease.

A COVID-19 break: America’s 1st circulated coin contains an admonition for our times

The photos are of replica Fugio cents (I have about 15 of them in perfect condition). This colonial era coin was designed by Benjamin Franklin and was actually the first official US coin put into circulation. Authentic 1787 Fugio cents in fair to good condition online and in coin shops often run $500 USD ++. I posted these photos mainly because I suspect some of you might enjoy a break from all the COVID-19 news. So why not share something beautiful to behold and historic in nature to boot? BTW, the words “Mind Your Business” on the Fugio cent did not mean “stay to yourself and stay out of my business” This phrase/motto/credo meant “tend to your work related activities and interests”. Note the “We Are One” inscription & 13 interlocked rings (13 colonies) on the coin. Words of wisdom from Colonial times to ours. A memento mori carpe diem pause from moi to y’all.

 
 

Old solution revisited: COVID-19 antibody rich human milk (or colostrum)

She’s examining whether the antibodies lingering in human milk can protect babies — and perhaps even adults one day — from coronavirus.
She’s examining whether the antibodies lingering in human milk can protect babies — and perhaps even adults one day — from coronavirus.
Anthony G. Payne Old story actually but one worth revising. And one I intersected with in the 1980s into the 1990s: A biochemist, Robert Plymate, PhD, developed a patented way to process antibody rich colostrum from cows specific for human diseases. One example: he injected pregnant cows with tumor cells from a human liver cancer patient and then collected & processed the antibody rich resulting colostrum (Nota bene: The cows could not get cancer from the injected human tumor cells but did form antibodies to it). This was purified and injected into the patient who donated the cancer cells resulting in complete remission. I worked for and with Dr. Bob in the early 1990s — Ag lab & hothouse complex outside Lincoln, Nebraska. Given this, taking colostrum from lactating women who are COVID-19+ might be a great way to wind up with antibody rich material for purification & administration to very sick COVID-19 sufferers via IV. Just some (ahem) food — milk of human wellness, as it were– for thought.

UPDATED: Masks coated with antivirus liquid preventing infection with COVID-19

My mini-army of Japanese volunteers have been coating masks with a NaCl+KCl+Tween20 solution for many weeks now and then donning them every time they circulate in public (Readers will find the procedure for making up the spray on liquid at-home here). Not one has gotten infected with COVID-19, influenza or even a cold. While people all around them are getting sick and panicking, they are sailing on unaffected.

Pointer: Coat both sides of the cotton mask(s) you use in public. This way if you should pick up the COVID-19 virus on your fingertips and touch your mask the viral particles should die quickly. Of course, once you are back home it would probably be a good idea to sterilize the mask and apply a fresh coating of the antivirus solution to both sides, let it dry thoroughly, and use it religiously (The coating should kill all the viruses that land on it but I tend to err on the side of caution aka “Just in case”).

From my lab bench to you:  I have been experimenting with many nontoxic antiviral medicinal plant extracts & fungi derived compounds (COVID-19 is an RNA virus). All of these have garnered bench top and empiric evidence of effectiveness against various coronavirus family members including Ebola and SARS. However, it appears they were not pursued by drug companies probably because they cannot patent the anti-RNA compounds in them (Too many and most likely they work in-tandem in vivo and not as well when isolated and purified).

My focus has been on developing a an oral agent whose mode of action will (among other things) make it less likely for the COVID-19 virus to attach to and penetrate lung cells (which can result in viral pneumonia, sepsis and death), as well as to upregulate angiotensin-converting enzyme-2 (ACE2) which has been shown to reduce the severity of coronavirus infections.

Stopping the COVID-19 pandemic: history repeats itself

1918 Spanish Flu historical documentary | Swine Flu Pandemic | Deadly plague of 1918

 


If you think the measures being enacted recently to prevent the spread of COVID-19 sound familiar, you know your history of pandemics very well indeed! As this documentary richly illustrates social distancing, masks, rapid infection & death in some people, healthcare workers struggling to deal with patients and contracting the infection themselves, product shortages ….everything we are seeing & grappling with now…pretty much was done or seen during the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918. I might add: In the SFE-1918 the 2nd and 3rd waves of infection were worse than the first. Watch this documentary to understand why.

COVID-19: Don’t let fear get the best of you

“Here’s what matters most in the Covid-19 pandemic”

“Here’s what matters most in the Covid-19 pandemic”

As a lay monk I would be remiss not to address the spiritual dimension of the COVID-19 crisis.  This 29m16s video features Rev. Costi Hinn discussing “Here’s what matters most in the Covid-19 pandemic

What Rev. Hinn has to share is what I’d characterize as the “first steps” in the covenanting process (A process the early believers referred to as “The Way” and which includes repentance/redemption, deliverance, empowerment, and sanctification). 

Now, mind you, as an American Indian (Bureau of Indian Affairs CDIB card holder & member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma) I am emphatically not interested in strong-arming or coercing people into taking my perspective on or advocacy of anything. My indigenous ancestors valued individual choice and conscience though sadly they were often forced to accept customs, practices and more that they found reprehensible or otherwise objectionable. 

So I do not come to you with the intention of violating your power to choose what you believe and do in life. You can elect to play the video of Rev. Hinn, or not. And if you do hear him out, you are at certainly liberty to disagree with and reject what he says. How can it be otherwise? After all God forces no one to believe in him or to accept his terms for entering into and cultivating a relationship with him. Why would he want to be surrounded by those who he had to force into a relationship with him? (Would you want to be surrounded by folks you had to force to hang around you?)

Whether your way or The Way, you won’t (ahem) ruffle my feathers.

For those who do set out on The Way, here are some helpful resources to inform, guide & empower your journey:

NYC hospitals using high dose IV vitamin C on COVID-19 patients

New York hospitals treating coronavirus patients with vitamin C

By Lorena Mongelli and Bruce Golding

March 24, 2020 | 5:04pm |

EXCERPTS FROM THIS ARTICLE

Dr. Andrew G. Weber, a pulmonologist and critical-care specialist affiliated with two Northwell Health facilities on Long Island, said his intensive-care patients with the coronavirus immediately receive 1,500 milligrams of intravenous vitamin C.

Identical amounts of the powerful antioxidant are then readministered three or four times a day, he said.

A spokesman for Northwell — which operates 23 hospitals, including Lenox Hill Hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side — said vitamin C was being “widely used” as a coronavirus treatment throughout the system, but noted that medication protocols varied from patient to patient.

“As the clinician decides,” spokesman Jason Molinet said.

The vitamin C is administered in addition to such medicines as the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, the antibiotic azithromycin, various biologics and blood thinners, Weber said.

Weber, 34, said vitamin C levels in coronavirus patients drop dramatically when they suffer sepsis, an inflammatory response that occurs when their bodies overreact to the infection.

“It makes all the sense in the world to try and maintain this level of vitamin C,” he said.

A clinical trial on the effectiveness of intravenous vitamin C on coronavirus patients began Feb. 14 at Zhongnan Hospital in Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the pandemic

The fish tank cleaner contains the same active ingredient as the drug, but in a different form that can poison people.
Anthony G. Payne The toxicity of even the right drug – chloroquine — as well as hydroxychloroquinine — and the lack of substantive evidence that they actually produce benefits outweighing the risks — are prompting many scientists and docs to hit the pause button on them. However, back in the mid 1980s while dealing with a handful of AIDs sufferers (Dallas) I had them try a specific compound that was nontoxic — showed activity against certain parasites and viruses — and which actually had an positive impact of their condition. This whole chloroquinine discussion got to me to reflecting on this. Now I am arranging to obtain my old chemical friend and combine it with the other nontoxic antiviral compounds to see if it will make a dent in COVID-19 in the lab (I do not work with the actual virus but have a pipeline to researchers who are and who are seeking novel solutions to test against this insidious virus). Ever forward….

Antivirus nasal spray you can make at home (Git-R-Done)

The photo is one of the many bottles of saline/iota carrageenan/polysorbate 20 (antivirus) nasal spray I processed on 3-17-2020 in my lab. Giveaways, yes, to family, friends & volunteers.

Here is my step-by-step guide to making up the spray at home: https://biotheorist.wordpress.com/2020/03/21/make-it-at-home-antivirus-nasal-spray/

If you elect to create your own supply of the nasal spray, I would recommend you buy the base saline moisturizing spray PDQ. It seems as though people have not only been buying up food and toilet paper, but vitamin C, cotton face masks (out-of-stock through most vendors like Walmart), and every conceivable “immune boosting” herbal product or nutraceutical as well. I thus would not be surprised to see online sellers of saline moisturizing spray begin to post “out of stock” notices on their ads and listings for this item.

COVID-19 turnarounds in 50 hospitalized patients (moderate to severe) – no deaths — results reported during an international video medical conference

COVID-19 turnarounds in 50 hospitalized patients (moderate to severe) – no deaths — results reported during an international video medical conference

In this 8m16s video Richard Cheng, MD, PhD shares some very good news on the response of hospitalized COVID-19 patients to high dose IV-vitamin C therapy:

 

Hospital treatment of serious and critical COVID-19 infection with high-dose Vitamin C

From Dr. Cheng’s blog entry:

The IVC dosing was around 10,000 mg – 20,000 mg a day for 7-10 days, with 10,000 mg for moderate cases and 20,000 for more severe cases by the pulmonary status (mostly the oxygenation index) and the coagulation status. All patients who received IVC improved and there was no mortality. Compared to the average of 30-day hospital stay for all Covid-19 patients, those patients who received high dose IVC had a hospital stay that‘s about 3-5 days shorter than the overall patients. Dr. Mao discussed one severe case in particular who was deteriorating rapidly. He gave a bolus of 50,000 mg Vit C IV over a period of 4 hours. They watched the patient’s pulmonary (oxygenation index) status stabilizing and improving in real-time. There were no side effects reported to all the cases treated with high dose IVC.

COVID-19: Don’t let fear get the best of you

 

This 33 minute video by a Texas-based documentarian concerns the role of fear in causing otherwise rational people to hit the “COVID-19 panic button” and engage in things like buying a year’s worth of toilet paper, paper towels or pop tarts, getting into fistfights (in at least one Costco), and just behaving like world class horse’s patoots.

By now virtually all of you reading this know what to do: follow CDC guidelines to prevent getting infected and keep enough extra food, toilet paper, medicines and such on-hand to weather a few weeks to a month or so hunkered down at home.  Don’t however let dark “worst case scenarios” overrule good sense and make you part of a self-fulfilling doomsday prophecy.

Now for those evangelical and fundamentalist Christian believers who actually do believe this is “doomsday” (which is to say the “last hour of the end times”) based on a reading of modern events & news into ancient cryptic prophecies in the Hebrew scriptures and Christian New Testament: how can we be so close to the end of the age when the 3rd Temple has not been built in Jerusalem? After all, it is clearly stated in 2 Thessalonians 2:4 that the anti-Messiah (faux messiah) will enter the 3rd Temple and proclaim himself divine.  No 3rd Temple, no “we are entering the tail end of the end times”.

I have to wonder just how much “end time prophecy” books, TV shows, radio programs, movies and such have influenced not just believers but non-believers as well? But least it be said I am laying all the blame on masters of eisegesis, let’s not forget the steady diet of doomsday sci-fi movies, books, short stories and so forth many (most?) of us have fed on down through the years.  It is hard not to think that we’ve been primed (conditioned?) by certain Bible prophecy teachers and Hollywood sci-fi movies to see imminent doomsday in events or happenings that cannot possibly deliver the dark goods, while dismissing or downplaying those that can eventually upend civilization like global warming.

There is one sci-fi show I think we could gleam some wisdom from to help us get through our current difficulty: the 1981 BBC TV adaptation of Douglas Adam’s “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” . Specifically, the message (advice?) which vibrantly flashes on the screen of the electronic guidebook Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe: “Don’t Panic”.

Maybe Adam’s anticipated our day. The prophet Adams? Beats some of those who claim the title & role these days.

Not one has gotten infected with COVID-19, influenza or even a cold. While people all around them are getting sick and panicking, they are sailing on unaffected.

Pointer: Coat both sides of the cotton mask(s) you use in public. This way if you should pick up the COVID-19 virus on your fingertips and touch your mask the viral particles should die quickly. Of course, once you are back home make sure to sterilize the mask and apply a fresh coating of the antivirus solution to both sides, let it dry thoroughly, and use it religiously.

From my lab bench to you:  I have been experimenting with many nontoxic antiviral medicinal plant extracts & fungi derived compounds (COVID-19 is an RNA virus). All of these have garnered bench top and empiric evidence of effectiveness against various coronavirus family members including Ebola and SARS. However, it appears they were not pursued by drug companies probably because they cannot patent the anti-RNA compounds in them (Too many and most likely they work in-tandem in vivo and not as well when isolated and purified).

My focus has been on developing a an oral agent whose mode of action will (among other things) make it less likely for the COVID-19 virus to attach to and penetrate lung cells (which can result in viral pneumonia, sepsis and death), as well as to upregulate angiotensin-converting enzyme-2 (ACE2) which has been shown to reduce the severity of coronavirus infections.
