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.

Are we fast approaching the end of the age (aka “the last days”)?

Are we fast approaching the end of the age (as prophesied in the Bible and by various believers down through the centuries)?


The Didache – The Lord’s Teaching Through the Twelve Apostles to the Nations 

Chapter 16. Watchfulness; the Coming of the Lord. Watch for your life’s sake. Let not your lamps be quenched, nor your loins unloosed; but be ready, for you know not the hour in which our Lord will come. But come together often, seeking the things which are befitting to your souls: for the whole time of your faith will not profit you, if you are not made perfect in the last time. For in the last days false prophets and corrupters shall be multiplied, and the sheep shall be turned into wolves, and love shall be turned into hate; for when lawlessness increases, they shall hate and persecute and betray one another, and then shall appear the world-deceiver as Son of God, and shall do signs and wonders, and the earth shall be delivered into his hands, and he shall do iniquitous things which have never yet come to pass since the beginning. Then shall the creation of men come into the fire of trial, and many shall be made to stumble and shall perish; but those who endure in their faith shall be saved from under the curse itself. And then shall appear the signs of the truth: first, the sign of an outspreading in heaven, then the sign of the sound of the trumpet. And third, the resurrection of the dead — yet not of all, but as it is said: “The Lord shall come and all His saints with Him.” Then shall the world see the Lord coming upon the clouds of heaven.


For those readers who would welcome an authoritative and balanced commentary on the Didache I highly recommend The Way of Life (Didache: A New Translation and Messianic Jewish Commentary) by Toby Janicki (600 pages, Vine of David © 2017).


On the Last Times, the Antichrist, and the End of the World

St. Ephraim the Syrian

Dearly beloved brothers, believe the Holy Spirit who speaks in us. We have already told you that the end of the world is near, the consummation remains. Has not faith withered away among mankind? How many foolish things are seen among youths, how many crimes among prelates, how many lies among priests, how many perjuries among deacons! There are evil deeds among the ministers, adulteries in the aged, wantonness in the youths—in mature women false faces, in virgins dangerous traces! In the midst of all this there are the wars with the Persians, and we see struggles with diverse nations threatening and “kingdom rising against kingdom’’ (Matt. 24:7). When the Roman Empire begins to be consumed by the sword, the coming of the Evil One is at hand. It is necessary that the world come to an end at the completion of the Roman empire.

In those days two brothers will come to the Roman empire who will rule with one mind; but because one will surpass the other, there will be a schism between them. And so the Adversary will be loosed and will stir up hatred between the Persian and Roman empires. In those days many will rise up against Rome; the Jewish people will be her adversaries. There will be stirrings of nations and evil reports, pestilences, famines, and earthquakes in various places. All nations will receive captives; there will be wars and rumors of wars. From the rising to the setting of the sun the sword will devour much. The times will be so dangerous that in fear and trembling they will not permit thought of better things, because many will be the oppressions and desolations of regions that are to come.

We ought to understand thoroughly therefore, my brothers, what is imminent or overhanging. Already there have been hunger and plagues, violent movements of nations and signs, which have been predicted by the Lord, they have already been fulfilled (consummated), and there is not other which remains, except the advent of the wicked one in the completion of the Roman kingdom. Why therefore are we occupied with worldly business, and why is our mind held fixed on the lusts of the world or on the anxieties of the ages? Why therefore do we not reject every care of worldly business, and why is our mind held fixed on the lusts of the world or on the anxieties of the ages? Why therefore do we not reject every care of earthly actions and prepare ourselves for the meeting of the Lord Christ, so that he may draw us from the confusion, which overwhelms all the world? Believe you me, dearest brother, because the coming (advent) of the Lord is nigh, believe you me, because the end of the world is at hand, believe me, because it is the very last time. Or do you not believe unless you see with your eyes? See to it that this sentence be not fulfilled among you of the prophet who declares: “Woe to those who desire to see the day of the Lord!” For all the saints and elect of God are gathered, prior to the tribulation that is to come, and are taken to the Lord lest they see the confusion that is to overwhelm the world because of our sins. And so, brothers most dear to me, it is the eleventh hour, and the end of the world comes to the harvest, and angels, armed and prepared, hold sickles in their hands, awaiting the empire of the Lord. And we think that the earth exists with blind infidelity, arriving at its downfall early. Commotions are brought forth, wars of diverse peoples and battles and incursions of the barbarians threaten, and our regions shall be desolated, and we neither become very much afraid of the report nor of the appearance, in order that we may at least do penance; because they hurl fear at us, and we do not wish to be changed, although we at least stand in need of penance for our actions!

When therefore the end of the world comes, there arise diverse wars, commotions on all sides, horrible earthquakes, perturbations of nations, tempests throughout the lands, plagues, famine, drought throughout the thoroughfares, great danger throughout the sea and dry land, constant persecutions, slaughters and massacres everywhere, fear in the homes, panic in the cities, quaking in the thoroughfares, suspicions in the male, anxiety in the streets. In the desert people become senseless, spirits melt in the cities. A friend will not be grieved over a friend, neither a brother for a brother, nor parents for their children, nor a faithful servant for his master, but one inevitability shall overwhelm them all; neither is anyone able to be recovered in that time, who has not been made completely aware of the coming danger, but all people, who have been constricted by fear, are consumed because of the overhanging evils.

Whenever therefore the earth is agitated by the nations, people will hide themselves from the wars in the mountains and rocks, by caves and caverns of the earth, by graves and memorials of the dead, and there, as they waste away gradually by fear, they draw breath, because there is not any place at all to flee, but there will be concession and intolerable pressure. And those who are in the east will flee to the west, and moreover, those who are in the west shall flee to the east, and there is not a safer place anywhere, because the world shall be overwhelmed by worthless nations, whose aspect appears to be of wild animals more than that of men. Because those very much horrible nations, most profane and most defiled, who do not spare lives, and shall destroy the living from the dead, shall consume the dead, they eat dead flesh, they drink the blood of beasts, they pollute the world, contaminate all things, and the one who is able to resist them is not there. In those days people shall not be buried, neither Christian, nor heretic, neither Jew, nor pagan, because of fear and dread there is not one who buries them; because all people, while they are fleeing, ignore them.

Whenever the days of the times of those nations have been fulfilled, after they have destroyed the earth, it shall rest; and now the kingdom of the Romans is removed from everyday life, and the empire of the Christians is handed down by God and Peter; and then the consummation comes, when the kingdom of the Romans begins to be fulfilled, and all dominions and powers have been fulfilled. Then that worthless and abominable dragon shall appear, he, whom Moses named in Deuteronomy, saying: Dan is a young lion, reclining and leaping from Basan. Because he reclines in order that he may seize and destroy and slay. Indeed (he is) a young whelp of a lion not as the lion of the tribe of Judah, but roaring because of his wrath, that he may devour. “And he leaps out from Basan.” “Basan” certainly is interpreted “confusion.” He shall rise up from the confusion of his iniquity. The one who gathers together to himself a partridge the children of confusion, also shall call them, whom he has not brought forth, just as Jeremiah the prophet says. Also in the last day they shall relinquish him just as confused.

When therefore the end of the world comes, that abominable, lying and murderous one is born from the tribe of Dan. He is conceived from the seed of a man and from an unclean or most vile virgin, mixed with an evil or worthless spirit. But that abominable corrupter, more of spirits than of bodies, while a youth, the crafty dragon appears under the appearance of righteousness, before he takes the kingdom. Because he will be craftily gentle to all people, not receiving gifts, not placed before another person, loving to all people, quiet to everyone, not desiring gifts, appearing friendly among close friends, so that men may bless him, saying, he is a just man, not knowing that a wolf lies concealed under the appearance of a lamb, and that a greedy man is inside under the skin of a sheep.

But when the time of the abomination of his desolation begins to approach, having been made legal, he takes the empire, and, just as it is said in the Psalm:—They have been made for the undertaking for the sons of Loth, the Moabites and the Ammanites shall meet him first as their king. Therefore, when he receives the kingdom, he orders the temple of God to be rebuilt for himself, which is in Jerusalem; who, after coming into it, he shall sit as God and order that he be adored by all nations, since he is carnal and filthy and mixed with worthless spirit and flesh. Then that eloquence shall be fulfilled of Daniel the prophet:–And he shall not know the God of their fathers, and he shall not know the desires of women. Because the very wicked serpent shall direct every worship to himself. Because he shall put forth an edict so that people may be circumcised according to the rite of the old law. Then the Jews shall congratulate him, because he gave them again the practice of the first covenant; then all people from everywhere shall flock together to him at the city of Jerusalem, and the holy city shall be trampled on by the nations for forty-two months, just as the holy apostle says in the Apocalypse, which become three and a half years, 1,260 days.

In these three years and a half the heaven shall suspend its dew; because there will be no rain upon the earth, and the clouds shall cease to pass through the air, and the stars shall be seen with difficulty in the sky because of the excessive dryness, which happens in the time of the very fierce dragon. Because all great rivers and very powerful fountains that overflow with themselves shall be dried up, torrents shall dry up their water-courses because of the intolerable age, and there will be a great tribulation, as there has not been since people began to be upon the earth, and there will be famine and an insufferable thirst. And children shall waste away in the bosom of their mothers, and wives upon the knees of their husbands, by not having victuals to eat. Because there will be in those days lack of bread and water, and no one is able to sell or to buy of the grain of the fall harvest, unless he is one who has the serpentine sign on the forehead or on the hand. Then gold and silver and precious clothing or precious stones shall lie along the streets, and also even every type of pearls along the thoroughfares and streets of the cities, but there is not one who may extend the hand and take or desire them, but they consider all things as good as nothing because of the extreme lack and famine of bread, because the earth is not protected by the rains of heaven, and there will be neither dew nor moisture of the air upon the earth. But those who wander through the deserts, fleeing from the face of the serpent, bend their knees to God, just as lambs to the adders of their mothers, being sustained by the salvation of the Lord, and while wandering in states of desertion, they eat herbs.

Then, when this inevitability has overwhelmed all people, just and unjust, the just, so that they may be found good by their Lord; and indeed the unjust, so that they may be damned forever with their author the Devil, and, as God beholds the human race in danger and being tossed about by the breath of the horrible dragon, he sends to them consolatory proclamation by his attendants, the prophets Enoch and Elijah, who, while not yet tasting death, are the servants for the heralding of the second coming of Christ, and in order to accuse the enemy. And when those just ones have appeared, they confuse indeed the antagonistic serpent with his cleverness and they call back the faithful witnesses to God, in order to (free them) from his seduction…

And when the three and a half years have been completed, the time of the antichrist, through which he will have seduced the world, after the resurrection of the two prophets, in the hour which the world does not know, and on the day which the enemy of the son of perdition does not know, will come the sign of the Son of Man, and coming forward the Lord shall appear with great power and much majesty, with the sign of the wood of salvation going before him, and also even with all the powers of the heavens with the whole chorus of the saints, with those who bear the sign of the holy cross upon their shoulders, as the angelic trumpet precedes him, which shall sound and declare: Arise, O sleeping ones, arise, meet Christ, because his hour of judgment has come! Then Christ shall come and the enemy shall be thrown into confusion, and the Lord shall destroy him by the spirit of his mouth. And he shall be bound and shall be plunged into the abyss of everlasting fire alive with his father Satan; and all people who do his wishes shall perish with him forever; but the righteous ones shall inherit everlasting life with the Lord forever and ever.

Why Is The Tribe Of Dan Missing From The Book Of Revelation? –   February 20, 2017 by Jack Wellman


https://catholicprophecy.org/monk-adso/

The prophecy of Monk Adso dates back to the 10th Century.

“Against the faithful will he (the Antichrist) rise up in three ways — that is, by terror, by gifts, and by wonders; to the believers in him will he give gold and silver in abundance; but those whom he shall fail to corrupt by presents he will overcome by fear, and those whom he shall fail to vanquish by fear he will seek to seduce by signs and wonders…

NOTE: Other prophecies describe the Antichrist as a charismatic ruler whose false miracles will seduce the elect.

“The ruined Temple also, which Solomon raised to God, he shall build and restore to its former state… and he shall circumcise himself, and lie that he is the Son of God almighty… Thereafter shall he send his messengers and preachers to the whole world.

“Then shall all the Jews flock unto him, and thinking they shall receive Christ they shall receive the devil… Coming to Jerusalem he shall be circumcised, saying to the Jews, I am the Christ promised unto you, who have come for your weal that I may gather and defend you that are scattered…

NOTE: This theme is spoken of again and again. The Antichrist will make Jerusalem the seat of his kingdom and will lead the Jewish people into believing that he is their long-awaited Messiah.

“Then shall be sent into the world the two great prophets Elias and Enoch, who shall forearm the faithful with godly weapons against the task of the Antichrist, and they shall encourage and get them ready for the war… But after they have accomplished their preaching, the Antichrist shall rise up and slay them, and after three days they shall be raised up by the Lord…

“The doctors also teach, as saith Pope Gregory, that Michael the Archangel shall destroy him (the Antichrist) on Mount Olivet in his pavilion and seat, in that place where the Lord ascended into heaven…”


BOOKS

Robert Van Kampen’s “The Sign” (1992) and his “The Rapture Question Answered: Plain and Simple” (1997). Van Kampen’s makes a powerful argument for a pre-(God’s) Wrath rapture of believers as opposed to a Pre-Tribulation or Mid-Tribulation rapture See comments below under the link to Marvin Rosenthal’s book)

Prewrath Rapture of the Church Paperback – June 29, 1990 by Marvin Rosenthal My comments: Rosenthal’s thesis and supporting documentation & reasoning parallels a line of thought & various conclusions I came to many, many years ago: Namely that the rapture/parousia (2nd Coming/“catching away”) by Messiah Yeshua of believers will NOT occur before the Tribulation or Great Tribulation but instead will take place immediately prior to the outpouring of God’s wrath. Believers will thus be on the earth to endure Satan’s wrath which transpires during the 3.5 year Tribulation period and most of the 3.5 year Great Tribulation period.

The Rabbi Who Found Messiah: The Story of Yitzhak Kaduri and His Prophecies of the Endtime First Edition, First edition (2013) by Carl Gallups. My thoughts: This book tells the story of a revered Orthodox Rabbi who claimed to have seen messiah and wrote down his name (revealed at a specific time after his passing per his instructions) as “Yeshua” (Jesus). However, as part of his claim he stated that the messiah is physically alive and walking about Israel which suggests he saw a counterfeit Yeshua – possibly the Antimessiah depicted in various prophetic books in the Bible (Yeshua in the Brit Chadashah/New Testament returns in a supernatural way at the end of the Great Tribulation and is not born a 2nd time physically into this world).

 I Saw the Tribulation .. Ken Peters .. 2000 

In 1980 Peters, a nominal Catholic at the time had a super vivid prophetic dream in which he saw how the Tribulation will unfold in the US and across the world. As Peters himself shares in the video, he was a Catholic had never heard or read anything about the “end times” or the Antimessiah and had also never heard any priest do a reading or preach from the book of Revelations. So he went into his prophetic dream with no prior exposure to the things he saw unfold and transpire.

According to this documentary posted during 2018 Peters described 14 things in his dream — most technological in nature – -which have been developed in the 30 years since his 1980 experience: Ken Peters saw 14 End Times prophecies 30 years ago now fulfilled in the news. (New Edited Version)

One of the things Peters (now a nondenominational evangelical pastor) described is blue helmeted & blue ball cap wearing police on patrol in partially destroyed American cities (He later realized he was being shown UN forces). The UN had no blue helmets or ball caps when Peters had his dream.

In the wake of the police murder of George Lloyd, an African-American gentleman, on May 26, 2020 in Minneapolis (Minn.) and the ensuing unrest, looting and riots in many major US cities, it is rumored that some government officials have bandied about the idea of having UN forces help keep or restore order in some American cities. If true, it is highly unlikely that UN troops will be mobilized now or in the foreseeable future anywhere in the US. However, the mere fact anyone in any official capacity would entertain asking the UN to deploy troops in America to deal with the current spate of protests, looting and such, suggests that if and when a major breakdown in civil order occurs across the US — perhaps precipitated by a massive natural or human-made calamity or series of calamities — lawmakers might ask the UN to mobilize some of its troops to help police areas plagued by intense unrest, chaos and crime.


Concluding remarks

No matter what conclusions you reach about our place as a world on the prophetic timeline, one of the most important things you can do to prepare for whatever lies ahead is to “get on God’s page”:

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”).

Click to access additional COVID-19 countermeasures.

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.

Killing COVID-19 on surfaces & in the air: can charged particles pull this off?

Bengaluru Scientist Claims New Medical Device Can Neutralise Coronavirus, Will be Sent to US to Test

A medical electronics research unit, Organisation De Scalene, claims it has developed the prototype of a gadget that could neutralise the spread of the virus. The prototype is being sent to the University of Maryland in the US this week, for the tests to be corroborated and its efficacy and reach to be verified.

Chairman of the organisation, Dr. Rajah Vijay Kumar, said that what his institute has innovated is a small device or gadget that can be kept in homes, auditoriums, offices, schools, cars… everywhere.

Explaining the science behind it, he said coronavirus is a spiral ball-like thing with a lots of spikes called ‘S-protein’. These proteins, he said, are positive cells and negative-seeking – when your body comes in contact the viruses thus go into the body and because cells have negative potential, it sticks in cells and releases its DNA into it and starts replicating. That is how the virus survives.

“This gadget we have developed only releases a huge amount of electrons – these viruses don’t know the difference between electrons of your body or others. Once the electrons are released, the virus cells get neutralised. Any infected person comes in – if he touches something, these electrons will neutralise all the viral electrons. After that, even if you ingest it, it goes into your stomach as a piece of protein but won’t cause damage,” he claimed.

(Emphasis mine)

This approach rang a bell so I checked around and came up with this article from 2003: Air ionisers wipe out hospital infections (New Scientist, 3 January 2003)

Research by electronics company Sharp has shown that positive and negative ions produced by their air conditioning systems can inactivate viruses including influenza. But the new study is the first to link such an effect to reduced infections in hospitals.

A little more digital archeology turned up: Ionising air conditioners ‘zap flu’ (Sharp Plasmacluster, September 11, 2002)

Sep 11, 2002 – The “plasmacluster ion air purification” system generates positive and negative ions, which react with microparticles, including microbes

However, what the Bengaluru scientists developed sounds like it puts out far more charged particles than what a typical room ionizer does. Obviously the thing to do is wait for it to be cleared by the FDA for sale in the USA and then check out the machine specs. But, for those who want to press ahead and experiment with a Sharp ionizing machine (Plasmacluster), here is a link to the Google results I got for this particular model: Google shopping results for Sharpe Plasma Cluster air conditioning system

For those intrepid readers who want to see reviews of other ionizers, here are links to two such articles:

The question naturally arises: are air ioniziners a “risk free” technology? No, at least for those folks with asthma, allergies and possibly some other medical conditions. Here is a Web MD article on this:

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

Anthony G. Payne Dr. Dennis is a professor of bioengineering at the University of North Carolina (UNC) and worked for NASA as a research scientist. I actually have been evaluating the efficacy of his unique M1 PEMF technology to remediate pain & stimulate cartilage and bone regeneration in volunteers. We seem to share a passion for equipping people with the know-how to help themselves. Check out this this <5 minute video in which Dr. Dennis explains how to make-a ventilator-at-home.
Anthony G. Payne PS I sincerely hope you NEVER have to make & use this homemade ventilator on a COVID-19 stricken spouse, relative, friend, or such!

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.

Far-UV technology kills COVID-19 & bacteria & fungi in offices, rooms, etc. (Far-UV doesn’t penetrate skin or eyes)

I have been following the evolution of far-UV technology off & on for some time now and it at last appears “ready for prime time”. It generally isn’t cheap and so far as I can determine there are only a handful of firms that offer far-UV lamps/devices.

Nota bene: I have no financial or other connection to these firms or to any company offering, renting, selling, promoting, marketing or otherwise involved in researching, building or selling/distributing far-UV devices, lamps or such.

Don’t overlook the antivirus coating for cotton protective face masks you can make up and apply at home (It is working for those who have consistently worn masks sprayed it in my 2nd home, Japan): https://biotheorist.wordpress.com/2020/03/09/antivirus-coated-masks-preventing-infection-with-covid-19/?fbclid=IwAR1zRoAh6UDNArk-TL-tEw9CGnViSVMTquvZkRWcuOAfTlJB9nKetn1EBws 

Antivirus coated masks preventing infection with COVID-19

Many 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 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.
