Legal NEWS:

The Brussels Times reports:

31 March: “The Belgian State has been ordered to lift “all coronavirus measures” within 30 days, as the legal basis for them is insufficient, a Brussels court ruled on Wednesday.
The League for Human Rights had filed the lawsuit several weeks ago and challenged Belgium’s system of implementing the measures using Ministerial Decrees, which means it is done without any input from parliament.
The judge gave the Belgian State 30 days to provide a sound legal basis, or face a penalty of €5,000 per day that this period is exceeded, with a maximum limit of €200,000, reports Le Soir.
The current coronavirus measures are based on the Civil Safety Act of 2007, which enable the State to react quickly in “exceptional circumstances,” but the judge has now ruled that these laws cannot serve as a basis for the Ministerial Decrees.” [read more]

2) Private Criminal Prosecution Against Parliament

PCP Papers Laid Alleging Pandemic Fraud Against Hancock, Whitty, Vallance & Ferguson

Posted 19th March 2021 by The Bernician
At 16:23 pm this afternoon, one year after the Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens’ decision to reclassify COVID-19 as no longer being considered a High Consequence Infectious Disease was published by Public Health England, the papers were laid electronically at a south London Magistrates Court, in the People’s Union of Britain’s momentous Private Criminal Prosecution against Matt Hancock, Chris Whitty, Patrick Vallance and Neil Ferguson for pandemic fraud.

Early next week, the court will receive a 1,200 page bundle of evidence, which includes expert witness statements from two professors, three doctors, a dental surgeon, a probate solicitor, a mathematician, a retired nuclear submarine data analyst, an independent data analyst and a former CID fraud detective, who is acting as a trustee of the PUB in bringing this most serious of prosecutions to the criminal court.

Declaration Sought

In addition to the charges of fraud by false representation and non-disclosure, in material breaches of sections 2 and 3 of the Fraud Act 2006, we are informally applying for a declaration, under the inherent powers of the court, which states that autopsies are to be carried out for all alleged COVID deaths, which will be held as evidence in the forthcoming trial, on the ground that we have expert witness testimony of the falsification of death certificates, as per UK Government policy.

We are also asking for a moratorium on the UK flu and COVID ‘vaccinations’ programmes to be declared for period of at least 90 days, in order to definitively establish whether it is COVID-19 or ‘vaccines’ that are killing people at a minimum mortality rate of 377 per 100,000 healthy adults, as per the leaked WHO approved ‘vaccine’ safety study which we are adducing into evidence.

Boatload of Prima Facie Evidence

They told us they wanted more prima facie evidence when we made the last application in late 2020, seeking the arrest of Matt Hancock for fraud by non-disclosure over the declassification of COVID-19 by the ACDP.

Well, now they have a veritable boatload of the stuff heading their way, so prepare yourselves for the inevitable shitstorm on the near horizon, after the defendants’ QC’s tell them that their only defence is to plead gross negligence. However, the evidence is so emphatic that they knew exactly what they were doing that the jury will almost certainly convict them as charged.

Nevertheless, don’t expect the defendants to be wheeled off in handcuffs to Belmarsh by tomorrow morning. Whilst it is just about conceivable that the court’s legal department could make an initial assessment of the case by the end of next week, even if it happens that swiftly, the matter will then be passed to the Chief Magistrate of the UK’s legal department, which will probably take at least another week to make their assessment.

Potential Turnaround

In the event all of that is turned around within the next two weeks, the case would then be passed to a senior district judge, who must then decide whether to grant the applications for the summonses and the declaration, whether on paper or at a hearing.

If the summons application is granted, a pleading hearing would then be listed to take place within the next couple of weeks. This would take us to 28 days from now and probably represents the earliest time that the defendants will be summonsed to plead in the Magistrates Court. The informal application for the declaration would also be dealt with at that hearing.

Given the seriousness of the charges and the urgency of the situation, with clear evidence of fraud with murderous consequences already adduced into evidence, we will then ask the court to list a trial by jury at the very earliest opportunity, which will almost certainly take place at the Old Bailey.

If and when all of that transpires rests on the judgment of a single district judge, who will necessarily have experience dealing with such serious charges. However, it is the considered opinion of the former CID fraud detective and the team behind the scenes who have supported me every step of the way that the Statement of Case is “monumental”, “truly historical” and:

“Regardless of the judiciary’s response to it, once the information is in the public realm/consciousness, along with the cited evidence, it will be incendiary. The accused will squeal like the little swines they are.”
[end of update quotes from thebernician.net]

COVID-1984 PCP UPDATE 20 Nov [from Michael O’Bernicia’s Facebook page] After having no red flags raised by the legal advisers at Westminster Magistrates Court this week, we understand that the warrant application is now before the nominated judge and that a decision is imminent.
I realise that things are not happening as quickly as we would all like but please understand that it took six weeks to get to this stage in my family’s PCP against BOS and its receivers in 2013, so in reality the case has progressed at a relatively rapid pace.
We must also take into consideration the fact that, before he rules on the matter, the judge will have to ascertain whether the Director of Public Prosecutions is electing to take over the case, on the ground that it is of such importance that it cannot run as a private prosecution.
Either way, in the absence of a miscarriage of justice, the warrant will be issued and as soon as there are any developments, you will read about them on this page.

UPDATE Friday 13th Nov 6pm [from Michael O’Bernicia’s Facebook page] COVID-1984 NEWSFLASH
The prosecution in People’s Union of Britain v Matt Hancock has just sent the executed form, applying for his arrest warrant, to the court of issue. We have already got the green light from the court’s legal advisers and now we have the chief magistrates’ permission to proceed. They also sent us the form to fill out for the arrest warrant, which has now been acknowledged by the same as having been received. However, the form won’t be processed till Monday [16 Nov.], when it will be sent up to the crown court to be administered and then served upon the defendant, without delay, by the arresting officers, who will soon be appointed by the court.
Therefore, the case will now proceed as directed, unless the Director of Public Prosecutions [DPP] intervenes, which is unlikely because nobody will want to take the poisoned chalice. However, even if they do, we can object on the ground that the DPP is working for the government, so they are obviously conflicted. If they refuse to back down, we will insist that the case proceeds with our legal team. In other words, my family, friends and growing army of peace-keepers and freedom fighters, we are all about to witness the most significant events that have transpired on these shores, since Charles I lost his head.
Words simply cannot adequately express the truly humbling experience of the love, support and commitment I’ve received, from people who all tell me that my words have moved and inspired their hearts into resisting this tyranny, for the sake of our children and grandchildren. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for rising to the call. Very soon, our number will be millions.
This truly is our moment to seize the opportunity to build an advanced civilisation, on the rubble of the corrupted one, which is crumbling around us by COVID-1984 design […]
In that new civilisation, we will protect the unalienable birthrights of the individual from the tyranny of the collective, to become truly self-governed under the Common Law, as expressed in Magna Carta 2020, an idea whose time has come.
From now until you see the arrest live-streamed on the mainstream and alternative media worldwide, let’s make #ArrestMattHancock go viral on every platform, to the point where the People are chanting it in the streets nationwide.

COVID-1984 PCP UPDATE | At 11:11 pm on the 11th day of the 11th month, charges of criminal fraud by non-disclosure were laid against the secretary of state for mandatory vaxxtermination. He has been charged with knowingly failing to disclose to MPs that the fake government lurgy was reclassified as not being a Highly Contagious Infectious Disease, before they voted on the treacherous Coronavirus Act 2020.
Had he done so, there can be no doubt in the mind of any reasonable individual there would have been no possible justification for its enactment. [from Michael O’Bernicia’s Facebook page]

“the case is very simple to understand and prosecute – each MP intentionally relied upon [and then caused the People to rely upon], a series of false statements, which caused the deaths of untold thousands, destroyed the economy and enabled unaccountable and tyrannical government, in breach of section 2 of the Fraud Act 2006, the Treason Felony Act 1348 and articles 1 and 2 of the Bill of Rights 1689.”
“The barrister… is confident that the allegations are founded upon enough evidence to convict and that her partners will be in agreement”

On 15 October we received confirmation that the partners of the firm of barristers we are talking to about the case against Parliament are all in agreement – the case is one that can be won… we are now moving forward into the preparation of the court papers, including an affidavit containing all of the allegations of fraud, treason and genocide. It will be the first time allegations of treason have been made since the aftermath of WWII, whilst genocide is a crime under international law and the such allegations would almost certainly be dealt with in the Hague. … we are aiming to lay the charges in a criminal court as soon as they have been properly drafted.
We will also be seeking an order placing the entire cabinet and their advisers under house arrest, to prevent the rogue government from attempting to murder more people [as well as its opponents, under the new homicide enabling act] with purported statutory impunity.
Here’s a conversation with Mark Devlin youtu.be/w9pm3Z6nFnk. Find all Mark Devlin’s work here: https://djmarkdevlin.com/
#PrivateCriminalProsecutions #PandemicFraud

The final drafting will be done over the weekend and Monday 8 November has been set aside by our legal team for the information to be laid in a criminal court, with summonses to follow without delay.
In addition, the People will also seek an order placing the accused under indefinite house arrest, to prevent any further government crimes being committed.

3) Crimes Against Humanity

In the video below “Crimes against humanity” from 3 Oct., the German top lawyer Dr. Reiner Fuellmich, who has been practicing law primarily as a trial lawyer against fraudulent corporations such as Deutsche Bank, VW and more corporations in the last 26 years, speaks as one of four members of the German Corona Investigative Committee:
those responsible for it will be criminally prosecuted

the allegedly new and highly dangerous coronavirus has not caused any excess mortality anywhere in the world”
This “Corona Crisis” must be renamed as “corona scandal” and those responsible for it will be criminally prosecuted and sued for civil damages by an international committee of lawyers according to section 7 of the International Criminal Code.

Questions:
“Is there a Corona pandemic or is there only a PCR test pandemic?”
Do the so-called anti Corona measures, such as the lockdown, mandatory face masks, social distancing and quarantine regulations serve to protect the world’s population from Corona, or do these measures serve only to make people panic so that they believe without asking any questions, that their lives are in danger, so that in the end the pharmaceutical and tech industries can generate huge profits from the sale of PCR tests, antigen and antibody tests and vaccines, as well as the harvesting of our genetic fingerprints?”

“This Corona Investigative Committee was founded on July 10th by four lawyers in order to determine, through hearing expert testimony of international scientists and other experts.
1) how dangerous is the virus, really?
2) what is the significance of a post positive PCR test?
3) what collateral damage has been caused by the Corona measures, both with respect to the world’s population’s health and with respect to the world’s economy?”

German Lawsuit Against “FactCheckers” Would Force Them To Prove Legitimacy of C0VlD Tests – youtu.be/iKJqDZdiMto

UPDATE 1st December: Dr. Reiner Fuellmich… founding member of the German Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee [from Mercola.com]
The committee is now filing the first of many lawsuits to come, this one against so-called fact checkers on social media. They opted to file a defamation lawsuit on behalf of Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, a former member of the German Congress and the Council of Europe who has been an outspoken critic of PCR testing, as it cannot be used to diagnose infection.”
“Social media companies have labeled Wodarg’s statements as “false,” and by filing a defamation suit, the burden of proof now falls on the fact checkers to prove that they are correct. In other words, to win, the fact checkers must prove that PCR tests diagnose active infection. The scientific evidence proves they don’t, so this case could turn out to be pivotal in the fight against the big tech censorship that keeps the fearmongering alive.”

4) Simon Dolan’s UK legal initiative

Join the Legal Challenge to the UK Govt Lockdown – by Simon Dolan: “We seek an injunction which would immediately halt the Government’s latest lockdown laws. By forcing people to stay at home, and forcing businesses to close, they are, we believe, in contravention of basic Human Rights offered under English Law, that of the right to enjoy your property peacefully.
The lockdown… will lead to far more deaths from suicide, undiagnosed conditions, untreated conditions – indeed far more than would have been potentially saved by the lockdown.

£418,060 pledged of £450,000 stretch target
[17 December] from 14,064 pledges
to take this case through to completion

UPDATE 11 December: This week the Supreme Court has decided to refuse to hear our appeal relating to a Judicial Review into lockdown. 
The Supreme Court decision to refuse to hear an appeal relating to a Judicial Review into lockdown, means that unelected Judges have set a precedent which now makes it  impossible to challenge the Government’s use of the Public Health Act 1984 to trample over Civil Liberties and to emasculate Parliament in the process.

By not allowing the Appeal to go ahead, this puts a protective shield around Ministers and gives them a free run to lock up people in their homes using the Act, without having to worry any more that their actions in using the Act like this are illegal. This is a chilling development which should not be underestimated.

The Government’s ruthless use of the 1984 Act is an effective destruction of democratic process on behalf of the public around the lockdowns we have suffered and any that may happen again in the future. Although lately there has been some pushback from MPs, the decision of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal gives the Government more power than it should rightfully have.

It threatens even to rip up the rights protected by the Magna Carta – the basic premise of you being free unless it is specifically unlawful has now effectively been changed, meaning that you now have to have the Govt’s permission to do literally anything. This goes against 800+ years of legal principle.

“By criticising us for having a ‘Rolling Judicial Review’ case, it means that when a Government in future uses these emergency powers, provided that they change the regulations every time they are challenged, they can keep avoiding the very mechanism – Judicial Review – that is there to provide a vital check and balance under the UK’s unwritten constitution. It is ironic that in July of this year, the Government launched a wide ranging review into the scope of judicial review chaired by Lord Faulks QC which has yet to publish its recommendations. 

Equally disturbing is how the lockdown Judicial Review cases have found a lack of willingness from the Courts to challenge Government; Judges have said all along “It isn’t the place of the Court to get involved in politics”. They didn’t make that claim when the Brexit case was going.

From the first directions order made in the Judicial Review claim, it was clear that our unelected judges were entirely dismissive of the notion that we should be able to protect rights in the midst of a Pandemic, or that the Government’s actions could in any way be disproportionate or illegal in terms of the real situation being faced.

No one is disputing the impact on public health as a result of the novel Coronavirus, but far more so the Government’s handling of it, however, I do not feel the judges engaged at all with the key points or the 1,200 pages of evidence that was submitted as part of the case. The judgments and judicial comments made throughout are strongly suggestive of an unwillingness to look at the evidence and to depart from a high level “media” view of the pandemic. This suggests the Courts have not taken the opportunity to scrutinise key statistics and facts around the case, effectively waving away vital points around misleading data being used to justify lockdowns and impose further restrictions. 

While scrutinising this type of data was seen as almost being unholy in March, April and May of 2020, this case, the Dodgy Dossier and the recently and very quietly amended ONS stats used to impose Lockdown 2 on the nation, has shown that, as a seemingly democratic society, it is vital that we do scrutinise what we are being told and that we continue to do so. The Government has used data to terrify the nation into compliance over a virus from which, in the words of the Government’s own medical officers, the vast majority people recover from and many do not even show symptoms of having.

I also feel strongly that our case has been treated with a far different approach to the Brexit case brought by Gina Miller, who twice defeated the Government in the Supreme Court, once over the right of MPs in triggering Article 50 and then again over the Prorogation of Parliament – arguably far less significant to the nation than the greatest economic contraction in peacetime history and the unprecedented restriction of rights, including access to healthcare – that we have seen as a result of Government measures.

The Supreme Court route is one we took as we fully believed in the case. It returned its decision in rapid time in an email of just a few lines long. This is a kick in the face for the thousands of people who have supported this case.

It must be accepted that the path to the Supreme Court is notoriously difficult. Of the many applications for permission to the Supreme Court each year, very few are granted. From July to September of this year, there were 21 applications. Five applications granted but three of them were for cases arising from 1971 shootings in N Ireland. Among them, and one of the most recent cases to be given permission to appeal, were the Government’s own appeal against the appeal court’s decision to let ISIS bride Shamina Begum back into the country pending her appeal. The massive health, civil liberties, parliamentary and economic implications of the use of the 1984 Act, was not, however, deemed worthy of consideration by the Court. 

While the Supreme Court decision is a bitter blow, we have scored many victories and helped give a platform to tens of thousands of people who felt their voices were unheard. We forced SAGE to produce its minutes, got the Government to concede it had not lawfully shut schools, and lit the fire on scrutinizing data and information. 

What started for me as a personal crusade against this Government and their shocking ineptitude quickly turned into a campaign for everyone whose lives have been wrecked by lockdown polices which were implemented in haste and without proper consideration.

We started Keep Britain Free to protect the basic freedoms of everyone living in the UK and it has become one of the fastest growing pressure groups in the UK, with thousands of you joining together to fight creeping totalitarianism. Our legal challenge has become one of the biggest crowdfunded legal cases in British history. We have raised over £416,000 from 14,000 pledges – people from all different walks of life from every corner of the UK. This shows the strength of feeling out there for this ongoing battle. 

Whilst the Supreme Court decision is far from the outcome we were fighting for, our campaign has been vital in giving individuals up and down the country hope during an unprecedented time and in challenging a Government that was simply ruling by decree without any scrutiny. We also believe our findings and evidence, while not considered properly by the judges, will be of use in the inevitable public inquires which will follow and will help history judge the PM, Matt Hancock and their advisers in the light that they deserve. 
Our fight continues and as ever, I will keep you posted on developments.

Update on “Join the Legal Challenge to the UK Govt Lockdown” Simon Dolan, via CrowdJustice 23 Nov:
The legal team has made amends to the 2nd Judicial Review meaning that it’s arguments are in relation not only to the first national lockdown but also include the SECOND lockdown currently taking place in England. The Re-Amended Statement of Facts and Grounds have been filed with the Court and the Government has been served with them.
Our case will argue that the “evidence” presented by Whitty and Vallance at the press conference on 31 October at which the new lockdown was announced included some old, suspect data and was misleading.
We will argue that in fact there was no serious escalation in the epidemic as evidenced by:
– Use of old data and overinflated warnings as to likely deaths – a subject already aired in the media
– The continuing relatively flat excess death figures compared to the five year average for the same period
– The unreliability of PCR tests as a diagnostic tool given their propensity to produce large numbers of “false” positives by picking up dead virus particles in people who have long since recovered from infection
– Lack of transparency about NHS capacity and bed occupancy and in relation to typical conditions at this time of year in previous years with the onset of the usual autumn/ winter upsurge in respiratory infections

That being the case, imposing a lockdown with all the disastrous consequences it has for health, economy etc was disproportionate and irrational.
It is only right that the consequences of both lockdowns imposed on the nation are properly considered by the Court. The most recent measures were pitched to England on the promise that come December 2nd, restrictions would be lifted and people up and down the nation could enjoy Christmas festivities.
Reports suggest that the UK could be plunged into yet more restrictions under the guise of a strengthened tiered approach with SAGE also suggesting further lockdowns will be needed to ‘recover’ from eased restrictions.
What has become evident from the first and second lockdown is that this cycle is not sustainable. Whatever economic measures and packages the Government dangles in front of us, millions are likely to lose their jobs and businesses will be forced to close down.
This flip-flop approach to lockdown, paired with the complete farce that is Test and Trace, is bringing chaos to every echelon of society. Businesses, already up against the wall, are facing another period of unsettling uncertainty. The unemployment rate continues to surge. School attendance is in chaos and with exams already cancelled for thousands, another generation is at risk of being ruined.
Lockdowns cost lives and cannot be allowed to continue.

Update on “Join the Legal Challenge to the UK Govt Lockdownby Simon Dolan from 3 November:
dear supporter,
I wanted to update you on our appeal, which was heard at one of the highest courts in the land last Thursday and Friday.
The hearing took place in the very grand Court 4 at the Royal Courts of Justice which is the Lord Chief Justice’s Court.
The three appeal judges included the Lord Chief Justice himself, Lord Burnett of Maldon and two other appeal judges Lady Justice King and Lord Justice Singh. It was a ‘hybrid hearing’ which meant that the hearing physically took place in a courtroom but it was also being live streamed for people to watch. I was pleased to see some supporters in court – thanks for coming down.

Once again it was Philip Havers QC putting forward our side of the argument, supported by junior barrister Francis Hoar.
Sir James Eadie QC was representing the government (with three other barristers at his side, handing him notes and working on their case.

The whole of the first day and the morning of the second were taken up with Philip Havers presenting our case. His main argument was that the lockdown legislation was ‘ultra vires’ or outside the scope of the 1984 Public Health Act which was used to bring them in. In other words the lockdown was illegal.

He also argued that our case was not ‘academic’. When our judicial review into the lockdown was refused in July one of the reasons given was that the case was no longer valid because the lockdown regulations had been revised numerous times (and are being reimposed as we speak). However, we say that the legal challenge is absolutely vital and necessary to stop the government doing the same thing again.

Philip also explained why we believe the regulations contravened people’s human rights which are enshrined in the European Convention of Human Rights and that they were a ‘disproportionate breach’ of those rights. He told the court the lockdown regulations ‘imposed far-reaching restrictions on the lives and businesses of the entire population of England’.

Philip said: “If the court subjects these regulations to judicial scrutiny and if the government is considering a second lockdown, the government, together with parliament and the public, will have available to them what this court has to say about the proportionality of the original lockdown.”

Philip argued that the original lockdown regulations were subjected to ‘no judicial scrutiny at all.’ He said: “Over five weeks elapsed between the making of the original regulations on March 26 and being approved by affirmative resolution by the House of Commons… seven weeks with both houses. These regulations were made without any parliamentary scrutiny at all and only debated weeks later.” He said the 1984 Public Health Act did not allow for ‘house arrest on the whole population.’

My QC then directed his aim at the five tests the government relied on to consider an easing of the lockdown, arguing that these had to be satisfied regardless of the damage or harm being caused to other illnesses and jobs and so on. He told the hearing the five tests did not take into account ‘domestic violence, cancer, disease – the consequences for all those who suffer from other illnesses’. He said: “Less restrictive measures could have been adopted without causing disproportionate harm.”

The debate moved on to deaths from Covid-19. Mr Havers said: “The chance of children, mercifully, or adults under 20 dying from Covid-19 who didn’t have a pre-existing condition was and still is vanishingly small and the chance of an adult under the age of 60 dying was and still is also extremely small….To continue to keep the whole population under house arrest…to continue to ban all gatherings and so on was irrational when a more targeted approach could have been achieved.”

Lord Justice Singh asked if protecting the NHS was a good enough reason to impose the restrictions. Philip responded: “There were well over 3000 spare capacity beds… there was no realistic prospect of the NHS being overwhelmed.”

The justices then questioned whether our legal challenge was too general. They also probed into whether the legislation’s ‘reasonable excuse’ caveat meant it did not violate human rights. In other words, they were suggesting there were get-outs for people who could breach the regulations and then cite human rights law to justify why they had gone to see their grandma ? This felt like a controversial point to me. Is it realistic that the average person would think to quote human rights law to a policeman?

On the second day, Mr Havers argued the closure of schools was disproportionate. He said: “All schoolchildren with no pre-existing conditions could readily have gone back to school by July 2 and we say should arguably have gone back to school by then.”

Lord Chief Justice asked: “So you are saying because the data was showing the risks were low therefore the government should have persuaded reluctant people to restore the status quo to do so?” Philip replied: “Given the enormous harm being done to the education of every schoolchild in the country my answer is ‘yes’.”

Sir James Eadie took to his feet on the second day to put the government’s case. He said: “The structure and nature of restrictions has changed pretty fundamentally over time, reflecting the scientific understanding. The various judgements that have to be made over time and the balance governments have to strike… to keep the economy maximally open as humanly possible against the resurgence of the violence and the risk it creates.” Sir James also denied claims the coronavirus restrictions were improperly implemented.

Philip said the 1984 Public Health Act used to order the lockdown only applied to individuals and should not have been used ‘to keep everyone ‘under house arrest.’ He suggested the Government should have used the 2004 Civil Contingencies Act instead.

The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Justice Singh and Lady Justice King are now considering their judgement which could be issued any day now.
Depending on their verdict, we will have to consider our next step. It may be that we have to challenge their ruling in the Supreme Court. One thing remains certain – we will not be giving up. What’s also clear, is that this case is momentous, having brought into question significant elements of our legal system as well as the powers of our ministers.
In the meantime, we must continue to gather as much support as we can.
Please continue to spread our message, by sharing our updates, our cause and the link to this Crowdjustice fund.
Together, we will Keep Britain Free.
Simon.


UPDATE 20 Oct: Sir Lindsay Hoyle has applied to intervene in a legal fight brought by Simon Dolan and Cripps Barn Group against the Government’s lockdown restrictions. Hoyle, the Speaker of the House of Commons says he will intervene in the case because it raises issues of ‘constitutional importance’.
By 21 Oct £372,920 (of £425,000) are pledged.

6) Portuguese Court Rules PCR Tests “Unreliable” & Quarantines “Unlawful”

11 November: “An appeals court in Portugal has ruled that the PCR process is not a reliable test for Sars-Cov-2, and therefore any enforced quarantine based on those test results is unlawful.
Further, the ruling suggested that any forced quarantine applied to healthy people could be a violation of their fundamental right to liberty.
“Most importantly, the judges ruled that a single positive PCR test cannot be used as an effective diagnosis of infection.”
“The ruling goes on to conclude that, based on the science they read, any PCR test using over 25 cycles is totally unreliable.”

The UK seems to use 40 amplifications [see the PCR Test chapter]

7) Legal action launched over missing three BILLION Tories spent on private Coronavirus contracts

“Three cross-party MPs and the Good Law Project, a non-profit-making organisation, have launched legal action against the Government over its failure to disclose details of its spending on contracts related to the pandemic.”
“Green MP Caroline Lucas, Labour’s Debbie Abrahams and Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran have filed a judicial review against the Government for breaching the law and its own guidance and argue that there are mounting concerns over the Government’s coronavirus procurement processes.”
at least £11 billion worth of contracts have been awarded by the department since April, related predominantly to coronavirus, new analysis by Tussell shows that over £3 billion worth of these contracts have not been made public.”
Jolyon Maugham QC, director of Good Law Project said:
“Huge sums of public money have been awarded to companies with no discernible expertise. Sometimes the main qualification seems to be a political connection with key Government figures. And I have seen evidence that Government is sometimes paying more to buy the same product from those with political connections.” [London Economic, 11 October]

8) Emergency Grand Jury for Natural Law

URGENT MESSAGE DO NOT IGNORE SHARE VIRAL
Greetings Everyone, we have formed an Emergency Grand Jury for Natural Law from Public Health & Justice along with 32 Judges from around the world who are experts & together we have launched an International Tribunal for Emergency Injunctions & we have served Indictments for Crimes Against Humanity To Ban:
1) Forced Vaccinations,
2) Unlawful Lockdowns
3) The Criminal Misuse
4) Fraudulent Tests on Healthy People
5) The Criminal misuse of 5G Technologies
6) Economic Terrorism
7) Forcing people into poverty.

Please find links of our Global Indictments here: www.peaceinspace.org

As many of you may already know, rogue highly corrupt usurpers who have now taken over all our public offices, departments & positions of power are misusing COVID 19 as an excuse to strip ‘We The People’ of our God given inalienable Rights & Freedoms.

The are grossly abusing the powers given to them by ‘We The People’

Those in positions of Government & Mainstream Media are Acting as a Corrupt Corporations to facilitate their own special interests & no longer honoring the Will of ‘We The People’

In Law this is an ABUSE OF POWER called a Breach of ULTRA VIRES LAWS meaning ‘They have gone BEYOND THE SCOPE OF POWERS’ That ‘We The People’ have given them.

We have arrived at a extremely dangerous situation whereby they are now acting criminally & are planning to roll out FORCED mass vaccinations upon HEALTHY PEOPLE in the UK and worldwide which they are FULLY AWARE are likely to at worst KILL healthy people, or at best likely to PARALYSE MILLIONS /BILLIONS entirely on the basis FALSE science & data.

The company behind the vaccines called Pfizer were already sued by Nigeria in 2013, for harming countless Nigerian victims with their contaminated Testing Kits & now this very same company, (who should have been shut down years ago) are seeking to do the same thing again by administering unsafe deadly vaccines in the UK & all around the rest of the world. They MUST be immediately STOPPED! But we need unified MASS ACTION TO BE SUCCESSFUL.

In addition, there is evidence that 490.000 children were paralyzed in India by Bill Gates’s vaccines but again, instead of this man being arrested & stopped from causing further harm, on the 10th of November 2020 we are told that Boris Johnson had a meeting with Gates to roll out these same lethal unregistered unlicensed UNLAWFUL Deadly vaccines & force them upon the British public in the coming next 10 days.

AS THIS IS A CRITICAL STATE OF EMERGENCY – WE ARE CALLING FOR UNIFIED WORLDWIDE ACTION THAT REQUIRES EVERYONES INPUT TO HELP US TO IMMEDIATELY STOP THEM BY

Learn the BASICS of Common Law, what to say and do – and what not. The Truth will set you free. Knowledge is power.
Once you see through the system, you can laugh about it – a very health boosting way to overcome fear.

11) Law Of The Land: Magna Carta

In case you are interested, below is some introductory information about the Magna Carta. The following paragraphs are from GreenMedInfo.com The Great Reset:
The 1215 Magna Carta was a treaty between the Barons and the King. It was subsequently re-issued into Statute law in 1297 by King Edward I, proclaiming in the introductory text, which remains the law of the land, that:

“these Liberties following, to be kept in our Kingdom of England for ever.”

And in Article 1 that “We have granted also, and given to all the Freemen of our Realm, for Us and our Heirs for ever, these Liberties under-written, to have and to hold to them and their Heirs, of Us and our Heirs for ever.”

Magna Carta (1297) Article 29 (XXIX) “Imprisonment, &c. contrary to Law. Administration of Justice.” states that: “NO Freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or be disseised of his Freehold, or Liberties, or free Customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any other wise destroyed; nor will We not pass upon him, nor deal with him [condemn him,] but by lawful judgment of his Peers, or by the Law of the Land. We will sell to no man, we will not deny or defer to any man either Justice or Right.”

Article 29 of the Magna Carta (1297) remains the law of the land in the United Kingdom and Crown Dependencies and its principles remain the foundation of all common law countries. It was confirmed to be retained in the Republic of Ireland by the Statute Revision Act (2007) and the whole of Ireland also has its own Magna Carta Hiberniae (1216). It arguably remains law in Canada and Australia and remains on the statute book in New Zealand. The United States Constitution is in compliance with Chapter 29 of the Magna Carta.

The English Bill of Rights goes further, making it unconstitutional for the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand to be ruled by a foreign power, which places a cloud over the UK’s previous membership of the European Union, it states:

“I doe declare That noe Forreigne Prince Person Prelate, State or Potentate hath or ought to have any Jurisdiction Power Superiority Preeminence or Authoritie Ecclesiasticall or Spirituall within this Realme Soe helpe me God.”

“England appears to be the rock on which the revolutionary waves split and disperse and which starves the coming society even in the womb.” Karl Marx, (Cologne, December 31, 1848)

the Liberty of Subjects Act (1354) and Observance of Due Process Act (1368) signed into law by King Edward III, both of which remain law in the UK today. They further reinforce protection of general liberties and due process. In particular, and relevant to Article 29 of the UN Declaration and all UN treaties that pretend to be able to suspend liberty and due process, the 1368 Observance of Due Process Act made Constitutional the ancient Saxon custom, that:

“if any Thing from henceforth be done to the contrary (of due process of law), it shall be void in the Law, and holden for Error”.

(Decline a vaccine, mask or situation that you felt coerced to be in)

Dear Councillor,
with local Councils having more powers, they also have more responsibility – and accountability. We urge our Council to follow the independent science, rather than the government, to avoid illness and deaths especially among the younger population.
We demand the immediate and permanent cessation of all lockdown plans.
There is no risk following Sweden’s approach to the pandemic, which has had less deaths without lockdown, and the fatalities currently show no sign of any “second wave”.

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being
and not merely the absence of disease or other physical impairment
[WHO]
“Ramping up heavy-handed enforcement of rules will do more harm than good” and: “Hiring undercover officers to spy on people is an insult to the efforts communities across the country have made to look after and protect each other during the pandemic.” [libertyhumanrights.org.uk]
Professor Carl Heneghan, the director of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine at Oxford University, said he was “deeply concerned” by the selection of data which were not based on the current reality.[Telegraph, 1 Nov]
“This is not the first time that we’ve had misleading forecasts. The first responsibility of the scientific advisers to the Government is to give the truth to the public and not to cherry-pick the data. This is a fairly major error on their part” [David Davis, former Brexit secretary, Telegraph, 1 Nov]
“We appeal to all world leaders: stop using lockdown as your primary control method.
” [WHO]
“Lockdown was a monumental disaster on a global scale. The cure was worse than the disease.” [Prof. Mark Woodhouse, Express]
“Is this serious enough to warrant putting most of our population into house imprisonment, wrecking our economy for an indefinite period, destroying businesses that honest and hardworking people have taken years to build up, saddling future generations with debt, depression, stress, heart attacks, suicides and unbelievable distress inflicted on millions of people who are not especially vulnerable, and will suffer only mild symptoms or none at all?” [former Supreme Court Judge , Lord John Sumption in a BBC interviw]

Every council member is liable for crimes against the people, if the council measures lead to the destruction of people’s livelihoods and lives, by spreading fear and restriction of basic human rights – all based on unreliable and unsuitable “positive” pcr test results, questionable ‘R’ number models, scandal ridden ‘track & trace’ (handled by a company who also runs the UK prisons) and computer model predictions by industry biassed scientists and institutions (see quotes above).

We anticipate that governments and their advisers authorising lockdowns will be taken to court for ‘Crimes against Humanity’ and other charges.
The legal basis for enforcing heavy handed measures contravening people’s human rights and civil liberties will be questioned, and the Council will also be taken to account for any wrongdoing.

Worries about losing work or contact with loved ones creates stress, weakens the immune system and will result in unnecessary illness and deaths. In case of lockdown and further restrictions of public services, we expect the Council to offer us a tax reduction.

Controlling viruses is bound to fail; controlling people causes more harm than good and leaves the feeling that the Council acts AGAINST the people. Our Council should support health, social and mental wellbeing of everyone, based on stability of jobs and work conditions. and freedom of choice, creativity, social contacts.
Blocking parts of the local economy, while increasing expenditure on “virus protection” measures will make it difficult to balance the books.

The increase of current death rates in England is normal for November, so there is no need for draconian measures.
Details with an analysis of the lockdown and collateral damage, misleading covid-19 death certificates, unscientific and inappropriate use of pcr tests are listed below.
(text below copied from WorldDoctorsAlliance.com, published in October).
They also show that we have safe and effective covid-19 treatments and prevention.

Open Letter text from WorldDoctorsAlliance.com:

OPEN LETTER TO ALL THE CITIZENS OF THE WORLD AND ALL THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE WORLD

INTRODUCTION

We were told initially that the premise for lockdown was to ‘flatten the curve’ and therefore protect the NHS from being overwhelmed.

It is clear that at no point was the National Health Service (NHS) in any danger of being overwhelmed, and since May 2020 covid wards have been largely empty; and crucially the death toll from covid has remained extremely low.

We now have hundreds of thousands of so-called ‘cases’, ‘infections’ and ‘positive tests’ but hardly any sick people. Recall that four fifths (80%) of ‘infections’ are asymptomatic (1) Covid wards have been by and large empty throughout June, July, August and September 2020. Most importantly covid deaths are at an all-time low. It is clear that these ‘cases’ are in fact not ‘cases’ but rather they are normal healthy people.

So-called asymptomatic cases have never in the history of respiratory disease been the driver for spread of infection. Rather it is symptomatic people who spread respiratory infections – not asymptomatic people.(2)

It is also abundantly clear that the ‘pandemic’ is basically over and has been since June 2020. (3)

We have very highly likely reached herd immunity and therefore have no need for a vaccine.

We have safe and very effective treatments and preventative treatments for covid, we therefore call for an immediate end to all lockdown measures, social distancing, mask wearing, testing of healthy individuals, track and trace, immunity passports, the vaccination program and so on.

There has been a catalogue of unscientific, non-sensical policies enacted which infringe our inalienable rights, such as – freedom of movement, freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. These draconian totalitarian measures must never be repeated.

LOCKDOWN

  • Covid has proved less deadly than previous influenza seasons – There were 50,100 flu deaths from December 2017 to March 2018 in England and Wales. There were 80,000 flu deaths in 1969. To date we have circa 42,000 covid related deaths in the UK.
  • We have never locked down society for a respiratory virus before.
  • The basis for lockdown was a mathematical model by Professor Neil Ferguson. His modelling which predicted half a million deaths in the UK has been roundly condemned as being not fit for purpose. His estimated death figures were clearly wrong by a factor of 10 or 12 times. (1)
  • Professor Ferguson’s modelling was not even peer reviewed before being acted upon by several nations. Eminent epidemiologists such as Professor Gupta from Oxford University were ignored, they estimated the death count would be far lower in the UK.
  • Professor Ferguson has a long track record of woeful modelling he was entirely wrong about sars, mers, mad cow’s disease (CJD), and swine flu. Why did the world listen to him again? (2)
  • Countries which did not lock down Sweden, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and Belarus have all done significantly better than us in terms of percentage of population deaths. They also have herd immunity and intact economies.
  • Lockdown did not save lives, and this has been published in the Lancet ‘….in our analysis, full lockdowns and wide-spread COVID-19 testing were not associated with reductions in the number of critical cases or overall mortality.’ (3)
  • The vast majority of deaths occurred in elderly and very elderly people
  • The vast majority of deaths occurred in people with pre-existing serious health issues such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes etc
  • Covid poses virtually zero risk to the under 45’s who have more chance of being struck by lightning than dying from covid.
  • Covid poses a very small risk for healthy under 60 year olds who have a greater chance of accidental drowning than dying from covid.
  • The entire nation was essentially placed under house arrest. We have never isolated the healthy before.
  • Isolating the sick and those who are immunocompromised makes sense. Isolating the healthy has hampered the establishment of herd immunity and makes no sense.
  • To put it into perspective we had 115,000 smoking related deaths in the UK in 2015 compared to the 42,000 deaths from covid.
  • We usually have around 600,000 deaths every year in the UK, roughly 1600 deaths per day.

COLLATERAL DAMAGE THE CURE IS WORSE THAN THE VIRUS

  • Placing the public under virtual house arrest has caused untold damage to both physical and mental health.(1)
  • Ventilating patients instead of oxygenating patients proved to be a deadly policy and an unwarranted failure. Ventilation resulted in many unnecessary deaths. (2)
  • Sending infected people from hospitals to care homes placed the elderly and frail under unnecessary risk and resulted in many unnecessary deaths. (3)
  • Blanket Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders were imposed on thousands of people without their consent nor the consent of their families – this is both unlawful and immoral and lead to unnecessary deaths in care homes. (4)
  • Hospitals became essentially ‘covid only’ centres vast numbers of patients were wilfully neglected, resulting in many thousands of unnecessary deaths. (5)
  • The government’s own report estimates that some two hundred thousand (200,000) people will die as a direct result of lockdown – not the virus. Hospitals being closed, suicide and poverty will result in more deaths than the virus. (6)
  • The cure is worse than the disease!

DEATH CERTIFICATES (1)

  • The majority of people who died had significant comorbidities, such as Alzheimer’s, cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
  • Counting death certificates with a ‘mention’ of covid as being a death caused by covid is a gross misrepresentation of the facts and has vastly over exaggerated the death toll.
  • The rules for the signing of death certificates have been changed solely for covid by the Coronavirus 2020 Act.
  • Doctors do not even need to have physically seen the patient in order to sign death certificates.
  • The Act has removed the need for a confirmatory medical certificate for cremations.
  • Autopsies have virtually been banned, no doubt leading to misdiagnosis of the true cause of deaths; and also reducing our understanding of the disease itself.
  • Worse still, care home staff who largely have no medical training are able to give a statement as to the cause of death.
  • Covid was put on death certificates merely on the ‘suspicion’ of people having covid. This may well be unlawful, since it is a crime to falsify death certificates.
  • People who die within 28 days of a positive pcr test are deemed to have died from covid, even if they die in a car crash or from a heart attack; clearly over inflating the death toll (2)

ECONOMIC RUIN

  • Reports now estimate that as many as six and a half million (6,500,000) people in the UK will lose their jobs as a result of lockdown. (1)
  • It is well known that poverty directly adversely affects health, we can expect to see many people suffering with poor health and resulting in many premature deaths, as a direct result of lockdown.

CENSORSHIP

  • Government have acted maliciously in censoring doctors, nurses and NHS staff. The people have the perfect right to hear what is going on in hospitals, and the medical profession have a duty to look after the public and to reassure them. (1)
  • The medical profession have not been allowed to let the public know that covid wards have been empty for months, nor that covid deaths have reached an all-time low for months, and this has unnecessarily added to the public’s distress and anxiety.
  • Doctors and scientists with views that differ from the government narrative have had their videos and articles removed from the internet

TESTING – FALSE POSITIVES

  • PCR tests cannot be verified for accuracy as there is no ‘gold standard’ against which to check them. The virus has not been purified. (1)
  • PCR tests cannot detect viral loads and are prone to false positives. (2)
  • A positive PCR test does not mean that an individual is infected nor infective. (3)
  • In fact approximately 90% of the PCR positive ‘cases’ are false positives. We therefore have no second wave and no pandemic. (4 , 5)
  • The government’s report estimates a false positive rate of between 0.8 to 4.0 % using data from other viral infections – not from covid (6)
  • Viral fragments may remain in people’s bodies for several weeks following recovery from infection. (7)
  • The crisis will never end if we are waiting for zero positive tests. Everyone has probably had a cold caused by a coronavirus and will likely have a few viral fragments matching those of the cousin SARS-CoV-2 virus (8)
  • Testing healthy asymptomatic individuals is non-sensical, unscientific and a colossal waste of money. The governments moon shot daily testing program will cost £100 Billion roughly two thirds of the annual NHS budget.
  • Antibody testing is not the gold standard as many people have T-cell immunity, and antibodies may not circulate following recovery from infection.

HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE

  • The controversial drug Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) has been unfairly smeared, by the WHO, CDC, NIH and the media.
  • However HCQ has very firm support from, amongst others: Professor Harvey Risch epidemiologist from Yale, The American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), American Frontline Doctors, the Henry Ford Health System and Professor Didier Raoult microbiologist and infectious disease specialist – to name but a few. (1)
  • The Lancet was even forced to retract a study on HCQ after it was revealed by the Guardian newspaper that they had been completely fabricated and written by a sci-fi writer and a porn star. Even following this astounding revelation HCQ was still banned in most countries. (2)
  • HCQ according to AAPS has a ninety per cent (90%) cure rate when given early and alongside zinc (3)
  • HCQ is safer than many over the counter drugs such as aspirin, Benadryl and Tylenol.
  • The AAPS also point out that there has never been a vaccine as safe as HCQ. (4)
  • HCQ has been licensed for over sixty years and has been safely used by billions of people worldwide. There is a very small risk of arrythmia which is easily monitored.
  • Why was HCQ banned then? Could it be that there are no huge profits to be made from this out-of-patent drug?
  • HCQ was used to great effect in the Sars1 outbreak of 2005 (5)
  • In short had HCQ been available then there would not have been a pandemic !

PREVENTION

  • Preventative measures such as hydroxychloroquine or vitamins D, C and zinc should have been recommended for the public. (1)
  • Early calcifediol (25-hydroxyvitamin D) treatment to hospitalized COVID-19 patients significantly reduced intensive care unit admissions (2)
  • Vit D reduces the severity of covid. (2,3)
  • Voluntary isolation of the frail – should they so choose; in combination with preventative measures would have been a far better strategy. The rest of society could and should have continued as normal.

VACCINE

  • A rushed vaccine is clearly not in the public’s best interest
  • Indemnifying vaccine manufacturers against all liability is also clearly not in the public’s best interest

CONFLICTS OF INTEREST

  • Chief Scientific Officer Sir Patrick Vallance has £600,000 worth of shares in GSK Glaxo Smith Klein. He has in recent years sold £5 million of shares in GSK which he ‘earned’ whilst chief of GSK (1)
  • Sir Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer UK, accepted over £30 million in funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation to study malaria vaccines. (2)
  • It has become clear that members of SAGE, Public Health England (PHE), World Health Organisation (WHO), Centre for Disease Control (CDC), National institute for Health (NIH) etc have many conflicts of interests. They all accept very large ‘donations’ from the pharmaceutical and vaccine industry. These conflicts of interests may well have effectively corrupted their integrity. (3)
  • It is also clear that governments are heavily lobbied by the pharmaceutical industry and the vaccine industry, again this may have compromised their integrity. (4)

CUI BONO? WHO BENEFITS?

  • Vaccine manufacturers will make trillions from this, as will track and trace manufacturers, and the pharmaceutical industry stand to make trillions from covid testing.
  • Prime minister Boris Johnson announced the new ‘moon shot’ testing will cost £100 Billion, approximately two thirds of the annual NHS budget.
  • Surely these vast sums would be far better spent on treating all of the neglected patients who have been wilfully neglected during lockdown and who now face huge waiting lists.

CONCLUSIONS

We have effective and safe treatments and preventative medications for covid, therefore there is no need for any lockdown restrictions and associated measures. The pandemic is essentially over as can be seen by the consistent low death rate and hospital admissions over the past four months.

We demand the immediate and permanent ceasing of all lockdown measures.

Lockdowns do not save lives, that is why they have never been used before. Civil liberties and fundamental freedoms have been unnecessarily removed from the public and this must never happen again.

Preventative measures such as Hydroxychloroquine, vitamin C, Vitamin D and zinc must be made readily available to the public.

Isolation must be voluntary. People are perfectly capable of making their own assessment of the risks and must be free to go about their lives as they so choose. People must have the right to choose whether to isolate or not.

Likewise, businesses must have the right to remain open if they so choose.

We demand that doctors, nurses, scientists and healthcare professionals must be permitted free speech and never be censored again.

Professor Mark Woolhouse epidemiologist and specialist in infectious diseases, Edinburgh University Member of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviours, that advises the Government stated that

‘…Lockdown was a monumental disaster on a global scale. The cure was worse than the disease.’

I never want to see national lockdown again. It was always a temporary measure that simply delayed the stage of the epidemic we see now. It was never going to change anything fundamentally, however low we drove down the number of cases,’

We absolutely should never return to a position where children cannot play or go to school.’

I believe the harm lockdown is doing to our education, health care access, and broader aspects of our economy and society will turn out to be at least as great as the harm done by Covid-19.’(1)

The World Doctors Alliance agree fully with Prof Woolhouse’s assertions, he is right!
We must never lockdown again! NB the term ‘covid’ has been used to represent Sars-CoV-2 and Covid-19

Below is a road map how to steer healthy through the next virus season, listing the logical changes we need to make after we analysed all we’ve got wrong so far.

Health is a state of complete physical, mental
and social well-being and not merely the absence
of disease or other physical impairment [WHO]

HERE is a video by Canadian doctors, explaining in less than 12 minutes why we do NOT need to fear SARS-CoV-2 and can have more trust in our immune system:

Canadian doctors from CanadaHealthAlliance.org created this short video: bitchute.com/video/nQgq0BxXfZ4f/

In case of doubt or confusion: don’t do anything which could make you ill, and follow the INDEPENDENT science, and double check dependent government advisers for industry bias.
While the “cases” go up, people don’t die any more from covid-19.

Cases are currently 90% false positives, the virus has mutated, and as with SARS or MERS or any yearly flu, the Herd Immunity Threshold HIT was reached in April.
We can safely assume there will be no “second wave” (unless people make themselves ill by not looking after their immune system). Read more below.

Dr. Mike Yeadon, Pfizer’s former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy & Respiratory, explains everything on rumble.com/vbfcsj-dr.-mike-yeadon-pfizers-former-vice-president-and-chief-scie ntist-for-aller.html

The Daily Mail UK reports on 22 Nov: Covid UK: Facts about the risks, the death rate, and NHS capacity: “the number of Covid-19 deaths is significantly lower than the peak back in April. Latest ONS estimate shows that in the week ending November 14, new infections were already levelling off “

There will be no 2nd wave of Coronavirus.
There is no research literature
that underscores the belief in a second wave
.
[Dr Mike Yeadon,
former chief scientific adviser of Pfizer]

Speaking on the Julia Hartley-Brewer breakfast show on Talk Radio, Dr Mike Yeadon, former chief scientific adviser of Pfizer Pharmaceuticals (allergy and respiratory research department), has predicted there will be no 2nd wave of Coronavirus. He points out, that the previous SARS and MERS viruses only came once, no second wave. He also said the current pcr testing brings up 90% false positives. He said he was “going to challenge the Government to cite the research literature that underscores their belief in a second wave… such literature does not exist.” If he is right then the actions of the government will be proved to be unnecessary.

cases versus deaths Spain and UK
“Spain is ahead of the UK”, showing many (mostly asymptomatic and false) positive “cases” – and no deaths. There is NOTHING to panic about.
Spain is some weeks ahead of the UK and shows a HUGE spike of so called “cases”, but no more deaths than seasonal. source: worldometers
UK on 21 October: the so called “cases” are 4x higher than during the April peak
But the deaths are 5x lower (slight number increase as usuallyin autumn)
[source: worldometers.info

It can however be expected, that the huge backlog of missed hospital appointments due to the first lockdown will lead to an increase in hospital admissions. The virus fear stress will result in lowered immunity and increased illness in the population.
As a positive pcr test result at the (mandatory) test at hospital admissions will override other causes of death if the patient should die within 28 days after being tested positive, there is a guearanteed number of covid deaths in the future. See more in the previous article in the Covid Deaths Statistics chapter.

Coronaviruses normally peak from January to March in the northern hemisphere
(see also Evidence that Coronavirus Lockdown was not necessary).

It is a well-known fact that in every “flu wave”, 7-15% of acute respiratory illnesses (ARI) come along with coronaviruses (Glasgow study) with no clinical significance. It is just another name for acute respiratory illnesses (ARI), which as every year put 30% to 70% of all people in our countries more or less out of action for a week or two every winter.
According to a prospective article ARI-virus monitoring in Glasgow from 2005 to 2013, the most common pathogens of acute respiratory diseases were: 1. rhinoviruses, 2. influenza A viruses, 3. influenza B viruses, 4. RS viruses and 5. coronaviruses.”

If we remove any of these viruses, other pathogens will take the place.[www.wodarg.com].
COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2) can cause a cytokine storm of overzealous immune responses, that generate so much cytokine secretion (hypercytokinesis), that it spills over into the lungs.

This video clearly explains everything: data, statistics, virus seasons and why the post pandemic should be called endemic. Link: youtu.be/7wifZ9oBrZE

Common cold could be protecting you from Covid-19:
You may have cursed that cold you had last winter—but it could be protecting you against Covid-19.
Your immune response may have been just a dress rehearsal for the more virulent SARS-COV-2 virus that causes Covid-19. A cold, another coronas virus, produces memory cells—known as B cells—that know how to respond if you encounter the Covid virus.
People recovering from Covid-19 have a pre-existing pool of memory B cells that rapidly produce antibodies, say researchers from the University of Rochester Medical Center. Memory B cells can detect pathogens and create antibodies to destroy them.
The protection is long-lasting and may even protect you for the rest of your life. Once infected by a virus, another from the same family will trigger a much faster response and could even clear an infection before it takes hold.
The fact that most of us have had a cold could also explain why so many people with Covid-19 are asymptomatic, that is, have no symptoms.
The researchers analysed blood samples from 26 people recovering from mild to moderate Covid-19 and compared them with 21 healthy donors whose samples had been collected up to 10 years ago. They measured levels of memory B cells and antibodies that target proteins that are common in all coronaviruses, such as Covid, SARS, MERS, and the common cold. [from the original study]

The best support for our immune system is:
• do everything that is good for you and your immune system
• don’t do anything which is bad for your health

The worldometer statistic shows, (7 October), that 96+% of ‘cases’ have recovered from COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2 and the deaths with coronavirus keep dropping. Keep in mind, that about 19 out of 20 deaths were caused by underlying conditions.
The UK withholds the huge number of recovered cases.

Here is a VERY good video, clearly explaining the virus statistics, why people die or not, and how to see all in context:

Freedom not Lockdown to stay Healthy

WHO: we appeal to all world leaders:
stop using lockdown as your primary control method.
The only thing lockdowns achieved was poverty.
[Dr. David Nabarro, 11 October 2020]

News.com.au reports on 11 Oct: WHO: “we really do appeal to all world leaders: stop using lockdown as your primary control method.
Develop better systems for doing it. Work together and learn from each other.
Dr. David Nabarro also claimed that the only thing lockdowns achieved was poverty – with no mention of the potential lives saved.
“we may well have a doubling of world poverty by next year. We may well have at least a doubling of child malnutrition.”
Experience shows: you can’t control a virus – but the population.

A number of health experts from all over the world came together calling for an end to coronavirus lockdowns earlier this week.
They created a petition, called the Great Barrington Declaration,
which said that lockdowns were doing “irreparable damage.”
[ By 11 October, the Great Barrington Declaration, was signed by
7,447 Medical & Public Health Scientists,
17,087 Medical Practitioners and
259,458 general public ]

The WorldDoctorsAlliance.com takes a more radical approach
and had 7487 signatories by 17 October.

In the previous article “We’ve got it all wrong fighting the virus” we learned that lockdown loneliness making us ill and lockdown kills.

Long periods of lockdown could weaken the immune system and leave people more vulnerable to dangerous viruses and pandemics”, Oxford epidemiologist Prof Sunetra Gupta warns. Intense social distancing could leave people unexposed to germs and not develop defences against new viruses. She added that ‘if we return to the point where we have no exposure’ society would be ‘like clumps of trees waiting to be set ablaze‘. ”

Natural Immunity & T Cell Memory

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#natural-immunity – updated 18 January 2021

Summary:
we have robust, broad and highly functional memory T cell responses preventing recurrent episodes of severe COVID-19 or other coronavirus mutations.
They identify and destroy infected cells and inform B cells about how to craft new virus-targeting antibodies.
T cell memory lasts at least 17 years, possibly life long.

Covid infection shown to provide as much immunity as vaccines [Financial Times, 14 January 2021]
People who have already contracted coronavirus are as protected against reinfection as those who have received the best Covid-19 vaccines, according to a survey of 20,000 UK healthcare workers, the largest study in the world so far. Public Health England regularly tested two matched groups of volunteers between June and November — 6,000 health workers who had previously been infected with coronavirus and 14,000 who had not.
A comparison of infections in the two groups, described in preliminary results released on Thursday, found that prior infection provided at least 83 per cent protection against reinfection.
It gave better than 94 per cent protection against symptomatic Covid-19, matching the figures for the most effective Covid-19 vaccines.
Natural infection looks as good as a vaccine, which is very good news for the population” Susan Hopkins, PHE senior medical adviser said.
People who had recovered from Covid-19 were less likely to transmit the virus to others unknowingly, because natural infection appeared to provide about 75 per cent protection against asymptomatic reinfection.
Eleanor Riley, professor of virology at the University of Edinburgh, said: “If you believe you already had the disease and are protected, you can be reassured it is highly unlikely you will develop severe infection”
[STUDY ARTICLE preprint 18 Dec 2020:
SIREN protocol: Impact of detectable anti-SARS-CoV-2 on the subsequent incidence of COVID-19 in 100,000 healthcare workers: do antibody positive healthcare workers have less reinfection than antibody negative healthcare workers?“]

After being infected with coronavirus, people become immune.
“A number of reported cases of coronavirus patients relapsing after overcoming the disease were actually due to testing failures, South Korean scientists say… the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test results for the suspected relapsed patients were false positives. Researchers at the South Korean centre for disease control and prevention (CDC) now say it is impossible for the COVID-19 virus to reactivate in human bodies. The CDC added that unlike other viruses,… the coronavirus stays outside of the host cell’s nucleus.”
“This means it does not cause chronic infection or recurrence,” explained Dr Oh Myoung-don, the head of the South Korea’s CDC committee. 01/05/2020

“A government cannot stop a virus.
What stops a virus is natural immunity.
It’s impossible to stop a virus by government decree.”
[Professor Yoram Lass, former Israeli Health Ministry chief]

On 28 August Neoscope reports: DOCTORS CONFIRM FOR FIRST TIME THAT PATIENT CAUGHT COVID TWICE: A new study published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases today reports that a 33-year-old man showed mild symptoms the first time he was infected, and no symptoms the second time. The patient was infected by two genetically different strains of the coronavirus. “Our results prove that his second infection is caused by a new virus that he acquired recently rather than prolonged viral shedding,” Kelvin Kai-Wang To, clinical microbiologist at the University of Hong Kong, said in the statement. “This is a textbook example of how immunity should work,” Yale School of Medicine professor Akiko Iwasaki, wrote in a Monday tweet. “While immunity was not enough to block reinfection, it protected the person from disease.”

We now have evidence that everyone
develops long-term coronavirus immunity after infection

The study: “Robust T cell immunity in convalescent individuals with asymptomatic or mild COVID-19” (14 August)
“SARS-CoV-2-specific T cells were detectable in antibody-seronegative exposed family members and convalescent individuals with a history of asymptomatic and mild COVID-19. Our collective dataset shows that SARS-CoV-2 elicits robust, broad and highly functional memory T cell responses, suggesting that natural exposure or infection may prevent recurrent episodes of severe COVID-19″.

The “Business Insider” comments on this: “The new finding is strong evidence that all patients likely develop long-term immunity
Memory T cells are an especially key type, since they identify and destroy infected cells and inform B cells about how to craft new virus-targeting antibodies. They can stick around for years, while antibody levels drop following an infection.”

The New York Times reports on 16 August: Scientists See Signs of Lasting Immunity to Covid-19, Even After Mild Infections
“Scientists who have been monitoring immune responses to the virus are now starting to see encouraging signs of strong, lasting immunity, even in people who developed only mild symptoms of Covid-19, a flurry of new studies suggests. Disease-fighting antibodies, as well as immune cells called B cells and T cells that are capable of recognizing the virus, appear to persist months after infections have resolved… the body retains a battalion of longer-lived B cells that can churn out virus-fighting antibodies en masse, should they prove useful again.”

The best times to gain immunity for coronavirus
are summer or autumn, before the flu season.
This way you do not become a burden
for the NHS hospitals
AND you become a protector of the vulnerable
by being immune in the winter.

Immunological research has revealed that serological (i.e. blood) antibody studies detect at most 20% of infections, as most people neutralize the coronavirus with their mucosal or cellular immune system without even needing to develop (permanent) antibodies in the blood

This pie chart explains the findings :
no antibodies in the blood, but immunity
(screeenshot from an amazing scientific immunity lecture by Creon Levit, Chief Scientist of Planet Labs (22 June)
The percentage of an unexposed population is certain to be

60% of people are naturally RESISTANT to SARS-COV2.
Sars-Cov-2-specific antibodies only appear in the most severe cases, about 1 out of 5.
That means: Sars-Cov-2 is five times less deadly than currently assumed [off-guardian.org/2020/06/12/study-80] – and:
the number of people who have gained immunity is five times higher than positive blood test results show.

THIS explains, why the Immunity Threshold HIT (see chapter below) causing the DECREASE of infections after the peak period only needs 10 – 20% of the population in addition to the 50+% who are already ‘naturally’ resistant.

A cold, another coronas virus, produces memory cells—known as B cells—that know how to respond if you encounter the Covid virus.
People recovering from Covid-19 have a pre-existing pool of memory B cells that rapidly produce antibodies. Memory B cells can detect pathogens and create antibodies to destroy them.

The protection is long-lasting and may even protect you for the rest of your life. Once infected by a virus, another from the same family will trigger a much faster response and could even clear an infection before it takes hold.

Herd Immunity Threshold ‘HIT’

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#HIT – updated 15 April 2021

So it seems Britain has reached the herd immunity, and we do not need to fear any more virus transmissions nor outbreaks, as “the virus” has no chance to go rampant any more:

Modelling by University College London (UCL) suggests that 73.4 per cent of the population will have protection against Covid by April 12, 2021 – by Mail Online

The Herd Immunity Threshold (HIT) defines the percentage of the population that needs to be immune to reverse epidemic growth and prevent future waves.
medRxiv published an article on 21 May 2020, stating:
“While herd immunity is expected to require 60-70% of a homogeneous population to be immune given an R0 between 2.5 and 3, these percentages drop to the range 10-20% for CVs between 2 and 4.”

Herd Immunity Threshold (HIT)
for SARS-CoV-2 transmission
in heterogeneous populations

can be as low as 10-20%

This suggests, we don’t need to panic to just get over any next virus wave naturally by letting the virus come and go in the usual bell-shaped curve.

Like other respiratotry diseases, including the 2003 SARS epidemic, the virus remains only about two months in any given population, yet the peak incidence and the lethality can vary.

Please notice: Dr. Knut Wittkowski does not claim
there would be no casualties at all.

Any temporary advantage from mitigation comes at the expense of lower population immunity and higher cumulative deaths
“It is herd immunity that stops the spread of an infectious disease, so in general, one would want to let the epidemic initially run its natural course (or even accelerate it, as people have traditionally done with “measles parties”) to build immunity as fast as possible” [Dr. Wittkowski, 28 March 2020, from: researchgate.net]

Fig 1: SIR Model of SARS. Number of susceptible (blue), infectious (red), and resistant (green) people after a population of 10,000,000 susceptible people is exposed to 20 subjects infected carrying a novel virus. Assumptions: R0 =2.2, infectious period = 7 days
Covid recovered cases versus deaths in the US in %
This worldometer graph confirms the SIR Model

The % rate of deaths (orange line) is going down to 6% in the US, while the recovered / discharged from hospital cases (green line) goes up to 94%, confirming the herd immunity threshold model explained above. Source:
worldometer 4 Aug 2020
The UK has been hiding the recovered cases number.

When we use a different model, the situation looks MUCH better and is more likely to reflect reality.
The study led by Dr Gabriela Gomes, a mathematician at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and the University of Strathclyde.
If the virus spreads more rampantly among the most socially active group, the level of immunity they build up could protect people in the less active groups.

Natural herd immunity against Covid-19 could develop from just 10% of the population getting infected, not the 60%
predicted from a vaccine”

The ‘herd immunity threshold’ (HIT) can be estimated from the basic reproduction rate of the epidemic, R0 – a measure of how many people, on average, each infected individual infects. Standard simple compartmental models of epidemic growth imply that the HIT equals {1 – 1/R0}. Once the HIT is passed, the rate of new infections starts to decline, which should ensure that health systems will not thereafter be overwhelmed and makes it more practicable to take steps to eliminate the disease.
A recent paper (Gomes et al.[7]) shows that variation between individuals in their susceptibility to infection and their propensity to infect others can cause the HIT to be much lower than it is in a homogeneous population.
The Swedish public health authority estimated that 17% of the Stockholm population would have been infected by 11 April, rising to 25% by 1 May 2020.[5] Yet recorded new cases had stopped increasing by 11 April, as had net hospital admissions,[6] and both measures have fallen significantly since. That pattern indicates that the HIT had been reached by 11April, at which point only 17% of the population appear to have been infected.
[Why herd immunity to COVID-19 is reached much earlier than thought]

Dr. Scott W. Atlas, senior fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution: “Vital population immunity is prevented by total isolation policies, are prolonging the problem.” Therefore: “protect the known vulnerable, self-isolate the mildly sick and open most workplaces and small businesses with some prudent large-group precautions.
“This would allow the essential socialising to generate immunity among those with minimal risk of serious consequence, while saving lives, preventing overcrowding of hospitals and limiting the enormous harms compounded by continued total isolation,” [www.wnd.com April 2020]

Bacteria, Germs and Viruses

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#bacteria

Viruses are essential for our health.
Scientists have determined that there are approximately:
• 30 trillion cells in the average size human body
• 40 trillion bacteria on and in the human body
• 380 trillion viruses on and in the human body

There are thousands of species of bacteria and viruses that compete for space and control of our tissues, made up of beneficial players, opportunists and harmful actors. These organisms are significantly influenced by how we live, exercise, sleep, what we eat and drink and these lifestyle factors even effect how our genes are expressed. We call all these healthy organisms symbiotic, because we both benefit from each other. In fact, we could not survive without them!

Beneficial bacteria are the housekeepers and defenders of our gastrointestinal (G.I.) tract. They produce B-vitamins, brain signalling molecules like serotonin (the antidepressant “brain” hormone—about 80% of it is made in the gut), short chain fatty acids that feed and maintain the cells lining our G.I. tract.

share love, geerms, viruses & immunity

Bacteria regulate pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines (cell signalling protein molecules) to prevent autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and numerous other beneficial activities. Healthy bacteria also live in our mouths, on our skin, and in all the nooks and crannies of our body. They all have vital housekeeping chores in those places. The strength of the health and population numbers of our beneficial bacteria are the first line of defence of our entire immune system. It is estimated that 70% of our immune system resides in the Gut
[from “Why Has Everyone Seemingly Forgotten How the Immune System Works?“]

Bacteria, Germs, fungi and viruses are part of us. Humans first make contact with theirs in the birth canal. From that moment forward, microbes help bolster our immune systems, helping our bodies learn to live with viral diseases that enter our bloodstream. They boost the immune system, protect us from auto-immune diseases, keep us slim, detoxify and may fight off stress and keep babies healthy.

The World Health Organization has actually advised against trying to kill SARS-CoV-2 with disinfectants, both outdoors or across large indoor spaces, stating it may do more harm than good.

We need to connect with nature, get our hands dirty in good soil, have physical contact with animals and other humans and expose our immune system to all those to “keep it fit”.

Daycares in Finland Built a ‘Forest Floor’, And It Changed Children’s Immune Systems
“When daycare workers in Finland rolled out a lawn, planted forest undergrowth such as dwarf heather and blueberries, and allowed children to care for crops in planter boxes, the diversity of microbes in the guts and on the skin of young kids appeared healthier in a very short space of time.” 
“Compared to other city kids who play in standard urban daycares with yards of pavement, tile and gravel, 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds at these greened-up daycare centres in Finland showed increased T-cells and other important immune markers in their blood within 28 days. “
Prior research has shown early exposure to green space is somehow linked to a well-functioning immune system.”

“There are more bacteria in your gut than there are stars in our galaxy – most of them protect us and make us who we are.”
Overuse of antibiotics and antiseptic cleaners is impacting our ability to maintain a balance of healthy microbes in our bodies and environments.
Studies continue to prove that harmful species will exploit areas with too few good bacteria to fight back. Sterility should not be our goal.

Simply avoiding any seasonal virus (at a high cost for society, economy and psychological trauma) makes no sense, as it will return in the next season. What would make sense is to strengthen our immune system, and achieve a herd immunity in the young and healthy population, which will protect the old and infirm and those who are immune system compromised.

Why don’t we stop fighting this virus and make friends with coronavirus instead?
Waging war against a virus is like waging war against ourselves.

school age children more likely to be hit by lightening than die of coronavirus
Telegraph headline 9 June 2020

School age children more likely to be hit by lightning than die of coronavirus
Many media reports of young and healthy people dying from Covid19 turned out to be false: many of these young people either did not die from Covid-19, they had already been seriously ill (e.g. from undiagnosed leukaemia), or they were in fact 109 instead of 9 years old. The claimed increase in Kawasaki disease in children also turned out to be false.

The Times reports on 28 August: No child who was not already profoundly ill has died of Covid-19 in Britain, a large study has indicated

Children are NOT spreading coronavirus.

“Scientists are yet to find a single confirmed case of a teacher catching coronavirus from a pupil anywhere in the world”, [professor Mark Woolhouse]

“in hindsight closing schools in March was probably a mistake, but the limited role children play in spreading the virus only became clear further along the infection curve.”
As an infectious disease epidemiologist at Edinburgh University, Mark Woolhouse is a member of the UK government’s scientific advisory group, SAGE.

 A Rapid Systematic Review published in the Lancet in April
Effectiveness of school social distancing measures found
no data were available“school closures made very little difference” and “there were school children diagnosed with SARS in Singapore, none of them were identified through temperature screening” and There was no evidence of spread of the infection in schools, with spread among children almost entirely through family settings and living in the same apartment blocks as infected cases.” 

Why Kids Need to Spend Time in Nature:
“Most of the studies agree that kids who play outside are smarter, happier, more attentive, and less anxious than kids who spend more time indoors.”
While calling it a disorder might be merely rhetorical, it’s clear kids spend significantly more time inside than outside. This shift is largely due to technology: The average American child is said to spend 4 to 7 minutes a day in unstructured play outdoors, and over 7 hours a day in front of a screen.
Nature reduces stress and fatigue. According to the Attention Restoration Theory, urban environments exhaust our brains. In natural environments, we practice an effortless type of attention known as soft fascination that creates feelings of pleasure, not fatigue.

‘Long Covid’ / ‘Long-haulers’

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#long-haulers – chapter updated 20 January 2021

Could it be, that coronavirus brings underlying conditions to the surface we did not even know before? The mantra “a healthy immune system will deal with all” does not always work, as ‘The Atlantic’ reports on 4 June: COVID-19 Can Last for Several Months.
The disease’s “long-haulers” [or: long covid] have endured relentless waves of debilitating symptoms—and disbelief from doctors and friends.
Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) is typically diagnosed when symptoms persist for six months or more.
About 40 percent of the residents who survived the SARS epidemic of 2003 had chronic-fatigue problems after three years or so, and 27 percent met the CDC’s criteria for ME/CFS. Many different acute pathogens seem to trigger the same inflammatory responses that culminate in the same chronic endgame.
This is post-exertional malaise—the defining feature of ME/CFS. It’s a severe multi-organ crash that follows activity as light as a short walk. It’s also distinct from mere exhaustion: You can’t just push through it, and you’ll feel much worse if you try. The ME/CFS community has learned that resting as much as possible in the early months of postviral fatigue is crucial.
The condition is especially underdiagnosed among black and brown communities, who are also disproportionately likely to be infected and killed by COVID-19.
But recovery is not a simple matter of flipping a switch. For some, it will take more time than the entire duration of the pandemic thus far.

On the 19th August The Atlantic reports:
David Putrino, a neuroscientist and a rehabilitation specialist at Mount Sinai Hospital, has surveyed long-haulers, most are women. Their average age is 44. Most were formerly fit and healthy and experienced
illnesses, such as dysautonomia (disorders that disturb the autonomic nervous system) and myalgic encephalomyelitis.
In an Italian study with 143 patients, 87 percent of hospitalised patients still had at least one symptom after two months, particularly fatigue and dyspnea. A British study found similar trends, including insomnia
More than 90 percent of long-haulers whom Putrino has worked with, also have “post-exertional malaise,” in which even mild bouts of physical or mental exertion can trigger a severe physiological crash.
The trick is to slowly recondition a patient’s nervous system through careful exercises like relaxation and somatic-awareness techniques, without triggering a debilitating crash.
Many long-haulers start feeling better in their fourth or fifth month.

Dr. Wodarg points out that it’s not so much the virus itself that causes long term damage, but the body’s own disturbed immune-response that causes the damage. Seen in the light of the existing science on the same kind of ‘damage’ caused by Influenza it would indeed suggest that the alleged unique damage caused by COVID-19 is not that unique at all. Claims of ‘permanent damage’ made only 2-4 month after the infections took place are premature.

“Seen in the light of the existing science on the same kind of ‘damage’ caused by Influenza it would indeed suggest that the alleged unique damage caused by COVID-19 is not that unique at all.” [Dr. W. Wodarg]

It seems like coronavirus works as a catalyst, bringing hidden weaknesses or underlying health conditions to the surface. Why don’t we use this opportunity to get our health into resiliant shape?

In the article “Is Niacin a Missing Piece of the COVID Puzzle?” are the following tips:
as a “health restorative therapy” for those diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2, they recommend starting with a dose of 500 milligrams of immediate-release niacin, two to three times a day, ideally within the first 48 hours of symptom onset. As your flush response lessens, increase your dose to 1,000 mg, two to three times a day. [source]

“For the subgroup of patients still suffering with high cytokines profiles from deep, remnant damage of previously experienced SARS-CoV-2 infection — termed the ‘long-haulers‘ — alleviation from ailment(s) towards complete health restoration to pre-infection state from initiating and maintaining the aforementioned dosage regimen has consistently been reported to assume within two days and to incrementally follow further over the course of weeks.”24

Dr. Mercola comments: “My research suggests you really only need about 25 mg per day of niacin, which will not cause flushing in nearly anyone. I believe most would benefit from taking 25 mg of niacin daily, preferably in a well-balanced B complex, which would have thiamine (B1) that has also been shown to be useful in COVID-19.. I believe a superior strategy to high-dose niacin in acute COVID-19 would be to use nebulized hydrogen peroxide at 0.1%. .”

A Supercomputer Analyzed Covid-19 and led to the bradykinin hypothesis, providing a model that explains many aspects of Covid-19, including some of its most bizarre symptoms.
It also suggests 10-plus potential treatments, many of which are already FDA approved. Jacobson’s group published their results in a paper in the journal eLife in early July.
This hypothesis might point towards demystifying the covid long-haulers?

Stress Stops Immunity. Relax! Laugh!

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#stress updated 2 April 2021

It would be SO much better for everyone’s health, if the Health Ministry would actively support and promote events where people get together and de-stress dancing, singing, laughing or groups and events for relaxation.

Happiness Chemicals And How To Hack Them:
Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin & Endorphine
Happy people are more likely to also be healthy.
Unhappy people are more likely to feel and become ill

Uncertainty, worries about the future or job loss, and fear of the unknown virus causes stress; as a result we will sooner or later come down with any illness (see Lockdown Loneliness & Isolation).

Stop watching TV news or reading the daily paper, and do something creative, or any relaxing activities instead! Meeting good friends and sharing your worries helps you cope in troubled times.

Laughter Yoga unwinds the negative effects of stress and strengthens your immune system. It is an exercise program for Health and Wellbeing. If you laugh every day, you will not fall sick easily.
If you have chronic health conditions like heart disease, Hypertension, Diabetes, Depression, Anxiety, Panic attacks and even Cancer, you will heal much faster. Laughter Yoga increases oxygen to your body and brain, and makes you feel healthy and energetic. It is a great exercise for team building, peak performance, Creativity and emotional intelligence.
The yoga part of Laughter is the combination of Laughter Exercises with yoga breathing techniques ( Pranayama ). There are more than 20,000 free social Laughter clubs in 110 countries. Besides, Laughter Yoga also being practised in Senior centres, age care facilities, schools and colleges, companies, corporations, factories, physically and mentally challenged, police and prisons….

Laughter Yoga releases endorphins which are natural pain killers, that can help those suffering from arthritis, spondylitis, chronic migraine headaches, chronic pains, fibromyalgia, autoimmune and chronic inflammatory diseases.

We need laughter, humour, joy
to stay sane and human.
When did you last have a good laugh?

Below are two methods for stress relief from the article
COVID-19 Pandemic Has Decimated Mental Health:
1) Try the Neuro-Emotional Technique’s First Aid Stress Tool, or NET FAST, demonstrated in the short video below.

  2. Place your open right hand on your forehead. Gently breathe in and out several times while concentrating on feeling the issue that bothers you
  3. Switch hands and repeat Steps 1 and 2

2) A tapping strategy to relieve anxiety and other challenging emotions brought on by news and uncertainty about this pandemic and/or self-quarantining is demonstrated below (10 minute video):

Removing Coronavirus Anxiety with tapping: “Emotional Freedom Technique” EFT Demonstration With Julie Schiffman

Loneliness is an important social stressor that can activate the body’s stress responses. When prolonged, that response can lead to increased inflammation and reduced immunity, particularly in older adults. Inflammation is the body’s response to fight off infection or heal an injury, but when it continues unchecked it can have a harmful impact on health. Under chronic stress, the body becomes less sensitive to the effects of the stress hormones, leading to increased inflammation and eventually disease.

Health Benefits of Socialising

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#benefit-socialising

Health is a state of complete physical, mental
and social well-being and not merely the absence
of disease or other physical impairment [WHO]

“Without social activities, without joy, without thrill, without hugs and kisses, without plans, hopes and dreams, we will cease to be human.
We must oppose anyone who says otherwise” [@robotmats]

Humans are “social animals”, and need each other’s company to stay sane and healthy. Attending a music, sports, dance or other event, or hanging out with friends in a pub lifts the spirit, relaxes, and makes people happy. At the same time the immune system is stimulated by exposure to other peoples’ germs, bacteria and viruses.

daily confirmed covid deaths UK until September 2020, two months after the pubs opened 29 June shows NO increase
Opening pubs shows: socialising does not result in deaths

Meetings to worship together with others from your church, mosque, synagogue, temple, your sangha or your ‘tribe’ is especially powerful.
It brings in the spirit of community, which has comforted and supported religious and spiritual groups throughout history. Some forms of worship include healing, many involve singing or chanting and worshipful prayer.
“When two or three are gathered in my name, I am among them” is a phrase attributed to Jesus, which encapsulates the power which can be created when people focus their hearts and minds together.
And there is also the socialising over a cuppa and sometimes shared meals which helps connecting and bonding with others.

In her book “The Power Of Eight” Lynne McTaggart shares an astonishing fact: when people carry out intention for each other in small groups of eight, miraculous healings occur – virtually in an instant”.
All of this supports our wellbeing and the immune system.

Community is the new guru

Research has shown that prolonged loneliness is associated with increased risk for premature death, similar to smoking, alcohol consumption and obesity. Other health consequences are also associated with loneliness, including elevated risk for heart disease and stroke, and it is associated with increased physician visits and  emergency room visits.

Mass gatherings, demonstrations, concerts and festivals are safe and help keep us healthy. ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests have not seen coronavirus cases surge in cities since the massive demonstrations began, a study says. The research, which was published by the National Bureau of Economic Research, found no evidence that coronavirus cases jumped in 315 US cities in the weeks following the first protests.

Now is the time to sing, dance, celebrate and party in good company, de-stress, forget any virus worries and revive the immune system.

crowd at a concert
The immune system thrives in loving company of others.

“immune cells from high-lonely individuals show in vivo, under basal physiological conditions:
1.) decreased activity of the anti-inflammatory glucocorticoid transcription control pathway;
2.) increased activity of the pro-inflammatory NF-κB/Rel pathway. Results reveal a distinct ‘transcriptional fingerprint’ of experienced social isolation that includes genomic indications of immune activation, and a reciprocal shift in the activity of pro- and anti-inflammatory transcription control pathways that shape global gene expression in the human immune system.” [Study “Social regulation of gene expression in human leukocytes“]

In short:
loneliness breeds inflammation and disease.

Hugging and Human Touch

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#hugging – updated: 23 Jan 2021

A ‘New Scientist’ article: How to hug people in a coronavirus-stricken world, indicates, that the health benefit of hugging is greater than the covid-19 risk.
“Tiffany Field at the University of Miami in Florida and her colleagues surveyed 260 adults and found that those reporting touch deprivation scored higher on scales measuring anxiety, depression, fatigue, sleep issues and post-traumatic stress.
60 per cent of people in the US reported feeling touch-deprived during the first month of lockdown, suggests a new study, even though only a fifth of those surveyed lived alone.
A separate study of more than 1000 US adults found that those who frequently hugged, kissed or met up with friends and family in lockdown were 26 per cent less likely to report symptoms of depression and 28 per cent less likely to report loneliness… Regular video chats didn’t show the same benefits.”

"we must never stop loving each other"
Hands. Face. Embrace
Alternative meme, based on campassion, health and human needs

Hugging and virus transmission:
Logically, a good hug is less likely to transmit viruses than a face to face chat, as both huggers involved breathe into the space behind each other over their shoulders, putting hands on the backs of the other person; this makes it nearly impossible for a virus to get transmitted.
Speaking face to face does not increase oxytocin, which we need to be happy. After the lockdown people are craving for hugs and social contacts and tired of feeling miserable.

Human contact, togetherness and touch promotes health

“We saw stronger mental health benefits from types of contact that involved touch, which aligns well with the benefits we know come from close touching, like decreased heart rate, higher levels of oxytocin and lower levels of cortisol,” Molly Rosenberg, Indiana School of Public Health in Bloomington.

Even before Covid-19 there was a concern about the decrease of touch in society. So the BBC launched a new global study called ‘The Touch Test’, which took place mostly before the UK was in lockdown: ‘Why I’m not alone in missing hugs during the pandemic‘, including stories like “It’s more than six months now since I’ve hugged my parents or my friends”. On 5th October, a series of programmes “Anatomy of Touch” will start on BBC Radio 4.

Human touch is more important than we may realise

Here is another article from the New Scientist, showing why your brain needs touch to make you human. Being touchy-feely isn’t just nice – it caresses build social worlds from families to sports teams and may even give us our sense of self

Hugging strengthens the immune system
Hugs increase levels of oxytocin and reduce blood pressure.
The gentle pressure on the sternum and the emotional charge this creates activates the Solar Plexus Chakra. This stimulates the thymus gland, which regulates and balances the body’s production of white blood cells, which keep you healthy and disease free.
Hugs can instantly boost oxytocin levels, which heal feelings of loneliness, isolation, and anger.

Hugs educate us how love flows both ways.
Hugs are so much like meditation and laughter. They teach us to let go and be present in the moment. They encourage us to flow with the energy of life. Hugs get you out of your circular thinking patterns and connect you with your heart and your feelings and your breath.

Touching and being in close contact with others keeps us happy and healthy

The importance of human touch:
“All human primates are wired for touch, whether we like or not,” says Francis McGlone, a professor of neuroscience at Liverpool John Moores University.
“‘Skin hunger’ is a layman’s term for what, in research, is known as ‘affection deprivation’, which is associated with a range of psychological and even physical health detriments,” adds Kory Floyd, a professor of communication at the University of Arizona who has written extensively on how a dearth of tactile affection can be linked to stress, depression, loneliness and anxiety.
McGlone’s area of interest lies in a different nerve altogether – the C-tactile afferent. This touch-hungry nerve fibre responds specifically to gentle stroking and, unlike its counterpart, does not send this information to the brain straight away – it takes several seconds to arrive.
“That nerve clearly evolved differently,” says McGlone. “The nerve fibre fires up areas of the brain that connect to reward. There’s a release of oxytocin, a hormone that plays a fundamental role in our social behaviour. It has an effect on our dopamine levels, which is the brain’s reward system; it impacts on the release of serotonin, which is connected to our happiness and wellbeing; it has an impact on oustress system; and it helps lower our heart rate.”
“The effects of touch are physiological, bioelectrical and biochemical,” agrees Tiffany Field, founder of the Touch Research Institute at Miami Medical School. “Moving the skin (as, for example, in hugging, massaging and exercise) stimulates pressure receptors which are transmitted to the vagus nerve, the largest cranial nerve that has many branches in the body. Increased vagal activity calms the nervous system (e.g. slows heart rate and leads to EEG patterns that accompany relaxation). It also reduces cortisol – the culprit stress hormone – that then saves natural killer cells that kill viral, bacterial and cancer cells.”

When two cousins and best friends were hugging each other for the first time after lockdown, they started sobbing from the bottom of their hearts. This shows, how much trauma the social distancing has created in us, and how much we NEED hugs. All of us are traumatised – but adults usually don’t show or admit it.

Benefits of chanting
Chanting is a form of singing repetitive short phrases with usually a spiritual message

There are so many benefits of singing including heart health, relaxation and helping the immune system.
The first study to “demonstrate the widespread immune effects of singing, in particular its effects on cytokines showed a significant decrease in cortisol and neuropeptide levels accompanied by an acute increase in cytokine and receptor activity. …this demonstrates that improvements in mood were associated with lower levels of pro-inflammatory response”
“there was evidence that greater improvements in mood as a result of singing were associated with lower pro-inflammatory response… independent of stress levels. … those with the lowest levels of mental wellbeing and highest levels of depression experienced the greatest short-term improvement in mood across the singing session, and that these larger mood changes were associated with lower levels of inflammation.“  [from ecancer.org/en/journal/article/631]

Keeping body and soul in tune – the many health benefits of singing:

bacteria from respiratory droplets spread by singing versus talking into a petri dish
Singing versus talking to a petridish:
there’s really not much difference.
See the whole perti dish experiment in the ‘Face Masks’ chapter

The experiment on the left shows, that singing does NOT spread bacteria more than talking into a petri dish.
However: the health benefits of singing are much higher than those of talking.
WHY are we not allowed to sing?
And there is not much difference between with, and without mask.

The above experiment also proves the old advice: “catch it & bin it”.
A handkerchief or coughing / sneezing into one’s ellbow should be sufficient.

Below is an example, which should really be in the comedy section:

Humming & Nitric Oxide

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#humming – chapter created: 20 December 2020

Nitric oxide shows promise as antiviral treatment:
“An in vitro study finds that nitric oxide, NO, may suppress SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The researchers suggest that inhaled nitric oxide may be an effective treatment for the disease.
Nitric oxide is a cell signaling molecule produced naturally by the body with anti-inflammatory effects and is a vasodilator, meaning it dilates blood vessels to increase blood flow. It also has antiviral properties and is is effective against the herpes virus, coxsackievirus, and hantavirus.
It also inhibits the replication of SARS-CoV.”
“A small clinical study suggests that inhaled nitric oxide at low concentrations not only works as a vasodilator for SARS patients — improving oxygenation of their blood — but also as an antiviral agent.”
“The scientists were also able to show that nitric oxide inhibited a key enzyme called a protease that the virus needs to make copies of itself.”

PubMed.gov publihed a study in 2002: “Humming greatly increases nasal nitric oxide” – Abstract:
“The paranasal sinuses are major producers of nitric oxide (NO). We hypothesized that oscillating airflow produced by humming would enhance sinus ventilation and thereby increase nasal NO levels. Ten healthy subjects took part in the study. Nasal NO was measured with a chemiluminescence technique during humming and quiet single-breath exhalations at a fixed flow rate.
NO increased 15-fold during humming compared with quiet exhalation. In a two-compartment model of the nose and sinus, oscillating airflow caused a dramatic increase in gas exchange between the cavities…”

“Since the time of the Indian rishis
the sound of humming has been acknowledged
as the fundamental vibration of our divine self.”

The Humming Effect Book – The World’s First Guide to the Practice of Conscious Humming.
It is a powerful non-pharmaceutical prescription for self-healing that has only positive side effects, such as harmony, health, and happiness. 
“The Goldmans have superbly, practically, and with great simplicity expanded upon this truth and demonstrated the potency of the hum to heal at all levels of our being. The Humming Effect, with its audio tracks, is an essential text in extending the range of what the human voice can achieve in self-empowered wellness.”

Sunshine, Darkness & Health

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#sunshine

The media have been full with disease scares, and not much about health

There is so much more to sunshine than producing vitamin D.
Sunshine literally nourishes us and is essentila to human health.
And yes: UV light kills viruses and disinfects naturally.
Ari Whitten gives a lecture on Using Light, Circadian Rhythm, sleep and Hormesis to Optimize Immune Function.

Science proves the sun’s UV light is antiviral

A good night’s sleep is a backbone for health
Here tips from 8 Reasons Why You’re Not Sleeping Well:
• No workout within three hours of your own bedtime.
• Limit alcohol in the evening: it interferes with your REM sleep cycle
• Stay cool for the most refreshing sleep
• Avoid worries or stress; write down your worries before bedtime, along with a few things you are grateful for. Try meditating.
• No coffeine from late afternoon: the half-life of caffeine is 3-5 hours.
• Silence! Try using a white-noise machine to block out the sound.
• Darkness! Light impairs your sleep quality – sleeping with lights on results in a 50% melatonin reduction.
No electronics at least an hour before bedtime.
• No late heavy meal sending your digestive system into overdrive

exposure to room light before bedtime suppresses melatonin onset
Melatonin (produced in darkness) is essential for health

Your Brain Starts Eating Itself After Being Starved for Sleep:

  • Sleep deprivation can trigger abnormal action of astrocytes, cells involved in brain cleansing and regeneration
  • When astrocytes are functioning abnormally, they can eat and destroy healthy brain synapses, increasing your risk of Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases
  • A consistent sleep schedule is important for keeping your brain healthy and avoiding other chronic health problems
  • The exact amount of sleep you need depends on your age, overall health and activity levels, but for adults, seven to nine hours is a good general rule

In our western “modern” lives we get too little sun light exposure at day time – and too much artificial light before going to bed, which can derail the human circadian rhythm.

health impact of circadian rhythms
circadian rhythm is a natural, internal process that regulates the sleep-wake cycle and repeats roughly every 24 hours. Abnormal circadian rhythm in humans is known as circadian rhythm disorder and can lead to various diseases.

Aspirin & Coronavirus

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#aspirin – 2 February 2021

Covid-19 patients using aspirin were 43% less likely to be admitted to the ICU 
They were also 44% less likely to need ventilators due to their heart medication
Daily aspirin use also reduced the risk of death by 47%
Researchers say aspirin could be the first over-the counter drug for Covid-19 [MailOnline, 26 October 2020

Aspirin Use is Associated with Decreased Mechanical Ventilation, ICU Admission, and In-Hospital Mortality in Hospitalized Patients with COVID-19

  • The SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus can cause blood platelets to clump, leading to potential blood clots that damage organs.
  • Aspirin is known to thin the blood, helping to prevent blood clots in people who have cardiovascular disease.
  • A new study shows that people hospitalized with COVID-19 benefitted from taking low-dose aspirin.

Low-dose (81 mg) aspirin has been used as a therapy to decrease the risk of heart attacks and strokes caused by blood clots in people who have cardiovascular disease (CVD) [source]
Whether low-dose aspirin is helpful or harmful depends on who you are. If you are at risk of cardiovascular disease, it could be beneficial; but if you are at risk of ulcers and bleeding in your gastrointestinal tract, it could be harmful.

Vitamin B, Niacin & Immunity

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#vitamin-b new chapter, 20 January 2021

Is Niacin a Missing Piece of the COVID Puzzle?

  • B vitamins may play an important role in COVID-19 prevention and treatment, according to two recent papers
  • Based on B vitamins’ effects on your immune system, immune-competence and red blood cells (which help fight infection), supplementation may be a useful adjunct to other prevention and treatment strategies
  • Vitamin B assists in proper activation of both the innate and adaptive immune responses, reduces pro-inflammatory cytokine levels, improves respiratory function, maintains endothelial integrity, prevents hypercoagulability and can reduce the length of stay in hospital.
  • Niacin (vitamin B3) appears particularly important. According to a recent paper, there appears to be a causative link between low niacin status and SARS-CoV-2 infection
  • SARS-CoV-2’s ability to invade your body is dependent on calcium signaling, which in turn is dependent on the presence of NAADP, which is formed from niacin. NAADP-dependent calcium signaling is responsible both for the inhibition of viral entry into cells and driving the virus out of already infected cells

Vitamin B1 (thiamine) — Thiamine improves immune system function, protects cardiovascular health, inhibits inflammation and aids in healthy antibody responses.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) — Riboflavin in combination with ultraviolet light has been shown to decrease the infectious titer of SARS-CoV-2 below the detectable limit
Vitamin B3 (niacin/nicotinamide) — Niacin is a building block of NAD and NADP, which are vital when combating inflammation.
“the downstream inflammatory propagation of ensuing severe acute respiratory virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection is entirely prohibited or reversed upstream out the body to expeditiously restore health with well-tolerated dynamic supplementation of sufficient NA (i.e., ~1-3 grams per day).”
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) — Vitamin B5 aids in wound healing and reduces inflammation.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxal 5′-phosphate/pyridoxine) — Pyridoxal 5′-phosphate (PLP), the active form of vitamin B6, is a cofactor in several inflammatory pathways.
Vitamin B9 (folate/folic acid) — Folate, the natural form of B9 found in food, is required for the synthesis of DNA and protein in your adaptive immune response.
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) — B12 is required for healthy synthesis of red blood cells and DNA. A deficiency in B12 increases inflammation and oxidative stress by raising homocysteine levels. B12 deficiency is also associated with certain respiratory disorders. Advancing age can diminish your body’s ability to absorb B12 from food

“A recent study showed that methylcobalamin supplements have the potential to reduce COVID-19-related organ damage and symptoms. A clinical study conducted in Singapore showed that COVID-19 patients who were given vitamin B12 supplements (500 μg), vitamin D (1000 IU) and magnesium had reduced COVID-19 symptom severity and supplements significantly reduced the need for oxygen and intensive care support.”

Niacin Modulates the Bradykinin Storm
COVID-19 also triggers bradykinin storms. Bradykinin is a chemical that helps regulate your blood pressure and is controlled by your renin-angiotensin system (RAS). The bradykinin hypothesis provides a model that helps explain some of the more unusual symptoms of COVID-19, including its bizarre effects on your cardiovascular system
[see chapter ‘Covid Long Haulers‘ above]

As a “health restorative therapy” for those diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2, they recommend starting with a dose of 500 milligrams of immediate-release niacin, two to three times a day, ideally within the first 48 hours of symptom onset. As your flush response lessens, increase your dose to 1,000 mg, two to three times a day.23

Vitamin C Covid-19 Treatment

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#vitamin-c – updated: 9 Feb 2021

On 4th of March 2020, the Chinese Journal of Infectious Disease, hosted by the Medical Association of Shanghai, published “The expertise consensus regarding the total treatment of coronavirus in Shanghai 2019”. This document is of extraordinary importance, as it concentrates the Chinese experience in combating the virus: 
Antiviral treatment of light and ordinary patients:
“Heparin anticoagulation and high-dose vitamin C are recommendedVitamin C is administered at a dose of 50 to 100 mg / kg body weight per day… In the event of a “cytokine storm”, intermittent short veno-venuous hemofiltration (ISVVH) is recommended.”
Treatment for severe and critically ill patients:
“6. Prevention and treatment of cytokine storm: It is recommended to use large doses of vitamin C and unfractionated heparin. Large doses of vitamin C are injected intravenously at a dose of 100 to 200 mg / kg per day.”

usual bowel tolerance doses of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) for different conditions
VITAMIN C, TITRATING TO BOWEL TOLERANCE, ANASCORBEMIA, AND ACUTE INDUCED SCURVY Notice:
viral pneumonia:  100 – 200+ per 24 hours, 12 – 25 doses per 24 hours

VITAMIN C DOSING: How much vitamin C should I take?
Your optimal dose of vitamin C depends on one thing: you. Are you healthy? Stressed? Sick? In sickness it was observed by Robert F. Cathcart, III, MD, that, “The amount of oral ascorbic acid (vitamin C) tolerated by a patient without producing diarrhea (loose bowels) increases somewhat proportionately to the stress or toxicity of his disease” and “[s]tressful conditions of any kind greatly increase utilization of vitamin C.” In other words, the sicker or more stressed you are, the more vitamin C you will “hold” before getting to saturation (bowel tolerance). Bowel tolerance is indicated by gas, a rumbling stomach, or slightly loose stool. If you take way too much C, very loose stool will result, but this goes away once dosages are reduced. When bowel tolerance is reached, this is a sign to back off the extra C. We continue to take C, but we take less and less often. It may take days to resolve illness (it depends how sick we are) but when healthy, the body needs less and “holds” less C. “

Biophysicist Virgiliu Gheorghe on the topic of vitamin C:
it looks like it was vitamin C that lead to stopping the epidemic in China.” in the article Coronavirus Coverup — Vitamin C Dramatic Help against Infection in China, South Korea — Why Aren’t We Told

Orthomolecular.org reports on 16 August:
These studies show very promising results including statistically significant reduction in mortality and inflammation of Covid-19 patients treated with HDIVC [High Dose IntraVenous Vitamin C], with no significant side effect.
But no major medical journals have agreed to publish the papers”.
“…12 qualified patients (18 years or older), 6 critically ill and 6 severely ill patients, were identified and included in the final analysis. C reactive protein, lymphocyte count and CD4+ T cell counts returned to normal on Day 3.
Similar trend of improvement in blood oxygenation levels (PaO2/FiO2) and SOFA (an organ failure measurement) score was also observed, after HDIVC … there were no deaths in HDIVC treated Covid-19 patients in Shanghai.”
“An NIH document (updated in February 2020) clearly states that HDIVC is safe even at very high doses”
The FDA even allows “compassionate drug use” which stipulates the use of new and unapproved drug to treat seriously ill patient when no other treatments are available [11].”

The NHS and NICE only mention vitamin C use for treating scurvy, and declare: “Claims that vitamin C ameliorates colds or promotes wound healing have not been proven.”
Wikipedia states “Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin,[22] … exhibits remarkably low acute toxicity.[5] More than two to three grams may cause indigestion, particularly when taken on an empty stomach.”

Scheme showing no improvement unless really high doses of vitamin C are taken. Disease symptom curves indicate very little effect on acute symptoms until doses of 80-90% of bowel tolerance are reached. Perhaps it is only near tolerance doses that the ascorbate is pushed into the primary sites of the disease.

‘Public Health’ should promote the use of Vitamin C as a home remedy to prevent and treat inflammation before using NHS services, recommending “titrating to bowel tolerance”.

Only when enough vitamin C is made available to the body, dramatic improvement occurs.

There is evidence that vitamin C and quercetin co-administration exerts a synergistic antiviral action due to overlapping antiviral and immunomodulatory properties and the capacity of ascorbate to recycle quercetin, increasing its efficacy:

  • Quercetin and Vitamin C: Synergistic Therapy for COVID-19
  • Vitamin C and quercetin have synergistic effects, useful in the prevention and early at-home treatment of COVID-19. Both are part of the MATH+ protocol developed by the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Working Group (FLCCC)
  • For COVID-19 prophylaxis, the FLCCC recommends vitamin C, quercetin, zinc, melatonin and vitamin D3
  • The in-hospital MATH+ protocol calls for intravenous methylprednisone, high-dose ascorbic acid (vitamin C), thiamine and heparin. Optional additions include melatonin, zinc, vitamin D3, atorvastatin, famotidine and magnesium
  • Starting aggressive treatment as early as possible is crucial

“…large doses of vitamin C could also cure other viral diseases such as meningitis, hepatitis, measles, mumps, pneumonia, shingles and even the poisonous bite of a rattlesnake. [2-4] 
Since that time other researchers have reported that there is no viral disease that high-dose IVC cannot successfully treat.
“Klenner did not win a popularity contest with his colleagues. He wrote in frustration that “Some physicians would stand by and see their patient die rather than use ascorbic acid because in their finite minds it exists only as a vitamin.”
“…doctors who use IVC in North America are being harassed by authorities. In some case, being told that if they persist they will lose their license to practice medicine.” [source]

Vitamin D Covid-19 Treatment

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#vitamin-d – updated: 31 March 2021

22 Feb 2021: A Spanish study found giving supplemental vitamin D3 (calcifediol) to hospitalized patients with PCR-confirmed COVID-19 — in addition to standard care — reduced ICU admissions by 82% and mortality by 64%
You need 244% more oral vitamin D if you’re not also taking magnesium and vitamin K2.43 [source]

Vitamin D supplementation reduced the risk of acute respiratory tract infection among all participants in 25 eligible randomised controlled trials with 11 321 participants, Vitamin D supplementation was safe and it protected against acute respiratory tract infection overall. Patients who were very vitamin D deficient and those not receiving bolus doses experienced the most benefit.”

  • A randomized clinical study found giving hospitalized COVID-19 patients calcifediol (a vitamin D3 analog) in addition to standard care reduced intensive care unit admissions from 50% to 2%. None of those given calcifediol died, and all were discharged without complications
  • Vitamin D lowers viral replication, boosts your overall immune function by modulating both innate and adaptive immune responses, reduces respiratory distress, improves overall lung function and helps produce surfactants in your lungs that aid in fluid clearance
  • Vitamin D also lowers your risk of comorbidities associated with poor COVID-19 prognosis, including obesity, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease [source]

An August 2020 study found patients who had a vitamin D level below 12 ng/mL (30 nmol/L) had a 6.12 times higher risk of severe disease requiring invasive mechanical ventilation, and a 14.7 times higher risk of death compared to those with a vitamin D level above 12 ng/mL

An adult will need to take 4,000 IU/day of vitamin D3 for three months to reliably achieve a 75 nmol/L level. Persons of colour may need twice as much.”
“And since vitamin D is fat-soluble and its level in the body rises slowly, for those with a deficiency, taking an initial dose of 5-fold the normal dose (20,000 IU/day) for two weeks can help to raise the level up to an adequate level to lower infection risk.”
Government recommendations for vitamin D intake — 400 IU/day for the UK and 600 IU/day for the USA (800 IU for >70 years) and the EU — are based primarily on bone health. This is woefully inadequate in the pandemic context.” [source]

Vitamin D biochemistry, RAS and ARDS – summary of findings in this section:

  • Chronic Vitamin D deficiency induces lung fibrosis through activation of the RAS.
  • Vitamin D deficiency contributes directly to the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
  • Low Vitamin D Status Occurs in 90% of Patients with ARDS and Is Associated with Longer Duration of Mechanical Ventilation.
  • Vitamin D prevents experimental lung fibrosis and predicts survival in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
  • Vitamin D alleviates lipopolysaccharide‑induced acute lung injury via regulation of the renin‑angiotensin system.
  • VDR Attenuates Acute Lung Injury by Blocking Ang-2-Tie-2 Pathway and Renin-Angiotensin System.
  • 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 suppresses renin gene transcription by blocking the activity of the cyclic AMP response element in the renin gene promoter.
  • Vitamin D supplementation is safe and protects against respiratory tract infection.
  • Studies in HIV patients show Vitamin D induces anti-inflammatory responses through direct effects on T-cells. 
    Vitamin D promotes an anti-inflammatory response by inhibiting the maturation of dendritic cells, downregulating antigen presenting molecules (MHC-class II), costimulatory molecules (e.g., CD40, CD80, and CD86), and pro-inflammatory cytokines (e.g., IL-12 and IL-23); Simultaneously, Vitamin D enhances anti-inflammatory cytokine (IL-10) and T-cell inhibitory molecule (PD-1).

Chronic vitamin D deficiency induces lung fibrosis through activation of the renin-angiotensin system

  • Vitamin D is causal in reducing development of all cancers, including colorectal cancer.
  • Mortality rates for colorectal cancer have been shown to correlate with latitude.
  • Vitamin D insufficiency/deficiency plays a causative role in the prevalence of Crohn’s Disease.
  • People living near the equator are at low risk of developing inflammatory bowel disease, however, upon migration to developed countries in temperate climates, the risk of IBD increases.
  • Regular doses of vitamin D (VTD)—about 2000 IU/d—early in life have been shown to reduce the risk of developing type 1 diabetes (up to an 80% reduction projected over the next 30 years)
  • Vitamin D is implicated in procognitive and neuroprotective functions, including the reduction of Alzheimer’s disease hallmarks 
  • Nicotine (smoking) downregulates ACE2 almost certainly worsening Covid-19 outcomes for smokers and ex-smokers.

HealthTruth.info comment: there is no patent on D3, so no profit;
all the profit is in the flu vaccines and covid vaccines.

WARNING: in very rare cases of hypercalcemia (too much calcium in the blood), vitamin D3 should NOT be taken. In March 2021 a woman, B., contacted HealthTruth.info and shared her story:
“We spoke about Vitamin D and  I’ve just written a few words on my problems with it here, I realise it is probably very rare.  I had lots of bloods taken at that time and no other seemed to be of concern.
1) after blood test  Vit D on lowest limit of lower level, advised to take a minimum dose  in 2016/2017 apx 1000iu per day or 7000 a week.
Symptoms had been tiredness, aching and not enough energy in muscles when at Gym, walking was fine.
2) after apx 4 weeks aching got worse , after 6 weeks started to feel really tired bones aching, felt sick, then weeing more, drinking more, for about 3 days as well as previous noticed my vision blurred by afternoon and difficulty focusing, also think I may have had heart palpitations . Final evening started feeling really unwell, thirsty , going to toilet, sweating, all bones ached, by late evening in agony, literally crawled in to bed laid there in agony even my toe bones ached all bones ached. Laid in bed all evening in agony couldn’t face getting  to hospital sitting in waiting room as everything just hurt too much so just lay there all night.
Next morning felt better than I had and stopped taking any supplements incl vitamin D took it easy, noticed after stopping Vitamin D, I was feeling better each day & tried to get the doctors to find out if too much vitamin D
took blood but  vit D still low , I realise they probably should have taken a calcium blood check as later found out the symptoms were hypercalcemia.
For some, taking a vitamin D supplement over an extended period of time can cause the blood calcium level to rise. If calcium in the blood exceeds a normal level, hypercalcemia may develop.
3) Many people prescribing Vitamin D say cant take too much, but clearly there are a few like me that it doesnt agree with.   Long term I’ve noticed my toes still ache regularly, especially after a long walk.
Only other medical problems at the time was I will have been menopausal  & stressed.
Happy for you to let people be aware of this, preferably not name me, but do mention its rare as I dont want to panic anyone when everyone is being told to take vitamin D.
I only know of one elderly person in a nursing home who had similar problems, but if anyone feels worse after taking  Vitamin D please stop & review.”

Madagascar’s remedy ‘Covid-Organics’

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#madagaskar

“This herbal tea gives results in seven days,” said Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina in April. ‘Covid Organics’ is a herbal remedy (also known as Tambavy CVO), produced from artemisia, a plant with proven efficacy against malaria, and other indigenous herbs, according to the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research, which developed the beverage.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) advised people against using untested remedies for COVID-19. “Even if therapies are derived from traditional practice and natural, establishing their efficacy and safety through rigorous clinical trials is critical.”

Sweet wormwood - Artemisia

Does Madagascar’s herbal remedy, COVID-Organics work?
In short, our venture EMSKE Phytochem comes out very much in support of COVID-Organics… Quercetin-7-glucoside (aka “quercimeritrin”) actually shows a rather strong 9.15 in the silico assay results. What we see as demonstrating efficacy in the extract is in a lot of common everyday fruits & vegetables as well, like red onions. This plant has been known to (Chinese) traditional medicine to be safe for administering by way of ingestion. 

In Germany  Artemisia annua plant extract was tested (also known as sweet wormwood). Researchers found that the leaves of Artemisia extract showed anti-viral activity after being extracted with pure ethanol or distilled water. The anti-viral activity increased considerably when the ethanol extract was combined with coffee.

Selenium Benefits

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#selenium

Researchers found that areas with high levels of selenium were more likely to recover from the virus. In the city of Enshi in Hubei Province, which has the highest selenium intake in China, the cure rate (percentage of Covid-19 patients declared ‘cured’) was almost three-times higher than the average for all the other cities in Hubei Province.
By contrast, in Heilongjiang Province, where selenium intake is among the lowest in the world, the death rate from Covid-19 was almost five-times as high as the average of all the other provinces outside of Hubei.
Selenium appears relevant to a number of evolutionarily distinct viruses, via potential immunomodulatory effects that are fully consistent with the many essential roles of selenium in the immune system.

Here are some known health benefits of selenium:
Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Effects
Improved Thyroid Health
Cancer Prevention
Heart Health
Fertility Support
Help Treating Asthma
Foods rich in selenium:
Brazil nuts, Salmon, Tuna, Turkey, Cottage cheese, Chicken, Mushrooms, Halibut, Eggs, Navy beans, Sardines, Sunflower seeds, Grass-fed beef, Oats

HCQ – Hydroxychloroquine + Zinc

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#hcq

Treating covid-19 successfully with zinc and hydroxychloroquine:

Zinc inhibits RNA polymerase activity of coronaviruses and thus blocks virus replication. Hydroxychloroquine and quercetin support the cellular absorption of zinc and have additional anti-viral properties.

“The mortality rate from COVID-19 in countries that allow access to HCQ is only one-tenth the mortality rate in countries where there is interference with this medication, such as the United States,” the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons (AAPS) general counsel Andrew Schlafly said, citing easier access to the drug in Philippines, Poland, Israel, Turkey, and even Venezuela.

Turkey’s COVID-19 Early Hydroxychloroquine Treatment Strategy
“As soon as a patient has symptoms, they are treated with hydroxychloroquine tablets and/or favipiravir at home. Follow-up calls quickly spot if the symptoms worsen, and then they will be admitted to hospital.”
The Turkish approach is at odds with most countries, such as the UK, where symptomatic patients are asked to stay home, wait, until the symptoms essentially become unbearable, and then serious complications and hospitalisation become very likely.
[Sky News written reporting is remarkable, covering how early outpatient treatment is implemented in Turkey. But there is not a word in their TV program about it]

WARNING: according to Dr. Wodarg, people with ancestors from malaria countries (Africa) may have a glucose-6-dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency, a hereditary trait particularly common among ethnic groups living in or coming from areas with malaria. One of the substances dangerous in all forms of this enzyme deficiency is is the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ).
Little attention is paid to this serious side effect in HCQ studies.

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) Treatment

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#NAC

FDA Wants to Ban NAC Now That It Combats COVID-19:

  • N-acetylcysteine (NAC) has a long history of use as a first-aid remedy for acetaminophen poisoning. Compelling research suggests it may also be useful against COVID-19
  • By raising glutathione, NAC combats oxidative stress, which is a main cause of the cytokine storm associated with COVID-19. NAC also inhibits hypercoagulation and breaks up blood clots, which is another complication seen in some COVID-19 cases
  • NAC helps loosen thick mucus in the lungs and improves a variety of lung-related problems, including pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), both of which are common characteristics of COVID-19
  • NAC was found to improve immune function and reduce the severity of influenza infections. 
  • Aside from increasing glutathione, NAC may also prevent or improve COVID-19 infection by improving T cell response and modulating inflammation

At present, seven studies involving NAC for COVID-19 are listed on Clinicaltrials.gov.5
The number needed to treat (NNT) in the study8 cited by Debé is 0.5, which means for every two people treated with NAC, one will be protected against symptomatic influenza. That’s significantly better than influenza vaccines, which have an NNV (number needed to vaccinate) of 71,9 meaning 71 people must be vaccinated to prevent a single case of confirmed influenza. It’s even better than vitamin D, which has an NNT of 33.10 
With COVID-19 treatment as a new indication, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is now suddenly cracking down on NAC, claiming it is excluded from the definition of a dietary supplement, as it was approved as a new drug in 1985.2 As such, NAC cannot be marketed as a supplement.

June 30, 2020, “Zelenko and two co-authors published a study,10 currently in preprint, which found treating COVID-19 patients who had confirmed positive test results “as early as possible after symptom onset” with zinc, low-dose hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin “was associated with significantly less hospitalizations and five times less all-cause deaths.” Hydroxychloroquine has been used safely for 65 years in many millions of patients.”

From How a False Hydroxychloroquine Narrative Was Created

The Swiss Policy Research recommends the following Covid-19 treatment
(updated 4 September):
Prophylaxis:
Zinc (50mg to 100mg per day)
Quercetin (500mg to 1000mg per day)
Bromhexine (25mg to 50mg per day)
Vitamins C (1000mg) and D (2000 u/d)

Early treatment:
Zinc (75mg to 150mg per day)
Quercetin (500mg to 1500mg per day)
Bromhexine (50mg to 75mg per day)
Vitamins C (1000mg) and D (4000 u/d)

Ancillary (prescription only):
Hydroxychloroquine (400mg per day)
High-dose vitamin D (1x 100,000 IU)
Azithromycin (up to 500mg per day)
Heparin (usual dosage)
Note: Contraindications for HCQ (e.g. favism or heart disease) must be observed.
Addendum: Other prescription drugs with first reported successes in the early medical treatment of Covid-19 are ivermectin (read more) and favipiravir (read more).

Professor Thomas Borody, from the Centre for Digestive Diseases in Sydney, Australia, claims in covexit.com in August: It’s Easier than Treating the Flu
COVID-19 is now curable with Ivermectin in combination with 2 other widely available generic drugs – Doxycycline and Zinc 
it can treat and get rid, within 6 to 10 days, of the coronavirus”
Why aren’t we treating every elderly person in every health care facility, in every aged care facility with this? “There is no drug company behind it. “There are no people who are lobbying government and giving donations for reelections.”

Budesonide is an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid. Inhaled with a nebulizer directly into the lungs, it prevents the cytokene storm triggered by covid-19. This is an easily deployable pre-hospital community-based treatment. “Thus far, 100% of my patients appear to be symptom free following a course of inhaled Budesonide therapy”. Budesonide has been studied and utilized for lung related inflammation for over 20 years. Taiwan, Japan and South Korea have used this treatment successfully, keeping covid-19 death numbers low. “Delayed treatment is not a valid health strategy”

Homeopathy, Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#homeopathy-acupuncture – updated 23 January 2021

Acupuncture could help coronavirus patientsstudy says
By Hannah Frishberg and Hannah Sparks, August 17, 2020
The traditional Chinese practice influenced rodents’ ability to cope with a cytokine storm. In the new study, researchers found that mice experiencing a cytokine storm had a 40% greater chance of survival when treated with electroacupuncture. As well, acupuncture worked well as a preventative practice: Mice treated with acupuncture before developing a cytokine storm experienced lower levels of inflammation and their survival rate increased from 20 to 80%.
“It’s always nice when Western studies back up the ancient healing medical system of acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine… Acupuncture is fantastic at triggering the body’s innate healing abilities, helping with inflammation and calming the nervous system. I have seen great results at my practice, treating patients with post-COVID-19 symptoms,” said acupuncturist Sara Reznikoff

Homeopaths have trialed remedies for covid-19 with highly encouraging results.
Phosphorous and Spigelia.
“Homeopathy is hugely successful during epidemics, with a lower mortality rate and people getting better much more quickly,” says Sherr. “So far, the results with COVID-19 have been amazing.”
Of the 204 cases, 64 percent reported their symptoms as “very much better” after homeopathy, 28 percent were “much better.” The other seven percent were either somewhat better or unchanged. None worsened.
The main remedies used in stage 1 cases were Aconite, Phosphorus, and Bryonia. The stage 2 cases had more intense and deeper symptoms and reduced vitality.
The contrast between the attitude of homeopaths like Sherr and the tales of helplessness and despair from medical doctors and nurses watching patients die alone on ventilators in traditional hospital ICUs, separated from their loved ones, couldn’t be starker.

The Scientist Magazine reports on the 7th February 2020:
“The Indian government’s Ministry of AYUSH, which promotes alternative medicine systems in the country, released a health advisory on January 29 that advocates the use of homeopathy and traditional remedies, such as Indian systems of medicine, to ward off infections of the newly circulating 2019-nCoV coronavirus. This includes the use of a homeopathic preparation called Arsenicum album 30C and two drops of sesame oil in each nostril each morning for prevention, and Unani medicines (treatments based on the teachings of Hippocrates and Galen) to mitigate symptoms of coronavirus infection.

New Coronavirus: All Eyes On India specifies another homeopathic treatment:
“It has recommended one dose of Arsenicum album 30, daily in empty stomach for three days. The dose should be repeated after one month by following the same schedule in case Coronavirus infections prevail in the community.”

According to Dr. med. Johannes Wilkens (ärztlicher Direktor der Alexander von Humboldt Klinik in Bad Steben, Landkreis Hof, Germany), homeopathic treatment with Bryonia/Stannum removes covid-19 symptoms after three days. [source: Verblüffende Corona-Heilungen durch homöopathische und anthroposophische Arzneimittel, 20 December 2020]

As homeopathy usually has no side effects, the only criticism could be that using homeopathy might prevent people from getting a “proper” treatment. As health officials keep claiming “there is no treatment for coronavirus”, this risk is clearly not existant.

Can Chinese Medicine Be Used for Prevention of Corona Virus Disease?
A Review of Historical Classics, Research Evidence and Current Prevention Programs from 17 Februry states:
“The infection rate of H1N1 influenza in the CM group was significantly lower than the non-CM group.”
The most frequently used herbs included Radix astragali (Huangqi), Radix glycyrrhizae (Gancao), Radix saposhnikoviae (Fangfeng), Rhizoma Atractylodis Macrocephalae (Baizhu), Lonicerae Japonicae Flos (Jinyinhua), and Fructus forsythia (Lianqiao).
Conclusions: Based on historical records and human evidence of SARS and H1N1 influenza prevention, Chinese herbal formula could be an alternative approach for prevention of COVID-19 in high-risk population.”

Research suggests seaweed used in traditional Chinese medicine could protect against COVID-19:
“a carbohydrate found in the seaweed Ecklonia kurome blocks the activity of an enzyme that is essential for the replication of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) – the agent that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).” The seaweed is called “Kun Bu” in China.
The researchers found that polysaccharide 375 completely blocked the enzyme activity of 3CLpro. Furthermore, the homogeneous polysaccharide 37502 bound to 3CLpro and potently disrupted spike – ACE2 binding.
Recently, two components of the traditional Chinese herbal medicine Shuanghuanglian were shown to inhibit 3CLpro in SARS-CoV-2 and to exhibit potent antiviral activities in vitro.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure
People with pre-existing conditions need to look after their health. Here are several studies showing what you can do if you have any of the following pre-existing conditions:

cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension, pneumonia, obesity, dementia, malignancy, severe asthma, respiratory, liver, neurological and auto-immune diseases, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and kidney disease.

WARNING: When you’ve been on a course of anti-biotics, these anti-biotics cannot distinguish between good and bad bacteria and zaps them all. It can take up to 6 months for the good bacteria to re-populate the gut; some unlucky people can take even longer.
Do you use anti-bacterial wipes? Anti-bacterial washing up liquid, anti-bacterial cleaning sprays in your house, if you do, it is inevitable that you will be ingesting some of the antibacterial agents and they will be destroying the good bacteria in your gut.

  • Metabolic Inflexibility Is Key Risk Factor for COVID-19:
  • While SARS-CoV-2 is a rampant virus that can cause severe problems in vulnerable individuals, the real pandemic — the underlying cause that makes people susceptible to complications from the infection in the first place — is poor metabolic health
  • Aside from old age, obesity has been identified as one of the primary risk factors for being hospitalized with COVID-19 — doubling the risk of hospitalization in patients under the age of 60 in one study
  • One hypothesis for why obesity is worsening COVID-19 has to do with the fact that obesity causes chronic inflammation. Having more proinflammatory cytokines in circulation increases your risk of experiencing a cytokine storm
  • Insulin resistance is another top risk factor for COVID-19 that worsens outcomes and increases your risk of death
  • There are five primary parameters of metabolic health: waist circumference, insulin sensitivity, blood pressure, and triglyceride and HDL levels. Having three or more abnormal parameters is indicative of metabolic syndrome

Earthing, otherwise known as Grounding, is the act of reconnecting with the Earth’s natural electrical current. Unfortunately, modern living has mostly isolated us from our electrical connection with the Earth. Everything from wearing rubber soled shoes to the use of synthetic flooring materials, all block our ability to Earth.
Everyone has the opportunity to reconnect and simply walk barefoot on the Earth outside, however, it’s not always easy to kick off your shoes and spend hours each day barefoot.
“Western Civilization has been a steady march away from nature.
One of these profound strides away from earth’s healing nature occurred in the 1950’s and ‘60’s when we began wearing rubber soled shoes. In that move toward comfort and convenience we insulated ourselves from the single biggest anti-inflammatory we have – planet earth” – Dr Zach Bush, Triple Board certified physician.
Making direct skin contact with the Earth’s surface provides the body with an essential source of natural antioxidants called free electrons.

Relaxing in an icecube filled pool THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE WIM HOF METHOD

If ice is too much for you:
start with having a cold shower after hot each day:
‘There was a really interesting study showing that if people had a normal shower and then for the last 30 seconds or so every morning, they switched it to cold. The people who were having the cold showers, they reduced their sickness days from work,’ a researcher told Dr Ronx.
‘It was 30% lower in sickness rate in those people, so that’s quite a big drop.’ ‘That cold part of the shower in the morning was initiating this stress response which was helping initiate some of these beneficial mechnicisms’ the researcher continued. [source: metro.co.uk 7 Jan 2021]

Many scientific studies have confirmed the Wim Hof method works –
for example: Radboud University, The Netherlands (2014):

  • Aimed to test if the results from the first study on Wim could be reproduced with a larger group
  • Injected 12 Wim Hof Method practitioners with an endotoxin
  • Results showed that, like Wim, they were able to control their sympathetic nervous system and immune response
  • Anti-inflammatory mediators were ~200% higher,
    while pro-inflammatory mediators were ~50% lower
  • Potentially important implications for “conditions associated with excessive or persistent inflammation, especially autoimmune diseases.” (2014, Knox et. al.)

Testimonials:
“For 12 years now I have had rheumatism. Thanks to the Wim Hof Method I have been able to halve the amount of anti-inflammatory drugs”
“I have severe arthritis in my left hip. By implementing the Wim Hof Method in my daily life, I can deal with this without getting surgery. I’m almost 66 years old and by practicing the Wim Hof Method I feel much more alive”

BECAUSE WE WEAR CLOTHES AND CONTROL THE TEMPERATURES AT HOME AND WORK, WE HAVE CHANGED THE STIMULATION ON OUR BODY, THUS THE OLD MECHANISMS RELATED TO SURVIVE AND FUNCTION.
AS THESE DEEPER PHYSIOLOGICAL LAYERS ARE NOT STIMULATED ANYMORE WE HAVE BECOME ALIENATED FROM THEM, THUS OUR BODIES HAVE WEAKENED AND WE ARE NO LONGER IN TOUCH WITH THIS INNER POWER.
THE INNER POWER IS A FORCE ACCUMULATED BY FULL AWAKENED PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESSES. IT ALSO INFLUENCES THE VERY CORE OF OUR DNA” [Wim Hof]

You can join a FREE Mini Class containing 3 videos, one on each of the 3 pillars of the Wim Hof Method; Breathing, Cold Therapy and Commitment:

  • In video one Wim will teach you how to do the breathing technique, to help you reduce your stress levels and strengthen your immune system.

Food as Medicine and Fasting

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#food-medicine – updated 2 April 2021

The government needs to promote healthy eating and life style to support the immune system – this will also reduce many underlying causes of death (like obesity)
Since over 70% of bodily immune cells are associated with your gut – eating the right food has never been more important.
Here is some good nutritional advice for gut health & life style.
These natural antibiotics do not destroy the biome like anti-biotics do:

We are convinced that the elucidation of immunomodulation by food will help promote good health.”
“In this review, we describe the immunomodulating effects of various food components, including probiotics, prebiotics, polysaccharides, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, peptides, amino acids and polyphenols. Some of these components enhance immune responses, leading to host defense against infection, whereas others inhibit immune responses, thus suppressing allergy and inflammation.

Black seed, sweet orange, and Anthemis hyalina extracts all exhibit antiviral activity against coronavirus
The following substances have been researched for coronavirus disease:: Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFAs), Flavonoids, Herbs, Quercetin, Houttuynia cordata, Nigella sativa (aka Black Seed), Sweet Orange, Probiotics, Zinc, Catechin, Garlic, Honeysuckle, Licorice and Pelargonium

9 foods helping you to keep your immune system strong 💪
Garlic: fights infections, has immune boosting properties
Broccoli: Packed with vitamins A, C, and E as well as numerous antioxidants
Yogurt: High in protein. Good source of vitamins B12, B2, and D. Contain probiotics needed for proper digestion, detoxification, and immune function.
Red Bell Peppers: Ounce for ounce have 2x more vitamin C than citrus
Ginger: Reduces inflammation which helps with inflammatory ailments and sore throats.
Spinach: Rich in vitamin C, antioxidants, and beta carotene. Beta carotene is believed to help fight infections.

Almonds: High in vitamin E
Green Tea: Contains EGCG which has been shown to enhance immune function
Citrus: high in vitamin C which increases white blood cell production

Anti-Inflammatory Foods
versus
Pro-Inflammatory Foods

“Let food be your medicine” [Hippocrates]
Eating the healthy foods is the basis of your health, considering that 70% of the immune system is based in the gut. It is always best to buy whole fruit and vegetables and prepare the food at home. Cooking is more healthy than frying. Lots of raw food, some fermented, will stimulate the gut. If you can, buy organic, to avoid the agrochemicals and pollutants, especially glyphosate. Search the web – and take your pick.

Here are lists of The dirty dozen & clean fifteen foods
“Clean 15” means: hardly polluted;
the “Dirty Dozen” are heavily polluted.

How to Eat for Life and strengthen your immune system with food short lecture by physician and author Dr. Joel Fuhrman

Fasting boosts the immune system
For millennia, fasting has been one of the anchoring rituals in a variety of spiritual denominations. It can help with inflammation, obesity, insulin resistance, visceral adiposity, and endothelial dysfunction and to Heal Autoimmune Disease – which is the problem why people die with coronavirus. Intermittent fasting has many other health benefits.

Fermented Food Magic

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#fermentation – updated: 21 December 2020

About 3/4 of the human immune system is based in the gut – a complex internal ecosystem, like a rain forest, also known as biome.
Fermentation turns good food into superfood. Fermentation produces “good” bacteria called probiotics, which confer a wealth of benefits to intestinal flora when consumed, enhancing the health of your gut microbiome and boosting your immune system. It is recommended to reseed your inner ecosystem with prebiotic and probiotic-rich foods, like sauerkraut, kimchi & kefir.

So what happens when you take antibiotics or regularly use antibacterial lotions and soaps? You literally kill the good bacteria and the bad ones take over. This, in turn, disturbs the symbiosis (balance) of your microbiome which will lead to digestive issues and immune reactions. Studies have linked everything from autism to most chronic diseases to leaky gut syndrome and improper digestion. 

Kefir is a unique cultured dairy product that is one of the most probiotic rich foods on the planet. Fermented milk products like kefir can help people with milk-related lactose intolerance.  
The Whey in Kefir, sometimes referred to as liquid gold, has long been known to have powerful detoxification qualities

Next time you get sick, think twice about taking an antibiotic and drink kefir instead. A study out of University College Cork in Ireland compared Lactobacillus probiotic preparations […] The researchers discovered that probiotics worked as well as or even better than antibiotic therapy in not only eliminating the infectious agent, but in resolving symptoms!
Consumption of fermented foods has been shown to kill several different types of cancerous tumors in animal studies.
Kefir  has strong anti-inflammatory properties and was found to have both positive effects on allergies and asthma.
More: Kefir Nutritional Facts [from: “What is Kefir?“]

How to make kefir easy yourself (and boost your gut based immune system): buy organic milk + one small bottle of kefir. Add a cup full of kefir to the milk, shake, and keep it in a warm(ish) place. Shake again twice a day; after one or two days the milk has fermented into kefir.
Keep refrigerated and use some of this kefir to start the next one.

the PubMed study “The effect of kefir consumption on human immune system: a cytokine study” confirms:
“Bioactive peptides activate innate immunity by stimulating macrophages, increasing phagocytosis, augmenting NO and cytokine production and boosting the lumen levels of IgG and IgA+ B-lymphocytes.”
“The results indicated that kefir use increased polarization of the immune response towards TH1 type and decreased TH2 type response and accordingly allergic response.”

Top Five Traditional Fermented Anti Aging Foods:
Thanks to the enzymatic boost provided by living microbes in fermented foods, the secret to lifelong vitality may lie in adding these nutritional powerhouses to your dinner plate.
Benefits of eating probiotic-rich fermented foods include:

  • Improved digestion[ii]
  • Boosted immunity[iii]
  • Enhanced weight loss[iv]
  • Treatment and prevention of gastrointestinal diseases[v]
  • Faster healing from colds and flus[vi]
  • Reduced risk of heart disease[vii]
  • Improved symptoms of anxiety and depression[viii]
  • Antiaging effects[ix]

1. Yogurt
2. Fermented Vegetables  Kimchi with antiaging effects, raw sauerkraut and pickled cucumbers, cauliflower and even leafy greens like mustard and collard.
3. Kombucha, a tart, fizzy, fermented tea beverage. Kombucha’s antioxidant activity has been found to be 100 times higher than vitamin C and 25 times higher than vitamin E..[xvii] Kombucha’s high levels of vitamin C boost immunity, and its antioxidant power protects against cell damage, inflammatory diseases, suppressed immunity and tumors.[xviii] 
4. Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV, attributed with antidiabetic and antioxidant effects that make it a useful ally in the fight against diabetes.[xxi] It’s recommended to start with no more than 2 tablespoons of ACV diluted with equal parts water, taken on an empty stomach immediately upon waking 
5. Miso is a fermented soybean paste. miso does, in fact, have the ability to prevent radiation injury.[xxvii]  Made by combining a mash of soybeans and grains with sea salt and koji (a mold starter), the mixture is fermented for three months to three years. [source]

When you buy bread, choose FERMENTED bread. Souerdough is naturally fermented. “Lavain Bread” dough was naturally fermented for 36 hours before baking.

EMF, Electrosmog, 5G and Exosomes

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#5g

Shielding EMF Improves Autoimmune Disease
Electrosmog at both an extremely low-frequency (ELF) or in the radio frequency (RF) range has been found to stimulate a cellular stress response, leading to expression of stress response genes.
Research shows that Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) pathways are susceptible to interference by electrosmog.
The function of another human protein, lysozyme, has been shown to be disrupted by electromagnetic radiation… depletion of lysozyme reduces bacteria-killing ability of human airway sections by approximately fifty percent.
Electrosmog has also been shown to induce DNA strand breakages,
Blocking exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) produces significant symptom changes in 90% of patients with autoimmune disease.
www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/groundbreaking-study-shows-shielding-emf-improves-autoimmune-disease1

According to researchers Marshall and Heil (2017), for instance, “The recent release of WiGig and anti-collision vehicle radars in the 60 GHz region embody a 1000-fold increase in frequency, and photon energy, over the exposures mankind experienced up until the 1950s” (1).

Better safe than sorry: stay away from 5G millimeter waves.
5G Technology and induction of coronavirus in skin cells
publishd on pubmed.gov:
“In this research, we show that 5G millimeter waves could be absorbed by dermatologic cells acting like antennas, transferred to other cells and play the main role in producing Coronaviruses in biological cells. DNA is built from charged electrons and atoms and has an inductor-like structure. This structure could be divided into linear, toroid and round inductors. Inductors interact with external electromagnetic waves, move and produce some extra waves within the cells. The shapes of these waves are similar to shapes of hexagonal and pentagonal bases of their DNA source.
These waves produce some holes in liquids within the nucleus. To fill these holes, some extra hexagonal and pentagonal bases are produced. These bases could join to each other and form virus-like structures such as Coronavirus. To produce these viruses within a cell, it is necessary that the wavelength of external waves be shorter than the size of the cell.
Thus 5G millimeter waves could be good candidates for applying in constructing virus-like structures such as Coronaviruses (COVID-19) within cells.

This is such a strange study – who would want to create coronavirus like structures within cells? These sound just like exosomes – see below:

Exosomes are small (30–150 nm) vesicles containing sophisticated RNA and protein cargo, that are constantly secreted by all cells in vitro and in vivo. Exosomes are changing research due to the intriguing functions within human body, including intercellular communication and signaling. These extracellular vesicles are growing, both in understanding their biological functions and using them towards practical applications such as development of non-invasive diagnostics and advanced therapeutics

According to Dr. Kaufman, what the experts call COVID-19 is not really a disease and a deadly “virus” per se but an “exosome”. Kaufman argued that exosomes are the agents that can be found on the tests using RT-PCR (Reverse Transcription –  Polymerase Chain Reaction), of course the test they use for COVID-19, that is a naturally occurring agent in body cells found in different parts, including the lungs. In his presentation, he explained that exosomes are excreted by the cells when fighting various insults caused by environmental and biological toxins, stress (including fear), infection, harmful radiations, and other kinds of injuries. These exosomes, Kaufman emphasized, do not harm the body but instead provide benefits to our health by facilitating healing.
“the exosome and the virus are essentially indistinguishable from each other.” [source]

Question: if exosomes are part of us humans, transferring genetic material, and if they look just like coronaviruses: would a coronavirus vaccine interfere with the function our exosomes have? Could that unlash unwanted reactions / auto immune diseases?

We Need to CHANGE the NHS

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#change-nhs – updated: 7 April 2021

The current “health” system is too much influenced by profit orientated interests. We need a public benefit orientated system instead.
Teaching people how to live a more healthy and happy life will improve their health, and we would not need more consultants, doctors, nurses and carers. Prevention is better than any treatment.
In 2012 the largest and most detailed study into hospital deaths ever performed in the UK revealed, that almost 12,000 patients are dying needlessly in NHS hospitals every year because of basic errors by medical staff in the UK. That’s 1000 deaths / month.

A required policy change is encapsulated in this proposed slogan modification for the National Health Service:
“Get Tested ASAP – Receive Early Treatment – Save your Life”
to replace the official slogan “Stay Home – Protect the NHS – Save Lives”.

Here is a more Radical Self Care‘ video by Kelly Brogan, showing

  • Why self-care is the most radical form of activism
  • Why healing the body puts us on a spiritual path
  • The core belief that leads to a medical-free life
  • Why it’s never been more important to become your own healer

A study in June 2020 found Five million drug errors kill or seriously harm Britons every year. with a yearly death toll between 1700 and 22,000.
The drugs most likely to cause harm include the NSAIDs, clot-busters or antiplatelet drugs, anti-epilepsy medication, diabetes drugs to lower blood glucose levels, water tablets (diuretics), inhaled corticosteroids and some heart drugs, such as beta blockers.

Antibiotics, killing or preventing the growth of microorganisms, are still routinely administered and prescribed to tackle bacterial inflammation, causing many side effects resulting in breeding super resistant bugs.
Antibiotics are also associated with obesity and kill the “good” bacteria we need in out gut, wiping out the well balanced eco system in the gut, leaving the patient’s immune system severely damaged for the future.
Why are vitamin C and D not on the NICE list, and NHS staff not allowed to administer them?
The universities where doctors are trained need to be reformed, and the governemt’s health policies need to be completely overhauled. Some examples:

  • Traditional treatments and alternative treatments should be allowed and available if they have a record of success, especially if they are cost efficient.
  • Each hospital should get a nutritional expert, advising wards and catering, and updating doctors and nurses on how food can support recovery.
  • Advertisements for foods which are unhealthy could be subject to a 10% health tax, increasing each year by 10%
  • The practice of vaccinations should be reviewed by an independent panel with the aim to minimise risks and side effects.

Vaccination & Immune System

updated: 22 Feb 2021
HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#vaccines

Vaccination is advertised as protecting us from diseases by acivating an immune system response through the creation of antibodies. It interferes with the immune system by increasing immunity against a short term disease on the expenses of a slight reduced immunity to other diseases. Nearly all studies are directly or indirectly financed by the pharmaceutical industry, and the development and testing of vaccines are exempted from the gold standard of other drugs, so it is difficult to find unbiased data.

Vaccines force the immune system to go into inflammatory response but not in the proper manner – so the inflammatory response can remain unabated – confusing the immune system and making the person much more susceptible to other strains and other diseases. Vaccines dysregulate the immune system and weaken it to varying degrees. They can also interfere with our ability to mount an appropriate immune response and they can make us more susceptible to other strains and types of diseases – a phenomenon called virus interference” [source]

On 22 November 2020 an extremely rare study comparing vaccinated with unvaccinated children was published by “The Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge” (IPAK), a not-for-profit organization which exists to perform scientific research in the public interest, funded by people.
Read about it HERE and HERE.
Title:
Relative Incidence of Office Visits and Cumulative Rates
of Billed Diagnoses Along the Axis of Vaccination
by James Lyons-Weiler and Paul Thomas

“We can conclude that … indeed
the vaccinated children appear to be
significantly less healthy than the unvaccinated
.”

Figure 5. Analysis 5. Cumulative office visits in the vaccinated (orange) vs. unvaccinated (blue) patients born into the practice: the clarity of the age-specific differences in the health fates of individuals who are vaccinated (2763) compared to the 561 unvaccinated in patients born into the practice over ten years is most strikingly clear in this comparison of the cumulative numbers of diagnoses in the two patient groups.
The number of office visits for the unvaccinated is adjusted by a sample size multiplier factor (4.9) to the expected value as if the number of unvaccinated in the study was the same as the number of vaccinated. mdpi.com/1660-4601/17/22/8674/htm
Table 2) Relative Incidence of Office Visits (RIOV) and Cumulative Rates
of Billed Diagnoses Along the Axis of Vaccination mdpi.com/1660-4601/17/22/8674/htm

“Large increases in office visits were found among the vaccinated group in this group of respiratory illnesses. Our quartile representation shows consistent increases in the incidence of office visits for allergy, allergic rhinitis, asthma, sinusitis, and breathing issues with increased vaccine acceptance compared to the unvaccinated group (Figure 4A). In the most vaccinated quartile compared to unvaccinated comparison, the relative risks (and lower CI) of office visits related to these conditions were estimated for asthma (16.01), allergic rhinitis (20.64), sinusitis (11.32), and breathing issues (6.52);”
“Because there were no cases of ADHD in the unvaccinated group, the quartile analysis uses a comparison to the least vaccinated decile to avoid division by zero.”
Figure 4F below:…”families with children with autism may be inclined to opt out of the vaccination program, potentially reflecting a signal of informed choice by families excluding them from the higher vaccinated quartile.”

Figure 4 Relative Incidence of Office Visits (RIOV) axis of vaccination percentile vaccine uptake analysis: incidence of study outcome-related office visits relative to that found in the 2763 variably vaccinated compared to the 561 unvaccinated groups for each percentile of vaccine uptake on the x-axis.
(A) Autoimmune respiratory illnesses; (B) attention deficit/hyperactive disorder and behavioral issues; (C) ear pain, otitis media, and eye disorders; (D) autoimmune conditions of the skin and blood; (E) gastroenteritis, weight/eating disorders, and seizure; and (F) development delays in speech, learning, and social interactions and autism spectrum disorder. mdpi.com/1660-4601/17/22/8674/htm

Vaccination appears to have had the largest impact on anemia and respiratory virus infection on the number of office visits

The authors indicate difficulties conducting this study:
“Given negative social pressures and direct threats of undue consequences on individuals who participate in studies that cast any negative light on vaccines or the practice of vaccination, we respect their anonymity”

Like every treatment, vaccination also has risks:

SEOUL (Reuters)Nine people have died after getting flu shots in South Korea in the past week, raising concerns over the vaccine’s safety just as the seasonal inoculation programme is expanded
“Five new deaths were reported on Wednesday alone, but authorities had no plans to suspend the vaccination programme, unless investigations, including post mortems, revealed a link, which preliminary findings had not.” (21 October)

Intellihub writes: “The CDC, by definition, is a private corporation working on behalf of its stakeholders, which include key players in the pharmaceutical and vaccine industries that profit from the spread of disease, not from real prevention and cures.”
“As more and more ‘vaccination’ propaganda appears in the mainstream media, it is crucial that the American people become aware of the outrageous scam the CDC and the medical industrial complex are running,” warns the AntiCorruption Society.

The results showed a positive association between COVID-19 deaths and IVR of people ≥65 years-old [IVR=Influenza Vaccination Rate]. For the 26 European countries considered, the results indicated that COVID-19 DPMI and the COVID-19 CFR were positively and statistically significantly associated with IVR in people ≥65 years-old in 2019 or latest data available.
There is a significant increase in COVID-19 deaths from eastern to western regions in the world. [source]

“For example, for every 10 million individuals vaccinated in the United Kingdom, 21.5 cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome and 5.75 sudden deaths were expected to occur as unrelated coincidental events within 6 weeks of vaccination. 34
WHO: VACCINE SAFETY BASICS, page 77

STUDY: Flu Vaccine Raises Risk of COVID Death – Correlation Confirmed by Scientific Analysis (18 December 2020)
Countries with high coverage of influenza vaccination in the elderly had the highest death toll from the coronavirus pandemic… our findings were corroborated by a peer-reviewed scientific analysis.” 
“It is possible that influenza vaccines alter our immune systems non-specifically to increase susceptibility to other infections; this has been observed with DTP and other vaccines.”

Below is a STRONG warning what is likely to happen if people get the flu vaccine AND a second vaccine (like the coronavirus vaccine) in the same season: the deaths rate could rise significantly

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 2flu-vaccines-spike.jpg
Flu vaccine deaths according to the US VAERS spiked in 2010
when a second vaccine against Swine Flu was given.
This is a warning what is likely to happen if people who got the flu shot
will receive an additional vaccine against coronavirus.
This chart was presented by Brian Hooker, CDC whistleblower in an interview

This article discusses previous vaccine safety experiences:

  • People who received the trivalent influenza vaccine during the 2008-2009 flu season were between 1.4 and 2.5 times more likely to get infected with pandemic H1N1 in the spring and summer of 2009 than those who did not get the seasonal flu vaccine
  • A double-blind, placebo-controlled study on ferrets confirmed the results, showing the seasonal influenza vaccine did worsen symptoms after subsequent exposure to the H1N1 virus
  • A 2011 study found the seasonal flu vaccine may weaken children’s immune systems and increase their chances of getting sick from influenza viruses not included in the vaccine
  • In a 2012 study, children receiving inactivated influenza vaccines had a 4.4 times higher relative risk of contracting noninfluenza respiratory virus infections in the nine months following their inoculation
  • A 2020 study found people were 36% more likely to get some form of coronavirus infection if they had been vaccinated against influenza
  • studies have shown that when you get the flu vaccine, you may become more prone to flu caused by influenza viruses that are not contained in the vaccine, or other noninfluenza viral respiratory illnesses, including coronavirus infections
  • Conversely, researchers10,11,12 recently found that common colds caused by the betacoronaviruses OC43 and HKU1 might actually make you more resistant to SARS-CoV-2 infection, and that the resulting immunity might last as long as 17 years.
  • SARS-CoV-2 is one of seven different coronaviruses known to cause respiratory illness in humans.13 Four of them cause symptoms associated with the common cold: 229E, NL63, OC43 and HKU1.
  • In addition to the common cold, OC43 and HKU1 — two of the most commonly encountered betacoronaviruses14 — are also known to cause bronchitis, acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and pneumonia in all age groups.15 The other three human coronaviruses — which are capable of causing more serious respiratory illness — are SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2.

A randomized placebo-controlled trial in children showed that flu shots increased fivefold the risk of acute respiratory infections caused by a group of non-influenza viruses, including coronaviruses. … it is possible that influenza vaccines alter our immune systems non-specifically to increase susceptibility to other infections; this has been observed with DTP and other vaccines.

A systematic review32 by the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews found that to prevent one case of influenza-like illness (defined33 by the World Health Organization as an acute respiratory infection), the NNT [number needed to treat] for inactivated vaccines was 40. To prevent a single case of confirmed influenza, the number needed to vaccinate (NNV) was 71. [source]

Another study Influenza vaccination and respiratory virus interference among Department of Defense personnel found:
“Examining non-influenza viruses specifically, the odds of both coronavirus and human metapneumovirus in vaccinated individuals were significantly higher when compared to unvaccinated individuals (OR = 1.36 and 1.51, respectively) (Table 5).
Conversely, all other non-influenza respiratory viruses had decreased odds in the vaccinated population”
[ ]

“Over 200 viruses cause influenza and influenza-like illness which produce the same symptoms (fever, headache, aches and pains, cough and runny noses). Without laboratory tests, doctors cannot tell the two illnesses apart. Both last for days and rarely lead to death or serious illness. At best, vaccines might be effective against only Influenza A and B, which represent about 10% of all circulating viruses.” [Source: Cochrane Summaries].
We can expect EXACTLY the same for coronaviruses: covid-19 will have mutated into around 200 strands after one year (read more in the next chapter) – and then there are also the usual yearly coronaviruses, each with mutations…

The fact checker website fullfact.org wants to debunk the claim: the “flu kills more people than covid-19”, revealing interesting details:
“If we look at the underlying cause of death data for 2019, we can see that 1,213 people died specifically from flu, which is just 4.6% of the 26,342 who died from either influenza or pneumonia.”
That means: 95.4% in the “influenza / pneumonia” category died from pneumonia – or:
for each flu death, 19 people die of pneumonia.
So a pneumonia vaccine would make MUCH more sense than any flu vaccine.“the ONS reports the number of “deaths involving COVID-19”, which means the number of death certificates that mention Covid-19 somewhere, whether or not it was the underlying cause.
Pneumonia is usually caused by a bacterial infection, but it can also be caused by a virus such as flu or the one that causes Covid-19… many people who die with Covid-19 have pneumonia as well, so the ONS explains that “deaths where both were mentioned have been counted only in the COVID-19 category”.
More interesting information about how fact checkers manipulate data is in the Covid-19 Statistics article in “We’ve Got It All Wrong…

The US Department of Justice issues a report on vaccine injuries and deaths every quarter. In 2015, there were 211 severe cases for the 3 month period from 5/16/2015. 86 of the settlements were listed in this report, 65 of the 86 settlements were for injuries and deaths due to the flu shot; the majority of flu shot injuries were for Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS).
Here is a short video debunking the flu shot narrative.

First published in April 2015. The H1N1 vaccine fiasco ordered by the (corrupt) WHO Director General is of relevance to the current debate on a COVID-19 vaccine.

GlobalResearch reports on 20 April 2015:
“The 2009 swine flu vaccine caused severe brain damage in over 800 children across Europe, and the UK government has now agreed to pay $90 million in compensation to those victims as part of a vaccine injury settlement.This is the same swine flu vaccine that the entire mainstream media ridiculously insists never causes any harm whatsoever”
“The vaccine caused narcolepsy and cataplexy in hundreds of children. Both are signs of neurological damage caused by vaccine additives which include mercury, aluminum, MSG, antibiotics and even formaldehyde.”
in 2009, the Norwegian health authorities urged everyone, not just at-risk groups, to receive vaccinations after the World Health Organization designated swine flu a pandemic.
“Norway has seen more than 170 reported cases of children developing narcolepsy after receiving the Pandemrix vaccine,” reports the Global Post. “The government has so far paid $13 million to 86 victims, including 60 children…”
“those children who are damaged by vaccines end up being big profit centers for the same pharmaceutical companies that damaged them in the first place.”

Please read more in the next chapter: “Covid-19 Vaccine?

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) about vaccination:
“In the future, we will eliminate the soul with medicine. Under the pretext of a ‘healthy point of view’, there will be a vaccine by which the human body will be treated as soon as possible directly at birth, so that the human being cannot develop the thought of the existence of soul and Spirit.
To materialistic doctors, will be entrusted the task of removing the soul of humanity. As today, people are vaccinated against this disease or that disease, so in the future, children will be vaccinated with a substance that can be produced precisely in such a way that people, thanks to this vaccination, will be immune to being subjected to the “madness” of spiritual life. He would be extremely smart, but he would not develop a conscience, and that is the true goal of some materialistic circles.
With such a vaccine, you can easily make the etheric body loose in the physical body. Once the etheric body is detached, the relationship between the universe and the etheric body would become extremely unstable, and man would become an automaton, for the physical body of man must be polished on this Earth by spiritual will. So, the vaccine becomes a kind of arymanique force; man can no longer get rid of a given materialistic feeling. He becomes materialistic of constitution and can no longer rise to the spiritual”

The above quote is from the Rudolf Steiner lecture series “Fall of the spirits of Darkness” “Changes in Humanity’s Make-up”  (Lecture 5), archives GA177

Coronavirus Vaccine?

https://healthtruth.info/we-need-to-focus- n-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#covid-vaccine – updated: 5 February 2021

Is the new mRNA gene therapy technology used in Covid-19 vaccines safe? mRNA vaccines have never been licensed before.
RNA is the only molecule known to recapitulate all biochemical functions of life: definition, control, and transmission of genetic information. Since the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-1) outbreak in 2002 there have been numerous coronavirus vaccine animal studies conducted: either the animals were not completely protected, became severely ill with accelerated autoimmune conditions, or died, primarily attributed to what is called Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE).
The SARS-CoV-2 virus (which can cause covid-19 symptoms) is from the same cronavirus family as SARS-1.
Experimental vaccines for SARS, MERS, HIV, and other diseases have not been proven effective and safe for humans.

mRNA vaccines are coated with PEGylated lipid nanoparticles (polyethylene glycol). This coating hides the mRNA from our immune system which ordinarily would attack and destroy kill any foreign material. PEGylated lipid nanoparticles have been shown to imbalance certain immune responses and can induce allergies and even autoimmune diseases.

Why no Conspiracies here?

When your house is on fire, you don’t call the police to investigate, but the fire brigade to extinguish the fire, evacuate the building to save lives and prevent further damage.
If the fire is a burning deep frying oil pan, do NOT pour water on it, as it will make it worse, but suffocate it with a fire blanket!
Investigating “what caused the fire?” or “who started the fire?” or “who paid the one starting the fire?” (conspiracy theories) need to wait until the fire is extinguished.

The same applies to the coronavirus “pandemic”: we first need to make sure we use the correct treatments and procedures to ensure the situation will not get worse (like using ventilators or lockdown).
How the virus came into existence and who is behind it will surface in due course, and any misconduct will hopefully be dealt with by proper investigations and courtss after we have dealt with the virus – and the virus “cure”: politics.

Inform and empower yourself; “knowledge is power”, research INDEPENDENT science, and check any government advisers [& any research institute, newspaper or TV station] for bias, for example on Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Here is an in-depth analysis by the OFF-Guardian:
