Do you have a COVID-19 plan? Do you know if your doctor will even see you if you suspect you have COVID-19 or you test positive?
What medications and treatments are available to you by your physician so that you could treat yourself and not let the infection get so bad that you have to go into the hospital and be put on a ventilator?
The media keeps pushing the pandemic porn, scaring people about cases, hospitalizations and deaths but what we don’t hear about is how to treat ourselves at home so that we don’t end up at the hospital.
Dr. Anthony Fauci’s presentation at the Yale Global Health Network on October 26th didn’t mention early home treatment at all. How crazy is that? He only talked about contagion control, sheltering in place and waiting for a vaccine. And this is the genius that Biden wants to keep around if he becomes president.
Dr. Peter McCullough, a public health expert, researcher and cardiologist at Baylor Heart and Vascular Institute in Dallas, Texas, says that “early home treatment can be the only method for reducing hospitalizations and deaths once an individual gets sick. The hospital should only be a safety net for survival. It should not be the first place of treatment.”
McCullough and another physician who tout early treatment, both came down with the coronavirus and are following their own protocol which includes an anti-viral called Ivermectin which he says has caused a huge improvement.
McCullough definitely thinks early treatment is key to keeping the worse of the virus at bay. I just wish that Fauci and others in the medical field held the same views.
Over the last year, we’ve learned on our own about publicly available options that might be able to help us. The options talked about are Vitamin D (making sure you aren’t deficient), Zinc, Azithromycin, aspirin, prednisone, melatonin, anti-viral drug Ivermectin (IVM) and early HCQ (Hydroxychloroquine).
Do your own research and discuss options with your doctor so that you aren’t scrambling at the last minute to figure out how to treat yourself.
Boosting your immune system seems to be key for those who aren’t infected yet but for others who get the virus, more options need to be made available for home treatment.
On the WEBMD.COM website about treating COVID-19 at home, they recommend rest and drinking fluids. Others say to use “over-the-counter” medicines to treat symptoms.
Not a real comforting list of suggestions when we could be taking actual medicine so that our symptoms don’t get worse.
The good news is that there are a few places that are taking at-home treatment seriously.
A Minnetonka-based UnitedHealth Group has announced a large study to enroll people in 46 states who will receive a new monoclonal antibody treatment for patients. It’s a drug therapy similar to the one that was used by President Trump.
The treatment is called bamlanivimab and it’s manufactured by an Indiana-based company called Eli Lilly. Patients with mild-to-moderate virus cases can receive it via an hour-long infusion early in their disease.
According to the company, he antibodies are designed to block the pandemic virus from attaching to and entering human cells. So far, results of the treatment are encouraging and this new study will tell us more.
At home treatment is a strategy that should have been implemented long ago to keep people out of the hospitals.
