Excerpt – glyphosate entering the ocean may chelate manganese and leave coral unable to form their protective layer of mucus containing sulfated glycoproteins: “A protective layer of mucopolysaccharides called mucus is secreted by corals, and it has been characterized as containing sulfated glycoproteins similar to chondroitin sulfate,  which play an important role in controlling pH and the transepithelial movement of electrolytes and water, just as is the case in vertebrate mucosa. Mucus pathology is implicated in coral disease leading to mortality, particularly in the Caribbean. Thus, an interesting hypothesis that should be considered is that glyphosate chelation of Mn is a crucial factor in the worldwide coral die-off.” (Samsel, Seneff, 2015)
Manganese is important:
“Vitamin D deficiency has reached epidemic proportions in the US and increasingly around the world in recent years.  In a large population study in the US, Bodnar et al.  found deficient levels of vitamin D in 83% of Black women and 92% of their newborns, as well as in 47% of White women and 66% of their newborns, despite the fact that over 90% of the women were on prenatal vitamins. This deficiency is associated with an increased risk to bone fractures, likely due to impaired calcium homeostasis.  It is even likely that care-takers are being falsely accused (“Shaken Baby Syndrome”) of abusing children in their care who suffer from bone fractures.  These children are highly vulnerable to bone fractures due to impaired bone development. Bone fractures in the elderly due to osteoporosis have also risen sharply recently in the industrialized world.  The cause of a surging incidence of hip fractures across multiple age groups remains a mystery to medical personnel. 
Samsel and Seneff [248,249] proposed that the current vitamin D deficiency epidemic is caused by glyphosate, due to glyphosate’s interference with CYP enzymes. The metabolite that is usually measured, 25-hydroxy vitamin D, is the product of activation in the liver by a CYP enzyme that is also critical in bile acid formation. However, there is a larger problem with bone development due to impaired Mn homeostasis.” (Samsel, Seneff, 2015)
Selenium is also important (selenoproteins):
“Dopamine suppresses thyroid stimulating hormone, and therefore dopamine insufficiency can lead to overactive thyroid and potential burnout of the thyroid gland.  This problem is compounded by the fact that thyroid hormone itself is derived from tyrosine, one of the three aromatic amino acids that are negatively impacted by glyphosate through disruption of the shikimate pathway. The thyroid gland also depends critically on selenoproteins as antioxidants.  Glyphosate’s depletion of both selenium and methionine will lead to reduced bioavailability of selenoproteins. It is conceivable that all of these factors working together can explain the strong correlation of glyphosate application to corn and soy with thyroid cancer [Figure 7], as well as the association between maternal thyroid disease and autism. ” (Samsel, Seneff, 2015)
Glutathione is depleted, Manganese is needed for its production, along with other nutrients and Nrf2 promotion and/or a healthy circadian cycle:
“Experiments exposing immature rats to Roundup®, whether via exposure to the dam during pregnancy and lactation or via acute exposure to the pup for 30 min, demonstrated lipid peroxidation and NMDA receptor activation in the hippocampus, indicative of oxidative stress and glutamate excitotoxicity.  Acute exposure increased the release of glutamate into the synaptic cleft, and depleted GSH.
Glutamine synthase depends upon Mn as a cofactor, so depleted Mn supplies would lead to a build-up of glutamate that cannot be returned to the neurons using normal channels. Multiple sclerosis is associated with both depleted Mn in the cerebrospinal fluid  and depleted GSH synthase in the white matter lesions. ” (Samsel, Seneff, 2015)
Why should we care about coral? Because we and coral have similar biological pathways. Nature loves a good design and sticks with it across the plant and animal and microbial kingdoms. Also it would be better to be good stewards of the planet, instead of being an invasive parasite that destroys everything in its path.

Includes chimeric spike gene sequences involved in fusion entry of cells, and Ehden Biber’s latest post with FOIA information from Pfizer including the Omicron BA.1 (“Riltozinameran”) genetic sequence.
Hard to understand info for non-geneticists from Ehden – thanks for sharing maybe some geneticists will translate for us: The Sequence; We now have Pfizer’s Omicron BA.1 (“Riltozinameran”) genetic sequence, alongside other important information, thanks to a FOI request to the UK’s regulatory body, the MHRA. – by Ehden Biber – Sense of Awareness (substack.com)
I had just added a gene sequence image to something I had written, and was searching posts and not finding it (and getting frustrated ;-) when I remembered where it was – Gp41 in SARS-CoV-2 spike, so here we are back with the delicious and royal fruit.
Pomegranate is so awesome it can take on a multi-fanged genetic chimera:
1) Blocks entry at the ACE2 receptors and preserves ACE2 function.
Pomegranate peel extract blocks entry at the ACE2 receptor which also helps protect the function of ACE2 receptors, and pomegranate extract also inhibited “the activity of thevirus 3CL protease.” (Tito, et al, 2020) Lung edema and other symptoms of severe Covid19 are also symptoms of lack of ACE2 function. As the infection spreads to cells with ACE2, the spike blocked receptor is dysfunctional. The juice/fruit likely helps but the peel is more potent, more concentrated in phytonutrients and has additional hydrolyzable tannins.
2) Inhibits NET formation, and inflammasome creation.
Inhibits NET formation (Kirchner, et al, 2013) which would promote inflammasome production – which kills good cells when it is an over-reaction. The SARS-CoV-2 virus spike protein, the E protein section, causes activation of NLRP3 Inflammasome creation, and the resulting increase in inflammation can also signal further creation of them. (Wong and Saier, 2021) An allergy like sensitization seems to occur. Macrophages from people who had been sick with COVID-19 reacted to exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and inflammasome production occurred. Cells from people who had not been pre-exposed to SARS-CoV-2 did not react to cause inflammasome creation. (Theobald, et al, 2021)
3) Inhibits fusion of HIV-1 and entry into cells by membrane fusion. It may do the same for SARS-CoV-2.
*I am not sure if “HIV-1 entry inhibitor” is the same as fusion inhibitor for preventing the splitting of S1 from the S2 portion of spike. (Neurath, et al, 2004)
“Punica granatum (Pomegranate) juice provides an HIV-1 entry inhibitor and candidate topical microbicide.” (Neurath, et al, 2004)
If it is, pomegranate phytonutrients could inhibit the fusion cleavage site from opening and freeing the S1 subunit which then can block nAChR function and has prion like domains and a galectin-3 like sequence. So, preventing S1 release would protect cholinergic function, reduce misfolded protein risks, and reduce risk of galectin-3 over-stimulating excess angiogenesis (blood vessel formation or doubling/splitting).
It was noted by (Wu Zhang and Leng Yap, 2004) that HIV-1 gp41 and SARS-CoV(1) S2 proteins are similar in structure. The gp41 protein helps HIV-1 fuse directly with cells in order to infect them, (Chen, 2019), which SARS-CoV-2 can also do. The S2 portion of spike forms a wedge like shape and directly invades a cell’s bilipid membrane layer for the purpose of membrane-to-membrane fusion with the viral particle. The sequence “GB1” is discussed and a Spike SARS-CoV-2 Fusion peptide, see Fig. S1. (Koppisetti, Fulcher, Van Doren, 2021) If pomegranate can prevent HIV-1 membrane fusion than maybe it is preventing separation of the S1 from the S2 subunit – more research is needed.
Background info by (Wu Zhang and Leng Yap, 2004) on the roles of the two parts of a coronavirus species’ spike protein – S1 (“cellular reception recognition”) and S2 (fusion of the viral and host cell membranes for entry):
“Coronavirus spike protein plays a very important role in virus entry, virus–receptor interaction, variations in host range and tissue tropism. The S proteins of majority of coronaviruses are cleaved into two functional subunits, S1 and S2. Liu et al.  indicated that the S protein of SARS-associated coronavirus (SARS-CoV) also forms S1 and S2 domains. The peripheral S1 portion is responsible for cellular receptor recognition, while the membrane-spanning S2 portion mediates the fusion of viral and cellular membrane, hence S protein determines the specificity of host and virulence of coronavirus . Similarly, there are two non-valently associated subunits in the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) envelope glycoprotein, gp120 and gp41, gp120 directs target-cell recognition and viral tropism through interaction with the cell-surface receptor CD4, while the membrane-spanning gp41 promotes fusion of the viral and cellular membranes so that viral contents are released into the host cell .” (Wu Zhang and Leng Yap, 2004)
The chimeric S1 subunit can be free and effect receptors elsewhere in the body or be released in exosomes in exhaled breath or sweat, and body fluids. It has the snake venom toxin-like nAChR cholinergic blocking effect and has a galectin-3 look alike sequence. Preventing S1 separation would reduce harm.
4) Acts as a modulator for inflammation & immune function,, promoting or inhibiting as needed for the situation.
Protects against misfolded protein conditions – the delphinidin (Noda, et al, 2002) and other anthocyanidins (Masci, et al, 2016), (Qu, et al, 2015) that give pomegranate its purple red hue, may help stabilize proteins as allosteric modulators and many phytonutrients or nutrients can act on receptors as agonists or reverse agonist (less often). (Silva, et al, 2019)
6) Promotes Nrf2 which helps promote DNA damage repair, glutathione production, and immune function.
Promotes Nrf2 which helps promote glutathione production, immune function, and DNA damage repair and inhibits inflammatory cytokines including IL-6 (Karwasra, et al, 2019) and NFkB. (Rasheed, et al, 2009). Nrf2 and pomegranate peel inhibit mast cell degranulation which would reduce inflammation, cytokines, and histamine. (Parisio, et al, 2020) Antihistamines tend to help in CoV treatment. Nrf2 inhibits mast cell degranulation by promoting SIRT4. (Hu B et al, 2020)
7) Contains potent antioxidants in addition to promoting Nrf2 and our own glutathione production.
Pomegranate peel contains potent antioxidants and diuretics (the tannins/EGCG/catechins) which help with detox – have several servings earlier in the day if ill and drink plenty of water, or once a day as a preventive.
The fruit juice and seeds provide some of the benefits for reducing inflammation and protecting the brain, but the peel contains more of the phytonutrients with potent antiviral and antioxidant function. Antioxidant power so strong, pomegranate peel extract can be used as an anti-corrosive for steel. (Rashid, et al, 2017) Too much is a pro-oxidant, use in moderate amounts. The diuretic effect is a clue when you may be getting too much, or just a good amount if puffiness is a problem.
8) Protects against liver, kidney, and brain damage risks from hyperinflammation.
Protects against liver, kidney, (Middha, et al, 2013) and brain damage risks from (spike) hyperinflammation. (Ahmed, et al, 2014) (Morzelle, et al, 2016) With a healthy microbiome, metabolites urolithin A and B can cross the blood brain barrier and reduce neuroinflammation. (Kujawska, et al, 2019) EGCG helps promote new growth of hippocampal cells. (Itika, et al, 2020) Urolithin A may be helpful against aging, metabolic dysfunction, IBD, and neurodegenerative disorders by promoting mitophagy and removal of defective mitochondria leading to improved health of mitochondria. (Singh, et al, 2022)
Species that help produce urolithin A and B may include Firmicutes, Clostridiales and Ruminococcaceae family and Akkermansia muciniphlia. Having more Bacteroides in ratio to Firmicutes was associated with non-production of urolithin A in response to 8 oz of pomegranate juice. A 500 mg supplement product, MitoPure, led to much greater increases in plasma levels of urolithin than the juice, in a crossover self-controlled clinical study. (Singh, et al, 2022)
Firmicutes are the main butyrate producing species, Ruminococcaceae also produce it, and Akkermansia muciniphlia produce other short-chain fatty acids. They are anaerobes fermenting undigested starches within the colon and the short chain fatty acids help feed the colon cells. (Parada Venegas, et al, 2019) *Probiotics provide species that populate the small intestines. We need to eat adequate resistant starches and zinc to support the anaerobe of the colon.
9) Improves gut health, membrane and cardiovascular health and promotes a beneficial microbiome balance of butyrate producing species.
Tip – think of skin health, gut health and blood vessel/cardiovascular health as all connected – similar tissue, slightly different issues.
Promotes balance between Firmicutes and Bacteroides species, butyrate producing microbial species in the gut. Excess Firmicutes is associated with obesity and excess Bacteroides with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Pomegranate led to a decrease in Firmicutes in an animal-based study about a gut pathogen. (George, et al, 2019)
“These results suggest that consumption of pomegranate polyphenols altered the microbiome, making it more resistant to displacement by infection with Cr, indicating that pomegranate polyphenols may mitigate the pathogenic effects of food‐borne bacterial pathogens.” (George, et al, 2019)
When we protect our gut, we are also protecting our brain, because they are connected via the large vagus nerve. It can act as a superhighway and allow chemicals to enter the brain from the gut or enter the gut from the brain. Parkinson’s Disease seems to involve this connection. Pomegranate peel extract helped a brain inflammation condition by modulation of the species in the gut. (Lu, et al, 2020)
“Pomegranate peel extract ameliorates the severity of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis via modulation of gut microbiota.” (Lu XY, et al, 2020)
Promotes the microbiome. Sepsis – did not help in one animal model. Pretreatment for a month with pomegranate may have increased gut microbiome leaving the animals at increased risk of sepsis effects when surgery was performed. (Tavasoli, et al, 2014)
Summary: The juice/fruit provide many of these benefits but not all, the peel is more potent in the anti-viral & other benefits.
Pomegranate peel extract blocks entry at the ACE2 receptors and preserves ACE2 function.
Inhibits NET formation which leads to (killer) inflammasome creation.
Inhibits fusion of HIV-1 and entry into cells by membrane fusion. It may do the same for SARS-CoV-2.
Acts as a modulator for inflammation and immune function, promoting or inhibiting as needed for the situation – restoring balance.
Protects against misfolded protein conditions (prions).
Promotes Nrf2 which helps promote DNA damage repair, glutathione production, and immune function.
Pomegranate contains potent antioxidants in addition to promoting Nrf2 and our own glutathione production.
Protects against liver, kidney, and brain damage risks from hyperinflammation.
Improves gut health, membrane and cardiovascular health; and promotes a beneficial microbiome balance of butyrate producing species.
The juice/fruit provide many of these benefits but not all, the peel is more potent in the anti-viral benefits.
Ellagic acid/EGCG alternatives:
If pomegranate/peel is not available to you, then sumac/Zataar contains similar phytonutrients and so do Goji berries, and red raspberries a smaller amount and maybe black raspberries too: “The seeds of raspberries contained 87.8% of the ellagic acid,” (Daniel, et al, 1989), strawberries had more in the pulp than the seeds. Green tea also contains some of the catechin benefits ~ 3 cups per day provides about 200 mg of EGCG which is a typical amount found in supplements of EGCG. If gut issues are also an issue though, green tea may cause discomfort due to the oxalate content.
We should listen to Geert Vanden Bossche, PhD, DVM:
Geert says we need to treat everyone prophylactically to stop breakthrough infections & slow the mutation rate. (substack.com) a post on my SubCtack links to his audio/post.
Early treatment works – we need to prophylactically treat everyone with the basic Z-Stack or preferred equivalent. Preventively taking supplements means you are treating somewhat at the first exposure. Then if signs of a cold occur, increase the vitamin C and anti-viral/iron chelators like quercetin, pomegranate peel product/tea and/or black seed oil.
I also include intranasal rinse or spray, and negative ionizers for air quality control in addition. Stop the exposure in the nose where the body has IgA antibodies that react against any coronavirus. Once the RNA species reach the lung, they have mutated somewhat and are harder for the body to fight.
Negative ionizers are something that should be in public places.
Anyone in power over a facility – please see what you can do to add it. CoV spike is positively charged and will clump and fall from the air. Sweep and mop more often. Part of the risk is the air above big crowds – think of it as a circulating swamp of everyone’s mutation variants, which then all can rapidly mingle and the whole swarm can quantumly it seems, all mutate to a new (worse) variant and make the whole crowd sick. Karl Sirotkin, PhD’s work.
Golden Silkworms in Pandora’s Box – by Harvard2TheBigHouse (substack.com)
Pomegranate peel and fruit is an “antidote” for many diabolical features of the patented computer-generated sequence that is causing harm. It happens to be pomegranate season in the Northern Hemisphere. Are we collectively going to start using the fruit and peel for its full benefits? Or continue waiting for a rich person to suggest it? Or wait for Tedros and the WHO to use a little money to research pomegranate peel extract against SARS-CoV-2?
If you want medical doctor/researcher recommendations about the benefits of pomegranate, read this open access peer-reviewed book: Pomegranate, (IntechOpen), 2021. In a chapter on the antimicrobial benefits, Celiksoy and Heard did a phenomenal job creating extensive Tables of research trials showing antimicrobial potential of pomegranate peel extract or whole fruit extract. The Tables include which species were targeted using pomegranate extract of what dose, standardized to 13% ellagic acid, or other extraction method details are listed. (Celiksoy and Heard, 2021) It is just one Chapter in an open access peer-reviewed (long) book: Pomegranate, (IntechOpen), 2021.
Pomegranate and early treatment can work – if you use it.
It can’t work if you don’t use it.

The whole alternative point about there being “no virus” because of Koch’s Postulates – is simply wrong regarding RNA type viruses. RNA viruses – they are a group of variants rather than all being genetically the same organism, like a malaria parasite is always a malaria parasite in some stage of growth. And there is definitely a chimeric spike protein which was patented in 2018, – in the US by Ralph Baric out of University of North Carolina.
The chimeric spike protein has the characteristics of a computer sequenced molecule with many hazardous sequences that are also patented. It is bioweapon-like in the changes, rather than natural mutations, which tend to be single nucleotide changes rather than a short string of nucleotide changes that happen to be specific patented sequences for known toxins. All of the CoV injections use the same modified version of that chimeric spike protein, which NIH gave a modified sequence of to all the vaccine companies – and they all used it.
The bat coronavirus used as a carrier for the chimeric spike protein, in itself, is not that big a problem to a person of reasonable health, compared to anything designed to include the chimeric spike, because that is toxic to us in many ways and the injection version seems to be a worse cholinergic blocker – the snake venom toxin part is a paralytic – Ralph Baric’s patent, modified by the U.S. NIH.

Fibrinolytic – protects against blood clotting risks and can help reduce congestion. Bromelain, serratiopeptidase, nattokinase, others.
Iron-chelator / Antimicrobial-anticancer-anti-inflammatory – reduces damage from oxidative stress and free iron, or identifies iron rich cells for removal. – Artemisinin, Sweet Wormwood tea, many others.
Antioxidant support – infection and inflammation increases need for antioxidants. Spike also can inhibit our own antioxidant production pathways – Nrf2. Phytonutrients in many common foods and beverages can help promote Nrf2. Vitamin C, liposomal glutathione, NAC/whey protein/Aged Garlic Extract, alpha lipoic acid,
Methyl B12*, folate*, choline*, (*methyl donors), thiamine, (B1), niacin, (B3), and all the other B vitamins – inflammation and infection greatly increases need for B vitamins and spike may reduce methyl Bs and increase neuropathy risk – tingling fingers. Methyl donors help protect against DNA damage. Niacin can help reduce inflammation and increase endolysosomal removal of cellular debris, like spike or virus or dead cell particles which increase oxidative damage risk.
Topical magnesium sulfate – the sulfate and magnesium help cardiovascular risks. Spike reduces absorption of magnesium in the GI tract. Low magnesium increases risk of stroke or heart attack, and muscle cramps, tinnitus, headaches, anxiety, depression or a short temper and anger.
Vitamin D & sunshine & blackout curtain darkness at night (or cloth to cover the eyes). Our circadian cycle has many functional changes every wake/sleep cycle in addition to melatonin production at night. Dosing of vitamin D is best as a prevention, daily attention to a healthy baseline. Megadoses should not be needed – just in advance of an allergy or autoimmune risk is the key factor.
Autoimmune problems are for life as soon as they develop. Remission can occur with less of a daily symptom problem but then can flare up if re-exposed to the antigen. Avoidance of the trigger food or toxin is needed – which means spike protein too.
While making our own melatonin means we are also helping all the other circadian repair and growth functions, the high dose niacin/melatonin protocol can help to fight infection and reduce inflammation. Gradual increase in dosing over months is needed ideally but short term immediate use for an infection may be needed. The gradual use as prevention or LongCovid symptoms may help by allowing the body to have time to cope with the level of inflammation that is present. Only so much cellular crud can be removed in any one night/day cycle.
Protein – Biology seems like magic but is little machinery made out of proteins, carbohydrates, fats and other nutrients and chemicals. We need adequate protein to make the little machines, and enzymes or cellular structure proteins. In severe inflammation with Covid, a ketone based diet may be helpful or at least low carbohydrate intake in comparison to the calories from fats and protein. If kidney damage is present then excessive protein is also to be avoided, but some is still important.
Nucleotides to make RNA or DNA are plentiful in a diet with animal products but would be a need in a vegan diet. Nutritional Yeast Flakes or Deactivated Yeast (wheat product- gluten). We need to make RNA regularly in order to make any other protein from the DNA pattern. So for growth and repair or to make antibodies, we need to make RNA first.
Mushrooms or the edible yeasts would help with spike risk to the Dectin-1 receptors. Th Beta-glucan in the edible fungus activates them, as they protect against fungus. In a normal fungal infection avoiding mushrooms would be recommended, but in spike situations it is protecting the receptors from spike lodging in them instead. It would keep them functioning to protect against other fungal infections. Medicinal mushrooms can also help immune function in other ways too. Avoiding glyphosate would be protective as it increases risk for fungal infections and a low carbohydrate diet would be protective as fungus grow on carbs. *Prevention is key, fungal infections are very difficult to get rid of once established.
Sialic Acid is decreased by spike. Making more is the need, we can’t really get it through the digestive system. It is electrically active and needs to be made, or replaced with soluble sialic acid that is in the area. It helps prevent the rouleaux stacking of blood cells. Adequate nucleotides in the diet help and N-acetylglucosamine (NAG) – available in supplements or insects. Grow your own with supplies from a pet store – after you learn more about it first maybe.
Frequency/vibration therapy can help or harm. Certain frequencies can break the delicate membrane of a virus or bacteria while not harming the human cells, (Rife). Other frequencies can help our own quantum health and well feeling. Strong EMF can increase inflammation though and may increase risks from graphene oxide in the CoV injected people. In general it is good to turn off EMF sources during the healing sleep hours of your life. Faraday cages are available that help reduce EMF from WiFi routers.
Example Rife healing frequencies for autoimmune conditions – I did find this helpful on a flare-up day: Autoimmune Diseases Cure Healing – Rife Frequency | Pure Isochronic Binaural Beats – Sound Therapy (youtube)
Omega 3 fatty acids – EPA & DHA. They help reduce inflammation, are needed for membrane and eye health and are part of our quantum health – our energy fields. Vegan or vegetarian sources are likely inadequate as the conversion rate to the DHA/EPA forms is low. Krill oil or algal oil are sources in addition to fatty fishes like salmon, tuna and sardines.
There are more. Trace minerals are important, and microbiome health – which means zinc, fiber and resistant starch are important. SARS-CoV2 can infect bacteria and the GI tract and appendix are potentially a risk for ongoing relapses. The injected LNPs may be entering microbes too and adding chimeric spike to their surfaces too. There has been an increase in appendicitis cases since CoV injection rollout.
We don’t know what isn’t allowed to be researched. Thankfully some independent researchers persist anyway.
There are many things that can help health, and many modern foods and habits that are harming our health. Avoiding processed foods helps reduce pesticide and herbicide intake and reduces inflammation as ultra-processed foods promote Metabolic Syndrome and weight gain per recent research. (43)

#EarlyTreatmentWorks – prevention regularly is best bet as early means first 3-5-7 days of first symptoms ~a cold, not let it get a week later & you went to work throughout. Increasing dosing frequency rather than megadosing at once->24/7 protection ~ 3-4 x~8 hrs or 6 hrs apart
Questions I was asked: How Bad Is The Sp!ke? – (@_nikolakii_)
How bad is the actual virus vs how bad is the vaccine?
The actual virus is not that bad except for the chimeric spike added to it. Those who get infected and are unvaccinated without comorbidities have an approximately 99 percent recovery rate.
However the lingering LongCovid rate is more significant and frequently disabling. People have had difficulty getting help or answers.
Autoimmune antibodies against receptors that spike was lodged in may have been formed leading to self destruction of whatever protein or receptor type it was when antibodies against it were created by the person’s immune cells.
Allergy like or other excess histamine symptoms might result from overactive mast cells. Over production of retinoic acid, the active form of vitamin A, might also lead to symptoms of mast cell overactivity. The dietary solutions can help a lot but are big changes – avoid all vitamin A foods and rich carotenoid sources of fruits and vegetables – seriously, but can help prevent long term liver and kidney damage and neurologic symptoms. Histamine producing or containing foods also need to be avoided, again, it can help a lot though.
Fatigue from anemia of chronic inflammation is likely, and elevated ferritin levels with fairly normal to low hemoglobin level might be lab results. Iron chelator herbs can help fairly quickly, then continue. Artemisinin is the one I used, am and pm for a few months and then once a day for a year or more.
Now I have been using Wormwood in tea with some better tasting medicinal herbs & (small piece or a couple) pomegranate and (can be several larger pieces, is mild and fruity) mango peel. Sweet Wormwood is less bitter and no thujone which can be a seizure risk if too much is consumed. I add thyme to balance the GABA effects from the Wormwood/thujone, fennel seed adds flavor, and dandelion leaf & root for anti-prion help.
Nerve tingling or pain in fingers and toes or pain, turning to reddening and swollen is a hypoxia of the tissue problem. Gentle exercise helps keep circulation going.
Epsom salt soaks help with a well absorbed form of magnesium and sulfate, both beneficial for cardiovascular and tissue health.
An imbalance of cannabinoids is present due to the inflammation, so CBD alone would make the imbalance worse. THC products would help provide the type that is needed, and it helps reduce the hypoxia.
Thiamine, B1, is also needed in amounts greater than available in food when there is inflammation and it can help hypoxia at the higher doses, 300 mg or more, seek guidance for larger amounts. Other Bs should also be taken in to provide balance – Bs are a team, work together within the mitochondria and in other functions. Niacin and other info in this: Spike Summary Spreadsheet, Telomerase, Circadian Cycle and Nrf2, (and niacin, also a link at the end to a post focused on niacin & melatonin).
Malnutrition in general is a risk factor for demyelination nerve damaging conditions. Low CoQ10 is also a risk factor. G12. Demyelination.
The vaccines are worse in a variety of ways with the most basic being that the spike used in all the brands of injections was modified, supposedly to be better, but it has worse health effects as it is on the surface of the human cells – it would not be there in an infection, only on the virus, or within a cell being formed to make virus with. Virus hijack the cell machinery for replication of it instead of normal functions. See last post: Adaptive Immunity, ADE, and Antibodies.
The modified spike is a worse nicotinic acetyl choline receptor blocker – the gene sequence has a section like snake venom toxin which causes paralytic effects by inhibiting cholinergic messaging (acetylcholine is a brain neurotransmitter it also activates choline receptors). Blocking nAChR receptors – would lead to the hearing and vision problems, excessive menstrual bleeding, colitis, miscarriage, myocarditis. The cholinergic blocking #nAChRs can cause sperm motility issues and the excessive menstrual symptoms may indicate risk of female infertility/early menopause.
Nicotine activates function and would protect-block- the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors from spike protein. Choline might work too, but for me, I needed nicotine to resolve my colitis-like symptoms.
Exhaled breathe or sweat from vaccinated people may contain free S1 subunit of spike proteins and can spread passively to non-vaccinated people. Exosomes, membrane packets with spike on the surface, may also carry the genetic directions within.
Exosomes are similar to pheromones and act as messengers within the body from one part to another but also can be exuded to share with the outer world too. There has to be a matching surface marker for another person’s cells to accept the exosome or pheromone, or on a cell within a person if it was acting as a messenger between different areas of the body.
The spike affects ACE2 in a way that leads to pneumonia-like edema of lung tissue
Citrus peel or pomegranate peel can help. The Citrus Peel is more effective for clearing congestion and opening airways. The Pomegranate peel helps protect ACE2 receptors. G13. Pomegranate. G14. Citrus Peel.
The vaccines increases the risk of fungal infections, other viral infections or flare up of Herpes or shingles, and cancer risk.
Dectin-1 receptors protect against fungal infections and spike blocks them, eating mushrooms or Nutritional Yeast Flakes would activate them instead, lodging and protecting them from being available to spike protein. *this is spike specific and to prevent fungal infections, rather than being a standard treatment for fungal infections – which might include a recommendation to avoid eating mushrooms.
CD8+ T killer cells are reduced in number and lymphocyte count might be low on a lab test. CD8 cells help fight virus and cancer cells.
Cancer risk is also increased by inhibition of the Toll Like Receptors. (2)
Magnesium and methyl donor B vitamins, Nrf2 promoting phytonutrients, pomegranate and citrus peel, and most of the other things mentioned, also would be protective against cancer risks.
Reducing sugar and total carbohydrates helps Covid infection or cancer risk.
Reducing glutamate seasonings would also reduce cancer risk. Those are also usually histamine problem foods – may need to kick them out of the diet anyway – headaches may be a symptom if that is a problem.
The vaccines contain prion like sections, so misfolding protein conditions may be a risk Parkinson’s disease ( clumps called Lewy Bodies, 1), Alzheimer’s & CJD/Mad Cow Disease.
Delphinidin (black beans, black sesame seeds or rice, Blue Lotus or Blue Butterfly Pea flowers) and pomegranate peel, dandelion leaf or root and/or pine needle tea may reduce this risk.
Avoiding organophosphate pesticide and glyphosate herbicide residue may also help reduce risk.
The jab increases toxicity of bacteria endotoxin LPS & SEB. Spike has a SEB like endotoxin sequence. Both endotoxins increase inflammation.
Activated charcoal, Bentonite clay, and water, may help remove SEB toxin (& maybe Spike Protein.
Inflammation is increased in many ways by the spike destruction of tissue, changes to receptor function, the bacterial endotoxin SEB and LPS from negative species of the microbiome.
Nrf2 promotors would help reduce inflammation; vitamin C and alpha lipoic acid, other mitochondria support and high dose niacin/melatonin protocol could also.
SARS-CoV-2 can infect bacteria, so again, a healthy microbiome is critical in a number of ways. Beneficial, zinc fed, species also help colon health and reduce infection risk with butyrate production. Butyrate can activate the niacin receptor and can also help reduce inflammation and increase removal of cellular crud, like free spike protein, by white blood cells with endolysomes, see earlier link for an image. Spike Summary Spreadsheet, Telomerase, Circadian Cycle and Nrf2
Vegetables and high fiber grains, beans, nuts, seeds, can help the microbiome flourish along with zinc and iron – though avoiding iron rich foods is helpful for other inflammatory issues mentioned in the first section in the discussion of LongCovid.
TRP channel disruption – at the ankyrin repeat domains.
Risk to hair cells in hearing and the vestibular system (sense of balance and steady tracking of vision – following the bird in the sky).
Epsom salt soaks, for a well absorbed topical source is needed as TRP channels in the GI tract are needed to absorb magnesium ions and spike disrupts them.
The increased risk of autoimmune antibodies forming against receptors the spike is lodged in on the cells means that there can be a life long autoimmune attack on those receptors afterwards. If anti-phospholipid antibodies formed, then the person’s own immune cells would be led to attack and remove endocannabinoids, – phospholipid molecules. And symptoms of the numb fingers and toes may involve endocannabinoid disruption during LongCovid. See: Cannabinoids & blood vessels – and LongCovid. Anti-phospholipid antibodies could by breaking down even more endocannabinoids than the inflammation had caused.
Boosters every 3-six months may keep the person in an autoimmune-like flair up all of the time practically as the vaccine spike is formed on human cells, so immune cells may be attacking the person’s own cells and causing massive dysfunction and tissue damage which might be seen as skin rash or bruising.
