I got mono really bad in high school, and not only did the school not close -- THEY MADE ME MAKE UP THE WORK I MISSED!

Mono knocked me out along with 30% of the marching band. Did school close?

I've had mono three times. "You can't get mono three times!" Huh? It's a virus. Viruses work like that. The first time I was 11. It lasted two years, no lie. They were sure I had Leukemia and my parents even made arrangements at St. Jude's (it was in the early 70s so I'd be dead for sure). Then, just like that (snapping fingers), it went away. Well, not just like that but my white cell counts started going in the proper direction. Now that I'm a parent (and grandparent), my parents must have been terrified. Assuming they loved me, that is. ;)

Mono is actually Epstein Barr (EBV).. It can be reactivated with a poor immune system because it’s in the Herpes viruses family. I know people getting reactivated EBV from the clot shots. So there’s that…

Thanks for this. Never knew chicken pox was in same family as Epstein Barr. Again, pays off to stay healthy & educate yourself about nutrition & vitamins as you won't learn much from your conventional dr. , at least I haven't.

Same family? All of this storybook narrative we have been fed, you have to go to look at their lab work, they are looking at something else and selling it with this 230 year old hypothesis from and 18th century farmer.

I challenge you to find a pure isolate of any of these viruses. Janine Roberts' explains the basic fraud of viral science in her blog :

That was truly a fascinating question... how does a nanoscopic viral particle suddenly commandeer its host cell which is much larger and more intelligent than a dead virus to suddenly start producing proteins ? This does not make any sense at all !

Wonder what it does to Fibromyalgia? There is no real treatment that is effective, Valium just lowers the Pain a little. I take a handful of supplements. Bone building, now Covid ones, D3 and Zinc have been a staple since I discovered Earl Mendel's Vitamin Bible. C I have to watch runs BS up. Zinc is the Master Mineral whereas E is the Master Vit.

C does not raise blood sugar. The molecule is so similar to the glucose molecule that it will be read as blood sugar with a glucose meter. I learned this from the Riordan clinic, they used to do very expensive tests for the level of ascorbate in the blood after an IV treatment, then discovered they could just use a glucose meter and take a reading before and immediately after the infusion. The difference was the level of ascorbate in the blood.

That's really amazing. I learned from watching a Dr. Suzanne Humphreys (sp?) presentation that animals make Vit C from glucose. And they make A LOT of it.

I recently became aware of a treatment called Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN). It treats lots of auto-immune diseases, as well as other chronic conditions, and might be worthy of your research. YouTube has lots of videos from knowledgeable/professional sources.

Expand full comment

Neurologist hasn't suggested it. I can see why, Commonly reported side effects of naltrexone include: streptococcal pharyngitis, syncope, anxiety, arthralgia, arthritis, dizziness, drowsiness, fatigue, frequent headaches, headache, joint stiffness, nasopharyngitis, nausea, nervousness, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic attack, pharyngitis, posttraumatic stress disorder, sedated state, sinus headache, vomiting, induration at injection site, malaise, pain at injection site, and tenderness at injection site. Other side effects include: muscle cramps, muscle rigidity, muscle spasm, stiffness, depression, and twitching. See below for a comprehensive list of adverse effects. Read down further, it would be on my Reaction list in just a few pills.

I know when my BS either goes up or drops. And more than 500 mg does raise my BS. The first drop to 60 scared the crap out of me. My meter reads higher, and I hate the finger pricking.

FMS HITS MUSCLES, JOINTS, NERVES Fatigue, Gastropresis already has me vomiting, Meniere's gives me Migraine's. WAY TO MANY SIDE EFFECTS. Niece has the worse form of LUPUS/LYMES and years of generic HCQ Plaquenil has damaged her kidneys/lungs.

My father was an old school MD; GP, Army Air Corp Surgeon; came home from WWII and became an eye, ear, nose and throat specialist in a small Southern town. 52 years ago when I had just graduated high school he took me aside and said, "I don't know what you think you want to do with the rest of your life but don't even consider medicine unless you're just in love with the idea of healing people because soon physicians will no longer be allowed to "practice" medicine. They will only be allowed to "prescribe" medicines and modalities as allowed by bureaucratic doctors who work for the government and have never treated patients in the real world. Before you die medicine in America will have been transformed into an abomination" he was something of a prophet.

Covid has revealed a troubling lack of intellectual curiosity in the medical field.

Some truthful documented points. I would state perhaps it was happening in the late 1990s also, i state this because i recall before the scam-demic seeing a video of an old doctor or i was actually talking to one (kinda foggy right which one it was) stated how many new doctors today, they want to treat work like a 9-5 job and make their money instead of actually wanting to help people for the love of desiring to help people get better and are not interested in putting in the hours anymore as the older doctors do because it is not truly what they love as older doctors do etc.. they just want to do their shift, get paid etc and sure they might care about their patients, but are not willing to put in the work as old doctors did for the love of being a true physician.

Thank you for sharing that, wow how blessed you were to have a father who had such experiences and then told you what he did. I wouldn't state a prophet, but actually learned through his work what Rockefeller did in the 1940s and on from there because what you described, when you investigate how the Rockefellers took over medicine in the West, what you stated is a quick summary of part of what the Rockefellers did. Look up "James Corbett" and "Rockefeller" and "Medicine" and see the really good report James did on this, he is a good journalist, alumni quality and i think you might appreciate his work on this very important matter.

In our town there were several doctors just as dedicated and ethically motivated as he was. There are still some, but most are now practitioners of institutional medicine which frankly is ethically challenged due to the fact that the patient takes a backseat to the institution.

About 95% of the people in the world have EBV in them, except it is now dormant. An illness, such as Covid or flu, can "resurrect"it, though symptoms are not usually in the same form. It is believed that Covid long haul is caused by this or the return of chicken pox, which also stays in the system and can become shingles if the immune system is overly challenged. It is also called post viral syndrome. After getting Covid, I had long haul caused by EBV. After Ivermectin which helped a lot, I still had issues, so my doctor recommended Banderol and Monolaurin. It has taken some time, but I feel nearly back. These viruses are "enveloped" which means they have a protective lipid type coating. Monolaurin helps break up that coating, while Banderol fights the virus. I could not find any research on Banderol for EBV, but my doctor says it works on it. He is privy to a lot of information from other doctors as well as of course his clinical experience.

My son had mono twice; both times knocked the wind out of his sails for MONTHS. The second time he had “double mono”, with active EBV and CMV infections at the same time. (They thought maybe he had HIV, God forbid.) He made a full recovery both times.

I think they put some of our parents in charge of the Covid treatment. I remember when I was young and I would say I’m sick and I can’t go to school today, my parents would tell me unless you are on deaths door you are going to school. Sometimes, I think I was on the deaths door but I still went to school. Evidently, they are running the Covid treatment now as well. 😳😁

You should've heard my mother if I complained about cramps.

I called her from school and told her I had to come home. She showed up at school with a package of Midol. "Here. Take this," she said.

She added, "You're going to menstruate for another 30 years, so you'd better find a way to deal with it."

Funny thing: I didn't have cramps after that.

My 9th grade P.E. teacher told us , as we sat on the gym floor after roll call, that if we had cramps, it meant we weren't physically fit. I guess that meant we better get up & exercise or do whatever she said. We just looked at each other. No one complained or disagreed with her but this was decades ago.

Absolutely Mark.

Missing track season is nothing compared to the current challenges faced by the typical HS and college students. I was stunned to learn about 2 recent suicides at my alma mater (student body of only 4K!) Of course the institution did their part with heavy handed isolation and “remote learning.” All for a group with nil risk. Your point about stolen youth cannot be overstated.

This man made travesty has affirmed our actions with our 4th and 7th graders: travel, play dates, sleep overs, school plays, recitals, sports, pep rallies, etc. all unmasked (except air travel, sigh). So far so good. Kids seem well adjusted and eager for the next social event.

My wife got sick. She's convinced it's covid. I said, "who cares?" She said, she was exposed to someone last week who tested positive for covid. I said, "and?" She said the kids might be sick with it too and they should stay home from school. I sent them to school and said, "they feel fine right now and they aren't sick and even if they do, they will get better" She said she should get tested. I told her she shouldn't because refusing the test is the first step in getting out of this. Even if you in fact are sick with covid, you have an immune system and it works. And by the way, this woman got vaccinated, so she supposedly is "protected" and gets whatever benefits the vaccine gives (if any). I told her to just take some tylenol and get on with her life. You're right, people need to be mentally, physically, and spiritually stronger than they are. Our society is sick, not with covid but with blind sheepishness.

Nice job. Unless someone is sick enough to require a doctor's care, a test is not required. Overtesting is the problem, not the solution.

Expand full comment

There's a movie called "Covidland - The Lockdown" Highly recommended. One of the things the movie said is that the first part of getting out of this mess is refusing the test. There was recently a murder-suicide (husband killed wife and then shot himself) in Colorado where both deaths ended up in the covid death count. They had both tested positive for covid within the 28 day period prior to their deaths. Similar story with a motorcycle accident in FL. There's tremendous impetus to tie a positive PCR test to a death FROM ANY CAUSE. Furthermore, I know of two instances where people were in line to get the PCR test, , filled out the paperwork, waited for several hours, left and said they'd come back some other day and then days later were contacted and told they were positive -- THEY HADN'T EVEN HAD A SAMPLE TAKEN. There's strong forces that are pushing testing and then tying ANY of the positive tests to covid. 40% of all deaths happen in nursing homes. These people are dying naturally but since they tested positive, the death is attributed to covid. We've completely destroyed the firewall between dying with covid and dying from covid.

My daughter is a nurse in a skilled care/nursing home. Over the last couple of years she has been in two different facilities. Most people in these hospitals are in very bad shape when they come in, and a great many come there to die. Almost everyone there has multiple comorbidities. Covid has run through these hospitals, but it wasn't disaster. Nurses and workers sometimes got Covid...my daughter did in Nov. 2020, and some of the patients died just as they were going to soon anyway, but the numbers weren't really more than usual pre-Covid. Perhaps Covid pushed them over the edge a bit quicker, but not necessarily. I'd bet most were reported as Covid deaths, though.

I think we need to keep close close track of these cases . All my detractors keep on pointing out the 800000 “deaths from covid” in America. One of the substacks, I think it’s el gato malo’s Stack that recently boiled the numbers down to show how far off (even conservatively) that might be. Between absolute lies (like the ones you point out) plus the “deaths from covid” vs the “deaths with covid” plus the vaccine deaths that I think some are trying to say are covid19 deaths plus the fact that if early treatments were taught And practiced we’d see 60 to 85% CONSERVATIVELY below that, you get my meaning.

Expand full comment

Consider this, 7% of all covid deaths have no comorbidities. 93% of all covid deaths (or "deaths involving covid" as they are called) have at least one commorbidity. And even within that 7%, I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of the 7% are elderly and died of natural causes. I have a family member that died at nearly 100 years of age because he stopped eating and drinking in the weeks before he died. Had he tested positive for covid within those weeks, he would have been deemed a covid death.

When you get a bonus for a COVID death, all deaths look like COVID deaths. 30K per is a number that I have heard from multiple sources in “healthcare”.

This reminds me of a Teams conversation with a colleague in the week who was telling me about the urgent need to get tested when she found out she had been in close contact with another colleague who had tested positive; neither of them were unwell. When I asked her why she cares about any of this and what the ultimate outcome would be of her testing she confessed that she did not know, but she thought she should do it anyway .. because that's what you're expected to do. This is a highly educated, very well read, multilingual lawyer. She went on to say that she hoped that the restrictions and testing would never end as she likes to to stay at home all the time; I left the conversation quite depressed.

Thanks for the advice but we rely on our immune system around here. Other than Tylenol we suck it up and get over it with our amazing natural antibodies and healthy lifestyle.

I agree but remember, vitamin D is really important for lots of things, not just covid. Most Americans don't get enough, and if you live north of the latitude of Atlanta Georgia you *can't* get enough vitamin D from the the sun in winter even if you spend the whole day outside naked. And it's hard to get enough through diet alone.

We do take vitamins around here. Not necessarily to fight covid but as part of being healthy. You are right about Vit D and sun, I'm in NYC and during the winter I probably get nearly zero sun and when I am outside, every inch of me is in winter clothing except my face, and even that is partly covered with a winter hat. The summer's are awesome and I get a ton of sun down south in FL and TX. I wonder if the lack of Vitamin D in the winter contributes to these nasty flu and colds that run rampant every december.

I think people work sick all the time. As a matter of fact, if I'm sick today, I don't tell anyone because people freak out, they want PCR tests, they want quarantine and all that. I see people sick at work all the time, even today, so that hasn't changed. Unless you work for the government, most employers can't afford to continue to pay for you to stay home. And most employees, can't afford to sit home and not collect a paycheck. So people have and will continue to work sick. I found that working sick actually made me better faster.

Last year I had two employees who kept getting “exposed” to the virus. This was back when the state said you had to quarantine for two weeks and we had to pay them. Funny they never got covid but all those mysterious exposures kept happening. From March to about August neither one worked a full pay period.

When people in the past had an employee in the office call in sick with the flu, they didn't send everyone else home because they might have been exposed. That's not even talking about people who came into work sick. Now the whole office probably has to be tested, and possible a business shut down. There weren't mass deaths during those days. This is being treated as the second coming of the bubonic plague, and I'm not sure that it is being treated this way for health reasons.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. That’s how we have survived as a species. All things being equal, give your immune system something to do. You’ll be better for it .

Soon many will have weakened their immune systems without disease. Stupidity and msm scientist can do that to a person. Turn off the idiot box! Much of the info is right here knuckleheads!

Yes, every cold and flu season, as soon as someone gets a sniffle, they run to get a very inaccurate PCR which provides a false positive and continues to feed the "case count" for the government, which uses this as justification for more vaccines and lockdowns. A non-ending cycle.

Yes and no. Do I understand you right? This is your wife you are talking about? And she is vaccinated? Right? Ok if that’s wrong, forgive me for misunderstanding. But if she’s vaccinated, according to Dr. Yeadon, Dr. Mike Williams and a host of others, she could very easily have a compromised innate immune system due directly to the vaccine. Want the links? Alex, Steve Kirsch, has them , hey Yeadon himself is on substack as is Malone. Check out their substacks. While I have NO sympathy whatsoever for Pharma, almighty tech, MSM and Govt, I have a bit more for those individuals who thought they were doing the right thing. They could easily be in a world of hurt in a lot of ways. I have close family member who yelled at me about ivermectin being the proverbial horse med and told me to stop sending all that “internet” stuff as if to say we (Alex et al) are all fakes. Ps I was sending Peter McCullough, MD videos, and all factual data most from MD’s . Not some hill billy from backwater. But if she ever got sick I’m NOT going to lambast and judge her. She’s dead wrong but have a LITTLE sympathy.

Well, first of all, she is the only one that got vaccinated. The kids and I steered clear of that. Second, she got the JnJ vax, which doesn't work off of the mRNA technology as it is designed more like a standard flu shot. She didn't get jabbed for health concerns at all, she got the vax to keep her job. Plain and simple. This was when the vax came out and she was sick as a dog when she took it. Anyway, so far they haven't pushed for boosters yet but I am keenly aware of the damage the Moderna and Pfizer two-dose mRNA vaccines do to your immune system and I know of Yeadon's work very well. Many individuals thought they were doing the right thing and were unaware of the harmful side effects because any negative vaxx news was censored or shadow banned on social media, and mainstream media. People who spoke out about negative vaccine side effects were blasted by these "fact checkers" who are just operatives for leftist. The left is pushing vaccine use and pfizer and moderna and all the PCR testing companies are happy to get behind it and profit. This is odd because democrats used to dump on all those "greedy pharmaceutical companies" and now they're in bed with them. I am sympathetic to her being sick but I have no patience for her wearing a mask, wanting to keep healthy kids home because they might be sick and not know it, wanting to get tested because she was near someone that tested positive, and wanting to go to a doctor because she's got flu symptoms. Since Mar 2020, we've known that this virus mainly affects the elderly that are sick and/or obese. My household is entirely composed of young healthy people, so when anyone under my roof gets a cold or a flu (or covid for that matter), I have no patience for hysteria.

Ok ok. Thanks for replying. I see your point. It’s like the relative of mine who yelled at me. I can see some of her dilemma. She’s being absolutely bombarded with vac misinformation (better to call it deliberately PARTIAL info, deliberately Pharma and govt and media withholding the dangers), and being manipulated to get her 10 year old vacd. So I have sympathy. But when she absolutely will not listen to any other answer and demeans the ivermectin proof as “horse dewormer”. That’s like what you are describing. Very very hard to elicit my sympathy in re people that refuse. I have THREE other close close friends that did the same. One is even an MD. On the other hand I am close friends with two MDs who do “get” it and one RN wife too. I have a personal relationship also with an MD and his wife a PA who are listening to me but they are so very pro vac in general and they haven’t yet seen anyone harmed terribly by the vac so I think they have some respect for what I am saying but they aren’t changing their stance. I respect them far more than the ones who don’t listen at all.

The mask issue is just crazy. Realistically I have seen they provide this tiny little bit of protection in some cases. But so little..... and wearing them outside? Stupid, stupid, stupid, did I say stupid?

Its difficult to speak to some people in the medical profession. They are so indoctrinated to believe that everything they are doing is unequivocally helping people. Consider this, there was a time in medical history where bloodletting was deemed good healthcare. I frankly don't care if the vaccine is saline solution, I'm not putting something in my arm that I don't believe in be it harmful or be it useless. I have taken medicines in the past and I believe some medicines do work. I also got lasik surgery for my eyes and that's a miracle that had my vision fixed. I take antihistamines when I get allergies. I've done the research, some medicine/procedures I believe in, others I do not. I just don't blindly follow medical professionals. Consider this: Fauci is a medical professional.

Well, this was two days ago. She's taking tylenol and continues to work (she works from home). Her fever is under control and whatever it was, it was mild. No PCR test, no incident report, no telling everyone she was in contact with that she's now sick. She has a cold or flu or something and she'll eventually get better. Our society has gone crazy over what is basically another flu strain. The research shows that unless you're elderly and sick and/or obese, you've got nothing to worry about. Go about your lives people, there's a whole world out there waiting for you to fulfill your purpose. Enjoy your christmas and new year and don't even talk about covid -- it's a complete 100% bullshit hoax.

yes and the president of my ukulele group just made an executive decision to cancel our next two practices because of "raging surges"- makes me crazy!!!

Expand full comment

"raging surges" is people getting sick with the flu during flu season. If you get sick, stay home until you get better -- as we've always done throughout history. I don't mind people telling me to stay home if I'm sick, I'd do that anyway and I'm happy to oblige. But right now, I feel 100% awesome and I'm in fantastic shape. So don't tell me to wear a mask, get a PCR test, get vaccinated, quarantine and stay home, and miss out on work, play, prayer, dining out, and enjoying my life. You've only got one life to live and every day is a blessing. Don't waste any of it on this lie called "social distancing" -- the biggest theft of humanity in the modern era.

Expand full comment

There are several docs out there who postulated and have written about the statistics even about measles and polio, that it wasn’t the vaccines that conquered those diseases, that primarily hygiene and nutrition beat them and the numbers were going way way down long before the vaccines ever came into existence or widespread use.

You got to be a real man and stand your ground. When I see my wife in a mask I tell her to take that ridiculous shit off her face and to "stop being a retard." I didn't let her get tested and I didn't let her keep the kids home because they "might" be sick. You got to be the beacon of rational thought. When people ask me if I'm vaccinated I tell them I got the common sense vaccine. Yesterday, I was in Target and security came up to me with a box of mask and told me I needed to wear a mask. I told him, "no thank you." He said, it's store policy. I told him, "I don't wear a mask" and then just stood my ground and continued shopping. I did the same thing in the bank when the security guard came up to me with a box of masks and told me to wear a mask. I haven't been kicked out of a store yet but I'm willing to get kicked out of a store rather than pander to some stupid mandate. Stand your ground people, you got to have balls, this includes you ladies too (at least metaphorically).

My husband and I keep asking, 'Where are all the men???' Including fathers demanding they not mask our kids all day at school. Thanks for standing up for what's right. And I feel bad for all the men on here with terrified wives... Come on, ladies, let's use our brains please!!

I’m offered a mask each time I go in my nearby Walmart. I just take it and carry it in my hand. 🤣

Expand full comment

Don't even take the mask. Say "no thank you" Be nice, be calm, be respectful and say no. If they continue to push the mask, tell them "I don't wear masks." That's worked for me. Another one I've heard is, "I don't wear masks for health reasons" (reason being the mask gets filthy and is a wet substrate for all sorts of germs and nastiness and you should be freely breathing fresh air without a saliva-soaked piece of face diaper over your pie hole). If a customer challenges you, respectfully say "no." Remain calm and continue to say "no" and just stand there. There's nothing a customer can do except get mad and the more calm you remain, the more frustrated they get. These karens are trying to get a rise out of you, don't give them the pleasure. Say "no" and keep your peace. And don't get caught up in an argument about mask efficacy and justifying your position. "No" is sufficient and all you need to say.

the feminization of boys. The toxic masculinity myth espouse is very damaging to young boys. Every natural action of young boys is villified or medicated. Phoney disorders that used to be boys being boys. I have 2 teenage sons, I did my best to let them be boys. Fighting, roughhousing, was all encouraged by me. They were made to play outside as much as possible. And luckily for me had other neighborhood boys with like minded parents, to this day they have huge wiffle ball and football games with friends pretty much daily. My youngest has hard time focusing at school work, always did. I just encouraged him to try harder, no visits with behavioral specialists or making excuses for him. Would never medicate my kids for phoney adhd disoredr or whatever bullshit they call it. Have always told them to never be ashamed of what they are, or where they came from. Dont fall for the gender bullshit, boys are boys and girls are girls period the end. Besides, most women want a real man, not some metrosexual soy boy.

"It’s incredibly ridiculous how fragile most people are, mentally, physically and spiritually. They should be ashamed."

I presume you know, as one main cause to what you point out above, this is more of a reality since the internet went popular in the late 1990s. The internet has truly caused the ability to amplify and multiply greatly the first world pampered, privileged, sheltered, silver spoon and platter raised, instant gratification seeking, incontinent, self-worshipping, self-adulating, self-lauding, self-congratulating, generation 'me', generation 'poltroon' type mentality and thus we are witnessing in our time of history, that when a society abandons the true God and becomes so technologically advanced and because of that technology so many have it so easy where everything is almost at the touch of a button thus being "blessed" making themselves "gods" in their lunatic quest for 'godhood', well because so many born into such a society has been sheltered from the harsh realities of real life that many experienced before the technological paradigm, well... this breeds a generation of weak, fragile, brittle, cowardly, pompous vain people who would curl up in fetal position immediately wanting to die if the Chinese army invaded.

There's actually some compelling evidence that cold water therapy is good for the old body and immune system; the whole shocking the body, blood rushing to the extremities again after crowding around the heart, etc. It's thought to act as a sort of reset (excuse my language).
