Researchers now realize that vitamin D has very important roles in addition to enhancing calcium absorption and bone growth. There are vitamin D receptors on the vast majority of immune cells (B cells, T cells, and antigen-presenting cells). These immune cells with vitamin D receptors modulate the innate and adaptive immune responses. Deficiency in vitamin D is associated with increased autoimmunity and an increased susceptibility to infection. It is critical to supplement vitamin D during the fall and winter as 85-95% of people are deficient. In addition to vitamin D, magnesium and zinc are critical minerals that augment vitamin D in supporting the immune system. The pandemic has been more about low vitamin D, obesity, and lack of good nutrition than a dangerous virus. Obesity is a problem because It turns out that vitamin D tends to go to fat cells rather than immune cells, which reduces overall immune system protection.
Dr. Ryan N. Cole is the founder of Cole Diagnostics Laboratory Sciences and has extensive experience with COVID-19. In a recent video of a presentation he gave at the Idaho State Capitol, he explained that by law, the federal government cannot approve a vaccine if a treatment exists to fight the disease. This law, coupled with the fact that the National Institute of Health (NIH) and Dr. Fauci hold the patent on the Moderna vaccine, goes a long way in explaining why no drugs have been approved to fight SARS-CoV-2. Doctors have demonstrated to their colleagues that several therapeutics have been shown to work well if employed within the first three days of symptom-onset. Unfortunately, the medical system and government regulatory agencies have not approved them for general use. Remdesivir, convalescent plasma, and monoclonal antibodies all work well in the initial treatment of the disease. But rather than treat patients with these therapeutics when they come into the emergency room, the standard of care approach has been to tell sick patients to go home until they get worse and have to be hospitalized. By that time, the virus has massively replicated to such an extent that these approaches are no longer effective because the disease is now causing severe respiratory issues. It looks like the focus was always on reaping the financial rewards of making a new vaccine. It's a shame to see medical authorities attacking, smearing and trashing the reputations of fellow medical doctors and scientists who tout the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) or another wonder drug, Ivermectin.
The two drugs just mentioned above disrupt the ability of the virus to replicate. They stop it dead in its tracks. This allows natural killer cells to come in and kill the infected cells; this completely eliminates the disease from the body and creates natural immunity with no side-effects. I've written about HCQ here. Let me mention a few facts about Ivermectin. It has been shown to reduce hospitalizations due to SARS-CoV-2 by 75-85%. It stops the virus from replicating. In addition, it works really well on several other viruses besides COVID-19. It is effective against influenza, West Nile, HIV, Dengue, SV40, and Zika. It was developed in the 1970s to fight parasites in Africa that caused River Blindness (Onchocerciasis) and Elephantiasis (Lymphatic Filariasis). These diseases caused blindness and disability in millions of people in Africa. The drug is safe and there is also a long track-record of use with billions of people throughout the world for the last 50 years. As an off-label drug (like the malaria fighting HCQ), it has proven itself extremely effective against SARS-CoV-2.
I have included a link to see a short lecture by Dr. Ryan Cole on vitamin D and Ivermectin, click here. As you can see, a few days after writing this article, YouTube took it down. Dr. Cole is a licensed medical doctor and COVID-19 expert who was speaking to legislators in his home state. It is hard to believe that in the United States of America we are not free to hear from various experts. To allow the tech/social media CEOs the power to control what we can hear and see to keep one narative is a scary position to be in. The right to free speech is guaranteed under the Bill of Rights of the Constitution. I, for one, want people to make decisions they feel are best for themselves. When voices are silenced, even the most credible, that limits our freedom to choose. Fortunately, there are other platforms now that do not censor opposing views. One of them saved Dr. Cole's presentation and you can freely view it here.
