tons of Americans are. With our medication culture you get something that takes advantage of your basic physiology then add body chemical altering drugs in mass quantities to it..and you get problems. Found this is the comment section of karl’s latest post:
Coronavirus and medication
From the French Government:
The virus has just been shown to enter the lung alveolus cell through the ECAII receptor. When it binds to it it overexpresses it and kills the alveolar cell. Hence everything it produces. Men have more receptors than women, Asians more than Caucasians and people who take anti-hypertensive drugs such as antiECAs and especially Anti-ECAII have a brutal overexpression of the receptor and therefore are more susceptible to infection and infection is more serious.
The serious cases of young people are patients who have taken anti-inflammatory drugs at the beginning of the disease. Aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, voltarene (diclofenac), etc. must be avoided, because they favor the grave forms. You should only take Paracetamol.
Do not take ibuprofen or anti-inflammatory if you suspect Covid. In France, four serious cases of young people without previous pathology have in common the taking of ibuprofen. Apparently it makes the infection develop much faster.
They are reminded that they should NOT take Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, or aspirin for flu or fever symptoms. In Italy and France they have discovered that people who have died from Covid-19 have taken ibuprofen and causes the virus to be potentiated five or more times.
Anyone who has symptoms should take only and exclusively PARACETAMOL (except, of course, medical prescription), drink plenty of water, and very often (if possible sips every 15 minutes). We also have natural antivirals such as Garlic, Ginger, Propolis, and almost all aromatic plants (Mint, Melissa (Torongil), Rosemary …) Cinnamon, Curcuma, Fruits with Vitamin C … in direct infusion.
I’ve also heard from various sources that large daily doses of Vitamins C and D3, as well as zinc, have been reported to be efficacious.
I am currently on zero prescription drugs…mainly because i cannot afford them. I have been anti-drug(both legal and “illicit”) for quite some time. Now read the above carefully. Those on blood pressure meds, who are male, and Asian are at the highest risk. Guess who is dying the most? Guess what information out of Italy is not being readily reported? Italy has one of the largest Chinese diasporas in the world…and where are the biggest death counts? I take actual cinnamon every day to help with my own diabetes(a known risk factor) mainly to control nueropathy. I am on zero prescription drugs. Now that i have confirmed from multiple locations(not governmental ones) that anti-inflamatories) can REALLY kick up the virus I am switching to Tylenol based products for the foreseeable future. This data also correlates with my own experiences. I had some NASTY bug in FEB that took me down..and i mean not getting out of bed down…for a week. Now that i look back once i cracked a fever and took some ibuprofen is when things really took off. I did not feel unable to breathe but it did not take me long to figure out whatever I was doing was not the right idea. I let the fever go(as i stopped taking ibu) and while my fever came back(it never got about 101) I also began to recover instead of feeling worse every time I took the ibu. Never had that happen before but if you listen to your body it will tell you when you are not doing the right thing.
This leads to my next point. China of all places is now testing for the antibodies and not just the virus. This is a good thing as folks that have recovered should be the ones placed on the front lines and allowed back into the population to start allowing the economy to recover. The government and media are NOT HELPING. The truth is we are way farther into this thing than what we are being told. If that’s the case we should already be at the doomsday scenario they are all afraid of…….an excerpt from Karl’s article is below. Please read the entirety at the link…it’s vey informative.
