I got so many questions about this medication after I discussed MATH + protocol.⠀ ⠀ Unfortunately, more and more people are getting sick with the 🦠 and not all can just reverse their risk factors (diabetes, high blood pressure, high inflammation) overnight. With the use of the supplements, I was able to prevent hospitalization in my family but the downtime was still 3-4 weeks of misery. Hence, I wanted to share this information with you all!⠀ ⠀ I v e r m e c t i n: ✅ please, share for educational purposes with friends and family! This information also may save someone’s life! It took me a few hours to study the available information and relate it in an understandable format.⠀ ⠀ Here are the main points:⠀ ⠀ ✅ what ive-rme-ctin is and its’ history;⠀ ✅ what it is used for;⠀ ✅ the main side effects;⠀ ✅ the mechanism of action;⠀ ✅ the possible benefits based on the research done by FLCCC (Front Line C 0V 1 D-19 Critical Care Alliance Prophylaxis & Treatment Protocols for C 0V 1D -19) doctors.⠀ ⠀ Ive-rm3-ctin was developed over 40 years ago and has eradicated a “pandemic” of parasitic diseases across multiple continents. These impacts are what awarded the discoverers of ivermectin the 2015 Nobel prize in Medicine!⠀ ⠀ Over 50,000 patients were studied – serious events occurred in less than 1% associated with the administration in Loa Loa infected patients. Do you know what Loa Loa infection is? I needed to look it up as it is not common at all here 😆 ⠀ ⠀ SPECIAL CAUTION:⠀ ⠀ 📌Anti-tuberculosis and cholera vaccines 💉 administered at the same time as ivermectin are contraindicated (Lexicomp)⠀ ⠀ 📌The anticoagulant warfarin would require dose monitoring. ⠀ ⠀ 📌 Immunosuppressed or organ transplant patients who are on calcineurin inhibitors such as tacrolimus or cyclosporine or the immunosuppressant sirolimus – close monitoring. See more on Drugs.com/ivermectin.⠀ ⠀
In my humble opinion, it is not IF, it is WHEN one gets sick. The best way to go into a war with the 🦠 is to be prepared. Those who are not prepared may have higher anxiety, stress, and fear which will undermine the immune system and may lead to complications. Preventing hospitalization is the key! ⠀ ⠀
New (old) ways to manage 🦠 ⠀ When we got sick, I had to search again for other treatments as the supplement approach is useful but it still took my husband 3 weeks to recover. That is when I encountered the MASK+ protocol that has been used for several months by Eastern Virginia Medical School – now, it has been used for almost a year since May-June 2020!
⠀ 🥳 So, what is so amazing about this protocol? ⠀ ⠀ In my opinion, it is amazing that it uses nutraceuticals (supplements) and pharmaceutical medications which help to hit the V from all angles. That is the beauty of a functional medicine approach.⠀ 👩🏻⚕️ I, most likely, would not believe how beneficial this protocol was if I had not gotten sick myself. As I had the recommendations from the Institute for Functional Medicine and followed them during the times we got sick just in case, I faced myself the drop in oxygen saturation to 89-90% and heart rate 130 at rest as my heart was trying to compensate for the lack of oxygen, and “asymptomatic hypoxia” Day 6 of the symptoms – asymptomatic because there was no shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. It just felt like I could not expand my chest to get enough air and take a breath. I experienced a drastic improvement in my oxygen level from 89-90% to 99% overnight when I took a dose of ivermectin, my heart rate decreased to normal 80-90 beats per minute. There were the objective measurements that I could explain only by taking ivermectin, as nothing else (supplements, nebulized steroids) helped until then. The subjective feelings were easier time breathing and much less cough 😷
📌 This table shows the progression of the symptoms that get into the pulmonary phase and I would say the scariest part for me would be the necessity of the hospitalization.⠀ ⠀ ✅ Just as the saying goes “A pound of prevention is worth an ounce of cure” – preventing complications has always been my passion and that is how I happened to be practicing Functional medicine. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 😷 As of now, I know only of a few people who have not gotten the plague yet, and I strongly encourage everyone to be proactive and not to wait for the thunder, because for some of us it may be too late and all the supplements in the world are not going to help, if one has high blood pressure, high blood glucose, and whole-body high inflammation.⠀ ⠀ As for me, I am starting New Year with sugar, dairy, and gluten detox. Unfortunately, all the comfort foods that feel good during these stressful times are not good for me and my family. I will still drink black or Bulletproof coffee though 😆 ⠀
