The Experience of my Mid-80s Parents with COVID-19
In early April my mid 80's parents and I had our dance with the COVID-19 virus. They both tested positive.
The evening before Easter my mother complained about fatigue and cough. So she started taking the supplements in the I-Mask+ protocol for outpatients from the med school profs at the FLCCC. The FLCCC's doctors have roughly 2000 published papers among them. Several of them have worked as chief of emergency medicine at med school hospitals.
The following morning, Easter, my mother felt fine. She went to church and prepared a nice Italian dinner. Since she was feeling fine and my sister and her husband joined us for dessert. We kept the event small due to the pandemic. Even though we were all asymptomatic, we all got the virus!
We did not think my mother had COVID. We assumed there was no way a handful of supplements could knock out SARS2 virus overnight in an 83 year old.
Since starting to use an integrative medical approach my mother almost never gets more than a mild cold. Typically upon first symptoms she takes zinc acetate lozenges, extra vitamin C and D and wakes up the next morning asymptomatic. So when this happened the night before Easter, we assumed she just had her typical response to fighting a mild cold.
However the morning after Easter my father was clearly sick. He had unusual fatigue and a cough. He slept much of the day. Gradually my mother's symptoms returned.
I purchased some cough medicine for them but still did not think this was Covid. I failed to monitor them. By evening they were both sick and (re)started taking I-Mask+. My nieces who were front-line Covid nurses tested my father with an oximeter. He was well above average. My mother was average.
Later that evening I started with the same symptoms. I stayed with my parents to care for them.
The following morning I was the sickest person in the house. Thankfully my parents only had mild symptoms. By evening my mother proclaimed that she was fine and would not need any extra supplements the following day.
That day my father spent time moving plants from one greenhouse to another in his wheelbarrow. He was still taking the I-Mask+ supplements.
However by evening the virus had roared back in my mother who was not taking care of herself. She needed help to get off the sofa and was not thinking very clearly. Her oxygen had declined somewhat to borderline low. We thought we might have to take her to the hospital. However after a few hours taking the virus seriously with nutrition, hydration, electrolytes and the I-Mask+ protocol she stabilized and was okay over night and the next day.
I had 24 hours of extraordinary fatigue and a mild cough for a couple days. I slept much of the day on Tuesday but did not need a nap the remainder of the week, just 8 hours of sleep. Thankfully this allowed me to care for my folks.
Unfortunately my mother repeated her mistake on Friday. She stopped taking the I-Mask+ supplements, instead, relying on the Antibiotic
and steroid from her doctor. By evening the virus had roared back. She resumed the I-Mask+ protocol and added a half dose of Ivermectin.
Several hours later we actually had her dressed to go to the hospital when the combo finally kicked in. She was stable overnight and gradually improved over the following couple of days while taking I-Mask+ and Ivermectin.
On Monday evening we took my mother to the hospital, not because of Covid symptoms, but because she had a heart rate of 150 and probable A-Fib according to a home EKG device. We previously suspected undiagnosed A-Fib and she had prior plans to see her doctor about it but the appointment was cancelled due to her Covid infection.
The hospital treated her A-Fib successfully but did not need to treat her for the virus. She was on day 10 and the virus is typically dead by then according to various studies.
My 87 year old father never needed to call his doctor. He never even needed any ivermectin, just the I-Mask+ supplements. However he did end up with a modest case of long-Covid. He had more fatigue and lethargy in week 2 than he did in the middle of his first week with the virus. Thankfully he was always able to care for himself, could think clearly and never had below average oxygen. It took him a month or so to regain full stamina.
My sister and her husband did not do badly. They are both rather healthy.
None of us had been vaccinated, except my sister's one dose. Other than age we do not have any high risk factors such as obesity, diabetes, asthma, etc. We don't usually get more than a mild cold since starting to use integrative medicine.
I was amazed about how infectious the virus was. It is rare for all of us to get sick, let alone sick enough to need to sleep much of the day.
The fatigue is VERY dangerous. I'm sure many people who lived alone died due to it. The virus can hit you so quickly you are not prepared to care for yourself. It is tempting to sleep too much and neglect nutrition, hydration, electrolytes, etc. It is very important to be prepared and have someone call every few hours to remind you to eat and drink, etc.
So we take this virus very seriously. However it is clear that medical leadership has deceived the world about treatments for outpatients. This pandemic should not have been nearly so bad.
I was very, very impressed about the punch that I-Mask+ had against this virus. The med school profs at the FLCCC are our heroes!
The I-Mask+ protocol includes vitamin D, vitamin C, zinc, quercetin and melatonin (at bedtime). The protocol includes the former Nobel Prize winning medication, Ivermectin. However even though we had the medication on hand we needed almost none of it. It is so safe it is sold over the counter like aspirin in much of the world.
A year prior my parents and I had vitamin D blood tests and corrected their blood level into the mid 40s (ng/ml). If your doctor won't order the test it is available online for around $75. https://www.grassrootshealth.net/
The founder of the FLCCC, the admirable Professor Paul Marik explains some of the study data supporting the inclusion of the supplements in the I-Mask+ protocol in this 5 minute clip.
The FLCCC's leader, Dr. Kory, explains the remarkable results of using Ivermectin in Mexico in this 5 minute clip. He then explains why so few people hear about the medicine that has been given to millions of people over the past 30 years.
Study data is suggesting Ivermectin is roughly 75% effective when started in the early phase of infection.
The FLCCC has a list of doctors who may prescribe Ivermectin via telemedicine.
