THE APPARENT PECULIAR EFFECTS OF THE COVID-19 VIRUS ON

OUR NUTRIENT LEVELS

By Dr. Dan Wagner

The recent world epidemic with the coronavirus (COVID-19) is only nine months old. In past decades humanity has seen epidemics come and go. Many experts have theorized that this new virus is behaving similar to the common cold virus, but is much more contagious and virulent. Although the introduction of antibiotics in the middle of last century did wonders in alleviating millions from the ravishes of bacterial infections, viruses have been much more evasive, and to this day science has not discovered an effective treatment model for eradicating viral infections (including the common flu). There is hope in vaccines, since no drug therapy has been initialized to counterbalance the success of antibiotic therapy, but creating a “miracle vaccine” in such a short period of time is suspect.

I have repeatedly mentioned in my last 4 on-line articles that a strong immune system is a logical and appropriate answer for many diseases. A healthy lifestyle coupled with optimal nutrition along with micronutrient support is historically considered a most effective way to limit infections including COVID-19.

This fact is fundamental considering that the factors that result in mild verses severe COVID-19 infections has not been fully elucidated. In fact, as I see in my natural medicine practice, many viral infections can be accompanied by a bacterial co-infection, especially H. pylori.

H. pylori infection is very widespread and likely includes more than half the world’s population. It can best be identified in the human gut (small & large intestines and colon)- the main components of our immune system. It is not generally detected by usual bacterial culture methods. Although a common occupant of the human gastrointestinal tract, it is not harmful or deleterious unless it manifests to high levels. Very high levels are mainly associated with gastric ‘ulcers.’

However, there are some peculiar overlaps in the effects of H. pylori infection and those of COVID-19 that it raises curiosity about possible connections. A partial list of these less severe symptoms includes: cough (a considerable public disease marker), fever (associated with more than 50% of asymptomatic COVID-19 cases); headache (H. pylori as always been associated with headache); sore throat (H-pylori has been sited as a cause of chronic pharyngitis), and diarrhea (a common effect t of immunodeficiency).

My research has found that a leading therapy for eradication of H. pylori levels is not antibiotic therapy, but the lowering of lactic acid in the gut! High lactic/uric acid in the gut is a premium environment for the excessive growth and vitality of all microorganisms (i.e., bacteria, viruses, molds and parasites). This therapy is much more utilized in Europe than in the U.S. and is mainly treated with biological homeopathy.



Effects on Micronutrients

The negative effect on micronutrients (i.e., vitamins, minerals, amino acids) that the COVID-19 virus appears to have as the pandemic progresses is also coming into a clearer light. The growing list of highly credible physicians and researchers that recommend nutritional supplementation is rigorous, despite the medical community, Big PHARMA or the FDA stating that these interventions are anecdotal. These are the most vital micronutrient protocols that are proposed for the COVID-9 pandemic:

Vitamin C- It is well documented that Vitamin C extensively strengthens the immune system in fighting infections and other degenerative diseases successfully. Vitamin C can support patients against antibiotic, antiviral and antifungal drug-resistant infections. The fact that the COVID virus attacks the lungs- vitamin C becomes a more important treatment because of its well-known protective effects on lung tissue. The only caveat that I would add to rational Vitamin C therapy is to supplement with an ascorbate form of Vitamin C (not simple ascorbic acid), supported with strong co-factors such as OPC, resveratrol and grape seed extract. Since Vitamin C has short-lived biological activity high doses are not necessary. These cofactors can boost the activity by a 10-fold measure.

Vitamin D- Thirty years ago a scientist theorized that ‘seasonal stimulus’ linked to the sun’s solar radiation could explain the remarkable seasonality of epidemic influenza. Solar radiation activated Vitamin D production in the skin that has profound effects on human immunity. Recent review has reported that Vitamin D supplementation reduced the risk of acute respiratory viral-or-bacterial respiratory infection (keenly associated with the COVID-19 epidemic). It has also been revealed (data from 20 European countries) that in many virulent COVID-19 cases Vitamin D levels were critically low.

Magnesium- Approximately 800 enzyme systems require magnesium for their optimal functioning. It has been well documented that magnesium is inherently deficient in the American population, with reports reaching 80% in some groups. I recommend magnesium supplementation to at least 90% of all my patients. The potential role of magnesium in the activation and development of the immune system is profound. Magnesium is a cofactor in most immune responses, especially in the midst of the viral epidemic.

Zinc- The importance of zinc on immune function has been well documented. Zinc deficiency in the general population has been linked to immune deficiency mainly affecting T-helper cells and decreasing natural killer (NK) cell activity. Zinc has been a stable of therapy for treating the common cold (Flu) symptoms, showing a significant reduction not only in the duration but also the severity of symptoms. Finally, a recent exemplary study argues that prophylactic effect that zinc may pose on COVID-19. Zinc’s direct anti-infectious properties will benefit against viral and respiratory tract cases.

I wrote this open letter article in hopes of bringing some light to the many dying and afflicted patients around the country and the world. As this global pandemic progresses- time is of the essence. We are facing a formidable viral epidemic, but don’t be convinced that it can or will be limited to vaccines and drug therapy. There is strong evidence that strengthening our immune system with micronutrient interventions. Logic dictates that a combination of both is better than either therapy separately.



Doses recommended: Vitamin C 1,000-2,000 mg daily (higher doses with an acute attack); Vitamin D3 800-5,000 iu per day; Magnesium 400-1,000 mg daily; Zinc 40-100 mg per day.

DO YOU FEEL A SUFFOCATING “HEALTH” DARKNESS COMING OVER OUR NATION?

By Dr. Dan Wagner


Now that the COVID-19 virus has spread across the globe, we must wonder if there is a good reason that America has had the most cases and the most deaths, especially since China, where the virus has been reported to originate, has fewer cases and deaths, yet nearly four times the population of the United States.


Perhaps the answer is what the medical establishment has revealed during the last few months—that Americans are in poor health!


It is hard to believe that the US Secretary of Health & Human Services stated that American COVID-19 deaths have occurred in higher proportion to other countries because America is in worse health than most countries.


Let us consider some of the facts:


- America spends more on health care than any other nation on earth—yet we’re all the sicker for it.


- Americans are unhealthy because of poor quality food, air, and water, along with our hyper-pharmaceutical culture.


- America has weaponized a government/medical agenda of forced testing, tracking, surveillance, and an impending mandatory vaccination program, etc., while ignoring what got us here in the first place.


- Not one media medical personality and/or celebrity doctor can give us any relevant advice beyond wearing a mask, staying in your house, and practicing social distancing. Can just one professional mention the importance of keeping a strong immune system?


- The “fear” perpetrated by the media over the pandemic likely has a strong negative effect on our physical and psychological wellbeing.


Generally, the COVID-19 virus has been misdiagnosed, misinformed, mistreated, and poorly tested since it appeared for the first time in the North American continent a few months ago. In addition, there is mass unemployment, public panicking, demonstrations, and the largest transfer of wealth and consolidation of business cartelization in modern history to a handful of large international corporations.


Does anyone else feel a suffocating darkness descending on our nation?


The famous British author Charles Dickens once wrote, “The sun, the bright sun, that brings back, not light alone, but new life, and hope, and freshness to mankind.” Has anyone in the medical community informed us that just 20 minutes of exposure to sunshine each day will eliminate almost 80 percent of all harmful microorganisms in one’s system? Why are we being told to stay indoors?


I once attended a natural medicine conference where an elderly scientist informed the crowd that there are generally three things a human must have for a healthy life: breathing fresh air (oxygen); absorbing nutrients in an alkaline environment (in one’s gut); and the detoxification of wastes. That’s pretty simple, isn’t it?

To breathe clean air we should consider getting out of the cities as much as possible—we should even think about moving to rural areas. We would all agree that eating a healthier diet is essential, but we need to remember that the absorption of nutrients is the major factor in a healthier body—not just consumption. Lastly, elimination of wastes and toxins (detoxification) is a critical factor and one that is rarely talked about in medical circles, likely because it is not taught in medical schools. Toxins these days come in a multitude of forms, including pesticides, heavy metals, plastics, air and water pollution, radiation, GMO foods, synthetic chemicals, and many others. If the body cannot exude these toxins over time, it will store them. This phenomenon is a leading explanation of how disease starts in the body. But don’t dismiss the fact that toxic thoughts and emotions are just as dangerous, for they are!

So get outside more, get some sun, enjoy nature, exercise, hugs are good (even if we can’t shake hands), and practice stress management in any way you feel that is best for your body. Your immune system will thank you, and you’ll never be devastated by this pandemic.

A LOGICAL RESPONSE TO THE PANDEMIC: CLARITY NOT HYSTERIA
By Dr. Dan Wagner

“He who overcomes his fears will truly be free.” ~ Aristotle

We are all aware that the COVID-19 crisis is causing massive social and economic upheaval. Did anyone think as we toasted in the New Year a few months ago that millions of jobs would be lost, that we would be told to “lockdown,” that we would be afraid to go outside, and that we would practice social distancing?

While we wait for the government and Big Pharma to issue us “passes” to go outside and enjoy the sun, the green grass, the fresh air, and the environment again, we should realize that now is the time for critical thinking. Now is time to ask the hard questions and pursue the truth, no matter how uncomfortable it may be for some people.

No matter what is happening in the world, a number-one priority should be maintaining good health. WE MUST NOT PANIC! Living a healthy lifestyle in terms of diet, supplements, exercise, sleep, emotions, and spirituality should never be a reaction to these dire news reports: a healthy lifestyle should already be a part of our everyday lives. In my many years of experience I have found that fear and excessive worrying are most harmful to health. Fear can be a massive psychological warfare, terrorizing and confusing the population. Fear will hinder our reasoning and weaken our immune resistance.

Here is a list of generally recognized FACTS concerning this pandemic:

- According to noted scientist Dr. Bruce Lipton, “This virus is just a flu, but a bad flu.”
- In most cases, the immune system will take care of flu symptoms if they are manifested.
- Emotional stress can shut down your immune system.
- This virus can be treated.
- Fifty percent of the people who contract COVID-19 have no symptoms—this is likely due to the fact that they have a strong immune system.
- Fear can be a normal response, but long-term fear, such as feeling that you are going to die, can lead to adverse biological changes.
- Why do viruses increase during the fall and winter? Because of lower temperatures. Viruses cannot replicate in warm temperatures—whether those warm temperatures are caused by the sun or by increasing our own body temperature through such methods as sauna and exercise.
- If a million people in the United States get this virus, you still only have a 1 in 340 chance of contracting it yourself and about a 1 in 8,500 chance of dying.

Let me state for the record the two words that mainstream media personalities, as well as doctors, nurses, and health professionals who have been interviewed by the media, have refused to mention . . . the IMMUNE SYSTEM. Why can’t anyone in the media inform the public that our God-given immune system is the key factor in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, or any other dangerous microorganism for that matter?

The immune system is a host defense system comprising many biological structures and processes within an organism that protects against disease. To function properly, the immune system must detect a wide variety of pathogens—from viruses, bacteria, mold, fungus, to parasitic worms—and distinguish them from the organism’s own healthy tissue. This is called the adaptive immune system, which is acquired. In time, this remarkable protective system will enable our body to “adapt” to these pathogens, making them less likely to lead to disease or ill health.

There is also an innate immune system, which is an older evolutionary defense strategy, relatively speaking, and the dominant immune system response found in humans, animals, plants, insects, and even primitive multicellular organisms. The immune system, via its own intelligence, will repel and try to eliminate any toxin or foreign invader that enters the body. So in addition to repelling pathogens when a chemical, pesticide, heavy metal, radiation, e-smog, plastic, or other environmental hazard enters the body, the innate immune system will do its best to detoxify the invader. If the immune system cannot adequately detoxify over time via urination, defecation, sweating, and exhaling, it will have no choice but to store these poisons in our lymph system, liver, kidney, fat, and connective tissue. These toxins can be time bombs waiting to explode—and when they do the result is disease, or what I prefer to call dis-ease.

There is one other important system that works hand-in-hand with the immune system, and that is the endocrine system. The components of the endocrine system, including the thyroid gland, adrenal glands, hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and pineal gland, entail an emotional response to a foreign invader—even if that foreign invader is a toxic thought. Would you agree that fear is a dangerous and deleterious thought? Of course it is, and it can negatively affect our immune system just as much as a pathogen or toxin—maybe more. In fact, many scientists believe that the endocrine system and the immune system are one and the same system.

If you haven’t had a chance to read my last article on Facebook titled “What to do if you get sick during these unprecedented times,” please do. It will give you valuable information on supplements and nutrients you can take to boost immunity and nourish key body function. But ultimately, the best way to keep a strong immune system and fight off the COVID-19 virus is to think clearly! Do not believe that a vaccine will save us from this virus or any other future pandemic. Have the flu vaccines completely protected us against the seasonal flu? No, maybe 20–25% in their best years. There are a myriad of protective measures we can take for ourselves, with or without a vaccine or a new drug.

Keep informed, but don’t get distracted by partisan opinions. Don’t let the political powers that are heavily influencing the medical profession take away our health freedoms. Health freedoms must be protected! Think clearly. Drive away the fear. Make your best health decisions on informed information—even if someone calls it “alternative” and it is not supported by Big Pharma, the WHO, the CDC, Mr. Gates, or the FDA.
