COVID-19 Persistent: TREATMENT WITH IVERMECTIN AND ACETYLSALICYLIC ACID OF PATIENTS WITH THE PERSISTENT SYMPTOM OF ANOSMIA OR HYPOSMIA.
Gustavo Aguirre Chang
I’m a congenital anosmic. My olfactory nerve has never worked. My sense of taste is great – they’re unrelated anatomically except that people aren’t used to separating the two senses and smell is so much more sensitive that it may seem as though taste was lost as well. (One reason taste is less affected is it is the result of at least three cranial nerves.)
From my readings, the olfactory nerve as cranial nerve #1, may be far enough up the brain stem that it is more sensitive to impacts on the nervous system when the brain is potentially affected. It isn’t unusual for vaccines to affect CN #1.
My guess is that inflammation affected the nerve function, and that therefore a good anti-inflammatory like IVM could be beneficial.
The C19 vaccine side effects includes impacts on other senses served by cranial nerves. Think Bell’s Palsy as an example (CN #7).
My usual go to for inflammation is tumeric/cucurmin. I wonder if that has a role in recovering from C19.
Loss of taste and/or smell has been a common effect of colds and flu for ever.
Check the date of this article;
I have known about this for all my adult life. Same with taking VitD and Zinc for seasonal protection, 30 years or more now.
You don’t lose your taste when you have flu or a cold. You lose the association you have between smell and taste so may mistakenly think your taste is affected. I promise you this is what every congenital anosmic knows.
That’s exactly the study I used to implement a solid protocol. I also had a doc on PP mention he supported the protocol and saw no harm in it. I shared this protocol on social media to help others and low and behold I was CENSORED.
Here’s a study from August that looked at anosmia related to covid, how long it lasted, etc. Small group (54) and maybe more recent studies show different numbers, but it seems consistent with what I’ve read elsewhere. Basically, 80% of the cases resolved in 13 days and almost half within 6 days.
I’m curious if you folks are using human-grade ivermectin (doctor prescribed or ordered from overseas, etc) or horse paste? I’ve got the paste in reserve in case I develop symptoms as I don’t know if my doctor will prescribe it. I can only imagine what people think if they hear “yeah, I used horse paste to treat my covid” (though I really don’t care).
horse paste for me… it seems to be pretty safe.
Copying & pasting from the trial provided:
Fifty-four of 114 patients (47%) with confirmed COVID-19 reported anosmia. Mean age of the 54 patients was 47 (± 16) years; 67% were females and 37% were hospitalised. The median Charlson comorbidity index was 0.70 (± 1.6 [0–7]). Forty-six patients (85%) had dysgeusia and 28% presented with pneumonia. Anosmia began 4.4 (± 1.9 [1–8]) days after infection onset. The mean duration of anosmia was 8.9 (± 6.3 [1–21]) days and 98% of patients recovered within 28 days.
So my sister’s anosmia resolution after 3 days is substantially better than the mean of 8.9 days. Her anosmia appeared 4 days after symptom onset. Prior to that, she just thought she was tired. She is 47, which is the mean age of this group. No co-morbidities.
And boy it sure would suck to be in that (small) beyond-28-day group.
There are too many threads! I posted this reply in the Pfizer Vax/ cell biologist -great read thread. If you missed the post, here’s another chance. pinecarr’s sister had a similar bout with anosmia.
We’re all in this together, even if that feels lonely at times. The body can behave surprisingly when dealing with vitamins and minerals. Low levels cause deficiencies and can have pronounced symptoms. Ironically, levels that are too high can have identical symptoms. We tolerate a broad band in the middle.
Our human bodies are essentially biochemical machines. We’ve evolved (or were created) to utilize available materials as building blocks. If we can source these materials from food, we don’t need to manufacture those necessities. Why have processing capacity to make vitamins if food contains enough to survive? For instance, we can make vitamin D from sunlight; however, we can’t make vitamin C at all. That has to come from food sources (or supplements.)
Our agricultural practices have changed drastically over just the last century. It used to be that farmers used draft animals as locomotion for farming. Those draft animals produced copious amounts of manure that would get reincorporated into the soil. Once tractors became ubiquitous, draft animals mostly disappeared from farming.
The Green Revolution began in the ’60s as a result of testing plant needs for fertilizer. They discovered the major fertilizer requirements were N, P, and K. There are micronutrients required as well. The chemical giants started producing fertilizers to sell to farmers. Plants mine the micronutrients as long as those are available. Food quality diminishes as the soil gets “used up.”
We’ve also invented pesticides and GMO plants that never existed in our history. Take Roundup for instance. It is considered harmless to humans because we lack the Shikimate Pathway. Too bad that our gut bugs (which help us digest food) are susceptible. Without a flourishing microbiome, we’re losing out on nutrients that we’ve evolved to expect from other sources. As a result, we’ve got deficiencies.
Our Defense Department personnel were trying to establish the minimum nutritional requirements necessary to keep young fighting men healthy enough to fight. That’s how the RDA came about. It was really developed as a short-term cost cutting issue. They didn’t want to pay too much to feed the troops or to suffer from scurvy or any other nutritional deficiency disease that would take them off the front lines. It wasn’t designed to produce optimal health – just minimal health for a year or so of fighting.
Big Pharma saw the benefits of vitamins and tried to patent those vitamins back in the early ’60s. Thanks to Paul Harvey’s stirring up the public, patents were not issued because vitamins are a natural product. At that point, big Pharma switched gears to show that vitamins weren’t helpful. They designed studies that were intended to fail. (If you pooh-pooh vitamins, their strategy worked.) They used the same playbook recently to show that HCQ and IVM were worthless or detrimental. The lapdog media and congressoids flock to those studies to support their media advertisers and campaign contributors.
So, now we’re stuck with misinformation being so widely accepted that the truth appears to be a lie. We’re told that vaccines are our only hope to eradicate this virus. Meanwhile, we still have to wear masks and keep our distance because we never know who carries the disease. In our rush to bring vaccines to market, we ignored our time-tested procedures to identify potential risks. That makes us all the beta-tester guinea pigs. If Dr. Tenpenny is correct, there will be a plethora of folks with medical issues in the not-too-distant future. Hmmm.
There’s an encyclopedic book about vitamins/minerals called “Aging Without Growing Old” by Judy Lindberg McFarland. My wife got this book around a decade ago. She uses it frequently! Here is the book’s summary on zinc:
Sources: fresh oysters herring, wheat germ, pumpkin seeds, milk, steamed crab, lobster, chicken, pork chops, turkey, lean ground beef, liver, eggs.
What it does: promotes wound healing, helps with acne, affects impotence in men, and aids in increasing sperm count; helps infertility; may help with prostate problems; for increasing immunity; for colds and flu; prevents hair loss; may help with some forms of cancer; helps with macular degeneration.
Deficiency symptoms: fingernails with white spots or bands or an opaquely white appearance, loss of taste, smell, and appetite; delayed sexual development in adolescence; underdeveloped penis and less full beard and underarm hair in boys; irregular menstrual cycle in girls; infertility and impaired sexual function in adults; poor wound healing; loss of hair; increased susceptibility to infection; reduced salivation; skin lesions; stretch marks; reduced absorption of nutrients; impaired development of bones, muscles, and nervous system; deformed offspring; dwarfism.
Optimal daily amount: 30-50 mg (take with copper, a zinc:copper ratio of 10:1.) RDA is 15 mg.
