      Sweden’s failed COVID-19 experiment

    We have to be down to earth and critical. I have never been a fan of Ikealand, and almost violently oppose their model of a ‘feminist democracy’; I rather move to Iran!

     

    Sweden made mistakes about their elderly.  Tragically, we all make mistakes.  But what has skewed their data very unfavorably has been their large Somali, unintegrated community. They did not partake in society, could not understand the directions, and are very vitamine D deficient.

     

    We can probably half their mortality, which puts them in a good place among the EU countries. Norway does way better, but they still don’t have any immunity!

      Do you have a Victory garden?

    My garden. In the Netherlands, we have ‘volkstuinen’, allotment complexes from which one can rent a plot. I rent 2. In summer it is my living room!

    I  like to plant lots of flowers in and around my veggie beds. It gives the garden a wild look. But excellent for biodiversity and to attract bees. I built the greenhouse about 10 years ago from recycled materials.

    Artemisia annua and A. absinthium seedlings; A. annua is used in the possible prevention concoction ‘covid-organics’ from Madagascar. Just as an experiment.

      Elderberry as an Antiviral?

    Elderberry has 2.5 x more quercetine than red onions. Quercetine is a HCQ substitute and a zinc ionophore.

    https://www.sharecare.com/health/immune-lymphatic-system-health/high-quercetin-help-immune-system

    We should all go out and pick a few buckets of elderberries this summer, and concentrate the juice by boiling most of the water off, sweeten it, put some apple (because of the pectine) in it to make it syrupy, and have a few bottles for the winter.

      Plenty of HCQ studies in progress, including early use and as prophylaxis

    Question:  If (when) a PREP prophylaxis with HCQ, Ivermectine, or even the ‘covid-organics’ preparation from Madagascar, to name a few, WOULD BE quite effective:

     

    Would prophylactically taking them prevent infection in a way that no immunity could be achieved?

     

    I have some Ivermectine in my medicine cabinet. If it would work (research is still in progress), I am still hesitant to take it prophylactically: I rather build up immunity through mild disease than through a half bake tested vaccine.

      Melatonin sublingual

    I was wrong!  Melatonin is not a peptide but a molecule derived from Tryptophan. So it might indeed survive the stomach.  It couldn’t hurt to test that though.

      Melatonin sublingual

    Anecdotal?  Not even that, just reasoning.  Melatonin is an oligopeptide, which ought to be broken down by pepside, an stomach enzyme, or by some of the pancreatic enzymes slightly lower in the tract.

     

    But still, Melatonin shows promise in the first studies.

     

    A very simple in vitro experiment exposing melatonin to the digestive enzymes would show how much melatonin would survive the passage through the stomach and the duodenum.

     

    I don’t even know if melatoning passes through the mucosa of the mouth!  But it can totally not hurt to take it sublingually, and it sure won’t be less bio-avalable!

      Artemisia and Madagascar

    There are many Artemisia species with powerful properties in different cultures.  In Madagascar and Africa they use A. annuum as antimalarial and antiparasitical. In the middle east A. absinthum was in use while in central Asia A. arboretum is in use.

    There are probably many more.

    A few days ago, news about the Madagascar Covid-organics came into the public domain.  Youtube inmediately took it down, and within hours, the WHO issued its concern about the preparation.

    Another natural supplement might be grapefruit, which contains quinine itself, but also inhibits the liver enzyme which breaks down quinines.  Just like HCQ it is risky for heart patients.
