Ivermectin for the world | Letter to the editor
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light two issues: the human right to access a life-saving medicine and the doctor’s right to exercise his Hippocratic Oath. As a result, the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) today called for âthe immediate and global use of ivermectin to end the COVID-19 pandemicâ.
The statement said: “Our latest research shows, once again, that when the totality of the evidence is examined, there is no doubt that ivermectin is very effective as a safe prophylaxis and treatment for COVID-19,” said Paul E. Marik, MD, FCCM, FCCP, founding member of the FLCCC and chief of pulmonary medicine and critical care at Eastern Virginia Medical School. “
Dr Marik continued, âWe can no longer count on most major health authorities to conduct an honest review of medical and scientific evidence. We therefore call on regional public health authorities and healthcare professionals around the world to demand that ivermectin be immediately included in their standard of care so that we can end this pandemic, once and for all.
With growing evidence of corrupt public health authorities, healthcare professionals are increasingly called upon to exercise their Hippocratic Oath and do what is best for patients – even if it does. means risking their career. This moral imperative has been described in detail in the recently published book, Ivermectin for the world.
The book brings to life the underground movement of the world’s greatest physicians to uncover the truth against all odds and the David v Goliath battle to save the world with ivermectin. Every day new stories emerge.
An example in Elmhurst, Illinois is representative of the current choice of physicians. Patient Nurijie Fype, a 68-year-old woman who is comatose with COVID-19, lies near death in the ICU on a ventilator. Her family requested that she be given ivermectin, and the hospital objected.
In an Orwellian position, the hospital objected to her right to receive the drug and fought a court order giving her the drug. After three days, the hospital maintained that it could not find a doctor willing to administer it. The hospital’s lawyer reported in a hearing that 20 doctors and 19 other health workers refused to administer the drug. However, the pressure exerted by the hospital to dissuade these professionals is not mentioned in the court documents.
Dr. Alan Bain, an internal medicine specialist from Chicago, was granted temporary privileges at the hospital and administered ivermectin. It appears that Dr. Bain was the only doctor willing to stand up to the hospital and put the patient’s best interests first.
Dr Bain is a member of the C19 group, a group of professionals championing the use of reused drugs for COVID-19. Dr George Fareed, Dr Peter McCullough and Dr Harvey Risch were instrumental in the movement. In November, the trio testified in the US Senate about the effectiveness of cocktails combining ivermectin with HCQ and nutraceuticals, including zinc and vitamin D3.
At the start of the pandemic, the triple therapy of HCQ, zinc and azithromycin proved to be vital, as Dr. Vladimir Zelenko of New York has shown. Likewise, Dr Fareed’s dynamic associate Dr Brian Tyson used this therapeutic cocktail to save 1,900 patients from his COVID-19 in the Imperial Valley, even when authorities threatened him, advising him to stop .
Both Dr. Bain and Dr. Tyson are heroes in this pandemic as medics ready to challenge the FDA in their quest to save their patients and follow their Hippocratic Oaths. Yet, unfortunately, the FDA recommends against using ivermectin for COVID-19 despite 53 studies showing that it can reduce mortality by up to 91%.
However, the sacred oath requires doctors to do what is in the best interests of their patients, which sometimes conflicts with the political guidelines of public health agencies.
The FDA can and does influence off-label prescription in hospitals. Such influence, many doctors believe, is at the behest of drug companies who prefer more expensive drugs approved by the FDA. However, outspoken experts believe this compromises patient care by blocking access to more effective and safer off-label drugs, especially in the case of ivermectin for COVID.
The FLCCC and many leading researchers believe it is clear that ivermectin is safe, inexpensive, and life-saving. Large and reproducible studies confirm that ivermectin is associated with substantial reductions in mortality. Additionally, the FLCCC and many other academics are undoubtedly aware that ivermectin is more effective in late-stage COVID than the FDA’s choice, Remdesivir, with a price tag of $ 3,100, a drug that evidence shows. that it does not reduce mortality. Ivermectin, on the other hand, saves lives, even in near-death patients who rely on ventilators, but it only costs pennies.
The last three COVID clients that Ralph C. Lorigo, Fype’s attorney, represented have all won court orders for ivermectin and all have recovered ventilators after receiving the drug.
The storyline with Nurijie Fype is symptomatic of greater evil than COVID. It is an epidemic of corruption at the highest levels of our society. Big Pharma and their public health regulators control hospitals and rule with an iron fist. Tragically, this epidemic of greed has crept into the fabric of medicine, and it now sits between patient and doctor.
In Fype’s case, the attending physician expressed concern that prescribing ivermectin against the hospital’s legal position would jeopardize his license. When a patient has to hire a lawyer and sue their hospital for access to a safe, life-saving, off-label drug, we know our medical system is sick. And when we see this happening in different countries on other continents, this, like COVID-19, must be declared a pandemic.
But the treatment for it is not a sophisticated, patent-protected, experimental vaccine. Instead, this is once again a traditional non-conforming solution that has proven to effectively address these conditions. In addition, it is a constitutional right, any right stemming from the 5th Amendment – the right to life and liberty. The prerogative to try a drug that saves lives is a basic human right. We need to elevate the Right to Judge Act to an official constitutional mandate. Very soon, we’ll likely see some old-fashioned remedies being used to end both pandemics – ivermectin for one and the United States Supreme Court for the other.
