Ivermectin is Human Medicine, Too

Happy Hump Day!

As Mrs. Ring practically chews off Gods ear with her prayers, I rarely get a word in edgewise.

But Lord, if youre listening, please save us all from the uneducated asshats parroting horseshit - or would it be horse-paste shit? - about Ivermectin.

Let me explain.

Why The Fifth Column is Now Your Social Media Buddies

Wikipedias definition of the fifth column is thus:

A fifth column is any group of people who undermine a larger group from within, usually in favor of an enemy group or nation. The activities of a fifth column can be overt or clandestine. Forces gathered in secret can mobilize openly to assist an external attack. This term is also extended to organised actions by military personnel. Clandestine fifth column activities can involve acts of sabotage, disinformation, or espionage executed within defense lines by secret sympathizers with an external force.

Robert Heinlein's 1941 story "The Day After Tomorrow, originally titled Sixth Column, refers to a fictional fifth column that destroyed the European democracies from within in the tragic days that led up to the final blackout of European civilization.

Boy, does that seem prescient!

You already know that Im not a doctor, nor do I pretend to be one. But just a cursory glance at the literature tells you all you need to know.

For the life of me, I cant figure out why so many fellow citizens would immediately parrot a line about horse deworming.

To be sure, a form of ivermectin is used for that purpose. But thats not its only purpose.

How Ivermectin Came to Be

In 2015, the Nobel Assembly awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine jointly to

William C. Campbell and Satoshi ?mura ( each) for their discoveries concerning a novel therapy against infections caused by roundworm parasites.

The other half was awarded to Tu Youyou for her discoveries concerning a novel therapy against Malaria.

?mura searched for novel strains of Streptomyces bacteria as a source for new bioactive compounds. He isolated microbes from soil samples in Japan, cultured them in the laboratory, and characterized thousands of Streptomyces cultures.

From those, he selected around 50 of the most promising cultures. One of those cultures turned out to be Streptomyces avermitilis, the source of Avermectin.

Campbell, an expert in parasite biology working in the USA, acquired ?muras Streptomyces cultures and explored their efficacy.

He showed that a component from one of the cultures was remarkably efficient against parasites in domestic and farm animals.

The bioactive agent was purified and named Avermectin, subsequently chemically modified to a more effective compound called Ivermectin.

Ivermectin was later tested in humans with parasitic infections and effectively killed parasite larvae.

Ok, so it *was* and *is* used in humans and effectively kills parasites in humans.

So its not just horse deworming paste, then, is it?

Collectively, ?mura and Campbells contributions led to discovering a new class of drugs with extraordinary efficacy against parasitic diseases.

So not only is the FDA poo-pooing an FDA-approved drug, but the discoverers of this drug won the Nobel prize for it.

Ok

What Does the FDA Say About It?

From the FDAs website, with my notes in bold:

 

    • The FDA has not authorized or approved ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19 in humans or animals. Ivermectin is approved for human use to treat infections caused by some parasitic worms and head lice, and skin conditions like rosacea. (Ok.)
    • Currently available data do not show ivermectin is effective against COVID-19. Clinical trials assessing ivermectin tablets for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 in people are ongoing. (The paper below shows otherwise.)
    • Taking large doses of ivermectin is dangerous. (Large amounts of anything is harmful.)
    • If your health care provider writes you an ivermectin prescription, fill it through a legitimate source such as a pharmacy, and take it exactly as prescribed. (Ya think?)
    • Never use medications intended for animals on yourself or other people. Animal ivermectin products are very different from those approved for humans. The use of animal ivermectin for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 in humans is dangerous. (No shit, Sherlock!)

Heres a clue: ivermectin for animals comes in paste form. Ivermectin for humans comes in pill form.

Easy, aye?

Funnily enough, I came across this paper this morning, published on the NIH website. The article is titled, Ivermectin: a multifaceted drug of Nobel prize-honored distinction with indicated efficacy against a new global scourge, COVID-19.

Heres the abstract:

In 2015, the Nobel Committee for Physiology or Medicine, in its only award for treatments of infectious diseases since six decades prior, honored the discovery of ivermectin (IVM), a multifaceted drug deployed against some of the world's most devastating tropical diseases.

Since March 2020, when IVM was first used against a new global scourge, COVID-19, more than 20 randomized clinical trials (RCTs) have tracked such inpatient and outpatient treatments.

Six of seven meta-analyses of IVM treatment RCTs reporting in 2021 found notable reductions in COVID-19 fatalities, with a mean 31% relative risk of mortality vs. controls.

During mass IVM treatments in Peru, excess deaths fell by a mean of 74% over 30 days in its ten states with the most extensive treatments. Reductions in deaths correlated with the extent of IVM distributions in all 25 states with p < 0.002.

Sharp reductions in morbidity using IVM were also observed in two animal models, of SARS-CoV-2 and a related betacoronavirus.

The indicated biological mechanism of IVM, competitive binding with SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, is likely non-epitope specific, possibly yielding full efficacy against emerging viral mutant strains.

In short, ivermectin is not only a great drug; its the most significant infectious disease treatment in 60 years.

And you wonder why the public has trust issues?

From a good friend of mine on Facebook:

The fact that the campaign is so obviously deceitful makes me think theres something to ivermectin. Btw, We took it (the human version) during our 2 month stay in Mexico. Used the FLCCC protocol. No side effects at all. Its easy to get in MX and some ppl use it prophylactically. Not seen as anything strange at all.

Another friend added:

NAC (N-acetylcysteine) was taken off Amazon because it heals lungs and the liver and removes lung mucosity. I highly recommend it for people with compulsions over food, smoking, cannabis, drinking, etc.

Go ahead and search on Amazon and iHerb for NAC. You wont find it in stock.

But trust the FDA

Wrap Up

Im not recommending you run out and take any of these drugs. Im merely pointing out that its dodgy as all hell that amino acids like NAC and solutions that helped their discoverers win the Nobel Prize are being removed from the public.

Stay safe out there. It seems your government may not have your best interest at heart.

And your social media buddies are just parroting government crap in the name of patriotism. Its terrible for your health.

But you already knew that.

All the best,

Sean
