Friends and Family,
Jenny and I are fortunate to have had a pretty normal and busy year, despite all of the changes this year. We have been well, and Jenny's big spinal surgery in July went well. Jenny is fully recovered and working daily at her school.
Holly (not Tommy), Amber, and Amber's husband, Philip all had COVID. They all took antivirals, and they are all doing well. We have all been taking 5000 units per day of vitamin-D this year. We hope that you also have, and still are.
Your own immune system is the miracle drug for this weird virus. Low vitamin-D weakens your immune system. Low and extremely low vitamin-D levels are the norm in our modern world, since people live and travel "indoors", and do not get hours of daily sun on their skins. There is good medical analysis that up to 87% of COVID deaths are directly linked to low vitamin-D.
People have a trained reflex; "don't take too much!" I'll tell you my experience and also a recent study that looked at getting vitamin-D levels up to normal quickly. The observational study used 60,000 units of vitamin D3 per day for 2-3 weeks. More than half of the participants got a mid-normal blood level by 2 weeks, but about a quarter of them still had a blood level below the target range of 50 or more, at the end of 3 weeks. Nobody had a higher than normal level. Normal is 30-100, and the target range here was 50-100.
60,000 Units per day is a big number, but it is 1.25 mg of vitamin-D, which sounds much smaller.
My experience is that people don't absorb all of a big dose, and absorb multiple smaller doses better.
People who take two pills of 5000 units per day (the largest dose our stores here sell) will usually get up into the low normal range in 2-3 months, but not always. It is ok to catch up missed doses when you remember.
I have given away over $500 of vitamin-D 5000 units this year. Another 200 bottles of 100 pills should come in today or tomorrow, for $670. It will also be given to patients, coworkers, friends, neighbors and family. I gave a bottle to a beggar I see on my bike ride, instead of the usual dollar bill, and a school crossing guard who waves at me. I explained the benefits and urged them to take it daily. They said they were on Friday when I saw them again. Jenny got $120 worth of Vitamin D at Costco and gave it to all of her coworkers when they had an outbreak at school last month. I treated three of her coworkers (including a husband with cancer) without seeing them in clinic.
Ivermectin is the core antiviral treatment that works very well at all stages of COVID, including prevention.
Vitamin-D should be taken as a baseline, and it should be added if someone who gets sick is not already taking it.
Zinc has long been known to disrupt corona viral reproduction.
Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance website keeps up with this, as do I at www.johndayblog.com, though I keep up with a lot of other things, too. We have entered a time of rapid and disorienting societal transformation
It is important, in my professional opinion, not to expose yourself to the risks of vaccines, which have not been through extended testing.
Coronavirus vaccines have a specific problem called "Pathogenic Priming", which means that when the vaccine works to produce antibodies, it also works to prime a fatal response for the host animal or person, when exposed to the coronavirus. This became apparent after SARS in the early 2000s. They tried repeatedly to make coronavirus vaccines, but too many lab animals always died. They never developed any coronavirus vaccine safe enough for human trials.
There are no animal trials this time, for any of the COVID-19 vaccines.
Wait to see how this works out for people. Take 5000 units per day of vitamin D.
Share the I-Mask-Plus treatment protocol from the COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance with your doctor. https://www.evms.edu/media/evms_public/departments/internal_medicine/EVMS_Critical_Care_COVID-19_Protocol.pdf
Print it up and take it with you or mail it.
Ivermectin, zinc and doxycycline treatment packs are being sold in India, where they are using a LOT of them, to good effect.
Some of you who live nearby have gotten an orange tree seedling we grew and some Vitamin-D for Christmas.
Love and Best Wishes,
John and Jenny Day
