Take your vitamins

Once more into the breech.

Boost your immune system, don’t catch the damn COVID in the first place.

So many of these patients with the comorbidities have very low levels of essential nutrients that keep your immune system working.

Eat lots of grapefruit. It stopped the Spanish Flu, it could stop the COVID.

Different doctors experimented with different methods of treatment, some more novel than others. One doctor in Chicago had under his care 600 patients treating with a mixture primarily comprising grapefruit. Every one survived save for his son, who, ironically, defied his father’s orders and came out of bed so as to tend to his burgeoning undertaking business.

Clearly, grapefruit — rich in vitamin C, a great antioxidant, along with its carotenoid and limonoid components, phytonutrients — boosted bodies and immune systems against the deadly flu of 1918-9.

Get outside in the fresh air and sunshine. This same “open air treatment” worked with the 1918 flu, and was the entire basis of the tuberculosis retreats. It worked for jaundice and rickets too. Sunshine on your skin causes your body to make vitamin D.

It also turns out that some of the UV you get exposed to stimulates the immune system. So much so, that for many years a form of blood irradiation with UV was used to great effect, only fading into obscurity once penicillin showed up. See The Cure That Time Forgot. While this sounds pretty scary, it’s an example of “hormesis”; a little of it does the most good. This is a fascinating long read if you find medicine interesting.

Strong levels of vitamins B1, C, D, zinc, and magnesium can help. Gargle and nasal rinse with hydrogen peroxide. And of course, wash your hands constantly, wear a mask, and keep up that social distancing. All of which worked in 1918.

All of this explains why I haven’t been blogging much the last few days.

I’ve been reading, studying, and chasing down things online. And this is totally my brother’s fault, mentioning to me last weekend that a large number of people who died in the 1918 pandemic did so because of aspirin. Say what??

TRUE !! Aspirin was new then, and people took it by the handful. Aspirin leaches your body of vitamin C and the nearly fatal doses they took caused the worst effects of scurvy to quickly occur: they bled to death internally.

Even if you ate loads of citrus (vitamin C wasn’t even known about for the next 5 or so years) the extreme levels of aspirin shut down the effectiveness of your white blood cells; if anyone was able to measure your blood levels for C, it would be normal but you’d still get sicker. So don’t take too many aspirins either.

The above link is to a long, rather shocking article, but Dr. Karen Starko’s original paper is even moreso, but is much shorter to read.

In summary, just before the 1918 death spike, aspirin was recommended in regimens now known to be potentially toxic and to cause pulmonary edema and may therefore have contributed to overall pandemic mortality and several of its mysteries. Young adult mortality may be explained by willingness to use the new, recommended therapy and the presence of youth in regimented treatment settings (military).

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
