Update May 15, 2020...Dr. Brownstein's Covid-19 blog posts and recovery videos are are no longer available. Dr. Brownstein has been ordered by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to stop making any statements about treatment protocols of Vitamins A, C & D, as well as nutritional IV’s, iodine, ozone and nebulization to support the immune system with respect to Coronavirus Diseases 2019 (COVID-19). Please read, "There Is Still Hope Out There……..And We Are Taking Time Out To Re-Group."

In the video below, Dr. David Brownstein and colleagues talk about Covid-19 recovery stories and immune support therapies. They offer hope and encouragement during this challenging time and, as one of their followers states, they are doing much to "flatten the fear." I encourage you to watch, listen, learn and share.
"My colleagues & I DO NOT claim to have a cure for any illness. However, we do make the claim that we can give the patient a CHANCE TO RECOVER by supporting the ‘host’ and supporting the terrain of the host. In many cases, the human body is designed wonderfully to fight back against illness. Read my blogs, watch our patient testimonials, continue to join us for our Saturday afternoon video chats, and YOU be the judge. Look for us again next Saturday May 2nd on FACEBOOK LIVE for more (TIME-TBA). Come with questions. Until then, stay well." ~ Dr B
“It’s not the virulence of the bug; it’s the weakness of the terrain
Honor how well we’re designed . . . Honor the design…”
- Dr. Richard Ng -
In the video below, doctors who are humble enough and courageous enough, publicly acknowledge that using "established" medical treatments on Covid-19 patients is not working; and in many cases, actually causing more harm than good. It is extremely disturbing that Covid-19 treatment protocols that are saving lives, like the one developed by Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Working Group, are not being used or at least more readily embraced. Please watch, read and share.
Doctors Face Troubling Question: Are They Treating Coronavirus Correctly?
NYT News - April 14, 2020
Many thanks to Robin Stein for producing this video and to the New YorkTimes
for publishing it.
"Doctors say the coronavirus is challenging core tenets of medicine, leading some to abandon long-established ventilator protocols for certain patients. But other doctors warn this could be dangerous."
“This disease has challenged everything that we believed was right six weeks ago.” Dr. David A. Farcy, President, American Academy of Emergency Medicine
“It’s different than anything we’ve seen before and maybe the way we’ve been taking care of things is not the right way of doing it."
Dr. Salim R. Rezaie, E.R., Greater San Antonio Emergency Physicians
“I’m concerned that if we continue on the path that we’re on, that hundreds of thousands of lives and lungs may be at risk.”
Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell, E.R./ I.C.U., Maimonides Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY.
"Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again,
but expecting different results."
- Albert Einstein -
The Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Working Group consists of eight U.S. physicians, including five leading critical care specialists, who have developed a protocol for treating COVID-19 patients. Despite the fact that their protocol is saving lives, it has been met with resistance by those who cling to a more "established" medical paradigm that is resulting in needless deaths. Watch the video below, read the supporting materials and please share this important information with others.
"This video describes the work of five critical care specialists who are treating coronavirus patients at academic centers and other major hospitals across the United States. Through their current work, past research, and studying the findings of the Shanghai expert protocols, they have concluded that a combination of corticosteroids, high dose intravenous ascorbic acid (vitamin C), and anticoagulants, given early in the ER or hospital, can prevent the progression of the disease and reduce the need for mechanical ventilators. Their findings have not yet been widely adopted in the U.S. and they want to get the word out
to save lives now."

...Featuring Dr. Judy Mikovits
From Children's Health Defense...
RFK, Jr.: Judy Mikovits is among her generation’s most accomplished scientists. She joined NIH in 1980 as a Postdoctoral Scholar in Molecular Virology at the National Cancer Institute. Dr. Mikovits began a 20-year collaboration with Frank Ruscetti, a pioneer in the field of human retro virology. She helped Dr Russetti isolate the HIV virus + link it to AIDS in 1983. Her NIH boss Anthony Fauci delayed publication of that critical paper for 6 months to let his protégé Robert Gallo replicate, publish and claim credit. The delay in mass HIV testing let AIDS further spread around the globe + helped Fauci win promotion to director NIAID.
Watch video below.
In 2006, Dr Mikovits became director of Whittemore Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Disease + collaborated with Dr Ruscetti searching for the cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome which suddenly became epidemic in the 1980s. The male dominated medical community dismissed CFS as psychosomatic “yuppie flu" caused when fragile females cracked in corporate jobs.
Dr. Mikovits discovered that 67% of affected women carried a virus—called Xenotropic Murine Leukemia related Virus—that appeared in healthy women only 4% of the time.
XMRV is also associated with prostate, breast, ovarian cancers, leukemia, and multiple myeloma. Many women with XMRV bore children with autism. In 2009, Drs. Mikovits and Ruscetti published their explosive findings in the journal Science. But the question remained: How was XMRV getting into people.
Other researchers linked the first CFS outbreak to a polio vaccine given to doctors and nurses that resulted in the "1934 Los Angeles County Hospital Epidemic." That vaccine was cultivated on pulverized mouse brains. Retroviruses from dead animals can survive in cell lines and permanently contaminate vaccines.
Dr Mikovits’ studies suggested that the XMRV Virus was present in the MMR, Polio + Encephalitis vaccines given to American children + soldiers.
Dr Fauci ordered Mikovits to keep her mouth shut. When she refused, he illegally confiscated her work books and hard drives, drove her from government work + blackballed her from receiving NIH grants ending her science career. XMRV remains in American vaccines.
On March 31, 2020, Cameron Kyle-Sidell, MD a NYC emergency room/critical care physician on the front lines working with COVID-19 patients released a video that has been shared widely on social media; although, to my knowledge, not via mainstream media*. I urge you to listen to what Dr. Kyle-Sidell has to say. Several related resources are listed below including an April 9th webinar from "thinking critical care" entitled COVID-19 Webinar: Respiratory Management, where you will hear Dr. Kyle-Sidell and several physicians from Italy, U.S. and Canada, openly discuss the issues that Dr. Kyle-Sidell has brought to the forefront. Printed excerpts from that webinar are included below. As I was about to publish this post, I discovered a brief update from thinking critical care entitled, "C'EST N' EST PAS ARDS" i.e., "IT'S NOT ARDS." Click here for audio.

I hope this post will not only empower you with knowledge, should you or someone you love require COVID-19 medical treatment; but also encourage you to pray for our physicians who are in uncharted territory with COVID-19 and learning as they go. Especially pray for those who have realized and are honest enough, humble enough, and courageous enough to openly admit that many of the COVID-19 deaths we are seeing are due to well intentioned but iatrogenic medical treatment.

“We have zero success for patients who were intubated. Our thinking is changing to postpone intubation to as long as possible, to prevent mechanical injury from the ventilator. These patients tolerate arterial hypoxia surprisingly well. Natural course seems to be the best.”
This is not your “typical ARDS”. Mechanical Ventilation may be doing harm. We need to think of alternative treatment strategies.

“…the knowledge we’ve gained with, gained it from a lot of mistakes we’ve made actually because we were hit as the second nation just after China and I guess we were a bit slow in recognizing the key patterns of this disease. We started, actually, with a what was the intubate more or less as fast as you can these patients. Sort of preemptive intubation after a very small CPAP or NIV challenge, and looking back we now recognize that this strategy does not work. It doesn’t work for the single patient because most often these patients don’t fair well once intubated; and frankly intubation does not prevent these people from deteriorating; and secondly, because it wasn’t feasible counting the number of patients we had. So we started off intubating far too many patients and this is the most important lesson we learned and we learned it the hard way obviously…So we gradually shifted from very small CPAP or NIV challenges trials; we shifted off to more pro-longed non invasive strategy and I must say that this has paid off really well. The percentage of patients that have been intubated has been gradually reducing and we have a much better selection now of the patients who really need invasive support..."

"I realize many questions came from the audience regarding L and H phenotypes, a concept which was rapidly assimilated by those reading and discussing day and night to stay at the cutting edge of the understanding of COVID physiology, so I am including the Gattinoni paper which is the source. For those still thinking of this as ARDS, understand that the single most published author and pre-eminent authority on that disorder states “this is not ARDS,” even if the H type, for those who progress to it – or evolve towards it due to initial management strategies, is fairly similar."
