Treatments vs ‘a cure’ – flashback to 2020

Vitamin C and Intravenous Vitamin C/Thiamine therapy for cytokine storm are treatments that have a long history of safe and effective use. In early 2020 even vitamin C was getting discredited by the media and FDA as helpful and allowed treatments for Covid19. The post Treatments vs ‘a cure’ was a response to online bickering about there being no ‘cure’ for Covid19 – the implication being it is wrong to talk about how vitamin C can help then.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for vascular health and most everything else in a functioning body, indirectly if not directly.

Treatment is about providing all of the care a person needs when their health function is over stressed and possibly dysfunctional in some ways due to inflammation or infection effects. Treatment is well rounded to support various needs and reduce various symptoms.

Looking for a single ‘cure’ is a medical model viewpoint, based on the success of antibiotics, but also the success in early research days when finding and providing vitamin C was a fairly quick “cure” for scurvy – a deadly disease that was found to be “Vitamin C deficiency“. In that case the treatment was the cure. Vitamin D for rickets was also an early wonder cure that helped children grow up with straight and strong leg bones. Vitamin D fortification of milk and infant formula helped reverse that trend. Sadly scurvy is still occurring occasionally and medical professionals miss the diagnosis and simple cure – provide vitamin C.

Scurvy – severe vitamin C deficiency: “The modern doctor must keep this ancient disease in mind, as it presents insidiously with debilitating repercussions, particularly in older people who are at a higher risk. It is easily treatable once detected.” (1)

In the post Treatments vs ‘a cure’, I took a close look at a molecular docking study (3) that had grouped potential inhibitors for SARS-CoV-2 infection or replication into seven categories. I found that my selfcare treatments covered six of the seven categories, and citrus peel alone was potentially helping my infection selfcare in five of the seven ways. In total though I was using many items included in six of the seven categories. (3) SARS-CoV-2 can enter cells in many ways and spreads by exosomes – making many strategies necessary to block it or stop infected cells from remaining a latent infection.

The seven categories:

  1. PLpro inhibitors: “hesperidin and neohesperidin…might be the potential 3CLpro inhibitors and could probably be used for treating SARS-CoV-2.” (3) Citrus peel is a source of hesperidin and neohesperidin and vitamin C – L(+)-Ascorbic acid, quercetinoids, and other bioflavonoids like rutin. (13); Riboflavin-vitamin B2; Silybin – Milk Thistle; “epigallocatechin gallate, [EGCG]…exhibited high binding affinity to PLpro protein, suggesting the potential utility of these compounds in the treatment of SARS-CoV-2.” (3) EGCG – pomegranate peel and/or green tea. EGCG also acts as a zinc ionophore when zinc is available. (11); (–)- Rosmarinic acid – rosemary.
  2. 3C-like main protease (3CLpro) inhibitors: metabolite of riboflavin, Flavin mononucleotide, which a high dose vitamin B2 supplement might provide as the metabolite; Lutein – kale and other vegetables; and also hesperidin, neohesperidin, and rosmarinic acid.
  3. RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) inhibitors: silybin – Milk Thistle.
  4. Helicase (Nsp13) inhibitors: hesperidin, neohesperidin and other flavonoids. “The natural products, such as many flavanoids from different sources (α-glucosyl hesperidin, hesperidin, rutin, quercetagetin 6-O-β-D-glucopyranoside and homovitexin), …showed high binding affinity to this target.” (3) Rutin is found in green and black tea and a few other foods. Quercetagetin… seems to be a form of quercetin, which also can act as a zinc ionophore, (11) and is in citrus and pomegranate peel and many plants. Homovitexin is also called isovitexin and is found in cannabis and flaxseed and in a few other foods. (4)
  5. Targets inhibiting virus structural proteins: hesperidin, and “licoflavonol from Glycyrrhiza uralensis” -non DGL licorice root. “By superimposing the ACE2–RBD complex to the hesperidin–RBD complex, a distinct overlap of hesperidin with the interface of ACE2 could be observed (Fig. 6C), suggesting hesperidin may disrupt the interaction of ACE2 with RBD [the RBD section of the SPIKE protein]. ” (3)
  6. Targets inhibiting virulence factor: did not include any that I was taking.
  7. Targets blocking host specific receptor or enzymesneohesperidin and hesperidin from Citrus aurantium again, the two phytonutrients are also in the peel of other citrus species. (5) “The natural products, such as phyllaemblicin G7 from Phyllanthus emblica, xanthones from the plants of Swertiagenus, neohesperidin and hesperidin from Citrus aurantium, exhibited potentially high binding affinity to ACE2 protein. ” (3

Hesperidin is in five of the seven categories; neohesperidin in four; and riboflavin, silybin and rosmarinic acid might help in two ways. Pomegranate peel phytonutrients likely also can help in numerous ways.

Treatments are needed for multifactorial problems, and SARS-CoV-2 or chimeric spike effects include multiple routes of possible harm. To ‘cure’ this – we need many treatments.

FDA approves CoV injection EUA for infants and children

Children are being harmed already. The EUA for children will remove liability risk for adult use of a vak product.

A comment to the FDA board,

Normal channels are compromised. Expecting reason or respect for human rights from the people in charge of this is not working. Citizens’ arrests are needed of all in charge, all involved, and quickly, before more children are maimed or killed.

Children make up a small percent of all people in total, and of all who have received CoV injections. And the percent of children who died of CoV makes up an even smaller percent of total.

This has never been an infection emergency for children. Lockdown, masking, the changes in society, those have been harmful to children.

Marburg, WHO, and Facial Recognition/Digital ID

A video to watch:

Please share- we need as many as possible to be aware of this- Digital ID or Digital Prison- Presentation by Aman Jabbi. Live streamed to Central Coast community NSW on 2nd June 2022. Video post on Facebook.

Aman was at the forefront of video and camera technology in Silicon Valley. He has co-founded two camera startups. If you have a camera in your phone, stream video or movies, he played a part in it. Aman has a BS in Electrical & Electronics Engineering and MS in Chemistry from BITS in India, an MS in Electrical Engineering from Penn State University and studied Computer Science at Stanford University.

Have a listen to hear more about the smart cities infrastructure and implications, as its planned to descend upon us sometime soon! Newcastle is named as one of the first trial smart cities in Australia. You’ll also hear concepts such as: stakeholder capitalism, 4th Industrial revolution, digital real estate, the metaverse, lock down matrix, carbon credits, social credit score, facial recognition technology, public private partnership- all the concepts discussed by the WEF technocrats at Davos 22-26th May 2022.

Highlights from the video – a plan that may be underway – speculatively –

  • Step 1. The injections may contain preplanned future epidemics with pathogenic infections that can be triggered by certain EMF frequencies – 5G or other. Marburg hemorrhagic fever may be on the way.
  • Step 2. Use the ‘epidemic’ to increase WHO or other international control of individual nations.
  • Step 3. Increase control of citizens through digital ID and social credit system using facial recognition or other biotech.

Marburg virus – a rare but potentially deadly filovirus that causes hemorrhagic fever similar to Ebola. The family of filovirus also includes the less deadly Herpes virus.

Phytonutrients that may help against Marburg or similar virus include Melissa officinalis extract, (1), Ellagic acid from Rhodiola rosea, (2), and pomegranate whole fruit/peel extract. Pomegranate peel is also an excellent source of ellagic and gallic acid, and punicalagin, which are related to catechins. (4)

Extract of Rhodiola rosea displayed specific and potent inhibition against cell entry of both Ebola virus and Marburg virus. In addition, twenty commercial compounds that were isolated from Rhodiola rosea were evaluated using the pseudotyped Ebola virus entry assay, and it was found that ellagic acid and gallic acid, which are two structurally related compounds, are the most effective ones.” (2)

Of the five best chemicals for binding with SARS-CoV RBD spike domain – two are found in pomegranate – punicalagin and Epigallocatechin, gallate: “(A) Glycyrrhizin, [licorice root] (B) Nepritin, [3], (C) Punicalagin, (D) Epigallocatechin, gallate [EGCG], and (E) Theaflavin, [extract from black tea, also related to catechins (6)].” (5)

The catechins and gallic acid group include EGCG from green tea and pomegranate. The whole fruit extract of pomegranate or peel extract is a potent anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory, microbiome and immuno-modulator. It may also help with regeneration of hippocampal cells.

EGCG is a polyphenol in green tea and in the peel of pomegranates. It has been found to help regrow hippocampal cells which are the type that are damaged to the point of cell death in Alzheimer’s dementia:

Subsequently, another investigation demonstrated that administration of EGCG in adult hippocampal neural progenitor cell (NPC) cultures and in denate gyrus of adult mice improved spatial cognition thereby promoting adult neurogenesis. … [732]. ” (7)

Pomegranate or tea catechins may help reduce age related degeneration by promoting beneficial epigenetic changes. (8, 9)

Pomegranate can help inhibit mast cells which helps reduce a variety of inflammatory conditions including seasonal allergies and potentially long term risk of Alzheimer’s dementia.

Regarding mast cells and pomegranate extract: “Pomegranate extract (POMx) inhibits inflammation from activated human mast cells involved with connective tissue destruction and proteolytic activity associated with cartilage destruction, providing potential benefit for treating inflammatory diseases in which mast cells play an active role (Zafar et al. 2009).” (61)

For the Reference (61) and more information, see the document: Misfolded Proteins, H1 and NMDA Receptors, or Substack post: Hyperinflammation – A positive feedback loop leading to Alzheimer’s?.

Hyperinflammation, a positive feedback loop. Stress leads to NF-kB which inhibits Nrf2, which we need for cell and mitochondria maintenance.
Modern Life – Promoting NF-kB.
Is hyperinflammation a causal factor in Alzheimer’s dementia? Is the misfolded protein accumulation a result of increased inflammatory white blood cell activity rather than the cause? Allergy or autoimmune damage within the brain?

Twitter suspension – claim two accounts is a violation

Sadly my main and back up Twitter accounts have been suspended. I have appealed as the claim is that my secondary account “violated the rules by evading a permanent suspension” roughly, I had never been suspended though. The rules are clear that you can’t make a fake account that is trying to falsify a person. My accounts were clearly just both me – I thought of the second as a business account for a more self care focus with my & sites.

Update – my @deNutrients account got suspended for my quote of a CoV Tweet and then the @selfcarerocks account was considered ‘evading a permanent suspension’ and got closed second.


I am sad about lost work and lost community and free speech. Hopefully the appeal will work.

Thanks everyone who has been supportive of my work!

“Shadow banning is real. When Twitter was hacked images of their internal tools were released and it shows individual accounts can be blacklisted.” – @zeals_eth

My Twitter accounts both had Shadow Bans and it limited what I could see of other people’s Tweets as well as limiting who could see what I Tweeted. Free speech isn’t free, and social media is not your own property.

Thanks everyone who has been interested in my preventive health ed info.

I can browse Twitter and look up specific words or accounts but I no longer can interact at all. I can see some of my Tweets but they show up as Suspended Account to any other readers.

Be cautious – The US and other national guidance is censoring many topics and defining some as terrorism. The idea that a social media platform allows free speech is flawed if your government might arrest you for it.

Be cautious – and remember I am not dead, just shut out of a community that I enjoyed since 2011. Breaking our spirit is part of the mass psychosis messaging. Hold the line!

I can still see some of my Tweet history – what I can find with search words – and I copied this long Thread with some speculative history about the US and WWII aftermath & the MK Ultra program: (document). One of the source links is no longer working but I copied some long quotes from it and summarized key points.

You can find me on Telegram though – link to my chat group:
