Another drug to treat COVID embraced by health professionals, rejected by medical establishment

A new treatment for COVID cases is seeing many medical professionals and even state and national governments endorse its use, yet the larger medical establishment, such as the National Institutes of Health, are not on board.

“Treasure Valley pharmacists and officials are seeing more doctors prescribe ivermectin to treat and prevent COVID-19, going against the recommendations of federal and worldwide health officials, who say doing so can be dangerous,” Idaho Statesman reported last month.

NEVER GOOD ENOUGH?: Ivermectin is the latest drug to gain popularity for its ability to effectively treat COVID-19, yet the medical establishment is currently not supporting the remedy.

Ivermectin, a drug created in Japan in the 1970s, has been used to treat a variety of diseases, from head lice and parasitic worms to onchocerciasis, a parasitic disease spread by flies. Now it is being touted in Japan, Brazil and elsewhere as an effective treatment of COVID-19.

Most recently, Joe Rogan, the 54-year-old host of the popular “Joe Rogan Experience,” has tested positive for COVID and is taking ivermectin to fight the virus.

The National Institutes of Health reports ivermectin is also being evaluated “for its potential to reduce the rate of malaria transmission by killing mosquitoes that feed on treated humans and livestock.” The NIH adds ivermectin is “not approved for the treatment of any viral infection.”

However, the organization admits the drug has anti-inflammatory properties “which have been postulated to be beneficial in people with COVID-19.”

At least one nation has endorsed ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19. The Indian state of Goa is giving the drug to all adult residents in an attempt to reduce the harm caused by COVID-19 infections.

A similar response to hydroxychloroquine

This is not the first time the medical establishment and health professionals have been at odds over COVID-19 treatments. In the early stages of the virus, there was a disagreement over the use of hydroxychloroquine, which was endorsed by President Donald Trump, among others.

While early cases from users of the relatively affordable drug seemed to indicate strong success, the media and many in the medical establishment universally condemned its use as a Trump-related conspiracy.

  1. More information on what’s happening:

    A video by Klaus Schwab explaining the Fourth Industrial Revolution — the changes will come upon us like a ‘tsunami,’ we’re told.

    So as far as I can fathom, Covid-19 is being used to disrupt society in order for this Great Reset/Great Transition to take place because otherwise people would simply do what they’ve always done. This isn’t what the new technocrats want; what they want is a smoothly-running, technological, top-down system of social engineering according to their ideals of ‘the greater good.’ And, they’ll be running the show: they have the expertise to engineer and run smart cities, smart medicine, etc., etc., and coincidentally the profits from all this will be on their side of the ledger. Power, control, and profits. Where this is heading is vaccine passports that will be necessary because of all the death and destruction the Covid-19 variants are supposedly causing, but it’s likely that these variants are simply part of the engineering in this obviously-engineered crisis. Once vaccine passports are in place we’ll have a system of social credits like the Chinese system, and we can kiss our constitutional republic goodbye. So many people are so ready for this: they want to stay safe and now they’re being told that ‘freedom’ is a dirty word. The massive propaganda assault is part of the reach of this brave new technological world.

    Technology should serve human ends; we should guide it and direct it and manage it according to ideals of individual freedom. Instead, all this reset stuff is about making us subservient to technology and an engineered society– another one of the ‘dreams of reason.’ We get enough data and supposedly we can predict and manage everything, but this is just a dream.

  2. Several local farm supply stores have Ivermetin. It is relatively inexpensive and I haven’t had any side effects.

  3. Why should anyone be believing anything the creators of the virus, fauci and world
    health along with China, say on the matter.. why were experiments being done on a virus they had no vaccine for in the first place??? What we should be doing is making sure this crap NEVER happens again and using all available drugs that are WORKING to fight it.. the Vax isn’t working as it’s encouraging new stronger strains so the virus can survive.. The ivermectin is killing the virus not just making symptoms less…

  4. Thank you so much for doing real reporting. So refreshing from all the propaganda we are force fed.

    Well done, well done.

  5. Earl, my primary was on the same page as yours. I asked the questions and he gave me CDC answers. Then he told me he knows Fauci and believes in him! Time to hunker down and defend ourselves!

  6. My DO in West Brattleboro, absolutely tilted when I brought Ivermectin up as a treatment possibility! Then I mentioned DR. Malone and FLCCC and he told me it was all click bate??? Argued that the pharma was the one making money hand over fist, he did not want to listen to anything I had to say. I mentioned that at my age, I had a 99.4% chance of survival, and got the I do science, you do not (I have 8 years of science education behind me)… Every time I used facts or studies he responded with personnel thoughts and feeling, it was like I was talking to my 16 year old grandkid! I am looking for a FLCCC doctor who is local… Suggestions welcome

    • Earl,
      Similar responses and attitudes from my specialist. She refused, tried to talk me into getting the vax, and didn’t want to hear my science facts and studies. I just responded with thanks for your personal thoughts and feelings but the jab is not for me. I’m science educated (MS – Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry) and she knows that but it doesn’t help when these doctors have already been brainwashed, have their minds made-up, and won’t really listen to the science they say they believe in.

  7. This isn’t really a new treatment option, as it has been reported about since late 2020 and True North re-published a guide “How do I get COVID-19 Medication” August 9 2021, based on a guide updated 2/1/2021.
    What is new, is that despite the US government’s attempt to block information on Ivermectin, HCQ and other drugs and supplements- word is still getting around.
    Even today, WCAX is reporting that “Health Officials Warn People Not to Treat COVID With Drug For Livestock”, with no mention in the piece about there even existing a pharmaceutical version for humans. (Not the one from the Feed Store)
    For what reason the genius’ at the CDC and FDA want to prohibit these treatments is unknown, but it is happening.
    Israel and India both are reporting positive results, publishing studies and continuing to use these inexpensive drugs. The United States? zip, zero and nothing. We can speculate on the reasoning for this, but perhaps our time would be better spent pushing for acceptance of treatment options.
    The reoccurring theme to the treatment plans and studies seems to be early and prophylactic treatments, including a regimen of vitamins and minerals. I can think of no better plan than for the CDC and research hospitals to get moving on this- and until lord fauci gives his blessing- Having the previously published treatment guide and the drugs, vitamins and supplements at home for use if needed.
    It will be soon that lord fauci beats his chest over the C.1.2 variant, spewing his doomsday rhetoric about masks and vaccines and booster shots- rekindling fear into those Americans unable to think for themselves. The guides available to us now,
    and some common sense may prove life saving in the future, vaccinated or not.

  8. But if there’s an effective treatment there is no rationale for using dangerous vaccines with emergency approval. Besides, Ivermectin is cheap; no big money to be made using it. The public health authorities would rather make fun of people who have had to resort to buying Ivermectin horse paste as they are unable to procure a prescription for Ivermectin.

  9. If we have effective, non-vaccine treatments for Covid-19 (ivermectin is the most well-known of several) then there will be no need for vaccine passports. If there are no vaccine passports, there will be no need for anyone to show their papers. If there’s no need to show our papers, we are free citizens.

    Now, that’s a real problem.

  10. Great article for sure. It has been obvious to many that USA Gov’t and WHO and Fauchi have
    wanted to own Covid 19 as their personal property, AND to be treated with respect and fear.
    Zero questions allowed, zero alternative treatments may be mentioned or discussed.

    Yes! we must be respectful and extremely careful, and we should, why all this secrecy, DEMAND and put down?
