Ivermectin has been used with good results as an aid to reduce Covid symptoms and in come cases cure it. The drug is highly effective and broad-spectrum, safe, well tolerated and can be easily administered
Yet the FDA and CDC continue to broadly hint at dangers using Ivermectin. Both organizations keep saying it is not safe because has not been proven to help with Covid. That’s a weird statement because the vaccines were not proven to help with Covid – they were, and still are, on an authorized test basis only.
Research into the history of Ivermectin:
Ivermectin was discovered in the 1970’s by Satoshi Omura, of the Kitasato Institute, Tokyo, Japan. He developed it from a single microorganism isolated in Japanese soil. It’s original use was to kill worms in horses and other large animals. In 1978 Omura succeeded in culturing a strain from which William Campbell purified a substance, avermectin, which in a chemically modified form of ivermectin, proved effective against worms causing river blindness and elephantiasis in humans in tropic-subtopic climates. It is now being used free-of-charge as the sole tool in campaigns to eliminate parasitic diseases globally. Link:
Ivermectin: From Soil to Worms, and Beyond, Adelaida Sarukhan , Scientific writer, 11-21-19
Thus, today it can be obtained for humans in both pill and cream form as well as higher dosages for animals.
Fortunately those two doctors were recognized for their work:
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2015, half went jointly to to William C. Campbell
and Satoshi Ōmura for avermectin and ivermectin. The other half to Professor Youyou Tu for her discoveries concerning a novel therapy against Malaria.
“…the discovery, development and deployment of ivermectin, produced…between the Private Sector pharmaceutical multinational Merck & Co. Inc., and the Public Sector Kitasato Institute in Tokyo…international partners…one of the greatest medical accomplishments of the 20th century…” Ivermectin successfully treats many other parasitic diseases listed here.

Now there are Global NTD (Neglected Tropical Diseases) campaigns to eliminate two of the world’s most disfiguring and devastating diseases, Onchocerciasis and Lymphatic filariasis, which blight the lives of billions of the poor and disadvantaged throughout the tropics – using mostly Ivermectin. Link:
A short, simple explanation of the above mentioned conditions: River blindness is caused by the worm Onchocerca volvulus. It is transmitted through repeated bites by blackflies that live near water. The worm attacks the eyes, causing blindness. Elephantiasis or Lymphatic Filariasis is caused by worms that reside in the lymph glands and cause swelling of arms, legs and genitals. Those areas swell so large the skin tears open. It is extremely painful. Women having had breast cancer lumps and lymph glands removed often suffer painful swelling in the removal area labeled Lymphedema and can sympathize.

The minimal side effects from this drug are well know. With a history of over 30 years, Ivermectin has been in constant use, has saved lives, has eased parasitic afflictions and continues to be given to children. Ivermectin’s positive treatment of Covid continues to be ignored by the FDA and CDC. Those organizations keep insisting vaccinations are the only cure for Covid and refuse to publicize a long list of vaccine side effects, some are detrimental to patient’s health, some will last for years if not lifetimes, and, yes, there have been deaths caused from Covid vaccines!

A new study of U.S. service members found higher than expected rates of heart inflammation following receipt of COVID-19 vaccines
Are the FDA and CDC’s objection rational? Vaccines are on a trial basis.
Why not also run trials with any and every promising drug to see what else works – which ones work best? After all, this is supposed to be a pandemic. Surely with something as catastrophic as a pandemic there should be an all-out effort to find several drugs that help. It’s no secret the human body is extremely complex. History has proven that no one drug is safe for everyone – that what works for one person may be harmful or cause side effects from allergies to life threatening complications for another.
But instead of trying other drugs the FED and CDC are restricting the availability of Ivermectin! Because of that restriction most drug stores can not or will not order it. It is almost impossible to find a doctor who will prescribe it, even for rosacea, an uncomfortable skin inflammation which effects many residents of the U.S.
Documented proof of the effectiveness of Ivermectin:
Rescue Group Doctors, in Puerto Plata, La Romana, and Punta Cana had success with more than 6,000 patients with Covid-19 treated with the drug ivermectin…
A woman so sick with covid went into a coma. Her daughter spent a lot of time and effort but eventually obtained permission from the hospital to give her mother Ivermectin. The Mother recovered!
“May 6, 2021 — A 68-year-old woman with COVID-19, who has been in intensive care in an Illinois hospital for a month, started receiving the controversial drug ivermectin…”
“Update: Nurije Fype is out of the hospital and has returned home…”
A five-day course of Ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19 may reduce the duration of illness
“…A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was conducted to determine the rapidity of viral clearance and safety of Ivermectin…The trial included 72 hospitalized patients in Dhaka, Bangladesh…There were no severe adverse drug events recorded in the study…”
…In a new scientific peer-reviewed study Ivermectin is being touted as a miracle
cure for COVID-19. This person wants to know “What the hell happened to My Body My Choice? This isn’t health care, this is tyranny!…”
We believe that the evidence to date supports the worldwide extension of IVM treatments for COVID-19,
A family friend in his 70’s was in the hospital with Covid. Instead of improving with the hospital medication he continued to get worse. His Doctor finally started giving him Ivermectin. Within a few days all traces of the Covid were gone. By this time he had pneumonia but has completely recovered.
My friend’s friend became sick with Covid. She was able to obtain and use Ivermectin. In a few days the virus was gone. She was weak for awhile but is back to work and feeling great. So with the above proof why the restriction on the drug?
Still the FDA insists: “When Can Taking Ivermectin Be Unsafe?
“The FDA has not authorized or approved Ivermectin for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19 in people or animals. Ivermectin has not been shown to be safe or effective for these indications.”
One has to wonder if the person/people writing the FDA/CDC statements have failed to do their homework or have accepted a bonus to write such untruths?
“Why Is the FDA attacking a Safe, Effective Drug? Ivermectin is a promising Covid treatment and prophylaxis, but the agency is denigrating it…Earlier this year the agency put out a special warning that “you should not use ivermectin to treat or prevent COVID-19…”
Mexico City achieved up to a 76% reduction in COVID hospitalizations by making Ivermectin-based home treatment kits widely available.”
The FDA and CDC continually warn people die from using the animal form of Ivermectin that can be obtained at many feed stores. Yes, that dosage is way too high for human consumption. But is there a chance that people who are afraid of the vaccine try the animal variety because the FDA and CDC have effectively banned the availability of Ivermectin? If so are they in fact responsible for those deaths?
What about trials with Regeneron? There’s proof it helps. In a “Sept. 29 news release that a high dose of the drug caused the level of the virus to decrease in patients in early clinical tests…”
Are the FDA and CDC out to protect Big Pharma and their income rather than allow other drugs to be tested along with the vaccines? One has to wonder.
Biden, the acting President of the United States and his Administration have cut Florida’s monoclonal antibody [including Regeneron] supply by 50% – knowing of Florida’s Governor, Ron DeSantis’ success with them: “Antibody treatments have been shown to significantly reduce the risk of hospitalization among COVID-19 patients in Florida…Nearly 100,000 treatments have been administered in Florida so far…Leon County’s clinic provides about 100 treatments a day…” Links:
There are several other websites available but here’s another example of our acting and unconcerned President and administration: “…In Alabama, there already exists a shortage in monoclonal antibody treatments, and with the U.S. government rationing how much of the treatment each state can receive, some experts are predicting an uptick in COVID-19 deaths that could possibly have otherwise been prevented…”
Here is a real eye opener: On Sept. 14, 2021, the Department of Defense (DOD) awarded a $2.9 billion contract modification to Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc., to purchase additional doses of REGEN-COV, which combines two monoclonal antibodies, casirivimab and imdevimab, to block the infectivity of SARS-CoV-2…”
Is Joe Biden such a monster that he put the inhabitants lives of the entire States of Florida and Alabama at risk? As President is he not supposed to be concerned with every human being in our Nation? Is he not supposed to be above a quest for bitter, political revenge? Especially to the point of endangering the lives of two States under his Presidency?
Are Joe Biden and his minions, his advisors that debased? Are they so criminally inclined as to deliberately murder people for the simple reason they do not want a rival to vaccination – murder them because they want treatment before they are forced to go to the hospital in critical condition?
Here is an important video decrying the non-use of monoclonal antibodies and over-the-counter medication to avoid hospitalization. This Doctor states his qualifications up front: Peter McCullough, MD testifies to Texas Senate HHS Committee, 3-11-21.
…Covid-19 has always been a treatable illness…double blind, randomized trial with over 4,000 people, a 50% reduction in mortality…antibodies effective…patients should be treated as soon as diagnosed…A travesty to have a fatal disease and not treat…as an outpatient…When doctors treated patients over 50, if treated early w/4-6 monoclonal antibodies [many available over-the-counter] there was over an 85% reduction in hospitalizations and death…! Video link:
Another friend in her 80’s had her doctor prescribe Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine to keep at home in case she became ill with Covid. That good doctor happened to agree with Dr. McCullough to treat Covid immediately and not wait until hospitalization was needed. But the FDA tried to recall those prescriptions and is making threats to take away the doctor’s license! All because that doctor was trying to fulfill their Hippocratic Oath to save and not endanger lives!
What are the FDA and CDC so afraid of that they must allow only vaccines? They have leveled such heavy restrictions most hospitals won’t use Ivermectin, Regeneron or even Hydroxychloroquine and most pharmacies won’t order them – even through there has been proven success with those drugs.
What about the people who need Ivermectin for a severe break-out of rosacea? Or those that have intestinal worms? Or those who fear the vaccines and wish to take their chances with Ivermectin?
Why is the majority of the medical profession bowing down to Biden, his minions, Big Pharma, et.al.? Why are so many of medical patients being badgered, even ordered to take the vaccine? Why are employers, the military and Federally connected employers insisting on vaccines that have actually proven to have debilitating side effects?
Doesn’t that sound like Hitler’s Germany? “Do as I say! Do not dare think for yourself!”
According to the Nuremburg Code, a Code established as a result of the vicious experiments done on human beings in Germany before and during WWII nothing foreign can be introduced into a human’s body unless that individual agrees. It is their body, their choice. The Nuremberg Code also specifies medical ethics.
Doesn’t it appear that Joe Biden, Dr. Fauci, their minions, et.al., are trying to destroy The Nuremberg Code? A Code that makes mandates from any source illegal.
Yes, a Government mandate is not legal!
The Nuremberg Code: The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential…!
One more thing: By mandating doctors and hospitals to insist patients take vaccine and not allowing other treatments – Biden, minions, et.al., are forcing the medical field to violate their Hippocratic Oath!
