    Pre-existing COVID-19 Immunity In 20%-50% Of People - Better Than Vaccines?

    A fascinating article that is unfortunately not getting any coverage in mainstream media (MSM). The review is published in BMJ, which is both surprising and also gives it that much more weight. That may be a reason why it is not being covered by MSM - because it argues not only in favor of...

    Memory T CELLS COVID 19

    I’m starting this thread to add to as more develops on memory T Cells in relation to covid19. The idiots are trying to justify mass tracking and immunity passports based solely on antibodies when we should now be testing for T cells. We all have living experience of COVID19’s exaggerated...

    Herd Immunity To COVID19 ?

    The mainstream media and our rulers were pumping herd immunity as goal at the start then a myth and now here we are close to herd immunity according to this research. It’s clear covid19 is a political exercise, the narrative in the media is will try to claim it was stupidity from politicians as...

    Raising NAD Levels May Be Therapeutic For COVID-19

    A rather timely study, which demonstrates once again the crucial role energy plays even in "non-metabolic" diseases such as viral infections. At this point, even mainstream medicine admits that every function of the organism requires energy, so it would be plausible to expect an organism with...

    Restoring Energy Production In Immune Cells Is Therapeutic In Cancer

    The title of the popular press article is kind of the reverse of mine - i.e. cancer cells evade treatment by blocking energy production in immune cells (T-cells). However, my title still holds since the actual study did show that restoring energy production in T-cells restores the effectiveness...

    Vitamin C And Immuno-Oncology

    Just posting this to keep people aware that after mocking Linus Pauling for half a century mainstream medicine now seems eager to embrace his therapies of cancer using high-doe vitamin C. Unfortunately, it appears even staff writers at ScienceMag are unaware that therapies with vitamin C have...

    Vaccines & Immunity 2 - KMUD, 2014-07-18

    Glucose Is Anabolic For Thymus, Opposes Catabolic Effects Of Cortisol

    As most of my readers know, cortisol is a highly catabolic steroid and one of the main agents (estrogen being another) responsible for thymus atrophy with age. These catabolic effects of cortisol can be blocked by progesterone, DHEA, pregnenolone, and even DHT (but not by testosterone). The...

    Vitamin D - The New Antibiotic Against Skin And Gut Infections

    A great new study demonstrating the crucial role of vitamin D in maintaining proper immune function. The study demonstrates that maintaining normal levels of vitamin D is strongly protective against gut infections by Salmonella-type bacteria. Interestingly, the authors claim that vitamin D is...

    Estrogen And Cortisol, Not Androgens, Suppress Immunity

    There is a very famous theory in reproductive biology still considered the dominant one in its field. Namely, males have to accept a trade-off between androgen levels and immunity. It is known as the immunocompetence handicap hypothesis (ICHH). Higher androgen levels, the theory goes, allow the...

    Suppressed Immunity, Not Viruses (HPV), May Be The Cause Of (skin) Cancer

    Recently, I posted some threads in regards to immunosuppression and cancer. Here are two that provide a good overview and tie together the immunosuppressive effects of PUFA, estrogen, and cortisol with the protective effects of vitamin A, E, D, progesterone, etc. PUFA Are Immunosuppressive...

    Vitamin D May Stop Melanoma Growth

    A great study that corroborates my recent post on avoiding sunlight being as bad for health as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day. After all, without sunlight there won't be much vitamin D synthesis and supplementation is not effective for many people due to variety of factors including excess...

    PUFA Are Immunosuppressive, Fasting And Protein Restriction (possibly) Even More So

    Several great studies, which quickly illustrate the connection between PUFA, immune system, estrogen, cortisol, cancer and the protective role vitamin A/E play as well as their likely mechanism(s) of action. As I mentioned on one of the first podcasts with Danny Roddy, the role of PUFA as...

    Avoiding Sunlight May Be As Bad For Health As Smoking A Pack A Day

    As most readers of this blog know, the current recommendations of the American Dermatology Association (ADA) call for pretty much no sun exposure of any skin areas unless those areas have been "protected" by sunscreen. The same recommendation applies to tanning beds and makes not distinction of...

    Aspirin May Treat Tuberculosis By Improving / Restoring Innate Immunity

    Yet another trick that old dog aspirin knows. While it may not actually be potent enough to cure the infection by itself (as the study shows) it potently reduces the infectious burden, which may allow patients to resume normal living habits and survive as if they did not have an infection at...

    Morphostasis Theory Of Immunity Confirmed - Body Treats Heart Attack Like Viral Infection

    Peat has touched upon his views of the immune system in several articles, mostly related to autoimmune disease. In his view, the role of the immune system is not so much to "attack" foreign pathogens that threaten the organism, but is more akin to sanitation workers who clean up trash and other...
