How a top doctor drugged & molested a more junior doctor, & how he nearly got away with it:

“My [physician] friend insisted I be taken somewhere for testing ... If my friend hadn’t done that and taken me to a lab, if we waited until Monday for the urine test, the drugs would have left my system … I could not have done it without the support I had, which a lot of people don’t have.”

Respect to the two friends.

Parathyroid and Calcium Management

The parathyroid glands are hormone producing glands making them part of the endocrine system. They are located behind the left and right lobes of the thyroid gland (usually two on each side).

The primary function is regulation of blood calcium by production of a hormone called parathormone (parathyroid hormone). Parathormone is triggered from low blood calcium and acts to increase blood calcium levels by taking calcium out of the bone and putting it into the blood stream.

Abnormal Function Associated with:

  • bone degeneration
  • kidney stone formation
  • hypercalcemia/hypocalcemia
  • multiple endocrine neoplasia
  • joint pain/bone pain
  • poor immune response

Parathyroid glands are often removed when dysfunctional however, holistic strategies focus on underlying causes.

The healthy public is not going to mask in any numbers unless state health departments strongly recommend it.

It’s ok to be unhappy with people who complain about or discriminate against those who wear masks. It’s unhelpful to be angry at people who don’t themselves mask in the absence of state or employer advocacy.

Anger at of this kind promotes reactive anger. And endless futile anger is unhealthy for the angry.

The protein p38 also has those ties and de-regulation of it is a key research therapy, but past inhibitors used produce toxic side effects.

Now, IRB Barcelona scientists have made a non-canonical inhibitor that stops p38 autophosphorylation, but doesn't affect its normal regulatory pathway much.

That said, a bit of promising research is starting to surface.

I'm taking the unusual step of emailing EVERYONE because at this point
many of you with anxiety and depression symptoms may have some Long
COVID (brain fog, sleep issues, the depression or anxiety itself!).

A good write-up about what Long COVID is can be found here.  Yes, you
can had a trivial case of COVID-19 and still get Long COVID symptoms for
days, weeks, months, or years.  Some cases of it are somewhat "mild":

*The bottom-line of the video is right at the end.  For long COVID:
-- Get outside one hour per day.
-- May cover up if sensitive to sun (near UV rays will get through
clothing anyway)
-- Best if in nature (surrounded by green)
-- Do not look directly at sun (duh)
-- May wear a hat (near UV rays will get through clothing anyway)
-- Sitting in a sunny window no longer good enough (most glass now has
to be certified to block the rays we want)

He also promises to talk about how intermittent fasting may help in a
future video.

He is Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Disease, Critical

more accessible videos for the general public on COVID-related topics.
