Follow the Science… Anyone, Anyone?

Wednesday, November 24th, 2021 - By Patrick T. McBriarty
The narrative current over the past 11-months has been overwhelmingly in support of vaccines.  The same time I was pursuing a regimen of repurposed, off-label prescription drugs, a modified diet, and boosting vitamins to fight off long-Covid.  In retrospect, from my experience, thousands in online support groups, and front-line doctors it is clear these medicines indeed work.  Today, I am no longer suffering from crushing fatigue, shortness of breath, malaise, and am beginning to really live again.  Although still not 100% these treatments have made a huge difference.

Hello… Effective Covid Treatments Do Exist

Saturday, October 23rd, 2021 - By Patrick T. McBriarty

My frustration now has a new focus.  The crying shame of the U.S. medical establishment’s resistance to recognize the value of Ivermectin as a remedy to mild, severe, and long-Covid-19 symptoms — particularly as huge segments of the population wait for vaccines and continue to get sick or die. There is a lot of good information to share with doctors about Ivermectin.  Certainly, IVM may not work for everyone, but with little or no side effects and potential upside against Covid-19 why not try it?

The “Penicillin” of Covid is Cheap – Is That The Problem?

Tuesday, March 9th, 2021 - By Patrick T. McBriarty
Fast approaching a year of dealing with Covid I am finally starting to feel better thanks to a friend of a friend and a Nobel prize winning substance, known in medical shorthand as IVM.  My journey is not over, but IVM has offered a major path to recovery which has been thwarted from the start.  This is my story… Mid-morning on March 23, 2020, I was knocked down with fatigue, slept for 2-1/2 hours and awoke to a growing malaise and brain fog.  Read More
