Hernia repair by cell proliferation / anabolic process / herbal poultice

 Hernia  of  abdominal  wall  image  

Need healing from a hernia  which  you’ve had for years and best not to try  more surgery? Did surgery fail for you?  What else can you do which  may help?  What about a herbal poultice?        

A hernia is like an iceberg. The majority of damage is below the surface. In most cases, all the damage below must be repaired before the bulge recedes or go away. This takes time and it may seem to you that nothing is happening because you still see the bulge but not so. Here are the layers of tissue which makes up the abdomen wall. 

https://www.naeturalhealthinformation.com/hnh-herbal-comfrey-poultice.html

All the layers of the abdominal wall need to heal — all 9 layers:

“There are nine layers to the abdominal wall: skin, subcutaneous tissue, superficial fascia, external oblique muscle, internal oblique muscle, transversus abdominis muscle, transversalis fascia, preperitoneal adipose and areolar tissue, and peritoneum. Nerves, blood vessels, and lymphatics are present throughout.

For 30 years, Hunter’s Natural Health provides products to assist in the natural healing of hernias. Read the testimonials.   Learn about the process.

A herbal poultice  may provide healing and relief from your hernia.    Why not give it a try?   Help your body rebuild  itself.

Take hydroxychloroquine, zinc & an anti-biotic IF you experience CCP Virus symptoms & test positive?

Got COVID?   Why not, with medical OK,  immediately take hydroxychloroquine, zinc & antibiotic for a  week IF you experience CCP virus symptoms and test positive?  You got to take charge of your health decisions and do so using rational thought.  Don’t trust the “medical experts” like Dr. Fauchi and local health officers.

Why wait until you are so sick that you then  seek hospital aid? Current reports about what to do shed little light on what you can do which won’t hurt you.

For example —

Let’s  hypothesize that you call your MD  and say that  your symptoms are chills,  a cough, severe body aches and a horrible   headache.  Your MD  tells you to s take 2 Bufferin every 4-6 hours, drink lots of water  and call  him back in  the morning.  That’s a standard medical treatment  protocol  for possible symptoms of flu.

That  MD would not   also inquire  who were all your Contacts this past week and have those Contacts  also take the same medical regime  of  2 Buffern  every 4-6 hours  in order to prevent them from experiencing the  flu like symptoms  (chills, body aches, cough) which   you are experiencing.

Yet  that’s exactly  what some European  researchers did when inquiring into the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine.   Persons who said they had symptoms of COVID  provided Contacts and a thousand Contacts got a medical regime compared to a thousand who got  a “fake” regime.   And guess what  — there was no statistically significant difference.   So the researchers conclude that use of hydroeychloroqine  is not effective.

Check it out for yourself.     https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/nejmoa2021801

Armour Thyroid compared with synthetic improves “quality of life” for users

Remarkable study comparing Armour Thyroid and levothyroxine.

Several studies have shown that many patients with hypothyroidism on levothyroxine replacement report that they have   “low quality-of-life.” issues.  Overall finding of this study is that real thyroid replacement (brand name Armour) improves “quality of life” issues  with greater weight loss also reported.  Using Armour twice a day is recommended for some patients.  Details below:

An alternative to levothyroxine replacement for patients
with hypothyroidism is desiccated thyroid that comes from pig thyroid, of which the most common brand is Armour Thyroid.

Armour Thyroid has been in use for almost 100 years (since
the 1920s) although it went out-of-favor about 25 years ago with more doctors prescribing synthetic levothyroxine. However recently there has been an added interest in using Armour
Thyroid and other formulations of desiccated thyroid, partly because of the low quality-of-life
some patients have on levothyroxine replacement and partly because of an interest in patients to  use something they consider “more natural” and less synthetic.

Most endocrinologists andconsensus guidelines by the American Thyroid Association still recommend the use of synthetic
levothyroxine and to avoid desiccated thyroid, in part due to the erroneous belief that desiccated
thyroid is not standardized. .  It IS standardized.

In the May 2013 issue of Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23539727, Huang and colleagues from the Walter Reed Medical National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland published the results of a
randomized crossover study in which 70 patients completed the study and received either desiccated thyroid or levothyroxine replacement. In the introduction to this paper they commented that the T4 and T3 content of desiccated thyroid preparations, especially Armour
Thyroid, has now been standardized. They cited a paper by JC Lowe published in the journal
Thyroid Science in 2009 states that it is that Armour Thyroid has indeed been standardized so
that 1 grain of Armour Thyroid contains 38 µg of L-T4 and 9 µg of liothyronine (T3).
The 2013 study by Huang and colleagues used to a conversion factor that 1 mg of Armour
Thyroid was equivalent to 1.67 µg of levothyroxine to determine equivalent dosing between the
two preparations. Patients were on a stable dose of levothyroxine and had a normal TSH beforethe study started. Half of them were then initially given Armour Thyroid and half of them
continued on the levothyroxine. 78 patients were randomized and 70 concluding the study, with 35 received Armour Thyroid at the beginning and 35 received levothyroxine at the beginning.
The dose of either the levothyroxine or the Armour Thyroid was adjusted after six weeks so that
the TSH was between 0.5 and 3.0. They continued on that dose for an additional 10 weeks. After 16 weeks, patients were switched over to the other compound with the same adjustment at 6weeks and continued for another 10 weeks.

TESTING:   At the beginning of the study and at the end of each 16 weeks session, the patient underwen  thyroid function test, biochemical testing, memory testing (the Wechsler memory scale), a  depression inventory, and a thyroid symptom questionnaire.

They compare the results before and  after treatment for each group.

There was not a statistical improvement in symptoms for general
health questionnaires or neuropsychological testing, however there was a trend toward
improvement in these tests for the group that took the desiccated thyroid compared to the
levothyroxine replacement group. There was a 2.86 pound weight loss among the group that took
the desiccated thyroid compared to the levothyroxine group that was significant. Patients on
Armour Thyroid did get a slightly lower HDL level that is the good cholesterol, so that could be
a potential detriment to Armour replacement.
TSH was slightly higher in the group on Armour Thyroid then in the group on levothyroxine, so
possibly if the dose of Armour Thyroid was a little bit higher (the authors recommended 1 mg of
Armour Thyroid = 1.47 µg of levothyroxine), the TSH would have been lower and more
improvement might have been seen with the Armour Thyroid. Both total T4 and free T4 were
much lower on the Armour Thyroid than on levothyroxine replacement indicating that patients
on Armour Thyroid need an additional low dose of levothyroxine, as Dr. Friedman often
prescribes. Total T3 went up on Armour Thyroid as expected. Baseline (on stable levothyroxine
replacement) reverse T3 (a test used by many functional medicine doctors and other nonEndocrinologists to track poor T4 to T3 conversion) was above the range in many of the patients
suggesting that levothyroxine replacement increases reverse T3 and did go down with the
Armour Thyroid compared to the levothyroxine replacement. This suggests that levothyroxine
raises reverse T3 and Armour Thyroid lowers it, but doesn’t conclude that patients with an
elevated reverse T3, either on no treatment or on levothyroxine replacement need to go on
desiccated thyroid.
Most importantly, 49% of the patients preferred Armour Thyroid, 19% preferably levothyroxine
and 33% did not notice a difference. This was important as the study was blinded and they didn’t
know which thyroid preparation they were taking and indicates some subtle improvement in how
they were feeling with Armour Thyroid. The subgroup that preferred Armour Thyroid lost even
more weight; they lost 4 pounds on Armour Thyroid compared to levothyroxine. They had better
well-being and their thyroid symptoms were significantly better with better cognitive function on
Armour Thyroid compared to when they were on levothyroxine. This suggests that a subset of
patients need Armour Thyroid as opposed to levothyroxine alone. These patients may be poor
converters of T4 to T3.
There were no side effects in the Armour Thyroid group; specifically there was no increase in
heart rate or pulse.
The authors concluded that improvement with Armour Thyroid may not be detected by the
relatively insensitive methods used in the study. They also concluded that once-daily desiccated
thyroid in place of levothyroxine caused modest weight loss and possible improvements in
symptoms and mental health without appreciable adverse effects. They recommended studies
with a longer duration to clarify the efficacy and safety of desiccated thyroid.
Dr. Friedman has several comments on this paper. First he found it to be a very well designed
and well executed study done by a reputable group and published in a superb journal. He notes
that the Armour Thyroid was given as a single dose once a day without levothyroxine. Since
Armour Thyroid contains T3 that has a short half-life, Dr. Friedman prescribes Armour Thyroid
twice a day with additional levothyroxine. He suspects that if the study gave Armour Thyroid
twice a day plus levothyroxine supplementation those patients would have done even better than
on once a day Armour Thyroid. This study clearly refuted that Armour Thyroid is inferior to
levothyroxine.
The study also pointed out the importance of trying to determine the subset of patients to put on
desiccated thyroid. A significant subset of patients did prefer the desiccated thyroid. Those who
preferred desiccated thyroid were more likely to have autoimmune thyroid disease and had a
slightly higher reverse T3, although neither of these were significant. The study examined all
patients with hypothyroidism on levothyroxine replacement, most of whom were doing well. If
the study used the subset of patients who were on levothyroxine replacement and feeling poor,
Dr. Friedman surmises that they would have done even better on desiccated thyroid. Many of the
patients who come to see Dr. Friedman have a low quality-of-life on levothyroxine replacement.
If your doctor refuses to prescribe desiccated thyroid, show him the 2013 article or better yet,
come out and see Dr. Friedman.

Live in CA & Test POSITIVE for COVID-19 virus. What to do?

What to do when  you test POSITIVE for the  COVID-19 virus aka  the CCP virus?

This post concerns COVID-19 aka the CCP virus   and, in particular,  what’s happening in  Santa Cruz County, California.    For  general information on COVID-19   for Santa Cruz County CA, read the  Good Times  click  HERE.  For  world wide information from  The Epoch Times on COVID-19  aka CCP Virus,  click HERE.

Recently,  on  Santa Cruz California radio station  KSCO (1080 AM)   Psychologist  Cameron Jackson, Ph.D.,  asked   Health official Gail Newel,  MD what medical treatment the County  recommends  for people who test  positive for the  COVID-19 virus.  Dr. Newel  is the  Health Officer  for the county of Santa Cruz, California.  The  question and answer  interview with Dr. Newel  is available in the archives of  KSCO (1080 AM).

Gail Newel,  MD,  replied that people should rest and take lots of liquids.  In response  Dr. Jackson said.  “What you are recommending is what people typically do for the flu.   As you well know,  the CCP virus kills people by the thousands.   And   there are treatment protocols that do work.”

Gail Newel, MD  said there were some medicines are   “in the works”  but  she could not name any specific ones.

In response, psychologist  Dr. Jackson said:  “There are   treatment protocols — such as hydroxychloroquine  coupled with zinc and an antibiotic —  which are available with a prescription.  Zinc can be bought over the counter and the other two require a prescription.”    Dr. Newel replied  that research did not support those medications.  Dr. Jackson disagreed. “Will you read  the research if I send it to you?’ asked Dr. Jackson.

Dr. Gail Newel  is the top health official for Santa Cruz County in California.  In that position, Dr. Newel   makes decisions which affect Santa Cruz county residents in many ways e.g.,  which businesses can open, whether  and at what times people can go to the local beaches s and when  and where  face masks must be worn.

So what should YOU do if you get a POSITIVE diagnosis of COVID-19 aka the  CCP Virus?

For openers, don’t rely on what the Health Officer for  Santa Cruz County has to say.  Dr.. Gail Newel,   Health Officer for Santa Cruz County CA,  has not read the current research which says that persons newly diagnosed (not hospitalized, not on oxygen) can be helped  considerably by a combination of hydroxychloroquine  with zinc and an antibiotic.

What to do?  Get the required prescriptions and do the treatment with the say so of your physician.   Some persons, for example those who take Bystolic (blood pressure medication. ) cannot take hydroxychloroquine.  There’s another medicine typically given for parasites that can be used.

How to stay up to date on COVID-19 aka CCP virus? One excellent source of information is  TheEpochTimes   which has world wide coverage.  California currently leads the world  with 62,701  COVID-19  deaths and 3770,150 cases.

Real face of Marxism: ‘racial justice’ for Blacks only in San Francisco

Let’s help create Marx’s  ‘classless society’ in San Francisco  by favoring Blacks?   Government has gotta get rid of income gaps between Blacks and others?
     London Breed, the Mayor of San Francisco, recently announced an innovative new program designed to provide financial support for women expecting a child both during the pregnancy and for six months after the baby is born.
 Breed said in a statement. “The Abundant Birth Project is rooted in racial justice and recognizes that Black and Pacific Islander mothers suffer disparate health impacts, in part because of the persistent wealth and income gap.”
Given the costs associated with prenatal care, medical expenses and the costs associated with raising an infant, that’s a nice idea, isn’t it?
I’m sure plenty of mothers-to-be could use that sort of help. But as with so many things in this world, there’s a catch.

Or a couple of catches, actually. First of all, it won’t be available to everyone. You have to be selected by the people in charge of the project.

Oh, and don’t bother applying if you happen to be a Native American, Latina, or White woman expecting a child. The offer only applies if you are either Black or of Pacific-Islander background. (Yahoo News)

Maybe San Francisco’s mayor hopes to change life expectancy for Black babies aborted by Black moms?  In New York City more babies are aborted by Black mothers-to-be than are born.

Check out Facebook  page for Alida Stevens for  the skinny on cockroach pets.

Alida Stevens just put up on Facebook some pictures showing  what’s happening to our Aptos CA  beaches laden with ash from the fire.  

By the way, what the heck do you feed cockroach pets? Gotta keep those pets safe ’til they can get back to their owner.

Recall CA Gov. Gavin Newsom? Why & What you can do ….? Wake up Santa Cruz County & every CA citizen

Why recall  now   CA Gov. Gavin Newsom?

Think about  our CA children:     Gov. Newsom closed all  schools.

Children need schools for social reasons, to learn from real human beings in one-to-one interactions, and to feel good about themselves.

Suicide rates among  middle school and older children are rising.  Kids are killing themselves because of Gov. Newsom.   He   closed  all  schools & caved to teachers’ unions’ demands.  CA  teacher unions seek  to de-fund the police, a  moratorium on all  charter schools or voucher programs and no more standardized testing.    Newsom’s actions  by supporting the demands of teachers’ unions harms every student in CA.

Think about safety:  Newsom loosed 180,000+ violent felons back into  local  CA coumunities.

And Newsom apologized to the felons for locking them up.  What’s happening to safety of our local communities?

Think  about the idiocy of Newsom’s “essential services”:  Pot shops are open.  Churches must stay closed.

 Think about jobs:    Most of the CA  economy remains  shut-down. Gavin Newsom did it a second time!    Newsom  again shut down the economy of CA which was 5th largest in the world before pandemic.  Lockdowns don’t work.  Look at Europe which has re-opened and some European countries did not close.

Think  1st Amendment encroachments:   your right to speak your mind, freely assemble, congregate at a church and on the beach.

So, what can you do  about California  Gov. Gavin  Newsom?   Recall him!   Download a petition, get neighbors to sign it and MAIL it in.

You can help recall Newsom.  Spread the word about RecallGavin2020.com  Download Petition/ Instructions at RecallGavin2020.com   Mail Petitions to California PatriotCoalition  PO BOX 417030 Sacramento CA 95841.

Invite a Muslim to church? Less female genital mutilation? More apostasy? Islamic women’s lives matter

Muslim women’s sex lives matter just as much as Black Lives Matter and all lives matter.

Eliminating the Islamic  practice  female genital mutilation  will improve Muslim women’s sex lives.  One thing U.S. Christians can do is invite a Muslim family to church.  Maybe the family  will come back and choose to identify Christian.

Of the 3.5 MILLION Muslims in the U.S. about 100,000 abandon Islam each year.   More than half  of Muslims living in the U.S. abandon religion entirely and 22% now identify as Christian.

Ex-Muslims living in the west spread savvy messages, denounce Islam and help atheists flee to the West says Daniel Pipes in WSJ article When Muslims Leave the Faith.

Got Covid-19 symptoms? Quick! Get hydroxychloroquine & up-to-date medical advise

To prevent Covid-19, you must take care of yourself.   Ignore Dr. Fauci’s advise and read up on the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloriquine.

Should you get Covid-19 symptoms, consider taking  the   anti-malaria drug President Trump takes as a preventative measure:  Hydroxychloroquine .  Of course, get appropriate, up-to-date medical advise based on latest findings. Contact your doctor and get a prescription.   Taken early, the drug often prevents hospitalization and less severity of symptoms. 

The drug is available from CanadaPharmacyOnline.com     You need a prescription.  The process is easy to do and takes a few minutes to set up an account and place an order.  Then have your doctor FAX or Email the appropriate prescription.   They ask that you send your bank account routing number and account number to them to verify that they are correct.   The  FAX number  for Canada Pharmacy Online  is 866 930 3784.   

The following from Real Clear Politics:

Easy and cheap:   ” Hydroxychloroquine costs 60 cents a tablet, it can be taken at home, and a course of therapy simply requires swallowing three tablets in the first 24 hours followed by one tablet every 12 hours for five days.

It works:    “There are now 53 studies that show positive results of hydroxychloroquine in COVID infections. There are 14 global studies that show neutral or negative results — and 10 of them were of patients in very late stages of COVID-19, where no antiviral drug can be expected to have much effect. Of the remaining four studies, two come from the same University of Minnesota author. The other two are from the faulty Brazil paper, which should be retracted, and the fake Lancet paper, which was.

“Millions of people are taking or have taken hydroxychloroquine in nations that have managed to get their national pandemic under some degree of control.

“Two recent, large, early-use clinical trials have been conducted by the Henry Ford Health System and at Mount Sinai showing a 51% and 47% lower mortality, respectively, in hospitalized patients given hydroxychloroquine. A recent study from Spain published on July 29, two days before Margaret Sullivan’s strafing of “fringe doctors,” shows a 66% reduction in COVID mortality in patients taking hydroxychloroquine. No serious side effects were reported in these studies and no epidemic of heartbeat abnormalities.

“This is ground-shaking news. Why is it not being widely reported?

“Why is the American media trying to run the U.S. pandemic response with its own misinformation?

Aptos Psychologist:   Since mainstream media is joined at the hip with the Democrat Party — and  both show Trump derangement  syndrome  — the mainstream media reports only what it thinks will show Trump in a bad light.   Nothing new!.    What say you?

Citizen outcry against lock down, mask wearing, fines in Santa Cruz County

Citizens  assembled and spoke against the lock down, against wearing masks and  why they dislike possible   fines for not wearing masks.   The Board of Supervisors in Santa Cruz County CA listened.    

‘No masks!   Don’t criminalize people! Put masks on the  criminals  Gov. Newsom let out  of prison &  return  those criminals  to prison’ ! 

 ‘That cheap anti-malaria drug  hydroxycloroquine  works fine!’   ‘Masks keep people   from breathing properly!’ 

 Such were some of the comments by residents of Santa Cruz County to the Board of Supervisors.   

Live-streamed  on the  Santa Cruz Board of Supervisor’s Facebook page,   some  8-10  persons spoke  strongly 8/4/2020  in opposition to requirements to wear face masks and fines for not wearing them.  Click HERE to access live stream for Santa Cruz County CA Board of Supervisors.

A few more quotes from people speaking to Santa Cruz County’s Board of Supervisors 8/4/2020:

An older man said:   There’s no peer review double blind studies done that support wearing masks.    Anthony Fauci  MD originally said not to wear masks.  The Surgical General wrote 3/31 that masks are detrimental to our health. 

‘Various  MDs have lost jobs and had death threats related to use of the anti-malaria drug hydroxycloroquine  in conjunction with zinc and other medications.  Instead of the cheap anti-malaria drug,  MD  Fauci blesses a drug that costs $2K for a five day treatment.     Gov. Newsom  sends money to Santa Cruz County Health Officer to keep us in lockdown!  residents are waking up and voters will not vote for you.’

Another man:  ‘It’s Victory Day!  There’s 34 studies that the anti-malaria drug hydroxycloroquine    is effective and there’s no need for a vaccine.  The MD’s  who support the anti-malaria drug   were taken off Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.  That’s Big Pharmo influence.   The mainstream media has been taken over.’

A young  health professional:    ‘One in five colds are the  virus. You should  talk about taking enough vitamin D.  Persons with darker pigmentation have different vitamin D requirements.      You are beyond nuts!    I’m ashamed of your  attitude:    ‘Give me safety or give me death’ Do you want to live in a bubble?  My deaf aunt who reads lips may have to.  What you’re  doing,   I’m ashamed of all of you. ‘

So what’s  California’s Democrat Gov. Newsom  done about masks? Remember, CA is the 5th largest economy in the world.   And CA is run by Democrats who believe in  globalization.  Hence, it makes ‘Newsonian sense’ that Gov. Newsom bought masks from China from a company that makes electric cars.  What Newsom did not do is get permission from the legislature before he purchased heaps and heaps of face masks.

About masks in CA:   In mid-April,  CA Gov. Newsom bought one million KN95s facemasks  for $5.5 from a Chinese brand that was on the FDA authorized list but was removed the following month and never added back, according to state purchasing records.    The Wall Street Journal,  FDA’s Mask Standards Shift, Sowing Problems  says that California officials didn’t respond to inquiries about what the state has done about ‘the bad masks’.

_________

Aptos Psychologist:   Lots of people don’t trust what government officials put out as ‘must do’ requirements concerning management of Covid-19.

People are right that each individual/ family needs to figure out what makes sense.  Small children –who can’t read lips and need to see facial expressions — don’t do well  developing language and social abilities with parents wearing face masks all the time.

What say you?   Comments welcome!    DrCameronJackson@gmail.com
