Does Hydroxychloroquine Work for COVID19?
By Christian Wilde, Investigative Health Reporter
Like all of us, we have heard pros and cons as to whether or not this simple inexpensive medication can help treat COVID19? The ensuing messages have been at best mixed and confusing. As example, one recent study claimed hydroxychloroquine failed but in direct contrast a second study from Ford Medical Center in Michigan announced, hydroxychloroquine cut patient death rates in half! What are you and I to believe? Just yesterday President Trump said, "we have a cure for covid 19, hydroxychloroquine." Epidemiologist Harvey Risch from Yale Medical Center said he has seen remarkable success among covid patients and said on national TV that 75,000 to 100,000 lives could be saved if the FDA had not recently banned this highly tolerable drug. With billions being spent on developing new very expensive drugs in the pipeline did hydroxychloroquine pose a threat to the bottom line?
This presentation will be an attempt to bring some clarity to the discussion based on successful treatments already administered and documented by qualified physicians In the trenches. The information is offered for discussions with your health care providers who alone can advise you on your healthcare treatment. As you read this information of highly respected physicians from major universities ask yourself are they all lying?

Hydroxychloroquine, administered by itself (according to the information) may not be as successful for COVID19 patients as when it is combined with Zithromax (azithromycin) zinc or an exciting newly acknowledged player on the field, Doxycycline. A drug believed possibly even more effective than Zithromax in neutralizing the acknowledged heart rhythm risk, the one issue that has caused so many in the media to fervently announce, "This drug can kill you!" There is truth in that statement if the patient has a prolonged QT rhythm syndrome disorder of which M.D., Ph.D., Michael J. Ackerman, the Director of QT Syndrome and Sudden Death at Mayo Clinic has addressed in his safety guide for all physicians in the Proceedings of the Mayo Clinic.
A few weeks ago, the President along with national medical advisor Dr. Oz, spoke of a small hydroxychloroquine study in France that was showing remarkable success in treating COVID19 patients and called the early result, “game changing.” The study was soon expanded to include 1161 patients and presented to the French Premier Emmanuel Macron, documenting a 92% success rate! In the meantime, a 92 year old professor researcher hematologist at Wayne State University, Ananda Prasad and his wife both became positive with COVID19. Using a combination of hydroxychlor-oquine and the mineral zinc (a mineral the doctor had devoted his career to studying) was added to the formula and both senior patients became free of the virus! Apparently, zinc blocks the virus from entering the patient’s cells where it must enter to replicate itself. Dr. Prasad’s encouraging story appeared in the Detroit Times. Doctors all over are now using that inexpensive therapy to help save patient’s lives. Example: Dr. Anthony Cardillo said publicly, he has seen very promising results when prescribing hydroxychloroquine in combination with zinc for the most severely-ill COVID-19 patients. "Every patient I've prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free," Cardillo told Eyewitness News. "So clinically he said, I am seeing a good result.”
Hydroxychloroquine for Elderly COVID-19 Patients?
Dr. Mark Segal (Fox. medical expert) reports how his 96 year old father dying of the virus became disease free after treatment with Hydroxychloroquine and returned home.
Dr. Mohammud Alam, an infectious disease specialist affiliated with Plainview Hospital, said 81 percent of infected covid19 patients (he treated) at three Long Island nursing homes recovered from the contagion. The doctor explained he decided he could not apply the touted combination of hydroxychlor-oquine and antibiotic azithromycin to his high-risk heart patients. Instead, the doctor replaced Azithromycin with Doxycycline, another very old antibiotic that appears to not endanger the heart. Dr. Marc Segal, medical expert for Fox news reported his 96 year old father beat COVID19 with hydroxychlor-oquine.. So, does this treatment work? You and your doctors will have to decide.
NUMEROUS SCIENTIFIC PUBLISHED STUDIES AT MAJOR UNIVERSITIES OVER THE PAST 40 YEARS HAVE CONFIRMED THE SPICE'S ANTI-VIRAL and ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES AS WELL AS ITS ACKNOWLEDGED ABILITY TO BOOST ONE'S IMMUNE SYSTEM, VITAL TO FIGHTING ANY DISEASE INCLUDING WHAT THE WORLD IS DEALING WITH TODAY.
Curcumin has been found particularly helpful over the past 18 years against a number of earlier life- threatening Coronavirus infections which we have reported on Coast to Coast: Ebolla, Sars 1, Mers, H1/N1 and Human Papilloma, Rift Valley Fever Viruses as well as HIV- AIDS.
Numerous studies have shown that curcumin possesses a wide spectrum of biological and pharmacological properties; acting, for example, as anti- inflammatory, anti-cancer and anti-cholesterol, diabetes and anti-aging and without toxicity. Recently, curcumin’s antiviral and antibacterial activity was investigated, and it was shown to act against various important human pathogens like the influenza virus, hepatitis C virus, HIV and strain of Streptococcus, and Pseudomonas. Despite the established potency, curcumin has not yet been approved as a therapeutic antiviral agent. There are several reviews summarizing the current knowledge and future perspectives of the antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal effects of curcumin. While turmeric is not presented here as a cure for viruses, it has been acknowledged as being helpful and protective in avoiding viral disease.
