The other day, I heard the happy voice of a radio host on DR4 tell me that the Omicron infection is rising and rising, while the Delta variant has slowly begun to decline.
Then great concern about the rising infection makes the radio host say: “And what can we do then? -Yes, we can be vaccinated, for example. ”
I listened intently to hear if there were other examples since he said “for example”.
But there was no more.
It’s horrible to hear that we are only relying on vaccines, now that we have persistent messages that the current vaccine does not work very well on the Omicron variant, and that its effect even on the Delta variant is gone after 7 months .
Strangely enough, the vaccine’s short shelf life does not make the authorities seek other, more effective solutions, but on the contrary is used as an argument for more frequent booster vaccinations. It is as if you can not think in other directions at all, even if you are face to face with the vaccine’s limitations: it does not prevent you from becoming infected, it does not prevent you from passing on the infection, and it only lasts 7 months.
It is actually quite impressive that everyone, from the Danish Prime Minister to various experts, has been talking about vaccines alone for almost two years. Right from March 2020, the Prime Minister spoke about vaccines, as if she could already predict that such a vaccine would be developed in an unprecedented record time. -Well spotted.
As we are flooded with research results on both the prevention and treatment of covid-19, then this uncensored newsletter must of course pass on these results when the other media are not allowed to.
As early as May 6, 2020, the Vitality Council’s newsletter reviewed the first results of prevention with vitamin D. This has been described and documented numerous times since, also with good review articles, and in February 2021, 200 researchers and doctors wrote an open letter to all governments and health authorities appealing to be aware that vitamin D deficiency increases the risk of severe Covid-19 disease. In this letter, the researchers explain in detail the dosage needed to achieve the desired value in the blood, and as a curiosity, they also mention how much they themselves take. It is always a good sign when a doctor dares to take his own cure.
The vast majority of doctors take 100 µg (4000 IU) daily and aim for a recommended serum concentration of at least 75 nmol/L (30 ng/ml). This is far below the level in most Danes.
Another important piece of information in their letter is that a calculation error of factor 10 were made when calculating the RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) in the United States. This value of 1/10 of the ideal, was unfortunately adopted by other countries, and became ADT (Recommended Daily Supply) here in Denmark; – what is now called RI (Reference Intake). Regarding vitamin D, the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration still recommend RI to be 5 µg (200 IU) daily. In 2020, the National Board of Health has increased this recommendation to 10 µg daily, which is approx. 10% of what we really need.
What do we do then? First and foremost, we get our vitamin D content measured in the blood. If it is below 75 nmol/L, then we take vitamin D in double dose, which for a normal-weight, adult person is 200 µg daily, until the vitamin D level has exceeded 75 nmol/L, after which you continue with 100 µg daily.
If you are overweight, you need significantly more, because vitamin D will be stored in the fat layer, where it does not do much good.
When it is above the desired 75 nmol/L, there is a significantly lower risk of serious, hospital-requiring covid-19 disease.
Dear reader. You may be tired of us constantly returning to vitamin D. But when you are not allowed to get this information from the authorities who are suppose to take care of you, then do not think that the information does not exist.
In the same way, there is a lot of good research on vitamins A, -C and -K2 as well as the minerals Magnesium, Selenium and Zinc, all of which contribute to a well-functioning immune system and prevent severe Covid-19 disease.
But maybe it’s all just a storm in a teacup.
Indeed, much information suggests that the highly contagious Omicron-B.1.1.529 variant is no more dangerous than a mild flu.
Due to its high contagion, Omicron will just as quietly take over the epidemic, and then we’re back to a fairly ordinary winter season with a mild flu.
After this, society can open up and start functioning normally again.
A mild flu, we know how to prevent – and treat.
Have a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.
Take care of yourself and others.
