New Corona Virus Reports by Townsend Letter
December 13, 2020 03:18PM
Just FYI - Worth noting... these CV reports . Townsend Newsletter has offered articles online.

A great start is this report by well-known Nutritional Medicine practitioner, Alan R. Gaby, MD.


COVID-19 and the Hydroxychloroquine Caper
Alan R. Gaby. MD.

Note this about side effects of HCQ…. (including irregular heartbeats)

HCQ can cause a number of side effects, the most serious of which include potentially life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias and rare cases of retinal toxicity. The risk of developing serious side effects appears to be related both to the dosage and to the duration of treatment. HCQ has a half-life of more than 40 days, which means that with prolonged daily use, the drug continues to build up in the body for many weeks before reaching a steady-state concentration. The short duration of treatment that is currently being recommended for COVID-19 (typically 5-10 days) results in a relatively low peak serum concentration and would therefore be expected to have a low incidence of side effects. Physicians who have been prescribing HCQ for COVID-19 (patients with contraindications are generally not offered the drug) have reported that serious side effects are essentially nonexistent.

PS to this report:

I also circulated this report to friends including some former afibbers. One, reported his daughter who formerly had severe Afib and a successful Natale ablation had contracted the virus. She was treated with HCQ which reduced her symptoms within hours and fortunately, she experienced no Afib as a result of the HCQ.

So... that's a relief to know and encouraging.

Thanks Jackie for this.

There was a doctor on Fox news that said his father had the virus and he had him take HCQ and got better quickly. However, a lot of politics has gone in about this drug, and instead of trying it they let people die.

Thanks for posting this Jackie. I was not familiar with Townsend Letter. Their article on the HCQ Caper was really interesting! I had no idea about the fraudulent (withdrawn) article in Lancet with the bogus data.
