The AMA wants to end the use of ivermectin in the treatment of Covid, saying calls to poison control centers report a fivefold increase in cases related to ivermectin. This despite that doctor we saw months ago testifying before Congress about the efficacy of the drug in treating live, infected patients with Covid.
There’s a problem with AMA cred that’s illustrated by the way the AMA handled hydroxychloroquine (HCQ). Probably everybody’s seen the short video of the Nigerian-born female doctor in Houston coming out loudly in favor of HCQ. She had treated 351 patients for Covid, many with serious comorbidities such as diabetes and extreme age, and none had died. I asked a Nigerian friend in Lagos about the progress of Covid in his country. He said he seldom hears anything about it because HCQ is readily available and has long been used to treat other diseases.
Too, I have long suspected that the AMA is in the pockets of Big Pharma and crooked politicians and will say what the crooks want said. We’re not privy and therefore can’t trust the buggers. Nor am I alone in suspecting that for them, our health takes a backseat to making money. Along with tools like Fauci and Dr Scarf, they have thoroughly and totally ruined the medical establishment’s reputation.
After I battled Covid in January, one doctor was good enough to write me prescriptions that I then used to order both HCQ and ivermectin from Canada. Another doctor in the same hospital said neither of those treatments was any good, but by then I was already convinced. I simply don’t believe the naysayers, and the AMA piling on now simply reassures me that I’m on the side of the angels.
