Suffering For Telling The Truth

BY Herschel Smith
1 month, 4 weeks ago

Seen at Ken’s place.

A doctor from Texas who spread COVID-19 misinformation on her personal Twitter account has had her privileges suspended.

Dr. Mary Bowden of the Houston Methodist Hospital posted a series of tweets praising the antiparasitic drug ivermectin as a COVID-19 treatment. She also called vaccine mandates “wrong.”

Ivermectin is a drug typically used to treat parasitic infections in livestock such as horses. Health agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration have repeatedly warned that the drug can cause adverse side effects in humans, such as dizziness and nausea. In some cases, it can lead to overdose and death, as well as to hallucinations and seizures.

Ivermectin can be used by humans but only through a prescription ordered by a doctor, usually to get rid of parasitic worms, the FDA said. Sometimes, ivermectin can be used to treat lice and skin conditions such as rosacea. But no health agency recommends that people infected with the coronavirus take ivermectin.

Steven Mitby, Bowden’s attorney, told CNN that the doctor wasn’t against vaccines, but believed that “people should have a choice.” Bowden is vaccinated, Mitby said, as Houston Methodist mandates that all doctors be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

In a statement posted to Twitter, the Houston Methodist Hospital said Bowden used her account to “express her personal and political opinions about the COVID-19 vaccine and treatments.”

I can’t and won’t give medical advice.  The upshot of that is that I have no license to lose.  So here we go.

Ivermectin is effective against Covid and one of the most easily tolerated substances known.  Some people take it prophylactically.

I laughed when I read that crap about horses again.

People should have a choice.

Mandates are immoral.

Dealing with her this way was immoral.

Way to stay classy, Houston Methodist Hospital.  A Twitter post.  You deal with a firing of a respected health care provider by issuing a Twitter post, a child’s forum of ten second sound bites for those with no attention span and little intelligence.

And finally, my respect to the doctor.  Stay strong.  Don’t give in to the mob.

    Houston Methodist is the hospital that fired over 150 nurses back in June for refusing the jab. They got a Reagan appointee, Feral District Court Judge Lynn Hughes, to sign off on it.

    I got a script for ivermectin which I had sent to a W/M pharmacy in PA/WA. They tell me that they can’t fill it for use as a Chinese flu prophylactic.

    I just love being treated like I’m a fucking 5 year old.

    My gal has bad chronic back pain and has used oxycodone for pain management. Every year there’s some kind of WA state review of the script so she was not able to get it filled for another week. Believe me, she is in pain. Walks the halls at night.

    But that’s not my point. I am not much for any government run ANYTHING but there should be a facility that provides any GD drug anyone wants for pretty much its’ cost. Anytime.

    Walk in, get your meth, get your oxycodone, get your reefer, whatthefuckever. I don’t care. You say, ohmy, it’ll decimate millions. Oh well. I don’t give a shit.

    You say look at what’s happening with unfettered access to Twinkees. Type 2 diabetes is sky high. The only reason is because BILLIONS are spent in medical care for these idiots. If someone wants to commit suicide by eating, FUCKING LET THEM but don’t put me on the hook for their care as they slowly slide out of it.

    If someone wants a handful of oxycodone every day, fine. It won’t be long for them but denying someone this drug to help them get through the night is fucking bullshit.

    Tell you what, you fucking do you and let me do me.

    Order it as paste. Dosage can be found via Ann Barnhardt. Forget the Pharma businesses. They’re in business for money, not your health.

    Order it over Amazon, or Tractor Supply.

    Sorry to hear about you gal. The only thing I can say is I believe in Chiropractic adjustments. Do it as you can afford it.

    Expensive, and repeated. Sorry to say.

    I’ve got a half dozen boxes of the paste-I wanted the ivermectin pills as a backup.

    My gal has been in the medical field all her life and is well versed in various therapies but unfortunately this drug works well for her. She has had several surgeries and believe me, IMO, someone cutting on my back is ABSOLUTELY a last resort.

    I would be interested in a doctor like this woman. If she were to open a wellness clinic, I’d be all over it.

    Ivermectin eased the suffering of the populations of roughly 2/3 of Africa and most of India during this “pandemic”.

    William C. Campbell won the Nobel Prize for medicine in 2015 per Ivermectin. Campbell delivered his Nobel Lecture on 7 December 2015 at Aula Medica, Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm.

    https://www.nobelprize.org/uploads/2018/06/campbell-lecture.pdf

    Repurposed therapies can be generically manufactured at very low per-course costs: ranging from $2.58 for IV dexamethasone (or $0.19 orally) to $0.12 for ivermectin.

    Not-vax clot shot: The CEO of Pfizer has suggested potential future prices of as much as $175 per dose ―148 times more than the potential cost of production. It is difficult to get a solid accurate figure on the cost of the clot shot in its variants.

    BUT “professional” injection and verification of the Not-Vax certainly adds to the raw price of the actual product.

    A month ago my wife spent over $500 grey market dollars to get enough Ivermectin for treatment and/or prophelaxis for our family. Last week she had to drive 300 miles each way to provide it for her vaxxed-yet-infected sister, who started getting better within a day.

    If it weren’t for the goverment, doctors, and insurance how would we manage?

    May Fauci die a lingering, horrible death – just as all the ungodly have died, for his massive disinformation campaign against a valid, efficacious, and inexpensive drug.

    I took Ann Barnhart‘s advice, and I got the injectable ivermectin, and I make myself an “adult beverage” cocktail every four months, with the proper amount of ivermectin in it. The first time I took it, I had a massive awareness that something in my body was dying -and it was in my sinuses. This is antifungal and anti-viral, after all. Ever since then, a mild reaction, but I’ve never gotten sick in over 2 years, what with getting colds every single fall and winter on average, in years past… Neither my wife, nor myself have been sick from the plandemic, and I’ve been around everyone (all Covidiots) who is/are in the category of being a “spreader.” For me, this stuff works.

    To hell with Fauci, Biden and the bullshit NIH and the CDC! May God judge them speedily.

    I’ve been taking the paste once a month for 4 months now along with daily vit c, zinc, vit d, curcumin, and quercetin. So far no rona. I’ve been exposed to “super spreader” events several times as well as a few people who got the rona. I’m a 50 something mostly healthy with no major health issues.

    I fear the vaccine more than the rona.

    On hospitals firing staff who refuse the jab – hospitals and anyplace who get paid by Medicare and Medicaid fall under their rules, that everyone get jabbed OR have a medical or religious exemption. The workplace, in this case Houston memorial made the decision, on their own, to not accept religious exemptions. A local place that is already down 30% on their beds due to nursing shortages, they just can’t hire any, is now facing a dec 8 deadline to have all staff fully jabbed or they have to fire them. The administration is reminding staff of this looming deadline AND reminding the staff that they can file medical or religious exemptions. So far, the resisters are not doing the religious exemptions en masse and I have to wonder why. Is it negative publicity, the enemedia pushing the no exemptions narrative, something else? I know the owners and they are accepting every religious exemption submitted, but people still delay. So, all these firings are due to decisions made by these businesses, both beholden to government insurance and those not, like every scumbag company who is firing people for,not,complying with the not a mandate.

    Why is this posted at NIH, including ivermectin: FDA and CDC are, of course, lying.
    Table 2e. Characteristics of Antiviral Agents That Are Approved or Under Evaluation for the Treatment of COVID-19

    I’m no expert, this is not medical advice, and ymmv. Someone else may want to weigh in on this.

    For the paste, I’ve been informed to double the body weight listed for horses. For instance, instead of 200#, use 400#.

    I used ivermectin with the rest of the Zelenko protocol when I had Covid. No problem.
