What does ONE Health mean to veterinarians and how does it relate to our current situation?


This is great to see, but I think that it means much more.

The same methods that keep pets healthy also apply to people.

However, only a few doctors are talking about them so it's up to you to breath fresh air, stay engaged, happy and focus on keeping your cellular energy and immunity in tip top shape.

That's how we'll stop this pandemic and prevent any others.

Earlier in this thread, vitamin C was mentioned as a treatment that has been successful in Shanghai and China.

Now it's also being used in NY hospitals!

~1500mg 3-4x a day intravenously:

Hi everyone-

It was another day of exponential growth of COVID-19 cases here in the NYC area.

85% or more of the cases are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms.

However, up to 15% of the COVID patients are ending up in the hospital with respiratory problems.

That makes this a very important time to exercise your lungs by practicing deep breathing.

Especially if you live somewhere that you can get outside and appreciate nature at the same time.

The more we can do to protect ourselves, the better.

July Berrin just sent me this great video (which you can watch on Vimeo) from a critical care doctor on the front lines of COVID in NYC. Dr. Price is also a lung specialist:


I look forward to seeing you on tonight's (3/30/20) COVID and pet questions Empower Hour webinar.

Do pets get COVID 19?
Here is new information from the AVMA about Idexx testing:
OVID-19.



Despite two reports of dogs in Hong Kong testing positive for COVID-19, national and international health organizations continue to assure pet owners that dogs and cats cannot contract or transmit the disease. Now, global veterinary diagnostics firm Idexx Laboratories is confirming that statement.

Idexx announced earlier this week that the company has evaluated “thousands of canine and feline specimens during validation of a new veterinary test system for the COVID-19 virus” and “seen no positive results in pets to date of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus strain responsible for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) respiratory outbreak in humans,” according to a company press release.

The specimens used to develop the test were obtained from specimens submitted to Idexx Reference Laboratories for polymerase chain reaction testing. Click here for details about the Idexx SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) RealPCR Test.

These new test results support expert recommendations against testing pets for the COVID-19 virus. Pet owners whose dog or cat is demonstrating respiratory clinical signs are advised to contact their veterinarian to test for more common respiratory pathogens.

“Should leading health authorities determine it is clinically relevant to test pets for the COVID-19 virus, Idexx will be ready to make the Idexx SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) RealPCR Test available,” says Jay Mazelsky, president and CEO of Idexx Laboratories, in the release. “Pets are important members of our family, and we want to keep them healthy and safe. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 and pet health across our global IDEXX Reference Laboratories network as this situation evolves.”

Here's the summary of an Atlantic article about how the pandemic will end:

One could also envisage a future in which America learns a different lesson. A communal spirit, ironically born through social distancing, causes people to turn outward, to neighbors both foreign and domestic. The election of November 2020 becomes a repudiation of “America first” politics. The nation pivots, as it did after World War II, from isolationism to international cooperation. Buoyed by steady investments and an influx of the brightest minds, the health-care workforce surges. Gen C kids write school essays about growing up to be epidemiologists. Public health becomes the centerpiece of foreign policy. The U.S. leads a new global partnership focused on solving challenges like pandemics and climate change.
Here's the full article:

On tonight's (3/30/20) we'll discuss HA! for infection that give you things to do to reduce risk of infection beyond "A"voidance of the virus with hand washing and social isolating.

Remember, "ASC" what you can do for any health challenge.

We'll discuss the "S and C" parts tonight.

Thanks so much to everyone who attended, and had such great questions, during the recent (3/30/20) Empower Hour! webinar.

Regarding the "C" in the ASC method, we spoke about differentiating 2 of the 4 Awe-some As (Aconite and Ars) and here is a great cheat sheet from Ian Watson:


Also, while the CDC decides whether we should be wearing masks in public, here is a Q & A from the CDC director with some helpful info:

Good morning,

I’ve followed Dr. Peter Dobias for years, and thought I’d share this information because I found it interesting. I’ve often thought myself (though I’m no scientist) that there is something unique about this virus.

Kelly

PS: sorry for the length

Hi, my dog lovers,
While conducting some online research on SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19), I came across a video interview with Dr. Pekova, a Czech medical doctor, molecular biologist, and geneticist with an extensive research portfolio.

In an interview with TV channel T3, Dr. Pekova states that the genome sequence of SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19) is unlikely to be natural, and its characteristics suggest it was genetically engineered.

Dr. Pekova is the head of the research team at Tilia Laboratories , that has developed a more efficient, faster, and less expensive, test to detect SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19). The laboratory has offered the test methodology to labs around the world, for free.

As a bilingual Canadian Veterinarian of Czech origin, I have the benefit of being able to translate the Czech language interview into English and share it with you.

The interview helps dispel some claims that Dr. Pekova accused any government or a lab of deliberately spreading the virus. It does NOT suggest that COVID-19 is a conspiracy.

She only suggests that the SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19) sequence appears rather abnormal, and that such severe restructuring is unlikely to happen in nature, without human intervention.

We may never find out what led to the initial spread of SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19). Now, the most important thing is to help those who are critically ill, and support each other during this difficult time.

It is about time the research and development of genetically engineered viruses and other pathogens was banned. They can be dangerous and deadly if mishandled, or fall into the wrong hands.
———- ——————————————————————————

Dr. Pekova, how have you been helping people around the world during the coronavirus pandemic?

Dr. Pekova: When SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19) appeared in Wuhan, we understood that it would likely become widespread based on looking at the dynamics of the disease.

Research of viruses of animal origin is part of our expertise, and we prepared a diagnostic test for the virus detection.

When we detected the first two positive patients, we decided to change the test as it was too complicated, expensive, and it put high demand on the diagnostic equipment.

As soon as we had two positive patients, we were able to sequence the virus, and discovered that it can be detected with the help of the same technology that was proposed by the centre for disease control. Our test is capable of detecting the virus from a section of the sequence that is very unique and cannot be mistaken with another coronavirus. This allowed us to use just one reaction instead of three reactions to detect a positive sample.

When we need to test on a large scale, it has to be fast, simple, reliable and it should not excessively burden the lab.

We have published information about the methodology of the test and can provide it to any lab that makes a request, for free. We have had many labs around the world request the methodology because the previous test was too complex.

I am a physician and have acquired my PhD in molecular microbiology and genetic virology, and also have post graduate education in medical methods in genetics and microbiology, and this is what I have focused on in my research.

There has been a very strong effort backed by the most prominent universities and research centres in the Czech Republic that have the capacity to perform testing. The most important part is to create a system of testing and handling the samples. The labs use a non-infectious form of the virus for the diagnostic test.

The pathology of coronavirus leads to destruction of the lining of the airways, and it also creates an exaggerated immune reaction that can lead to lung fibrosis that can’t be reversed.

The SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19) can’t survive indefinitely, it is usually viable from 30 minutes to several hours, it does not like a dry environment and likes warm and humid environments such as tissue, and sweaty or moist hands.

Face masks will not protect us from nano particles such as viruses, however, they prevent contamination via water droplets for example when someone speaks or sneezes.

An infection is a matter of the viral “dose.” One virus is unlikely to cause an infection, but when someone sneezes out a few million of the particles, there is a big chance it will lead to an infection.

Here is the rest of the article:

Door handles, public transit, and shopping carts can be a source of infection. It is better to buy packaged goods and pay attention to hygiene and wash our hands properly. Gloves are not as important.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Does UV light destroy the virus?

Dr. Pekova: SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19) is a fragile RNA virus and UV light is a good idea.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

The laboratory in Wuhan conducts research of deadly virus such as SARS which is very closely related to SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19). You have said that SARS CoV-2 has certain genetic sequences that are not natural. Do you stand firm on your claim?

Dr. Pekova: Yes, I stand behind my claim. RNA viruses mutate and their genome is unstable. They have high rates of mutations, and they are not very accurate in replication.

The virus RNA usually mutates in areas that are responsible for protein production used as building blocks for “the body” of the virus. This part fulfils certain functions of the virus, such as cell penetration and interacting with the infected cell.

Then there is the regulatory area of the virus genome, it can be seen as the command centre that governs virus replication.

This part of SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19) genome appears unusually messy, as if it was severely altered.

I have a hard time believing that such intensive restructuring, insertions and deletions of the virus RNA code, would happen in nature and that the virus would survive such severe restructuring.

The regulatory portion of the virus genome usually has a low mutation rate. SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19) has an atypical degree of mutation, which is usually done by genetic modification.

When I worked in research, cloning viral mutation was my daily work, and we used to clone different gene variations on cultured media.

For example, we have seen a harmless gene turn into a lymphoma-inducing gene. A mutation can turn something that is benign into something very damaging. We have tools in genetic engineering that are capable of such modifications.

Genetic modification can be used, for example, to create so-called “designer babies” which was done by a Chinese scientist who created two embryos that were genetically modified. He was later fined and went to prison.

I can imagine there are other scientists who have done the same thing, they will just never admit to it. This all depends on the ethics of the scientist and I am not sure if ethics is a sufficient guarantee.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Do you think that there are even worse viruses in secret labs around the world?

Dr. Pekova: To be honest, I don’t even want to think about this.

Thanks for sharing Kelly.

Yes, there definitely is evidence that this is a man made virus.

At this time though the methods to prevent spread and give the US health care system a break is unfortunately to stay in our homes or just outside the door (or in our backyards breathing deeply).

This physical isolation will hopefully be over soon. ?

Here is something from my local area paper today. One of my previous coworkers (now retired) is his neighbor and if my memory serves me right, I believe he may be into alternative therapies. Drops on the tongue sounds like it could be.

Thanks Kelly-

I wonder if your ex-coworker may be able to ask Dr. McMichael if it is a homeopathic medicine (not a supplement)?

I'd love to be able to read more info about the TML supplement mentioned in the article.

Thanks again Kelly.

Regarding the known history of homeopathy during epidemics, here is a NY Times article about the 1918 flu pandemic.

It is interesting that NY Health commissioner at that time was a homeopathy:

As more is learned about COVID, new recommendations emerge.

CDC is almost ready to advise wearing some sort of face-covering (NOT a surgical mask as these are in such short supply) in public:
