COVID-19 Update

[2:49] – The YouTube above is a clip from Joe Rogan’s nearly 3 hour interview with Dr. Peter McCullough, MD, MPH, who has had many of his videos and articles banned by the “tolerant” Left. McCullough is a board-certified cardiologist who has testified before committees of the US and Texas Senate regarding the treatment of COVID-19 and management of the ongoing pandemic. I’ve posted about him before.

The full video of his recent, nearly 3-hour interview with Joe Rogan is posted in full at I realize it’s realllly long, but I swear it is worth the time! His final words are, “There is no bigger, public health crisis than the impact of censorship on COVID-19.

Re: Things McCullough mentioned

His information about the Kirsch award is slightly inaccurate. The offer is, “If you can prove that the NIH and WHO got their treatment guidelines right, you could win $2M.” It went up May 24, 2021. NOBODY has taken him up on it!

January 23, 2022: “Defeat the Mandates” in DC: The protest march will begin at 11:30 am at the Washington Monument and walk together to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial (approximately 1 mile).

Representative Diana Harshbarger (TN-01) has introduced the “Natural Immunity is Real Act in the House of Representatives. This bill requires Federal agencies to take into account naturally acquired immunity from previous COVID-19 infection when issuing any rules or regulations aimed at protecting from COVID-19.

The link for the T-Detect home test for COVID T-cells is below.

He talks about the effectiveness of dilute Povidone Iodine rinses of the nose, sinuses, and throat in early stages of COVID to knock down the virus. It apparently hangs out in the facial area for several days, so killing it off there before it goes anywhere else is really effective. Povidone is also marketed as Betadine.

You can buy 10% Povidone Iodine OTC (Over The Counter) at any drug store. Amazon has it as well. Ten percent is for topical use on skin; it needs to be diluted to 1% for mouth gargling and nose/sinus spraying. To dilute, add 2 tablespoons of 10% Povidone Iodine to to 12 oz of water. Dr. McCullough recommends routine use of this mouthwash on a daily basis, and especially after contact with large indoor groups as a preventative for all viral infections, and as a must do early treatment for COVID.

I see that Amazon also has a pre-diluted Betadine nasal spray that is insanely expensive. You can get empty nasal spray bottles for $6.50 each, but personally, I’m going to go with my Neil Med SinuFlo system, which is $8.75 for the bottle with two salt packets. For one thing, I already have it. For another, Dr. McCullough said you need to get the iodine up into the sinuses, which takes a lot of oomph and snorting if you’re using a spray bottle.

The Neil Med bottle uses a combination of squirting under pressure and letting gravity fill the sinuses. (A neti pot just uses gravity.) I tip my head over the sink and squirt as much as will go up with one push into the upper nostril and hold my head there until I feel the liquid go into my sinuses on the other side. Then I face down into the sink to drain it out my nose, then do the other side. (Sorry if that’s gross.) There is always enough left after doing both nostrils and sinuses to gargle with. I’ve just been doing salt up until now, because it really helps my chronic allergic rhinitis. Some sites I googled recommend doing both salt and iodine, so it’ll probably be fine if I just use my regular salt mix with the iodine added.
