SARS Update: Virus Persistence and Route of Infection

In a 5/11 posting I described exposure to the SARS virus from a coughing passenger in front of me on an airline flight from Atlanta to San Antonio. My testing indicated the virus was all over the front of my shirt, my face, and eye glasses. Simply washing of the hands, face, and eye glasses with soap removed it. The shirt I saved in a sealed plastic container in my suitcase. A week later the virus was still virilent in my bag.

Using the 33566hz frequency, I disinfected the shirt before removing it from the sealed container, then threw it into the washing machine. This experiment indicates that the virus is persistent for long periods of time on clothing.

On a further note, the virus infected my upper respiratory tract and was initially located primarily there. I began to feel chest pain in my lower lungs before I eliminated it. The Scientist commented on this in an article yesterday. I was unable to check specifically on the blood while traveling to see if it worked its way down through the lungs or passed through the bloodstream into the lower lung.

SARS unanswered questions
New York meeting explores remaining mysteries and clues about the new virus

Scientists are still unsure how the virus gets deep into the lungs, where it causes alveolar damage that can be fatal. Most cold and flu viruses lodge in the upper respiratory tract, including the nose, sinuses, and throat. The SARS virus may lodge there and then work its way down, or it may diffuse into the bloodstream and reemerge in the lungs. If the latter is true, then blood levels of virus, or titer, could be very important in charting the course of the disease.

Drug Wars: Payback Time

Trial Lawyers Now Take Aim at Drug Makers
By Alex Berenson, New York Times, Sunday, 18 May 2003

Enriched and emboldened after successful fights against asbestos and tobacco companies, some of the nation's top plaintiffs' lawyers have trained their sights on drug makers, claiming that many giant pharmaceutical companies have hidden the dangers of medicines the lawyers say have harmed thousands of people.

In some cases the drugs at issue have already been pulled off the market, like Rezulin, a diabetes treatment from Pfizer that the Food and Drug Administration has linked to liver damage and is the target of almost 9,000 suits. Other suits name some of the industry's current best sellers, including Paxil, an antidepressant that plaintiffs contend is addictive — a claim denied by the drug's maker, GlaxoSmithKline.

In some instances, teams of plaintiffs' lawyers are spending several million dollars preparing cases for trial, in the hopes of winning billions of dollars in settlements and jury verdicts from the drug companies, which have some of the deepest pockets among American corporations.

SARS Update: Coronavirus Strikes Again on Airline Flight

Today I flew from Boston to San Antonio for a healthcare conference. I got lucky and was upgraded to first class. On the Atlanta to San Antonio leg, a guy in front of me had a cough. I noticed it but was not too worried about it because it was not a constant dry hacking cough. By the time I picked up my bag, I had chest pain that I recognized from a previous corona virus infection.

My FSCAN was in my luggage, so I got to the hotel as quickly as possible to do a DIRP scan to see if I could get a nice chart of the virus. My Cameron Aurameter was telling me it was definitely 33566 (coronavirus) and 255616 (metapneumovirus). By the time the shuttle was approaching downtown San Antonio, the chest pain was gone indicating I had some immunity to this virus from a previous infection.

On getting to the hotel room, a DIRP scan did not show good resonance. However my Cameron Auromater showed that treating at the frequencies above was effective and I had definite physical symptoms indicating the virus was present and treatment was working.

I had plenty of time to test for the bandwidth of the corona virus. For this infection it was 11HZ meaning treatment was necessary from 33555 to 33577. Treating an increments of 1 HZ caused all symptoms to disappear but the Aurameter indicated the virus was persistent.

Testing indicated the virus was on my face, my glasses, and the front of my shirt, just what you would expect from where I was sitting. I'm leaving my shirt out to see how long the virus will persist undisturbed on clothing.

The bandwidth of the metapneumovirus is 1HZ and that was knocked out by a few minutes of treatment with the FSCAN. The corona virus persisted (although all symptoms were gone) so repeated treatment is necessary. In this instance, Oscillicoccinum stopped replication of the remaining virus after treating for 10 minutes with the FSCAN. My immune system and further frequency treatment will be needed to deal with the remaining virus.

Oscillicoccinum tests positive for treating the corona virus in the early phases. You should not be without this homeopathic remedy which is available in any healthfood store. This in combination with Transfer Factor Plus to pump up your immune system may save your life. Many people have asked me how to get Transfer Factor and the best way is to call Dale Fawcett in Seattle at (360) 598-6585 and tell him I sent you. Everyone has access to these remedies, even if they do not have an FSCAN, and I believe they are sufficient to easily deal with a light SARS infection that you might pick up on an airplane, as long as you treat yourself at first signs of infection.

This experience confirms several things for me:

1. The corona virus can be transmitted through the air without the assistance of a parasite to carry it. Previous infections in multiple people were associated with a microscopic parasite.
2. The metapneumovirus has been with it in every case now, but is easily knocked out in a few minutes with the FSCAN. The coronavirus is the real culprit and treatment must be repeated for an extended period of time.
3. The corona virus has a rather wide bandwidth which is typical of a persistent infection which is difficult to treat and resistant to drugs. Oscillicoccinum combined with extended frequency treatment is the best way to treat this disease.
4. Be prepared. This disease is definitely coming to your neighborhood. It is already widely dispersed. The good news is that many people do not get seriously ill. The bad news is that they go undiagnosed and infect others.

Dr. Ames and Metabolic Tuneup

Bruce Ames was one of the leading researchers in carcinogenesis 23 years ago when I completed by Ph.D. thesis on carcinogenesis at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. So people take note when he says something, Recently, he has cofounded a company selling Juvenon, a combination of acetyl carnitine and lipoic acid. Those of us with some knowledge in the area listen to what Bruce says. I've tested Juvenon and my system needs it regularly.

An optimum intake of micronutrients and metabolites, which varies with age and genetic constitution, would tune up metabolism and give a marked increase in health, particularly for the poor and elderly, at little cost. 1) DNA damage. Inadequate intake of folic acid causes millions of uracils to be incorporated into the DNA of each cell with associated chromosome breaks, essentially producing a radiation mimic. Deficiencies of the metabolically connected vitamins B-6 and B-12, which are also widespread, also cause uracil incorporation and chromosome breaks. Inadequate iron intake (2 billion women in the world; 25% of U.S. menstruating women) causes oxidants to leak from mitochondria and damages mitochondria and mitochondrial DNA. Inadequate zinc intake (10% in the U.S.) causes oxidation and DNA damage in human cells. 2) The Km concept. Approximately 50 different human genetic diseases that are due to a poorer binding affinity (Km) of the mutant enzyme for its coenzyme can be remedied by feeding high-dose B vitamins, which raise levels of the corresponding coenzyme. Many polymorphisms also result in a lowered affinity of enzyme for coenzyme. 3) Mitochondrial oxidative decay with age. This decay, which is a major contributor to aging, can be ameliorated by feeding old rats the normal mitochondrial metabolites acetyl carnitine and lipoic acid at high levels. They restore the Km for acetyl carnitine transferase and the velocity of the reaction as well as mitochondrial function; reduce levels of oxidants, neuron RNA oxidation and mutagenic aldehydes; and increase old-rat ambulatory activity and cognition.

Pollen is high is zip code 02144

I have not detected any significant pollen lately in Somerville, MA, probably due to recent rains. This morning, on my daily run, I picked up what I believe to be a tree pollen with frequency 498573. This frequency will clear out any symptoms. Delisos Northeast Allergy Mix is also very helpful. By evening two new frequencies were prevalent - 497787 465822.
