Anything that Works......I believe there are many things that do. (Not just D3 or Ivermectin) Remdesivir is an antiviral. After a very short time there is NO living virus in the body. The second stage of the disease is an immune response. Hospital's are nothing more than death houses. Its just a set up to take your life, or at least your freedom. Let's go Government!

Dying COVID-19 Patient Recovers After Court Orders Hospital to Administer Ivermectin

An elderly COVID-19 patient has recovered after a court order allowed him to be treated with ivermectin, despite objections from the hospital in which he was staying, according to the family’s attorney.

After an Illinois hospital insisted on administering expensive remdesivir to the patient and the treatment failed, his life was saved after a court ordered that an outside medical doctor be allowed to use the inexpensive ivermectin to treat him, over the hospital’s strenuous objections.

Ivermectin tablets have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat humans with intestinal strongyloidiasis and onchocerciasis, two conditions caused by parasitic worms. Some topical forms of ivermectin have been approved to treat external parasites such as head lice and for skin conditions such as rosacea. The drug is also approved for use on animals.

Remdesivir has been given emergency use authorization by the FDA for treating certain categories of human patients that have been hospitalized with COVID-19. But the use of ivermectin to treat humans suffering from COVID-19 has become controversial because the FDA hasn’t approved its so-called off-label use to treat the disease, which is caused by the CCP virus also known as SARS-CoV-2.

Critics have long accused the FDA of dragging its heels and being dangerously over-cautious and indifferent to human suffering in its approach to regulating pharmaceuticals, a criticism that led to then-President Donald Trump signing the Right to Try Act in May 2018. The law, according to the FDA, “is another way for patients who have been diagnosed with life-threatening diseases or conditions who have tried all approved treatment options and who are unable to participate in a clinical trial to access certain unapproved treatments.”

Medical doctors are free to prescribe ivermectin to treat COVID-19, even though the FDA claims that its off-label use could be harmful in some circumstances. Clinical human trials of the drug for use against COVID-19 are currently in progress, according to the agency.

The drug “most definitely” saved the elderly patient’s life “because his condition changed right immediately after he took ivermectin,” attorney for the family, Kirstin M. Erickson of Chicago-based Mauck and Baker, told The Epoch Times.

Sun Ng, 71, who was visiting the United States from Hong Kong to celebrate his granddaughter’s first birthday, became ill with COVID-19 and within days was close to death. He was hospitalized on Oct. 14 at Edward Hospital, in Naperville, Illinois, a part of the Edward-Elmhurst Health system. His condition worsened dramatically and he was intubated and placed on a ventilator a few days later.

Ng’s only child, Man Kwan Ng, who holds a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering, did her own research and decided that her father should take ivermectin, which some medical doctors believe is effective against COVID-19, despite the FDA’s guidance to the contrary.

But against the daughter’s wishes, the hospital refused to administer ivermectin and denied access to a physician willing to administer it.

The daughter went to court on her father’s behalf and on Nov. 1, Judge Paul M. Fullerton of the Circuit Court of DuPage County granted a temporary restraining order requiring the hospital to allow ivermectin to be given to the patient. The hospital refused to comply with the court order.

At a subsequent court hearing on Nov. 5, Fullerton said one physician who testified described Sun Ng as “basically on his death bed,” with a mere 10 to 15 percent chance of survival. Ivermectin can have minor side effects such as dizziness, itchy skin, and diarrhea at the dosage suggested for Ng, but the “risks of these side effects are so minimal that Mr. Ng’s current situation outweighs that risk by one-hundredfold,” Fullerton said.

The judge issued a preliminary injunction that day directing the hospital to “immediately allow … temporary emergency privileges” to Ng’s physician, Dr. Alan Bain, “solely to administer Ivermectin to this patient.”

The hospital resisted the order on Nov. 6 and 7, denying Bain access to his patient. The hospital claimed that it couldn’t let Bain in because he wasn’t vaccinated against COVID-19 and that its chief medical officer wasn’t available to “proctor” Bain administering ivermectin.

The daughter’s attorneys filed an emergency report with the court on Nov. 8 and Fullerton heard from both sides. The judge admonished the hospital and restated that it must allow Bain inside over a period of 15 days to do his job. When the hospital filed a motion to stay the order, Fullerton denied it, again directing the facility to comply.

The ivermectin appears to have worked, and Sun Ng has recovered from COVID-19. He was discharged by the hospital on Nov. 27.

“My father’s recovery is amazing,” his daughter, Man Kwan Ng, said in a statement.

“My father is a tough man. He was working so hard to survive, and of course, with God’s holding hands. He weaned off oxygen about three days after moving out of the ICU. He started oral feeding before hospital discharge. He returned home without carrying a bottle of oxygen and a feeding tube installed to his stomach. He can now stand with a walker at the bedside and practice stepping. After being sedated for a month on a ventilator in ICU, his performance is beyond our expectations. Praise the Lord.”

Attorney Erickson said the “happy” end result here provides “hope for the nation.”

“We get calls from all over the place,” she told The Epoch Times. “People that want to sue hospitals after someone’s passed, they wanted to get the medicine and couldn’t. Obviously, that’s a different, difficult case because a medical malpractice case is very difficult.”

People just want to do what’s best for their family members and “find ivermectin themselves” and have it on hand “and use it when someone starts to develop symptoms,” Erickson said.

She said her legal team and client were “really thankful” that Ng recovered and “we salute” Judge Fullerton, Dr. Bain, and others, as well as the hospital for abiding by the court order in the end.

For more information on ivermectin and how to obtain it, Erickson said people should visit the website of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance at Covid19CriticalCare.com.

Keith Hartenberger, system director for public relations for Edward-Elmhurst Health, declined to comment.

“We’re not able to comment due to patient privacy guidelines,” he told The Epoch Times by email.

I found dried, pitted prunes available in bulk at Sprouts yesterday. $4.99 the pound. I bring a pan of them to a boil, turn it off and let them steep until cooled, then refrigerate. I ate a dozen this morning and have no idea if this constitutes "enough'', too much, way too little. I'd like this remedy to be the solution since I really don't want to rely on laxatives forever.

Relying on laxatives inflames the gut. The more you take the tighter you get; with the momentary purges induced by the laxative. Its like any other chemical cycle.

With regard to your 20 oz comment; half the dose. do it twice a day. I'm not sure why one must be so literal in interpretation.

There are some good yogic exercises that massage and ruminate the gut and encourage the intestines to work properly. One involves simply grinding the lower stomach in a circular then anti circular manner. It’s like 20 grinds clockwize and 20 anticlockwise. Do that for a few cycles with the clockwize set finishing the cycle. Another one, which is likely out of your league now, is to lie on your back and put you feet over your body and then bend your knees until they touch the floor. Seems to stimulate all the right nerves. It is a Kundalini yoga exercise, but should be featured in most comprehensive Hath yoga books and sites as well.

Your best bet is likely the psyllium. It does not take as much effort as the prunes, will not irritate your gut like a large quantity of sugary fruits will. It takes 12 to 24 hours to begin to work its way into your lower bowel.

Prunes, or other fruits are a good maintenance routine. I use apples and papaya, dried fruit. Also eat raw celery, carrots regularly, and take about 1/4 cup of virgin olive oil each day as well. Your lower gut biome needs plenty of good fiber each day. The more different kinds you ingest the better. Each food is preferred by different gut critters. If they are not happy they simply shut down the store. North Americans have maybe 25 percent of the standard intestinal bacteria needed for a healthy life.

One last comment; be careful of the caffeine alternative Some caffeine is helpful for many people. But when you have chronic constipation it can become excessive and just get you wired without gettin you emptied.

A sit-up routine will do wonders for your regularity. If you find it's too much on your back, you can buy a sit-up 'machine' that allows you to support your back and neck without removing the essential ab muscle work-out from your routine. Many people don't work their abs as they have neck problems. A sit up machine, which is essentially a roller, allows you to work the abs without pulling your neck out of place. An alternative is bent knee sit ups where one only stresses the abdominals and does not put the stress on the neck.

The main problem is that no one is concerned with maintaining regularity until it does not occur. Then it's a bit late. We tend to overreact to a natural cycle using the right techniques in an excessive manner and it does little to help the underlying problem. Once the cycle is disrupted the swings begin to increase and we are caught in a series of excesses.

Yes If you use a high enough dose.

If you do not it is like pouring a cup of coffee in the ocean.

Do you have any idea of what her D3 level is?

Do you have any idea of what her PTH level is?

Get Back to me.

Why it is not a good idea to move alzheimer's patients to summer and winter homes.

We had this problem with my mother. We stopped taking her to her summer house when we realized

she was not familiar with it and it caused more confusion.

Should you move a dementia patient to a new home?"


The best time to move a person with dementia is when they are stable. An illness or hospital stay may make it difficult for a person with dementia to cope with a move and adjust to new surroundings. However, in many cases, moving only becomes necessary after a person has suffered a serious illness or injury.
