My adult son and I tested positive for Covid-19 at the same time. For about a week we felt relatively fine, but suddenly absolute exhaustion set in. His oxygen levels were quite low, so he decided to go to the hospital. I stayed home to recover under the care of my daughter. A few days after he had arrived at the hospital, he requested to be treated with the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) Math+ Hospital Treatment Protocol
The doctors refused. His sister wrote a letter also requesting Math+, along with all of the literature. She offered to sign a liability waver. They again refused.
For the first few days my son was alert and talking. They did not allow my daughter into the room to speak with him; short cell-phone contact only. This made it impossible to discuss what the doctors were planning. Later, when he was in a coma and on the ventilator, we were allowed into his room every day.
Without informed consent, they immediately placed my son on “the usual hospital COVID protocol”, as directed by Dr. Bonnie Henry. Right away the doctors put him on nineteen medications (19), many of which have side effects of trouble breathing, anxiety, confusion, mental depression, etc. In this “cocktail” they included Dexamethasone and Baricitinib. (The FDA has not approved Baricitinib for Covid; it is designated “for emergency use only”.) In addition, some of the drugs they gave him were opioids—but they also gave him drugs for which opioids are contraindicated. (Note: There is no valid study about this combination of drugs. No one can say what such a combination of 19 drugs does to a body.)
Dr. Bonnie Henry’s standard hospital protocol, the Status of Recommendations, is based on BC’s Centre for Disease Control (CDC) treatment recommendations http://www.bccdc.ca/health-professionals/clinicalresources/covid-19-care/treatments.
It includes Remdesivir (a drug proven to cause kidney failure), but prohibits Ivermectin, one of the safest drugs known, and warns against “unproven or ineffective therapies” such as Dexamethasone as well as vitamins D, C, and Aspirin. It does not warn against an unproven combination of drugs such as the nineteen medications given my son immediately upon arrival at the hospital. The Status states that doctors must abide by the “public health system”, and includes the following: “The Ivermectin/Math+ Protocol has been developed by experienced physicians treating hospitalized Covid-19 patients; at this time, it has not been adopted as a medical consensus.”
I phoned a doctor who had previously prescribed Ivermectin. She said she would get her hands chopped off if she did that now. The BC College of Physicians and Surgeons had instructed pharmacies that they are no longer allowed to fill prescriptions of Ivermectin. The doctors transferred my son to the ICU. Six days after arrival at the hospital, after they had administered “the cocktail”, which included Dexamethasone and Baricinitib, they intubated him (a mechanical ventilator down his throat). Their own report states that he was still requesting Math+, but again the doctors proceeded with Dr. Bonnie Henry’s approved hospital protocol—again without his informed consent. Midazolam was later added, a commonly used drug in palliative care.
They put him into a medically-induced coma with three heavy IV (intravenous) drugs: Fentanyl, Ketamine, Rocuronium. The doctors continued with the unproved “cocktail”, as well as many other drugs; they included minimal doses of a few vitamins.
I wrote a letter to a director of the hospital and to all six of the rotating treating doctors. In my letter I begged them: 2 “To you, who is familiar with the face of death in hospitals, my son’s death would be just another COVID-19 statistic. To me, the mother, it will be the death of my only son…I request that you IMMEDIATELY implement the Math+ Protocol to aid in his recovery…I ask you, if your son’s or daughter’s condition was deteriorating after 12 days of your “approved hospital protocol treatment for Covid-19”, would you not at least TRY the harmless and evidence-based Math+ Protocol?” I pleaded with them to not let my son die. I enclosed a liability waiver—all to no avail.
In response to my letter, the Director of Clinical Operations phoned and once again quoted Dr. Bonnie Henry’s iron-clad hospital protocol. We wrote to the doctors a total of six times. I reminded them of their Hippocratic Oath, “First do no harm”—that by refusing to use evidence-based, life-saving treatments they are doing harm. Our pleas fell on deaf ears. In a last-ditch effort we requested my son be treated with high dose vitamin C, as recommended by the Math+ protocol: “If in ICU and not improving: Consider Mega-Doses [of vitamin C]: 25 grams [25,000 milligrams] IV twice daily for 3 days”.
The doctors even refused to try the safe, effective, and harmless vitamin C. The six rotating doctors kept us in the dark; they refused to speak to us. In fact, they avoided us. The nurses gave us bits of incidental information to keep us placated. On the last day, a doctor admitted that he was “kind of a soldier on the ground…I have absolutely no power…”. When they told his sister that her brother would likely have to go on a ventilator, she again wrote a letter requesting the Math+ hospital treatment protocol, together with the relevant literature; the doctor crossed his arms and refused to take the letter. She then handed it to the nurse and asked it be put into the file.
My son was kept on a mechanical ventilator and in a medically induced coma for 21 days. The doctors had also been giving him blood pressure medication that apparently had kept his heart beating. We were asked to agree to stop this heart medication so that he could finally die. The hospital report states that my son had no comorbid conditions. His family doctor once remarked that he had above normal health.
The doctor’s report states that he died of Covid-19 pneumonia and complications of multiple organ failure. His entire body was swollen. A nurse commented, “Everyone in here gets puffy”. I held my son’s hand as he lay dying—a bloated piece of yellow rubber. My daughter and I had visited a seemingly dead body on a daily basis. It was heartbreaking.
#2. As for myself, after testing positive, I felt fine for about a week, then suddenly became so exhausted that I could not even lift my arm. My daughter drove up from out of town. She immediately phoned the Canadian Covid Care Alliance https://www.canadiancovidcarealliance.org/treatment-protocols/who also uses Math+.
My daughter phoned Canadian Covid TeleHealth; they provide medical advice across Canada http://www.covidtelehealth.ca. They referred me to Dr. Ira Bernstein. He consulted with me by phone, then faxed a prescription to a local pharmacy: Nitazoxanide, Prednisone, and Azithromycin. After two weeks, with use of these medications, a few days of minimal supplemental oxygen, and liberal use of vitamin C—and under my daughter’s care—I was fully recovered. I am 80 years old and pre-diabetic. The doctor who saved my life is now in danger of losing his license. He is therefore no longer treating patients suffering from Covid-19. What a loss.
My son was a photojournalist; children and animals loved him. For my daughter and I there will be no more birthdays and Christmases. Without my son, my golden years are golden no more.
3. I have written this story in the hope that the information presented will save lives. (Names withheld.)
***** One must ask: Why are our governments and health authorities not providing its citizens with information regarding prevention and effective early treatment?
Why are the FLCCC’s safe, treatments forbidden? Why are Baricinitib and Remdesivir still being used? American Front Line Nurses are vehemently against these. Early treatment would save lives. It would also prevent the strain on hospitals, doctors, and nurses; it would stop ruining our economy, businesses, and families. If we were all provided with information about prevention and care before Covid gets out of hand (turning blue and shortness of breath), we could live with this virus like we live with the flu.
Early treatment is—and has always been—the solution. In some countries the government distributes home care kits to its citizens. My son’s story is the story of thousands of people across the country. It is not an isolated incident. To date (February 27, 2022) there have been 2,851 Covid deaths in BC. Our governments are suppressing life-saving treatments. Hospital directors, doctors, and nurses are “just following orders”: Dr. Bonnie Henry’s protocol, as dictated by the BC CDC.
At a U.S. senate hearing (January 24, 2022), top level doctors and medical experts agreed: Hospitals are no longer safe https://rumble.com/vta828-highlight-reel-sen.-ron-johnsons-covid19-a-second-opinion.html.
