Blaylock, M.D.Blaylock Wellness ReportLiving a Long, Healthy LifeJune 2020Vol. 17, No. 6Key Points• The media has declared war on dissenting opinions, even from credible sources• There is evidence that long-term face mask wearing poses health risks• Isolated people face increased risk of death from a number of causes• People who die from viral illnesses are most often killed by an intense immune reaction• Plant extracts can stop cytokine storms ?
In last month’s issue of The Blaylock Wellness Report, I pointed out that 95 percent of the people who have contractd the SARS-CoV-2 virus (commonly called the COVID-19 virus) either had no symptoms or suffered only a moderate or mild degree of illness, then quickly recovered. And of the 5 percent who suffered a more serious illness, the vast majority survived and made a full recovery. Not even extreme age worsened the prognosis significantly if the person was in good health prior to infection. In fact, we have seen a 101-year-old, a 102-year-old and a 106-year-old survive this virus and make a full recovery.A re-evaluation of Northern Italy has demonstrated that the vast majority of those who died were 80 or older and were suffering from at least one to as many as three major illnesses. There remains a real but unsettled question about what role COVID-19 played in the majority of those deaths. In Northern Italy, the death rate among the healthy elderly was around 0.8 percent. Had we known just how many people were actually infected, the death rate would have been far lower than it is — and no higher than the seasonal flu.Unfortunately, there is a great deal of lying and political posturing has taken place during this pandemic. For instance, we are now learning that a significant number of those counted as fatalities from COVID-19 were never tested for the virus itself. All that was necessary for a diagnosis of COVID-19 was to have one of three symptoms — a cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing. But people with heart failure (as well as a great number of other noninfectious conditions) also tend to cough and have difficulty breathing. And it has been known for a long time that a frail patient who requires a respirator is very likely to die. Unfortunately, we see that kind of thing happen all the time.What this means is that people dying because of pre-existing medical conditions (such as heart failure or COPD) were being counted as COVID-19 deaths — thus giving a falsely inflated number that made the death rate from the virus look much worse than it was. In addition,
most people who contracted the virus and suffered lung problems would not have died had they been otherwise healthy.As noted, the vast majority of those who have died from COVID-19 were elderly people already suffering from one or more serious medical conditions. We also know that as people age, their bodies become progressively more inflamed while their immune systems — especially their cellular immunity, the first line of defense against invading microorganisms — begins to falter.In addition, obesity significantly raises a person’s risk of serious complications or even death when he or she becomes infected. Numerous studies have shown that obese people suffer more inflammation that thin people or those of normal weight. And obesity is epidemic in our society.In this month’s issue of The Blaylock Wellness Report, I will correct some of the misinformation being spread about this particular virus, and tell you what you can do to lower your risk of falling victim to COVID-19 or other viral illnesses.Mainstream Media vs. Real MedicineThe media has declared war on all dissenting opinions, even those coming from highly credible sources. They have announced — as if they have carefully examined all the medical literature — that no alternative therapy has anything to offer patients. They also insist that we must listen to no one but the “experts” at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), which are both, in my opinion, corrupt medical bureaucracies.In fact, the medical literature is filled with highly credible studies that show the enormous benefits of certain alternative treatments. Scientific evidence shows that the immune systems of numerous people in the at-risk population can be effectively stimulated, thereby lowering their risk of serious illness and death.Likewise, evidence demonstrates the incredible efficacy of common plant extracts for ending the cytokine storm — which is the cause of death in most COVID-19 cases. These therapies include: • High-dose vitamin C• Nano-curcumin• Nano-quercetin• Baicalin• EGCG (green tea)I would certainly use these therapies if I or a member of my family were infected.The FBI recently raided a clinic giving high-dose intravenous vitamin C for nonhospitalized cases of viral infection. But numerous studies have shown that treatment to be perfectly safe, while other studies have demonstrated its effectiveness.Before I tried these natural treatments for various Please note: All information presented in The Blaylock Wellness Report (including answers to reader questions) is for informational purposes only, and is not specifically applicable to any individual’s medical problem(s), concerns, and/or needs.

June 2020The Blaylock Wellness Report Page 3NewsmaxHealth.comconditions, including viral infections, I was also somewhat skeptical. But I have witnessed incredible improvements, and at time cures, with my own eyes.Why do the media and the federal bureaucracies think they should decide what can be tried or heard? Those people have investigated nothing about these compounds. But they do have a vested interest in vaccines and other pharmaceutical medications.Keep in mind that a huge portion of the advertising revenues (70 percent) for mainstream media comes from pharmaceutical manufacturers.The Dangers of Wearing a Face MaskIn this period of near-panic over the COVID-19 virus, state and city governments have instructed people to wear face masks of various types over their mouths and noses, under the mistaken belief that it will stop the spread of the virus. This has continued even though the CDC never suggested it in the beginning, and research points to masks as being ineffective for preventing the spread of viruses.1-3 There is no scientific proof that wearing a mask is effective for containing a pandemic. But then politicians aren’t really interested in science. Furthermore, the surgeon general recently announced there was no need for people to wear a face mask unless they were actively infected.What is not being considered is this question: Is it actually dangerous to wear a mask over one’s nose and mouth for long periods? There is evidence to suggest that it is dangerous. First of all, it’s not natural to re-breath exhaled air. After all, we exhale to rid our lungs of air that has high levels of CO2 and other unwanted gases. But when you cover your nose and/or mouth, you end up re-breathing that air, which raises your blood level of CO2. That can be harmful.In addition, face masks cause people to re-breath exhaled viruses, thus increasing the number of viruses in the lungs and up the nose, providing the viruses access to the brain through the olfactory (smell) nerves.Studies have shown that wearing even a rather loose surgical-type mask significantly lowers blood oxygen levels.4The N95 mask can lower blood oxygen so much (up to 20 percent the normal level) that a person can even black out, as happened to one man who was driving around alone wearing one.5 He blacked out and wrecked his car. He was lucky not to have been hurt or injure someone else.I often see people riding in cars wearing these masks. The media-driven panic is making people do dangerous things.In addition, how many elderly people have passed out and hit their head while wearing a mask? Of Ventilators Can Worsen COVID-19 OutcomesThere is growing evidence that placing COVID-19 patients on respirators (ventilators) may be triggering their deaths. In general, patients put on a respirator have a mortality rate of 50 percent to 70 percent. Several doctors working with the severely ill patients have noted that using other methods of delivering oxygen to these patients produced much lower death rates.A young doctor working in a busy New York intensive care unit (ICU) was apparently the first to notice that his patients did better if he avoided putting them on respirators. He used high flow oxygen instead. But because the ICU followed a fixed protocol, the doctor was told to treat his patients the same way other doctors were, or leave.Since then, more evidence has accumulated suggesting that respirators can cause considerable additional lung damage and may contribute to the death toll. In addition, doctors were not treating the intense inflammation they saw, thinking it was necessary for killing the virus. But that kind of inflammation actually interferes with virus killing. And when they did treat the inflammation, they used steroids, which suppressed immunity and worsened the outcome.Inflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-6 (IL-6) and TNF-alpha appear to be playing a major role in the severe lung damage. Baicalin powerfully suppresses both IL-6 and TNF-alpha. It has been shown that drugs that selectively lower IL-6 result in a much higher cure rate and having to never put patients on respirators. Baicalin also suppresses IL-17, another important cause of lung destruction.In the end, the mania for ventilators may have led to a lot more deaths.
Page 4 The Blaylock Wellness Report June 2020DrBlaylock.Newsmax.comspecial concern are those who have existing pulmonary conditions such as COPD, asthma, emphysema, or pulmonary fibrosis. The additional hypoxia (low oxygen level) could put them in grave danger of suffering additional lung damage. Why is this not being addressed?Major medical centers have announced that we appear to be on a downward curve with regard to serious COVID-19 cases, with more hospital discharges than admissions and far fewer ICU admissions. But from the news media, you would think we’re at the peak of the outbreak and that cases are still increasing exponentially — which is just the opposite of what we are seeing.Still, many large stores, such as Costco, are requiring customers to wear these dangerous masks or be sent away. Obviously, this has nothing to do with the virus or people’s health. In fact, it’s harmful to people’s health. This mania about wearing masks needs to end now, before more people get hurt.Social Isolation Can Lead to Deaths of DespairWe see the very same kind of mania with “social distancing” and “sheltering in place,” ridiculous terms coined by bureaucrats. There is no scientific evidence that either, in any significant way, reduces the risks associated with this pandemic. Never in the history of epidemiology or public health have healthy people been quarantined to prevent the spread of a disease. You quarantine the sick, not the healthy.The vast majority of the population is at little or no serious risk from this virus, and the notion that asymptomatic people are carriers is not scientifically valid. People who have had the virus without symptoms develop antibodies, just like those who get sick. And like those who get sick and recover, they no longer shed the virus. They are, in a word, cured.We are also seeing tremendous health consequences from “sheltering in place.” In New York and many other places, people are dying at home from diseases that could be successfully treated in an emergency room because they are afraid to go to the hospital. In addition, domestic crime rates, including child and spousal abuse, are increasing the longer we continue this insane policy.Socially isolated people face increased risk of death from a number of causes, especially cardiovascular disease. We call these “deaths of despair.” Studies have shown that even a 1 percent increase in unemployment can result in 39,000 deaths of despair over the next five years. We now have nearly 15 percent unemployment.The lesson is that social isolation can have deadly consequences. Frail people are more likely to die under such conditions. But incredibly, grandparents are being told they may have to go to their deaths without seeing their grandchildren. And people dying in hospitals and nursing homes are having to die alone, without family nearby. This too must stop.Cytokine Storm and Other Harmful Immune ReactionsIt’s been established that people who die from viruses such as influenza and COVID-19 most often are killed because of an intense immune reaction within the lungs. This may seem counterintuitive. You would think an intense immune reaction should quickly kill the virus, and all would be well.But the danger occurs when part of the immune system is defective and triggers a very intense inflammatory reaction (release of cytokines and chemokines) rather than an effective virus-killing cellular immune response. In fact, the most important immune cells, called lymphocytes, are usually killed by such an intense inflammatory reaction, allowing viruses to grow and spread unimpeded.Current subscribers have instant access to any and every past edition of The Blaylock Wellness Report.Simply go here: drblaylock.newsmax.comThe password for every issue is providedin the introductory e-mail.Exclusive to Current Subscribers
June 2020The Blaylock Wellness Report Page 5NewsmaxHealth.comWhile there has been a lot of attention focused on the cytokine storm reaction to COVID-19, another reaction has been all but ignored: excitotoxicity.Most people think that excitotoxicity occurs only in the nervous system, but glutamate receptors are found in all tissues and organs, including the lungs.6, 7These receptors are especially dense along the medium-sized and smaller breathing tubes of the lungs, called bronchioles.When inflammation is triggered in the lungs, glutamate receptors are activated, resulting in a destructive excitotoxic reaction within the tissues of the lungs. This causes severe damage to the air passages, air sacs, and other lung tissues. Together, inflammation and excitotoxicity constitute a process called immunoexcitotoxicity, which I have described in relation to brain disorders.8Proof that glutamate receptor activation and excitotoxicity are playing a major role in lung damage was demonstrated by several studies in which NMDA glutamate receptors were blocked using a pulmonary injury animal model for sepsis.9Blocking these glutamate receptors reduced the accumulation of fluid and pus in the animals’ lungs, lowered the level of inflammatory cytokines, reduced tissue damage in the lungs, and improved survival in the animals.Immune cells such as macrophages and lymphocytes also contain glutamate receptors.10, 11 The loss of lymphocytes in COVID-19 infections may be caused by excessive glutamate receptor stimulation.Americans consume many foods that are high in glutamate — both as an additive and naturally occurring. High intake of glutamate has been shown to cause prolonged inflammation in the liver and lining of blood vessels.12Older people often eat fast food and processed snacks — things that contain the most glutamate additives. This kind of diet also increases risk of: • Heart failure• Strokes• Seizures• Hypertension• ArrhythmiasEven in hospitals, feeding-tube formulas often contain very high concentrations of glutamate and other excitotoxins. Patients on ventilators are regularly given these formulas.These studies emphasize that ignoring the excitotoxins in feeding formulas may be severely harming patients.A Diet for ResilienceWhen I go to the grocery store, I look to see what other people have in their shopping baskets. Mostly, I am appalled. The other day as I was checking out, I noticed that the man in front of me was dutifully wearing his face mask and his neoprene gloves. Then I glanced in his basket and was amazed that he had little actual food among the things he was purchasing: sweetened drinks, a six pack of beer, pastries, breads, cookies, and other non-nutritious items.The irony struck me immediately. This man was so afraid of a virus that he was masked and gloved, but he was eating things known to weaken his immune system and destroy his health. Unsurprisingly, he was obese.That man is not an exception. Americans as a group have one of the worse diets in the world. The usual fare includes enormous amounts of sweetened foods and drinks, an equally enormous amount of omega-6-fats and processed meats, and very few or any fresh vegetables. With the exception of the vegetables, all those foods weaken the immune system. And it’s not just younger people. A large percentage of our elderly population eats the same way, and they rarely exercise.The worst immune-suppressing “foods” are sugars (and high-glycemic carbohydrates) and omega-6 fats. Sugar consumption can suppress cellular immunity for days. Omega-6 oils — such as corn, safflower, sunflower, soybean, peanut, and canola oils — powerfully suppress immunity and increase inflammation.13Most processed foods (including salad dressing) use one or more of these oils. Those foods should be avoided.Instead, high quality extra-virgin olive oil should be eaten with each meal. Olive oil contains two powerful antioxidants (hydroxytyrosol and oleuropein) that improve blood flow.14 And it has a great number of other health benefits.Extra-virgin olive oil can be used on a variety of
Page 6 The Blaylock Wellness Report June 2020DrBlaylock.Newsmax.comfoods. For instance, rather than using ketchup as a condiment, you can put olive oil in a small dish and add mustard to create a sauce condiment that goes very well with meat dishes.You can also use coconut oil. If you don’t like the smell or taste of coconut, try refined coconut oil, which has no taste or odor.I also recommend adding turmeric powder to either olive or coconut oil. This adds anti-inflammatory and antioxidant power.Artificial sweeteners, including aspartame (NutraSweet), also impair the immune system.15Aspartame contains an excitotoxin called aspartic acid. As noted, excitotoxins have been shown to play a major role in increasing the damage from cytokine storms, which are the main cause of death in COVID-19 patients who require a ventilator.Red meats can also be a problem during infections because their high iron and high glutamate contents can worsen an infection.16Eating fresh vegetables with meats reduces iron absorption.Vitamin C should never be taken with meals, as it can dramatically increase iron absorption. Anemia (low blood iron level) can worsen infections, but iron replacement must be undertaken slowly and carefully during an active infection. Taking large amounts of iron during a major infection can lead to adverse reactions, even sudden death.Processed meats and cheeses are the worst processed foods found in supermarkets. Numerous studies have linked processed meats to cancer — especially childhood brain tumors, which are increasing enormously.Never use omega-6 oils for cooking, especially peanut, soybean, or corn oil. All are easily oxidized when exposed to air as well as when heated. They promote cancer growth and spread, and damage the brain.Breads and pasta are high in gluten and glutamate, and should be eaten only in small amounts.Chicken and fish (especially small fish, like sardines) that are low in mercury the safest proteins to eat, especially if they are organically raised.Kale is an excellent vegetable that should be steamed or cooked in boiling water. Like most vegetables, kale is high in lectins. But heating destroys lectins and pouring off the liquid removes lectins.Vegetables are also high in carotenoids, polyphenols, and flavonoids that protect the body from damage by free radicals and lipid peroxidation. Cabbage, cauliflower, and cilantro all have this effect.The best things you can drink are purified water (in a glass, not from a plastic bottle) and tea. The best tea is white tea, because it has very low fluoride content and is high in healthy flavonoids. Next in line is green tea. Chamomile tea has a high level of a flavonoid called apigenin, which has anti-inflammatory (especially for the intestines), anticancer, antiviral, and antioxidant properties. Black teas can have very high fluoride levels, and fluoride is an immune suppressant. They should be avoided.Most tap water is high in aluminum. When aluminum combines with fluoride, it forms a very toxic compound called fluoroaluminum.17, 18 To remove this toxic compound requires either distilling or filtering by reverse osmosis. If you distill your water, you will need to add a small amount (100 mg per gallon) of magnesium to the water.Exercise for Strength, Endurance, and Resilience A great number of studies have shown that moderate exercise improves immune function along with building endurance and strength.19 Yet while exercise is a good thing in general, it can be a double-edged sword. A note from Dr. Blaylock: Advertisements for various supplements may appear in the newsletter or attached to the newsletter. I have nothing to do with these advertisements and do not endorse them. The only supplements I endorse are those that I list in the newsletter. This is not to say that I object to the supplements; it’s just that I am not familiar with the supplements being advertised.Please note that this advice is generic and not specific to any individual. You should consult with your doctor before undertaking any medical or nutritional course of action.
June 2020The Blaylock Wellness Report Page 7NewsmaxHealth.comExtreme exercise has been shown to significantly suppress immunity, especially cellular immunity.20Post-race pulmonary infections are quite common in marathon runners and extreme athletes.21 That’s because intense exercise dramatically increases metabolism, which in turn generates an outpouring of free radicals and lipid peroxidation products. Over time, this can cause considerable damage to cells, tissues, and organs. That’s one reason it’s not uncommon to see extreme runners who look like POWs, with extensive atrophy of their muscles.Muscles should have bulk to them. Resistance exercises combined with moderate aerobic exercise is a good regimen for maintaining health as well as immune resilience. Swimming, brisk walking, bike riding, and weight lifting are all recommended.Exercise has also been shown to protect the brain and reduce cancer risk.22, 23 But again, extreme exercise can have the opposite effects. Increasing intake of antioxidants is important for protecting against the adverse effects of intense exercise. Sources of such antioxidants include:• Flavonoids • B-complex vitamins• Magnesium• Selenomethionine• Vitamin C• Vitamin E• N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC)For older people, even leisurely walking will significantly improve cardiovascular health, and resistance exercises will strengthen bones, tendons, and ligaments.Plant Extracts That Inhibit Viruses and Stop Cytokine Storms Considerable research has examined the effectiveness of a number of plant extracts on viruses and bacterial sepsis. One of the most impressive natural compounds for fighting viruses and bacteria — as well as the body’s own cytokine storm — is baicalin, which is extracted from the plant Scutellaria baicalensis (skullcap).This compound comes in two forms — baicalin and baicalein. They are quite similar, but for some viruses the baicalein form is more potent. The difference between the two is the presence of a sugar component in baicalein.Baicalin has been shown in mice to inhibit the influenza A virus and significantly shorten disease duration, improve survival, and dramatically reduce lung damage.24In addition, studies have shown baicalin to be effective against H1N1 strains of flu virus — even strains resistant to antiviral medications.25, 26 One way Low Brain Energy Can Cause Emotional Problems Certain parts of the brain act as major sites for emotions such as anger, fear, love, compassion, empathy, envy, and awareness of one’s surroundings in a realistic way. Together, we call these parts of the brain the limbic system. Studies of schizophrenics (who were not on medications), found that there were significant biochemical changes within the membranes of neurons in a specific area of the frontal lobe of the brain called the prefrontal cortex. Special brain scans that can measure brain functioning and metabolism demonstrated that the prefrontal cortexes of schizophrenics have low levels of metabolism, suggesting that this part of their brains were unable to effectively utilize glucose. As a result, levels of ketones rise in an attempt to supply needed brain energy. It has been shown that the ketone beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) is higher in the blood and spinal fluid of schizophrenics. Unfortunately, most schizophrenics are unable to raise ketone levels sufficiently to overcome the energy deficit in that part of the brain. In one study, researchers found that the higher a person’s BHB level, the greater the improvement in memory and other symptoms of schizophrenic patients. Ketogenic diets have been shown to correct behavioral problems associated with animal models of schizophrenia and other psychiatric syndromes including depression, autism spectrum disorders, and anxiety.BLAYLOCK TIP
Page 8 The Blaylock Wellness Report June 2020DrBlaylock.Newsmax.combaicalin inhibits H1N1 and other flu viruses is by suppressing a critical enzyme called neuraminidase.27Baicalin also inhibits the HIV virus by blocking its entry into lymphocytes, the primary immune cell affected by AIDS.28Another study found that adding zinc to baicalin made the compound even more effective for inhibiting HIV.29Other viruses suppressed by baicalin include:• Zika virus• Enterovirus 71• Human T-cell leukemia virus• Respiratory syncytial virus• Human herpes virus type 6• Cytomegalovirus• Chikungunya virusSeveral other respiratory viruses are also inhibited.In a study of polymicrobial sepsis, in which numerous types of infectious organisms were made to enter the bloodstream causing widespread organ failure and death, baicalin greatly reduced the death rate and completely prevented organ and lung damage.30Sepsis kills approximately 80,000 Americans each year. In the study, death was initiated by a cytokine storm in the lungs, followed by a destructive spread of the process to all organs — exactly what we see in COVID-19 deaths. Animals that were given baicalin before the onset of the sepsis had a dramatic reduction in lung inflammation and organ damage, and a much lower death rate. In fact, the survivors’ lungs appeared to be virtually normal.Baicalin not only protected the lungs, but also increased clearance of the virus, which is necessary to stop the intense immune reaction in the lungs and save the patient.Other studies have confirmed that baicalin can powerfully protect organs even in the face of intense inflammation.31In the May 2020 issue of The Blaylock Wellness Report, I reviewed a study that demonstrated curcumin could powerfully protect the lungs against a virally induced cytokine storm and post-infection pulmonary fibrosis — a major complication following severe lung injuries.32For a person to reach blood levels high enough to protect his or her lungs would require using nano-curcumin (One Planet Nutrition) in a dose between 500 mg and 1,000 mg three times a day. But higher doses can be used.Another advantage is that nano-curcumin slightly thins the blood, thus preventing microcoagulation of vessels seen in the lungs during a cytokine storm.Another antiviral flavonoid, quercetin, inhibits a number of viruses, including:• Herpes simplex virus• Adenovirus• Respiratory syncytial virus• Rous sarcoma virus• Sindbis virus• Pseudorabies• Pseudoinfluenza33, 34And quercetin has another property that makes it effective against COVID-19 — it is a zinc ionophore. That means it opens a special channel for zinc to enter cells, which prevents the virus from replicating.This is the same mechanism by which the drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine dramatically reduce viral numbers, if given early in the course of the disease. In both cases, a person should take zinc along with the medication.It has also been shown that quercetin combined with zinc can lower virus numbers. To accomplish this, add nano-quercetin to 4 oz to 6 oz of water, mix well, then add 15 mg to 30 mg of ionic zinc.Luteolin combined with quercetin can also inhibit COVID-19.35Another plant flavonoid, kaempferol, can inhibit herpes simplex virus, cytomegalovirus, and poliovirus.36-38To get the greatest efficiency, you should combine several of the more effective and potent antiviral compounds, such as:• Nano-curcumin• Baicalin• Nano-quercetin• Nano-vitamin C• Vitamin D3• Vitamin K2/K3• Zinc
June 2020The Blaylock Wellness Report Page 9NewsmaxHealth.comBy combining these antiviral compounds with immune stimulation using beta-glucan, you can prevent becoming a victim of these viruses, as well as manipulation by the merchants of panic.Many people who have studied how people react to infectious diseases have concluded that those who take care of their health are more resilient, less frail, and more likely to survive these outbreaks. This involves regular exercise, eating a healthy diet, using stress-relief methods (including praying regularly), getting adequate sleep, practicing good dental hygiene, and taking essential supplements daily, such as:• Vitamin D3• Vitamins K2 and K3• Zinc• Magnesium• Selenomethionine• B-complex vitamins• Nano-vitamin C• Vitamin E (either vitamin E succinate, natural vitamin E, and tocotrienol)You can also take baicalin, nano-curcumin, nano-quercetin, and beta-glucan once a week for a greater level of protection.REFERENCES1.
