Early Clinical Observations on the Effects of Smallpox Vaccination
A detailed summary sourced from the early Holistic Schools of Medicine
If you would like to know more about me, the mission of this substack, or how you can contribute, please read this introductory post.
Note: This is a supplemental addition to my previous piece. I would strongly encourage you to read that article before reading this one as this one goes into more tangential and complex points that supplement the original, but many of you may find very insightful. Many of the concepts here also appear to apply to the COVID immunizations, however for length considerations, I will omit most of those connections and leave you to draw your own conclusions. All of the books I cited here can be easily found on Amazon and often as PDFs, but I avoided linking to them here and supporting Amazon. Lastly, as I did not want to further delay publication, a significant number of minor edits will occur in the next few days.
I did not expect to attract the viewership the original article received, or the follow-up by larger media outlets (Steve Kirsch’s newsletter, the Kate Daley show and mercola.com) and am sincerely grateful for your support, and those parties in particular in spreading this message. As I now have many readers, I will try to produce quality content as my time permits (with work and all), as I want it to be worth your time to read what I produce. For the time being I will focus on interesting bits of medical history (the next piece will be interesting lessons from the 1918 influenza I applied to my treatment of COVID).
Additionally, since my last publication a reader notified me of a short book written in 1889 and viewable online which concisely provides evidence for many of the points covered in Dissolving Illusions, such as the lack of efficacy from the vaccination, the diseases associated with its administration, the distortion of data used by government officials to claim benefit rather than harm, and false claim it reduced death in hospitals.
To be complete and illustrate the observed effects of the smallpox vaccines, this article is a bit longer than the previous. I could have cited significantly more resources, but I aimed to cover one text that was representative from each major school of thought at the time. Its sections are as follows:
-General Smallpox Observations
-Traditional Chinese Medicine
(my interpretations of the broader historical context and meanings to these events)
A belief exists within Chinese Medicine that different eras are characterized by different diseases; many disease patterns described in ancient medical texts are almost never seen now, while other disease patterns have emerged that were never mentioned in the past. From my own study of past medical literature, I agree with this conclusion. The nature of disease has changed dramatically, and numerous insightful approaches to medicine have become forgotten.
As a species, we seem to have traded a high rate of often deadly infectious disease for an ever-growing epidemic of chronic neurological and autoimmune conditions alongside a continual increase in all forms of cancer. As best as I can tell, this trend began 150-200 years ago. While this trend always increases with time, periodically events occur which create a dramatic spike in the trajectory. For example, to cite a passage from the Real Anthony Fauci:
“Under Dr. Fauci’s leadership, the allergic, autoimmune, and chronic illnesses which Congress specifically charged NIAID to investigate and prevent, have mushroomed to afflict 54 percent of children, up from 12.8 percent when he took over NIAID in 1984…. Graves’ disease, and Crohn’s disease, which were practically unknown prior to 1984, suddenly became epidemic under his watch. Autism, which many scientists now consider an autoimmune disease, exploded from between 2/10,000 and 4/10,000 Americans when Tony Fauci joined NIAID, to one in thirty-four today. Neurological diseases like ADD/ADHD, speech and sleep disorders, narcolepsy, facial tics, and Tourette’s syndrome have become commonplace in American children.” (p.36)
The evolution of the practice of medicine is an equally fascinating process to study. Many of the critically important standard medical approaches we take for granted now did not exist in the past, and it is often difficult to even comprehend how challenging life was without them. An uncountable number of physicians gave their blood sweat and tears to develop these approaches, often arriving at many dead ends, subsequently discarded medical practices and numerous horrific medical mishaps.
The book that I feel best describes the trajectory of our nation is the Robber Barons. To summarize: The post-civil war era was perfectly suited for a rapid industrialization of the continent. A few conniving scoundrels emerged that had no hesitation in doing whatever was needed to win. They voraciously consumed everything around them in their pursuit of profit, becoming fabulously wealthy and developing the United States into an industrial power.
A common Robber Baron approach was to, by any means necessary, monopolize their chosen industry and, frequently with physical or economic violence crush their competitors. John D. Rockefeller was amongst the most adept at this approach and before long monopolized the American Oil Industry. Overtime, the public got fed up with Robber Baron’s behavior and riding this popular sentiment, “to save capitalism” President Theodore Roosevelt broke up their monopolies.
In response to the trust-busting actions of Roosevelt, the Robber Barons diversified their holdings so there was no longer a single clear monopoly to dismantle. Rockefeller (and to a lesser extent Carnegie) identified the developing field of scientific medicine as an excellent investment. Rockefeller then used the same approaches he used to monopolize the petroleum industry to monopolize the new scientific medicine (which is why I believe understanding his earlier actions is so helpful).
At the turn of 19th century, 4 major schools of medicine existed within the United States: Allopathy (standard medicine), Osteopathy, Homeopathic, and the Eclectic School of Medicine (which was traditional naturopathy, much of which is no longer taught in the current naturopathic medical schools and will be henceforth termed “Naturopathy”). Many of the interventions utilized at the time by Allopathy, the standard form of medicine were very harmful and ineffective, so as safer and more effective approaches of medicine were developed, they gradually caught on and came to dominate the marketplace from Allopathy.
Following a series of actions at the start of the 20th century such as the Flexner Report, the Robber Barons successfully rewrote this paradigm to favor Allopathic medicine once again. This new form of scientific medicine was structured to require the continual input of external medical technologies, and thereby produce enormous profit for the owners of those technologies. The devastation of the 1918 Influenza accelerated this trend, as almost every medical approach had failed to prevent deaths from the illness, leading to widespread calls to refine the practice of “Scientific Medicine.”
While there are many miraculous modern medical technologies I frequently utilize, a significant part of my medical philosophy has been to create a style of medicine that has minimal dependence on external technologies. This was so that I can provide care in any environment I find myself within and so effective care can be directly administered at an affordable cost. For this reason, I’ve extensively studied these medical systems from a century ago for insights to my modern-day practice. To summarize my studies: I believe the emphasis on medical practices that require external technological inputs has led to a significant distortion in medical science where many areas of medical chemistry, physics and physiology that should be studied are not.
One of the curious observations I made in these studies was that the reports from clinicians a century ago showed their medical interventions was significantly more effective than the effects I witnessed those same therapies produce now. Overtime, I was able to find elders in each discipline who had studied with elders in their youth, and each person told me the same story. Tracing as far back as to clinicians who started practice in the late 1800s, throughout the course of their career, each had observed the patients they met decade by decade had greater illness than those who preceded them, and therapies that previously were highly effective lost much of their efficacy requiring them to develop new treatment approaches.
In short, it appears there has been a collective decline in the vitality of the human species which has created the modern illnesses. As best as I can tell, the initial trigger for this decline was the widespread adoption of mercury based medications (while many interesting early medical texts exist discussing this topic, the best reference I have come across is The Age of Autism) and the smallpox vaccination campaigns. My current hypothesis (and a much larger subject that will be touched upon in this essay) is that the unifying thread between each of these environmental toxins and the progressive decline in human vitality to some degree arises from each one creating fluid stagnation throughout the body, particularly of the blood and lymph.
General Smallpox Observations:
Throughout the course of the smallpox immunization campaigns, as discussed before 4 main schools of medicine existed, in addition to the newly established Chiropractic discipline and Chinese Medicine which had not yet entered the western world. As Medical Doctors were not necessarily Allopathic (homeopathic medical schools for example granted M.D. degrees), for ease of understanding, I will use terminology that identifies philosophical schools of medicine rather than degrees. It was also common at this time for individuals to have multiple medical degrees as each at the time required 2 years of schooling.
As discussed in the previous article, a minority of the Allopathic profession cited significant concerns with the smallpox vaccinations. In the writings I have uncovered, the Chinese Medical field provided a significant degree of context to illustrate the broader effects of the immunizations. The non-allopathic schools of medicine, Osteopathy, Homeopathy, and Naturopathy were all adamantly opposed to the early pharmaceuticals (particularly the mercury preparations) and immunizations. In turn their early texts emphasized over and over their significant acute and chronic toxicity. While Chiropractic Medicine in modern times is the health profession most outspoken against vaccination, and some were in the past, I have not come across detailed writings from this time period identifying issues with the smallpox vaccination.
In addition to the observed toxicity of the early immunizations, two reasons were frequently cited by these three schools for immunizations being medically unsound. First, the smallpox vaccines were viewed as inherently contaminated material that could not be decontaminated and made fit for human administration. Secondly, it was thought that the direct administration of the pathogen into the blood stream rather than typical routes of exposure heavily disrupted the natural mechanisms for developing immunity, thereby creating a wide variety of issues. In the following sections I will discuss observations from each of these branches of medicine and their opposition to forced vaccination.
The field of Allopathic Medicine (now simply known as “Medicine”) has always been hostile towards new ideas that go against the prevailing beliefs of Allopathy. Because of this, it typically takes a prolonged period of time for bad medical practices to be discarded, and in each generation reformers face great hardship from within their profession to correct mistakes they regard as self-evident. A common cited example is Ignaz Semmelweis, who came to the conclusion doctors working on cadavers immediately prior to delivering babies was responsible for the high death rate from post-partum infections found in these women. He proposed doctors disinfect their hands between touching corpses and delivering babies and received enough hostility from the medical profession that his colleagues eventually committed him to an asylum and where he died from complications of being beaten by the guards.
At the time when Jenner’s vaccination theory was introduced and had not yet caught on within the medical field, numerous physicians challenged it. They cited his poor experimental design and their own experiences of numerous patients with previous cowpox infections subsequently developing smallpox.
As the vaccinations became established within the Allopathic field, dissenting voices became rarer, but numerous physicians still spoke out, citing the adverse events they were able to observe in larger samples of vaccinated patients. Vaccine failure to prevent disease and large epidemics within immunized populations were cited. Death and debilitating complications such as erysipelas were the most frequently discussed direct complications of vaccinations discussed in the early literature. Reports from these early Allopaths can be found in my previous article.
Benedict Lust, a degree holder in each of the medical systems of the time, is considered by many to be a founder of Naturopathic Medicine. He served as the editor from the Universal Naturopathic Encylopedia Directory and Buyer’s Guide Yearbook of Drugless Therapy for 1918-1919. In this book, numerous references can be found to the harm of vaccinations and their weakening of human vitality, although unlike other authors in this article he does not provide as much detail on the specific effects of vaccination. A few quotations are as follows:
Medical science has always believed in the superstition that the use of chemical substances which are harmful and destructive to human life will prove an efficient substitute for the violation of laws, way and in this way encourages the belief that a man may go the limit in self indulgence that weaken and destroy his physical system, and then hope to be absolved from his physical ailments by swallowing a few pills, or submitting to an injection of a serum or vaccine, that are supposed to act as vicarious redeemers of the physical organism and counteract life-long practices that are poisonous and wholly destructive to the patient's well-being. (p. 13)
Following this pseudo-scientific diagnosis and method of cure, came the drugging phase in which symptoms of disease were unmercifully attacked by all kinds of drugs, alkalis, acids and poisons which were supposed, that by suffocating the symptoms of disease, by smothering their destructive energy to thus enhance the vitality of the individual. All these cures have had their inception, their period of extensive application, and their certain desuetude. The contemporary fashion of healing disease is that of serums, inoculations and vaccines, which, instead of being an improvement on the fake medicines of former ages are of no value in the cure of disease, but on the contrary introduce lesions into the human body of the most distressing and deadly import. (p. 13-15)
A citizen has an inalienable right to liberty in the pursuit of happiness. Yet the real saviors of mankind are persecuted by the medical oligarchy which is responsible for compulsory vaccination, compulsory medical inspection of public school children, and the demands for State and Federal departments of health, all for the ostensible good of the people, but in reality for the gain of the Medical Trust. (p. 23)
Only those are in danger of infection from an acute disease, whose systems are already sufficiently encumbered with foreign matter: or, as commonly expressed, who are predisposed to such disease. Up till now it has not been known wherein this predisposition consists. The difference in operation between this natural inoculation of morbid matter, and the unnatural process of inoculating it by vaccination with the lancet, lies in the difference in the inoculated matter and in its dilution. Homeopathy teaches that all substances are most effective in a state of dilution, for which reason the fermenting morbid matter is so highly efficacious in its natural dilution, when it finds a suitable soil. In allopathic doses the vaccine virus, like all allopathic remedies, has a paralyzing effect on vital power; that is, it deprives the body of the vigor which it needs to throw off the foreign matter in it by acute disease (curative crisis, fever). It increases, also, the quantity of the morbid matter and thus produces a far more chronic state, as clearly proved by the steady increase of all chronic diseases since the introduction of vaccination. All the other remedies against fever, such as quinine, antipyrin, antifibrin, morphia, etc., have the same effect. They simply paralyze the efforts of the system to regain health, and reduce, or even stop, the fermentation of the foreign matter, but never eject it. Hence arise the diseases which were formerly rare, as cancer, intense nervousness, insanity, paralysis, syphilis, consumption, scrofula, etc. The system becomes more and more encumbered with foreign matter, but is without ability to summon up strength to throw it off by some acute curative crisis. The encumbrance reaches its highest limit in the above diseases, and full relief is then usually no longer possible. Precisely those medicaments which possess the property of most speedily suppressing fever, as quinine, antifebrin, antipyrin, plienacetin, etc., have become the favorite remedies of the physicians against fever. It is our firm conviction that such are precisely the most dangerous means of injuring the health. (p. 260-261)
The patient was a lady, 41 years of age, and had been perfectly healthy until vaccinated in her second year; from that time dated her misery. After the vaccination, obstinate eruption of the skin broke out, which in her tenth year developed into lupus of the face. For over thirty years this lady had suffered from this painfully disfiguring disease, without finding assistance anywhere, notwithstanding that she consulted many famous physicians. Her face was horrible to look at; in fact she could go nowhere without people turning their gaze from her with aversion. In this helpless condition she came to me, all the doctors having pronounced her disease incurable. My diagnosis showed an extremely favorable position of the encumbrance, so that I could assure her of good prospects of a rapid cure. This opinion was confirmed. After only a fortnight the disfiguring lupoid places on the face had undergone considerable change and were no longer quite so repulsive. Her digestion, in particular, which had till now never received any attention, had also improved quite remarkably. The result was abnormal evacuations, whereby the morbid humors were expelled. In seven weeks the patient's skin assumed the normal color. (p. 337)
Vaccination has the effect of greatly weakening the vitality; hence it is, that the morbid matter which has gradually accumulated in the body, no longer makes itself known through small-pox epidemics, but through much more horrible, lingering, often incurable diseases, such as tuberculosis, cancer, syphilis, epilepsy and insanity. Unfortunately, the orthodox school has not sufficiently grasped the nature of vitality. Were it otherwise, the injurious influences of the poisons contained in the medicaments which are introduced into the patients, whether by inoculation or inunction, would not remain hidden to its disciples—even though such influences may often only appear after many years. (p. 416-417)
The practice of vaccination and inoculation is a fatal error, such as history has seldom to chronicle. (506-507)
While I have avoided discussing the Chiropractic literature on the smallpox vaccinations, it is briefly mentioned within this text. On pages 851-853, it discusses F.W. Collins (M. D., D. O., D. C, Ph. C), a well regarded Chiropractor, who had also been trained on other medical systems of the time who shared Lust’s philosophy of medicine which opposed vaccination. On page 861, it discusses E.W. Ferguson D.C., a chiropractor who also shared this philosophy.
Within Homeopathy and some schools of Naturopathy, an idea exists known as Herring’s Law of Cure (which is also found within Chinese Medicine). It posits that diseases enter the body superficially, and then can either be expelled superficially, such as through the skin, or travel deep into the body. When the disease stays at the surface, acute reactions such as skin eruptions and fevers occur, while when allowed to travel in, they create a variety of chronic debilitating diseases.
The goal of these systems is hence to facilitate the outward expulsion of disease, which contrasts with the focus of allopathic medicine which often strives to suppress these symptomatic expulsions. For example, I and many others have observed that treating a fever with Tylenol in most cases ultimately leaves the individual worse off than if the fever had been left alone. However, in the majority of cases, fevers are immediately treated by medical providers.
With certain diseases, the Homeopathic community observes a specific remedy is highly effective in the majority of cases with the disease (this for example was the case for Gelsemium with the 1918 influenza, which also often works for COVID, although unlike the 1918, in many cases it does not, and a different remedy is needed). With both smallpox infections, and symptoms from the cowpox vaccine, Thuja was found to be the remedy that provided the most benefit. Homeopathy also believes certain chronic disease “miasms” can persist for long periods of times, and even in this age, my homeopathic teachers would periodically cite cases to me of patients suffering from a miasm from the smallpox vaccination that required homeopathic treatment.
One Homeopathic Physician of the time, J. Compton Burnett, M.D., in 1884 authored “Vaccination and Its Cure by Thuja, with Remarks on Homeoprophalaxis.” In this book, he advanced the argument that the medical field had mistaken correlation with causation in the smallpox vaccination programs. The vaccine was only considered to be effective if it “took” after vaccination, meaning that a large skin eruption emerged at the site of vaccination. In turn, if the vaccinations did not “take” this argued that the vaccine needed to be re-administered, or the individual was not “vaccinated.”
Burnett and others argued that the vaccine “taking” was a sign of the individual having a strong immune system, and that if the immune system was strong enough to “take” the vaccine, it was also already strong enough to repel a smallpox infection and had no need to be vaccinated in the first place. As he discussed the conflicting perspectives of the pro-vaccinational literature and anti-vaccinational literature [the terminology of being “anti”-vaccine is over a century old), he argued that the pre-existing immunocompetency of the vaccinated individual could explain the divergent observations in mortality by each camp.
Conversely, he found that almost all cases of severe chronic illness following vaccination (termed vaccinosis) occurred in individuals who had had a smallpox vaccine that did not take, and instead moved deeper into the body creating chronic pathology. One of the strongest arguments for his observations was his observation that homeopathic Thuja preparations would frequently treat these conditions that temporally correlated with vaccination.
Lastly, he was amongst the earliest I have found to advance the now common arguments against population wide vaccination. He noted in the literature of the time that there were often severe deficiencies in assessing the actual impact of vaccinations as the total number of people vaccinated (the denominator), was frequently unknown and the morbidity of vaccinations was often not considered in the mortality benefit calculations.
Burnett’s book begins with a description of vaccinosis, and is primary composed of noteworthy cases he felt illustrated the point, some of which I will highlight. As I reviewed his clinical observations, many of the chronic symptoms he detailed in these patients (particularly the various “neuralgias” repeatedly mentioned) appeared to be consequences of “blood stasis,” something discussed further within the Chinese Medicine section:
The diseased state , then, engendered by this vaccinial pus , by vaccination , is vaccinosis ; and in it are not included any other diseases whose causes may be accidentally or incidentally contained in the vaccine pus,—such as scrofulosis, syphilis, or tuberculosis. (p. 3-4) (Note: This was also discussed by AT Still).
Vaccinosis shews itself as formidable acute disease that may terminate fatally, or it may manifest itself as a chronic affection. The ordinary forms of vaccinia must be included under acute vaccinosis. (p. 6-7).
Chronic vaccinosis more particularly lies completely beyond the ken of ordinary medicine , and although it will sometimes turn up in literature as "Ill effects of vaccination ," it is , nevertheless, but an unrecognised waif, much to the disadvantage of suffering mankind and of medical science . It has not yet been sufficiently studied to be readily defined*; except causally, indeed , its very existence is not generally admitted . But a study of the following cases will afford ample evidence that its symptoms are very like the pathogenetic symptoms of Thuja Occidentalis. (p. 8)
* See, however, the writings of Rummel, Bænninghausen, von Grauvogl, Kunkel, and H. Goullon.
Some may, perhaps, say that vaccinosis is the same as vaccinia; this is, however, not so ; vaccinosis is vaccinia and something more, for if a person is vaccinated unsuccessfully he has not had vaccinia, whereas some of the worst cases of (my) vaccinosis which I have met with were just those in whom the vaccination did not " take,” as the saying goes. Hence . I must call attention to what I believe is a fact, viz. : that it often does take deep hold of the constitution without calling forth any local phenomena, and , not only so, but such cases may be even very sévere in their internal developments manifested by the supervention of various morbid symptoms after vaccination . Let us dwell a little on this novel assertion , I was going to say fact, yet probably very few will admit that it is a fact at all , but only a fad of mine , since every body holds that if the vaccination does not " take " the individual has remained uninfluenced by the process of putting vaccine under the cuticle . In other words, when a person is vaccinated and does not take ; is , in fact, unsuccessfully vaccinated , it is held that said person is proof against vaccination, and we certify accordingly. Every one believes that the unsuccessfully vaccinated individual has not in any way been affected or altered by the vaccination.
CLOSE AND MINUTE OBSERVATION , HOWEVER, TEACHES ME THAT SUCH IS BY NO MEANS NECESSARILY THE CASE , FOR NOT A FEW PERSONS DATE THEIR ILL HEALTH FROM A SO - CALLED UNSUCCESFUL ,VACCINATION. My own conception of the thing is just this :—The vaccinated person is poisoned by the vaccine virus ; what is called the “taking” is, in point of fact, the constitutional re-action whereby the organism frees itself more or less from the inserted virus. If the person do not “ take,” AND THE VIRUS HAS BEEN ABSORBED , the “ taking ” becomes a chronic process-paresis, neuralgiæ , cephalalgiæ , pimples, acne, & c. The less a person "takes,” therefore, in such a case, the MORE is he likely to suffer from chronic vaccinosis, i.e. , from the genuine vaccination disease in its chronic form , very frequently a neuralgia or paresis.
Most practitioners will agree that neuralgia is more prevalent now than ever before within the present age, and experience has forced me to ascribe many such cases to vaccinosis (p. 10-13).
Burnet cites a case of 10 week old baby who had been healthy, and then suddenly became at risk of dying with no cause to establish it. After investigating furthered, he discovered the wet-nurse (surrogate breast milk supplier) for the infant (who was in good health) had received a smallpox booster the day before the infant became ill and she reported the site was “a little painful.” Burnett also cited another case of a breast-feeding child becoming ill from the smallpox vaccine and another developing Eczema and a chronic rash:
Therefore I gave Thuja 6, in pilules , both to babe and nurse, but whether every half-hour or every hour I do not now remember . Calling later in the evening I noticed baby was asleep and looking a little less ghastly. Next morning it was indeed still pale, but practically well ; and the vaccinial vesicles on the nurse's arm had withered, and they forth with dried up completely, in lieu of becoming pustular. That baby never looked back, and is now a bonny child. (p. 17-18)
The next case illustrates another key aspect of vaccinosis:
Its subject, a lady of very high rank, over fifty years of age, had been in turns, and for many years, under almost all the leading oculists of London for this neuralgia of the eyes, i.e. , terrible pain at the back of the eyes, coming on in paroxysms and confining her to her room for many days together ; some attacks would last for six weeks . Some of the neuralgic pain , however, remained at all times . Her eyes had been examined by almost every notable oculist in London , and no one could find anything wrong with them structurally , so it was unanimously agreed and declared to be neuralgia of the fifth nerve.
Latterly, and for years, she had tried nothing ; whenever an attack came on , she would remain in her darkened bedroom , with her head tied up, bewailing her fate. To me she exclaimed “My existence is one life-long crucifixion!”
I should have stated that the neuralgia was preceded, and accompanied by influenza.
In the aggregate these attacks of influenza and post-orbital neuralgia confined her to her room nearly half the year. In appearance she was healthy ,well-nourished, rather too much embonpóint, and fairly vigorous. A friend of hers had been benefited by homeopathy in my hands, and she therefore came to me “in utter despair”
I reasoned thus : This lady tells me she has been vaccinated five or six times, and being thus very much vaccinated, she may be just suffering from chronic vaccinosis, one chief symptom of which is a cephalalgia like hers, so I forthwith prescribed Thuja (30). It cured, and the cure has lasted till now. The neuralgia disappeared slowly ; in about six weeks (February 14,1882) I wrote in my case book “The eyes are well!" (p.40-43).
Upon further follow-up with this patient, she reported her chronic illness of 20 years remained fully resolved 3 years later at the time this book went to press. (p. 45)
Burnett also made observations that would be expected with our current knowledge of immunology:
Induration of the lymphatics on the left side of the neck (the vaccination being performed on that side), is the rule after vaccination as anyone may observe for himself if he will take the trouble to examine a healthy child just before vaccination and anytime thereafter. (p. 52-53)
On pages 55-58, Burnett details the case of a 12-year old who began losing hair after a vaccination that did not take (hairloss is also common with COVID and sometimes occurs after vaccination), and the hair loss reverting following administration of Thuja and remarks:
“It might have been so, as the hair is very powerfully influenced by the vaccine poisoning. Thus Kunkel observed both a very weak growth of hair, and an excessive growth, especially in wrong places, as effects, he believed, of vaccination.“
On pages 58-61 Burnett details the case of a gentleman suffering from recurrent colds, boils, pimples, warts, severe frontal headaches, chest pain and chronic fatigue preventing him from working at the office:
“The habitual influenza, the chronic frontal headache, the pimply skin, the feeling of general malaise point, according to my experience, to vaccinosis. But had patient been vaccinated? Yes. Four times, and did not "take" the last three times….This case made a considerable sensation in the gentleman's large office-circle, partly because the change in his condition was so sudden and complete, and partly because he came to homeopathy demonstratively unwillingly, and in consequence of the earnest solicitations of his chef de bureau.”
On pages 68-70 Burnett details the case of a woman who had been vaccinated three times:
“On December 22nd, 1882, a young lady of 26 came under my care for an ugly state of the nails of her fingers. Naturally a lady of her age would not be indifferent to the state of her nails. These nails are indented rather deeply, and in addition to these indentations there are black patches on the under surfaces of the nails, reaching into the quick…Has continued the Thuja 30 for just about three months, with the result that within a fortnight from commencing with it the black patches under the nails began to disappear, and there is now no trace of them.
On page 70-73, Burnett details the case of a young lady with a variety of issues including a drooping eyelid that had seen 2 skilled homeopaths prior to him, and like them, he could only achieve partial symptomatic until he utilized Thuja:
“She still complained of ptosis of the left side, sleepiness, reeling to the right when walking out of doors, tendency to fall to the right…her tongue was cracked…These more or less well-chosen remedies wrought a great change in the patient, but on the 29th July, 1882, she still complained that the left eye was wrong. It made her feel sea-sick when she read ; pains in left eye worse in the early morn ; some ptosis of left upper lid; eye-ball stiff, and an aching across it and right across the forehead, and she was giddy in walking about.
The case having thus come to a standstill, I cast about for some aetiologico-therapeutic appui, and in so doing learned that she had been vaccinated four times in all ; the last time, three years ago, took but faintly.
Thuja 30 soon cured the ptosis and the other described symptoms.”
The next case, detailed from 74-77 can be summarized by Burnets concluding statement: ”Loss of virile power is frequently a result of vaccination, and when the local debility is due to this cause it is really wonderful how the case is altered by a few doses of Thuja.”
He had had slight hemiplegia of the right side, and still shewed some symptoms of paralysis, e.g., weakness of right arm, occasional dragging of the legs, loss of memory, impaired vision, and loss of power generally. His effective virility was extinct and had been so for two or three years, and naturally this did not tend to raise his spirits. I treated him for a few months with but slight benefit, when one day he complained of a frontal headache that at once reminded me of the Thuja headache. I gave him Thuja occidentalis 30 (4 in 24) and within a few days he remarked a very notable improvement, feeling better than he had for three years. Getting this report at his next visit, I fell to questioning him about vaccination, which I had previously not done…”How many times have you been vaccinated?” “I have been vaccinated six or seven times." “Did it take every time?” “No, never.”
Following the four doses of Thuja, he also experienced a “hypopubic resurrection of great importance” and after additional Thuja, “he became ,in his wife's words "quite a different man; all paralytic symptoms having disappeared, and the old headache had not returned at the end of 1883, when I last saw him.”
On pages 78-80 a case is detailed of a partially disabled woman who had been vaccinated five times with one not taking. She had achieved minimal benefit from medical care up to that point, minor benefit from other homeopathics, and experienced a complete resolution from Thuja:
Her symptoms were legion; she was bent forward, could scarcely walk, her spine very tender and painful; twitchings; pain all down the back; and chilliness, worse at night. Her liver was decidedly enlarged and there was pain in the right side…. "I have not been so well for three or four years ; I feel strong, and can do anything.”
Another complex case is detailed from pages 81-83 in a patient who was vaccinated three times, and the last vaccination did not take. The patient experienced partial improvement from homeopathics targeted to her symptoms and complete resolution following Thuja:
…complaining of much epigastric beating, pain in left side, great chilliness, and
writer's cramp of the right side. An examination showed enlargement of the spleen, and a swelling of the left ovary of about the size of a hen's egg. Her breath is heavy, and she gets giddiness. She has frontal headache of a severe kind almost every day for a long time….Questioned on November 16th as to which medicine cured the headache and the cramps, she instantly said it was the powders (i.e.,the Thuja).
Pages 83-88 discuss the case of a 16 year old girl with arrested development and partial paralysis present for most of her life, who was born to parents of good health and high intellect (precluding a hereditary cause for her disability). She received a smallpox vaccination at 3 months which did not take at the first vaccination, but did take at 6 months when both arms were subsequently vaccinated:
“This was her state: roof of mouth very much arched; left side of face drawn to the left so that her mouth is awry. She speaks very badly ; cannot articulate properly ; and is very deaf. Has always been so. Has a polypus in left nostril ; the tonsils are enormously hypertrophied ; breathes very loudly. Left mamma smaller than the right; left side of thorax generally smaller than the right. Tongue is cracked; pain in left side for years; frontal headache for a twelve month.”
Following Thuja, her headaches, articulation, hearing and facial palsies greatly improved. A second homeopathic, Ceanothus Americanus was also administered following Thuja which restored the decreased growth of her left side.
At the start of this section, I briefly discussed Herring’s Law of Cure, something I have repeatedly witnessed in my medical career. When the COVID vaccines were first being developed, I extensively reviewed both the publicly available and leaked literature on the therapeutics. My best guess was the vaccines would be significantly more unpleasant than influenza vaccinations, but most of the issues which would emerge would be chronic diseases, particularly those of autoimmunity, infertility and cancer. As a result, I became very concerned when I began receiving and documenting a large number of reports of fatal heart attacks and blood clots within my immediate circle. As I reviewed Burnett’s book and contrasted it with the range of COVID vaccine injuries I have observed, it has led me to fear many people who did not experience the immediate acute reactions may have a wide range more insidious conditions that will gradually emerge. In short, as mentioned in the introduction, we are likely facing the next large spike in chronic illness throughout the population.
Of the pre-Rockefeller medical systems, Osteopathy was the only one able to survive the Allopathic monopolization of modern medicine (although in this day and age the profession has largely converted to an allopathic model). Its survival, in spite of Flexner also targeting the Osteopathic Medical Schools, was likely due to profound benefit patients with a wide range of conditions experienced from the early Osteopaths. For example, while Allopathy abjectly failed during the 1918 influenza, Osteopathy gained notoriety for its success in saving lives during the pandemic.
The founder of Osteopathy, AT Still was born with a high aptitude for observation and an unusual innate sense of medicine. After recognizing the profound shortcomings of Allopathy, he developed an effective new system of medicine that also aimed to correct the abhorrent social injustices of his era. During his lifetime, his work and insights were considered extraordinary by many and he is still deeply respected by many within his profession.
Still published a variety of texts so that he could make the practice of Osteopathy be available to the next generation. His final text, Research and Practice he believed encompassed the totality of Osteopathy and will be referenced for this section. As the book was broken into numbered sections, citations will be by sections rather than pages. Still strongly disagreed with the approach taken towards Smallpox and this can be found throughout Research and Practice.
It should be known where osteopathy stands and what it stands for. A political party has a platform that all may know its position in regard to matters of public importance, what it stands for and what principles it advocates. The osteopath should make his position just as clear to the public. He should let the public known, in his platform what he advocates in his campaign against disease. Our position can be tersely stated in the following planks:
“Third: We are opposed to vaccinations.” (16)
I do not wish in the least to antagonize the efforts of Jenner. His efforts were good, but more effective and less dangerous substances can be used than the putrid compounds of variola. I believe that cantharidin [discussed later] will be found just as protective against measles, diphtheria, scarlet fever, leprosy and syphilis and other infectious contagions as against smallpox. This is the twentieth century and our school was created to improve on past methods and theories; let us keep step with the music of progress. (819)
Notwithstanding that the so-called preventative has in thousands upon thousands of cases proven worse than the disease smallpox itself, the doctors have been content to follow Jenner's teachings. There is no evidence on record that any effort has ever been made to effect a departure from the long taught and faithfully practiced lesson of injecting the cowpox virus with its hidden impurities into the arm of man to immune him from smallpox. (808)
I feel certain that the time is close at hand when compulsory vaccination will not be necessary, for a better method, one that will do the work and leave no bad effects as is the case in vaccination with the cow, horse or other animal poisons, has been found. The dread of disease and death that follow vaccination causes people to hesitate before having vaccine matter put into their own arms or into the arms of their children by military force. When they learn that a fly-blister as large as a fifty-cent piece or a dollar will keep off smallpox in all cases, then there will be no fear or trouble about smallpox or vaccination. (819)
I would not antagonize the popular belief in the efficacy of vaccination but do most emphatically combat the insertion into the human body of putrid flesh of any animal. With this belief in reference to vaccination as a preventative of smallpox and with the chances to contract other diseases to which the cow and horse are subject so very possible and well proven by the great number of persons who have been vaccinated and crippled for life, I concluded that it was about time for the sons and daughters of America to take up the subject of prevention and see how their skill would compare with that of Jenner of England. (813)
I have often been asked, what are my ideas of vaccination. I have no use for it at all nor any faith in it since witnessing its slaughterous work. It slew our armies in the sixties [in reference to the Civil War] and is still torturing our old soldiers, not to say anything of its more recent victims whose number will run up into tens upon tens of thousands. I believe that instead of passing laws for compulsory vaccination, a law prohibiting the practice and providing heavy penalties for violations would prove a wholesome experiment.
Take the fifty cents out of the "dirty" practice and it will die out spontaneously with all doctors of average knowledge of the harm done by it. The philosopher must find something better as a germifuge, or by legal measures, hands off. I have long believed that the wisdom of man was sufficient for a successful hunt for an innocent and trustworthy germifuge for smallpox, and that it would be found early in the twentieth century if we would but work and reason. (816)
I will not dispute or try to criticize so great a man as Jenner, but I will say that in all the histories of the man and in his own works I do not find a single word of his philosophy nor any reason why he believed that the cowpox would fortify the human body against the entry of smallpox. He simply reported that a less number of milkers took the smallpox after they had "sore hands" supposed to have been caused by getting the poison in some cut, scratch or broken surface of the skin of the hands. Since his day the world has been content to hunt for that "stuff" that was on the cow's udder. No questions were asked, it was simply, "I want some of that stuff what makes folks hands git sore." (817)
I believe that the discovery of Jenner gave nothing to the world excepting the history of an accidental cure or supposed preventative to smallpox. He gave no reason why one poison would immune the person from another poison. The doctors simply accepted, tried and adopted the supposed remedial power of cowpox, sore or cankered heels of the horse. They gave us no caution or hint that the grease heels of the horse might be a venereal disease peculiar to the horse only. They told us nothing of the cowpox, whether or not it was venereal in its nature. Like the adoption of most "remedies" the doctor uses or has used, it came to notice by accident. (818)
Still also observed a wide range of chronic illness resulting from immunization.
“When I have a case of glandular enlargement, I ask my patients to roll up their sleeves, and as I expect, they show me vaccine scars which are generally large and deep and the report is that there was much suffering during their development [this also discussed above by Burnett]. From my observations, I reason that the vaccine virus or poison which is still retained in the system is in these cases showing its effects in connection with the glandular enlargement and has done its part in weakening the powers of renovation in the whole glandular system. (480)
[In reference to Hydrosis] Etiology: I have always looked for the cause of such effects as are seen in either deficient or profuse sweating of the hands, the feet, the axilla, of any one part, or of the entire body and I consider them to be the result of temporary or continued paralysis of the nerves which control the sweat glands of the entire body, or some portion of it. In many cases I think this condition follows vaccination, whooping-cough, measles, tonsillitis pneumonia and all such diseases as temporarily or permanently derange the nerve and blood supply of the lymphatics of the superficial fascia. (486)
In conclusion I will say that many of my patients report that they have never been physically strong since they were vaccinated with impure vaccine matter. Thus we have the effects to combat, and our only hope is to adjust and keep the bony framework all in line so that all impurities will have a chance to pass off and out. (709)
Still regarded Smallpox as one of the worst plagues upon humanity and regularly found himself treating patients who had smallpox. There, he observed the wide degree of susceptibility individuals had to it. As his previous smallpox vaccines had not taken, despite numerous attempts, he initially dreaded catching smallpox from his patients. As this never happened, he eventually concluded that 3 months of repeated applications of Fever Blister [catharidin] by his mother during childhood was responsible for both his immunity to smallpox and the vaccinations not taking (which generally agrees with but in one aspect challenges Burnett’s thesis). Still ultimately believed fever blister worked by increasing the body’s ability to expel rather than internalize smallpox and this was the ideal way to treat the disease. (807-814)
During the past few years I have subjected it to every possible test in all parts of the United States where smallpox has been rampant. I have never found a single instance in which the trial has not proven my claim that cantharidin will immune man from smallpox without harmful results. Many are familiar with the results obtained in Kirksville during our recent so-designated "smallpox scare." We used it on from 2,000 to 2,500 of our townspeople with unquestionable results. (807)
I have solicited correspondence from doctors of sixty years of age and upwards, on the subject of the fly-blister's work in their early practice when it was used in any and all forms of disease. The correspondence has been exceedingly gratifying to me for in every instance where my correspondent could correctly answer my questions, my deductions as to the value of cantharidin as a germifuge in smallpox have been sustained.
But what is more to the point, since my article appeared in the Journal of Osteopathy last January the graduates of the American School of Osteopathy, who have been guided by my instruction, have reported thousands upon thousands of cases in which cantharidin had been used as a preventative of smallpox during an epidemic and not a single individual whose arm had been blistered as directed contracted the disease. (815)
According to its friends and advocates, the effect of vaccination leaves the body in from one to seven years and then there is a demand for repeated vaccination with its lurking dangers. A Spanish fly- blister [a common source of cantharadin] may be used on the arm many times a year if necessary- and act as a preventing germifuge without harm. (814)
A single blister will immune for a long time, but it is well enough when a heavy epidemic appears to blister the arm again. There is not a shadow of danger from its use. (820)
Presently, cantharidin is primarily used within dermatology for warts and molluscum contagiosum (a wart like condition), as the blisters it produces treat those skin problems. I suspect when used in the manner Still described, it may have a similar range of action to Mistletoe. Mistletoe is a frequently utilized European cancer therapy from Anthroposophic medicine with many interesting properties that are beyond the scope of this article that may be applicable to some of the chronic complications of the COVID vaccines (essentially it works by improving immune function).
A medical condition exists in Chinese Medicine known as blood stasis (it was also independently discovered by American and European scientists approximately 50 years ago, whom after direct observation of the phenomena within blood vessels termed it blood sludging). In this condition, red blood cells clump together, rather than being separate and free flowing.
Blood stasis creates a variety of cardiac conditions as the heart cannot effectively pump the more viscous blood, and this more viscous blood is unable to get to tissues that require it. This leads to tissue atrophy, strokes or microstrokes, pain at the site of obstruction (not unlike a sickle cell crisis) and a variety of autoimmune conditions (which I believe is due to congestion also occurring concurrently within the lymphatic circulation).
In 1830, Wang Qingren wrote a famous medicinal textbook, the Yi Lin Gai Cuo, which attempted to reform Chinese Medicine by correcting what he believed to be false beliefs within the profession. While confrontational, Wang Qingren’s work was eventually well received and heavily influenced the direction of Chinese medicine. The smallpox was also discussed within it.
Prior to Wang Qingren, there were a variety of competing schools of thought on what the primary causes of illness was (the main ones included cold invasion, heat invasion, kidney yin deficiceny and spleen qi deficiency). While blood stasis was recognized in Chinese medicine, for the first 1800 years of the medical system, it had never been viewed as a key cause of illness by any school of thought within Chinese medicine. Wang Qingren argued that blood stasis was frequently the root cause of illness and the most important thing to treat for resolving illness.
His ideas were gradually adopted within the Chinese medical field, and blood stasis began to be viewed as an underlying cause of disease, leading to classical herbal formulas being adjusted to include herbs that mobilized stagnant blood. My colleagues in this discipline estimate that since the late 1980s-1990s, the top Chinese medical doctors have shifted their focus to blood stasis, and as time moves forward they find it is more and more important to prioritize treating blood stasis. Blood stasis has become a national research priority of the Chinese Communist Party, and significant data on the phenomena has accumulated from both a traditional and scientific model to explain it.
While it is possible that blood stasis had been entirely overlooked by everyone for 1800 years prior to Wang Qingren, my colleagues within the Chinese medical field believe something fundamentally changed at the time he was putting his theories together. For example, the Chinese medicine doctor who as far as I know has the most success treating heart disease within the United States (and has a very large practice devoted to this) treats heart disease almost entirely through a blood stasis model. Similarly, the American and European scientists who studied this phenomena in the 60s and 70s found heart disease was highly influenced by the degree of blood sludging present. Yet heart disease is a new disease, and in past centuries, it was much rarer to have heart attacks.
As discussed in the previous article, the original management for smallpox was variolation, or innoculation with the smallpox virus rather than the cowpox approach popularized by Jenner. While much was written in my previous article on the Japanese smallpox immunization campaigns, the earliest reference I could find of the cowpox vaccination entering China stated:
Vaccination was first introduced into Canton and Macao [provinces in China] in 1805 by the famous Balmis Salvany Expedition organized by King Carlos IV of Spain. However, the practice was not readily adopted and only spread at all widely in China during the latter half of the 19th century. Indeed, vaccination in China was totally inadequate until the campaign mounted in 1950.
This in my eyes argues that a temporal correlation exists between the adoption of smallpox vaccinations and the influx of blood stasis within the Chinese population. A correlation may also exist with the practice of variolation (discussed in the previous article), but I was unable to find sufficient evidence to support that claim.
I will now discuss some pertinent observations from Gunter R. Neeb’s Blood Stasis: China’s classical concept in modern medicine, many of which dovetail to the previous observations within the other early schools of medicine. Each of the following passages were compiled by Gunter Neeb directly from Wang Qingren’s observations 192 years ago written within the Yi Lin Gai Cuo.
Infections like Shang Han, febrile diseases, pox and abdominal neoplasms all contribute to ‘heating’ the Blood (today we would say that they contribute to releasing inflammatory factors and increasing viscosity). Blood stasis of this kind gives the gum a blue-purple shading. When the Blood is dead (necrosis) the gum turns black and the teeth fall out. How can anyone continue to live in this state? Even if the patient takes cooling medicinals, the Blood will clot and death will set in even more quickly. (p. 194)
[note: direct heating of the blood creates partial coagulation, which is why looking at blood under a heat emitting light was found by previous researchers to create artificial blood sludging, whereas a heat filtered light did not]
Can children also become affected with one-sided paralysis? I can report the following. There are a considerable number of children ranging from the age of 1 year to later childhood who will suddenly become affected with this disease. In most cases this is the consequence of Shang Han, Wen Bing, pox-like infectious diseases, dysentery-like diseases and so on. After the disease the Yuan-Qi is damaged, the complexion is cyanotic-pale, the hands and feet are gradually less able to move, and in severe cases there are cramps in the limbs. The limbs themselves are as stiff as clay. All this is the consequence of Qi not reaching the limbs. (p. 209)
[note: the previous case from Dr. Burnett where the patient experienced paralysis of one side, likely due to blood stasis on that side of the body]
Necrotic blood clogs the vessels, so the toxins of the febrile infection cannot be expelled outwards via the skin, and therefore they attack the organs in the interior. When the organs are irritated by the Heat-toxin, a corresponding and unfavourable pathology will develop in each organ. (p. 217)
If the secretion inside the pustules fails to regress, then this is due to the fact that Blood is not flowing back into the vessels; and the Blood isn’t flowing back into the vessels because the infectious toxin continues to generate febrile Heat in the vessels, so the Blood coagulates and the passages are clogged up. Once the Blood stasis in the vessels is removed, one need not fear a delayed regression of the secretions in the pustules. (p. 218)
In summary, if there is a mild infection with a febrile infectious disease (Wen Yi), this will then come out in the skin eruptions (exanthema). After the exanthema the prognosis is good. If the infection with the febrile infectious disease is severe, it will remain in the interior and is not expelled with the pox exanthema. This indicates danger. If the infection with the febrile infectious disease is extremely severe, it will generate internal Heat pathogens in the Blood and make the blood coagulate. Coagulated blood is purple, and necrotic blood is black. How the pathology is identified depends on whether there is purple or black blood with the pox. (p. 217)
As the previous passages show, both Chinese medicine and homeopathy, as described by Herring’s law of cure, believe that the deeper a disease is able to penetrate into the body, the more likely it is to become severe. In turn, they frequently argue that directly administering a pathogenic agent deep into the blood stream creates a chronic disease state that would not typically occur following direct exposure to the agent, especially in those lacking the ability to expel it.
Cowpox shares many properties with smallpox, and hence similar incidents of blood stasis were observed as it became able to penetrate deeper into the body. While modern TCM has taken a more accommodating stance towards vaccinations to be accepted within the medical field, they still hold the perspective that vaccinations create latent heat within the body (which can transform to blood stasis). In my own experience, blood stasis (and concurrent stasis in other fluids, particularly lymphatics) is a key cause of disease in many patients I see.
Modern Research on Blood Stasis:
The standard medical diagnosis most related to blood stasis is hypercoagulability. While there are some nuances between them (for example, hypercoagulability tends to overlook micro-clots, the blood can become “thicker” and more viscous prior to coagulating or clotting which is also significant, and blood stasis tends to also occur in tandem with lymphatic stasis). For this section I will ignore the distinction between blood stasis and hypercoagulability.
In addition to the extensive research published by the Chinese government relating blood stasis to a variety of conditions, agents causing hypercoagulability have also been explored in the conventional scientific literature.
There are a few agents I have come across which frequently cause blood stasis and hypercoagulability: Malaria, Aluminum, Viral Infections, the SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein, and Cancers. As a result, many shared disease processes can occur between these agents, and as stated above, I often find myself needing to treat this blood stasis in clinical practice to resolve the issues of my patients.
After I published the previous piece, a reader alerted me to the work Sherri Tenpenny did examining the link between viral infections and hypercoagulability. Additionally, as highlighted above, I believe this hypercoagulability is more likely to occur during direct inoculation of the virus to the blood stream from vaccination. Her investigation was initiated after trying to understand the link between Bush’s post 9/11 smallpox vaccination campaign in the military and the resulting heart issues it created. As hypercoagulability is a likely etiology, it should be noted it is also known to be found in other viral infections, as endothelial [blood vessel lining] cell pertubation creates hypercoagulability.
“Direct interaction between microorganisms and endothelial cells can also occur, especially in the case of viral infections. Endothelial cell perturbation [disturbance] is a common feature of viral infection and can alter hemostasis in both a direct and indirect manner. Endothelial cells can be directly infected by a number of viruses (e.g., herpes simplex virus, adenovirus [J&J, Astrazeneca and Sputnik V are modified adenoviruses], parainfluenzavirus, poliovirus, echovirus, measles virus, mumps virus, cytomegalovirus, human T-cell lymphoma virus type I, and HIV). In particular, viral infection of endothelial cells has been demonstrated in hemorrhagic fevers (e.g., Dengue virus, Marburg virus, Ebola virus, Hantaan virus, and Lassa virus).”
At the time adverse events were observed from the recent smallpox vaccination campaign, mainstream news sources stated the inflammation produced by the vaccination make the link between the vaccination and heart disease “biologically plausible” and numerous authoritative parties such as the American Heart Association urged caution with the vaccination program. At least one research grant was approved to study the link between endothelial damage and the smallpox vaccinations, but as far as I could tell their results were never published (a major challenge in evidence based medicine is the lack of publication of studies that produce undesirable results).
This state of hypercoagulability was also proposed as a potential mechanism to explain Gulf War Syndrome. This is relevant, as while there were many potential causes of Gulf War Syndrome, it was best linked to the experimental Anthrax vaccinations that were forced on the military, leading to laws being passed that were supposed to make mandatory vaccination of the military with experimental vaccinations illegal. As far as I can tell, the anthrax vaccinations were amongst the most harmful in history, and varied in their concentration of a novel adjuvant, squalene, which according to an offline reference I was provided, correlated with the degree of adverse reactions (the “hot lots” with the highest dose of squalene most severely harmed their recipients). Interestingly, the same company that produced the anthrax vaccinations (and was repeatedly cited by the FDA for their poor manufacturing of the vaccination) was subcontracted by Johnson and Johnson to produce their COVID vaccine.
Hypercoagulability has also been observed in other viruses such as influenza but are particularly characteristic of COVID: “Histologic analysis of pulmonary vessels in patients with Covid-19 showed widespread thrombosis with microangiopathy. Alveolar capillary microthrombi were 9 times as prevalent in patients with Covid-19 as in patients with influenza.”
A colleague and skilled immunologist considers the endothelium to be the least appreciated organ of the immune system, and one of the most important areas for the field to research. Endothelium dysfunction in turn has also been linked to COVID-19’s hypercoagulability. To quote a final study exploring this issue:
“Autopsies were performed at the Mount Sinai Hospital on 67 COVID-19 positive patients and data from the clinical records were obtained from the Mount Sinai Data Warehouse. The experimental design included a comprehensive microscopic examination carried out by a team of expert pathologists, along with transmission electron microscopy.”..…“We report a comprehensive autopsy series of 67 COVID-19 positive patients revealing that this disease, so far conceptualized as a primarily respiratory viral illness, also causes endothelial dysfunction, a hypercoagulable state, and an imbalance of both the innate and adaptive immune responses. Novel findings reported here include an endothelial phenotype of ACE2 in selected organs, which correlates with clotting abnormalities and thrombotic microangiopathy, addressing the prominent coagulopathy and neuropsychiatric symptoms. Another original observation is that of macrophage activation syndrome, with hemophagocytosis and a hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis-like disorder, underlying the microangiopathy and excessive cytokine release.”
Similarly, Steve Kirsch has recently brought attention to the serious concern that a high percentage of individuals vaccinated for COVID, following death when examined by coroners have large blood clots in their circulatory system in this and other articles. This is concerning and a highly unusual finding those coroners interviewed and their colleagues had not seen during their lifetime prior to this vaccination campaign.
That all said, I sincerely appreciate those who were able to take the time to read through this. I faced a variety of editorial decisions on what needed to be included to paint a complete picture, and what could be omitted to shorten it. I hope this result is satisfactory. If this work is appreciated I will work on additional essays in the future as time permits.
