Should You Take Drugs to Cure COVID-19?

Some brave members of the medical community have been recommending the use of certain medications to treat what has been called the COVID-19 disease. These drugs, formerly used for other diseases, have been found to be helpful with COVID-19 (AKA the coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2) by these physicians.

Some of these protocols also include the use of zinc, which is known by itself to strengthen the immune system and thus suggested as an aid in reducing the impact of the SARS coronavirus as well.

Nevertheless, important additional questions one should ask when using any synthetic drug, no matter how long it has been on the market, would be:

  • Are these drugs safe? That is, do they have any known toxicities or adverse effects?
  • How safe are they? Safe enough for children or senior citizens?

Let’s explore this a bit. First, let’s take a look at what the recognized “experts” have to say.

People seem to be putting a lot of stock in the World Health Organization (WHO) these days, so what is their position on these issues?

COVID-19 Advice for the Public: Myth Busters

In short, as the WHO puts it:

To date, there is no specific medicine recommended to prevent or treat the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

WHO Coronavirus Myth Busters

OK, what about vaccines, according to the WHO?

In short:

No. Vaccines against pneumonia, such as pneumococcal vaccine and Haemophilus influenza type B (Hib) vaccine, do not provide protection against the new coronavirus.

The virus is so new and different that it needs its own vaccine.

WHO Coronavirus Myth Busters

Over time the WHO position changed once the experimental COVID-19 “vaccine” became available through the EUA (emergency use authorization). This shot, which is actually causing more harm than the virus as statistics about its impact grows, is not even a vaccine by the standard CDC definition (unless they change it which I don’t put past them) of a vaccine.

Rather, it is more akin to injectable genetic engineering by inserting mRNA instructions to create a spike protein inside the human body. Nevertheless, rather than pursue that tangent and get off track, let’s take a closer look at a popular physician based protocol.

A Closer Look at the Hydroxychloroquine-Azithromycin Combination

One popular combination prior to the introduction was that of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin (sometimes zinc was recommended as well with the aforementioned two drugs)

So, what are we to make of this suggested combination of drugs?

Let’s take a look at what a popular consumer source like has to say about hydroxychloroquine (Hide roxy KLOR oh kwin) and chloroquine.

First of all, it should be noted that both hydroxychloroquine and it’s sister drug chloroquine are anti-malarial medicines. They work by interfering with the growth of parasites in the red blood cells.

COVID-19 is a virus. All viruses are not related to parasites. They do not belong to the same family that the malarial parasite, Plasmodium does.

According to the website, MedBroadcast:

The Plasmodium parasite that causes malaria is neither a virus nor a bacterium – it is a single-celled parasite that multiplies in red blood cells of humans as well as in the mosquito intestine.

Medbroadcast – Malaria (Tropical Diseases, Parasitic Infection)

Clearly, both hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine are not designed to treat viral diseases. This would be called an “off-label” or non-standard use of the drug.

Of note, viruses are tiny compared to even a bacteria which can be 100X or more larger.

Consequently, they are much harder to target with a drug meant to treat a single-celled parasite which can exist independently of the cell and also able to mobilize themselves, as well as take in and digest food.

Conversely, the minute size of viruses points to an important feature of a virus never recognized by almost all medical experts, nor the media. Viruses are not even considered to be living entities.

The reasons for concluding this is because they lack motility (ability to move themselves). They also have no digestive tract nor any way to take in food. Most importantly, they can only viably exist inside a living cell.

However, some doctors still recommend this protocol as a viable treatment, particularly before the introduction of the so-called COVID “vaccine”. A question one should ask then is, “Could there be any harm in trying them anyway?”

The answer to that question would depend on the current state of health of the infected individual and their overall patient profile such as:

  • Pre-existing conditions?
  • Current Health?
  • Age – child or senior?
  • Current medications and interactions with the newly considered ones?

As with any medication you need to take these factors and others into account. For many of these considerations and to determine known adverse effects you can go to the links above at or simply put in the name of any drug you are considering or using and find out for yourself. (Note: More on side effects are covered below in this post.)

Let’s look at at the adverse or side effects in just one of the medications mentioned in this protocol.

Adverse Effects of Hydroxychloroquine

Below is a partial list of the adverse effects of hydroxychloroquine:

And this is considered a “safe drug” by the way. Personally, with all of those potential adverse effects in the mix, I would not consider that medication safe. I would say that the standards of safety are not very high when it comes to the pharmaceutical industry. My personal ones are higher. But hey, that’s just me.

The truth is all synthetic drugs are unnatural chemicals that do not blend with our natural biological systems very well. As a consequence of their foreign nature and the fact that our blood distributes any drug that enters our body to our entire body (typically within two minutes or less), there are side effects.

That’s why the PDR (Physicians Desk Reference now called the Prescriber’s Digital Reference) was larger than a bible and loaded with adverse effect listings from annoying to fatal.

What about Azithromycin?

As previously noted, Azithromycin is an antibiotic. The coronavirus is well…a virus. Viruses and bacteria are two different animals as they say.

Antibiotics work by targeting the growth-machinery in bacteria (not in viruses) to kill or inhibit those particular bacteria. That’s because viruses and bacteria are structurally different.

Bacteria vs. Viruses and Prescribed Medications

Bacteria have more machinery. They can, therefore, exist independently of and divide outside of the body’s cell.

Viruses are more simple in structure. They allegedly need to borrow the machinery of a living cell in order to replicate by penetrating the cell and getting inside of it, according to researchers.

As previously noted, viruses are so simple that they do not even earn the title of a living organism. They have no motility (ability to move on their own) and have no means of digestion. They are considered parasitic in nature and cannot even exist outside the cell.

Thus, antibiotics cannot kill viruses because bacteria and viruses have different mechanisms and machinery to survive and replicate.

It is important to note, the antibiotic has no “target” to attack in a virus. So, antibiotics do not work on viruses and vice versa. Conversely, anti-virals do not work on bacteria.

There are anti-viral drugs that are claimed to do that, but there is a biological price to pay. That biological price is what is known as a side, adverse or unintended effect. Let’s again revisit the topic of side effects to clarify what I mean.

Why Drugs Have Adverse or Side Effects?

Apart from the fact that it is a synthetic foreign substance with unknown potentials inside the natural biological system, the problem with all drugs is that the entire volume of our blood is pumped around our body once a minute or so.

That’s because your body needs a steady supply of blood to keep your organs functioning properly.

This means that once any drug reaches the bloodstream. It is fairly evenly distributed throughout the entire body.

Truly, because of this, there is no such thing as a “magic bullet” as the old headache commercials used to depict.

Since, drugs reach all cells at some point, depending upon their amount and concentration, that is why there are side effects with any drug. And because they are foreign substances some of those side effects are adverse or unintended results.

Azithromycin mentioned above, as with any synthetic drug, also has side effects which you can see listed at this link to see for yourself. Thus, for your own safety, before you put a foreign substance like a synthetic drug in your body, check out its side effects.

What About Side Effects and Anti-Viral Drugs?

According to the list of influenza drugs on, there are 33 drugs used to treat influenza alone. Tamiflu is the most popular. A drug called Amantadine is the third most popular.

Since 3rd out of 33 ain’t bad, let’s look at Amantadine a bit more carefully.

As noted before with an anti-viral influenza drug such as Amantadine, there will be side effects.

Let’s take a gander at a partial list of the first few listed for this anti-viral medication:


The more commonly reported adverse reactions for Amantadine have included nausea, dizziness/lightheadedness, and insomnia.

Nervous system

Common (1% to 10%): Dizziness/lightheadedness, ataxia, headache, somnolence, dystonia

Uncommon (0.1% to 1%): Weakness, slurred speech, hyperkinesia

Rare (less than 0.1%): Convulsion

Frequency not reported: Falling asleep during activities of daily living, withdrawal-emergent hyperpyrexia (a syndrome resembling neuroleptic malignant syndrome)

Postmarketing reports: Coma, delirium, hypokinesia, involuntary muscle contractions, gait abnormalities, paresthesia, EEG changes, tremor[Ref]


Very common (10% or more): Hallucinations (up to 21%)

Common (1% to 10%): Insomnia, depression, anxiety, irritability, hallucinations, confusion, nervousness, abnormal dreams, agitation

Uncommon (0.1% to 1%): Psychosis, euphoria, abnormal thinking, amnesia

Rare (less than 0.1%): Suicide attempt, suicide, suicidal ideation

However, it does not stop there, the list goes on. Amantadine has side effects on the gastrointestinal tract, eyes, respiratory system, skin, kidneys, bladder, liver and muscular system. You can view the full list at this link.

And, this is only one anti-viral!

Under my standards, not a very inviting alternative to herbal, nutritional and dietary solutions that when properly applied, can be very powerful agents for producing healthy states of being.

If you want to research other anti-virals, surf to Put the generic or brand name of the drug into the search engine and pull up the results. You may be surprised at what you find.

Before taking a drug let me once again mention that it’s your body.

Unless there is a threat of imminent death and a guarantee that the drug would safely prevent that happenstance, it would be prudent to research any drug you are considering putting into your body.

Treating Viruses

We know that viruses are very simple organisms. They are not even considered to be living organisms because they cannot reproduce on their own as mentioned above.

From a natural health perspective viruses and bacteria are normally occurring entities which some believe are not the threat that the “germ theory” of disease claims they are. I am not in agreement with this theory, but do understand its claims which I will briefly outline next.

Germ Theory

From the Pasteur germ theory perspective that standard, drug-oriented solutions endorse, viruses must hijack DNA to produce RNA from the cells they enter.

According to the allopathic medicine worldview of germ theory, viruses carry their RNA or DNA payload inside a capsid which is a hard protein shell that cannot be easily penetrated, if at all.

The capsid permits the virus to remain dormant and escape attacks from our natural antibodies in the temporary inactive form.

In the inactive state, they avoid detection as a foreign invader because they are a non-active threat. It is kind of like the mother ship, Nebuchadnezzar, lying low in the Matrix movie to avoid detection by the Sentinels.

According to the germ theory of virology, if or when the correct conditions arise again, it is believed that viruses reactivate themselves to replicate and increase which will produce the disease symptoms all over again.

Considering the issue from this perspective, this would explain why viral conditions like Lymes disease may be so difficult to treat.

Hence, according to the modern medical perspective, antivirals do not always eliminate the symptom causing viruses because the virus goes into a state of dormancy as outlined above. As noted this keeps their DNA/RNA payload viable and safe in the capsid until the attacking antibodies or more likely medications are no longer present.

Once the threat has ended, the viruses reactivate. Active once again, they begin to attack cells to replicate themselves recreating the disease symptoms.

Anyway, that is what the virologists that subscribe to the modern medical germ theory claim happens. Of course this description also serves as a means to again recommend the drug or another as well, but it doesn’t do much to promote personal responsibility for one’s health.

Assuming that this is what happens, I would suggest that this would be a good reason to focus on keeping your immune system strong and healthy, not research what drugs, accompanied with side effects work best.

Can the Suggested Drug Combo for COVID-19 Really Help?

Based on what we have covered, the first thing to understand is that these two drugs, whether used in combination or alone, are not anti-viral drugs.

The fact that they are producing relief then suggest that it may not even be related to the alleged COVID-19 cause the SARS-CoV-2 virus. (If it even exists since it was never properly isolated, another tangent not to be addressed here.).

Why would a drug designed and used since 1944 like chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine to treat malarial parasites, work on a miniscule virus – a microbial class not even considered a living entity which is completely unlike the malaria parasite? In fact, it is very possible that it does not.

A confirmation of this speculative conclusion is also reinforced by another physician recommended drug – Ivermectin.

Experienced medical doctors like Dr. Ryan Cole who is trained in the Mayo Clinic and a board certified pathologist with his own clinic in Idaho presents on the utility of Ivermectin in treating the COVID symptomology.

In his 17 years of practice at the clinic, he has seen about 350,000 patients. His clinic has done about 100,000 COVID tests in the year preceding his presentation, so he does have some basis in clinical experience to lend context to his conclusions.

Dr. Cole, recommends Ivermectin as being proven safe and effective not only against the alleged SARS-CoV-2 COVID-19 virus but against other viruses such as the West Nile, Dengue and Ebola viruses to a degree, and all coronaviruses as noted in the presentation at this link.

As it turns out, this “wonder drug from Japan”, Ivermectin, was originally used to treat livestock and companion animals to kill a wide range of internal and external parasites. It was quickly found to also “be ideal in combating two of the world’s most devastating and disfiguring diseases which have plagued the world’s poor throughout the tropics for centuries.”

Those would be:

  • Onchocerciasis
  • lymphatic filariasis

Both of these devastating, third world nation diseases are parasitic diseases. Again, a parasitic drug surfaces as being safe and effective in treating the COVID-19 symptoms.

You can find out more about the origin, background and primary intended application of Ivermectin at this NIH (National Institutes of Health) site.

One Possibility

Therefore, it is logically possible that these M.D. recommended drugs are actually targeting and eliminating parasites and/or bacteria rather than coronaviruses? Perhaps in doing its intended job, it frees up the immune system to knock out the coronavirus or at least curtail the need for its production in the cells as the natural health perspective would view it.

Or…the problem is not a viral issue at all, but rather a parasitic or bacterial issue.

From a natural health perspective, the antibiotics that are eliminating symptoms of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 (not a guarantee that you have the alleged disease btw referred to asymptomatic which makes no sense whatsoever) may be the product of the patient’s immune system which has been compromised.

A compromised health condition is generating bacteria and viruses to help clean up the problems. The additional microbials are helpers and symptoms of a diseased or imbalanced condition, not the cause.

Another way to think of it is that a compromised immune system and the appropriate terrain (internal state) for disease such as an acidic condition, will encourage the growth of bacteria to help restore balance by eliminating toxins or damaged cell parts.

Since bacteria can self-replicate, if the internal terrain is acidic in nature some bacteria, as well as viruses, may proliferate more freely. This can happen quickly if the immune system is not strong and active.

Note: This is a good reason to keep the gut microbiome healthy which includes the use of probiotics, not antibiotics.


Another possibility is that the patient was misdiagnosed. They never really had the coronavirus or if they did, COVID-19 was not the cause of their symptoms? The COVID test is not reliable as noted by the CDC and the manufacturers. Nor was it ever intended to be used as a diagnostic test according to Kerry Mullis, who won the Nobel Prize for its creation.

One conclusion that can be drawn from the facts heretofore presented is that the two combination drugs above are not directly impacting the COVID-19 coronavirus. In fact, the impact these drug combinations are having, based on their primary intended target usage, would then be considered indirect at best.

Let’s return for a moment to the adverse or side effect considerations for a little closer consideration of these medications as a COVID relief tactic.

Side Effect Considerations

It’s important to understand that side effects are a consideration that must be taken into account with every synthetic medication prescription.

Side effects always occur with synthetic medications (originally derived from petrochemicals) because they are by their very nature, not naturally occurring chemical combinations. They are isolated, lab created concoctions not found in nature and therefore foreign entities in animal or human bodies.

The end result is that after being introduced into a naturally produced biological being, scientists cannot fully predict what impacts they will have or where those impacts may surface immediately or over time with continued use.

Large publications like the PDR (Orginally called the Physician’s Desk Reference but now the Prescribers’ Digital Reference since it is no longer published in printed format) have been created to help doctors determine many of the unintended side effects of prescribed medications.

Consequently, in place of passive acceptance of any drug recommendation, one should do their homework and read up on the unintended effects which can easily be found online these days at sites like

Your potential risk needs to be weighed against your potential reward. So, do your own homework to be safe.

You would do well to not simply rely upon a medical doctor, who is taught to primarily dispense pharmaceutical drugs for all of the answers to health related problems. It could cost you dearly, economically and otherwise.

Let’s take a look at another potential problem with these drugs which is something called quinism.


One natural health practitioner, Trudy Scott, author of The Anti-Anxiety Food Solution, wrote an article on her blog detailing the dangers of the hydroxychloroquine protocol in creating “quinism and the risk of sudden and lasting neuropsychiatric effects“.

The disorder of “quinism” has been laid out by the non-profit “Quinism Foundation” who write about and track the side effects of antimalarial drugs. Some of these symptoms are noted above.

In addition to the physical symptoms there are also neuropsychiatric effects such as:

  • Nightmares
  • Anxiety
  • Agoraphobia
  • Paranoia
  • Depression
  • Personality Change
  • Suicidal Thoughts

For more details on this visit the Quinism Foundation or read Trudy’s article on the topic on her website.

Those additional issues withstanding, the fact that these two drugs that are not classified as anti-virals, raise some other implications that need to be answered:

  • Why is it that some people are reporting benefits from these drugs “off label” usage? What is different in their patient profile from others that make treatments with non-viral drugs work?
  • Could it be that patients labeled as coronavirus cases are not actually experiencing issues caused by the virus, but have other causes?
  • If the symptoms are not actually caused by the virus could this by why they are responding to drugs intended to treat parasites and bacteria, rather than viruses?

Another Important Consideration

As this so-called pandemic has enfolded, people and even medical professionals have concluded that this COVID virus is not as powerful and impactful as we have been led to believe.

Patients responding to drugs like hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin are indications they may not be recovering through the elimination of the alleged virus but as a result of treatment of other underlying issues involving other microbial entities such as parasites, a common entity which can cause life threatening and even fatal conditions in human beings.

Unfortunately, the assumed country of its origin, China, has not cooperated with the international community by sharing its data nor allowing other experts to examine the claimed impacts.

Speculations are this is because the Wuhan lab in China was engaged in U.S. funded gain of function research designed to increase the infection potential of the spike protein being used in the COVID injection, now inappropriately called a “vaccine”.

Keeping these considerations and questions in mind whether you choose to use the combination suggested above is your call. This post was created to provide you with a better understanding of your choices and the causes.

That being said there is another important question that needs to be answered.

  • Are there other ways to treat a virus or more specifically the COVID symptom complex?
  • Are there drugs and methods that are safer and more effective than the dangerous results the COVID “vaccine” has been producing?

From the point of view of natural solutions, the answer to that is affirmative.

It’s a pretty good bet that you won’t, of course, be getting those recommendations from your local hospital.

However, if there is a will, one can find safer and more effective alternatives than what the CDC, FDA, WHO, other so-called “experts and the media are promoting very aggressively.

Keep an open mind and do your homework. Your health and possibly your life may depend upon it.
