There Are Ways to Reduce Risks and Damage of Vaccine Adverse Events, Doctors Share Suggestions
Overlooked COVID Vaccine Adverse Events (Part 8)
In this series, we evaluate some of the lesser-known yet common adverse events that are appearing in the research literature and doctors’ clinics and, more importantly, how to deal with them and reduce the risks.
Previously: Jeff Jackson self-sufficient until he took the second dose of his COVID-19 vaccine and dark red shapes started appearing on the back of his head.Due to mandated vaccinations in his workplace, Mitchell McConachy, age 25, reluctantly took the jab in 2021. Since then, he has been worrying about adverse events.
In 2022, McConachy learned about COVID-19 vaccine adverse events from doctors online and realized his bouts of chest pain and throbbing in his head and wrists might have been attributed to the mRNA shots. He became increasingly concerned that these symptoms might precipitate something more dire.
McConachy's experience echoes one of many vaccinated people who are now concerned about potential vaccine risks. Some people didn't experience any symptoms, but still worry that misfortune will fall on their heads someday in the future.
Not Everyone Will Experience Vaccine Adverse EventsNot everyone who is vaccinated will experience an adverse event. This depends on a multitude of factors including the person's health, dosage, number of doses, and time since the last dose.
Board-certified internist Dr. Syed Haider, who has treated over 50,000 people since the pandemic, said that postvaccine symptoms tend to be reported in his patients several weeks after vaccination.
Naturopath Dr. Jana Schmidt, who has been contacted by around 2,000 vaccine-injured people, said that the symptoms generally emerge within the first few weeks to a month.
“If you are well after five months out, or a year out, with no symptoms, no problems, I really do want to reassure you that I think you’re okay,” critical care expert and co-founder of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care (FLCCC) Alliance Dr. Pierre Kory said in a report to the FLCCC, noting that many people have had no reactions to the vaccines.
It should be noted that Kory’s comments were made about cardiac events, which tend to occur quickly and suddenly. There are other concerns of neural diseases and cancer, where safety signals may be present but data is sparse.
Cancer, which can be present for months to years before it is detected, has been extensively related to COVID-19 vaccine adverse events; 60 percent of cancer VAERS reports are related to COVID-19 shots.
How to Reduce Risk of Vaccine InjuriesSome treatments that boost the body’s immunity and overall health should reduce people’s risks of developing vaccine injuries, but doctors do not know for sure.
They are uncertain how much of the risk is reduced when people take up certain treatments, and how long they should take these medications.
Reduce Spike Protein ExposureThe first way to prevent injury is to reduce further exposure to spike protein. Research has shown that the spike protein is inflammatory, may elicit autoimmune antibodies, and activates carcinogenic pathways.
Both the COVID-19 virus and its vaccines can expose the body to spike proteins. Therefore, both the COVID-19 vaccines and contracting SARS-CoV-2 should be avoided to prevent further spike protein injuries, Haider recommended.
Board-certified internist and cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough observed that his vaccinated patients who then contract COVID-19 tend to do worse than uninfected but vaccinated individuals.
Remove Spike Protein and Prevent Further DamageResidual spike proteins remaining in the body are believed to be contributors to vaccine adverse events, which may cause inflammation, autoimmunity, damage to cells and tissues, and may even trigger pathways that boost cancer.
To clear out spike proteins, individuals can take up fasting by abstaining from food and sugary drinks for prolonged periods to induce autophagy, suggested Dr. Paul Marik, a critical care specialist and co-founder of the FLCCC.
Autophagy triggers cells to break down and reuse proteins, which may cause the destruction and removal of spike proteins inside cells.
Nurse practitioner Scott Marsland told The Epoch Times that some people may not necessarily feel that they have any problems. However, once they start intermittent fasting and prolonged fasting for three days, they notice that their mind is clearer and symptoms they once attributed to aging are gone or alleviated.
Healthy LifestyleJust as COVID-19 revealed the unaddressed problems of chronic disease and unhealthy immunity, the current concern over vaccine adverse events may also demonstrate the importance of having a healthy body that can efficiently clear toxins.
Haider highlighted that human bodies are well-equipped and quite powerful. "They can essentially handle anything, even things that they've never seen before,” he said.
Therefore, rather than focusing on COVID-19 vaccines, which is a single potential harm out of many, Schmidt encourages people to focus on improving their body’s overall health.
This can include switching to a healthier diet by reducing processed food, increasing intake of organic, wholesome foods, drinking filtered water, and exposing their bodies to the sun so that they can produce vitamin D.
People should also check and correct underlying nutritional deficiencies, Schmidt advised.
Haider added that drinking water encourages the elimination of toxins through urination. Regular and consistent bowel movements prevent excessive storage of toxins. People can also consider going to saunas to remove impurities through sweating.
Healthy MindA healthy mind works in concert with the body for vitality and recovery. Researchers have found that fears, when chronic, can worsen physical symptoms.
Fear stresses the mind and body.
Dr. Cicero Coimbra, a renowned autoimmune specialist in Brazil who has reportedly reversed autoimmunity in over 15,000 patients, said that patients who were the least responsive to his treatment—around 15 percent—were those who had high levels of stress.
Schmidt observed that stress may also be a trigger for adverse events after vaccination.
She said that among the patients who developed symptoms several months after a COVID-19 vaccine, many of their symptoms were preceded by a stressful event.
While meditation, yoga, and praying can help to build a sense of tranquility, these practices generally offer temporary relief.
Possible Tests to Examine Asymptomatic ProblemsClinical tests are a financial and mental burden, so doctors generally recommend only testing if one experiences symptoms.
But tests can also give people peace of mind, especially when concerned and anxious.
So far there are no commercially available tests that can measure the level of spike protein, vaccine mRNA, or other vaccine ingredients in the body, though these may be available in the future.
Since spike proteins trigger antibody production, Marsland said that examining IgG spike antibodies can give him an indication of the spike levels in the patient.
The caveat is that not all patients with suspected spike protein damage will have anti-spike antibodies since immunosuppressed people may not be able to conjure an immune response to make antibodies. The spike proteins also like to hide out in fat cells, so obese people may also have no antibody readings since the immune system cannot mount an attack against spike proteins inside fat stores.
For this reason, overweight people may experience a sudden flare-up of symptoms once they start fasting, as the stored spike proteins are released back into circulation.
He runs an extensive test on patients’ nutritional levels and common biomarkers and also evaluates their alpha 2 antiplasmin and von Willebrand levels, both of which tend to increase with microclotting.
None of these tests is available commercially; only research laboratories have the microscopes used for this blood analysis test. Therefore, some doctors have learned the techniques themselves.
Other common tests include C-reactive protein tests, which may reveal inflammation, D-dimer tests that help detect blood clots, and tests that indicate troponin levels, as elevated levels can be a sign of cardiac injury or stress. Antinuclear antibody tests may indicate autoimmunity.
A doctor can usually diagnose myocarditis based on clinical symptoms, electrocardiogram (ECG), and MRI readings, said McCullough.
However, Marik said that many vaccine patients with adverse events who report cardiac problems may actually have normal MRI and ECG readings. He points to the PULS test, which predicts a person’s risk of acute coronary syndrome by measuring nine biomarkers. Acute coronary syndrome is often associated with heart attacks.
The test, however, can cost several hundred dollars to a thousand, depending on the provider.
The Silver LiningThough he was virtually forced to get vaccinated, McConachy said that his newfound understanding of the COVID-19 vaccines has made him a changed man.
"I now take my health more seriously," McConachy wrote to The Epoch Times in a text, saying that he has since made a "180" change.
"I’m now very conscious about what I eat, I stopped vaping, stopped using drugs, and was sober from alcohol for six months. Now I just drink in moderation." He has also started taking vitamins and exercising every day.
On social media, McConachy has made videos about adverse events associated with the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, advising his followers to do their own research. He said many people have told him that they have experienced chest pain and other symptoms.
McConachy was recently prescribed an ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine treatment to remove vaccine spike proteins and residual vaccine ingredients. He has since been supplementing with ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine weekly.
"It definitely gave me peace of mind and I can’t say I’ve had any chest pains since."
