the controversial issue of "shedding."
Kory and Marik are both part of the FLCCC, which was founded in 2020
to share early treatment protocols for COVID-19. Kory is an ICU
specialist, triple board certified in internal medicine, critical
care and pulmonary medicine.
He now runs a private

In the meantime, the FLCCC is

that doctors will begin to take those with COVID jab injuries
seriously and treat them appropriately.
As noted by Kory, COVID-19 is no longer an emergency.
The real emergency now is
the continued use of the COVID "vaccines," because they're creating
injuries on a level that is truly alarming and unprecedented.
He also cites life insurance data showing historic rises in excess
mortality among young people, and those data are supported by
vaccine injuries reported to the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event
Reporting System (VAERS) as well.
According to Kory,
estimates suggest some 500,000 Americans may have lost their lives
to these shots.
Data also show highly "vaccinated" and boosted nations are now
experiencing record case and death rates from COVID compared to
countries with low injection rates.
What's in the
The short answer to that question is,
"we have no idea," and that
puts medical professionals in a very precarious position...
Since they do not know
they're giving their patients, they can't even make educated
recommendations based on the patient's medical history, allergies
and so on.
While the manufacturers have revealed some of the ingredients - such
as mRNA, PEG and nanolipid particles - investigations have
discovered things in the shots that aren't indicated by the
One such ingredient is
graphene oxide, which can be seen under an electron microscope, but
isn't on the list of ingredients.
Other unknown contaminants have
also been found.
What's more, while we know the shots contain "mRNA," we have no way
of knowing exactly what that mRNA is designed to do, or might
As noted by Marik, it's
been genetically altered, so it's not a direct copy of the mRNA
found in the SARS-CoV-2 virus, but aside from that, we cannot be
sure about its makeup.
Marik also points out the Pfizer data shows there are distinct
differences in side effects depending on the lot you get. So, all
lots are not the same.
This basically makes it
impossible to make definitive assertions about the ingredients, as
any given lot may or may not contain them.
The amount of any given
ingredient may also vary.
Is the COVID
Shot Safe and Effective?
When media and health officials say the shots are safe and
effective, what does that actually mean?
As noted by Kory,
"safe and effective"
is NOT a statement about a scientific conclusion.
They're "neither safe nor
effective," he says.
The "safe and effective" claim is simply propaganda and meets the
definition of false information, because the data "backing" the safe
and effective narrative completely ignore the adverse event data.
we have documents showing the
Department of Health and
Human Services paid $1 billion to
media companies to advertise the
We also have evidence that first-tier journals are rejecting
analyses of injuries.
So, they're very
selective about what they publish.
Direct-to-consumer prescription drug ads accounted for $6 billion in
spending alone in 2016, which amounted to 4.6 million ads, including
663,000 television commercials, mostly for high-cost biologics and
cancer immunotherapies. 3
It may be close to $10 billion now as that
statistic is 6 years old. We know it is at LEAST $7
billion as the government kicked in $1 billion for COVID propaganda.
Public health agencies have also been very selective about the data
they publish in order to protect the narrative.
Health agencies in
Scotland and the U.S., for example, suddenly stopped publishing data
when the trend turned against the COVID shots and ineffectiveness
and harms were becoming apparent.
Still, VAERS' data reveal these jabs have caused,
more harm in 18
months than all other vaccines on the market, combined, over the
past three decades...

Drug Administration were sued and forced to release them - also show
they were unsafe and associated with an increased risk for death
from the start, and,
both Pfizer and
the FDA knew it...
According to Marik,
Moderna and Pfizer also manipulated their
efficacy data to make the shots appear far better than they actually
Recalculations have found
the initial efficacy was actually more like 12%, not 95% as claimed,
Not only did the shots fail to live up to their initial claims of
effectiveness, but we're now finding they even have negative
As explained by Kory,
negative efficacy means that if you have received the shot and are
exposed to COVID, you are more likely to get sick, not less likely,
compared to someone who is unvaccinated.
According to Kory, negative efficacy is demonstrated in several
different data sources, including Walgreens, which created its own
COVID tracker database for patients getting their tests and shots at
Its data show COVID-jabbed
individuals are testing positive for COVID at far higher rates than
the unjabbed, and those who got their last shot five months or more
ago have the highest risk.
As you can see in the screenshot from Walgreens' COVID-19 tracker
below, during the week of May 31 through June 6, 2022, 24.4% of
unvaccinated individuals who got tested for COVID got a positive
Of those who had gotten
just one COVID shot, the positivity rate was 31.6%.
Of those who received two doses five months or more ago, 34.3%
Of those who received a third dose five months
or more ago, the positive rate was 38.5%.
"I'm very, very
concerned for those who have been vaccinated and boosted," Kory
Data from the U.K. Health Security Agency also show that the boosted

the unvaccinated, and this is true for all age groups except
children under 18. 5,6
They're also at greater
risk of repeated COVID infections.
Do the COVID Shots
What about "vaccine shedding"?
Marik admits to being
extremely doubtful about the idea of spike protein shedding when he
first heard about it, but has since changed his mind.
He's now convinced that
it does happen, even though we do not yet fully understand the
mechanism behind it.
He cites a study that looked at unvaccinated children of parents who
had received the injections.
The parents all had an
antibody against the spike protein in their noses, and surprisingly,
a large percentage of the unvaccinated children did as well.
"So, somehow, the
antibody is getting from the parent to the child," he says.
Another concept that
might explain it is that of exosomes.
Exosomes are lipid
particles that circulate in your blood. They're also found in the
nose and lungs.
If you've received the
COVID jab, you're going to have circulating exosomes with spike
protein on them, so it's not inconceivable that you might spread
these exosomes via nasal discharge or even just through breathing.
"You could exhale
these exosomes," Marik says, "which are then inhaled [by
Kory also points out that
in the Pfizer trial, they included a,
Anyone in the same
household as someone who had received the shot was excluded from the
trial, which suggests they may have been concerned about some sort
of transfer or shedding.
he has also encountered many unvaccinated patients,
primarily women, who report severe disruptions to their menstrual
cycles after coming into close contact (although not necessarily
intimate contact) with someone who had recently received the jab.
Avalanche of Rare Diseases
Regardless of where the spike protein comes from - the virus itself,
the shot or close contact shedding - it's clear it can have
wide-ranging adverse effects.
The jab itself, however,
is the most problematic, as your body is continuously producing this
toxic protein, and we still don't know if that production ever shuts
As previously predicted, we're now starting to see a rapid rise in a
number of conditions, including previously very rare ones.

Not surprisingly, he's now accused
of misdiagnosing two patients with cancers they never had in order
to support a false claim. 8

defense against all disease, including cancer.
Marik also points out that the spike protein is "profoundly toxic"
in and of itself as well, and interferes with cancer suppressing
"So, there's no doubt
that the spike protein causes an increase in the risk of
cancer," he says.
"The problem is, what
do you do about it? How do you get rid of the spike?"
to Eliminate Spike Protein
Marik and Kory believe there may be ways to boost the immune system
to allow it to degrade and eventually remove the spike from your
One of the strategies
they recommend for this is TRE (time restricted easting), which
stimulates autophagy, a natural cleaning process that eliminates
damaged, misfolded and toxic proteins.
In many ways Marik is a fairly rigid conventional physician who is
simply unaware of many effective therapies natural physicians use.
One major omission he is
unaware of is sauna therapy.
This is especially true
when combined with TRE, as it will radically increase autophagy and
heat shock proteins which will address the prion like diseases
recently reported with COVID jabs and as predicted last year by MIT
research scientist Stephanie Seneff.
Infrared saunas are clearly the best saunas out there as I detail in
my epic article on sauna earlier this year. One of the primary
reasons is the increase in mitochondrial melatonin.
Ivermectin also binds to the spike protein, thereby facilitating its

protein in the first place.

treatment will lower your spike protein load, thereby reducing your
risk of long-COVID.
Kory stresses that, at present, they still do not know the exact
correct dose for ivermectin. When prescribed for long-COVID and
vaccine injury, he monitors the patient and adjusts the dosage based
on individual response.
That said, he typically

remarkably robust safety profile. We now also have a large-scale
Brazilian study in which patients received ivermectin for four days
every month for six months.
Curiously, not only was
COVID incidence dramatically reduced, but kidney and liver function
actually improved with this treatment. Marik also dismisses claims
that ivermectin can be harmful to your liver, saying it's actually
used to treat fatty liver disease.

safety signal... with long-term use," Kory says.

Injury Protocol - First Line Therapies
The full first line protocol for vaccine injury is as follows.
Keep in mind, however,
that the treatment must be individualized to the symptoms of each
patient. As explained by Marik, the patient's response will
determine future treatment and adjunct therapies.
These are not symptom
specific but rather listed in order of importance: 10
Eating or periodic daily fasts.
Fasting has a profound effect on
promoting immune system homeostasis, partly by stimulating the
removal of damaged cells and mitochondria and clearing misfolded
and foreign proteins.
Intermittent fasting likely has an
important role in promoting the breakdown and elimination of the

Ivermectin has potent
anti-inflammatory properties. It also binds to the spike
protein, aiding in the elimination by the host. It is likely
that ivermectin and intermittent fasting act synergistically
to rid the body of the spike protein.
Ivermectin is best taken with or just following a meal for
greater absorption. A trial of ivermectin should be
considered as first line therapy. It appears that patients
can be grouped into two categories:

HCQ is a potent immunomodulating agent, and is considered the
drug of choice for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), where it
has been demonstrated to reduce mortality from this disease.
Thus, in patients with positive autoantibodies or where
autoimmunity is suspected to be a prominent underlying
mechanism, HCQ should be considered earlier.
Further, it should be noted that SLE and post-vaccine syndrome
have many features in common. HCQ is safe in pregnancy; indeed,
this drug has been used to treat preeclampsia.
