Hope, Truth, and Speaking Up When Things Aren’t Right

Hope, Truth, and Speaking Up When Things Aren’t Right

If there is anything we can all agree on, it’s that the past few years have been a time of confusion, fear, frustration, sadness, and many, many questions. The pandemic changed how we live and even how we view life. We may have lost friends and colleagues due to differing beliefs, but hopefully, we’ve also made new friends as we navigated our journey through these muddy waters.

From the beginning of my journey, I knew something wasn’t right. The fear that was generated and used to push people toward specific decisions and lifestyles caused injury and, in some cases, even death. That may seem like a strong statement, but it has been my experience.

As a therapist, I have worked with many people during the pandemic, and now, post-pandemic. I have met with people who suffered from the virus and those who continue to struggle with “long COVID” or “long haulers.” I have also worked with people who are vaccine injured. These people struggle to manage life and their symptoms, often told that nothing can be done for them.

Frankly, this is just wrong. The stories I’ve heard of loved ones whose family members were alone in the hospital as they passed away, family members denied the right to be with and support their family members and say goodbye, and of course, those who were told “there is no treatment” when they were diagnosed with COVID-19, are tragic.

We know and have known from the beginning that there were many things we could do (not the vaccine) to prevent getting the virus, diminish the symptoms if we did get the virus, and treat the virus if we were infected. Much of this information, however, was kept from us.

The Role of FLCCC
I have been blessed to be aware of and be a part of the FLCCC (Front Line COVID Critical Care) community since the early days of the pandemic. This group comprises many incredible doctors who were treating their patients with repurposed drugs until they were told they could no longer do so. Their response was to leave those jobs and form this community so they could continue to save lives outside of the confines of Western medical hospitals.

Many of these doctors are world-renowned leaders, and they were targeted, persecuted, and falsely accused of harming people when they had statistical proof that their extremely safe protocols were saving lives (visit FLCCC.net to learn more about these protocols). Two of these amazing doctors are Dr. Pierre Kory, MD, and Dr. Paul Marik, MD. These two men have become heroes of mine, and I had the pleasure of meeting and learning from them recently at the FLCCC Conference in Fort Worth, Texas.

Over 400 of us, a mix of doctors, naturopathic doctors, mental health doctors, therapists, other healers, and people from several other professions, gathered to learn and share information. Many who have been affected by the COVID-19 virus, have been vaccine injured, or were treated by these doctors personally or following their COVID protocol gathered to learn about the effects of the spike protein on every aspect of our lives. (The impact of the spike protein is a fascinating topic I will discuss in a future article here, on my website, and on my podcast, which is in the works.)

An important thing to remember is that whether you have had COVID-19, have received any of the COVID-19 “vaccinations,” or have been around people who have, you may have the spike protein in your system. This virus, and, more specifically, the spike protein, has crossed over into every part of our body and is having adverse effects on every system of our bodies. I am learning more about how it has affected peoples’ neurological systems and gut biomes, as well as how it is significantly impacting mental health.

There is hope. There is treatment (and I don’t mean the dangerous drugs hospitals use that are often causing more harm). There are many doctors out there who are willing and able to help. Obtaining the repurposed drugs shown from the beginning to treat COVID-19 effectively isn’t always easy since pharmacies have been discouraged or forbidden from carrying them. They’re out there, but it takes some legwork to find them.

Most therapists are overloaded with clients and requests for therapy, and I don’t see that letting up any time soon. Anxiety, depression, and suicide, as well as the stressors of fear, isolation, disconnection, and worry, are off the charts. But we know that a healthy lifestyle, sunshine, a healthy diet, connection with others, meditation, prayer, exercise, and, of course, breathwork, are a few of the many ways we can help ourselves.

You are not alone. Reach out for more info or visit my website for articles about the FLCCC.

We are in this together—there is hope!
