I recently saw an interview with Dr. Zelenko where he was talking about his experiences treating Chinese Wuhan Covid patients. I’ve lost track of where it was. On Rumble I think. In any case, he’s still treating patients with success.
For those who don’t know, he was one of the first M.D.s to come face to face with many Covid cases. He is in the Orthodox Jewish Community in New York and they were hard hit early on. He was one of the first Doctors to work out something that helped. It was HydroxyChloroQuine with Zinc and Vitamin D. This was even before Trump mentioned it.
I’ve seen several videos of him, over the last year+, talking about what worked and what didn’t and what level of success he was having. Long before it became a Democrat (murder?) Talking Point to Diss HCQ and long before the GEBs of Silly Con Valley deemed HCQ a Social Media Death Sentence. (Leaving me to wonder when Zuckerberg & Bezos & Dorsey & et. al. got their M.D. degrees…/snark;)
Whatever… That part is a bit ancient history now.
What got me perking up to listen closer (but not enough to bookmark the video…) was Dr. Zelenko said ~”Then New York forbid me to write prescriptions for HCQ”… So he had to find another way. Knowing it worked as a Zinc Ionophore, he went looking for another. Found Quercetin, and that it was OTC (Over The Counter) as a dietary supplement. So he tried it with zinc. Said it worked, so he continued to use it.
So, for anyone wondering, he’s also bottled up the “stack” of “supplements” he was giving patients as a single capsule. IMHO price is “way high”, but OTOH, it’s Kosher and undoubtedly made to high standards here in the USA under the watchful eye of an M.D. who cares. Almost $1 / capsule and 2 x day.
Here’s his web site and the link for the product:
$55 for 60 capsules. I suspect you can find it a lot cheaper as a DIY “stack” of ingredients. OTOH, it’s convenient and he is likely paying a fortune for small batch, Kosher inspection, and legal maneuvering to bypass all the Anti-Trumper Idiots trying to make everything worse.
As you can not make medical claims for dietary supplements (yeah, you can NOT say Vit. C cures scurvy… go figure…) the bottle just says “Dietary Supplement”. It’s a BYOB thing (Bring Your Own Brain…)
What is likely most useful for folks is that the mandated label says how much and how often. “Serving size” is 2 capsules. Each capsule contains:
Vitamin C - 800 mg Vitamin D - 5000 IU or 125 mcg Zinc - 30 mg Quercetin - 500 mg (95% strength)
So for anyone looking to “roll your own” that gives a good idea of dose level used by an M.D. with success. I’d likely just go with 2 Grams Vit C daily, 10,000 IU D3 daily, and 60 mg Zinc or whatever was close, plus one Gram of Quercetin daily.
I’ve not bought any Quercetin, so no idea how expensive it is, but the rest is cheap.
The “About Dr. Zelenko” box says:
About Dr. Vladimir Zelenko
Dr. Zelenko graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. degree with high honors in Chemistry from Hofstra University. After receiving an academic scholarship to attend S.U.N.Y. at Buffalo School of Medicine, he earned his M.D. degree in May 2000. Dr. Zelenko completed his family medicine residency at South Nassau Communities Hospital in Oceanside, N.Y. in May 2004. Since then, Dr. Zelenko has practiced family medicine in New York’s Hudson Valley. He has been described by his patients as a family member to thousands of families, and is a medical adviser to the volunteer ambulance corps in Kiryas Joel, New York.
Dr. Zelenko is an observant orthodox Jew, married with 8 children, and has authored two books called Metamorphosis and Essence to Essence.
In March 2020, Dr. Zelenko’s team was one of the first in the country to successfully treat thousands of Covid-19 patients in the prehospital setting. Dr. Zelenko developed his now famous “Zelenko Protocol,” which has saved countless lives worldwide, while he was fighting recurrent and metastatic sarcoma, had open heart surgery, and aggressive chemotherapy. He has also persevered against unrelenting defamation of character from the media, and threats against his person.
COVID-19 Research Studies
Dr. Vladimir Zelenko has been cited in over 10 COVID-19 research studies due to his own research done on the subject. He also has conducted several of his own studies and is driven to discover the facts on the subject.
He is determined to be at the forefront of the fight against this virus and has a track record supporting that already.
Based on my front-line experience, it is essential to start treatment against Covid-19 immediately upon clinical diagnosis of the infection and not to wait for confirmatory testing. There is a very narrow window of opportunity to eliminate the virus before pulmonary complications begin. Delaying treatment is the essence of the problem. My treatment regime is attached and please know that as of today it has saved thousands of patients without serious complications or negative side effects. Hundreds of top doctors across the world have embraced prehospital treatment of Covid-19 in high risk patients.
As we’ve said many times before: It is best to use drugs that stop virus replication BEFORE the virus has replicated. Giving drugs like HCQ, Ivermectin, or supplements like Quercetin in late stage disease after the patient is hospitalized and when the virus has already replicated to maximum load is just asking to fail.
I’d been lazy / reluctant to go running after Quercetin, figuring it must not be very effective if it is an OTC supplement; but given that Dr. Zelenko was able to substitute it in for HCQ in his original protocol, I’m now much more willing to believe it is effective. So next run to the local health food store I’m looking it up ;-)
Looks like $16 for 50 “Vegan” 500 mg Quercetin capsules from Amazon / Whole Foods, so not expensive.
Feel free to put other Chinese Wuhan Covid discussion topics in comments on this thread too. It’s all one big topic… Even the political stuff as The Idiots In Charge have made Medicine a political topic with their bans and censorship and other stupidities.
