High altitude and amyloidosis exacerbation; Why Doxycycline works
June 21, 2022
Please note Doxycycline in the above graphic.
I ask all to please read the referenced personal account of amyloidosis. It will sound very familiar to all who have studied and experienced PASC.
I would like to start by quoting from the article:
“I tried to hike but couldn’t walk more than a short distance before I had to stop and rest. I had a problem climbing one flight of stairs and exercise was out of the question.”
Also, please note that this individual “was always healthy, ate well, exercised, and had a lot of energy. So when I was diagnosed with amyloidosis and myeloma, people asked, “How can this happen to you when you have done everything right?”
This case is presented as an example (it is pre-pandemic) of a diagnosis that was once rare, but is now fast becoming very common. The Spike Protein, I believe, has caused what we will discover in the next quoted paragraph:
“I had imagined getting better as I got to a lower altitude. That didn’t work and the day after I got home, I wound up in the local emergency room where I was diagnosed with severe congestive heart failure due to PROLONGED ALTITUDE SICKNESS. I had an ultrasound and the next day I saw a young cardiologist that had studied at the University of Michigan under the same doctor that had done my ablation almost 15 years earlier. He suggested I go to Vanderbilt to see a thoracic surgeon about the possibility of a valve replacement. He noted on my ultrasound, “possible infiltrative disease.”
And that is the key in all of this. POSSIBLE INFILTRATIVE DISEASE.
In all things Spike Protein related, I believe it is CERTAIN INFILTRATIVE DISEASE.
They thought she may have needed a heart valve. Or that her arteries were clogged. However, HER ARTERIES WERE GOOD!
Then, came the devastating news: “On Friday of the same week the cardiologist called me and told me my arteries were good but they had confirmed amyloid in my heart.”
And now to the case of pilots. Patients with amyloid angiopathy are at risk of lobar hemorrhage, therefore patients with such conditions are ADVISED TO AVOID ALTITUDE. A moderate or severe disability post-stroke measured with the Rankin scale (>2) is a contraindication to visit a wild environment. It is advisable to encourage patients with previous stroke (but this applies to most neurological patients) to avoid trekking alone.
And what of PASC? Where does all this lead?
"The first symptom for many patients with cardiac amyloidosis is shortness of breath," says Dr. Jignesh Patel, director of the Cardiac Amyloidosis Program.
That's because as amyloid proteins (SPIKE PROTEINS) take up space in the wall of the heart, the heart's ability to fill up with blood between heartbeats becomes more difficult, leading to breathlessness.
LET ME BE VERY CLEAR ABOUT SOMETHING. WE ARE NOT JUST TALKING ABOUT PROTEINS TAKING UP SPACE IN THE WALL OF THE HEART! WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SPIKE PROTEIN TAKING UP SPACE IN! ALL! ORGANS! AND! TISSUES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As Dr. Kevin McCairn so astutely observed: We notice this first in the brain.
Tissue being rendered non-functioning in the kidney, liver, lungs or any other tissue does not change WHO WE ARE or HOW WE FEEL. Of course, tissue being rendered non-functioning in the heart can have even more immediate manifestations.
As a tragic postlude to this sobering post, I wish to share my deep sorrow for Tom Mann:
Stereo Kicks star Tom Mann 'broken' as fiancee Danielle dies on wedding day
Danielle Hampson, a PR executive and dancer with the likes of Take That and Little Mix, died on Saturday, he said.
"What was supposed to be the happiest day of our lives ended in irreversible heartbreak," wrote Mann, whose boy band Stereo Kicks were on the show in 2014.
His 34-year-old partner's cause of death has not been revealed.
