Ivermectin is proving to be a formidable alternative treatment for COVID-19. No wonder the FDA, the CDC, Dr. Anthony Fauci and the Biden administration continue to push false information about the drug.

In reference to using ivermectin, in an interview with CNN, Fauci said, “Don’t do it. There’s no evidence whatsoever that it works and it could potentially have toxicity… with people who have gone to position control centers because they’ve taken the drug at a ridiculous dose and wind up getting sick. There’s no clinical evidence that indicates that this works.”

Biden is now attempting to illegally force COVID-19 shots without taking into consideration the benefits of current alternatives, like ivermectin, that many Americans would rather take versus being forced to take a shot mandated by the government.

They want you to believe that ivermectin can only be used for its original purpose which is the treatment of parasitic worms. There are many drugs on the market that were created for one purpose in mind and over time it was discovered the drug had multiple purposes. One such drug is Finasteride. It is available in two different strengths and each has a specific intended purpose. The Finasteride 1 mg is sold as generic finasteride with a brand-name Propecia which is approved to treat hair loss. The Finasteride 5 mg has a very different use. It’s approved to treat an enlarged prostate (BPH) and is also sold as generic finasteride 5 mg with a brand-name Proscar.

There was a false story circulating on news outlets (The Guardian, Rolling Stone, The Hill and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow) and social media platform Twitter which allowed the fake news to go viral with zero fact checks that Oklahoma hospitals were filling up with people who overdosed on ivermectin. Dr. Jason McElyea at the center of this story has said he was misquoted and the story was wrong. The hospitals denied the false story, stating there were no ivermectin poison cases.

Dr. Ken Williams, Hair Surgeon, said in a U.S. News Health piece, “other drugs are approved by the FDA for one condition but used for others. This is known as “off-label” use and is ethical, legal and a common practice in medicine.”

If this is the case, then why is ivermectin been given a bad rap from the FDA, CDC, Fauci and the Biden administration.

Dr. Pierre Kory, a physician at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee appeared as a witness on December 8, 2020, before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, which held a hearing on the early outpatient treatment of COVID-19.

During this hearing Dr. Kory said, “All I ask is for the NIH to review our data that we’ve compiled of all of the emerging data – we have almost 30 studies. Everyone is reliably and reproducibly positive showing the dramatic impacts of ivermectin. Please, I’m just asking that they review our manuscript.”

He continued by saying he’s “not a random doctor” who is claiming to have a COVID-19 cure. Instead of trying to develop expensive new drugs, he and his colleagues have spent months focusing on existing, “repurposed” drugs, and ivermectin is proving to have a “miraculous impact.”

“And when I say miracle, I do not use that term lightly, and I don’t want to be sensationalized when I say that. That is a scientific recommendation based on mountains of data that has emerged in the last three months. When I am told…that we are touting things that are not FDA or NIH recommended, let me be clear. The NIH, their recommendation on ivermectin, which is to not use it outside of controlled trials, is from August 27th — we are now in December. This is three to four months later. Mountains of data have emerged from many centers and countries around the world, showing the miraculous effectiveness of ivermectin. It basically obliterates transmission of this virus. If you take it, you will not get sick,” said Dr. Kory.

The doctor group Rescue located in Puerto Plata, La Romana and Punta Cana treated at least 6,000 COVID-19 positive patients with excellent results using ivermectin. They began treating patients at the beginning of the pandemic.

Uttar Pradesh, the most populated state in India has averaged only 24 cases of COVID-19 with 0-2 deaths per day. The reason behind these numbers is last year they began dispensing ivermectin and encouraging people to take it early on and even for preventive purposes.

Mexico reported a casualty count of 230,000 due to the virus. They became desperate to find a cheaper treatment option. In December, they began to gradually roll out ivermectin. It took a few months, but their death rate is back to normal and even slightly lower.

The FLCCC Alliance came together during the time the pandemic was rapidly spreading from China and Europe to the United States in early 2020. Their outpatient treatment protocol centered around ivermectin which their physicians found to be effective for preventing as well as treating early and late phases of COVID-19. These are the same physicians that published their breakthroughs in real time on their nonprofit research group, Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance, website.

The evidence is indisputable that ivermectin is a positive alternative in preventing and treating the virus. Real-time meta-analysis of 937 studies globally showing early treatment options reveals the effectiveness of the drug against COVID-19. The American Journal of Therapeutics concludes that using the drug early may reduce the virus from becoming severe.  Research as early as June 2020, noted ivermectin is an FDA-approved drug and that in recent years has shown to have anti-viral activity against “broad range” viruses. Denying the efficacy of these methods only increases suffering and casualties.

The media is attempting to paint a picture in our minds that ivermectin is a “horse wormer” and isn’t for human consumption. There are in fact two different forms of ivermectin. One is for livestock and the other is for human beings. As for safety, over 4 billion doses have been given to human patients since 1998.

In 2015, the Nobel Committee for Physiology or Medicine, in its only award for treatments of infectious diseases for six decades prior, honored the discovery of ivermectin, a multifaceted drug deployed against some of the world’s most devastating tropical diseases. Since it came on the market, it has been used off-label for other diseases and conditions such as Systemic Lupus and Papulopustular Rosacea. In 2018, a patent was filed to treat certain autoimmune disorders.

The CDC has endorsed ivermectin for Afghan refugees. It’s not some obscure drug that is only used for livestock. This shows that they don’t think it is dangerous.

Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “The FDA, CDC, Fauci and Biden are deceiving the American people in support of Big Pharma. We need open and honest dialogue, not propaganda sponsored and directed by Big Pharma. The censorship and misinformation must end. ivermectin has been proven time and time again to be a viable option in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.”
