TWO of my relatives, hundreds of miles apart,  have e-mailed the rest of us that they personally know people who have administered an anti-worm medication, designed for COWS, to their families, in an attempt to prevent or treat COVID-19.

 

Look up IVERVECTIN

Well I guess they won't have any tape worms.

There is some research showing that invermectin may help (the link above doesn't work for me):

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1201971220325066

But I think I'll wait a) until I actually test positive and b) until it's been demonstrated in a few more people.

The link doesn't work for me.   

I've read a couple of articles about ivermectin killing Covid in vitro.  This article https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3043740/ says it's been used in humans since 1988, all for parasites as nearly as I can determine, but places it alongside aspirin and penicillin as  a "wonder drug."   

I first heard of it's possible use vs. Covid about a month ago.... from my daughter who got it from a friend of hers who is the wife of a mainstream M.D.  I guess that chain isn't quite rigorous enuff for "scientifically proven," but I don't automatically pooh-pooh it away either.

I've got a friend that swears up and down that the magnetic bracelets he wears cured his back pain. He's not dumb and he's not a liar, he's a reasonably intelligent person that honestly believes that.

Don't believe everything you read on the internet, folks.

Taking Ivermectin wouldn't frighten me. It's ingested by humans around the world and yes, I have used it on livestock.
About 4 years ago I was working a trade show booth and the booth next to me was selling magnetic bracelets. In two days they made more money than I did.

Not sure if that's better or worse than the people that died drinking fish tank cleaner: chloroquine phosphate.

'Way back the sister of one of our neighbors was on the yocal trade show circuit flogging some sort of pen/wand/??? that emitted UV/black/??? light that would treat or do away with peoples' desire to smoke.... by shining it in the patient's ear. 

My wife and I used to joke with each other about Rose's "cure": 

Light "on" wand close to ear: "Desire to smoke still there?"

"Yes."

"Okay, Iemme see... just gently get it in a bit further..... still feel like having a cigarette?"

"Yes, I do."

"Lemme push a bit further ... maybe grind it around a little....  gonna give it up?"

"Well, I'd still like to light one up."

Under breath: "This one's a toughie... I'll grind it in there with a bit more oomph... how's that?

"Well the disire is decreasing a bit."

"Okay... [now this is the full Monty]....  [push / twist /grind / etc.]

"Ouch! Yikes!  Okay... I'll quit! I'll quit!!"

My optician friend insists that his ion bracelet does wonders for him also.  Then again, there are  millions who swear by homeopathy.  Placebos are great - sometimes.

Wasn't that only one person who died, and didn't the police investigate that one to make sure his wife didn't poison him?

It was a handful of deaths, more people just left ill for a day or two. Fortunately it didn't become a big fad.

A friend of mine had a big wax buildup in his ears. His wife knew a lady that Candled peoples ears.

He said it wasn't a bad experience but it didn't get any wax out! A hokey hippie cure! 

i think they used to use a hollow candle, I just looked it up & now they just stuff a normal candle in your ear!

Reminds me of the old joke of the guy that was putting his suppositories in the wrong end!

Is it true that folks who undergo an MRI tend to migrate northward?

Candling ears at least sort-of makes sense with the hollow candle. The concept is that the flame creates a draft, which induces negative pressure in the "candle tube" and that's supposed to suck the goop out of your ear. It doesn't actually work, obviously, but the concept makes sense. Doing it with a solid candle doesn't even make sense conceptually, what do they think is going on?

Solid candles work wonderfully well, if:
a) there's a power failure at night
b) it's your birthday.

It is  quite obvious that Ivervectin controls Covid-19. How many cows do you know with Covid-19 ?

This is great stuff I've never seen before, my wife spent all her summers here as her dad built a cottage on Longs lake and she was chums with the Clarke boys , one of whom grew up to run the general store. (Pete).
I don't know how I missed this, I love history like this, Thanks for posting.

Etobicoke: Ken Dryden - who had the good sense to play for the right team!

Our doc was at Royal York & Dundas, then at the Kingsway. Great fish & chips restaurant there.
