The BLOCKHOUSE #3: HCQ vs. Homemade Quinine Tonic
Hydroxychloroquine vs Homemade Quinine Tonic
Recipe and information by Cynthia Arnett
Hydroxychloroquine is a synthetic derivative of a compound called quinine. Quinine is a naturally occurring compound in plants Both act as anti-malarial drugs. Malaria is an infection of the liver and red blood cells caused by microscopic parasites spread by mosquitos .
High sources of quinine come from the Cinchona Tree Bark and Grapefruit as well as other citrus fruit peels.
Cinchona Tree Bark can be purchased as a supplement.
The nutrition and health benefits of grapefruit truly make it a super fruit. Grapefruit is high in vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, iron, manganese, and potassium. It also is a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, and folic acid, and it is high in antioxidants.
Grapefruit peel can be boiled down to create a liquid form of quinine.
Grapefruit also contains a powerful bioflavonoid called “Naringin” giving the grapefruit its bitter flavor.
Naringin is a powerful antioxidant. Naringin helps prevent inflammation, supports the lungs and immune system
Grapefruit peels also contain Hesperidin, which is an antioxidant that acts as an anti-inflammatory
Benefits come from eating the entire fruit, including the peel raw (if you can handle the bitter flavor of the peel). The peels can be slowly cooked to release the quinine into a liquid.
How To Make: There is plenty of information online.
Take the peels of grapefruit (organic preferred), place in a nonmetal pan and cover peels with purified/filtered water. Bring to boil, tightly cover with a lid to prevent steam from escaping, then lower heat to a low simmer for 2-4 hrs. Do not remove the lid until fully cooled. You would lose some of the quinine in the steam. Put into a glass jar and refrigerate. Use in 2-3 days. Can freeze for future use. I plan to take 1 tablespoon every few hours in tea at the start of cold or flu symptoms. I currently have 6 pint jars frozen and ready to go should we get sick.
This should be used by people who feel comfortable with natural made tonics. If your belief is that a pill is better, then go that route. The tonic will be gentler, but dosing will be experimental. If you have no other option, then this hopefully will be available as your backup. You can get a RX for Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin through various online doctors/clinics. I would try America’s Frontline Doctors first. There are others if you search. GoodRX has coupons so check that out as well. Do this before you get sick so you can start treatment early when symptoms first appear.
PRECAUTION: Grapefruit can cause problems with certain medications; check with your doctor or pharmacist before going grapefruit wild. It affects calcium channel blockers, and statins (cholesterol lowering medication).
What Is Ivermectin? Save The Horses
By Cynthia Arnett
Ivermectin seems to be all over the news these days. Mainstream media is reporting people dying from self-administering this “horse medicine,” which was then proven to be an all-out lie. Some say it’s a miracle cure for Covid 19. I like facts, so I went hunting for answers.
What is it? Ivermectin is an orally bioavailable macrocyclic lactone, derived from Streptomyces avermitilis**, with antiparasitic and potential anti-viral activities. Upon administration, Ivermectin exerts its anthelmintic properties (medication that destroys parasitic worms), through binding and activating glutamate -gated chloride channels expressed on the parasite’s neurons and pharyngeal muscle cells. Literally, it chokes parasites to death. Some reports state that a secondary effect of Ivermectin is that it stops the spike protein from entering the cell. See: Ivermectin: an award-winning drug with expected antiviral activity against COVID-19 (nih.gov)
History: Ivermectin was originally introduced as a veterinary anti-parasitic drug and approved by the FDA for human use since 1996 It was discovered in 1975 and came into medical use in 1981. It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines. Over the last three decades public health officials have administered at least 1 billion human doses of Ivermectin in Africa and Latin America to combat parasitic disease.
Ivermectin is available as pills, injectable and topical paste formulations. It is available for both veterinary and human use. The FDA has warned people not to take the veterinary Ivermectin that can be purchased without a prescription. Humans need a prescription to purchase. The chemical make-up is the same for both humans and animals. Dosing is based on the weight of patients, whether veterinary or human. Manufacturing medications, for either human or veterinary use, requires strict manufacturing practices.
Administration of Ivermectin intended for veterinary use is a personal decision. Just make sure you are fully aware of the proper dose. There is information online regarding the recommended dose for humans, and how often to administer. Here are a couple of options for obtaining Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine.
