A New Paradigm for Severe COVID
This new model I developed explains how the depletion of arginine and tryptophan and the sequestration of cysteine leads to T cell suppression in severe COVID and may reflect the rapid onset of a somewhat cancer-reminiscent state where vitamins A and D and other myeloid differentiation factors run out.

Vitamins A and D should be properly balanced with each other, and with vitamins E and K. My COVID-specific recommendations for this balance are in the COVID Guide, and recommendations for balancing them in various different contexts are included in the Vitamins and Minerals 101 Cliff Notes, both of which are freely available to paid Substack subscribers.
These also contain general (Cliff Notes) or COVID-specific (COVID Guide) information for managing all the other nutrients mentioned. I will be updating the COVID guide next time to include tryptophan and N-acetylcysteine whenever arginine is used, but other than that this new paradigm does not alter the protocol. It does, however, move much more emphasis to A and D, and bring A onto much more equal footing with D.

Paid Subscriptions, Coming Guides, the Book My current plan is to wrap up a vaccine side effect protocol and my general work on the vaccines into a COVID Vaccine Guide that will be free to those who have pre-ordered my book, Masterpass members, and paid Substack subscribers. I will then do one final update to the COVID guide, also free to everyone I just mentioned. Paid Substack subscribers and Masterpass members will also have access to all paid-only Substack posts, which are the posts that feed into the creation of the vaccine side effect protocol. Most of these will be available for 48 hours to everyone. You can become a paid Substack subscriber here, which earns you 50% off the fee on Masterpass membership if you choose to join. The book can be pre-ordered here. As soon as these two guides are finished I will return full-time to finishing the book and will send everyone who pre-ordered an ETA as soon as I am ready.
