Healing the long-haulers

Reading time: 4 minutes

When Covid first struck, doctors around the world rushed to come up with a solution.

Chief among them were a number of doctors from major academic medical centers, who had some 200 years’ worth of combined experience in critical care medicine plus about 1,000 published papers in scientific journals. They called an emergency meeting after noticing that the vast majority of critically ill Covid patients given the standard treatment recommended by national and international health care organizations were dying.

They decided to form a working group to find a treatment protocol for Covid-19, particularly for patients going into intensive care units.

The group first approached Dr Paul Marik, professor of medicine and chief of the division of pulmonary and critical care medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Virginia, because of his expertise in successfully treating ICU patients with severe infections like bacterial sepsis. 

Dubbing themselves the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance, Marik and his colleagues met extensively, studied all the clinical and pathological data about Covid, and began discussions with a number of frontline intensive care unit experts working in some of the early outbreak areas, like China, Italy and New York.

To Marik and these other concerned doctors, Covid seemed to be behaving a bit like sepsis. They decided to tweak his treatment for sepsis by formulating the MATH+ treatment protocol, specifically for hospitalized patients, and launched it in March 2020.

The MATH part of MATH+ stands for intravenous Methylprednisolone (another steroid), high-dose intravenous Ascorbic acid, high-dose Thiamine and Heparin (to prevent blood clotting).

The “plus” stands for optional further interventions: melatonin, zinc, vitamin D3, a statin, famotidine (an H2 blocker used to treat indigestion or stomach ulcers) and intravenous magnesium.

Since those early days, they’ve added other supportive products and provided evidence from 93 studies and more than 133,000 patients supporting the central role of the antiviral ivermectin, which has been consistently disparaged by the medical establishment as little more than a “horse dewormer.”

Although the alliance created a website and published the MATH+ protocol in many languages in 2020, governments around the world have systematically ignored their treatment protocols, opting instead for an experimental vaccine that was rushed through without proper testing.

Nevertheless, the FLCCC took its knowledge straight to the public. The alliance boasts that with even the sickest patients given the MATH+ protocol, average hospital mortality falls to about 5 percent, compared with an average mortality of nearly 23 percent hospital patients in the US, Italy and China who were given the standard protocols during the height of the pandemic.

To date, the FLCCC has also quietly helped hundreds of doctors and millions of patients heal from Covid. 

Lately, the FLCCC has turned its attention to the fallout from Covid—both long Covid and Covid-19 vaccine damage. In their eyes, the cause and the symptoms are essentially the same: damage caused by the spike protein, causing a hyperactivated immune system (see Cover story, page 26).

Since 2022, Florida-based Dr Marivic Villa has witnessed a huge number of patients who have received three or four Covid vaccine doses but present similarly to those who are struggling with long Covid. 

 “My biggest observation is that the signs and symptoms profile and clinical presentation of long-haulers from moderate to severe natural Covid infection, and individuals vaccinated three to four times, are almost indistinguishable from one another,” Dr Villa said. 

And these days, most cases of long-haulers are those whose symptoms began after three or four doses of the vaccine. 

New York integrative specialist Dr Leo Galland finds that those who suffer from long Covid experience a big drop in immune system cells like T lymphocytes. They also have mitochondrial stress, auto-antibodies (indicating the body is attacking itself), mast cell activation (meaning the body is becoming more allergic), endothelitis (an inflammation of the cells that line the blood vessels) and much more. 

The FLCCC’s work focuses on restoring a damaged immune system, whether from the virus or the vaccine, by wiping out the spike protein.

Besides ivermectin, the FLCCC recommends a host of holistic support, including intermittent fasting (which helps to reset the immune system), supplements like vitamin C, vitamin D, N-acetyl cysteine, betaine, zinc, quercetin, magnesium, selenium and nattokinase—a supplement derived from natto, a fermented Japanese soybean product.

Other doctors recommend taking humic acid, a chemical derived from degrading organic matter (such as decayed plants), which helps with graphene oxide toxicity from the vaccine, as does Greska’s C-60, a supplement of carbon-60 molecules that helps to detox the body.

Dr Galland’s solution is a multipronged approach. It starts with a highly plant-based diet since a Johns Hopkins study showed that a 40 percent increase in plant consumption offered a 70 percent decrease in severe or moderate Covid illness.

He also advocates fermented foods and a load of supplements (vitamin D, curcumin, omega-3 fatty acids, N-acetyl cysteine, coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine, B vitamins, butyrate, reishi mushrooms and zinc, among others) to restore the body. You can find his protocol at 

Doctors like those in the FLCCC and Dr Galland are achieving miracles with long-haulers as well as with vaccine damage.

It’s a pity that the medical establishment still isn’t listening.
