Why does FLCCC suggest ivermectin for COVID-19?
Since ivermectin was discovered and developed over 40 years ago, it has demonstrated an ability to make historic impacts on global health. It led to the eradication of a “pandemic” of parasitic diseases across multiple continents. These significant impacts earned the developers of ivermectin the 2015 Nobel Prize in Medicine.
More recently, profound antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties have been identified. Studies show that one of ivermectin’s several antiviral properties is that it strongly binds to the spike protein, helping to keep the SARS-CoV2 virus from entering the cell. These effects, along with its multiple abilities to control inflammation, explain the positive trial results already reported.
Ivermectin is most effective as part of a treatment protocol that includes other FDA-approved medications and supplements backed by clinical and observational evidence.
