– ‘THE MEDICINE CABINET” Questions from “Joey Pals”.
1. Does Ivermectin make suffering from COVID worse or better?. (Neither. Side effects of Ivermectin are worse than the benefits.)
2. There is a new study that says 3 cups of coffee a day is best for your heath? You will live longer, less likely to have a stroke, make it at home w/ no sugar and are less likely to have heart issues? (Coffee does have a lot of benefits against inflammation. But no data to support it will prevent COVID.)
3. I was vaccinated and boosted back in Oct. and now am suffering from Vertigo.  I believe it’s from the vaccine. (Vaccine can cause auto-antibodies to form in the inner ear. A lot of the side-effects are durable and delayed.)
– HOLD THE DATE for “Go-Red Luncheon” on April 7 Gala @ Mission Hills.
