I work in HC and am seeing an absurd amount of calcium in patients arteries. Yes they are old but I’ve been doing this for 15yrs… it’s obscene. What your saying could correlate.

this research is rather important also, because there is a huge misinformation out there.

Walter. I treat many people with keto like diet interventions. Generally these people do not get hypoglycemic. In fact they usually have fasting glucose levels in the 90s, but after eating rarely go above 120. So their glucose range is smaller and insulin levels drop.

How does this mesh with the top part of your post about hypoglycemic ketosis?

very interesting!

perhaps you might take a look at the supplement Berberine, known to lower glucose and good for cardiac health, and see if there might be usefulness as a anti-covid or covid recovery strategy supplement 🤔

Walter... IMO, this is significant and comports with what we are seeing in the real world! You are doing great work! Thank you for your on-going research!

A zero carb, ketogenic, carnivore diet is considered extremely dangerous by most mainstream dieticians. However, as seems par for the course these days, anything promoted by the mainstream must be treated at a minimum with suspicion, but maybe even consideration that the exact opposite is true.

Anecdotal- my daughter has a rare immune disregulating syndrome. She ALSO has hypoglycemia and I keep her on a keto diet for the most part.

She SAILED through Covid this past august. I was sure if she got it the mucus would get her really sick (as she suffers with a lot of mucus already)

One day of a lot of stomach troubles, an extra day under the weather. Then fine.

This is so interesting. Thank you, Walter, as always.

Probably not exactly relevant, but you've reminded me of something very frightening that happened to me on holiday in Cornwall last week. At home I often fast, sometimes for 2 or 3 days and rarely eat anything sugary or too processed (like pasta) and I don't even eat rice, because I prefer cauliflower rice. If I have something sweeter, it'll be a couple of spoons of ice-cream, and very rarely. I hadn't drunk a drop of alcohol for 6 weeks either.

One night on hols, I had a 3-course gourmet meal. It was vegetarian (I often order veg dishes) so not much protein, and I had a huge dessert of treacle tart with ice-cream. Then, two alcoholic drinks. I felt fine, went to bed at midnight.

Woke at 2am with heart palpitations. Not TOO bad, but very unusual for me these days (10 years ago it happened regularly). My heart gradually sped up until it was beating at 130bpm! My usual is around 52 to 56 (I'm a cyclist). It would not go back to normal. I sat, trying to calm down, doing calming breathing. It didn't work. I was terrified.

Eventually, after about 30mins it slowed down to 90bpm. I was very shaken and I know it was the sugar and the alcohol. I'm a fit and healthy person but I thought I actually might die. Never again. It's back to my usual diet, which I enjoy and lets me feel good and doesn't utterly terrorise me in the night. Or kill me if I catch covid!

For anyone who thinks low carb or Keto is going to be difficult, let me tell you from personal experience, if you make some immediate simple changes then small changes over time it just becomes natural. I felt better within two weeks and it's just gotten better and better, which also makes food choices even simpler. While I was trying to figure out what was going on with Covid early on, I was diagnosed full blown Type II diabetes with some terrible numbers. So I started down the path that is our food pyramid and the recommendations we've grown up with. The lies have been so bad, I'm not sure Fauci is in the running to reach the damage Ancel Keys has caused with his faulty cholesterol / saturated fat theories. (Fauci has an outside chance though.) Two years on, my blood markers / pressure are totally normal, tons of weight lost and changes to energy levels are profound, so much so, that my young adult children have also adopted a low carb lifestyle. For anyone interested, there are some good YouTube channels I found helpful: Low Carb Down Under, the Beat Diabetes Channel, Dr. Berg and Dr. Ekberg. If you haven't previously and decide to look into the science, just know you're about to enter a deep rabbit hole.

Thank you, Walter...the more I learn about the human body at this level; the more I am in awe of the biochemistry/biophysics and work-arounds of potentialities toward restoring homeostasis. Since epithelial tissue is now found capable of creating catecholamines, posture (recumbency) is correlated, and Calcium in the vascular system is elevated; I am wondering about work-arounds that our minds can hypothesize and try out. I am fascinated with the biophysics of fascia (the interstitium is now considered an organ, largest in the body) and it's relation to the Chinese Medicine Meridian/Qigong/Acupressure system. I try out many forms of fascial release that can be done to enhance the connective tissue (epithelium is one type of connective tissue). Standing Qigong and Tai Chi (many forms), The Roll Method, MELT Method, mini trampolining, Gua Sha, Tui Na: wondering about the biophysics , voltage gated channels, and biochemistry, say of the catecholamine production in epithelium. Grateful, I am, that your research sparked so much interest in others; perhaps more research in areas that truly help others will come out of this...

                                                      J. C Couey Video                                       

     One half of the brilliant Walter Chesnut./JC Couey Duo -J C Couey elaborates upon their recent discussion.                                                         



     J C Couey discusses the development and significance of the fabrication and uniformity of INFECTIOUS CLONES   

 It is a long video.  For a most interesting segment, start at circa 2 hours:32 minutes. DANGERS: One explanation is that the spike protein is the toxin  But, if the spike protein is the toxin, more people will be sick, since a lot of people have this spike protein circulating in their bodies.  Of course, there is another possible explanation that it does not matter what kind of foreign protein that you express using  transfection, since the damage will always be centered around the endothelium and the endothelial damage through neutrophils that will inevitably lead to a cascade that will lead to thrombosis and death.  *J C Couey bids us to read Marc Giradot's intriguing, rather compelling Substack, in which he argues that the spike is not the toxin.  Rather, it is intravascular harm.  "Transfecting even diffusely the epithelium."

Wow! This is absolutely brilliant! Thank you so very much, dear Walter! Now we have something clear to look for, and some thing to find a way to reduce. You have knocked it out of the park!

Are you saying a Ketogenic Diet (mostly ruminant meat) is “bad” when trying to heal/detox/treat SPED or Vaccine induced SPED?

This study found that ketogenic diets increase CRP/inflammation. 🤔
