From our review of the literature, it is clear that enhancing the ventilation, whether through INCREASING the VENTILATION RATE or MODIFYING the AIRFLOW pattern is an effective way to REDUCE AIRBORNE VIRAL INFECTION risk.>

If mechanical ventilation is not available or is insufficient, NATURAL VENTILATION through opening windows and doors should be utilized.

-COVID-19 is a blood and blood vessel disease.
-Current treatment protocols are actively harmful to patients
-Early treatment interventions have been suppressed in favor of vaccines and expensive patented drugs
- Natural immunity confers protection against all of the virus’s proteins, and not just one.
-Vaccines will do more harm than good.

According to the Office for National Statistics, since July 2 there have been 9,619 EXCESS DEATHS in England and Wales, of which 48% were NOT CAUSED by Covid-19.

🏍️ Lymphozyten Laufen Amok 🏍️

Prof. Burkhardt and Prof. Lang summarized the consequences of the injections as a “lymphocyte madness crisis” (Lymphozyten-Amok)
The main factors of this lymphocyte madness that they observed were these:

autoimmune disease. Excessive production of LYMPHOCTYES. Appearance of LYMPH NODES IN ORGANS where they SHOULD NOT BE, unless they are destructive (in the liver, lungs, uterus, thyroid gland, salivary glands etc.)
And also, a “DESTOCKING” (Entspeicherung) of the lymphatic organs>
which decreases the external immune capacities.

Doctors think gallstones may result when:

Your bile contains too much bilirubin. Bilirubin is a chemical that's produced when your body BREAKS DOWN RED BLOOD CELLS. Certain conditions cause your liver to make too much bilirubin...i.e.certain blood disorders.
