Dear Mr. President,
I hope this letter finds you in good health. I am writing to you about the state of our country regarding the current coronavirus crisis. I am worried about my family and all the citizens of our country. But I am not concerned because of Covid-19. I am afraid of the continuous overreaction to the pandemic by the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, and the team of health science advisors that surround and significantly influence your opinions. Ultimately, the presidential edicts you create.
I am a licensed chiropractic physician and have been practicing for over 33 years. Like my colleagues, I have had extensive education in both health and chiropractic sciences. I believe I am profoundly qualified to comment on the crisis.
I do not believe that Covid-19 is a severe threat to the citizens of our country. When looking at the virus exclusively from a statistical standpoint, it is minuscule compared to the reported annual case numbers of influenza and common cold infections. It’s hard for me to comprehend as a healthcare professional, why world and national health regulatory agencies and the team of health advisors surrounding you have overreacted to Covid-19.
Contrary to public belief, humans are not at war with bacterial and viral microbes. There are trillions of viruses in existence, and none threaten people with healthy functioning immune systems.
There are constant updates about the symptoms associated with Covid-19. I keep hearing about sore throats, runny noses, fever, sneezing, etc. Incidentally, these are the same symptoms that the common cold produces in people. And there’s a good reason for this. The coronavirus causes approximately 20 percent of common colds humans experience. Many varieties of coronaviruses don’t affect people because our immune systems render them harmless.
Because many people in the general population have encountered the coronavirus before, in common colds, there’s a good chance they will have antibodies or DNA remnants present from similar viruses. This is likely to trigger false-positive test results in most of the population for Covid-19.
I hear and read comments from your advisors about how Covid-19 affects everybody differently. They have stated how, in some people, the symptoms are very mild or not present. In others, the symptoms are severe. The coronavirus is not the problem. The problem concerns how healthy a person’s immune system is working. Until humans can grasp this concept, they’ll be running away from germs forever, looking for face masks, hand sanitizers, and hazmat suits.
Governments worldwide have allowed economies to crash and burn because of a common cold virus. The world has overreacted to an illness that in 99 percent of the population will never trigger one symptom.
In a tiny portion of the community, a coronavirus might cause a few sniffles. In a smaller percentage of the population, people might experience a slight fever and congestion.
Temperature is the body’s natural, healthy response to destroy the virus.
Congestion is used by the body to sequester the viral invader from other parts of our anatomy that might be harmed from the infection.
In the smallest percentage of the population, severely immunocompromised patients, because of age, being overmedicated by suppressive drugs, and other factors will develop bronchitis and pneumonia that could lead to death. This is the way it has always been. It’s why millions of people die every year from the common cold, and why billions of others are never affected.
The answer to making our nation’s population stronger and healthier is to strengthen human immunity. This goal cannot be accomplished by filling people with vaccines and antiviral medications designed to suppress human physiology.
Mr. President, Covid-19 is not a severe health threat to the American people. The overreaction to the pandemic, however, could have disastrous effects on the United States economically speaking. I implore you to take control and be the leader you have been elected to be.
You must tell your health advisors, the CDC, and the WHO to take a backseat in managing the health crisis. You need to act quickly and without hesitation. You need to reopen the country for business as usual. Any potential damage the coronavirus may bring to American citizens pales in comparison to the long-term economic loss the nation will incur.
John L. Reizer, D.C.
