New Book Dissects Coronavirus: Maybe We've Got It All Wrong
(NewsUSA) - When it comes to the Coronavirus Pandemic, Paul Willette quotes from an inspirational Rudyard Kipling poem: "If you can keep your head, when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you. If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, but make allowance for their doubting too."
One might interpret those words as a plea to humanity to keep cool and ride the course of these unprecedented times - this too shall pass.
Not Paul Willette. An MD for 26 years, he has now authored "GPS: Global Pandemic Solutions: Directions for a Healthier Immunity against Coronavirus, " which advances the "10th opinion" theory that we've got it all wrong.
"Shutting down businesses and economies worldwide, overvaluing the importance of vaccines and ventilators, and increased testing for the virus in healthy people are fundamentally wrong," claims Willette.
"In fact, there is little proof they accomplished anything. In some instances, they made things worse. For example, the highest SARS-CoV-2 positive testing rate came from the stay-at-home self-quarantining group."
"Do we have a pandemic?" asks Willette. "You cannot test for a virus without distinguishing between colonization versus infection (disease). Pandemics are spread of disease between one person and another within a population. Increased viral testing is not a pandemic."
Current testing, argues Willette, only identifies the presence or absence of the Coronavirus, but the premise that a positive test for Coronavirus represents infection is flawed. Willette believes a case of the Coronavirus should be "counted" only when the virus has multiplied in sufficient quantities to cause severe sickness. Furthermore, correlation of positive Coronavirus testing is not causation of Covid-19 death.
Willette's company, Global Health Science Solutions LLC, has been over 30 years in the making. The starting point is medical school, residency and fellowship training. But what makes it different, according to Willette, is the pursuit of solutions incorporating nutrition, biochemistry and cell biology. Visit baisavhealth.com.
While much of Willette's narrative is quashing commonly accepted beliefs about the Coronavirus, he also provides a list of solutions and recommendations for healthy living. Willette says a broader understanding of all living things provides insight into the Coronavirus and the importance of maintaining a healthy immune system. His book delivers great insights into this understanding, including solutions that answer questions such as: why do bats harbor deadly viruses, yet do not die from them? Willette argues the early intervention of steroids (such as Decadron) helps prevent damage to normal tissues, i.e. lung, as the initial general inflammatory response is blunted (similar to bats) until the adaptive immune system specifically targets just the virus.
"GPS: Global Pandemic Solutions: Directions for a Healthier Immunity Against the Coronavirus" is the beginning of a discussion not just about stamping out disease, but about redefining and improving health in order to move forward for a better future.
