Oregondissenter, the author of a blog called Dissenters and Skeptics of Oregon, thinks he may have discovered a ‘cheap and effective treatment’ for COVID-19.
In nutshell, Oregondissenter says that the COVID-19 virus kills by causing massive blood clots. It does so by accessing ACE-2 (Angiotensin Converting Enzyme 2) receptors in the body and then dramatically decreasing the body’s natural reserves of heparin. ACE-2 receptors are found virtually everywhere in the body. Some blood pressure medicines work by inhibiting levels of ACE-2.
Heparin is a blood thinner, which works by preventing blood clots, and it has been used in surgical procedures on a widespread basis since the mid- to late 1930s.
The interesting thing is that the COVID-19 virus mistakes heparin for ACE-2 in its attempts to gain entry into the body’s cellular structure and replicate. But because heparin offers no entry mechanism, the virus has nowhere to go and dies. However, if the virus manages to access ACE-2 receptors and reduces natural heparin reserves, potentially fatal blood clots ensue.
Therefore, by increasing heparin levels in the body, severe cases of COVID-19 can be successfully treated and potentially, lives can be saved.
Oregondissenter also thinks that a better way of testing for coronavirus infections like COVID-19, or SARS-CoV-2, as it is formally known, is to measure levels of heparin binding proteins (HBP) in the blood. If the levels are elevated, and the patient is showing symptoms consistent with the symptoms of a SARS-CoV-2 infection, then this is diagnostic for the virus and likely a more accurate test.
Could this treatment regimen, along with blood tests that detect excess levels of HBPs in the blood, be the pandemic-ending knockout punches we’ve all been looking for?
