TL:DR Version See maps showing mean serum vitamin d levels in Indian states. Coronavirus infections and death rate among the infected and cumulative death rates. There is a wide variation in all of these metrics between states. Click on a state to see my report and comments. There is a correlation between infection/mortality and vitamin d levels but 2 states used other means to lower infections. I examine the other factors to make the link clearer. Widespread distribution of high dose vitamin d supplements, particularly to those in poor health would prevent infections and mortalities but doctors will never use a natural substance. Ivermectin is the next best thing. Corrupt public health officials are resisting its use and pushing a dangerous vaccine instead. Ayurvedic medication “Ayush 64” is the next best thing to ivermectin. India had it beat in by September 2020 with its traditional remedies for colds and flu. then blew it with the vaccine roll out starting in January 2021 which caused the “delta variant”.
Population of India 1.4 billion people. 36 states and Union Territories’s
Uttar Pradesh – 168 million, Maharashtra – 97 million. Bihar – 83 million. For comparison, US – 328 million
Death rate per thousand in India:
- 2019 7.3
- 2020 7.3
Prime Minister Modhi you have been had by the globalists and the WHO! There was never any need for the lockdown which caused such misery and especially not the vaccine roll out in 2021 which caused the so called “second wave”.
Uttar Pradesh – “The UP Miracle” Highly deficient vitamin d serum levels yet 2nd lowest infection rate out of 36 states and UT’s. UP was the only state where Ivercectin was distributed. This was done from the start.
Punjab – Mortality among infected: 1 in 32. Second highest in India. Is this the Sikh disaster?
Kerala – “The Kerala Miracle”. Super high infection rate. Super low mortality rate.
Bihar – “The Bihar Miracle”. Sufficient vitamin d serum levels = Lowest infection rate in India. 10th Lowest mortality rate among infected in India. No ventilators used. ECMO’s used instead. Globalist “ TheWire” is lying. Everything was properly recorded. I show you proof.
Madya Pradesh – “The MP miracle” Highly sufficient vitamin d serum d level. 3rd lowest infection rat in India
Rajasthan – “The Rajasthan ayurveda miracle” 4th lowest infection rate in India despite severely deficient serum vitamin d levels.
Mizoram – “The Mizoram miracle”. 94% tribal. 4th lowest infection rate in India. 3rd lowest death rate among infected.
Arunachal Pradesh – “The Arunachal Pradesh miracle”. 69% tribal. Covid hospital only in neighbouring state of Assam yet 4th lowest mortality rate among infected.
What started me off?
28 Indian states and 8 Union Territories in 2020 up to 9th March.
What got me interested was talking to my video editor Shahanil last year in locked down Maharashstra, one of the ostensibly hardest hit states.
I say ostensibly because I think the world has been driven into a hysterical panic by the global public health mafia. In the UK for example, excess deaths for 2020 are about double the rate of deaths and serious injuries from road traffic accidents. It may well turn out that a large proportion of those deaths were caused simply by people with serious conditions like cancer or heart attacks not being treated in hospital because of fear of coronavirus infection. No coronavirus deaths would have occurred if the correct treatment had been used. I hold the medical profession responsible for the deaths and the economic damage.
In September 2020 in India the coronavirus peak was over
In November of last year I looked at the WHO coronavirus dashboard out of concern for Shahanil to see how things were going in India. To my amazement I saw that cases and deaths had started to fall off a cliff in September and were rapidly dwindling to zero. I asked him what had caused this and he showed me a circular put out by the Union (central) government Ministry of Ayush telling Indians to make Kadha as a prophylactic and treatment for coronavirus. I blog and vlog about all things alternative medicine related so I was intrigued.
Ayurveda to the rescue!
It turns out that:
- a) the Ministry of Ayush is the ministry of Indian traditional medicine. It was one of the first things that Prime Minister Modhi set up when the BJP came to power in 2014. Ayush is short for Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy.
- b) Kadha is the traditional Indian, ayurvedic, Hindu recipe for colds and flu. It’s usually made with about 5 different herbs and spices. Boiling water is poured on them to make a tea. Shahanil’s Mum uses 12 different ingredients. I looked up studies on all the ingredients in her recipe and wow! Every one had potent anti viral properties. (See my report on the “Rajasthan miracle” where a super kadha with 60 ingredients was made by the state government and distributed by NGO’s and political parties.)
Raisins are anti viral!
Some of a good kadha’s ingredients (particularly tulsi), also have immune modulating properties, ideal for combatting cytokine storm which is the immune system overreaction which kills you. Did you know that raisins are anti-viral? There is a pukkha medical study which shows that they are. The next time you have a cold, eat a handful of raisins. All of the traditional ayurvedic ingredients and remedies for respiratory diseases have been studied in silico (computer modelling) and proven to work.
Tulsi and the Hindu daily ritual
Tulsi (holy basil) is the star. All Hindus grow this at home in their courtyard or garden or even in a pot indoors and eat a few leaves every day. Ayurveda is closely tied up with Hinduism and it’s hard to separate whether ingesting some leaves of tulsi is a religious observance or a health maintenance practice. The plant is said to be the earthly manifestation of the Goddess Shiva. (Look up the Hindu legends surrounding this on wikipedia and your head will start to spin!)
Chyawanprash – health pancacea
Another centuries old traditional ayurvedic recipe is Chyawanprash, a poly herbal jam. A lot of Indians take a spoonful of this in the morning, particularly in the winter. It’s a health panacea. Similar to the multi herbal theriac which for around 800 years, right up to the 19th century was taken by all Europeans who could afford it. If they fell ill they immediately suspected that the theriac they’d been sold was not the genuine article.
Some of the other ayurvedic remedies:
- Neem tea. Neem trees grow all over India. The tea can be made from the bark as well as the leaves. “In silico” computer simulations of molecular docking show that it has 25 compounds which inhibit coronavirus. In a small case study of 9 people with coronavirus symptoms given only neem tea, all of them became fully asymptomatic after only 2 days.
- Neem giloy. Giloy is a climber and it is often grown to climb on neem trees. It’s a potent herb in its own right but by feeding on neem it has the properties of neem as well as it’s own.
- Hot lemon. Another traditional India recipe for colds and flu. Shahanil in Pune, Maharashtra makes it by pouring hot water onto the squeezed lemon juice in a glass. My correspondent in the foothills of the Himalayas in Bihar state makes it in a metal beaker and pours boiling water onto it. This seems to be counterintuitive because surely the boiling water would kill the vitamin c content? But a study I found shows that heating the lemon increases the amount of quercetin which acts the same way as hydroxychloroquine. They are both zinc ionophores. That means they push zinc into the cells.
- Dried Ginger Powder. (“Shunthi Churna”) Used as a remedy for all kinds of ills. It’s mixed with honey for colds. If you are tempted to sneer and dismiss this as quackery I invite you to watch my youtube videos: “Healthiest Breakfast Ever” where I walk you through the studies showing the myriad therapeutic properties of both ginger and honey – with great synergy when they are taken together. Or read my blog article on the pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties of ginger. Far superior to non steroidal anti-inflammatories and no side effects! Only health benefits. Packets of Shunthi Churna were distributed by some states as a prophylactic and it was used as ayurvedic treatment in quarantine centers.
Sidha medicine in Tamil Nadu
In Tamil Nadu Sidha medicine is used rather than Ayurveda. The Sidha cousin of Kadha is Kabasura Kadineer. Unani medicine is used by muslims. It’s ancient Greek medicine (Hippocrates) that was taken up by Arabs and Persians. (See Avicenna). Homeopathy is the third most popular medicine after allopathy and ayurveda. In 1973 the Central Council on Homeopath was set up. There are currently 200,000 homeopathic doctors.
How India beat coronavirus with ayurveda
This was the title of my first blog article on coronavirus in India on my seignalet-plus website. Made around January 2021. I tell you how the Indians beat coronavirus with ayurveda. If you look at the WHO dashboard for that January, cases and deaths are about zero. There are a million hot shot developers in India and the Indian coronavirus reporting app is state of the art. So if anything, there is over reporting. I suspect that a lot of the cases and deaths were just respiratory diseases. Air quality is terrible in much of India and lung diseases are rife.
So I thought that the story was done and dusted and I was prepared to move on to a new project.
Vaccine roll out causes new spike
Then the stupid vaccine roll out started. In the worst hit, severely vitamin d deficient states and UT, Maharashtra, Delhi and Goa, 2 weeks after the vaccine roll out started, infections started to rocket, hospitals were overwhelmed and there were many deaths. On May 17th there were nearly 4 times as many deaths as the previous peak in September 2020. Professor Dolores Cahil and Professor Luc Montagnier predict many deaths and injuries from the vaccines. It’s called ADE, short for Antibody Disease Enhancement. From an article in Nature: “….Previous respiratory syncytial virus and dengue virus vaccine studies revealed human clinical safety risks related to ADE, resulting in failed vaccine trials…” Professor Cahill pointed to this 2010 Texas University study on mice at the start of the coronavirus madness:
Immunization with SARS coronavirus vaccines leads to pulmonary immunopathology on challenge with the SARS virus Tseng et al
“..These SARS-CoV vaccines all induced antibody and protection against infection with SARS-CoV. However, challenge of mice given any of the vaccines led to occurrence of Th2-type immunopathology suggesting hypersensitivity to SARS-CoV components was induced. Caution in proceeding to application of a SARS-CoV vaccine in humans is indicated….”
Out of state immigrant workers sent home again
In April, severely vitamin d deficient Maharashtra and Delhi started sending their day workers from other states home again in trains, starting mini spike in those states.
“Second wave” now over
But now, two months after it started at the end of March. this “second wave” appears to be over. A report in the Guardian 4 days ago says the vaccination program is faltering because of “supply problems and hesitancy”. Good! Deaths are now half of what they were at their previous, 2020 peak in September. Let’s put this in perspective: 5,600 deaths this week in a country of one and a half billion people. That means that your odds of dying from coronavirus this week in India (to July 12th 2021) are 1 in 2.3 million.
The Indian states vitamin d study
Having become very interested in how the whole of India beat coronavirus with ayurvedic medicine, I started to focus on the states and Union Territories. Then I found the study: Lower levels of vitamin D are associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection and mortality in the Indian population: An observational study, by Padhi et al in Kolkata (Calcutta) in Bengal from September 2020 showing mean serum vitamin d levels in all the Indian states and Union territories. Vitamin d levels were listed in the study together with infection rates and mortality rates.
Here are their conclusions: “..The present observational study revealed an association of vitamin D with SARS-CoV-2 infection and related mortality. Further studies are required to validate our observations…”
Was this the proof we’d been waiting for?
Was this the study which would prove once and for all that the covid scam could have been over in 5 minutes? Just distribute a year’s supply of vitamin d supplements to the population? I got Shahanil to do dashboards of the rate of infection, death rate among infected and cumulative death rates taken from the Indian governments app up to March 9th 2020 so that I could compare them with the mean serum vitamin d levels for each state and UT.
Dr. Holick and “The vitamin d solution” – a short note
How were the vitamin d figures arrived at? Dr. Holick, professor of endocrinology at Boston University has been studying vitamin d since 1980 with over 570 authored or co-authored, peer reviewed articles. His discoveries make drugs and vaccines obsolete. They are studiously ignored by the pharma controlled medical profession of course. But doctors around the world cannot resist doing studies to find out if the patients with the particular disease they are treating have vitamin d deficiency. In other words, is their disease nothing more than a vitamin d deficiency, easily cured with vitamin d supplementation? They measure the serum vitamin d of their patients and compare it to that of healthy controls. There are now hundreds of such studies and the answer is an unequivocal and resounding: YES!
A correlation but some anomalies
When I started to look at Shahanil’s beautiful dashboard infographics I could see a clear correlation between vitamin d levels and infection rates but not so much with the mortality rate among the infected. Severely deficient Delhi, Marashatra and Goa with high infection rates and mortality rates. Tick! (Check for our American friends). Vitamin d sufficient Bihar and highly vitamin d sufficient Madya Pradesh, both with the lowest infection rates in India. Tick! But high mortality rate among the infected in Madya Pradesh and what to make of it? Also, what to make of highly vitamin d deficient Rajasthan with a super low infection rate, 4th lowest in India. What to make of severely vitamin d deficient Uttar Pradesh with the second lowest infection rate in India?
Was my thesis incorrect?
Was there really no correlation between vitamin d levels and covid infection and mortality rates? Or were there other factors at play? So I started to delve a bit deeper. I have a day job but I commissioned another engineering student in Pune to make a report for each state with statistics like proportion of slum households, proportion of population who are tribal, lung disease statistics, percentage of population engaged in agriculture or other outdoor activities, climate, media reports on how pro-active the state was in promoting ayurvedic recipes etc. etc. She also gave links and excerpts for all the media reports on treatments for coronavirus so we could see which allopathic drugs and protocols were used for severe cases.
So then things started to become much clearer.
Some caveats :
- The Padhi study is not always accurate. The mean serum levels listed in the Padhi article under the main, state heading are not 100% reliable. For example, all day long one day I was wracking my brains trying to work out why highly vitamin d sufficient Chandigarh had such a high infection rate. Then I looked more closely at the corroborating studies listed. It’s not bloody highly sufficient. It’s bloody highly deficient. Doh! Grrr… The corroborating studies also need to be closely examined for reliability. In some states there are a lot of studies. 8 for Maharashsta. When they all give the same mean figure we know we have a winner and it’s a tick. One study in Punjab was very useful because they tested in both rural and urban populations. So I could see the likely disparity between the 2 in other states as well.
- Climate and thus vitamin d levels can vary in a state. We have given the climate for each state so you can check to see if the mean serum vitamin d given is reliable. If for example the level is highly deficient and there is only one month of the year when it would be pleasant to go out in the afternoon when UVB rays are hitting the earth, that’s a tick. But sometimes climate varies from region to region in a state, sometimes widely. The climate variations are usually due to different elevations. This will impact on the vitamin d levels of the people in those regions of course. So then we have to be circumspect about attributing a figure for the whole state.
- Occupation and diet In Bihar vitamin d serum levels studies show a mean of 30 ng/ml: sufficient, and BIhar had by far the lowest infection rate in India. What maybe most significant is that in this very poor state, most people work in agriculture so are out in the sun all day getting UVB rays hitting their skin to make vitamin d.
Even in states were studies show high serum vitamin d there may be a high proportion of people who work in industry or have sedentary occupations. A study in Punjab showed a difference of 6 ng/ml between rural and urban populations. Diet may also play a role. A study showed that levels of k1 affect mortality rates. It’s used up very quickly in complications of pneumonia and the microembolisms in blood vessels which lead to organ failure are more likely with low levels. It also affects the elasticity of the lungs. So is the consumption of green leafy vegetables higher in one particular state than another? I have no data on this.
- The reports cannot be taken as a scientific study. but should be considered only as interesting speculation. To be really scientific we would need to look at each district separately in a state because infection and mortality rates often varied widely, often with much higher rates in urban districts. But was this because of people’s close proximity to each other or was it because city dwellers have lower vitamin d levels, sometimes much lower?
The other, overlooked Indian traditional medicine
The “tribal miracle”
In India a large part of the population is tribal and they live mainly in the hills and the forests. They make up different proportions in the states. Some, like Bihar and Tamil Nadu have only 1% tribal. 4 states have zero tribals. Others have a lot more. Most are concentrated in the so called 7 sisters states in the north east. Mizoram for example has 94%. Neighbouring Manipur has 41% and the next state along is Nagaland with 86% tribal. The 7 sisters had very low infection rates and very low mortality rates. It’s been postulated that this is because there is a narrow corridor separating these states from the rest of India and it was easy to shut this down during lockdowns. But the curve of infections started at the same time as the rest of India and follows the same, albeit much shallower trajectory, so I think this is incorrect. Interestingly there is no second wave in these states. The risk of dying from coronavirus has been virtually nil in Mizoram all the way through.
Odisha (aka Orissa) and Jarkhand on the other hand are definitely not cut off from the rest of India. Odisha has 23% tribal and the 14th lowest infection rate. Jarkhand has 26% tribal and the 2nd lowest rate of infection in India. Is Jarkhand’s low infection rate due to the high tribal population? (There might be another explanation. See further on) I can find no data separating the tribals from the rest of the population in regards to coronavirus infections and mortalities and the media are not reporting much at all on the tribals except on their vaccine hesitancy. But there is anecdotal evidence that they are little affected and the statistics seem to bear this out. Arunachal Pradesh with 69% tribal had the 4th lowest death rate among infected in India and they don’t even have a hospital with an Intensive Care Unit. Severe cases had to be sent to neighbouring Assam.
India has 8,000 medicinal plants!
India has an incredible diversity of medicinal plants. There are 17,000 to 18,000 flowering plants in India. Nearly half of them have medicinal properties. In each tribal village there is a folk healer. Their knowledge of plant remedies is handed down through oral tradition.
Drug company prospecting
There are professional plant prospectors who go to the tribal villages and interview the healers about the plant remedies they use and then compile a report and publish it.
10 Plants for respiratory infections in one small area!
For example in Rajasthan respiratory infections are very prevalent in that state due to the dessert climate and the frequent dust storms. Just in one small area of Rajasthan the healers know of 10 different plants which which are good for the condition! In ayurveda, polyherbal formulations are mainly used and there is a complex pseudoscience underpinning everything. It’s mainly about balancing the 3 doshas. In tribal, village, medicine plants are used as monotherapy.
For every state and UT we have given a link to the studies done in those states and plants which might be useful for covid-19 symptoms.
Why were the tribals unscathed
So were the tribals so unscathed by coronavirus because they had their own, effective, plant medicine?
Or is it something in their genome that makes them resistant to coronavirus. For instance it’s known that they have genes which make them more resistant to malaria. “…hunter-gatherer populations in India possess particular variants of the interleukin-4 gene associated with anti-parasitological activity at much higher frequency than their agriculturalist neighbors, possibly as a result of living with higher burdens of helminthic endoparasites…”
One other, very interesting theory has been put forward. It’s quite amusing. I’m keeping it for my subscribestar subscribers. I will just say only that Gordon Ramsay knows something about this.
Does the monsoon have a sanitizing effect?
In India there are 2 monsoons. All of India gets the summer monsoon (May to September) but some south eastern states also get the winter monsoon (October to November). So some states get 6 months of heavy downpours. The monsoons cause an increase in bacterial and fungal activity. Water born and air born infections are more common, including colds. But do the heavy rains wash the viral particles out of the air? Jarkhand gets both monsoons. It has 14% slum dwellers so I’m guessing that the slum dwellers had more infections and deaths (I can find no data on this) and this would offset any “tribal advantage”. Yet it has the third lowest infection rate in India (equal with Madya Pradesh).
The effect of poor air quality
Rajasthan and Madya Pradesh (MP) both have frequent dust storms and this causes viral infections. But previous viral infections confer some immunity. Rajasthan has more bronchitis and emphysema than other states whereas MP has the average. I think the difference can be explained by the fact that MP is highly vitamin d sufficient whereas Rajasthan is highly deficient.
Smokers have less infections but have more severe outcomes if they are infected. We give you the percentage of smokers in each state and I factor that in to my weighting system for the comments at the bottom of each report.
The ivermectin scandal
Uttar Pradesh shows the way
Uttar Pradesh (UP) used ivermectin from the start. It was widely and intensively distributed. Kiosks were set up in all the transport hubs in Lucknow. Result, highly vitamin d deficient UP had the second lowest infection rate in India in 2020.
Goa, Karnataka, Uttarakhand – Ivermectin on again off again.
The global health mafia insist that ivermecin is not effective as a covid prophylactic and treatment in spite of a mountain of evidence to the contrary. The WHO scientific officer is an Indian. When Goa and Uttarakhand started to put it in their covid home isolation kits she tweeted on the 10th May that the WHO does not recommend its use. The Indian Bar Association in Mumbai started legal proceedings against her on 23rd May. The Goa health minister intitially resisted the pressure from the WHO. Then on June 7th the Indian Union Health Ministry dropped ivermectin from its protocol and the the Goa health minister caved and ordered the ivermectin to be removed from the kits. Is ivermectin still being distributed in Uttarkhand and Karnataka? I don’t know. I can’t find any reports. My head is spinning from trying to unravel the confusion.
Ayush 64 to the rescue
Ayush 64 is a repurposed ayurvedic malaria drug consisting of 7 herbs. The ministry of AYUSH held a large multi centre clinical trial for it. It seems to be the ayurdevic answer to ivermectin. A very powerful Hindu nationalist NGO aligned with the BJP has been charged with distributing it free of charge to any mild or moderate cases in the whole of India. I think this explains why the (relatively high) death rate has now plummeted in India.
So what have we learned? India is a chaotic society with several competing forms of medicine. Long may it remain so! The biggest factor affecting numbers of infected and death from coronavirus is mean serum vitamin d levels. Doctors know this but they are hiding it from you. God forbid that they should relinquish control over your health and your wallet.
