Why You Shouldn't Trust the Zelenko Protocol?

Dr. Zelenko’s main hypothesis was based on the data showing that early intervention and treatment of high-risk patients with COVID-19 results in significantly few hospitalizations and deaths. This treatment regimen involving zinc, low-dose hydroxychloroquine, and azithromycin is also apparently known as, “The Zelenko Protocol.”

Introduction

Dr. Zelenko originally categorised patients by risk and treated high-risk patients with hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and azithromycin.

He has since evolved his protocols to include a quercetin protocol for low-risk patients as well as guidelines for prophylaxis. Dr. Zelenko shared the details of his protocol on March and April 2020 in open letters to the medical community and also shared updated treatment and prophylaxis protocols on August 2020. 

He has also published his first research paper on his treatment protocol. See the press release. Dr. Zelenko's paper establishes, with statistical significance, that his early outpatient protocol reduces hospitalizations by 84%. Dr. Zelenko's statement to the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Secutity indicates no deaths from amongst the group of patients that initiated treatment during the first 4 days, and took medications for at least 5 days. 

Based on rapidly emerging clinical trials evidence of ivermectin, an anti-parasitic medicine, has highly potent real-world, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory properties against COVID-19 virus, he has also included Ivermectin as part of his protocol.

Dr. Zelenko is now investigating the use of nebulized hydroxychloroquine, which could very well prove to be the final nail in the coffin for the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. If you are interested in the inside story of how Dr. Zelenko discovered the Zelenko protocol, it is best told in his interview with Dr. Breggin [backup]. Dr. Zelenko has been banned from twitter, but you can keep up with him on Telegram.

The FLCCC (Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance) maintains a useful website with current information for medical practitioners. They recommend the I-MASK+ and MATH+ treatment protocols for hospitalized patients. They are currently strongly advocating in favor of ivermectin instead of hydroxychloroquine, and they also recommend using quercetin combined with vitamin C as a zinc ionophore.

About Dr Vladimir Zelenko

He graduated with a B.A. degree with high honors in Chemistry from Hofstra University. After receiving an academic scholarship to attend S.U.N.Y. at Buffalo School of Medicine, he earned his M.D. degree in May 2000. Dr. Zelenko completed his family medicine residency at South Nassau Communities Hospital in Oceanside, N.Y. in May 2004. Since then, Dr. Zelenko has practiced family medicine in New York’s Hudson Valley. He has been described by his patients as like a family member to thousands of families, and is a medical adviser to the volunteer ambulance corps in Kiryas Joel, New York.

When asked about studies that seemed to discredit the efficacy of HCQ in treating the Chinese coronavirus, Zelenko explained “You don’t fire a gun without a bullet in it and then say the gun doesn’t work when you don’t kill the target. The studies that were done on HCQ did not include the use of Zinc.  HCQ is what opens the cell and enables Zinc to attack the virus. One is not effective without the other, or without a suitable substitute for HCQ. The studies were designed to fail.”

Dr. Zelenko says that both prophylaxis measures and actual case treatments need to be customized to the individual. As a general rule, he says, those people who are in the higher risk groups, both by age and by other pre-existing conditions, require more aggressive actions on both the preventative and diagnostic side.

“This virus remains relatively stable inside the host for about the first five days,” Zelenko says. “After that it starts to multiply rapidly. It also starts to migrate from sinus to lungs and cardio areas where involvement becomes more severe and treatment becomes more difficult. The key is early intervention.”  Zelenko again mentioned his 84% success rate in high-risk patients.

Why You Shouldn't Trust the Zelenko Protocol?

Firstly, you shouldn't trust the Zelenko protocol alone. Never attempt to self medicate. Discuss with your healthcare provider before taking the nutrients or drugs as per the protocol. Be aware that most of the doses for supplements are above the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) and therefore such doses should not be maintained on a long term basis. 

In addition, you shouldn't trust the Zelenko protocol as there is no mandate. Dr Zelenko does not make it mandatory for you to trust the protocol.

Furthermore, you shouldn't trust the Zelenko protocol for your horses. Stop it! Your horse is not a human.

Also, you shouldn't trust the Zelenko protocol if you are pregnant. The safety of ivermectin in pregnancy has not been determined.

Finally, you shouldn't trust the Zelenko protocol as the protocol might keep you away from the hospital. You should discuss with your healthcare provider and get to the hospital as soon as possible? Please follow the guidelines as advised by your local health authorities in order to minimise your risk.

You are reminded to seek immediate medical attention (go to a hospital’s emergency department) if you develop emergency warning signs of COVID-19 such as:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • Bluish lips or face
  • New confusion or inability to arouse

Key Takeaway

You should never attempt to self medicate without the guidance of a licensed medical provider. If you are not a medical doctor, you are likely to find the information in the Zelenko protocol overwhelming. 
Also, please follow other precautions (as advised by your local health authorities and doctors) in order to minimise your risk.

Do your own research. Discuss with your healthcare provider. Make your own conclusion and decide on the best informed decision after weighing the potential benefit and risk.

Treatments do not replace vaccines and other measures. All practical, effective, and safe means should be used. Elimination is a race against viral evolution. No treatment, vaccine, or intervention is 100% available and effective for all variants.

Disclaimer: Always see your doctor before taking the Zelenko protocol.
