Yes, that website that everyone keeps asking about, with all the 80s music, is one of my 20-plus web properties. I’m always traveling for one reason or another.

NOTE: Nothing in this article is medical advice or recommendations, and is not to be construed as such. This article is a personal experience and is to be used solely for informational purposes.

WEST DES MOINES, IOWA — One of the most-read articles on this site is about Pfizer admitting that non-vaccinated people can be contaminated (exposed) to experimental mRNA and its spike proteins simply by being near someone who’s recently been injected.

This new species of vaxxed, GMO human is shedding the spike proteins and infecting others with their contaminated genes. At least that is what many good, reputable, non-compromised doctors believe is happening. In fact one of the inventors of mRNA injectable technology, Luigi Warren, tweeted that shedding does in fact happen. But Twitter made him delete his tweet because he was “spreading disinformation.” Let that sink in for a second. Nobody knows how long this contagion lasts from the time of the jab.

I’ve been writing about people getting severe headaches and dying days or weeks after the experimental shots due to blood clots in their brains. All of these stories are very similar – headaches, complain to doctor, doctor sends them home, they die from strokeruptured aneurysm or worse. So it should be no surprise that I was quite worried when my normal physiological equilibrium was way off for over two weeks, which is also why we haven’t updated in a while.

Spike protein exposure hits home?

My potentially life-threatening experience began around May 7. I woke up that morning with a headache like nothing I’d ever experienced. When I say headache, I mean debilitating, throbbing headache. In fact I cannot remember the last time I had a headache at all prior to this. Keep in mind, I have not stepped foot in a doctor’s office since around 2007, as I simply do not trust them. Headaches happen to everyone. At least that is what I hear from friends and acquaintances. So I figured it would just go away with time.

After three days, I broke down and took a few Tylenol (I also hadn’t taken chemical/prescription drugs of any kind since probably 2008). But the headaches persisted and these twitchy feelings kept happening in the same front-right part of my head. I was sleeping for 14-15 hours per day for over a week. Something was wrong, very wrong.

Accepting reality

I keep myself in good shape. I am (was) a certified personal trainer. I’m muscular, but a tad overweight at this moment (yes, 5’9, 175 is considered five pounds “overweight” for a man). The reason I’m sharing this is because most good doctors believe that the best defense against all this craziness is keeping your body, mind and immune system in top shape. And that’s how I’ve stayed out of doctor’s offices for more than a decade.

Further, I’ve been writing about all these people who developed blood clots and died after the experimental mRNA or viral vector shots. Their symptoms were very similar to mine. But I’ve heard just as many anecdotal stories of people coming down with these symptoms after being in close proximity to vaxxed people. Now all that was on my mind is my own potential exposure to spike proteins via shedding.

I started assessing what may be causing these headaches and fatigue, and where the exposure happened. Five different airplane trips the prior two weeks came to mind. Everyone was packed in like sardines. Two major events I attended during that time had thousands of people at them. My feeling was that some vaxxed person/people transmitted their spike proteins to me and my days were numbered due to blood clots in my brain.

I got so worried on the fifth consecutive day of debilitating headaches and fatigue that I actually called an urgent care facility. Since I don’t carry medical insurance, I asked if I could pay cash. Not kidding – the person on the phone said, “sure come on in. We can get you whatever shots you need.” I said NOTHING about shots or vaccines. He just said that after I told him my symptoms. I was, as always, on my own.

Accepting death

Death was a real possibility at this point. I even told a close confidant to handle a few things if I died in the coming days. I was at least going to die fighting for what I believe in and not living in fear. But I also, as a critical thinker, did an inventory of my life and tried to pinpoint all possible causes of these headaches, fatigue and head twitching beneath my skull.

I literally work 17+ hours per day with everything I have going on with my “real” businesses, and my journalistic and ethical duties related to COVID Legal USA and The COVID Blog. Two energy drinks and two cups of coffee in a 24-hour period was the norm. That had to stop immediately.

I cut all caffeine and alcohol (mostly wine) from my life after the second day of headaches. Again, I was very fatigued along with the severe headaches. But I started trying to think positive and thought the fatigue was caffeine withdrawal as I’d grown dependent on it. Further I still went to the gym twice in the week that was the peak of debilitating headaches. I already eat fairly healthy and take several dietary supplements.

The one positive I had going for me is that I suffered no other apparent symptoms that I’ve reported in other people. None of them would have been able to do two-hour cardio and weight workouts in their last days. So maybe there was hope. Maybe the spike proteins were having a difficult time taking over my body, or my body was mitigating a blood clot in my head somehow. But now I needed to discover a way to fight these potential foreign invaders in my body and make my blood as healthy as possible.

Back to health

Four days after eliminating caffeine from my life, the headaches persisted, but were far less severe. The twitching inside my head persisted, like a feeling that blood was squeezing its way through a partially-blocked artery or vein. That’s the only way I can describe it.

In addition to my other regular dietary supplements (zinc, vitamin D, vitamin C) I added feverfew, turmeric, and started eating raw cayenne peppers every morning and night. Garlic and onions are already staples in my diet. But I tripled the intake of those. Anything that is good for my blood, I was pumping into my body. I already drink at least a gallon of water everyday.

Ubiquinol, the active form of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) was added the following week. I took 400 mg per day for a week, before dropping to 200 mg the following week and thereafter. My gym regimen was down to two days in that bad week, but got back to three days the following week and then four the next week. The headaches were all but gone by May 18 or so. But the twitching and feeling of my head being full of liquid persisted. That’s when I turned to the good Dr. Judy Mikovits. She spoke about the antidote for HEALTHY people who unfortunately are contaminated with spike proteins from GMO humans. It’s called suramin.

The research began from there.

Suramin and pine needle tea

The best clue that immediately told me that pine needle tea works to stop the effects of involuntary contamination with spike proteins is the first Google search result. Search “pine needle tea suramin” without quotes and it says in all caps, “pine needles DO NOT CONTAIN SURAMIN.”

Now I was very curious since big tech is suppressing this medicine. Humans have been drinking pine needle tea for centuries. Sailors drank it to fight off scurvy in the 18th and 19th centuries. Suramin has also been used as a treatment for potentially deadly African trypanosomiasis, or sleeping sickness. It is even known to greatly improve the lives of children with autism. Suramin is a synthetic drug that was created by Bayer. But the idea here is to get phytochemicals that act the same way as suramin in the human body.

Some cultures eat the pine needles raw because it is believed that suramin is derived from pine needles. Shikimic acid is the other medicinal phytochemical in pine needles that you want in your body during these surreal spike protein/vaccine times.

But then I thought, “turpentine comes from pine needles.” Won’t that kill me? That deepened the rabbit-hole and led me to the Harvard-educated good Dr. Jennifer Daniels, who once said “The life expectancy of those who do not see the doctor is seven years longer.” She also wrote the book “The Lethal Dose: Murder by Medicine is No Accident.”

I would have never known that people use turpentine in certain situations for health benefits. Granted, I’m not going to go out and start taking tablespoons of turpentine. My only goals were reassurance that pine needles were non-toxic and that you can in fact get suramin and shikimic acid from them. Well, some pine needles are non-toxic. We’ll get to that in a bit.

Pine needles, suramin and the science

There is PLENTY of existing science proving that pine needle tea is good for you in many ways. A 2006 study published in the journal Nutrition and Cancer found that pine needle powder greatly reduced tumor growth in mice and rats. The pine needle powder was derived from a Korean pine species called Pinus densiflora Siebold et Zuccarini.

A 2011 study published in the Journal of Food Science demonstrated powerful antioxidant properties in a pine needle extract from the tree species Cedrus deodara. It found that the extract had strong anti-browning and anti-microbal properties in fruits and vegetables. In other words, it prevented the foods from rotting.

A 2021 study published in the journal Antioxidants (Basel) answered a question of my own curious mind: why do pine needles never wilt and die like all other leaves on trees? The study found that the flavonoids in pine needles have potential anti-aging properties. The study suggests that extracts from the pine species P. taiwanensi can be used as an anti-inflammatory ingredient in foods and drugs.

Pine needle tea is one of the best ways to realize the potential benefits of suramin and shikimic acid. A 2011 study published in the journal Nutrition Research and Practice concluded that a hot water extract from the pine species Pinus densiflora had far superior antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties than extracts from chemical processes.

Which pine needles to use

Of course you can use all the foregoing species of pine needles mentioned in the studies. I ordered the book “Toxic Plants of North America” (it’s expensive even used) and learned that at least 20 types of pine-looking trees grow toxic needles.

The typical Christmas tree (Araucaria heterophylla) is not a pine tree. It looks like a pine, but the needles are toxic. Yew pines (Podocarpus macrophyllus), ponderosas (Pinus ponderosa), and balsam fir trees (Abies balsamea) are also toxic. Eastern white pines, red pines, and noble firs are what you want.

Tamiflu, a prescription flu drug, is made from shikimic acid. But several reports say that the Swiss pharmaceutical company that makes the drug, Roche, gets its shikimic acid from the Chinese star anise plant. 

Interestingly, Roche is also currently entangled in a $1.5 billion false claims lawsuit that you can read about at your leisure. Shikimic acid is also found in white pine and red pine needles. Mike Adams over at Natural News dug up a bunch of studies finding that shikimic acid prevents blood clots.

When I ventured out to find pine trees for their needles, I kept in mind that the desirable trees have five needles per bundle or clump (fascicle). That is the easiest way to identify white pines (aka Pinus strobus). Plus if you’re a Christian, God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” Genesis 1:29.

Two fascicles from the pine needles I harvested.

I personally won’t use anything that looks like the following. The first is a balsamic fir tree. The second one is a white cedar tree.


I filled three large freezer bags with white pine needles from a huge pine forest, which are everywhere in the Midwest. Store them in the freezer. Remember these trees survive harsh winters and hot summers, and always look the same no matter what (there’s no such thing as “fall” or autumn with these trees).

Slice the needles at least three times so you have smaller pieces. There’s also anecdotal evidence that suggests cutting the needles releases all the goodness you want in your body. I stuff the chopped needles in both tea bags and tea balls.

Don’t put it in boiling water. Take the water off the stove right BEFORE it starts boiling and pour it over your needles. Let it steep for 10 minutes.

The tea itself should be relatively clear. I squeeze a tad of honey in mine for a little more flavor. I also found stirring it really fast causes the leftover needles to sink to the bottom of the cup. Regardless, I just drink and swallow whatever remaining needles are in the tea. After three days of drinking three cups of pine needle tea per day, all remnants of the headaches and twitches in my head were gone.

Did pine needle tea cure me?

Today, I take 200 mg of ubiquinol CoQ10 and maintenance dosages of Vitamin D, Vitamin C, turmeric, cayenne pepper, zinc and feverfew daily. Onions and garlic remain staples in my diet, as I love both of them and they taste good to me.

I’ve grown to like the flavor of pine needle tea with honey. So I drink two cups per day – one in the morning and one before bed. I’ll drink 4-5 cups if I’m going to be in crowded spaces like airplanes, concerts, sporting event, etc. I also just received pine needle oil capsules in the mail. These may be my go-to prophylaxis in a pinch when I’m around vaxxed, GMO humans. But I’m 95% back to normal now. Sometimes I feel a little stress pressure in my head. But I think now I’m just paranoid and any little abnormality creeps me out.

As someone who prides himself on critical thinking, I cannot say for certain that pine needle tea cured me. Perhaps it’s a mind over matter thing. Maybe it was a combination of all the other interventions. I may have just had severe migraines for a week due to stress and being overworked. But I will say that it wasn’t until pine needle tea was added to my daily nutritional regimen that all remnants of the headaches and twitches disappeared. Did I really have blood clots in my brain? Was it just stress-related migraines from working too much and rarely sleeping in my mid-40s? I don’t know.

The COVID Blog is my duty. I now have a responsibility to the public to continue covering these stories. This experience was scary for sure. I honestly don’t know what was wrong with me and/or what happened. All I can do is read, learn and hope the problem is resolved for good and the new prophylaxis treatments prevent it from ever happening again. But rest assured I’ll keep going as long as my body permits. Stay vigilant and protect your friends and loved ones.
