The Covid-19 Spike Protein: Understanding its Effect on the Body

From the beginning of 2020, we have become accustomed to hearing about the Covid-19 virus. Many of us have sought out advice on how to keep our immune system strong and healthy while avoiding falling into a trap of fear and dread. We have seen people with compromised immunity become greatly affected by the virus while others have, unfortunately, passed away. Since then, a potential answer to our dilemma has arisen in the form of a vaccine. With nearly 60% of Americans having received the Covid-19 vaccine, we’ve been told that it is safe and effective and offers us protection against the virus. Unfortunately, we have seen many people negatively affected after receiving this vaccine that we know very little about. Thankfully, not everyone has had or will have a reaction to this vaccine, but nonetheless, each and every person deserves to have informed consent before making their decision.

This article’s goal is to provide information about how the spike protein affects the body and what one can do to support the body. Each and every one of us deserves to know the full picture of the risks and benefits of a potential treatment. Many of us have been robbed of true informed consent. My hope is that this article will shed some light as to why I believe we should be cautious about receiving this vaccine. I also want to give those reading hope if they have indeed taken the vaccine, but now regret their decision. The body is miraculous as it can utilize nutrients that have been placed on the earth to heal and recover. I truly believe if we remove the things that hinder the body and give it the things it needs; we will thrive.

How Does Covid-19 Invade the Body?

Before we ever start feeling symptoms, the virus enters into the body through your nose, mouth, or eyes giving it a passageway into our mucous membranes. After the virus has access into the body, its exterior spike proteins attach to ACE2 receptors on a cell. This is the key that unlocks the door for the virus to invade a healthy cell and to start replicating. Once the virus invades the cell, it uses ribosomes to access genetic material in order to create the novel spike proteins for the replicating virus. From here, the virus essentially hijacks the healthy cell and becomes a factory for creating the Covid-19 virus. Now that the virus is spreading in the body, it can move lower into the respiratory tract and effect the lungs like we see in many Covid cases. In fact, it makes sense that the virus has an affinity for the lungs because of the numerous amount of ACE2 receptors located on the lung’s alveoli. The alveoli are tiny air sacks at the ends of the bronchioles where the exchange of oxygen takes place. 

Covid-19 Vaccines

The three Covid-19 vaccines available in the United States are Johnson and Johnson, Moderna, and Pfizer. They all work similarly as their main goal is to access our cells, create spike proteins, and manufacture antibodies that will recognize and kill the Covid-19 virus. Although we are told that the spike proteins will stay localized at the injection site, we have seen evidence that tells us otherwise. I would like to highlight a few key areas of concern that we are now seeing, although we can imagine that there will be many more discoveries made in the future about the safety and the risk/benefit analysis of Covid-19 vaccines.

Dr. Ramirez says, “Since ACE2 is a major binding target for SARS-CoV-2 in the lungs and vasculature of other organs in the body, tissues that are behind vasculature, that receive blood from affected vessels, are at risk of damage from the virus.”

This means that the spike protein can attach to ACE2 receptors found in endothelial cells lining our blood vessels and carry that tainted blood to organs systems. We also see a large amount of these receptors on the alveolar epithelial cells in the lungs and small intestine which puts these areas of the body at greater risk. 

Potential Damage

Blood Clots

There is evidence that those who have received the mRNA Covid vaccines have a greater risk of blood clotting. A Canadian doctor named Charles Hoffe has observed that 62% of his patients had elevated D-dimer levels, a test done to determine whether or not blood clots are found in the body. It’s important to note that the thrombosis seen in the patients with elevated D-dimer levels are microscopic clots which are difficult to detect. He remarks that the mRNA vaccines have induced this clotting effect by creating the spike protein which attaches to cells in the wall of our arteries and impedes blood flow. Dr. Hoffe stated, “In fact, all of the frequent side effects of the shot, which are headaches, nausea, dizziness, and fatigue could all be signs of cerebral thrombosis on a capillary level. I mean…literally, you could be having thousands and thousands of tiny, tiny clots in your brain that won’t show on a scan, but they will give you those exact symptoms.” 

It’s interesting to note that those who are infected by the Covid-19 virus experience shortness of breath which may be attributed to increased clotting and thick blood making it very difficult for the exchange of oxygen in the small capillaries surrounding our alveoli.

Immune System Dysregulation 

Other concerns related to the Covid-19 vaccines include immune system changes. It is reported that a 55 year old male experienced a rheumatoid arthritis flair after receiving his second Pfizer shot. This leads us to consider the effects of Covid-19 vaccinations on autoimmune conditions. Many doctors have also seen an increase of dormant viruses such as viruses from the Herpes family after vaccination. There have been 3 reports of the shingles virus being activated after receiving the mRNA shots.

The Blood Brain Barrier

Common symptoms of the Covid-19 infection as well as vaccination include dizziness, headache, nausea, and loss of concentration. This brings us to assume that this infection affects the central nervous system to some degree. The brain, which is part of our central nervous system, has a protective mechanism called the blood brain barrier. This barrier filters toxins from the tiny capillaries that supply blood to the brain that would otherwise cross into our neurons. Our capillaries are lined with epithelial cells that are tightly woven to create a secure barrier where only certain molecules and some gasses can pass through into the brain’s tissue. Scientist at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University have seen evidence that the Covid spike protein creates inflammation within the endothelial cells that compose our blood brain barrier. Once damage has been done to this barrier, it will become “leaky” and allow toxins to invade brain tissue.

Dr. Ramirez says, “Altered function of this barrier, which normally keeps harmful agents out of the brain, greatly increases the possibility of neuroinvasion by this pathogen, offering an explanation for the neurological manifestations experienced by Covid-19 patients.”

Can I Get Sick by Being in Contact with a Vaccinated Person?

Evidence has shown that the vaccinated indeed can spread the Covid-19 virus to unvaccinated. A paper posted in 2021 in the Lancet observed that the vaccinated had 251 times the viral load with the Delta variant in their nostrils compared to unvaccinated (pre-vaccine era) individuals with an old strain in 2020. Although we are comparing different variants in this study, it was concluded that social distancing should be continued with or without vaccination. It goes to show that the vaccinated can and do transmit the virus to other individuals and are what Dr. McCullough calls, “presymptomatic superspreaders”.

Thoughts to Consider

Most of us are familiar with the troubles that have come along with the Johnson and Johnson vaccine in regards to the risk of blood clots. Health authorities put a pause on the administration of the vaccine in April of 2021 when six cases of rare blood clots were discovered in women between the ages of 18-49 associated with the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. After that time, there were nine other cases found with a total of fifteen women effected. 

After eleven days, the delay was lifted after the committee voted in favor of continuing administration as recommended by an expert panel. The panel concluded that the benefits of the vaccine outweighed the potential risks. Panel members agreed that it is crucial for women to be warned about the risks that go along with the vaccine. They are to be given a fact sheet with a description of the risks and symptoms of blood clots in order to be informed.

Dr. Beth Bell, an opposing member of the committee said, “I am concerned the women will not be adequately informed just by (emergency use authorization) factsheets.” The opposing members were concerned that there wasn’t a strong enough warning included in the recommendations.

Do we trust public health authorities like the CDC or FDA to know what’s best for us and to truly look after our own interests? Do we trust them to know that the benefit of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine far outweighs the risks? Do we trust them to know what’s best for our families and daughters? That is a question where we all must do our due diligence by researching for ourselves to come to a conclusion. We are just using one example here of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, but we have continually seen evidence of the risks of receiving any of the Covid-19 vaccines.

As I’ve mentioned earlier in this article, I believe we have been robbed of informed consent. Informed consent looks like a doctor giving their patient all of the information when it involves a potential treatment. It looks like not being degraded when asking questions about a medication or vaccine. It looks like trust in the patient-doctor relationship.

Instead, information is censored, health authorities profit and only look out for their interests while they say, “The benefits outweigh the risks.”

I encourage you to be brave, ask questions, research, advocate, and become your own best doctor.

Supplement Recommendations: Supporting the Body in Regard to the Covid-19 Spike Protein

Please note that these are recommendations based on what myself as well as other colleagues have found useful in relation to the problems associated with the spike protein. This list is by no means exhaustive and is meant to educate you on helpful supplementation based on my research. Although the following recommendations are very safe, please practice responsible use when using any supplementation. It is always helpful to work with a practitioner who can tailor your protocol for the greatest impact and safety.

Cardiovascular Support: Supporting Blood Flow in Relation to the Spike Protein


This proteolytic enzyme is known to clean up the body by digesting mucous, undigested food, cysts, and fibrous like growths and tissues. It is typically taken on an empty stomach to scavenge the body of things that need to be cleaned. It works to clean the blood and prevent it from becoming thick and sticky.


This is a supplement coming from fermented soybeans which may be helpful to dissolve a build up of fibrin in the blood as well as plague. Use caution if you are currently on blood thinners as this supplement will naturally thin the blood as well.


This antibacterial food is used by many for heart health and circulation. Garlic acts to naturally thin the blood as well as reduce blood pressure. Not only is garlic great for keeping the blood from becoming thick and sticky, it has powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties which is useful for secondary bacterial infections commonly found in the lungs in Covid cases.


Bromelain is an enzyme coming from pineapple that exhibits anti-inflammatory actions as well as breaks down undigested proteins in the body including fibrin in the blood. In one study it showed promising results in inhibiting the Covid spike protein from binding to cell receptors.

Soil Based Probiotics

Did you know that Ivermectin was derived from a probiotic strain called Streptomyces avermictilis? It was discovered after a microbiologist in Japan collected soil samples at Tokyo’s Kitasako Institute while looking for medicinal bacterial strains. Streptomyces avermictilis was one of the strains collected. After testing, it was discovered that it had remarkable antiparasitic qualities and then was later modified as Ivermectin. Soil based probiotics such as Prescript-Assist contain similar strains to Streptomyces avermictilis such as Streptomyces griseus, Streptomyces griseoflavus, and Streptomyces venezuelae.

Sweet Wormwood

As mentioned in the last blog post, sweet wormwood is a powerful antiviral herb that works to support the body during Covid-19 infection. Studies have shown the effectiveness of wormwood extracts on cell cultures infected by SARS-CoV-2 and other variants versus other common antimalarial drugs. Wormwood had a higher rate of viral inhibition compared to the others and showed no cell toxicity.


This is an amino acid that has antioxidant benefits as well as is a precursor to glutathione, a major antioxidant. One of the most well known uses for NAC is supporting the lungs by ridding them of excess mucous. It has been very beneficial in cases of pneumonia which is a common secondary infection that comes along side Covid-19.


Important for healthy lung and bronchiole function, this mineral has shown to inhibit the replication of viruses, including SARS-CoV-2. Quercetin, a powerful antioxidant acts as a zinc ionophore which helps to get zinc into our cells in order for us to utilize it better. Using both zinc and quercetin together can boost zinc’s effectiveness.
