Suramin and Pinus Strobus Essential Oil: Herbal Remedy for Autism / ASD
DISCLAIMER: CONSULT WITH A DOCTOR BEFORE DECIDING ON A TREATMENT PLAN FOR ANY DISEASE.
Suramin is a medication that has been used to cure autism as well as African sleeping sickness and river blindness. Dr. Metharmem Haresh also uses this medicine to cure COVID, particularly complicated COVID cases. Dr. Haresh sent us information about this important alternative anti-COVID medicine which will certainly be valuable not just to people with active COVID infections, but also people with Long Haul COVID symptoms and also individuals who develop health issues related to the COVID vaccine. But in this discussion, we’re going to talk primarily about the use of suramin and Pinus strobus as a natural treatment for autism.
Suramin is also relevant as a medicine that could help people overcome post-COVID vaccine health problems, which have been compared to autism and other autoimmune diseases as a substance that can be used to overcome the Cell Danger Response (a phrase coined by Dr. Naviaux). Though at the cellular level, the Cell Danger Response talks about how cells close up shop and lock their doors, going into a dormant state in response to indicators of danger (pathogens, toxins), this cellular response can also be viewed at the macro-level as the “Play-Dead” parasympathetic nervous system response. This so-called “Play-Dead” response is a new discovery by Dr. Stephen Porges that talks about 3, rather than 2 branches of the autonomic nervous system. Whereas before, the autonomic nervous system was said to consist of two branches, the 1) Sympathetic Fight-or-Flight Nervous System and the 2) Parasympathetic Rest-and-Digest Nervous System, today more and more scientists have noted that the third branch, which is a sub-branch of the Parasympathetic Nervous System involves a reaction that scientists view as “playing dead”.
And “playing dead” is something that doctors and scientists can see at the cellular level using high-powered microscopes or they can simply look directly at their patients and note their symptoms. Dr. Pottenger was a famous physician who viewed all illness as a manifestation of autonomic nervous system dysfunction, which probably sounds just as scary as a diagnosis of “autism” or “autoimmune disease” of any kind. That is, until you realize that autonomic dysfunction is a problem that can be managed using things like breathwork, cold showers, hot sauna sessions, or 1-2 minute at-home exercises to adjust the cranial bones so that cranial nerves are not being pinched. The use of Chlorine Dioxide Solution / Miracle Mineral Supplement (CDS/MMS) as a cure for autism and as a cure for autoimmune diseases including Long COVID and post-COVID vaccine syndrome works perhaps by killing pathogens that are living in remote areas of the body like the liver or gallbladder that are not able to be reached using antibiotics that the doctor prescribes (because the liver breaks these down before they can treat the pathogens infecting the liver or gallbladder), but CDS/MMS may also work as a cure because it releases ions that function as signaling molecules among populations of cells. Namely, CDS / MMS may work in part because it sends cells a signal that it’s safe to open up again and leave the dormant state. This is why so many people with autoimmune disease say that they feel more awake right and alert right after they begin treatment with CDS / MMS.
But Suramin and eastern white pine essential oil (which contains suramin) can be used to treat autoimmune disease naturally or as an herbal remedy for autism because the suramin in Pinus strobus is able to remove blocks that prevent the body from progressing through the healing cycle to a point where the various branches of the autonomic nervous system are balanced.
Suramin prevents attachment of the COVID virus to human cells and it also prevents entry of the virus into the cell as well as release from human host cells. This is why it is considered a natural cure for COVID as well as for Long COVID. It works its magic by interacting with the COVID virus capsid proteins and RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, an enzyme that’s essential for the COVID virus to survive. So suramin works in part by inhibiting pathogens. This much is clear. But suramin also seems to work by improving the function of mitochondria such that human cells become strong and more confident in coming out of a state of dormancy.
Suramin as a stand-alone medicine in clinical settings cannot be given orally. It must be injected into a vein. Subcutaneous or intramuscular injection could cause tissue inflammation and tissue death. It is sold by the pharmaceutical company Bayer under the brand name Germanin.
Below are the side effects that have been reported with Suramin treatment:
- Skin tingling
- Blurry vision
- Soreness in the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet
Once it is injected into the body, Suramin has a half life of 41-78 days with an average half life of 50 days. Suramin is said to be about 20 times more powerful in treating COVID-19 than remdesivir.
Suramin has also been used to treat the following diseases:
- T. b. Rhodesiense
- T. brucei gambiense
- Surra, T. evansi
- River blindness
- Trypanosoma cruzi
- Plasmodium falciparum (malaria)
- AIDS / HIV
- Herpes simplex
- Chikungunya virus
- Dengue virus
- Zika virus
- Ebola virus
- Non small cell lung cancer
- Breast cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Brain tumors
- Prostate cancer
Natural Sources of Suramin: Pine Needle Essential Oil as a Natural Autism Treatment
There are several compounds found in Eastern White Pine Needles (Pinus strobus) that have strong medicinal effects in the body. Suramin is one of the constituents, but the Essential Oil of Pinus strobus also contains the following beneficial components:
- Shikimic Acid (see earlier discussion about this component of star anise essential oil)
- Germancrene D
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
Natural Suramin as a Natural Treatment for Autism: Home Treatment Using Eastern White Pine Essential Oil
Pine needles specifically from the Pinus strobus tree have been used for centuries by native Americans and other indigenous peoples to treat respiratory infections. But Suramin, the pharmaceutical, was originally derived from pine needle oils in 1837. So this medicine has been in use for over 100 years.
Pine needle essential oil reduces blood clots that can cause pulmonary embolism, stroke, excessively heavy menstruation, and heart attack. It contains high levels of vitamin A which improves red blood cell production, hair and skin regeneration. It is regularly used as an expectorant for coughs and to treat chest congestion. Pinus strobus essential oil is also good for treating sore throats.
I have not been able to find information about the suramin content of Pinus sylvestris trees. I have also not yet been able to find research regarding the use of Pinus strobus specifically for autism treatment, but Pinus strobus does, in fact contain suramin, which is a substance that is being used with great success as a treatment for autism in clinical settings. And parents with autistic children are lining up for this treatment en masse because of its success. But sadly, from my perspective, as someone who has spent a lot of time researching cures for diseases, I feel very certain that The Powers That Be will either botch the suramin studies (despite all the best efforts by scientists to prove that this is a powerful cure for autism) or they’ll cover up the final results somehow. Eventually, suramin will be scandalized in some way to turn parents against the medicine somehow. And, after Big Pharma works the propaganda and calibrates it perfectly to reach parents of autistic children, well-meaning parents, out of a desire to (of course) protect their children will be appalled at the idea of ever giving their child suramin–even though it is able to cure autism.
So, in an effort to give the power back to parents of autistic children, I need to make it known that the Eastern White Pine needles of the Pinus strobus species contains suramin. This natural form of suramin has roughly the same medicinal effects as pharmaceutical suramin, but it exists in combination with a number of other medicinally active plant-constituents like shikimic acid. Usually in plants, all of the medicinal agents work together in magical ways, but specific extracts from plants can be extremely useful too. Nonetheless though, parents who wish to give their children suramin can do so by administering the essential oil of the Pinus strobus tree to their children.
Pinus palustris Essential Oil / 100% Pure Gum Spirits of Turpentine as a Cure for Autoimmune Disease and Neurological Disorders
The research into the Pinus genus essential oils as a cure for autoimmune diseases is fascinating, but I’ve written quite a lot on this topic in another article. Needless to say though, if you or a loved one has a neurological disease like autism, an autoimmune disorder like fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, you should read more about turpentine. Before you scoff at the idea, remember that suramin and turpentine are relative substances that come from trees that are cousins.
Pycnogenol as a Natural Treatment for Autism
Pycnogenol comes from the Pinus pinaster tree which is also known as the French Maritime Pine tree. A lot of parents have had excellent results giving pycnogenol supplements to children with ADHD, but (because I’ve worked with ADHD kids using other substance like Mucuna pruriens that work exceptionally well as a natural cure for ADHD) when I read the results of using pycnogenol in research settings, the things that really piques my interest include the following:
- The fact that pycnogenol is an extract that comes from the pine tree genus, Pinus, along with other powerful autism cures like Pinus strobus, and medicinal turpentine, Pinus palustris or Pinus elliottii.
- How pycnogenol has been successfully used by parents in Mexico to reduce symptoms of autism naturally.
- That pycnogenol has specifically helped reduce seizures in autistic children. In my research into seizure disorders including epilepsy, I’ve found a high rate of misdiagnoses of epilepsy wherein the seizures were actually being caused by a tapeworm infection. This may seem a bit “far-out” or improbable to European or American parents who have been taught to believe that tapeworm infections don’t happen in our “clean” cultures. But American scientists are seeing just as many misdiagnoses in the U.S. and Europe as in India and other less developed countries (about 30%). I mention this here because if you’re the parent of an autistic child who has seizures, treating your child for tapeworms has about a 30% cure rate against seizure-related disorders. Turpentine essential oil is particularly famous for its ability to cure parasite infections. So Pinus palustris (turpentine) and Pinus pinaster (pycnogenol) as well as Pinus strobus may be working in part by killing infectious pathogens and parasites that are living in the brain.
- Pycnogenol from the Pinus pinaster tree is able to naturally treat brain inflammation in autism. Pinus strobus (suramin) and Pinus palustris (turpentine) have a similar medicinal action on the body.
Pine Needle Essential Oil has been used by Dr. Haresh to prevent and to treat COVID in his patients. And the French Maritime pine bark extract known as Pycnogenol is famous or its ability to improve brain function and mental health. Kerri Rivera has reported that parents of autistic children in Mexico have successfully cured or at the very least, significantly reduced the symptoms of autism using Pycnogenol. In her book, Healing the Symptoms Known as Autism, 2nd Ed., she says that parents use Pycnogenol to reduce the incidence of seizures in autistic children. Pycnogenol has anti-inflammatory properties and it protects the blood vessels.
Pycnogenol Dosage for Children:
Children take 1 mg per kilogram of body weight. Adults should take at least double or possibly triple this dose to treat autoimmune diseases using Pycnogenol.
Pinus Strobus as a Natural Treatment for Autism
Eastern White Pine Needle essential oil and pine needle tea can increase metabolism, which isn’t surprising given its suramin content, but I’m vastly oversimplifying a complex topic regarding cellular metabolism. Pure suramin is a medicine that has been used in antipurinergic therapy for patients who have metabolic diseases affecting cellular energy production (it can be used as a cure for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). Pine Needle essential oil, in contrast contains suramin along with other substances like shikimic acid. At any rate, pharmaceutical suramin is derived from this essential oil that may be valuable as an alternative treatment for long haul COVID, as an herbal remedy for chronic fatigue syndrome, and as a cure for autism. Any of the various other metabolic disorders that seem to be caused by a Cell Danger Response that has been explored in depth by Dr. Robert Naviaux may be treatable using Pinus strobus and other pine tree essential oils from the genus Pinus. Dr. Naviaux is unique in that he has had successful treatment outcomes using suramin as a natural cure for autism and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Note that turpentine baths are often the preferred route of administration as a cure for autism, though oral administration can help clear up digestive issues in people with autoimmune disease.
Suramin as a Treatment for COVID
Suramin inhibits the replication of the COVID-19 spike protein. In other words, it prevents the COVID virus from entering the human cell to reproduce. It works by inhibiting the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, which is essential in order for the virus to remain virulent. But suramin can also prevent virus transmission of COVID variants by vaccinated individuals which is likely to become important in the future as people become more and more concerned about preventing infection with COVID variants.
How to prepare Pine Needle Tea COVID-19 Treatment
- Boil water.
- Pour the water into a mug.
- Put 3-5 drops of Pinus strobus essential oil in a cup of water.
- Drink the tea 3-4 times throughout the day.
In 2017, Dr. Robert Naviaux, professor of medicine, pediatrics, and pathology at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine published a report of a clinical trial in which he used a single intravenous dose of suramin to radically improve the symptoms of a small group of autistic children. Their improvements from this single injection lasted for 5 to 8 weeks. After this incredible discovery, Dr. Naviaux developed innovative treatments for autism as well as related diseases and disorders, some of which are surprising. Indeed, many COVID sufferers develop Long Haul COVID Syndrome which is notably similar to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Dr. Naviaux has learned through his research that Long Haul COVID and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are related to autism in that these diseases impact the mitochondria of human cells, ultimately lowering the available cellular energy to the detriment of patients.
Dr. Naviaux’s research has positively changed the lives of many people through his innovations and as a result of his willingness to follow research leads that consensus science has scoffed at. His Cell Danger Response theory explains why a substance like suramin functions to overcome COVID and Long Haul COVID issues as well as post-COVID vaccine health problems. The Cell Danger Response theory holds that autism, Long Haul COVID, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lyme Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, PTSD, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis, and traumatic brain injury are all caused by a metabolic dysfunction that can be treated.
Pinus Strobus Essential Oil and Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), Another Tree Medicine to Cure Autism
Begin by reading this post which provides a basic list of the medicinal actions of another tree-derived substance known as Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO). In this book, we provide an overview of DMSO, how to use it safely, some known medicinal treatment combinations of DMSO and more. Do not attempt to use DMSO until you’ve familiarized yourself with this information about how to use DMSO safely.
DMSO is an FDA-approved medicine. As a stand-alone treatment, DMSO stands out to me as one of the only substances that I currently know about that can heal the brain and that can regrow spinal cord tissues, and nerves. But this medicinal action is hardly the only thing that it can do. In fact, DMSO has the broadest medicinal action of any FDA-approved system on record currently. That’s why you really need to learn more about it before you use it. Don’t dump DMSO and essential oils into just any container willy-nilly. I’ve seen parents applying DMSO combined with essential oils using metal and plastic rollers and I’m sure they don’t realize that DMSO will eat through the plastic and combine with the metals and then send these toxic substances directly into their child’s cells. It’s an honest mistake, but do your due diligence. And entirely new system of medicine could be based around the use of DMSO with essential oils and herbs. But everyone is responsible for making sure that DMSO is not misused in ways that mislead the public regarding its actual health benefits. So take the time to learn about DMSO and then use this substance with great care and respect. As an autoimmune disease cure and as a cure for neurological disorders, DMSO has huge potential. Note that inspired-oncologists use DMSO in combination with tiny doses of chemo to reduce the dose of chemo without reducing its effectiveness.
And now, I need to advise that parents should approach the use of Pinus strobus essential oil combined with DMSO with great caution. I have not read studies that specifically talk about the use of Pinus strobus essential oil in combination with DMSO in either humans or animals, so combining these two substances together would be totally experimental. But DMSO has the ability to combine very well with substances like essential oils. Note that most oils, including essential oils, already have skin penetration abilities. In other words, they are already able to pass directly into the bloodstream through the skin. But DMSO can be used in creative ways to get around having to do injections or IV treatments with certain medicines. For example, when people are young, they naturally absorb vitamin B12 from animal products through the digestive system. But as people get older (in their 50s), they stop being able to absorb vitamin B12 from their digestive system. Not long ago, maybe 10-15 years ago perhaps, it was common practice for doctors to routinely give their patients above age 50, an injection of vitamin B12. This vitamin B12 injection would prevent dementia as well as a host of digestive system ailments and other health issues that resemble autoimmune diseases. But over the past decade or so, insurance companies have created resistance to giving patients this super-cheap preventive vitamin B12 shot. Doctors have to fight to give their patients this shot and they risk their license in some cases to give their patients vitamin B12 injections. So these older patients can’t get vitamin B12 by taking supplements, but they can combine vitamin B12 with DMSO to dose themselves at home. So DMSO can be used in this way sometimes to get around the need for actual injections and ensure that medicines can make their way into the blood and the brain.
Vitamin B12 used in combination with DMSO is an important topic in terms of any neurological illness, but you can read more about vitamin B12 as a cure for multiple sclerosis and other myelination diseases here.
But going back to the theoretical mixture of Pinus strobus with DMSO–if you decide to try this mixture, start by administering it to yourself. Note that DMSO can be extremely drying and pine trees can cause a rash. Start with a larger proportion of DMSO and a smaller proportion of Pinus strobus and increase the dose over time as long as you don’t have a reaction. Note the dose within which medicinal effects occur.
For example, combine 99.9% Pharma Grade DMSO in a glass container with the Pinus strobus. Begin with 20 drops of DMSO and 80 drops of filtered water (to make a mixture with a concentration of 20% DMSO). Then, add 1 drop of Pinus strobus essential oil / extract to this mix. Administer 1 drop of the combined DMSO-water-Pinus strobus mixture to the skin.
