Lets discuss Spike Proteins and Pine Essential Oil.
Spike proteins are glycoproteins that bind to Angiotensin Complex Receptors (ACE-2) in the human body. The areas that have amounts of ACE-2 are the Lungs, Kidneys, and Vascular System. Therefore, once spike proteins bind to ACE-2 the cytokine storm begins and the organs are affected. Spike proteins allow viruses to penetrate the host cells and cause infection. Viruses must be able to break into cells to be able to set up an infection. Viruses gain entry by using the now notorious spike protein, like typical of viruses, spike proteins must hijack our own biology to open the lock. Spike proteins work like keys, as they can change shape to interact with a protein on the surface of human cells. Those spike proteins then latch the virus onto a cell allowing them to get entry into those cells.
“SARS-CoV-2 is an RNA virus with four structural proteins. One of them, the Spike protein is a surface protein which binds the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE-2) present on host cells. Therefore, the Spike protein is considered a relevant antigen for v development.” citing can be found here
C is primarily a disease of the vascular system and not the respiratory system, the main culprit is the spike protein. In Fact Myocarditis and Pericarditis is being reported following mRNA C – V. There has been 1,087 reported cases of Myocarditis and Pericarditis as of June 4th.
However, at this time, there is no Approved V that is currently in EUA throughout the world.
New Approach to V’s
mRNA v’s are a new type of v to protect against infectious diseases. To trigger an immune response, many v put a weakened or inactivated germ into our bodies, Not mRNA v. Instead, they teach our cells how to make a protein—or even just a piece of a protein—that triggers an immune response inside our bodies. That immune response, which produces antibodies, is what protects us from getting infected if the real virus enters our bodies.
Not only do the Non Approved V’s contain Spike Proteins, they also contain Polyethylene Glycol (PEG), which is the most common plastic in use today. It is a polymer, primarily used for packaging. PEG is being questioned as the possible culprit for anaphylaxis after vaccination.

Pine 🌲 Essential Oil is Steam Distilled from the needles of the tree.
Pine contains 7 different Chemical Compounds Classes and the main one is Monoterpenes.
In fact, Pine Essential Oil is roughly 80% Monoterpenes!
Therefore, it contains More Monoterpenes than Frankincense!
Monoterpenes are the balancing parts of an oil, the organizers and the peacemakers.
Pine was first investigated by Hippocrates for its benefits to the respiratory system. Pine shares many of the same properties as Eucalyptus Globulus and the action of both oils are enhanced when blended. Native Americans stuffed mattresses with pine needles to repel lice and fleas. Pine was used to treat lung infections and added to baths to revitalize those suffering from mental or emotional fatigue. Main uses of Pine EO are Throat/Lung/Sinus Infections, Rheumatism/Arthritis, Skin Parasites, and UTI’s.
Did you know that Pine Needles contain both Vitamin C and Shikimic Acid?
In fact Pine needles contain 3 to 6 times the amount of Vitamin C of an orange as well as various amino acids.
The nutritional need of a full grown man is just under 100mg vitamin C a day.
So eating an average Orange a day is about 80% of your vitamin C requirement.
“USDA Forestry Service Research Note SE-124 “Seasonal changes in carbohydrates and ascorbic acid of white pine and possible relation to Tipburn sensitivity” found an Ascorbic acid range of 0.72 to 1.87mg/g
Pine needles also more Shikimic Acid than Star Anise (Used in Tamiflu) which some use to protect against viral aliments.
Shikimic acid is used as a precursor for the synthesis of oseltamivir phosphate (Tamiflu®), which is used as an anti-viral for the H5N1 strain. As concern for this virus increases, demand for medicinal products capable of treating it increases, while shikimic acid resources remain limited. In this study, for the first time shikimic acid is extracted from pine needles using water at relatively low temperature. After the subsequent evaporation, column adsorption/desorption and crystallization processes, shikimic acid crystals with a purity of over 98 % are obtained. A total recovery of approximately 85 % is reached, with the highlights of the method being simplicity, low cost and industrial practicality.” Citings can be found Here

Native American Medicine
The Nations of the Adirondacks (meaning “tree eaters”) ate the inner bark of White Pines (Pinus strobus) as one of their primary winter foods. During the first winter in the “New World”, many colonists died of scurvy, caused by a severe lack of vitamin C. Native American’s offered the recipe of pine needle tea. (Weed) Pine needles are now known to manufacture large concentrations of vitamins A and C. “It has been estimated that a cupful of strong pine needle tea has more vitamin C than the average lemon.” (Vitale) Boiled mashed inner bark, and pine tar salve was used to heal injuries. Dried needles were placed in open jars to sweeten home environments.
Essential oil of pine is classified as a “middle note”; that is, its energetic effect is neither stimulating nor sedating, but rather it works to regulate and modify out of balance conditions. (Yuen) Applications include use on acupressure points and drops in hot water to create medicinal vapors. Pine oil is effective in treating diseases of the upper and lower respiratory tract, and for rheumatic and neuralgic ailments. (Blumenthal, American Botanical Council)
Current Scientific Research
The Agricultural Research Database notes the following area of research in uses of White Pine (Pinus strobus).
Antitussive, Burn, Demulcent, Diuretic, Dysentery, Expectorant, Itch, Laxative, Myalgia, Rheumatism, Swelling, and Wound.
Research now in process is investigating the use of stanol esters derived from pine trees to reduce total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. (Herb Research Foundation, The Tan Sheet, June 5, 2000.)
Actions: Antiseptic, Decongestant, Disinfectant, Expectorant, Tonic.” Citing can be found HERE
“There is a direct relationship between Suramin (the isolated extract), pine needle tea (a hot water extract of the pine, fir, cedar, and spruce needles), and pine oil (which is derived from the needles though an essential oil steam distillation process). All three are derived from the properties of the conifer needle.” Citing can be found HERE
“Compared to the earlier highly pathogenic SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has much greater transmissibility and has therefore caused a pandemic rather than a local outbreak. Suramin is a drug that has been used to treat African sleeping sickness and river blindness for over a hundred years. Suramin has also been shown to be an inhibitor against a wide variety of viruses, including Zika and Chikungunya viruses, indicating its diverse mechanisms of action against multiple viruses.
For instance, it can prevent viral attachment, entry, and release from host cells by its interactions with viral capsid proteins. Recent research has shown it to be an in vitro inhibitor of SARS-CoV-2 infection in cell culture by preventing viral entry. The current study shows this to be due to its potent inhibition of SARS-CoV-2 RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp), an essential viral lifecycle enzyme. Suramin is 20 or more times as powerful as remdesivir, which is the only currently approved anti-COVID-19 drug.” Citing can be found HERE
