In Defense of Dr. Stella Immanuel

In case you missed it, we were able to obtain an exclusive interview with Dr. Stella Immanuel the week prior to her going viral with her famous speech on the steps of the Supreme Court on Monday, July 27.

Within days we had almost 30,000-page views from the community and all over the world. I even had one college professor from the University of Cincinnati demand that we post a retraction to our story because she was a “quack.”

You would think that she stood there all alone, but I seemed to notice that there were about 30 other doctors standing there with Dr. Immanuel in that same press conference. All were using a similar treatment program as was she. In fact, Beverly Hills doctor Daniel Wallace, M.D., who treats patients at Cedars Sinai, and the world’s foremost doctor in his field of Lupus, uses the same treatment program on patients as does Dr. Stella Immanuel.

So, my question for you is this: Why is the media doing everything that it can to destroy Dr. Immanuel and hydroxychloroquine? My answer is that everything in today’s society has been politicized, from sports, science, to the weather, education and now, even medicine. Our article was never intended to be political in nature.

Every doctor has to take the Hippocratic Oath, with basically says, “I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant: I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.” 

Dr. Stella Immanuel is basically giving her patients the best care that she possibly can. You cannot dispute the fact that she has seen over 350 patients that were suffering from Covid-19, and to date, not one of them has died. Isn’t it a doctor’s responsibility to ensure that he or she has the best interest of her patients at heart? 

Some people say that hydroxychloroquine is dangerous, and that by publishing the article, we were complicit in harming patients who receive the treatment program that Dr. Stella Immanuel espouses. 

But a recent article published in the Washington Post debunks that myth. Others told us that since Dr. Stella Immanuel has outlandish beliefs in witchcraft and the demonic realm that she cannot be trusted. 

Truth be told, some of you might find some of my views radical. Pretty much everyone reading this article has views that others might consider “out there.” We all believe in some crazy stuff, but to us, it is not crazy. 

But what does any of this have to do with her treatment program for those who are sick with Covid-19? Absolutely nothing. You may dismiss her religious ideology, but her medical findings are backed by many more and deserve to be heard.
