A question about vaccine-induced myocarditis came through via my contact page. But the questioner’s email address was incorrect. So when I tried to respond, my message bounced.
Here’s her question: “If someone has received the vaccine because it was mandated by the school—has shown no symptoms related to myocarditis—is there a way for that person to check that they are one of the ‘lucky ones’? And if there is myocarditis, is there any way to reverse that at all?”
Since my answer about vaccine-induced myocarditis didn’t go through, I am posting it here.
First a caveat: I’m not a medical doctor. I am a science writer, health journalist, and researcher. So, I can’t give medical advice via the internet and nothing on this website should be construed as such.
How Do You Test For Vaccine-Induced Myocarditis?
However, I interviewed Dr. Angelina Farella, M.D., who was speaking at the same conference I was in Sedona, Arizona, a few weeks ago. As I explained in this article for The Epoch Times, Farella told me that she will no longer sign sports clearance forms for her pediatric patients without families doing bloodwork to look for heart abnormalities.
Farella recommends two blood tests to get a baseline about heart health and physical fitness. These tests may also reveal asymptomatic vaccine injury and vaccine-induced myocarditis.
What is d-dimer?
As the Cleveland Clinic explains, “A D-dimer test is a simple blood test that can help your healthcare provider determine if you may have a blood clotting condition. If you have a high level of D-dimer in your blood, your provider may have you undergo further blood tests and/or imaging procedures to determine a diagnosis.”
What is troponin?
Troponins are a type of proteins found in heart muscle. When they’re present in the bloodstream, it can be a marker of heart failure. High troponins are also an indication of myocarditis.
Vaccine-induced myocarditis may not become apparent for weeks or even months after the injections.
Consider the research done by scientists in the Department of Pediatrics at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Published in November 2021 in the journal Pediatrics, this research found a link between mRNA vaccines and heart problems in teenagers.
In the Washington study, young people aged 12 to 17 years old who presented with chest pain within one week after the second dose of the mRNA vaccines had higher than normal levels of troponin in their blood.
In March 2022, the same team published a follow-up study. This follow-up looked at a young patients diagnosed with vaccine-induced myocarditis after the second dose of the Pfizer mRNA vaccines. Unfortunately, almost 69 percent still had abnormal heart findings on cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. The abnormalities were present up to eight months following vaccination, and without having other clinical symptoms.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
The other way to check for myocarditis is more elaborate and involves 3 days of a restricted diet and the use of radioactive dye (gadolinium contrast medium). Magnetic resonance imaging is a medical technique that uses radio waves.
However, while an MRI may be the most accurate, it’s also the most invasive. So, a doctor will likely not order an MRI unless a vaccine-injured patient is showing clinical symptoms of myocarditis.
What do I do if I have vaccine-induced myocarditis?
The second part of my reader’s question was what to do if a test comes back positive.
First of all, myocarditis is horrible. A loved one suffers from this condition, as I mentioned in this article on patient advocacy. In addition, it can be very acute and difficult to resolve.
That said, several forward-thinking holistic-minded doctors have pioneered protocols to help their COVID-19 vaccine-injured patients heal.
In particular, eating a plant-forward pesticide and herbicide-free diet, inducing autophagocytosis by doing 3-day water-only fasts (unless counter-indicated), and supplementing with the right nutraceuticals may help jumpstart the body’s natural ability to heal.
Using autophagocytosis to repair the body at the cellular level was the subject of Dr. Henry Ealy’s outstanding presentation in Sedona, which you can access for free on Rumble.
