The common Dandelion has a new role — a very important one.

Upon searching for an antidote that could help pregnant and breastfeeding moms with the possible transmission of the spike protein from the covid experimental gene therapy (“vaccine”), I stumbled on something that excited me.

Dandelion Has Spike Protein Blocking Capability & Antiplatelet Action

An intriguing Science Direct study just released 1/11/21 found that the “common dandelion (T. officinaleblocks protein to protein interaction of spike S1 to the human ACE2 cell surface receptor.” 

This means infection of the lung cells using SARS-CoV-2 was efficiently prevented by a water-based dandelion extract (basically a tea).

On 11th March 2020, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, was declared as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). To date, there are rapidly spreading new “variants of concern” of SARS-CoV-2, the United Kingdom (B.1.1.7), the South African (B.1.351), or Brasilian (P.1) variant. All of them contain multiple mutations in the ACE2 receptor recognition site of the spike protein, compared to the original Wuhan sequence, which is of great concern, because of their potential for immune escape.

Here we report on the efficacy of common dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) to block protein-protein interaction of spike S1 to the human ACE2 cell surface receptor. This could be shown for the original spike D614 and its mutant forms (D614G, N501Y, and mix of K417N, E484K, N501Y) in human HEK293-hACE2 kidney and A549-hACE2-TMPRSS2 lung cells. High molecular weight compounds in the water-based extract account for this effect. Infection of the lung cells using SARS-CoV-2 spike pseudotyped lentivirus particles was efficiently prevented by the extract and so was virus-triggered pro-inflammatory interleukin 6 secretion. Modern herbal monographs consider the usage of this medicinal plant as safe. Thus, the in vitro results reported here should encourage further research on the clinical relevance and applicability of the extract as a prevention strategy for SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Significance statement SARS-CoV-2 is steadily mutating during continuous transmission among humans. This might eventually lead the virus into evading existing therapeutic and prophylactic approaches aimed at the viral spike. We found effective inhibition of protein-protein interaction between the human virus cell entry receptor ACE2 and SARS-CoV-2 spike, including five relevant mutations, by water-based common dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) extracts. This was shown in vitro using human kidney (HEK293) and lung (A549) cells, overexpressing the ACE2 and ACE2/TMPRSS2 protein, respectively. Infection of the lung cells using SARS-CoV-2 pseudotyped lentivirus was efficiently prevented by the extract. The results deserve a more in-depth analysis of dandelions’ effectiveness in SARS-CoV-2 prevention and now require confirmatory clinical evidence. (Read the full study report)

The Ultimate Survival Medicine Guide

It also means that dandelion tea used in moderation in pregnancy could possibly prevent miscarriage by blocking the spike protein from cross-reacting against syncytin, which is vital in pregnancy.

“Syncytins are physiologically expressed during pregnancy: they intervene in the development of the placenta, trophoblast differentiation, the implantation of the embryo in the mother’s uterus, and the immunosuppression of the mother’s immune system to prevent rejection of the embryo. Because of the similarity between syncytins and the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19 vaccine-induced antibody responses could trigger a cross-reaction against syncytins, causing allergic, cytotoxic, and/or autoimmune adverse effects affecting reproduction.” ~Roxana Bruno, Biochemistry Ph.D. in Immunology (source)

This is exactly what Dr. Michael Yeadon and others warned: that there is plausible evidence that spike proteins in the mRNA vaccines SHED or transmit and thus trigger an immune reaction against syncytin-1, “an essential prerequisite for a successful pregnancy.”

Specifically, Whelan was concerned that the new mRNA vaccine technology utilized by Pfizer and Moderna has “the potential to cause microvascular injury (inflammation and small blood clots called microthrombi) to the brain, heart, liver, and kidneys in ways that were not assessed in the safety trials.

While Whelan did not dispute the vaccines’ potential to quickly arrest the spread of the virus (assuming that the vaccines prove to actually prevent transmission — also not assessed in the clinical trials), he cautioned that “it would be vastly worse if hundreds of millions of people were to suffer long-lasting or even permanent damage to their brain or heart microvasculature as a result of failing to appreciate in the short-term an unintended effect of full-length spike protein-based vaccines on other organs.

Unfortunately, Whelan’s concerns were not acknowledged, and the agency instead relied on the limited clinical trial data. 

Another good thing: a Journal of Functional Foods study shows Common Dandelion root components safely exhibit anti-oxidative and antiplatelet action.

Basically, this tells us that the common dandelion herb blocks vascular damage-causing strokes, heart attacks, migraines, blood clots in covid patients and covid vaccine recipients!

With a word in the news about thousands of women reporting miscarriages, disrupted menstrual cycles, and abnormal bleeding, this is good news.

The Salk Institute recently revealed that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is what’s actually causing vascular damage in covid patients, promoting the strokes, heart attacks, migraines, blood clots, and other harmful reactions that have already killed thousands of Americans. 

Due to the assertion that dandelion extract is “antiplatelet” and blocks protein to protein interaction of spike S1 to the human ACE2 cell surface receptor, INCLUDING five relevant mutations/variants”could we infer from it that dandelion extract would also mitigate or prevent transmission of the spike protein?

Shikimic acid in fennel, star anise, and pine needles are also considered ways to help prevent the transmission of the spike protein, but they are considered unsafe for pregnant/nursing women. Check out my previous article about the pine needless antidote against the spike protein.

Evidence Dandelion is Helpful and Safe During all Stages of Pregnancy

In the last 30 years, herbal medicine has been vilified and censored. But utilized with skill and knowledge, it always proves better than man-made medicine.

The American Pregnancy Association lists dandelion greens as an iron-rich source ‘best food’ for pregnancy.

Midwives have recommended dandelion in their tea blends for hundreds of years. Here is one example: “dandelion is a digestive tonic, liver strengthener, helps the kidneys and bladder, and balances blood sugar balancing and blood pressure. Also iron deficiency anemia.” 

Midwive’s Favorite Herbs almost always includes dandelion in moderation – up to 1 cup a day.

About dandelion, Dr. Axe writes: “For women who are pregnant, getting enough vitamin A is very important, especially during the third trimester.”

How to Make Dandelion Tea & Dosage

Gather dandelion roots, leaves, and flowers from an unsprayed area. Or purchase online.

It’s very easy — follow Dr. Axe’s simple directions:

  • Steep one tablespoon of roots, leaves, or flowers in 6 ounces of boiled water for only 15-20 minutes so it is not too strong.
  • Strain the roots, leaves, and flowers, or drink them up with your tea.
  • This recipe can be multiplied for 3-4 days’ worth and kept in the refrigerator.

It is traditionally safe in pregnancy and often recommended in moderation at 1/2 – 1 cup a day.

Avoid drinking before bedtime as it increases urination.

For those not pregnant, moderation is less important. Here is why it is so good for you and some caveats.

Considered quite safe while breastfeeding.

Those allergic to ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigold, chamomile, yarrow, daisies, or iodine may not be able to consume it.

This is just another example of natural ‘medicine’ readily available and provided to us by a loving Creator.

“And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.” ~Genesis 1:29

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” ~ James 1: 5
