Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?

My life was excellent. I'm an athlete - a very active hiker, backpacker, kayaker and snowboarder. I was a Respiratory Therapist working with Covid patients.

Q: Would you like to share your reasons for getting vaccinated?

I was mandated as a healthcare worker and my immunologist would not give me an exemption, since I am not religious and was not allergic to the 4 ingredients in the vax.

Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?

Immediate palpitations and dizziness that got worse hours after the vax. I also developed neurological symptoms, fatigue, brain fog, paresthesia, hallucinations, weakness, GERD, two ER visits, and 5 urgent care visits. I ended up having side effects from beta blockers. 5 month ordeal.

Q: What is your life like now, after getting the vaccine?

It took a month to slowly work back up to hiking after first vaccine omeprazole got me back on my feet and my doctor prescribed additional steroids to get the second vaccine which helped with fatigue, but my heart got worse in November, and I got put on beta blockers in December after having tachycardia. My life is still not the same, although homeopathic remedies allow me to eat, sleep, and work.

Q: Have you had Covid before? What was your experience if so?

I work with Covid patients and only got Covid (1/26/22) AFTER I got the vaccine. I was fully vaccinated and fully sick.

Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:

All doctors deny it could be from the vaccine.

I have been to:

  • ER twice

    • providence Everett WA

  • Urgent care 5 times

  • Two ND visits

    • Snohomish

    • & Everett, WA

  • Multiple phone visits

    • cardiology

    • gastroenterology

    • primary care.

    • Kaiser Everett & Bellevue, WA

I was treated poorly by medical staff from the get go. One of my jobs - my boss wants me to quit. Naturopaths helped me and I now have a definitive diagnosis thanks to a doctor in California.

Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?

Carbo veg

Arsenicum Album



Vit d B12




Keto diet

Q: Where has your reaction been reported?

Reported early on to VAERS.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

How debilitating and chronic is this condition. Every minute of every day for over 6 months now. I can’t function normally and there’s no real cure.

I am almost fully recovered now. The remedies and supplements only got me half way back but the two drugs maraviroc and pravastatin did the trick for sure. It took 6 months to get the medicine and total I spent $11,000 to get there. Insurance would only cover the pravastatin. The maraviroc was filled by a friend pharmacist no other pharmacy would fill my prescription. I am back to hiking, biking and sleeping very well. I hope to go snowboarding this winter for sure!!! Thanks to Dr. Bruce Patterson and his chronic covid team.

Steve, I just want you to know you are not alone. As a fellow vaccine injured victim, I created a FB support group. If you need anything, please let me know. I hope to help as many people as I can just like us through support, resources, education, and anything else to help them through this journey with so many others that I am bringing together to support those like us. Sending prayers and hugs. Cat

Thank You! The Patterson group cured me. I just have one more consult to go over my final blood test.

Quite ironic that the only way to resume basic functions has been through homeopathic remedies!

Would have paid to have a little spiritual faith, as opposed to investing all faith in the cult of scientism and their quack high priests. Try telling your doctor that your injuries are from the vaccine and that you're quite sure the homeopathic remedies are helping you. You'll earn a one-way ticket straight to the loony bin!

I convinced my primary doc after my blood test came back positive for long covid. I am cured now after getting the correct dosage and combination of drugs. The remedies and supplements did help me function but I was still getting relapses and I had to keep taking more of those and it became an expensive and endless cycle.
