Fake news has been permeating our society even more in the past few years, and the COVID-19 pandemic is no exception. Dr. Steven Hotze, founder & CEO of the Hotze Health & Wellness Center and President of the American Academy of Biologically Identical Hormone Therapy, explains what's going on with the virus, how it could lead to fewer deaths worldwide, and what scares him most about our current situation.
Dr. Hotze is the bestselling author of Hypothyroidism, Health & Happiness: The Riddle of Illness Revealed and Hormones, Health, and Happiness: A Natural Medical Formula for Rediscovering Youth with Bioidentical Hormones.
Here is the letter Dr. Hotze sent to President Donald Trump in regards to the response to COVID-19:
April 8, 2020
President Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20500
Dear Mr. President,
Please receive my kind regards which I extend you with this letter. Thank you for your strong leadership.
With this correspondence I would like to urge you to get Americans back to work.
There is no need to lock down our country, close businesses and churches, or quarantine our citizens. The COVID-19 pales in significance when compared to the other causes of disease and death in the U.S. and worldwide.
Since graduating from the University of Texas in Houston in 1976, the medical centers which I have owned have treated over 40,000 patients. In 1989 I established the Hotze Health & Wellness Center in Houston, Texas, which promotes natural approaches to ensure that our patients obtain and maintain health and wellness without pharmaceutical drugs. The goals that I have with each one of our patients is to enable them to 1) strengthen their immune system and 2) increase their energy level.
It is from my 44 years of clinical experience that I make the following observations and recommendations.
The treatment cannot be worse than the disease.
It appears that the current strategy for the coronavirus situation is a shot gun approach which is causing a tremendous amount of collateral damage. It seems that your advisors do not understand the cost risk benefit equation. By declaring an all-out war on a viral infection that pales in significance when compared to the major causes of disease and death in the world and in the United States, they have destroyed, in three weeks, the tremendous economy that you helped build over the past three years.
If we spent the same amount of time, money and effort that we have spent on this coronavirus situation, educating our citizens on how to obtain and maintain health and wellness naturally, without pharmaceutical drugs, then we could dramatically reduce the morbidity and mortality rate of numerous diseases, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes, cancer, and diabetes.
This all-out war, shot gun approach, toward stopping the coronavirus infections, has led to the lock down of businesses, churches, schools and public events, and to the quarantining of the population. This has destroyed the tremendous economy that developed under your leadership and caused a huge amount of collateral damage to our fellow countrymen.
Ten million individuals have already lost their jobs in the first two weeks of shutting down the economy.
St. Louis Fed President James Bullard said the coronavirus economic freeze could cost 47 million jobs and send the unemployment rate past 32%, according to St. Louis Fed projections.
Millions of businesses and individuals are on the verge of bankruptcy.
As the CEO of Hotze Health & Wellness Center in Houston, Texas, and as the CEO of Conservative Republicans of Texas, I have been communicating with over 150,000 individuals through my social media platforms, specifically, my Facebook accounts, Hotze Health and CRTX News. The biggest concern my followers have is about the unwarranted destruction of their businesses and their jobs, as well as the loss of their constitutional liberties.
The government employed health bureaucrats, the fake news media, conventional medicine gurus, and the socialist politicians, have created irrational fear, mass hysteria and panic among the public. This is leading us down the path of national economic suicide that will have enormous adverse public health and economic consequences for many years to come.
Unfortunately, the government health bureaucrats have little or no clinical experience in treating patients, and yet they are making unilateral, monumental decisions about the direction we are taking with the coronavirus situation. Not one of them has talked about how individuals can strengthen their immune systems by eating healthy, taking vitamin and mineral supplementation, exercising daily and having a good night’s sleep.
When I appeared on the National Fox News Coronavirus Update on Sunday, March 15th, I encouraged the listening audience to strengthen their immune system by following my ABCDZ immune system program. Vitamins A, B Complex, C, D, and Zinc are essential to strengthening the immune system.
Please allow me to underscore my key point. There is no need to lock down our country, close businesses and churches, or quarantine our citizens. The COVID-19 pales in significance when compared to the other causes of disease and death in the U.S. and worldwide.
The rifle approach, which I recommend, is simple. It would encourage the infirm and debilitated elderly, and those with preexisting health conditions to sequester themselves, until herd immunity can be built among the rest of society.
Every healthy person should go back to work and build that herd immunity.
With this correspondence I have enclosed my April 2020 Hotze Healthy Living newsletter, entitled The Coronavirus Issue. I have also enclosed my lawsuit against Harris County Judge, Lina Hidalgo’s order banning church services. In this lawsuit, I make the case that the coronavirus situation does not rise to the point that our First Amendment constitutional rights of worship and peaceable assembly can be infringed upon or denied. Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai is my expert witness, and he has written an affidavit that challenges the current approach to the coronavirus situation. He is a world-renowned immune system expert who received his doctorate from M.I.T. in biological engineering. Dr. Shiva’s affidavit is included.
Thank you for having called for a National Day of Prayer on Sunday, March 15, 2020.
As Christians, rather than being fearful, we should be confident, because we place our trust in our Sovereign God and in His divine providence, especially in times of adversity. “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and love, and a sound mind.” – 2 Timothy 1:7
We should demonstrate the courage of our Christian, Biblical convictions. When the world is in bedlam and hysteria is the order of the day, we can place our trust in the Lord God of Hosts and face the future with confidence and equanimity. We should claim this promise from His word for ourselves, our families, and friends. “No evil will befall me, nor any plague enter my tent.” – Psalm 91:10
Mr. President, thank you for your bold leadership.
Let’s get Americans back to work and Make America Great Again.
With much admiration for your leadership, I am,
Your obedient servant,
Steven F. Hotze, M.D.
