Judy A. Mikovits, PhD
Dr. Mikovits earned a BA in Chemistry from University of Virginia in 1980 and a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from George Washington University in 1992. In her forty-year quest to understand the causes, prevent and treat chronic diseases, she has co-authored seminal papers culminating at least a decade of research in four distinct fields: immunology, natural products chemistry, epigenetics, and HIV/AIDs drug development. In 2009 Dr. Mikovits led the team that first isolated and characterized a new family of human disease-associated retroviruses, XMRVs/HGRVS. Dr. Mikovits has co-authored more than fifty peer-reviewed publications and book chapters; holds patent # WO 2012061790 A1. “Combination Therapy for Prostate Cancer using Botanical Compositions and Bicalutamide”.
In 2016, the formation of M.A.R.C. Inc., with colleague, Dr. Frank Ruscetti, has afforded Dr. Mikovits the opportunity to come full-circle back to her first love - natural products chemistry. In 2020 MARC Inc evolved to become Dr J Solutions, a company focused not only on education, but on providing solutions for prevention and treatment of autoimmune/auto-inflammatory diseases resulting from viral infection, drugs and environmental toxins. Her current focus and passion for natural products chemistry and plant-based drug therapies is mainly in the area of cannabis and cannabis-based compounds. Dr. Judy’s expertise in medical cannabis with breakthroughs in understanding of the pathophysiology of neuroimmune diseases as acquired endocannabinoid immune dysfunction (AEIDS) provides the pathway for sustainable health solutions.
Dr. Mikovits is a New York Times Best-selling author of the books, Plague, the Truth About Masks, Plague of Corruption, and Ending Plague – A Scholar’s Obligation in an Age of Corruption. Additionally, Dr. Mikovits starred in Plandemic, produced by Mikki Willis, which is the most seen film in modern history garnering more than two-billion views globally.
Dr. Mikovits is the Health Minister for Light Dove Ministries, a self-supporting ministry protecting its members to seek, and access, all manner of education, information, services, advice, council, and support consistent with religious and spiritual freedoms as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America, the constitutions of the individual states of the union, and the laws of the United States.
KENT HECKENLIVELY, ESQ.
Kent Heckenlively is a science teacher, attorney, and founding contributing editor of Age of Autism. The father of a daughter stricken with autism after her childhood vaccinations, Heckenlively has applied his exacting skills to explore the connect between childhood vaccines and autism.
I had become very intrigued by the story of Dr. Judy Mikovits and her investigation of retroviruses and their possible connection to chronic fatigue syndrome/ME as well as autism. In many ways I felt her story, especially the campaign of persecution against her, mirrored that of many other honest scientists who have looked for answers to the questions raised by these diseases.
That inquiry has resulted in Dr. Mikovits and I writing the book, “PLAGUE – One Scientists’ Intrepid Search for the Truth about Retroviruses, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism, and Other Diseases” to be published by Skyhorse Press on May 6 2014.
As an autism advocate, one of the things which has long drawn my attention is that so many of the mothers of children with autism have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome at one point, or like my wife, appear to have sub-clinical indications of the disorder.
I must confess that the two years I spent writing PLAGUE have changed many of my views. I’ve been deeply impressed by the humanity and compassion of many scientists, while at the same time have become more keenly aware of the political and financial obstacles which prevent scientists from making the type of contributions to the well-being of society that they imagined at the beginning of their careers.
If there is one wish I have it is that this book may work its way past the defenses of those who have armored themselves against our concerns and bring about true understanding. I believe that the desire for truth and to lend assistance to those in need is so much stronger than fear and indifference.
Call it a spell, call it a prayer, but my hope for the book, PLAGUE is that it helps many to “understand” some of the critical issues raised by these diseases. If we honestly look at these problems, I believe the answers can be found much quicker than anybody realizes.
