Athletes & The Spike

You may be very health - but are you INFLAMED?

John Campbell interviews 29-year-old Kyle Warner who is a former champion mountain bike racer and who also has a very large online audience.

He recently went public with his COVID-19 vaccine injury, and Dr. Campbell does an incredible job of discussing just what he has had to go through to receive help from skeptical doctors who do not want to admit COVID-19 vaccine injuries exist.

Kyle also shares what has helped him and what has not, in his effort to overcome his COVID-19 vaccine injury which has resulted in diagnoses of Pericarditis and Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).

Kyle talks about his support group, and how some of them have already committed suicide, highlighting the overwhelming need right now to provide help and support to these COVID-19 vaccine damaged people.


Why would someone so apparently healthy, have such an adverse reaction to the Jab / Spike? It's quite simple, actually, and it may have more to do with timing than anything else. Exercise is extremely inflammatory.

Here is a snapshot of some labs from a very healthy participant. This young man just did back-to-back 100 mile gravel bike races. The labs were obtained 4 days later. As you can see, creatine kinase is very elevated.

"As is well known, intense exercise often injures muscle tissue, causing CK to be released into the bloodstream. Although the increase in CK levels is usually moderate (three to five times higher than normal), an increase of up to 100 times above normal is occasionally seen in runners at the end of a marathon. Our laboratory technicians have already observed a CK level of 1,000 times higher than normal in a healthy young woman who had decided to get back in shape!"

After a muscle is injured, it takes a certain amount of time for CK levels to return to normal. They should decrease by half every 36 hours. For example, a level that is 100 times higher (about 15,000 U/L) will take 10 days or so to return to normal."

"Why should you limit exercise before a blood test?"

More importantly - why should you avoid the Spike while you are still inflamed?

"Above-normal CK results may indicate a problem. A variety of conditions are likely to damage muscle cells and release CK into the bloodstream. These include muscular dystrophy, toxic reactions to certain drugs, hyperthermia (high fever) and hypothyroidism.

The cause can also be an accident or trauma where a muscle is crushed, a surgical procedure where a muscle is severed, or an intramuscular injection. Myocardial infarction also releases CK into the blood when the tissue, including the muscles that make up the heart, dies from lack of oxygen.

When CK levels are at least 10 times higher than normal, we call this “rhabdomyolysis,” a clinical condition that can involve severe complications. Myoglobin and potassium released from damaged muscle cells are mainly responsible for this condition. Excessive myoglobin levels are toxic to the kidneys and can lead to acute renal failure, while high potassium levels can lead to heart rhythm problems.

Consequently, a high CK level may be a legitimate concern for your health care professional, who will need to determine whether it is rhabdomyolysis with risk of complications, another condition (genetic disease, heart attack, hypothyroidism, etc.) or an increase in post-exercise CK with no clinical consequences.

To make it easier to interpret your CK results, we recommend that you follow the instructions before having a blood sample taken, including advice to restrict your exercise. It may even be relevant to note the type and intensity of exercise in the days preceding the test. This reminder could be very useful when you see your health care professional again, sometimes a few weeks later, to discuss the results."


The shrewd Dr. Mercola told me he never takes a blood test within 24 hours of vigorous exercise. However, I'm sure even he doesn't get a creatine kinase. I developed Afib from Lyme Disease while going through high stress and training for an Ironman event. I hadn't been bitten by a tick in over a decade.


Here is more information on creatine kinase from our lab report - if you ordered the Spike Risk and Prognosis lab panel

Creatine kinase (CK), also known as creatine phosphokinase (CPK) or phosphocreatine kinase, is an enzyme expressed by various tissues and cell types. CK catalyses the conversion of creatine and uses adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to create phosphocreatine and adenosine diphosphate (ADP). Clinically, creatine kinase is assayed in blood tests as a marker of damage of CK-rich tissue. Aberrant CK levels may impair cell viability under normal or stressed conditions and induce cell death. The involvement of CK in cell cycle regulation and cellular energy metabolism makes it a potential diagnostic biomarker and therapeutic target in cancer. Source: "Practice of Toxicologic Pathology"

Spike Risk Reference Range: 32 - 150 U/L


If you are athletic - what do you do?

  • Plenty of rest

  • Measure your resting heart rate regularly and develop a training program (intensity and duration) around your heart rate - not the calendar.

  • Avoid stress - meditate

  • Stretch and get a massage to rid yourself of toxins

  • Avoid carbs and inflammatory Omega-6 oils

  • Drink bone broth and other mineralized drinks

  • Don't fall off your bike at 30 miles an hour like I did yesterday.

  • Don't get the Spike within 4 days - or more - of strenuous exercise

  • And - of course - take in lots of cod liver oil to reduce the inflammation.
