January 11, 2021 - What To Do In The First Moments When One Feels A Cold, Flu, or COVID Coming On - By: Dr. Mark Sircus -
"My work to help people is to educate them to use ICU and emergency room natural medicines to make them stronger. It surprises people to discover that substances like magnesium, sodium bicarbonate, iodine, selenium, and even vitamin C and D, when used at high dosages, are employed by doctors to save peoples’ lives in critical medical emergencies. These same substances can also be used at high dosages every day to treat chronic diseases and even to head infections off at the pass when symptoms first appear.
Yesterday, for example, I came back from Brasilia here in Brazil and woke up with what felt like the beginning of a respiratory infection. I felt a tightness in my chest, some phlegm, and a slight cough. I even felt a tightness in my upper back. What did I do after my morning mediation? I drank several water glasses with bicarbonates and iodine, took ten milligrams of special lipid-based selenium, 50,000 units of Vitamin D, and 300 milligrams of magnesium chloride. One hour later, sitting here, I am feeling all clear in my lungs.
My wife thought it would be better to say something like respiratory discomfort because the word "infection" signifies an already an installed disease. For me, the first moments of respiratory distress are when a virus is just touching down in one’s system. That would be the accepted view of viral infections, but others like detox and emotional reactions speak of something else.
When infections start, I had always advocated doing breathing exercises using consciousness to clear things when first feeling symptoms, which always worked for me. Today I forgot that and did things differently.
For sure, I would take off my mask though I rarely use one living as I do deep in nature. The last thing one wants to do when fighting off an infection is to cut down on one’s oxygen inhalation, which is exactly what masks do if used for a long enough time. Yet when these above defensive interventions do not work, it is time to contemplate more serious interventions.
My sincere belief is that most COVID deaths result from medical malpractice, which in this case is the refusal of mainstream medicine and the medical media to look at and accept that which works. For some profound reasons, it seems that the correct way of treating COVID-19 is to employ a combination of one of two anti-parasite drugs and a spectrum of natural agents.
Dallas, Texas-based doctors report they have drastically slash death rates among COVID-19 Coronavirus patients with telemedicine and home care. Hospitalization was only needed in 1.9% of 922 treated patients. This study was published in the December 30 issue of Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine.
Doctors initially used an array of treatments that included an antibiotic and either zinc, hydroxychloroquine, or ivermectin. For more severe patients, clinic visits for intravenous magnesium, vitamin B1 (thiamine), plus other oral B vitamins and nebulized medication were employed and considered safe and feasible.
So many interesting things being said about COVID, including a possible reason why hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin have been reported to work so well. However, everything reflecting on a lack of need for the new experimental COVID vaccines is being censored. A pivotal role in any illness is surely the availability of treatments to resolve a condition before things go critical and need ICU care. Still, in the west, panic is inflamed by denying the public knowledge of such treatments.
In India, she is a gynecologist. He is a surgeon. They are married and both 77 years old. In mid-November, they were diagnosed with COVID-19, first her, then him. She took the drug hydroxychloroquine. He took ivermectin. They are both well now – walking, golfing, doing yoga — seven weeks later.
The couple’s brush with COVID might have ended very differently. In the United States, patients 75 to 84 years old die at 220 times the rate of adults under 30. But these two elderly, otherwise healthy physicians live in India. They were able to get early home treatment that is virtually, and unconscionably, unheard of in many western countries.
California Reports Record COVID Cases and Deaths—Despite Strict Lockdown -
Sadly, but perhaps predictably, government regulations do not appear to be slowing down the coronavirus. Lockdowns, masks, and social distancing have only worked to make people and businesses suffer. We also read the headline: ‘New Study Shows Mask Mandates Had Zero Effect in Florida or Nationwide, But the Lie Continues.’ Our beloved overlords have sold masking as a low-cost, easy 'solution' that does not work except to hurt children and muzzle adults.
The point is we need things that do work. Doctors say that we do not need dangerous experimental vaccines or lockdown measures destroying the very fabric of life. And the CDC is on record speaking about face masks – '14 randomized controlled trials did not support a substantial effect on transmission. There is limited evidence for their effectiveness in preventing influenza virus transmission either when worn by the infected person for source control or when worn by uninfected persons to reduce exposure. Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on the transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.'
And look below at this graph showing the difference between South Dakota (no mask mandate) vs. Montana (mask mandate).
But we all know that medical authorities like Dr. Antony Fauci are not interested in real information as they make it up as they go along and lie when they need to. It is a good time to go back to medical basics, but that is the absolute last thing health officials are interested in doing. In the end, they are vaccine salesmen, and like in many products; they are not the least bit interested if they are safe or not.
Emergency Report: The Ron Paul Institute reported this morning: ‘A Nursing Home had Zero Coronavirus Deaths. Then, It Vaccinates Residents for Coronavirus and the Deaths Begin.’ Since vaccination began 24 coronavirus-infected residents at the 300-bed nursing home have died. Is the timing just a strange coincidence? The nursing home began vaccinating residents Dec. 22.
Covid-19 vaccines have not been tested in the frail elderly, many of whom are residents of long-term care facilities. Therefore, there is NO evidence that the vaccine is safe or effective for the elderly. Jon Rappoport says, 'If this doesn’t give the frail and elderly and their families pause for thought, nothing will.'"*

June 12, 2020 - "Deficiencies or insufficiencies in micronutrients negatively affect immune function and can decrease resistance to infections." - Rhonda Patrick, PhD. -
"Nutrition plays an essential role in immune function. ... many people lack essential vitamins and minerals, which must be obtained from our diets since we cannot make them. Several vitamins, including vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and folate; and trace elements, including zinc, iron, selenium, magnesium, and copper, play important and complementary roles in supporting both the innate and adaptive immune systems. Deficiencies or insufficiencies in micronutrients negatively affect immune function and can decrease resistance to infections.
Vitamin A -
Vitamin A is important for the maturation of various cells of the innate immune system. Vitamin A deficiency can impair protective barriers such as the skin and mucosal layers, can impair the response to vaccination, and might predispose people to respiratory infections.
Vitamin C -
Vitamin C is highly concentrated in immune cells, where it serves as a potent antioxidant. Vitamin C also appears to boost the immune system by promoting the proliferation of T cells and preventing T cell death. T cells play a major role in driving an immune response against pathogens such as bacteria or viruses.
Vitamin D -
Vitamin D is a steroid hormone that serves as a major regulator of immune function and plays a particularly important role in preventing respiratory tract infections. Vitamin D activates the innate immune system, which elicits an early antiviral response. The vitamin binds to receptors on neutrophils, macrophages, and natural killer cells and stimulates them to produce microbial peptides that have antiviral activity. Vitamin D also increases T-regulatory cells, which play a major role in keeping the immune system in check, particularly when it comes to autoimmune diseases. Vitamin D inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which can play a role in a cytokine storm — a serious complication of COVID-19.
Deficiency of the trace element zinc is rare in the United States, although up to 45 percent of people 60 years and older have inadequate zinc intake. People who consume alcohol or follow a vegetarian diet might require more zinc. Studies indicate that mild zinc deficiency can decrease immune function, including dysfunctional cytokine production in T cells and absence of CT4+ T cell regeneration. A randomized controlled trial reported that older adults were less likely to contract pneumonia if they took a multivitamin containing zinc. Another meta-analysis found that people who supplemented with zinc acetate lozenges had a three-fold faster recovery rate from the common cold compared to those who took a placebo.
The omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA, and docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, support an effective immune system by helping to resolve inflammation after an infection has subsided. Deficiencies in these micronutrients can delay this response, which could be important in the cytokine storm seen with severe COVID-19 patients. Preclinical models illustrate how EPA and DHA are converted into specialized pro-resolving mediators that are associated with protection against acute lung injury."

April 11, 2020 - The Importance of Iodine and Oxygen Amidst the Coronavirus Crisis -
"... given all the panic and fear surrounding COVID-19, it is important to revisit some health fundamentals right now – specifically iodine and oxygen.
Iodine is a very important mineral, the only halogen that the body needs. However, if you don’t have enough, the body grabs chemically similar elements (the other halogens: fluorine, chlorine and bromine), all of which are toxic. If you have too much of these, you will get sick. Have you noticed how some nations are spraying chloride bleach on everything in reaction to the supposed killer virus, thus exposing you to more chloride? Also, the 6 GHz frequency (used in many wireless phones, routers and other devices) affects your iodine absorption. One symptom of iodine deficiency is respiratory distress (also a symptom of COVID-19). Iodine deficiency is also implicated in cancer.
5G is undeniably connected to the coronavirus, but we still don’t exactly understand how. 5G was first rolled out in Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the outbreak. However, not everyone around 5G is getting sick. One possible cause is the new frequency band it will be using (60 GHz or WiGig which is the new name for 60GHz Wi-Fi). Just as the 6 GHz frequency affects iodine absorption, the 60 GHz frequency affects oxygen absorption. In fact, the 60 GHz frequency attenuates or weakens the oxygen molecule. This can lead to O2 molecules not binding so easily to hemoglobin – meaning you don’t take in as much oxygen. This leads to under-oxygenation or hypoxia, the forerunner to disease. Again, just as with iodine, a symptom of oxygen deficiency is respiratory distress (also a symptom of COVID-19).
Hmm … it’s almost as if this virus is providing the perfect excuse and acting as a scapegoat for the toxic chemicals and EMF which are damaging us long-term all the time …
If Viruses Can’t Cross Species, Bodies or Be ‘Caught’, Then What Happens When One Person Appears to ‘Catch’ the Flu from Someone Else?
This is the key question. If viruses really are completely different than what almost all of us have been taught to believe, how can we explain apparent viral contagions or viral infections? Are they real? Well, certainly many people have experienced getting sick right after being around other people who were sick. The real issue is how? One possible answer is that the terrain of the recipient was lowered at the point of infection, whether because they were worried or anxious they would get sick (fear lowers the immune system), had the thought they would get sick (and unconsciously gave that thought power) or developed some kind of emotional entrainment or frequency match with the sick person. It’s all about creating a frequency lock. In life, we all have strong and weak moments; in those weaker moments we become more susceptible to disease. The great genius Nikola Tesla said that 'The day that science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” He also said that “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.'
Possible ways we may get sick include exposure to toxins, mental causes, emotional causes, renewal/detoxification or via shock. Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer (founder of German New Medicine) established that 'every disease is caused by a conflict shock that catches an individual completely off guard' and made it his first biological law."
March 24, 2020 - Co2 - A Quintessential in Body Chemistry -
"CO2 in the form of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is widely available in practically every drug store and supermarket in the world. With it one can attack viruses at their most vulnerable point, which is their sensitivity to changes in pH. CO2 is also available in great amounts inside the body because each and every cell creates it to survive. Hold your breath and CO2 levels in the blood instantly rise. This is an extremely healthy thing to do."
This blog-writer has developed his own rhythmic vitalizing breathing technique that includes holding the breath on both peaks of inhalation and exhalation.
"Taking sodium bicarbonate orally or bathing in a tub saturated with it results in a shift of the body’s pH to less acidic and more alkaline. That is because baking soda is an electron donor. As the pH rises, so does cellular voltage and cellular oxygen levels.
Low or blocked oxidation is normally followed by fermentation of sugar in cells, which then leads to the primary condition upon which cancer, infectious and inflammatory processes feed. Viruses are “anaerobic” creatures, which thrive in the absence of oxygen, and like cancer cells, they love sugar because of the acidic and inflammatory conditions high sugar consumption brings.
Sugar turns the body into a suitable breeding ground for viruses, bacteria, fungi and cancer. The more sugar we consume to greater our oxidative stress and inflammation. White sugar, as well as other white foods, create magnesium deficiencies, which creates chronic inflammation in the body, depresses immune system strength and prevents the cells from detoxifying."

My suggestion for ‘Someone New To The Forum” is: feel absolutely free to respond to your inner attraction regarding your parents. The latest reports plus doctor assessments indicate that individuals with compromised immune systems are the ones who are experiencing symptoms more severe than that typically associated with the flu. If you are still concerned about transmitting a contagion then I’d further suggest doing what you can to support enhancing your parents’ immunity with the protocol published online by Dr. Mark Sircus.
March 16, 2020 - A Proven Protocol -
"For anyone's information who cares to follow up with research on COVID-19 prevention measures or what to do beyond the government's recommendations. A person I have followed for several years, very intelligent, experienced with the science and experience in these matters has communication with herbal doctors in China and elsewhere.
Here is the story. When this Virus broke out in China, a very well recognized, elderly herbal doctor was treating 13 elderly, cancer and compromised patients in Wuhan city. He is well recognized by law enforcement and is allowed to come and go to treat his patients. When the Virus broke out several people in the apartments where these patients lived were getting sick with the virus. However, none of these doctor's patients were becoming ill.
He had been treating them for illnesses with Chaga Mushroom extract. Further, follow up from other sources indicates that it is very important to STRENGTHEN the immune system beyond eating certain foods. Therefore, this man's twitter account is all about this virus and people treating it with the following dosages for preventive purposes. 50mg per kg of body wt per day of Vitamin C, preferably Liposomal Vitamin C plus 1/2 mg of Chaga Mushroom taken in powder or capsule form plus 2000 IU of vitamin D3.
It is being reported that patients in ICU situations, they are treating them intravenously, with excessive dosages of Vitamin C and ml of Chaga tinture. The Vitamin C is to kill the virus and Chaga is to prevent it from further mutation. This information is spreading, it is happening on the ground with people experiencing this virus.
If your interested to follow this thread of information, the twitter account is of Clif High... just Google his name."

March 13, 2020 - Got (Coronavirus) Immunity? -
"... The worst part of all the hullaballoo (about Coronavirus ) is the bad advice that fills the newspaper reports. People are engaging in extreme hand-washing, disinfecting their houses with clorox, refusing handshakes and wearing masks. (Remember that viruses are extremely tiny, so wearing a mask is like building a chain link fence to keep out mice.) We don’t read anything in the papers about building immunity—to all diseases, from coronavirus to TB. In fact, the Washington Post has admonished its readers that you can’t build immunity to the coronavirus.
This is nonsense. Like any virus, coronavirus is no match for someone with a strong immune system. ..."
How To Boost Your Immune System -
By Sally Fallon Morell
Coronavirus has been around a long time, and like any virus, it is no match for someone with a strong immune system. Here are ways you can bolster yours:
1. Vitamin A-rich foods: Vitamin A is our number one protection against viruses. So take your cod liver oil and eat liver about once a week.
2. Vitamin D: Vitamin D works with vitamin A to give us a strong immune system. Best sources are cod liver oil, egg yolks from pastured hens and lard from pigs raised outdoors.
3. Coconut Oil: The coronavirus is a lipid-coated virus that pegs out in the presence of medium-chain triglycerides -- and coconut oil is our best source of these healthy fats.
4. Gelatin-rich Bone Broth: Supports the immune system and helps us detoxify.
5. Vitamin C: Your best source is fermented veggies like sauerkraut -- there is ten times more vitamin C in sauerkraut than in fresh cabbage!
6. Saturated Fats: Coronavirus has an affinity for the lungs, and the lungs can't work without saturated fats, so eat plenty of butter and avoid all industrial fats and oils.*
March 4, 2020 - Viruses are pH Sensitive -
By: Dr. Mark Sircus AC., OMD, DM (P)
There are certain important subjects that doctors and world health officials do not want you to know about. The fact that most viruses and all physiological processes in the body are pH sensitive is one of them. Despite the fact that pH medicine offers us a key to treating viral infections that is easy, safe and inexpensive, they and even alternative health care providers just cannot wrap their heads around baking soda as one of the most important medicines we can use to fight the coronavirus.
Researchers at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in the US have uncovered the ‘Achilles’ heel’ of most viruses which plague mankind are on target, there are vulnerabilities that can be exploited but what they are looking at is not practical or helpful in our fight against viral infections. The so-called ‘Achilles heel’ (or vulnerable point) of most viruses can be exploited by pulling the pH rug out from under them.
The ability of influenza virus to release its genome under different acidic conditions is linked to the transmission of influenza virus. The threshold pH at which fusion is first observed can vary among different serotypes of membrane protein hemagglutinin (HA) and may correlate with virulence. The acid stability of HA has been linked to the successful transmission of virus between avian and human hosts.
Coronavirus infectivity is exquisitely sensitive to pH. For example, the MHV-A59 strain of coronavirus is quite stable at pH 6.0 (acidic) but becomes rapidly and irreversibly inactivated by brief treatment at pH 8.0 (alkaline). Human coronavirus strain 229E is maximally infective at pH 6.0. Infection of cells by murine coronavirus A59 at pH 6.0 (acidic) rather than pH 7.0 (neutral) yields a tenfold increase in the infectivity of the virus.
Data suggests that the coronavirus IBV employs a direct, low-pH-dependent virus-cell fusion activation reaction. “Fusion of the coronavirus IBV with host cells does not occur at neutral pH and that fusion activation is a low-pH-dependent process, with a half-maximal rate of fusion at pH 5.5. Little or no fusion occurred above a pH of 6.0.”
Raising pH (to an alkaline state) increases the immune system’s ability to kill bacteria, concludes The Royal Free Hospital and School of Medicine in London. The viruses and bacteria which cause bronchitis and colds thrive in an acidic environment. Keeping our pH in the slightly alkaline range of 6.8-7.2 can reduce the risk and lessen the severity of colds, sore throats and bouts of influenza.
When we thoroughly add alkalinity we invariably have mild attacks of viral infections and the same is true for bacterial and fungus infections. There is significant decrease in median number of colony forming bacteria and fungi in the lungs of pneumonia patients when sodium bicarbonate is used compared to saline.

Medical scientists have already concluded that a 8.4% solution of bicarbonate is safe inhibitory drug for respiratory bacterial, fungal, and mycobacterial growth. Slow infusions of NaHCO3 (bicarbonate) can also be used to treat non-anion gap metabolic acidosis and some forms of increased anion gap acidosis, a common enough problem in ICU patients with serious lung infections.
Viruses infect host cells by fusion with cellular membranes at low pH. Thus they are classified as “pH-dependent viruses.” Drugs that increase intracellular pH (alkalinity within the cell) have been shown to decrease infectivity of pH-dependent viruses. Since such drugs can provoke negative side effects, the obvious answer are natural techniques that can produce the same results. There is no pharmaceutical that can compete with sodium bicarbonate for changing the pH of the bodies fluids.
Fusion of viral and cellular membranes is pH dependent. “Fusion depends on the acidification of the endosomal compartment. Fusion at the endosome level is triggered by conformational changes in viral glycoproteins induced by the low pH of this cellular compartment.”[i] In membrane biology, fusion is the process by which two initially distinct lipid bilayers merge their hydrophobic cores, resulting in one interconnected structure. It has been suggested that the hepatitis C virus (HCV) infects host cells through a pH-dependent internalization mechanism. This HCVpp-mediated fusion was dependent on low pH, with a threshold of 6.3 and an optimum at about 5.5.[ii] When pH drops to 6 or below, rapid fusion between the membranes of viruses and the liposomes occurs.
Takeda Pharmaceutical is joining Gilead Sciences and AbbVie as the latest drugmaker to work on developing a coronavirus vaccine. The experimental drug would be derived from the blood of coronavirus patients who have recovered from the respiratory disease. “While we don’t know for sure that it will work, we think it’s definitely a relevant asset that could be of help here,” said Dr. Rajeev Venkayya, president of Takeda’s vaccines business. pH medicine will definitively work because viruses are pH dependent and sodium bicarbonate is available everywhere and costs almost next to nothing. In hospitals bicarbonate is easily administered intravenously.
Inhibition of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) replication in LB cells by interferon (IFN) is pH sensitive. Using sensitive intracellular pH (pHi) indicators, researchers found that IFN treatment significantly raised the pHi. The increase in pHi correlated with an enhancement of the antiviral activity of IFN by primary amines. These results indicated that the IFN-induced increase in pHi may be responsible for the accumulation of G in the TGN, thereby producing G-deficient virus particles with reduced infectivity.[iii]
Solar light is another important factor producing viral
inactivation, through the action of UV radiation. Viruses
survive better in the dark than when exposed to sunlight.
The foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) capsid is highly acid labile and tends to dissociate into pentameric subunits at acidic condition to release viral RNA for initiating virus replication.
Understanding Cell Voltage, pH and Oxygen Levels
Wherever the body has low voltage, the cells begin to have problems that get more serious the lower the voltage (pH) goes. The lower the voltage goes, the lower the pH goes, and the lower oxygen levels go, and that means CO2 levels are going south as well. Chronic disease is associated with loss of voltage, lower pH values (acid conditions), as well as low O2 and CO2 levels. This means that alkaline tissues have more oxygen in them.
Wherever the body becomes acidic, voltage drops as does tissue oxygen levels. What is pH after all? It is ultimately a measure of redox potential. Redox potential is a measure of whether electrons are available in surplus (and thus are “electron donors”) or whether electrons are deficient (and thus are “electron stealers”). Electrons are necessary for life and are needed for health and in high quantities for healing and the growth of new cells.
Dr. David Brownstein wrote, “The human body is constantly removing old and injured cells and replacing them with healthy new cells. This process can only occur if the voltage of the cells is maintained at an optimal level. This process works more effectively when we are young as compared to when we are older. In the body (or in a solution), voltage is a direct reflection of pH, which is a measure of the degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution, measured on a scale of 1 to 14. The human body’s pH level is a direct reflection of its voltage. A low pH reading (highly acidic) indicates a low voltage state. Conversely, a high pH reading (highly alkaline) means a high voltage state.”
The amount of oxygen in cells is determined by voltage. If a cell has adequate voltage, it will also have adequate oxygen. If cellular voltage is low, the amount of oxygen in the tissues will be low. This applies to metabolism as well. When voltage and oxygen are low, metabolism becomes anaerobic, which means that oxygen is unavailable.

"Vitamin C is helpful because it is the cellular energy transfer system that is being harmed by the corona virus. Some citrus essential oils are also very, very effective and powerful surface germ-killers, too.
In terms of killing the corona virus or any other virus on solid surfaces ( and bacteria, too) a cleaning solution made by boiling peels from half a dozen oranges in two quarts water, 1/2 c. vinegar per quart of water, and 1 Tbs. salt and using in a spray bottle is very effective. Lemon peel can also be used. If you don't like the smell of citrus (I do, but some people don't) you can also substitute eucalyptus, tea tree, or oregano oil for the citrus peel and get the same germ killing power.
The same basic solution can be used to rinse your mouth or hands or sprayed on laundry as a pre-wash, though I prefer using coconut oil with a little essential oil of cinnamon or cloves as a germ-killing mouth wash. Stripping off street clothes promptly, spraying them lightly, and storing the dirty clothes in plastic bags until you are ready to wash them helps kills any virus or bacteria and isolates the pathogens you pick up from getting spread around inside the house. Adding a few drops of a germ-killing essential oil to your laundry detergent will not only help kill virus and bacteria, but will make your clothes smell wonderful.
Giving a quick spray to your shoes and keeping them sequestered near the door helps keep both germs and dirt outside. Orange oil mixed with a good carrier oil and a little beeswax makes a good (and disinfectant) boot oil that kills germs on contact.
Cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and nutmeg essential oils all kill bacteria and viruses very effectively. During the Bubonic Plague, sailors on the spice ships proved immune because of their constant handling of these spices. The importance of this was not immediately realized, but after the fact has contributed to the use of these essential oils in diffusers and in carrier oils as one of the few truly effective means of combating and overcoming all forms of viral pneumonia. I (Anna Von Reitz) suffered viral pneumonia every year for five years straight and nearly died one winter, before a friend brought me a diffuser and essential oils.
One company, Be Young, even makes a mixture of essential oils called 'Spice of Life' that mimics the combination of oils that would have been found on the medieval spice ships that proved so effective in combating the Plague.
A ten to one ratio of a good carrier oil (I would prefer coconut oil for its antiseptic properties, but almond oil, avocado oil, and olive oil all work fine) to any of these germ-killing essential oils works as a good and long lasting barrier on your skin. During cold season I regularly apply these diluted essential oils to my lips and around the rim of my nostrils and as long as I do so, I never get colds. The essential oils are effective in penetrating and killing virus and bacteria in the nasal passages.
Rubbing these diluted essential oils on your hands before going grocery shopping, wiping it on the steering wheel of your car, and other surfaces, is a sure way of cutting down or eliminating germs of all sorts.
This is no time for hysteria, and I am not suggesting any, but keeping good hygiene practices and protecting your health is always a good idea no matter what.
Once you get used to buying and using a few of Nature's plentiful and (most-often) pleasant smelling essential oils as part of your cleaning routine and learning how effective they are, you will throw away the majority of the expensive over the counter cleansers and spray bottle products you now use --- saving yourself money and promoting your family's health at the same time.
Always remember that essential oils are very, very concentrated. Only a drop or two goes a long way and they should always be used in a diluted form---either by adding to carrier oils or by floating them on the surface of water, as in a boiling pot of water on the stove, or in a ultrasonic diffuser.
Just the act of making the citrus peel-vinegar-salt solution has a strongly disinfecting effect on your kitchen and you can obtain a similar effect by adding a few drops of essential oil to hot bathwater or running an ultrasonic diffuser in your bathroom. Running an ultrasonic diffuser in your bedroom can help calm your nerves and disinfect your surroundings and air passages at the same time. Try a mixture of orange and cinnamon oil with a few drops of lavender or rose oil. ..."

Coconut and West Nile Virus (Originally published Fall, 2007) -
In recent years the West Nile Virus has received a good deal of media attention due to the occurrence of several outbreaks around the country. The virus is of particular interest because it can cause severe illness and even death.
The West Nile Virus was first discovered in the African country of Uganda in 1937. It was recognized as a cause of severe human menigoencephalitis (inflammation in the brain and spinal cord) in outbreaks that occurred in Egypt and Israel during the 1950s. The virus eventually spread into Europe and in recent years has appeared in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. It was first reported in the United States in 1999 in New York City. Since that time the virus has been detected in humans, animals, and mosquitoes throughout the United States and Canada.
The virus primarily infects birds, but is known to infect humans, horses, dogs, cats, and other mammals. The main route of human infection is through the bite of an infected mosquito.
Mosquitoes spread the disease from infected birds to humans. Blue jays and crows are most susceptible to the virus and usually die within three weeks after being infected. The presence of dead birds is an early indicator of the arrival of the virus.
There is no vaccine for humans. Because the infection is caused by a virus, antibiotics are not effective and no antiviral drugs have been successfully used. Therefore, treatment is supportive. It is aimed at improving the symptoms but does not shorten the course of the illness. In mild cases, symptoms include fever, fatigue, headache, muscle weakness, and body aches. The virus affects the nervous system, causing swelling and inflammation in the brain and spinal cord and in more severe cases can lead to mental confusion and disorientation, tremors, seizures, convulsions, paralysis, loss of consciousness, and death. Symptoms can last a few days or persist for several weeks. Between 1999, when the virus was first reported in New York, and 2006 there have been 26,246 confirmed cases in the U.S. and Canada, resulting in 985 deaths.
The medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil are known to kill disease-causing viruses. Consuming coconut oil on a regular basis may provide the body with the protection it needs to prevent an infection from the West Nile virus. Not only might it prevent an infection but evidence shows that it might be able to successfully treat active infections. Colleen Pennington of Medicine Hat, Alberta Canada can testify to the effectiveness of coconut oil in treating West Nile virus. I'll let her tell her story.
"Late last August 2006, I became infected with the West Nile virus. Just the weekend before, I noticed a dead magpie bird under the plum tree in the front yard. I'm always outside gardening and walking the dogs at the river, where there were also dead birds. I clearly remember the bite that I received on my forearm, as it itched and pussed for around a week. About a week or so after the bite, I started to become very dizzy while rollerblading downtown. That was the first symptom. Shortly thereafter I became very ill with a fever, achy bones and very, very weak. I remember while I was at work, telling my fellow workers that 'I don't know what's wrong with me, but am I very tired and weak!' My brain felt like it was shaking every time I walked a step. I could hardly remember what product at work went in what bag!
"I was sick for three or four days, and then I went to see my sister who lives a block away. Walking that block was an ordeal. When I got to my sister Beverley's house, she told me that 'I don't feel sorry for you because if you took the coconut oil you wouldn't be sick!' She's tried to tell me for years about the coconut oil, but I thought it was 'snake oil.' Boy was I wrong!
"I sat down and Beverley served me coffee with at least an inch of coconut oil floating on top! I was too sick to argue and drank the coffee. Then I went to Dr. Larry Hoogeveen's office and told him I thought I had the West Nile virus. I had to have a blood test, and was told that if I had the West Nile, there was nothing they could do for me. I then decided that I had nothing to lose, and continued to take very large doses of coconut oil over the next two days. I also juiced myself a fresh apple, three carrots, a beet, and fresh ginger root for the next several days. Within two days of taking the coconut oil I was all better.
"By that time, the Palliser Health Authority called me, with a sad, sorry long tone.
"'We're sorry to inform you, Mrs. Pennington, but you have tested positive for the West Nile virus!' I then replied, 'Oh I'm all better now!' and then there was a moment of silence on the other end, and then there was 'Oh?' The doctor on the other end sounded shocked! I'm a 41-year-old women who last year was so sick that in the spring of 2006, I had pneumonia, then I always caught everybody's cold and flu, and then the West Nile, now since taking the coconut oil, I'm never sick!"
This is quite an amazing story and demonstrates the effectiveness of coconut oil in fighting viral infections. Viruses cannot be treated with antibiotics. Antibiotics are only good for bacterial infections. Medications for viruses only treat symptoms and not the disease. Viral infections must run their course while the body mounts its own defense. The medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil can be useful in fighting viruses and ease much of burden placed on the immune system. Whether it is the West Nile, the flu, or some other virus, coconut oil may provide you with the best protection.
To prevent an infection, I suggest taking 2-4 tablespoons of coconut oil daily. If an infection takes hold, start taking coconut oil as soon as you first notice symptoms. The earlier you start, the more effective it is. I suggest taking 4-6 tablespoons of coconut oil during an active infection. The oil should be consumed in divided doses about every two hours throughout the day. It is best taken with food. Once symptoms subside, go back to 2-4 tablespoons daily. Use common sense and seek medical advice when necessary.*
February 3, 2020 - Glutathione -
"... The first step in anti-viral or bacterial medicine is to build the strength of the immune system. Our immune cells are designed to protect us, but what protects the immune cell? Glutathione is the protector of the immune cell and allows newly formed immune cells to proliferate to attack germs and viruses. Glutathione feeds, protects, and strengthens our immune system.
Glutathione boosts white blood cell production to fight infection, particularly the T-cells, which are called lymphocytes. T-cells are at the core of our immunity, and tailor the body’s immune response to pathogens, viral and bacterial infections or anything the cells recognize as being invasive. Studies have shown that Glutathione is food for the immune cells, boosting the strength of lymphocytes. B-cell lymphocytes identify the unwanted pathogen that the T-cells then attack.
GSH protects us from viruses, such as the herpes virus, flu viruses, and probably from Ebola as well. Our white blood cells are cells help fight off viruses. They need an abundant supply of glutathione to be able to effectively protect us from invading micro-organisms and viruses. Inhibition of cellular respiration, oxidation of glutathione and induction of apoptosis have been reported in epithelial cells infected in vitro with influenza A virus (IAV). ..."*
February 1, 2020 - How Best to Protect? - by Cilla Whatcott
Be sure to build your natural immunity! Wash your hands, avoid sugar in your diet, eat organic whole foods, get rest and exercise, reduce stress, take Influenzinum or Osillococcinum prophylactically. Many of these flus have birds or bats as their reservoirs and both these homeopathic preparations have components that address such origins. Above all else, quell the fear! Within the homeopathic community there is no need to be frantically seeking a nosode for 2019-n CoV. Using polycrests, mentioned below, that fit the symptom picture will be adequate and highly effective. Because it’s been named, there’s no need to assume we must use allopathic tactics to “fight” It. This is an old paradigm – one that is not serving us.
Protect yourself & your family by taking Influenzinum and Osillococcinum prophylactically. Many of these flus have birds or bats as their reservoirs and both these homeopathic preparations have components that address such origins.
The Genus Epidemicus -
Homeopaths from around the world coordinate efforts by sharing common symptoms of circulating viruses and determine what’s known as a “genus epidemicus,” or GE. The GE is the remedy that most commonly alleviates symptoms and moves sufferers smoothly through the stages to healing. The reports coming in for the current flu strain say that Gelsemium (intense fatigue and weakness), followed by Mercurius (sore throat), Bryonia (cough), or Eupatorium (achiness) have been effective.
My entire motivation in creating the Real Immunity film series was to help people access their intuition and diminish fear. Review the history above of the “epidemics” whether it’s the flu, an infectious disease “outbreak,” or a “new” epidemic, we’re offered an opportunity annually to get riled up and fearful. Maybe it’s a way to distract us from more important issues or to keep us lost in emotion? Get an eagle’s eye perspective on what is going on and learn to follow your intuition rather than the nightly news. Getting caught up in the erratic bonanza of fear is really keeping you in a place of complacency and at the whim of the media and medical community. Stop giving your power away! Refresh your sanity and EMPOWER yourself by watching (or rewatching) the Real Immunity Series and start integrating consciousness techniques to keep you centered. Like many others, you’ll find it refreshing.
We all possess real immunity. We needn’t look to others to provide it. There is no need for hysteria. Life comes with no guarantees. Living peaceably with the many questions is essential for sanity. When you feel yourself spinning out of control, stop, take a breath, ask if there is more to learn, identify what your own responsibility is and step up to it.
Learn to follow your intuition rather than the nightly news. Getting caught up in the erratic bonanza of fear is really keeping you in a place of complacency and at the whim of the media and medical community. Stop giving your power away!
A sweet and wise counselor said to me, “The talk is about quarantine, and just look at the people who will be targeted for that! When we realize the power of the immune system, we don’t need to give our power away like that and create enemies because we are fearful.“
Don’t give your power away. Find your equilibrium in a topsy-turvy world and know that being centered can sometimes require the pendulum to swing in both directions in order to find the sweet center. ...

Vitamin C Protects Against Coronavirus -
by Andrew W. Saul, Editor
(OMNS January 26, 2020) The coronavirus pandemic can be dramatically slowed, or stopped, with the immediate widespread use of high doses of vitamin C. Physicians have demonstrated the powerful antiviral action of vitamin C for decades. There has been a lack of media coverage of this effective and successful approach against viruses in general, and coronavirus in particular.
It is very important to maximize the body's anti-oxidative capacity and natural immunity to prevent and minimize symptoms when a virus attacks the human body. The host environment is crucial. Preventing is obviously easier than treating severe illness. But treat serious illness seriously. Do not hesitate to seek medical attention. It is not an either-or choice. Vitamin C can be used right along with medicines when they are indicated.
"I have not seen any flu yet that was not cured or markedly ameliorated by massive doses of vitamin C." -
(Robert F. Cathcart, MD)
The physicians of the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service and the International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine urge a nutrient-based method to prevent or minimize symptoms for future viral infection. The following inexpensive supplemental levels are recommended for adults; for children reduce these in proportion to body weight:
Vitamin C: 3,000 milligrams (or more) daily, in divided doses.
Vitamin D3: 2,000 International Units daily. (Start with 5,000 IU/day for two weeks, then reduce to 2,000)
Magnesium: 400 mg daily (in citrate, malate, chelate, or chloride form)
Zinc: 20 mg daily
Selenium: 100 mcg (micrograms) daily
Vitamin C [i], Vitamin D [ii], magnesium [iii], zinc [iv], and selenium [v] have been shown to strengthen the immune system against viruses.
The basis for using high doses of vitamin C to prevent and combat virus-caused illness may be traced back to vitamin C's early success against polio, first reported in the late 1940s.[vi] Many people are unaware, even surprised, to learn this. Further clinical evidence built up over the decades, leading to an anti-virus protocol published in 1980.[vii]
It is important to remember that preventing and treating respiratory infections with large amounts of vitamin C is well established. Those who believe that vitamin C generally has merit, but massive doses are ineffective or somehow harmful, will do well to read the original papers for themselves. To dismiss the work of these doctors simply because they had success so long ago sidesteps a more important question: Why has the benefit of their clinical experience not been presented to the public by responsible governmental authorities, especially in the face of a viral pandemic?

Additional suggestions By Tom Cowan, M.D -
Reduce Exposure to Toxins, Spend Time in Nature -
Every winter we seem to be inundated with news about the latest flu or other viral threat to our health. Obviously, I have no special insight as to the severity of the new corona virus scare from China, and I don't want to diminish the impacts on people and families that have been affected. I can only say that I remain skeptical of the fear mongering and am also concerned that the usual "new virus that is about to kill us all" story is not the whole story.
For example, in Arthur Firstenberg's brilliant book, "The Invisible Rainbow," he traces the timing of each of the six major flu pandemics in the past 150 years to a dramatic change in the electrification of the earth. Whether it was the introduction of electrical power lines, radar, radio signals or other wireless devices, each pandemic occurred within six months of the introduction of one of these technologies. Furthermore, in many cases, the epidemiology of the outbreaks suggested that a contagious cause was impossible. For example, in 1918, the Spanish flu pandemic happened simultaneously world wide, spreading faster than any possible physical contact between these disparate people. In investigating the cause of this outbreak, the Boston Health Department tried to deliberately infect people by exposing them to the mucus or secretions from people who were suffering from the flu. They were unable to transmit the disease and concluded there was no contagious agent involved.
In another example, the Zika virus outbreak centered in Brazil was eventually traced to the use of a novel pesticide for mosquitos in the Brazilian forests. The onset of the Zika crisis corresponded with the use of the insecticide and has waned since the curtailing of its use. Other examples exist throughout history in which a supposedly contagious viral disease was actually the result of a weakening of our immune systems caused by a toxic agent. Although it is too soon to conclude anything about the new corona virus, we should all be cautious before accepting the conventional story.
With this in mind, we can take the following steps to strength our immune systems and prevent harm from toxic exposures.
Eliminate as much as possible all EMF exposure: Turn off WiFi at night, use wired devices whenever possible, and keep all wireless devices in shielded pouches or on airplane mode as much as you can.
Eat only organic or biodynamic foods to decrease your exposure to agricultural chemicals, which also weaken your immune system.
Filter your water to eliminate fluoride, chlorine and other immune-suppressing chemicals.
Get out in the sun as much as possible and spend as much time in nature, particularly in forests, beaches and other wild places.
Take a good blend of botanicals and mushrooms along with vitamin C-containing foods. My favorite blend is Immunity Matrix. The usual dose is 1 teaspoon in hot water twice a day.
Take a good vitamin D3K2 supplement, as these have been shown to reduce the severity and incidence of flu. One good brand is from Quick Silver Scientific. The dose is 1-2 pumps a day.
Cook with turmeric, dissolved in either butter or ghee. Turmeric helps to cleanse and detoxify the cells, lessening your need for detoxification reactions such as flu symptoms.
Practice an attitude of generosity and helpfulness to all those in your circles, including those who you may not be inclined to agree with. This might be the hardest but perhaps one of the most helpful practices you can do.
January 24, 2020 - "Treatment Recommendations For New Virus That Is Shutting Down Entire Cities" - By: Dr. Mark Sircus -
Dr. Sircus identifies several key all natural nutrient substances (that the majority of people are possibly deficient in) as the most medicinal for maximizing the effectiveness of the immune system so that it can fulfill its defense function with greater vigor.

Just enjoyed reading this very-well written article on "4 Foods to Avoid with Herpes or Shingles".
Also got inspired to check out what Aajonus wrote:
"HERPES ... This is sometimes a condition that results from taking medication during chicken pox. Sometimes it is a condition resulting from taking the small pox vaccine. Another cause is very high adrenaline saturation (volatile toxic condition) in the nerve endings.
For six weeks, drinking 1 level teaspoon of powdered sun-dried clay mixed in 2-6 ounces of good mineral water or raw fresh juice helps attract and absorb toxins that cause herpes. Eating raw fresh fish and raw chicken several times weekly with no-salt-added raw cheese and an equal portion of unsalted raw butter for eight weeks helps soothe and heal the nerves. Eating fresh raw unripe pineapple with unheated honey relieves soreness. For many years thereafter, and in general, following a balanced Primal Diet, mainly utilizing alkalizing foods helps heal the liver and other affected areas. ..."
"ALKALIZING FOOD neutralizes acidity and volatile toxins, refreshing an acidic and toxic body. Except for wheat grass juice, all edible raw fresh vegetable juices, raw fruits and raw fresh fruit puree are alkalizing. Raw fresh tomatoes, raw fresh figs, raw fresh pineapple, raw fresh lemons and raw fresh parsley are the most alkalizing. Alkalizing foods do not need to be eaten together or eaten exclusively except during particular ailments. But if they are included - when you desire them or have a toxic problem - in a balanced raw diet, physical, emotional, and mental life will be easier. Although tomatoes, apples, citrus fruit and raw unpasteurized apple cider vinegar are considered acidic, they alkalize the blood and body. ..."
March 4, 2018 - Healing Herbs & Supplements -
"You may be wondering how to arm yourself against all of these herpes viruses. One simple way to start is by bringing zinc into your daily health protocol. A rampant, global zinc deficiency is one of the reasons the herpes family exploded onto the scene and became the issue it is today. Zinc acts as a powerful weapon against the herpes family, so replenishing your zinc reserves with a high-quality zinc sulfate supplement can be an incredibly protective measure. A blood test does not account for the possibility of a zinc deficiency in places such as your ganglia, nervous system, and liver, so do not rely on a blood test to determine whether you have sufficient zinc reserves. Bring zinc into your life and work with a practitioner to figure out a dosage that is right for you.
L Lysine is another weapon that can help fight the herpes family. When it comes to battling a herpes virus, taking only 500 mg of lysine a day might not be sufficient. If you’re fighting off Epstein-Barr or another aggravating herpes variety, a fairly generous amount of lysine may be necessary. That being said, It is important to discuss the exact dosage you plan on taking with a practitioner so that you can best support your specific health issues. If you aren’t struggling with a herpes virus, but want to help shield yourself from picking up one of the hundreds of possible strains, taking a smaller dose of lysine can be a protective step.
Other herbs and supplements to consider incorporating include B-12 with methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, 5-MTHF, lemon balm, and selenium. Licorice root can act like a glue to help prevent herpes viruses, such as Epstein-Barr, from feeding, reproducing, or moving locations.
Eyebright and echinacea can be great herbs for fighting a herpes virus. Periodically using goldenseal can be another great measure to put in place. Regularly brewing yourself a glass of thyme tea can be a supportive practice, and taking oregano oil or seasoning your meals with the fresh oregano herb on a daily basis can provide healing benefits as well.
Healing Foods -
Bringing antiviral foods into your diet is an important part of healing from any herpes virus. All fruits and vegetables are antiviral. For that reason, try filling your diet with as many fresh fruits and veggies as you can! Many herbs and spices can provide antiviral support as well. As you enjoy these foods, you can be at peace knowing that none of the herpes viruses are being fed or strengthened by these life-giving foods. Try incorporating ginger, turmeric, Hawaiian spirulina, garlic, and onion into your meals. These foods can be incredibly supportive when regularly included in your diet. ..."
The "Chef-doctor" recommends including lacto-fermeted vegetables, properly preparing the other vegetables and adding plenty of high-quality fats (especially animal fats) with those vegetables. Otherwise look to the other "antiviral" culinary sources.
May 24, 2018 - Immunity Support With Ionic Silver -
Dr. Carolyn Dean writes (in email to subscribers) -
"... the ionic form of silver (like our Pico Silver) is the form used in hundreds of clinical studies carried out since the early 1900's, all of which point to ionic silver's effectiveness. Regardless, our objective is to always put out the very best product we can with the available research and information we have. Research and comparative studies such as those put out by Rice University and more recent studies have always formed the basis of our research and decision making.
Further, we have access to our own research laboratories and equipment which allows us to duplicate many of the studies we have read as part of our own R&D process. We have conducted our own antibacterial activity tests on different forms and types of silver, including our very own Pico Silver. It is now a well proven fact (reference 100's of peer reviewed studies on this topic) that it is the silver 'ion' that kills germs and heals tissue, and that neutral silver atoms are largely inert and have no bioactivity whatsoever (until converted to ions).
In physics, an element such as silver can only exist as either an atom or as an ion. An ion is an atom that's missing an electron. It is also well known that silver ions (and all ions) are extremely unstable and that in order to 'deliver' them to where you want them you need a method of stabilization. This unique stabilization forms the unique basis of our pico ionic minerals (ReMag, ReMyte, ReCalcia) and Pico Silver Solution. ..."
May 13, 3019 - More "Immunity Support With Ionic Silver." -
In May 2018 we introduced Pico Silver, our 20ppm concentration of stabilized silver ions in solution to our customers around the world and the results have been as wonderful and highly predictable as we thought.
You see, when you introduce stabilized ions of minerals into your body incredible things begin to happen. And, as the benefits of silver are well documented in medical literature, the benefits of a stabilized, mono-atomic form of silver in Pico Silver make those same results even more powerful and immediate!
It can be confidently declared and scientifically proven that the silver ion is far safer than antibiotics or any other antimicrobial ever created. The characteristics of the silver ion far exceed the capabilities of patented antibiotics, which cannot keep up with bacterial organisms' ability to mutate, nor do antibiotics work against viruses. In addition, antibiotics have many side effects, such as yeast infections. This is because antibiotics travel deep into the intestinal tract, where they kill the good bacteria along with the bad. It is also known and documented that taking antibiotics over a long time period weakens the body's immune system
Along with its impressive function as an antimicrobial, consider these other characteristics of Pico Silver:
Silver has the highest electrical conductivity of any metal.
The absorption of the silver ion into the body is nearly instantaneous. This means the beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract of the body will not be exposed to the silver ion, which presumably could destroy them.
Five out of six silver ion studies in mammals show positive or no significant changes to gut Microbiome diversity.
The silver ion is an integral and important part of the body's immune system response to infections and disease.
The DNA of the body is already pre-programmed to utilize silver to fight infections and disease.
Silver ions are absorbed into the bloodstream and transported to all of the tissues of the body and stored on the surface of white blood cells.
The silver ion is bonded to the surface of adult stem cells and causes dedifferentiation of the adult stem cells into the embryonic state leading to tissue regeneration.
New, healthy tissue growth is at least five to six times faster utilizing silver in wound treatment when contrasted with non-silver-treatment.
The silver ion aids the body's ability to "find" the focal point of treatment, through the body's cell signaling mechanisms – its electrical conductivity.
The silver ion aids the body's ability to "digest" the pathogen.
The silver ion aids the body in the correction of the associated complex metabolic consequences associated with long-term infectious states.
The effects of the silver ion in anti-aging approaches is very promising.
The silver ion has a beneficial effect upon co-infections simultaneously.
The silver ion will readily pass the blood-brain barrier, allowing for interface and intervention with neurological diseases such as ALS, MS, polio, spinal meningitis, and viral encephalitis.
The silver ion increases the Red Blood Cell count.
The silver ion is known to negatively affect bacteria through: lethal oxidation, an "intermolecular electron transfer," resulting in electrocution; a binding and chelating to essential pathogen receptor sites, which defeats the pathogen's mechanisms of invasion into host cells; an ion non-dependent heightened catalytic action; and cleavage, which fragments (and thereby destroys) essential pathogen/proteinaceous structures.
Once the silver ion ruptures a bacterial staph infection or certain fungal infections, the remaining silver ion particles begin to act as an antidote to the resulting poisons lessening the Herxheimer reaction.
The silver ion has a very high therapeutic value because there is no known lethal dose for silver ions.
There are a number of ways to administer the silver ion into the body: oral, transdermal, nebulize, atomize, or vaporize through a mechanical device.
With all that cellular power, you would expect the testimonials to be profound and pervasive, and indeed, they have been! Enjoy this testimonial from one of our dog-loving customers who used Pico Silver in a critical situation:
"Our French Bulldog got loose and was hit by a car. We rushed him to the vet and they set his leg and placed in a cast with very specific instructions on how to care for his leg and keep his cast dry. We followed the directions to the letter but within 10 days his wound became septic and the vet wanted to amputate his leg. Fortunately my buddy Gregg rushed over to my house with Pico Silver. We swabbed his leg hourly and added the solution to his drinking water. Within 3 days his wound was healed and the vet withdrew his recommendation to amputate. Thank you so much Dr. Dean for this product. We now have several bottles on hand." - Perry K, Hudson, NC

 Comment -
Thank you, very much, Dr. Sircus!
The true spirit of the extensive truthful nature of everything that you present here is in absolute total and complete contrast to the fear-mongering of mass media. For that I am truly most deeply grateful! You are a model of "speak truth one to one another" and that inspired me to all the more embody the spirit that you consistently have been exemplifying! In some philosophical systems the doctor is esteemed to be in the "caste" of "priests" and you, good doctor, most certainly demonstrate that. May you inspire all doctors to return to the source of where all good medicine originates.:
