Over the past six months, I have been furious at the complete lack of health advice from our Public Health Officials, the so-called experts in the medical field, and the ones in charge of the COVID narrative at the Mainstream Media Headquarters. While people will repeat phrases like, "listen to the experts," I think they have no clue as to just how many experts there are in The Health and Healing Industry. And for every medical theory, there is always a contradictory one waiting to be discovered and then the old theory gets thrown out and a new one adopted. There is no one size fits all perfect approach to health and healing. The common denominator when it comes to human IMMUNOLOGY 101 is how the individual patient responds to treatment and no matter how a study clumps a group of people together they are limited in scope as they can't take into account the millions of human variables and unknown components of the gut and brain that we are just now getting a glimpse of. We are an intricate combination of trillions and trillions and trillions of particles, cells, nanoparticles, water, and some strange element that some call the soul that keeps us alive.
While we can appreciate the Doctors and Medical Health Professionals doing their best to keep people alive, to give anyone person or institution our blind faith and our unwavering trust is to ignore all of the evidence that says we should approach everything with an air of healthy skepticism and critical thinking. So, the next time someone insists that we listen to only one Doctor, or says, "LISTEN TO THE EXPERTS" it is perfectly acceptable to say, "Which ONE?" And, then, to offer a counter from another reputable expert in the same field. It's important to keep in mind that, Allopathic Medicine is the third leading cause of death. In fact, "According to a recent study by Johns Hopkins, more than 250,000 people in the United States die every year because of medical mistakes, making it the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer." - Feb 22, 2018 CNBC. Furthermore, studies make a case for getting a second opinion. This is straight out of Yale Medicine, a legit source, "In 2017, a study showed that 21% of patients who sought a second opinion at the Mayo Clinic left with a completely new diagnosis, and 66% were deemed partly correct, but refined or redefined by the second doctor." And, one doesn't have to look too far to see how many times the United States Surgeon General, Our State Officials, Our Public Health Officials, and the Mainstream Media have contradicted themselves, changed stances and updated recommendations and guidelines since March. It's like watching a Ping Pong Match with "First NO MASKS," Then, "Maybe Masks," And, finally "Wear a MASK or PAY a $1000 fine." I am equally skeptical as I am forgiving. I often have to remind myself of Alexander Pope's words, "To err is human; to forgive, divine." If I didn't feed myself that daily reminder I would surely have to bury myself in a sea of cynicism.
So, here I am.
"No, I am not a Doctor." I don't have to be a DOCTOR to understand the Immune System. I don't have to be a SCIENTIST to understand the science of health. And, now that the Schools, including Colleges, have all gone online, they have downgraded their prestigious academic institutions proving that apparently, we can get a Medical Degree on Google now. So, forgive me if I want to determine for myself how to ensure the physical health and safety of my children and forgive me if after studying Kinesiology, Psychology, and working in the Health and Healing Field as a Personal Trainer with advanced training in Management of Chronic Inflammatory Diseases if I have an opinion to share. For over 22 years I have dabbled in all things as it relates to the health, healing, and spiritual evolution of the human mind, body, and soul. My bookshelves do not have one Romance Novel on them for I find my entertainment in reading books on Gut Health and Neuroscience. That's my jam! So, what have I done to get so much backlash from people I once considered friends? Let me tell you. "I dared to actually talk about how Chronic Diseases make people susceptible to COVID and the fact that most Chronic Inflammatory Diseases are due to lifestyle choices."
In an attempt to educate people about health, which I have been a student and teacher of for over 22 years now, I have been vehemently attacked with false accusations and complete misinterpretations of reality thrown back at me. When I have said,
"Those who have Heart Disease are at risk of COVID-19."
I was met on more than one occasion by counter-attacks against my good character when people said back to me,
"So, do you just think people with Heart Disease don't have the right to live?"
The short answer is, "NO."
I never said that. I stated a fact that is on the CDC website and a fact that we have known since February 2020, when the Chinese CDC reported their findings based on the outbreak they had in China. If anything, my problem is not a lack of caring, but I actually care too much. And, unfortunately, it's true what they say, "Ignorance is bliss." It's so much easier to know nothing and follow orders. But when I know that the orders being given will not assist people in living longer, I can't be silent because I want to save lives. I know that me staying at home won't do a damn bit of good. I have been inspiring and motivating people to move to save their hearts for my whole life and if I should choose to remind people that NOW is not a good time to sit inside, become sedentary, drink booze and wait for COVID-19 to passover and try to hide from being struck down from a virus that does discriminate and will come after anyone who is not Heart Healthy, so help me Yahweh.
I was shocked at the responses I got back when I chose to post information. I was cyberstalked, and former acquaintances were talking trash about me behind my back. I found out because one actually told me in a text what they said about me, the alleged unmasked bandit. LOL....
Seriously, I graduated from High School in 1996. And, even in High School I never had this type of drama because I was more discerning about who I hung out with. But, the problem with social media is it allows people to stay connected with us even though we aren't even on the same hemisphere. Admitidally, I really am not on the same wavelength as most humans....anyway....I received, a series of nasty texts from an old friend of mine, when I posted several articles from scientific medical journals questioning the effectiveness of cloth masks to stop transmission of SARS-CO-V2. There's just no where to go when someone starts throwing out personal attacks because at that point they can't hear anything other than their own swagger.
Cloth masks do not stop all of the droplets or viral particles from leaving the body. They help to decrease the viral load but its effectiveness is as good as sneezing into a handkerchief or tissue. This video should be so obvious that it is not 100% effective at stopping spit, nanoparticles or other viruses from exiting the body and infecting another human. But, still, here we are having The GREAT MASK DEBATE and people want to focus on the MASK rather than what is inside the body.
No matter how much I tried to explain how the mask, in and of itself is not enough to stop the spread of the Virus or the mechanisms of the Immune System, I was called all kinds of names that I won't bother repeating. So, while I permanently have socially distanced myself from those who made the least generous assumptions about my character, as if I was some unmasked murderer going around licking people and trying to infect them. None of that is anywhere near the truth. As, I, like anyone who wants to go grocery shopping in California have been putting on my mask to go to the store since April. And, most recently, when I went to be a witness for my two 80 year old neighbors as they signed their wills, you better believe I did wear my mask just to ease any of their anxieties or worries even though, I know those pesky viruses can still enter through the eyeballs....I am marking myself SAFE and INNOCENT from stupid assumptions and people who think they have the right to control others in an effort to make themselves feel safe. And, as I went to unpack the comments I received I drew a few important conclusions that are worth mentioning in case you are struggling with any outside antigens disguised as humans that want to follow you around and criticize your beliefs, opinions or scientific data.
When people are suffering they will look for someone to project their pain back on to. It's easier to handle the pain if they can place the blame on another. It takes emotional intelligence to hear and respond with objectivity.
The message sent is rarely the message received. Social Media, texting, and online communication make it easy to dehumanize someone and misinterpret the message sent.
Most people do not understand the complexities of the mind, body, and gut connections because they are being guided by their Primary Care Doctor whose primary focus is on symptom management through the widespread use of Pharmaceutical Agents to treat disease.
When you present a concept like "Radical Personal Responsibility" to someone in Victimhood they will see you as the enemy. And, they will attempt to defend their lifestyle choices or mental state by attacking you.
People are in pain. Those who are in pain need time to grieve. Their tank is empty and they are not ready to discuss prevention. They are just trying to survive.
Not everyone wants to or is willing to do what it takes to build a healthy immune system. The majority of the American Population would rather continue relying on pills to save them.
In this VLOG I am speaking from my heart because I truly want to save lives. And, so, I am dropping some truth bombs because I AM NOT AN ENABLER. I WILL NOT HELP YOU TO CONTINUE SMOKING AND THEN TELL MY CHILD TO WEAR A MASK SO YOU DON'T DIE....SERIOUSLY, THIS IS HAPPENING...IT IS TIME FOR PEOPLE TO WAKE UP! TAKE RADICAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT YOU PUT IN YOUR OWN MOUTH. TAKE RADICAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT YOU INJECT INTO YOUR BODY. READ THE INGREDIENT LABELS. Pay attention to what you consume. And, BEWARE, OF THE MSM TRYING TO TERRIFY YOU AND CONTROL YOU.
There is no way to save everyone, especially those who are in their last quarter of life and nearing death.
But what we can do, is begin to focus on health from within.
WE CAN FOCUS ON OUR CHILDREN'S HEALTH AND WELL-BEING AND BEGIN TO PRESERVE OUR FUTURE!
We can begin today with a new set of tools and the inner awareness that recognizes we can take charge of our health by nourishing our mind, body, and soul.
SENDING YOU STRENGTH, PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY AND A BIG GIANT KISS!
