“Hear yea. Hear yea. Read all about. it “

Did that get your attention? Good! A big item in the news is the rollout of the new Covid -19 vaccines. Yes there are two vaccines. One developed by Pfizer and the other by Moderna. While this should be welcome news to all of us, I think we should approach with a word of caution as we should with any new medication. All medication has potential side effects and vaccines are no exceptions. Most were minor in nature. Local site reactions, headaches, fever etc. that could be treated as outpatient. There were a few allergic reactions require a more intense treatment and monitoring in the hospital. In great Britain, there was reported a few cases of Bell’s palsy, a paralysis of the body. They are reversed in a few weeks. Bottom line, do your own research before deciding so you’re not surprised if something happens.
It is my belief as well as many other health professionals that we should be putting more emphasis on building up our immune system to protect us from disease. The current status of the immune system for the majority of the population of this country as well as elsewhere is very poor. This can be attributed to our diet as well as external effects from plastics, pollution, EMR, pesticides and many other causes of free radicals that attack our bodies.
As far as COVID-19, there has been a lot published about the benefits of vitamin D3. A mountain of research from around the world has painted a clear picture that infected patients who do not have enough vitamin D are more likely to end up in the hospital. A study from northern Spain show that patient deficient in vitamin D were four times likely to end up in the hospital. A university of Chicago study found patients were 60% higher rate of COVID-19 among patients with low vitamin D.
The question is how much vitamin D is needed to reach therapeutic levels in the blood. There has been a lot of controversy as far as what is therapeutic, what is safe, and what is low. A recent (2 April 2020) review article in Nutrients outlined these parameters. “ To reduce the risk of infection, it is recommended that people at risk of influenza and/or COVID-19 consider taking 10,000 IU/D a vitamin D3 for a few weeks to rapidly raise 25(OH)D concentrations, followed by 5000 IU/D. The goal should be to raise 25(OH)D concentration above 40 -60 ng/ml (100-150 neoliberals/L). It is also recommended to have your vitamin D level checked before and 2 to 3 months after starting therapy.

What’s News in Everybody’s Health

We recently discussed that the underlying cause of many major diseases in our body is inflammation. Also, recent medical science has discovered that the primary cars in this information is free radicals - The angry oxygen Pac-Man going around and gobbling up cells. We discussed that one way to stop this is with antioxidants and that Everybody’s Health Has a non-invasive medical device that can measure antioxidants.

The other part of the equation is controlling the amount of free radicals in our body. In order to do that we have to know where the free radicals come from. We will spend the next few issues identifying the source of the free radicals that plague the human body. But, before we get into that somewhat technical stuff, there is a point I wish to make. Let’s face it, if you want to protect your body from the preventable premature aging and death then you really need to take control of your own health. You cannot put everything in the hands of a physician because they do not have enough time anymore. You need to become a label reader of what you put into your body. Many other foods we buy actually contain toxic substances or promote poor health. As a general rule, if a food label has a list of ingredients that is more than a few words or words you cannot pronounce or understand, then you probably need to put it back. The easiest way to make sure your food isn’t full of chemicals is to buy organic fresh whole foods. I know this is not always possible, but an occasional transgression is not generally going to cause long-term damage. It is the daily habits that get us into trouble. We have a garbage removal system (our liver and lymph nodes) and an immune system that can usually handle the occasional transgression. It is when we overload those systems with substances not meant to be in our bodies that become a problem.
Next time we will start to talk about some of those substances to help give you a guide. But remember, it all starts with a scan!
Set up your time to get scanned so you know where to start. Call……
