IN THE NEWS: Breaking NEWS: Coronavirus doctor from China speaks out by: Jonathan Landsman | February 28, 2020 Conventionally speaking, our modern healthcare system is merely focusing their attention on travel bans, testing and isolation of infected people. And, while that all may seem to be a “reasonable” response to a potential pandemic outbreak of the 2019-nCoV (novel coronavirus). Obviously, much more needs to be done to protect all of us. In fact, the one thing that’s not talked about – nearly enough – is how to improve (and maintain) the health of the immune system. Can vitamin C – known to be an excellent vitamin for protecting immunity – actually help people infected with the coronavirus? Editor’s Update (2/29/20): Unfortunately, the video we posted – originally with this article – by Andrew Saul, PhD talking about some very important health information associated with vitamin C and the coronavirus has been removed by YouTube. NOTE: as technology gets bigger and stronger they start to control information that they don’t agree with. This can be dangerous for all of us. The antiviral properties of vitamin C have been studied for years here are a few of the studies you can find online. Nutrients. 2017 Apr; 9(4): 339. Published online 2017 Mar 29. doi: 10.3390/nu9040339 , PMCID: PMC5409678 PMID: 28353648 Vitamin C and Infections https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5409678/, Five controlled trials found significant effects of vitamin C against pneumonia. There is some evidence that vitamin C may also have effects on other infections, but there is a paucity of such data. The practical importance and optimally efficacious doses of vitamin C for preventing and treating infections are unknown. Vitamin C is safe and costs only pennies per gram, and therefore even modest effects may be worth exploiting.

WELLNESS: How Aluminum Damages Your Brain Research has found a strong link between aluminum exposure and Alzheimer’s disease. Patients with a genetic mutation that predisposes them to early onset of Alzheimer’s and more aggressive disease have universally high aluminum content in their brains. According to a British researcher, without aluminum in the brain, Alzheimer’s does not develop. When aluminum was first approved for use in vaccines, it was approved based on its efficacy. It was never actually tested for safety. It was simply assumed to be safe. Aluminum has been shown to cause mitochondrial dysfunction and depletion of adenine-triphosphate (ATP), which sets the stage for virtually any chronic disease. Aluminum salts can increase levels of glial activation, inflammatory cytokines and amyloid precursor protein within the brain. Recent research found the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s vaccine schedule — when adjusted for bodyweight — exposes children to a level of aluminum that is 15.9 times higher than the recommended “safe” level. A 2010 paper also pointed out that aluminum salts "can increase levels of glial activation, inflammatory cytokines and amyloid precursor protein within the brain," and that "Both normal brain aging and to a greater extent, Alzheimer's disease are associated with elevated basal levels of markers for inflammation."
CHIROPRACTIC:Restoring health when other methods fail. There are two basic forms of healthcare in the United States, one is drugs and surgery and the other is natural healthcare which includes chiropractic, diet, nutritional therapy, exercise and other techniques. Sometimes patients don't think about the type of care they will be prescribed when they see a doctor. This is important because drugs can't really heal. Drugs can stimulate, sedate as they cover symptoms of disease. Pharmaceutical companies are careful not to claim that drugs can cure diseases. Because chiropractic utilizes completely unique approaches in healthcare many people who have suffered from chronic health problems are surprised when those problems start to resolve under chiropractic care. Simply restoring the communication channels within the body can sometimes cause amazing results but when you also restore deficient nutrients to the body welcome changes can result. Remember the five laws of health. Diet (following your body type program), exercise, rest and relaxation, positive mental and spiritual attitude and a healthy nervous system are unique pathways in natural healthcare. Who do you know who would benefit from chiropractic care?
FUNNY BONE: If you boil a funnybone it becomes a laughingstock. That's humerus.@@My wife just stopped and said, "You weren't even listening were you?" I thought... "That's a pretty weird way to start a conversation."@@You drop something when you were younger, you just pick it up. When you're older and you drop something, you stare at it for a bit contemplating if you actually need it anymore.@@. Do they have a restaurant in Japan where American people cook in front of you with lawn chairs and a grill?@@I finally did it! Bought a new pair of shoes with memory foam insoles. No more forgetting why I walked into the kitchen.@@"Are you busy tomorrow?" That entirely depends on the rest of the information that you're about to give me.@@My boss says I intimidate my coworkers. I stared at him until he apologized.@@It's just fine to eat a "test" grape in the produce section but you take one bite of a rotisserie chicken and it's all, "Sir you need to leave."@@Hackers need to step up their game and delete everyone's loans, bad credit and mortgages.@@How old am I?
