gum-disease(NaturalHealth365) It’s well-known that people with poor dental health are more likely to suffer from heart disease and other chronic health conditions. This could be because people who don’t take care of their teeth are less likely to practice other good health habits, like exercising, eating healthy food, and not smoking.  But, doctors also point to an apparent link between inflammation and gingivitis (an early form of gum disease) as a possible explanation.

Until recently, the specific mechanism underlying the link between inflammation, gum disease, and overall health hasn’t been fully clear. But a new study published in the Journal of Dental Research offers some interesting insights.

Gum disease triggers UNWANTED immune system response, new study reveals

A team of researchers from the University of Toronto recently discovered that inflammation in the mouth associated with gum disease activates the body’s immune system in a way that makes someone more vulnerable to future health problems.

In their study, the researchers discovered that in vivo models with periodontal disease had higher levels of neutrophils in their bodies.  Neutrophils are part of the innate immune system and help fight off bacteria.

Unfortunately, this excess of neutrophils appears to “prime” the immune system to attack, causing an excessive response to other infections and injury elsewhere in the body. The result is that other tissues and organs (including the heart, blood vessels, and brain) may be accidentally destroyed by an over-the-top immune response.

In an interview with the University of Toronto, the study’s lead author Michael Glogauer explains, “The [neutrophils] are much more likely to release [immune substances] much more quickly, leading to negative outcomes.”

Do NOT ignore the health dangers linked to toxic indoor air.  These chemicals – the ‘off-gassing’ of paints, mattresses, carpets and other home/office building materials – increase your risk of headaches, dementia, heart disease and cancer.

While this study used animal data, it is also supported by earlier research involving human subjects, including a 2011 study published in the Journal of Periodontology which found evidence of hyperactive neutrophils in blood samples of patients diagnosed with gum disease.

In other words:

Allowing your gums to become inflamed and infected with bacteria can make your immune system overactive, which may cause it to damage other parts of your body.

Who knew your mouth had that much power?

Do you know how your oral health is? Remember these seven key warning signs…

You should know that gum disease can be treated (successfully) and the threat eliminated.  With appropriate lifestyle habits like regular flossing and brushing; use of a hydrofloss along with essential oils; and the avoidance of sugar-sweetened foods and beverages – you can stop the damage.

Hopefully, by remaining aware of the consequences of gum disease, you’ll be inspired to keep up your good dental habits. To get you motivated, just consider these seven key warning signs and complications of gum disease:

  1. Bad breath that won’t go away
  2. Red, tender, and/or swollen gums
  3. Gums that bleed, especially when you floss or brush
  4. Pain with chewing
  5. Loose teeth
  6. Sensitive teeth
  7. Receding gums (your teeth may start to look longer)

And don’t forget – allowing your dental health to deteriorate may increase your risk of hypertension, heart disease, and other health conditions.

So, are you willing to deal with the pain, embarrassment, and cost of gum disease?  Keep in mind, dentures can cost anywhere from $300 to $1,000, and dental procedures like tooth extractions and flap surgery can be painful on the mouth and the wallet.

If you don’t want trouble – and why would you be? – simply commit to the small investment in time, money, and energy needed for good oral hygiene. Your future self will thank you.  And, of course, see an experienced biological dentist for serious health issues in the mouth.

Least Favored Veggies Are Top for Your Heart

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola      Fact Checked      October 30, 2020

cruciferous vegetables

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • A recent study shows that eating just one-fourth cup to one-half cup of cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage per day can reduce the risk of calcium buildup in the aorta, the main artery that brings blood away from your heart, by as much as 46%
  • Calcium buildup in the arteries is conventionally thought to be an underlying cause of heart attacks and strokes
  • Decreasing calcium buildup could help reduce the number of people who die of heart disease, the leading cause of death of men and women in all racial and ethnic groups
  • Cruciferous vegetables can also help prevent cancer, reduce the risk of metabolic diseases like diabetes, slow cognitive decline, prevent Alzheimer’s disease, combat obesity, reduce inflammation and prevent asthma

This likely isn’t the first time you’ve been advised to eat your vegetables, but I’m going to add a new declaration: Eat your vegetables, especially the ones you may not particularly like.

If you’re not a vegetable eater, you technically may get your two to three servings per day by fitting in things like potatoes, carrots and corn (which isn’t actually a vegetable, by the way). But while those may be some of your most favorite veggies,1 they’re not the most nutritious options even though they do have some health benefits.

Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and Brussels sprouts (one of America’s most hated vegetables), have a lot more to offer, including protection for your heart.

In a recent study published in the British Journal of Nutrition,2 researchers looked at data from 684 older Western Australian women and found that those who ate more cruciferous vegetables had a lower risk of extensive calcium buildup in their aortas, the main artery that carries blood away from the heart.

The women in the study who ate more than 45 grams of cruciferous vegetables every day, such as a quarter cup of cooked broccoli or half a cup of raw cabbage, for example, were 46% less likely to have calcium buildup in their aortas compared to women who ate little to no cruciferous vegetables.

This is significant because calcium buildup is one of the key markers for atherosclerosis and structural blood vessel disease. When calcium builds up in the arteries, it “hardens” the arteries, hinders blood flow and reduces the amount of blood that circulates around the body. This series of physiological changes is conventionally thought to be a primary underlying cause of heart attack or stroke.3

On a side note, there are other working theories, however, that discount and refute the blocked artery notion. In his 2004 book, “The Etiopathogenesis of Coronary Heart Disease,”4 the late Dr. Giorgio Baroldi wrote that the largest study done on heart attack incidence revealed only 41% of people who have a heart attack actually have a blocked artery.

And, of those, 50% of the blockages occur after the heart attack, not prior to it. This means at least 80% of heart attacks are not associated with blocked arteries at all.

According to Dr. Thomas Cowan, a practicing physician, founding board member of the Weston A. Price Foundation and author of “Human Heart, Cosmic Heart,” three of the core, underlying issues that cause heart attacks are decreased parasympathetic tone followed by sympathetic nervous system activation, collateral circulation failure (lack of microcirculation to the heart) and lactic acid buildup in the heart muscle due to impaired mitochondrial function.

You can learn more about Cowan and his thoughts on this in “A New Way of Looking at Heart Disease and Novel Treatment Options.”

Cruciferous Vegetables Help Keep Your Heart Healthy

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women of all racial and ethnical groups in the U.S., killing one person every 37 seconds.5 Aside from all of the deaths attributed to heart disease, another 12.1% of Americans are living with some type of chronic heart condition.6

You may think that a lot of this comes down to your genetics, but while you may be predisposed to certain conditions, the study confirms that the development of heart disease largely has to do with your diet. This study is groundbreaking because it shows an actual mechanism for how cruciferous vegetables help prevent heart disease.

Lauren Blekkenhorst, Ph.D., one of the lead researchers on the study, explains that the high content of vitamin K in cruciferous vegetables helps inhibit calcification in the blood vessels.7 But there are other nutritional compounds that have a positive effect on your heart too.

One of the most notable is sulforaphane, an isothiocyanate compound that gives cruciferous vegetables their signature odor. If you’ve ever cooked broccoli or Brussels sprouts, you know that smell I’m referring to. While these compounds can certainly clear a room, they are just as powerful when it comes to your health.

Other than sulforaphane, the nutrients in cruciferous vegetables that have a positive effect on your heart health include:8

  • Selenium
  • Flavonoids
  • Anthocyanins
  • Polyphenols
  • Antioxidant enzymes

Cruciferous Vegetables Can Help Prevent Cancer

Cruciferous vegetables are also rich in sulfur-containing compounds called glucosinolates. When you chew or chop cruciferous vegetables, the glucosinolates come into contact with plant enzymes that speed up their breakdown and produce secondary compounds that help prevent cancer.9

These compounds help eliminate carcinogens from your body so they don’t cause DNA damage that can result in cancer. They also prevent normal cells from developing into cancerous cells.

Several studies have also confirmed that the isothiocyanates in cruciferous vegetables, including sulforaphane, have distinct anti-cancer activity. The isothiocyanates spark hundreds of genetic changes, activating some genes that fight cancer and switch off others that fuel tumors.

In one study, sulforaphane was shown to reduce the incidence and rate of chemically induced mammary tumors in animals. It also inhibited the growth of cultured human breast cancer cells, leading to cell death.10 Lead author of the study, Olga Azarenko, said:11

“Breast cancer, the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women, can be protected against by eating cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage and near relatives of cabbage such as broccoli and cauliflower.”

According to Azarenko, sulforaphane works in a similar fashion to the anticancer drugs taxol and vincristine, but without the toxic side effects. Other studies have confirmed the protective benefits of these vegetables for other types of cancer as well, such as:

  • Bladder cancer — Researchers found that the higher the intake of cruciferous vegetables, the lower the risk of bladder cancer12
  • Lung cancer — Researchers found that smokers with a high intake of cruciferous vegetables had a lower risk of developing lung cancer13
  • Prostate cancer — This study, published in PLOS ONE in 2008, discovered that just a few additional portions of broccoli each week could protect men from prostate cancer14
  • Colon cancer — A review of epidemiological studies found a significant inverse relationship between intake of cruciferous vegetables and colon cancer risk.15 In other words, prospective studies show that eating a diet rich in cruciferous vegetables helps prevent the development of colon cancer

Other Health Benefits of Cruciferous Vegetables

While heart disease and cancer prevention are big benefits of cruciferous vegetables, they have a lot more to offer too. Studies show that eating cruciferous vegetables can also:16

Prevent metabolic disorders and reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes Help control weight and reduce your risk of obesity
Prevent respiratory complications from human papilloma virus (HPV) Reduce and prevent inflammation associated with respiratory disorders
Prevent oxidative stress, which can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease Slow down cognitive decline in older age
Exhibit antimicrobial effects against pathogenic bacteria like Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterobacter aerogenes, Salmonella serovar typhimurium, Escherichia coli and Shigella sonnei Prevent asthma
Help boost your body’s natural detoxification pathways

What Are Cruciferous Vegetables?

I’ve already mentioned broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage, some of the most common cruciferous vegetables, but there are others too. The cruciferous vegetables, and vegetables that belong to the cruciferous family, include:17

Cauliflower Collard greens
Kale Kohlrabi
Mustard greens Rutabaga
Turnips Bok choy
Chinese cabbage Arugula
Horseradish Radish
Wasabi Watercress

How Many Cruciferous Vegetables Should You Eat?

It’s currently recommended that adults eat between 2.5 and 3.5 cups of vegetables per day,18 which equals about three to seven servings. There currently is no USDA recommendation for cruciferous vegetables specifically, but adults should have one to three cups of vegetables, including cruciferous, each day, depending on your activity level.19

The way that cruciferous vegetables such as Brussels sprouts are prepared matters too. A 2011 study showed that not only can Brussels sprouts produce enzymes to detoxify your body from cancer-inducing properties but steaming them also brings out the best combination of benefits.20

Boiling, on the other hand, destroys the metabolic processes that release myrosinase and activate glucosinolates, which together generate metabolites.21 And, should you decide to eat them raw, then just the act of chewing can activate those glucosinolates, too.22

At some point, you may have heard that cruciferous vegetables can negatively affect thyroid health or even cause thyroid cancer, rather than prevent it. That’s because the breakdown of glucosinolates can create a compound called goitrin, which can block thyroid hormone production and cause hypothyroidism, or a low functioning thyroid.

The breakdown of glucosinolates also creates compounds that compete with iodine, and inadequate iodine can also lead to hypothyroidism. The cancer concern was raised in a study of Malaysian women who consumed large amounts of cruciferous vegetables.23,24 The women also had a low iodine intake and mild iodine deficiency, which researchers felt contributed to their cancer.

While this is not something to ignore, it’s important to remember that a balanced diet always works best — in other words, make your cruciferous veggies part of your diet, but not your main part, and you won’t have to worry about negative effects on your thyroid gland.

Could This Be the Answer to AFib, NAFLD and Other Diseases?

does ubiquinol help afib

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • CoQ10 is the third-most consumed supplement, after fish oil and multivitamins
  • CoQ10 keeps your mitochondria healthy and plays a crucial role in the production of ATP, the cellular energy required to keep you alive
  • CoQ10 deficiencies have been linked to many health problems, including migraines, heart disease and cancer
  • Conversely, supplementing with CoQ10, or the natural form called ubiquinol, may help improve several chronic health conditions such as AFib, NAFLD and heart failure

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is the third-most consumed supplement,1 yet many people don’t realize how clinically effective it really is.

Although it’s not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a treatment or preventative drug, several new studies show that taking CoQ10 supplements may help address several chronic health conditions, including atrial fibrillation (a-fib), nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), insulin resistance, heart failure, cancer and migraines, to name a few.

Ubiquinol — the reduced, electron-rich form of CoQ10 that your body produces naturally — plays an important role in the electron transport chain of your mitochondria, where it facilitates the conversion of energy substrates and oxygen into the biological energy (adenosine triphosphate or ATP) needed by your cells for life, repair and regeneration.

It’s a fat-soluble antioxidant, meaning it works in the fat portions of your body, such as your cell membranes, where it mops up potentially harmful byproducts of metabolism known as reactive oxygen species (ROS). As such, ubiquinol and CoQ10 supplements help protect your mitochondrial membranes from oxidative damage, and this in turn has been shown to be helpful for a number of health conditions and chronic diseases.

Why CoQ10 Is so Important

Many conditions, including heart disease and migraines — for which CoQ10 has been found beneficial — appear to be rooted in mitochondrial dysfunction.2 CoQ10 is used by every cell in your body, but especially your heart cells.

Cardiac muscle cells have about 5,000 mitochondria per cell, while liver cells have 1,000 to 2,000 mitochondria each.3 As another reference, mitochondria make up about 35% of the volume of cardiac tissue and only 3% to 8% of the volume of skeletal muscle tissue.4

About 90% or more of the ROS in your body are made by your mitochondria.5 Using the analogy of the mitochondria as an engine, the combustion (metabolism) that takes place in there creates exhaust fumes — damaging byproducts when produced in excessive amounts.

One of the functions of CoQ10, or ubiquinol, is to neutralize those byproducts.6 When ubiquinol is lacking, the byproducts remain and begin to damage the cell. Ubiquinol is particularly beneficial for your heart health. C-reactive protein (CRP) is a marker for inflammation, and when your CRP is elevated, it suggests you have a heightened risk for heart disease.7

Two other markers for inflammation are gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT),8 which is an early marker of heart failure, and N-terminal pro b-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP).9

There’s an association between the levels of these two markers and ubiquinol as well. When ubiquinol is supplemented, both these markers go down and genes associated with them are downregulated.

Low CoQ10 levels have also been detected in people with certain types of cancer,10 including lung, breast and pancreatic cancer, as well as melanoma metastasis, further strengthening the metabolic theory of cancer. The word “coenzyme” also provides a clue to its importance; it works synergistically with other enzymes to digest food, for example.

It also has the ability to increase your body’s absorption of important nutrients. More specifically, it helps recycle vitamins C and E,11,12 thereby maximizing their beneficial effects.

CoQ10 Can Help Improve Atrial Fibrillation (AFib)

AFib is an abnormal, often rapid, heart rhythm that occurs when the atria, your heart’s upper chambers, beat out of sync with the ventricles, the heart’s lower chambers. It’s a common symptom in those with heart failure or heart disease but can also occur on its own.

Oxidative stress and increased ROS can play a role in the development of AFib. Conversely, scavenging of ROS and a reduction in oxidative stress have been shown to be an essential part of keeping the heart functioning normally.13

In one study, 102 patients with AFib were divided into two groups. One group was given a CoQ10 supplement while the other group was given a placebo. After 12 months of supplementation, 12 people in the placebo group had AFib episodes compared to only three people in the CoQ10 group.14

CoQ10 Can Stop the Progression of NAFLD

NAFLD is the most common cause of chronic liver disease around the world, with a prevalence of 25%.15 Obesity and insulin resistance increase your risk of NAFLD. Mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative stress, two hallmarks of CoQ10 deficiency, have also been shown to play a role,16 as has choline deficiency, as detailed in “Fatty Liver Disease Is Caused by Choline Deficiency.”

Currently, there are no approved medical treatments for NAFLD. Lifestyle changes, such as elimination of processed vegetable oils and processed carbs, remain the gold standard for managing NAFLD and, hopefully, preventing its progression. Since CoQ10 levels tend to be depleted in those with NAFLD, supplementation has been shown to help reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.17

In one study,18 44 patients were divided into two groups. One group was given 100 mg of CoQ10 each day, while the other was given a placebo. After four weeks of supplementation, the group taking CoQ10 dropped weight and had lower levels of serum AST, a blood marker that indicates liver disease and/or damage.

CoQ10 May Be the Answer for Several Other Conditions

In addition to helping with AFib and NAFLD, CoQ10 may be the answer to correcting several other chronic health conditions, including the following:

High blood pressure — CoQ10 acts directly on your endothelium, dilating your blood vessels and lowering blood pressure.19,20 CoQ10 also decreases aldosterone, a hormone that makes you retain salt and water.21,22 When aldosterone goes down, excess salt and water are excreted through your kidneys, often causing your blood pressure to go down.
Dyslipidemia — In one study,23 101 participants with dyslipidemia were given 120 mg of Coq10 or a placebo every day for 24 weeks. Without taking any lipid-lower drugs, participants taking the CoQ10 had decreases in harmful LDL and triglycerides and increases in total antioxidant capacity.
Heart failure — CoQ10 deficiency is linked to poorer prognosis for those with heart failure.24 Supplementing with CoQ10 can restore normal CoQ10 levels, helping to prevent heart cell damage and significantly improving heart failure.25
Chronic kidney disease — Increased oxidative stress is a major factor in chronic kidney disease and related cases of cardiovascular disease.26 Patients with chronic kidney disease tend to have decreased levels of CoQ10 in their blood. CoQ10 has been shown to improve mitochondrial function and decrease oxidative stress in chronic kidney disease patients, with and without dialysis.27
Systemic inflammation — Studies28,29 show that supplementing with 60 mg to 500 mg of CoQ10 for eight to 12 weeks can significantly reduce tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), IL-6 and CRP; three measures of widespread inflammation.
Stroke — Systemic inflammation, oxidative stress and nerve cell damage play a role in the development of stroke. Studies30 show that supplementing with CoQ10 can reduce ischemic lesions and improve outcomes in patients who have been treated with a statin after having a stroke (statins reduce CoQ10 levels in your body).
Migraine — CoQ10 deficiency is a common underlying factor of idiopathic migraines. Supplementing with CoQ10 can help reduce frequency and severity of migraines and alleviate associated symptoms such as nausea and sensitivity to light.31
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) — In one study,32 86 women with PCOS were given CoQ10 alone, CoQ10 with vitamin E, vitamin alone or a placebo. After eight weeks, the group taking CoQ10 alone had improved levels of sex hormones (lower levels of testosterone and luteinizing hormone) and improved insulin resistance.
Cancer — In one study,33 two women with breast cancer were given fatty acids, antioxidants and 300 mg to 390 mg of CoQ10. After two to three months, mammograms showed no tumors or residual tumor tissue, indicating cancer regression. A review34 in the Journal of Clinical Oncology that looked at how CoQ10 affected cancer treatment found it may help protect the heart and liver from toxicity during treatment.
Insulin resistance — CoQ10 levels are lower in mitochondria in insulin-resistant tissues.35 In one study,36 daily intake of 100 mg of CoQ10 improved insulin resistance and serum insulin levels in patients with markers of metabolic syndrome.

CoQ10 Versus Ubiquinol

As mentioned, ubiquinol is the reduced version of CoQ10 (aka ubiquinone). They’re actually the same molecule, but when CoQ10 is reduced it takes on two electrons, which turns it into ubiquinol. In your body, this conversion occurs thousands of times every second inside your mitochondria.

The flipping back and forth between these two molecular forms is part of the process that transforms food into energy. Ubiquinol production ramps up from early childhood until your mid- to late 20s. By the time you hit 30, it begins to decline.37 Young people are able to use CoQ10 supplements quite well, but older people do better with ubiquinol, as it’s more readily absorbed.

How to Supplement With Ubiquinol

Your body can naturally make CoQ10, but genetic alterations in metabolism, poor diet, oxidative stress, chronic conditions and aging can all interfere with CoQ10 production and lead to CoQ10 deficiency. Statin drugs can also deplete CoQ10.

To maintain good health, an adult body should contain 0.5 to 1.5 g of CoQ1038 and sometimes it takes a supplement to keep you there. Dosing requirements will vary depending on your individual situation and needs.

As a general rule, the sicker you are, the more you need. The suggested dose is usually between 30 mg to 100 mg per day if you’re healthy, or 60 to 1,200 mg daily if you’re sick or have underlying health conditions.39

If you have an active lifestyle, exercise a lot or are under a lot of stress, you may want to increase your dose to 200 to 300 mg per day. Importantly, if you’re on a statin drug, you need at least 100 mg to 200 mg of ubiquinol or CoQ10 per day, or more. Ideally, you’ll want to work with your physician to determine your ideal dose.

The psychological side effects of acetaminophen, aka Tylenol, continue to mount, with research showing users are more likely to make risky decisions. When coupled with past research linking this supposedly safe pain reliever to blunted empathy and emotions, the widespread social effects on society could be immense

Acetaminophen, commonly known by its brand name Tylenol, is one of the most commonly used medications worldwide — and research suggests it could be causing users to engage in more risky behaviors.[1] In the U.S. alone, acetaminophen can be found in more than 600 prescription and over-the-counter drugs and is taken by 23% of — or 52 million — Americans each week.[2]

Many don’t think twice about popping a Tylenol or two to relieve a headache, reduce a fever or ease minor aches and pains or cold and allergy symptoms, but research continues to reveal that this supposedly “safe” pain reliever has more risks than many people realize. Among them are surprising effects on psychological processes such as behavior and perception, including altering willingness to take risks.

Considering that so many people take acetaminophen on a daily basis, even slight changes in risk-taking behaviors “could have important effects on society,” study co-author Baldwin Way, an associate professor of psychology at The Ohio State University, noted in a press release.[3]

Acetaminophen Makes People More Likely to Take Risks

The study involved 189 college students, who took a standard recommended adult dosage of 1,000 milligrams (mg) of acetaminophen or a placebo. They were then asked to rate the riskiness of activities such as bungee jumping, taking a skydiving class, walking home alone at night in an unsafe area and starting a new career in your mid-30s.

Those under the influence of acetaminophen rated these activities as less risky than those who took a placebo. “Acetaminophen seems to make people feel less negative emotion when they consider risky activities — they just don’t feel as scared,” Way said.[4]

In a second part of the study, 545 college students took part in a computer task intended to measure risk-taking behavior. The students had to click a button to inflate a balloon in order to earn money. The bigger the balloon, the more money they would receive, but if the balloon got too big and burst, they would lose their money.

As in the first study, those who took acetaminophen took more risk, pumping the balloons more times and earning more burst balloons, than those who took a placebo. “If you’re risk-averse, you may pump a few times and then decide to cash out because you don’t want the balloon to burst and lose your money,” Way said. “But for those who are on acetaminophen, as the balloon gets bigger, we believe they have less anxiety and less negative emotion about how big the balloon is getting and the possibility of it bursting.”[5]

It’s previously been suggested that those with increased risk-taking on these types of computer-simulated tasks may be more likely to engage in risky behaviors in real-life as well, including using drugs and alcohol, stealing and driving without a seatbelt.[6]

Acetaminophen Blunts Empathy, Positive and Negative Emotions

While potentially increasing risky behaviors, acetaminophen has also been found to blunt both positive and negative emotions. In this way, Way and colleagues revealed in 2015 that over-the-counter acetaminophen provides relief from “pain and pleasures alike,” essentially dampening users’ ability to experience emotionally pleasurable sensations.[7]

The next year, in 2016, Way and colleagues found acetaminophen to be an “empathy killer,”[8] as it reduced users’ empathy in response to others’ pain. Because empathy plays an important role in prosocial and antisocial behaviors, acetaminophen-induced alterations in empathy could be having broad social side effects.[9]

In a 2019 study, Way and colleagues again compared acetaminophen to a “social analgesic,” stating that it blunts “social pain” by reducing the activity of the anterior insula and anterior cingulate brain regions, which are associated with emotional awareness and motivation.[10] Even positive empathy was blunted by the drug.

When people were given 1,000 mg of acetaminophen, then read scenarios about uplifting experiences of other people, the acetaminophen reduced personal pleasure and empathic feelings directed toward others, once again suggesting that the widespread use of acetaminophen could be having a negative effect on prosocial behavior on a societal level.[11]

Acetaminophen has also been found to cause an “inhibition of evaluative processing,”[12] meaning it could alter your ability to make decisions and cause you to react slower or miss errors that you would spot otherwise.[13]

Acetaminophen Is ‘Not Particularly Effective’ or Safe

Acetaminophen’s reputation as a “safe and effective” painkiller is increasingly being called into question, and anyone who uses it should be aware that in addition to psychological effects, acetaminophen is linked to serious physical adverse effects.

GreenMedInfo.com has compiled 236 studies related to acetaminophen’s toxicity, and a European Journal of Hospital Pharmacy editorial concluded, “We have considerable evidence that as well as not being particularly effective, neither is it particularly safe.”[14] Some of the health risks linked to acetaminophen use include:[15]

  • Increased mortality
  • Cardiovascular adverse events, including heart attackstroke and fatal coronary artery disease
  • Gastrointestinal adverse events, including gastroduodenal ulcers and upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage
  • Acute liver failure necessitating transplantation
  • Abnormal liver function

What’s more, acetaminophen has been shown to be ineffective for treating back pain, “practically ineffective” for arthritis and “in the least effective quartile of drugs” for treating postoperative pain. It’s also only modestly effective for migraines and tension-type headaches, while no evidence shows that it works to relieve pain related to cancer, menstrual cramps, rheumatoid arthritis or the neck.[16]

 

Considering its significant risks — including psychological risks that are only beginning to be understood and explored–and questionable effectiveness, it makes sense to try nontoxic, natural pain relief options first — of which there are hundreds to choose from.

Coronavirus updates for Australia and the World

Australia 26th November 8:07 pm Central time. States update their stats at different times of the day.
27,864 Infections: 1 in SA, 3 in NT, 7 in WA, 0 in all other States today
Local Infections: 1 in SA
907 Deaths: 0 today, 29 days since last death
25,565 Recovered: These numbers increasing daily
84 Active Cases, 22 in SA
24 In hospital,  0 in ICU and 0 on Ventilator
9,878,139 Tests – usually 30,000 or more daily tests.  46,072 so far today


World infections 26th November 2020  5:29 am
60,738,524 Infections

1,426,731 Deaths
41,692,304 Recovered

103,404 in Serious or Critical Condition


As of 26th November 2020 at 5:31 am, Australia is 147th on the list sorted by total cases per million people, and 125th sorted by deaths per million people.
The lower on the list, the better we are controlling the virus spread and treating the patients compared to other countries.  Active cases are now dropping daily as any new cases are outweighed by more recoveries from previous infections.


COVID-19 Vaccine Update: Is Pfizer Vaccine really 90% Effective?
Read the full article here:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/first-covid-19-vaccine-90-effective

Pfizer is claiming, without evidence, that its vaccine is “90% effective.” But this claim is little more than corporate propaganda designed to drive up stock prices through false projections. Pfizer and Moderna made these claims through press releases only, without a shred of actual data or any information on side effects.
The Pfizer coronavirus vaccine requires storage at -70C (-94F), much colder than the North Pole.
Why must these vaccines be kept at -70C?
Because they contain potentially hazardous ingredients that have never been used in vaccines before.
mRNA vaccines undergoing Covid-19 clinical trials, including the Moderna vaccine, rely on a nanoparticle-based “carrier system” containing PEG (a synthetic chemical called polyethylene glycol).
My followers of this site will know that I have long declared that PEG has serious health issues, especially when included in some cheap health supplements, which I never recommend.
PEGs cause adverse immune reactions, including life-threatening anaphylaxis, and because PEGs can be found in many processed foods, 70% of the population in the Western World may be sensitized to PEG, possibly resulting in reduced efficacy of the vaccine and an increase in adverse side effects.
“Adverse side effects” means that the person requires admission to hospital for treatment!
If  Covid-19 vaccines containing PEG gain FDA approval, the exposure to PEG for millions of people may well be disastrous, with many more patients in hospital from the vaccine than from Coronavirus.
Moderna publications indicate show they are aware of PEG safety risks but more concerned with the bottom line. Recent Moderna vaccine trials showed 100% of human subjects in the high-dose trial group experienced adverse reactions.
Ian Haydon
was selected for the Moderna COVID vaccine trial based on his robust good health, and was one of three among 15 volunteers to experience serious adverse events in the high dose group. Less than 12 hours after vaccination, Haydon suffered muscle aches, vomiting, a 103.2 degree fever and lost consciousness. His Moderna trial supervisor instructed Haydon to call 911 and Haydon described himself as being the “sickest in his life.” Moderna let Haydon believe the illness was just a sad coincidence unrelated to the jab. Moderna never told Haydon he was suffering an adverse event.
Moderna gets low marks on both vaccine safety and transparency. Moderna was formed in 2010, re-branded in 2016, and has not yet produced a single commercial vaccine, but given millions of dollars by the US Government to attempt to produce an effective COVID vaccine!
LNP’s (Lipid Nanoparticles)
used in these vaccines cause hyperinflammatory responses in the body, leading to severe reactions, hospitalization and potentially DEATH.
LNP’s encapsulate mRNA constructs to prevent degradation and improve cellular uptake, also activate the immune system, described as “inherent adjuvant properties.” So LNP’s cause hyperinflammatory responses, to induce the creation of antibodies. This allows the vaccine manufacturer to claim high “effectiveness” rates, even when those adjuvants cause severe adverse reactions.

NOTE: The infected figure quoted is misleading, as this is the total confirmed from day 1 of the pandemic. We must subtract the recovered figure (and the deaths) to get the theoretical active cases number. Given that there are many false positive tests, and many people who recovered do not get tested again because of the absence or disappearance of symptoms and the shortage of test kits or facilities, they are not counted as recovered, so the actual active figure is generally significantly less.
For Australia, I quote only the actual active case number, not the theoretical case number.
It is impossible to arrive at an accurate figure for active cases world wide, so I no longer quote this number.
In some countries with large populations in remote areas and few medical facilities, infections and deaths go untreated and unreported. In more developed countries where money talks, numbers are profoundly increased artificially to create fear and to receive more Government cash, as corruption is widespread in the medical industry.

Statistics
The old saying: “There are lies, damn lies, and then there are statistics” is true when attempting to decipher the real truth about Coronavirus numbers. In China, it is reported that numbers were covered up, and true infections and deaths may have been 10 times the number reported. Doctors were told to use other descriptions on death certificates, claiming pneumonia, heart attack, etc instead of Coronavirus as the cause of death.
In the Western world, the media thrives on death. Doctors are urged to blame Coronavirus when there are often several other health conditions that actually caused the death, when a true diagnosis has never been made and only suspected. Why? High death numbers force politicians to supply benefits to health workers, more equipment, etc. Follow the money.
Deaths from heart attack and other serious conditions has dropped off remarkably in recent weeks, because those deaths are now being reported as Coronavirus deaths.

A recent Stanford University study found that in California, many more people than estimated have unknowingly contracted the virus, mostly with no symptoms at all, so the actual death rate is much lower than stated. Read more:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/stanford-team-finds-evidence-covid-19-mortality-rate-is-as-low-as-2-17-times-lower-than-whos-estimate

Despite the “Death Virus” headlines, the chart here shows Flu killed more people world wide than COVID-19 in the first 3 months of 2020.
However, 2 months on at the end of May 2020, COVID-19 has supposedly killed over 365,000 people world wide. At the same time in Australia, Flu infections and deaths down by 90% with Australia and other Southern countries coming into the Winter Flu season. Forward to October, Australian flu numbers are almost non-existent instead of ramping up again. Why? Partly from the benefits of social distancing and hand washing, but I believe mainly from people staying at home, not going to doctors, not getting the flu shot (even though Government advertising tells them to), and staying away from Hospitals.

Note that deaths are listed as caused by Coronavirus without autopsies or testing, only by “guessing” without any confirmation. Because people who die nearly always have other conditions, those other conditions or medications may have been the cause or certainly co-contributors to those deaths.
With Winter over in Australia in October, Flu deaths are the lowest ever, undoubtedly because they have been labeled as Coronavirus deaths.
But did these people die from Coronavirus, Influenza, Cardiovascular or Lung disease, Diabetes, Obesity, Prescription Medication that lowers Immunity, or some other co-morbidity?
The truth is: When we get old, when we are in a Nursing Home, when we are sick, frail, on prescription medication, when we suffer from decades of processed food, then we have low immunity, and we get sick, and we die.
USA studies found only 6% of those who died in the “pandemic” actually died of COVID-19, the other 94% died from their co-morbidities and their Coronavirus positive tests had little or nothing to do with their death!

Dr. Anthony Fauci says COVID-19 may be no more deadly than seasonal Flu. Read more:

Normal Deaths

Normally, over 60 million people die every day world-wide from all causes, which is over 164,000 people every day.
As of 23rd July 2020, the Coronavirus death rate is 3,737 every day, or just 2.2% of total deaths attributed to Coronavirus.
When we consider that most Coronavirus deaths are people in their 80’s and 90’s who have other factors that increase death risk and who probably would have died soon anyway from existing conditions, then Coronavirus deaths cannot be considered that deadly.

Deaths from all Causes dropping

In the USA, deaths from all causes has dropped, the lowest in 10 years, in spite of all of the COVID-19 Death headlines. So is there really a pandemic? Read more:

Should I get the APP?

There are more than privacy concerns with “The App”. Read more about how the USA are promoting the App and the dangers in using it:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/contact-tracing-apps-violate-privacy

Australian Death Rate

The Australian death rate from Coronavirus was less than 1.5% of infected people in July, but increased to 3% by November, thanks to the Victorian outbreak in Nursing Homes. This compares to world-wide deaths 6% in July, dropping to 2.5% in November.

Ventilators

Ventilators are extensively used in hospitals. In the USA, hospitals are paid tens of thousands of dollars by the Government for every patient who is put on a ventilator, so many receive ventilator treatment even when the requirement is in doubt, but they may be causing more harm than benefits. Read about corruption in hospitals from a front-line nurse:

www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/urgent-warning-about-ventilator-use-on-coronavirus-patients-new-research-study

We have achieved minimal infections due to the isolating and social distancing directives.
Infections are already reducing, but to contain the virus, new cases must stop for 2 weeks, with every infected person fully recovered.

Deaths in Perspective

The media loves headlines about the COVID-19 death toll, but fail to mention:
Every day, over 150,000 people die world-wide, but over 200,000 are born, so the world population will double every 35 years.
From 1st January to 30th May 2020, the average death rate from Coronavirus was about 2,000 per day world-wide, and in Australia, less than 1 death per day, which is almost insignificant in the daily deaths from all other causes.
– Every day, 48 Australians die from heart disease, and every year hundreds of Australians die from being overweight or obese.

www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/mexico-tackles-covid-19-pandemic-with-junk-food-bans.
Why are there no Australian laws about fizzy drinks and fries?
– Every day, over 50 Australians die from smoking. Why is it still legal to smoke, and why is tobacco not outlawed?
– Every day, the flu kills 10 Australians, with the rate climbing in spite of record flu jabs administered.
– Every day, breast cancer kills over 8 Australian women.
– Every day, asthma kills at least one Australian.
– Every day, motor accidents kill 3 Australians, and over 60 are injured or disabled.
– Australian bushfires killed 33 Australians in the last year.

Effect of Warmer Climate on Deaths

Why is it that the Australian States with the warmest climate have the lowest Coronavirus death rate?
Statistics at 1st November 2020:

Warm States are:
Northern Territory: 38 cases, 0 deaths (0% death rate)
South Australia: 501 cases, 4 deaths (0.8% death rate, most imported from cruise ships)
Western Australia: 768 cases, 9 deaths (1% death rate, most imported from cruise ships)
Queensland: 1171 cases, 6 deaths (0.5% death rate)
Cooler States are:
New South Wales: 4421 cases, 53 deaths (1.2% death rate)
Victoria: 20,347 cases, 819 deaths (4% death rate)
Tasmania: 230 cases, 13 deaths (5.6% death rate)
Death rates in cooler climates are always higher, because:
1. The body’s immune system does not work as well at cooler temperatures
2. People spend more time indoors, where infection rates are 20 times higher than outdoors
3. People have lower Vitamin D, less fresh air, and poor circulation.

Social Distancing

Social Distancing may actually worsen epidemic outcomes in the long term, as isolation causes reduced immunity, mental problems, fear of unemployment and uncertain financial future and more. Read a detailed explanation:
https://www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/social-distancing-may-worsen-epidemic-outcomes/

Chinese Death Rate

Males have been dying at a greater incidence than females, according to a study of 55,000 deaths. It is not a hormonal difference, it is the fact that smoking is much more evident in the male population. If we smoke we die. Of course, everyone dies sooner or later, but smokers die sooner, if not from the Coronavirus, then lung cancer, pneumonia or something else.
Deaths from Coronavirus generally only occur when there are other health factors involved. In order of death rate:

  • Cardiovascular disease (statin and blood pressure medication)
  • Diabetes (obesity, statin and blood pressure medication)
  • Chronic respiratory disease (a result of low Vitamin D3 caused by statins)
  • Hypertension (blood pressure medication)
  • Cancer (immune-depressing drugs)
  • Others including other medications that reduce immunity

What is Coronavirus?

Coronaviruses are a family of viruses containing over a hundred different strains, seven of which cause the common cold. Some of these viruses exist naturally within the human virome, and never express themselves pathogenically, but will potentially cause false positives through the many different COVID-19 testing methods.
Read more about the Virome:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/profound-implications-of-the-virome-for-human-health-and-autoimmunity

This group of viruses have been around for a long time, first discovered in 1937 in bird populations. In the 1960’s found in humans and normally responsible for the common cd. They can be zoonotic (transferred back and forth between animals and humans) and cause diseases in mammals and birds. Sometimes these viruses mutate, often coming from bats, snakes, pigs (swine flu) or other animals. Other mutated versions of Coronavirus have been SARS and MERS.
The SARS virus is well-documented as a weaponised version of Coronavirus, built by the Chinese Virus Laboratory in Wuhan and caused the previous SARS Epidemic. Read more:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/sars-cov-2-a-biological-warfare-weapon
This virus, originating in Wuhan, China, now named SARS-CoV-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2), causes a disease, originally code-named Novel Coronavirus 2019 (nCoV-2019) but then re-named to COVID-19 that spreads more rapidly than SARS, MERS and Flu viruses, but causes death only in those whose immune system is compromised, mainly in those over 50 ears old, mainly in the 80+ range, or those subject to air pollution (e.g. in Wuhang, the industrial area of China where air pollution is extreme) because COVID-19 affects the lungs.

COVID-19 is comparatively rare in the very young, partly because of less exposure years to pollution, and partly because the young generally have better immunity.
Viruses are very small, typically between 0.004 to 0.1 microns in size. The Coronavirus is about 0.125 microns, which is fairly large for a virus. The electron microscope image above shows the red “spikes” around the virome, giving a corona,  which gives this virus it’s name.

In humans, COVID-19 causes respiratory infections which are typically mild, and the average person has little to worry about, as most symptoms vary from nothing at all, to a mild condition similar to a common cold. The common cold is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract. Over 200 viral types are associated with colds, including Rhinovirus (a type of picornavirus with 99 known serotypes), Human Coronavirus, Influenza viruses, Adenoviruses, human respiratory syncytial virus (Orthopneumovirus), Enteroviruses other than Rhinoviruses, human Parainfluenza viruses, and human Metapneumovirus.

Past outbreaks of SARS, originating in China from Avian Flu (Bird Flu), another Coronavirus, and MERS, originating in the Middle East that sporadically jumps from camels to humans, spread to many other countries around the world and still cause problems in some areas, but the media is quiet about these as they are “old news”.
Coronavirus appears to be more easily spread than SARS or MERS, but death from Coronavirus is still significantly less than SARS or MERS. The “RS” in SARS and MERS refers to “Respiratory Syndrome” and deaths are caused by pneumonia-like infection of the lungs. Even the flu causes more deaths than the Coronavirus, but the media is quiet about this, as they want “fear headlines”. The Flu killed 40,000 Americans over their 2019-2020 Flu season, double the number of Coronavirus deaths world-wide at the time. With the population of the USA at just 4% of the world, this makes the Flu 50 times more lethal than the Coronavirus, but the media is full of “Deadly Coronavirus” news.

Update 15th March: One report from National Science Review suggests that there are now 2 types of COVID-19.
Type L, the early version that is transmitted quickly, and the more recent type S which is not as contagious. This report is discredited by University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research so at this time there are more questions than answers about Coronavirus.

Symptoms

Many infected people who have a healthy immune system are Asymptomatic (have no symptoms) or have very mild symptoms.
These people have been blamed for infecting others, but according to a WHO statement in June, it is extremely rare for an Asymptomatic person to spread COVID-19 to another person.
But people with a poor immune system will have symptoms, and are the main way the virus spreads, especially if they have been active in the community (before isolation or quarantine applied).
Symptoms vary, but these are some to look out for:

  • Fever
  • Sore Throat
  • Dry Cough
  • Muscle pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Pneumonia-like illness
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Blood thickening (increasing risk of blood clots)

Anyone with any of these symptoms should report to their doctor or hospital or any of the helplines set up in many areas.
Do NOT report physically, use the telephone and only report physically if instructed to do so.

Man-Made Coronavirus?

A study by Greek scientists, published 27th January 2020, examined the genetic relationships of COVID-2019 and found:
“the new coronavirus provides a new lineage for almost half of its genome, with no close genetic relationships to other viruses within the subgenus of sarbecovirus,” and has an unusual middle segment never seen before in any Coronavirus concluding that it could not have “jumped” from a bat or other animal to humans. Reports indicate that there are sections of the AIDS/HIV virus and the Influenza virus contained in COVID-19, confirmed by the fact that doctors in China, France and now Australia have been using AIDS medications to treat Coronavirus.
The Chinese have tested every animal, dead or alive in the Wuhan Seafood Market and every test came back negative for Coronavirus, and not bats, dead or alive, had been sold or used in any way in the market.
Chinese doctors worked back among patients to find the very first person suffering from Coronavirus, treated in hospital on 1st December 2019, and found that this man had NEVER been to the Wuhan Seafood Market! In fact, out of the first 41 cases, 13 had NEVER been to the market.

This means that we are dealing with a brand new type of “man-made” Coronavirus. The scientists rejected the original hypothesis that the virus originated from random natural mutations between different Coronaviruses.

Coincidence: Research on a Coronavirus vaccine started 5 years ago, funded by Bill and Melinda Gates?
Coincidence: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation forecast a Coronavirus pandemic before the pandemic existed.
Coincidence: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation co-hosted a pandemic exercise in late 2019 that simulated a global Coronavirus outbreak.
Coincidence: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation also fund the group who owns the patent to the deadly virus and were working on a vaccine to solve the predicted crisis.

Coincidence: There is a BSL-4 Virus Research Laboratory at  the Wuhan Institute of Virology (10 miles from the Wuhan Seafood market) – one of only a handful of sites in the world sanctioned by WHO (World Health Organisation) that is certified to work with Ebola virus, small pox, Coronavirus and Bats, and is linked to China’s biological weapons program, which in the past has developed modified Influenza viruses as part of it’s Chemical Warfare program. The Chinese have been developing deadly Coronaviruses for a long time, which may possibly relate to the outbreaks of Avian (“Bird”) Flu, Swine Flu, etc. The USA was also conducting virus research about the same time, until all research of this nature was deemed to be too dangerous, and was prohibited in the USA, but of course, not in China.

Coincidence: Faucci and Bill Gates predicted this pandemic in 2017. Watch this video of an interview with Bill Gates: Sorry, this video was removed 26th April for “violating YouTube’s Terms of Service” in other words, YouTube, owned by Microsoft, are censoring any information that tells the truth and discredits the big drug companies.
This article may or may not remain on this site because Governments fear that releasing this information may make the World wide idiotic panic even worse, and my Google statistics are dropping rapidly daily as they are censoring this type of information. I believe in truth at any cost, something we rarely get from the “fake news” propagated by the Big Drug Companies we see on television daily.

Fake News

How much information on Coronavirus is “Fake News?”
It seems that if we do not watch the news, we are uninformed, but if we do watch the news, we are misinformed.
Read just one example of the famous Forbes publication reversing completely the result of a scientific study on the origin of Coronavirus:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/forbes-caught-in-blatant-censoring-act

WHO – World Health Organisation

The WHO receives much of it’s money from drug companies, but in order to keep the cash coming in, the WHO must protect the drug companies. First, by encouraging vaccinations and pharmaceutical drugs, second by attempting to squash any natural therapies that hurt the drug company profits.

How does COVID-19 infect the body?

There are about 40 to 50 trillion cells in the human body, plus another 100 trillion or so bacteria and other cells.
Every cell has a cell membrane on the outside, a nucleus containing our DNA, and our mitochondria in between.
The cell membrane is a complex structure. It allows nutrients to enter and feed the cell, it allows waste products to exit the cell, it controls the amount of water in the cell, and it keeps unwanted visitors out, like viruses. For a virus to enter the cell, it requires some weakness in the membrane, which happens when we have poor immunity. When the virus enters the cell, it takes it over and replicates itself. If the virus cannot find a host (one of our cells) it dies, then breaks down, and the body either uses the remains as food, or expels the waste.
Cells with important attributes in the membrane, such as high pH (alkalinity), Zinc, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Magnesium, Zinc and other Vitamins and minerals, are generally impervious to foreign  invaders.
This is why people with a diet of processed foods, junk foods that are deficient in all of the things we need, are the ones who will suffer most or even die when they get hit with a virus.
COVID-19 infects the blood
Doctors first thought that Coronavirus started attacking the lungs, it is now apparent that it attacks hemoglobin in red blood cells. Hemoglobin molecules contain 2 oxygen molecules and 2 iron molecules, which hemoglobin needs to carry oxygen to every cell in the body.
Research shows that the virus targets hemoglobin, binding to the iron and breaking it loose from the hemoglobin molecule, stopping the hemoglobin from carrying oxygen. When enough hemoglobin is damaged, there is less oxygen carrying capacity, and the patient has respiratory problems. Lung cells become toxic and inflammatory, leading to pneumonia and cytokine storm. Inflammation causes capillaries to break easily and coagulant proteins rush in, forming tiny blood clots and further reducing oxygen absorption, leading to organ damage and critical illness.
Autopsies show tiny clots and dead cells within the capillaries of the lungs, as well as distended blood vessels in every organ in the body, caused by severe inflammation and increasing risk of strokes, blood clots, heart attacks and organ failure.

Obesity, Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease
Over 20% of Coronavirus patients with severe infection admitted to hospital had diabetes or hyperglycemia (pre-diabetes), a similar number had cardiovascular conditions, and again, most of those were overweight or obese. All of these conditions already cause hemoglobin problems, and they are the most likely to die.

Boosting the immune system will help people recover from COVID-19, but having a healthy immune system will help defeat the virus before it gets a foothold.
Every cell in the body has many receptors, designed to allow entry of certain nutrients. Researchers have now found that the receptor for ACE Inhibitors and ARB’s (common blood pressure drugs) target a cell receptor, and this is the entry point for the Coronavirus.

What Causes Coronavirus Deaths?

1. Poor Immune System
Only those people with poor immune systems and other medical conditions are dying. This is common among older people, because their prescribed medication makes it worse, other medical conditions make it worse, and their uptake of Vitamin D is worse, and worse again because most are taking statin drugs. Rarely, a slightly younger person dies, but invariably when their immune system is compromised, their diet is poor, they live in a polluted area, and have other existing medical conditions (along with dangerous medications that often reduce immunity).
So, age does not increase risk.
Lack of immunity increases risk.

This can be prevented by high-dose supplements of Vitamins C and D3, Selenium, Iodine, etc that can bring their immunity up to reasonable levels. Almost all seniors are on statin medication that damages Vitamin D levels, and locking them up in a Nursing Home ensures they will get no Vitamin D from the sun.

2. Cytokine Storm
Inflammation can cause a Cytokine Storm, where large numbers of white blood cells are activated and release inflammatory cytokines, in turn activating yet more white blood cells, giving a positive feedback loop, in turn causing a major immune reaction that can be deadly. Cytokine storms are said to be the cause of a majority of deaths in the Spanish Flu, Swine Flu, Epstein–Barr virus, Pneumonia, and especially COVID-19. Cytokine Storms build into Sepsis. Lab results are typically high in C-reactive protein, sedimentation rate and/or IL6 indicate that a storm is mounting. High-dose IV Vitamin C can help stop or limit these storms and the onset of Sepsis. Vitamin D3 has a unique advantage of improving immunity, yet helping to moderate an immune system in overdrive.
Another supplement to use that helps prevent a cytokine storm is Astaxanthin. Read more about Astaxanthin here:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/astaxanthin-helps-alleviate-cytokine-storm.

3. Diet
Unhealthy diets cause 11 million deaths every year, more than tobacco and high blood pressure deaths combined. Bad diets reduce immunity, making people more susceptible to all disease including Coronavirus, cancer, cardiovascular, Alzheimer’s, etc.
Always eat fresh, organic food, preferable grown locally, to add decades of healthy living.
Read more about the dangers of processed food:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/ultraprocessed-food-makes-you-vulnerable-to-covid-19

4. Toxins
Modern processed food is full of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, hormones, additives and often radioactive particles. In China, there are no restrictions or monitoring of toxins in agriculture, so any food products originating in China are not recommended to be consumed.

The moral of this story:
If we eat junk food, ignore a healthy lifestyle, ignore health supplements, suffer chronic stress, we will DIE, if not from the virus, then from the Flu (just as deadly), cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s or any other “modern” diseases that almost never existed a hundred years ago.
If we expect a miracle vaccination to cure the virus from the Big Drug Companies, that is a myth, and most people DIE by that myth.
5. Blood type
Studies in Europe and Australia showed that people with Type A blood have a 45% higher risk of developing severe COVID-19 if infected, but people with Type O had a 35% lower risk.
Other studies were less conclusive, but in general people withType O were less likely to be tested positive for Coronavirus.

The 5G Connection

Coincidence: Recently 130,000 5G antennas were installed in Wuhan city, also large 5G installations were installed in Iran and in Northern Italy, and these are the three places where Coronavirus has spread fastest and caused the most deaths. The cruise ship Diamond Princess that held passengers in their cabins for weeks because of a Coronavirus outbreak was also recently fitted with a 5G installation ship-wide. Of course, this is not proof, but it is well-known that the extremely high frequency radiation from 5G (10 times the power and up to 26 times the frequency) damages DNA and reduces immunity, and although 5G has some technical benefits, the cost to the human race is high. Scientific studies on 5G prove the danger, but telecommunications companies ignore the risk and continue the 5G rollout which is a multi-trillion dollar business.
4G wavelengths travel along the surface of the skin, but 5G penetrates deep into the body at pulsed frequencies up to 90 GHz, disrupting cell membranes and damaging our DNA.

Coronavirus Vaccination?

Doctors are only looking for a new vaccine, overlooking proven natural therapies that build immunity to all disease!
Vaccines can save people, but also kill people. The reported average is one death per 1 million people injected with any vaccine, however most go unreported because the deaths are normally reported as:

  • Some organ failure (caused by the vaccine)
  • Some variation of a disease that was caused by the vaccine
  • The vaccine caused reduced immunity

So if every person in the world was vaccinated (an impossibility) then using reported statistics, at least 7,000 people would be reportedly killed by the vaccine, and probably at least 10 times that number.
So health officials must weigh up how many can be saved by a vaccine versus how many would be killed or harmed by the vaccine.
Even Bill Gates, in a rare interview, admitted that the current flu vaccine does not work well in seniors, and that any new Coronavirus vaccine would probably harm 700,000 people! Read here:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/bill-gates-admits-700000-people-will-be-harmed-or-killed-by-his-covid-19-solution
Unfortunately, doctors ignore the natural therapies which are proven to destroy viruses and without the dangerous side-effects of vaccines and prescription medication.

Because they make a fortune on vaccinations, and are protected from law suits when the vaccination fails, harms or kills someone!

After China’s 2002 SARS-CoV outbreak, teams of US & foreign scientists first attempted to develop Coronavirus vaccines. They vaccinated animals with the four most promising vaccines, which seemed successful as all the animals developed a strong antibody response to Coronavirus. But when they exposed the vaccinated animals to the wild virus, the results were horrifying. Vaccinated animals suffered hyper-immune responses including inflammation throughout their bodies, especially in their lungs. This same “enhanced immune response” was discovered during human testing of the failed RSV vaccine tests in the 1960s when two children died from the vaccine.

Coronavirus Cure?

Using old technology in a new way for a better, faster cure than any vaccination:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/did-this-scientist-develop-a-cure-for-covid-19

Coronavirus Test Kits

Most testing is carried out using various PCR (polymerase chain reaction), or rtPCR (real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction) tests, using nasal and throat swabs, and is unreliable after the first week of infection, where it may disappear in the throat but continues to multiply in the lungs.
PCR tests were developed at Berlin in January 2020, then in the United Kingdom, in South Korea, in China and the United States. Older versions of the test kits caused inconclusive results due to faulty reagents, and were not reliable until 28 February 2020, and it was not until then that state and local laboratories in the USA were permitted to begin testing.
There are still many false positives, and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) admit that the test kits do not always work properly. The USA supplies test kits for many parts of the world, but Australia has their own, developed in South Australia by SA Pathology, which give results much faster. Accuracy remains to be seen, but appears to be more successful than tests from other countries, but still gives many false positives.
Read more about the evolution of the test process:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/was-the-covid-19-test-meant-to-detect-a-virus
And more recent testing information:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/are-public-health-decisions-based-on-inaccurate-covid-tests
And an explanation of the folly of the test, where the presence of 0.2% of the genome of  a SARS type virus is classed as an infection, when in fact the subject may have no actual infection, or may have had a common cold:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/the-folly-of-new-cases-war-deception-and-the-crux-of-covid-19

Because there are so many different strains of the Coronavirus, including about 7 strains responsible for the Common Cold, testing often reveals an “indeterminate result” but the testing technician must give only a positive or negative result and nothing in-between, so to be on the “safe side” all indeterminate tests are classified as positive for COVID-19, so many of these results are a false positive. The “safe side” is not safe when we consider that the drug companies want to drive the fear that forces Governents to spend untold millions on tests and vaccine research, driving huge profits for the drug companies, while millions lose jobs and entire countries go broke.
In addition, humans have a natural virome (billions of friendly and helpful viruses)  that often contain Coronaviruses, that sit happily in the body doing no harm, but the tests can give a false positive again when encountering this virus.

Corruption in Testing

Many test labs are falsifying test results, probably for financial gain. Read more:

And even more:

Pregnant Women

A small Chinese study of 6 mothers who were positive for COVID-19 and who had cesarean deliveries, all had babies free from the virus, but had high levels of antibodies IgG and IgM (Imminoglobulins G and M), indicating that antibodies to the virus were present. Normally IgG passes across the placenta, but IgM does not due the the larger molecule size, but the babies acquired IgM in some way. Later testing found the babies did not develop the virus.

Medical Treatment

Standard treatment in Western countries is not always correct, sometimes completely wrong and ineffective.
Anti-viral medications have had some degree of success, but can have significant side-effects.
Many doctors in China, France, Italy, Spain and more recently in the USA, are using drugs “off-label” (i.e. not approved for use for COVID-19) such as chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, lopinavir-ritonavir, favipiravir, remdesivir, ribavirin, interferon, convalescent plasma, steroids, and anti–IL-6 inhibitors, based on either their in vitro antiviral or anti-inflammatory properties.

The Malaria drugs Hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil), and Chloroquine are generic drugs used to treat lupus, arthritis and malaria, and are claimed relatively safe, with the main side effect being stomach irritation, though they can cause echocardiogram and vision changes (what? heart and eye problems are safe?). Heart side effects include elongating the QT wave, meaning alteration of electrical activity in the heart, possibly causing seizure, fainting and sudden death.

Chloroquine acts as a zinc ionophore, allowing more zinc into the cells, where it promotes death of the virus.
So it is really the Zinc rather than the drug that kills the virus.

Update: Hydroxychloroquine is ONLY effective in the presence of Zinc. Read more:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/hydroxychloroquine-needs-zinc-to-be-effective-against-covid-19-infection-doctor-says

Read more about the benefits and dangers of Chloroquine at:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/antimalarial-medications-a-covid-19-treatment-option.

Hydroxychloroquine has been found useful as a preventive rather than a cure by Chinese doctors, but can moderate symptoms if administered to a sick person.
Australian doctors announced on 21st March that a trial is starting on a combination of an AIDS anti-viral drug Kaletra (a mixture of anti-HIV medications) combined with Hydroxychloroquine. This combination has had better success in-vitro when combined, much better than each individually, but we will see what happens in real people.

French doctors have conducted a successful study with a combination of Hydroxychloroquine and the antibiotic azithromycin (azithromycin is used to prevent bacterial pneumonia). This is surprising, since antibiotics generally reduce immunity, the benefit is probably due to reduced bacterial complications in the lungs that are damaged by the COVID-19 virus.
Fake News on Hydroxychloroquine:
Articles published in the Lancet and on television, even in Australia, claimed that Hydroxychloroquine does not work for COVID-19 and is very dangerous and can kill people, coincidentally just after President Trump said he was using it. Red faces everywhere when the truth was uncovered: This article was a total fabrication (lie) produced not by doctors, but by “spin” people with no medical training, presumably hired to discredit Trump! No retractions that I have seen on Australian TV because no one wants to admit that they lied.

Corticosteroids have been effective in reducing death rate among critically ill patients, typically dexamethasone, hydrocortisone, or methylprednisolone, again with their long list of side-effects.

Quercetin is also being studied as a much safer alternative to Chloroquine. Quercetin is a natural plant flavonol, found in highest concentrations in red onions and kale, and present in many other foods.
Quercetin is also a zinc ionophore, allowing more zinc into the cells to help destroy the virus, but because it is a natural product that cannot be patented by the drug companies, there is no money available for studies. Read more:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/is-quercetin-a-safer-alternative-to-hydroxychloroquine

Remdesivir is an anti-viral drug originally intended for treating the Ebola virus, and has widespread use in Coronavirus patients with varying degrees of success. The WHO states that Remdesivir is ineffective for Coronavirus, but the FDA has approved it for use!

Tocilizumab is an immuno-supressant drug, normally used in rheumatoid arthritis and systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
It has black box warnings against combining with other immuno-suppressant drugs such as Corticosteroids or Methotrexate.
It is a humanized monoclonal antibody against the IL6 (Interleukin-6) receptor, and has some success recently in reducing risk of mortality when given within 2 days of a patient admitted to critical care.

In Australia, symptoms have been very mild, and patients have recovered with “only the use of Paracetamol” (Acetaminophen in the USA). What did these doctors learn at medical school?
How could they forget the basic rule by the ancient Greek physician Parmenides about 2,500 years ago: “Give me the power to create a fever and I can cure any disease.”

With the world-wide introduction of Aspirin, the Spanish Flu killed up to 50 million people, but most would have survived if they had NOT taken Aspirin, which lowers body temperature.
Paracetamol (Acetaminophen or Tylenol in the USA, also Panadol in other countries) also lowers body temperature, but fever is the basic method by which the body defeats disease, so removing the fever only exacerbates the disease.
Apart from reducing fever, Paracetamol destroys Glutathione, the body’s “Master Antioxidant” which is the most important thing we need to defeat disease, and Paracetamol damages the liver (many people on the liver transplant waiting list are there because of Paracetamol overdose).
In Australia, doctors still recommend Paracetamol (Acetaminophen or Tylenol in the USA) for every COVID-19 patient, which increases risk of sickness, liver damage and death!
For a comparison of Coronavirus to the Spanish Flu, read more:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/how-does-covid-19-compare-to-the-spanish-flu

I think more promising is convalescent plasma treatment, where a sick person is given a transfusion of blood plasma from a patient who has recovered from the virus. This plasma contains antibodies that have already defeated the virus, and side-effects should be near zero in theory.

HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy)

Vitamins C and D are finally being used to treat Coronavirus!

At Last! 7th April 2020: I have been telling people for 10 years about these benefits, while the drug companies dismiss the benefits as “fake claims”, afraid of losing millions of dollars when cheap, readily available Vitamins beat most drugs hands down.
Now doctors in the USA are following China’s lead and using these Vitamins, and eventually Australian doctors will get the message too. Read the full story:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/vitamins-c-and-d-finally-adopted-as-coronavirus-treatment

The benefits of IV (Intravenous) Vitamin C therapy have been known for a long time, but doctors are strangely reluctant to use it!  The Chinese are now using Vitamin C therapy, but Western doctors are still failing to use the most basic, inexpensive and effective tools available. Vitamin C supplements are effective to prevent or minimise COVID-19 but daily doses of over about 9,000 mg (or up to 20,000 mg in divided doses every 3 to 4 hours) can cause stomach upset, so for treating patients with severe symptoms, 50,000 mg or more should be administered by IV which by-passes the stomach, and has almost zero side-effects.
See the article about New York doctors achieving significant results with Vitamin C at only 1500 mg every 3 or 4 hours given by IV:

I receive the JAMA Network updates daily, which contains the latest medical info that doctors use to treat Coronavirus. No mention of any vitamin or any other alternative health medicine or supplement, and they even say NOT to use Chloroquine or Hydroxychloroquine even though they are effective when combined with Zinc. No wonder these doctors are watching patients die.

Fraud in WHO and CDC

To say that the WHO and the CDC were fraudulent would be an understatement. Read more in this article:

Can we get these drugs now?

In theory, yes, Hydroxychloroquine (also Chloroquine) is “off-label” but doctors in the USA can prescribe it. Unfortunately there are not enough supplies, as all available stockpiles are used in studies and treatment of desperately ill people.

Get off some drugs

Do NOT continue taking Statins. Statins (cholesterol drugs) cause the liver to make less cholesterol, but also reduce production of Vitamin D, and Vitamin D is one of the best defenses against all disease, including COVID-19.
Statins are prescribed to the majority of seniors to “protect them from cardiovascular disease” but they actually do the opposite, increasing death rates by all other causes.
Statins also reduce production of Cholesterol Sulfate, and I have another article coming up on this important ingredient for healthy blood flow.
Statins also reduce production of CoQ10 (Co-Enzyme Q10) which is essential for our mitochondria, the energy-packs in each of our cells, especially our heart cells, and we need a strong and healthy heart to deal with any virus.
Statins cause muscle breakdown, sometimes so severe that the kidneys fail as they cannot deal with the waste from the muscle breakdown, resulting in death.
Statins also affect many more of the 48,000 different things that the liver normally manufactures for a healthy body.

Do not take ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) Inhibitors or ARB (Angiotensin Receptor Blocker) which are very common blood pressure drugs, even though the JAMA Network advises not to stop these drugs.
These drugs have shown in rodent studies to upregulate ACE2 expression hence may affect the severity of Coronavirus infections, because Coronaviruses now have a much more receptive entry point.
ACE Inhibitors have a common side-effect, much more common than the drug companies admit: A persistent, dry, unproductive cough. Is it a coincidence that a side-effect of COVID-19 is also: A persistent, dry, unproductive cough?. Read more about why COVID-19 affects seniors, especially those on medications:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/want-to-defeat-coronavirus-address-diabetes-and-hypertension
Note that ibuprofen (Advil) also acts as an ACE Inhibitor.

Natural prevention for Coronavirus

Several years ago, the famous Andrew Saul (the Vitamin Doctor) said “one day, vitamins would be used before drugs when it comes to sickness” and in the current pandemic it is being proven every day, as more and more people die from prescription drugs, and more and more are saved by healthy doses of Vitamins and other natural methods.
All viruses have weaknesses that can be exploited in simple remedies, including some that have been used for hundreds or thousands of years.

Ultraviolet Light

UV light is now recommended by doctors to treat patients indoors.
It is well-known that viruses are killed almost instantly by UV light.
But why invest in UV light equipment when we only have to step outside and get some sunshine that gives us free UV light and fresh air?
No wonder nearly half of all Coronavirus deaths are in Nursing Homes, where patients are locked in their rooms and never see natural light or receive fresh air?
Florence Nightingale was a pioneer in reforming hospitals by opening windows for natural light and fresh air, saving countless lives from effects of war injuries, but modern hospitals forget these basic rules, and Governments continue to ban people from public beaches, when this is the best place for them!

Sodium Bicarbonate

Viruses generally thrive in an acidic environment (low pH) but die in an alkaline environment (high pH).
Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) is not only safer than yeast as a raising agent in baking products, it is the best and fastest way to increase pH (alkalinity) when taken internally, and/or used on the skin.
Dissolve completely half a teaspoon in half a glass of water and drink every 2 hours, or as directed by a physician.
Do not take more than 7 times in 24 hours, 3 times for those over 60.
Add a cup or more to a bath and soak. For skin wounds, mix a little water into Bicarb powder to make a paste and apply to the affected area. To treat Coronavirus (or Cancer or other serious disease) aim for a urine pH level of 8.0 for 10 days, take a week off then repeat for another 7 to 10 days. Repeat the cycle as long as required.

Vitamin D3

A new study found that people with low levels of Vitamin D3 were much more likely to suffer serious symptoms or death from Coronavirus. Of course, I have been advising the benefits of D3 for 10 years because the scientific evidence is indisputable. Read more on these studies:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/vitamin-d-cuts-sars-cov-2-infection-rate-by-half

https://www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/the-most-important-paper-dr-mercola-has-ever-written

Vitamin D3 stimulates “innate immunity” to viruses and bacteria, at the same time moderating auto-immune conditions.
Importantly, Vitamin D3 can regulate immune responses and cytokine production to prevent COVID-19 from creating a “cytokine storm” (the main problem with Sepsis) that can destroy the body’s organs, leading to death.

Typical doses available in retail stores are about 1,000 IU and this is enough to stop rickets, but nowhere near enough to build immunity. I have taken 5,000 IU daily for 10 years and have never had a cold or flu in that time. More recently I have taken 10,000 IU 3 days a week. I also get as much sunshine as I can get (without turning pink) in the middle of the day from a clear blue sky to increase D3 and also reap the many other benefits of sunshine such as Cholesterol Sulfate. This is the complete opposite of advice given by the Cancer authorities who say that the sun is our enemy and we must avoid sun, especially in the middle of the day. Why is it then that more office workers die from melanoma than construction workers?
Be wary of lies about Vitamins from the big drug companies who are desperate to sabotage sales of vitamins that are eroding their expensive and dangerous drugs. Read about the lies CNN News tell about life-saving Vitamin D:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/cnn-spreads-deadly-lies-about-vitamin-d-for-covid-19
Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin (actually not a true vitamin, but a Steroid Hormone) so we do not need to take it every day, but should be taken with a meal containing some healthy fat (Coconut oil, Avocado, Olive Oil, etc). Some doctors give Vitamin D3 by IV as a monthly dose of 40,000 IU to 100,000 IU.

D3 Blood Tests:  Doctors say healthy D3 levels mean over 75 nmol/L (30 ng/ml). This level was only 60 nmol/L recently but doctors finally realised that this was still way too low. If D3 test results come in at over this threshold, the doctor will say you are fine.
However, true experts in this field say that truly optimum for a normal healthy person for immunity to disease, is between 125 and 175 nmol/L (50 – 70 ng/ml) and these levels are almost impossible to obtain unless we live outdoors or supplement.
For those recovering from cancer or other serious disease, optimum should be 175 to 250 nmol/L (70 – 100 ng/ml).
NOTE: Because Vitamin D3 increases Calcium absorption, we should ALWAYS take Vitamin K2 MK7 that helps place Calcium into the bones and teeth where it belongs, and keep it out of the blood where it can form clots. I recommend at least 200mcg of and up to 300mcg Vitamin K2 MK7 in conjunction with 5000 IU Vitamin D3. Note that the MK7 version of Vitamin K2 is twice as beneficial as other versions, and taking high doses over 300mcg daily does no harm, but offers no extra benefits.

As we age, our ability to absorb Vitamin D3 decreases, which is partly why more seniors have worse outcomes with Coronavirus. Generally, over 50’s need 5,000 IU daily, and over 80’s need 8,000 IU daily. Always ask for a D3 test with an annual blood test to ensure your sunshine and/or supplementation is sufficient.
Read more about Vitamin D3 in my article:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/vitamin-d3
Also read how Vitamin D3 reduces severity and risk of death from Coronavirus:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/vitamin-d-level-is-directly-correlated-to-covid-19-outcome

African Americans are 3 to 6 times more liable to suffer COVID-19 infections AND to dying from those infections, and also Hispanics to a lesser extent. Doctors look at socio-enomic, housing, crime rates, existing obesity, other health issues  and other factors, but overlook the real reason: Low Vitamin D3 because they do NOT absorb enough D3 from sunlight and should ALWAYS supplement with Vitamin D3.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A increases immunity, and works well in conjunction with Vitamin D3. Both can be toxic when taken at very high doses, but when taken together, the toxic level is doubled, which really means the toxic level of one really means a deficiency of the other.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C powder is a cheap and effective way of improving immunity, also Liposomal Vitamin C that the body retains better. The Orthomolecular Medicine News Service says “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.
Vitamin C is antiviral, antitoxin, antihistamine, anti-inflammatory, works as an antibiotic, even an antidepressant!
High doses of vitamin C, typically over 9,000 mg daily, can upset the stomach, but hospitals should be using the safe high doses given by IV (direct into the blood), often doses from 20,000 mg to 50,000 mg or more, with proven success rates for serious Coronavirus cases.

Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate

Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate Spray is a topical spray, used on the skin where it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
Also Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate Flakes can be used to soak in a bath.
This by-passes the digestive system, which can be a problem for high doses of magnesium taken orally that may cause loose bowel motions.
There are many different magnesium salts available, but Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate appears to work best for immunity to viral infections, as well as the traditional Magnesium benefits to Heart, Bones and over 280 biochemical reactions in the body. Most magnesium supplements will help, aim for 400mg per day, or use a cup of Epsom Salts in a bath for direct absorption through the skin.

Note that Vitamin C, Vitamin D3 and Magnesium work in a synergistic manner, that is, when combined, work better than each one work alone.

Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)

Vitamin B Complex contains Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, B12 which are all important for health.

Zinc

Zinc is essential for the immune system. A 30-mg dosage of zinc in one study showed a significant increase in levels of infection-fighting T cells.
Zinc is used up faster when we have an illness, so supplementation is essential. See more under the Diet heading.
Read more about zinc:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/how-to-improve-zinc-uptake-to-boost-immune-health

Selenium

Selenium is an antioxidant that lowers oxidative stress in the body, reducing inflammation and improving immunity to viruses, bacteria and parasites.
At the same time, Selenium protects against heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and other “Modern” diseases.

Glutathione

Glutathione is the body’s “Master Antioxidant” but is used up by stress and bad diets.
Glutathione is also clobbered by Paracetamol (Panadol), also called Acetaminophen or Tylenol in the USA despite being advertised as “Safe and Effective”, and impacts liver health and substantially reduces immunity. The worst side-effect is reducing body temperature, when the best way of killing off any virus is to raise body temperature (or allow a natural fever when fighting infection).
Glutathione supplements are not well absorbed, as much is lost in the digestive process, so the above supplement that is dissolved in the mouth gets straight into the blood through the mucous lining of the mouth, bypassing the digestive system. It is also the “reduced” form that is already in the beneficial form and does not have to be converted, unlike other non-reduced forms.
An alternative is precursors (building blocks) of Glutathione:
NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine)
Glycine
Glutamine
These 3 will increase Glutathione levels naturally.
NAC is used in hospitals as a first-line treatment for Paracetamol overdose.

Iodine

Iodine has been used for centuries to treat infections and disease.
It is still one of the very few weapons to destroy viruses as well as bacteria, molds, yeasts, protozoa and more.
Iodine increases immunity, but in modern times, people are becoming more deficient in Iodine, because:

  • Chlorine in drinking water displaces iodine in the thyroid, causing thyroid problems
  • People are reducing salt intake, so getting less iodine

Dr. Brownstein from Detroit tested 7,000 patients and found 97% were deficient in Iodine.
Few researchers test for Iodine. If they did and treated those deficient with supplemental Iodine, there would be far fewer diseases in the world, and far fewer outbreaks of mutated viruses.

Lysine

Lysine is a natural amino acid, and studies have demonstrated that Lysine can reduce infection rates of the varicella zoster virus (VZV) Chicken Pox virus, so I recommend everyone take Lysine supplements. Only 1/4 teaspoon daily is cheap insurance for viral infections. Also helps prevent Shingles which is becoming an epidemic because of effects of the Varicella vaccine that reduces immunity to Shingles, which has now reached epidemic proportions, but only in those who have had the Chicken Pox vaccine.

Quercetin

Quercetin has long been a valuable ingredient found in many foods such as Red Onions, Elderberries, Kale, Apples, Spinach, Red Grapes, Raw Black Plums and many more.
Already famous for health in Cancer, Cardiovascular, Kidney and other diseases, studies are now under way for the effect on Coronavirus which is already showing promising results.
See the study on Quercetin for Coronavirus:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/breaking-news-can-quercetin-help-us-to-avoid-the-threat-of-coronavirus-infection

Quercetin also helps the body cells take in zinc. Read more:

Melatonin

Melatonin is a hormone synthesized in the pineal gland and many other organs, best known as a natural sleep regulator, but has many other benefits.
Melatonin is a powerful antioxidant with the rare ability to enter the mitochondria, where it helps prevent mitochondrial impairment, energy failure and apoptosis of mitochondria damaged by oxidation.
Also helps recharge glutathione, vital for COVID-19 resistance, and important in cancer prevention, autoimmune diseases, brain, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal health, and boosts immune function.
The Cleveland Clinic found patients who used supplemental melatonin had a 28% lower risk of testing positive for COVID-19. African Americans using melatonin were 52% less likely to test positive for the virus.
Melatonin reduces inflammation, oxidation, cytokine storms, acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome.
Patients given 36 mg to 72 mg of intravenous melatonin per day improved, especially in combination with vitamin C and vitamin D. Melatonin improves vitamin D signaling, working synergistically to enhance mitochondrial function

Gut

The gut is responsible for 80% of our immune system, so we must look after our 100 trillion friendly microbes, usually totaling about 2 kg of our body weight.
Of course, taking antibiotics destroys a large proportion of the friendly bacteria, compromising our immune system.
Antibiotics also have no effect on viruses, so antibiotics will only have a negative effect on any virus condition and increase the risk of microbes becoming resistant to antibiotics.
We must also avoid a “leaky gut” where imperfections in the gut lining allow raw food to directly enter the bloodstream, causing allergies.
Eating fermented foods can significantly lower risk of death from Coronavirys. Read more:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/fermented-foods-may-lower-your-risk-of-covid-19-death

Seaweed

Seaweed substantially out-performs Remdesivir which is an antiviral drug used in most Hospitals to treat Coronavirus. This could explain why Japan has had far fewer cases of Coronavirus than other countries. Read more about Seaweed:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/seaweed-for-sars-cov-2/

Hydrogen

Hydrogen gas is a treatment that improves lung function, but not many hospitals have it available or use it.
Because hydrogen is the smallest atom (1 proton, 1 electron) it can go everywhere in the body, nothing can stop it. Hydrogen can cross cell membranes and the blood-brain barrier. It can protect DNA and mitochondria from damage due to free radicals (unstable molecules that tear other molecules apart to gain stability). Read more about Hydrogen and it’s effect on Coronavirus:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/how-molecular-hydrogen-can-help-against-covid-19

Hydrogen supplements are available. Drop a tablet into a glass of water and drink.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen Peroxide has been used for decades to fight viruses. In fact, the body normally makes hydrogen peroxide, but because this is a natural product, the Drug companies are not interested because they cannot patent it or make money from it. Read more in this article:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/censored-by-the-media-this-at-home-remedy-knocks-out-viruses-safely-and-effectively

Diet

Healthy foods build our immune system. Bad foods bring it down.
Processed foods, sugar, bad fats (margarine, canola oil) and anything with unpronounceable ingredients or numbers on the ingredient list.
Always eat fresh, colorful fruits and vegetables. Buy organic and grass-fed meat when you can, use plant-based foods more than animal products.
Some immune-boosting foods include garlic, onion, leek, ginger, broccoli sprouts, reishi and shiitake mushrooms, green tea, cinnamon, clove, oregano, thyme, bitter melon, stevia.
Citrus, berries of all kinds, broccoli, peppers all have Vitamin C.
Walnuts, almonds and other nuts, seeds, leafy green vegetables, avocados all have Vitamin E.
Walnuts in particular can help maintain the length of telomeres, which maintains health and immunity in seniors. Read more about walnuts: www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/eating-walnuts-preserves-youthful-telomere-strands
Seafoods, cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds, lentils, chickpeas, eggs, grass-fed beef, Cacao or Cocoa, yogurt, kefir, dark chocolate, dairy (especially ricotta cheese), mushrooms, avocados, chicken are some of the best sources of Zinc which is essential for over 300 enzyme reactions in the body. Zinc is used up at a much higher rate if we have an illness, so supplementation should be considered if sick or if we cannot get enough through our diet.
Fish, flaxseed, walnuts have high levels of Omega 3.
Fermented foods, yogurt, kefir are high in Probiotics.

Mitochondrial Function

Dysfunction of our mitochondria, the tiny energy packs inside every cell in the body, is always a problem for our general health and immune function.
Supplements to support mitochondrial function include:

Herbs

Herbs are best known for increasing flavour in cooking, but many herbs have natural ability to fight viruses, bacteria and fungi.
Echinacea has antiviral properties, containing echinacein that inhibits bacteria and viruses from penetrating healthy cells.
Elderberry contains anthocyanidins with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immunostimulant properties.
Andrographis has antiviral, antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Garlic, especially raw garlic, but also as an Odorless Supplement, is well-known for antiviral properties, as well as being used for tuberculosis, pneumonia, thrush, herpes, eye infections, ear infections, cancer, hypertension, cardiovascular health and even hair loss.
Astragalus Extract, has powerful antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, used to boost the immune system, for HSV (herpes simplex virus), coxsackie B virus, wound care, and is an adaptogen for lowering cortisol.
Olive Leaf Extract has antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anti-cancer properties due to the polyphenol ingredient oleuropein, a potent antioxidant that helps in blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.
Pau D’Arco is used for arthritis, pain, inflammation, parasites, prostate health, fever, dysentery, boils, ulcers and cancers.

Others are Goldenseal, Japanese honeysuckle, Stinging Nettle.

Exercise

If we are confined due to isolation or quarantine directives, staying in bed or watching TV all day is bad for our brains as well as our health and immunity. If we have a back yard, balcony or other ways to get fresh air and sunshine, get outside and get some exercise.
For more reading on exercise benefits:

Read how staying at home can lower Vitamin D levels and increase risk of infection and death from Coronavirus:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/are-stay-at-home-orders-decimating-vitamin-d-levels

Get Outside

Confining ourselves indoors is detrimental to our immune system. Getting outdoors as much as possible is one way to maintain or improve our immune system. This is proven by Nursing Home procedures that lock people in their rooms, and cruise liners that confine people to their cabins, both situations causing major outbreaks and deaths from the virus. Read more here about the report from two doctors that was banned on YouTube:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/two-california-doctors-issue-major-warning-about-shelter-in-place-orders

What NOT to do

Do not take NSAIDS (Ibuprofen, Aspirin) or other anti-inflammatory drugs that impact immunity, as the body’s normal response to a pathogen is to increase fever and inflammation.
Normal body temperatures are 36 to 37 degrees C, and normally varies. Body temperature will usually be at its lowest just before dawn and highest in the afternoon, and will be higher after exercise. If fever goes over 40 degrees C (104 degrees Fahrenheit) in a child or adult, it can become dangerous, and may cause seizures at 106 degrees F, and potentially deadly at 108 degrees F. It can be reduced naturally by sitting in a bath of cool to lukewarm water and sponging the water over the body, and no side-effects! Note that infants have much less tolerance to fevers. See a doctor immediately.
Do NOT get a flu shot. The diet and supplements above will help with Coronavirus, the Flu, Colds and almost everything else. Read moere uder the Flu Shot heading below.

Do not touch your face, especially near eyes, nose, mouth and even ears. The average person touches their face 23 times every hour. Medical masks can help in stopping touching of mouth and nose. If no masks are available, a clean super-size handkerchief will help. Looking like a cowboy should not bother anyone unless you are walking into a bank…

Do NOT eat Sugar because, blood lab tests show a lowered immune system function within 30 minutes of eating sugar, causing a 50% reduction in the ability for white blood cells to kill pathogens!
Read more about how sugar and insulin resistance causes Coronavirus deaths:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/the-real-pandemic-is-insulin-resistance

Flu Shot

Governments keep telling us to get an influenza vaccination. They claim it will reduce risk of the flu (doubtful) and free up hospital beds for Coronavirus patients.
In fact, the flu shot INCREASES risk of acquiring not only Coronavirus, but almost all other viruses, especially those related to respiratory infections.

  • A January 2020 US Pentagon study (Wolff 2020) found that the flu shot INCREASES the risks from coronavirus by 36%. “Receiving influenza vaccination may increase the risk of other respiratory viruses, a phenomenon known as “virus interference… ’vaccine derived’ virus interference was significantly associated with coronavirus…”
  • 2018 CDC study (Rikin et al 2018) found that flu shots increase the risk of non-flu acute respiratory illnesses (ARIs), including coronavirus, in children
  • A 2011 Australian study (Kelly et al 2011) found that flu shots doubled the risk for non-flu viral lung infections
  • 2012 Hong Kong study (Cowling et al 2012) found that flu shots increase the risk for non-flu respiratory infections by 4.4 times
  • 2017 study (Mawson et al 2017) found vaccinated children were 5.9 times more likely to suffer pneumonia than their unvaccinated peers
  • A study on the Coronavirus deaths in Italy show a 36% INCREASE in Coronavirus infections in those who have had the Flu shot. The Flu shot is known to be only slightly effective in preventing 2 or 3 strains of the Flu, but increases risk of contracting hundreds of other strains and probably almost all other viruses. Read more on this study:
    www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/prestigious-vaccine-journal-flu-vaccine-increases-coronavirus-infection-risk-36
  • Viral Shedding is common after receiving a flu shot. Simply by breathing, without coughing or sneezing, a flu-vaccinated person with no symptoms can spread the virus and infect others nearby. Read more:
    www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/flu-vaccination-associated-with-increased-viral-shedding

 

Heat

I have already discussed the benefit of having a fever, but there are easy ways to create a fever if the body is not automatically doing it.

  1. Exercise heavily enough to sweat
  2. Use an infra-red Sauna. Infra-red heat penetrates deep into the body, increasing the white blood cells and immunity

Hand Sanitisers

I rarely use hand sanitisers, only when there is no opportunity to wash hands, but I regularly wash hands because I work hard and get dirty a lot! Grime on hands can hide many unknown bacteria and viruses, so washing hands regularly is important, but not too much, as the natural protective oil (sebum) in skin is depleted, allowing pathogens to enter the blood directly through the skin. Hospitals have hand sanitisers at the entrance, but it is best to use these on the way out to protect against MRSA and other infections that we pick up in hospitals because of the over-use of antibiotics and sterilising agents. When we get home, forget the Sanitisers and wash hands in soap and hot water.

Commercial hand sanitisers have many problems:

  • They almost always have toxic ingredients such as Tricoslan that can cause cancer, hormonal imbalance and can increase absorption of BPA (Bisphenol A) that introduce excess synthetic estrogens
  • Most contain Phthalates and Parabens that damage the endocrine system, causing early onset puberty, obesity and cancer
  • They are generally only 99.7% effective, but washing hands in soap and water is 99.2% effective anyway
  • According to a 2013 FDA study, chemical-based anti-bacterial hand soaps/sanitisers have never been proven to be any more effective than washing with natural hand soap. The best soap is a non-toxic hand soap with natural ingredients like Eucalyptus Oil Soap
  • Soap effectively kills COVID-19 and most other viruses by dissolving the fatty membrane that holds the virus together, causing it to fall apart and is washed off under running water
  • We need good bacteria for a strong immune system, and grabbing a shopping trolley or doing some gardening is a good way to build the immune system
  • Sterile hands are a recipe for infection as we need the good bacteria to help defeat the bad bugs
  • Sanitisers are more effective against bacteria and may have limited effect against viruses
  • Intended to ward off bacterial infection, these products have backfired. Prolific use of sanitisers promotes bacteria becoming resistant such as MRSA
  • Sanitisers are associated with allergy development in young children
  • Sanitiser chemicals leach into the environment, ending up in our tap water, rivers, lakes and oceans

washing handsIf you still want to use a sanitiser, here is just one of the many recipes available that has no toxic ingredients:
Homemade Hand Sanitiser

Instructions:

  1. Add 20 drops of tea tree oil, 5 drops of lavender oil, 5 drops of lemon oil, and 5 drops of sweet orange oil to the glass bottle.
  2. Gently swirl the oils together. Slowly pour witch hazel into the spray bottle until it is about 2/3 of the way full.
  3. Add aloe vera until the bottle is full. If desired, add a few drops of vitamin E oil; it extends the shelf life and adds antioxidants.
  4. Put the lid on the bottle and shake it to mix the ingredients. Label the bottle and store it in a cool, dry place for up to two months.
  5. Use it before touching surfaces or when it is not possible to wash hands with soap and water.

Sanitisers can be valuable only if there is no soap and water available.

Face Masks

Face masks may help reduce transmission of disease in crowded areas, but given social distancing, there should be no need. One advantage of the masks is that they help prevent a person touching their mouth or nose. One study found that people on average touch their face 38 times per hour without being aware. However, the mask can trap water droplets allowing a build-up of the virus, so then touching the mask, then touching another object can trigger the disease in another person touching that object. Wearing a mask for long periods can cause itching and constant touching to re-position the mask or allow fresh air to enter from the side, and these actions can INCREASE virus transmission.
Caronavirus attaches to minute particles of water suspended in air. Any mask that allows movement of air, so we can breathe, also allows us to breathe in the virus.
The WHO finally admits that there is no hard evidence that a mask can help. Read more:

Home made masks are easy to make and work nearly as well as commercial masks. More mask info:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/benefits-of-wearing-masks-for-protection-from-infection
N95 Respirators, Regular Masks or Cloth Masks?
N95 masks are by far the most expensive and the best, able to filter particles as small as 300 nm, but are a disposable item and very uncomfortable to wear for extended periods. The Coronaviruses are typically about 100 nm in size, so N95 masks are not efficient in trapping viruses. Also the N95 masks have to be fitted to each individual person to get a good seal, and any facial hair (beard) prevents a good seal, so there is no point in a bearded person using an N95 mask.
Regular masks are less expensive, but will not trap a Coronavirus, and are a throw-away item so end up costing a lot to continually replace them. They may trap some significant water droplets that may contain viruses.
Cloth masks (see above how to make your own) are least efficient at trapping water droplets or viruses, but are less uncomfortable to wear, are washable and re-usable, allow colours to match clothing for the fashion-conscious, and are cheap to buy if you do not want to make one.

Do Not Panic

Fear and Panic lowers our immunity and drives us to make irrational decisions.

Fear creates high levels of Cortisol and Adrenaline, which enables us to perform in “fight or flight” situations. This is a good thing if we are faced with immediate danger, but a bad thing if the levels do not return to normal in a few hours because our immune system will be compromised  with consistently high levels.
For any healthy person, Coronavirus will be no worse than the common cold.
Good nutrition, clean air, clean water and some supplements above will either prevent infection or substantially alleviate symptoms. The only people who may die from Coronavirus are those with a compromised immune system, and if Coronavirus did not exist, the they would probably die from the flu, cancer, Alzheimer’s, vaccinations, cardiovascular events, or even the original Coronavirus or Rhinovirus (common cold) etc.

Danger of Lockdowns

Given that 99% of deaths are caused more from existing medical conditions and prescription drugs and false death records, and the fact that the seasonal flu kills as many or more, and that at least 10 times that many deaths are caused by medical mistakes, infections caught in hospitals, and almost all people who died from Coronavirus would have died anyway, is it wise to destroy the world’s economy and cause millions of people to lose jobs and possibly homes, more deaths from suicide, mental problems, marriage breakups and more; what is the real cost?

www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/lockdown-lunacy-2-0-second-wave-not-even-close
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/systems-biologist-speaks-out-about-covid-19-response

After five months of claiming the Coronavirus could spread via “asymptomatic carriers,” necessitating the lockdowns, mask policies, social distancing and mandatory vaccines, the WHO declared on 8th June “Spread of COVID-19 through asymptomatic carriers is very rare”.
This means that apart from known cases that should be quarantined, everyone else should go back to normal – no lockdowns, no masks, no social distancing and no vaccinations!
The next day, I believe due to pressure from the big drug companies who fear that this would damage sales of their yet undeveloped vaccines, the WHO backtracked on this statement and changed the wording from “very rare” to “unknown”. All of the science studies relating to these decisions has not been released.  Read the story here:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/world-health-organization-scrambling-to-save-credibility-recants-admission-that-asymptomatic-spread-of-covid-19-is-very-rare
Sweden decided to avoid the financial ruin of lockdowns and closing businesses and as of 2nd October, now have zero deaths and few infections, as most of the population has now reached “herd immunity”, while neighboring countries have financial ruin, thousands dying, and hospitals overwhelmed.

Take a free 2-minute quiz to check your risk for COVID-19:

Other Infections

There are many conditions that are far worse than Coronavirus. 5 times more people die from the Flu than Coronavirus, but we have never had lockdowns for the Flu except some Nursing Homes, where all patients, staff and visitors have had compulsory Flu vaccinations, proving that the vaccinations do not work, because usually they all get the Flu anyway.

Hospitals all over the world are concerned with Candida Auris (C. Auris), a fungal yeast infection that is spreading and killing many people. Major anti-fungal medications do not work, and nearly half of all who contract it die within 3 months. The best place to acquire Candida Auris is in a hospital, especially hospitals that are over-run with COVID-19 patients, and having infections of both would place one in extreme danger of death, especially when the medical staff appear concentrated only on COVID-19!
First found in Tokyo in 2009, it has spread across Asia and Europe, and to the USA in 2016.
For general Candida Albicans infections, read my Candida Article.
Solutions for Candida Albicans may not work for Candida Auris, but will probably do no harm, and may help.
Of course, increasing immunity using natural methods for COVID-19 above should help. As the death rate for Candida auris is about 50% it pays to have a good immune system to have the best chance to be in the other 50%.

Another Swine Flu Virus
Yet another swine flu virus found in Chinese pigs, and also in people handling the pigs, has the potential to become another pandemic. The video below details a 60-minutes report regarding what happened when 46 million Americans were vaccinated with the Swine Flu vaccination in 1976:

Humour
We have to keep laughing to keep our sanity…
– They said a mask and gloves were enough to go to the supermarket. Not true, everyone else had clothes on.
– Remember: No matter how much you eat in a lockdown, your earrings will still fit.
– The buttons on my jeans are social distancing from one another.
– I used to say “I would’t touch him with a six-foot pole”. Now it is Government policy.
– I’m going to stay up on New Year’s Eve. Partly to see the New Year in, but mainly to make sure the old year leaves.
– The Supermarket wanted me to wait on a big X – but I’ve seen too many Road Runner cartoons to fall for that one.
