Health Experts Admit Outdoor Mask Wearing Is Ridiculous

Smart people have always known masks don't do much. And outside, they don't do anything.

From an article at NOQ, at a glance:

  • According to an expert on viral transmission mechanics, brief outdoor encounters present a “very low risk” for transmission of COVID-19. Viral particles quickly disperse in outdoor air, so the risk of inhaling aerosolized virus from passersby is negligible
  • Using mathematical models, Italian researchers have calculated the amount of time it would take for you to contract the SARS-CoV-2 virus outdoors in Milan. If 10% of the population were infected, you would require 31.5 days of continuous outdoor exposure to inhale a dose of virus sufficient to transmit infection
  • Other research has shown your odds of transmitting COVID-19 are 18.7 times greater indoors than in an open-air environment
  • Several investigations looking at SARS-CoV-2 RNA concentrations in air have come up empty. No detectable RNA was found in air samplings from various locations in Wuhan, China, Venice in northern Italy, or Lecce in southern Italy, during the pandemic
  • Germany’s first registry for side effects of mask wearing on children has identified 24 physical, psychological and behavioral health issues, including irritability (60%), headache (53%), difficulty concentrating (50%), reduced happiness (49%), reluctance to go to school/kindergarten (44%), malaise (42%), impaired learning (38%) and drowsiness or fatigue (37%)

Do you remember the time of Spain mandating use of face masks while swimming in the ocean? They were actually arresting and quarantining people who dared question the narrative regarding mask wearing.

In an April 22, 2021, article in The New York Times, Tara Parker-Pope cited several doctors and virologists who advise against universal mask wearing outdoors.

According to Linsey Marr, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech and an expert on viral transmission mechanics, who notes that brief outdoor encounters, such as walking past someone on a sidewalk or hiking trail, present a “very low risk” for transmission.

“Viral particles quickly disperse in outdoor air, and the risk of inhaling aerosolized virus from a jogger or passers-by is negligible,” Marr told Parker-Pope.2 “Even if a person coughs or sneezes outside as you walk by, the odds of you getting a large enough dose of virus to become infected remain low.”

Similarly, Dr. Muge Cevic, a clinical lecturer of infectious disease and medical virology at the University of St. Andrews School of Medicine in Scotland, is quoted saying:3

“I think it’s a bit too much to ask people to put the mask on when they go out for a walk or jogging or cycling. We’re in a different stage of the pandemic. I think outdoor masks should not have been mandated at all. It’s not where the infection and transmission occurs.”

There are other examples in the article. But the reality is....

Vaccinated or Not, Masks Don’t Work

But in spite of that

The CDC Grants Special Permission to Fully Vaccinated

Despite science being rather clear on these points, at the end of April 2021, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention eased its outdoor mask guidelines for vaccinated-only.

If you’ve gotten all of the required doses of the COVID-19 “vaccine,” you no longer need to wear a mask outdoors when in small groups or when exercising. Masks are still recommended when in crowded outdoor venues, though, such as sports stadiums. According to another New York Times article:6

“President Biden hailed it as a landmark moment in the pandemic, wearing a mask as he approached the lectern on a warm spring day on the White House grounds — and pointedly keeping it off as he walked back into the White House when he was done. ‘Go get the shot. It’s never been easier,’ Mr. Biden said. ‘And once you’re fully vaccinated, you can go without a mask when you’re outside and away from big crowds.'”

Researchers Set the Record Straight

Breaking with The New York Times’ typical propaganda, Parker-Pope actually goes on to cite research7 published in February 2021 in the Environmental Research journal:

“To understand just how low the risk of outdoor transmission is, researchers in Italy used mathematical models to calculate the amount of time it would take for a person to become infected outdoors in Milan.

They imagined a grim scenario in which 10% of the population was infected with the coronavirus. Their calculations showed that if a person avoided crowds, it would take, on average, 31.5 days of continuous outdoor exposure to inhale a dose of virus sufficient to transmit infection.

‘The results are that this risk is negligible in outdoor air if crowds and direct contact among people are avoided,’ said Daniele Contini, senior author of the study and an aerosol scientist at the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate in Lecce, Italy.

Even as more-infectious virus variants circulate, the physics of viral transmission outdoors haven’t changed, and the risk of getting infected outdoors is still low, say virus experts.”

As Many People Have Died From The Covid 19 Vaccines As From All Vaccines In The Last 20 Years Combined

I firmly believe the numbers have reached the point where we now have as many people who have died from the vaccines as have died from covid.

That is my personal opinion. But it's not without merit. I don't believe it is.

Dr. McCollough is a world-renowned cardiologist and virologist. He has well over 45 peer-reviewed papers to his name, and is one of the most widely respected specialists in the world.

At least, he was one of the most respected specialists in medicine until he started speaking out against the vaccines. But money and power take a lot of low blows at people.

Check out THIS VIDEO from Dr. McCollough.


The Epoch Times summarized Dr. McCullough’s answer this way:

Though it may seem counterintuitive, Dr. McCullough said that sudden deaths that happen during sleep are biochemically similar to the sudden deaths during or just after vigorous exercise.
The reason people die seemingly inexplicably in their sleep, Dr. McCullough explained, is sometimes because of a surge in catecholamines during the end of the sleep cycle. This natural biochemical change is the body’s signal to wake up.
These catecholamines can increase our heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate, among other things. A surge in catecholamines, whether it happens during sleep or during exercise, can stress the heart and cause it to beat arrhythmically, and if a young person’s heart has been damaged by an infection, vaccination, or for any other reason, the surge of catecholamines can be lethal. This is the reason, McCullough said, that people seem to die in their sleep. They’re really dying just before dawn.

Aloe Vera – Effects on Blood Glucose and Benefits

Aloe Vera for blood sugar management?

According to an article in Principia Scientifica, there are a number of studies that show Aloe Vera is good for managing blood glucose levels.

From the article:

  • In a 1999 study, researchers indicated that oral aloe vera “might be a useful adjunct for lowering blood glucose in diabetic patients.” Since then, experts have continued to explore aloe vera’s use in managing blood glucose and diabetes. Thus far, some of their findings include the following:
  • In a study involving 90 individuals with non-insulin-dependent diabetes, the participants were given either no treatment (controls), 100 mg of aloe vera gel powder, or 200 mg of the powder daily for three months. The authors noted a significant drop in fasting blood glucose levels and post-prandial glucose levels in the groups that received aloe vera but not in the controls. The participants in the aloe vera groups also saw a significant reduction in total cholesterol, triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and very low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and a significant increase in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. Blood pressure declined significantly in the aloe vera groups but only slightly in the controls.
  • In a 2013 animal study, aloe vera extract was administered to diabetic rats. The extract significantly reduced glucose levels while also significantly increasing serum insulin levels.
  • In a systemic review and meta-analysis that involved eight trials (470 patients) with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, the researchers found that the use of aloe vera significantly improved fasting plasma glucose levels in people with prediabetes. For those with Type 2 diabetes, aloe vera may improve glycemic control and significantly improve hemoglobin A1c levels.
  • A 2022 study looked at the impact of aloe vera on dyslipidemia (elevated triglycerides, decreased high-density lipoprotein [good] cholesterol, elevated small dense low-density lipoprotein [bad] cholesterol) in individuals with Type 2 diabetes. The authors noted that oral aloe vera may help improve blood glucose stability and the metabolism of lipids.

Aloe Vera is a "wonder drug" in many respects besides the benefits for managing blood sugar.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are other benefits to drinking aloe vera juice:

  • it can clear acne;
  • it can keep you  regular (relieve constipation);
  • it can reduce heartburn;
  • it is good for your eyes;
  • it is a good boost for vitamin C.

If you are concerned about managing your blood glucose levels, there are supplements on the market that help with that.

Glucoberry and Gluconate are two products on the market that are specifically designed to lower your blood glucose levels. Check them out if you're having issues in that department.

Principia Scientifica is an interesting site with some good finds. It generally passes Cogny's "smell test." Read more here: https://thecognitiveman.com/health/aloe-vera-effects-on-blood-glucose-and-benefits/

NAD supplements can help restore age-related muscle loss
HEALTH WELLNESS

NAD Helps Restore Age-Related Muscle Loss

NAD+ can help restore muscle loss due to aging

We all know we need to exercise. But we don't always do what we need to do,

The problem is that if you don't, you have an increased risk of developing a debilitating condition called sarcopenia. That is muscle loss that comes with age.

Exercise can help. But NAD supplements can also help maintain muscle mass and function.

Here's the deal.

  • Your cells tend to have a breakdown in the reproductive process as you age (your mitochondria tend to malfunction. Heard of those?)
  • NAD+ is a naturally-occurring substance in your body that is produced, consumed and rebuilt in your cells.
  • studies have shown that NAD+ boosting molecules such as NR ("nicotinamide riboside"), NMN ("nicotinamide mononucleotide"), vitamin B3 and niacin all help your body do this better.

According to Dr. Mercola, of all these supplements, "NMN appears to be the best, as it activates the NAD+ salvage pathway and is a direct precursor to NAD+."

Check out our other product reviews HERE

Is an NAD+ supplement the best way to boost your NAD+?

The short answer is NO. Although your cells need lots of NAD+, the problem is that the NAD molecule has to be built inside the cell. As it turns out, taking an NAD supplement is a very inefficient way of supplementing your NAD levels. Why is that?

The problem is an NAD supplement won't get into your cells directly.

You see, the NAD molecule doesn't "fit" through the openings in your cell walls. So if you take an NAD+ supplement, your body has to break it down into other things (like NMN) and then rebuild it inside the cell, from NMN to turn it back into NAD+. 

NAD cannot get into the cell. Your cell needs NMN that is turned into NAD inside the cell.

If you take an NAD supplement, it doesn't penetrate your cells where they can use it. Your body has to take that NAD and "break it down" into smaller parts that then (sort of) get back to your cells and then get turned back into NAD inside the cell.

So, you don't want an NAD+ supplement. What you really want is a NMN supplement.

NMN is a "precursor" to NAD+. That is, NMN is an essential component your body uses to make NAD inside your cells.

So the trick is to take an NMN supplement to allow your body to assemble the NAD inside your cells. It's the better supplement. It's the better way to supplement NAD.

The problem is that if you take a typical NMN, some of it gets broken down by your digestive tract. 

Although NMN is the better supplement, some of it doesn't make it past your stomach into your gut where your body can best absorb it.

But there is one manufacturer out there that has figured out a way around this problem.

The solution is "Liposomal NMN."

What is "Liposomal NMN?" It's actually a brand name for an NMN supplement that has been uniquely designed to deliver NMN in a way your body can absorb it.

NMN is a naturally occurring substance. And these guys have found a way to package the NMN in a "liposome."

A "liposome" small "casing" of sorts that protects the NMN from your digestive tract so your body can absorb all of it out of your digestive tract, after it passes the stomach and the stomach acids, so your body can absorb it.

I take Liposomal NMN, and I notice a difference.

I've been taking it for just a little while, now, but I'm already noticing a difference. 

I'm finding I have more energy and less "crashing" through the day.

This stuff seems to actually be helping in that area. I'm taking NMN along with resveratrol and the combination seems to be having some positive results for me. (You can see an article I wrote here that talks about resveratrol, quercetin and NMN and how the medical experts talk about how they work symbiotically.)

But doctor David Sinclair who pioneered the research in this stuff at Harvard, has done extensive work regarding this stuff. The benefits of NMN include:

  • feel younger and more energetic
  • maintain muscle mass as you age
  • protect brain health
  • helps with heart health and circulation
  • studies show it may help the body resist diseases like cancer

I'm not a doctor nor the son of a doctor. And you should always consult a medical professional about any supplements you plan on taking. I'm only relaying my personal experience here, as something you should research and follow your own conclusions with your doctor.

I believe Liposomal NMN is the best and most "bioavailable" NMN supplement on the market.

There are a number of NMN supplements out there. But the trick is not just "how many mg of NMN you're getting." It has to be "how many mg of NMN you actually ABSORB so your body can use it."

That's the difference. "Bioavailability" means "your body can actually USE the stuff." Other NMN supplements might give you more NMN, but without the liposomal coating, most of it gets broken down by your stomach acid.

Liposomal NMN is able to get past your stomach into your digestive tract where you can ABSORB it.

And that is the biggest benefit of THIS brand. It's the one that ends up giving you the best bang for the buck!

So, what does it cost?

 For what you actually get, it's pretty reasonable. A two month's supply is $69.95 USD. That's just a little more than a buck a day.

Of course, the more you buy at a time, the cheaper it is. A one year supply is $349.95 USD. That's about 95 cents a day to feel better, to maintain youth and vitality, to win the battle against aging.

You can check it out here, risk free. And with all products from this company, it comes with a 67-day money-back guarantee.

Best defense against spike protein and spike protein shedding
HEALTH WELLNESS

A Supplement To Minimize Spike Proteins And Effects Of Shedding

In another post I wrote about how to protect yourself from the spike protein, I wrote about a protocol that Dr Bryan Ardis had developed to prep your body if you were going to have to get the dreaded shot. That post generated a lot of attention.

But now that most have gotten it, there is another, more pressing need: for most now, the need is "how to protect yourself from spike proteins," whether from what you've had put into you or what you might pick up from others in the course of "shedding." (More on that in a little bit.)

Your approach (according to the experts) to how to prep, or fight, or take supplements seems to depend on where you are in the process of dealing with spike proteins.

Standard Disclaimer: I am not a doctor

I am neither a doctor nor the son of a doctor. I have medical professionals in the family and I have my share of experience with both typical western medicine and natural approaches to health and healing.


But I only do research and present my findings.


Always check with your health practitioner or the medical people in charge of your care before embarking on any kind of a medical program or treatment, or before using any supplement.


But look at my findings for information to consider with your medical professional. It's just there for you to consider. You should always make informed decisions.

Here are the different considerations.

According to the medical experts I have come to trust over the last few years (I'm not a medical professional; I just do a lot of research) there are several things to consider when dealing with this whole problem of the vaccines and the whole approach from the mainstream medical community.

If you're prepping ahead of getting one of the shots or boosters

If you're in the "pre" stage, then according to doctors like Dr. Bryan Ardis, you'll want to do a specific protocol of supplementation prior to getting the shot. It gives your body the best nutritional supplementation to help minimize the negative side-effects. 

In short, his protocol consists of supplements both before and after the shot of Selenium, Magnesium and rather large doses of Vitamin C. You can read more about that protocol HERE

If you've already had Covid or already had the shots or boosters and want to protect yourself from spike proteins

There are a group of doctors who historically seem to have had the best understanding of where all this vaccination program was going and where it might actually end up, due to the whole problem of "a day late and a buck short." Among them are Dr. Peter McCollough, Dr. Geert Vandenbosch, Dr. Ryan Cole and others.

According to these doctors, the best natural supplements that will help the body to minimize long term effects are these:
  • Nattokinase - from fermented soybeans. Research shows it assists the body's natural ability to deal with blood clots and dissolve spike proteins.[1]
  • Dandelion root - research shows that dandelion root can assist your body's biochemistry to prevent spike protein from binding to your cells.[2]
  • Selenium - helps reduce stress, aiding in helping the body repair itself and recover. (This is also one of the prep ingredients Dr. Bryan Ardis recommends in prepping for the shot if you have to get it.)[3]
  • Black sativa extract - may facilitate cellular repair.[4]
  • Green tea extract - research has shown it is a great anti-oxidant and is good for scavenging for free radicals.[5]
  • Irish sea moss - mineral-rich and can help rebuild damaged tissue and muscle.[6]

These supplements have demonstrated some wonderful health benefits in keeping your system normal after exposure to spike proteins.

But the thing is if you're trying to get all these supplements in one fell swoop, it can be costly.

Solution: Spike Support

There is a fantastic (and fairly new) supplement manufacturer out there called "The Wellness Company" started by none other than people like Dr. Peter McCollough (world famous and highly published caridologist) and Dr. Harvey Risch (renowned epidemiologist).

Their mission, from their website:

By unequivocally and unapologetically standing up for medical freedom and the right to affordable health care, our company’s vision champions the right to make one’s own choices for their body.

We strive to build a new health care system that earns people’s trust, governed and operated with transparency, and offering the highest quality practitioners who align at their core with our fundamental belief – to put the patient first.

"Spike Support" is a formula developed specifically to compliment the natural processes your body is trying to take to deal with the spike proteins that may be in your body, from any cause: whether from the vaccine, from covid, from shedding from others.

Spike Support Helps to deal with spike proteins

The advantage of this product is that the amounts and proportions of these different components in this formula are optimized for the specific task of equipping your body to deal with the effects of the spike proteins, whether from the vaccine, or from covid, or from shedding from others.

Look at this list of ingredients:

Spike Support List Of Ingredients

If you're concerned about shedding

If you're concerned about shedding, then according to doctors like Dr. Peter McCollough, the protocol for keeping yourself safe from the effects of the spike proteins is pretty much the same as you would follow above.

The only reason I mention it as a "separate category" is that many people are concerned about being exposed to these spike proteins from shedding that occurs with being exposed to others.

Whether you realize it or not, shedding is a thing and always has been. It's apparently partly how viruses spread, mutate and eventually die out of any population.

So, the protocol really is the same. I just wanted to mention it separately here in case anyone had the idea it needs to be some distinctly different treatment. Apparently, this is not the case.

The Lancet Publishes and then retracts a daming paper about the covid vaccines
Current Events, HEALTH WELLNESS

Lancet Publishes Paper Showing 3 Out Of Five Deaths From Vax And Then Withdraws The Paper

Dr. Joseph Mercola had a recent article[1] about another switcheroo just pulled by "The Lancet." They published a paper (preprint, which I will explain briefly) and then, in a flash, withdrew it from publication. You have to wonder if it was anything other than political pressure from Big Pharma.

The summary, from Dr. Mercola's paper:

July 5, 2023, Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Harvey Risch, Dr. Roger Hodkinson, an expert clinical pathologist, and colleagues published a systematic review of autopsy findings in people who died after receiving a COVID shot on The Lancet journal’s preprint server
The autopsy review found that 62.5% to 73.9% of post-jab deaths were likely caused by the injection
Preprints with The Lancet pulled the study in less than 24 hours
The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) also rejected the paper, as did the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The preprint server medRxiv and others also refused to post it
Belgian researchers report that two doses of the Pfizer mRNA COVID jab induced lethal “turbo cancers” in a mouse. Two days after receiving its second dose, one of the 14 injected mice (7%) died suddenly. No clinical signs of illness were present before its abrupt death. Upon post-mortem examination, the mouse was found to have lymphoma in several organs, including the heart, liver, kidneys, spleen and lungs

Concerned about the spike proteins? About consequences from the vax? About "shedding?"

Dr. Peter McCollough and his associates have developed what I believe is the best detox formula out there for strengthening your immune response to the spike proteins.

The details of what happened

Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Harvey Risch, Dr. Roger Hodkinson, an expert clinical pathologist, and several other colleagues published an article on July 5th, 2023.

It was a systematic review of autopsy results in people who died after receiving a COVID shot.

They published it on The Lancet journal’s "preprint server."

What is a "preprint server?"

According to "Author Services," (a research publisher) "A preprint[2], also known as the Author’s Original Manuscript (AOM), is the version of your article before you have submitted it to a journal for peer review."

The paper was published by these doctors and the Lancet apparently pulled it because of the number of downloads that were obtained by the public so rapidly.

So, what, exactly, did the paper say? Read it for yourself.[3] (You can download the paper here, even though the Lancet pulled it from their server.)

We initially identified 678 studies and, after screening for our inclusion criteria, included 44 papers that contained 325 autopsy cases and one necropsy case. Three physicians independently reviewed all deaths and determined whether COVID-19 vaccination was the direct cause or contributed significantly to death.

The most implicated organ system in COVID-19 vaccine-associated death was the cardiovascular system (53%), followed by the hematological system (17%), the respiratory system (8%), and multiple organ systems (7%). Three or more organ systems were affected in 21 cases.

The mean time from vaccination to death was 14.3 days. Most deaths occurred within a week from last vaccine administration. A total of 240 deaths (73.9%) were independently adjudicated as directly due to or significantly contributed to by COVID-19 vaccination ...

Among adjudicators, there was complete independent agreement (all three physicians) of vaccination causing or contributing to death in 203 cases (62.5%). The one necropsy case was judged to be linked to vaccination with complete agreement ...

The consistency seen among cases in this review with known COVID-19 vaccine adverse events, their mechanisms, and related excess death, coupled with autopsy confirmation and physician-led death adjudication, suggests there is a high likelihood of a causal link between COVID-19 vaccines and death in most cases.”

Dr. McCollough has literally hundreds of peer-reviewed papers. He knows his stuff.

The study showed that the most common cause of death or contributing factor after the vaccination was the vaccination. But we can't talk about that.

The vaccine and "Turbo-Cancers"

According to Dr. Mercola, "Belgian researchers have report that two doses of the Pfizer mRNA COVID jab induced lethal “turbo cancers” in a mouse. Two days after receiving its second dose, one of the 14 injected mice (7%) died suddenly. No clinical signs of illness were present before its abrupt death."

Upon post-mortem examination, the mouse was found to have lymphoma in several organs, including the heart, liver, kidneys, spleen and lungs. From the study[4]

“Two days following booster vaccination (i.e., 16 days after prime), at only 14 weeks of age, our animal suffered spontaneous death with marked organomegaly and diffuse malignant infiltration of multiple extranodal organs (heart, lung, liver, kidney, spleen) by lymphoid neoplasm.

Immunohistochemical examination revealed organ sections positive for CD19, terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase, and c-MYC, compatible with a B-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma immunophenotyped ...

Given the paucity of data on the long-term safety of the SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccines, it is vital that clinicians and scientists report any adverse event to establish potential correlations.

Our case adds to previous clinical reports on malignant lymphoma development following novel SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccination. Interestingly, we are the first to report a B-LBL subtype ...

Although strong evidence proving or refuting a causal relationship between SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccination and lymphoma development or progression is lacking, vigilance is required, with conscientious reporting of similar cases and a further investigation of the mechanisms of action that could explain the aforementioned association.”

So what to do if you've already had the jab?

Well, according to Dr. Mercola,

Your health may still be impacted long-term, so don’t take any more shots.

When it comes to treatment, it seems like many of the treatments that worked against severe COVID-19 infection also help ameliorate adverse effects from the jab. This makes sense, as the toxic, most damaging part of the virus is the spike protein, and that’s what your whole body is producing if you got the jab.

As mentioned earlier, eliminating the spike protein is a primary task to prevent and/or address post-jab injuries. Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine bind to and facilitate the removal of spike protein. According to McCullough, nattokinase, bromelain and curcumin also help degrade the spike protein.[5]

Consider a "detox" with nattokinase, bromelain and curcumin.

Dr. McCollough and his colleagues have actually developed what is probably the best "detox" formula for those who have been exposed to the spike proteins, whether from the virus or the vax.

Dr. Peter McCollough and his associates have put together a "detox" formula with the proper proportions of all the best defenses against the spike proteins - nattokinase, bromelain and curcumin.

BMI index is not the best measure of overall health
HEALTH WELLNESS

BMI Is Not The Best Indicator Of Health

I wasn't aware of debate in the health community about measuring body mass (BMI) and how it is being used as a reliable indicator of a person's health. While it has been used that way for over a hundred years, it seems to miss much, such as frame size or other issues.

Biggest problems using BMI as a health indicator

As Vance Voetberg said in an article at the Epoch times,

The BMI assessment was initially developed to evaluate the health of large populations, offering a broad perspective on the overall fitness of society. In this context, the BMI assessment generally provides accurate results. However, when applied to assess individuals, as is now the standard practice, it falls short of providing a comprehensive picture of an individual’s health status.

BMI is measured by taking a person’s weight and dividing it by the square of his or her height. The final number is categorized into five groups: underweight, normal, overweight, obese, and severely obese.

The conventional understanding defines the “normal” range as indicative of metabolic health, representing a balance between being too skinny or too fat. While this reasoning is seemingly logical, it is an imperfect and imprecise method for measuring individuals’ health and fitness.

BMI chart

Since BMI is solely based on a person’s height and weight, it provides an incomplete fitness assessment. It fails to consider crucial factors such as muscle mass, bone density, overall body composition, and racial and sex differences.

That makes sense to me. I have a couple boys who are very lean bodybuilders who show up as "obese" on the BMI scale. They're not. And they find that annoying when applying for things like life insurance.

“...a bodybuilder may have a very high BMI but be very lean because their muscle is increasing their weight, which increases their BMI,” said Chris Masterjohn, who has a doctorate in nutritional science. Therefore, BMI “is not a measurement of health at all—it is a measurement of your weight and height.”

Research shows that higher muscle mass serves as a crucial indicator of improved health and longevity, positively correlating with an increased lifespan. On the other hand, excess fat is strongly associated with a significant reduction in life expectancy.

The BMI test was initially developed for population-level assessments, not individual evaluations

“One of the key flaws is that it is not great at taking into account variability in body composition,” said Dr. Tracy Richmond, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School with more than 10 years of experience conducting weight-related research.

“Individuals with higher BMIs can be healthy,” she noted, adding that using BMI alone to determine health risks can lead to overlooking individuals who may require further assessment, potentially misleading healthy individuals into believing they are overweight and misinforming others who may face serious health challenges.

“Individuals with low or normal BMIs are often given a ‘pass’ and assumed to be healthy,” Richmond noted. But people with “normal” BMI scores may have disordered eating and be at risk of anemia and micronutrient deficiencies, she added.

What is better than BMI for assessing fitness?

Margaret Ashwell... says that the waist-to-height ratio offers a valuable alternative to the BMI assessment in analyzing body composition and health. WHtR compares waist circumference to height, with the ideal ratio being less than half of a person’s height.

“WHtR is a better indicator of early health risk than BMI because it is a proxy for central adiposity,” Ashwell told The Epoch Times. “Fat stored in central depots is a risk factor for major metabolic diseases, such as Type 2 diabetes and heart disease,” she added.

This simple method, Ashwell noted, accurately identifies the problem doctors should be looking for: the accumulation of fat. And given that increased exercise and muscle are associated with a smaller waist circumference, the WHtR assessment can distinguish between fat and muscle—unlike the BMI test.

There are a couple studies that have demonstrated that weight-to-height-ratio is a much better at assessing overall health. This 2021 study in "Frontiers in Public Health" showed WHtR more accuracy for predicting high blood pressure in people with Type 2 diabetes. And this study published at the NIH showed it is a better predictor of metabolic issues than the BMI.

“The simple message of ‘keep your waist to less than half your height’ can be applied to men and women and children of all ages in all ethnic groups,” Ashwell said.

The Best Ways to Measure Health

From the article:

While the WHtR test may offer advantages over BMI, it alone does not entirely assess an individual’s health and fitness.

Although a good WHtR score can be handy, it does not delve into other important aspects, such as potential nutrient deficiencies or elevated inflammation levels.

Therefore, Masterjohn suggests additional evaluations such as body fat analysis, fasting glucose measurement, lipid profile testing, inflammation markers like C-reactive protein, and a complete metabolic panel, blood count, and urinalysis to obtain a comprehensive understanding of one’s health.

Furthermore, he recommends a functional movement screen by a physical therapist or personal trainer to preserve optimal body functionality as people age.

The Amazing Health Benefits Of Chlorine Dioxide Therapy

A hard look at the benefits of Chlorine Dioxide therapy - from the "establishment" perspective and that of the alternative health care community.

Chlorine dioxide therapy recently came across my radar as a potential treatment for all kinds of health issues.

I’ve written elsewhere of the benefits of vitamin C, selenium and magnesium chloride as an “antidote” of sorts to the Covid mRNA vaccines. And many of my readers are already aware of the benefits of Ivermectin and hydroxichloroquine in improving the outcomes of fighting Covid.

There are also some great natural foods like elderberry, shiitake/maitake mushrooms and supplements derived from them that are wonderful immune system boosters.

Had Covid? Concerned about effects from the vax? Been exposed to someone else with covid or who has been exposed to the vax? Concerned about shedding? See the review of "SPIKE SUPPORT," a supplement specifically optimized for dealing with the affects of the spike proteins that might be affecting your system.

But there is something that came across my radar lately – the benefits of chlorine dioxide therapy as a tool for treating many diseases. I’m not a medical professional, but based on what many of them have said, this is definitely worth a good look!

First, let’s be aware of all the warnings regarding “chlorine dioxide therapy” (of course…..)

I am not a doctor. Nor am I a medical professional of any kind.

I do research and I have opinions about health, healing and natural medicine. But as per any web site, I will say that I am NOT OFFERING MEDICAL ADVICE OF ANY KIND. 

ALWAYS consult with your doctor or health care professional before embarking on ANY course of treatment or therapy. I do not assume any liability for any results if you should choose to follow the advice you find here that I've uncovered from these medical professionals.

In the end, YOU are responsible for the actions you take and the medical choices you decide to pursue with the advice of YOUR health care provider.

Look. This is an alternative medicine therapy. And there is a lot of quackery out there. But then again, there are a lot of things that have been discouraged or even rejected outright by the mainstream western medicine world that work. (Consider the war on Ivermectin, in spite of the fact that the National Institute of Health has not one, but two different web pages dealing with Ivermectin and showing that it is, in fact, effective in treating Covid. Check HERE and HERE to see what I mean.

So pardon me if I’m skeptical of the current western medical establishment. But having said that, you need to know that the warnings about this therapy pretty much come down to one thing.

If you're into natural approaches to health, you should study NAD and NMN. These are building blocks your body uses to repair cell damage and maintain vitality.

They will tell you that chlorine dioxide is bleach. And bleach will kill you. So they say….

Examples of the warnings: From Web MD… “Be careful not to purchase chlorine dioxide supplement products. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned consumers not to use these products due to the risk for serious safety issues and death.”

From Health Desk… “its use can be dangerous to human health. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has warned that risks of ingesting chlorine dioxide include: severe vomiting, severe diarrhea, low blood cell counts and low blood pressure due to dehydration, respiratory failure, changes to electrical activity in the heart that can lead to potentially fatal abnormal heart rhythms, and acute liver failure.”

Consider this video as representative of the standard "establishment" party line on this stuff.

This video comes from a Canadian television show. On issues like this, Canada and the US are very much in lockstep if you compare Health Canada philosophies and those of the FDA. And to be honest, there are some cautions in here you might want to consider if you're evaluating this as a potential treatment for something.

Mark Kelly on the Miracle Mineral Solution as seen on "The Fifth Estate."

But “they” also have NO CLUE why you (and I) are reluctant to take an mRNA vaccine. So opinions vary on the quality of “their” opinions.

I actually wrote a post about the video where Franklin Graham interviewed the head of the NIH about Covid vaccines and vaccine reluctance and the head of the National Institute of Health seriously seemed to have no clue why the “covid vaccine-hesitant” are vaccine hesitant.

They seem to have a very focused and in-depth frame of reference around part of the whole body of facts out there. And when it comes to alternative therapies and natural medicine, they don’t even seem to be able to wrap their heads around it.

Consider it an alternative worldview with disastrous consequences (since they hold most of the money and the power).

So just how much can chlorine dioxide do? Can it really even cure cancer?

I will make it clear: I am not a health care professional. I will only present information that I have found from others and you will have to decide what to do with this information and what, if anything, you may want to try or seek professional advice for. But having said that, there are some medical professionals who believe there is good reason to think that chlorine dioxide may, in fact, be very helpful in combating diseases as serious as certain kinds of cancers.

Consider, for example, this, from The Journal Of Cancer Treatment And Diagnosis.

A first patient with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the pancreas has decided, on his own, to refuse chemotherapy but to treat himself with lipoïc acid, hydroxycitrate combined with oral ingestion of chlorine dioxide. His blood tests and radiological examinations have almost normalized and the disease is stable at 18 months. Another patient with hormone resistant metastatic prostate cancer has experienced a sharp drop in PSA level as well as improved medical condition. From extensive literature review, the mechanism of action of chlorine dioxide is unknown. It is our hypothesis (albeit unproven) that chlorine dioxide results in tumor cell acidification of the alkaline pH of cancer cells.

From the abstract of an article on The Journal Of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis

And Covid? Can it cure Covid?

Well, anecdotal evidence is a funny thing. Sometimes you can find what you’re looking for, even when it’s not there. And the “gold standard” always seems to be the “double blind study.” But sometimes, there’s not enough time for that with all the dying from a new disease and all.

But to give you an idea of what others have done with this stuff and the results they believe they’ve found from it, take a look at this video to understand what they did in Bolivia to deal with Covid by using this treatment, and the results they had.

The SCIENCE of chlorine dioxide as used in Bolivia

In the end, it seems if you stack up enough anecdotal evidence, it starts to look like it shows some statistical probabilities, if you know what I mean....

So what is chlorine dioxide and what can this therapy do for you?

Rather than reinventing the wheel, I’m linking here to a video series developed by someone who has done a deep dive into this therapy and what his findings are. I’m not a medical professional and so I don’t make medical recommendations.

But I sure think what this guy has to say is worth consideration. See if it makes sense to you.

As the author of the video says,

“In this video, I want to share my two year journey of discovery with you so that you can save yourself some time and effort. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t do your own research, but I am saying that I have done a significant amount of unbiased research, and I was willing to go either way with regard to accepting the claims of chlorine dioxide.”

How To Protect Yourself From Vaccinated People (And From The Vaccine)

Dr Bryan Ardis On How to Counteract the COVID Spike Protein and How To Protect Yourself From Vaccine Shedding

Please Note:

This post has become pretty popular, and for good reason. But I have to say it's a bit "outdated," because it was written primarily for those "prepping" because they knew they needed to get the vaccine.

If you've already gotten the shot, this post is still informative purposes.

But you'll want to go HERE to read about the best way to supplement if you've already had the shot and you're concerned about the best way to remove the spike proteins from your system.

How to detox from spike proteins.

Dr Bryan Ardis, CEO of Ardis Labs, discusses in this MAGA Institute podcast how, with natural vitamin and mineral supplements, we can protect ourselves from both SARS-CoV-2 itself and any spike proteins that may be transmitted by shedding from people who have taken the COVID-19 gene therapy injections.

This has never been about treating Covid. It's always been about the vaccine. Just look at how they've downplayed ivermectin and you'll see what I mean.

If you're here, it's probably because you see the value in natural approaches to health care.  If so, you might want to read this article on something called "chlorine dioxide" and "chlorine dioxide therapy."

Perhaps you've heard of "shedding."

So first of all, what is "shedding?"

According to Dr. Palevsky, in a video featured on "America's Frontline Doctors," there are some concerns regarding "viral shedding" and particularly more with this mRNA vaccine. In part, he says,

And so, what we’ve been seeing is a massive increase in those who’ve been given the injection of blood clotting problems, miscarriages, stillborns, infertility, stroke, heart attack, autoimmune diseases, and death, just to name a few, and that’s in those who been injected.  So certainly there should be a suspicion when you see people around the injected people who have not been injected getting the typical symptoms of COVID in addition to miscarriages, bleeding, irregular menstrual cycles; it should raise a very, very strong suspicion.

As featured in "Americas's Frontline Doctors"

Now, in all fairness, the typical response from the medical community is that "viral shedding" is impossible. But as many of us know, they seem to be lying to us about many things, such as the effectiveness of ivermectin, HCQ and the like, as well as underreporting the adverse reactions to the vaccine.

So you're going to have to decide who you are going to trust on this issue.

My experience to date, however, is that the "Florence NIghtengales" of the medical community keep raising red flags and expressing their reasons for concern with extreme detail and clarity; but the establishment seems to keep saying, "just shut up and ignore them."

The Florence Nightengales are always in the minority - at least in the beginning.

If you have to get the vaccine, this is how to protect yourself from its damaging effects, according to Dr. Ardis.

Dr. Ardis also discusses that we need to be kind, loving and understanding as we attempt to rescue people from the COVID-19 "cult."

You can visit Dr. Ardis' website here.

You can also download a report here from the MAGA Institute.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm into natural supplements. THIS ONE is high on my list.

THE RECIPE, according to Dr Bryan Ardis - vitamin C, magnesium and selenium

The report in the link above contains a whole bunch of documentation for these ingredients and how they are effective in dealing with the adverse effects of the virus and the vaccine.

But, in short, Dr Ardis recommends the following:

  • Selenium - supports the liver's ability to produce glutathione. You need 200 mcg (micrograms) per day.
  • Vitamin C - very specific dosing required. Work up to 10,000 mG of vitamin C per day. 5000 in the morning and 5000 in the evening. It is water soluble. Tests have proven that vitamin C can even protect animals in labs from contaminants like lead sulphate and radiation poisoning.
  • If you need to get the vaccine, take vitamin C 4 hours before you go. You need 500 mG per KG of body weight. (See my notes, below...)
  • You need magnesium - magnesium chloride, magnesium citrate or magnesium glycinate. 500 mG per day and work your way up to 1000 mG per day.
  • Magnesium stops calcium from saturating the cells and prevents disease.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go to flccc.net and americasfrontlinedoctors.org for information on how to protect yourself from potentially deadly results from being around people who have been injected with the Covid vaccines.

By the way, I've also written an article about pine needle tea and how it can apparently help protect you from "Covid shedding."

NOTE on the Vitamin C quantity

I did some calculating about the amount of vitamin C that Dr. Ardis recommends to take within 1 to 4 hours before you go for the vaccine. For a 200 pound man, that would be 45,000 mG of vitamin C!!!!!

That does sound really crazy to me. I will be honest. For instance, Dr. Axe, a doctor of chiropractic, certified doctor of natural medicine and clinical nutritionist suggests that taking more than 2,000 mG of vitamin C per day is overload.

However... As Dr. Axe himself says,

There’s some evidence that 200 milligrams per day is the maximum amount of vitamin C that human cells can absorb. However, according to the Linus Pauling Institute, “There is no reliable scientific evidence that doses of vitamin C up to 10 g/day (10,000 milligrams) in adults are toxic or detrimental to health.”

So, Does This Really Work?

I am not a doctor, nor am I a medical professional of any kind. And I want to be VERY careful here to state that I am NOT giving medical advice; I am merely passing along advice from certified medical professionals.

But, at the same time, I do want to share some anecdotal evidence and give you my personal feeling regarding what I myself would do if I find myself in a situation where I would need to be "V'd" with one of these things.

The Anectodal evidence

My wife and I were out at dinner in the summer. Our waitress felt the way we do about this vaccine. But she needed to get it for work - they were threatening that she would lose her job if not jabbed.

Her experience with the first one was typical - sore arm at the injection site, aches, mild fever and the like. She was fearful of the second shot as they tell you that the second one is the one that really kicks your butt.

So I told her about this article (I'm adding this part 4 months later) about 3 days before she went for the second shot. She started that night with the protocol - 10,000 per day vitamin C, the selenium and the magnesium chloride up until the vaccine. And she continued it for a few days after the vaccine. From what she told me, though, I don't believe she did the extra "kick" of that vitamin C overdose just before the shot.

Even without that quantum dose of C before the shot, it seems she did exceedingly well.

The first day after the vaccine, I asked her how she made out and she said,

"Thank you so much for the information the other night. I took all the vitamins starting that night and 24 hours after vaccine #2 I feel great! My arm isn't even sore this time!

I followed up with her two weeks later (which is how I know she continued it for a week after the shot) to see how she did. In part, what she said was,

"I'm doing amazing!!! I had NO side effects from the second shot. My arm didn't even hurt. I was able to pick up a shift at work the day after I got my shot. I can never thank you enough for the information you gave me from Dr. Ardis. I really believe that was the reason I did so well. I even shared the regimen with some friends and they did great as well!

What I plan to do if I ever have to get the poke

Anecdotal evidence is a funny thing, and we tend to put a lot of emphasis on it - more than the evidence of others, as it turns out.

Quite honestly, if I am ever in a situation where I have to get the thing stuck in me, I think I might bump it up a bit a couple hours before I am scheduled to get it - perhaps I will go with an extra 5,000 mG in addition to the 10,000 prep for the few days before and the week after.

Because, in all honesty, I think my reaction is much like many of my readers have commented: 90,000 mG sounds like a LOT of vitamin C - even for a lab rat.

But that's me. And I am neither a doctor nor the son of a doctor.

(But I am the father of a DARN GOOD nutrition counselor... though I'm probably biased.)

Anyway, you'll have to do some research regarding this quantum vitamin C dose and use your judgement and the advice of a professional.

Good luck. God speed. Avoid the jab. But if you can't, this formula is recommended by a doctor and it seems from the feedback I'm getting to be hitting the target!
