Corona Pandemic and Brainless Panic -- With a Possible Alternative Remedy Tip
Call It Denial, Call It Anything
Some people may call it "denial", and I am calling it "a good stress management resulting with a strong immune system".
Well, I am not exactly denying the fact of this pandemic. Just like I was not denying the global air-water-food pollution. And neither am I denying that the world is run by a bunch of incompetent careerists posing as leaders, while being glorified by a mass of sheep-minded, brainwashed morons.
No, I am not in a denial business, but neither am I taking any of that more seriously than it deserves. I mean, it's O;K, to react to something like a pandemic by taking all possible measures -- but hey, people are going nuts over it.
Indeed, go practical about it for a moment. After you have washed your hands dozen of times in the last hour, and drank half a gallon of water or herbal tea, or shoved some honey with lemon in hot water down your throat, and stayed home -- what now?
Joining the scared crowd you are merely weakening your immune system. And, since every strong emotion seeks more reasons for its expression, there you go watch every installment of news, sponging in all that crap about corona.
You don't care anymore about democrats or republicans -- of course, unless your political fanaticism somehow makes you believe that "it's all their fault". Yes, they ordered an import of corona from China.
Are you people serious? So, now we got enough toilet paper for few months worth of crapping, and I also noticed that sugar and flour are missing from shelves. Great, now you can do more baking, to further weaken down your immune system with sweets.
Is that how we are supposed to face a calamity?
When everything is O.K., everybody is pretending to be an icon of smartness, people argue with arrogance and stamina -- and then they all fall apart because of one passing pandemic. So, I'll cry on your shoulder, and when I am done, you can use mine.
Yay, now we are really stronger after publicly consoling ourselves how "we are all in it".
People Die -- What Else Is New?
Each and every year we get hit by a flu season. Many old, frail, and those with preexisting heavy diagnoses die. But no country makes it internationally public how many -- and there are many.
A million died from swine flu, and no businesses, theaters, and other public places were closing, like it is happening now. If we would really want to call it a pandemic, let's call it a panic pandemic in the first place.
What definitely makes me wonder is this incredible brainwashability of masses. It's like no one is seeing the simple and well known fact that the news media will blow everything out of proportion to get their rating. Hey, someone there in far away mountains of Montenegro farted a little louder, and you immediately "have to know about it".
Come on, folks, it's their daily job to come out with juicy stories -- not necessarily about that fart, but this pandemic is an ideal material for them.
Just yesterday I happened to overhear how Canada had some 230,000 homeless people, or was it just this city, who cares. Now, they are the first candidates to attract this virus, right?
Wrong. The first ones are those scared-shitless, well fed and panic-stricken individuals worrying about their precious asses. Those homeless folks have developed a thick skin through their hardening life-style. Plus, they have another advantage of not possessing TV's.
And yet, yes, many of those are bound to get sick. Besides, the world is full of baby-boomers, like myself, many of them going frail, visiting doctors on regular basis, with a few heavy diagnoses on them. Then, there are those young druggies who have weakened their immunity, heavy smokers, drinkers, and some mental patients with less than optimal immune system functioning.
Also,think of all those malnourished people of the world. And I am not only talking about those who don't have enough food, but also about those who have too much, and who are screwing themselves up royally by overeating. Digestive system is using enormous amounts of available body's energy, and not much is left for healing -- especially with so many of us being emotional eaters, munching on something all the day long.
Personally, I am on intermittent fasting for the last six months, eating only within the window of 5 hours, and fasting for 19. So I am tempted here to preach to you about overall health benefits of it, including a stronger immune system. But I won't.
And it's not only about amounts, quality, and frequency of eating, but, for Pete's sake, most of people are hardly breathing, and they are doing it wrong, with their chests rising up instead of their tummies. It's anxiety breathing, look at babies and dogs how their tummies are going up and down, not chest.
How can your immune system function properly by getting that minimum of oxygen? Our body will forgive a lot, but at times when it has an enemy to fight or prevent from invading it -- it needs every little boost available.
Let's face the simple truth here -- we are "normally" constantly bombarded by untold variety of germs, and our immune system is handling it well. So, it's not about your "picking up corona or not" -- but how your body will deal with it.
Pandemic of Panic
How panicky are we? I heard this story from a store manager, about people climbing over the shelves to grab toilet paper after the aisle was closed with intention to hand out one pack per person.
I see people wearing masks -- not so many though -- who believe that the virus will only try to get through their mouth and nostrils. And it's almost useless for me to talk about the mental damage that the news media are causing on everybody's immune system.
For those of you who are not completely familiar with these biological facts, our immune system works in a close trio with nervous and endocrine system. So our crappy emotions and thoughts and beliefs are really doing a number on our health.
Can anybody out there explain to me how they are protecting themselves by "staying informed"? Please, I am dying to get educated. How will it help me to know how many new people have died in which country, how fast corona is spreading, and to hear over and over again the same thing?
Besides, corona is not the only virus and bacterium around, and you can have a sneeze, a cough, or a fever from any kind of infection in your body. And the biggest irony in all this is, that you may go so suggestible about it that you may REALLY get in trouble by mistaking a common cold for corona.
Let me tell you about a case I read about in one of my many books. A firefighter came to the emergency ward of a hospital claiming that he was experiencing a heart attack. After a quick exam doctors told him his heart was perfectly fine, and he only had an anxiety attack.
He wouldn't leave the hospital, now arguing with the doctors that everybody on his side of the family had a heart problem -- and they are "misdiagnosing him" To put his mind at ease, they repeated the tests and result was the same, except for those symptoms of anxiety, which by now became more violent.
And guess what. The dude got so worked up emotionally that he died right there, with a heart which had been normal -- just with a mind being too eager to fulfill his prophecy.
After telling you about this case, I am aware that someone may AGAIN ask me for the reference, like they recently did when I mentioned another case.
Hey, folks, I've read a shitloads of these books, how could I possibly remember in which one was this or that case mentioned. Like I am rushing to make a note about it, for just in case if someone may not believe me.
Like that other story -- and many of you must have read about it, involving a cancer patient, whose doctor casually mentioned a drug in its experimental phase which "seemed to be extremely promising".
In short, the dude kept pressuring the doctor to give him that drug -- and after only a few days of using it, he miraculously lost any trace of cancer in him. For many months he stayed healthy, until a day when he happened to read in a magazine how that particular drug had turned out to be completely useless.
Upon reading it, he got his cancer back in days to follow, and died of it.
Now, please, think for a moment -- if his mind could cure him, and then kill him -- what is this mass-hypnosis of global panicking potentially capable of doing to you -- if you let it.
My point being, nevertheless, clear -- don't psyche yourself down into a sickness, because if a dude could cause himself a heart attack, and another one had a deadly relapse of cancer, you may cause yourself the symptoms of one stupid corona, which is not deadly per se, but only in combination with other preexisting health issues. Don't go creative with these "preexisting issues", by weakening your immune system.
And hey, everybody, lie to yourself that you are safe -- your body will appreciate it. Look at it this way -- you are already lying to yourself by worrying about a "possibility" of your getting sick -- which is not a fact -- so why not lie the way that is more health-promoting.
I am 75, and I am visiting stores, crowded places like malls, and I don't give a rat's ass about one corona virus. Don't do what I am doing, but at least do your best to trick your nature into wellness.
You'll be just fine, and I mean it. You are invincible! Your immune system is stronger than ever! Life is great, and it's a safe world we live in!
And now, those of you who are "professional sourpusses" -- have your turn to tell me how "I am not understanding the gravity of the situation". Tell me about "extinction of mankind".
I won't read it.
A Little Tip
According to Google, negative ions kill viruses, including corona. You can surround yourself with negative ions by taking a walk in a wood -- especially pine trees are beneficial. Also, beside a river, a waterfall, even taking showers produces negative ions. Even wind does it. Walking barefoot on grass or generally on ground does it too.
Next, use Himalayan salt lamp, which also produces negative ions -- and place it beside your computer which produces positive, "bad" ions, along with much of other electronics at home. Burning beewax candle helps as well.
Avoid places which generate a lot of positive ions, such like shopping malls.
And probably more than anything -- let me repeat it -- COOL IT!!! STRESS LOWERS YOUR IMMUNITY. Watch some TV comedies instead of the news. Drink plenty of liquids, eat less if you are overdoing it, and breathe more slowly, a little deeper, regularly, and with your belly, not your chest. That will activate your parasympathetic nervous system, which keeps you calm, and slow down the sympathetic one which makes you anxious.
If that may help, entertain yourself with a conspiracy theory, and imagine some sinister forces creating all this paranoia -- like "world bankers somehow needing a huge economic crisis -- which in the past they initiated with world wars, now impossible because of the presence of nukes -- and spreading a well-timed virus, which will disappear soon of itself".
I know, beside being a ridiculously long sentence, it just might be crazy enough to sound believable, but then at least you can hate them instead of being scared of the virus. Anger is healthier than fear, it mobilizes a fighting spirit -- good for immunity.
You may also amuse yourself with a claim of this German medical doctor, a virologist, Dr. Claus Kohnlein, MD. -- that clinically speaking, corona doesn't exist at all, at least not in a sense it's being publicized as a deadly virus. It does exist as a family of flu viruses, but there is no way of telling with existing equipment if this one is not just a stronger strain of flu.
According to him, test for corona is extremely unreliable, and any strange molecule under microscope may be misinterpreted as corona. He personally had treated a family who came back from skiing with very sore throats, cough, and a fever, and instead of testing them for corona, he used the much more reliable test for common flu.
And that's where they showed positive. He told them to stay home, drink plenty of liquids, have a good rest and eat good foods. They got well in a week time. No panic over corona. He said how many of us in the past had corona virus not knowing it, and treating it as a flu we got well.
From the World Health Organization came panicky directives with suggested therapeutic protocol presenting so called "aggressive medicine" -- which destroys immune system instead of helping it. Which might explain so many dead in Italy.
For example, in Italy, a 50 year old man was allegedly treated with extremely high doses of metilprednison, whole 600 mg. On top of that he was given moxifloxacin, a very strong antibiotic, then lopinavir and ritonavir, which are strong medications for AIDS, very toxic stuff. Also interferon, which suppresses immune system.
As the doctor is saying, the therapy was repeated with strong antibiotics. All in all, the man's immune system got destroyed, and he died.
Apparently, China started doing well since they stopped testing for corona.
Well, I am not trying to spread one doctor's opinion almost negating existence of corona, while the whole world is going nuts. I am simply showing how not all of the medical profession are jumping on that paranoid bandwagon.
By the way, while so many panicky eyes are stuck on the huge mortality in Italy, do you know that in Italy -- regardless of corona pandemic -- half a million people die each year from all kinds of causes, of course, mostly age? Without reliable tests to tell if a person really died from corona -- how many of those "normal" Italian deaths are ascribed to corona.
Think about it.
And, after all this, do I need to mention a disclaimer? O.K. I am not a doctor, and nothing being said here is to be mistaken for a reliable suggestion or even an advice, but as something that you may simply consider for your stress-management story, to ease your nervousness over this pandemic.
In other words, I am just legally covering my ass. What I personally choose to believe is my own business, and no one has to follow my example. Cheer up everybody, it will soon be over, and who knows, maybe in retrospect we are all going to have a good laugh. I will.
