How to Boost Your Immune System during the Coronavirus Lockdown | Ariel Belloso | NutritionRaw.com 

Our immune system’s vital role is to defend our bodies against disease by fighting infections, such as coronavirus and others; hence it is vitally crucial we should take great care of it, especially right now.

Did you know that roughly 75% of your immune tissue is located in your digestive system? Amazing, right?

To stay healthy and prevent diseases, digestion needs to run smoothly, not only to overcome or prevent illnesses such as Coronavirus infections, but recent studies have shown that brain diseases such as Parkinson’s originates in the gut.

Digestive problems are easily avoided by learning food combining.

In essence, our digestive system works best when meals are simple and combinations are minimal.

The majority of meals eaten by people in the western world are not put together with digestion in mind, and in fact, are bound to cause problems.

The standard combination of a starch – like potatoes or pasta – and a protein – like meatballs or steak for instance – is a digestive disaster waiting to happen because they require conflicting digestive mediums to break them down.

Efficient digestion also has a notable influence on the body’s energy levels. By adopting compatible food combinations, the digestive task is lessened, allowing more energy for other activities, including healing.

I simplify below the most essential food combining rules for easy understanding:

1. Eat fruit with no other food, except green non-starchy vegetables

Examples for green non-starchy vegetables are celery, spinach, asparagus, broccoli, cucumber, lettuce, sprouts, collard greens, eggplant, etc. For clarification purposes, examples for starchy vegetables are carrot, beet, cauliflower, corn, zucchini, artichoke, etc.

If starch is combined with sugar, the starch is disguised, preventing the adaptation of the saliva to starch digestion. That is, the saliva will not contain the enzyme, salivary amylase, necessary for starch digestion.

Sugars also inhibit the secretion of gastric juice, interfering with protein digestion. If the fruit is detained in the stomach, fermentation follows.

2. Sugar and Fat combination (in large quantities)

Fats take a longer time to digest, while sugar (being any type such as fruits, dates or even refined sugar) tends to digest quickly.

When fats and sugars are mixed together in sufficient quantities, sugar will ferment; gas and bloating will occur among other symptoms.

The main issue here is QUANTITY!

Adding citrus dressings to your salads, when they contain some nuts or avocados, is OK, but don’t overdo it by pouring tons of olive oil on top. In fact, consuming oils are often a bloating culprit.

3. Eat protein foods and starch foods at separate meals.

This is the combination of cooked starch and proteins, so this one obviously doesn’t apply to raw food meals.

Starches such as cereal, bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, corn, legumes, squash, etc. should not be consumed at the same meal together with proteins, such as all flesh, nuts, seeds, milk, yogurt, cheese, eggs etc.

As stated earlier, salivary amylase is destroyed in the stomach in the presence of a highly acidic medium. Since protein digestion requires such a medium, this combination is best avoided.

Even though I cite some animal products on this article, I do so with the intention of helping folks to transition from S.A.D to vegan or raw vegan diets while lessening the burden of the digestive system at the same time.

4. Avoid Sugar and Starch

This mixture often leads to a lot of gas and fermentation among other complications and it’s usually experienced by eating some types of breads, pastries, cakes, cookies, etc. in large quantities.

As I stated previously, if starch is combined with sugar, the starch is disguised, preventing the adaptation of the saliva to starch digestion.

Conclusion

The idea behind many food combining rules is to simplify the digestive process by eating simpler meals.

It’s better to vary our diet from meal to meal, rather than get a lot of variety in a single meal.

As you learn more about food combining and eating simply, you’ll find that experiencing a “silent” digestion is often one of the best practices in order to achieve optimal health, and best of all, it’s also more enjoyable to eat this way.

We apply food combining rules to all of our recipes, which partly explains why so many folks experience such great healing benefits with raw foods.

Did Hand-Washing Kill The Flu? | Dr. Ron Paul & Daniel McAdams | RonPaulInstitute.org

Astonishingly, the UK public health authority has announced that this flu season has not seen a single case of influenza. The US and elsewhere are showing similar numbers. Has the flu disappeared? If so, why? The “experts” are claiming that hand-washing, masks, and social distancing have defeated the flu virus. So why didn’t those measures work against the Covid virus? Also today, social media morphs into NATO cheerleaders…

These 7 States Are On The Verge Of Herd Immunity | Tyler Durden | ZeroHedge.com

Nothing seems to scare the establishment more than a return to ‘normal’. And by ‘normal’, we mean a return to an environment outside of the tyrannical control of career politicians and bureaucrats who have got a taste for this ‘being king’ stuff and know that anyone who questions their edicts will be ‘canceled’ by their Covidian cultists.

So, a week after Johns Hopkins surgeon, Dr. Marty Makary, penned an Op-ed in the WSJ saying that we will have herd immunity by April… and was instantly disavowed as ‘dangerous’, some awkward ‘facts’ and ‘science’ have been dropped by none other than FundStrat’s Tom Lee.

“…cumulatively and slowly, the US is seeing more states reach that combined level of vaccinations + infections approach what is seen as herd immunity.”

Source

So far, South Dakota, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Arizona, Oklahoma, Utah, and Tennessee are the nearest.

Lee’s “math” – which we also know is racist – appears to fit with Makary’s arguments for why the recent plunge in cases, hospitalizations, and deaths is not policy-related (no matter how much the politicians and their media lackeys push that narrative):

 “…the consistent and rapid decline in daily cases since Jan. 8 can be explained only by natural immunity. Behavior didn’t suddenly improve over the holidays; Americans traveled more over Christmas than they had since March. Vaccines also don’t explain the steep decline in January. Vaccination rates were low and they take weeks to kick in.”

India’s dramatic fall in virus cases leaves experts stumped – Breitbart.com

When the coronavirus pandemic took hold in India, there were fears it would sink the fragile health system of the world’s second-most populous country

India’s dramatic fall in virus cases leaves experts stumped

By KRUTIKA PATHI and ANIRUDDHA GHOSAL

Associated PressThe Associated PressNEW DELHI

NEW DELHI (AP) — When the coronavirus pandemic took hold in India, there were fears it would sink the fragile health system of the world’s second-most populous country. Infections climbed dramatically for months and at one point India looked like it might overtake the United States as the country with the highest case toll.

But infections began to plummet in September, and now the country is reporting about 11,000 new cases a day, compared to a peak of nearly 100,000, leaving experts perplexed.

They have suggested many possible explanations for the sudden drop — seen in almost every region — including that some areas of the country may have reached herd immunity or that Indians may have some preexisting protection from the virus.

The Indian government has also partly attributed the dip in cases to mask-wearing, which is mandatory in public in India and violations draw hefty fines in some cities. But experts have noted the situation is more complicated since the decline is uniform even though mask compliance is flagging in some areas.

It’s more than just an intriguing puzzle; determining what’s behind the drop in infections could help authorities control the virus in the country, which has reported nearly 11 million cases and over 155,000 deaths. Some 2.4 million people have died worldwide.

“If we don’t know the reason, you could unknowingly be doing things that could lead to a flare-up,” said Dr. Shahid Jameel, who studies viruses at India’s Ashoka University.

India, like other countries, misses many infections, and there are questions about how it’s counting virus deaths. But the strain on the country’s hospitals has also declined in recent weeks, a further indication the virus’s spread is slowing. When recorded cases crossed 9 million in November, official figures showed nearly 90% of all critical care beds with ventilators in New Delhi were full. On Thursday, 16% of these beds were occupied.

That success can’t be attributed to vaccinations since India only began administering shots in January — but as more people get a vaccine, the outlook should look even better, though experts are also concerned about variants identified in many countries that appear to be more contagious and render some treatments and vaccines less effective.

Among the possible explanations for the fall in cases is that some large areas have reached herd immunity — the threshold at which enough people have developed immunity to the virus, by falling sick or being vaccinated, that the spread begins to slacken, said Vineeta Bal, who studies immune systems at India’s National Institute of Immunology.

But experts have cautioned that even if herd immunity in some places is partially responsible for the decline, the population as a whole remains vulnerable — and must continue to take precautions.

This is especially true because new research suggests that people who got sick with one form of the virus may be able to get infected again with a new version. Bal, for instance, pointed to a recent survey in Manaus, Brazil, that estimated that over 75% of people there had antibodies for the virus in October — before cases surged again in January.

“I don’t think anyone has the final answer,” she said.

And, in India, the data is not as dramatic. A nationwide screening for antibodies by Indian health agencies estimated that about 270 million, or one in five Indians, had been infected by the virus before vaccinations started — that’s far below the rate of 70% or higher that experts say might be the threshold for the coronavirus, though even that is not certain.

“The message is that a large proportion of the population remains vulnerable,” said Dr. Balram Bhargava, who heads India’s premier medical research body, the Indian Council of Medical Research.

But the survey offered other insight into why India’s infections might be falling. It showed that more people had been infected in India’s cities than in its villages, and that the virus was moving more slowly through the rural hinterland.

“Rural areas have lesser crowd density, people work in open spaces more and homes are much more ventilated,” said Dr. K. Srinath Reddy, president of the Public Health Foundation of India.

If some urban areas are moving closer to herd immunity — wherever that threshold lies — and are also limiting transmission through masks and physical distancing and thus are seeing falling cases, then maybe the low speed at which the virus is passing through rural India can help explain sinking numbers, suggested Reddy.

Another possibility is that many Indians are exposed to a variety of diseases throughout their lives — cholera, typhoid and tuberculosis, for instance, are prevalent — and this exposure can prime the body to mount a stronger, initial immune response to a new virus.

“If the COVID virus can be controlled in the nose and throat, before it reaches the lungs, it doesn’t become as serious. Innate immunity works at this level, by trying to reduce the viral infection and stop it from getting to the lungs,” said Jameel, of Ashoka University.

Despite the good news in India, the rise of new variants has added another challenge to efforts here and around the globe to bring the pandemic under control. Scientists have identified several variants in India, including some that have been blamed for causing new infections in people who already had an earlier version of the virus. But they are still studying the public health implications.

Experts are considering if variants may be driving a surge in cases in the the southern state of Kerala, which had previously been hailed as a blueprint for tackling the virus. Kerala now accounts for nearly half of India’s current COVID-19 cases. Government-funded research has suggested that a more contagious version of the virus could be at play, and efforts to sequence its genome are ongoing.

With the reasons behind India’s success unclear, experts are concerned that people will let down their guard. Large parts of India have already returned to normal life. In many cities, markets are heaving, roads are crowded and restaurants nearly full.

“With the reducing numbers, I feel that the worst of COVID is over,” said M. B. Ravikumar, an architect who was hospitalized last year and recovered. “And we can all breathe a sigh of relief.”

Maybe not yet, said Jishnu Das, a health economist at Georgetown University who advises the West Bengal state on handling the pandemic.

“We don’t know if this will come back after three to four months,” he warned.

One-Third of Troops Turning Down CCP Virus Vaccine: Pentagon | theepochtimes.com

About one-third of U.S. military troops have turned down the vaccine for the CCP virus, or the novel coronavirus, said the Pentagon on Wednesday.

Maj. Gen. Jeff Taliaferro, a top official in the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the military has a two-thirds acceptance rate for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccine.

“Our initial look—and this is of course very early data—is acceptance rates are somewhere in the two-thirds territory,” Taliaferro said in a hearing. “And of course, it varies by different groups.”

“We believe that, of course, the vaccine is the right thing to do. It’s clearly safe for service members,” Taliaferro said, noting that military officials want personnel to get the shot, reported Politico. “And we need to continue to educate our force and help them understand the benefits.”

Maj. Gen. Steven Nordhaus, the head of operations for the National Guard Bureau, told the panel that the National Guard had an acceptance rate of “two-thirds to 70 percent,” mirroring the military at large.

Specifically, of about 916,000 doses administered to Department of Defense (DOD) personnel, 359,000 have received at least one dose, while 147,000 are fully vaccinated, said Bob Salesses, who is acting defense secretary for homeland defense and global security, according to the Military Times.

Salesses told the hearing that “it’ll probably be sometime in late July, August” before the DOD vaccinates its civilian, military, and contractor workforce.

“With new variants popping up across the globe, I’m not sure we can wait two years” for the full Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) said in the hearing, according to the Military Times. “It’s critical for our national security that every service member, as well as DOD civilian personnel and contractors, receive vaccines as soon as possible.”

Previously, the DOD did not specify how many soldiers were declining the shot.

A spokesman for the agency, John Kirby told Politico and other news outlets on Wednesday that the DOD doesn’t have a system in place to track vaccinations among troops. He dispelled the idea that the Pentagon is withholding information from news outlets and the public.

“Nobody is hiding data,” Kirby said. “We don’t have a system in place across the services to specifically track data with respect to those individuals who for whatever reason are declining.”

Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for the CCP virus are under emergency-use authorization by the FDA. It means the agency has not fully cleared their usage.

The Epoch Times has reached out to the Pentagon for comment.
