LIVE 21-Day Plant Based Challenge Course | Stephanie Spencer RN, BSN Certified, Plant Based Nutrition T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies

A recent groundbreaking study from the British Medical Journal tracked almost 3,000 frontline health care workers (doctors and nurses) that had high exposure to COVID.  After adjusted for confounding factors like a preexisting healthy lifestyle and/or underlying health conditions, the study found that those who contracted COVID that followed Plant Based diets had a 73% lower risk of having a moderate to severe course of infection than the general population.  But those on a high-protein, low carb (keto, paleo) diet had a 48% higher risk of a moderate to severe course of COVID infection than the general population.

So even though they controlled their weight with a keto/paleo type of diet, these healthcare workers had almost a 50% weaker immune response than those who were not on any special diet at all.

This is because a high-meat diet is relatively low in nutrient density (we discuss this in my class), whereas a Plant-Based diet is rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients which strengthen the immune system.

And as a bonus, a hyper-nourishing, high fiber Whole Food Plant Based Diet is the easiest way to attain permanent weight loss (no will-power required when you’re never hungry!) while strengthening your immune system AT THE SAME TIME!

Is Natural Immunity More Effective Than the COVID Shot? | Dr. Joseph Mercola | PrepareForChange.net

From mercola.com, but he is taking things down after 48 hours, so you get to see it here:

Story at-a-glance

  • According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data, COVID-19 “cases” have trended downward since peaking during the first and second week of January 2021. At first glance, this decline appears to be occurring in tandem with the rollout of COVID shots. However, “cases” were on the decline before a meaningful number of people had been vaccinated
  • COVID-19 “cases” peaked January 8, 2021, when more than 300,000 new positive test results were recorded on a daily basis. By February 21, that had declined to a daily new case count of 55,000
  • COVID-19 gene modification injections were granted emergency use authorization at the end of December 2020, and by February 21, only 5.9% of American adults had been fully injected with two doses. Despite such a low injection rate, new “cases” had declined by 82%
  • The best explanation for a declining COVID-19 case rate appears to be natural immunity from previous infections. A study by the National Institutes of Health suggests COVID-19 prevalence was 4.8 times higher than previously thought, thanks to undiagnosed infection
  • The survivability of COVID-19 outside of nursing homes is 99.74%. If you’re under the age of 40, your chance of surviving a bout of COVID-19 is 99.99%. You can’t really improve your chances of surviving beyond that, so COVID shots cannot realistically end the pandemic

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data,1 COVID-19 “cases” have trended downward since peaking during the first and second week of January 2021.

How the Pursuit of Satisfaction, Not Happiness, Makes Us Truly Happier – BlueZones.com

By Allen S. Weiss, MD, FACP, FACR, MBA, Chief Medical Officer of Blue Zones Project. The former President and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System in Naples, Florida, Dr. Weiss also had a solo practice in Rheumatology, Internal Medicine, and Geriatrics for twenty-three years. He is board-certified in all three specialties and is recognized both as a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and a Fellow of the American College of Rheumatology. 

Happiness is an essential quality for a good life and a positive measure in successful blue zones communities. But what exactly is happiness?

The discussion starts in antiquity with Aristotle’s views of happiness in Nicomachean Ethics that are still relevant today. Aristotle claims that true happiness is not fleeting, like a feeling, but rather a measure of how well you have lived to your full potential. People pursue money or pleasure because they believe these things will make them happy; but in Aristotle’s view, true happiness is always an end in itself.

Happiness is being happy in the moment, but life satisfaction is being happy about your life. Satisfaction with your life overall also creates happiness. Various aspects may be great or not as good but taken as a whole, three characteristics define life satisfaction which, in turn, creates happiness.

World Population Review | Healthiest Countries 2021 | WorldPopulationReview.com

2021 Population: 60,367,477
All countries aren’t created equal, and there are a variety of factors that contribute to healthy, happy countries – as well as factors that contribute to unhealthy countries. Typically, the healthiest countries are those that are developed. These countries have lower pollution rates, access to quality health care, and access to clean, safe drinking water. On the other hand, unhealthy countries may not have access to clean drinking water or health care. Diseases run rampant. Pollution may be high, leading to health problems, illnesses, and death. The life expectancy of the residents of these countries is low, and infant mortality is high. Quality of life is dramatically lower than in the more developed countries.

The Bloomberg Global Health Index takes a look at several of these factors to rank the healthiest (and unhealthiest) countries in the world. The factors that are used to rank the countries include:

  • Health risks (tobacco use, high blood pressure, obesity)
  • Availability of clean water
  • Life expectancy
  • Malnutrition
  • Causes of death
Using these factors, the index ranks each country out of a score of 100. According to the 2019 ranking, Spain is considered to have the healthiest people globally, with a score of 92.75. Spain boasts a life expectancy of 83.5 years, which is expected to rise to 85.8 by 2040 and be the highest in the world.

Healthy eaters PROVEN by science to be 40% less likely to need hospitalization if infected with Covid virus, and 10% less likely to catch it in the first place | S. D. Wells | NaturalNews.com

(Natural News) One reason natural health advocates did not panic when the pandemic broke relies solely on the fact that we have faith in our immune systems because we eat right, supplement, drink clean water and use natural personal care products. Natural health advocates also don’t get neuro-damaging-chemicals, heavy metal toxins or protein “payloads” injected into our bodies regularly. That also means (we) don’t take a handful of prescription medications daily, if any at all. Remember, the people on pharmaceutical medications are and remain the sickest people in the country. There’s a reason for that, as we see their bodies break down, more and more, year after year. Now, science is proving that healthy eaters are much less likely to catch Covid, or need hospitalization if they do.

King’s College London — scientists discover ultimate way to cut your risk of catching Covid, and how to avoid a severe case of it, if you do 

Are you eating clean (organic, local or homegrown) fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds daily? How many times is that your “meal?” Have you cut out processed foods from your daily intake? How often do you cheat? It’s time to take a really close look, because if you want to improve your immune system, eating on the 5-a-day plan, including greens, could be all the difference you’re looking for, and for good.
