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 |

(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.

7 Things to Do Now to Make Healthy Eating Easy and Fun – Blue Zones

…food is the entrance ramp for better living. —Dan Buettner Click To Tweet

None of the blue zones centenarians ever tried to live to 100. They don’t count calories, take fancy supplements, or even read labels. They simply eat foods that are local, in season, and readily available. They find ways to celebrate food with family and friends. They live in environments that subconsciously nudge them to into better eating habits. As we have applied the wisdom of the world’s Blue Zones diet to transform cities in the United States, we can do the same in our individual lives.

How Not to Get Sick While Traveling (+ How Chia Seeds Can Help) – Blue Zones

We’ve all been there: you wake up on the first full day of your much-anticipated beach vacation with a sore throat and runny nose, you are on a business trip and arrive at your first meeting with a pounding head, or you touch down from your fun vacation and immediately get laid up with a cold.

Whether it’s for business or pleasure, we’re all traveling more than ever according to a global study by the World Tourism Organisation. Stateside, overseas travel has increased by over 170% in the last 20 years, thanks in part to the rise of travel planning online. Business travel spending is expected to reach $1.7 trillion by 2022, which seems to be a reflection of the overall global economy. As a company, Blue Zones was founded by explorers, researchers, and journalists, and we all spend many days on the road.

For help with staying healthy on the road, we turned to John Ayo, a healthy travel expert and keynote speaker who is the author of Travel Balance: Where Healthy Travel Drives Greater Business Profitability. John spent 30+ years traveling around the world for IBM, and he has spoken to thousands of people in dozens of countries on how to stay sane and healthy while traveling. He also consults with businesses and organizations that want to keep their employees healthier and happier.

He shared his inside secrets to reducing stress on the road:

Blue Zones: How did you go from a corporate job to being a travel wellness guru?

John Ayo: I had a long, successful career at IBM. I led the team that closed the biggest software deal in the company’s history for over $1B. There was a period there that I was on the road a lot, wasn’t fulfilled, was constantly sick and in pain, and could never get any sleep. I had it all: sinus infections in Tokyo, digestive trouble in Mexico, and the flu in London. And then I still had to go and do my job.

I went to countless doctors and had so many scans and tests and no one could figure out what was going on. They mostly said it was in my head.  I finally went to chiropractors, acupuncturists, and alternative therapists and started feeling better. I’m an engineer by trade, and my problem-solving brain kicked in. I was still working, but I went back to school to get a doctorate in naturopathy.

Towards the end of my time at IBM, I was leading a sales class in 26 countries and was constantly flying and on the road. But I had learned how to stay healthy and energized while traveling, which is why I wrote Travel Balance.  It is incredible how much healthy travel affects productivity and the bottom line. That was of interest to businesses, of course, and that’s how I started consulting and speaking about travel wellness. I’m an engineer with an MBA and an ND (Doctorate in Naturopathy), so I can connect with corporate audiences.

How to Heal From Anything | Part 1 | Dr. Christiane Northrup |

Many people believe that health is an absence of symptoms. And, the Western medical system supports this. Yet today, more people than ever are dealing with chronic diseases, mystery illnesses, and other symptoms that cannot easily be cured with Western medicine. While not all diseases can be cured, every disease can be healed. In this video, Dr. Northrup tells you how you can heal from just about anything.
If you are under the age of 50 (give or take 5-10 years), you have probably been raised believe the only “true” approach to health is through modern medicine. In fact, most doctors today were taught that this approach—prescribing pharmaceutical drugs, giving vaccines, and performing surgery—is the only valid way to treat patients and keep them healthy. And health insurance companies reinforce this by refusing to cover anything but these same drugs and surgeries.

Yet, if you watch the commercials or read the package inserts, you know that the medicines being pushed on us all come with a long list of potentially harmful, even fatal, “side effects.” And we are to simply accept this because the assumption is these are proven by science…and everything else is not.

The truth is, there is just as much science to support natural and alternative approaches to healing disease.

How to Beat Fatigue

Far more treatments and therapies exist in this world than you are being told about – and their power has been proven, scientifically.

In fact, thousands of studies show that many “alternative” medicines and therapies—ones your doctor doesn’t know about or isn’t allowed to recommend—are FAR superior for treating a majority of chronic health conditions today.

If you want to expand your horizons and discover fact-based solutions for what is ailing you (or a family member), I highly recommend that you watch this documentary series, Proven: Healing Breakthroughs Backed By Science.

Each episode will provide you with highly effective and safe approaches to wellness that will change your life.

« It’s FREE. Check it out here. »

There are so many complementary, alternative, and natural ways to protect and reclaim strong, optimal health. Most of these healing resources are amazingly simple, and you can take advantage of them all by yourself!

Whether you are struggling with a chronic health condition, want more vital energy, or you simply want to defy the effects of aging in the years to come, I cannot recommend this documentary series highly enough.

I’d Rather Die than Become Vegan | Ariel Belloso |

All too often, people fail to act in their own long-term interest, favouring present pleasure and using illogical statements to justify their decisions.

For instance, I’ve had people tell me they admire how I eat, but they say: “Ariel, I’d rather shave a decade off my lifespan and keep eating my meat.”

All too often I hear people say, “I’d rather die than become a vegan”.

I was watching a TV show the other day and I this famous English comedian said something like: “I won’t trade my pizza and booze to live an extra 10 years…”

And I was like: really?

I think these people are really unobservant, or are deluding themselves; because the last time I checked, the vast majority of the population who die in the Western world do not live in perfect health until they are 70, and die in their sleep; although sudden and unexpected heart attacks occur frequently.

Most people live in increasing discomfort, or even agony, during the final decades of their lives, kept uncomfortably alive by medications and machines.

One should ask, is this is a life worth living?

A case in point: look at the life of sporting legend, Diego Maradona, arguably the greatest soccer player of all time and one of the most famous people in the world – who died in 2020 at the young age of 60.

Wouldn’t you think this man would want to be alive today and enjoy the many fruits of his labour; while spending quality time with his children and family?

Unfortunately, his life choices in terms of diet and wellness were not guided by the principles of natural health; he let medical advice do the exact opposite in many cases.

I’m not suggesting that we shouldn’t listen to doctors, but when you need to lose weight, you need to change your diet instead of going through a gastric bypass operation, which is what Maradona did; among many other questionable health decisions he made throughout his life.

Maradona’s health choices sadly mirror what the rest of society is doing.

The truth is, by the late 30s, many people are already suffering from the onset of arthritis among other complications, taking medication for high blood pressure, dealing with addictions, and so on.

In the decades that followed, many develop type 2 diabetes, become overweight or obese, start taking even more medication and, in general, their lives are gradually shortened.

By the time they reach their 50s and 60s, it’s not uncommon for people to be battling cancer; as the flow of blood to their arteries is choked off by fatty plaques accumulated, one meal at a time.

It’s not long before rounds of chemotherapy or incredibly painful heart bypass surgery await, or, in the case of type two diabetics, limb removal and organ failure.

Anyone who has been through the pain of watching a disease-wasted relative battling to stay alive in a hospital knows how true this is.

People do not choose between a healthy life and another decade of life, but often choose a life of increasing discomfort followed by a final few years, or even decades, of horrendous suffering.

It was a blessing for me to discover the science of Natural Hygiene; an obscure health philosophy whose information is often suppressed by big business interests, both medical and industrial.

Before discovering the raw food diet at the age of 37, I had never tasted papayas, mango, durian, custard apple, dragon fruit, persimmon, fresh coconut water, and many other delicious fruits that I now consider some of the best foods around.

One may wonder what caused my change in taste.

Well, just look at babies, they all have one thing in common: they ALL love the taste of fruit!

Unfortunately, as babies grow up and are introduced to processed commercial foods, their original taste is altered by the addictive enhanced flavours of artificial foods and as a result, the youngsters begin to reject fruit, while starting to develop all the normal children’s diseases such as chicken pox, whooping cough, measles, mumps, rubella, rotavirus, flu, hepatitis b, and many more.

In my experience in the raw food scene for over 15 years, children who grow up on raw food diets do not usually suffer from these diseases. It is also highly notable that wild animals do not suffer from these conditions either, because they feed exclusively on raw foods.

To return to your natural taste, you need to counteract all the misinformation you have been indoctrinated with throughout your life and adopt the right natural health habits.

Learning to appreciate the natural flavours of raw foods and moving away from processed foods is one of the smartest decisions any human being can make, not only to regain health; but also to live life to the fullest in every sense of the word.
