Create your own reality
You can change your reality by understanding how our thoughts, emotions and actions are creating our reality each minute, hour of everyday of our lives. We are energetic beings, receiving and sending positive and negative vibrations, each having their own resonance.
Your aura will depend on the positive or negative energy you generate through your thoughts, emotions and actions. Are your intentions loving and helpful or fear and greed?
It is interesting to note that aura is the human energy field that surrounds our entire body, for over a hundred years, adding to the knowledge our ancestors already possessed. This field consists of multiple bands of energy called auric layers or auric fields, that encompass the subtle body, connecting us to the outside world.
More and more studies have confirmed that turmeric can enhance immunity, and that it has anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidative effects. (Shutterstock)
Both Asian and Western literature have found that turmeric has many benefits, including anti-inflammation, prevention of cardiovascular disease, prevention of dementia, prevention of cancer, anti-depression, improvement of skin quality, and the like. Especially during the pandemic, improving one’s immunity has become the main act to fend off COVID. Dr. Dawei Guo, a physician at the Fu Yuan Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic in Taiwan, shared how to enhance immunity by consuming turmeric, and the nine groups of people who need turmeric.
Both turmeric and ginger are medicinal and edible plants. How can we tell the difference between the two? First of all, ginger belongs to the Zingiberaceae family. It is a commonly used condiment in the home. Apart from its favorite usage as a spice, it also removes fishy smells, as well as cold. It is a popular product for warming and nourishing the body. Turmeric is a plant belonging to the genus Curcuma longa of the Zingiberaceae family and is the raw material for curry. Turmeric is a natural antioxidant that helps eliminate free radicals in the body. Eating it in moderation has lots of health benefits.
Ginger has a spicy taste, and according to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), when used as a medicine, it is useful in regulating the three meridians of the lung, spleen, and stomach. Turmeric is also spicy with a slightly bitter taste. It converges to the liver and spleen meridians. It is often prescribed in TCM to activate blood circulation, relieve pain, flush the meridians, and improve internal gas circulation. It is used against symptoms of pain in joints, in the hands, and during menstruation.
TCM discovered that the human body has a “meridian” system that is responsible for transporting “qi” and “blood” throughout the body. These are the basic substances that constitute the human body and maintain its physiological activities. Qi and blood circulate within the body to maintain the balance and stability of various tissues and organs. When there is an imbalance or deficiency of qi and blood in the body, disease or other complications may occur.
There are 12 main meridians in the human body corresponding to the 12 viscera, which circulate further to the hands, feet, head, and face. If any of the meridians are blocked, the movement of substances will be affected, and the “evil qi” or “disease qi” (various factors that cause diseases) will enter, resulting in all sorts of abnormalities in the body. When the meridian system returns to normal, the disease will eventually be cured.
Turmeric Can Boost Immunity and Improve COVID-19 Symptoms
So far, there are nearly 70,000 research reports on turmeric. A study published in a 2017 edition of the journal Foods confirmed that curcumin in turmeric has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Another research paper published in the journal Nutrients in 2019 showed that curcumin has immunomodulatory effects that can help prevent cancer. Both curcuminoids and related turmeric products have been sanctioned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as safe.
From 2021 to 2022, many academic journals published research results on curcumin’s treatment for COVID-19. In clinical studies, it has been found that curcumin can effectively improve symptoms such as fever, cough, dyspnea, and muscle soreness in confirmed mild and severe patients after treatment with it. It can also maintain the patient’s blood oxygen concentration at a better level.
Curcumin treatment in pulmonary fibrosis cases also significantly reduced hospital stays for diagnosed patients. Related studies have also found that patients treated with curcumin had a lower mortality rate than those who did not use it at all. In addition, patients with taste and smell disorders due to a COVID-19 diagnosis also showed significant improvement in symptoms after treatment with turmeric. Therefore, many researchers suggest that curcumin can be included in the adjuvant treatment plan for diagnosed patients.
9 Types of People Best Suited for Turmeric Treatment
More and more studies have confirmed that turmeric can improve immunity and that it has anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidative effects. Guo suggested that the following nine types of people are most in need of taking turmeric.
Students who stay up late to study
Office workers who work overtime and stay up late
People with chronic joint inflammation and pain
Those with high cholesterol, blood pressure, and/or blood sugar
People who dine out often
People who need to recover from a hangover
People who want to increase their metabolism rate
Those who are overweight
People with excessive body fat
6 Groups Who Should Avoid Taking Turmeric
Because turmeric has the effect of promoting blood circulation and stimulating gastric mucosal cells, these six groups of people with the following constitutions or situations are not suited to eating turmeric.
Patients with gastritis, gastric ulcer, and gastric acid reflux
Patients suffering from diseases such as hepatitis, diabetes, gallstones, abnormal biliary function, calcium oxalate stones, and unstable blood pressure
Menstruating women, or people who have undergone surgery
Those with blood coagulation disorders or taking anti-coagulant drugs
People with iron deficiency anemia
Pregnant or breastfeeding women
Guo suggested that if you have one of these conditions, you must consult a doctor for advice, and you should not replace regular treatment with TCM remedies. If you are not sure about your body’s constitution, consult your doctor.
Turmeric has many benefits, but it should not be overused due to its level of cytotoxicity, despite the level being low. According to World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations, curcumin is best used as a food additive, and the daily acceptable intake of curcumin is a maximum of 3 milligrams per kilogram of body weight.
How to Increase Curcumin Absorption
The turmeric powder you see in the supermarket is a product obtained by grinding turmeric into powder and then drying it. However, the real value of turmeric lies in the curcumin extracted from turmeric. In general, turmeric powder only contains about 2 percent to 5 percent curcumin, but is not easily absorbed by the body. Guo suggested the following methods to increase the absorption of curcumin.
Stir-fry with oil to extract its full nutrition. Curcumin and vitamins A, D, E, and K are all fat-soluble, and frying with oil is conducive to the release of nutrients in turmeric.
Mix with milk and honey. Use 500 milliliters (17 fluid ounces) of whole milk as the base, 1.5 teaspoons of turmeric powder, 0.5 teaspoon of cinnamon powder, 0.5 teaspoon of honey (or maple syrup), and a little black pepper, which can help with sleep and relieve stress.
Mix with salt and pepper, ginger, and rice. Combine a little turmeric powder, salt, black pepper granules, a little mushroom powder, and a little soy sauce. Mix all kinds of seasonings with rice, and it’s ready to serve.
Add piperine to increase the absorption of curcumin. Curcumin is fat-soluble and not easily absorbed by the human body. Take it together with fat or piperine to increase the absorption rate. Studies have found that the piperine in black pepper can increase the bioavailability of curcumin by 2,000 percent.
Many studies have pointed out that the final absorption rate of curcumin is quite low. Therefore, Guo suggested that it takes a long time and continuous intake of turmeric to achieve the necessary amount.
Guo emphasized that some people may not fall asleep if they eat turmeric before going to bed. He recommended eating it during the day when the body metabolizes faster.
4 Principles for Choosing Turmeric
How do you choose turmeric powder? Guo recommends the following selection criteria.
Commercially available products include turmeric powder capsules containing only 1 to 5 percent curcumin. You should choose products with more than 90 percent curcumin, and the content of curcumin should be at least 150 milligrams to have real anti-inflammatory and metabolism-promoting effects.
Find out whether there are research data to support its efficacy. There are many turmeric products on the market. Because curcumin doesn’t last long in the body, if you want to enhance its absorption, you should choose products with international labels, patents, safety inspections, international certification, clinical data, and the like, to ensure you’re getting genuine and effaceable curcumin.
Opt for curcumin over turmeric powder.
Since turmeric powder contains only about 2 to 5 percent curcuminoids, it is best to purchase products that contain the active curcumin ingredient.

Moderate intake of saturated fat may not necessarily increase the risk of coronary heart disease. (Pixel-Shot/Shutterstock)
We have been led to believe that consuming saturated fat increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases, but is this really the case? There is another harmful fat hidden in many delicious foods, but it is usually overlooked.
Saturated Fat May Not Be the ‘Culprit’ of High Blood Lipids
Saturated fats from lard and coconut oil are believed to increase cholesterol levels, leading to cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, some guidelines recommend that people cut back on foods that contain saturated fat, such as red meat, cakes, and biscuits.
However, is saturated fat really bad for you?
Before diving into this, we need to understand some basics about cholesterol.
Cholesterol can be divided into high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol or good cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol or bad cholesterol. The particle size of bad cholesterol can vary and can be divided into two types: small dense LDL (sdLDL) and large buoyant LDL (lbLDL).
Small dense LDL is the one that is harmful to the cardiovascular system and is more likely to cause atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.
Small dense LDL is more likely to cause thrombus and atherosclerosis, as it stays in the body longer than large buoyant LDL and is more susceptible to oxidation. In addition, its small particle size makes it easier to penetrate blood vessel walls. The concentration of small dense LDL is a better predictor of cardiovascular disease than the total value of bad cholesterol. According to a study published in Clinical Biochemistry, numerous studies have shown that small dense LDL is strongly associated with raised triglycerides and decreased concentrations of good cholesterol.
While saturated fat intake increases both total and bad cholesterol, it is primarily large buoyant LDL that increases. In addition, a review article in the British Medical Journal pointed out that saturated fat can increase good cholesterol and may also reduce small dense LDL. Therefore, moderate intake of saturated fat may not necessarily increase the risk of coronary heart disease.
Aeris Chen, a nutritionist with a doctorate in food science, said, “In fact, every oily food contains saturated fat, monounsaturated fat, and polyunsaturated fat; the difference is only in quantity.” She pointed out that saturated fat is neither bad nor good—it is just one type of fat found in food.
Vegetable Oils Are Not Necessarily Low in Saturated Fat
There is also a misconception about saturated fat—that is, it mainly exists in animal fats, while the saturated fat content in vegetable oils is relatively low. The truth is that some vegetable oils, such as coconut oil and palm oil, are surprisingly high in saturated fat.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, every 100 grams of coconut oil contains 82.5 grams of saturated fat, 6.31 grams of monounsaturated fat, and only 1.7 grams of polyunsaturated fat. Similarly, every 100 grams of palm oil contains up to 81.5 grams of saturated fat, 11.4 grams of monounsaturated fat, and only 1.6 grams of polyunsaturated fat.
On the other hand, fats from animal sources are not necessarily high in saturated fat. For example, every 100 grams of salted butter (nearly one stick) contains 45.6 grams of saturated fat, 16.9 grams of monounsaturated fat, and 2.52 grams of polyunsaturated fat.
The saturated fat in lard is even lower. For every 100 grams of lard, there are only 39.2 grams of saturated fat, 45.1 grams of monounsaturated fat (which is slightly high), and 11.2 grams of polyunsaturated fat.
Health Benefits of Animal Fats
Some animal fats offer great health benefits. For example, lard has been documented for medicinal use in traditional Chinese medicine.
Yeh Ru-Duan, director of Jiapin Chinese Medicine Clinic in Taiwan, pointed out that lard is sweet and pungent, and slightly cold in nature. It has the effects of tonifying deficiency, nourishing the spleen and stomach, relieving constipation, and moisturizing the skin.
While all fats are “moistening,” different fats have different properties.
Due to the characteristics of lard, we do not have to worry about “heatiness,” inflammation, dry mouth, and other problems after eating it. In the past, people working in the agricultural field had physically demanding jobs and were prone to fat and protein deficiencies, so they tended to eat pork lard mixed with rice, which can provide sufficient fat and nourishment.
In contrast, beef is warm in nature but its fat has the same properties. The nature of mutton is drier and heaty, and its fat is sweet and warm. It is not suitable for people who are prone to dry mouth and tongue. Goose meat can trigger inflammation and skin allergies, so people with skin conditions are advised to avoid foods made with goose fat.
In recent years, people have often thought that animal fats are high in saturated fat and should be eaten less, but lard does not actually have the highest saturated fat content. Yeh pointed out, “Lard itself is not bad; the problem is the quantity.” The problem is that modern diets are full of saturated fat, such as all kinds of pastries, biscuits, fried foods, and desserts. Eating too much of these foods can lead to excess saturated fat, even if we choose not to eat lard.
Modern people consume too many calories and tend to have the three highs (blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugars), so we should pay more attention to the amount of fats consumed. Yeh mentioned that the coconut oil used in the ketogenic diet and bulletproof coffee is very high in saturated fat. She has met many patients with poor metabolism and high blood lipids who did not understand the properties of coconut oil. Yet they drank a cup of bulletproof coffee every day, which can eventually lead to hyperlipidemia.
The Worst Type of Fat: Trans Fats
Fat is one of the three macronutrients in the human diet. Saturated fat, monounsaturated fat, and polyunsaturated fat can all be taken in moderation. However, there is one type of fat we should avoid: trans fat.
Like refined carbohydrates, trans fatty acids (trans fats) will also increase the level of small dense LDL in the body, according to a clinical trial published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
There are two main sources of trans fat in food: naturally occurring trans fat and artificial trans fat.
Naturally Occurring Trans Fat
Products from ruminants (cattle and sheep), such as milk, butter, cheese, and meat, may contain small amounts of naturally occurring trans fat. These trans fats, which are synthesized by the gastrointestinal bacteria of ruminants, generally do not cause adverse health effects.
Artificial Trans Fat
Hydrogen is added to liquid vegetable oil to change its form from liquid to solid, which improves the stability of the oil and makes it more resistant to high temperatures. Such fats are found in some hydrogenated oils, margarine, vegetable shortening, etc.
Trans fat is metabolized very slowly in the human body. Among all fats, trans fat is the most harmful to human health. Regular intake of trans fats can lower good cholesterol and increase small dense LDL, thereby increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease and other health problems. A 2021 review found that consuming 5 grams of trans fat per day increases the risk of cardiovascular disease by 29 percent.
Although many countries have established regulations in recent years to reduce or ban trans fats, this type of fat can still be found in many fried, packaged, or processed foods. They are often “fragrant, flaky, and crispy,” which include fried foods and baked goods (cakes, pie crusts, biscuits), frozen pizza, margarine, and other spreads.
It should be noted that the firmer the plant-based margarine, the more trans fat it contains. According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition trial, semiliquid margarine, soft margarine, and stick margarine contain about 0.6 percent, 9.4 percent, and 26.1 percent trans fat, respectively. If options are available, it is recommended to choose a softer form of plant-based margarine to reduce the trans fats intake.
Another way to avoid trans fats is to look at the ingredient list. Due to the different laws and regulations in various countries, it is more accurate to look at ingredient lists instead of the front of the packaging. For instance, some regulations stipulate that products with less than 0.5 grams of trans fat per serving can be labeled as “zero grams of trans fats.” It is recommended to avoid foods containing words like “hydrogenated,” “partially hydrogenated oil,” and “vegetable shortening.”

If you haven’t realized, we are in the middle of the greatest spiritual awakening the world has ever experienced. The veil is being lifted for all to see. The reason behind this great awakening is to stir human emotions, so that each person can evacuate there own moral compass, regardless of beliefs, culture or religion.
We live in what we could consider the matrix. Within that matrix is a divine force each human can tap into through meditation, prayer, and contemplation. We are here to learn the ways of Love and to love jour neighbor as ourselves, to help others and to get to know this Universal Divine Energy in our own way.
We should to remember that our thoughts, emotions and actions create our reality as well as those around us, in essence we are creating our world. Each of us are here to learn the ways of love with wisdom. Our goal is to be 51% positive not only in this lifetime but all our lifetimes. Once that’s is achieve we graduate this dimension only begin our next journey.
Autoimmune diseases refer to diseases caused by the body’s own immune system attacking the body. (Kateryna Kon/Shutterstock)
The research is hard to ignore, vaccines can trigger autoimmunity with a laundry list of diseases to follow. With harmful and toxic metals as some vaccine ingredients, who is susceptible, and which individuals are more at risk?
No one would accuse Yehuda Shoenfeld of being a quack. The Israeli clinician has spent more than three decades studying the human immune system and is at the pinnacle of his profession. You might say he is more foundation than fringe in his specialty—he wrote the texts.
“The Mosaic of Autoimmunity, Autoantibodies, Diagnostic Criteria in Autoimmune Diseases, Infection, and Autoimmunity, Cancer and Autoimmunity”—is one of a list 25 titles long and some are cornerstones of clinical practice. It’s hardly surprising that Shoenfeld has been called the “Godfather of Autoimmunology”—the study of the immune system turned on itself in a wide array of diseases from type 1 diabetes to ulcerative colitis and multiple sclerosis.
But something strange is happening in the world of immunology lately and a small piece of evidence of it is that the “Godfather of Autoimmunology” is pointing to vaccines—specifically, some of their ingredients including the toxic metal aluminum—as a significant contributor to the growing global epidemic of autoimmune diseases.
The bigger evidence is a huge body of research that’s poured in over the past 15 years, and particularly in the past five years. Take for example, a recent article published in the journal Pharmacological Research in which Shoenfeld and colleagues issue unprecedented guidelines naming four categories of people who are most at risk for vaccine-induced autoimmunity.
“On one hand,” vaccines prevent infections which can trigger autoimmunity, say the paper’s authors, Alessandra Soriano, of the Department of Clinical Medicine and Rheumatology at the Campus Bio-Medico University in Rome, Gideon Nesher, of the Hebrew University Medical School in Jerusalem, and Shoenfeld, founder and head of the Zabludowicz Center of Autoimmune Diseases in the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer.
He is also editor of three medical journals and author of more than 1,500 research papers across the spectrum of medical journalism and founder of the International Congress on Auto-immunology.
“On the other hand, many reports that describe post-vaccination autoimmunity strongly suggest that vaccines can indeed trigger autoimmunity. Defined autoimmune diseases that may occur following vaccinations include arthritis, lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus) diabetes mellitus, thrombocytopenia, vasculitis, dermatomyositis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, and demyelinating disorders. Almost all types of vaccines have been reported to be associated with the onset of ASIA.”
Autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants—or ASIA, (also known as Shoenfeld’s syndrome)—first appeared in the Journal of Autoimmunology four years ago. It is an umbrella term for a collection of similar symptoms, including chronic fatigue syndrome, that result after exposure to an adjuvant—an environmental agent including common vaccine ingredients that stimulate the immune system.
Since then an enormous body of research, using ASIA as a paradigm, has begun to unravel the mystery of how environmental toxins, particularly the metal aluminum used in vaccines, can trigger an immune system chain reaction in susceptible individuals and may lead to overt autoimmune disease.
Autoimmune disease results when the body’s system—meant to attack foreign invaders—turns instead to attack part of the body it belongs to (auto is Greek for self). If the immune system is like a national defense system, antibodies are like drones programmed to recognize a certain type of invader (a bacteria say) and to destroy them or mark them for destruction by other special forces.
Autoantibodies are like drones that are misidentifying a component of the human body and have launched a sustained attack on it. If they mistakenly target a component of the conductive sheath around neurons, for example, nerve impulses stop conducting properly, muscles go into spasms and coordination fails, and multiple sclerosis results. If autoantibodies erroneously focus on joint tissue, rheumatoid arthritis results. If they target the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas, type 1 diabetes, and so on.
“Throughout our lifetime the normal immune system walks a fine line between preserving normal immune reactions and developing autoimmune diseases,” says the paper. “The healthy immune system is tolerant to self-antigens. When self-tolerance is disturbed, dysregulation of the immune system follows, resulting in emergence of an autoimmune disease. Vaccination is one of the conditions that may disturb this homeostasis in susceptible individuals, resulting in autoimmune phenomena and ASIA.”
Who is “susceptible” is the subject of the paper titled, “Predicting post-vaccination autoimmunity: Who might be at risk?” It lists four categories of people: 1) Those who have had a previous autoimmune reaction to a vaccine, 2) Anyone with a medical history of autoimmunity, 3) Patients with a history of allergic reactions, 4) Anyone at high risk of developing autoimmune disease including anyone with a family history of autoimmunity, presence of autoantibodies which are detectable by blood tests and other factors including low vitamin D and smoking.
Regarding those who have had a previous adverse reaction to vaccines, the paper cites five relevant studies including the case of a death of a teenage girl six months following her third Gardasil injection against the HPV virus. She had experienced a range of symptoms shortly after her first dose, including dizziness, numbness, and tingling in her hands, and memory lapses. After her second injection, she developed “intermittent arm weakness, frequent tiredness requiring daytime naps,” worse tingling, night sweats, chest pain, and palpitations.
A full autopsy was unrevealing but blood and spleen tissue analysis revealed HPV-16 L1 gene DNA fragments—matching the DNA found in vials of the Gardasil vaccine against cervical cancer—“thus implicating the vaccine as a causal factor.” The DNA fragments had also been found to be “complexed with the aluminum adjuvant” which, according to the report, have been shown to persist for up to eight to 10 years causing chronic immune system stimulation.
“Although data is limited,” Shoenfeld and his colleagues concluded, “it seems preferable that individuals with prior autoimmune or autoimmune-like reactions to vaccinations, should not be immunized, at least not with the same type of vaccine.”
Established Autoimmune Condition
The second group, which the paper cites for vaccine exemption, is patients with “established autoimmune conditions.” Vaccines don’t work so well in them, say Shoenfeld and his colleagues, and they are at “risk for flares following vaccination.”
Inoculations that contain live viruses including chickenpox, yellow fever, and the measles, mumps, and rubella triple vaccine are “generally contraindicated” for people with autoimmune conditions because of the risk of “uncontrolled viral replication.” But inactivated vaccines are not such a good idea either because they usually contain the added ingredient aluminum, linked to autoimmunity.
The immunologists describe recent studies in which patients with autoimmune rheumatic disease given the influenza vaccine (without aluminum) suffered more joint pain and fever than controls and whose levels of autoantibodies (the drones that attack self) increased after receiving the flu vaccine.
What’s more, they developed new types of autoantibodies that weren’t present before the vaccines—and those persisted. As the presence of autoantibodies can be predictive of developing autoimmune disease in patients without symptoms, even years ahead of disease onset, this is troubling to those who understand immunology.
A number of studies claim vaccines are safe for the “overwhelming majority of patients with established autoimmune diseases,” the study allows, but they only looked at rheumatoid arthritis and lupus and not at severe and active cases so “the potential benefit of vaccination should be weighed against its potential risk,” they cautioned.
Patients With a History of Allergy
Vaccine trials have usually excluded “vulnerable” individuals—only extremely healthy individuals with no allergies are recruited. It’s a “selection bias,” say Soriano and Shoenfeld, and has likely resulted in serious adverse events being “considerably underestimated” in “real life where vaccines are mandated to all individuals regardless of their susceptibility.”
The true incidence of allergic reactions to vaccines, normally estimated at between one in 50,000 to one in a million doses, is probably much higher and particularly where gelatin or egg proteins are on the ingredients list, they say.
There’s a long list of vaccine ingredients that are potential allergens: Besides the infectious agents themselves, there are those from hen’s egg, horse serum, baker’s yeast, numerous antibiotics, formaldehyde, and lactose, as well “inadvertent” ingredients such as latex. People’s allergic histories have to be taken before vaccination say the researchers. But some signs of reaction don’t show up until after the shot.
The public health nurse or general practitioner might tell patients that a long-lasting swelling around the injection site after a vaccine is a normal reaction, for example. But that is not what the immunologists say.
“[A]luminum sensitization manifests as nodules [hard lumps] at the injection site that often regress after weeks or months, but may persist for years.” In such cases, they say, a patch test can be done to confirm sensitivity and to avoid vaccination.
According to a growing body of research, though, allergy may be only the beginning of many dangerous aluminum-induced phenomena.
The Trouble With Aluminum
Aluminum has been added to vaccines since about 1926 when Alexander Glenny and colleagues noticed it would produce better antibody responses in vaccines than the antigen alone. Glenny figured the alum was inducing what he called a “depot effect”—slowing the release of the antigen and heightening the immune response.
For 60 years his theory was accepted dogma. And over the same time, the vaccine schedule grew decade on decade, but few ever questioned the effects of injecting aluminum into the body, which is strange considering its known toxicity.
A PubMed search on aluminum and “toxicity” turns up 4,258 entries. Its neurotoxicity is well documented. It affects memory, cognition, psychomotor control, damages the blood-brain barrier, activates brain inflammation, depresses mitochondrial function—and plenty of research suggests it is a key player in the formation of the amyloid “plaques” and tangles in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. It’s been implicated in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and autism and demonstrated to induce allergy.
When kidney dialysis patients were accidentally infused with aluminum, the “dialysis-induced encephalopathy” they developed neurological symptoms—speech abnormalities, tremors, memory loss, impaired concentration, and behavioral changes. Many of the patients eventually went into comas and died. The lucky ones survived—when the source of toxicity, aluminum, was removed from their dialysis they recovered rapidly.
With these new observations, researchers began investigating the adjuvant effects of aluminum and in the past decade, there has been a flurry of research. Far from being a sandbag that holds the antigen for a while and then gets excreted, it turns out that aluminum salts trigger a storm of defense action.
Within hours of injection of the same aluminum oxy-hydroxide in vaccines into mice, for example, armies of specialized immune cells are on the move, calling in grid coordinates for more specialist assault forces.
Within a day, a whole host of immune system commandos are in play—neutrophils, eosinophils, inflammatory monocytes, myeloid and dendritic cells, activating lymphocytes and secreting proteins called cytokines. The cytokines themselves cause collateral damage but they send out signals, directing cell-to-cell communication and recruiting other cells into action.
If the next phase of the attack is launched—fibroblast growth factor, interferons, interleukins, platelet-derived growth factor, transforming growth factor and tumor necrosis factor might all be engaged. There’s evidence that poorly understood and pesky inflammasomes, (currently a topic of cutting-edge cancer causation research) such as the NOD-like receptor 3 are activated too, but it’s all still too early to say exactly what they’re doing.
New research emerging from the University of British Columbia has found that aluminum adjuvant injected into mice can alter the expression of genes associated with autoimmunity. And in their recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, immunologists at the University of Colorado found that even host DNA is recruited into the aluminum assault, that it rapidly coats injected alum, triggering effects that scientists have barely scratched the surface of understanding.
The Significance of Macrophagic Myofasciitis
This mobility or “translocation” of aluminum in the body is perhaps the most disturbing of the mounting evidence in current aluminum research. In 1998, French researcher Romain Gherardi and his colleagues observed an emerging condition of unknown origin that presented in patients post-vaccination with chronic fatigue-like symptoms including swollen lymph nodes, joint and muscle pain, and exhaustion.
Tissue biopsies of the patient’s deltoid revealed lesions up to 1 cm in diameter and unique from similar lesions of other diseases. They went to the lab for analysis and to Gherardi’s astonishment, they mainly consisted of macrophages—large white blood cells in the immune system whose job is to swallow up foreign invaders in the body. Enclosed in the cellular fluid of these phagocytes were agglomerates of nanocrystals of aluminum.
Gherardi and his colleagues began injecting mice with aluminum to see what happened. Their research published in 2013 revealed that the metal particles were engulfed by macrophages and formed MMF [magnetomotive force]-like granulomas that dispersed—to distant lymph nodes, spleen, liver, and eventually the brain.
“This strongly suggests that long-term adjuvant biopersistence within phagocytic cells is a prerequisite of slow brain translocation and delayed neurotoxicity,” writes Gherardi in his February 2015 review of the relevant research in Frontiers in Neurology.
A more frightening animal study of aluminum is that of Spanish veterinary researcher Lluis Lujan’s study of ovine ASIA. After huge numbers of sheep in Spain died in 2008 in the wake of a compulsory multiple-vaccine campaign against bluetongue in Spain in 2008, Lujan set out to find out what killed them—and he began by inoculating them with aluminum.
His 2013 study found that only 0.5 percent of sheep inoculated with aluminum vaccines showed immediate reactions of lethargy, transient blindness, stupor, prostration, and seizures—“characterized by a severe meningoencephalitis, similar to post-vaccine reactions seen in humans.” Most of them recovered, temporarily, but postmortem exams of the ones who didn’t revealed acute brain inflammation.
The delayed onset “chronic” phase of the disease affected far more of the sheep—50–70 percent of flocks and sometimes virtually 100 percent of animals within a given flock, usually including all of those who had previously recovered.
The reaction was frequently triggered by exposure to cold and began with restlessness and compulsive wool-biting, then progressed to acute redness of the skin, generalized weakness, extreme weight loss, and muscle tremors, and finally, entered the terminal phase where the animals went down on their front quarters, became comatose and died. Post-mortem examinations revealed “severe neuron necrosis” and aluminum in the nerve tissue.
The immune system’s reaction to aluminum “represents a major health challenge,” Gherardi declares in his recent review, and he adds that “attempts to seriously examine safety concerns raised by the bio-persistent character and brain accumulation of alum particles have not been made … A lot must be done to understand how, in certain individuals, alum-containing vaccines may become insidiously unsafe.”
Back to the problem of which “certain individuals” should avoid vaccination to avoid autoimmune disease.
People Prone to Develop Autoimmunity
Soriano and Shoenfeld identify a final category—anyone at risk of developing autoimmune disease. Since a number of them have been shown to have genetic factors that would include anyone with a family history of autoimmune disease. It also includes anyone who has tested positive for autoantibodies which can indicate disease years before symptoms show up. Vaccinations, the doctors say, “may trigger or worsen the disease.”
Smokers too, have an exceptionally high risk of developing an autoimmune disease, says the report. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 18 percent of Americans smoke. That means about 42 million Americans have an elevated risk of developing an autoimmune disease and they’re stacking the odds with every vaccine.
And finally, factors that Shoenfeld and Soriano associate with high risk of developing autoimmunity are high estrogen and low vitamin D—which means anyone taking birth control or hormone replacement therapy and, according to one 2009 study of vitamin D status, about three-quarters of American teens and adults should be wary of vaccines.
Shoenfeld doesn’t seem to mean to exclude all of these people from immunization, however. The paper concludes that “for the overwhelming majority of individuals, vaccines carry no risk of systemic autoimmune disease and should be administered according to current recommendations.” Which is in stark contrast to the body of the paper. The final word is cautionary about weighing the “potential benefit of vaccination … against its potential risk.”
It’s exemplary of a strange sort of schizophrenia in a wide range of recent immunology papers. The doctors seem to be trying to reconcile a century of “safe and effective” vaccine dogma with the last decade’s worth of terrifying research findings. There’s a lot of “on the one hand” and “on the other hand” in them.
The new research seems about to gain the upper hand, however. A 2013 overview of ASIA by six immunologists including Shoenfeld, for example, is a catalog of vaccine side effects from Gardasil deaths, narcolepsy epidemics, infertility, chronic fatigue, dead sheep, and aluminum-addled brains. It is rife with statements that would have been virtually unheard of inside mainstream medicine a decade ago. Like this shocker:
“Perhaps, in twenty years, physicians will be dueling with better-characterized particles of autoimmunity, and the vaccines may become fully safe as well as effective. Nonetheless, the recognition of ASIA has initiated the change to put more efforts in identifying the good, the bad, and the ugly of vaccines and in particular of adjuvants as triggers of autoimmunity.”
Bad and ugly of vaccines? What’s wrong with the adjuvants? That’s not in the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] hand-out.
Or how about this one:
“Despite the huge amount of money invested in studying vaccines, there are few observational studies and virtually no randomized clinical trials documenting the effect on mortality of any of the existing vaccines. One recent paper found an increased hospitalization rate with the increase of the number of vaccine doses and a mortality rate ratio for 5–8 vaccine doses to 1–4 doses of 1.5, indicating a statistically significant increase of deaths associated with higher vaccine doses. Since vaccines are given to millions of infants annually, it is imperative that health authorities have scientific data from synergistic toxicity studies on all combinations of vaccines…”
That could be any anti-vaxxer jabbering on … but it’s not.
But here is the topper:
“The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that vaccines makers are immune from lawsuits charging that the design of the vaccine is defective. Thus there is need for innovative clinical trial design and the vaccines themselves should be redesigned.”
Immunologists including the world’s leading authority on autoimmunity are saying it is time to take vaccines back to the drawing board.
Autoimmune disease is the third leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and is now among the top 10 killers of young American women. The American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association estimates that 50 million Americans suffer from one of 88 autoimmune diseases—from type 1 diabetes to systemic lupus erythematosus—and some research puts the figure at one in five globally. At least 40 more diseases are suspected to be immune-mediated. Most of them are devastating—frequently crippling, expensive to treat, and incurable. And they are increasing at an astonishing pace.
At this stage, it looks like the more the research pours in, the harder it is going to get for pro-vaccine immunologists to keep multiple personality disorder—or complete nervous breakdown—at bay. Ten years of cutting-edge research into aluminum’s effects on the immune system has revealed primarily how wrong they were. And how little they know.
If, after 90 years, doctors finally have begun to seriously examine the mechanism and question the merits of injecting metal toxins into newborn babies, what have they yet to discover? ASIA sounds awful. (Too bad for all the people whose kids suffered through chronic fatigue when it was just a Freudian yearning to sleep with their mother.)
But what if, like Lujan’s sheep, the “negligible” minority that has been paying the price for the good of humanity is actually only the tip of the iceberg? What if some people with no apparent adverse immune reactions still have nanocrystals of aluminum silently depositing in their brains? What if ASIA really includes Alzheimer’s? ALS, autism? ADD? And that’s just the A’s.
Even if immunologists keep wearing their rose-colored glasses, and vaccine ingredients are only responsible for a tiny fraction of the exploding autoimmunity, the “ugly” in vaccines will still get harder and harder to ignore. When everyone on the planet is getting injected, 20 years is a long time for disabled people to stack up while scientists “duel with the characterized particles of autoimmunity.” Time is running out for doctors and researchers who see the “bad and ugly” side of vaccines and their adjuvants to do something about it.

THE PLAN shows the official agenda of the World Health Organization to have ten years of ongoing pandemics, from 2020 to 2030. This is revealed by a WHO virologist, Marion Koopmans. You will also see shocking evidence that the first pandemic was planned and abundantly announced right before it happened. Make sure to watch, and share this everywhere.
As we increase our understanding of the world around us was not as it seems, the same can be said of our true nature. It is all about the healing energy flowing through our body energy centers, then we will be more likely to heal ourselves. As we begin to discover our true selves, we can begin spiritual healing with the realization there is a Source, Universal Intelligence of pure divine energy, that connects us all.
Science may call it a quantum or biofield, described as “a field of energy and information, both putative and subtle, that regulates the homeodynamic function of living organisms and may play a substantial role in understanding and guiding health processes.” Science also tells us that the heart electromagnetic energy field be detected and measured several feet from the body. In eastern cultures, this energy is known as chi or qi, ki, prana, and chakras.
The Abrahamic religions, Christians, Jews and Islam may refer to this quantum or biofield as the Holy Spirit while Taoist refer to it as the Dao or the way. Hindu refer to prana and chakras while the Buddha included prana under a different name, one that is also used in yoga. The words is virya, and it means vitality, or life energy.
Consider all the different labels of this divine energy has been given by science, religion and different cultures the same. When we realize we are co-creators by our thoughts, emotions and actions then the healing process can begin.
It is interesting to note we are all subject to three types of diseases that affect the body, mind and Spirit and all are interrelated. Disease normally occurs during recurring negative thoughts, emotions and actions. We know the Law of Karma, we reap what we sow. The body is affected by bacteria, virus and an array of toxins in our foods and environment. Our bodies suffer from pain that needs physical healing. Our minds are susceptible to infection by fear, worries, anger, greed, selfishness, jealousy just to name of few, which requires mental healing. Our spirit is haunted by the disease of forgetting our true nature which cause man to forget their perfect divine nature and focus on the physical world. Ignorance creates imbalances between body, mind and spirit.
Chakras are the bodies seven energy centers. The healing process begins with clearing blockages in these energy centers and connect to the quantum field. Energy flows with love. When we love others as we love ourselves; love nature; be of service to others and are mindful of our thoughts, emotions and actions, the healing will begin. Prayer, meditation, contemplation and gratitude are part of the healing process.
Jesus message to us was we all have the ability to heal if we believe his message of love and enlightenment and look within ourselves to find the answers. In John 14:12 when Jesus said “Most certainly I tell you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to my Father.
Eastern philosophy and medicine, originating in ancient India and China, have traditionally regarded body structures and the life processes occurring within as inseparable. Their terminology resides halfway between structure and function and identifies certain entities in the human body, representing the flow of life energy and, in some sense, conduits for that flow that do not correspond to anatomical structures recognized by Western science and medicine. More on that subject at https://myhealthinfous.blogspot.com/2023/02/energy-centers-of-body.html
As the veil lifts, we are learning the world around us was and is not what we believed to be. The vaccines and big pharma meds are designed to make us sick not heal us. We are in a spiritual battle and we should realize we are powerful energic beings with the ability to heal ourselves. The first step is to believe and have patience.
10 Herbs That Help Boost Immunity: Current Studies
Our immune system is complex and protects us from infection and disease. Many parts of the body work separately and together to keep us healthy, but stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, and other factors can wear down our natural defenses.
Let’s look at 10 natural and easily obtained herbs that can boost our immunity to help keep us healthy as we push through the last months of winter cold.
Astragalus, also called Huangqi, is a root used in ancient Chinese medicine to strengthen and regulate the immune system. It was given for many conditions, including respiratory infection, hay fever, asthma, and chronic kidney disease.
A systematic review of studies finds that astragalus regulates our immune function, promotes the proliferation of immune cells, stimulates the release of cytokines (which control the growth of immune cells), and influences the secretion of immunoglobulin (antibodies) and conduction of immune signals.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports that astragalus may be safe when used “orally and appropriately,” and doses up to 60 grams daily for up to four months have been used without reported adverse effects. Possible but uncommon side effects include rash, itching, nasal symptoms, or stomach discomfort.
Cinnamon is a powerful antibacterial and antifungal spice that can help our immune system fight off infection. This aromatic spice can also relieve symptoms of autoimmune disorders.
One study finds that cinnamon offers significant relief of rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis symptoms, while findings from another one show cinnamon and its ingredients can be recommended to manage COVID-19 infection.
3. Black Pepper
One of the most common spices and used almost every day in cooking, black pepper has also shown promise against cancer.
A study confirmed that black pepper extract significantly enhances the cytotoxic activity of natural killer (NK) cells, and strongly suggests that it can exert immunomodulatory and antitumor action that can promote the maintenance of a healthy immune system.
Another in vitro study found that the active ingredient in pepper, called piperine, boosts the immune system to slow the replication of breast, prostate, and colon cancer cells, and could induce cancer cell death.
Used as both a spice and food for thousands of years, researchers have found that garlic offers a broad range of health benefits, especially as an immune system booster.
A systematic review of studies finds that garlic appears to enhance immune function by stimulating certain immune cell types, including macrophages, lymphocytes, and natural killer cells.
Another randomized controlled trial looked for evidence that aged garlic extract could boost human immune function against respiratory infection.
While the number of study participants who caught a cold or flu wasn’t significantly different, researchers found that the garlic group reduced cold and flu severity. Participants also experienced a reduction in the number of symptoms, and the number of work or school days missed.
5. Holy Basil
Different from common basil, holy basil is native to India and is a component of Ayurvedic medicine. Research finds holy basil can inhibit the growth of multidrug-resistant bacteria that include Staphylococcus, Enterococcus, and Pseudomonas.
Rosemary contains rosmarinic acid, which has been shown to modulate our immune response to have anti-allergy and decongestant properties. In a study with 29 participants, those given rosmarinic acid had decreased amounts of immune cells in nasal mucus, which reduced nasal congestion.
A review of studies concluded that rosemary has significant antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and neuroprotective properties.
Ashwagandha is a small woody plant native to India and North Africa that is used in Ayurvedic medicine. A clinical trial found that five participants who took 6 milliliters of ashwagandha root extract twice daily for 96 hours showed significant increases in immune cell activity.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial found that ashwagandha extract significantly improved the immune profile of healthy subjects by modulating their innate and adaptive immune systems.
Researchers concluded that ashwagandha could be used to boost the immune system of people at risk for infection and during “widespread infections.”
8. Black Cumin Seeds
Black cumin seeds, also called black caraway, have a long tradition of use for therapeutic purposes.
A study identified compounds in black cumin seeds that can positively affect our immune signaling pathways, showing that this could be used as a dietary supplement to activate our immune responses.
A comprehensive review concluded that through a compound called thymoquinone, black cumin seed promotes immunity and cell survival, acts as an antitoxin, and can lessen the side effects of certain drugs.
9. Black Elderberry
Black elderberry, also called Sambucus nigra, refers to several varieties of the Sambucus tree, which has clusters of white flowers and black or blue-black berries.
A placebo-controlled, double-blind study of 312 plane travelers concluded that those who took elderberry supplements had significantly reduced cold duration and severity compared with passengers given a placebo instead.
A systematic review of studies from 2018 found that black elderberry supplements were effective to treat the symptoms of upper respiratory infection.
Echinacea refers to a group of flowering plants belonging to the daisy family. There are different species, but Echinacea purpurea is the most common.
A review of 16 studies found that echinacea was more effective than a placebo in preventing and treating upper respiratory infections.
Another review that looked at 14 studies found echinacea reduced the odds of catching a cold by almost 60 percent and decreased the symptom duration by nearly one-and-a-half days.
Are Immune-Boosting Herbal Supplements Safe to Use?
It’s important to get herbal supplements from a reputable brand.
“Echinacea and most herbal products are extremely variable,” Dr. Nima Majlesi, director of medical toxicology at Staten Island University Hospital, part of Northwell Health in New York, told The Epoch Times. He added that the labeling of products in health food stores can be incorrect due to a lack of FDA regulation.
People with allergic reactions to the contents of these supplements are the most obvious group that should avoid them.
“The fallacy of ‘it’s natural so it’s safe’ is truly concerning and we need to change the way we think about this,” said Majlesi.
Many drugs are based on natural compounds, and those compounds could have toxicity and potential for adverse effects just like prescription or over-the-counter drugs, he noted.
But overall, “these products are generally very safe, especially if taken for a short duration,” Majlesi said.
Majlesi advises that the best way to use most of these products is:
Discuss whether it is safe with your health care providers, especially if you have medical issues or take medications daily.
If they feel it is safe, and you want to try to improve your symptoms, consider a short course during specific times at recommended doses.
You’ll never guess how many have been killed or seriously injured in just the first year. Yet, the FDA and CDC keep pushing the shots, despite their own trial data showing they have no benefit in terms of reducing your risk of hospitalization or death.
According to a December 2021 survey of 2,840 Americans, between 217,330 and 332,608 people died from the COVID jabs in 2021.
Survey results also show that people who got the jab were more likely to know someone who experienced a health problem from COVID-19 infection, whereas those who knew someone who experienced a health problem after getting the jab were less likely to be jabbed.
Of the respondents, 34 percent knew one or more people who had experienced a significant health problem due to the COVID-19 illness, and 22 percent knew one or more people who had been injured by the shot.
Fifty-one percent of the survey respondents had been jabbed. Of those, 13 percent reported experiencing a “serious” health problem post-jab. Compare that to Pfizer’s six-month safety analysis, which claimed only 1.2 percent of trial participants experienced a serious adverse event.
In December 2022, Rasmussen Reports polled 1,000 Americans. In this poll, 34 percent reported experiencing minor side effects from the jab and seven percent reported major side effects.
That said, the most recent survey1,2—published in the peer-reviewed journal BMC Infectious Diseases—puts the death toll from the COVID jabs somewhere between 217,330 and 332,608 in 2021 alone. As noted by Steve Kirsch:3
“[We’ve] killed at least 217,000 Americans and seriously injured 33 million … in just the first year, and the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] and FDA [U.S. Food and Drug Administration] want to give you more shots … Since deaths from the vaccine were higher in 2022, most experts would estimate the all-cause mortality death toll from the COVID vaccines to be in the range of 500K to 600K.
“So the global cost of life from these vaccines is on the order of 10 to 12 million people … These [data] are consistent with the numbers I’ve been saying for a long time. It’s not a coincidence.”
Survey: Why People Did or Did Not Get the Jab
Now, the slant of this paper is kind of interesting. The primary aim of it was to “identify the factors associated by American citizens with the decision to be vaccinated against COVID-19.”
The author was curious about why 31 percent of the U.S. population had declined the jab or not completed the primary series by November 2022, nearly two years into a massively advertised “vaccination” campaign.
Calculating the proportion of fatal events from the jab was secondary. As explained by the author, Mark Skidmore,4 Ph.D., an economics professor at Michigan State University:5
“A largely unexplored factor is the degree to which serious health problems arising from the COVID-19 illness or the COVID-19 vaccines among family and friends influences the decision to be vaccinated.
“Serious illness due to COVID-19 would make vaccination more likely; the perceived benefits of avoiding COVID-19 through inoculation would be higher.
“On the other hand, observing major health issues following COVID-19 inoculation within one’s social network would heighten the perceived risks of vaccination. Previous studies have not evaluated the degree to which experiences with the disease and vaccine injury influence vaccine status.
“The main aim of this online survey of COVID-19 health experiences is to investigate the degree to which the COVID-19 disease and COVID-19 vaccine adverse events among friends and family, whether perceived or real, influenced inoculation decisions. The second aim of this work is to estimate the total number of COVID-19 vaccine-induced fatalities nationwide from the survey.”
Here’s an excerpt describing the methodology:6
“An online survey of COVID-19 health experiences was conducted. Information was collected regarding reasons for and against COVID-19 inoculations, experiences with COVID-19 illness, and COVID-19 inoculations by survey respondents and their social circles. Logit regression analyses were carried out to identify factors influencing the likelihood of being vaccinated.”
A total of 2,840 people completed the survey between Dec. 18 and Dec. 23, 2021. The mean age was 47, and the gender ratio was 51 percent women, 49 percent men. Just over half, 51 percent, had received one or more COVID jabs.
As Skidmore suspected, results showed that people who got the jab were more likely to know someone who experienced a health problem from COVID-19 infection, whereas those who knew someone who experienced a health problem after getting the jab were less likely to be jabbed.
Of the respondents, 34 percent knew one or more people who had experienced a significant health problem due to the COVID-19 illness, and 22 percent knew one or more people who had been injured by the shot. So, as noted by to the author:7
“Knowing someone who reported serious health issues either from COVID-19 or from COVID-19 vaccination are important factors for the decision to get vaccinated.”
As for the types of side effects experienced by people within the respondents’ social circles, they included (but were not limited to) the “usual suspects,” such as:
Heart and cardiovascular problems.
Severe COVID infection or other respiratory illness.
Feeling generally unwell, weak, fatigued, and out of breath for weeks.
Blood clots and stroke.
Hundreds of Thousands Killed for No Reason
“… the total number of fatalities due to COVID-19 inoculation may be as high as 278,000 (95 percent CI 217,330-332,608) when fatalities that may have occurred regardless of inoculation are removed.”
Were COVID-19 an infection with an extremely high mortality rate, perhaps high rates of death from a vaccine would be acceptable. But COVID-19 has an exceptionally low mortality rate, on par with or lower than influenza, hence the risk associated with the COVID jabs ought to be equally low.
The global cost of life from these vaccines is on the order of 10 to 12 million people.
— Steve Kirsch
As it stands, the risks of the shots are very high, while Pfizer’s own trial data, with more than 40,000 participants, show they offer no benefit in terms of your risk of hospitalization and/or death. The absolute risk reduction is so minute as to be inconsequential.8
High Rates of Side Effects
The death toll from the jabs isn’t the only disturbing part of this paper, though. Skidmore’s findings also suggest side effects from the jab may be more common than previously suspected.
As mentioned, 51 percent of the respondents had been jabbed. Of those, 15 percent reported experiencing a new health problem post-jab and 13 percent deemed it “serious.” Compare that to Pfizer’s six-month safety analysis,9 which claimed only 1.2 percent of trial participants reported a serious adverse event.
Now, as suggested by Kirsch,10 “we need to discount that by a factor of two because people report less severe adverse events as adverse events.” Still, that means serious adverse events from the jab are five times higher than what Pfizer reported.
“This is why the FDA never does after-market surveys on the drugs it approves. Because reality hurts,” Kirsch writes.11 “It is the FDA that should have discovered this before Mark Skidmore. The FDA is asleep at the wheel and they just believe everything the drug companies tell them, hook, line, and sinker. This is a major miss. Why aren’t they doing surveys like this to see if the reality matches the study?”
More Side Effect Rate Comparisons
For additional comparison, here are the findings of several other investigations:
Rasmussen Reports12: In December 2022, Rasmussen Reports polled 1,000 Americans. In this poll—taken one year after Skidmore’s survey—34 percent reported experiencing minor side effects from the jab and seven percent reported major side effects.
CDC’s V-Safe data13: In October 2022, ICAN [Informed Consent Action Network] obtained the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s V-Safe data. This is a voluntary program to monitor adverse vaccine reactions. Of the 10.1 million COVID jab recipients who used the app, 7.7 percent had to seek medical care post-jab.
Kirsch-funded survey14: A June 2022 U.S. survey by the market research company Pollfish found that 16.3 percent of COVID jabbed respondents experienced an injury, and 9.7 percent required medical care.
The graphic below, which visually compares Skidmore’s findings to the findings of the Rasmussen, V-Safe, and Pollfish surveys, was created by InfoGame on Substack.15 As noted by InfoGame:
“Skidmore’s article serves as another sign that the rate of COVID-19 side effects is extremely high and that the COVID-19 vaccines are an unprecedently risky medical product.”
Menstrual Irregularities Are Common Post-Jab
While we’re on the topic of reported side effects, several surveys have also focused on the frequency of abnormal menses in women who got the jab, which could be indicative of reproductive harm. For example:
A British survey published in early December 2021 found 20 percent of women experienced menstrual disturbances following their jab.16
A study published in Science Advances in mid-July 2022 found 66 percent of “fully vaccinated” postmenopausal women experienced abnormal breakthrough bleeding. In total, 42.1 percent reported heavier menstrual flow post-jab (this included women of all ages, as well as transgenders on hormone treatments).17
An Italian peer-reviewed study published in March 2022 found that “50-60 percent of reproductive-age women who received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine reported menstrual cycle irregularities, regardless of the type of administered vaccine.” After the second dose, abnormal menses were reported by 60 percent to 70 percent.18
People in High Places Seek Retraction
Not surprisingly, people in high places are already trying to force a retraction of the paper. A special notice from the editor, dated just two days post-publication, states:
“Readers are alerted that the conclusions of this paper are subject to criticisms that are being considered by editors. Specifically, that the claims are unsubstantiated and that there are questions about the quality of the peer review.”
As noted by Kirsch:19
“They are actively trying to get the paper retracted because it destroys the narrative. I’m certain they will succeed because journals are under intense pressure to censor any anti-narrative paper. The problem is that Mark’s survey was entirely consistent with my surveys.
“If they want to have the paper retracted they need to show us THEIR surveys. But of course, they don’t have any surveys because they are too afraid of the results.
“So they will use hand-waving arguments like “I don’t like the methodology” or some nonsense like that instead of gathering their own data. They will NEVER show us survey data that supports their narrative because it isn’t there.
“That’s why there are no success anecdotes. NOBODY can give me the name of a U.S. geriatric practice where all-cause deaths plummeted after the vaccines rolled out. In every case, they went the wrong way. The narrative is unraveling at an accelerated pace but the medical community is still fighting the truth.”

Nature Is Free Medicine for Many Chronic Diseases, 1 Way Enhances Healing Effects
If you don’t know where to go on vacation, there is no harm in getting in touch with nature. Not only does it relieve stress, but it may also help reduce the need for prescription medications for conditions like high blood pressure and asthma. It’s best to take off your shoes and step on the grass with your bare feet—you may gain some unexpected benefits.
Green Space Is Free Medicine, Can Improve Many Chronic Diseases
Do you like green spaces? The British Medical Journal published a two-year study in Finland that revealed that frequent visits to green spaces such as forests, gardens, parks, and meadows can help people reduce the use of prescription medication for depression, insomnia, high blood pressure, and asthma. These medicines are mainly used to treat common and potentially serious health problems.
The study analyzed about 7,300 people, and the results found that compared with those who visited green spaces less than once a week, those who visited green spaces three to four times a week were 33 percent less likely to use psychotropic medication, 36 percent less likely to use antihypertensive medication, and 26 percent less likely to use asthma medication.
Exposure to natural environments is widely believed to be beneficial for human health, and this study actually provides another piece of evidence. Dr. Gyaltsen Lobsang, a preventive medicine expert and director of Dr. Lobsang Preventive Medicare Clinic, said that he often encourages people to go into the forest; this advice is even included in his “prescription” because nature has so many health benefits to offer.
Plants release a lot of oxygen and produce a lot of bioactive substances during photosynthesis, which helps you resist oxidation and reduce chronic inflammation.
Many people suffer from chronic inflammatory conditions. When the cells in the body do not get enough oxygen, the hypoxic cells will emit “reactive oxygen species,” which can damage cells and organs, resulting in body oxidation and chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation will then lead to weakened immunity, making it difficult for the body to fight against foreign viruses and bacteria.
Hypoxemia (insufficient oxygen in the body) can be caused by environmental, physiological, and pathological factors. Lobsang pointed out that symptoms such as muscle stiffness, poor sleep, and dizziness may indicate a lack of oxygen in the body.
2. Boost immunity and prevent cancer
People can also breathe in phytoncides when they are in green spaces, especially forests. Phytoncides, also known as “exterminators of the plant,” are chemicals that plants release into the air with antimicrobial properties to protect themselves from insects.
A study found that the activity of natural killer (NK) cells in the body increased by about 50 percent after people breathed in phytoncides while walking in nature. These cells can kill tumor cells and virus-infected cells in the body.
Lobsang believes that the air in the forest can help cleanse the lungs. Therefore, he will ask patients, especially lung cancer patients, to get in touch with nature, preferably in areas with forests, at least two to three times a month.
4. Relieve stress, improve mood, and regulate autonomic nervous system
A natural environment filled with plants promotes the relaxation of the body and mind. The director of Lohasiinfra Clinic in Taiwan, Shih-Heng Chang pointed out that there are more sounds in the forest than at the seaside, such as the chirping of insects and birds, and the sound of the wind. These sounds are called white noise, and they can block out real noise, helping to relieve stress, and are more relaxing than total silence.
Studies have also found that forest landscapes can reduce psychological stress and mental fatigue, and induce positive emotions, thereby improving anxiety, depression, and anger. This has preventive and therapeutic effects on depression. At the same time, forest bathing also helps to reduce stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol, thus relieving people’s stress.
Stress is also closely related to autonomic nervous system disorders; forest bathing can increase the activity of the parasympathetic nerves and reduce the activity of the sympathetic nerves, allowing the autonomic nervous system to return to a stable and balanced state. Consequently, sleep quality can also be improved.
5. Lower blood pressure and manage diabetes
Studies have found that the forest environment can effectively lower blood pressure, reduce pulse rate, and improve cardiac-pulmonary and metabolic functions, which can help improve the quality of life of pre-hypertensive or hypertensive patients.
Speculated reasons why forests may reduce blood pressure include the positive effects of phytoncides on the body, and the modulating effect of the forest environment on the autonomic nervous system.
Walking in a forest environment increases adiponectin, which helps lower blood glucose levels in diabetic patients. High levels of adiponectin have been linked to resistance to diabetes, weight loss, and the prevention of atherosclerosis.
5. Manage ADHD and improve concentration
In addition to improving concentration in the general population, natural environments can also enhance attention in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). A walk in the park is sufficient to elevate concentration in children with ADHD.
Lobsang also found in his clinical treatment that the symptoms of 80 to 90 percent of children with ADHD or autism can be gradually improved when the children are exposed to nature.
Lobsang believes that plants are very effective in purifying the air, saying that “plants are the best air purifiers.” He pointed out that many studies have found that simply having a lot of plants (such as sansevieria) indoors can help clean the air.
7. Improve eye health
Looking at a green environment after intense eye use can relax the eyes. Chang explained that green light’s wavelength can relax the eye muscles. The eyes will directly affect the brain, and the discomfort of the eyes will cause pain in the head. Computer vision syndrome refers to the discomfort in the eyes caused by prolonged viewing of the computer, which will extend to the brain, resulting in symptoms such as headache and nausea.
Take off Your Shoes and Perform ‘Earthing’ to Increase Natural Healing Power
When walking into green spaces, it is best to take off your shoes if possible, and step barefoot on grass, dirt, and sand to perform “earthing,” as doing so allows you to receive nature’s medicine—electrons from the Earth’s surface.
Scientist Clint Ober discovered the health benefits of earthing by accident. In his book “Earthing,” co-authored with Dr. Stephen Sinatra and others, it is stated that people live on an electrified planet and live an electrified life—the heart, brain, muscles, nervous system, and immune system are all dynamic electric circuits. The purpose of earthing is to connect the weak current on the surface of the earth with the physiological current of the human botos to restore the body’s electrical balance.
Numerous studies have now documented the many benefits of going barefoot on the ground, including reduced chronic inflammation, pain and stress, improved blood flow, vitality and sleep, enhanced wound healing, and the prevention and treatment of autoimmune diseases.
A case study (pdf) by the International Academy of Clinical Thermography mentioned that an 85-year-old man with severe inflammation and chronic pain woke up stiff and sore every day, and his pain completely disappeared after four weeks of earthing therapy.
To maximize the benefits of performing earthing to the body, going barefoot for as little as 30 or 40 minutes daily can significantly reduce pain and stress.
Lobsang said that the body is the structure of energy, and earthing can not only release bad energy from the body, but also massage the soles of the feet at the same time. There are many acupoints on the soles of the feet, such as the Yong Quan acupoint, which is an excellent acupoint for relieving stress, stabilizing emotions, and improving sleep. Additionally, the stimulation of the sole muscles can promote microcirculation.
Lobstang brings his patients to places with clean grass for earthing. In particular, grass that has been exposed to the sun is best. However, people with wounds on the soles of the feet, especially diabetics, have to be careful; they should avoid earthing when there are wounds on the soles of the feet.
In addition, traditional Chinese medicine believes in the concept of the unity of man and nature, and earthing is in line with the concept. Wu Kuo-pin, superintendent of Taiwan Xinyitang Heart Clinic, said that the ground is a part of the Earth (in the Five Elements); the Earth element is associated with the spleen and stomach, and the spleen and stomach are part of the digestive system in traditional Chinese medicine. People can strengthen their spleen and stomach by performing earthing and absorbing the qi of the Earth element. The immune system will improve as the function of the spleen and stomach improves.
Kuo-pin once heard of a case in which a cancer patient recovered from cancer by walking barefoot in the mountains. He emphasized that the energies of the human body, the Earth, and the universe are inherently interconnected. Stepping on the ground with bare feet can adjust the energy of the body, which is beneficial to overall well-being.
Just days after receiving her covid booster jab, the daughter of the king of Thailand collapsed and fell into a coma.
Princess Bajrakitiyabha, who is the potential heir to the Thai throne, is in a grave condition weeks after she collapsed.

Martial Arts Instructor Shares Experience Reversing Stage 3 Colon Cancer With Intermittent Fasting
About four months after being diagnosed with stage 3 colorectal cancer, Fred Evrard was told by his smiling doctor: “Mr. Evrard, you are cancer free.” A lot had happened in just four months.
Stage 3 Colon Cancer Hit When His Body Was at Its Peak
On Sept. 10, 2020, Fred Evrard, aged 48, experienced a devastating blow in his life—he was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer, and the tumor in his body reached 10 centimeters in length.
The news came as a real surprise to Evrard, a strong athletic martial arts instructor.
Evrard has been practicing martial arts since he was a child. Over the past few decades, he has been active in various fitness activities such as boxing, parkour, tai chi, qigong, and meditation, in addition to teaching martial arts classes. His body was in prime shape when he was diagnosed, weighing 70 kg (154 lbs) with only nine percent body fat.
His lifestyle and diet were also extremely healthy in the eyes of ordinary people. Evrard has been a vegetarian for many years—he only eats natural and organic food and never consumes junk food. In addition, he rotates various diet plans all year round, such as ketogenic diet, intermittent fasting, paleo diet, etc. He does not smoke or drink and lives a disciplined life. He goes to bed between nine and ten at night and wakes up between five and six in the morning.
However, Evrard inherited the colon cancer gene, and both his father and grandfather died of colon cancer. He once thought that his lifestyle was so healthy that he could fight against the influence of unfavorable genetics.
Nevertheless, it was not all for nothing. Evrard’s healthy lifestyle and eating habits have indeed supported his body. In his book “How My Immune System Beat Cancer,” he wrote, “doctors told me that without my clean and organic diet of the past 20 years and my strong athletic body, I would probably have been dead already. My lifestyle stopped the cancer from spreading.”
Evrard believes that “stress was probably the trigger” for the cancer outbreak despite having an extremely healthy lifestyle and diet. Evrard traveled all year round to teach martial arts and attend events around the world and the process of obtaining a green card in the U.S. is long, difficult, and expensive. Also, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of his international martial arts schools had to cease operation, and various other of his businesses were also suspended, resulting in a sudden loss of income.
With so much weighing on his shoulders, his body eventually collapsed.
Evrard was overwhelmed by the fact that his colorectal cancer had reached stage 3. He said he was “frozen” and lay dead in bed for three days without eating or drinking. At the same time, his pain was “multiplied a hundredfold” by the tumor that was oppressing the nerve and the tremendous psychological pressure brought about by the diagnosis. He said that on a scale of zero to 10, the constant pain he experienced was at 9.9.
Fight Plan: Fasting and Ketogenic Diet
Three days later, Evrard, who was born a fighter, chose to get back on his feet, and set three beliefs for himself:
First, I’m going to survive this.
Second, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
Third, let food be thy medicine. (Hippocrates)
He eagerly searched and read everything he could find about cancer, natural treatments, fasting, and various diets and found that there are numerous cases of successful reversal and treatment of cancer through fasting.
After reading the materials, Evrard began to discover and agree with the theory that cancer is a metabolic disease and decided to treat his cancer with fasting. The theory suggests that when mitochondria in the cells are damaged and switch to an anaerobic metabolic mode it eventually leads to cancer. In other words, carcinogenesis is the result of damaged mitochondria, not the cause of cancer. Cancer cells do not need to break down oxygen for respiration—they survive and grow uncontrollably by anaerobically breaking down glucose and glutamine (an amino acid). Correspondingly, fasting can cut off the food of cancer cells, and they will starve to death without glucose and glutamine.
In addition, Evrard learned that the body will start a cleansing and autophagy process during fasting, which can maximize the removal of toxic and harmful substances from the body.
In an exclusive interview with The Epoch Times, Evrard said that when he learned that cancer is a metabolic disease, he also realized that it is a disease mainly caused by lifestyle and toxins. Therefore, his first thought was to “reduce toxins in the body and try to remove them.”
However, the more he looked into it, the more he realized that “there is a huge gap between scientific and biological research and the field of medicine.”
When he consulted with his oncologists about the possibility of using fasting and the ketogenic diet to treat cancer, the doctors were either unconvinced or unwilling to discuss them. Instead, they told him that he needed immediate treatment by conventional means: 24 sessions of chemotherapy treatment, followed by several months of radiation therapy, and the final step of surgery. The end of his colon would be removed along with his anus, and he would not be able to control his bowel movements and would have a bag hanging outside his body for the rest of his life. Evrard did not want to accept such treatment.
The decision to fight cancer with fasting put Evrard under tremendous pressure because most cancer patients tend to accept the traditional cancer treatment methods provided by the hospital. His emotions often fluctuated during this process, but he stuck to his decision.
So, Evrard embarked on a 21-day fast, during which he drank only plain water and some wheatgrass juice once a week. His strong desire to survive kept him going.
A miracle was shown on the MRI image after 21 days of fasting—the length of the tumor on his colon shrank from 10 cm to 6 cm, and its diameter also shrank significantly. That’s when Evrard knew he was “on the right path.”
After the fast, he adopted a ketogenic diet, or more precisely, a carnivore diet. This was because he couldn’t eat anything with fiber due to severe intestinal inflammation. In addition, any food with processed ingredients also caused pain in his body—he couldn’t even eat chicken or pork. He found that the only food he could eat without feeling miserable was 100 percent grass-fed beef. Rib-eye steak, in particular, had the perfect balance of protein and fat for him.
During that period, he adopted intermittent fasting and ate only one meal a day. Just like that, he ate rib-eye steaks for months on end. Recognizing the nutritional benefits of vegetables, he later added cold-pressed vegetable juices that had been stripped of fiber to his diet.
Fasting Combined With Chemotherapy Was Miraculous
The pain caused by the cancer tumor continued to be unbearable for Evrard, and none of the pain relief methods worked. It was so painful that he curled up on the ground and cried, even hitting his head against the wall. In the end, Evrard decided to follow his doctor’s advice and undergo a six-session chemotherapy regimen.
Evrard had read some research and data on how fasting could ease chemotherapy. Therefore, he decided to fast the day before and after each chemotherapy session, and three days during the session, that is, a total of five days. The results were excellent, and he experienced minimal chemotherapy side effects such as nausea and fatigue.
During the second chemotherapy session, Evrard did not fast completely. He tried to eat some food the day before chemotherapy, and he fell ill immediately during the session. He was so ill that he vomited repeatedly and even developed a bowel obstruction. He said in his book that “he was sick like a dog.”
Evrard then fasted again for his third chemotherapy session. This time, he completed the session without experiencing any side effects: no hair loss, nausea, vomiting, headache, or dizziness. The immune indicators in his blood were also normal, which surprised the nurses.
Studies found that intermittent fasting can be helpful for people who are undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
After his three chemo sessions, he continued to implement the ketogenic diet, and gradually added physical training, such as tai chi, boxing, and high-intensity interval training(HIIT), in December of the same year.
During the holiday week of Christmas and New Year in 2020, Evrard’s mother visited and his body no longer felt bad, so he resumed his normal diet for a week, eating all kinds of desserts and delicious food.
Beginning again on Jan. 2, he embarked on a second round of fasting as he was worried about his upcoming MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) examination. However, this time he did not fast for 21 consecutive days like in the first round. Instead, he completed the second round of fasting with a five-day fast and a two-day ketogenic diet on weekends. Furthermore, his weekend ketogenic diet consisted of only one meal.
On Jan. 10, 2021, he underwent another MRI and blood test, leading to back the opening of this article—the doctor announced that he was officially cancer-free, and the cancer cells in his body disappeared.
Combining Multiple Approaches
In addition to starving cancer cells to death with fasting and a ketogenic diet, Evrard, as a martial arts practitioner who understands the essence of fighting, adopted multiple approaches at the same time to fight cancer. Apart from these anti-cancer approaches, it was his strong willpower and positive beliefs that kept him going.
As Evrard regained his strength, he began exercising to boost his immunity against cancer. For the first two months after his diagnosis, he was too weak to perform any exercise. Two months later, he began to practice tai chi for 10 minutes a day to slowly recover his strength. He also pointed out in his book that tai chi as a fitness exercise is very suitable for cancer patients due to its simple and slow movements. Since then, he got back to high-intensity training, such as boxing and HIIT. On top of that, he insisted on exercising on an empty stomach to maximize the effectiveness of the body’s cleansing and autophagy mode.
Evrard values the benefits of meditation for the mind and body and read a lot of sources pointing to the positive effect of meditation on fighting cancer. He stresses that meditation has no risks or side effects, and has helped him boost his energy, and reduce stress and fear—factors that often hasten death in cancer patients. Meditation has many other benefits, such as relieving chronic pain, improving sleep quality, reducing fatigue, and improving cognitive function.
Evrard also jumped on a mini-trampoline to help the lymphatic system flush out toxins from the body. Unlike the heart, which pumps blood around the body, the lymphatic system relies entirely on the movement of muscles and joints to complete circulation. Jumping on the trampoline can help the lymph flow back to the lymph nodes, thereby successfully completing the filtration and detoxification, and boosting the body’s immunity. Trampoline exercise brings ample oxygen to the body, thus changing the hypoxic environment preferred by cancer cells. At the same time, trampoline exercise can also increase the number and activity of white blood cells in the blood, which can help eliminate cancer cells.
In addition, Evrard also used therapeutic hypothermia to mobilize the body’s immune function to fight cancer. He exposes his body to low temperatures for a short period of time by taking cold water baths and waterfall baths, meditating in the snow, walking his dog wearing minimal clothes in cold weather, etc. He has also read in the literature reviews that therapeutic hypothermia can help cancer patients reduce inflammation in the body.
In addition to these physical activities and practices, Evrard is also focused on healing his mind. He sees a psychologist regularly and keeps strengthening his positive belief. In his daily meditation, he uses the prayer: “I am thankful for my full and final healing. I am healed and healthy.” “Faith is an essential part of my journey,” he wrote in his book. He also strives to practice the law of attraction in his spiritual journey. The law of attraction believes that positive or negative thoughts can lead to positive or negative experiences in one’s life.
Last but not least, there is also love from relatives and friends that supported Evrard along the way. He said that his wife, mother, close friends, and even his dog have brought him endless warmth and comfort, and they are the most important support in his healing process.
A Typical Day for Evrard in His Battle With Cancer
Evrard shared his typical daily schedule and various recipes he used while fighting cancer in his book “How My Immune System Beat Cancer.” Here are a few:
06:00: Wake up and stay on intermittent fasting until 14:00.
About 20 minutes of cold exposure training.
07:00: Meditation, deep breathing, tai chi.
09:00: HITT training three or four times a week, three minutes of mini trampoline exercise every day.
10:00: Cold exposure training—waterfall bath three times a week. Cold shower for the rest of the week.
See psychologist once a week.
Full body massage every two weeks.
12:00: Physical training (45 minutes each session, four times a week).
14:00: Drink vegetable juices and take supplements (Vitamin D3, vitamin C, curcumin, zinc, and fish oil)
15:00: Drink a cup of wheatgrass juice with matcha.
16:00: Ketogenic meal (typically fried rib-eye steak with olive oil and garlic), and take supplements (Vitamin D3, vitamin C, curcumin, digestive enzymes, etc.)
16:30: Drink matcha and take melatonin.
Start intermittent fasting until 14:00 the next day.
21:30: Go to bed.
As Evrard’s family physician, Dr. Charles Gibert was actively involved in his treatment. Having witnessed the whole story, he wrote the foreword to “How My Immune System Beat Cancer.”
“We live in a time of ‘one problem, one pill’ and Fred’s adventure is an incredible testimony that things could be different. We need to truly understand what cancer is telling us. Those people begin to dream that what has been tied up in a tumor can be untied with a natural cure. And they are right! One of those people is my friend, Fred Evrard, and he did it.”
