Boost Your Immunity: Why Self-Care is More Important than Ever

By Lily Miller

While looking after our health and mental well-being is always beneficial, it’s more important than ever during these demanding times. Stress, anxiety, an unhealthy diet, and a sedentary lifestyle can all suppress our immune system, leaving us weaker and more susceptible to diseases. However, taking proper care of ourselves while dealing with the spread of coronavirus can not only boost our immune system and help us fight infections, but it can also lead to a happier and more satisfying life. So, here are some ways you can practice self-care for optimal health:

Lowering stress and anxiety levels

As a society, we tend to experience stress every day of our hectic modern lives, and it seems like the past several months have only made it easier to feel stressed while watching the news, or even experience anxiety when thinking about our future, due to the novel COVID-19 pandemic. However, stress is not only detrimental to our neurological and cardiovascular health, but it can also weaken our immune system.

Once the level of the stress hormone cortisol rises, it can negatively impact our body’s ability to produce white blood cells, weakening our natural defense system, and leaving us more susceptible to viral infections. What’s more, the effects of stress tend to accumulate, often leading to more serious health problems over time. That is why it’s vital to avoid panicking during this demanding period and try practicing certain relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing, meditation, mindfulness, and positive thinking, in order to lower our stress levels.

Consuming a healthy and balanced diet

In order to work optimally, your immune system requires sufficient fuel in the form of sustenance. It is recommended to follow a healthy and balanced diet that incorporates plenty of colorful fruit and vegetables, to ensure your body is getting enough important vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin D and zinc, which can be found in leafy green vegetables, berries, as well as nuts and seeds.

As supporting the good bacteria that live in your body by promoting good gut health can also help you fight viruses and bad bacteria, it might also be a good idea to incorporate yogurts, fermented foods, ginger, garlic, and onion into your diet as well. It goes without saying that alcohol consumption, smoking and vaping should be avoided at all times, but especially during this stressful period, as they can negatively impact your health, leaving you more vulnerable to viruses.

Incorporating beneficial supplements

If you want to boost your immune system even further, a good idea would be to incorporate a potent combination of vitamins, minerals, and other valuable nutrients into your daily diet. For instance, you can turn to functional medicine, and opt for a bundle of beneficial supplements containing everything from zinc and vitamin C to essential amino acids, all of which will ensure optimal health.

In case you aren’t familiar with functional medicine, it’s a practice that focuses on restoring health and wellness by focusing on the needs of each individual. Basing a solution on your genetics, health, and lifestyle factors, functional medicine aims to find the best combination of treatments and supplements for your particular issues, helping you to maintain excellent, long-lasting health.

Opting for a moderate exercise routine

Apart from helping us stay fit, lowering blood pressure, and promoting good heart health, regular exercise can also offer us proper protection against illnesses. While improving the blood circulation in our body, it allows our immune system to do its job more quickly and efficiently.

So, if you want to stay healthy and strong, it might be a good idea to incorporate exercise into your daily routine. Whether you go on a jog around your neighborhood or even the garden, or you simply decide to do some cardio or HIIIT exercises at home, a moderate workout routine, combined with proper nutrition, is the key to staying fit and healthy.

Getting a good night’s sleep

Quality, uninterrupted sleep is essential for our overall health and well-being, as it’s a time when both our mind and body recover, restore, and reenergize. What’s more, if we don’t get the recommended 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night, our immunity might suffer, and we might be more susceptible to bacteria and viruses.

However, during these challenging times when we are forced to spend our days in the same environment, we have a tendency to be switched on all the time, which ultimately leads to light and poor sleep. That is why it might be a good idea to switch off all electronics at least one hour before going to bed, or even practice helpful relaxation techniques, in order to fall asleep more easily, and ensure a good night’s rest.

While self-isolation can take a toll on both our physical and mental health, taking proper care of ourselves with these essential practices will help us become stronger, happier, and more resilient, allowing us to power through these challenging times with ease.




Promising Research Shows That Some Cannabis Strains May Help Protect Against COVID-19

By Phillip Schneider | Waking Times

Certain cannabis strains may have the potential to protect the body against Covid-19 infection, as revealed by researchers at the University of Lethbridge earlier this month.

After studying over 400 marijuana strains, the Canadian researchers found around a dozen of which show promise in protecting users from becoming infected with the coronavirus, a discovery that will surely cause cannabis users to rejoice.

The treatment works by limiting the number of virus receptors in which Covid-19 attaches to, such as those in the lungs, intestines, and mouth. “If they can reduce the number of receptors, there’s much less chance of getting infected,” said lead researcher Dr. Igor Kovalchuk.

“[As] a number of them have reduced the number of these (virus) receptors by 73 per cent, the chance of it getting in is much lower.” – Dr. Kovalchuk, Biological Scientist

Scientists still have not found a proper balance between tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) content when used for this purpose, but they generally favor CBD, in part because of its anti-inflammatory properties.

“It will take a long time to find what the active ingredient is — there may be many … [but] we focus more on the higher CBD because people can take higher doses and not be impaired.” – Dr. Kovalchuk

Cannabis-based products may soon be used in conjunction with other promising therapies like Intravenous Vitamin C and Hydroxychloroquine for treating and preventing coronavirus.

Referring to cannabis, Kovalchuk states, “it would be cheaper for people and have a lot fewer side-effects,” says Kovalchuk, but there haven’t yet been any clinical trials, only research into the effect of cannabis compounds on ‘artificial human 3D tissue models,’ which sets up a significant hurdle for the research.

However, scientists in Israel have also started clinical trials to research the potential impact that CBD has on repairing Covid-19 damaged cells. “Our work could have a huge influence — there aren’t many drugs that have the potential of reducing infection by 70 to 80 percent,” said Dr. Kovalchuk.

“Researchers were able to identify 13 CBD extracts that are able to change ACE2 levels, an enzyme previously linked to COVID-19 infection. The data also suggested that some strains were also able to control serine protease TMPRSS2, which is another protein necessary for COVID-19 to enter host cells and spread throughout the body.” ~The Source

Considering the current global situation of authoritarian lockdowns and uncertainty surrounding a potential vaccine, it is imperative that we look at alternative treatments and preventative measures to the virus that doesn’t cause dangerous side effects or result in the loss of liberty.

If their research is successful, it could lead to a cheap and effective therapy for the novel virus in the form of cannabis gel caps, sprays, and mouth wash. According to Kovalchuk, “the extracts of our most successful and novel high CBD C sativa lines, pending further investigation, may become a useful and safe addition to the treatment of COVID-19 as an adjunct therapy.”

Are Copper-Infused Face Masks Effective?

Face masks are now a way of life. The current Covid-19 pandemic has made face masks an essential part of everyday wear as they reduce infection by covering the nose and mouth. Not only are face masks essential, but they also protect the environment by preventing microbial droplets from lingering in the air. Face masks are now available everywhere and in different materials which differ in longevity, permeability and size.

Copper-infused masks in particular, are gaining much popularity being the most preferred by individuals, with the Kn99 mask taking the lead. Why the fascination in copper face masks?

Scientific evidence

According to scientists, copper-infused masks are antibacterial and protect against microbes in the vapor which carry the virus. The benefits of copper as an agent for killing infections have been dated back through centuries. Studies and reports over the years show that the use of copper face masks have always concluded no bacterial infections being found on the masks after exposure to different types of influenza viruses.

The copper oxide is infused into textiles by installing a copper mesh underneath the fabric, automatically granting the face mask potent biocidal properties. This in turn bestows it with anti-viral and anti-fungal properties, as the copper ions abruptly destroy the molecular structure of the virus which often causes mutation.

Dr.Gabbay, a textile scientist at Argaman, suggests solutions combating healthcare-related infections in the hospitals through embracing copper-infused textiles in the hospitals. This prevents patient infection through hospital beddings and other fabrics that might be infected. Copper-infused masks are incredibly beneficial to an individual, and instantly destroy the Coronavirus and any other bacteria within minutes.

Microbiologist Phyllis Kuhn states that the copper masks allow for the insertion of small deposits of copper into the nasal area, which acts immediately in inciting an anti-inflammatory reaction and averts further spread of the Covid-19.

Copper, also known for its longevity and durability, is the surest option in the fight against Covid-19. As the cidal properties in the textile last a lifetime, the face mask will always benefit the wearer up to one year.

“Installing only 10% of copper on surfaces will prevent daily infections and save thousands of people in a single day,” says a microbiological researcher in the U.K. This highlights the strong and beneficial properties of copper in the health and science field.

The cost of copper-infused masks varies depending on the source, with most masks retailing from around $10 to $70. These face masks cost a bit more than regular cloth and surgical masks.

Companies like Turmerry.com  sell standard copper masks around $10.95. Other companies such as Myant C-200, Copper Compression, and Atoms are among a few companies that offer a variety of copper masks for the daily user.

Tips to consider

Despite the numerous benefits of copper face masks, there are some tips you should consider when purchasing such a mask:

  • Number of layers

The CDC recommends that face masks have multiple hydrophobic layers of covering, and for copper face masks, the standards remain the same. This helps in providing adequate protection for the wearer thus triple protection, as the copper layer is the first external layer. Most premium copper face masks in the market have a minimum of four layers which block 99% of particles; however the two-layered and three-layered copper masks also reduce droplet transmission as opposed to a single layer.

  • Size of the pores

The size of pores in face masks considers breathability depending on the fabric used. For instance, least porous materials will complicate breathing and more porous ones may not be adequately sufficient for preventing the virus.

  • Material

The type of material used whether fully cotton fibers or a mix of cotton and polyester is considered when it comes to how much they protect against virus infiltration. This is all dependent on an individual’s allergies to the type of material used.

Care and maintenance

The copper face masks are different from the other fabric masks and should, therefore, be handled carefully by:

  • Weekly washing: As the virus does not last for more than a few minutes on the copper mask, washing it once a week is sufficient enough. Copper masks are also self-sanitizing.
  • Use plain distilled water: Distilled water slightly above room temperature is sufficient to remove dust or grime from the mask.
  • Leave the mask in water for 10 – 15 minutes: This gives the mask adequate time to soak.

Unlike the surgical mask, the copper mask is washable, reusable, and filters 99% of germs. Proper maintenance and care are vital to ensure the face mask lasts for a considerable amount of time. Copper-infused masks are recommended to frontline health workers as well as the general population.

Top 10 Commonsense Reasons NOT to Get Vaccinated, Ever, with Any New Shots, Including for Coronavirus

By S. D. Wells | * The Health Ranger

If your brain isn’t already bogged and fogged by fluoridated water, mercury-laced flu shots, and clogged up with mind-numbing canola oil, then you may be able to think this one through before it’s too late for you to. Today’s vaccines are corrupted, untested and dangerous, and the vaccine industry is paying out billions of dollars to keep it all on the hush, hush.

You will never, ever see a case of the injured family on television or in any newspaper, talking about the nightmare of vaccine side effects, including autism, paralysis, coma and death. Here are the top 10 common sense reasons not to get vaccinated with anything, ever.

The real horror stories of today’s vaccines and the top 10 reasons to avoid them

There are lots of reasons to avoid the Franken-science of vaccines, namely:

  1. Most vaccines, including any COVID-19 one they may come out with in the next 18 months, are rushed to market with no safety trials and no proof of efficacy from independent labs. Only the vaccine manufacturer is allowed to “test” it so they can skew results to whatever end justifies their “success.”
  2. Nearly all vaccines carry more risk than benefit, because they contain highly dangerous adjuvants, toxic emulsifiers, deadly preservatives, and genetically modified live viruses and bacteria from other animals, including humans (abortions).
  3. The COVID-19 virus has already mutated and morphed, and continues to do so, so even if a vaccine is created soon, it will be obsolete and useless, besides being dangerously rushed to market. It’s completely unpredictable, and the truth is that the scientists know that.
  4. The secretive vaccine “court” has settled with injured families for over $4 billion dollars (that’s 4,000 million folks) for vaccines, mostly influenza jabs, that routinely and permanently maim, deform and kill babies, children, adults, and senior citizens alike. These real-life horror story cases, settlements and claims are NEVER published by mainstream media.
  5. Autism rates have skyrocketed over the past two decades, and the former, senior lead scientist of the CDC, Dr. William Thompson, blew the whistle himself and confessed that the MMR vaccine causes autism, especially in black boys under the age of three. Think about that one for a minute.
  6. Most vaccines contain random infected cells from other animals, including from human abortions, dogs, eagles, pigs, cows and monkeys.
  7. Most vaccines contain aluminum, which catapults the harmful effects of toxic heavy metals, like mercury, making them more likely to cross your blood/brain barrier, causing brain damage and central nervous system disorders (the vaccine industry notoriously calls this “triggering immune response” but it’s very dangerous).
  8. For the first two weeks after getting a vaccine that contains a live virus, it is highly likely that you shed that disease and give it to those around you, so herd immunity is useless here and this is when the vaccine industry always unjustly blames those who don’t vaccinate. It’s called shedding (a.k.a. vaccine induced disease) and it’s scientifically proven to happen.
  9. New vaccines are expected to contain micro-chips (instead of serial numbers tattooed on your forearm) that embed under your skin to be used as tracers and trackers, and the ingredients to be released by Bill Gates’ computer software. What could possibly go wrong? Infertility drugs, SSRIs, and high doses of mercury are just a few examples of secret ingredients you might discover too late.
  10. With 5G networks bombarding humans with dirty electricity, pesticide-laden food being produced at an all-time high (think GMO and Roundup Ready crops), and with everybody suffering from lockdown syndrome (lowered immunity), any vaccine injections (cocktails of chemicals and live, unpredictable virus combinations) are just deadly accidents waiting to happen. Good luck with all of that.

If you don’t want to be vaccinated with Bill Gates’ untested, unsafe, micro-chipped COVID-19 vaccine, then you are branded “anti-science!”

The lead vaccine industry shill at the New York (Crimes) Times, Kevin “Health Noose” Roose, is strongly pushing for a coronavirus vaccine, without a shred of proof that any such vaccine is either safe or effective. Intelligent Americans who say no to being injected regularly with mercury, aluminum and live, attenuated viruses are not anti-science, or even anti-vax — they’re just anti-stupidity.

No person in their right mind thinks it’s smart to get injected with dirty vaccines just because the news cycle is blanketing the country with fear-mongering headlines every hour of the day. Many people who don’t get vaccines are pro-vaccine and are very science-based folks, but know that the industry is actually the most corrupt industry on Earth right now, with no regard to safety and that cannot be sued in court.

What Is A Pulse Oximeter and Why Is It Important

If your oxygen level falls below a normal, healthy range, your lungs begin to narrow. That puts a significant pressure on your heart, since it needs to work much harder with the aim of getting blood to your lungs and oxygenating the body. Sounds scary, doesn’t it? And that’s only one of the complications that arise due to an abnormal level of oxygen in your body.

There is a simple, but highly important, piece of medical equipment designed to help you measure this level and make sure that it falls within a healthy range. It is called a pulse oximeter and it is a necessary device in all hospitals and even some households. Don’t let the appearance of this device fool you. It is small, but rather practical, and the work it does, which you can see here, is of high importance for people’s health.

What Is It And How Does It Work?

If you are a healthcare worker, you have a pretty good idea of what this device is and how it works. As a patient, on the other hand, you must have come across pulse oximeters during your stay in the hospital. These are the small machines that nurses or doctors usually clip to patients’ fingers. Does it ring a bell now?

They are commonly found in emergency and operating rooms, ambulances, and generally all around hospitals. And, while you might suspect how important this piece of equipment is, you are probably not aware of how it functions and what purpose it actually has. Tell me something – have you ever wondered what these are used for?

Simply put, these tools determine how much of the hemoglobin in your blood is actually carrying oxygen. In other words, they measure oxygen saturation. However, if you are not from the healthcare industry, this could be difficult to comprehend. But, don’t worry; in order to help you understand how this device works, I’ll give you a quick explanation of saturation.

If you want details, go here: https://www.verywellhealth.com/oxygen-saturation-914796

What Is Oxygen Saturation?

As you might already know, hemoglobin is in charge of binding with oxygen and carrying it through your bloodstream to the cells, tissues, and organs in your body. Usually called O2 sats, saturation checks just how much hemoglobin is actually saturated with oxygen. Now, you are probably wondering what normal results would look like.

Saturation above 92% is typically considered perfectly normal and healthy. However, it’s best to consult your doctor to explain the normal range, since it might depend on your general state of health and certain medical conditions that you might have. However, we can safely say that anything below 90% is not a good sign.

If it goes below 90%, that means you are experiencing hypoxemia, which is basically a word for a “low blood oxygen level”. So, don’t get confused if you hear your doctors use it. Hypoxemia can cause symptoms such as an increased heart rate, headaches, fatigue or restlessness, as well as anxiety. On the other hand, hypoxemia can be caused by many underlying conditions, including pneumonia and asthma.

Why Is The Pulse Oximeter Important?

After the above explanations, I hope we are clear on what’s a pulse oximeter do and how it functions. I have mentioned that it measures saturation levels, which helps you determine whether your body is receiving enough oxygen. But, there’s still one significant question left to answer. Why is this device so vital?

Pulse oximeters are able to discover even the slightest change in O2 sats. Even if it has fallen by only 1%, this device is there to spot it. And, 1% might seem insignificant to you, but it is actually a rather big deal in this case. Spotting it allows doctor to discover signs of hypoxia in its early stages, which wasn’t always possible.

In fact, before the introduction of this tool, hypoxia could only be spotted when the patient would become cyanosed. Or, in simple words, when they skin would start turning blue. That is a sign that saturation is already at a dangerously low level. Nowadays, though, hypoxia can be identified much earlier and many individuals are choosing to buy these products and carry them around wherever they go.




Hand Sanitizer That’s In Stock in Canada

The Covid-19 pandemic is one that has sent shock waves around the world. And at this very moment, there is nothing more important than staying safe. The coronavirus has taught us the significance of using hand sanitizer Canada and its role in keeping germs at bay.

As hand sanitizers are in high demand in Canada, it is important to understand the different available types so as to purchase the most effective one(s) for you. Remember, sanitary measures are important because they reduce the risk of infection.

Given the circumstances, there are sanitizers that frequently go out of stock while others remain available for purchase. Wondering what type of sanitizer to acquire? Here are hand sanitizers that are in stock in Canada:

  • Alcohol-based sanitizers

Available in gel and liquid forms, alcohol-based sanitizers contain at least 60% alcohol. Sanitizers with lesser alcohol concentration will not be as effective in annihilating germs.

 They are the most effective sanitizers in Canada because they come with strong, germ-killing agents, and evaporate in fifteen seconds.

According to studies, these sanitizers are more effective than antibacterial soaps. Even so, alcohol-based hand sanitizers are considered hazardous and they should be stored away from flames and/or high temperatures.

  • Aloe-based hand sanitizers

Everyone loves a little bit of aloe vera in their skincare products because of its antibacterial properties and vitamin E enrichment. Well, aloe-based hand sanitizers are gaining momentum in Canada.

With these sanitizers, your hands will always remain safe and clean. For effective cleaning, rub your hands together until dry. While aloe-based sanitizers do not evaporate as fast as their alcohol-based counterparts, they still get the job done.

  • Organic hand sanitizers

These types of hand sanitizers are suitable for eco-friendly individuals. Even though anyone can use them, they were manufactured for those who value organic supplements in their products.

The formula that is used in their manufacture is also vegan and organic. A majority of these sanitizers are available in spray form. But in order to get your supply, you will require a refillable bottle. Most importantly, they are as affordable as they are convenient.

  • Essential-oil based sanitizers

Yes, you read that right? Did you know that a handful of Canadian manufacturers are breaking the mold and creating hand sanitizers that are purely made out of essential oils?

As they are new to the market, these sanitizers are available in a majority of online and convenient stores.

As essential oils come with powerful antiseptic properties, it only makes sense to use them for their bacteria-killing properties. All you need is a little drop and your hands will be germ-free.

  • The ethanol-based sanitizers (temporary in the market)

Due to the high demand of sanitizers, Health Canada has allowed the temporary use of ethanol-based hand sanitizers.

While these sanitizers will certainly come in handy at this time of need, Health Canada advises on following the label instructions to the latter.

These sanitizers have been allowed for use on a case by case basis because they contain acetaldehyde- an ingredient that poses health risks when used continuously. They should not be used by children as well as women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

However, it is important to know that when used as directed, and for shorter time periods, ethanol-based sanitizers are highly effective, safe, and combat the spread of the coronavirus.

Also, hand sanitizer Canada manufacturers are expected to indicate the content of ethanol on these sanitizers.

A few popular examples of sanitizer brands that are in stock in Canada include:

  • One-step extra strength hand sanitizer
  • Touchland moisturizing hand spray
  • Hibitane skin cleanser
  • Alcare
  • Bio base lotion
  • Adasept liquid

There you go! Each and every type of hand sanitizer Canada that remains in stock! Although there are those who are adopting do-it-yourself approaches as they are making their own sanitizers, they may not be as effective.

Choose any of the aforementioned categories and browse through the multitude of available options to find your best bet. Needless to say, your hand sanitizer is your lifeline in this period of time.

Therefore, when you are purchasing hand sanitizers that are in stock, ensure that your choice contains antiviral and antibacterial properties. As alcohol-based sanitizers come highly recommended, only go for options that contain 60-70% alcohol.

Also, remember that sanitizers, like any other products, come with expiration dates. If a sanitizer has been in stock for too long then it may be approaching the end of its lifeline.

When buying these products, it is best to choose those that do not expire soon. Lest you may end up picking a sanitizer that has lost its ability to kill germs and ward off infections.

Happy shopping fellow Canadians!




Help Detoxify Your Body With Stinging Nettle

Story at-a-glance

  • Even though nettle is often avoided and deemed as a useless plant, it has been the subject of numerous studies that prove its worth
  • There are numerous nettle products that are available in the market today that makes it easy for people to use this herb in various ways

By Dr. Joseph Mercola | mercola.com

Nettle (Urtica dioica) is a common sight in backyards and gardens, although it’s often weeded out and thrown aside, sometimes even avoided because of its stinging properties. But remember that whenever you discard this weed, know that you’re also ignoring the health benefits that you can get from it.

The first documented use of this herb was when Roman soldiers battled the cold by rubbing the leaves on their arms to induce inflammation and irritation. It has now spread across the world and has been used by medical practitioners since the 19th century because of its abundance of chemicals and compounds that can help the body function optimally.

But even though the medicinal importance of nettle has been established through numerous studies, its image is still usually overshadowed by the fact that it’s still an unwelcome member of your garden.1

Nettle plants can be differentiated from other plants through their leaves. The nettle leaf has an ovate shape with deeply serrated edges. These leaves also have long stinging hairs that inject chemicals into the skin when you accidentally touch or brush past them. These hairs often cause pain and inflammation in the affected area.2

Even though nettle is often avoided and deemed as a useless plant, it has been the subject of numerous studies that prove its worth. Continue reading to know more about the health benefits and uses of this common herb.

Nettle Benefits: What Can You Get From This Weed?

Nettle contains vitamins C and K, B vitamins, as well as minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron, to name a few.3 It also has amino acids and antioxidants, which may help fight free radicals.4 Here are a few more health benefits you can get from this herb:

Helps detoxify the body. Nettle is a diuretic, which means that it helps in flushing out harmful chemicals and excess liquids from the body. This herb has also been called a “spring tonic,” which is a substance intended to cleanse the body of toxins.5

Promotes healthy blood circulation and cardiovascular health. Nettle contains iron and vitamin C. Vitamin C improves the body’s absorption of iron,6 which aids in alleviating anemia and fatigue.7 This herb also contains a considerable amount of potassium, a mineral that reduces tension in your arteries and blood vessels, lowering your risk for strokes.8

Alleviates allergic reactions. While physical contact with the nettle leaf can cause allergic reactions, the ingestion of nettle tea is known to help dampen the body’s response to allergens by binding with the body’s histamine receptors. It can aid in the prevention of rhinitis, or the inflammation of the mucous membrane in the nose.9

Reduces arthritis pain. The antioxidant properties of the nettle plant have been observed to help minimize inflammation. It can be used topically to help relieve joint pain as well.10

Animal studies also suggest that nettle may have a positive effect on the prostate and may aid in the prevention of benign prostate hyperplasia, which is the noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. It’s not yet firmly established how nettle affects this condition, but the findings show that this herb limits and regulates the amount of testosterone produced by the lab rats.11

Here’s How You Can Use Nettle in Your Everyday Life

The good news is that there are numerous nettle products that are available in the market today that make it easy for people to use this herb in various ways. Here are some examples of how you can use nettle:

As a capsule or a tincture. Nettle capsules are commonly administered to help the body deal with hay fever. Nettle tinctures are usually made with dried leaves, but they can also be made with nettle roots.12 Consult a physician to make sure that you are taking an adequate dose or if it is even recommended for you.13

As an extract. The juice or extract of the nettle plant can be used topically to help alleviate rheumatic pain.14 In addition, nettle extracts may help in promoting skin renewal in second degree burns in rat subjects.15

Nettle plant fibers are also used in weaving strong garments and other fabrics. It was used as an alternative to cotton during World War I and World War II, but has now been replaced with cheaper materials. Some clothing industries, on the other hand, are now starting to consider nettle as a more environment-friendly alternative to other sources of fabric.16

Grow Your Own Nettle in Your Backyard

While some people would think it’s a bad idea to plant nettles, it can actually be a great idea if you’re familiar with all the benefits you receive from it. Some people actually voluntarily grow this plant to deter foraging animals from feeding on their greens and other gardens produce.

Having your own source of nettle also gives you the freedom to harvest the leaves at any time, whenever the need arises. Follow this guide to know how to grow your own nettle and properly care for this herb:17

Choose a spot in your garden with rich and moist soil. Make sure that you plant nettle at a considerable distance from other plants to avoid it interfering with their development.

Sow nettle seeds in rows and lightly cover with about 1/4 inch of soil. Keep the soil moist. Seeds will start to germinate after about 14 days.

Nettle leaves are ready for harvest after about 80 to 90 days. It’s best to harvest nettle leaves in the first week of spring when the leaves are young. Make sure to use gloves or any protective materials to avoid getting stung.

Try These Delicious and Healthy Nettle Recipes

Aside from using nettle leaves for medicinal purposes, nettle can also be used to add flavor to numerous dishes. People note that nettle tastes like spinach, but with a stronger flavor. However, nettle leaves should be cooked before eating to get rid of the “sting.”18

Nettle is often ingested in tea form, which has been observed to have potent effects on the body. This is probably because of the numerous flavonoids and minerals in the leaves. Some of the benefits of nettle tea include improving skin health, assisting in digestion, and boosting the immune system.19 Below is a nettle tea recipe from BBC Good Food that is packed with numerous health benefits:20

Stinging Nettle Tea

Ingredients:

1 cup of nettle leaves

4 cups of water

1 tablespoon raw honey (optional)

Procedure:

1. Harvest nettle leaves with as little stem as possible. Note that older nettle leaves usually have a sweeter flavor.

2. Place leaves in a large saucepan with 4 cups of water. Bring the water to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.

3.Using a strainer, separate the tea from the leaves. Discard the leaves, and serve the beverage hot. Add honey if needed.

Aside from nettle tea, nettle leaves can also be added to other dishes. Here are some recipes you can try to introduce nettle into your diet.

Creamy and Hearty Nettle Soup

Ingredients:

100 grams (7.05 Tablespoons) raw butter

Nettle Oil May Also Be Beneficial for You

Aside from the tinctures and extracts available in the market, another product that you may benefit from is nettle oil. Due to the highly nutrient-dense leaves of the nettle plant, it comes as no surprise that some, if not most, of nettle’s components, are passed onto its essential oil.

In a 2012 study, nettle oil was extracted from the aerial parts of the plant and subsequently hydrodistilled. The oil itself was found to contain almost 92 percent of the compounds found in the plant.23

The presence of the compounds in nettle essential oil may explain its efficiency in alleviating certain conditions. In a 2011 animal study, nettle oil was found to be beneficial for colitis due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. However, more studies are needed to back up this claim.24

If you’re planning on getting your own bottle of nettle oil, you’ll find that most of what is available is nettle-infused oils. These are usually produced by distilling nettle leaves in a carrier oil. You can find these in numerous health food stores and online stores. Just make sure that you’re getting your supply from trustworthy sources to ensure you’re getting only high-quality products.

A Few Reminders Before Using Nettle

Nettle offers impressive amounts of health benefits and helps the body function more optimally, but it should still be noted that there are contraindications on the use of this herb. Nettle, despite the variety of health benefits it offers, can still interfere with numerous medications and cause a variety of adverse health effects if taken without the supervision or recommendation of a healthcare professional.

Be sure to inquire if it is safe to use this herb and in what form it is advisable. According to the Natural Medicines Database, nettle is “likely unsafe” during pregnancy. However, it may help build a good milk supply for breastfeeding mothers. To ensure your and your child’s safety, consult your doctor before using nettle.25

Vitamin D Identified as the “Survival Nutrient” Against COVID-19… Could Cut Mortality Rate in HALF, Say Researchers

By Mike Adams | The Health Ranger

For three months, we’ve been urging our readers to pursue sensible nutritional strategies to boost immune function and protect against infections. Now a study carried out by Northwestern University has found that higher vitamin D levels result in lower mortality rates from covid-19 infections.

Vitamin D deficiency, according to the study, was significantly linked to the development of severe symptoms and complications leading to death.

The study, published in medRxiv, is entitled, “The Possible Role of Vitamin D in Suppressing Cytokine Storm and Associated Mortality in COVID-19 Patients.”

The study used data from coronavirus patients across multiple nations, including the UK, the USA, China, France, Italy and South Korea. Those patients who had the lowest vitamin D levels had the highest risk of complications such as the “cytokine storm” immune reaction that leads to rapid death.

“[W]e saw a significant correlation with vitamin D deficiency,” says study author Vadim Backman.

The research paper concludes, “Our finding suggests that Vit. D may reduce COVID-19 severity by suppressing cytokine storm in COVID-19 patients.”

The paper is careful to note that vitamin D should not be considered a kind of miracle cure for covid-19 and that more research needs to be conducted to further explore the relationship.

The paper was also covered by StudyFinds.org, which explains:

All of the data used for this study was publicly available, and an in-depth analysis revealed a correlation between vitamin D levels and cytokine storm (a form of hyper-inflammation due to an overactive immune system). A relationship between vitamin D and mortality rates among COVID-19 patients was noted as well.

So, the research team believe vitamin D is helpful against COVID-19 because it simultaneously boosts our existing immune systems while also preventing new immune responses from going over board.

“Our analysis shows that it might be as high as cutting the mortality rate in half,” Backman says. “It will not prevent a patient from contracting the virus, but it may reduce complications and prevent death in those who are infected.”

However, it is clear that vitamin D deficiency is harmful, and it can be easily addressed with appropriate supplementation. This might be another key to helping protect vulnerable populations, such as African-American and elderly patients, who have a prevalence of vitamin D deficiency.

Why is no government leader recommending vitamin D or zinc?

With research like this clearly showing a drastic reduction in mortality from a simple, low-cost and very safe supplement that’s widely available right now, it begs the question: Why isn’t anyone in government recommending nutrition as a way to protect public health while we attempt to reopen the economy?

Even worse, why are governors restricting people from going to the beach where they generate vitamin D for free as they are absorbing healing sunlight? That’s the beauty of vitamin D: Your body makes it at no charge, but not if you’re locked down in your own home, which seems to be part of the big plan to cause mass suffering and death.

President Trump is pushing hard for 300 million doses of a vaccine by the end of the year, but he completely fails to mention vitamin D and zinc. These solutions could be saving lives right now, and they don’t need months (or years) or testing, since they have a long track record of safe, effective use (and are incredibly affordable).

The real answer, of course, is that Big Pharma doesn’t want people to stay healthy with nutrition. They’d rather see people sick and suffering, waiting for a vaccine or another high-priced prescription drug that barely even works (like remdesivir, which saves no lives at all).

And since the drug companies run the White House, the media, Big Tech and medical schools, there’s virtually no one in any position of power that’s willing to risk the ire of the drug companies by recommending safe, simple, low-cost nutritional supplements that might make drugs and vaccines obsolete.

The Big Pharma scheme, you see, demands that the American people stay locked down until there’s a vaccine, at which time the entire US economy will be shattered and beyond repair.

Trump should order the government to manufacture vitamin D + zinc supplements and give them away to all Americans

This is why I’ve called for the government to manufacture and give away key supplements that may help prevent coronavirus infections. For a fraction of the price of the multi-trillion-dollar bailouts that have already been paid, the federal government could provide free vitamin D, zinc and vitamin C for the entire population.

Health care costs would plummet across the board, and Big Pharma would lose hundreds of billions of dollars as fewer people are diagnosed with a long list of diseases and chronic conditions that are prevented through nutrition. And that’s exactly why any plan to keep America healthy will be halted by those in power. A healthy nation doesn’t need Big Pharma, and Big Pharma provides the re-election campaign money that keeps corrupt lawmakers in power. The drug cartels also provide about 70% of the ad revenue to the corrupt mainstream media, which is why the media relentlessly attacks natural remedies while pushing toxic, high-profit prescription drugs and vaccines.

10 Safety Tips For Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month

Motorcycle safety tips

May is when the days start getting warmer, and motorcycles get the freedom to ride after a long winter. Quite fittingly, it’s also Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and a fantastic time to refresh your safety skills.

Whether you feel the need for speed or enjoy cruising along with your buddies, here are ten tips to ensure you arrive safely at your destination.

Drive Defensively

As a rider, the onus is always on you to drive defensively. It’s true that many motorcycle accidents are the fault of drivers failing to yield to riders. However, while an accident may be their fault, you stand to lose a lot more as a rider than they do while protected in their car or truck.

Drive defensively and predict what a driver might do. Trust your gut and be ready to react. Don’t assume that a driver can see you. While they have a legal obligation to be looking for you, it doesn’t mean that they are conscientious.

Consider a Motorcycle Crash Bar

A motorcycle crash bar is an added measure of protection while on the road. This metal bar is designed to prevent your bike from falling over completely in the event of a motor vehicle accident. While this add-on won’t prevent an accident, it can put safety measures in place that reduce injuries when a bike gets knocked over.

Always Wear the Right Gear

Wear the right gear to protect yourself while riding. Always wear a helmet and eye protection, whether that’s a face shield or separate eyewear. Dress for the weather, bringing any alternate gear you might need if the weather changes.

Be Confident, Not Cocky

As a rider, you should be confident and sure of your actions. However, don’t let that confidence cross the line into cockiness. Don’t drive beyond your skill level and practice self-awareness. If you aren’t comfortable, don’t drive.

Follow the Rules

Yes, your bike can probably zip between cars and get out of a traffic snag. However, you’re breaking the rules of the road and putting yourself at risk of an accident. Stick to the rules of the road, and the rules of driving a motorcycle, specifically.

Inspect Your Bike Before Riding

As you aren’t protected by the frame of a car or truck, you need to be extra vigilant in checking your bike before riding. Ensure that the signals are working and the tires are functional. Check for any fluid leaks and ensure the mirrors are positioned, and the brakes are working well.

Remove Distractions

There are a lot of fantastic inventions that make riding more enjoyable—if that’s possible. Things like speakers and intercom systems are great for listening to music or chatting with your passenger while you ride. However, these can also be distracting. Be smart when riding and remove distractions as needed.

Avoid Blindspots

Try to avoid staying out of another vehicle’s blindspot as you pass. If a blindspot can hide a car, it will definitely hide you. When passing, move as quickly as possible and keep your eyes ahead to predict if there’s the potential for the vehicle to suddenly change lanes.

Stand Out

Make your bike and your gear stand out. Add reflective strips and bright colors, so that people can see you in the rain or the dark.

Take it Slow After Winter

The saying, “it’s just like riding a bike,” applies to motorcycles as well. Even so, it’s wise to give yourself some time to adjust after a break. When you finally get back on your bike in the spring, give yourself time to do a couple of laps around the block before venturing out on a longer ride.

Being a rider comes with the unfortunate reality that you have to be hyperaware of everyone else on the road. Remind your friends about Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and let them know how they can help you stay safe while driving.

Working With Your Hands Does Wonders for Your Brain

By Susan Biali | Prevent Disease

Using our hands may actually be key to maintaining a healthy mood, and the lack of this type of activity may contribute to feelings of irritability, apathy, and depression.

When we use our hands on a task that doesn’t demand much cognitively, it gives the mind a chance to relax and rest. Knowledge workers constantly use their brain and it rarely catches a break.

There is a huge sense of relief and pleasure from doing something with our hands that doesn’t require us to think much about anything. It’s magnificent. When the brain is “offline,” it gives it a chance to work on problems behind the scenes.

Dr. Herbert Benson wrote about this phenomenon (and strategy) in his book, The Breakout Principle. When we engage in a repetitive task, completely taking our minds off whatever problem or issue we have been struggling with, the solution will often magically appear.

Working productively with our hands is profoundly pleasurable. There is something primal about this. We are made to be active and have actively used our hands as part of our daily survival for thousands of years. With the advent of so much technology, many of us move through our days with minimal physical effort. We push a button instead of scrubbing dishes or laundry. Overall, we get the far less physical activity that would be optimal for our bodies and minds.

Kelly Lambert wrote about this in her book, Lifting Depression: A Neuroscientist’s Hands-On Approach to Activating Your Brain’s Healing Power:

“What revs up the crucial effort-driven rewards circuit–the fuel, if you will–is generated by doing certain types of physical activities, especially ones that involve your hands. It’s important that these actions produce a result you can see, feel, and touch, such as knitting a sweater or tending a garden. Such actions and their associated thoughts, plans and ultimate results change the physiology and chemical makeup of the effort-driven rewards circuit, activating it in an energized way. I call the emotional sense of well-being that results in effort-driven rewards.”

She also links a lack of hands-on physical activity to the onset of depression, perhaps contributing to the unusually high rates of mood disorders that we see in today’s world:

“Effort-driven rewards and other real-world interactive experiences generate much more intense and pervasive reactions in your brain than the neurochemical alterations produced by a single pill. The result? You begin to feel more control over your environment and more connected to the world around you. This reduces stress and anxiety and, most important, builds resilience against the onset of depression.”

Wonderful, isn’t it?

What do you normally do when you’re feeling stuck or stressed? For a lot of us, we default to eating comfort food, watching Netflix, scrolling through social media feeds, and so on. These things may be relaxing, sure, but we may often feel regret afterward without much brain relief.

What works for you? It could be anything from painting, to washing dishes, to fiddling with a motor.

The next time you are feeling stressed or stuck, try doing something with your hands. It may be exactly what your brain and body need.

The COVID Vaccine: Simple Facts Staring Us in the Face

By Jon Rappoport | No More Fake News

I’ve written much about the extreme dangers of a COVID vaccine. Here I want to present simple basic facts, which apply to all vaccines and all recipients.

Public health agencies readily admit that people with weakened immune systems should not be vaccinated.

But the language they use is dodgy and incomplete. The CDC states: “A vaccine should not be administered when a contraindication is present; for example, MMR vaccine should not be administered to severely immunocompromised persons…Severely immunocompromised persons generally should not receive live vaccines…”

No word about killed-virus vaccines. No word about the dangers of vaccine components, such as aluminum and formaldehyde.

But there are more issues. According to conventional vaccine theory, the injection of a germ stimulates the immune system to mount a response—and this is an effective rehearsal, preparing the immune system to react quickly, later, when the real disease comes along.

But if the recipient of the vaccine has an immune system that is already impaired, how can the “experts” believe the rehearsal will go smoothly? The recipient’s antibody scouts would respond sluggishly. The immune killer cells would fail to carry out their mission of wiping out the germ-invaders in the vaccine.

To use a mechanical analogy, vaccinating people with compromised immune systems is like pumping more efficient fuel into a car to improve its performance, when in fact the car’s engine is already disabled.

Worse yet, vaccinating a person whose immune system is weak would overwhelm his body’s defenses with injected chemicals and germs, creating dire levels of illness. The rehearsal would be the real thing—and the body would take the punishment.

All right. Now imagine the completion of COVID-19 vaccine development and a few billion people receiving a new COVID vaccine. Do you seriously think doctors are going to spend time sorting out all these people, to discover whose immune systems are already weak, and shunting them off into the do-not-vaccinate category? Of course they won’t.

No mass vaccination campaign (for example, in Africa) has separated the weak from the strong—and none of those campaigns approached the numbers envisioned for the COVID vaccine.

In a COVID campaign, people are going to be dropping like flies. And when they do, public health authorities will employ the time-honored strategy of calling them “sudden deaths owing to COVID disease.”

Furthermore, I’m talking about a conventional vaccine. Two new technologies are in the COVID testing pipeline as we speak: DNA and RNA vaccines. They have never been released for public use. DNA technology is actually gene therapy. Genes are injected into the body, and they permanently alter the genetic makeup of the recipient in unknown ways. RNA vaccines would carry the danger of triggering autoimmune reactions, meaning the body basically goes to war against itself.

Pro-vaccine religionists are enthusiastic and militant about bringing a COVID vaccine into play, and they want to see it mandated. In their wet dream, a vaccinated person would receive an immunity certificate, enabling him to go back out into the world, from lockdown. The unvaccinated would face a more murky future.

In this sense, the entire “COVID pandemic” is an operation designed for the use of a vaccine. Politically, it is offered up as a forked road into favored status, or a shameful lower-class outlier category, resembling Church excommunication.

Awareness Freedom Advocate Explains How To Say NO If COVID-19 Vaccination Becomes Mandatory

By Richard Enos | Collective Evolution

For those of us who believe vaccines to be unsafe and not properly tested, news coming out that plans are underway to mandate vaccination for COVID-19 is troubling.

Bill Gates, a man who everyone knows has the biggest financial stake in all this, has said that we won’t go back to normal until a vaccine has gotten out to the entire world.

Many world leaders are ready to follow Gates’ playbook, like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who stated, “Normality as it was before will not come back full-on until we get a vaccine for this.”

And now some officials on the ground, those who are directing the logistics of a vaccine rollout, are telling us how imminent these plans may be. Let’s listen to the words of Dr. Allison Arwady, the head of Chicago’s Public Health Department, who tells us “We’ve already bought the syringes, we already know where it’s going to happen…”:

Defying Mandatory Vaccination Plans

In order to understand how you would be able to defy any initiatives that would attempt to force you or any of your family members to take any vaccines, or ingest or have anything injected into your body for that matter, it is important to grasp one of the most basic principles underlying life on Earth: each of us as individuals are free and sovereign beings. The only way someone can have any power over us is by our consent. Mostly without knowing it, we have consented to the entire political and legal structure that we believe has power over us. If you would like to dive more deeply into the broader discussion of this, please take a look at my series of articles on Natural Law here.

Keeping it within the context of mandatory vaccination, I would like to introduce you to Jerry Day, whose website FreedomTaker serves as a resource for those who would like to come to a better understanding of their sovereignty as individuals and learn about the practical defense of their innate liberty in our current society.

In the video below, Day gives a strong indictment against the Bill Gates/WHO vaccine agenda and its inherent risks to each of us personally, and explains what we need to do if we ever find ourselves being coerced by our government and medical establishment into taking a vaccine:

The first thing we must do is state our position clearly and on the record to those people who administer vaccines. We are certainly not protected if we haven’t even stated our position. You will see links to two free download documents at FreedomTaker.com. The first document is a requirement that all medical service and vaccine providers sign for you, to acknowledge the risks of vaccines, that they are causing that risk by offering vaccines, and that they accept full personal liability to pay for all damage they cause by administering a vaccine.

Of course, if vaccines were safe and effective, they would not hesitate to sign a liability agreement… [but] they know they are doing harm, so most likely, they will refuse to sign that document, and refuse to be responsible for the harm they cause. That refusal to sign is evidence that they know that vaccines have risk, and you therefore are fully within your rights to refuse the vaccine regardless of any legal mandates. That type of document is referred to as a ‘Conditional Acceptance.’ You agree to have a vaccine if they agree to pay for all damage you suffer. They will refuse to sign it. And that gives you the right to refuse their vaccine, because they failed to meet your reasonable requirements of safety.

Jerry Day helps us here to bring the matter back into the real-world situation: the actual person who is physically administering the vaccine is rightly seen as the one who needs to assume responsibility for any consequences of their actions, rather than simply being a compliant cog of a faceless medical industry. It is not hard to see that, once we all start to make those who are simply ‘doing their job’ carrying out the orders from above personally responsible for their actions, by and large they will not follow through and the whole control mechanism and ability to mandate anything falls apart.

COVID-19: Is It as Deadly as They Say?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjS1HpA-Q48

By Dr. Eric Berg | Dr. Eric Berg, DC

Editor’s Note: Human beings are very keyed in to numbers. They dictate much of their lives. Stock market numbers tell investors when they should buy or sell … whether the weather today requires you to wear a jacket or cancel your family gathering … how your child is doing in school, and what kind of school to which he will likely be accepted. They also tell you, supposedly, the level of impact and danger which COVID-19 poses for your community and country. Yet, numbers can be manipulated by those in power, and can cause an overreaction that is dangerous in and of itself. This can be seen right now as many states endeavor to begin opening their communities back up for business. Dr. Eric Berg, in the video above, helps us to better understand the reported and actual numbers of fatalities from Coronavirus.

Please let us know your thoughts about this video in the comments section.

What Is Immunity Support?

Body functionality depends on various components for it to be effective. All these components require you to be persistent for it to have a strong immune system. This way, it will be easy for you to fight diseases and remain fit at all times. Scientists have linked a good human lifestyle with a stronger immune system. This is by keeping fit, eating healthy and nutritious food, and to others inducing various supplements to the body system.

In this case, immunity support is balancing the defense mechanism of the body to fight diseases and other infections. This can be seen to people who have a poor immune system where they are put into special medications. Here are some of the things to do for good immunity support:

1) Healthy Foods

A strong immune system is essentially important in how your body functions. It helps you stay strong and fight any potential diseases that you may get. This way, you are advised to observe healthy diets to ensure that you balance the body nutrients. Lack of nutrients in the body can form imbalanced body nutrients, which may result in a weak immune system. The food may include proteins, vitamins, and carbohydrates. However, people with low counts of body nutrients can rely on supplements prescribed by the doctors. For instance, Ester C is a form of vitamin c, which is used to boost your metabolic ratio. This way, you will have proper vitamins with the capability of boosting your immune system.

2) Exercise

Most people have a common routine of waking up and heading to work every day. This has forced them to neglect the essential things that can help them form a strong immune system. They have a high chance of suffering from chronic diseases, and since their immune system could be weak, they cannot fight back. Therefore, you must consider exercising whenever possible. Physical activity helps your body to secrete hormones responsible for proper immune function.

3) Avoid Stress

People face various challenges, some of which they are unable to handle without help. This may be a high chance of experiencing chronic stress. This kind of stress causes the body to secrete a certain hormone, which may lead to the body experiencing various illnesses. This hormone may override the hormones that help in fighting against diseases, causing you to have a weak immune system. The best way to handle this is by engaging in different activities that will distract your mind from abnormal responses. This can be through meditation, yoga, exercising, or therapy.

4) Sufficient Sleep

Immunity support can be done through various means, depending on the status of your body. Some people tend to have weaker immune systems due to the exposure they have in their daily life. In this case, getting enough sleep is essentially important. This is because your body is more active when sleeping since it produces cells that are meant to strengthen your immune system. It helps your body to heal, especially if you are more physical at what you do. This acts as adequate immunity support that you can get naturally.
