We will leave them where you can get them outside the door!

Not COVID-19, come right in!

Coronavirus facts

Should we use Facemasks? Should we use hand sanitizers?

How to catch the coronavirus:

Eat a poor diet. Make sure your body lacks the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and micronutrients needed for optimal health. People in a weakened state are more vulnerable.

Avoid adequate rest. Stay up late and rely on sugar, tobacco, coffee and energy drinks as needed to be weaker yet.

Become dehydrated. Reduce the effectiveness of your natural defense mechanisms by shunning adequate water. Unless you are exercising, drink at least 8-12 full glasses, but overdrinking can flush vitamins and minerals from the body.

According to Michelle Rogers, Certified Personal Trainer, “in one hour of exercise the body can lose more than a quart of water, depending on exercise intensity and air temperature. If there is not enough water for the body to cool itself through perspiration, the body enters a state of dehydration.

“Drink before you are thirsty! Sip throughout the day.

“Please don’t avoid drinking water just because you don’t want to have to use the bathroom during an exercise class. You aren’t bothering the instructor or anyone else if you need to step out for a break. It’s very important to stay hydrated while working out.

“The American Council on Exercise recommends:

  • Drink 17 to 20 ounces of water two hours before the start of exercise.
  • Drink 7 to 10 ounces of fluid every 10 to 20 minutes during exercise.
  • Drink 16 to 24 ounces of fluid for every pound of body weight lost after exercise.

“For reference, a standard water bottle is 16.9 ounces.”

Stop exercising. Reduce the efficiency of your lymphatic system, which depends on movement to circulate this vital germ-fighting fluid.

Rarely wash your hands. Use your dirty hands and fingers to rub your eyes, pick your nose or wipe your lips.

Think negative thoughts. Worry that you’ll be a victim. Closely monitor news reports about outbreaks, fearing a pandemic.

Skip your chiropractic adjustments, medical and dental visits. Forget about acupuncture or massage. Handicap your nervous system, the master system that controls your entire body. Wait until symptoms are present before doing anything.

The only way to catch anything is to make yourself a hospitable host to the virus or any illness.

Available masks, unfortunately, have perforations that are huge compared to the single-cell virus they are trying to strain out. The CDC says only wear a mask if you are diagnosed with the virus or a health worker wearing a more advanced mask.

Sanitizers. The problem. Sanitizers kill good germs too* and don’t always clear the grime on your hands. The CDC says wash with soap and water.

Sanitizers can quickly reduce the number of germs on hands in many situations. However,

  • Sanitizers do not get rid of all types of germs.
  • Hand sanitizers may not be as effective when hands are visibly dirty or greasy.
  • Hand sanitizers might not remove harmful chemicals from hands like pesticides and heavy metals.

The CDC has written when and how to wash our hands [see below]. Spending a little more time washing our hands can make a difference. Another thing is as we are washing our hands, in school my grandchildren are taught to take a piece of paper towel and use it to turn the handle off and to open the door, not with our clean hands. So what you guys think?

Oh now don’t be one to avoid Chinese restaurants unless you sniffle. Or drink Corona beer.

Many will apply all manner of disinfectants in the hope that killing enough germs will cause health to manifest.

Don’t set about the business of compromising your immune system, which if vibrant, would be more than capable of keeping them disease-free.

Fear-mongering is the perfect way to attract more eyeballs that can be sold to advertisers. Which these days are increasing to pharmaceutical companies.

It is said that Louis Pasteur, the father of the germ theory, recanted his assertion on his deathbed. “It’s the soil, not the seed,” he observed. Whether he said that or not*, without a hospitable host, germs can do very little. The germ theory of disease is a common belief. This belief, like many in the health arena, causes all kinds of strange behaviors. The human immune system has successfully shunned the black plague of the Dark Ages, the Spanish Flu of 1918, polio, measles and many others. If the germ theory were true the human race wouldn’t still be around to worry about it! Germs are a lot like seeds. In fact, when seeds begin to grow, we refer to it as ‘germination.’ If you’ve ever tried to start a new lawn from scratch, you already know that conditions have to be just right for the grass seeds to germinate. It takes a lot more than just the seeds (or germs) to become a seedling (or a disease). For example, if you were to spread grass seed (germs) on your adjusting room carpet, it wouldn’t become a new lawn. The necessary conditions for growth – soil, water and light – wouldn’t be correct. Same with germs. The conditions have to be just right for germs to cause disease.

Try to rise above the hysteria and mob mentality. Be a voice of reason and composure. And the truth.

When and How to Wash Your Hands

Handwashing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick. Learn when and how you should wash your hands to stay healthy.

Wash Your Hands Often to Stay Healthy

hand washing with soapYou can help yourself and your loved ones stay healthy by washing your hands often, especially during these key times when you are likely to get and spread germs:

  • Before, during, and after preparing food
  • Before eating food
  • Before and after caring for someone at home who is sick with vomiting or diarrhea
  • Before and after treating a cut or wound
  • After using the toilet
  • After changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has used the toilet
  • After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • After touching an animal, animal feed, or animal waste
  • After handling pet food or pet treats
  • After touching garbage

Follow Five Steps to Wash Your Hands the Right Way

Washing your hands is easy, and it’s one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of germs. Clean hands can stop germs from spreading from one person to another and throughout an entire community—from your home and workplace to childcare facilities and hospitals.

Follow these five steps every time.

  • Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
  • Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  • Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song [slowly]* or from beginning to end twice.
  • Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  • Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.

Why? Read the science behind the recommendations.

Use Hand Sanitizer When You Can’t Use Soap and Water

Washing hands with soap and water is the best way to get rid of germs in most situations. If soap and water are not readily available, you can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. You can tell if the sanitizer contains at least 60% alcohol by looking at the product label.

How to use hand sanitizers

  • Apply the gel product to the palm of one hand (read the label to learn the correct amount).
  • Rub your hands together.
  • Rub the gel over all the surfaces of your hands and fingers until your hands are dry. This should take around 20 seconds.
