We are so happy you came to visit!

We warmly welcome all.

“Was it always a lie?”

We are all in trouble. The world and all its creatures are in trouble.

The mass formation which has shaped our social environment has created fear, separating us from each other.

To begin the healing, let us try to find the humanity in each other behind the masks, in spite of the concerns of being – or not being immunized.

This we can more easily do when we are healthy.

What can you do to keep healthy?

Reduce inflammation using diet and lifestyle.

Inflammation is the body’s response healthy to injury but this illness creates trouble by causing an exaggerated inflammatory response, principally in our lungs.  We may be able to modify how our body responds to this inflammatory challenge if we can reduce our body’s reactivity in the time available to us before we meet this virus.  The following are some general suggestions.

Reduce sugar and sweets.

Sugar creates inflammation by disrupting the microbiome and promoting the growth of bacteria, fungi, yeasts and possibly viruses.  Sugar includes sweets in any form including the usual suspects -cookies, candies, ice cream, and soft drinks.  Fruits contain large amounts of sugar.  Some are worse than others.  Grapes apples oranges and most tropical fruit (with the exception of lemon) are very high. Sugar is thought to act by altering the gut microbiome which is largely responsible for our innate immune strength. Additionally, in Oriental medicine sweets are thought to weaken the kidney energy.

Reduce or Eliminate Dairy Products

Consuming dairy increases the body’s mucus load and as one of the ways viral infections create problems is excess mucus production, so reducing  one’s mucus load makes sense. If milk-like products are important to you, find an almond / oat / rice/ coconut or other milky substitute. (Soya is excluded from our recommendations). The lungs are particularly sensitive to excess mucus which depend on the clarity of a membrane no thicker than kitchen plastic wrap. The respiratory tract immunity and its function may be impaired by pre-existing mucus issues.

Remain positive – reduce fear.

If you have been diagnosed with COVID or, because of your symptoms, believe you have COVID……. Be Not Afraid! Your ancient immune system will help to see you through until your acquired immunity kicks in to defeat this bug.

Almost everyone with COVID will recover completely. Please consider taking the following steps.

  • Rest. Stay in bed. Drink plenty of hot but not sweet liquids.
  • Avoid NSAIDS (Advil, ASA, Naprosyn) because the fever is beneficial and helps to overcome the virus. If high fever, Tylenol (acetaminophen) may help.
  • At the first sign of Covid-19 – i.e. a sniffle, particularly if you have been in contact with someone who has been ill, please consider taking Ivermectin.
  • Please use the supplements on this page including NAC if you develop a mucousy cough.
  • When you think you’re better and your fever and cough has disappeared, please rest for a few more days to let your immune system catch up.
  • Consider if you might be willing to wear a button saying something like, “I survived COVID – you can too.”

Next Steps - Actions to Improve your ability to remain healthy

You may chose to become proactive in anticipation of your encounter with COVID-19. These are our suggestions.

What follows is a verse by Rudolf Steiner who himself lived through the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1917 in which 10% of the world’s population died. Gratefully although the current event is creating terrible pain and social disruption, these words can bring us comfort and courage.

FOR COURAGE

 

We must eradicate from the soul
all fear and terror of what
comes towards man
out of the future.
We must acquire serenity
in all feelings and sensations
about the future.

We must look forward
with absolute equanimity
to everything that may come.
And we must think only that
whatever comes is given to us
by a world-directive
full of wisdom.

It is part of what we
must learn in this age,
namely, to live out of pure
trust, without any security
in existence.
Trust in the ever present
help of the spiritual world.

Truly, nothing else will do
if our courage is not to fail us.

And let us seek the awakening
from within ourselves,
every morning
and every evening. 

Rudolf Steiner (1861 – 1925)
