Today’s blog is a podcast. The link is at the end of this blog.
I want to write a bit in addition to my podcast because life today is so strange due to COVID-19 Coronavirus sweeping our world. As I write this today we are in quarantine in LA & it is so strange to look out in one way & yet another way so beautiful. The freeway in the distance is empty and silent, an eerie feeling in the streets as if we are in the moment of calmness before the storm; & yet the sky is so clean & clear like we have not seen in years. The birds look happy, our cat Luke is super happy, & in so many ways people seem to care more about each other & that is beautiful. But the financial markets are crashing, the streets all over the world that used to be filled with shops run by families & small businesses are empty, along with the large corporate shops & I can’t wrap my head around how this will all work out. What happens to all the rent they need to pay & if they can’t? What happens to the owners of the buildings that need the rent if no one pays? Will we lose all these businesses that fuel our cities for many years, some of them for decades? What will cities be like in one year, five years or even 10 years? Will the government help the people or the gigantic wealthy corporations that have acted corruptly for years? How many will eventually die from this? Will I get it & will I live through it? These are all questions I have asked myself as I am sure you have too. We have no answers & no idea how this will end & that makes it like living in a movie… an eerie movie. It is like a bad dream when it comes to the financial economy of our world, but also for our health care systems all over the world. This pandemic in this regard is truly a disaster. However, on the other hand, I believe deep in my soul that nature would always seek balance. Sooner or later we would have to pay for all the overconsumption, overpopulation, over destruction we have done to our mother earth & for the killing of the 80 billion land animals, we have fed poisonous medicines in order for them to grow faster only to eat more of them. And I knew that soon we would pay for all the suppression of symptoms we do with the millions of pharmaceuticals that we overcharge for & yet hide the reason behind why the drugs are needed in the first place. Mother nature had enough; human beings are sicker than ever before & now we have a disease that is sweeping through the world taking out those that they say have pre-existing conditions. WELL… to me that is most of the world since even high blood pressure or heart disease or diabetes is considered one of those pre-existing conditions. That is why we should fear the COVID-19 virus. If, however, we would have focused on preventative health in the world by eating the plant-based diet we are designed to eat & if we treated only with nature’s medicines that are the true medicines of the earth, we would not be in this position. Sadly, so many are losing their lives.. young, old, healthy, unhealthy, rich, poor…. this virus spares no judgment. My heart breaks to see the doctors, nurses, EMT, Fireman and Police and all they are doing in this crisis while risking their own lives since they don’t have the protective commitment. I can’t imagine seeing so much death as they are saying right now. I wish it would be different but I also understand that we were living an unsustainable life that was bound to burst soon. And we are here now, today.
Anyway, I hope today you will learn from my podcast. I teach you the symptom phases of the COVID-19 virus, offer you ideas to build your immunity & to destress, along with just share our concerns together. We need to be here for each other, help each other in any way we can. I truly appreciate you.. each and every one of you. May you be safe.

Remember it is more about the terrain than the bug… living clean, eating clean creates a system bugs don’t like to inhabit!
