Day 5/15 – Thursday 19th March –15 days of Spanish lock down
When I decided to write this daily email series and post them in the blog, it was never my intention to delve into the scientific and medical side of what is going on and it remains that way – there are enough more informed sources for everyone to read.
A casing point is an interesting, easy to watch animated documentary / informative piece that explains exactly what the corona virus, how it affects us and appears to come from a legitimate medical source – You can watch here if you are interested
You may recall me mentioning at some point that my lovely mum died from breast cancer at the age of 54 and some 6 years ago my father passed away having suffered from myeloma. Since then I have always been interested in alternative medicines and ways to prevent cancer and disease.
From all my reading one word summaries it best which is ‘alkalise´.
In short, the view is that a body that is alkaline makes it harder for disease and virus to multiple and spread. I won’t go into that now but am happy to discuss this with you personally if of interest. I guess there are plenty of different views on the matter.
The reason for mentioning it is that I received an email today from a guy called Chris (www.chrisbeatcancer.com ) in the US that I have followed for a while – I don’t read all his messages day to day (who has time, apart from now!). I don’t agree with everything he says in the article, especially when listening to the current experiences of an Italian hospital physician, but I thought I would share some points.
“We are in the midst of a pandemic. But despite what they are saying on the news, COVID-19 is not the pandemic…
The pandemic is fear.
A sound mind is a rational mind. Don’t panic. Return the extra toilet paper you bought. LOL
… the entire world is overreacting thanks to the media and politicians, who thrive on fear-mongering…
…The elderly, people with serious health problems, and chemo patients always have been and always will be especially vulnerable to viral and bacterial infections.”
He then goes on to talk about statistics and death rates and links to an article from another seemingly informed source and a scientific review and comparing it to other viruses.
Most interestingly and on a practical level he says that Vitamin D may be the most important annual protective measure against colds, flu, and viruses, including COVID-19. Vitamin D comes from natural light, but there are supplements you can take to dose up.
I have posted his https://liontrustspain.com/muh-muh-muh-my-corona-perspective-and-tips/ if you are interested in the science. There are a couple religious references in there, just so you know.
My wife Hessia went to the local Mercadona supermarket in the morning. Stocks were low, but apparently it was all very civilised with relatively normal shopping taking place. It feels so strange to even write that!!
We also had an engineer from Movistar visit the house to check on the router. He found something external on the street he didn’t like and changed the part. Let’s hope that’s solves the issue!
