a change in recommendations
I’m was pretty mad when this news came out. Actually, I believe I was probably more irritated than anything, somewhat rolling my eyes while at the same time celebrating. Two weeks ago when the CDC announced a change in their recommendations, I felt like it was what we had been saying all along. That people who have immunity from the disease, are just as protected from those who got the injection. They more or less weren’t recognizing natural immunity for the past two years, but now they are. Huh? Why the shift now?
How come this natural immunity wasn’t recognized before? It is for most other things …. Children playing in the dirt may help strengthen their microbiome; babies born vaginally pick up the vaginal flora that c-section babies miss (thus probiotics help those c-section babies); children exposed to the chicken pox or other diseases in the wild can build immunity to it. And the list goes on. I imagine since Covid was so new, that no one really knew what was going to happen, but natural immunity isn’t new. Natural immunity has been around since the beginning of time. A home with a roof, clean water, and cleanliness, (with surgeons actually washing their hands in between surgery), is what led to a decrease in deaths many years ago. But I digress….
Anyhow, some of their biggest changes the CDC made include:
- Unvaccinated people now have the same guidance as vaccinated people.
- Those who are exposed to the virus are no longer required to quarantine regardless of vaccination status.
- Students may stay in class even if they’ve been exposed to COVID-19.
- Six-foot social distancing is no longer recommended.
So what does that say for the people who were forced to get the vaccination or lose their job? Is that fair to them now? Gosh it’s just so frustrating for people who were fired, quit, or just gave in and got the shot even though they didn’t want to. Can lawsuits even happen? Oh wait, those pharmaceutical companies cannot be sued (did you know that? If you have a bad reaction, oh well, you are out of luck). But can an employer be sued for forcing this among employees? Hmmm…..
And then just this week, the NIH put Ivermectin on their website as a possible treatment for Covid. But in the past, you were outlawed for even talking about it or prescribing it. I guess we all have to go through periods of doubts and questions before the truth (or solutions) come out, right?
And then Mark Zuckerberg admitted to Facebook doing their share of censorship…yea, you read that right.
Regardless of your stance on all of this, doing anything you can to build a strong immune system is always a key part of health. Do your research, don’t blindly follow (though millions have done just that the past 2+ years). But slowly people are doing more of their own research, reading all the behind the scenes stories, looking at newsletters and websites of non-mainstream media. If you don’t know where to look, ask us, we can help, we can provide those references so you can make the best decision for you.
In the meantime, eat healthy, get lots of sleep, get checked and adjusted on a regular basis. And if you want, do your research on that first.
Looks like rain may be in our forecast this weekend, it could be a good chance to play outside, in the rain & barefoot and in the mud. Or not. Whatever you feel best about. You only have one life to live. Make the best of it.
