HWA – Covid 19 – WHAT HAPPENS ONCE YOU LEAVE THE HOSPITAL – Physical and Mental Conditions can Linger for Months After Covid Recovery

Patients who survive severe Covid 19  after being hospitalized are not necessarily home-free upon discharge, new research warns.

News Picture: 'A Struggle:' Physical, Mental Ills Can Linger Months After COVID Recovery

After tracking outcomes among 1,250 Covid 19 patients for two months after being released from the hospital, investigators found that nearly 7% ultimately died in the weeks following their release, while 15% ended up being readmitted to the hospital. Many others said they continued to struggle with symptoms and were unable to resume their usual lifestyle or return to work.

“COVID is not a ‘one-and-done’ disease,” said study author Dr. Vineet Chopra, chief of the division of hospital medicine with Michigan Medicine at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. “Rather, there are many complications and consequences that patients continued to struggle with,” he said.

“Our findings suggest that we need to approach post-hospitalization COVID care differently,” Chopra said. “Yes, there are medical needs. But there are also more pressing needs in terms of mental well-being, financial and emotional stress, being able to regain independence, [and] return to work. We need policy and programmatic approaches to help with these issues.”

Among an initial pool of about 1,650 seriously ill covid 19 patients, nearly one-quarter died while undergoing treatment in 38 hospitals across the United States. Investigators focused on the remaining 75% who were discharged at some point between March and July 2020.

On average, released patients were 62 years of age. A little more than half were Black and just over one-third were white. While hospitalized, about 13% had spent part of their time in the intensive care unit (ICU), 6% had been on a ventilator and 70% had been treated with supplemental oxygen.

Nearly 500 patients participated in a follow-up phone survey 60 days out. By that point, nearly one-third said they experienced persistent symptoms; nearly one in five said they experienced new or worse symptoms after release; and about 40% were unable to resume their normal routines. Only about one-quarter said they had been able to return to work, according to the report.

Roughly half said their poor health had a mild or moderate effect on their emotional state of mind. And about half said covid 19 had taken a mild or moderate hit on their finances, with about 10% saying they had used up all or most of their savings.

“In general, we know very little about what happens to patients following discharge from the hospital,” Chopra acknowledged.

“I think we were also surprised to hear of how much of a struggle life after COVID has been for many of the survivors,” he noted. And while acknowledging that some of that struggle might be shared with survivors of other serious illnesses, Chopra stressed the unique challenges covid 19  survivors face.

“Unlike other serious illness when you have support from family, many post-COVID patients found themselves alone, isolated [or] quarantined, experiencing stigma and challenges accessing health care again,” Chopra said. “This is especially true for the vast majority of patients we saw from inner-city areas who were often economically disadvantaged to begin with.”

The findings were published online Nov. 11 in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Dr. Colin Franz, a physician/scientist with the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab in Chicago, said the finding that stands out for him is that even two months after being released from the hospital many of the patients remained unable to return to work.

Franz pointed to a number of likely reasons why, including “persistent fatuque, brain fog as well as neuromuscular problems stemming from nerve and muscle damage.” Though not part of this study, Franz’s own research has further identified a risk for enduring peripheral nerve and muscle damage that is higher than what’s typically seen among patients coming out of the ICU following other types of illnesses.

The upshot, he said, is that there is an “extreme risk of persistent disability for survivors of covid 19 who required hospitalization.”

Franz noted that some of that disability may ultimately be linked to the risks associated with being hospitalized and undergoing treatment for any serious illness. “For example, patients who spend a long time on a ventilator for reasons other than COVID-19 tend to be very debilitated afterwards,” he said. Figuring out which lingering health issues are directly attributable to the coronavirus will take more investigation, he added.

HWA WILD BLUEBERRY BUCKLE

WILD BLUEBERRY BUCKLE

Wild blueberries are the star ingredient of this incredibly tasty buckle cake. With a moist cake base, bursts of flavorful wild blueberries, and a sweet and buttery streusel topping that is made with coconut oil instead of butter, this cake recipe is hard to beat. Plus, it’s gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free, and vegan, making it a great choice for a healthier cake that doesn’t compromise on flavor.

Wild blueberries are one of the most effective heavy metal detoxing foods and are also the most powerful brain food in existence. They are also the most potent prebiotic there is, and a star at restoring the liver.

Wild Blueberry Buckle Cake

Ingredients:

Streusel topping:
1/4 cup gluten free oat flour
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1 tbsp coconut sugar
1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp melted coconut oil

Cake:
1 cup gluten-free oat flour
1 cup brown rice flour
2 tbsp potato starch
2/3 cup coconut sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup unsweetened almond milk or light coconut milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract or vanilla powder
1 cup frozen or fresh wild blueberries (or regular fresh blueberries if needed)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Line an 8 or 9 inch springform baking tin with parchment paper. Set aside.

Make the streusel by combining the oat flour, brown rice flour, and coconut sugar in a small bowl. Whisk until uniform, then pour in the maple syrup and coconut oil. Rub the wet ingredients into the dry until you get a crumbly mixture. Set aside.

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the oat flour, brown rice flour, potato starch, coconut sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Whisk until uniform and lump-free.

In another bowl, whisk together the almond milk, applesauce, coconut oil, and vanilla until uniform. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Stir until evenly mixed. The batter should be very thick but pourable. Add a bit more flour or milk if needed to get this consistency. Gently fold in the wild blueberries. Pour the batter into the prepared baking tin and top with the streusel. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until browned on top and toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Cool for 5 minutes in the baking tin, then gently remove and place on a wire rack to cool completely. Best enjoyed on the day of baking.

Serves 6-8

HWA 12 FOODS THAT HELP HEAL SHINGLES

12 FOODS THAT HELP HEAL SHINGLES

12FoodsShingles (2)

In the medical world, shingles seems like an open-and-shut case. You’ve got a patient with the textbook rash, nerve pain on the side or back, and that’s all, folks. The truth is that the shingles virus is responsible for millions of people’s mystery symptoms, from rashes that confound dermatologists to neurological symptoms like twitching, tingling, burning, spasms, chronic migraines, headaches, and much more. Varieties of shingles are responsible for Bell’s palsy, frozen shoulder, diabetic nerve pain, colitis, vaginal burning, burning in other areas, TMJ, Lyme disease, sciatic pain, and even misdiagnosed MS.

Many doctors don’t yet know is that there isn’t merely one type of shingles virus, but over 30 varieties. This matters because different types of shingles cause different symptoms. It also matters because medical communities don’t even recognize the majority of shingles cases as being the result of a virus. For example, any of the more aggressive varieties of shingles can cause Lyme disease symptoms yet doctors currently believe Lyme disease is caused by bacteria from a deer tick.

Certain foods can greatly aid the body in healing from shingles varieties with and without rashes. They can help by, variously, attacking the different strains of the virus, supporting the body in recovery from neurotoxin flare-ups, boosting the immune system, healing nerves and stimulating nerve growth, soothing inflamed skin, and detoxifying the body. Below you will find 12 of the foods that help heal shingles. Include them daily or as often as possible.

Celery juice’s subgroup of sodium that I call “sodium cluster salts” inhibit the growth of shingles (and other pathogens). The sodium cluster salts also attach themselves to the viral neurotoxins that are responsible for so many neurological health issues and carry them out of the body safely so that nerves are less exposed to shingles damaging neurotoxins. The unique form of vitamin C in celery juice fuels the immune system so it can seek out and destroy shingles.

Wild blueberries help restore the central nervous system and flush shingles neurotoxins out of the liver. They also help remove toxic heavy metals from the brain and liver, which shingles virus feeds on and then produces neurotoxins which cause many symptoms and conditions. Wild blueberries smaller than their larger, cultivated cousins and can be found in the freezer section of many grocery stores.

Papaya’s amino acids and enzymes combined create undiscovered subcompound phytochemicals that repel viruses. Its vitamin C content is an antiviral secret weapon and also helps cleanse and rebuild the liver where the shingles virus camps out. Papayas also restore the central nervous system from viral neurotoxin damage, which is critical for shingles-caused symptoms or conditions. Look for the Mexican and Central American papaya variety known as Maradol. These medium-to-large papayas are preferable to Hawaiian varieties, which have suffered GMO contamination.

Apples starve out viruses from the intestinal tract and liver. As the pectin from an apple moves through your gut, it collects and rids your body of viruses and other microbes such as bacteria, yeast, and mold. Choose red-skinned apples for the most nutrients.

Pears revitalize and feed the liver while cleansing and purging the organ of shingles virus waste matter. Pears restore linings in the gut that have become damaged from the shingles virus. The shingles virus feeds off of milk, cheese, butter, and eggs and then excretes toxic waste that breaks down the intestinal linings over time.

Artichokes help cleanse the liver of neurotoxins and dermatoxins produced by viruses such as the shingles virus. The edible portion of artichoke leaves (technically, bracts) contains alkaloid compounds that send messages to specific parts of your immune system to guard you from invaders such as shingles.

Bananas are a powerful antiviral food with incredible anti-inflammatory properties due to their ability to lower viral load. They provide amino acids and the right kind of potassium to rebuild neurotransmitters after they’ve been burnt out by shingles’ neurotoxins. Bananas are a secret weapon in reversing colitis, which is caused by the shingles virus–a truth still unknown to medical research and science.

Sweet potato helps cleanse and detox the liver of shingles virus toxic byproduct that builds up over the years and makes the liver stagnant and sluggish. They also help to feed the nerves, which are greatly affected by the shingles virus because shingles virus neurotoxins are highly inflammatory to nerves.

Spinach creates an alkaline environment in the body and provides highly absorbable micronutrients to the nervous system, which is critical because EBV targets the nervous system when it gets to stage four .  Spinach binds onto and removes the jelly-like EBV waste matter in the liver that can contribute to mystery weight gain, mystery heart flutters and more. Spinach is best eaten raw to receive its benefits.

Asparagus has phytochemicals in the skin and tips of its spears that push back shingles and help stop it from reproducing. Asparagus is also an incredible alkalizer, meaning it helps anyone who has become acidic with a load of troublemakers like shingles and its byproducts return to a healthy state. Asparagus has blood-, lymph-, and liver-purifying properties that make it an ideal food for helping to detoxify viral byproduct sludge.

Lettuces (varieties that are leafy and deep green or red) are antiviral. They help cleanse shingles from the liver and lymphatic system and are alkalizing to the body. Lettuces such as romaine contain sedative compounds that relax the nerves and calm the body, which is helpful for anyone with a viral symptom or condition that inflames the nerves.

Green beans contain anti-inflammatory chlorophyll-based compounds that are beneficial for any symptom or condition caused by shingles.

HWA – MASKS ARE CAUSING IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE

MASKS ARE CAUSING IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE

The rebreathing of our exhaled air will, without a doubt create oxygen deficiency and a flooding of carbon dioxide. We know that the human brain is very sensitive to oxygen deprivation. There are nerve cells for example in the hippocampus, that can’t be longer than 3 minutes without oxygen – they cannot survive.

Wearing a Mask Social Story — PAAutism.org, an ASERT Autism Resource Guide

The acute warning symptoms are – headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, issues in concentration, slowing down of the reaction time – reactions of the cognitive system.

However, when you have chronic oxygen deprivation, all of those symptoms disappear, because you get used to it. But your efficiency will remain impaired and the undersupply of oxygen in your brain continues to progress.

We know that neurodegenerative diseases take years to decades to develop. If today you forget your phone number, the breakdown in your brain would have already started 20 or 30 years ago.

While you’re thinking, that you have gotten used to wearing your mask and rebreathing your own exhaled air, the degenerative processes in your brain are getting amplified as your oxygen deprivation continues.

The second problem is that the nerve cells in your brain are unable to divide themselves normally. So in case our governments will generously allow us to get rid of the masks and go back to breathing oxygen freely again in a few months, the lost nerve cells will no longer be regenerated. What is gone is gone.

I do not wear a mask in the car or at home or when I am alone. I need my brain to think. I want to have a clear head when I deal with my patients, and not be in a carbon dioxide induced anesthesia.

There is no unfounded medical exemption from face masks because oxygen deprivation is dangerous for every single brain. It must be the free decision of every human being whether they want to wear a mask that is absolutely ineffective to protect themselves from a virus.

For children and adolescents, masks are an absolute no-no. Children and adolescents have an extremely active and adaptive immune system and they need a constant interaction with the microbiome of the Earth.

Their brain is also incredibly active, as it is has so much to learn. The child’s brain, or the youth’s brain is thirsting for oxygen. The more metabolically active the organ is, the more oxygen it requires. In children and adolescents every organ is metabolically active.

Helping Kids Get Used to Seeing and Wearing Masks

To deprive a child’s or an adolescent’s brain from oxygen, or to restrict it in any way, is not only dangerous to their health, it is absolutely criminal.

Oxygen deficiency inhibits the development of the brain, and the damage that has taken place as a result CANNOT be reversed.
The child needs the brain to learn, and the brain needs oxygen to function. We don’t need a clinical study for that. This is simple, indisputable physiology.

Conscious and purposely induced oxygen deficiency is an absolutely deliberate health hazard, and an absolute medical contraindication.

An absolute medical contraindication in medicine means that this drug, this therapy, this method or measure should not be used – is not allowed to be used.

To coerce an entire population to use an absolute medical contraindication by force, there must be definite and serious reasons for this, and the reasons must be presented to competent interdisciplinary and independent bodies to be verified and authorized. Never in any clinical setting does a healthcare worker wear a mask for any length of time. Standard practice even in the surgical arena is no longer than 30 minutes.

When in ten years, dementia is going to increase exponentially, and the younger generations couldn’t reach their god-given potential, it won’t help to say “we didn’t need the masks”.

How can a veterinarian, a software distributer, a business man, an electrical car manufacturer and a physicist decide on matters regarding the health of the entire population? Please dear colleagues, we all have to wake up.
I know how damaging oxygen deprivation is for the brain, a cardiologist knows it for the heart, the pulmonologist knows it for the lungs. Oxygen deprivation damages every single organ.

Where are our health departments, our health insurance, our medical associations? It would have been their duty to be vehemently against the lockdown and to stop it and stop it from the very beginning.

Why do the medical boards give punishments to doctors who give people exemptions? Does the person or the doctor seriously have to prove that oxygen deprivation harms people? What kind of medicine are our doctors and medical associations representing?

Who is responsible for this crime? The ones who want to enforce it? The ones who let it happen and play along, or the ones who don’t prevent it?

It’s not about masks, it’s not about viruses, it’s certainly not about your health. It is about much much more. I am not participating. I am not afraid.

You can notice, they are already taking our air to breathe. The imperative of the hour is personal responsibility. We are responsible for what we think, not the media. We are responsible for what we do, not our superiors. We are responsible for our health, not the World Health Organisation. And we are responsible for what happens in our country, not the government.”

HWA – HEAVY METAL SYNDROME

HEAVY METAL SYNDROME

Toxic heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, copper, cadmium, lead, arsenic, nickel, chrome, alloy, and steel are hidden antagonizers that can find their way into our bodies and wreak havoc. They are one of the Unforgiving Four, which is a group of dangers we are exposed to that threaten our health and well-being. If you want to heal from chronic illness and symptoms, removing the heavy metals in your body and brain is an incredible place to start. Below I share some of the symptoms triggered by heavy metals, the history of heavy metals, and a heavy metal detox plan.

Heavy Metal Toxicity Symptoms

Heavy metals can cause ADHD, ADD, autism, depression, OCD, mood disorders, Alzheimer’s, focus, concentration and memory loss issues, and much more. They can also increase any viral or bacterial issues you may be battling. For example, heavy metals can serve as a feeding ground for Streptococcus A or B, E. coli, C  difficile, H. pylori, MRSA and yeast cells. This can create an overgrowth of multiple bacteria in our gut, resulting in a condition known as SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), which is characterized by bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation (or both), and can lead to nutrient deficiencies. Additionally, when viruses such as Epstein-Barr and shingles feed off toxic heavy metals, this can produce symptoms such as tingling, numbness, fatigue, anxiety, heart palpitations, ringing in the ears, dizziness and vertigo, as well as neck pain, knee pain, foot pain, pain in the back of the head, and a variety of other aches and pains that are often attributed to other causes.

It’s virtually impossible not to take in a certain amount of these toxic heavy metals in our modern era, so it’s vitally important to our health that we get them out before they can wreak further havoc on our health.

The History of Toxic Heavy Metals

It may be surprising to learn that toxic heavy metals have been inside of many of us since before we were born. The heavy metals we are born with are passed on through our family line and can be up to a thousand years old. Although mercury was in the earth well before then, it wasn’t until two to three thousand years ago that people started to mine mercury and gather it for various uses. Mercury mining is the reason the mercury inside of us can be up to eighty generations old! As this old mercury has been passed from generation to generation, each succeeding generation grows more intolerant to the toxic heavy metal.

So, this is not a genetic disorder, but an inherited disorder, that has increased with the changes in food intake.

Unfortunately, it is these “old” metals, the ones that have been lurking in our system for prolonged periods of time, that pose the greatest threat. For example, over time toxic heavy metals can oxidize, causing damage to surrounding tissue and promoting inflammation. They literally poison our bodies, and can inflict damage on virtually every system and organ, including our brain, liver, digestive system, and other parts of our nervous system. Toxic heavy metals put an immense burden on our immune system, leaving us vulnerable to a variety of illnesses and are also a form of neurotoxin (a poison that disrupts nerve function and confuses your immune system) which can leave your health in a compromised state. These old metals increase and grow and then passed down to the next generation, and get worse with each one.

The Devastating Mercury Elixir

You may be wondering where this inherited mercury comes from. One example stems from the trend of mercury elixirs given in conventional medical offices during the seventeen and eighteen hundreds. If you went to a conventional doctor for anything from a stomach ache to a broken leg, you were given a big glass of water mixed with mercury. This tonic was mandatory upon entering a conventional doctors’ office regardless of your age or health issue. The effects were devastating, and many patients lost their families, their work, and their sanity. Mercury doesn’t leave our bodies unless we know exactly how to detoxify them the right way, so the toxic mercury elixirs our forefathers and foremothers drank are still affecting new generations. This is only one of the ways people were exposed to this heinous heavy metal. You could knowingly or unknowingly be affected by some of this old, inherited mercury, so it’s important to have the tools to detoxify mercury and other toxic heavy metals from your system.

New Mercury

Over the last thirty years, we’ve grown more intolerant to mercury than ever before, and we are not only dealing with inherited mercury, but new mercury that enters our bodies through environmental exposure. Presently, mercury is falling out of the sky, it’s in our water, in our food, in pesticides, and more. Even if you are skeptical of having inherited mercury, you’ve most likely come into contact with new mercury during your lifetime. Have you ever eaten a can of tuna? Perhaps you’ve had pesticides sprayed inside your home or lived in a heavily sprayed apartment complex. These are just a few ways in which you might have encountered this toxic heavy metal.

How Mercury Works

Mercury gathers together in the body. If you have inherited mercury or been exposed to it in your lifetime, it will find any new mercury you come into contact with and collect together in your system. Unfortunately, mercury becomes more toxic as it builds on itself over time. This occurrence can be seen by the worsening of symptoms throughout someone’s life, such as an increase in OCD, anxiety, depression, or memory loss.

The Diversity of Symptoms

The reason people experience different heavy metal symptoms at varying levels of severity is because heavy metals reside in unique areas of the brain and body for each individual. One person may have heavy metals in the left temporal lobe while someone else may have a pocket near the pituitary gland. Everybody has different types of metals in their systems as well. These unique blends, which I call alloys, reflect off one another causing even greater issues. For instance, one person may have a little mercury, lead, aluminum, and copper, while someone else may have a high level of mercury and only a little aluminum. This is the reason that depression, anxiety, and other symptoms can look so different for each person. Add in the oxidation of the heavy metals and the strengthening of pathogens that feed off these metals, and it’s easy to see why these metals pose such a big threat to our health and create a vast variety of confusing symptoms that aren’t understood by the patient or health practitioner.

Why We Need These Heavy Metals Out

Why is a heavy metal detox essential for health and vitality? Because our neurotransmitters are short circuiting, burning out, and being destroyed by the toxic heavy metals that bring about brain fog, confusion, lack of motivation and many other devastating symptoms. If you find your emotions easily takeover or emotional situations often times become too much for you to bear, the electrical impulses in your body are likely running into heavy metals and short circuiting. Hold onto the truth that you are not crazy. You are completely sane and have heavy metals in your system that are triggering these issues. Fortunately, you can halt the corrosion and oxidation of heavy metals, pull these metals from the brain, liver, and other areas of the body where they are causing problems, and heal your neurons, neurotransmitters, and more.

Carpel tunnel symptoms, shaking hands and arms, restless leg syndrome, twitches, speech impediments, or just stumbling over your words are some of the physician symptoms to look for.   Medical conditions such as high blood pressure, eczema,  any dermatitis, skin rashes, multiple infections, RA, MRSA, Herpes, hepatitis are just a few of the medical conditions you  may , or may not, experience first.

Detoxifying the Toxic Heavy Metals

If you are experiencing any heavy metal-related symptoms, know that it’s not because your body is attacking itself or because you have “bad” genes. You, like most people in the world today, likely have heavy metals in your body that need to come out. There are five critical foods that you can consume daily to pull heavy metals out: cilantro, wild blueberries, Spirulina, Barley Grass Juice Powder, and Atlantic dulse.

Here’s a quick look at some of the properties of these five foods:

Spirulina: This edible blue-green algae draws out heavy metals from your brain, central nervous system, and liver, and soaks up heavy metals extracted by barley grass juice extract powder. Take 2 teaspoons mixed in water, coconut water, or juice.

Barley grass juice powder: prepares the mercury for complete absorption by the spirulina. This nutritive grass has the ability to draw heavy metals out of your spleen, intestinal tract, pancreas, thyroid, and reproductive system. Drink 1-2 teaspoons mixed into coconut water or juice.

Cilantro: Goes deep into hard-to-reach places, extracting metals from yesteryear (so it’s great for that mercury inheritance you’re carrying around!). Blend one cup in a smoothie or juice, or add to salad or guacamole.

Wild blueberries: Draw heavy metals out of your brain tissue, healing and repairing any gaps created by oxidation when the heavy metals are removed. It is important to use wild blueberries, as they possess unique phytonutrients with special detoxifying capabilities. The potent antioxidants in wild blueberries help reverse any oxidative damage left behind by the heavy metal removal. This is especially important for your brain tissue—in fact, wild blueberries are the most powerful food for halting or in some cases reversing Alzheimer’s and dementia. Eat at least one cup daily. Note: while cultivated blueberries are nutritious, they lack the metal-drawing ability of the wild blueberries. Wild blueberries can be found in the freezer section of most supermarkets.

Atlantic dulse: In addition to mercury, this edible seaweed binds to lead, aluminum, copper, cadmium, and nickel. Unlike other seaweeds, Atlantic dulse is a powerful force for removing mercury on its own. Atlantic dulse goes into deep, hidden places of the digestive tract and gut, seeking out mercury, binding to it, and never releasing it until it leaves the body. Eat two tablespoons of flakes daily, or an equal amount of strips if it’s in whole-leaf form. Note: As it comes from the ocean, if you are concerned about the dulse itself having mercury, be aware that Atlantic sea dulse will not release any mercury it might possess into the body. It holds on to the mercury as it works its way through, and even grabs onto other metals along the way and drives them out as well. Atlantic dulse is a critical part of the team because it can hang out near the finish line (i.e., our colon), waiting for the other foods that have been grabbing on to heavy metals along the way. It serves as emergency backup, helping ensure that all the heavy metals that made it as far as the colon actually leave the body.

Start with adding just one at a time to your daily food intake.  You always want to make sure you do not have any reactions to a new supplement.

Along with whipping up a daily smoothie, drinking celery juice in the morning is highly beneficial. The mineral salts in the celery juice give extra support to the five heavy metal detox foods by helping to flush metals out of the liver.

While you work to detox heavy metals, you MUST eliminating eggs, pork, and any dairy products from your diet. If you love animal products, try to lower your intake of free-range chicken or grass-fed beef to once a day, and if you’re vegetarian or vegan, lower your plant-based fats. These dietary changes will help with the process of drawing heavy metals out of the body. At the same time, fill your body with an abundance of fruits and vegetables so that as you heal you feel nourished and satisfied and gain their healing benefits also!

The Way Forward
Like all elements , it is important that you and your loved ones become aware of the toxic heavy metals and the destruction they can cause. This condition is passed down and the more meat, eggs and dairy you intake, the worse it becomes.

We can’t heal unless we know what’s behind our conditions and symptoms, so this information is truly crucial. If you suffer from any heavy metal-related symptoms, start incorporating the five heavy metal detoxifying foods listed above every day. Anyone can benefit from simply adding in these five foods for all their other nutritional and healing benefits also, so feel free to whip up extra smoothies for your family and friends to support their health even more.

HWA – Australian police can kidnap people for medical reasons and remove anything “including underwear” to forcefully administer vaccines

Image: Australian police can kidnap people for medical reasons and remove anything “including underwear” to forcefully administer vaccines

Australia’s Public Health Act of 2016 has been updated, and it is being put into action, unleashing medical police state horrors that haven’t been witnessed since the rise of medical experimentation on Jews in Nazi Germany. This Australian law gives sweeping new powers to law enforcement and other “authorized officers” to forcibly restrain, isolate and vaccinate whomever they want. The new powers are so descriptive, they give law enforcement the legal power to “remove anything the person is wearing, including underwear.”

Australian officers can apprehend, detain and restrain adults and children for forced vaccination and removal of clothing

The “authorized officer” can medically kidnap adults or children and force the targeted individuals to undergo medical observation, medical examination, medical treatment or compulsory vaccination. The Australian law allows officers to “use reasonable force” to make sure that human subjects comply with the public health directive. The officers can

“apprehend and detain the person to whom the direction applies” and relocate that person for medical experimentation, the forced removal of their clothes and forced vaccination. The law is broken down into three parts, explaining how authorities can one, apprehend, two, detain, and three, restrain human subjects.

Under Part 11 Division 2 of the serious public health incident powers, the authorities can forcibly vaccinate the subject and “remove anything that the person is wearing.” If the subject refuses to remove their clothing, authorities can rip the clothing from their body, including their underwear.

The stripping of human beings of their clothing and their dignity does not end with authorities abusing adults. The act continues, “If the relevant person is a CHILD or an impaired person, it must (the removal of clothing), if practicable, be done in the presence of a responsible person or some other person who can provide the child or impaired person with support and represent his or her interest.”

These heinous powers of rape and abuse and medical kidnap are openly allowed as long as the government of Western Australia can declare a public health state of emergency, as was done by Australia and most other governments in response to covid-19. Australia, like many other governments, will not relinquish these newly delegated powers easily. As long as humans exist, the threat of a viral infection will linger, and governments will capitalize on this fear to abuse anyone they want.

Forced medical experimentation in Australia violates international treaties

The new experimental drugs and vaccines that are being rushed into existence will be forced onto Australians. Australian prime minister Scott Morrison said a coronavirus vaccine will be made “as mandatory as you can possibly make it.” According to these emergency public health orders, anyone who dissents can be rounded up and isolated, their clothing removed, their body subject to medical experimentation and forced injections.

The Nuremberg code, a treaty established in the fallout of Nazi Germany after the International Military Tribunal, is clear about the necessity of informed consent for all medical experimentation on humans. The Nuremberg code is clear that experiments should avoid physical/mental suffering and injury. Vaccinations will irrefutably be classified as risky medical experiments, and when forced onto humans, they cause physical/mental suffering. For one, vaccinations are liability-free products, whereas vaccine manufacturers are held to no standard at all when their products injure people. Two, vaccinations are not tested against a double-blind saline placebo; and three, no studies are conducted comparing the non-vaccinated and the vaccinated in regard to overall health, strength of immune function, infectious disease incidence, and measurable spread of advertised infectious disease.

With this precedent established and with emergency public health orders being pushed into perpetuity, the people of Australia should fight for their rights before they become even more stripped of their human dignity, their bodies violated, their clothing ripped off, their bodies subjected to the newest tracking technologies and vaccine experiments  of the day.

HWA – WEARING A MASK IS CAUSING A RISE IN LEGIONNAIRES DISEASE

YOUR MASK IS CAUSING A RISE IN LEGIONNAIRES DISEASE

Legionnaires’ disease is a type of pneumonia caused by legionella bacteria.
Legionnaires’ disease doesn’t spread from person to person. Instead, the bacteria spreads through mist, such as moisture on your mask.
You should not catch pneumonia, but bacterial pneumonia is possible.
Adults over the age of 50 and people with weak immune systems, chronic lung disease, or heavy tobacco use are most at risk.
Many people exposed to the bacteria don’t develop symptoms. Those who do develop symptoms may experience cough, fever, chills, shortness of breath, muscle aches, headaches, and diarrhea.
Many people exposed to the bacteria don’t develop symptoms. Those who do develop symptoms may experience cough, fever, chills, shortness of breath, muscle aches, headaches, and diarrhea.
People may experience:
Pain areas: in the chest or muscles
Gastrointestinal: diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting
Whole body: fever or chills
Also common: shortness of breath, coughing, headache, or mental confusion
Legionnaire’s disease can be treated with antibiotics.

HWA – SEX AFTER A HEART ATTACK IS HEALTHY

Resuming Sex Soon After a Heart Attack Might Be Healthy

American Heart Association Cautions Heart Attack Survivors During Pandemic  | EHS TodayMany heart attack survivors worry that resuming sex too soon afterwards might trigger another attack. But new research suggests the opposite may be true.

Research out of Israel finds that resuming a normal sex life in the months after a heart attack may actually boost survival.

Lead researcher Yariv Gerber believes part of the benefit could lie in a person’s mindset.

“Sexuality and sexual activity are markers of well-being,” said Gerber, head of the School of Public Health at Tel Aviv University. “Resumption of sexual activity soon after a heart attack may be a part of one’s self-perception as a healthy, functioning, young and energetic person. This may lead to a healthier lifestyle generally.”

In the study, Gerber’s team collected data on nearly 500 sexually active people aged 65 or under who were hospitalized for a heart attack in either 1992 or 1993.

During a median follow-up of 22 years, 43% of the patients died. But the study found that those who’d maintained or increased the frequency of sex during the first six months after a heart attack had 35% lower risk of death, compared with those who had not.

The survival benefit of having more sex appeared tied to reductions in non-cardiovascular deaths — for example, fewer deaths tied to cancer — the researchers noted.

Of course the findings can’t prove that a return to sexual activity soon after a heart attack directly improves long-term survival — only that the two appear associated.

The new study was published Sept. 23 in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.

As the researchers explained, sex is a form of physical exercise that increases heart rate and blood pressure. And although vigorous physical exertion can sometimes cause a heart attack, regular physical activity can also reduce the risk of heart problems over time. Likewise, sex can trigger a heart attack, but your risk is lower if you exercise regularly, Gerber’s team noted.

“For this and other reasons, some patients [including younger ones] hesitate to resume sexual activity for long periods after a heart attack,” Gerber said in a journal news release.

He also theorized that a quick return to bedroom activity after a heart attack may be a sign of a better overall recovery.

“Improved physical fitness, stronger spouse relations, and a mental ability to ‘bounce back’ from the initial shock of the event within a few months are among the possible explanations for the survival benefit observed among the maintained/increased group,” Gerber said.

“On the other hand, patients who perceive their health as poor might be less likely to start having sex again,” he said. “They may also be less likely to adhere to cancer screening tests and other prevention practices during follow-up. This may explain the strong inverse association between resumption of sexual activity and cancer mortality that was seen in our study.”

In any case, the new findings “should serve to reduce patients’ concerns about returning to their usual level of sexual activity soon after a heart attack,” Gerber said.

Dr. Guy Mintz directs cardiovascular health at Northwell Health’s Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital in Manhasset, N.Y. He wasn’t involved in the new research, but said it should help counter “an old taboo that sexual activity after a heart attack is dangerous.”

Mintz said that the Israeli study did have its limits, however: “This study looked at a younger population, median age of 53, and this does not translate to older patients or women. Women were poorly represented, as 90% of patients were men.”

And he said that following a heart attack, patients should have a frank discussion with their physician about a return to sexual activity, since it “increases heart rate and blood pressure, which can have an effect on the heart.”

Still, for many people, “normalization of sexual activity improves a patient’s sense of self-worth, health and vigor,” Mintz said. So, “an important message here is that re-engaging in sexual activity is not dangerous and will be helpful long term,” he said.
