Whether you are treating a health problem gently and effectively, or preventing problems, Chinese medicine is the standard.
as Chinese culture continues to spread around the world, Chinese medicine will come to dominate non-emergency health care this decade.
A recent study from the University of Colorado at Boulder concluded that rapid universal testing is far more important than precise testing, in the effort to fight the pandemic, and could in fact end the pandemic in weeks. A recent study from Duke University Medical Center found that aggressive covid testing and surveillance almost eliminated infections on campus.
Researchers are working all the time to develop faster, easier testing methods.
The rational, humane answer to this and all future pandemics is to train testers and station them at the entrances to all public buildings, businesses, and events. If you test negative, you can go in. If you test positive, you are refused entrance and advised to self-isolate or seek medical assistance.
All sectors of the scientific and medical communities are flooding the internet with reports on the non-covid disaster engulfing us.
Krystal and Saagar report on a new study showing that "deaths of despair" are hitting working people of all races. A study of non-covid deaths shows a 2020 increase in several demographics. An 'alarming' COVID-19 study shows 80% of respondents report significant depression. Teeth grinding and facial pain increase due to coronavirus stress and anxiety. Social isolation during the pandemic is linked with high blood pressure. Social distancing is increasing loneliness in older adults. Another study demonstrates a significant psychological toll from the New Zealand covid lockdown.
Mental health and physical health are of equal importance.
Hot or cold weather alone has no significant effect on COVID-19 populations, according to a recent study from the University of Texas at Austin.
What they fail to explain is how contagious diseases spread so easily during the winter.
Your wei qi (immune factors) is constantly doing double duty. First it must protect your organs from any temperature less than 98.6 F, which to say, 24/7. Second, they must do battle with any invaders such as viruses and bacteria. If the cold temperature distracts your wei qi, invaders can slip by the outer defenses and enter the organs where they can do maximum damage.
This is why it's wise to bundle up in cold weather, and especially to protect the back of your neck, favorite invasion route for evil cold.
In advanced industrial countries such as the US, a steady diet of filtered water and organic food will weaken the wei qi and leave the person susceptible to disease like cancer, for example. Nothing gets stronger unless it is challenged. Chemical and even biological impurities in water and food will strengthen the immune system. This has been clearly pointed out in Chinese medical literature, and is the reason ancient kings of many nations took small amounts of poisons as insurance against attempted assassinations.
A study from Smithsonian shows that just before anatomically modern humans came on the scene 300,000 years ago, the times they were a-changin'.
Today in the world, we are witnessing the same scale of change. It will end with humans evolving into an entirely new form of life.
A new study from Tel Aviv University indicates that hyperbaric oxygen treatment extends the lives of cells by lengthening DNA telomeres and by helping to evacuate material from dead or diseased cells.
This finding suggests a lengthening of the human lifespan is a possibility.
