    Your body has two phases, one is fight or flight and the other is calm and relaxed. In the fight or flight stage, your body tenses and gets ready for some sort of action. By shutting down the immune system, sending blood to the organs and muscles. The second stages is when your body is calm and relaxed, this is when the immune system and the repair system goes into action. Increasing the defense system in your blood to fight disease and repair parts of your body which may have been injured.
    Example: If you had a disease, like a cold, flu, diabetes, or any other and a lion walks in thru your front door. Would your body be worried about the disease or would it be concerned with the pending danger?
    Most medical doctors will tell you when you are sick, take it easy or even go to bed. They know how your system works and when it is helpful to rest.
    Society is not very good at keeping you healthy, as they want you worried about paying your bills or the next virus that is headed you way. Society is full of these little traps put out for you, like the media has divided you into segments: Race, Religion, Class, Political Affiliation, Gender, and the world climate disaster, all to keep you in that fight or flight point of view.
    Think of the multibillion/trillion dollar business treating your ailments. They do not want you healthy, it is bad for business. Knowledge is power more you understand the healthier you will be.

    In many aspects allopathic medicine is analogous to a religious organisation.

    There are ancient practices/medicaments relegated as folk medicine then it's efficacy is virtually ignored.

    The trend to investigate genetic manipulation as a source for solutions to relatively simple issues is akin to using nuclear armament for insect extermination.

    Good observation Martin. Self preservation makes us vulnerable. The repetitive articles you read on diet, exercise and the necessity for eight hours of sleep is amazing.
    Even at my age of eighty seven, waiting in the departure lounge doesn't stop me taking supplements and worrying about the increasing number of ailments that come with ageing. You are right about the value of relaxation. I took up trancendational meditation twenty years ago. It took some time before its effect became evident, relaxing the mind for forty minutes a day, but all the hang-ups return. I envy those armed with a natural ability to ignore doom and gloom, never looking at weather forecasts or spend hours studying Dr Google. As you say, the commercial world makes a killing exploiting our weaknesses.
    Fortunately advertisers are reined in a bit now. My grandfather was a shoemaker and sold tins of Amovon, guaranteed to remove corns and hard skin. It was successful because it was mainly a caustic skinstripper.

    A study just released from the [WHO] World Health Organization that the death from the corona virus in China where people who had a preexisting problems like [Heart, lung, digestive ailments] before they got the virus and not real healthy. Interesting observation

    Pictures from China show people being literally dragged out of their vehicles, kicking and fighting, and then they collapse (given a shot ?), and look dead. Other horrible pictures show the military going around and literally nailing doors shut in apartment complexes. Whether those people are sick or not, they are going to die a terrible kind of death, and certainly are not getting any kind of treatment if they are sick.
    In December, the streets were full of protest marchers....... now they are all boarded into their homes and left to die.

    The answer to protests and up rising is the corona virus

    Jim, if you see some of the claims advertisers make on various cable stations, and you are even remotely familiar with either Latin or proper names for body parts, you'd see a plethora of con jobs out there and wonder where our government it. I picked up on a few and am appalled to think people get conned out of their money all the time by this or Televangelists.
