The Truth About Breathing
- Created on Friday, 03 September 2021 06:24
You know that the working of the heart is autonomic. You don’t control it. You don’t start it, and you don’t stop it. Its operation is controlled by complex and overlapping mechanisms within your body. The same is true of your breathing. The difference is that you do have veto power over your breathing. You can stop it, and you can start it again. But 99.99999% of the time, you are not thinking about your breathing, and your body just does its thing.
However, it’s not as simple as that because breathing involves the use of skeletal muscles, and we are all very much subject to habit in the use of our skeletal muscles. So, the result is that, most of the time, we breath without thinking about it, and without being consciously aware of what we’re doing, and we are just doing it according to whatever habits we have.
But, let’s say you have Covid, and you are having trouble breathing, and it feels like you’re not getting enough air. What happens then? What usually happens is that the person panics, and they try harder to breathe. They may start gasping and straining to breathe. They may start trying very hard to suck in air. And all of that just makes the problem worse.
There is a process involved in breathing, and it is not true that if people need to get more air that they know how to do it, that all they have to do is try harder. They don’t understand how breathing works, and they don’t understand what they need to do, and sad to say, their doctor probably doesn’t know either.
This is an area where doctors are like cavemen; and they don’t have a clue. It really is a case of the blind leading the blind.
The first and most important thing to realize is that you can’t do your breathing. You can’t take a breath and do it well.
You have to realize that there are different kinds of muscular action. If for example, I want to flex my arm, I can willfully bend my elbow, and it is something that is under my direct control. However, using your muscles of respiration is not like flexing your arm. You can’t do it willfully and decidedly and get a good result. Some actions you just have to let happen and make sure you are not sabotaging and interfering, and that is true of breathing.
The action of breathing is a reflex action. What do you think of when you think of reflexes? Perhaps you think of the patellar reflex, when the doctor taps your quadriceps tendon and your lower leg flies up. What causes it to do that? You didn’t do it, right? It happened because the muscle contracted, but it was a reflex; a stretch receptor reflex that sent a signal to the quadriceps muscle to contract.
That’s how the muscle action of breathing is except more complex. You can’t “do” the knee jerk reflex, and you shouldn’t “do” the reflex actions of breathing either.
So, you have a Covid patient who is struggling to breathe and trying, in vain to take bigger breaths and faster breaths. So, what do doctors do? They offer them ventilators. “You’re getting tired, Mr. Jones. You can’t keep this up. You need to let us knock you out and ventilate you, and then our machine will do the breathing for you, while your lungs can get some good rest. Doesn’t that sound grand?”
Let me tell you, it ain’t grand. If the person is unconscious and not breathing at all, where the respiratory center in the brain isn’t sending signals to the respiratory muscles, or if there is a problem at the neuro-muscular junction where the muscles aren’t responding to the brain signals, then you have no choice. But, if the person is conscious and breathing, and it’s obvious that there’s nothing wrong with their respiratory muscles- and remember the young doctor on Youtube who became a national sensation when he said that there is nothing wrong with the breathing muscles of these Covid patients- then you don’t offer to knock them out and put them on a ventilator. You might want to use a nasal canula, which could have two effects: one to deliver more oxygen, and two, to deliver a powerful placebo effect to get the patient to stop panicking, calm down and stop working against himself.
But, the patient needs help to know how to breathe. It’s not something that they know how to do.
It starts with recognizing the reflex nature of breathing. Sound breathing does not involve sniffing, sucking, and gasping at the air. You don’t have to pull air into yourself. The air is under pressure: atmospheric pressure. All you have do is create a vacuum in your lungs, and the air will, on its own power, enter your lungs. EXPANDING YOUR CHEST IS WHAT GETS AIR IN YOUR LUNGS. The air moves itself. You don’t have to grab it.
And, the only way to get it right is not to take charge of your breathing, but rather, to let the reflex mechanism work, and make sure you are not interfering with it. It starts by paying attention to your breathing. In other words: don’t try to breathe, but also don’t try to hold your breath. Let your breathing happen and pay attention to what you’re doing.
So, let’s look at the process of breathing from a bio-mechanical perspective.
So, what is supposed to happen at the start of inspiration? Well, during expiration, you relax your diaphragm which causes it to pop back into its high, dome-shaped position, which contributes to pushing air out of the lungs.
Now, the way the story goes, according to the ex-spurts, is that inspiration is mostly about the diaphragm descending. Not true. 70% of the expansion of the lungs comes from the lifting and widening of the rib cage. That’s where the greatest mechanical advantage lies. You should think of your chest as a barrel, and it’s the upward and outward movement of the barrel that increases the space within the lungs more than anything else.
So, it is a fallacy to think that normal breathing is “belly-based,” that it’s all about the abdomen moving in and out. You do often see that in people, but that’s because they have so little movement in their thorax. They’re all locked up there, so the movement of the diaphragm gets exaggerated because something has to give.
So, the sad truth is that people often had bad breathing habits before they got Covid, but then they get into worse trouble because of panic. They are trying to breathe more, but they don’t have the slightest idea of how to go about it.
You don’t have to think about taking a breath. Again: the breath come to you. You just have to let your chest expand in all directions to get the greatest capacity change in your lungs. And if you let that happen, the air will come to you- without any expenditure of energy on your part to grab it.
Do you have any idea how much efficient it is to breathe that way?
So, you’ve got this Covid patient who is in a panic because he feels he’s not getting enough air. He’s doing things to try to remedy it, but they are the wrong things. He is making the situation worse; not better. So, he gets to the hospital and the doctor sees him, and all he can think of recommending is a ventilator.
They need to have good respiratory therapists at hospitals who are trained in Alexander Technique, who can work with patients to bring them out of a panicked state, and can do subtle things to coax motion and mobility where it’s needed.
THEY ARE OVERUSING VENTILATORS ON THE COVID WARDS, AND THEY ARE KILLING PEOPLE WITH THEM.
And I am not the only one who thinks so.
Now, listen to this nurse:
So, even though you are breathing well enough to remain conscious and speak, your Covid doctor may advise you to submit to this barbaric treatment. I hope you know what to tell him.
It isn’t Covid, but rather doctors who are causing many of the Covid deaths

“Retired property manager John Leanse never expected that struggling to breathe would separate him so immediately and frighteningly from his wife of 34 years, Julie. The 68-year-old had been coughing and increasingly short of breath for roughly a week when his wife finally convinced him to go to the hospital on March 26. Now, moments after being dropped off at the University of Chicago Medicine Emergency Department – with Julie still parking their car – doctors asked if he would agree to be sedated and put on a ventilator. He had minutes to decide.”
That is the reality for most of the Covid patients on ventilators; they were talked into it. They were conscious, breathing, able to think and speak, and they were talked into being knocked out and intubated. I’m sure they were told that it will “give your lungs a rest, so that they can heal.”
So, they do that to people, and then when they die, they say it was the virus that killed them. Covid took another life; get your vaccine.
This is insane. If anything, you put the person on oxygen. We’ve been told over and over that there is nothing wrong with the respiratory muscles in these patients. They have the ability to expand and contract their chest. The one young doctor went on Youtube saying that it’s more like these Covid patients have altitude sickness, that there is nothing wrong with their breathing muscles. So, why replace their breathing muscles with a machine?
I curse the stupid ignoramus doctors who do this.
Being put on a ventilator: Why I would never consent to it
- Created on Monday, 30 August 2021 06:57
I would NEVER go on a ventilator. I suppose if I were unconscious, it might happen because I had no control. But, the vast majority of Covid patients on ventilators weren’t unconscious to begin with. They were conscious when the doctor recommended that he render them unconscious and ventilate them, and they frickin' agreed to it!
You realize that to be ventilated you have to undergo general anesthesia. Then, they have to sedate you further with other drugs. They also have to give you paralytic drugs to paralyze your muscles so that your respiratory muscles don’t interfere with the machine that is forcing air into your lungs. There is a great likelihood of damaging the lung and causing infection. It can also result in gangrene of your extremities.
I know of a 7 year old boy to which this happened. He was ventilated, not for Covid, but for another infection. The result was that he had to undego the amputation of both legs and part of one arm, all the result of being ventilated. Can you imagine what his life is like today? I don’t have to imagine it. I get to see it. He is a friend of my grandson’s.
You know, I don’t think life is going to be that easy for kids going forward, the way things are today. But, imagine how they are going to be for him. He’s 8 now, but if he reaches his teens, and his hormones start flowing, and he becomes interested in girls, what’s that going to be like for him? Can you imagine the misery that lies ahead for him? And what can anybody do about it? Nothing.
Here’s a study that found that 84% of ventilated patients age 70 and older died in the hospital.
I’m over 70. So, why would I consent to be ventilated?
This article reports an overall death rate among ventilated patients of 88%.
Now listen: I’m not interested in telling anyone else what to do. I just want to tell you what I would do- for me.
First, if I am conscious and alert, I must be getting enough oxygen. It may be below normal, but my brain is being supplied. So no matter what they tell me about how dire and dangerous it is, the fact that my brain is working tells me that I’m above the threshold.
Second, if I can talk, then I know I’m breathing. Talking is a modified form of expiration. And you can’t expire unless you previously inspired To take a patient who can talk rather normally and then knock them out to put them on a ventilator? That, to me, is medical assault. I consider it a crime.
Why put them on a ventilator? If anything, you just put them on oxygen. You don’t knock them out, paralyze them, and cram a tube down their throat, so that a machine, in a very damaging way, can force oxygen into their lungs.
And the whole idea that a person on a ventilator is getting “rest” is language debauchery to the extreme.
Go ahead and read this article:
Most coronavirus patients who end up on ventilators go on to die, according to several small studies from the U.S., China and Europe.
And many of the patients who continue to live can't be taken off the mechanical breathing machines.
"It's very concerning to see how many patients who require ventilation do not make it out of the hospital," says Dr. Tiffany Osborne, a critical care specialist at Washington University in St. Louis who has been caring for coronavirus patients at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
That concern is echoed by Negin Hajizadeh, a pulmonary critical care doctor at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell on Long Island, N.Y.
"We have had several patients between the hospitals across the Northwell system that have come off the breathing machine," Hajizadeh says. "But the vast majority are unable to."
The largest study so far to look at mortality among coronavirus patients on ventilators was done by the Intensive Care National Audit & Research Centre in London. It found that among 98 ventilated patients in the U.K., just 33 were discharged alive.
The numbers from a study of Wuhan, China, are even grimmer. Only 3 of 22 ventilated patients survived.
All the early research suggests that once coronavirus patients are placed on a ventilator, they will probably need to stay on it for weeks. And the longer patients remain on a breathing machine, the more likely they are to die.
"We're not sure how much help ventilators are going to be," Osborn says. "They may help keep somebody alive in the short term. We're not sure if it's going to help keep someone alive in the long term."
Patients need a ventilator when their lungs can no longer deliver enough oxygen to keep the body going. And it's an extreme measure, Osborn says.
"We give sedation so the person goes to sleep. Then we provide a paralytic that stops their breathing," she says.
Next, a long plastic tube is inserted through the trachea and vocal cords. That allows a machine to deliver small puffs of highly oxygenated air to the lungs.
Unfortunately, Osborn says, "the ventilator itself can do damage to the lung tissue based on how much pressure is required to help oxygen get processed by the lungs."
And coronavirus patients often need dangerously high levels of both pressure and oxygen because their lungs have so much inflammation.
Another risk from being on a ventilator is that the tube carrying air and extra oxygen to the lungs provides a pathway for dangerous germs. Many ventilated patients get a new lung infection, a problem known as ventilator-associated pneumonia."
RC: Notice that It says that they give the person sedation so that they go to sleep. Of course, that is a lie; it isn’t sleep. But, it tells you that that the patients were conscious and probably talking too, and they let themselves be talked into this Frankenstinian procedure.
As I said, they would never talk me into being ventilated. If they pressured me to go on a ventilator, I would curse at them. If they told me I could die if I don't, I'd tell them that I could die if I do. But actually, I wouldn’t even be there. If I got Covid, I would just stay home. Why would I go to the hospital? Because I couldn’t breathe? OK, let’s talk about that.
I can remember the last time I got the flu. It was right about the millennium. So, it’s been over 20 years. I stayed home and recovered spontaneously. I was uncomfortable and achy for 5 or 6 days, but I wasn’t struggling to breathe. I never once felt that I was in danger of dying. There was no fear in me at all. I recall coughing, but I was never in severe respiratory distress. I never felt like I was suffocating.
So, what would happen if I got Covid? Well, if it progressed beyond what I experienced with the flu, then it would be a brand-new experience for me. I don’t recall ever in my life being that sick. I have never had pneumonia in my life that I know of.
The point is that feeling sick enough to go to the hospital due to respiratory distress has never happened to me, and I would have to be several times sicker than I’ve ever been to do it. In other words, if I take the sickest I can ever recall being and double it, I’d still stay home.
A vicious cycle sets in with most people. If they think they’re having trouble breathing, that they’re not getting enough air, they panic. And when they panic, they start gasping and straining to breathe, and that just makes it worse. Then they panic more and strain more and it just keeps spiraling down.
They don’t know how to breathe. When they strain to get more oxygen, they wind up getting less oxygen. They are in a state of panic, which only makes it worse.
My problem is that I have no experience with Covid. I’ve never laid eyes on anyone acutely ill with Covid. I’ve spoken to a few people who have had it. One was a cousin of mine who was down for about two weeks. But, he never experienced respiratory distress at all. He had no trouble breathing. For him, it was mainly severe weakness and body aches. In other words, he had flu symptoms, but they think it was Covid. And he did stay home and recover spontaneously without any medical treatment.
Our 63 year old paraplegic governor here in Texas got Covid and never had any symptoms. Then, 4 days later, he tested negative again. And that was it. So, how did he brush it off so fast while previously healthy young people are getting it and winding up on ventilators and dying? How do you make sense of that? You don't. Something is wrong. I recall what Ayn Rand used to say: “When faced with a contradiction, check your premises.”
One thing I do know is that they have killed an awful lot of people with those ventilators.
I’ll tell you what: Next time I’m going to talk about breathing in detail, and when I’m done, you’re going to understand the process of breathing better than most doctors do.
Covid Contradictions are astounding
- Created on Monday, 23 August 2021 01:24
If you don’t know it, I am a filmmaker. I have made three films so far. The first, My Stretch of Texas Ground is streaming on Amazon now. The second, His Stretch of Texas Ground, will start streaming next month. And the third, The Pro Bono Watchman is coming out early next year.
Covid didn’t exist during the filming of My Stretch, but it did during the filming of His Stretch and Pro Bono, and we had to follow Covid protocols, which meant masking all the time EXCEPT when actors were on camera. Then they could do anything without a mask: hug, kiss, fight, whatever. But, as soon as the director yelled “Cut” they had to quickly put their mask back on.
And that included me because I was an actor in The Pro Bono Watchman. This is me acting. I played the grandfather of this 6 year old girl.
But, what sense is there in doing all that masking if you’re going to be exposed to others in front of the camera? It goes beyond contradiction. It’s more like hypocrisy.
And it’s not just on movie sets. It’s in everyday life. A husband and wife get up and go to work at different places; they shop at different places; and they engage with different people all day long. And I realize that there are people who rigorously and relentlessly practice the protocols. But, they are the exceptions, don’t you think? So, when that wife is eating lunch with her co-workers, obviously, she doesn’t wear a mask while she’s eating. But, even when she’s finished eating and is just talking to them, she probably doesn’t put it on either. The point is that when that husband and wife come home at the end of the day, what reason is there to think they are safe from each other? And if you pointed that out to them, they’d probably admit it and say that they are not going to wear a mask around their spouse and kids because it’s too much too ask. They’re just not going to live that way. I wonder if even Dr. Fauci lives that way.
I run a health retreat, and there is no mask mandate in Texas. But even lately, when guests arrive for the first time, they are often all masked up at the front door. They see that I am not wearing a mask, and I immediately tell them that I don’t wear a mask because I don’t believe in it. I add that they are welcome to wear a mask if they want to, but they don’t have to. And the truth is that so far, everyone has had the same reaction, something like “Oh, thank God!" as they rip their mask off. And then they don’t give it another thought for the duration of their visit, and neither do I.
So yes, I have been ignoring the protocols- as much as possible. Sometimes I couldn’t. On the set, I had to mask up when I wasn’t acting, and if I didn’t, there was a Covid monitor who politely said to me, “Ralph, would you please put your mask on?” Or, "Ralph, would you please raise your mask up over your nose?"
And when there was a mask mandate in Texas, for instance to enter supermarkets and other stores and whatnot, I wore it. Today, it’s optional, and I choose not to wear it.
But, I’m sure it’s true that over the course of this pandemic, my actions would be considered reckless and irresponsible. But, I haven’t lost a wink of sleep over it, and I haven’t gotten sick either. And I have been tested for Covid twice- not because I wanted to but because it was required to be on set of His Stretch of Texas Ground and then The Pro Bono Watchman. And I’ll tell you honestly that I’d like to make another film. It’s already written, and I mean to the point of nearly the final draft. It’s called: Joe Haladin: The Case of the Missing Sister. But, I’ll tell you, if we make it, it’s only going to happen if there are no Covid requirements, and I mean none. I’ve had it with that. I'm not doing it any more because I can't take it any more. I am not putting up with it a third time on set.
Governor Abbott got better before he even got sick
- Created on Sunday, 22 August 2021 01:21
They just announced that our Texas Governor is now testing negative for Covid after having tested positive 4 days ago. But, he never developed symptoms, and he said that the reason is, according to his doctors, that he was vaccinated.
But, what reason is there to believe that when plenty of vaccinated people have developed symptoms? If the vaccine prevented symptoms in him, why didn’t it prevent symptoms in them? And he is a paraplegic, so you can’t say it’s because he is so much healthier.
Now, if he had gotten sick, they would have said that if not for the vaccine, he would have gotten sicker. And if got severely sick to where he had to be hospitalized, then they would have said that if not for the vaccine he would have died. And if he died, as some vaccinated people have, then they would have said that his last wish was for everyone to get vaccinated.
They cited some political rally that he went to as the likely source of his infection, as it was crammed with unmasked people. But, he wasn’t that close to them. He was up on the stage. So, he was social distanced. Plus, he was vaccinated.
Then, they tried to link his infection to his having done a photo-op with famed Texas musician Jimmy Vaughn. But, Vaughn’s rep issued a statement saying that Jimmy got tested, and he tested negative.
Any time anyone makes any assumptions about this, they are just playing a mental game- with themselves and others, as they see everything through the lens of Covidism.
We are living in the Twilight Zone, and it is being called science.
New concerns raised about myocarditis from the Moderna vaccine
- Created on Friday, 20 August 2021 16:45
It is now suspected that the Moderna vaccine poses a risk of myocarditis that is 2 ½ times greater than they previously thought. And, we know there has been at least one death from it: a 13 year old boy from Michigan.
I am providing this link in case you want to read the article, but to me, it is disgusting because it’s 99% damage control, trying to deter people from shunning the vaccine.
And, the way that they are looking at it is not right. They see it as an either/or situation. Either you are unlucky enough to have an “allergic” reaction to it (which is a euphemism for it being toxic) or, you don’t have it. But, that’s not the reality. It is far more likely that the overt cases of myocarditis are like the tip of the iceberg; that the severe reaction that occurs in these cases are overshadowing by similar but milder cases of it in, perhaps, millions of others, that go unnoticed.
Since people expect to feel a little bit bad after vaccination, there could be many who write off their tiredness and achiness, lasting a few days, as a normal reaction, when it’s actually a mild case of myocarditis. I know I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again, that most of us go our whole lives without ever developing myocarditis. It’s not a common condition, nor is it an age-related malady. It really baffles me that when these cases occur, the first thing they do is question whether it is related to the vaccine. The extent to which they will bend over backwards to exonerate the vaccine is disgusting.
Case in point is, once again, Dr. Mike Hansen. who addressed the case of the 13 year old boy who died. However, he spent most of the time defending the vaccine, how rare the cases are, how most people get over it in a week or so with minimal or no treatment, and then at the end of it, he finally gets to talking about the boy, and he just said that although there was a preliminary autopsy done, there hasn’t been a final, authorized, official autopsy, and therefore, we just don’t know. He said at the beginning that he was going to give his thoughts at the end on whether the vaccine killed the boy, but he never did. So, for me, this is just more revolting spin.
This is all just pseudo-scientific religion. It’s religion dressed up in scientific jargon. When a previously healthy 13 year old boy dies 3 days after being vaccinated for Covid, you don’t have to doubt whether the vaccine killed him. A temporal association of that magnitude is overwhelming.
And what bothers me most about it is dismissing the value of his life, and I mean to him and his family and friends. Because: the message is that, to help the greater good, we have to be willing to sacrifice a few unfortunate souls. It’s a shame he had to die, according to them, but it’s all part of the advance of Modern Medicine that benefits everyone (else).
I curse them. I curse the day they were born. And I curse the horses they rode in on.
Three vaccinated U.S. senators test positive for Covid in one day
- Created on Thursday, 19 August 2021 21:08
RC: This is just more insanity, and the scary thing is that doctors are leading the way down this rabbit hole. Anybody can get a positive Corona virus test, whether it’s PCR or another kind. And if you are undergoing testing every day, it’s only a matter of time before you test positive. And notice how all three of the Senators were quick to assume that if not for the vaccine, they would be sicker than they are. But, they don’t know that. They, like everyone else, is just choosing to believe it.
And is it sane and rational to subject yourself to all the risks of vaccination, and remember that this is something that is brand new, just in the hope of getting a milder version of the disease when it happens? Imagine if they did that for the other vaccines. “Take the polio vaccine because that way, you’ll get a milder version of polio.” Or, “Get a tetanus shot because that way, you’ll only get a mild version of tetanus.”
When before has a vaccine (and be aware that I am opposed to all of them, and I would never take any of them; I am an anti-vaxxer to the max) been sold as a way to get a less severe case of a disease? But apparently, that is all they can even try to claim now because of the multitude of breakthrough cases.
Here in Texas where I live, our governor has tested positive, but they’re saying that he isn’t sick at all. Still, he is going to take the antibody cocktail that Trump took and probably other drugs too.
I am appalled and most of all at the doctors who are going along with this madness.
Three U.S senators on Thursday announced they had tested positive for Covid in a series of breakthrough infections.
All three senators said they had been vaccinated.
Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi, a critic of mask mandates on planes and trains, has tested positive for the coronavirus, his office said Thursday.
A second senator, Angus King, I-Maine, announced later in the day that he'd tested positive for the virus as well.
Thursday afternoon, Sen. John Hickenlooper, D-CO, also announced that he had the virus.
Wicker's communications director, Phillip Waller, said the Republican senator got tested after experiencing "mild symptoms."
"Senator Wicker is fully vaccinated against Covid, is in good health, and is being treated by his Tupelo-based physician. He is isolating, and everyone with whom Senator Wicker has come in close contact recently has been notified,” Waller said in a statement.
The test results came as Mississippi has been reeling from the Delta variant. The state's top health official, Thomas Dobbs, told reporters on Wednesday Mississippi is currently experiencing the "worst part of the pandemic." “We’re seeing higher and higher numbers of not just cases but hospitalizations, people in intensive care units, life support," Dobbs said, according to the Washington Post.
Early Thursday afternoon, King announced that he too had tested positive for the virus. "While I am not feeling great, I’m definitely feeling much better than I would have without the vaccine," he said in a statement. He said he's quarantining at home, and added that "I urge everyone to remain vigilant, follow the guidance from health professionals, and get vaccinated if you haven’t been."
In a statement, Hickenlooper said: "I've tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19. I feel good but will isolate per docs instructions. I’m grateful for the vaccine (& the scientists behind it!) for limiting my symptoms. If you haven’t gotten your shot — get it today! And a booster when it’s available too!"
Dr. Cinque vs. Dr. Hansen: Round 3
- Created on Tuesday, 17 August 2021 04:30
This concerns another video of Dr. Michael Hansen, defender of Modern Medicine and all things Covid. In this video, he rationalizes the death of the OB-GYN who was apparently in good health at age 56, but suffered sudden destruction of all his platelets after receiving his first Pfizer shot, and died soon afterwards of a brain hemorrhage, despite heroic measures. The paragraph below is the comment that I submitted, although I don’t know how long it’s going to remain there. I expect him to remove it. But, let’s do this the proper way. Go ahead and watch his video and then read my comment. And if you agree with him, if you think he makes more sense, fine; go ahead and get vaccinated. But, I gotta say that I pity you if you do. Here’s the link:
The mistake that is being made here is looking at this in a binary way, that Dr. Michael had an allergic reaction to the vaccine where all his platelets were destroyed, but that if you don't get such a severe, acute, deadly reaction to the vaccine, that you didn't suffer at all. But, that isn't true. I knew a young man who died of cardiac arrest the first time he took cocaine. It was very rapid. It was almost instantaneous. Most people don't die if they take cocaine one time. Many people take it for years. Some even take it for decades. But, it doesn't mean that they aren't being hurt. Cocaine is toxic. It’s toxic to everybody. People have different degrees of tolerance or intolerance to it and other poisons, but the toxic relationship to the organism is a constant.
It was only recently that the incessantly ballyhooed beneficial effects of alcohol were finally debunked, once and for all, when it was revealed that the illusion of benefits was really due to the so-called "sick quitter" effect, that when you compare heart health in lifelong teetotalers to moderate drinkers, the teetotalers win by a landslide. So, there too with alcohol: it's toxic; pure and simple; toxic to everybody. Some people succumb fast to it, while others take longer to succumb, but they're all going in the same direction, and that is down.
And you shouldn't look at this one issue of thrombocytopenia in isolation. What about all the other demonstrable toxicities from the Covid vaccine? What about all the cases of myocarditis from it? -which is something that most people go their whole lives without ever experiencing. What about the post-vaccine blood clots? What about the dozens of cases of Gillian-Barre, some fatal? What about the cases of post-vaccine brain swelling? What about the thousands of post-vaccine sudden deaths that the CDC refuses to acknowledge, let alone investigate?
Look: there are risks in this life that you can't avoid, but the risks of the Covid vaccine is not one of them. And let me remind you that if you take it, you're doing it totally on faith; faith in people you don't know, and faith in institutions you can't trust. I say: have faith in yourself. I am 70 years old, and I haven't gotten Covid- in all this time. And I haven’t been sheltering in place either. I do have faith: in myself, in my body, and in the principles of natural healing. I say pluck the vaccine menace. You have no reason to value it when it's admitted that it does NOT prevent infection; it does not prevent sickness: and all they have to hang their hats on now is the claim that it prevents serious illness and deaths- even though there have been plenty of hospitalizations among the vaccinated (an indication of serious illness) and more than a few deaths. To say that their claims are flimsy is the understatement of the century. But, after reading this, do you still want to get vaccinated? Then go ahead.
But, ironically, tonight's headline is that health experts are going to recommend booster shots for all Americans at the 8 month mark. 8 months? But, what happens 8 months after that? And let me point out to you that anything Dr. Hansen or anyone else says in response to that is pure speculation.
