2020 was something else, wasn’t it? We all know it. How did we ever come up with an episode called The Best of 2020? It’s not about the best moments of the year though, there must have been some of those. We simply took excerpts from three of our most-read episodes and put them together for you. This is episode 287. We cover how to shore up your health following traditional foodways with Sally Fallon Morell. We uncover what some of the driving forces are behind this global crisis with Leslie Manookian. With Dr. Zach Bush, we discuss how to take our health into our own hands, becoming proactive rather than reactive at this time. Let’s dive into the excerpts.
The first stop is an excerpt of an interview with Sally Fallon Morell from episode 232, Protect Yourself from the Coronavirus or any Virus. Sally is the President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, a popular author and speaker, and a long time advocate of Ancestral Wisdom. Sally shares with us practical tips for supporting the immune system from taking one tablespoon of coconut oil per day, to eating liver once a week.
The right diet creates a healthy immune system. If you have a healthy immune system, you are impervious to these bugs or if you get the disease, whatever it is, you have a mild case. That’s doing you some good in some way.
The right diet would include fat-soluble activator.
First and foremost is vitamin A. Vitamin A is our number one protection against disease. This has been known for a long time. It’s fundamental and most Americans do not get enough vitamin A, or they think that they get vitamin A from leafy green vegetables, orange and red fruits. This is not correct. We get carotenes from these foods, but it’s difficult for us to convert these carotenes. We certainly can’t get enough vitamin A or the kind of vitamin A that we need from fruits and vegetables, yet all these newspapers were saying, “Eat lots of fruits and vegetables for your vitamin A.” There’s no vitamin A in fruits and vegetables. That’s axiomatic.
We don’t typically eat the foods that provide us with vitamin A. The basic food that provides us with vitamin A is liver. Vitamin A is stored in the liver. We say, eat liver once a week. It doesn’t have to be a piece of liver. If you don’t like liver, it could be pâté. It could be desiccated liver pills, but you definitely want to have some liver in your diet and take cod liver oil. That’s the other thing that we think is important. Before the second World War before we had antibiotics, cod liver oil was recognized as what gave us protection against infectious disease. There was a huge public health campaign to get everybody taking cod liver oil. My late husband told me that they got their cod liver oil in England through the war until 1953. That protected everyone from measles, the flu and it reduced absenteeism. It was given out in schools and the doctor gave it out. Even if you went to Sunday school, you got your cod liver oil.
How did it fall out of fashion?
Antibiotics came along and they were touted as the new scientific thing. The emphasis on cod liver oil waned. There’s a lot of influence in the background, but it’s a shame because the importation of cod liver oil went down to about 10% of what it had been before.
What other foods contain vitamin A?
Butter, egg yolks, caviar, and fatty fish, but the real high value has come from liver.
You’ve mentioned also that vitamin D is important.
Vitamin D and vitamin A are like twins. They work together. I’m concerned when I’m reading this in the paper, “Take some vitamin D capsules.” This is not a healthy way to do this because every molecule of vitamin A requires vitamin D, and every molecule of vitamin D requires vitamin A. They need each other. If you’re taking a whole bunch of vitamin D, that’s going to deplete your vitamin A, especially if you’re not taking any. The beauty of cod liver oil and also poultry liver is that they come together in the same package. You don’t want to take those capsules, but you do want to have foods rich in both vitamins.
I’m sure this seems so foreign to people because cod liver oil, who’s eating these things anymore? I know we do. The general population, they’re happy to pop some pills because they don’t know.
You can do cod liver oil pills. I urge people to go to our website and get the brands that we recommend because most brands of cod liver oil are highly processed that it destroys the natural A and D in the cod liver oil and synthetic is put back in. We only recommend cod liver oil that’s got the natural vitamins that haven’t been heated. That’s the one thing where we talk about brand names on our website.
Also, caveat fish oil and cod liver oil is not the same thing.
Fish oil is an industrial product. It is boiled for hours at 230 degrees. It’s not a good source of vitamins A and D. They say that it’s a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, but not the way it’s processed. Those will be destroyed by the processing.
What about vitamin C? I’ve heard a lot about vitamin C in terms of it boosting our immunity. Should we get more of that in our diet as well?
Yes, I always like to get it from food and the best source of vitamin C is fermented foods like sauerkraut. There’s ten times more vitamin C in sauerkraut than there is in cabbage. The fermentation process increases the vitamin C and there are fruits and vegetables. Also, if you want to take more vitamin C, I recommend something that’s like a powdered plant that’s rich in vitamin C. It’s the natural vitamin C.
I saw this video talking about how the native Americans in regions where they didn’t have a lot of access to fruit and vegetables would have the glands of the caribou and the moose to get their vitamin C. They got it from that.
The adrenal glands concentrate vitamin C and when they killed a moose, and Dr. Price describes this, they took out the raw adrenal glands and they cut it into as many pieces as there were tribes’ members and everybody swallowed a little piece of the adrenal glands. They said, “That’s how we prevent scurvy, white man’s disease.” They knew how to do it.
Talk to me about bone broth, because I know that’s a healing food to take in. That’s also detoxing and boost immunity.
Bone broth is high in glycine and glycine is our number one detoxifier in the body and it supports digestive health. It’s protective against any kind of disease, especially respiratory disease.
It’s interesting because you know how we always say chicken soup for the sick? Maybe this is why.
It’s a big component of our Wise Traditions diet. Keep on doing it.
We’re not talking the little bouillon cubes.
We’re not talking about the boxes that are sitting on the store shelves. We’re talking about as my husband would say, “Real thing bone broth.” You can buy frozen bone broth. We have lots of brands listed in our shopping guide, or you can make it. We always recommend that you buy a whole chicken, save the bones, the feet, the heads or both. When you have a bunch of bones saved up, you put those in your slow cooker and you make bone broth or chicken broth.
It’s delicious to hear.
It perks you up.
Plus, it makes you look good. I remember when I interviewed Kim Schuette about detoxing and she said that bone broth can help eliminate crow’s feet. We can be beautiful from the inside out because of the glycine, collagen and other stuff.
Bone broth is melted collagen. You need college for your skin, your digestive tract for your joints, your tendons to hold your body together. There’s more collagen in your body than muscle, more collagen protein than muscle protein. You need to feed, support and nourish that collagen. The way to do it is with bone broth.
What about coconut oil?
Coconut oil is a very good fat for viruses. The Coronavirus has a lipid-coated virus. That pegs out with the types of fats that are in coconut oil. The triglycerides in coconut oil. I would have a tablespoon of coconut oil every day, one way or the other. You can cook in it. You can melt it in soups. You can melt it in a mug with a spoonful of molasses and pretend that that’s coffee.
What do you mean by pegs out again?
Several people asked me about it. It’s slang for the die and it comes from cribbage. When you peg out in cribbage you lose.
The coconut oil can kill the Coronavirus?
Yes, it absolutely can.
Is that the same thing as MCT oil?
Yes, it is. The MCT oil comes from coconut oil.
I’ve always wondered if that’s as good.
No, I don’t think so because MCT oil is missing the lauric acid, which is one of the very special fatty acids that are in coconut oil. They take the oil out of the coconut. They removed the lauric acid because they use that in all kinds of cosmetics and things like that. You see sodium lauryl sulfate. Anytime you see laurel, that’s the lauric acid. It’s a twelve-carbon fatty acid and they get it from coconut oil. That’s so valuable, then what’s left is the MCT oil. That’s okay too but the coconut oil is the best.
That takes us to the subject of fats. What is the role of fat in protecting our bodies from sickness?
Especially for the Coronavirus, because it has an affinity for the lungs. The Coronavirus is spread by coughing or sneezing into the air. If their viruses are in that spray, they get into your lungs. The Coronavirus doesn’t infect your gut or your skin. It affects the lungs. The lungs have to be working well. One of the things the lungs need to work is saturated fat. The lung surfactants are two saturated fat molecules joined to phospholipid phosphorus. You need lots of saturated fats. At the same time, you want to avoid the industrial fats and oils
Saturated fat is the kind that is solid at room temperature. Is that right?
That’s right. That’s butter, lard, coconut oil, meat fats, or saturated fat in egg yolks, cream, cheese. All the delicious foods are the foods that protect us against illness and give us healthy lungs.
The next stop is an excerpt from episode number 238, Behind the Coronavirus with Leslie Manookian. Leslie is the writer and director of The Greater Good. She’s also an investigative journalist and the Founder of the Health Freedom Foundation. Leslie reviews surprising data related to the virus and our current health crisis, including the fact that 99% of the people who get the virus require no medical attention, and how the initial computer model predictions of the severity of the pandemic were way off base.
What I talked about with respect to Britain and California that millions of more people have been exposed, but not develop symptoms, it’s not that they’re asymptomatic. Their immune system just took care of it. They don’t have any issue with it. They were more than capable of fighting it off and so they don’t have any problem with it. I’ve read that 99% of the people who get it and get symptoms do respond fine without any medical intervention. It’s only a tiny minority. I’m not downplaying those people who do become susceptible, who do have a comorbidity, or who are elderly. I’m not downplaying any of the illness or the death from it. I am simply questioning whether or not the reaction to this has been commensurate with the risk. I don’t believe that’s the case.
Even Fauci’s numbers have gone down. At first, he was saying, “Millions of Americans get sick,” and now he’s saying it’s thousands. He’s modified his prediction, yet there is this talk still about flattening the curve and extending the lockdown and the social distancing.
Let’s talk about flattening the curve quickly. What we know now from Britain and California is that this is more contagious than we’d expected. Meaning that more people have been exposed to it and it’s less deadly than expected. Although the early numbers were telling us, initially they were saying 8% and 10% mortality rate of cases. They then said 3% to 4% from China. Dr. Fauci has written this in the New England Journal of Medicine that the true death rate is probably closer to 0.1%, which is nothing more than a flu. The question is why is he saying that in private, in the medical field, while he is spreading fear in the public domain? That’s an important question that people need to ponder.
Secondly, we need to understand that the people who are driving the narrative in the media and controlling the narrative in the media oftentimes have a horse in the race. If you look at the first major models that came out, they were released from Imperial College in London. This is the model that says 2.2 million Americans could die and 500,000 Britains. We now know the guy who wrote that. That was used to spread all over the media. Imperial College of London takes money from the Gates Foundation. That man, Neil Ferguson, who wrote the model, walked it back several weeks later and said, “I don’t think it’s going to be that bad.”
He testified in front of parliament. He said, “In Britain, we think that the death rate it’s not going to be 500,000 people who die. It’s going to be 20,000 people and more than half of those would have died anyway this year.” He was off by a factor of 50 and yet no one is pushing this, except that somebody did push it, which is Oxford University. A team of epidemiologists from Oxford pushes back and they thought this was grossly exaggerated. The assumptions were wrong in all these things. This guy, Neil Ferguson, sits on certain committees at the World Health Organization who also takes a huge money from the Gates Foundation.
To play devil’s advocate here, let’s say that Neil Ferguson was simply mistaken. Let’s just say that it’s not because he has a horse in the race, but he made some erroneous assumptions. He then backed up the pedal because he realized, “I was wrong.” Is that a possibility too?
If that was the case, then why didn’t everybody stop the lockdown? Why did they move forward? Why did they get worse in Britain than better?
Do you mean they move forward with the lockdown after he backpedaled?
Yes. Here’s the other thing. I don’t think I fully completed the idea of flattening the curve and whether or not that’s a good thing. The best thing in the world you can do with something that’s not particularly dangerous is to have everybody get it. If everybody who’s not at risk gets it, then they do provide true herd immunity and protect those who are at risk. You have the elderly, those with diabetes, those with heart problems and things like that, the people who are at risk, self-isolate and take care of them. Let everybody else get it and then they’re protected.
Wouldn’t that be the best thing to do? No drugs, no vaccines, no risk to them. The thing is that is not an approach that sells a lot of vaccines. You need a lot of fear generally to sell vaccines. That’s what happens. Frighten people and they’ll take it. They’ll demand it. They’ll beg for it. Following up on your point about Dr. Fauci, what he said about not wanting people to develop herd immunity, to me, that lets the cat out of the bag. He doesn’t want the herd to immunity to develop in the population. Why would that be the case? It’s because they want a vaccine. He is developing one of Gates’s vaccines in his own group at the National Institutes of Health, which has taken $100 million from Gates.
I’m surprised Gates is such a big player in all of this. Didn’t he just have his tech company and then the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation? How did he become involved in all of this?
Many years ago, Microsoft was the subject of major antitrust lawsuits in both the United States and Europe. They were dragged in court in front of the Federal Trade Commission and the European Trade Commission for their anti-competitive practices. They were threatened with being broken up. The reason for this is because Bill Gates is reputed to be a very mercenary businessman. He did things that were incredibly anti-competitive. He was operating as a monopoly and trying to put any competition out of business. They were going to break up Microsoft. What happened was they got a small fund. I think it was $300 million or $400 million. He was forced to step down as CEO.
He stayed on as Chairman of the Board. Right after that, within a year or two, he started doing all of this philanthropic work, interestingly. That was when the Gates Foundation began and they started putting billions and billions of dollars into it. I don’t know what’s in it now, if it’s a minimum of $60 billion. I think it’s more like $80 billion, $90 billion, something like that’s in there. The timing of Gates stepping down from Microsoft board and from Berkshire Hathaway, which is Warren Buffett’s board is very interesting. It’s also interesting that Sergey Brin and Larry Page who founded Google stepped down in January from Google. I find this all interesting. A lot of CEOs have been stepping down in the last few months.
What do you make of that, Leslie?
I don’t know, Hilda, I’m not going to even speculate. I find it peculiar with respect to Larry Page and all these others. With respect to Bill Gates, it’s clear that he wants to work on his little baby, which is vaccinating the population that’s the true objective.
The truth is most people hear the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and they don’t know what they’re about There’s a history and it’s not a pretty one of what he’s been doing with forced vaccinations in India and in African countries. Maybe we’ll put a link so people can pursue that more because time doesn’t allow us to go into that very much. What I have heard him saying about our situation in the United States is he thinks we have to sooner or later either have to have some certificate proving that we’ve either had the Coronavirus and dealt with it, or we have to have a certificate proving that we’ve had a vaccination.
Let me break it down for you because I can do it very quickly. The Gates Foundation started the Gavi Alliance, which is a Global Alliance for Vaccines. They gave him $750 million to get going. They’ve given him a couple of billion dollars since then. The Gates Foundation funds vaccine makers all over the world. The Gates Foundation gave $100 million to the National Institutes of Health in the US over $13 million to the CDC. They gave $229 million to the World Health Organization in 2018 alone. They gave $1.5 billion to the Gavi Alliance between 2016 and 2019.
The Gates Foundation and the Gavi Alliance are in the top four of all donors in the entire world to the World Health Organization. It goes top 4 or 5. The US is number one at $280 million roughly. The Gates Foundation is number two at $229 million. This is for 2018 alone. The UK is behind the Gates Foundation. I believe Gavi is next at $158 million or $153 million, and then Germany, or maybe Germany comes right before Gavi, but it’s right around there. You’re talking about Bill Gates has given so much money to the World Health Organization that he gets rights that only voting member countries get. He has tremendous influence. The same guy that wrote the model at Imperial College in London sits on all these different boards at the World Health Organization, modeling things and creating these plans for pandemic preparedness. There’s a big tangled web here.
Zach Bush offers some simple tools, including gardening and connecting with nature that will help make us more resilient at this time. Batting cleanup is Dr. Zach Bush. Zach is a well-known physician, international educator, and thought leader on the microbiome. He has a wild prescription for us for how to restore our health and the health of our planet. It has to do with reconnecting with nature and one another.
Everything we’ve talked about so far from the pollution to the Coronavirus, to a bacterial communication network and microbiome, that’s all in the biology field. Biology is the visible portion of life, but it’s not the fabric of life. The fabric of life is atoms and the atomic structure. Atoms are extremely minuscule, little energetic events that are happening all the time. They organize themselves into different structures that we call the periodic chart. These periodic elements are arrangements of protons and electrons. In that, they function as little gravity centers that create density through the organization of space.
The atomic structure of humans is the same as that of a rock. It’s the same as the table and computer in front of you. These are all reorganizations of atomic energy. At the atomic energy level, we are also invited to interact and be in a cocreative process. A hug is an extraordinary avenue into an energetic atomic experience, every split of a millionth of a second, you’re exchanging electrons with your environment. When you go to give a hug, you’re swapping electrons. You’re exchanging data of your experience of your day. The love you may feel for that individual, the tiredness that might be in your bones from your incredible output, or your stress fatigue from financial stress, child stress, and everything else going on in your life.
You’re exchanging that data when you get a hug or you give a hug. It’s a powerful way to update one another software with the information that we’ve received. That hug is your optimal update procedure in the day. If you’re going to reboot your computer and update the software, make sure you get in a hug or seven of them in a day to improve your function. This has an immediate effect on our immune system. As we talked about this fragility of human immunity and mortality from otherwise benign signals like viruses are happening because we don’t have enough resilience. That lack of resilience is from a lack of communication.
You need that hug. Studies show that if you get more than seven hugs a day, you have a 30% less likelihood of ever having flu. There’s this beautiful interaction between the human immune system, the microbiome, and the energetics of hugs that start to create this matrix of communication. The hug, you’re communicating at the electron level, the exchange of genetic information. That hug also happens where you can swap microbiome on the skin. You can swap it in your breath, and that’s extremely important. The more robust you get in the exchange of information at the microbial level, the stronger your immune system function is. The more clear the immune system understands how to operate within the matrix of millions of foreign species that are interacting with your body all the time appropriately. That balance is achieved through biodiversity, not through isolation. A hug is a critical tool for healing. It’s a critical tool for communication, a critical tool for updating our own consciousness and exchange of respect for one another.
Even if we don’t know or understand all the physiology that you described, we know that it feels good. There’s something powerful that happens when we connect with each other. I’m thinking of a person who lives all by herself. She feels like she’s dying emotionally because maybe physically she’s not getting that information exchange. She’s not getting all of those electron interactions that she needs.
That’s definitely happening all over the world, and tragically in ICUs. This is the biggest humanitarian crisis I’ve ever seen in healthcare. I’ve never seen a situation where patients are dying alone in ICUs. That has never happened in my experience. In our lifetimes, we’ve never seen this level of fear-induced over something that’s harmless than most people that will see it. It’s a virus that is out there and it’s harmless to 50% to the point they don’t even have symptoms. Another 40% will have mild to moderate symptoms. It’s 90% completely benign. It’s dangerous to 0.1% of the population and yet we’re treating this thing like it’s some horrible variation of Ebola or something.
We’ve adopted that belief because of the misled medical treatments that are increasing mortality in our hospitals. New York hospitals are the worst place in the world to have COVID because there’s an 88% mortality rate. Nowhere else in the world have we seen that level of mortality. It’s because we’re using the most extreme measures for isolation that’s ever been witnessed. The more isolated a system gets, the more dysfunction it’s going to have. What that woman is experiencing is a version of that. If we look at physics, it’s coded right in the matrix of the scientific laws.
The Second Law of Thermodynamics, which is one of the most tried and true that we have in scientific experimentation. It is a profoundly simple statement. The Second Law of Thermodynamics said, “Any system put in isolation will increase its entropy.” Entropy is a physics term for chaos. Any system put in isolation will increase its chaos. That is a phenomenally fascinating and bizarre truth that nobody has figured out why that is. If you take an atom, a molecule, a human cell and put it in isolation, it increases its chaos level. In fact, cancer is a cell left in isolation. You can’t get cancer until that cell is completely isolated from all of its neighbors.
It then goes into a proliferative state thinking it’s the last living life form to carry on its genomic code. A cancer cell is a desperately lonely cell trying to do damage control and trying to replicate itself before it dies. That’s as true on the deepest level. This woman is now experiencing that in isolation. She is increasing chaos. We’ve seen this as a form of punishment for thousands of years. The most severe punishment we can give is solitary confinement. We’re doing it to our elderly and our most vulnerable populations.
We’re doing it to our children who are now isolated away from their friends at the most important time. Socially, for many of these kids that are graduating from high school and college in isolation taken out of some of their most formative social experiences for some completely theoretical fear at this point of death. No college kids have died from this and any sort of healthy state. You have to be profoundly disadvantaged at the biologic level before this has any threat to you under the age of 50.
Hug someone today! A hug is vital for healing, communication, and diversifying our microbiome. Plus, it just plain feels good! 🙂 @DrZachBush reminds us of this powerful healing tool in this “highlight reel” episode, featuring excerpts from our most listened-to shows of 2020.
That brings me to the point. One of the fears I see among all of my healthy friends is they’re afraid that they’re going to give it to someone because they consider themselves asymptomatic carriers or they’ve heard that term. Is that a misunderstanding as well?
Yes, that was the fear paradigm right there. Humans are not the mode of transfer of viruses in all of history. Humans are late to the show. We’ve only been here 200,000 years by the fossil record. Planet earth has been here for 4.5 billion years. The first viruses that we can track back through the fossil record rest somewhere around 3.5 billion years ago. There were 3.5 billion years that passed before humans showed up with viruses, creating life and life abundantly all over the world and creating an adaptation, bio diversification, and all of this. We are not the primary vector for viruses. It never happened.
We support one another through the communication of the virome. We don’t make each other sick. We are passing information along. If that information is then poisoned with a toxin in the air pollution or otherwise, then it could cause some harm, but you aren’t the vector. It’s the nature around us. How should we interact with the elderly and vulnerable? We should take them to a national park and spend the day out in the fresh air with them, if at all possible. If not, if you need to go visit them in the nursing home or some other environment, make sure it happens outdoors.
Your risk of having some abnormally dense amount of viral production affecting their lungs drops to infant testimony low experience. You want them to have the microbiome and biodiversity around them. Whatever virus may or may not be present around you, your loved ones or whatever becomes a tiny part of the puzzle. If you walk into an isolated room, you spend a few hours there and there’s no fresh air put into that space now, a virus can become abnormally consolidated and present some sort of risk. Especially if the person is on medications like statin drugs, ACE inhibitors and the likes.
The cardiovascular patients and all of them, are they vulnerable? Yes, because of their pharmaceutical predisposition and because of their isolation away from nature. If you’re going to go and engage with the elderly, get them outside, get them out in a wheelchair, push them out into the yard, enjoy space and time with them. It takes a considerable amount of time together. Meaning, hours to days before there’s any real risk. In South Korea and Italy, there have been many reports that have come out around the world that even healthcare workers that are in and around these patients that are dying from COVID in 12, 14-hour shifts are not getting sick.
There wasn’t a single possible acquired case of COVID noted in these hospitals. That’s unusual. Most viruses you’ll see are hospital-acquired. What is suggesting is COVID is harder to get in short-term contact with one another than ever before. People say, “That’s because they’re taking all of these measures in hospitals.” No, the measures in the hospitals are making things worse. In places like cruise ships, we see an extremely low fatality rate because they’re on a ship out in the ocean, they’re away from pollution and they’re safe. We see the average age on the cruise ships that came into Oakland for example, that ship had 3,700 people on it.
One-third of the ship was tested to show that there was at least 10% of the total ship that had become infected with COVID, yet only three people ended up dying. They didn’t end up having any acute illness leading to hospitalization or death until after they had left the ship after fourteen days of quarantine. They had gone through the whole course of COVID, had come out the other side of COVID and were having some respiratory symptoms when they left the ship. They were then put into army tents and all of this toxic air of Oakland.
They got progressively sicker over the next few days and weeks after they already had COVID and passed through their system. They’re dying from respiratory failure from secondary pneumonia and all that. That were acquired in the hospital care and all of that. We have to critically look at what is causing the virus to spread and is it a bad thing? The virus doesn’t seem to be a bad thing. The bad thing is the toxicity on the other side. That’s pharmaceuticalized patients. There’s clear drug predisposition here, ACE inhibitors, which are common blood pressure medication and statin drugs both up-regulate abnormally the receptor for the virus.
The virus carries in the air pollution content like cyanide, and you get a hypoxic injury. It’s not because of the virus, but because human biology has been screwed up by the pharmacy. The virus then carries in human toxicity on the back end of it. Suddenly you have a life-threatening event. The virus is playing a small role in that. I would say a very benign role in that. It’s just doing what it’s supposed to, which is entered through the ACE2 receptor in the lungs. That’s how it’s supposed to do. That’s how we’re supposed to get this genomic update. Yet we’ve abnormally created an abnormal landing place for those by pharmaceuticalizing the lung. We’ve created a toxic potential for complications in the hospital systems.
