“Hold hands 🤜❤️🤛 (at a distance) with Science and Spirit together while we find the proper condiments”before taking a bite and drinking the koolaid.”
Tonight I was with My friend who’s a Scientist and married to a immunologist so you can imagine their daily download at night sitting on their deck.
We were of course at least 6 feet back with masks on because if you’re a scientist, you don’t take any chances.
I am a health and wellness professional which requires me to be up close and personal and don’t turn people away if they are sick.
I have always attributed not getting sick very often to that.
My frequency is high, meaning I attune myself daily with universal wisdom as protection with Reiki, meditation, Qigong, yoga, music and affirmations etc.
My theory has always been I’m strong because I have built my immune system up and I do not buy into fear and turn things over to a higher power. Growing up I went to Sunday school at a Christian Science Church and the one thing I took from the teaching was that the body had the power to heal itself through the mind and spirit.
I witnessed some amazing miracles that science can’t explain.
We did and I do see doctors and I’m not a purist by any means of the stretch but those early days left an imprint in my mind and the impact is wide spread in my DNA.
There is a lot of research about how the mind can control the body. Now we are finding the same neuropaths in our heart and belly as in our brain which has only been found more recently.
We can create more telomeres and new neuropathways in these centers boosting our immune function.
I don’t get the flu shot or immunizations unless I might be traveling to a foreign country in which case I absolutely do. I generally don’t take allopathic medication; only alternative approaches such as accupuncture, body work, homeopathic, chiropractic and Craniosacral therapy, unless I need it. It’s not to say that I never get sick because every once in awhile I get slammed and am down for the count for a short stint. I don’t worry because I trust my body knows how to heal itself. You see, we grew up with the 30 sec rule where if something dropped on the floor, it was still good to pop in our mouth. The pacifier went from the floor to our babies mouths several times a day which I attribute to developing immunities.
When I do get seriously injured, I don’t mess around and double dose on my ibuprofen (up to 800 ml… but don’t listen to me on this, I’m not a doctor) to knock the inflammation out quickly.
One dose usually does the trick and since I take it so infrequent, I don’t have to worry about the side effects of kidney, or liver issues.
My friend on the other hand, looks at statistics and shutters over my approach but admits that I have a strong immune system and it works for me. She acknowledges everyone’s constitution is different.
She uses allopathic medicine and gets the flu shot every year and she hasn’t gotten the flu since she’s been getting it.
We have great lively discussions which always ends with each of us shaking our head with data that neither of us agree with (scientists always win out but sometimes even the scientists don’t understand instantaneous healings when data points in a deathly trajectory). While studies often observe positive correlations, we must remember that correlation does not equal causation (as seen by diagram below)… Just like eating ice cream doesn’t cause a sunburn. Although, you may be more likely to eat ice cream in the sun. Does that make sense?
But we respect each other, so it always ends with a hug and now for the last 5 months, a bow.
She studies mutations and connective chains in the body and how pathogens enter the body, multiply and spread in the community and are transferred like lightening.
I study, energy and peripersonal space and metaphysical affects on the body and how mind body and spirit are the medicine that heals the body.
She came to see my for body work regularly until Covid-19 and now we both agree; I’m not touching her right now with a 10 foot pole or anyone else for that matter.
Like all of us we are texting and emailing or at least 6 ft back on zoom in lively discussions and exercise. It’s amazing how many clients I have trained to give their own massages online with a foam roller.
Our scientific, Immunologic, Metaphysical Sandwich has finally blended into a mix we both agree on:
- Keep your mask on
- Stay Home unless necessary
- Stay Strong
- Use Sanitizers
- Wash your Hands Often
I used to move forward when I saw people for a hug and now I back up if someone even comes close to being within 6 foot of me.
Everyone I see gets their temperature taken, answers a questionnaire and is sprayed down with Clorox upon leaving. NOT!
But all sanitation is taken seriously and wiped down thoroughly after sitting out for several days first.
This is an animal we don’t know or understand and this invisible robber of our lungs and bodies is not something we care to find out about in the least.
She will act as a guinea pig and take the vaccine when it is released sometime next year and I’ll wait for 6 months to a year after all of the fall out happens.
I still trust my body over putting something foreign in it before I know the facts and the side effects of the drug. With so many companies fighting to make a buck I will wait until I feel safe and comfortable taking that chance.
Besides, I don’t know the drug companies however, she does, and she trusts science and knows the chemical interaction and effects on the body cellularly.
So, it seems we are finally on the same page of wanting the same thing, with healthy skepticism respecting each other’s Sandwich of a different flavor. I’ll wait until I add any condiments on mine until she has tested the water but remember we both have different immune systems and each will react differently.
We need each other now more than other.
Listening to the science, being smart and safe with no political addenda or mumbo jumbo witchcraft is prudent and necessary to combat this beast.
It’s this kind of respect that keeps us growing individually and as a people. We need each other and if Covid is teaching us anything, it is to be respectful of each other and wear a mask and honor each other’s personal space.
I truly understand people not wanting to wear them.
I don’t love them either but it’s necessary.
You can exercise your freedom if you don’t want to wear them in the confines of your own home.
Thanks so much for reading and liking (if you do of course), commenting and sharing. I truly appreciate your support.
