There are two main schools of thought on germs, microbes and viruses.
Germ theory blames the germs for the disease.
Clean the Tank theory, otherwise known as Terrain theory, says the disease is coming from the environment. The germs are REACTING to the toxic overload.
In Clean the Tank theory, we focus on cleaning up our internal environment rather than blaming the germs.
This means taking personal responsibility for our health. It can be complicated.
Germ theory appeals to our laziness. We find a scapegoat and then we don't have to take any responsibility for the situation.
If a person is getting colds and flus often, they might consider what they are ingesting. Fast food? Junk food? Processed foods? Chips, pretzels, boxed cereal, cheesy puffs? Low-fat milk? Coffee and donuts?
Or are we eating a nutrient dense Weston Price diet? It's obvious what is the real cause.
I suggest taking a gander at Nourishing Traditions. It can save America.
The adrenal cocktail is all about supporting your adrenals and thyroid.
This involves the electrolytes commonly missing along with real whole-food vitamin C.
A simple recipe includes
This could be taken first thing in the morning or during the day if you've been sweating and thirsty.
Potassium and magnesium are common electrolytes missing in people's diet. You can get adrenal overload and feel tired and low energy. The other main electrolyte besides sodium is calcium, so make sure to get calcium and real Vitamin D plus the other cofactors into the diet. I like cod liver oil for my vitamin D plus A and Green Pasture concentrated butter for Activator-X. You can eat grass-fed ghee or butter to also supply extra vitamin D, A and K2.
The adrenals and thyroid are connected. Support your adrenals to support your thyroid.

Do viruses cause us to get ill?
That sounds like a stupid question to most people and they look at me like I'm a Martian or in need of a psychiatrist!
But in truth, germ theory is only one idea about what causes disease. Another theory, referred to as Terrain theory or cellular theory, says that viruses are created by the body to help clean up toxins. In that school of thought, the virulence of the virus comes from the toxicity of the host. It's like maggots eating a dead squirrel on the side of the road. Did the maggots kill the squirrel? What if viruses as part of our "virome", which includes hundreds of trillions of them, created by our cells, have an important role to play in keeping us healthy?
In our industrial society our nutrition is terrible, we eat a lot of processed junk, sugar, hydrogenated fats, vegetable oils, drink water laced with various pollutants and metals, use bodycare products with chemicals, pesticides on the food, air pollution from factories and auto exhaust, particulates, and high amount of medications with their various side effects.
Blaming a virus is a convenient way to hide our "sins" and find a scapegoat. And the pharma industry makes a killing off the idea, so they have a great incentive to push the virus narrative and fear mongering.
Either way, however, whether you believe germ theory or terrain theory, it can't be ignored that real food provides the vitamins and minerals we need to stay healthy. Just read Dr. Weston Price's book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration to see how remote cultures ate compared to us today. It's night and day. They were not plagued like we are today and they had healthy babies.
I got to thinking about the Biblical character, Daniel, and wondering about why he and his 3 buddies chose not to eat the King's food.
I found a pretty good short essay on the passage: readingacts.com/2020/01/23/daniel-18-16-what-was-wrong-with-the-kings-food/?unapproved=89263&moderation-hash=4dd1bce81ea9d05dc07c1b6d47a9e9e0#comment-89263
The main verse is Daniel 1:8: "But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the king’s delicacies or with the wine he was drinking, so he entreated the chief official for permission not to defile himself."
The keyword in verse 8 is "delicacies". The root word is "bə·p̄aṯ·baḡ", which KJV translates as "meat".
In verse 12 he asks the official, "“Please test your servants for ten days, giving us just vegetables ("haz·zê·rō·‘îm") to eat and water to drink." The word there could be translated as pulse (legumes) or seeds. So seed-bearing foods, ie vegetables, fruits, grains and lentils?
Ancient Babylon was known to eat many various kinds of meats and stews, some of which would be forbidden in Jewish customs. Not knowing what was in the stew, he opted out to avoid unclean foods.
"Ancient Babylonian cuisine was rich and varied, including meat from cows, sheep, goats, pig, deer and fowl, as well as eggs, fish, shellfish and even turtles. Stews were common, with Akkadian records providing 21 different meat stew recipes and four different vegetable stew recipes." (What Kind of Food Did the Ancient Babylonians Eat?)
They also ate a variety of vegetables, grains, pulses, and fruits. These were likely all included in Daniel's diet, which were a lot of tasty foods and he and his buddies could make their own stews. It says they stuck with this diet for his 3 years while being trained in Babylonian customs. It doesn't say whether he ate other forms of meat somehow, because many kinds of meat and fish are definitely allowed in Jewish diet. So we don't know, but it sounds like maybe they didn't. Legumes would provide protein. Insects in the grains and legumes would help provide fat soluble vitamins as long as you didn't rinse them off.
Another aspect to the story is Daniel is a humble guy with faith in YHWH and probably didn't feel right eating rich-man food or drinking his wine, which was probably associated with their idolatrous sexual acts. He identified more with peasantry class and ate like a commoner. “Don’t incline my heart to any evil thing, to practice deeds of wickedness with men who work iniquity. Don’t let me eat of their delicacies.” Psalms 141:4
It turns out, the "peasant food" is actually much healthier. This is like the recipes in Nourishing Traditions.
I like the idea of getting back to cooking our own food and getting away from sugary junk food, fast food and processed foods with preservatives and processed vegetable oils. People are eating the King's delicacies but not getting the raw nutrients they need to stay healthy.
The book of Revelations in the Bible also admonishes God's people to "come out of Babylon so that you do not partake in her sins and in her plagues." We are experiencing plagues of every kind besides a corona virus pandemic, a cancer pandemic, diabetes pandemic, heart disease pandemic, obesity pandemic and on and on. It's all connected.
Nutrient dense diets help protect from toxins.
Saturated fats help protect the electrical "wiring" within the body and from damage by toxins. Also bone/gelatin broths that provide glycine, fat soluble vitamins, pasture raised butter, organ meats, and fermented foods help protect from toxins.
According to Terrain Theory, the main causes of disease are toxins/pollutants and nutrient deficiencies.
Here we see the many kinds of toxins that certain bacteria can secrete, which causes an immune response. Some toxins can be fatal.
The body occasionally removes these toxins as necessary. Toxins in our food, water and air, plus medications, vaccines (metals, adjuvants, aborted fetal tissue, animal tissue), smoking, pollution, pesticides, alcohol abuse, all add to a toxic inner terrain.
Nutrient dense diets with pasture raised animal fats, gelatin broths and organ meats help protect against toxic damage to cells.
"Pasteur’s promotion of germ theory (a flawed notion that he did not so much “discover” as repackage) has remained “dear to pharmaceutical company executives’ hearts” up to the present day,4 having laid the groundwork for “synthetic drugs, chemotherapy, radiation, surgical removal of body parts and vaccines” to become the “medicine[s] of choice.”5 The unshakeable belief that there is one microbe for every illness is so ingrained as the “controlling medical idea for the Western world” that competing ideas about disease causation still have difficulty gaining traction."

Avocados, sweet potatoes, potatoes, coconut water, spinach and more tasty foods. Potassium is a common deficiency and likewise most people get too much sodium. But we actually need twice as much potassium than sodium. This imbalance can lead to edema and high blood pressure. Potassium also needs magnesium for it to enter the cells, so it's a good idea to include high magnesium foods also in the diet. And now you've covered two of the top minerals we need each day, which are also important electrolytes.

After cooking up a turkey in the oven, I use the carcass to make several quarts of broth. Afterwards my dog gets to enjoy some of the softened bones (being careful of the sharp pointy ones). Nothing goes to waste.
I boil the mixtures first with sugar to help extract the juices, then cool and finally ferment with kefir until it's ready in about just a few days to a week on the counter. Then move to the fridge to keep cold and ready to go. You can see I added some anise to the ginger ale and also fresh turmeric root.
I used water kefir to ferment the herbs and spices. It doesn't quite have the flavor of root beer that I remember from A&W as a kid, which is artificially flavored. It is the real deal. I found that mint, birch bark, sarsaparilla, and vanilla give it that root beer flavor. There are some good recipes out there. I'm still perfecting it but it came out good enough to drink. You need at least a cup of dissolved sugar to get 1/2 gallon, I'd say. I don't drink too much at a time because the herbs can be medicinal. I enjoy a small shot at a time, or add some to an electrolyte beverage for dinner to aid digestion. A little can go a long way. Along with root beer, I have plenty of ginger ale on hand, plus beet kvass and pickled egg juice. I have many different fermented beverages to choose from.
I keep an infrared lamp in my office. I turn it on in the morning and enjoy some red light therapy.
It's especially nice In the winter months.
I find the bulbs at the local ranch store in the Spring when they bring in the baby chicks.
The bulb I'm using provides both red and near-infrared light. Both have benefits.

"Research shows Vitamin D helps prevent acute respiratory distress syndrom (ARDS), a common killer in covid-19 patients."

“Go and tell this people, ‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving. ’Make the hearts of this people calloused; deafen their ears and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.” - Isaiah 6:9-10
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

"Every additional month that it takes to get the vaccine is a month when the economy cannot return to normal."
Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci have strong ties to the vaccination industry. They seem very biased towards vaccines, as opposed to other therapies, like Hydroxychloriquine, and also focusing on boosting the immune system naturally with nutrient dense diets, as in the past.
I am skeptical of coronavirus vaccines as one has never been produced.
For more on dangers of vaccinations. check out this page by the WAPF:
I oppose forced vaccinations. If people want to voluntarily take a vaccination, that should be up to them. But do not try to force it upon everyone. I fear they will take it to the point where you may not even be able to go to the grocery store unless you've been vaccinated. Wearing masks to me seems like a trial run of compliance.
This is all another good reason to build a relationship with your local food producers and learn how to grow some of your own food, as well as gaining kitchen skills with processing that food.
Beyond Burger ingredients claim to be lower in saturated fat than real meat. They imply that saturated fats are bad for us. They include cocoa butter, coconut oil, canola and sunflower.
But are these fats really better than animal fats?
The heart's favorite foods are stearic and palmitic acids (research Dr. Mary Enig). These two fats are SATURATED fats and found in animal fats.
Beef raised on pasture with fresh air and finished on grass or even some grains (avoiding soy) to fatten them up (I don't like lean meat), is the ideal. The fat profile in a pasture raised animal is very healthy.
Don't fall for the marketing hype! Cows green the planet when outside on pasture. Alan Savory talks a lot about this.
Also, canola and sunflower rancid easily. It is rancid oils that are of greatest health concern as they do contribute greatly to heart disease.
