Your Power is in Your Terrain (COVID-19 Insights + Q&A - July 16 Replay)

I want to thank everyone who joined me on the COVID-19 call last week - your participation was excellent and sincerely appreciated, especially with emotions running high these past few months. As promised, you can watch the replay as well as review some additional information and resources below. Enjoy!


As mentioned on the call (and on the previous one), please take a little time to learn how to think and recognize your own biases when processing so many health and political articles. We typically we make a decision unconsciously very quickly, then rationalize it very quickly to fit into what we already believe, and are too stubborn to change our previous viewpoint or at least shift it slightly. Listen to How To Think (And Avoid Cognitive Bias) In The Face Of Conflicting Health Information with Evian Gordon, M.D., Ph.D. from The Energy Blueprint Podcast on Apple Podcasts. 

Here is the link to the recent TWiV podcast that I mentioned about testing. TWiV episode #640: Test often, fast turn around, with Michael Mina from July 16, 2020. You only need to listen to the part that Michael Mina is actually speaking about testing... not the entire episode. 


Here is a link where you can monitor real time data. You can see that the COVID-19 deaths for Italy, Spain, Sweden and New York are all close to an average of zero deaths per day. Based off of these current numbers and recent T-Cell studies, I suspect that in the next 1-2 months, California may gain true herd immunity threshold as well, which will mean our California deaths per day will also reach close to zero. If there is a significant spike in one or more of those areas, my current theory may be busted, which would be a bummer for all of us, darn it! This is one of the reasons that I still suspect this virus is going to burn itself out like a brush fire eventually, with or without a vaccine. Again, hopefully, for all our sakes this turns out to be true :)

A decent listen for a lesson on vaccines by two brilliant minds, on his Energy Blueprint Podcast, Ari Whiten is exquisitely able to elicit great scientific questions with little bias. Listen to Vaccines – Safety, Efficacy, and Issues with the Science, with Dr. Sherri Tenpenny from The Energy Blueprint Podcast on Apple Podcasts.

Here is a great, simple PDF with good stats by a physician's group who is all about giving people truly informed consent for all medical procedures. 

Air pollution and COVID-19 are clearly associated to some extent. Here is the very recent paper on it: Association between short-term exposure to air pollution and COVID-19 infection: Evidence from China

For this reason, I do believe that breathing clean, nearly pollution-free air for 6-8 hours every night, would be a great idea. Molekule is what I bought for our medical office and my home. Here is a link where you should be able to receive $50 off any purchase, if you're interested (and full disclosure, Oasis will be given a $50 Amazon gift card). Use code: https://share.molekule.com/x/Q5I9YV. Then, you'll likely get your own code that you can send to others to help their TERRAIN :) 

Remember this is a disease of MALNUTRITION and ~99% of folks who succumb to COVID-19 have a poor physiology to begin with. 

So, to improve your TERRAIN to bend the curve:
  • Clean food
  • Clean water
  • Sunlight / Vitamin D (with vitamin K2)
  • ION liquid to help combat glyphosate
  • Air purifier (like Molekule... $50 off link: https://share.molekule.com/x/Q5I9YV

And here's a shameless plug to call the office (818.957.6909) and ask to join the group microbiome module that Tracy and Kellie will lead starting in just a few short weeks. It is affordable and worth it. 

So, use your Terrain to BEND THE CURVE. Stand for your Terrain. Stand for your Freedoms. Stand for other peoples’ Terrains and freedoms. 

Become resilient in body, mind, and spirit.

Be kind to yourself. Be kind to others. Spread love! 

Have a great week, stay healthy, and please feel free to pass this along!

COVID-19 Insights + Q&A - June 4th Replay

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to join me on the latest COVID-19 call - your participation was phenomenal and sincerely appreciated, especially with the uncertainty of the times and emotions running high these past few weeks and months. As promised, you can watch the replay below. I have also included some additional information and resources below. Enjoy!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND RESOURCES:

As mentioned on the talk, please take a little time to learn how to think and recognize your own biases when processing so many health and political articles. Many people typically make a decision unconsciously very quickly, then rationalize it very quickly to fit into what they already believe, and they are too stubborn to change their previous viewpoint or at least shift it slightly. I encourage you to have an open mind: Listen to How To Think (And Avoid Cognitive Bias) In The Face Of Conflicting Health Information with Evian Gordon, M.D., Ph.D. from The Energy Blueprint Podcast on Apple Podcasts.

I voiced my own faulty mask bias :) Please check out this great article on Aerosol vs. Droplets. It's a fantastic read so you can form your own well-educated opinion.

Here's a another great article: Coronavirus May Be a Blood Vessel Disease, Which Explains Everything

This was previously sent out, but I'm doing so again because it's a good overview on how long a vaccine will really take

Last but certainly not least, and as I harped on in the Zoom call... TERRAIN and BEND THE CURVE.

Terrain vs. Germ Theory!!! - This is a great table that explains the differences between the Germ Theory, the Terrain Theory and the Germ Terrain Duality Theory. My take is that it's a spectrum, not one or the other, or exactly in the middle, though admittedly, I certainly lean much more toward the terrain end of the spectrum most of the time. Germ theory completely takes away your power! It takes away your humanness. Your gut has 3-5 lbs. of mostly bacteria, fungi, viruses and other microbes in that gooey mess of goodness. We are NOT at war with one single virus.

Use improvement of your terrain to BEND THE CURVE - that is, to decrease the chances of ANY virus to cause sickness or severe sickness in you. The original goal was to flatten the curve, which was smart initially. NOT NOW. Now it should be BEND THE CURVE.

To improve your terrain: eat right, drink right, breathe right, poop right, move right, sleep right, think right, speak right. That's 8 areas to focus on, so let's call that the Terrain 8. I'd bet a lot of $$$ that 99% of people who get severely ill or die from this particular virus have major holes in their terrain, whether it be from low zinc, low vitamins A/D/K2/C, low selenium, low GSH, poor gut microbiome (75% of immune system!). Probably ~95% of the disease situations we are told (i.e. elevated blood pressure, sugar or weight, or other lung diseases) puts people at higher risk are improvable by improving one's terrain. This is my theory. My bias is that I'm right ;)

Cue the shameless plug to call the office (818.957.6909) and ask to join the group microbiome module that Tracy and Kellie will lead - It is affordable and worth it!

So, use your Terrain to BEND THE CURVE. And, be kind to yourself. Be kind to others. Spread love!

"If love has not yet won, then the battle is not yet over. Pray for change, work for change, be the change." - Martin Luther King Jr. III

Additional COVID-19 Information [podcast link inside]

In addition to the COVID-19 Insights + Q&A calls I have hosted recently, I'd like to share a podcast that explains much of my take on COVID-19. Read the information below and click here to listen: COVID-19 Facts from the Frontline - Facts Over Fear, Part 3: A panel of doctors, M.D.s, and a Nobel Prize winner unmask the science you aren't hearing on TV from The Tony Robbins Podcast on Apple Podcasts.


The information below gives an overview of the podcast, including the panelists and episode notes. I highly recommend listening to this timely and informative podcast. It is well worth your time!

On March 11, 2020, people all over the world were thrust into a new reality when the coronavirus was declared a global pandemic. It was as if the globe had ground to a halt as businesses closed, schools shuttered, and stay-at-home orders emptied city streets. Thousands of lives have been lost; all lives have been changed.

Over the past two months, despite these uncertain and unprecedented circumstances, there have been shining examples of goodness and triumphs of the human spirit solidifying the fact that we as a species are both adaptable and resilient. Scientists around the globe have aligned their focus to find solutions to this challenge of historic proportions, and groundbreaking discoveries have been made. Everyday, we continue to make progress in quelling the impact of this virus and protecting our loved ones at risk.

Unfortunately, much of the COVID-19 news comes to us clouded by the business of mass media which built momentum selling us a narrative of fear.

In this episode, Tony goes on a journey to uncover the truth about coronavirus with a 7-person panel of highly qualified researchers, an experienced epidemiologist, a Nobel Laureate, and M.D.s testing and treating patients on the front lines. Together, they reveal the evidence-based research that has come to light and the emerging facts that you’re not hearing in the headlines that are absolutely crucial in shaping decisions about how to move forward.

This is one of the most important interviews that Tony has conducted in his 40+ year career. It reminds us to stand guard at the door of our mind, practice discernment when determining trustworthy sources, and think critically for ourselves in order to stay flexible and maintain the ability to pivot in light of new information – especially when lives depend on it.

Podcast panelists in this episode include: 
  • Dr. Michael Levitt, PhD, Nobel Prize – Chemistry; Professor of Structural Biology, Stanford University
  • Dr. Eran Bendavid, M.D., Associate Professor of Medicine, Stanford University
  • Dr. Michael Roizen, M.D., Chief Wellness Officer Emeritus, Cleveland Clinic
  • Dr. Alan Preston, Sc.D, Former Professor of Epidemiology & Biostatistics, Texas A&M University
  • Senator Scott Jensen, M.D., Family Physician; Senator (R-Minnesota)
  • Dr. Dan Erickson, M.D., Co-Owner, Accelerated Urgent Care
  • Dr. Artin Massihi, M.D., Co-Owner, Accelerated Urgent Care
EPISODE NOTES:
[00:00:00] Introduction from Tony Robbins
[00:08:30] Interview with Dr. Michael Levitt
[00:27:00] Interview with Senator Scott Jensen, M.D.
[00:39:00] Interview with Dr. Eran Bendavid, M.D.

COVID-19 Insights + Q&A May 14 Replay

Thanks to everyone who joined me on the latest COVID-19 Insights + Q&A call :) It was a great call, and I hope everyone got answers to their questions. If you weren't able to join us, please watch the video below and read through the information and resources. If you did join us, please feel free to share this with everyone you think would benefit from this information. Enjoy!


As mentioned on the Zoom discussion, there's not a single expert or source that I have or do agree with 100% of everything anyone has said.  With that disclaimer, as requested, here are some of my resources as initial starting points:

  • Sam Harris, PhD
  • Peter Hotez, MD, PhD
  • Robert Thompson, MD
  • David Sinclair, PhD
  • Paul Grewal, MD
  • Paul Andersion, ND
Two interviews I found quite interesting:

Zach Bush, MD, on HighWire

Debunking the Narrative (With Prof. Dolores Cahill) 

Also, I don't want to sound like I know it all.  A couple of my favorite quotes as it relates to this pandemic are:

"What we said before might seem foolish now..." 

and 

"All models are wrong, some are useful..."  

Hindsight is still murky on this subject, but I do believe strongly this virus can be dealt with in a sane and relatively inexpensive way that is FAR different than current circumstances allow or encourage.

A few lab tests I mentioned that might be useful to test before deciding exact dosages of said nutrients might include:
  • Lymphocytes - as part of a CBC
  • Vitamins: A, C, D
  • Minerals: Zinc, Copper, Selenium, Magnesium
  • Glutathione
  • Inflammatory makers: Fibrinogen, hs-CRP, Rheumatoid factor, ESR
  • An all-out nutrient test to consider would be a test like Genova Diagnostics NutrEval
Here is the ozone petition that I'd be so appreciative of you signing.  For more on ozone, please look at my blog posted April 27th

Interesting NY Times article: How Long Will a Vaccine Really Take?

Please look into Bill H.R. 6666 (TRACE ACT = Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone).  Like most bills, I agree that certain parts could be useful and certain aspects are likely not (sigh).  You be the judge :)

Great article on how the virus travels in air in different scenarios: "The Risks - Know Them - Avoid Them" https://www.erinbromage.com/post/the-risks-know-them-avoid-them.




My favorite video (from April) that goes along with my main mic-drop point from my Zoom talk "New York COVID-19 Antibody Tests Show SHOCKING Results."  

Quick recap from my own Zoom mic drop... as of May 12th for Los Angeles County (10 million people) had 11% seroconversion (have antibodies already) and 1,613 deaths.  This equates to a mortality rate of 0.14%.  45% of those 1,613 deaths were from nursing homes which would mean that for non-nursing home bound people the mortality rate is closer to 0.08% and even this 0.08% is falsely elevated as the CDC has deemed COVID-19 deaths as both 'confirmed and probable'.  So, WHY are current policies as stringent as they are??? Because current policies sure are not scientifically based!!!

Bottom line, consider being tested for basic labs mentioned to formulate an individualized plan that might also include a high quality air purifier for your bedroom AND consider partaking in the Oasis Group Visits led by Family Nurse Practitioner, Kellie Kell, and Health Coach, Tracy Leventhal. If you have questions about the Group Visits, please contact our office.

Have a great week, stay healthy, and please feel free to pass this along!

COVID-19 Q&A Replay - April 24

I'm happy to say the latest COVID-19 Q&A call was a good one :) and I want to thank everyone who participated. Please watch the replay below.


Below are some additional resources and information on COVID-19. As always, my goal is to get you as much up-to-date and accurate information as possible so you can make educated healthcare decisions.



SARS-CoV-2 antibody testing is now available at Oasis.  Anyone can do it, even if they have not been to Oasis before.  Currently, the lab we are doing it through is not taking any insurance, so we are offering it at cost but are requiring at least a brief consultation with one of our providers to correctly interpret the lab result for you.  We will switch labs if/when there is a better option (taking many variables into consideration).  Our goal is to offer quality testing, not necessary the most convenient testing, as there are potentially important consequences to knowing antibody results and interpreting them correctly.  The lab tests for both IgM (the 'short term' antibody) and IgG (the 'long term' antibody).  Reportedly, this test is not cross-reactive to the other common cold strains for coronavirus (HKU1, NL63, OC43, or 229E).  This test should only be done in asymptomatic people and blood test results are reportedly available in 3-6 days.  
As I mentioned in the Zoom meeting, here is the ozone petition that I'd be so appreciative of you signing. Medical ozone used properly is simple, safe (so safe, it's not even funny), and effective (amazingly so). The site also has some good links showing just a small sampling of encouraging results in case anyone wants to browse a little further before signing the petition.  In case you want to learn even more about ozone before signing, check out these resources:
I hope this information is helpful to you. Have a great week, and please feel free to pass this along!
