So, I feel like I need to say something regarding Dr. Immanuel’s “speech/testimony” on YouTube. The problem with her message is that she totally discounted and disregarded the public health message for COVID-19 prevention. She said don’t wear masks. She said there is a cure.
First of all, if there is a cure, people would not be dying. But what’s most harmful with her message is when she’s saying don’t wear a mask. So, she is assuming two things:
- Everyone has access to this “cure”. We have to remember that everyone does not have healthcare access even if there is a cure.
- She’s assuming that people want to get sick because there is a cure.
I don’t know about you, but even if she has a “cure”, I don’t want to get sick! On top of that I can’t afford to get sick! Do you have 3 months out of your life to recover from this Covid disease? And that’s a minimum 3 months to recover… if you recover completely from this disease. It’s just like saying oh, we have a cure for syphilis. So, go around and have unprotected sex because we have a cure for syphilis, or any other STD for that matter (but there are no cures for some STDS… we won’t get into that at this time). Now do you wanna go ahead and catch syphilis because they have a cure? If you want to catch syphilis because they have a cure then that’s a whole other discussion that we have to have.
But I say all this to say that public health messaging is critical to supporting the health of our nation. We must protect individuals from getting the disease in the first place.

I really wanted to talk about this topic today because your natural health and wellness is important. You can adopt healthy lifestyle practices that improve your health and enrich your life, which can in turn improve the lives of those close to you. You have the power to break the cycle of poor health, including chronic disease, so that you can leave a legacy of health to your loved ones.
I use lifestyle medicine as the first line of treatment, before medications, to treat lifestyle-related chronic diseases. Lifestyle-related chronic diseases include diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and some cancers, just to name a few. Lifestyle practices, such as eating a whole-food plant-based diet and regular physical activity, can help you lose weight, and maybe reverse some chronic diseases (if you suffer from them). In certain cases, these approaches may even outperform pharmaceutical therapy.
Tools for COVID-19 Prevention
COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and free. Get the vaccine: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/
While COVID-19 cases continue to soar, better masks will help protect against transmission. The CDC says a NIOSH-approved N95 provides the most protection. Well-fitting surgical masks and KN95 masks offer the next best protection, followed by cloth masks with multiple layers. I recommend this Face Mask NIOSH N95 w/o Valve.
CDC recommends washing hands with soap and water whenever possible because handwashing reduces the amounts of all types of germs and chemicals on hands. But if soap and water are not available, using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can help you avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. I recommend TriDerma Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer.
Choose a face shield that wraps around the sides of your face and extends below your chin or a hooded face shield. This is based on the limited available data that suggest these types of face shields are better at preventing spray of respiratory droplets. I recommend Shield U PPE Headgear and Face Shield.
An oximeter may be useful for monitoring oxygen levels if a person has a light case of COVID-19 and is treating it at home.
Please talk with your doctor about any complementary health approaches, including supplements, you use. Let me know what you think in the comment section below.
