"Fascist, out of touch, crass, privileged, dumb" – just some of the names I was called online yesterday when a very prominent newspaper posted an extremely fear-mongering article about a COVID comeback, basically insinuating we should stay inside over Labor Day weekend.
As you well know, being outside is one of the best things you can do for your mental, emotional, and physical health. So, I posted that maybe, just maybe, we could take into consideration the health benefits of vitamins, vegetables, exercise, and sunshine. The comment section went berserk. My little comment set the internet ablaze. I literally wrote that comment and didn't think twice about it. I went about my day and forgot about it.
So, I'm at the gym this morning, doing the leg machine, listening to a podcast, and the podcast mentioned how the news was starting to fear-monger about staying inside again. I thought, 'Oh yeah, I wonder if anyone responded to my comment.' That's when I saw it. People were going nuts, fighting each other in the comment section under my comment. Some supported what I said, while others attacked me and each other, calling names left and right.
My question is, when the heck did being healthy become so polarizing, and why does it trigger so many people? When did it become normal for the news to act as a medium of fear-mongering rather than as a medium of truth and facts?
Now, I choose not to live in fear. I choose to live in empowerment. I know the body is designed to heal itself when given the tools it needs to do so. Don't let your government, your politicians, or your doctors tell you otherwise. Don't buy into the fear. Don't buy into the politicization of health. Politics today just want to define us and divide us.
My goal is to live a long, strong, healthy, joyful life free from chronic degenerative disease. So many people are living in fear and in the expectation that they are going to get sick, that being in a chronic disease state is inevitable or genetic. No, it's not. Nothing is inevitable. You are in control. You have the power to choose health every day.
I have never had COVID. I rarely ever get sick. I've talked to some other people like me who have avoided getting sick this whole time, and I wondered if I knew what my healing protocol is. I have shared it on this show before. I know what works for me, but I was curious – what are the commonalities between me and others who have not gotten sick? So, I wanted to share those with you today.
