    COVID VIRUS: Where It Came From and What We Should Do

    COVID VIRUS: Where It Came From and What We Should Do

    On this episode of Living Beyond 120, Mark and Dr. Gladden are joined by Chris Howard, PhD (Biochemistry) and Lynn Howard, MD (Pathogenic Microbiology in Infectious Disease).  They take a deep exploration into the origin and pathology of the SARS COVID 2- the actual name of the virus as opposed to COVID-19, which is the name of the disease.
    They begin with the how the virus came into existence – is it a natural occurring phenomenon or is it man-made?  They then go onto where the origin point of the SARS COVID 2 virus is – exactly where in the world did this virus originate? They also explore the question of when the virus started infecting humans.
    Next they delve into the treatment of the virus, discussing the benefits of Hydroxychloroquine, as well as that of Zinc, Selenium, and Vitamins D and C. They also investigate the fact that some people that contract the virus have no need of treatment.
    They then explain the idea of herd immunity; in a large population there are fewer high-risk people overall, the infection rates drop, and the disease peters out.
    Vaccinations are then brought into the discussion.  They bring into question the accuracy and validity of the current testing procedures and how the tests can give a false positive result secondary to other ailments that a person could be suffering from.
    The episode concludes with State orders of staying quarantined in your homes and how this really does nothing to combat the virus; but instead weakens the immune system’s ability to combat it .

Staying young is thinking.

All I can say is my experience. Had stroke at 32. Felt old for years and was almost ready to be old for years, until I died.
Found this podcast, changed my life. Changed my mindset.
Still have issues but that only makes me want to work all the harder because standing still is going backward.
These guys aren’t looking for a payday, they truly want to help you help yourself. H2o max is an amazing product that will help you accomplish your goals. There is no fairy god mother that’ll reach your goals for you.
H2o max WILL help you reach your goals.

Mornings haven’t been good for me for almost 7 years. I can barely move. Everything hurts. My balance is that of a toddler that just started walking.
I could move around and make myself do what I needed before but my kids will attest I sounded like a sailor. I did get stuff done, eventually.
Now, after only one month, mornings are calm. I get most of my daily chores done before they go to school and most importantly I can move without pain or having to focus on the pain. Also mornings are a lot quieter, too.
