Dangers of COVID Fear Signaling in Kids, How to Stop Today

I took this picture of my daughter a few weeks ago as she prepared to return to school, physically. Her excitement was infectious as I took the ‘first day back to school picture’. She was thrilled to see her friends and I was relieved that our life took a giant step towards normalcy. It made me reflect on the kids who are not going back to school in person. Even those that are physically going back to school, many are afraid. It makes me sad that our COVID fear signaling has robbed kids of these pure, joyful moments. COVID Fear Signaling...

Keto Friendly Wine – Review of Dry Farm Wines

Dry Farm Wines is all over social media advertised as an ‘all-natural’, low sugar, lower sulfite alternative to commercial wine.

4 Keto-Friendly Cocktail Mixers: Review RSVP Skinnies

Today bottled or filtered water is the preferred water source for most people. Unfortunately, both bottled and filtered water are deficient in basic minerals lack magnesium. Drinking filtered water instead of the mineral-rich water our ancestors enjoyed can result in dangerous mineral deficiencies. Our human ancestors evolved in a world in which healthy drinking water came directly from streams, rivers, and lakes, rich in mineral content. The human body became reliant on obtaining...

Magnesium Deficiency Recent reports have highlighted the importance of vitamin D in fighting Covid-19. With more than 40% of the population deficient in vitamin D, everyone is scrambling to restore healthy levels. Unfortunately, without normal levels of magnesium, these efforts will not have the intended effects. Even worse, if you supplement vitamin D but can’t absorb it, you can actually cause negative effects such as vascular calcification. Magnesium deficiency is common and undermines efforts to restore normal vitamin D levels. Vitamin D can’t be metabolized without sufficient magnesium levels, meaning Vitamin D remains stored and inactive for as many as 50...

Vitamin D Deficiency related to COVID-19 Severity

COVID-19 and Vitamin D Deficiency Only 13% of COVID-19 patients tested have recommended vitamin D values. This confirms what biohackers have been saying all along about vitamin D deficiency (1).

Those with the lowest vitamin D values are correlated with the worst COVID-19 outcomes. Vitamin D Deficiency, Prevalence This data is especially alarming because vitamin D deficiency is very common. Most estimates have upwards of 80% of the population as deficient in this important vitamin. Ethnic populations have an even higher prevalence. African...
