Before you stand in line to get a hurried up coronavirus vaccine you may want to read what I have to say about the current insanity gripping our nation. Here is the dictionary definition of insanity: “something utterly foolish or unreasonable.” We all agreed that flattening the curve of COVID-19 hospitalizations was necessary. But then the madness kicked in. We flattened the curve but that wasn’t good enough. Now the goal has become “eradicate the virus”. To use a metaphor, we declared “war” on one single ZOONOTIC virus which is constantly mutating as viruses do. The likelihood of developing a vaccine that is 100% effective in giving us adaptive immunity to COVID-19 is a task that is 100% impossible to do; but there is hope. We have an intelligently designed human body that is self-healing. It mounts an immediate response to invasion by harmful bacteria and viruses and then it continues to mount a more measured, long-term response (adaptive immune system), which kills the bad bacteria and viruses and remembers if they invade a second time. If you are attacked by COVID-19, your body will mount an immediate immune response. Your amazing immune system is the very reason you don’t have to hold out hope for a vaccine breakthrough. The insanity I am talking about has morphed into a belief that we can’t get our lives back to normal without a vaccine. COVID-19 is not cancer. Being diagnosed as positive is not a death sentence. Only about 5% of the people tested are positive. Of that number more than 50% are asymptomatic or have mild flu-like symptoms. Eventually you may test positive. But not to worry, we have a robust immune system designed to fight the virus. So why the rush to develop a vaccine? And will our government make it mandatory for all to take? If there is any doubt in your mind that our healthcare system has been politicized, then you must have your head stuck in the sand. We have a fear-based healthcare system, in which big pharma, doctors and government agencies have colluded to make us feel that our immune systems are inadequate and must be supported with drugs and vaccines. Yes, I take antibiotics when necessary; but I avoid vaccines. Why? It makes sense that if you introduce a weakened form of a bacteria or virus into the body to stimulate the immune system, that you would give the body a head start on developing immunity. The problem is that the weakened form of the bacteria or virus, will not always cause the immune system to kick into gear. It is what has to be added to the vaccine to make it work that makes it harmful. To make it irritate the immune system the vaccine must have an adjuvant (something that wakes up the immune system), then to give the vaccine a shelf-life it must have stabilizers, and preservatives. There are also small quantities of harmful chemicals (used during the manufacturing process) in the vaccines. Supposedly most of these chemicals have been removed from the final product before use. That is why they say there are only “trace” quantities present. Vaccine advocates will tell you that these quantities are so small as to not create a problem. The sum of all these ingredients can make the vaccine toxic to human beings Drugs and vaccines are toxic. You only have to watch the commercials on TV to know that. After you listen to all the harmful things that the drug can do, you must then weigh the advantages of the drug and decide if you will take the risk to get the result they promise. Not so with the human immune system. Introduce the bacteria or virus in its living form to the body and your healing machine goes to work. So why don’t we hear the professionals praise the superpowers of our immune system? The short answer is that there is no money it that, unless you are writing a self-help book. I believe that the American public has been poorly served by our government and healthcare establishment. I also believe that God himself must be terribly unhappy with the lack of top-billing that his amazing creation gets. Your immune system may be in poor shape- damaged by drugs (prescription), poor lifestyle, and stress, but it still works. How do I know? Because you are reading this article. I simply want to encourage you to have more faith in your God-given body and immune system. You will either be among the 5% who get the full-strength version of the COVID-19 virus, or you will end up being one of the people getting the weakened version floating in a sea of toxic additives. Personally, I trust my immune system to handle the real virus.
