Coronavirus and Supplements
“Feed a Cold; Starve a Fever”
Remember that old adage our grandmothers recited?
In Oriental Medicine they’ve had a similar dictate for millenniums.
They say that when someone has an exterior attack (a cold or flu), one should not nourish the body, as it will nourish the pathogen; making the pathogen strong and vibrant. Most all these supplements and all those protein powders are nourishing.
We don’t nourish in the Fall or Winter for two reasons: 1. As someone might have the beginning of an exterior pathogen without knowing. 2. Constant nourishing all year long will exhaust the organs.
When I was child in the early 60’s they used to have “Public Service Announcements.” I remember one very clearly. It said: “ A cold should last three to four days. If it lasts a week or longer, it’s something else and go see your doctor immediately.” Today, we have colds that last months! People are nourishing pathogens and before the immune system can fight it off, the pathogen is nourished and vibrantly stronger than it should be.
We All know people whom are walking encyclopedias on the world of supplements. They can recite information on anything; Lutein, colloidal silver, protein powders, on and on and on. They have shopping bags full of stuff they take. They’re in the population of your friends and relatives. Maybe they’re in the mirror. And, they’re always the sickest people you know; aren’t they? They are nourishing pathogens!
When the Coronavirus moved to the West, we saw statistics on an increasingly younger population getting and dying from this disease. They are the generation on all these supplements and protein powders. Are they nourishing pathogens and dying as a result?
