WOODFORD FILES: Covid Theories; DIY Healthcare; and Vaccine Stats

Happy spring! With 12 months of corona-virus chaos behind us, hopefully now we can turn toward a future filled with insights gleaned from the pandemic.

One insight that arose from the overall pattern of Covid infections and deaths is that the “terrain theory” developed by scientist Antoine Bechamp (a colleague of Louis Pasteur) was probably right. Bechamp postulated that disease can only occur in a body whose terrain (cells, extracellular fluid, and blood) has been weakened by toxicity or other factors. This could explain why some people became seriously ill or died from the virus, and many more did not.

According to Dr. Marika Geis, ND, at Prairie Sky Integrative Health, “The thinking basically goes… that the severity of the infection will correlate with the patient’s health status. In other words, the unhealthier the lifestyle, the more out of balance a body is, the more susceptible they will be to disease. Further, the disease will be much more severe in that person compared to a body that is physiologically stable and healthy.” (https://prairieskyhealth.ca/)

With this in mind, there’s never been a better time to embrace Do-It-Yourself-Healthcare. By tending to the garden of our inner terrain, we are better able to build a strong resistance to infectious microorganisms, and recover fast when they do invade.

In addition to the excellent features he’s already written about Covid prevention and treatment (now posted on our website), Dr. Zoltan Rona brings us a new feature on “DIY Healthcare” this month. In it, he offers six sets of remedies for six common health disorders. From glucosamine for arthritis, to CoQ10 for heart disease, to curcumin for cancer, Dr. Rona outlines the essential supplements that can be used at home to deal with illness and disease. These are things you will not learn about from conventional Western doctors because they lack the training in nutrition. So we are deeply grateful to Dr. Rona, a specialist in integrative and nutritional medicine, for sharing his expertise.

And do keep in mind that all of our content is regularly uploaded to our website, where you can go to post comments, ask questions, or share articles on social media, and with friends and family.


In regards to the question of how safe are the experimental vaccines coming at us these days, here are some sobering statistics shared by Children’s Health Defense:

“The latest data made public by the [U.S.] Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) on deaths and injuries reported after COVID vaccines are in line with trends that have been emerging since the first data were released in December. Between Dec. 14, 2020 and Feb. 18, 2021, 19,907 reports of adverse events have been reported to VAERS, including 1,095 deaths and 3,767 serious injuries.” (For more info, visit https://childrenshealthdefense.org/)
