Here are the two paths being explored:
PATH 1: Are you sick with all the symptoms? Then treat it.
PATH 2: Are you sick with all the symptoms? Then treat it and we will also take some spit and run it through the great bullshit engine. And when the great bullshit engine returns the results, we will then be able to confirm that you are sick (and continue treatment) or we will accuse you of being a fraudulent piece of shit liar (and continue treatment)
I choose to not put much weight in "the great bullshit engine".

Many studies have documented the correlation between stress and illness. The word disease, comes from dis-ease, which is that we are in a stessed situation. Things aren't easy when we are sick. They are complicated and messy. We need to change the state of who we are to not be diseased, to not be in a state of a lack of ease, to not be sick/ill.
For all pathogen-based diseases, stress can certainly play a role, but I'm talking about people who otherwise lead much healthier lifestyles than I. So the point about looking at the bigger picture is relevant here.
So, one major thing that is in our power to do, is to reduce our stress. Do things that make yourself happy, fulfilled, and purposeful.
Many, if not all, traditional cultures associated illness with evil and bad spirits. It is super important to keep our spirits up, even if we are ill, and/or even if we feel that we are not recovering well or fast enough.
Keeping our spirits up is not some airy super-purple idea; it is just a matter of trying ones best to think positively, to pick yourself up, and to not allow stress to the factor that is controlling our health. We are controlling our stress. We are largely if not completely, controlling our health.
So, remember, you got this, relax and do your best to increase your health and wellness, and if you can, do the same for others in any way possible.
I believe that our minds are far more powerful than we commonly believe, and I further believe that the power of positive thinking and affirmations, like prayer and placebo, have a massive potential impact on the health and well being of ourselves and our communities. I'm not saying that this is the magic bullet that kills Covid 19, but it can play a huge role if we affirm within ourselves that we have the ability to heal ourselves. A postive attitude is positive altitude in eliminating dis-ease.
In that regard, I propose that this song take on that role. It is a sing-a-long round, and is catchy, and it is certainly brought forward wonderfully by this vibrant soul.
I can't imagine how many kids are stressed out, and nervous, and scared, and tense right now. Those things can all be helped. We can help them. The same is true of adults.
I wish you the blessings that you deserve: health, and wellness, and good spirits. Stay positive, people, you and we will get through this.

Urine pH. On my test strips it needs to be very very dark for an hour.
But a virus gets into your respiratory system and then into the blood. Urine is ‘downstream’ of that part of your system. I’m confused about how changing the pH of your urine would help kill off a virus that’s ‘upstream’ in the blood. What am I missing?
The urine numbers show the general alkalinity of the whole body. Acid loving viruses are weakened or killed, by what to them is a toxic environment. When the urine pH is elevated, it means the whole body is too, for a bit, until the kidneys can clear out the excess. An alkaline body has a lot of positive effects on the immune system, as well as waste removal systems, so your body can work more effectively to clear out the dead or weakened viruses.
This whole bit comes off alt-med flu treatment with baking soda. Influenza is also an acid loving virus, and baking soda has been used for years in this way on it. CV has been tested and was found to be an acid loving one too, so it's very likely to have the same effects. Look up baking soda and the flu for more information on it.
It's non-toxic, and easy and cheap. To me it's definitely worth trying, especially for people who won't do anything that takes too much effort, or herbs they don't have. Most people have a box of baking soda around, in their freezer if nothing else, that's why a lot of us are trying to spread this. Permies people tend to be willing to do other things, and to eat more veggies, so they run a more alkaline body than people who eat the Standard American diet, or worse. That's why I said something like "if you test your pH" I know a lot of permies do. But pH is just a reflection of what goes on in the whole body, and it doesn't stay elevated long, because your body corrects it back to it's normal state.
