On January 1st, 2020, I decided to embark on a brain Detox. I have been following David Perlmutter, MD and his Son Austin Perlmutter, MD for a while. In their new book titled Brain Wash, they mentioned how Disconnection Syndrome is a growing phenomenon in the West and explained how this can make us very ill by reducing our immunity to infectious diseases and other diseases like autoimmunity.
Well, I never thought of that! Our connection with others is a very important part of our existence. Studies from those from the Blue Zones (these are areas where people in 7 areas around the globe who live into their 90’s and 100’s and are fit and healthy working on their farms on in their home and not in nursing homes). These are from different countries regardless of culture or diet; connection with others is key for good health. When you isolate people they get sick. ISOLATION LOWERS YOUR IMMUNITY.
QUOTE – ” A SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS – In the materialistic way of life, there’s no friendship, no concept of love, just work, twenty-four hours a day, like a machine. So in modern society, we eventually also become part of that large moving machine” – The Dalai Lama. Is this what we are becoming? I would take a good look and assess where you are and ask yourself the question.
Anyway, through my health journey trying to come off meds (mission accomplished – Halleluia), I experimented a lot on me and had to spend hours studying to find out what works for me.
The lockdown does not affect me ( or so I used to think, but it eventually gets there) as I love my own company. However, there are a lot of people suffering out there and as a society we seem to forget those people (some of them probably dying, read about sick children also dying due to all attention being given to the V). The science shows, and there are countless papers to this effect, that social isolation kills even more than germs. Because we can’t see this and the media decides these people are unimportant they say nothing.
Good hygiene, the strong immune system is your best chance to fight any virus, lockdown doesn’t’ take it away as it will be back next year and it will be a new strain like it is every flu season. And the V is not for everyone
