COVID-19: How To Have A Strong Immune System:

By Naomi Aldort 

Author, Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves

 

The following is my educated opinion on our immune system; not medical advice: 

 

In 1846, Dr. Semmelweis discovered hygiene and recommended hand washing in the hospital he was working at. He was fired from his job and eventually put in a mental hospital where he died in agony, knowing all too well that lives were wasted on this denial. Now we preach his life saving discovery. 

 

I invite us all to learn and consider some unendorsed information that could preserve health and lives:

 

1) Sugar and glucose forming foods destroy our immune system. This has been medically proven in the 70s, and diligently suppressed by the sugar and related industries ever since. Right after consuming such foods, There is a decrease of the immune activity by about 75%. This is how children get colds at birthday parties so often. Likely culprit: Sugar, simple carbs, baking goods, pasta, chips, soft drinks, processed foods, too much grains/legumes, and even too much fruit.

 

 

2) For a strong immune system eat whole, organic, unprocessed nutritionally dense foods free of toxins, free of sugars, heated vegetable oils, chemicals, colors, additives, alcohol etc. When the body has to clean up toxins, it takes away from its ability to heal or resist and fight viruses. And, the toxins do direct harm to organs and to the functioning of the immune system.

 

3) Glyphosate harms the lungs and the immune system, creating more severe illness from COVID-19. For strong immune system and healthy lungs, eat only ORGANIC. Glyphosate is in pesticides, and washing does not get rid of it. According to MIT senior research scientist, Stephanie Seneff, people who consume non organic food suffer from more severe symptoms of COVID-19 due to constant harm to their lungs and to their immune system from Glyphosate. This is the time to switch to eating only organic for your sake, and, by the way, also to stop destroying the planet and the future of human foods.

 

4) The medical system is mostly defying the benefits of supplements and herbs in prevention and healing of viral infections. But what if they are wrong (as were the doctors who fired Dr. Semmelweis?) People who eat well and use natural supplements, report staying well and recovering fast from colds and flu if they (rarely) get sick. Some important supplements: Vitamin C, A, D, and Zinc, Turmeric, Frankensense essential oil, and more. If interested, you can research online and read credible research that is not connected to profit.

 

5) Spend daily time in the fresh air and exercise.

 

6) Get enough sound sleep.

 

7) Our body’s ability to heat itself is directly related to its immune system. When healthy, give your body and your child's body a chance to create heat by not over indulging in temperature comfort and not over dressing your children. Some people take cold showers to strengthen the immune system and research have proven them right. When a child does not feel a need for a coat or shoes; she is right. Trust her and let her body activate heat making and with it the immune system. Humans used to be able to live in a wide ranger of temperature. Consider letting your children build such natural ability. 

 

8) Wash clothes after you go in public and keep the other hygiene guidance that is well publicized.

 

Here are just a few resources, details on the sugar connection, and my personal story. Be reminded that the sugar and junk food industries have covered up this information since its discovery in the 70s. 

 

Did you know that organically grown plants are much more resistant to bugs and attacksorganic gardening includes allowing pests to consume a certain (or uncertain) part of one's crop for their ongoing existence in the diversity of nature. This is how they become resilient, have a strong “immune system” which repels many bugs. Resilience comes from engaging with nature, not running away from it.

 

In parenting, I teach to raise children who don’t run away from the storm but learn to dance in the rain. I am not suggesting to dance with the virus, but to become someone the virus doesn’t wish to dance with.

 

In my work I often find myself looking for healing solutions and strategies for raising healthy children. I have read over the last 40 years, about 30-40 medical and health books, studies, and research done by physicians, scientists, nutritionists, and naturopaths.

 

In his book, The Common Cold and Common Sense (1971), Dale Alexander presents research and experiments that prove the devastating affect of sugar on the immune system, rendering it almost non existent for a few hours, and damaging long term. Although his book is about colds, everything he says applies to any virus.

 

At the Common Cold Research Unit in Salisbury, England, Sir Christopher Andrews, and, Dr. David A.J. Tyrrell, discovered that sugar destroys the protective mucous membrane in the throat. In its absence one is extremely vulnerable to catching a bug. More recently, Dr. Billiot explains how Glucose in the bloodstream replaces vitamin C because of similar chemical structure, thereby getting in the way of immunity. There is much more if you dare to read and search for unbiased and not for profit information.

 

Social distance and hygiene are obviously helpful, but as important, yet not talked about, is strengthening your immune system.

Reflections on how to respond when other people correct or intervene with your child:

By Naomi Aldort

A mother asked what to do when people in public or elsewhere in the community, correct her young child, specially when it opposes to what she would want to say. Here is my response, which is very different than any I have ever seen:mother and child

Yes, there are situations that I would pluck my child and move away, obviously, while validating her feelings as needed and calmly. But, most people's interventions are not dangerous and can be well intended and sometimes even useful. It is good for children to encounter real life and real people, and to experience relationships on their own without parental mitigation. This is how humans are and children learn to deal with real people this way (when safe of course and depending on age). To undo damaging "correction," I respond to the child; not to the adult!

 (Incidentally, this is the best lesson for the adult too.) 

 This way the child learns how to respond, rather than how to change the other. She learns to take care of herself rather than see herself as a victim who needs rescue or a defense. This builds emotional resilience and teaches skills of empathy and kindness because you communicate to the child with empathy, validation and kindness as well as with strategy for self care and avoiding focus on blame. 

 For example, you may say, "This man told you xyz..." and, depending on the response or facial expression and the situation, you can connect with your child. First find out if it really mattered, "How do you feel about what he said?" If the child says or looks hurt, you can validate, "If you don't like... we can go elsewhere." Sometimes, it is not reparable, or your child has to cooperate in ways you or she don’t like. Don’t teach the other person; care for your child like other people are the rain and wind. “Well, it looks like you won’t be able to play on the slide now. What would you like to do instead?” And if the child cries, listen and hug as needed without adding righteousness or drama. Your goal is to ensure that your child stays rooted in herself and knows that she can trust the way she feels. And, that if the situation is such that she doesn’t get her way, she can handle it.

 Or, if harsh words were spoken, listen to your child and connect with compassion but without drama. The child learns to trust her inner voice and to take action for herself, while not trying the hopeless strategy of changing other people.

I am pro-life: (What?? Read on)

By Naomi Aldort

  1. I would ban wars and the making of armies and weapons. 
  2. I would use the money saved from #1 to abolish child’s poverty and support parenting fully.
  3. I would ban toxic foods, toxic pharmaceuticals and guns.
  4. I would clean the water and air so life becomes sustainable for all.
  5. I would invest in communication for peace and resolving global issues cooperatively.

All these is pro life and is possible; we need to invest in peace and life. Being Pro-life is not about controlling women in the face of life not worth living due to poverty resulting from greed and inequality.

If the state decides for the woman to keep a pregnancy; it follows that the state should pay to provide a high standard healthy birth, and pay for the highest quality of raising, housing, feeding and educating that child, thereby providing a life worth living for both the child and the mother and hopefully the father.                              

No, this is not my solution (read on); it is a way of pointing to the absurdity of government control over women… which comes from the ego, control, righteousness and lack of real care for the life. In reality, what we need is a government that is not involved in personal choices, but is pro-life by ensuring living conditions for all: A government that invests in the people, such that life, education, wellbeing and self-esteem of both men and women, necessarily reduce the number unwanted pregnancies: Young people who grow up feeling good about themselves, connected and thriving, are very unlikely to rape or surrender to coercive sex. And, yes there will still be unplanned pregnancies. We need a system that supports those who get pregnant unintentionally, to choose freely from viable options.        

Instead of bullying poor women (those who can will go to another state to abort) into raising children they cannot afford to raise, and have these poor kids suffer and grow potentially into someone who could take someone’s life (when drunk or mentally ill), we need a government that is really pro-life; the life of the women and the children; A government that invests in maternity leave for both mothers and fathers and in safe maternity and abortion facilities. 

To be pro-life, a government must invests in peace, in clean air, water, healthy food and free education instead of investing in the military and marching young people into killing fields.  

Pretending to be “pro-life” by controlling women whose poverty and impossible life conditions have been the result of inequality rooted in greed - is not being pro-life, but and an ego centered pro-power. 

I invite us all to be pro-life and pro living in freedom for all, not just the few.

NY Times article and my response:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/14/opinion/call-out-social-justice.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage&fbclid=IwAR0XFhoJKoChYkwsjOmy3MQWKNhUBK355cv-mHvJ3Ns-XGngHiaHurwBEsw#commentsContainer

Naomi Aldort's reflection:

Until we break the cycle of right and wrong, and "us" versus “them"; we cannot have peace or achieve real human progress no matter how peaceful the ideas. The NY Times articles points the fingers at the people who publicly “execute” those they see as, “wrong.” Yes, their action are violent. However, the article too is more division and shaming just like what it presents; taking sides and ganging on the mythical ‘other’. 

When I teach parenting about siblings rivalry and marriage, I always say: Bring peace by not taking sides. Each human being has a valid reason for their ways; one that requires care - not punishment. 

Therefore, yes, these young people are busy witch hunting and public shaming, but they are sure that they are doing the right thing, just like the ‘others’ are sure of their point of view. It is how they were raise (not parents’ fault either, as they too were raised this way with best of intentions. There is not fault to be found - only connection and understanding.) Blaming the former generation is just more war. Will you be the first to take a turn towards peace? That is what it takes; being the one. 

Most people are raised to be righteous about something: Righteous about a religion, righteous about veganism, righteous about correct behavior, education, success, academics, clothing, how to be compassionate, ecology, race, gender, liberalism, conservatism… all good and valid themes, but as long as we take sides and see the “other” as “wrong,” we are perpetuating what we condemn and we raise people who repeat the creation of division and therefore violence/war. This paradigm of, ”We” (the good ones) and “they" (the bad ones) is war in the making. 

There are no such divisions other than in the divisive, righteous, innocent but confused mind. 

The way to end the vicious cycle of violence is to move away from taking sides and dividing, and develop compassion based in unity and humility instead. That “other person” is as good as you are. Commit to find out how and why and you will start peace and create the change. Start by realizing that no human being is above or bellow anyone else. Only ego imagines degrees of value. 

For example: Are mammals more valuable than plants? Only a mammal’s ego can think this way (innocent mistake; how can we know?) Or: Is the weed less valuable than the cultivated flower? Only the human mind grades plants for its own ego gratification of consumption or beauty. Reality has no such division.  

There are no weeds in the plant world, nor in the animal and human world. Yes, some people suffer so much that they are not safe to themselves or others. They cannot operate in compassion because they are not conscious of the horror that hijacked their minds. And yes, we need to care for them in a way that protects others, while nurturing them back to mental health; not by adding even more pain to their twisted experience, but by healing and restoring their humanity.

I teach this principal of unity in parenting and it brings peace; always. All sibling rivalry resolves when parents follow my guidance on how to never take sides and only offer confirmation, connection, listening and awareness of unity. There are no “they” out there. It is all “we.”

The people criticized in this NY-times article are obviously used to division, judgement and evaluations. They don’t feel good about themselves without finding fault in another (a me better than them paradigm). That worked for them as children. Unfortunately, this NY-times article repeats the offense and offers more condemnation; no relief and no compassion to help people regain connection. 

The relief is here: Join me on social media and in life, workshops and sessions, within your families and friends and online; let us find the valid reason for each person’s passions, and connect with them rather than condemn them. Always start with yourself and your loved ones.

Kindness is the the key to “restart” humanity on a peaceful path, creating music, dance, beauty, art, literature and innovation - not weapons and no methods of control and planetary devastation.  

Kindness is forgiveness and true forgiveness is the ability to see that there is nothing to forgive. It is easy to see when you are the one blamed, and you know well that you did your best and didn’t mean harm. You know you deserve forgiveness; so does everyone else.

If you wish to create such a path of unity and peace, start right now with you. Start checking inside of you by finding the places of righteousness that makes you see another as not part of you. Then work on yourself to debunk and heal the unquestioned concepts that feed these painful beliefs.

If you need help, book yourself a session with me. Together we can heal humanity, one magnificent self at a time.

Transforming Halloween from Getting to Giving and from Toxic to Green
By Naomi Aldort "How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." – Anne Frank

When I first heard of the “trick or treat” phenomenon as an young adult newcomer to the USA, I was feeling uncomfortable to say the least. Once I had children of my own, as a family, we either left home or turned off all the lights in the front, and hid in the back bedroom not wanting to deal with this, to us, unpleasant and backwards ordeal and not wanting our children to be expose to it or eat candy.

A friend on our island put this paragraph on his Facebook page on his 83rd’s birthday.“Well here it is again. as I start my 83rd trip around the sun,I am so lucky to be here. From a bad orphanage to a worse foster home to all the things it took to get here. I have survived  5 broken bones, 2 concussions and somewhere over 100 stitches, cancer and heart surgery, and various operations from appendectomy to vasectomy.. still have some of my hair and teeth, have glasses and hearing aids...Somehow I got thru it all, and so it seems to me that God in greater wisdom forgives my humanity. Onward…" 

Why am I quoting it on a parenting page? For perspective. Witnessing someone's picture of a full life can help us see our children with more calm and trust.

 Parents often weaken their children's emotional resilience, by preventing them from hurting, and making life perfectly happy for them. This well intended approach does not prepare children for living happily, but for being needy and unfit for life’s challenges; they are more likely to become unhappy unless all goes their way. I suggest that we let children experience real life. No, not create pain for them on purpose, and not be rude to them to drill them in suffering. What I mean is to allow reasonable and safe unfavorable events to unfold while nurturing resilience, sense of humor, and seeing the larger picture with gratitude.

In other words: Stop teaching the child to escape the storm, and instead, dance with her in the rain.

 By distracting, offering compensations and jumping through hoops to make everything all good, we forget that happiness is a state of mind that can makes it possible to go through challenging times and not the other way around. Happiness is the tool by which a human being is able to go through life’s experiences with appreciation and inner strength. Instead of passing on to children the need to depend on circumstances for their joy, impart the ability to feel happy for being here, and grateful through the many colors of this amazing ride.
