Back in the heady days of mid-1960s England (1964 to be exact) yours truly, apprenticed to The Metal Box Company while a student at Leigh College of Engineering, was one of a very few (relatively speaking) chosen students to go forth anywhere on the planet under the auspices of VSO – Voluntary Service Overseas – to teach, and coach, and inspire students of other countries within the skill-set of your own experience. The only caveat was that you had to go to the country chosen for you. And most importantly, that you were medically protected from the vestiges of what we might term the ‘coronavirus health dangers’ of the time. Each country had its own.
Here’s the list yours truly had to have covered before any thoughts of departure were anticipated to anywhere to do with voluntary anything! *Scarlet fever; *Measles; *Mumps; *Polio; *Tetanus disease; *Whooping cough; *Tuberculosis (TB); *Smallpox; *Chickenpox; Yellow fever; Flu; and a few other ‘minor’ invasive diseases added in for good measure.
Let me remind you that growing up in post-WWII England, literally half on that list would already have been applied to my body courtesy of many mothers in those days, sending us kids out there to play with any of those already having the likes of measles, chicken pox, whooping cough etc etc., in order for us to get it, get over it, and remain immune for life! Simple.
Over the many years since those halcyon days of yore, I’ve witnessed enough to understand that people don’t die of measles, flu, mumps, or many other vaccinated infections/diseases, but from complications brought on by other factors such as for instance, nutrition. With few exceptions it was better to have the disease when young as I’ve described than rely on often backfiring or ineffective vaccines.
The sad part of all this these days is that folks in the medical profession can’t say this anymore without having their licenses revoked thanks to far-left socialists and their regulations and myriads of ‘standards’. Government as an entity most often refuses to fund contrary research. With my own three sons as youngsters it was a challenge to find any MD’s around who had experienced what I’ve described above with actual diseases. Pimples, bedbug bites, acne, rashes, and lyme disease are NOT ‘measles’; as much as the ill-informed would have it!

Following the wisdom of mothers in the days of my childhood would be far less costly and disruptive than what is being done today to contain the Wuhan Virus, and it might be more effective.
Back then, in the late 1950s, I remember my mother sending me to play with a neighbor kid who’d broken out with chickenpox. She wanted me to get infected so I would become immune. Sure enough, a few days later, I developed chickenpox and a short time later, I was immune for life. Large numbers of mothers doing the same thing helped limit the spread of the disease by developing “herd immunity,” where infection rates dropped because the contagion was finding few non-resistant people to infect and transmit it. That helped control the spread of the disease before we had a vaccine.
That’s quite a contrast with the draconian public restrictions being imposed by our nation’s leaders and the economic upheaval being caused by our attempt to control the spread of the Wuhan Virus, also labeled COVID-19.
Our foundational problem in dealing with the Wuhan Virus is that we have placed too much faith in our medical experts to protect us, and discovering how powerless they are against it has left us feeling vulnerable and threatened. Complicating that, our leaders are relying on the advice of doctors who are using statistically questionable data.[-]
[+] … The immune systems in our bodies are amazingly powerful at defending us because they are constantly looking for invaders and developing antibodies to attack them. Sometimes, you don’t even know an invader has been detected, and you may be sick for only a few days as your immune system fights it. Best of all, once that invader is defeated, we become immune to it for a period of time ranging from a few years to the rest of our lives.[-]
[+] … As of Monday, the Wuhan Virus had been detected in every state in the continental U.S. except West Virginia, so it appears to be “in the wild.” Control measures like social distancing will be limited or powerless to prevent it from spreading.
One thing of which we can be certain amid all this turmoil is that the immune systems in our bodies are already working full-time to protect us by destroying this latest viral invader. If this happens on a large scale, herd immunity will help us moderate and control the spread of the disease — and it doesn’t cause economic disruption. Unfortunately, social distancing works to prevent this from happening just when we need it the most. [-]

We have created a society where 98% of the people live in crowded metro areas. And the natural immunity that we built up from years of living close to ‘the real world’ is gone. What could possibly go wrong?
Yes, way back when, there were a few that feared getting their ‘shots’ because one in several thousand might get sick. Today, we’re living in a nation that has had (currently) 80 deaths due to Coronavirus and 330 million are (for the next 15 days) ‘social distancing’ and ‘sheltering in place’. The U.S. has gone lockdown mode.
Fact is the human body has a certain gift of natural immunity. I know because I’m in one, and it does!
I don’t tempt fate to get any disease or illness, but neither do I expect to avoid them. It’s the treatment that matters, and the family branch still in England has used the same treatment for more than 80 years. None of them has ever had a flu shot! Not this year, not last year, not any year.
The treatment they use for such infections is simple and cheap. One part hydrogen peroxide and two parts water in a cold water humidifier and run it by your bed at night. It stains nothing, harms nothing, except for anaerobic bacteria and viruses. It gives your own body a chance to bounce back, by providing extra oxygen throughout the respiratory system. Cost runs a whopping couple of quid in England. Natural immunity. So thereya go!
Much, much, more we could get into, yet saved for another occasion. So on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump – MAGA! KAG!
