DID YOU KNOW that common pain relievers weaken the immune system, especially against infectious pathogens? This is why we were so adamant that you eschew pain relievers before and after getting the COVID shot. The British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology study discovered acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Advil), and aspirin not only work against the immune system to fight infection, but blunt the immune response to COVID-19 vaccinations.

COVID-19 Vaccine Information We updated this document Monday, February 22nd.
Virus Prevention And Treatment Vaccines minimize COVID-19 related mortality and hospitalizations, but SARS-CoV-2 is here to stay. Moreover, it is not the only virus we fight. There are influenza (flu), norovirus (stomach flu), adenovirus (common cold), and four other coronaviruses (common cold), among others. Continue your immune support year-round. For more information, refer to our Prevent and Fight Viruses 2.0 Protocol.
Post-COVID Syndrome 2.0 The official diagnosis for post-COVID syndrome (PCS) are symptoms that last for 12 weeks or more. If you, a family member, friend, coworker, or neighbor is suffering from PCS, diligently following our Post-COVID Syndrome 2.0 Action Plan for purchase, or free to paid members here (must use the password), can bring measurable improvement.
Have a happy, healthy day! Steve and Bonnie Minsky

Gluten and Autoimmune Disease
Steve: For those who say a gluten-free eating style is overtly restrictive and too many people following it don't really need to, a new study from Nutrition Reviews blows that argument out of the water. It is common knowledge that gluten is directly related to specific autoimmune disorders (where the body's immune system attacks it's own tissue), such as celiac disease and Hashimoto's disease. However, this new study finds gluten is related to a whole host of what were once thought to be non-gluten autoimmune diseases. Not only did the researchers find that a gluten-free eating style led to a lower risk of developing these non-gluten autoimmune diseases, but after diagnosis, subjects who ate exclusively gluten-free reported 65% less adverse symptoms. Common sense would tell us that when we remove a toxic offender like glue from our diet (gluten is a glue-like substance that helps hold the wheat plant together), we would function more optimally. Yet, many in the allopathic medical world refuse to acknowledge how devastating gluten can be. Just like the majority of us react adversely to lactose from cow's milk foods, many of us treat gluten as a toxic agent, that with constant exposure, overexcites our immune system, such that it cannot turn off, attacks our own tissue, and thus becomes an autoimmune disease. With all the wonderful gluten-free options that are now available, it is time we stop categorizing gluten-free eating style as draconian.
