DID YOU KNOW that there are steps you can take to minimize daily exposure to radiation from wireless devices and WiFi? While essential to functioning in modern society, a recent study in Current Alzheimer's Research found that electromagnetic field radiation (EMF) can lead to increases in intracellular calcium levels in the brain, a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease. Specifically, wireless communication signals activate voltage-gated calcium channels, which regulate intracellular calcium levels. Strong, consistent exposure can lead to a buildup of calcium in brain cells which cannot balanced quick enough. There are several steps you can take to lower exposure without living in a bubble.
The toughest lifestyle choice would be to move if you live near a cell phone tower. This is where you receive the strongest, dirtiest EMFs which you cannot avoid.
Take your magnesium glycinate supplement. One way to balance out too much calcium intracellularly is to take magnesium.
Try to keep your mobile devices off your body as much as possible during waking hours.
Keep mobile devices out of your bedroom when you sleep at night, or at minimum, keep them on the other side of the room.
Place your WiFi router in a spot such that the EMFs will not have to travel under and through your bed to get to your wireless devices.

COVID-19 Vaccine Information View this document here.
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.
COVID-19 Condition Monograph For those interested in conventional and integrative treatments for COVID-19 with over 250 references, this is our COVID-19 Condition Monograph.
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

Steve: I've updated Our COVID-19 Vaccine Opinion as there have been many new government recommendations over the last few months. New vaccine formulations are expected this fall to address the Omicron variant because as experts from Harvard Medical School’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center warned in New England Journal of Medicine, existing vaccine formulations offer little protection. However, many immunology experts are saying the new formulations will be too late as it is likely the Omicron variant will no longer be dominant in the fall. I thought vaccine manufacturers would be able to act nimbly with SARS-CoV-2 because of how quickly they can map a new variant's genome. I worry this may be no different than how they decide which flu strains will be dominant, which is complete guesswork! Follow your optimal immune protocol until further notice. Post-Acute COVID-19 Syndrome (PACS) If you thought COVID vaccines would reduce your risk of getting PACS or "long COVID," new research from Nature Medicine found they offer only 15% protection versus unvaccinated persons. Patients experiencing brain fog and other persistent symptoms of long COVID show significant deficits on neuropsychiatric screenings, according to a study from Journal of the Academy of Consultation–Liaison Psychiatry. In addition, a study from Medrxiv suggests those with long-term cognitive impairment can be identified with the Oxford Cognitive Screen-Plus assessment, which is cost-effective, mobile, and easily used. COVID-19 Encourages Reactivity of Latent Viruses and More A plethora of reactivity of latent viruses has occurred since the pandemic, especially herpes and varicella outbreaks. Other viruses are also acting differently. For example, those who had COVID-19 in the past are being infected by multiple viruses at once, such as adenovirus or rhinovirus with influenza. And it is happening year round. Until we know more, it is critical to adhere to your immune support protocol. Genetics You've read about the importance of knowing your genetic predisposition to the immune genes IL-6 and TNFa genes. It is part of our Pure Genomics wellness screening. A new study from Biorxiv supports this recommendation. Researchers found that mutations of these genes led to more acute cases of COVID-19, as well as a higher risk for post-COVID symptoms. Infection Versus Vaccine-Induced Immunity A recent study from New England Journal of Medicine purports no discernible differences in protection against symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection were seen with previous infection, vaccination, and hybrid immunity. In a study from Medrxiv, researchers followed four waves in South Africa and found naturally induced alpha infection did not achieve high enough levels to prevent omicron infection in most exposed individuals but are substantially boosted by vaccination leading to significant protection. A single vaccination in those with prior immunity is more immunogenic than 2 doses. Children and adolescents who were previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 remain protected against reinfection to a high degree for 18 months, according to a study in Medrxiv.
