These are ridiculously stressful times and many of you are concerned about the vaccine, have been asking me about it and so I have made some hopefully helpful notes that you will find here.
My notes address some vaccine as well as disease side effect issues. Please bear in mind that the facts and figures about Covid-19 are changing rapidly—as more vaccines as well as information about side effects and efficacy become available.
The vaccine is being touted a miracle on our doorstep but the reality is that it will not be available for most people in this country for months—or probably much longer. That is fine with me. I am lucky in that I can wait until longer term data about safety and efficacy become available. Check out the online calculator to see where you are (of course roughly) in the queue. Based on my own risk profile I am in line behind 118 million people across the United States, and behind 8 million others who are at higher risk in Florida (my state). Many of us have time to assess it’s efficacy and any deleterious side effects in order to make a more informed decision.
There’s a myth that if you are under the age of 70 and/or you don’t die you are OK even if you get Covid-19. The media are unfortunately perpetuating this by mainly reporting deaths. Yes older people are more vulnerable to dying, much more so, but people of all ages are being affected including athletes and children. Pages 2 and 3 are from a social media post that extrapolates figures for the side effects of the disease … these are salutary. Especially since they do not include the many collateral effects of this disease: those who develop mental illness because of isolation, those who are suffering at the hands of an abusive spouse or parent, those who are burying their loved ones without a proper funeral, those who are avoiding or unable to follow up with their doctors for a chronic condition, and especially those who are on the front lines suffering extreme trauma nursing the sick and the dying.
Page 4 is a letter from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, from the department that specializes in treating those with respiratory diseases exacerbated by aspirin/NSAID allergies (1 million in this country alone). It refers to the allergic reaction experienced by 2 people in the UK on day 1 of the vaccine and the implications for those hesitating to get the vaccine because of their own allergic conditions. Since then 2 more in the US have had similar reactions.
The homeopathic remedies (page 1) are either available at my shop (those starred) or commonly found in most homeopathic First Aid kits or local health food stores. Email me with any questions about these.
Don’t forget Homeopathy Help Now is available should you contract Covid-19. They have treated nearly 1000 patients so far and kept all but a few out of the hospital. Don’t wait. Get help before you need it. You won’t regret it.
Outbreak Update: NCH Webinar
I taught this webinar for the National Center for Homeopathy in April of 2020.
If you take one or two remedies with no result get in touch with your homeopath, or use an online service like Homeopathy Help Now. They have set up a task force of homeopathic practitioners to help specifically with this outbreak.
I want to end by appreciating the armies of emergency services and health care personnel who are caring for sick patients. The doctors and nurses are the tip of a huge healing iceberg that includes support personnel as well, the janitors and aides and administrators and service providers (food and linens etc.) There are so many. So many.
In addition there are multitudes of remarkable people carrying out essential work right now. Helping to keep all our worlds afloat including: Sanitation personnel (trash and recycling), Grocery store clerks and personnel, Pharmacists and pharmacy clerks, Truck and bus drivers, Mail men and women, And so many more …
Those of us sheltering safely in place would like you all to know we are deeply grateful for all you are doing to feed us and delivery our mail and take our trash. And, well, everything. Thank You ♥ ♥ ♥
