Our business is called Health Yourself. We help thoseinterested in taking responsibility for their health learn how to do that. So, you can imagine how discouraging it’s been for us to witness how bleakly unprofessional the “experts” have been with their advice on how to respond to this Covid pandemic.
What have doctors and official government spokespeople recommended? Masks, social distancing, shutting down businesses, and waiting for a vaccine. Nothing, absolutely nothing, has been suggested to health ourselves.
Imagine a mechanic telling you: “Your engine may be damaged or get damaged. Keep driving, don’t worry about the quality of fuel or oil you put in it, and just wait for parts to arrive in nine months. Oh, these are new parts, never used before, but we’re sure hoping they will work.”
That would be insanity. So, why haven’t most people realized the same insanity exists for how we’ve been mis-led about our health?
It’s called propaganda. And here’s the best articulation of how it works that I know of. I’m not going to attribute the quote because it could flavor how some read it.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come tobelieve it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
What is the truth being suppressed in this case? The fact that, as individuals, we can positively or negatively influence our own health. Now, did the word “vaccine” appear in that comment? Is there anything in what you’ve read so far that demonizes the vaccine? No. But I wonder if some readers will feel this is an anti-vax rave? It’s not. This actually has nothing to do with the vaccine. It has everything to do with us taking responsibility for our health.
What should the experts have been telling us? How about: “Please, do everything you can to stay healthy. This virus is serious, you need a healthy immune system to deal with it. So, eat healthy, drink enough water, rest, get out in nature, and here’s a few things to take that have been proven over decades to support the strength of our immune systems: Vitamin C and D, zinc, etc. Make sure to ask your doctor about how to use these and how to keep your immune system strong.”
Did I miss this? Has anything remotely like this been written or spoken this past year plus? Absolutely not. Instead, anyone who has dared question the official narrative (huddle in fear and wait for the vaccine) has been demonized. Web sites have been shut down, posts and videos have been deleted, doctors have lost their licenses, reputations and lives have been utterly destroyed, businesses have been forced to close and many thousands have lost their jobs. And anything, even gentle suggestions about staying healthy, has been suppressed.
I’d like to repeat that quote. Read these words again, thinking now about how they apply to us here in 2021.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Now the consequences of The Big Lie (which is what this quote has been called) are showing up. Some analysts go so far as to say that our world has been irretrievable broken. So, what do we do now? How about doing what we could have done from day one? Let’s take responsibility for our personal health!
Go ahead and hunt down the bad guys if you want to. Talk with friends about who’s to blame if that’s your preference. But we will continue to focus on telling the simple truth and helping anyone who wants to … health yourself!
