“VACCINATE….VACCINATE….VACCINATE….IS THERE NOTHING WE CAN DO TO STRENGTHEN OUR INNATE IMMUNITY?
Every day I spend 15 minutes with “full body sun exposure” in peak sunshine hours?
Why would I do something so “crazy”?
Why not sunblock and shade hugging?
Remember I said only 15 minutes….and why? Because this summer (more than ever before) I have consciously worked to build up my vitamin D levels, ready for the long winter months ahead.
Why now more than ever?
Because study after study after study after study (you get the picture) illustrates that one of the self protective steps we can take, to boost our natural protection and resilience against Covid 19, is to elevate our vitamin D levels.
New Zealanders are chronically vitamin D deficient…largely because of our Sun Smart messaging of sunblock, hats and shade hugging.
While the benefits of this may be skin cancer reduction…the price we pay is a nation hovering on the brink of endemic Vitamin D deficiency.
Which New Zealanders are MOST vitamin D deficient?
Elderly, frail, and living in care (they rarely get outside)….and those with naturally dark skin (Maori, Pacifica etc).
To care for myself I will also be supplementing my diet with vitamin D throughout the winter months…but more on that in a post to come.
Sharing below, the insights from Dr James Chestnut ….Gross Negligence, Malpractice, and Preventable Death and Suffering – Where is the public health recommendation for sufficient Vitamin D intake?
There is unequivocal evidence regarding the importance of Vit D for immune function in general and, specifically, with respect to immunity against COVID-19 and influenza. As I have pointed out many times, physiological and biochemical research evidence is clear that Vit D is required by the white blood cells of the innate immune system to epigenetically upregulate the production of AMPs or antimicrobial proteins, and by the T-cells of the humoral immune system, especially the Treg or T-regulatory cells, to control inflammation and thus prevent Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) – the leading cause of death associated with both COVID-19 and Influenza. For months, in fact years, I have been lecturing, and writing research reviews, newsletters, and articles, about the peer-reviewed evidence regarding the importance of Vitamin D (and proper synergistic amounts of Vitamin A), and Omega-3 fatty acids, for both immune health and the prevention of, and risk reduction from, respiratory illnesses caused by influenza, Corona, and Rhino viruses, and severe complications from these respiratory illnesses such as ARDS caused by excess inflammation. I have also lectured and written extensively for two decades about the importance of these essential nutrients for the prevention of, and risk reduction and healing from, the most common chronic illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, digestive problems, and emotional anxiety and depression. Keep in mind, these are the comorbidities that also lead to higher hospitalization and death rates from COVID-19 – and FLU. The research illustrating the fact that deficiencies in these essential nutrients are significant factors in the underlying causes of both acute respiratory and chronic systemic illnesses (immune system dysfunction, chronic inflammation, high blood sugar/insulin resistance, gut dysbiosis and inflammation, and depression and anxiety – to name a few) is unequivocal and undeniable.
Years ago, based on the research evidence, I created Innate Choice OmegA+D Sufficiency, a combination of cod liver oil (Omega-3, Vit D, and Vit A) and Omega-3 fish oil (Omega-3 fatty acids), with added extra Vit D, in order to supply sufficient amounts of these essential nutrients as well as the proper synergistic combination of these essential nutrients. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic I also created an Evidence-Based COVID-19 and FLU Prevention and Risk Reduction Protocol that was based on the best available evidence. Please go to www.innatechoice.com for more information.In what can only be considered a carte blanche endorsement and validation of this Evidence-Based COVID-19 and Flu Prevention and Risk Reduction Protocol, is the recent December 2020 open letter signed by over 100 top scientists, doctors, and leading health authorities, and sent to all governments, public health officials, doctors, and healthcare workers calling for universal supplementation with Vitamin D to reduce COVID-19 infections and related deaths. Here is the link to this open letter http://innatechoice.com/…/Dec_2020_COVID-19_Vitamin_D.pdf
PLEASE ensure you and your loved ones are getting sufficient intake of these essential nutrients. There simply is not a more evidence-based, more cost-effective way to improve your immune function and protect yourself from COVID-19 and FLU.

Which is the more reasonable approach a society might take in the outbreak of epidemic: 1. To quarantine the sick, and take reasonable precautions to stop those who are identified as vulnerable from contracting the illness. 2. To attempt to “control the virus” by preventing millions of healthy people from having contact with other healthy people.
by Rob Slane via TheBlogMiore.com
To any society prior to 2020, it would have been obvious that the first approach is not only logical and proportionate, but the one least likely to have other unintended and highly destructive consequences.
However, to my continued astonishment, many in our society not only believe that the answer is the second, but they somehow believe it to be based on established science.
Now I understand that many who support Lockdown will object to my characterisation of their position. They will say that it is deliberately misleading, since it talks about healthy people, and does not mention the sick. Such objections founder, however, on this undeniable fact:
Lockdowns are, by their nature, an entirely untargeted and indiscriminate approach to a health issue, and the prohibiting by law of millions of healthy people from having contact with other healthy people is a feature, not a bug of a policy that was untried and untested before it was first implemented by the Chinese Communist Party in January last year, then copied by many Governments around the world thereafter.
For some reason, many Lockdownists seem to think that the onus is on Lockdown opponents to disprove their position. But as Dr Malcolm Kendrick points out in his excellent piece – Does Lockdown Work or Not, this is the opposite of how things are supposed to work:

“…mentioning Sara had the Pfizer COVID mRNA injection was being censored and deleted in social media..” why then do they not want people to know this? This is the vaccine being currently rolled out in NZ. EWR
“As we reported yesterday, the CDC has stated on their website that there have been 1,170 deaths recorded in the U.S. following the experimental mRNA COVID injections, and according to the CDC and the FDA, NONE of them are related to the “COVID vaccines.”
Do you really believe this?
by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News
The COVID Blog is reporting that 28-year-old Sara Stickles from Beloit, Wisconsin, a healthcare worker at SwedishAmerican Hospital, has suffered a brain aneurysm and is now brain dead just 5 days after receiving the second experimental mRNA COVID injection from Pfizer.
Sadly, this is another instance reported where a young healthcare worker in the prime of their life and with no previous existing health conditions has died after being injected with one of the experimental mRNA COVID injections.
She was an organ donor, so her body is being kept alive until they find suitable recipients for her organs.
Whilst the world in various parts is in lockdown why not ponder on the value of growing your own food? This was the norm in my childhood, in fact you were the exception if you didn’t have a veggie garden and fruit trees. Thing too is, you won’t be dependent on corporations to eat. Now that’s a good thing. And you can grow veggies in tubs, indoors (google that) or on your section. Last note, NZ (for Kiwis) has its own gardening guru Wally Richards. He has a website called Garden News & believe it or not, an 0800number so you can phone him for advice. I did that just recently after moving house to learn how to treat the previously sprayed garden plot (yes Roundup!!… highly toxic … yes they lied) before planting any food there. (Links to Wally’s two websites below the article) Note also, there is a garden page here at the main menu, I just have not updated it for a while but worth a visit .. EWR
From the ‘Vegan Sustainability’ magazine:
There is a huge growing trend in people wanting to become more self-sufficient, where living off your own garden can provide enormous health and environmental benefits.
The following is a beginner’s guide, with information on how to get started, and a few tips and tricks to make growing your own food easy!
Deciding Where to Grow
Vegetables grow best where it is sunny, so choose carefully when you are deciding where to plant. You can always add shade for more delicate crops such as salad and fruit bushes.
The majority of soil found in gardens will suit vegetable growing. However, if your soil is shallow, full of stones or clay rich, which will be cold and wet in winter, build raised beds or plant in large pots.
Dealing with Pests
One advantage of growing your own produce is the avoidance of pesticides and therefore you will want to deal with slugs and snails naturally.
Keep the plot clear of weeds and leaves and put a paved or soil path between beds, so you or the birds can spot pests easily. Check out this link for tips on non-violent pest control in the garden.
Preparing the Soil
Before you start planting you should turn the soil over and remove weeds, roots and stones. This helps to prevent weeds returning and improves drainage. Some gardens will suffer the blight of perennial weeds and in this case cover the soil with newspaper and add a layer of compost about 5cm in depth.

Fact: Japan has the lowest infant mortality rate following ban on mandatory vaccinations, they urge other countries to follow this firm stance
The citizens of Japan are statistically proven to be the healthiest and longest-living people in the world. The country also has the lowest infant mortality rate on the planet. It may come as no surprise to many that the Japanese Government banned a number of vaccines that are currently mandatory in the United States and has strict regulations in place for other Big Pharma drugs and vaccines in general. Japan’s anti-vax policies have long been criticised by vaccine pushers in the US who claim that vaccinating the public “promotes health.”
However, Japanese people live longer, healthier lives than Americans, with babies born in the US twice as likely to die in infancy than those born in Japan. It’s clear to see that Western nations have a lot to learn from the Japanese when it comes to their approach to vaccinations and issues facing public health. The Japanese are vaccine sceptics, to put it simply, and due to adverse reactions suffered by Japanese children, have banned many vaccines.
Important information from Laura – ActionStation petition site on making a submission to improve minimum rental housing standards. These submissions close on January 27th, while lots of Kiwis are still on holiday or at the beach! How typical of our current government to table this when folks are too busy or too removed from the information to know about it and/or respond. Please consider making a submission … ActionStation has provided a form to make it easy for you. EnvirowatchRangitikei
“The government are currently taking submissions from the public on their Bill to improve minimum housing standards for rentals in New Zealand.
This is our opportunity to push for standards that would ensure everyone in New Zealand has access to a warm, dry home.
Will you make a quick submission? It will take 5 minutes.
Do you remember how last year, after a surge of people power (and sadly, tragic stories of sick and dying Kiwi kids) the government announced legislative changes were to be made to our minimum housing standards? Changes like requirements for smoke alarms and insulation in residential rental properties, among other things. 
The Bill that would enact the proposed changes has just been tabled in the House and referred to Select Committee.  What that means is that members of the public can now have a say on minimum housing standards for rentals in New Zealand by making a parliamentary submission. The catch is these submissions close on January 27th, while lots of Kiwis are still on holiday or at the beach.
We believe that’s because although the changes proposed by the government have been a very welcome first step on the path to warm, dry and affordable homes for all – The Bill doesn’t go nearly far enough, and they know it.
So we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you to make a submission. We’ve spoken to a variety of social justice, children’s health and sustainability experts to get their point of view, and set up an easy to use form to make it really quick and simple for you to have a say on how we can improve New Zealand’s housing for all. Will you take action once again to help improve NZ’s poor quality housing crisis?
We’ve included the expert analysis and recommendations for you to use in your submission; feel free to copy and paste the parts that are important to you, or just use our form to make your own submission. You don’t need to be an expert to have a say. Often a story from your own personal experience can be the most compelling submission of all.
Together we can ensure that everyone in New Zealand has access to a warm, dry, healthy and affordable home.
Thanks so much for caring,
Laura on behalf of the ActionStation team.”
