An essay to get you thinking!

By David Holden, Alternative Medicine Practitioner,
Health Activist & Inner Change Consultant

Yes folks! There is a positive side to the global pandemic sweeping the planet and altering nearly all its inhabitants’ lives, unless you live under a rock!

There is so much mis-information on the internet, social, mainstream & alternative media about covid, its origins, whether it exists or not, as well as the ongoing debate about the benefits or harms of masks, to have a mandated covid vaccine or not, even if it works or causes harm and whether it is linked to 5G or not.

Then there is the whole debate about Trump and his relative inaction on covid in the USA. Why is he holding back? And is there any validity to his stance or is he just in denial because it doesn’t suit his political agenda? Is Q-Anon real, a hoax or just another CIA / NSA black Psyop?

I don’t have enough information at this time to offer a more informed view on the latter, but the former I have already stated my views on publicly, as these are important questions that not enough journalists are asking. As a free open society, we should be alarmed at this and question the mainstream narrative on these subjects. Rather than being debated they are being shut down. Why? Is there something to really hide here, or is it all just a waste of time and let’s get on with vaccinating the world and moving on from covid?

In summary for those of you that haven’t read or seen my previous articles or radio / internet interviews I’ve done over the past 6 months on the above subjects, I’ve concluded, after many hours research spent in lockdown:

*The Precautionary Principle is a scientific understanding that new breakthroughs in science & technology & its applications should err on the side of caution until we know with detailed, commercially independent, scientific testing if it really is safe before it is uncontrolled & rolled out to the mass market.

‘There’s no smoke without fire’ used to be my mantra on conspiracy theories, but over time I am starting to doubt the validity of some of them, while confirming others because of the science and what the benefits of hindsight has taught us as a species with the moving target that is covid-19. We have had less than a year’s experience with covid and the indications are it will be with us for some time yet, even with a successful safe vaccine which currently is an unknown.

Think about it. Covid targets the elderly, the infirm and all those with co-morbidities like obesity, diabetes, cancer, CVD, auto-immunity & elevated BP. These groups make up 90% of spending on Health in the Western world. This is starting to sound like a designer disease to wipe out those who are a huge drain on health systems around the planet. And from where I’m coming that’s exactly what it is!

Vaccines need a bare minimum 2 years to assess their benefit and given past controversies over triple vaccines, especially MMR, DPT & Twinrix – the Hep A & B vaccine & others that are known to have higher reaction rates than single vaccines, we need to be super cautious.

Orthodox medicine has covered up much of the negative press on vaccine reactions that span years after the injections, and are very hard to trace back to the originating vaccine because kids are being given so many these days. In Alternative Medicine circles vaccines are increasingly being seen as a significant contributing factor in the increase of weird neurological diseases like MS, PD, ALS and Autism spectrum disorders & some cancers.

More research needs to be done and this is being inhibited by medical authorities around the world because of vested commercial interests within big pharma and organised medicine that are making HUGE profits from vaccines.

Another major concern is the mRNA transcriptase technology in the new Moderna, Pfizer & other covid vaccines. This is a brand-new technology that has potential to permanently change & harm human DNA in ways we know little about. It is effectively genetically modifying humans by vaccination. I personally don’t want to be a guinea pig for that tech and neither should you unless you have a death urge or want to be a part of a huge uncontrolled experiment.

By my brief summary of facts above that are not being exposed in the mainstream media there is real reasons to be concerned. Why isn’t this information being discussed more openly? Why are posts that do try to discuss these being shut down so quickly to stifle debate?

As more information comes to light and as we learn more about how the covid vaccine stacks up we will know more, but until then we would be wise as a species to use the Precautionary Principle as a safety valve. This is not to say that new evidence will not change my mind on the above, it might, and I am open to changing my view if enough scientific evidence warrants it.

But I am firing a warning shot that these new technologies coming thick and fast may not be all they seem. We thought planting gorse and introducing possums was a good thing over 100 years ago in NZ and look what happened. This vaccine has the potential to be far worse. Gorse and possum’s, we can eradicate if we want to, and not with Glyphosate & 1080 either (that’s another story don’t get me started!) but once your DNA is altered, you can’t unscramble an egg.

I don’t want to be a conspiracy denier or a conspiracy theorist, rather a conspiracy factualist. Science deals with facts and absolutes and on the above issues there are many non-scientific assumptions being made, especially the human reactions physically, emotionally & psychologically to what we are all experiencing and how the media portrays what is going on. This has the hallmarks of a classic CIA / NSA / Mossad Black Psyop. I think we need to tread very carefully . . .

The facts do show us that we are seeing unprecedented (yes that word again!) censorship on the internet via Google, You Tube, Facebook and other mainstream media like CNN, Fox, BBC World, Sky TV, TVNZ, TV3, Radio NZ and others that should know better. Any subjects like the ones listed above have been banned. This is the modern equivalent of public book burning like the Nazis did in WW2. Is there a similarity with Nazi Europe that we are seeing playing out 75 years after the supposed end of WW2? Is the Nazis Eugenics agenda of WW2 being repeated but this time with needles, fear & deception instead of bullets, bombs and zyklon B gas?

The one world globalist view that the mainstream narrative is presenting as being ‘the sole source of truth’ by our beloved PM should raise eyebrows and get us thinking rather than accepting without question the validity of what we have just consumed in the media whether it be social, mainstream or alternative. Critical thinking is what is needed here before we jump to conclusions. Using the Precautionary Principle is the wisest course of action until we know more or better.

That aside I want to discuss the positives as I see them when discussing these issues with patients that visit me with very real anxieties about what they are reading and seeing, and friends and family are talking about, around covid. Given the media is deceiving us and the facts around statistics don’t stack up we have good reason to be concerned. This is normal.

Part 2: Staying healthy during Covid, mainstream media, and hidden agendas.

by David Holden, Naturopath & Nutritional Biochemist

In these challenging times during Covid-19 and the coming post Covid-19 era, now more than ever we need to pay attention to our immune system. Medical authorities aren’t telling you what to do other than social distancing, washing your hands and (or not) wearing a face mask.

The reality is there is so much you can do to be proactive to strengthen common immune weaknesses in winter, ideally before the really cold weather hits. In an article of this size I can only cover the basics, we do way more in consults both online and face to face when lockdown level 2 is activated. I won’t go into the politics of Covid-19 here; that’s for a face to face discussion!

There’s more you can to to protect yourself

It takes at least 2-6 weeks to fully elevate immune responses depending on your age, state of health and risk factors. All the research I’ve done shows there are specific nutrients and herbs that can help with immune activation and optimisation. Let’s cover the basics here and if you want something more specific to you please contact us to be tested to find out what your missing, so we can get specific in your particular case.

In a nutshell the key areas to look at are:

The standard advice for Covid-19

All the medical advice above, is obvious, especially hand washing as is well publicised. Face masks especially if you have an infection, mainly to protect others.

Diet for the immune system

Look at your diet, cutting out sugar and refined carbs as much as possible as they weaken the immune system and play havoc with your blood sugar levels adding to immune weakness.

Sleep boosts immunity and healing

Making sure you are sleeping well is crucial for active immunity aiming for 7-8 hours for adults more for teens and pre teens. If you’re not sleeping well contact us as we have options for you!

Supplements against viral infections

Increase your levels of vitamin C, D3, Zinc and vitamin A, especially so you can help prevent colds and flus before they circulate at school and in the workplace. Yes, your kids should be on these too!

But watch out for other factors affecting your immune system!

These are the most potent and indispensable of all the supplements out there to help prevent as much as possible all viral infections; there are many others but it all depends on your budget and your ability to enhance immunity.

The testing we do in the clinic assesses if you have xenobiotic toxins, synthetic chemicals like sprays, insecticide, pesticides, solvents, heavy metals and parasites, not just viruses, bacteria, fungi or worms. These all help suppress immunity and with Phenolic Homeopathy, herbal medicines and specific supplements we can significantly reduce their impact helping your immunity recover.

Nearly every patient we test has significant xenobiotic loading that is not looked at by conventional medicine at all. This is what we do and is a rapid way to restore immunity back to health and vitality. These toxins add to co-morbidities and this is what makes the difference between surviving or not, with serious infections.

Most all the fatalities reported in the media with Covid-19 are with people who have other serious illnesses or who are aged and invariably on a plethora of pharmaceuticals that have their own side (main) effects.

Vitamin C – the different types

We all know the benefits of vitamin C in helping shorten the length or duration of a colds and flus, and there is good evidence that Zinc & vitamin C combined will help prevent colds and flus and certainly shorten their length if taken regularly during the cooler winter months. I can recommend the better-absorbed products that will work more cost-effectively than many products available over the counter, usually at cheaper cost and easier to dose up to effective levels. The key is absorption, especially as we age.

With many formulas available you just don’t get the best absorption especially if you are already immune compromised or over 40. This is why Lypospheric C is best as it is very well absorbed and stays in the blood stream for longer, giving you better protection, but some brands taste disgusting and aren’t easy to use. I use several liquid forms as they taste much better are cheaper than sachet brands and stay active in the blood stream longer than straight vitamin C powders or tabs.

Why is medicine overlooking Intra Venous Vitamin C?

What isn’t being broadcast in the media is that IVC (Intra Venous Vitamin C) will actually eliminate most viruses on contact, as will ozone, but both are expensive to use and ideally should be given in a clinical setting. Many Integrated Doctors are now doing IVC but not Ozone – both are frowned upon by orthodoxy; I won’t go into the politics here but there is little money to be made by drug companies with either!

Vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol – what we now know

But what about vitamin D3? (Not D2 which has minimal immune benefit). This is a fat-soluble vitamin and takes weeks to get up to adequate levels in your system even with high dose supplements. As sunlight is reduced this time of year sunbathing for many in NZ isn’t an option as it gets too grey and cloudy in the winter months.

Vitamin D3 is just as important for immunity as vitamin C, some research shows it is even more important. We use either a liquid form or a spray form that is better absorbed faster. This needs to be a part of your armoury with viruses and bacterial infections of all types, not just Covid-19. Contact me if you want access to the better brands cheaper.

Vitamins C and D combined are brilliant at giving your system that kick it needs to help ward off immune infections of all types including Covid-19, but if you actually get Covid-19 then you do need to seek professional advice as several immune boosters can be detrimental if you get deep lung infections that can cause the “cytokine storm” where the immune system over reacts to the virus and can attack the lungs and all mucous membranes requiring expert medical help and often hospitalisation.

Do not keep taking immune stimulators if you get a bad chest infection without professional advice please! Vitamin C is the only exception to this.

What most people don’t know is vitamin D3 is a potent fat-soluble immune stimulator. You can only get small amounts from foods, larger doses from sunshine which is now becoming harder to get, and from supplements.

If you get sunlight safely over your body it takes at least 4-5 hours before the vitamin D produced in reaction to the sun in the dermal layers of the skin to fully absorb. If you shower within that 4-5 hours with body soap you wash all of the vitamin D produced on the skin down the plug hole! So best to wash with warm water only no soap that day of sun exposure, then wash with soap the next morning to allow the vitamin D produced in response to the sun to be properly absorbed.

Over-the-counter vitamin D3 is often poorly absorbed in tablet form and can be a waste of money. We use a new practitioner-only liquid form or a sublingual spray, which is easy for kids and the elderly to take, and has the best possible absorbency. It is best taken with meals that contain fat in it, like fish or nuts and seeds or flax, chia, or olive oil. I recommend at least 1,000iu daily for kids below age 10 and 2,000iu daily for those below age 14 or under 40kg. In adults up to 5,000iu daily in winter or more if over 90kg or you have immune compromise like a history of colds and flus in winter, or a diagnosed disease like diabetes, arthritis or cancer.

I can get a blood test done for you to find out your exact levels via Lab Test for under $50, the beginning of winter is the best time to get this done. If you want the best vitamin D3 for you contact me via text.

Use vitamins C and Zinc to build immunity over a few weeks

Vitamins C and Zinc are also potent immune builders and require only hours for vitamin C and a couple of weeks for Zinc to build up in your blood stream. This is more important for those with poor diets like teens and small kids as well as fussy eaters and anyone who has elevated work or home life stress levels.

I recommend the Metagenics Meta Zinc & Vitamin C powder which is easy to get into kids and can be added to water or smoothies or any liquid of your choice to boost the levels quickly and easily. If you don’t have a Metagenics account call me and I can set one up for you, it’s easy. Dose is children 4 to 8 years ¼ metric tsp 1 x daily in liquid or sprinkled on food of choice; Children 9 to 13 years ¼ metric tsp TWICE daily as above; Adults & kids over 14 ½ tsp 2 x daily as above, if you have an actual cold or flu or immune health issue you can safely double this dose.

Deficiencies of vitamin C & Zinc combined can increase susceptibility to colds and flus and impact the production of T & B lymphocyte production, and reduce the activity of the Thymus gland producing Thymosin that helps fight all infections in the body. So the importance of these nutrients can’t be over stated when it comes to immune health at this time of the year. Start dosing now and give yourself a head start!

What about vitamin A?

Lastly Vitamin A is specific to protecting all mucous membranes, especially those in the chest, lungs and sinuses. To help prevent chest infections avoid heavy dairy products in your diet like cheeses and ice creams as they stimulate mucous production. Getting enough vitamin A from carrots and carrot juice as well as supplements is really helpful to combat this, best done professionally as you can overdose on preformed vitamin A, but not easily on beta carotene from carrots.

Yes its that time of year when Christmas and the New Year is a distant memory and when we look down – oops! Its time to set the wheels in motion to do a weight loss plan that will not only get rid of excess fat round your middle, and the upper thighs, but also a time to look at how we can make some permanent changes that will help us keep the weight off once we have got down to where we want to be.

In my 30 years of full time clinical practice I have used 3 main weight loss programs and all of them had issues, either expense, time consuming or just plain difficult. With the advent of Dr Michael Mosley’s “The 5:2 Fast Diet” all these issues go out the window! His plan is good, it works because it is based on science. As a science nerd I like that, as it is quantifiable, and we can prove it works with the VLA testing that I do as a part of my new 2020 Weight Loss Plan package.

Importance of the Thyroid in weight loss especially in Women

This plan includes a copy of the book FREE as well as 3 sessions spaced out 2 weeks apart so over 6 weeks you see me 3 times – first session to do baseline Antioxidant testing and Thyroid testing to make sure this is OK. If it isn’t then we need to help restore your Thyroid back to normal correct physiological functioning.

In my experience over many years most GP’s completely miss low thyroids especially in women, as they depend on a simple blood test which doesn’t give all the info needed to accurately assess thyroid function. The thyroid is extra important in helping relay chemical messenger info from the pituitary gland deep in the brain to the ovaries. If the thyroid isn’t functioning properly, ideally at optimum, it will sabotage all efforts to lose weight. It is rather like a car wheel spinning in mud, lots of noise but no motion.

Balancing the thyroid isn’t that hard when you know what you are doing, but it can take a few months to get it right. This is an extra cost (mainly the supplements & herbs) that is not included in the special price offer we are giving you today. But as thyroid is SO important it is vital we tick that box or you won’t lose the weight you want to. If you suffer from tiredness in the mornings, mood swings tending to depression, hard to lose weight and irritable and out of sorts that time of the month for the ladies then suspect thyroid and you will be correct almost all of the time.

So once we get the thyroid regulated then we put you on the Fast Diet where you limit your calories to 500 per day for just 2 days a week for Women and 600 per day for Men. These 2 low cal days as we call them need to be at least 2 days apart. This does 3 things; it trains your brain to accept smaller meals as a norm; it shrinks the stomach so you are satisfied with less on your normal eating days AND it sets you up for getting used to feeling lighter and less full. All of these help re-program your brain into accepting less calories on a regular basis which makes sticking to a healthier diet that much easier after you have finished the diet when you have reached your goal weight.

Age need not be a barrier to weight loss, my elderly mother (bless her she is no longer with us) went on the 5:2 Fast Diet when she was 85 and lost 8 kg in 8 weeks! So if she can do it anyone can. I have used this plan myself and with at least 50 patients in the last year with GREAT results! So I know it works which is why I am offering a money back guarantee!

During the second and third sessions I recheck the Thyroid scores, Antioxidant Scan to make sure you are eating the right foods and getting all your needed nutrients and I redo the VLA test. This accurately tells us exactly how much fat you have lost to 2 decimal places and it breaks down the numbers to fat and ATM muscle. ATM is one thing you don’t want to lose if you can avoid it as this is what keeps your fitness up and improves immunity. I talk you thru it so you get what is the best diet for you, your body type and your age and ethnicity as all of these need to be factored in. So as you can see it is not a one size fits all type plan.

This is one reason why it is so successful, so much so that I am offering a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!! If you pass a simple AK test that tells me if you have stuck to the plan and not cheated and in the unlikely event haven’t lost at least 5 kg then I will refund your money no further questions, but we will ask for the book back!

So what are you waiting for? Call  09 282 3588 or email and book your first weight loss session today before we sell out of the books or the offer expires at the end of this month.
