There is no treatment for the cold and flu

“There is no treatment for the cold and flu” (that you can do at home)

This statement is the root of a narrative that has changed the world.

I am not here to argue the safety or efficacy of any specific pharmaceutical interventions.

I am here to serve my duty, as should all believers, to stand up for the truth. 

And the truth is:

There are things you can do at home to treat viral infections.  There’s a lot you can do at home.  All of this is ignored, and forever will be, by those seeking to conceal the truth.

(For the TLDR version, scroll down to the References at the bottom of this article).

It does not matter who I am or what titles come after my name.  What matters, is the message and its contents.  If you are a believer, then you would know that it has always been the message that matters.

We are specifically told:

Quran 2:42

َ وَلَا تَلْبِسُوا الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُوا الْحَقَّ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ [٢:٤٢]

Wala talbisoo alhaqqa bialbatili wataktumoo alhaqqa waantum taAAlamoona [English Transliteration]

And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know [it]. [Sahih International]

What is the truth?

Now, how does one get to know what the truth actually is?

I believe that there are 2 main questions we ask ourselves, when determining whether we choose to believe in something or not.  Let’s call this our ‘decision tree’:

  1. Is it coming from someone I trust?
    1. I trust those people and/or organizations which, in the past, have given me truthful information and have proven themselves trustworthy.
  2. Does it make sense to me?
    1. We were all blessed with logic and reasoning.
    2. This is what allows us to differentiate good from evil (in most cases).
    3. This is what allows us to ‘feel’ the truth.  You hear it all the time when people say they have a ‘gut feeling’, or say ‘this doesn’t feel right’ when being misled into a dark and fearful place, regardless of how much assurance they are given by others.
    4. (Now’s a good moment to make a supplication to our creator and be thankful for all that we have been blessed with.  Ameen.)

Who do you trust, and why?

Everyone would have a different answer here.  But there is some commonality.

A few common responses:

  1. I trust the government.  They’ve always been mostly helpful, and we’re lucky to have a democratic government, compared to some places.
  2. I trust my doctor.  They’ve always helped me whenever I have had any kind of problem.

How about trusting yourself?  How about trusting the fact that it’s possible for YOU to know whether something is true or false?

Or are we so far gone that we are no longer capable of doing that?  Do we truly believe it’s a good thing to have ‘outsourced’ that trust?

Coming full circle

Think about every time alnnabiyyeena (the Prophets, peace be upon them) tried to deliver their message of truth to almushrikeena (the polytheists).

What do you think went through people’s heads at the time?  See the following verse:

Quran 26:186

وَمَا أَنتَ إِلَّا بَشَرٌ مِّثْلُنَا وَإِن نَّظُنُّكَ لَمِنَ الْكَاذِبِينَ [٢٦:١٨٦]

Wama anta illa basharun mithluna wain nathunnuka lamina alkathibeena [English Transliteration]
You are but a man like ourselves, and indeed, we think you are among the liars. [Sahih International]

People likely went through the same decision tree mentioned above.  Many decided to distrust the message based on their distrust in who the messenger happened to be.

However, a select few decided to believe, based on the message itself and not based on who the messenger was.  Their decision tree went like this:

  1. Do I trust this person?
    1. No.  He’s just a regular man, like myself.
    2. Why should I listen to what he says, when everyone around me tells me it’s all propaganda and lies?
  2. Does the message make sense to me?
    1. Yes.  Even though what he is saying goes against what everyone else wants me to believe.
    2. When I put the message into practice, it works, and that makes me believe it is the truth.
    3. Even though the authorities tell me it is false.
    4. Even though every single person around me thinks it’s false.
    5. Even though I will face punishment and oppression from society if I take it to be the truth.

There it is.

Those select few within the population believed the message, because it made sense to them and because when they tried it, it worked.  Those select few began to spread the message, further and further, until they earned the trust of the masses.  Until they were able to satisfy #1 in the decision tree of the people.

That is the root of our belief.  That is the root of our iman.

Our iman is based on following the truth, regardless of what anyone else says, does, or thinks about it.

Because it’s something which we feel, which we know, deep in our hearts, to be the truth.

Advice when you need it most

Have you, or your loved ones, gotten sick during this pandemic?

Have you ever felt your life slowly being taken away from you?  With each breath you take becoming shallower, and shallower?

You’re so lethargic that you can barely stand up, much less walk around.

Your fever is relentless, your body aches.

Your life is in pieces, as you are unable to see your loved ones for fear of spreading this disease to them and hurting them.

At the end of a 2 minute long coughing fit, you recall hearing advice from 2 different groups.  We’ll call them Group 1 and Group 2:

  1. Group 1: 
    1. “I’m sorry to hear about your discomfort. 
    2. It is a deadly disease and the cases are rising daily.
    3. You can take over-the-counter drug A to help with the pain.
    4. If it gets any worse, go to the emergency room immediately.
    5. P.S.:  Do not listen to any other suspicious advice.  There is a lot of propaganda being spread at this time.  The only solution is to wait for Prevention A to be available to the public.”
  2. Group 2:
    1. “I feel your pain, as that is a brutal condition and I’ve seen the suffering it can inflict on those who have it.
    2. I’ve discovered Solution B, which is backed up by XYZ studies, and have given it to a number of people with extremely positive results.  They’re almost back to normal after a few days.
    3. I have prepared everything you need to know in a free, easy to read book.  Here is the link.”

In order to figure out what to do, again, we go through the decision tree:

  1. Do I trust ..
    1. Group 1?  Yes, I trust the public health authorities.
    2. Group 2?  No.  Sometimes I’ve followed their advice when it’s a home remedy or something, and it has usually helped me.  It may not have always helped, but it has never harmed me, that’s for sure.
  2. Does what they’re saying make sense ..
    1. Group 1?  No.  I get that the hospitals are full.  I get that it’s a deadly disease, because I am experiencing it right now!  But you are not giving me any help, and on top of that you are telling me to reject any possible solutions.
    2. Group 2?  Yes.  I have read through the material and what they have shown me is reasonable and makes sense.  I have used those vitamin, mineral, and food supplements before.  Not quite at that dosage and frequency, but have also read the studies showing minimal to no adverse effects from those dosages, contrary to what Group 1 is telling me.

What do I have to lose?

Whether you follow Group 2 or not really comes down to what you have to lose.

If Solution B involves vitamin, mineral, and food supplements that you have heard about and have used in limited quanties before, but they say that their protocol involves higher quantities, then you have to think about it and decide:  Could that be harmful to me?  Or do I have nothing to lose because I am so sick and nothing else has helped so far?

This is the part where you need to have trust in yourself and what’s best for your body.  This is the part where many decide that they are better off outsourcing this to health professionals.

In the end, you need to decide if you prefer to trust yourself, or trust others, in knowing what’s best for your body and your future.  Always remember that whatever path you take, you will have to live with the consequences of that decision.  Which sometimes is a case of either: 

  1. relying on those whose job is to promote chronic illness (unintentionally or not), OR
  2. simply taking an extra couple steps in order to learn, experiment a little, and lead a life of optimal health

Conclusion

What if I told you that Solution B is real.  That it is out there, it is being used, and it is saving lives that likely would have been lost (following Group 1’s advice).  See references section below for the single best reference you need.

The fact that this information is being swept under the rug is a clear violation of the ayaat mentioned above (concealing the truth).  It is not only being swept under the rug, but those who try to speak out about it are oppressed.

The question we need to ask ourselves is:

Did we side with those who tried to oppress alnnabiyyeena (the Prophets, peace be upon them) and their messages of truth?

If not, then why are we doing it now?  Why are we concealing the truth and supporting falsehood?

In closing, let us reflect upon what we are told about the qualities of الصَّالِحِينَ (the righteous):

(and may we all do our best to live by these characteristics, ameen)

Quran 25:72

وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَشْهَدُونَ الزُّورَ وَإِذَا مَرُّوا بِاللَّغْوِ مَرُّوا كِرَامًا [٢٥:٧٢]

Waallatheena la yashhadoona alzzoora waitha marroo biallaghwi marroo kiraman [English Transliteration]

And [they are] those who do not testify to falsehood, and when they pass near ill speech, they pass by with dignity. [Sahih International]

Quran 28:55

وَإِذَا سَمِعُوا اللَّغْوَ أَعْرَضُوا عَنْهُ وَقَالُوا لَنَا أَعْمَالُنَا وَلَكُمْ أَعْمَالُكُمْ سَلَامٌ عَلَيْكُمْ لَا نَبْتَغِي الْجَاهِلِينَ [٢٨:٥٥]

Waitha samiAAoo allaghwa aAAradoo AAanhu waqaloo lana aAAmaluna walakum aAAmalukum salamun AAalaykum la nabtaghee aljahileena [English Transliteration]

And when they hear ill speech, they turn away from it and say, “For us are our deeds, and for you are your deeds. Peace will be upon you; we seek not the ignorant.” [Sahih International]

How to protect yourself against the Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Part 2

In reading the news today, it became apparent to me that there are an overwhelming amount of Coronavirus articles in mainstream news that focus on information that is, essentially, useless.

Breaking news

X new cases of Coronavirus in city Y

  Okay – so, uh, a lot more people are testing positive.

What do you want me to do now, besides feel more scared? 

Lock my windows and doors even tighter?

Wash my hands some more?

Usefulness rating

Another example:

“I am going to the gym today and am going to do 50 push-ups there.”

Yes, you’ve gotten information on my whereabouts and what I’m going to do, but that’s about it. 

What would be its ‘usefulness’ rating on a scale from 1 to 10?  Probably a 1, or 2, tops.

How about:

“I’m going to the gym today and am going to focus on exercises that build my core, such as push-ups and planks.  Here’s the source that I’m following for these exercises ..”

That is a bit more useful, wouldn’t you say?  That probably has a usefulness rating of 5.  But wait, a comparable article on COVID-19 might be too useful to post, perhaps. People can’t handle all that usefulness, remember?

That being said, let’s actually look at some articles that don’t just focus on washing your hands or sanitizing everything and your dog:

The headline for these would probably read something like:

Breaking news:

Here’s what you can REALLY do to protect yourself against the Coronavirus

Here’s what you can do to help yourself so much that these breaking news articles will stop because not only will confirmed cases stop rising, but you will feel better than you ever have in your entire life.

I’ll let you know once I find this.  In the meantime, the above links will hopefully get you closer to that goal.

How to protect yourself against the Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Part 1

Disclaimer:

Lucky for you, I am not a “medical professional”. 

Just someone who believes in optimizing the healing power of the bodies we have been given – by following things like common sense and the wisdom passed down from our ancestors.

The list before the list

  1. If you believe that the only source of healing comes from a pill, then this may be the perfect opportunity for you to regain trust in yourself, in your body, in what you think is best, rather than what someone else thinks is best.
  2. The beauty of following natural methods is that you have nothing to lose.  There are no side effects, no major consequences – just potential improvement. 
  3. You try things, and if they don’t work, then you haven’t lost anything.  At the very least, you gained knowledge in knowing what doesn’t work for you.  So you don’t waste your time in the future.  So you can focus on figuring something else out that WILL eventually work.
  4. That being said, the idea is to not only protect yourself from “trending” illnesses such as the Coronavirus, but to just generally optimize your well-being.

The list

  1. Eating close to how your ancestors did, assuming science backs it up.
    i. This doesn’t mean following any specific or trending diet. This is just doing what makes sense to do and what other healthy people did before you.
    ii. For example, if you know that men in your lineage ate a lot of bread and they were generally healthy, then maybe that’s OK for you. However, don’t forget the context. The bread of old is not the bread of today. The bread of the past was not made in a factory and was not made for mass production. It was not made as quickly and cheaply as possible. It was made in a way that made sense. In a way that they found others before them doing, which was using slow fermentation / sourdough.
    iii. So use that knowledge and prepare foods in a way that science has proven to make them more digestible. More information here: https://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/food-features/be-kind-to-your-grains-and-your-grains-will-be-kind-to-you/
  2. Putting yourself in an environment that your ancestors were in, which science will back up.
    i. Were your grandfathers of old locked up in a house and looking at a blue-light emitting screen all day?
    ii. No, that’s right, they were probably doing something outside. You do remember outside, don’t you?
    iii. I can appreciate how difficult this is, and am finding the same myself.
    iv. The closest thing I’ve found these days is getting into gardening or sports. These are just simulations, of course. They are not the same as actually being outside and doing things because you HAVE to do them. That is a very important point that we will touch on later.

Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for more.
