Dr Seuss Pesach

Passover Seder Unvite

A renowned doctor has urged us to alter our
Seder plans for this year. here is the official
request from the esteemed Dr. Seuss.

I do not want you in my house
I do not want you or your spouse
I do not wish to eat with you
At Seder one or Seder two

Don't get me wrong, I think you're nice
But the CDC gave out this advice
Ten plagues are enough, you don't need one more
But Elijah can still be welcomed in at your door

This years only guests are Mother, Father, sister or brother
Next year in Jerusalem, we'll say to each other
From now on at each Seder, this story we'll tell
How G-D saved his people with a squirt of Purell

Let's Celebrate Passover (Last Supper) Together Virtually:

Sage advice

From: Peggy Jo

  • When being overtaken by a faster pedestrian or person on a bicycle the person overtaking should annouce which side they intend to pass and the person being overtaken should raise the appropriate arm to indicate that they heard the announcement.
  • Notice the Success Church event on Tuesday.They are using an application by the name of Zoom which is very similar to Skype. These two applications provide organizations with the ability to conduct online group meetings. It is not as nice as a face-to-face meeting but they do allow people in different cities to participate. These applications can be used by groups of people to meet, during the Covid-19 impasse, without the danger of infection.
  • In many cities in our area during the Covid-19 impasse, bars and restaurants closed by order of the Governor are offering carryout meals. Some cities such as Royal Oak are providing free 1/2 hour parking on the street near the establishment. Check in your city and support your local businesses.
  • Since Governor Whitmer has Issued An Executive Order requiring everyone to stay home unless they are on essential business, assume all events will not be taking place.
  • Sing Happy Birthday or Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star two times while washing your hands. It will give you an idea of what 20 seconds is.

Immune Boost Recommendations

From Terry Robinson RPN NAET of New Life Natural Health Center 725 S. Adams, Birmingham, Michigan

Life Allergy Treatment Center's recommendations for boosting your immune system. The following information contains our normal recommendations for keeping your immune system strong during any cold and flu season. We suggest that you follow the suggestions below and have the supplements in your home. The supplements may be purchased at health food stores or online.

Boosting your immune system naturally Cold and flu season is upon us. Protecting your family from those nasty viruses and bacteria is not easy. If you or your loved ones are out in public at all, it is almost impossible to avoid germs. In addition to your regular NAET treatments, here are a number of things you can do to build up your immune system and reduce your chances of catching a cold or flu this flu season.

Maintain Good Gut Health

70% of your immune system is in your gut. Taking Probiotics and eating Fermented foods can reduce gut inflammation and increase germ fighting good bacteria. Along with improved digestion, Probiotics are known to reduce the severity of colds and flu. Avoiding Processed Foods and Sugar Sugar has been proven to dramatically tower immune function increasing your risk of catching foreign invaders like viruses and bacteria. Research against processed food and simple sugar is hard to deny. Simple sugar and processed foods increase inflammatory markers in your blood, decreasing your immune system's ability to respond and control infections.


Research suggest that moderate Physical activity may help flush bacteria out of the lungs and airways. This may reduce your chance of getting a cold, flu, or other illness. Exercise causes changes in antibodies and white blood cells. WBCs are the body's immune system cells that fight disease.

Open windows for a few minutes daily. This will bring fresh air into your home and increase air movement and decrease the risk of catching air borne viruses.

Sleep deprivation suppresses immune system function. Getting at least 7 hours of sleep can bolster your immune function decreasing susceptibility to common colds and flu.

Simple old fashioned hand washing reduces viruses and bacteria on your hands and decreases the spread of germs. Using an essential oil sanitizer on objects like phones, computer desk, and door knobs will help stop the spread of colds and flu.

What is Coronavirus?

From: Don Colbert MD

Interestingly, corona viruses are actually a large family of viruses that are common in many different species of animals. In fact, human corona-viruses are often responsible for the common cold.

However, the current strain is believed to be an animal corona-virus, although experts are unsure from which animal it was contracted.

It was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei province, China. Its symptoms may appear within 2 days of exposure, and up to 14 days. Alarmingly, there is some indication that it may be spread before symptoms appear, making it difficult to contain. It is a respiratory infection, and most symptoms are similar to other respiratory infections, including:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Rare symptoms: Pneumonia Severe acute respiratory syndrome Kidney failure Death (extreme cases)

It's important to note that the vast majority of cases are still in China, and that countries such as the US are taking strong measures to identify any risk of infection in those traveling between our countries.

12 Natural Ways to Reduce Your Risk of the Coronavirus

1. Avoid Travel to China and Neighboring Countries Until the corona virus is well-contained, it is prudent to avoid traveling to China and neighboring countries at this time. Since the cases and deaths in China are still growing, and it has been difficult to control the spread, do what you can to avoid travel to this area of the world is possible.

2. Stay Updated and Aware As the world learns more about the corona virus, and about the implications of those traveling from China to other countries such as the US, we will learn what our true risk is. Especially if you live in an area with a lot of international travel, such as cities with international airports, tune in to stay aware of the cases and risk as it's reported.

3. Wash Hands Throughout the Day Maybe the most important step you can take to reduce your risk of the corona virus and all respiratory viruses is to wash your hands throughout the day.
This means after every time you touch public devices and environments, after eating, after touching or being in close contact with others. All-day long.
If washing isn't practical, you can use a gentle hand sanitizer when needed (they are about 60% as effective as washing). What's more, you can use our essential oil tips below to improve a hand sanitizer's effect.
In addition to washing your hands, avoid touching your face.

4. Be Extra Stingy Our moms may have implored us to share but to reduce your risk of the corona virus and other respiratory illnesses, be extra-stingy. This means don't share your cups, glasses and eating utensils or anything else that comes in contact with other people's faces or hands.
And, wash your hands often.

5. Up Your Vitamin D Vitamin D plays a key role in the immune system, and study after study has shown that bolstered doses decrease winter-time viruses.
A 2017 analysis of more than 11,000 participants in the British Medical Journal showed that those with vitamin D levels of less than 10 mg/ml had a higher risk of respiratory infections compared to those at 10 ng/mL or greater (5).
Yet another study found that 2000 IU of vitamin D resulted in a significantly reduced risk of viral respiratory infections in school-aged children (1).
Other studies point to the same, so try 2000 IU vitamin D per day throughout the winter-virus season and this outbreak.

6. Take Elderberry as a Safe and Effective Virus Fighter Black elderberry (Sambucus nigra) is a traditional berry that is known for its amazing virus and bacteria-fighting properties.
In fact, it helps our bodies make antibodies against influenza, fights viruses, fights streptococcus, and reduces upper respiratory infections (2).
One analysis of 180 participants found that supplementation with elderberry substantially reduced upper respiratory symptoms, with no adverse effects (3).
You can find black elderberry in many commercial preparations, or use our Elderberry Syrup Health Tonic recipe. It includes other virus fighters such as ginger and apple cider vinegar, and it tastes great!

7. Keep Zinc Lozenges On Hand to Disrupt Viruses Zinc is a very interestingly mineral to fight viruses and reduce your risk of coronavirus.
When applied to the site of virus replication, it can actually disrupt the virus's ability to replicate and RNA.
It's for this reason that most benefits from zinc derive when it's used in a throat spray, nasal gel, or lozenge preparation.
Keep these products on hand, and use them at the first sign of viral symptoms (or suspicion of it).

8. Essential Oils in the Air and Skin You can take your hand sanitizing and washing up a notch with essential oils. In fact, essential oils such as tea tree oil, lemon, clove bud, eucalyptus (should not be used with small children), cinnamon cassia, and rosemary are highly anti-viral. If buying them, only buy from reputable companies that use 100% pure essential oils. You can often find "germ-fighting" blends available with many of these oils in one. Essential oils are simply compounds produced by plants to protect themselves from diseases. Their molecular weights allow them to enter our bodies via skin and respiration. But take care. Essential Oils are extremely strong compounds and should be used with caution and as directed here or by a professional aromatherapist: Add approximately 20-30 drops of "germ fighter" essential oils per 1 cup of hand sanitizer or natural soaps and shake well. You can also diffuse these oils throughout your home. Believe it or not, when you inhale them, their compounds can enter your bloodstream and go to work to fight viruses and boost immune function.

9. Use Ashwagandha to Boost Immune Function and Fight Viruses Are you familiar with ashwagandha root? It is an immunomodulating herb that can support health, immune function, and hormone balance. Its scientific name is Withania somnifera, and it has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb. In fact, animal studies have found that it can inhibit viruses and reduce their proliferation (4). It may be especially useful considering the current coronavirus is of animal origin. And if you're interested in the thyroid and hormone benefitting balancing attributes, find relief and boost your immune system with Thyroid Zone – it contains ashwagandha.

10. If You're Sick or Have a Weakened Immune System, Stay Home if Possible Unless it's mandatory for you to be in a public place, consider skipping events and outing if you have a weakened immune system. And if you're sick, stay home.

11. Mind Your Gut Healthy gut bacteria and healthy digestion are extremely important to the immune system. They directly affect it. And unfortunately, they can become weakened from illnesses, antibiotics in medications and foods, and more. It's vital to help your gut thrive. When healthy bacteria and gut health thrive, the immune system improves (5). A great way to help is to take foods and supplements with probiotics and compounds that improve gut health. These include:
  • Plain yogurt
  • Kefir
  • Kombucha
  • Kimchi
  • Collagen with Probiotics (such as Keto Zone Hydrolyzed Collagen)
  • Fermented vegetable powders (like Fermented Green Supremefood)
  • Living foods (like Living Chia with Probiotics) Probiotic supplements, especially those with lac
  • tobacillus acidophilus.

12. Get Enough Sleep You've heard it before: adequate sleep is absolutely crucial for health. In fact, many studies now show that sleep is vital for immune function, fighting chronic disease and viruses, and for brain health (6). What is adequate sleep? Try to get 8-9 hours per day to keep your body healthy and immune system optimal. Detox Your Body for Health Of course, a large part of avoiding viruses, and being able to fight them when you do get them, is an overall healthy lifestyle and strong immune system. We can help. If you'd like to make changes to improve your overall health and supercharge your immune system this
