It usually makes sense to follow the money when seeking understanding of almost any major change. The strategy of following the money in our current convergence of crises in late summer of 2020 leads us directly to the lockdowns. The lockdowns were first imposed on people in the Wuhan area of China. Then other populations throughout the world were told to “shelter in place,” all in the name of combating the COVID-19 virus.

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Your metabolic health has a significant impact on COVID-19 severity, and at least 9 in 10 Americans are metabolically unhealthy
  • One of the classic changes associated with insulin resistance, obesity and metabolic syndrome is overactivation of the innate immune system, with decreasing activity in the adaptive immune system
  • When it comes to healthy aging, it’s not your biological age that matters but, rather, your immune and metabolic age, both of which are malleable and can be improved through simple lifestyle changes
  • Research shows that when blood sugar is well-controlled and there’s less glycemic variability, people do better when contracting COVID-19. When they have high levels of glycemic variability, which is indicative of insulin resistance, they fare much worse

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • During March and April this year, while most of the world enforced more or less strict stay-at-home orders, premature births plummeted by 90% in Denmark and 73% in Ireland, and nearly halved in Canada. Unusual reductions have also been reported in other countries, including Australia, the Netherlands and the U.S.
  • It’s still unknown why the premature birth rate has dropped so dramatically. Doctors speculate it may be because pregnant women have had more rest and less work stress, greater family support, more sleep, fewer infections and reduced air pollution
  • One factor that has not been openly addressed is the reduction in maternal vaccinations. Health officials have expressed concern over declining infant vaccination rates during the pandemic, so maternal vaccination rates may also have dropped
  • The death rate among children in the U.S. has also mysteriously dropped during the lockdowns, from an average of 700 per week to fewer than 500 per week during the months of April and May. Most of this change is attributed to a decline in infant mortality
  • Doctors and researchers suggest reduced vaccination rates during the pandemic may have played a role by reducing the number of infants dying from SIDS

  • The findings contrast with previous research that has linked sleeping with a partner to a poorer quality of sleep
  • REM sleep has a positive role in consolidation of emotionally salient and episodic memories and improves learning and mood
  • REM sleep may enhance the ability to interact socially and reduce the likelihood of developing mental illness, according to the research
  • Presence of a partner can make a sleeping environment seem safer whereas isolated sleep can be a stressor

A lot of us have anxiety and fear for our futures. Maybe all of us do unless we have billions, underground shelters to run to, and years of food stored for the hard times ahead. With the pandemic has come insecurity and even confusion about who to trust and who to ignore. Depression and suicides are rising as are psychotropic drug usage, which has shown an 84 percent increase in sales in the United States. Some doctors in California have even said they are seeing more suicides than virus victims. Continue reading
