Two experts I rely upon for the truth are Dr. Joseph Mercola and health guru, “The People’s Chemist,” Shane Ellison, M.S., author of Over the Counter Natural Cures.
You’re familiar with both from here, here, here, and here. Now they may not agree on vitamin D supplementation (Shane doesn’t like it), but, when it comes to protecting your family from COVID-19, both recommend building up your immune system naturally.
In this piece, Shane tools on the billionaire vaccination pushers who want to cure the world with a shot rather than show the benefits of, for example, clean water, washing your hands, and overall good hygiene. You know the story, give a man a fish and feed him for a day, teach him how to fish and feed him for a lifetime.
There are ways to fight the virus by simply taking control of yourself.
First from Dr. Joseph Mercola:
Once the social, economic and medical implications of COVID-19 had a hold on society, all eyes turned from nearly every other environmental and health-related concern to focus solely on the controversies and debates about how to treat and contain the virus and what to do about a vaccine. These are just some of the economic, political and social challenges people are facing:
- The initial panic resulted in the purchase of $3 billion worth of ventilators, 79,295 of which The Washington Post reports are sitting unused.1
- The question of whether or not to wear a maskhas become one of the most hotly contested debates, despite research over the past decade demonstrating cloth masks are ineffective against viruses.2
- Hiding under the guise of “biodefense” and “biomedicine,” a network of virologists, military scientists and biotech entrepreneurs are weaponizing microorganisms and growing an arsenal of Frankenstein pathogens.
But as investigative reporter and bioweapons expert Sam Husseini writes, gain-of-function/biowarfare scientists in labs such as Wuhan, China, and Fort Detrick, Maryland, have been accused of deliberately and recklessly conducting nefarious types of research.3
- As part of Operation Warp Speed, Pfizer struck a $1.95 billion deal to provide the U.S. with 100 million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine to give the U.S. public for “free,” with an option for 500 million more.4
- As some people are considering whether they will submit to yet another vaccine, Yale University is conducting trials to determine the type of message that will maximize the number of people who will accept and use the vaccine.5
In other words, they are testing messages that will trigger an emotional response to raise the potential that you will say yes. This is a blatant and highly sophisticated form of salesmanship. The types of messages under investigation include those that address your personal freedom, self-interest, economic benefit and guilt.
The core message throughout this pandemic should have been how to protect your health and reduce the risk of severe disease. But, it hasn’t been. Instead, minor wars are being waged over financial decisions that may have little to do with you.
Sunlight Negatively Correlated With Positive Testing
Human coronaviruses are named for the appearance of spikes on the surface. There are four main subgroups, the first of which was identified in the mid-1960s. To date, the CDC has identified seven types of coronavirus that can infect humans, including MERS, SARS and SARS-CoV-2.6
Without the fanfare that has accompanied the proposed release of remdesivir, an antiviral medication costing $3,120 per dose to treat COVID-19,7 recently published data again revealed the simple and cost-free act of sensible sun exposure for fighting SARS-CoV-2 and four other human coronaviruses.8
The research team began with the knowledge that RNA viruses, such as human coronaviruses, are sensitive to ultraviolet radiation from the sun and that the “incidence and mortality of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are considered to be correlated with vitamin D levels.”
Using these two points as a foundation, they sought to analyze the correlation between five types of human coronavirus and how much sunlight was needed for a negative test. Measurements were taken from April 17, 2020, to July 10, 2020, during which time the researchers found there was a significant negative correlation in four viruses with the amount of sunlight and a percent positive test.
The U.S. has four census regions, which the researchers used to categorize the findings. Census region No.1 includes the Northeast states bordered in the south by Pennsylvania. Census region No. 2 includes North Central states bordered on the south by Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri and Kansas.
Census No. 3 includes the Southern states bordered on the west by Texas and on the east by Florida’s Atlantic coast. Census region No. 4 is the West Coast, boarded on the east by Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico.
Data indicate census regions 1 and 2 had a significant negative correlation with sunlight exposure (meaning sunlight reduced coronavirus infection), while regions 3 and 4 had a minimal positive correlation that was not statistically significant. The difference in these two areas may be explained by the significant heat during those months, driving people indoors to air conditioning.
Vitamin D Deficiency at Pandemic Levels
Deficiencies have been found in countries in the Southern Hemisphere where it was assumed there was enough exposure to UV radiation to prevent a vitamin D deficiency.9 However, a variety of factors likely influence this difference. For instance, the authors of one literature review found that women from the Middle East were particularly low in vitamin D.10
However, since many people in Middle Eastern countries practice Islam and the women do not go outside unless they are fully covered, the skin’s ability to produce vitamin D with exposure to the sun is inhibited.11
Another study involved the use of an international Vitamin D Standardization Program led by the National Institutes of Health to evaluate 14 population studies.12 The data showed that regardless of age, ethnicity or latitude, 13% of the 55,844 Europeans who were tested had serum vitamin D levels less than 12 ng/mL (30 nmol/L).
When an alternate level of deficiency was used, less than 20ng/mL (50 nmol/L), the prevalence was even higher at 40.4%. Additionally, when the group was subdivided by ethnicity, the data showed people with dark skin had a much higher level of deficiency than white populations, at rates of up to 71 times higher.
Sunscreen Advice Counter to Lifesaving Vitamin D
Remarkably, as the importance of vitamin D becomes more widely recognized, some doctors are continuing to advise against sensible sun exposure, vitamin D supplementation or both. For example, Dr. Pieter Cohen is an internal medicine physician at Cambridge Health Alliance in Massachusetts who has not recognized the importance of vitamin D at this time.
In an interview with Today, Cohen told the reporter he strongly discourages people from even getting a vitamin D test, and went on to say:13
“We don’t recommend vitamin D to our patients and I see no credible evidence that vitamin D has a role in either preventing or treating COVID-19. We might have evidence in the future that evolves and would change our opinion, but that’s the status here.
I would discourage anyone from thinking that any pill is going to resolve this problem. It’s going to be the meticulous social distancing, hand washing [and] wearing a mask that [are] going to be the key.”
As sensible sun exposure and vitamin D supplementation are relatively innocuous with little to no side effects when done appropriately, it seems rather peculiar to recommend people should not even be tested or take a supplement for the potential benefit they may receive.
The advice to use sunscreen while getting “incidental” exposure is also medically incorrect, since sunscreen filters out the ultraviolet rays that stimulate vitamin D production in your skin.
In order for sensible sun exposure to work, your skin must be unprotected, and you should be sure you don’t get sunburned. Stay out until your skin turns the lightest shade of pink and then cover with long sleeves and pants.
Positive Tests and Deaths Declined Over the Summer
Many respiratory illnesses decline over the summer. While it’s still possible to get a cold or flu, it’s less likely during the summer months. Since mid-July, indicators from the CDC show COVID-like illnesses and positive tests have declined in the U.S.14
The CDC also gathers data to tally the number of deaths from COVID-19 and pneumonia while excluding flu. The first death in this category was recorded February 22, 2020.15
The number peaked the week of April 18, 2020, at 7,292 deaths. By end of June the number had dropped significantly to 1,530. However, as a new report from the CDC reveals, 94% of the deaths attributed to COVID-19 happened in people who had other significant health conditions and contributing causes.16
For only 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the single cause on the death certificate. To make this comparison, it’s the difference between an individual dying FROM COVID-19 versus WITH COVID-19, since for many with a positive test they are asymptomatic and therefore do not qualify as a “case” of COVID-19 but, rather, as a positive test.
Some of the top contributing conditions were cardiac arrest, heart or renal failure, vascular or unspecified dementia, and influenza and pneumonia.17 In addition to rising vitamin D levels during the summer months, there are other factors that influence the transmission of infectious diseases and slow the spread. For instance, influenza is affected by both temperature and humidity.18
In one study conducted in New South Wales, Australia, researchers found a similar connection between humidity and COVID-19. A 1% decrease in humidity was predicted to increase the number of cases by 6.11%.19 In a separate study, the addition of a humidifier in the bedroom demonstrated a decrease in the survival of influenza virus, by 17.5% to 31.6%.20
During the cold winter months, people also spend more time indoors, in enclosed spaces with less ventilation. The same can be said during the heat of the summer when people seek relief indoors with air conditioning. During the fall and winter months, school is usually in session, which has been associated with a higher transmission of respiratory viruses.
Marc Lipsitch, professor of epidemiology and director of the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health also notes:21
“It is possible that the condition of the average person’s immune system is systematically worse in winter than summer. One hypothesis has focused on melatonin which has some immune effects and is modulated by the photoperiod, which varies seasonally. Another with more evidence is that vitamin D levels, which depend in part on ultraviolet light exposure (higher in summer) modulate our immune system in a positive way.”
Combine These Strategies With Raising Your Vitamin D Level
Vitamin D optimization is a powerful and beneficial strategy to protect your health. In my free report on vitamin D I’ve developed a resource you can use to share and help educate others. The only way you’ll know your vitamin D level is to test it. GrassrootsHealth has a home test kit that is simple to use and provides you with results at home.22
You’ll find a calculator at GrassrootsHealth.net that uses your current weight, serum level and daily supplement intake to estimate how much vitamin D3 you need to reach your desired vitamin D level.23 Yet, while crucial, it’s not the only thing available to help protect your health.
It’s particularly important to become metabolically flexible to help reduce the severity of a COVID-19 infection. The single most important step to attaining and maintaining metabolic flexibility is to reduce the number of hours during the day in which you eat.
The use of molecular hydrogen is another strategy, as it’s a powerful antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory agent. Using quercetin with zinc can further lower your risk. Quercetin acts as a zinc ionophore24 and has its own antiviral effects.25
One of the best treatments today is the MATH+ Protocol, first developed by the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance.26 It’s designed to be used when someone is hospitalized and needs supplemental oxygen. You’ll find further information about each of these strategies in “How to Fix the COVID-19 Crisis in 30 Days.”

And from the People’s Chemist CEO, Jeff Milano:
CEO Warning: Mandatory Vaccines
(LOW STOCK ALERT)
Over a decade ago, The People’s Chemist told you that the Gates Foundation was pushing for mandatory vaccines…even though clean water, proper sanitation, soap and nutrition proved to be more effective than shots at boosting immunity and keeping you alive!
Don’t think for one moment that it’s just Bill Gates pushing that agenda!
The Gates Foundation involves many people, partners and organizations. Its main goal is to push governments around the world to pay for vaccinating the masses – in the name of health.
Owner of Amazon and Whole Foods, Jeff Bezos is on board, too!
The billionaires club just announced:
“Washington (AFP) – The wealthy Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation called Wednesday for global cooperation to ready COVID-19 vaccines for seven billion people, while offering $150 million toward developing therapeutics and treatments for the virus.”
Fact: No vaccine will ever stop infectious diseases from breeding in toxic water, lack of sanitation, dirty hospitals, filthy hands or a malnourished body!
And no chemist, doctor, virologist, bacteriologist or immunologist in their right mind could say that it does.
But, there’s no money in clean water, nutrition and soap. The only return is the satisfaction of raising mankind’s standard of health, living and self-respect.
That’s why private organizations, fueled by Big Pharma only care about vaccines.
It’s always about big money.
It’s easier to just jab someone with a needle and fly home a lot richer on your private jet…
Better yet, get some altruistic doctor to do it for you, for free. #DoctorswithoutBorders
According to a Marketwatch.com article from January 21, 2016, “…pharmaceutical corporations who produce vaccines will reach an estimated $61 billion in profits by 2020.”
For every $1 spent, the manufacturers get back $44.
Now, while the mainstream media is busy scaring everyone with COVID-19, some billionaires with nothing better to do, are playing chess with our future and our politics.
There’s no money in creating hysteria, unless you use it to create demand for something very profitable like a vaccine.
What if the more than 2,000 billionaires worldwide helped poverty-stricken areas develop clean water, better sanitation, good cleaning practices, and sustainable farming?
That’s a better game. Everyone wins.
Giving someone a vaccine, but returning them to an area that lacks clean water, proper sanitation, soap and basic nutritional resources is just greed manifested.
It’s criminal, because it ignores the cause of infectious disease.
Instead of scheming for profits on another vaccine failure against a 98.8% recovery rate… wouldn’t it make more sense to help boost natural immunity?
A strong, responsive immune system is superior to any medication or vaccine. Because without that – nothing will help you.

Herd Immunity: Why It Doesn’t Hold Up And How To Get Natural Immunity!
From Shane “The People’s Chemist” Ellison, M.S.
- Bachelor’s degree in biology
- Master’s degree in organic chemistry

Herd immunity is a hypothesis plucked out of an old college text book. It states that large groups of immune people can protect those who are immune compromised or unvaccinated.
In other words, herd immunity serves as a human shield—a type of immunity—for “at-risk” individuals.
Without question, vaccines are said to induce it. But that’s ridiculous because vaccine-induced immunity is not herd immunity…in fact, herd immunity doesn’t exist.
I’ll prove it.
To test herd immunity, you simply have to monitor a highly vaccinated (or even naturally-immune) group for an outbreak. If even one person among the herd is infected and there’s a spread—then obviously, herd immunity doesn’t work.
This is exactly what has been observed.
In Corpus Christi, where the vaccine rate was 99%, measles was undeterred. Scientists writing for The New England Journal of Medicine documented the spread of an outbreak among adolescents who had received their shots. The scientists concluded that, “outbreaks of measles can occur in secondary schools, even when more than 99 percent of the students have been vaccinated and more than 95 percent are immune.”
Echoing these findings, The American Journal of Public Health showed a 98% vaccine rate at a Massachusetts high school. This high rate didn’t stop a measles outbreak from erupting among the heavily vaccinated “herd.”
Proponents of herd immunity usually insist that outbreaks should be met with yet more vaccines, reaching as high as 100% . . . but that’s no longer herd immunity, that would be vaccine-induced protection, by definition.
Even then, it fails too because shots don’t spur immunity like germ exposure does in nature – which is how natural immunity is supposed to work!
In Illinois the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) documented an outbreak despite a 100% vaccine rate in a high school in Sangamon County.
In Emerging Infectious Diseases, scientists discovered whooping cough outbreaks among fully “immunized” populations of children as well. Their research—published by the CDC—found that, “Vaccinated adolescents and adults may serve as reservoirs for silent infection and become potential transmitters to unprotected infants.”
You can go as far back as the first test tube and find these same results, repeated numerous times among different “herds.” That’s because herd immunity (as well as vaccine-induced immunity) does not fully exist outside of textbooks and pharmaceutical propaganda.
In other words, you could vaccinate EVERYONE and there could still be an outbreak! That’s what science has proven for decades!
Ignoring or refusing to learn the facts when outbreaks arise, health officials are quick to state that this vaccine failure is due to a breakdown in “herd immunity.”
Doctors parrot it, too, without even looking at the research. They say it’s happening more often nation- wide as states make it easier for parents to opt out of vaccinations.
Like argumentative apes, pro-vaccine parents and their physicians start pounding their chests in favor of such statements. More incredulously, they attack anti-vaccine parents, accusing them of “putting vaccinated kids at risk due to a breakdown in herd immunity.”
This is fuzzy logic. And it’s borderline stupid.
After all, if vaccines truly worked, why would vaccinated kids be at risk? Isn’t the vaccine supposed to protect them?
Ultimately, the facts are clear. Senselessly jabbing tribes of kids with dozens of new-fangled shots isn’t going to help anyone.
Herd immunity is nothing more than a silly catch-phrase—spawned by those who profit from vaccines—used to scare and bully parents into vaccinating their children.
If pro-vaccine advocates, the media, and doctors truly cared about protecting kids, they’d stop using an unproven hypothesis like herd immunity to question parents who opt out. Instead, a more level-headed approach would be to question the obvious factors that are detracting from our children’s health:
- A lack of herd immunity
- Waning vaccine efficacy
- Vaccine failure
- The spread of disease by the vaccinated
Healthy skepticism can go a long way in asking the obvious question: Are vaccines safe and effective for my kids?
====> There’s a better way: Natural immunity. And nature has given us a phenomenal way to activate IMMUNITY without vaccines or meds!
