Coronavirus Crisis: The Unexpected Gift to Narcissists
Post Date: 2020-04-07 17:07:38 by Gatlin
Coronavirus Crisis: The Unexpected Gift to Narcissists The pandemic forces a reset of self-aggrandizing demands for control. You probably know at least one of them, and as a practicing psychologist in New York City, I have treated many of them. The narcissist is that person in your life who always seems to crave admiration, often acts entitled and selfish, and more often than not seems unable to experience genuine empathy for the emotional hurt and suffering of others. The narcissist is often a victim of their own deeply embedded insecurities and poor parenting, which failed to teach the importance of humility, emotional generosity, and the ability to put oneself in touch with the ...

7 Ways to Use the Current Crisis for Personal GrowthAlthough the pandemic is awful, some good may come from it. Let me begin with a question: Could the COVID-19 crisis be seen as a personal growth opportunity? At first blush, you would probably say, Absolutely no way! The current pandemic has created crises of health and financial markets that are disrupting the lives of almost everyone on our planet. People the world over are getting sick and dying, global economies are facing a recession, and the financial futures of many people are at risk. COVID-19 has taken a world that, for many people, was safe and secure, and forced us to confront a new world that is ever-changing, ...

Post Date: 2020-04-03 20:53:53 by Gatlin
President Trump announced new guidance Friday that people in the U.S. wear face coverings in public to slow the spread of the coronavirus, a reversal of the administrations earlier recommendations. But Trump immediately said he himself would not choose to do it, even though it may be good advice, reflecting the sharp debate in recent days between the White House and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. a man standing in front of a building: A man wears a face covering as her walks past the White House April 3, 2020.

Face coverings recommended, but Trump says he won’t wear one
Post Date: 2020-04-03 20:47:33 by Gatlin
WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump announced new federal guidelines Friday recommending that Americans wear face coverings when in public to help fight the spread of the new coronavirus. The president immediately said he had no intention of following that advice himself, saying, Im choosing not to do it. The new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encourages people, especially in areas hit hard by the spread of the coronavirus, to use rudimentary coverings like T-shirts, bandannas and non-medical masks to cover their faces while outdoors. The president exempted himself from his administrations own guidelines, saying he could ...
Tensions Persist Between Trump and Medical Advisers Over the Coronavirus
Post Date: 2020-04-03 20:40:11 by Gatlin
WASHINGTON Rarely has the schism between President Trump and his own public health advisers over the coronavirus pandemic been put on display quite so starkly. Even as he announced a new federal recommendation on Friday that Americans wear masks when out in public, he immediately disavowed it: I am choosing not to do it. The striking dichotomy underscored how often Mr. Trump has been at odds with the medical experts seeking to guide his handling of the outbreak as well as some of the governors fighting it on the front lines, despite his move to extend social distancing guidelines through April 30 and his acknowledgment that the death toll could be staggering. While ...
New Study Confirms Exercise is one of the Keys to Build Your Immune System for Corona Virus
Post Date: 2020-04-03 05:18:16 by Deckard
It appears that about 80% of those that died in China and Italy from COVID-19 were over 60-70. But for those that were younger, especially those in NY, it appears that obesity was one of the most common characteristics. This is likely related to insulin resistance that can be radically improved with diet strategies like Time Restricted Eating This new study in the journal Nutrients details precisely how exercise improves your immune system. There are many types of exercise but my absolute favorite is blood flow restricted training that I detail extensively in this article from earlier this year One of the reasons it is so useful is that BFR increases nitric oxide which is now being studied ...

Post Date: 2020-03-30 12:47:29 by Willie Green
Houston Methodist Hospital doctors were all ready to go, but even they were a bit surprised late Saturday afternoon when word came down from the Food and Drug Administration. They could transfuse the blood from a former COVID-19 patient into one severely ill at the moment. The Methodist team sprang into action, using just-donated blood from a Houston-area individual whose symptoms had gone away weeks ago but whose antibodies to the coronavirus were now at optimal levels. By Saturday night, the blood was coursing through not just one but two COVID-19 patients in intensive care at Methodist. With that, the Houston hospital became the nations first to enlist convalescent serum ...
Pot Shops Called “Essential Infrastructure” As Commerce Shuts For Coronavirus
Post Date: 2020-03-24 12:50:16 by Willie Green
As state governments curb commerce to stop the spread of Covid-19, cannabis dispensaries are generally being categorized as essential infrastructure listed alongside pharmacies as too important to close. Even recreational retailers are remaining open because some patients purchase their cannabis there. All this, despite marijuana remaining on the federal governments Schedule One list of harmful substances defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use. In Californias Bay Area, which was among the earliest to come under heavy restrictions in the wake of the pandemic, some counties allowed marijuana retailers to stay open with social distancing in ...

The fraudstream media is truly the enemy of the American people. Late last week President Donald Trump announced a new medical treatment that includes malaria drug chloroquine and Z-pac cocktail to battle the coronavirus. There are three international studies that show the combination is very effective in treating the coronavirus and also acts as a prophylactic. We reported on the success of Chloroquine earlier today and this week. The propagandists in the media however are desperate to make President Trump look like a murdering liar so they spread one of the biggest hoaxes yet in the Coronavirus news cycle.

House pares back paid sick and family leave benefits in coronavirus bill
Post Date: 2020-03-18 18:20:59 by A Pole
House lawmakers scaled back their efforts Monday night to offer millions of Americans paid sick and family leave, a weak link in the nation's fight to contain the spread of the coronavirus. [...] The revised legislation would still provide many workers with up to two weeks of paid sick leave if they are being tested or treated for coronavirus or have been diagnosed with it. Also eligible would be those who have been told by a doctor or government official to stay home because of exposure or symptoms. Under the revised bill, however, those payments would be capped at $511 a day, roughly what someone making $133,000 earns annually. The original measure called for workers to receive ...

'Insane and Cruel': Watch Nurse Rip Question on How US Can Afford to Make Coronavirus Vaccine Free
Post Date: 2020-03-10 08:59:34 by A Pole
Speaking at a coronavirus roundtable in Detroit Monday alongside Sen. Bernie Sanders and public health experts, registered nurse Deborah Burger forcefully shot down a question on how the United States can afford to make any COVID-19 vaccine free for everyone in the country, noting that no one asks that question of other vaccines or America's endless wars overseas. Burger, president of National Nurses United (NNU), pointed out that "nobody asked how you pay for" the Polio vaccine "because what they saw were children in iron longs that were going to be damaged forever." "How insane and cruel is it," Burger continued, "to suggest that we have to figure ...

New science proves that vaccines SPREAD infectious disease, causing up to 15 times MORE infections among fully vaccinated children
Post Date: 2020-01-25 00:27:42 by Deckard
A new peer-reviewed scientific paper published in the journal Tropical Diseases, Travel Medicine and Vaccines has found that the DTaP vaccine for diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough) is causing children who receive it to become more prone to contracting whooping cough later on in life. According to the study, children who receive the entire DTaP series of vaccinations are up to 15 times more likely to contract whooping cough at the five-year mark following these jabs compared to unvaccinated children, completely obliterating the myth that whooping cough outbreaks are the result of anti-vaxxers. As it turns out, the vast majority of children being affected by ...

FDA Designates Psilocybin as “Breakthrough Therapy” for Severe Depression
Post Date: 2019-11-30 03:30:02 by Deckard
For years, those who have been following and even participating in the benefits of psilocybin have understood and read about the ability of magic mushrooms to combat a number of ailments. From helping the terminally ill come to grips with their own mortality to treating PTSD and depression psilocybin has a wide range of benefits. Up until recently, however, the government has ignored these benefits and prosecuted those for seeking them out. All that is now changing though, and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has just granted Breakthrough Therapy status to psilocybin for its ability to clinically treat depression. It is estimated that roughly 7% of the entire ...
AmericaÂ’s Largest Health Insurer Is Giving Apartments to Homeless People
Post Date: 2019-11-07 11:31:38 by Anthem
In 1986, Congress enacted a law to bar hospitals from turning away patients who are unable to pay. Any hospital with an emergency room that participates in federal health programs must evaluate and stabilize every patient who comes through the door, including those who are uninsured, indigent, addicted to drugs, or mentally ill. No institution has a similar obligation to ensure that those people have a safe place to sleep. As a society, weve effectively decided that people shouldnt die on the street, but its acceptable for them to live there. There are more than half a million homeless in the U.S., about a third of them unshelteredthat is, living on streets, under ...
Should You Get A Flu Shot?

Post Date: 2019-10-01 08:07:40 by Gatlin
A vaping-related death in Nebraska has brought the national death toll from lung illnesses linked to e-cigarette use to at least 15 people. The state's first vaping death comes amid more than 800 cases of the lung illness that have been reported across the country. Nebraska's Department of Health and Human Services did not identify the person who died but said the individual was over 65 years old and from the Douglas County area. The state's epidemiologist Dr. Tom Safranek said Monday that vaping-associated lung injuries were unreported and not tracked by public health agencies prior to the emergence of hundreds of cases across the country in recent weeks. What are Dank ...
Just A Handful Of Nuts May Help Keep Us From Packing On The Pounds As We Age
Post Date: 2019-10-01 07:50:31 by Gatlin
Eating a handful of almonds, walnuts, peanuts or any type of nut on a regular basis may help prevent excessive weight gain and even lower the risk of obesity, new research suggests. It may be that substituting healthy nuts for unhealthy snacks is a simple strategy to ward off the gradual weight gain that often accompanies aging, according to the researchers. Nuts also help us feel full longer, which might offset cravings for junk food. Researchers looked at the diet and weight of more than 280,000 adults taking part in three long-term research studies. Over more than 20 years of monitoring, participants were asked every four years about their weight and, among other things, how often, ...
