    Medcram: Improving The Immune System, Anxiety, and Depression

In this video, Dr Seheult provides a great deep dive into the interaction of the mental, physical, and emotional in the human experience – and as importantly, some simple remedies that we can use that have been shown to have substantial material effect on our own systems.

In other words, Dr Seheult is providing us with a path to Agency.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnvdUAiTw54

In June 2020, 31% of Americans reported anxiety or depression symptoms; 11% seriously considered suicide.

First reveal: stress appears to cause cortisol receptor resistance, which leads to immune disregulation.  In an experiment, subjects were deliberately exposed to the common cold; more of those subjects developed symptoms to the infection if they had reported major life stress over the past 12 months.   This showed up in the IL-6 and TNF-alpha inflammation markers too.  Stress = disregulated immune response = more infections & more symptoms.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3341031/

Seheult: “Those that are more concerned about COVID19 … may actually physically be under increased risk of having the complications of that very virus they are concerned about.”  He even labeled this as diabolical.

He went through a lot more evidence along these lines in his presentation.

So what’s the fix?  Some new set of pills?

For those in TL;DR mode and who already buy into the thesis that stress crushes your immune system, jump to 21:50 in the talk.  Or jump to this link: Table 2, below:

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2095254618301005?via%3Dihub#tbl0002

Executive summary: “walking”.  Vs sedentary groups, it literally chops your chance of getting sick in half.  Or more.  30 minutes a day.

This one table got me out of my room and off to the gym.  Walking to the gym, mind you.  🙂  I just imagined this “treatment” being as effective as the “vaccine” allegedly is – assuming you add (say) melatonin in there too.  With no side effects.  This “walking” treatment has been used in human beings for…well…a very long time.  And did I mention no side effects?  And its very affordable too.

So if walking is good, running has to be better, right?  Train really hard, and life will be perfect, right?

Well…it turns out that elite athletes have a greater susceptibility to illness, due to the damage they inflict on their bodies during training.  They have literally 2-6 times greater risk of URTI (respiratory illness) vs the people who just sit around and do nothing.

This is seen in the “J-curve”, below:

So don’t go nuts!  More isn’t better!

In fact, its horribly worse if you go nuts.

Who knew?  Well, I didn’t know.  Maybe you all did.  But next time I read a headline that says, “Marathon runner dies from COVID19” – I’ll know exactly how to interpret it.  “Well, duh, everyone knows that.”

It is also less-than-amusing to note that the lockdowns (and “stay-at-home” orders – in some places you could only leave home for “essential” reasons), plus the fear campaign spread by “Team Apocalypse” – could not have been better calculated to maximize the body count for this pandemic.  Seheult’s presentation, based on the latest scientific evidence, tells us this.

The apparent strategy: “prepare the terrain of your victims” by inducing an inflammatory response via projected stress & fear, reduce the chance for exercise amelioration (close the gyms!), reduce vitamin D production (“No Beach For You!”) – and lock people in place and then wait for the infection to hit, while hypnotizing them with stress and fear every single day, via CNN, etc.

How many deaths has Team Apocalypse been responsible for?  Will we ever know?

Independent of the useful idiots on Team Apocalypse, there is the Great Reset gang.  Was this really part of the plan?  Honestly yes, I think it was.  The virus was so weak, they had to pull out all the stops to maximize the impact.  [Incidentally this weakness is why I think it was an accidental leak from the lab, rather than – say – a deliberate release.]

But we don’t need to be afraid of the “Reset Gang”.  There are not many of them.  That’s why they (and their factotums) instinctively feel the need to hide behind razor wire.  They are desperate to divide us – by race, religion, etc.  This strive-to-divide is the “tell” – and our clue to victory.

We just need to unite, and this will end.  We need to resist the calls for division and unite with our brothers and sisters who are allegedly “on the other side” – whichever “other side” you are talking about – and this will all be over.

Meanwhile, I continue to collect “mechanisms of Agency” wherever I can find them.

Great article Dave.
I just don’t have time to be depressed, I’m too busy tending my gardens, building my chicken house, and doing projects for others. And regarding exercise, I look at people jogging and going to the gym and just wish they someday had a lifestyle that would allow real work to substitute for fitness training. I can’t think of a better fitness routine than building a homestead. I’m glad they are keeping fit,  but hope they see it as a transition phase to real living in the country.

    homesteads

Heh.  Well some of us aren’t building a homestead – our projects are just as interesting to us, but we don’t get that physical component for free the way you do.

I think someone once said: “it takes a village.”  Or something.

Someone’s gotta keep the Internet running, right?

Dave….like I said….I admire folks trying to keep fit, but am looking at the larger picture. Our rural area has fiber with screaming speeds. I think the “infrastructure” if improved will allow country living with access to the internet without the unhealthy constraints of city life. I wonder how many PP folks are “country connected”?

Yo OOG!

How many people from Houston, Dallas and Austin would have to move to your county to set up homesteads to ruin your vibe? We don’t have enough arable land to accommodate even a large minority of urban/suburban dwellers moving to the country. I see it here in NH. People from Massachusetts and other places get sick of the taxes and politics where they live so they move to NH to get away from it all. But when they get here, they keep voting like they always have and are trying to make NH another Massachusetts!

I’d advise you not to disturb urban dwellers working out on their exercise wheels with talk of “the good life” where you are.  🤫🤫🤫

    my universe

OOG-

Dave….like I said….I admire folks trying to keep fit, but am looking at the larger picture…

My experience is, very few people in the world understand my universe.  My peer group – lets just say we don’t get “exercise” as a side benefit of the stuff we love to do.

People enjoy different things.  The stuff I enjoy happens to be at a keyboard.  That’s just how it is.  So, I need to work harder at fitness than someone whose stuff they love to do involves exercise.

If I lived in the country – I’d still be at the keyboard.  Except I’d be in the country.  I’m not sure it would change things very much.  🙂

    Thc and Dave….fair points

I grew up in suburban NYC..and appreciate the differences having lived both the city and the country lifestyles. After the adjustment to country life, which is not easy, I can honestly say that no amount of money or any other enticement could get me to live in the city again. I wonder if people who have not lived in the country can really comprehend what it is like and the amazing health benefits associated with daily routine living? I do think the city living model is broken as evidenced by the migration to the boonies. This is not meant to offend a city dweller, but to say that it might be worth exploring an alternative lifestyle. Sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know.

Oliveoilguy, I, too, hope to never live in a city, again.  My travels, over the years, have landed me in San Francisco, Fresno and Seattle among other smaller places.  Big cities can be exciting when you’re young.  And everything is handy, you don’t have to plan ahead much.  You can hang out, half the day, at the coffee shop and see friends.  In the country, I have to plan ahead, keep essentials stocked up, know the chores I need to do when I go to town and be fairly handy for minor maintenance/repair problems.

I love hearing the birds, the fresh air, having neighbors 1/4 mile away  and the QUIET.  Two weeks after I moved here, I was startled, one day, hearing an unfamiliar sound.  I finally realized I was hearing all my clocks ticking.

However, I still ride a stationary bike an hour a day.  It’s just that it’s in my living room, now.

Dont forget that in the early days of the infection the message was “human to human transmission is impossible” “Go out and party in China town” “Kiss a Chinaman” “Trump’s travel ban is racist!” etc, etc. Almost seemed like they did everything they could to spread it around. Then when covid became a presence “stay home” “No gym” “Sunshine and fresh air? Thats just crazy old Trump being irresponsible!”.
