This week we are lucky enough to have a brilliant infection disease doctor on the podcast, Dr. Sary Beidas, to discuss the pathology and treatment options for Covid-19. So far I've really only shared information on the epidemiology and public health science aspects of the outbreak, but I haven't gone into detail on current and potential treatments (as it's not my area of expertise). I have been receiving a lot of questions about the current and potential Covid-19 treatments, so I thought it was best to have an expert inform us on these topics. Dr. Saudi Beidas, who is one of the leading infectious doctos in the U.S. was gracious enough to offer his time to provide us with the medical perspective on Covid-19. I'm very grateful for the insight he shared, as I learned a lot from this conversation and I think you will as well! Dr. Sary Beidas, MD is an infectious disease specialist in Orange Park, FL and has been practicing for 30 years. He graduated from Fac Med U Jordan, Amman in 1983 and specializes in infectious disease medicine. On this episode we discuss: Dr. Beidas' background and how he became involved with studying infectious diseases How Covid-19 presents itself, and how it spreads through the population Treatment methods that are currently being used and researched How Covid-19 differs from the flu Why losing your sense of taste and smell could be an early sign you have contracted Covid-19 How to measure the oxygen saturation in your lungs using a pulse oximeter Remdesivir, Zithromax, Hydroxychloroquine: their risks and potential in treating Covid-19 Why heart problems may put you at higher risk of developing more severe viral symptoms How safety issues can arise when scaling up drug or vaccine trials The correlation between smoking and a higher mortality rate from Covid-19 Why behavioral and lifestyle changes are critical to maintaining a healthy immune system The time that Covid-19 can survive on various surfaces Preventative measures you can take to keep yourself and others safe Some alternative treatments that MAY be effective for treating Covid-19 (do your own research) Why NSAID's could potentially make things worse when using as a treatment for Covid-19 Connect with Kayla: Instagram: @biocurious_kayla [Web] Sponsors: Formula nootropics: Listener discount code: biocurious Biostrap: Listener discount code: BIOCURIOUS20

Dr. Shallenberger has been practicing medicine for 45 years, and has been using ozone in his medical practice since 1983. He has authored several indexed papers on ozone therapy and has also written “The Principles and Application of Ozone Therapy – A Practical Guideline For Physicians” and "The Ozone Miracle", both of which are available on Amazon. Perhaps his most significant contribution to medicine is his patented discovery of assessing mitochondrial function using VO2 analysis. He believes the evidence is clear that the secret to a long, healthy, and functional life is measuring and optimizing mitochondrial function. This episode is bursting with information related to ozone therapy and it's benefits. Dr. Shallenberger shares an interesting story behind his transition from working in a standard, western medical practice, to one focused on health optimization.

Pay attention to the silence behind noice and go deeper and deeper into subtle, slow "ocean" like realms.  4. Bonus pay attention to light (flicker or beam) from your forehead.  If using mantras, the most effective I found the universal truths:  Inhale "I" Exhale "Essence". (repeat as needed feel response in your body.  Another one Inhale "I AM" Exhale "Pure Love", Inhale "I am" Exhale "Infinite", Inhale "I am" Exhale "Eternal".  System Reset:  Tap into the waters in your body.
