Only time will tell

Let’s get some perspective…

COVID-19 cases in the U.S. 330,000 approximately. Some states are already seeing a peek, possibly.

That number of cases represents 0.001% of our population that actually has the virus. Which then of course means that 326,700,000 of us DO NOT HAVE the virus, or 99.998% of the population is virus free. Even if 3,000,000 people get sick, which is a loooong way away, that is still only 1% of the U.S. population

Which then of course means that 99% of all Americans will be COVID-19 free.

What am I missing? 99% of us will not get sick 🤔? Can that be accurate? The death toll, as a percent of the total population is incredibly small. Something like 0.0000757 % (based on 25,000 deaths. Today we have 8500 deaths) such a small number for the amount of panic created. I don’t know what I’m missing?

You are probably going to say, “Well it’s very contagious and kills more people than regular flu.” Ok yes, but we are devastating our economy for at least a year to come (just a guess), forcing mass unemployment. We are increasing individual credit debt, which will take months if not years for most people to pay off, if ever. There is a 25% increase in domestic abuse incidents, increases in alcoholism (just a guess), increasing depression and anxiety by breeding fear which actually makes you sick too (stress, high blood pressure, cell death etc).

I guess the question for me is; “Is creating all of these other long term issues, which could possibly kill many more than will die from covid, worth the cost of slowing this disease?” We will not defeat COVID-19. Nature has a way of surviving and this virus will be with us forever. Yes a vaccine will be developed, and we will all claim success with the lockdown in June as new cases decline. But we will not realize that it was the quarantine that continues killing us long after the virus has been “contained”. The long term health and mental effects could last many years. Is saving less than 1% of Americans worth hurting the other 99%?

That’s an individual ethical question we can only answer for ourselves. However, sometimes in a field of crops the diseased plants must be removed or the whole field will die. Sometimes the few get sacrificed for the good of the all. Today we are saving the few, at the expense of the many. Only time will tell if this was a good decision.

     In 2004, having fallen and fractured my spine, I began a slow death spiral as an addict to legal opioids. For the next eight years, I battled depression and stomach ulcers. At the end of every month, I would face withdrawal symptoms, as well as the fear of running out of medication.      At one point, I was prescribed 1080 total pills every month! More than half were opioids, while the rest were prescribed to fix the problems opium was causing.      In 2012, I was rushed to the emergency room with bleeding ulcers. This happened again in 2014. I had lost almost 40 pounds during this time period. I was killing myself.      One night at the end of the month in 2014, I was facing imminent withdrawal sickness. Let me tell you: withdrawal sucks! I was not eligible for a refill but I needed the drugs. I grabbed a gun and went to a nearby pharmacy. I sat outside that store for about an hour. Finally, I decided that the best thing I could do would be to break away from the addictive drugs. I went home, went through some withdrawal sickness, and started planning my strategy.      It took me another two years to successfully get free. Eleven years after beginning my journey with opioids, I was able to beat the addiction through the use of medical marijuana, changing to a mostly natural-food diet, focusing on positivity and gratefulness, and getting outside in nature. I have been pharmaceutical free since 2016      Over several years of extensive research, I learned that medical marijuana could help with eliminating opioid addiction while reducing withdrawal symptoms and providing natural pain relief. I discovered that there was proven science backing up marijuana as medicine. I researched cannabis and hemp: their uses, benefits, and side effects, and how cannabinoids help the human body create homeostasis naturally, without side effects, addiction, or overdose issues.       As a master grower, I was aware of plant nutrient needs, and I realized that they are very similar to human nutrient needs. I began researching fruits, vegetables, and herbs extensively. Learning that nature provides all the nutrients a body needs. Consuming a variety of organic foods everyday will keep your body in a perfect state to fight off disease. As my body healed I was able to focus on my mind as well. You must; get your body right, to get your mind right, to get your life right.       I have also studied many current and historical positive thought mentors. Learning that, "we are what we think we are", as well as negative thoughts attract negative things, and positive thoughts attract positive outcomes.       I combined all of this knowledge to devise my theory on; The Three Life Centers of the body. Keeping these three areas balanced will keep your life balanced.      Medical marijuana helped reduce my drug withdrawal symptoms, enabling me to eliminate opioids, and I credit it with saving my life..      Because of my success eating and medicating naturally, maintaining positivity and gratitude, while embracing nature, I decided that I wanted to help educate others, and assist them with their own health and life issues.      I've been an advocate for medical marijuana legalization since 2014. I have lobbied senators, traveled statewide to speak on behalf of the cannabis community, and appeared in local forums, to share my journey and bring people's awareness to the benefits of medical marijuana, natural dieting, and positivity.       With this website, my goal is to dispel some myths, while educating you on a plant that has numerous health benefits (cannabis). Simplify your diet to achieve balance and good health through nature. Help you to create an environment of positivity and gratitude, and encourage you to get outside experience nature. I will even share some hidden gardening tips.
