Corona alert! The Martians are coming!
Our current corona hysteria reminds me of an event that occurred in the not-so-distant past. The novel The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells (first serialized in 1897) described a Martian invasion of the earth. The police, the army and the air force were powerless before their powerful destructive ray guns.
War of the Worlds was re-created for radio by Orson Welles and it was broadcast on Sunday, October 30, 1938 (on Halloween, and that was on purpose!). It seemed real, with fake news bulletins and “remote” reports from Grover’s Mill, New Jersey where the first Martian ship landed. This is from the actual “newscast”:
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the most terrifying thing I have ever witnessed…. Wait a minute! Someone’s crawling. Someone or … something. I can see peering out of that black hole two luminous disks … are they eyes?… There’s a jet of flame springing from the mirror, and it leaps right at the advancing men. It strikes them head on! Good Lord, they’re turning into flame!
So much for harmless little green men! Even though the broadcast was introduced as an adaptation of the H.G. Wells novel and interrupted with radio announcements throughout the broadcast, millions believed the earth was being invaded. Churches were filled with terrified congregants, people piled into their cars to head for the hills, makeshift gas masks were made, people were terrified.
Few contemporary accounts exist outside newspaper coverage of the mass panic and hysteria supposedly induced by the broadcast … the panic was predominantly a creation of the newspaper industry. (1)
A modern war of the worlds
Similarly, the present corona (coronavirus) hysteria is a modern-day “war of the worlds.” It is a creation of the media. Hysteria is sweeping the globe.
Who dies from corona?
Who dies of the corona virus? The average age of death of people with corona virus is 80!!! Eighty!!! If you are under the age of 80 don’t worry. Actually, if you are over the age of 80 don’t worry either.
What if you are 80? Hide under the bed and don’t worry. Why? To understand this “pandemic” please read this: https://korenwellness.com/blog/the-coronavirus-is-coming/
At least some MDs are not driving everyone crazy.
Media ‘Hurting People,’ ‘Need To Be Held Accountable’ For Causing Panic by Dr. Drew:
A bad flu season is 80,000 dead, we’ve got about 18,000 dead from influenza this year, we have a hundred from corona…. Which should you be worried about, influenza or corona? A hundred versus 18,000? It’s not a trick question. And look, everything that’s going on with New York cleaning the subways and everyone using Clorox wipes… (2)
Actually, Dr. Drew was incorrect. So far 56 people have died and 26 were from one nursing home in Washington State. (3) Did they all get their flu shots before their deaths?
Many elderly people who are sickly have a poor immune system. Why? Many have underlying conditions. Many are on medications that are largely immune-suppressive! Did they receive a flu shot or another vaccine?
These are the questions the media should be asking. Hell, these are the questions the medical profession should be asking before they make everyone crazy over a “nothing-burger.”
Let’s not forget basic bacteriology
Microorganisms can only grow in fertile soil. The weaker the soil, the more the microorganisms will grow. The symptoms of a cold or flu are the CURE—detoxification. If a person is fairly well-nourished and not terribly toxic, they won’t get the flu or a cold.
However, if they get sick and have symptoms, encourage the detox! Also, give them proper nourishment (broth is especially good), hydrate them and provide rest. Enemas are wonderful for hydration and cleansing. Some people recommend high doses of vitamin C (it promotes detox as well as other good things). Essential oils, KST, chiropractic, bodywork, acupuncture, healing herbs and more are all wonderful ways to support the body as it detoxes and heals!!
Concerned about corona? What you don’t do
What you don’t want to do is suppress symptoms with drugs, vaccines and other toxins. Suppression of symptoms drives disease deeper. That can make you sicker and could cause death. That was why the 1918/1919 swine or Spanish flu was so deadly. The death rate was over 30% of flu sufferers under medical care but the death rate of those under chiropractic, classical osteopathy and homeopathic care was .25%. That’s right, under 1%. Why? They did not use suppressive medications and worked to enhance body function.
By permitting the body to use its symptoms to do its job rather than suppress them, there are long-term benefits. These include protection from cancer, tumor and heart disease.
- Those with carcinomas of the stomach, colon, rectum, breast, and ovary were interviewed…. A history of common colds or influenza was found to be associated with a decreased cancer risk. (4)
- Subjects who reported a history of infectious diseases (e.g., colds, flu) showed a 30% reduction in risk [of brain tumor]. (5)
Asking some simple questions (that few are asking)
How many people who have died of the flu (or corona, or a cold or pneumonia, etc.) recently had a flu shot? I’ve had patients who got terribly ill after getting a flu shot (despite my entreaties to avoid the flu shot).
I’m not kidding! A recent study appeared in the prestigious, peer-reviewed medical journal, Vaccine, entitled “Influenza vaccination and respiratory virus interference among Department of Defense personnel during the 2017-2018 influenza season.” The study reveals that influenza vaccination may increase the risk of infection from other respiratory viruses by 36%!!! (6)
How many people who died from the “flu” had other vaccines or were on medications, prescription and non-prescription that weakened their immune systems?
The SAD—standard American diet—how many ate that?
How many had co-existing conditions (and were on lots of meds on top of that)?
It’s no surprise that the majority of corona virus deaths are in the elderly in nursing homes. They did everything wrong: they got a flu shot, were on lots of meds and ate poorly—a perfect storm.
Current war of the worlds
Yes, there is a war of the worlds. The medical world that thinks you are a passive victim before every germ out there. And the natural health world (hygienic school) sees symptoms as the way the body heals, therefore, there is a reason for everything.
This is the real war—it’s a war of philosophy and world outlook.
What to do to stay healthy?
Eat healthy—go to www.westonaprice.org for great nutrition information. Sally Fallon Morrell is the executive director of the Weston A. Price Foundation. She will be speaking at our upcoming KST conference in Philadelphia May 1-3. For information go to www.korenspecifictechnique.com. She has just written this blog post on protection from corona or any virus. https://nourishingtraditions.com/how-to-protect-yourself-from-coronavirus-or-any-virus/
A powerful traditional diet is the ketogenic diet. It builds the immune system.
Do a sauna. Sweating is an important part of detoxification.
Go for walks, get sunshine, exercise.
Final words about corona
It’s safe to go to Italy, Israel, China and even Grover’s Mill, New Jersey—if we were permitted to fly there.

This reference has been passed around by Chiropractic speakers for years. I asked once where this specific claim came from and what was the verification. All I got was “I heard it from so and so.”
I have looked and searched for verification of this claim. I could find none.
I think it hurts our profession to make significant claims that are ancient, anecdotal, unverifiable, and probably not even close to being true.
You write “I think it hurts our profession to make significant claims that are ancient, anecdotal, unverifiable, and probably not even close to being true.” Ancient? 1918 is not exactly ancient. Unverifiable? Just do a search and you’ll find all this. However, if you’d bother to click on the link of the article I provided you’ll find a few of the references there. “Not even close to being true”? How can you say that if you haven’t even done your research? Your writing and thinking are muddled and sloppy. Please click on the link provided.
Hi, Dr. Carbary.
I first heard this study from Dr. Dan Murphy: https://www.danmurphydc.com/Rhodes_Flu.pdf
Hope that helps!
I am familiar with Dr. Rhodes’ info and it’s great. The problem is that it’s not referenced. My blog article on the 1918 flu pandemic is heavily referenced from medical, osteopathic, homeopathic and chiropractic sources.
I am impressed with your article. You are a wise man.
Excellent blog! The CDC announced 2 weeks ago that over 20,000 people died from the flu so far this flu season! I didn’t even see that in the news! The worldwide totals for COVID-19 don’t even approach that number! How can the World Health Organization call any outbreak the highest level pandemic when much less than 0.1% of the world’s population is infected? The media coverage, stockpiling of basic provisions and the panic is disproportionate to the threat! Use prudent precautions and get adjusted! Many studies show that chiropractic care increases immunity!
Great article–thank you!
Sage advice, I have started a new batch of bone broth. 🙂
Thank you Tedd!- I guess saving the profession back in the 90s was good training for you to save humanity now- MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
The bell curve of the age range of infected/hospitalized corona victims is changing. This is from an article by BuzzFeed…”But as the pandemic ratchets up, with 417,000 cases and counting worldwide as of Tuesday, it’s increasingly clear that the coronavirus is severely harming substantial numbers of people under 50.” Having family members in the health fields in the trench lines of New York City and New Jersey, the age for symptomatic patients has been proven to be much lower than your article claims. I do not believe in the Martian theory, however, providing information that has a high degree of variability as the virus spreads is not in the best interest of others — in my opinion.
