The Coronavirus is Coming!

Coronavirus: Oh no! Head for the hills! 

Is it coronavirus or deja vu? I’ll never forget the scene. A few years ago, I was in a hotel teaching a KST seminar and during a break I went into the lobby. I was attracted to the large screen TV with the latest breaking story. On the news was a near-hysterical reporter telling us about the horrible, terrible, no good, scary, killer flu that just appeared in Mexico. This time it could be the “big one,” the swine flu that killed millions. Again.

People all over the world were freaking out. There was a report of baggage handlers in Italy refusing to touch luggage that was in a plane that had come in from Mexico City. Media-fueled hysteria.

One of the students at the seminar who was watching the “news” with me asked, “What do you think about this?”

I answered him honestly. “I don’t know, these reporters sound hysterical. Let’s wait ‘til the dust settles. How do we know that this flu is different from last year’s flu?”

I went back to teaching and told everyone to settle down. One person asked me if beer was a good antidote for the flu. I told him I thought brandy was better and we could do research on this later that evening. Then we got back to the seminar.


Guess what was discovered? A month or so later, when things settled down and the reporters started reporting news instead of hysteria, it was revealed that that year’s terrible “killer flu” turned out to be even milder than the regular flu.

I wonder, “Did the airline passengers eventually get their luggage?”

Hysteria is more contagious than the flu

But that didn’t stop millions of people from being distracted with fear. Millions got vaccinated! Even though the vaccine wasn’t tested for safety or effectiveness. “Testing? Lives are at stake for G-d sake. You want us to die? Gimme that shot.”

Remember a few years ago when hundreds of elderly people waited on line for “protection” from some flu shot they were scared into getting? “It’s coming, the big one is coming!” The only people who died were those who had accidents and falls while waiting on line for the worthless, dangerous flu shot that has been linked to Alzheimer’s Disease. (1)

Let’s discuss the flu

Let’s talk about the flu. You have a fever, you’re weak and achy, tired and have other flu-like symptoms. Could it be coronavirus (2019-nCoV)! Or maybe it’s…

  • Swine flu
  • SARS
  • MERS
  • West Nile Virus
  • Zika
  • Ebola
  • Bird Flu
  • H1N1

Weren’t we told all of the above were going to spread all over the world and kill millions? Didn’t the experts tell us that?

Poodle flu?

Who knows what else will be coming—Parakeet flu? Chicken flu? Frog flu? Blog flu? Cat flu? Goat flu? Duck flu? Poodle flu? Or perhaps it’s an ILI—influenza-like illness that you have. Most cases people consider to be the “flu” are really ILIs. In one study, over 80% of people who thought they had the flu had an ILI. (2)

There is no end to what we can blame an epidemic on since there are thousands, hundreds of thousands and even millions of viri and bacteria and other micro-organisms. They all have one thing in common the medical profession, health department, “experts” and media love to blame epidemics on them.

Detoxification and restoring homeostasis

What is the flu? A detoxing! All the symptoms—fever, sweating, fatigue—are good for you. You are restoring homeostasis as your body flushes out toxins. It’s a wonderful thing, even if you feel like crap. Please rest and take it easy, hydrate [my grandmother used an enema bulb—I dare you (it did work)] and stay comfortable while you heal.

symptoms of coronavirus?It’s been known for centuries that having fevers and so-called infectious diseases of childhood result in a healthier person with less cancer, less heart disease and less chronic illness in adulthood. It’s long been known that as a result of the detox children have physical and mental growth spurts after these diseases. That is why in India measles is referred to as “visitation from a goddess.” In China, measles symptoms are understood to be how the child detoxes from the poisons it absorbed in the womb. After all, mothers detox into their unborn babies. (3)

It must be repeated that symptoms are how your body restores homeostasis or balance. Symptoms are part of a healing process. As Hippocrates said, “We call them diseases but symptoms are the cure of diseases.”

The end is coming, prepare to meet thy doom!

Remember those cartoons of a guy in a white robe walking around holding a sign, telling us to repent or we’re going to meet our maker?

Since medicine has replaced religion for many people, “The End is Coming” is no longer from a religious group but from medical organizations telling us that the BIG ONE is coming.

vaccine for coronavirus?Repent or you’re going to die. How do we repent? We get sprinkled, rather injected, with holy water. Vaccines are the modern holy water given by today’s doctor-priests.

“Inject me and my wife and our kids with your holy waters! We’ll be protected! We’ll be among the saved! After all, what could be the downside of holy water?”

If you think this is a replay you are correct: coronavirus is just a replay of Ebola, SARS, bird flu, swine flu, MERS and H1N1. It’s the latest hysteria; it’s all blah, blah, blah. Fake news.

But vaccine stocks are soaring in response. That’s what we need, a vaccine against coronavirus. Who has time for safety tests? (4)

Are you worried about the coronavirus?

Are you worried about the coronavirus and the monstrous pandemic that it will unleash to kill millions? You needn’t be. There are really no such things as “killer bugs” or “killer viri.” Infections only arise in fertile soil. Claude Bernard, the father of physiology and one of the world’s great scientists, famously said our “milieu interieur”—our internal environment—was the key to health. This flew in the face of Pasteur and Koch’s germ theory of disease, that considered the germ to be primary as a cause of disease, irrespective of the individual’s health. Intense discord among scientists arose over this issue.

Yet on his deathbed, Louis Pasteur, in 1895, said to his friend Professor Renon: “Bernard was right, the germ is nothing, the milieu is everything.” (5)

But there are plenty of others

There are plenty of others to this day that feel that Bernard was wrong, that the germ is everything and individual resistance is nothing. We have experts who use computer simulations (i.e. made up stories) that are truly frightening. One simulation has predicted 65 million deaths from the coronavirus. Even though every prediction ever made based on that premise has never come to pass it makes no difference, people are easily scared. Ignore the facts, head for the hills! (6)

Coronavirus: how bad is it?

hysteria over coronavirusAccording to the CDC:

While CDC considers this a serious public health concern, based on current information, the immediate health risk from 2019-nCoV to the general American public is considered low at this time. (7)

Don’t panic yet!! We’ll tell you when to panic. But stay in pre-panic mode, it’ll keep you scared. Politicians and medical professionals like that.

Coronavirus: why China?

Let’s put this China coronavirus “pandemic” in perspective: there have been a small number of deaths blamed on the coronavirus in a city of 11 million. Is that more or less than died during the same period last year? The year before? We don’t know since nobody is asking the right questions. Reporters that go after politicians with ferocious intensity become typists when someone in a white coat with letters after their name speaks.

Why China? Much of China is filthy. I’ll never forget, a couple of years ago my brother and sister-in-law took a 3-week tour of China. They came back having lost weight. Why? They said the food was terrible, the air was barely breathable, the water was polluted, the bathrooms were disgusting and they couldn’t wait to leave. Many people in their group got sick.

coronavirus?coronavirus?Stop blaming it on bugs—they are scavengers that feed on toxic tissue. It’s not some “virus” of which there are thousands if not millions, it’s the toxins.

The foul air of dozens of fast-expanding cities across China contains cocktails of toxic contaminants unprecedented in the range of pollutants they contain at high concentrations … effects that doctors say are cutting five years off the expected lifespan of half a billion people in northern China.

China has the world’s most dangerous outdoor air pollution. The country emits about a third of all the human-made sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and particulates that are poured into the air around the world. The Global Burden of Disease Study, an international collaboration, estimates that 1.1 million Chinese die from the effects of this air pollution each year, roughly a third of the global death toll. (8)

Toxic foods

Let us not forget the poor quality of the food and the malnutrition from food grown in minerally-depleted soil. Add to that genetically modified seeds as well as synthetic chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides and you have a toxic population close to the tipping point. Excellent nutrition information can be obtained from the Weston A. Price Foundation.

The same old dance

This coronavirus hysteria is the same old dance we see year after year: government officials trying to scare us into spending money on useless vaccines or drugs. Blaming things on a “virus” distracts from the real source of disease—toxicity, pollution, poor waste disposal, poor water, factory farming and (especially in communist countries) lack of respect for private property. People can pollute with impunity since, if “the people” own the land, then nobody owns the land. Who can sue for violation of property rights if there’s no private property? Without private property, pollution spews unchecked.

A history of pandemics

In the history of human life on this planet there has never been an infection, let alone a plague, that threatened to wipe out humanity; not even the bubonic plague or “black death” that killed so many in Europe in the Middle Ages. As with other plagues, it was caused by filth, rats, unsanitary lives.

By staying away from polluted water and polluted air, by observing basic hygiene and sanitation practices, a reasonably healthy, reasonably well-nourished person has nothing to worry about.

One of the most powerful immune-suppressive things to do is to take medications. Steroids, aspirin, acetaminophen and many other meds weaken one’s immune system, make you toxic and get you sick. The medical profession is one of the main causes of death and disease in today’s world.

How to stay healthy

Your immune system works to keep your body in balance or homeostasis; it is more powerful than any drug or vaccine—and much safer. You are not a passive victim. You don’t need drugs to live a healthy life. And you most certainly don’t need vaccines—that’ll make you sicker!

World Hysteria Organization view of coronavirus

The WHO—“World Hysteria Organization”—likened the coronavirus to the new “Spanish Flu” that caused millions of deaths. Every time officials wish to terrify the public they tell us that the 1918-1919 Spanish killer flu is coming.

What was the Spanish Flu all about?

The 1918-1919 “Killer Flu” or “Spanish flu” that supposedly killed millions world-wide was no unusual, terrible, powerful flu. It was a regular flu. What made it so deadly was the new medical treatment with their new wonder drug—aspirin. Aspirin’s use, and especially its dangers, was not understood.

Those days MDs prescribed aspirin by (literally) the hands-full. Pumped full of aspirin, people were not able to generate a healthy fever and instead became a perfect breeding ground for bacterial infection. It was not the flu virus that caused death but bacterial pneumonia.

Under medical care, the death rate was as high as 40%. But under homeopathic, chiropractic and osteopathic care the death rate was about 0.25%. Those healers did not use aspirin to suppress symptoms and they respected the body’s need to generate a fever.

Coronavirus is no big deal

A few days before the WHO announcement the world-class Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reported that the threat of the coronavirus is small, noting that its mortality is very, very low with a death rate less than 0.5%. Far less than SARS. (9)

Remember SARS? The severe acute respiratory syndrome outbreak in 2002-2003, which originated in China and world-wide was blamed for 700 deaths? 700 deaths out of over a billion people is not a pandemic. In fact, we still don’t know if it that mortality number was any different from a regular flu-like condition. To this day there are conflicting reports about the number of people infected because it was so mild and most people were never tested for it. (10)

But the WHO likes to scare people just as it has done in prior flu scares. The WHO continues to discuss coronavirus as a horrible, deadly pandemic spreading all over the world. A few days ago some Americans who had visited China came home with a fever! Oh my!

Politicians love hysteria

As politicians like to say, “Don’t let a good crisis go to waste.” People turn to our “leaders” during a crisis and this is an opportunity for them to accumulate more power. The freedom of the people will diminish as the power of the elected and unelected bureaucrats will grow.

Natural, safe, effective and inexpensive

Natural ways to deal with colds and flu are healthcare systems or arts that promote proper function and do not suppress symptoms. Included in that list are chiropractic (and of course KST), classical osteopathy, acupuncture (to clear blockages and open up healing channels), homeopathy (to turn on your body’s natural healing), herbology, naturopathy, Ayurvedic (Indian) medicine and many other systems including Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Speaking of China, Steve Schram, DC, LAc, an expert in TCM, mentioned to this author the formula Gan Mao Ling, Zhong Gan Ling, and Yin Qiao San as the “best” Chinese formula for colds and flu. That formula “clears heat toxins, dispels wind-heat, benefits sinus and throat.” (11)

Of course, the above healing approaches are far from an exhaustive list. We live in a world that has a wealth of natural, safe, effective methods to permit the body to function at its height and promote detoxification, rest and rejuvenation.

Coronavirus is coming! Head for the hills

Please head for the hills—because that’s where there are a lot of nice spas, resorts and hot springs. We have so many choices in our great country: the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania, the Berkshires in Massachusetts, and, in West Virginia there is the Berkeley Springs (enjoyed by George Washington and other founding fathers). The US is dotted with great hot springs and spas. I’d like everyone on the West Coast to remember this because California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska are closer to China than for example, Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Take it easy and head for the hills! Take a vacation from the news, avoid MDs with their suppressive medications as much as possible and respect your body’s natural healing abilities—you and your family will be healthier for it.

    I know the immune system is our first line of defense, my brother knew that too, until he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder type arthritis, he has both types Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis. The doctors tell him his immune system is attacking his tissues, and his bones. He has been on immunosuppressive drugs for almost a year now. He says it is working to reduce the pain but he also believes there is no cure. He is tired of trying to find a natural cure, and hold all things that aren’t scientist backed as suspect. Refuses to try more.
    He is eating raw kale every day, and did cut out things his doctor said he was allergic to, including cinnamon, which was helping until he was told he was allergic. He doesn’t trust his body to heal itself. My meddling was making him mad at me. So since I don’t know what to do I just kept out of it now.

    You hit the nail squarely on the head – again. It’s amazing how we (educated) humans take the words of that medical/pharmaceutical industrial complex and swallow it hook, line and sinker. Tedd, of all the wonderful people in this profession you, literally and figuratively, stand up to them at every opportunity and don’t back down. Bravo my friend.

    • Tedd Koren, D.C. Tedd Koren, D.C. on March 13, 2020 at 6:25 am

      My hope is that after this hysteria (and silliness) blows over people will realize how they’ve been taken. What is really sad are all the people who are working in restaurants, hotels, tourism etc. will be so badly hurt – for no reason, for a mild flu or cold.

    I’m impressed that you wrote this in January! In my world there was no mention of corona at all! The essential oil blend “thieves’ formulated from the days of the bubonic plague, is immune protective – and the blend raven with ravensara is anti viral to the max for respiratory. Noh studies easy to google

    • Avatar Jill Keiran on March 16, 2020 at 11:29 am

      In addition to the sound advice offered by Dr. Koren, I find that using the most pure and potent essential oils is critical for supporting body systems. Many consumers I speak with struggle to avoid contaminated or adulterated oils that are flooding the market. It is wonderful to see essential oils get the attention they deserve with much more research readily available. I found this blog post following two years of independent study very insightful.
