PREVENTING OR RECOVERY FROM COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, SARS, or the second generation of the SARS virus from 2003)

Being in the heart of a global pandemic, I've compiled here a list of health tips for what I believe to be effective solutions to help prevent the Coronavirus, as well as things to do if you are infected. These suggestions come from various sources I've been following over recent months, combined with general health practices and natural remedies based on decades of my own personal experience, research and studies of alternative medicine.

Seasons Greetings from Ancient Traditions

By Marsha Silvestri

While researching various foods for my 101 Anti-Aging Vegan book, I came across some fascinating info about mushrooms. These life forms are not actually plants, they’re a fungus. One surprising discovery is that their DNA is closer to humans than the plant kingdom. I also found several unexpected facts and lore, that connects mushrooms to many ancient practices to the traditions we celebrate for the holidays and Christmas today.

ENDANGERED FORESTS - ENDANGERED PLANET

© 2019 by Marsha Silvestri

DANGER - PLANET ON FIRE!  Today over 300 bushfires are raging across eastern Australia creating catastrophic conditions. Last week the “hot topic” in California were the wildfires as their frequency have become a new norm, dubbed the “fire season”, fueled by the Santa Ana winds, dry weather plus other factors. As devastating as these blazes are, some are “small fry” compared to massive infernos blazing worldwide that are ignored by mainstream media or forgotten after a quick “flash in the pan” minimal press.

Yes, you read that number right, most of which were deliberately set by arsonists!).
