Great Promise on the Horizon: The COVID Vaccine!


Promising News! There are 2 vaccines that are touted to be 90% effective, and 94% effective, from Pfizer and Moderna, respectively. They are both non-live vaccines, using messenger RNA to instruct the body to manufacture the spike protein of the SARS-COV2 virus (the virus that causes COVID-19). They don’t expect there to be any significant issues. This is so exciting! This is just one step in the fight of this COVID-19 pandemic.


Although I am excited about these new developments, I would like to know more information about the safety of these vaccines. They talk about the effectiveness of the vaccines, which is obviously important, but it’s just as important to talk about safety. For example, the vaccine may prevent me from getting COVID, but it may have major side effects.


As a former clinical researcher, I know the importance of conducting safety and efficacy drug trials. Gathering this data takes years to collect, analyze, and surveil! This process can take anywhere between 10-20 years! 


The top questions I have are: 

  1. What are the side effects? We must remember that any vaccine can cause side effects. Are the side effects minor like a sore arm? Or are there major side effects like seizures, kidney damage, damage to my heart… is this vaccine worth the potential long-term damage that it may cause?
  2. How long will it be effective? Do I need to take this vaccine every year? Every 10 years? Lifetime coverage?
  3. Are there any vaccine-drug interactions? For example, interaction between a vaccine and a drug has been reported with the flu vaccine and coumadin (which is a blood thinner). 
  4. Though most issues arise in live virus vaccines (these 2 new COVID vaccines are non-live), I need to know if these vaccines safe for pregnant women? Immunocompromised patients? Children?
  5. Because of the mRNA technology where the body makes the spike protein for COVID-19, I have a few questions. The idea is that the presence of this protein inside the cell would trigger inflammation and cause an immune response, attacking the protein and enabling the immune system to create memory cells for that protein. So, if the body comes into contact with this protein again, it would be able to quickly fight it. The problem is that the creation of these spike proteins could be a trigger for autoimmune conditions to start or flare. So my main question is, will it cause an autoimmune reaction?

These are some of the key questions that I have about the vaccines, and you should have these questions too. Again, I am so excited that we have these vaccines on the horizon! I just need more information.

The Healing Trilogy


Ayurveda is one of the oldest forms of natural and alternative medicine. It started in India and has been around about 3,000 years. Ayurveda is about balancing the body, mind, and soul for optimum health.


The Healing Trilogy contains science-backed ingredients that can help reduce internal inflammation.


The Healing Trilogy is a trio of products that address inflammation of the brain (MIND), the heart (BODY), and the liver & gut (SOUL).


With rising illnesses linked to chronic inflammation in the U.S., it is important to address the underlying problem. In addition, diseases like heart disease, cancer, and many others can be linked to chronic inflammation. 


Mind, Body & Soul Ayurvedic Superfoods are manufactured in the USA, and infused with Turmeric, Coconut, and ancient Ayurvedic superfoods to help your body reduce inflammation, improve circulation, increase energy, and improve memory.

As we age, more and more of us are seeing our bodies outlasting our brain. The increase in devastating mind-related disorders is heartbreaking for so many.


Scientists have long known that inflammation contributes to these conditions, but lately, they have been turning up evidence that inflammation can affect the brain more directly and acutely, and might underlie a wider range of brain problems.

Although it is not yet proven how inflammation directly causes cardiovascular diseases, the medical community agrees that chronic, low-grade inflammation is closely linked to all stages of atherosclerosis, a disease that underlies heart attack, stroke, and peripheral artery disease.


Just one serving of BODY provides powerful nourishment for your cardiovascular system and helps reduce chronic inflammation with our proprietary high nitrate beetroot (10,000 ppm) juice combined with hawthorn berry for maximum nitric oxide delivery.

Although inflammation has long been known to play a role in allergic diseases like asthma, arthritis, and Crohn’s Disease, Dr. Tanya Edwards, Director of the Center for Integrative Medicine, says that Alzheimer’s Disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, and Parkinson’s Disease may all be related to chronic inflammation in the body. Dr. Edwards writes that inflammation is now recognized as “the underlying basis of a significant number of diseases”.


SOUL is packed with chlorophyll-rich alkalizing green superfoods and ancient Ayurvedic herbs known to support the liver and kidneys.

Each scoop of NOURISH has an ORAC value equal to the antioxidant power of over 7 servings of fruits and vegetables, making it quite possibly the best multivitamin on the planet! 


The ingredients are gently blended, never heated, and are always free of artificial colors, artificial flavors, fillers, sweeteners, additives, and synthetic, isolated, or fractionated vitamins & minerals. NOURISH contains an impressive array of dense nutrients, all from whole foods, created in nature as they should be. 


With its delicious chocolate flavor, NOURISH Superfoods & Sprouts is perfect for people of all ages!

Black Seed (Nigella Sativa) is a traditional herb that has been used for centuries to promote health and general well-being.


Also known as Black Cumin, Black Caraway, or the “Blessed Seed”, Black Seed has a rich and diverse chemical composition containing the phytochemicals thymoquinone and crystalline nigellone, antioxidants, amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, and minerals like calcium, iron, and potassium. Since 1959, over 500 peer-reviewed studies at international universities and untold journal articles have been published on this multi-faceted herb, and many of Black Seed’s components are still being discovered and researched.


Millions of people in Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Africa have used Black Seed for thousands of years to support the body with a variety of concerns like respiratory health, stomach and intestinal complaints, circulatory and immune system support, and skin conditions. Black Seed may support metabolism and improve digestion, and published studies have shown that it may have a healthy effect on blood sugar levels.

A deficiency in Zinc may lead to a wide variety of illnesses. Zinc creates a defense against infection-causing bacteria and viruses trying to enter the body and stops bacterial and viral replication.


Zinc aids in the proper assimilation of vitamins, normal growth and development, maintenance of body tissues with a focus on the strength of the immune system as well as the synthesis of DNA, and helps reduce healing time. It is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and is found in all the body fluids, including the moisture in the eyes, lungs, nose, urine, and saliva.


Zinc is also an anti-oxidant and must be in proper balance to assist some 25 enzymes in various functions involving digestion, metabolism, and reproduction.

Magnesium deficiency has far-reaching impacts on health and well-being. Studies show that a lack of magnesium can lead to a variety of conditions and symptoms, from simple irritability to chronic pain to life-threatening disease.


Magnesium is required for cardiovascular health, and to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. It’s vital for bone health, helps prevent cramps and muscle soreness, is needed for energy production, aids in nerve function, helps combat stress, and much more.

Adult Wellness is the essential oil of choice for adults and children over the age of 10 for daily preventative care.

This blend was specifically formulated with essential oils known for their antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-stimulant properties. At the same time, it’s gentle, non-toxic, and appropriate for long-term daily use.
