In this post I link to recent studies regarding COVID-19. Before I do, let me remind you that, in general, research is far less respected now than in years gone by. Consider these quotes:
“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” Source
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.” Source
“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.” Arnold Relman, Harvard professor and former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.
Keep these things in mind, especially when the media reports on research. There’s (almost) always a spin.
New WHO diagnosis guidelines: to qualify as COVID-19-positive, you need 2 positive tests and symptoms. Adoption of this would immediately end the pandemic. What countries will adopt this recommendation?
Measures against COVID-19 are likely adversely affecting our innate immunity because of excessive sterility. The “hygiene hypothesis.” This is discussed in Education Module 1 as a reason for the dramatic increase in allergies and sensitivities.

Lower vitamin K status, higher COVID-19 mortality. (Article is a preprint, meaning it’s not yet been peer-reviewed.)
High blood sugar (even without a diabetes diagnosis) increases COVID-19 risk. Article reports on four recent studies.
Vitamin D therapy improves COVID-19 outcome. It’s been shown several times that low vitamin D levels are associated with higher COVID-19 mortality, but until now no one had looked at the potential of vitamin D therapy in the treatment of COVID-19.
Here’s a quick overview of vitamin D and COVID-19
SET-DB™ practitioners would be sure to clear any sensitivities to nutrients such as vitamins D and K before recommending patients or clients to consider adding such nutrients to their supplementation regime.
