Wake up , world….. These apps aren’t about protecting us!!

Here come COVID-19 tracing apps — and privacy trade-offs

As governments around the world consider how to monitor new coronavirus outbreaks while reopening their societies, many are starting to bet on smartphone apps to help stanch the pandemic.
But their decisions on which technologies to use — and how far those allow authorities to peer into private lives — are highlighting some uncomfortable trade-offs between protecting privacy and public health.
“There are conflicting interests,” said Tina White, a Stanford University researcher who first introduced a privacy-protecting approach in February. “Governments and public health (agencies) want to be able to track people” to minimize the spread of COVID-19, but people are less likely to download a voluntary app if it is intrusive, she said.
Containing infectious disease outbreaks boils down to a simple mantra: test, trace and isolate. Today, that means identifying people who test positive for the novel coronavirus, tracking down others they might have infected, and preventing further spread by quarantining everyone who might be contagious.

That second step requires an army of health care workers to question coronavirus carriers about recent contacts so those people can be tested and potentially isolated.
Smartphone apps could speed up that process by collecting data about your movements and alerting you if you’ve spent time near a confirmed coronavirus carrier. The more detailed that data, the more it could help regional governments identify and contain emerging disease hot spots. But data collected by governments can also be abused by governments — or their private-sector partners.
Some countries and local governments are issuing voluntary government-designed apps that make information directly available to public health authorities.
In Australia, more than 3 million people have downloaded such an app touted by the prime minister, who compared it to the ease of applying sunscreen and said more app downloads would bring about a “more liberated economy and society.” Utah was the first U.S. state to embrace a similar approach, one developed by a social media startup previously focused on helping young people hang out with nearby friends.
Both these apps record a digital trail of the strangers an individual encountered. Utah’s goes even further, using a device’s location to help track which restaurants or stores a user has visited.

The app is “a tool to help jog the memory of the person who is positive so we can more readily identify where they’ve been, who they’ve been in contact with, if they choose to allow that,” said Angela Dunn, Utah’s state epidemiologist.

A competing approach under development by tech giants Apple and Google limits the information collected and anonymizes what it pulls in so that such personalized tracking isn’t possible.

Apple and Google have pushed for public health agencies to adopt their privacy-oriented model, offering an app-building interface they say will work smoothly on billions of phones when the software rolls out sometime in May. Germany and a growing number of European countries have aligned with that approach, while others, such as France and the U.K., have argued for more government access to app data.

Most coronavirus-tracking apps rely on Bluetooth, a decades-old, short-range wireless technology, to locate other phones nearby that are running the same app.

The Bluetooth apps keep a temporary record of the signals they encounter. If one person using the app is later confirmed to have COVID-19, public health authorities can use that stored data to identify and notify other people who may have been exposed.

Apple and Google say that apps built to their specifications will work across most iPhones and Android devices, eliminating compatibility problems. They have also forbidden governments to make their apps compulsory and are building in privacy protections to keep stored data out of government and corporate hands and ease concerns about surveillance.

For instance, these apps rely on encrypted “peer to peer” signals sent from phone to phone; these aren’t stored in government databases and are designed to conceal individual identities and connections. Public-health officials aren’t even in the loop; these apps would notify users directly of their possible exposure and urge them to get tested.

In the U.S., developers are pitching their apps directly to state and local governments. In Utah, the social media company Twenty sold state officials on an approach combining Bluetooth with satellite-based GPS signals. That would let trained health workers help connect the dots and discover previously hidden clusters of infection.

“It’s unlikely that automated alerts are going to be enough,” said Jared Allgood, Twenty’s chief strategy officer and a Utah resident, citing estimates that the peer-to-peer models would need most people participating to be effective.

North and South Dakota are pursuing a similar model after a local startup repurposed its existing Bison Tracker app, originally designed to connect fans of North Dakota State University’s athletic teams.
Regardless of the approach, none of these apps will be effective at breaking chains of viral infections unless countries such as the U.S. can ramp up coronavirus testing and hire more health workers to do manual outreach.
Another big limitation: many people, particularly in vulnerable populations, don’t carry smartphones.
In Singapore, for instance, a large migrant worker population lives in cramped dorms, makes about $15 a day, and powers the city’s previously booming construction industry — but smartphone usage in this group is low. When the Southeast Asian city-state launched its tracing app in March, total confirmed COVID-19 cases were well under 1,000. Then in early April, a rash of new infections in worker dormitories pushed that number to more than 18,000, triggering new lockdown policies.
“If we can find a way to automate some of the detective work with technology, I think that would be a significant help,” said Nadia Abuelezam, a disease researcher at Boston College. “It won’t be all we need.”

 

 

These apps are against our American freedom. We shouldn’t have to be labeled, tagged or persuaded into telling anyone anything.  it is our privacy rights. -A.L. Childers

YOU DONT HAVE FREEDOM, WHEN YOU HAVE TO ASK PERMISSION

Recently,  the American  authorities have decided for us, what is “essential and non-essential” for you during this pandemic.

As usual, they are just a wee bit off the mark, on what is important for human survival.
Here’s a top 10 of the most important things for humans to survive, and PROSPER (in no particular order) and how the government has done the complete opposite.
1. Income – As long as money is used for goods and services, human beings require an income source in order to fund things like food and shelter. With the government’s draconian quarantine enforcements in place, millions have lost their income and ability to properly fund the basics to human survival.
2. Food – It is estimated that a human being can go approximately 30 days with no food. Food is the predominant way to feed our bodies, stay nourished, and stay healthy. With lowered incomes and growing disruption of food supplies, this has been put in jeopardy by the government.
3. Shelter – Although it can be done, living without shelter is an extreme hardship. To protect oneself from the elements is not a luxury, but a basic necessity for humans to THRIVE, which is why it is essential. However, with lowered incomes, many people and families will find themselves in the streets or without proper shelter.
4. Outdoors/Nature – Being outdoors, enjoying the fresh air and the sun, is paramount for humans to survive. Without both, food would not grow, nutrient levels (such as Vitamin D) would be compromised, and life would cease to exist on this planet. Asking people to stay indoors, takes away those essential services from the environment, and causes more sickness and disease.
5. Clean water – It is estimated that a human being can go approximately 3 days with no water, and since our body is made up of approximately 75% water, it makes perfect sense. Unfortunately, our municipal water supplies have been tainted with fluoride, chlorine, VOC’s, prescription drugs, and more, and have taken away the gift of clean water, from many humans.
6. Oxygen – Arguably the most important element to human survival, a human being can typically only operate without oxygen for 4-6 minutes, at which point severe brain damage and death can occur. This perfectly illustrates how important oxygenation is for our bodies. So when the outdoors become restricted, and masks are required or heavily encouraged, you dramatically reduce the amount of oxygen available to you. In fact, you do the opposite when wearing a mask, by breathing in your own carbon dioxide.
7. Physical interaction – One of the biggest and most underrated necessities for human survival is physical interaction. Being able to touch, hug, or otherwise be close to your loved ones, is essential to your spiritual and physical needs. However, this has been deemed as non-essential by the government, who have restricted many interactions to being 6 feet apart.
8. Freedom – Another HUGE essential service for humans is freedom. The ability to earn income, travel, visit, and refuse forced medical procedures is at serious risk. This is non-negotiable – our freedom and sovereignty is the essence of being human.
9. Love – Due to media tactics, governmental obstruction, and other divisive actions, “love thy neighbor” has more and more become “question and block thy neighbor”, which has facilitated a general disdain towards those who don’t agree with you. As a result, love has taken a back seat to hate, which is one of the most deteriorating emotions to your health. LOVE is essential, to PROPSERING.
10. Peace – We have been at war for years, with other countries, cultures, and ourselves. Whether it is bombing another civilization, or our bodies with toxic medicines, procedures, and thoughts, we have little idea what peace looks like thanks to the actions of the government. However, it is essential to our survival and to PROSPER, but unfortunately, never ending wars have become an essential item on their list, and the people have suffered as a result.
This is a short list of how many essentials have been tampered with and ruined, at our expense. On the flip side, government has determined other things are more important and should remain at your disposal, like liquor stores, fast food, and big box stores.
Does this sound like the actions of a group of people who care about your well-being? Do you think their enforcements produce a healthier and happier population?
It’s time to wake up from our nap. It’s time to PROSPER.

 

 

What does HEALING look like? Healing comes from a deeper place from within yourself, and taking the necessary steps to come into alignment with the truth. Every step, breath and decision you take that brings you closer to your truth, it will simultaneously bring you one step closer to what your healing will look like. It doesn’t matter what treatment you undertake for hypothyroidism. This is your truth and your healing journey. To deny this is to miss the great opportunity and message that hypothyroidism brings. We all have different paths to walk and we must learn from our walk and grow from it or we will stay stuck on that hamster wheel and continue to fall down that rabbit hole of uncertainty. Asking the questions, finding the answers and ultimately learning how to step on that path to create change is where the true healing begins then you will soon see the beginning steps of your body becoming whole again.
Finally, a drop of truth in this Ocean of Propaganda we are given daily.

A Poor Functioning Thyroid is the Victim of Something Else Brewing in the Body

Most people think that their thyroid (or absence of) is the reason for their inability to lose weight or even keeping it off.
In fact, that’s what some specialists may say
This is completely backwards and absolutely wrong
It seems that when our thyroid goes astray, their go-to solution is to destroy it or prescribe medications.
Then, when we are left with the aftermath of weight gain, a poorly functioning body, and many ghost like symptom’s.

You may hear your specialists say:
“Keep taking the medications , we can adjust them as we monitor your blood work and we will figure it out as we go on.”
The major problem is that medications or removing the thyroid doesn’t figure out what the root reason of having hypothyroidism is in the 1st place.

What has changed? You are lucky if you do improve but most end up back in the same cycle of weight gain, achy joints and muscles along with your energy plummeting.

And here we are struggling with this weight for the rest of our lives.
The standard advise to help shed those pounds actually makes weight gain worse.
Bootcamps, fad diets, shakes, and pills tend to dig  people into a deeper hole.

Your  poor functioning thyroid is something completely else brewing inside your body.
And that is the relentless build up of inflammation, stress, and toxins that aren’t being addressed.

When you look in the mirror, do you see a stranger?

I know, I have for many years. Who was this person that clearly isn’t me starring back at me in this mirror.
I felt trapped inside this layer of skin that was inflamed, stressed, full of toxins and overweight.
If this is my current life then looking at my future self really scared me.
If I was experiencing so much unhappiness now when I looked in the mirror or having this much pain now, what will it be like later?

We must break the cycle and stop repeating it over and over.
We must focus on the root cause by eliminating the inflammation, de-stressing the body and supporting it in letting go of the toxins to allow our body to stay literally pist off  and unable to heal itself naturally.

What the F#@%, Hypothyroidism?

Why your thyroid is conspiring against you:

whatthefuckhypothyroidismpicture

My book —-

For those who are finally fed up with false promises, unrealistic expectations, fad diets, and yo-yo weight gain—there is help.

Are you tired of feeling not your best?

This is my strategy and what you will learn out of this book-

*How to reverse your hypothyroidism naturally

*Learn what is really going on with your body*

Wouldn’t this book be certainly worth if you were able to-Gain energy, Lose weight, Grow hair back, Feel like your old self again, Resolve memory issues, and certainly Heal GI issues

For those who want to get rid of the inflammation, release the weight for good, and return to their real energetic selves, purchase my book where I help to break down exactly how and what  you need to do to break the cycle of sickness.

What the F#@%, Hypothyroidism?: Why your thyroid is conspiring against you

 

whatthefuckhypothyroidismpicture

 

 

Soy Is Not Your Friend

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but soy is NOT a health food nor your friend. And it’s most definitely not a heart healthy or “good for your thyroid” food either.
Soy not only disrupts hormones by mimicking estrogen in your body but it also causes inflammation, contributes to leaky gut syndrome and most likely has been genetically modified (GMO).
Have you noticed the “heart healthy” label from the American Heart Association on soy products? This friendly heart symbol is the result of the US Food and Drug Association deciding about 20 years ago upon some research that soy can lower the risk of heart disease. Sure, it can decrease and lower ‘so-called” bad cholesterol on a very small percentage scale but they fail to tell you the other side to the story.
Soy not only disrupts hormones by mimicking estrogen in your body but it also causes inflammation, contributes to leaky gut syndrome and most likely has been genetically modified (GMO).
In their assessment from 19 out of the 46 studies it showed a decrease in ‘so-called” bad cholesterol but did you know that it’s been proven that many elderly women who had higher cholesterol levels actually lived longer!
(On a side note: After my husband had his heart attack. Yes, it is in his genetic makeup and yes, he was eating badly. His father had 3 heart attacks before the last one killed my father in law. His heart doctor wanted my husband on statin medication and my husband is one of those people who takes what the doctor prescribes but I had to show him, argue with him, plead with him and show him the research where statin drugs were not for him. Now, to this day. He thanks me for being so persistent to his stubbornness. Statin drugs have been pushed on people to lower their cholesterol levels saying it can lower your chances of a heart attack and stroke but no one not even the doctors were telling people what horrible life altering even death in some cases side effects these ‘statin” drugs were having on people. They have been linked to muscle pain, digestive problems, mental fuzziness, liver damage and even death. Do the medications really benefit the person? You must ask yourself. Is it worth the risk? That is your call completely but you can naturally lower your cholesterol if it bothered you with your diet or if it were having an adverse impact on your life… NATURALLY lower it without medication.
You see this friendly heart symbol on unhealthy boxes of cereals, packaged soy milk, edamame, vegetable oils, tofu, High-protein energy bars and snacks or even soy burgers at any given American grocery store. Companies can also take advantage and misuse this heart healthy symbol if they include soy protein on the ingredient list on their highly over processed food aka crap! There is a new trend of soy-based products like the Impossible burger and many more Americans are drinking less cow’s milk and more plant based milks.
Once you begin to read labels then you will start noticing how many companies sneak in soy in the ingredient list.
Brilliant marketing campaigns have lead you to believe that soy products are healthy but in fact it’s completely the opposite.
Soy is cheap to use and it seems to be in everything!
For centuries, Asian people have been consuming fermented soy products such as natto, tempeh, fermented soy sauce, and enjoying the health benefits but there is a difference between real, organic, traditionally fermented soy and unfermented soy. Fermented soy does not wreak havoc on your body like unfermented soy products do and unfermented soy is cheap.
The other issue with soy is that most soy today contains something called phytoestrogens, and these phytoestrogens are estrogen mimickers in the body. And so, if you’re a male consuming extra estrogen, it’s going to give you more feminine characteristics.
If you’re a woman consuming foods that increase estrogen levels, it’s going to increase your risk of breast cancer, cervical cancer, PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) and other hormone imbalance-related disorders.
Many have switched to soy milk because they felt they needed a diary substitute since they couldn’t tolerate dairy. Actually your body was doing you an even bigger favor. Cow milk was made for cow’s not humans. We’ve been lied to again. You don’t need milk from cows to get vitamin d! Vitamin D is added to the cow’s milk. You can naturally get your daily dose of vitamin d from 15 minutes of sunlight each day.
There are some chemicals such as isoflavones, found in soy products like soy milk or edamame, that will halter and intercept your thyroid’s ability to make hormones if you’re not getting enough iodine.
Soybeans are one of the crops that are being genetically modified. Since 1997 GMO soybeans are being used in an increasing number of products.
Dr. Kaayla Daniel, author of The Whole Soy Story, points out thousands of studies linking soy to malnutrition, digestive distress, immune-system breakdown, thyroid dysfunction, cognitive decline, reproductive disorders and infertility—even cancer and heart disease. Here is just a sampling of the health effects that have been linked to soy consumption:
Breast cancer
Brain damage
Infant abnormalities
Thyroid disorders
Kidney stones
Immune system impairment
Severe, potentially fatal food allergies
Impaired fertility
Danger during pregnancy and nursing
My final thoughts on Soy are: Soy is terrible – avoid it like the black plague. It contains trypsin inhibitors, is a source of xenoestrogens, even if it’s organic, it comes with a lot of glyphosate and other pesticide residues and will mimic estrogen in your body plus cause inflammation, contributes to leaky gut syndrome and most likely have been genetically modified (GMO).
Personally, I find coconut aminos are a healthier alternative.

Bio-individuality is a Fancy Word For Personalized Nutrition. How Can You Use Personalized Nutrition to Begin to Heal With Hypothyroidism?

Bio-individuality is a fancy word for personalized nutrition.

There is a new word being coined for an old topic . It’s called bio-individuality.

Bio-individuality is a fancy word for personalized nutrition.

Bio-individual diets aka personalized nutrition plans have been proven to help a person begin to heal because frankly just general health recommendations don’t and won’t always work, therefore people need to use bio-individuality aka personalized nutrition plan to figure out what is the best fit for their health care needs.

I’ve been writing about bio-individuality aka personalized nutrition for years because we are all wired differently and what works for one many not work for another. Also, we have different health issues plus gut microbes. I certainly didn’t need a scientist or any fancy computerized algorithm to confirm what I’ve been writing about this entire time.

Personalized nutrition simply caters and is tailored to an individual based on any health issues such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes,  high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disorders, cancer and whatever else is going on within the walls of your skin.  Genetic history, current blood work and food intolerances are also taken into consideration. Other things that need to be taken into consideration is gut microbe along with blood sugar balances.

The first results from the Personalised Nutrition Project, run by leading researchers in Israel, are due to be unveiled on Friday at the Human Microbiome conference in Heidelberg, Germany.
The project challenges the idea that general recommendations about healthy foods are suitable for everyone, and instead aims to produce optimized diets based on people’s unique biological make-up.

Personalized nutrition is ambitious, rigorous and vague because if you don’t know the person you are working with then its throwing away time.

Personalized nutrition can be very liberating for people and provide an eye-opening experience that in reality, healthy eating does not have to be as limiting or depriving as they perceive.

The human gut microbiome is being recognized more and more as having a fundamental role in our human health and physiology. Gut microbiome is has been proved to be affect more by the environment than by their genetics.
*Scientists and researchers believe the tailored diets could help stem the rising tide of diabetes, heart disease and obesity, by personalizing people’s daily meals and so helping them to adopt healthy eating habits.
*Scientists have created bespoke diets using a computer algorithm that learns how individual bodies respond to different foods…

One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself is a nutrition plan that are specific to your needs and health conditions to ultimately help you meet your goal.

“For example, someone with a hypothyroidism, high blood pressure and chronic insomnia often has to limit or eliminate many types of foods that would traditionally be deemed healthy for others. Also it also should personally tailored to your glucose food responses, along with what health issues your have, your lifestyle and your gut microbe.

This is why the size-fits-all diets dont work for people and although friends and family members may have good intentions their good hearted diet recommendation could actually complicate an individuals health condition even further.
Personalized nutrition isn’t simply a way for you not to eat certain foods or to concentrate solely on consuming others. It’s a completely new lifestyle approach that also incorporates fitness, stress reduction and becoming a healthier you.

I’ve been writing about bio-individuality aka personalized nutrition for years and I talk about it in many of my already published books.

Bio-individuality is a fancy work for personalized nutrition.
