You may consider Googling “Source Resonance” and “Source Medicine”, and “Amma Resonance Healing Foundation”. Its Homeopathic healing by sound and it works. My husband of nearly 91 and I of 75 started listening to it four weeks ago. I contracted Covid 19 – listless, headache, fever and chill, painful body, sore throat and runny nose. My husband suffers from diabetes, high blood pressure etc, he should have been on the danger list .His symptoms were tiredness and a dry cough. Our symptoms were for only a few days and very mild. We also took Gelsemium and Echinacea (30ch) once a day.
The sound acts like a vaccination so, should you get the virus, it should be mild. You also use it as a medicine if you do contract the virus.
I have heard that one can be reinfected so we will continue this protocol. I suggest you learn more about this treatment – and its also not expensive. Good luck and stay safe

I’m sure this is good advice. My question is whether there are clear default guidelines for medical personnel in dire medical circumstances. I don’t just mean rules regarding what to do when e.g ventilators are scarce and it’s not possible to ventilate all who need it. Should we assume that all doctors/hospitals will always where available undertake potentially catastrophic measures for the slimmest of chances to save a life? When advance directives are recommended it often seems that this is so. In short, what advance directives will doctors comply with in the absence of a given patient’s personal documents or otherwise expressed preferences? Are there accepted standards in the USA or is it a state by state or other decision?

Could the Covid 19 made it’s presence in late 2019 , early fall it was noted the flu vaccine wouldn’t make a difference with the ‘ New Flu’ of 2019 compounded with no new or stronger vaccine the virus mutated giving us Covid 19 I like many others experienced at least 1-2 episodes last year of achy, feverish, headache, fatigue, body pain, sore throat, etc… feels like Covid19 I can’t believe it just showed up in 2020

Advance Care Planning

Living wills and health care proxies — documents known as advance care directives — give you a voice in decisions about your medical care at the end of life. Without these documents, choices may be left up to a doctor or a judge — someone who does not know your values, beliefs, or preferences. This Special Health Report, Advance Care Planning: A guide to advance directives, living wills, and other strategies for communicating health care preferences, will help you plan ahead and create legal documents to guide decision makers at this important time.
