Cut sugar, control the virus

While the Covid-19 vaccine rollout grows apace around the globe, I am continuously astonished to see that no government or health authority has ever bothered to discuss the most basic of questions about this disease.

For instance, why is it that certain populations like Americans and British people have more deaths from Covid than others? What factors differentiate someone who gets Covid and experiences a mild form of the illness from someone who gets a severe form of the disease and dies?

Thus far, doctors only point to a few characteristics that predispose people to serious Covid: age, health conditions like heart disease, diabetes or vascular disease, and being a person of color. And they leave it at that, as though it is a strange accident of birth.

Nobody bothers to connect the dots and then follow where they lead.

So, here’s the trail as we see it.

First off, we know that Americans and British people have suffered more deaths than elsewhere in Europe. It can’t be solely down to government incompetence because other countries have been slow to respond to the virus with adequate equipment, lockdowns and the like.

It might have far more to do with the fact that both populations are among the unhealthiest in the West. According to a 2014 Lancet review of nearly 1,800 studies of global obesity rates, the US holds the dubious distinction of having the highest number of overweight and obese people in the world.

In America, the study found, nearly 71 percent of men and 62 percent of women are overweight or obese. That compares to an average worldwide obesity level of 38 percent for men and 37 percent for women.

As for Britain, it has its own dubious distinction as the most obese nation in Western Europe, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

In fact, Britain’s rates of overweight and obesity—now 63 percent of all adults—are rising faster than those of any other developed nation.

Britain is now sixth heaviest of the OECD’s 35-member club of wealthy nations and one of five countries suffering from “historically high” rates of obesity since the 1990s.

Since that time, rates of obesity have increased by 92 percent in the UK, considerably worse than even the 65 percent increase in the United States over the same period.

Obesity leads to that entire cascade of illnesses—high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases—all known to be risk factors for Covid.

It’s not the only reason people react badly to Covid. Brazil has high levels of deaths and illness from the virus too, says Dr. Robert Verkerk, director of Alliance for Natural Health International, largely because it arrived more recently and in its most virulent form.

So being overweight is not the only risk factor, but it’s certainly one of the major ones.

Here’s the possible reason why.

Insulin, that all-important hormone produced by the pancreas, transfers sugar from the blood into the cells in muscles, liver and all other tissues, to be used in the production of ATP, the basic form of energy on which all our cells run. The amount of sugar in the blood returns to normal, and any excess is stored in muscles or fat cells to be used in the future.

With overweight or obese individuals, when sugar continuously floods their bloodstream, the insulin system gets overwhelmed, the cells stop responding appropriately to the insulin, and they become insulin resistant. The pancreas keeps flooding the body with insulin in an attempt to rectify things, but to no avail.

This vicious cycle continues until eventually the person develops metabolic syndrome, and, ultimately, one or more of a host of degenerative diseases.

Besides damaging mitochondria, the power packs of the cells, insulin resistance results in chronic inflammation. In this state, if confronted with a foreign invader like a virus, the immune system remains on hyperdrive. The body’s responses to the invader linger, ultimately damaging healthy cells, tissues and organs.

Cytokines are the Paul Revere of the immune system. Ordinarily they ride through the bloodstream calmly, alerting the cells if an infection has arrived and instructing them about the kind of counterattack needed.

But if the immune system has stayed on high alert, a vast army of Paul Reveres is produced, and the cells get instructed to initiate full-out bloody combat, causing enormous collateral damage to the body’s own healthy cells, tissues and organs.

The patient ultimately dies from an outsize response of their own immune system.

The next dot in our join-the-dots: we know that vitamin D helps to regulate insulin production and other elements of the immune system. People of color, particularly those living in northern climates, may require more vitamin D than people of other nationalities.

Although governments around the world are content to shore up all these damaged immune systems with a vaccine, there’s another, simpler way.

Our immune systems display an intelligence that we will never be able to artificially reproduce. Simple measures can actually rejuvenate your immune system, enabling it to better carry out the miraculous work it was designed to do.

On February 10, my husband and WDDTY co-founder Bryan Hubbard and I held an amazing webinar with three immune-system experts: Dr Verkerk, Dr Sarah Myhill and Dr Robert Rountree, all speaking about how to create immune-system rejuvenation.

Each of them stressed that the immune system can be reset fairly easily by following an organic, low-carb diet, taking high dose vitamin C and D, zinc and selenium, inhaling a few drops of iodine and supplementing with other herbs and substances with fairly amazing immune-boosting powers.

You can get hold of a recording here.

Before we constantly look to nanotechnology and cutting-edge medicine to ‘improve’ the human system, it’s vital to keep the extraordinary system we were born with in top working order.

The British government has been keen on advertising catchy slogans about Covid, redolent of ads during World War II: ‘Control the virus, protect the NHS, save lives.’

I’ve got a better mantra for them and every other government around the world:  ‘Cut sugar, take your supplements, save lives.’

  1. As a doctor supplementing micronutrients and Vitamin D and so on, I am telling every patient that we have many many studies that show that the deaths could be reduced dramatically! by giving Vitamin D sufficiently. Additionally we should give selenium in countries where it is lacking. Selen is important so we develop less mutations!
    Unfortunately all those therapists like me are not heard. But isn´t that a feeling of lack that we transport here? Have to go and meditate on abundance! ❤️

  2. Dear Lynn, do you know Alan Christianson, NMD, who is a doctor and reasearcher and told us that that the US and many other western countries have now a iodine overtake no more a deficiency. So that all aditional iodine will harm the people. I am now confused if I should take iodine or avoid it as much as possible? I have Hashimoto.

    Thank you for your wunderful work. I am also in your Power of 8 class from 2020.
    Best, Dagmar from Germany

  3. Hi, I like your article, and I agree. Here is another thought: many people are obese because they can't afford healthy foods. The US has a large amount of poor people!

  4. Why would anyone give away their inner Power to a harmless virus by imagining it to be harmful. covid is like all virus's. a tiny speck of protein, inert, unable to replicate until it gets into a cell in your body where it is able to get into your weak cells. healthy cells won't let it in. we have millions of virus's in our body and without them we would be very unhealthy. it's big pharma and medical industrial that brain washed us about this beautiful process differently to make huge amounts of money. They did their job well. we need education on our amazing, reliable, Perfectly working Immune system which works 24/7 instantly when it detects something we shouldn't have in our body. SUGAR be hanged as that is just more fricking brainwashing. You have had People on your show telling you what i just wrote.

  5. Thank you Lynne, it is great to get these little reinforcements of the 'good health is best' variety. I lost fait back in the 1970's over a minor un diagnosable illness that was actually an overgrowth of candida and, once I found out, I quickly fixed it. The antibiotics I had been prescribed at the time merely contributing to the problem, not fixing it!
    I have stayed away from the orthodox stuff ever since and have followed my own research into good health. It works! I have learned from many 'alternative health specialists from the early understanding of thought and belief being crucial to health, through the scientific realisation about energy and energy medicine and the obvious, healthy food builds healthy bodies. Where food is depleted, take supplements of minerals and vitamins. And drink clean water.
    Anything too processed ,with all the additives, avoid.
    It might require a bit of will power or won't power but it is worth it.
    Your WTDDTY is a wonderful magazine and has guided me for years. Oh yes, and the NHS wouldn't need 'saving' if the finances it needed had been given rather than closing hospitals and reducing staf to try to 'save money!'

  6. Yes! You are so right!!!
    Actually there is another reason to cut sugar: viruses and bacteria thrive in a sweet environment. Another thing that makes our body more acid is having negative emotions! Start by stop watching bad news.

    By the way, Brazilians love sugar. At every corner you can find juice bars. Maybe that and the fact that as a culture they do not like to be constrained contributes to the COVID situation.

  7. This is so true, and thank you for the additional evidence. How can we possibly explain why all governments (as far as I know, including the French government which I suffer) have entirely ignored this fundamental health advice? Well, maybe it's not worth the speculation about why. Each of us just needs to take personal responsibility.

  8. You're absolutely right that overweight and obesity make people more susceptible to COVID-19. However, you're wrong here: "Thus far, doctors only point to a few characteristics that predispose people to serious Covid: age, health conditions like heart disease, diabetes or vascular disease, and being a person of color.... Nobody bothers to connect the dots and then follow where they lead."

    Maybe it's different in the UK, but here in the US, obesity is CONSTANTLY cited both in literature for health care professionals like me and in the popular press. Everyone appears to be quite aware of the connection. Ironically, people have tended to gain more weight during the pandemic period....

    Two of the issues making obese people more vulnerable to the virus are a higher level of inflammation throughout the body, as you mentioned, and the simple fact of the extra weight around the chest making it harder to breathe. Being overweight but not obese is less of a risk, but the risk is still elevated compared to that of a thinner person.

    Americans and Brits need to eat better for these and myriad other reasons, very true. We need every possible nutritional boost for our immune systems, AND, in this case, we need vaccines as well. I'm as alternative as it is possible to be in medicine, but I've taken the vaccine along with everything else I'm doing.

  9. I am a Swiss kinesiologist and fully share your opinion above. (Our national sin is chocolate!!!) But what about the brain? Doesn't it need some sugar to function properly???

  10. Dear Lynne,
    Thank you so much for this information.
    I would be grateful if you would give me precise quantities of all the supplements you recommend, most of which I am taking already. I am particularly interested in the use of iodine and colloidal silver.
    Your conversation with Bruce Lipton was fascinating and the clarity it gave me on exacly what The Field actually is, has been so helpful.
    With thanks and love.

  11. It is a multi million dollar industry all around the world. Look at the amount of tax they collect on sugar in South Africa. The government insisted sugar be cut down in all sugary drinks, so now those companies are substituting the sugar with sweetners, which is worse, so they making the people more sick with all the aspartame and acesulfame they are imbibing. No government will ever ask that of their people. Less will be sick, imagine that, a healthier population. They won't have it.

  12. "Our immune systems display an intelligence that we will never be able to artificially reproduce."
    As Dr. Vasant Lad says, "the body is a chemical lab"
    Say it louder! These are messages our 21st century needs to hear.
    Thanks for a good article.

  13. As member in the 2020 Masterclass, I have followed Lynne and subscribed to WDDTy for a number of years. I have watached the various Get Well presentations and appreciate them, immensely I might say. The knowledge and wisdom of presenters is amazing.

    I've asked this question a number of times and don't seem to receive an answer. On the Lugo's iodine, once again Dr Myhill mentioned it and demonstrated the salt pipe. What does one do to actually purchase it, if not living in the UK? I was able to buy a very low percentage dose of Dr Lugo's in America. However, once purchased I decided it wasn't worth using. So where does one 'get their hands' on the right percentage of Dr Lugo's? OR what can be used in place of it?

Why wait any longer when you’ve already been waiting your entire life?
