NAIC: Thai Yoga Center Bulletin: Updated 12/07/2020
How to Practice SomaVeda Integrated Traditional Therapies® Thai Yoga Under Corona Concerns
We have been receiving many queries from SomaVeda® Thai Yoga graduates and practitioners regarding how to practice or even whether they should practice at all during the Covid-19 pandemic situation. Some practitioners are located in states with “Lock Downs” and “Stay at Home Orders” and “Social Distancing” to one degree or another from quite harsh to little or no! There is no uniform strategy or solution being applied nationally. This is further complicated by local jurisdictions interpreting the “recommendations” of elected officials. In most states Massage Therapy as an industry has either been completely shut down or severely restricted, only being considered “essential” if a Licensed MD prescribes it for example… How often does that happen even in the best of times? My understanding is rarely if ever. Who can make a living like this? More than this who can help using their skills to heal their community like this?
Dr. James on Safe Practice 12/08/2020
Dr. James give an Update 05/19/2020
So what are you to do as a practitioner?
Well, if your a smart and prepared practitioner you have been working under your NAIC Legal umbrella as an NAIC AFM Authorized Minister Practitioner. Because we who practice under NAIC are legal to offer our services and minister to our members! Yes, even under “shutdown” orders. Why is this? several reasons… I won’t do the whole “Legal Guidelines ” lecture here as it is located in class, in “The Book” and in other “Legal” articles I have posted here… but I will say it simply because of A) Somaveda® Thai Yoga is NOT legally defined as “Massage” and or “Massage Therapy” unless you call it so, and or market it as such on a personal basis (Shame of you!). and B) Under NAIC Tribal Org. It is a Religious Therapeutic Ministry and “Sacerdotal Duty” of NAIC as a healing ministry. As a “Religious Practice” our healing ministry is exempted overtly from most if not all legal restrictions… Even where there have been unconstitutional (illegal- unenforceable) restrictions on religious practices they still allow “Social Distancing” and “Safe Practices”.
First a reminder here! The primary outcomes of SomaVeda® Thai Yoga are “PromiiWihanSii“ or the four divine states of mind! They are Love, Compassion, Joy and Equanimity. Do you have to physically touch or be present with an individual to show, to practice or to do this? No! This means you can practice at a distance, by phone, by video or in person but with a short separation between you!
The SomaVeda® training and certification you were given included in depth education in Eating, Sacred Nutrition, Energy healing, Energy Psychology (BET/ Tapping), concrete strategies for dealing with Cancer, Diabetes and Heart Disease as well as natural solutions for infections, pain and inflammation, toxicity and deficiency. Yes, in class we emphasized the Marma Chikitsa or Hands-on (Chirothesia), However, we do train all practitioners in the holistic Ayurveda based practices of indigenous, traditional medicine as well. When you can’t emphasize the hands on … what do you emphasize? Well, every thing else! If you have forgotten the everything else… I have given you access to a wealth of practical review and new materials in our LearnThaiYoga On-Line/ Distance learning platform for only $12.00 per month! I know ridiculously cheap for whats there. More than this there are dozens of individual lessons on how to keep you centered, healthy and organized right now! Complete reviews of all basic SomaVeda® levels, Tapping and food related.
SomaVeda® Adjunctive Therapies: Consider for the current time emphasizing SomaVeda® Adjunct Therapies: Nutritional consulting, Energy Psychology and BET/ EFT, Ayurveda Counseling, SomaVeda® T.A.E.L.R. (Tool Assisted Energy Line Release Protocols), Nuad Prakhop and Herbal therapies, SomaVeda® Homeopathy/ Bach Flower Remedies and Sacred Waters Therapies, PEMF/ Bio-Mat and or Voltage based Therapies, Rife/ Radionic and or distance Therapies i.e. No contact vibrational Therapies etc… We have so much to offer in our tool kit for wellness. There is a therapy approach suitable for every situation no matter how dire!
There is currently no cure for Corona and there won’t be one anytime soon. Eventually, everyone is going to catch it and go through it however, they do. The most important strategy is not to try to avoid it, but to ensure that everyone who either has already been exposed or is going to be exposed (everyone) is as healthy in every way possible right now and if possible before they are infected.
This relates to “co-morbidity” i.e. the underlying, and or pre-existing medical and health conditions which complicate and exacerbate the progress and mortality possibility of Covid infections such as Diabetes, Heart Disease and Cancer, Immune Disorders or Syndromes, other unknown or “Sub-clinical” infections, Vaccine Injuries, Malnutrition, Toxicities and Deficiencies, chronic inflammatory conditions etc. From the basic certification you have the information to use for counseling on these issues!
Other established co-morbidities are STRESS! Depressions, Anxieties, Fears, Phobias, Rage and irrational anger, Addictions either alcohol, drugs or both! People are suicidal from despair and who is counseling them? You know the fundamentals of Energy Psychology i.e. BET/ EFT/ Tapping, a proven therapy you are legally authorized to do. If you did nothing but market and practice coaching and counseling people to Tapp on their emotional, mental issues you would be a God send.
Do everything, offer everything and find what your community wants and needs from you!
Under NAIC as an Authorized Full Blessed Member you are legal and able to do programs and sessions for your patients and clients using everything you have been given access to in your training and certification for Ministry. Yes that includes “hands-On”. But, no matter how you define or redefine your practice let it be a SomaVeda® practice. What I mean by that is a WHOLISTIC practice. I implore you to not define your practice as a “massage” , “Bodywork” or “rubbing on people for money” practice. A) That is NOT what SomaVeda® is. B) It is NOT what you were trained and or certified in. C)It is a misrepresentation of the Sacred art and entirely self limiting both for you and your clients.
My new lecture lesson series on “SomaVeda® 49 systems of Self Expression and Healing” offers many different way to take what you already know and have and format, emphasize and or market it in new and interesting ways both as service offerings and as profit centers for you!
Ayurveda is a comprehensive system of indigenous traditional medicine which has many solutions for Corona co-morbidty! If your SomaVeda® Advanced Practitioner and or Teacher you know this and have the training in Ayurveda therapy which you can counsel with.
Bottom line? If your not practicing under NAIC your on your own! Sorry, Best of luck to you negotiating the current shifting legal and health sands. If your an NAIC Authorized practitioner of any level then your legal to practice if you follow strictly all of the legal guidelines! I said IF. If you do not follow ALL of the guidelines you are simply not protected. This means every client, every single one has to be an NAIC Member… No exceptions. You have them join NAIC as an APM Member if they are not already one. Your clients can do this easily now with the New OnLine APM Registry at SomaVeda.Com. Additionally , every client, no exceptions must fill out and sign the NAIC Informed Consent and Waiver Form. You were given copies of this Consent form, additionally the form is found in the Practitioner DropBox. If you need a blank, contact the office. If legal protection was ever important it is doubly so now under the current conditions. If your not clear… go to the “Legal Guidelines” course at LearnThaiYoga and review the published materials.
* Keeping in mind your legal Exceptions for religious practice. Be sure to practice legally, and within all national and local laws and guidelines. Remember! “Suggested Mandates” and or “Suggested Guidelines” are NOT Laws. No more so than when your Mom used to tell you to come home before late! * Change your rules and regulations to comply with the lawful laws, and to be safe at all times. Make sure that all clients are NAIC Members and fill out both NAIC APM Membership and Informed Consent forms to follow your new guidelines.
*Make sure to copy and prominently display your NAIC Authorization, AFM and or LCHT… If your an Ordained Minister, make sure those documents are framed and on the wall, entry way of any office, clinic or practice areas. * Consider taking the temperature of every client before they enter your practice room. It is ok to ask (not require) clients to wash before entering the room and to optionally give the clients the option to wear a mask. The therapist may also do the same, if that is the only way to get them into your practice! The wearing of mask by the public has been completely and scientifically debunked/ discredited by most national and international experts. 73% of persons who claim to have been infected became so while wearing masks.
Let me be clear, wearing of mask is social virtue signalling and has nothing tom do with disease transmission of any virus. Many ordinary people who watch way too much “news” still believe they need to wear a muzzle or “face shaming” device for their safety.
SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Sessions are for healing and therapy and we DO need to provide a congenial and atmosphere that allows the clients to be relaxed… if that means wearing a mask then I will not turn away a client or church member because they feel they need to wear a mask. As a matter of policy NAIC does not require mask wearing for services for the obvious reasons.
* Change the way you perform SomaVeda® Thai Yoga. For fearful clients, avoid close contact with the client’s face or breath, and keep your face at a safe distance. This is the same procedure that you would follow in dealing with any person with a severe emotional trauma. We can achieve much benefit by working into issues tangentally or indirectly.
Suggestion and Use AYURVEDA recommendations for all pre- and or co- morbidities! I have written an extensive article with official AYUSH Ayurveda recommendations for Ayurveda medicines and supplements to keep you and your clients in tip top health and wellness. Please take a minute and familiarize yourself with the proven strategies being currently used and recommended by our Ayurvedic Medical counterparts in India and elsewhere. “SomaVeda® Thai Yoga and Ayurveda Solutions for Corona Issues“In addition to the Herbs and medicines listed I have included links on Beardedmedia.com for you to locate and purchase all the recommend supplements.
Please Note: Having made the obligatory recommendations… Do you need to really be concerned with contracting and or spreading the “Virus”? NO! The risk as promoted by the media and official government hype is “hype”-er-bolic and completely and maliciously over blown and over stated. Unless your over age 83, with severe and chronic underlying issues such as obesity (+150 to 200+ lbs.) diabetes, heart disease and or cancer etc. while in a hospice or nursing home (over 70% of all mortality is in hospice or nursing home) at the same time as you have a serious case, you will 98 to 99% never know you were sick or have the first symptom, same for everyone you know! My strongest recommendation is that IF your concerned then stay home and do what you think is right for yourself… however, better still is to take some of the “At Home” time and invest in becoming a “Corona Expert”! We have the training to assist you in this at LearnThaiYoga in the “Natural Solutions for Corona, Flu and Novel Viral Infections“ course. I recommend this “Non-Hype” education into an issue that will be affecting your business and life for the far future!
* Consider using your feet and SomaVeda® T.A.E.L.R. (Tool Assisted Energy Line Release), instead of your hands. Consider working most of the session in side position, to maintain more distance between therapist and client, and to keep faces pointing away from each other.
* To what degree it is feasible, ensure plenty of fresh air and sunlight in the treatment area. Consider moving your mat, table or chair outdoors! Fresh air is good for many reasons.
* Make plenty of Colloidal Silver! Spray everything before and after, let “air dry” as a disinfectant. Do the same for your mask, gloves, face! Spray your mat. If you can not make your own silver because you never did invest in a Silver Maker as we taught in class, then you can order one now through the School or by the new “MIMIM Blue Sacred Water” at BeardedMedia.com… Best if you make your own for yourself and your clients!
* I am also recommending that you have a new mat or back up mat that can be cleaned and disinfected between sessions..These are the same type of mats now being used everywhere in Thailand today. Cloth mats are comfy and attractive but they are not hospital grade for cleaning. Here’s a link for the type of Mat we recommend now for professionals. We will be using these type of mats as well here at the Thai Yoga Center for the reasons stated above. Vinyl Mat: Click Here! These mats come in various sizes and are reasonably priced!
Please let us know if you have any specific conditions, questions or challenges not addressed in this notice.
Keep Working! Be the source person for healing you were born to be!

I published an Article in March of 2011 because of my families history with vaccine injury… To see or read the original article in it’s full length go to The Truth about Vaccines
As much as things change in some ways they remain the same!!
News and November 27th, 2020 Update!
Two New Video’s Everyone Needs to see!
We need to know the Pro’s and Cons. We need to know the risk and any possible rewards. This necessary information is not just for parents! Now that we are in the “Corona” age amid the shrill tone, the hue and cry for a “universal” vaccine? What is the real story? I do not know all the details as the Vaccine landscape is changing from day to day. I can tell you the CDC, The FDA, The US HHS is not sharing the whole story, not by a long shot. This is going to be a long issue affecting us and our children for decades and we need to know the players, the agenda, the real science from the mouth of the worlds top experts and the risks heading our way so we can make informed decisions on our person, professional, familial and societal position in regard to making choices about the indiscriminate and possibly, forceful mandated vaccination programs on the horizon.
“Insight Into Vaccines for Thai Yoga, Ayurveda and Healing Arts Practitioners” now available on the LearnThaiYoga.Teachable.com platform! An amazing and comprehensive deep dive into the issues and concerns, the helpful resources to Vaccine issues for the professional therapist, their clients and their family. Start Today!
A little over twenty years ago, when my nephew was only about 2 years old he suffered an irreparable injury from a mandated vaccine cocktail. He was a precocious, active, talkative, walking, climbing, laughing, cuddly baby boy. No illnesses or underlying conditions… i.e. perfect bill of health. My Brother and sister in-law took him to the Pediatrician for his mandated “standard” vaccinations (see graphic)
Immediately upon receiving the last shot he started screaming and curled up into a little ball. He screamed as if gasoline had been poured on him and set on fire. Later I learned this type of screaming when in extreme pain has it’s own name… it’s called keening and is typical of sounds we make when in extreme pain before dying of trauma. He could not be consoled. He did eventually stop this continuous screaming … when he entered into a coma. He was in a coma for between 24 and 48 hrs. and when he recovered he was no longer the same child. He no longer could speak, was unresponsive to verbal or any other type of stimulation, would start screaming again if touched and would no longer make eye contact. He rocked and mostly cried. He could no longer crawl or walk.
The first time after this, the first time he offered to be touched and volunteered a hug to me, his uncle, was at my mom’s funeral 20 something years later! I can not say how much I was moved by the simple gesture.
He was diagnosed with severely affected “Rapid Onset” Autism Spectrum disorder and life with an autistic son and nephew began. The Doctors and nurses told us it was a random “act of God”, even though in real time the odds of having a sudden (within minutes) deterioration into a coma after receiving his vaccination, not being related to the vaccination are infinitesimally small. We learned later than not only did this “occasionally” happen, but it happened so often the Federal government has set up a “Vaccine Court” to settle the cases under gag orders. If the truth got out to the average person in the public… no one would risk the life and future of their own child.
I have been researching Vaccines for a solid fifteen years and have learned much. I have learned to hope. After learning that the likely suspect in my nephews Autism was in fact a vaccination, I also learned of research into9 reducing the harmful effects he had suffered and to lead him to be less severely affected and to be able to be restored to some health and productive life. Through primarily changes in diet and the use of supplements including specialized probiotic’s, I am proud to say he is doing terrific. Yes, he still has Autism and issues, but as a millenial Young man he now has a job, hobbies and is quite the savant when it comes to dinosaurs!
I want to pass on the information that I and hundreds of thousands of parents and concerned scientist from both the US and around the world have learned to date about Vaccinations! You are going to have to make informed choices in the not so distant future. I am not saying what you as an individual or parent should do other than if and when you need to make a choice make an informed one.
My friends and associates Ty and Charlene Bollinger have put together an incredible team of scientists, Health and Vaccine experts to create the most up to date, current and accurate presentation on every aspect of vaccines.
The Bad News! So far as of today… the risk of death associated with Covid exposure is proportional to complicating , underlying chronic and or acute pre-existing issues. As I read through the numbers I see the vast majority on morbid outcomes occur for those individuals who ALREADY have severe health issues before becoming infected… Keep in mind the reason why so many are surprised or shocked when people die is because they didn’t consider the underlying, chronic diseases the patient was already dying or at risk of dying of a serious!
Read the whole article…But then try to find a way to wrap your head around the idea that the greatest health risk by far of Covid-19 to you and everyone you know is underlying unresolved heath issues and the chemical prescription drugs used to treat or control them!
Pre and Co-Morbidity! Coupled with deficient nutrition and rampant malnutrition, poor diet consisting of “Franken-foods” GMO’s, Artificial everything, anything, artificial sweeteners, out right malnutrition from common deficiencies of vitamin, minerals, Iodine, vitamin D, C etc. Lack of grounding, lack of sunshine, lack of fresh air, lack or insufficient exercise including load bearing and aerobic, chronic dehydration, insufficient deep sleep, Chronic constipation, Chronic Diarrhea, Gut Dysbiosis, Pre and Pro-biotics out of balance, ELF/ EMF Harmful energy exposure, Radiation from Chernobyl and Fukoshima… Don’t forget the many common Chemical Drugs/ Pharmaceutical that are known to shut down critical immune system functions…
Add in a real infectious vector Corona… Well you get the picture, right? It’s a perfect storm and the big numbers start to make sense!
Add in a real infectious vector Corona… It’s a perfect storm and the big numbers start to make sense!
The Good News! The solution? What we have been saying literally for the past 50 years. Concepts which still appear “novel” to the mainstream medical community and or industry. Conceptes which are labeled at best CAM i.e. complimentary and alternative medicine practices and at worst “Quackery”. Concepts such as Indigenous, traditional, Natural and Holistic Medicine and Health practices which reduce both the frequency, duration and morality of over 90% of the underlying chronic and acute issues which contribute to mortality (Death) including “Physician” caused death by malpractice and prescribing of harmful chemical and toxic drugs.
These CAM practices come by many names: Ayurveda, Traditional Thai Ayurveda- Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) including Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Yunani Medicine, Hilot Medicine, Naturopathy and Nature Cure Medicine, Monastic Medicine and or Religious Therapeutics, Native American Medicine, Herbology, Aroma-therapy, Acupressure, Light therapy, PEMF (Pulsed Electro-magnetic Therapy), Homeopathy, Chelation Therapy, Nutrition Therapy, Health Coach etc. These are all recognized by The Who, provide care for billions of people to some degree or another in the world today. What these all share in common is that they provide relatively safe, predictable and functional medicinal outcomes towards reducing or eliminating underlying chronic and or acute health issues with little or NO risk of associated death. They share aims for example to KEEP YOU OUT OF THE Hospital, the emergency room.
Short Term, What Do I DO? Sixteen Helpful Suggestions from the Doctor!
What to do until or while your waiting for an appointment for counseling or treatment protocol from your chosen provider?
In many states “social Distancing” guidelines and restrictions have recently been found to be unconstitutional and not based on science or sound medicine practice! Check your local and state guidelines to see if you live in a state where the Governor’s mandates have been found to be illegal and unscientific and or current status.
Do NOT wear a mask in public… It is not scientifically valid and for many causes far more harm than good! (See Video: Why are We Wearing Mask?) If you must wear a mask… Clean and re-sterilize your mask regularly: Wash with hot soapy water, rinse, dry in regular over at 130degrees for at least 20 min. Spray with Colloidal Silver and let air dry. However!Do Not mistake this recommendation as a “Health Recommendation”! It is NOT! Wearing a Mask, any mask for a prolonged time causes Hypoxia and oxygen starvation which begins immediately to cause harm…Watch this video… Truth Bombs! Rant #2: Why Are We Wearing Mask?
If you have a fever Do Not Go Out… Do Not Socialize and observe a voluntary stay at home. There are many reason other than Corona to have a fever, but for the care of those you love stay at home if you have a fever. This should be common sense.
Wash Your Hands before and after each session… There are many guides to this now that everyone is an expert! If unsure if your doing it right… go to YouTube and search!
Stay Healthy, drink plenty of water, eat right, get rid of the junk food, go outside, get plenty of sunshine, be happy , have some fun, enjoy your family and your pets!
Take your supplements! Now is not the time to be slack! If you need to order or restock, do so now as delivery times could be slower for a while. Take those minerals, Iodine, Vitamen C, D, Zinc. Take your probiotics. Ask about our Ayurveda, Chinese medicine and Herbal Medicine support recommendation’s!
Manage your diabetes by eating a mostly plant based diet. If necessary take a fortified meal supplement with digestive enzymes.
Eat more Sprouts!
Use an Infrared Sauna or Infrared Lamp, Bio-Mat etc.
DO NOT take any drug as protection AGAINST infection! Remember ALL Chemical Drugs and or Vaccines have serious adverse effects! Don’t take any drug unless you know what those side effects, even death, are and are making an informed decision.
Obtain a Nebulizer for both O2 therapy and or Colloidal Silver if need be.
Work on your emotional, mental and or psychiatric health and stay balanced! Use your BET/ Tapping/ EFT/ Energy Psychology to stay healthy and happy on the inside.
Let go of the minute by minute social diarrhrea and endless news updates… Once you know what your dealing with and where the real risk are coming from, then that is your point of focus! One more statistic is NOT going to assist you in either not becoming sick or dying of Corina!
Spend time with attractive and positive people! Phone, video, yelling over the fence! However, you can do it. Socializing is also a necessary part of an over all health plan.
Get real help for your pain issues! Back pain, neck pain, Knee pain… whatever it is there is a CAM Provider who can follow a safe protocol and treat your pain. Don’t suffer in silence because you don’t have to.
Make that appointment for a personal consultation. Most good SomaVeda® Thai Yoga, Ayurveda, TCM, Chiropracters, Holistic Health Coaches and Nutritionist Counselors are really busy right now, so you likely will have to plan ahead.
Schedule and start a SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Protocol with an NAIC Authorized Professionally Certified Professional to both reduce underlying health issues and build support for proper immune system function, to de-compress, de-stress and bring a joy for living back into your life!
In fact many hospitals and emergency rooms are turning sick people who are not severe and obviously infection (option) as it is. So where are these people, where are you and your family and or patient to turn to at this time? I say… same place recommended last year, and the year before… US! The holistic CAM provider is more your resource now than ever before. We are everywhere and in reality not hard to find. Seek out your provider and get cracking with some helpful counseling and therapy today. Don’t continue to procrastinate resolving the underlying health issues that yesterday might not have seemed so important but which today could contribute to taking your life!
PLEASE NOTE: We also have more in-depth Courses and lessons addressing both Corona and Strategies for solving many underlying health issues on our LearnThaiYoga.Teachable.com on-line learning platform… Specifically in the “Jump Start Your Healing Practice and Improve Your Income” All Inclusive Course, program.

Pre and Co-Morbities: Underlying contributors leading to premature death complicated by Covid-19
Please note: I am not going to attempt to list all of the sources here! It’s overwhelming. There are literally thousands of scholarly and or scientific literature describing th morbidity and co-morbidity or these complication health issues.
Primary Immune disorder:
Usually inherited or caused by problems in genes of cells in the immune system, Characterized by infections that are severe, recurrent, and challenging to treat, More common than cystic fibrosis, affecting 1 in 1,200 people in the US:
Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID): People with CVID have decreased levels of antibodies (immunoglobulins) in the blood and are therefore more likely to get infections.
X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA): People with XLA—an inherited form of PI—have very few B cells, which are specialized white blood cells that help protect the body against infection.
Immune globulin G (IgG) Subclass Deficiency: IgG is divided into 4 subclasses: IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, and IgG4. People are said to have an IgG subclass deficiency when they lack or have very low levels of 1 or more IgG subclasses, but their total IgG levels are normal.
Hyper-IgM (HIGM) Syndrome: People with HIGM syndrome have an excess of IgM and reduced levels of other immunoglobulins, including IgG and immune globulin A (IgA).
Selective IgA Deficiency: One of the most common types of PI in Caucasians, selective IgA deficiency, often goes undiagnosed in some people because they are never sick enough to be seen by a doctor. Others, however, may develop a variety of challenges that need medical attention.
Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID): SCID, a serious form of PI, is a rare syndrome with multiple genetic causes.
Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome: Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome is a PI disease that affects both the T and B lymphocytes.
DiGeorge Syndrome: DiGeorge syndrome is a PI disease caused by abnormal formation of certain tissues during fetal development. The defect may affect the thymus gland and impair production of T lymphocytes.
Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T): A-T is a PI disease that affects a number of organs.
Pharmaceutical Drug Issues:
A) Drugs that cause side effects that can exacerbate mortality…
B) Drugs that either are known to cause or to increase risk of induced Pulmonary Disease:
C) Types of lung problems or diseases that may be caused by medicines include, but are not limited to:
Drug-induced interstitial lung disease
Symptoms of Drug-induced interstitial lung disease: dry cough and shortness of breath due to interstitial lung disease, an imaging study may be ordered. A CT scan of the chest would show changes (reticular or ground-glass opacities). Pulmonary function tests may also be ordered by your physician, which can show moderate-to-severe decreases in carbon monoxide diffusion capacity.
Buildup of fluid between the layers of tissue that line the lungs and chest cavity (pleural effusion)
Many medicines and substances are known to cause lung disease in some people. These include:
Antibiotics, such as nitrofurantoin and sulfa drugs
Heart medicines, such as amiodarone
Chemotherapy drugs such as bleomycin, cyclophosphamide, and methotrexate
According to Merk…
Drug-induced pulmonary disease is not a single disorder, but rather a common clinical problem in which a patient without previous pulmonary disease develops respiratory symptoms, chest x-ray changes, deterioration of pulmonary function, histologic changes, or several of these findings in association with drug therapy. Over 150 drugs or categories of drugs have been reported to cause pulmonary disease; the mechanism is rarely known, but many drugs are thought to provoke a hypersensitivity response. Some drugs (eg, nitrofurantoin) can cause different injury patterns in different patients.
List of Drugs Known to cause Lung Failure and Disease…
FURADANTIN, MACROBID, MACRODANTINbromocriptine
No US brand nameAmiodarone
List of Drugs that cause Lung and Heart Injury
Amiodarone is the most common heart drug that causes pulmonary abnormalities. Used for the treatment of atrial fibrillation, pulmonary toxicity affects as many as 6% of individuals on amiodarone. Among these cases, fatality rates range from 10-20%. Eek. A safer, similar medication used for atrial fib is Multaq (dronedarone) which is more expensive than amiodarone but may be a better first choice given the lower risk of lung injury.
Nitrofurantoin (Macrobid) is a commonly prescribed antibiotic used to treat urinary tract infections. Nitrofurantoin has been linked to both acute and chronic lung injury, believed to be a hypersensitivity reaction from the drug.
Methotrexate (Rheumatrex) is used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis as well as other serious skin conditions and carries a known risk of acute interstitial pneumonia.
Biologic agents.Cetuximab (Erbitux), bevacizumab (Avastin), trastuzumab (Herceptin) and alemtuzumab (Lemtrada) are just a few of many in this newer class of medications that have been reported to cause drug induced interstitial lung disease. Again, these are medications used for serious illnesses like cancer and accepting the rare risk of interstitial lung disease may be “worth” it as you will be closely monitored.
Seizure medications.Phenytoin (Dilantin) and carbamazepine (Tegretol)—which is also used to treat pain from trigeminal neuralgia or shingles—are both known to cause drug-induced acute interstitial pneumonitis.
Aspirin and other NSAIDS (ibuprofen, naproxen) may cause acute pulmonary hypersensitivity reactions which may occur within the first week of treatment—or as late as three years after first exposure.
Hydralazine is used for the treatment of high blood pressure and heart failure, and cases of nonspecific interstitial pneumonias have been reported.
Cholesterol medications aka “Statins.” This is tricky because while drug-induced interstitial lung disease has been reported with most statins including pravastatin (Pravachol), simvastatin (Zocor), and atorvastatin (Lipitor), they have also been shown in studies to be associated with lower mortality in people with interstitial lung disease and pulmonary fibrosis.
Drugs that can Lower or act as Immuno-suppressant’s
Reported May 29, 2020, 4 p.m. Those with NDMA (N-Nitrosodimethylamine/ dimethylnitrosamine) formula: (CH₃)₂NNO were recalled and or banned worldwide. The Drugs listed are Metformin, ZANTAC (ranitidine) and other AND GENERIC ZANTAC OTC RANITIDINE DRUGS. All of the following can exacerbate, mask or contribute to Corona symptoms, course and severity, add to complications and complicate treatment of Corona. However many Doctors are still prescribing! (https://www.worldhealth.net/news/fda-recalls-extended-release-metformin-due-impurities/)
Exposure to NDMA can cause cancer. Injuries from NDMA exposure include but are not limited to:
PLEASE NOTE: The above is NOT comprehensive. A list of possible drugs causing and or exascerbating would easily run into the thousands of possible suspects. I personally interviewed a past VP Pharmacology of CVS Pharmacy, who told me emphatically it is scientifically and procedurally impossible to calculate the side effects, adverse reactions and co-morbidity of three or more drug simultaneously.
Considering that the average person in the US (48.4%) takes at least One drug per month more than 36.6% of person in the US take between 3 and 5 prescription chemical drugs per month (CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/drug-use-therapeutic.htm) it doesn’t take a science degree to see that 100% of all of these are likely to have one or more adverse effects and 36.6 % will likely have severe and complicated, un predictable list of adverse effects just from the drugs alone.
List of side effects, adverse effects of Artificial Sweeteners:
Studies have suggested an association between the use of non-nutritive sweeteners and health outcomes (such as body weight, diabetes, cancer, and oral health)… See earlier in this article references for these specific issues relating to co-morbidity!
According to Dr. Osborne: “Current research is limited on the beneficial effects and the long term health risks associated with the ingestion of artificial sweeteners. However, cyclamate (an early artificial sweetener), was banned by the FDA in 1970 due to carcinogenic risks in experimental animals. With this ban, the artificial sweetener market took a hit. Consumers were left scared knowing there could be a cancer risk associated with ingestion of artificial sweeteners. Shortly after, manufacturers replaced one toxic artificial sweetener with new equally toxic sweetener. Many consumers report headaches, dizziness, rashes, bloating, nausea, diarrhea, and digestive problems after ingesting artificial sweeteners. These side effects could build up over time and cause serious long term diseases with regular consumption of these processed sugars.
Currently, the great debate is between the FDA and scientists. In a study determining the effects of saccharin, sucralose and aspartame consumption in both mice and humans, the ingestion of artificial sweeteners altered microbial metabolic pathways6. Studies indicated glucose intolerance was elevated due to changes in gut microbiota. Gut health has to be optimal in order to maintain a healthy immune system and normal metabolic functions in our body. Such metabolic functions include maintaining normal blood pressure, blood glucose, and cholesterol levels. More studies need to be conducted, but scientists believe that there is also a relationship between sweeteners and certain cancers, chronic fatigue syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, autism, and systemic lupus.7
In numerous studies observing weight loss with the ingestion of artificial sweeteners, there is not enough proof that consumption is beneficial in weight management2. Studies are able to show short-term weight loss, but lack any long term weight loss results. However, consumers are still consuming artificial sweeteners in order to reduce their caloric intake with the intent of weight loss based on physician’s recommendations.
Artificial Sweeteners can also develop into an addiction. These processed sugars are 200-13,000 times sweeter than regular sugar5. Over time, the consumption of these artificial sweeteners can alter taste buds and result in a constant craving for foods that are overly sweet. More nutritious foods such as fruits and vegetables become less palatable, so less nutritious sugar-free substitutes and carbohydrates are consumed instead. Consequently, risks for nutrient deficiencies and weight gain increase.”
In case you missed it. There are other amazing and helpful courses and lessons in this LearnThaiYoga Program. I suggest the “Clinical Applications of SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy” Course as a good NEXT STEP!

Hi everyone and good day! Yes, almost everyone (those paying attention) is concerned with the Covid-19 pandemic now consuming the air waves of every news channel! And rightly so! How is this all going to pan out? For most it is a bit uncertain in the short term. For the long, well, it’s going to work out! How do I know this? It always has and always does! This is not the first pandemic of epic proportions and risk to all nor will it be the last.
When we look at the functional, indigenous traditional medicine histories of the past we know that Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Native American Medicine as well as Homeopathy and Nature Cure (i.e. Traditional Naturopathy), especially as found in the Christian Monastic Medicine traditions of the Hospitaller’s (Founder of the Modern “Hospital” concept and “Nursing” weathered in some cases MANY pandemics.
The knowledge and understanding of the basic principles of surviving epidemics has not changed, not been lost just because the “times” have changed. Yes, we do have modern medicine and “medical respirators”, although we have a shortage of individuals who know how to operate these high tech life saving devices.
Disclaimer: This is a theoretical article and opinion about how far can Ayurveda (Ayurveda of Thailand and Thai Yoga i.e. Traditional Thai Massage) be useful in preventing, reducing and/ or treating the symptoms, pre and or co-morbities of “SARS-2 Covid-19”. We are not claiming to prevent or to cure it. Do not follow any advice given in the article (or any part of our website) without consulting your doctor. We have not cured any patients of Corona virus with the treatments discussed below, neither do we claim that these treatment ideas cure it or prevent. Consider it as a mere conceptual article and our learned opinion. However, we have reports of many people no longer suffering, sick or dying who are following these protocols!
SomaVeda® Thai Yoga and Ayurveda Solutions for Corona Issues
Please note the following recommendations are in addition to the really good overall advise and NAIC Monastic Medical Recommendation’s guidelines as well as legal edicts as per governmental authorities. All health and medical recommendation’s on an individual level must follow your personal physicians recommendations.
So… best bet for most people is to:
A) Reduce your exposure! From a scientifically validated point of view, the single most valuable methodology to prevent the contact and spread of contagious disease is to simply keep your hands clean! Wash your hands regularly with ordinary soap and warm water for 20 to 30 seconds. Experts and scientist agree that mask of any kind in the general population do not have any benefit is reducing the spread of a pathogenic virus. A typical mask has open pores between 5 and 10 microns at best. Cloth mask or face coverings might have opening over 100 microns. A typical virus particle is as small as 2 microns. Using a mask to prevent exposure to a virus is like trying to stop moskitoes with a chain link fence!
Close social interaction is required for health and well being as well as resistance to illness and disease. All illnesses and diseases. . Our entire lives are built on and based on socialization and social interaction… It is simply not possible for the greater population to sequester and isolate. Income level, access to deliveries… especially a condition for rural and or remote areas! No “Grub Hub” or “Uber Eats” in these areas. Maybe your a “Prepper” maybe not. But all of us need to be somewhat on the “prepper” train right now and for some unforeseeable future. No matter what your up to reduce your social activities to those activities which support health and self sufficiency as best you can. Many “essential” infrastructure persons from health providers to first responder’s will have the same issues as most of us while being required to get out there in high risk environments… no choice. My advise to these persons is do what you can aside from your job responsibilities to take care of your self and your family! You now have multiple jobs in that you have a public responsibility and still need to take care of your own households.
Avoid isolation: Now that we know that social distancing has little or no measurable effect on the spread of the “Cervesa Bug”. We have to consider that our health can suffer if we isolate ourselves completely. Social isolation, Social Distancing disrupts the functioning of the vagus nerve—the brain-gut connection that regulates our immune system and our response to stress. Try to maintain a sense of social connectedness by engaging in small and safe social gatherings, eating meals with your family or a few friends, and avoiding over-reliance on electronic socialization. Above all, stay calm and open hearted while observing these commonsense precautions which might be prudent for any “Flu or Flu type -Bug”:
Avoid close contact with elderly people who are sick (High Risk for Pre and or co-morbidities). (i.e. 83yr+, Medically Obese, Severe Diabetes, Severe Heart Disease, Cancer in Hospice or Nursing Home!)
Wash your hands frequently.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue; then throw the tissue in the trash.
Keep bundled up and warm during cold weather.
B) Be healthy… If your not? Ask yourself “Why am I not healthy?” if the answer is anything that has been in your power and means to correct… get on it! Every health expert including myself will tell you that your baseline of health and wellness will be a contributing factor in both your personal susceptibility and if and when exposed (and you will be), you experience as virulence, degree of illness and risk of death. We here at the SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine and Thai Yoga Center have been teaching all of these concepts for years! Those of you who are graduates from our programs and especially my classes have heard me tirelessly and repetitively tell to to get your personal health in order.
Do the medicine you have been taught. Use the resources you have been given to get healthy i.e. “Physician, Heal Thy Self” as both a pre-condition and as a formal condition towards healing others. Those of you who have followed the teachings are now in excellent shape to deal with the current crises… those of you who followed lackadaisically or didn’t think it was important enough to double down and master the ancient and modern medicine teaching given are now in the same boat as everyone else, those who did not have education, those who don’t have a clue!
C) Practice Yoga with others! For thousands of years Yoga practice has been the core, the foundation of individual and personal health. That has not changed! Certainly there are many Yoga Teachers and Yoga schools right now that would be happy to see you supporting your health by showing up to live classes. There is no substitute for live classes with a live teacher. Everyone needs those “hands on” corrections and no way to get them on ZOOM! Also, consider MA or Martial Arts. All MA have healing benefits. Of course I am prejudiced and prefer Thai (Krabi-Krabong, Muay Thai, Muay Boran), Filipino (Kali, Arnis, Pekiti Tersia) as well as Chinese styles such as Wing Chun Gung Fu, Tai Chi and or Jeet Kune Do (Lee Jun Fan- Bruce Lee Fighting Method)… however any MA with a vigorous practice that gets the heart going, is engaging and or strengthening or toning is perfect. Find a brave teacher near you and bravely go check them out.
You may not like this! I want to say that those graduates and or former students who exclusively have chosen to re-define our SomaVeda Indigenous Traditional Medicine® Thai Yoga as exclusively “Bodywork” and or “Massage” are just now wishing you had paid more attention to the parts of the program dealing with immune system, nutrition, supplementation, detoxification and counseling… You know who you are! However, all is forgiven. Break out your notebooks, text and course materials and dig deep into your notes for solutions you can do right now and which you can use as a basis for counseling! Now is the time to build and redirect into the counseling services your qualified and authorized to do which do not require physical contact and or even being in the same room! You can counsel by phone appointment, “Skype”, FB Live, “Insta” Live, Twitter or whatever format works best for your communications with your clients.
For example, it is proven clinically and scientifically that improving your emotional/ mental health has an immediate and direct impact of your immune system function and overall health and well being. We have an amazing technology called B.E.T./ EFT and or “Energy Psychology” which EVERY SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Certified Practitioner at EVERY practice level is required to learn and know! Now is the time to put that training and secondary certification/ scope of practice to use. Who does not need professional counseling on their negative and old unresolved negative emotional issues, fears, phobia, anxiety issues right now? Those therapist who are paying attention are scheduling paid professional consultation by phone and on-line. If your not… ask your self “Why not?”
A big part of what it means to be able to help bring healing to others is to “Work on Your Self”. Use the “Tapping” to build your own stability and remove confusion and irrational fear to better enable your own clarity to make better decisions during difficult times. Yes physical distance can be helpful… however, do not isolate yourself from your own healing practices and certainly do not be one of those “Healers” who in a crises disappears or is other wise “Not Available”. If your a trained healer, minister or Practitioner Therapist now is the time to prove your metal. Put up or shut up. Help or admit defeat to your lack of discipline and either immediately start supporting those who can do the work or get out of the way. If these words seem strong or critical, then so be it. This current time and pandemic is EXACTLY what we have been training for. This is why true healers, practicing authentic, genuine medicine have been training for. I hope with all my heart that you, my current and former students choose to step up and not out!
I want to recommend for the “Self Work” part of the equation right now my book “Angels Speak, The Art and Work of Crafting Consciousness“. Take some of the “Free Time” you now have because you may not be able to “rub on people” for money and continue to educate yourself on how to work on yourself in such a way as to reconnect to being able to contribute in difficult times.
IMPORTANT ALERT: If you are, and or define your professional livelihood as a “Massage” person (legal definition as someone who rubs on the public for money… Not my definition this is how Massage profession is defined by state laws!) my heart goes out to you as the massage industry is experiencing a huge crash which is likely to continue for the future. Non-medical, non-essential touching for esthetics, relaxation and or “therapy” may even be banned by the government in the near future.
I have a solution for you… Learn SomaVeda® Thai Yoga, Ayurveda and Indigenous Traditional Natural Medicine. Yes we are the masters of Thai Traditional Physical Therapy (Thai Yoga Massage) however, in our traditional based system we teach “ALL” of the Ayurveda, Yoga Therapy and Indigenous Protocols which do NOT Require touching at all! If all you know or can do is rub of people then now is the time to re-direct!
Have confidence! SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Day Protocol works! It directly and immediately builds and improves all immune system quanta and measurable factors including those for fighting infections and in resisting all contagious issues. Not only is this a scientific fact, supported by an ever increasing body of science and scientific investigation, research trials, but, we have a mutli-decade of anecdotal history and evidence supporting the many benefits of the work we have been given.
Only “Isolate” if you are sick or suspect your sick!
Health officials recommend relying on good judgment and “social distancing” to keep ourselves safe. Yet, even as we are forced, sometimes without our consent, limit our social interactions, it’s important to remember that we are all in this together. Socially together is required for all societies to function! This realization is essential to our well-being. Throughout the long history of humankind (and of the animal kingdom, too) those who learned to collaborate and intelligently adapt have prevailed.
Ayurveda provides us with a host of ways to ramp up our immune system. Here are a few tips that may not be the first you would think of! Take a look, and please reach out to me if you have any questions.
Support your Agni: Digestive Fire! Our digestive system is the root of good health. Help keep it in good working order with plenty of whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables. Eat three nourishing meals a day. Breakfast should be warm and easy to digest, lunch should be your largest meal of the day, and dinner should consist of a light, warm, and easily assimilated dish, such as a soup, or lightly steamed veggies and rice. Stay away from processed foods, sugars, and heavy, oily foods. Dairy foods can also be problematic due to their mucus-forming properties.
Consume a small amount of Trikatu daily before lunch:Trikatu is a Sanskrit word meaning “three spices” or “three peppers.” Trikatu is an Ayurvedic blend of equal parts of the fruits of black pepper (Piper nigrum), long pepper (Piper longum), and the rhizomes of ginger (Zingiber officinale). Its many benefits include the following:
Helps to clear excess kapha or mucus from the body
Supports healthy digestive, circulatory, and respiratory functioning
Helps rekindle agni (digestive fire)
Scrapes away excess fat tissue (helpful for weight management)
Helps remove impurities and toxins (ama) from the body
Enjoy Tulsi Tea throughout your day: Tulsi, or holy basil, is a delicious form of basil that not only is a respiratory tonic, but also has antiviral qualities. It is also acts as a powerful nervine tonic that can help soothe anxiety, relieve stress, and rejuvenate the nervous system. Buy herbs here.
Get Good Sleep: Sleep is of equal importance to two other key aspects of health: proper nutrition and regular exercise. This vital trio—nutrition, exercise, and sleep—form the three pillars of health. Sleep deprivation suppresses production of the infection-fighting cytokines, antibodies, and cells that are your body’s first line of defense against the virus.
No Vaccine, and with a scarcity of Masks & Hand sanitizers, Our Own Body’s Immunity is our best defense. Ayurveda has for centuries addressed the issue of how to develop and maintain immunity. Here is a few Immunity To-Dos for your family.
with lime in warm water daily in the morning to keep the whole digestive tract healthy. Actually all Wild , Unprocessed Honey is Ayurvedic! Look for the wildest, unprocessed, local honey that you can find. Use liberally in a variety of forms from topically to orally as a natural medication. Of course you can also forget that it is a traditional medicine and just use in your tea, coffee or as a snack!
Drink warm freshly boiled water with Cinnamon, Clove, Cardamom, Ginger, Black Pepper, and or Star Anise. These spices improve digestion and are antimicrobial.
Add fresh Turmeric to your soups or prepare fresh Turmeric Pickle with each meal. Turmeric apart from its anti-inflammation properties is also very good at improving our digestion.
Chyavanaprasam (is a good source of C vitamin) – useful for deficient immune disorders, respiratory ailments (also useful in debilitating diseases where the immunity goes down drastically). Those who cannot take ghee/sugar of Chyavanaprasam may take Tiktakam Kwatham morning and evening. It is an ancient Ayurvedic herbal supplement tablet that is robustly anti-viral.
Agastya Rasayana(Leham) – useful for general debility, respiratory ailments including bronchial asthma, hiccup, cough
Dasamula Arishtam (Dasamoolaristam) after lunch and dinner- is a very powerful and potent health tonic to boost immunity as well as strengthen the lungs and the respiratory system
Guduci Rasayana: Known as Amurtha or nectar, it is a rejuvenating tonic for young and old which promotes learning, vigor, and vitality as well. Helps maintain normal liver function and supports a healthy immune system. Promotes healthy digestion.
Glycyrrhiza glabra – (Ayurvedic Herb for Lungs, Skin, Stomach) Known as LICORICE ROOT is a natural expectorant and demulcent that promotes clear, comfortable breathing. Licorice root powder supports a healthy male reproductive system and has benefits for the adrenals and kidneys. ALSO KNOWN AS MULETHI ROOT, licorice is naturally moisturizing. It lubricates the gut, soothes the mucous membranes, balances excess acidity in the stomach lining, and supports comfortable digestion.*
But the best way to develop Immunity is to cook fresh vegetables especially sourced from a local organic farm. Many local CSA’s are instituting either delivery and or “Drive Through”, call them, maybe they can sort out your weekly CSA Fresh Produce Box! *** With Coronavirus – Why risk going to the Grocery Store – when you can have fresh vegetables delivered from Farm

Infections and Infectious disease from simple topical to chronic catastrophic are always a concern. As a SomaVeda® Thai Yoga, Ayurveda and or other Natural Medicine provider you need to have concrete and reliable strategies to deal effectively with infection. This is no joke. Many medical office visits begin and end with a minor infection not adequately treated that escalates. Once inside that medical facility, emergency room etc. you are now exposed to potentially even more severe types of Hospital born infection such as MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), Legionella (Legionella pneumophila) etc. If you could handle these infections at home or for your patients and clients you would certainly save them time and money, but potentially save them from risk of death from other unnecessary contagious exposure.
