Devirusize – Our Microbiome – Our Body’s Ecosystem – We View Microbes (Bacteria, Yeast, Viruses) As Our Enemy & It’s What We’re Made Of – More So Than Human Cells! – Let’s Talk Human Immunity Science & COVID19

This is my chance to not appear as some sort of maniac who blindly bashes “medical and media science” with no regard for truth.

I am quite the contrary as this post, as well as all of the prior Devirusize posts, show. (See other recommended Devirusize poss listed below).

I do extensive research, analysis, and scrutiny of health information before formulating my conclusions. Furthermore, I follow protocols that I recommend that my followers at least investigate as I have, for some 30 years, no less!

It is important to note that those who blindly do what their doctors tell them to, and who take prescription drugs as well as vaccines without question, do little research, nor follow healthy lifestyles. So, who’s the foolish here?

Fairly methodically following alternative and natural protocols for over 30 years, I have experienced great success. My medical lab reports, including COVID19 testing, are very close to perfect, for a Black man of sixty-one years young. I can confidently say that I have defied several medical odds, without taking vaccines or medicine.

Inner Peace 2.0 – Believe Da Science – Believe Da Quotes – Believe Prophets – In Nature Inner Peace Is Priceless – U Don’t Have To Believe Me

In Inner Peace Part Two, in this follow-up to yesterday’s post, I provide limited personal commentary.  The focus here is on what has been said about Inner Peace by those in Faith & Science. 

I have said what I had to say and tried my best to describe the experience.  In this post, I focus on what Scientists, Doctors, Prophets, and Spiritual Leaders have said about Inner Peace. 

I have found that achieving it works best when in nature.  They seem to agree.  Therefore, I included information on tools in nature that complement achieving inner peace and healing too.  I also added handpicked quotes on Inner Peace the resonate with me.  Continue reading “Inner Peace 2.0 – Believe Da Science – Believe Da Quotes – Believe Prophets – In Nature Inner Peace Is Priceless – U Don’t Have To Believe Me”

Guest Blogger – Harry Cline – New Caregiver – The Best Advice for Seniors Considering Their Lifestyle Options

For the first-time caregiver, taking care of a loved one can be overwhelming so there is a bit of responsibility for seniors to plan for the day when they may need someone to care for them.  But they must also plan for having a sustainable lifestyle that makes their later years their finer years.

Though the experience of caregiving can get grueling, if plans are not in place, seasoned caregivers will tell you, with a little guidance, it can also be one of the most fulfilling experiences life has to offer.

Harry Cline has compiled some of the internet’s best resources to give you a head start on your caregiver’s journey by preparing seniors to someday be cared for by another while remaining comfortable until that time comes.


Harry Cline, of New Caregiver, submitted this post for seniors to select their ‘Senior Lifestyle Options’.  I appreciate him.  Thanks, Harry!

I have taken the audacity to interject in Harry’s content that senior lifestyle preparation is the precursor to senior caregiving.  In retrospect, I would advise seniors to plan their lives and lifestyle with this inevitability in mind. 

…Someone may have to care for you later in your life.  Be realistic about it.  Kevy


As having served as a sole caregiver for my mother as she approached 100 years old, I will not glamourize the journey of caregiving for an elder, especially when coming from a large family, and having a mother who made no concrete plans for her care.  It was a topic that she and the family avoided.

 Fortunately, my experience ended as one of the most profound in my life. 

But glamour came only after my work was done, and God took over.  Now, I smile every day that I think of my mother, knowing that I gave all that I could when she needed me, as she did when I was a child, and I needed her. 

I did not realize until years later, that it would be “the most fulfilling experiences life has to offer.”

But still, I must admit that it would have been a lot easier if she had laid out her wishes and plans as though that day would come because it did. Continue reading “Guest Blogger – Harry Cline – New Caregiver – The Best Advice for Seniors Considering Their Lifestyle Options”

SHARE – This Post Is A Big Deal! – I Don’t Plan To Get The COVID19 Vaccine! – Being Forced To Will Mess With My Freedom & More Importantly – My Spirit – THIS POST TELLS YOU MY ALTERNATIVES

I could not wait to get this message out, and therefore am publishing it raw, with limited supporting information.

But I promise to send a subsequent post, under the DEVIRUSIZE series, that will explain what I have thoroughly research, questioned, and personally experienced in managing my health successfully for over 30 years, holistically, and through True Faith In God.

This post will be very raw and direct. Some may find that I am preaching. I am far from a preacher, but I do believe that I possess equivalent passion.

I do not mean to hate on anyone who chooses or has chosen to get vaccinated. You probably take many prescription drugs, and likely have had many vaccines. That is your right to, and I respect that.

But don’t hate on me for not choosing to get vaccinated. Don’t worry about me perhaps spreading coronavirus. You should have nothing to worry about. You’ve been vaccinated.

But as for me, I have not been vaccinated in my entire adult life, and my health is better than those that I know who have.


Apprehension of vaccinations and prescription drugs has done something unexpected to me.

  • It has elevated my faith in God and my desire to strive towards, that which I will never fully attain but will never stop trying to, Spiritual Perfection.
  • It has left me with a tremendous responsibility as well. I must strive to do everything as naturally (close to God’s paradise) as I can in terms of diet, lifestyle, exercise, connecting with nature, and stress management to show to God that I’ve honestly done my part to manage my own wellbeing, before sporadically running to man, whose motivator may be profit.

SHARE – 15 Reasons Why No COVID19 Vaccine For This Black Man! – Vaccines Are For Those Who Regularly Take Vaccines & Prescription Drugs Just Because They’re Told To

It has taken me over one month to prepare this post on the COVID19 vaccine. It is extensive and required a great deal of research. Many may not read it. That’s okay. I am not trying to reach puppets or androids. I am trying to reach those who take personal ownership of their own well-being, and who don’t follow everything that they are told to do.

This post is not intended to change anyone’s mind or to convert them. It simply provides facts, additional information, and of course, my opinion, on which you should solidify your decision if they are into that. Kevy


We’ve gotten so touchy and evangelistic about everything these days, racial issues, healthcare, taxes, global warming, and now it’s the COVID19 vaccine.

I appreciate that everyone has a right to have their own opinion about the vaccine. Whether they are taking it or not doesn’t bother me. But some people just get out right upset with you, if like myself, have decided that you’re just not taking it.

I haven’t taken the flu, pneumonia, measles, shingles, or none of those vaccines. The last vaccines I remember taking were when I was anywhere from 5 to 8 years old, and I’m standing strong. Those who take them regularly as adults often have poorer health than I do.

The Center For Disease Control (CDC) recommends 13 different vaccines for adults. I have taken none of these as an adult.

Recommended Vaccines by Age – Read More

I will never say never. I never say never about anything in life, so I can’t never say I take the vaccine. But it’s not anything that I am considering anytime soon. I’ve done my research and I’ve provided a list of reasons why I’m not rushing to take the COVID19 vaccine. Maybe you should consider these things as well, especially if you fit into my demographic.

Deciding not to take the vaccine wasn’t a difficult decision. I arrived at this decision rather easily, in spite of being exposed to COVID19, testing positive, then subsequently testing negative 3 times.

I have several reasons and I’m sure that further research will probably give more reasons why taking the COVID19 vaccine is not right for me, at this time.

I respect those who choose to take the vaccine as soon as it becomes available to them. That is their choice and right, such as mine. I am not trying to convince anyone of anything with regard to the vaccine, except for one thing.

This one thing I encourage everyone to do on every decision, research. Do not make your decisions purely based on fear, media, hearsay, or even religion. After doing your due diligence, then follow your heart, the part of us all where God’s spirit resides. My heart tells me not now for the COVID19 vaccine.

DEVIRUSIZE – Janet, STOP! – Give Me A Beet! – Another Mashup Post – …My Mind Goes In All Directions Simultaneously Sometimes

Here I go again. This post is a mashup.


Those who follow my blog, Seasons As Our Teacher (KevyMichaels.Blog), know that I love to do mashups of totally unrelated topics. In this post, I mashup Janet Jackson and Beats, I mean Beets. Actually, I do a mashup of Janet with the veggie Beets, put to Beats contained in one of her most popular songs. The post emphasizes the health benefits of Beets in a catchy video that I created with help from other content creators. As a garnish, on the blog, I added a Janet photo slideshow, health beet recipes, including my mother’s simple New Orleans Beet Salad, and two of my favorite Janet song videos. Enjoy. Kevy

Devirusize – In This Corner, Juicing, In the Other, Smoothies – And the Champ Is?

Photo – Tuong -Dat – Unsplash
Photo – Nathan Dumlao Unsplash

I have been juicing and blending fruit and vegetables for at least 15 years now.  I do both actively, but prefer juicing.  I like to drink freshly prepared juices especially when I am fighting a minor illness or when detoxing, which is always since our environment and food supply is full of toxins.  My juicing and smoothie regiment is a critical aspect of my Devirusizing protocol.  But drinking freshly prepared juices is not equal to drinking smoothies.  One is clearly better than the other.  In this post, I will explain the differences as I see it, and have researched it.

When I worked at Whole Food Markets, I regularly asked customers, who were “strictly organic”, to consider a regiment for detoxing, daily, monthly, and quarterly.  Many who go “strictly organic” do not detox, seeming to imply that being “strictly organic” alleviates this need.  This is an illusion, in my opinion.

It is much wiser to eat organic when it matters.  Refer to the 2020 Dirty Dozen & Clean 15 Lists to determine when it matters.  On this list released each spring, the Environmental Working Group (also known as the EWG) publishes a list of fruits and vegetables that experts at the nonprofit say contain elevated levels of pesticides that may be concerning. Now known as the Dirty Dozen list to health experts and in-the-know shoppers, the list has long called conventional farming methods into question, especially as the EWG also publishes a competing list called the Clean Fifteen that highlights produce containing little to no pesticides when grown conventionally.

It is better to eat organic when it matters, and wiser to not assume that there is no need to detox periodically.  For in spite of going organic, we must accept that we are still living in a toxic world on many levels.  We should include detoxing in our health practices.  It is much wiser to complement healthy food choices, with detoxing.  Juicing (and drinking plenty of distilled water) is a great practice for detoxing.  This is a smarter way to Devirusize.

I also meet many people who sing the praises of juicing or blending (smoothies).  Most people choose one over the other.  Most that I’ve met, prefer smoothies over juices.  They state obvious pros for smoothies, and cons for juicing, but leave out many pertinent facts when making this comparison.  This is consistent with how most people practice being “healthy”, without pertinent facts.

I liken drinking fresh juices to drinking medicine, because it goes into the bloodstream within minutes, not requiring much digestion.  Think about drinking a cocktail.  After a few minutes, you feel it, because the alcohol goes into your bloodstream rather quickly. The same happens with juices, but not with smoothies. Continue reading “Devirusize – In This Corner, Juicing, In the Other, Smoothies – And the Champ Is?”

Devirusize – Take Off Your Shoes! – You Should Hit The Ground After Reading This Post! – It Will Give U Access To Calm, Healing & Love – When U Need It Most – Practice Grounding & Earthing

Grounding

I am back with a new post and this is a really important one.

This represents a new element to the Devirusize protocol.  “Devirusize” is a word I that invented in order categorize my suggestions for making your body optimally healthy.  On my blog, search the word “Devirusize” to find other related posts.

This element of optimal wellness is on Earthing or Grounding.  I am unsure, but I would imagine that Earthing’s distinction is that in addition to grounding, it includes hugging trees, sitting, or standing in water, or on rocks.  Grounding involves intimate contact with the ground, preferably while barefoot.

It has taken me quite some time to pull this post together because, as with all my posts, I include a lot of content.  And I research and dig into each subject, reviewing all of the included videos.  This process is not just a labor of love, because I become well-versed in many areas of living from doing so.

This grounding thing is amazing!  I want everybody to look into!  It doesn’t cost you anything and if you really get into it, even if you spend money on devices, you’ll find that it’s not extremely expensive compared to the benefit that you get from grounding.

First of all, I ground all the time.  I’ll do it today.  I am doing it frequently because I am expecting Colorado’s winter.  Believe it or not, it snowed here about two weeks ago.  Three days later, it was 85°.

This the post includes me recording myself while grounding, just to give you an idea of how I feel when I am grounding.  …To let you see what I am seeing.  In addition to my own video, I include other videos on grounding from experts, with supporting scientific evidence.  In fact, there’s US government research that says grounding helps with inflammation and cancer and all sorts of diseases and dis-ease.  It is unbelievable that enough people don’t know about grounding and practice it regularly!

Share – Revolution 2020 – Ingredients For A Savory Pot of Rebellion Gumbo – It Will End Up As An Economic Revolution Though It May Not Start That Way – 10 Key Ingredients For Today’s Boiling Pot Revolution

I am reposting this in today’s more intense racial and political climate.  Perhaps with the coronavirus lockdowns, more people will view and understand this message.  

We are now in the revolution, whether you accept it or not.  It includes all of the usual ingredients but mixed to a different recipe.

Though I believe that the initial action will require taking matters to the streets, ultimately, if we do things right, we can make this an economic revolution.  This is what it must become. 

We can stop supporting any entity that supports racism, directly and covertly.

I believe that our power in dollars is greater than our power in voting.  Everyone understands money:  Nonprofits, Conservatives, The Government, Blacks, Liberal Whites, etc.  …Especially those who flaunt compassion and Jesus.

We will have to take matters to the streets as I have, and like others, namely, Millenials are doing.  But, if we pull this off correctly, the revolution will evolve into an economic war.

We must stop giving money to those entities that oppress or distort being “for the cause of Blacks”.


I believe that a Trump win will really ignite real revolution.  This will catapult real change.

I have decided to not vote at all, or to vote for The Lobster to keep things moving and allow history  to repeat itself again, but much more vibrantly.

I will explain why voting for The Lobster will trigger really change, in a messy, but quicker way, than what Democrats have been doing ineffectively for over 100 years.

Kevy.


I consider myself to be rather introspective. I spend a great of time analyzing life and Life Seasons daily. I’m constantly searching for a deeper meaning. Sometimes it gets me in trouble, particularly when helping people, thinking that my service is a calling when it ends up becoming a curse.

Obviously, as an African American, I have been doing a lot of self-soul-searching and searching the soul of America, and the world. …The Joe Biden way. I’ve examined myself, friends, family strangers, and “leaders” to draw my own conclusions. I also do quite a bit of research to support my conclusions. I compliment my understanding with my spirituality, fortified through regular prayer and meditation. It is the best that I can do. I may still not always obtain the truth, but at least I don’t take any dish served to me without interrogation.

In this post, I thoughtfully examine why we are in Revolution 2020, right now. I’ll get all introspective with it too.

I have listed all of the ingredients that I believe contribute to today’s outrage. Some of my findings are strictly opinionated. But most are supported by fact and commonly accepted morals and beliefs. Common sense enters the room too in this evaluation.

I find that the fixings that created such an unprecedented outrage around the world were the perfect components for creating the toxic soup in which we now boil.

The New Orleans in me led me to see this recipe for Revolution 2020 as a metaphor for the ingredients that go into the perfect pot of New Orleans Creole gumbo. I included a reliable recipe at the end of this post. Remember, I am a New Orleans River Rat. I grew up 2 blocks from the river Tchoupitoulas Street

Like gumbo, adding only the right ingredients, letting them stew for hours, makes it pop.

America and the rest of the world have been stewing too, in a boiling pot of disparity, racism, and disregard for humanity. Adding George Floyd’s killing to the pot of other ingredients is now making this rebellion gumbo boil over.

If U Cared For UR Mother & Now She Is Gone – U Will Like This Post – If U Neglected Her or Conspired To – Go To Hell!

I finished this poem this morning while sitting on the grass in a park, reflecting.  I was Grounding in multiple ways.

I translated the poem in various languages based on website views, by country.   I used Google Translate to convert it from English.  Please let me know if the translation is correct, in any language.

I love my mother very much, in any language.

I wrote the poem in this post on my smartphone so there isn’t much glitz and glamor to offer. 


I don’t expect those who were not willing to be caregivers for their mother to understand why 6 years after my mother transcended, I continue to worship her like she is still here. 

I certainly don’t expect my fake-faithful siblings, family members, and New Orleans’ Metro non-profit deviously-operated senior agencies to appreciate this post.  This is not for them.  But, there is a slight possibility that one or two may be reflective on their deeds and surrender their sins against their mother (or someone else’s) to God.

They have the freedom to not receive these messages by asking me to not send them my post, or they can just ignore them.  Lately, they’ve said nothing and believe in their imaginary innocence. …for six years now.


This post is for those who really love their mothers, who cared for them in their final days, as I did with honor.  This is for those same beautiful children of God who believe that their mother is still with them, protecting and watching over them.


As for the other losers, who neglected their mother when she was near death, for greed, power, or resentment, or those who were complicit in the sabotage of a frail mother’s well-being, may you enjoy your day in hell.  You will meet a lot of your relatives and friends there.   

I am sure that my siblings, family members, and New Orleans agencies that participated in the Terror Against The Caregiver (Me or You) are destined for hell, if not already there on Earth.


I cannot see or talk directly to my mother today.  For that, I have no regrets.  She’s left me with a lot of fond memories.  I can feel her spirit in me, and around me. 

I believe that only those who have shown God’s love to their mothers, when they were frail and dying, get to gain such access to their spirit when they become Guardian Angels, as my mother did.  She was born on October 2, 1918, the day of the Feast of the Guardian Angels day


Thanks, Lil Eunice for granting me access to your spirit.  Thanks for your guidance and protection.  Thanks, God for allowing me to access you, through my dear Lil Eunice!


As for the ungodly ones, in my family circle, and outside of it, I hope it pains you, not having such access, but instead, having access to the pain you caused her before she ascended to heaven. 

I am not being cruel.  Everyone must pay someday for their deeds, I included. 

They too, however, do have access to God, but only in Truth & Surrender to his Truth.  May they open that door, I pray.

…May they change their wicked ways.  Ironically many of my siblings are mothers.  With regard to those for whom this post resonates, I am sure that your caregiving antagonizers are mothers too.  In fact, nearly all of my only siblings that remain on Earth today are mothers.  They all had a mother, a beautifully spiritual and strong one.   Their day of reckoning shall come. 

There is nothing that I must do to facilitate their future or present crisis moment.  God has got that covered.  I only need to remain Truthful and Faithful.  That I am.   Continue reading “If U Cared For UR Mother & Now She Is Gone – U Will Like This Post – If U Neglected Her or Conspired To – Go To Hell!”

U Receive Blood Lab Reports On The Regular But Don’t Know What Da Hell They Mean – 5 Ways To Better Understand & Prepare For Blood Lab Reports

In this post, as with every post, I have done research in advance, in this case, on blood labs and how to interpret the results. I have also provided recommendations, supported by the medical community, and ones based on my personal experience. You should complement this information with your own experiences and research.

With today’s increasing concerns about health, I recommend that you read this detailed post, and when you are ready, I suggest that you review your last blood lab reports again to see if you understand them better. If not, you should at least be well-equipped to ask your doctors intelligent questions.


I am not a doctor, but I should not have to be to understand my own blood lab reports. They are given to me by my doctor, to assess my health status. But had I not done the research; I would not understand how to properly interpret the reports.

In my experiences, only by exception are doctors willing to spend extra time with me to explain the full report. Also, often I have to make a follow-up appointment just to speak with the doctor in detail about my blood test results, and that’s if they are willing to do so.

Years ago, as part of my ‘Urban-Holistic-Rasta-Metaphysics’ approach to health, I felt that it was my responsibility to understand the reports, how seriously to take its results, and what things to do to ensure accurate tests in the future.

Too often the results were given to me as vital health information but often were never explained. I did not know what the various measurements meant, beyond the information I received about those numbers which were outside of ‘normal ranges’. Hell, they didn’t really explain what ‘normal ranges’ meant.

We are not adequately advised on how to prepare for our blood test to ensure that the results are not skewed by our lifestyle and habits days or hours prior to taking the tests. We are told to fast for lipid and glucose tests but are often unadvised on other factors that can skew blood results or cause false positives.

SHARE – To Know More About African American Culture Start By Getting Jazzy – It Is Love Supreme! – One Step From Meditative New Age Music – Healthy Too!

This post is another mashup. The post is primarily about Jazz music.

I am sharing’s its history and variations as a way for you to become better acquainted with a major aspect of African American culture. It is a mashup because I have additional footage and photos of mural art to share and decided to create content using the images set to various styles of Jazz music. I also wanted to share poems that I wrote, as well as, poems from other poets, adding this all of this to jazz music of various tempos in a visually-enticing video.

As a result, this post is a mashup of Jazz Music, Mural Art & Poetry (by me and other poems from around the world). Not sure, but let’s see how this goes for you. Kevy

Before I go any further, I want to remind you that I am not immediately knowledgeable, off the top of my head, on all the topics on which I write.

I am inspired by life events, observations, relationships, family scenarios, web surfing, and National Public Radio (NPR) to create fresh content. In a sense, I provide a service with my posts. I perform the research, give my opinion, and provide you with references to do further research. You are always invited to respond and even share an entire post.


Though I am African American, and though I appreciate jazz music, I did not know as much about its history, variations, or health benefits until I did the research for this post. I learn something new with every post.

I grew up surrounded by jazz music in New Orleans as a child. My cousin was a DJ at a New Orleans jazz radio station WWOZ. I highly recommend that you download the app for 24 hours a day of free jazz music.

News On Corona Or The So-Called Riots – Will Get U ‘Stuck On Stupid’ – Corona Isn’t Affecting That Many – Protests Are A Love Fest – 9 Inspiring Things I Observed At The Revolution That Media Hides

News Is Misleading Many

The news media can be deceptive, in general.  It has been for a long time and will continue, given its eternal conflict between truth, and beholding to advertisers and government regulations.

They are not thoroughly presenting the protest rallies as they are actually occurring.  They are demonizing protesters at worse, or are not revealing how united and caring participants are, at the very least.

Rodney King Weaved In With BLM Violent Protests And Looting Rock Cities On The West Coast TODAY_Moment
Photo NBC News – Rodney King Footage Weaved In With BLM ent Protests

Protesters are unlike they are being perceived by the media, The Lobster’s administration, and those who subscribe to their stories, without doing any investigation.  For example,  I’ve attended over 10 protest rallies in the past two weeks.  I shed tears of joy and was inspired every time I saw how warm, passionate, creative, and ingenious the mainly Millennial protesters are.

The same is being done with the coronavirus.  I am not implying that COVID19 is not dangerous.  It is certainly more dangerous to some, more than others.  That says more about those individuals’ health status and lifestyle more than it says about the danger of the virus itself.

But being exposed to the coronavirus is usually not fatal, though.  Continue reading “News On Corona Or The So-Called Riots – Will Get U ‘Stuck On Stupid’ – Corona Isn’t Affecting That Many – Protests Are A Love Fest – 9 Inspiring Things I Observed At The Revolution That Media Hides”

Oils have gotten a bomb rap from misinformation. Most of the misinformation is intended to boost corporate profits, product unnatural shelf life, and to sustain mass processed food production.

I hope to dispel rumors and urban legends about oils, the first of which is that all oils that we consume are bad. All oils or fats are not bad. We must consume certain in our diet because the body cannot produce them.

I am eager to also dispel that canola oil is not good. It’s trash for the body, due to all the techniques and chemicals used to refine it. Lard is better than canola, of course, when used modestly.

Corona We Know Whatz Bad – So Whatz Good? – The Positive Side Of The Coronavirus – There’s Always Something Good

I have come to learn that nothing is totally bad in life.  This belief even applies to the Coronavirus.  I will show you its positive sides in a list of good things that will ultimately result from us enduring through this pandemic. 

We tend to see only the negative aspects of challenges because that is what we are dealing with in the present moment.  We have become accustomed not to expect the positive aspect, though it is inevitable.  We don’t see anything positive because we do not look beyond the surface.

But based on my life experiences, often my worse trials and challenges resulted in unforeseen good, which was ultimately realized many years later. 

  • Being very ill made me more conscious about taking better care of my health and lifestyle.
  • Being an insecure people-pleaser for years, through disappointment and pain, lead me to confidence, better self-worth, and self-love.
  • Losing nearly all of my material possessions, becoming bankrupt to care for my elderly mother, humbled me. Now I need less, have less, and am happier.

Experiences like these are what changed how I evaluate trials.  I am constantly looking for the good in bad or good situations.

“Any kind of crisis can be good. It wakes you up.” – Ryan Reynolds


God really is good, all the time. 

If you look for a silver lining in every situation, it will be there.  I believe that exemplifies the belief that God’s understanding is mightier than ours.  The infinity of God’s understanding goes far beyond whatever negative emotions that we may experience at the time.

“Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.” – Psalm 147:5 – NKJV

We often focus on what we experience in the present never realizing that present pain ultimately leads to reward, discernment, and joy someday in the future.  Today’s rain will lead to blooming flowers.

De-Virusize With Water – Who Would A Thunk Dat Water Heals – De-Virusize Immunity With God’s Healing Waters

The Devirusize posts are meant to reduce your chances of becoming ill from viruses and other pathogens.

In the last, and first post, I presented the importance of the Sun, and how it affects your health and immunity. The Sun can be a double-edged sword. It offers magnificent health benefits but can damage your health if we are not safe and prudent, while in the sun.

In this post, the second of the Devirusize series, I present the importance of water consumption, relative to your health. Everyone knows that drinking water benefits their health. Even I was surprised at all of the health benefits of water. Most of them, I knew about, but some I did not.

As with the Sun, too much water can harm you. I have had an experience, while caring for my elderly mother, with the harmful effects of drinking too much water. But this threat is not as likely or severe as harm from getting too much Sun.

I have written other posts on the health benefits of water. They are listed at the bottom of this post. I used very little material from those articles so that I would find updated information and research.

This post, along with the two prior ones will keep you busy for a while. It covers a lot of ground, therefore I leaned towards providing information in bullets. You may click on the links for greater details contained in research studies, articles, and videos. Kevy

“De-virusize” Using Da Lightbulb In The Sky – The Sun, Son! – Devirusize UR Health With Da Sun!

Devirusize Urself With Da Sun

In the first post of this series, I will discuss one aspect of Devirusizing, properly using the sun.

I spend time in the sun as much as I can.  Colorado has about 360 Days of sun each year, even when it snows.  After preparing this intensely researched post, I am much more educated about the sun.

The new information I gained was quite enlightening and will result in me adjusting my habits, as I hope will be the case for you.  You may just learn sumthin.

Devirusize – A New Word I Created – Protect Urself From Viruses

Over the past few days, my mind has been marinating on a catchy way to present holistic health protocols that I have found to be very successful, after over 30 years of personal practice.  I knew that the first one would be on The Sun since it has been really sunny here in Colorado.  Higher altitudes receive more intense sunlight.

The reason that it has been a challenge to come up with an angle is that holistic healing involves many facets and perspectives, and therefore has a lot of areas to cover.

I do not want to overwhelm those who may be interested in learning more with too much, even though it will still be too much.  I knew that I had to present it in pieces, though. 

At first, I had ideas like The Ten Commandments of Health, The Holistic Health Bible, Holistic Health Verses & Scriptures.  I then thought, ahh, no, I may offend even more people.

So, I invented a new word. Continue reading “Devirusize – A New Word I Created – Protect Urself From Viruses”

Black People Get Healthy! – U Created That Back-Porch-Booty, Front-Porch-Belly & UR Poor Health –Take Responsibility – From UR Brother Kevy!

This is not a fat-shaming post. Let’s make that clear.

I am not opposed to big booties. Some are nice and shapely, like onion or bubble butts. These are the way God made them. Some, however, are big and out of shape from not getting exercise and not eating properly. Some folks don’t even try to exercise, as much as they consume. These are the ones I wish to reach with this post. I am not shaming, though.

As for ‘front-porch-bellies’, that may be a different story.

Our digestive system is the foundation of our immune system, with the gut playing the largest role. Excessive weight causes inflammation adversely affects immune cells, and can even impair cognition. Having a big belly may be a sign of more significant health issues.
“A huge proportion of your immune system is actually in your GI tract,” says Dan Peterson, assistant professor of pathology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.’ – John Hopkins Medical Research

Everyone can benefit from this post. It is especially aimed at Black people. But it would be nice for all people to understand what I have to say about Health & Lifestyle.

This post is also a scolding of my peeps. But it is a scolding based in love. It’s like a father chastising his son for misbehaving. I want the best for you but have to ‘lay down the law’ to let you know that I’m serious, but I do care.

Black people (and all people, of course) with unhealthy lifestyles lets be real with each other, okay?

You are a large part of the problem when it comes to the status of your health and the health of your community! I can say this. I am an African American man. That gives me street creds.

You are a large part of the blame for the disproportional impact of the Coronavirus on the African American community.

Before Coronavirus many of you were already unhealthy. Admit it.

Don’t play with me.

SHARE – Kevy’s Back – He’s Been Hanging With Corona Though – Now He’s Separating Wheat From Tares

As you get older, you find that often the wheat, disentangling itself from the chaff, comes out to meet you. – Gwendolyn Brooks


Friends, I am finally returning to Life Seasons As A Teacher, more passionate than ever! I have been on Life’s Road and have become more discerned, strengthened, and corrected. I have been tried many times, but never convicted. I have many stories to share in future posts.

But I must first present content on the matter at hand, Corona.

I am returning with an enemy whom I befriended for a bit. Her name is Corona. She’s left me now, stronger than I was before she came into my life. Corona had to move on from me. She is no longer amused with me and knew that there is a world of more suitable and submissive mates for her. I am a strong man. Maybe that’s why she left me.

I no longer wish Corona in my life, but I appreciate all that she revealed to me about me, and about ‘people’. …about our world. Her most powerful skill is in her ability to separate the wheat from the tares.

I will be sharing with you, what Corona revealed to me in the next several posts.

Not Much Of A Drinker But I’m Enamored For Hours In This One Bar – The Buddha Bar’s Zen Chill Music

Music has always been a major influence in my life, even as a child. 

When I was not much older than 6 or 7 years old, I used to listen to the Motown Sound.  My sister’s husband was a deejay, on the most popular black AM radio station in New Orleans, WYLD, and he’d bring free copies of virtually every 45 that was released.  Since the Motown Sound was most popular, we ended up having nearly every song released.

Along with my brothers and sisters, we would pantomime performances of the Temptations, the Four Tops, and the Supremes to name a few.  I still remember the words to songs that were released when I was a young child.

Back then, my sister Annette, and my brother Ulysses had the strangest music tastes, considering that they were fairly young and products of the ghetto.  My sister would have days where she would play Johnny Mathis albums it seems for the whole day.  Her go-to song was Chances Are.  

My brother was in love with Nancy Wilson.  He would do pretty much the same, often playing Guess Who I Saw TodayMusic was so integral in our ghetto lives that we embraced everyone’s choices, and even me, at a very young age, would eventually learn to appreciate Johnny Mathis and Nancy Wilson.

Perfect old record player cabinet For 1960s Mid Century Modern Stereo Console SYLVANIA RecordMy family, as most black families did back then, had two very elegant phonograph consoles, build with craftmanship into very nice solid wood cabinets that looked like an elegant piece of furniture.  It served as the foundation of our modest entertainment endeavors.  When the top was closed, and my mother placed a lace dolly and a vase of plastic flowers on top, and polish it with that weird-smelling furniture oil.  One would never know that it was a record player until it was opened, and guest would say, ‘Oh I didn’t realize that was a record player.’  For a moment, we would feel white-privileged.  It was a big bulky piece of furniture that only housed two speakers, a turntable, and storage area for 45s and LPs, but it was nearly the center of our lives back then.

gpo-bermuda_05_bIn addition, either I or my sisters would get a portable record player for Christmas.  …Sort of the Easy Bake Over of record players, allowing us to listen to music in our rooms upstairs.  It did not have a big sound because the speakers were transistor-radio-sized, but we enjoyed listening to the latest music just the same.  Upstairs we would sing, dance and listen in private, well almost.

Music is also a significant aspect of New Orleans’ culture.  It’s about ‘what-n-what’ with our food.  New Orleanians hold deep pride in both.  We have our own style of music, and that tradition continues today with new styles like New Orleans bounce music.  I’m not that crazy about New Orleans bounce music.  But our most popular music back then was New Orleans blues, soul, jazz, Mardi Gras, and second line music.

SHARE! – Flipping The Script on Conventional Healing – Not Abandoning It – Just Complementing It With Truth

I have a rather difficult time explaining holistic healing to friends and people I meet. 

“When I stand before thee at the day’s end, thou shalt see my scars and know that I had my wounds and also my healing.” ― Rabindranath Tagore


Those who follow conventional medicine are always looking for a cure for this or that.  When in actuality they are relieving a symptom, never addressing the underlining problem, and as a result, may actually be causing your body additional harm.

Conventional medicine focuses on symptoms, which is the smallest part of the equation.  Symptoms could also be related to diet, nutrition, stress, emotions, oneness, and toxins, including people, but conventional medicine doesn’t seem to give these aspects of illness much attention.

Conventional medicine does not consider God’s influence either, and how strongly we believe.  It does not consider miracles or the magical, but many unexplained miracles occur.  Ironically, doctors are aware of things that they just can’t explain, but may not talk about such exceptional cases.  I am here to tell you conclusively that such medical exceptions do exist.  I am one of them.

Conventional medicine does not look at the “whole” picture, body, mind, and spirit.

It is unfortunate because there are very promising aspects of conventional medicine, which are complementary to natural healing.  For example, in trauma care, there isn’t a tea, vitamin, plant, or guided meditation that will relieve and heal, say a gun wound, a broken limb, or cardiovascular trauma caused by careless living.

Conventional medicine uses the best diagnostic tools.  I rely on blood lab work, MRIs, x-rays, urine, and stool tests, when they are necessary.  But relying on these investigative protocols does not mean that I will always follow the treatment.  Continue reading “SHARE! – Flipping The Script on Conventional Healing – Not Abandoning It – Just Complementing It With Truth”

Don’t Cha Know About Kombucha – Here Is The 411 On Kombuchamacallit?

I used to drink Kombucha every day, when I could afford to.  It can get very expensive, when you buy it in a store.  I have fermented veggies for probiotics, but I have never taken on making my own Kombucha.  It is quite involved and can be a bit of a nuance, so I’ve heard. 

I have a friend in Atlanta, whose husband grew Kombucha back in the 1990’s.  He did it quite well, but could not stop, leading to tension in the house.

He had it growing everywhere, specifically in every closet.  He was fanatical about Kombucha.  Many years later, I now know why.

I follow so many different health regiments, all requiring time, preparation, and coordination, therefore I don’t have the bandwidth to take on making my own Komboucha.  Maybe you do.  I provide a recipe in the links below.


“Kombucha is a unique, fermented tea that has Kombuchabeen used for millennia to lower blood pressure, improve digestion, and boost the immune system. It is alkaline-forming, simple to brew, and extremely inexpensive.” – Ty Bollinger – The Truth About Cancer

Based on a most reputable source, Ty Bollinger, of The Truth About Cancer website, here is the history and the benefits that he emphasizes in his post.

  • Kombucha has been used for thousands of years dating back to the Tsin-Dynasty in 221 B.C. – a Chinese Empire – where they called it “the remedy for immortality.” It was later brought to Japan by Dr. Kombu to treat the Japanese emperor, Inkyo, for digestive problems.
  • Numerous scientific studies have shown that kombucha tea helps populate the intestines with probiotics (beneficial bacteria), enhances the immune system, fights off deadly pathogens and protects vital organs.
  • A 2011 study published in the journal “Pathophysiology” found that kombucha protects liver cells, while another study from the June 2012 issue of Food Science and Technology asserts that kombucha “has prophylactic and therapeutic properties” including anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal effects.

Here are the combined benefits of Komboucha, from very reputable and researched sources, including from my personal experience.  Continue reading “Don’t Cha Know About Kombucha – Here Is The 411 On Kombuchamacallit?”

Get UR Laugh On – Become Healthier & Balanced – Let’s Laugh Together

Laughter is Critical to Healing

I am not as much into health, as I am into healing. 

I see the difference in the former aiming to address a specific ailment, whereas the latter aims to immerse you in healing energy, creating an environment that repels illness, in any form it may appear.  Healing enfolds me in an energy of health.

Healing goes much deeper than being healthy.  Healing requires balance and vibrational, physical, spiritual, emotional, and nutritional connectivity, just to list a few of its many aspects.

In my healing strategy both balance, and vibrational connection are given the highest priority.

With regard to balance in resting, I do not work too diligently, without attentively ensuring that I get proper rest.  I try to rest at least 8 hours a day.    I consciously work to balance the two.

The same applies to eating healthy, juicing, fermenting, consumption of smoothies, and herbal and root helpful foods, I must balance this lifestyle practice too.  I will never place myself in a ‘food prison’ and expect healing.  I allow myself to deviate from time to time, and don’t beat up on myself for being human.

I learned the importance of balance namely through working with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) doctors and acupuncturists.  I’ve been seeing TCM practitioners for over 20 years now.  I had acupuncture just this week.

The practice of TCM believes in staying in harmony with nature.  The practice believes in seasons, as well, not just in the atmosphere, but in our body, spirit, and emotions.  I strongly believe in seasons and its impact on my life.  I’ve written about seasons on several occasions.

“According to the teachings of Chinese Medicine, an important principle to leading a healthy life is that of balance.  Living a life of balance affords us longevity. One of the ways of achieving balance is by mirroring the energy of the seasons. Everything in nature is composed of yin and yang energy.”  – Living Life in Balance with Chinese Medicine by Syd Acu | Apr 9, 2013 | Durango Chinese Medicine, Durango Colorado Acupuncture


The last few posts touched painful memories. 

It was also painful to revisit my mistakes and flaws.  But, I was courageous in that I did, for the benefit of others, and to maintain my integrity.  After I published the posts on the “Mess Age”, I felt invigorated, and relieved.

After, a day or so, that feeling wore off, and I started feeling a bit melancholy.

My internal balance calibrator signaled that I had not had a good laugh and needed a few laughs to remain in the realm of healing.  Continue reading “Get UR Laugh On – Become Healthier & Balanced – Let’s Laugh Together”

Benefits Of The Lightbulb In The Sky – Don’t Throw Shade – Let It Shine

The Sun Is Good For You & All Living Things

I have always known that the sun is good for me.

Living in New Orleans, as I child, I don’t remember my mother ever warning me to stay out of the sun, maybe drink water, and don’t overheat.

Nor, did she put sunscreen all over my body, as mothers do today.

Interestingly, there wasn’t much talk about skin cancer, or the sun causing it, in those days.

I never believed the hype being propagated about the sun for one simple fact. The sun sustains all life. We would not be able to survive without the sun. Life would not have begun had the sun not penetrated through the oceans, turning organisms to plants and marine life, and so on.

In the past, the sun was regarded as a divine power, and was equated to God.

Nowadays, the sun seems to be regarded as our enemy. I, however, still believe that the sun is divine. I hope that I can convince you, if you’re not already convinced.


Please read our medical disclaimer – Not all alternative treatments work for those who do not believe that they will.


I make it a point to get sunlight every day.

I usually take a stroll through Washington Park, in Denver, Colorado, USA, to take in the sun, the oxygen from trees, and the beauty of the flowers in the colonial gardens.

wash park

While walking, I pray, and usually stop to sit under a tree to meditate, then to get writing inspirations. Trees inspire me. I’ve written several poems on trees.

Soaking in the sun is a very creative, healing, and spiritual experience for me. After taking these excursions, I instantly feel rejuvenated in body, mind, and spirit. When I get home and look in the mirror, my skin glows in health and vibrancy.

WASH PARK GARDEN

Of course, here in Colorado, we are thousands of feet above sea level, as high as 14,000 feet. I am no scientist, but I do wonder if being closer to the sun is better than getting sun from low elevations.


From Colorado Base and Elevation Maps – Netstate.Com

  • At a mean elevation of 6,800 feet above sea level, Colorado has the highest mean altitude of the 50 states.
  • Colorado’s low point, 3,315 feet above sea level at the Arikaree River in Yuma County, is the highest low point in the nation and is higher than 18 state high points.
  • The highest point in Colorado, Mount Elbert at 14,440 feet above sea level in Lake County, is also the highest point in the Rocky Mountains and the second highest point in the Continental United States. It’s located in the Sawatch Range in the western-central part of the state about 20 miles east of Aspen.

Become the Next Shakespeare Through Meditation

A really spiritual person will live life as an art, will create a deep harmony between the body and the consciousness. And this is the greatest art there is. His life will be a joy to see. And he will be fragrant, for the sheer reason that there is no split in his being. The very unity makes him organic; the wound of division is healed.” – Osho

Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.


What is Meditation To Kevy Michaels? – By Kevy Michaels

I am only joking about becoming Shakespeare, but I wanted to draw your attention to the power of regularly meditating.  Apparently, I did.

I practice meditation passionately, as I have been meditating regularly for over 20 years.

It’s the biggest benefit of my life is that it gives me clarity and it elevates me, the latter of which is not very easy to explain, but I will attempt. 

Meditation gives me the ability to interact with the physical world, but in a metaphysical way.  It gives another dimension to my senses, in it’s truest, non-manipulated form.  Meditation allows me to feel the energy, of people, nature, and the air even, from the perspective of my soul, not from the object’s perspective. 

Its power in my life is hinted to in the tagline of this blog, Life Is A Teacher.  Meditation transforms my experiences from being externally driven, to being internally guided.  It takes me to the field of Pure Potentiality, chapter one in Deepak Chopra’s, 7 Laws of Spiritual Success, a book changed my life’s direction, many years ago.  I am so passionate about it, that I reread it regularly, and have given copies of it to friends, family, and strangers in many parts of the world. 

I will feature posts on other chapters in the future.  

In the field of Pure Potentiality is where Divinity, Creativity, Healing, Nature, and God’s energy resides.  It’s a sacred layer of existence, on top of physical existence.  Meditation makes this energy in all things, accessible, in addition to its physical offerings. 

I have found profound power in meditation because it separates me from myself, my ego, and from the character of who I am to the world.  It takes me to my spiritual essence, therefore I see my spirit interacting with life, as opposed to my ego-self having the experience.  It is quite powerful and its benefits have manifested in many ways in my life.  Here are a couple of examples.

It made me more creative, though I never thought that I was.  I can clearly remember when I would write songs (such as the one below) where the lyrics, rhythm, and sound would come to me vividly.  Since I am not a musician, I would ask a close friend, who sang and played guitar, to give the song chords.  Together, we would delight others, performing these songs (and poems) at the Unity church, schools, charity events, nursing homes, and for family and friends.  I would eventually write over 200 songs, over 600 poems, and 100’s more finished and unfinished works.  There were days where I would get what seemed like cosmic inspiration, writing over 10 songs and poems, in one day. 

Being in the field of Pure Potentiality, through meditation, revealed that I had these unbeknownst gifts. 

It happened again in the early 2000s, with Love Electra.  Love Electra was a company I created that aimed to propagate the message of love through its products, presentation, and messaging.  The name, theme music, and product designs all came to me vividly, and magically.  The many products, including t-shirts containing messages of Love & Peace, were sweatshop free, were aura cleansed, contained color psychology, and messages and/or images that inspired.  During this phase, creativity overflowed to the point that I had boundless energy and ideas.  During this period, I meditated daily for at least an hour. 

Those days were exciting!  Our web and remote boutique set up at concerts, churches, raves, and festivals ignited every venue.  In the San Antonio, Houston, and Austin areas, we had a cult following.  I would see before my eyes at these events the power of the mind in making visions manifest.

I included my mother, in her late 80’s, in the excitement.  She guarded the money box.  She protected the money, like Pilate’s guards protected the tomb of Jesus.  I can remember how thrilling it was for her to be adored by so many.   

I believe that like changing a radio channel frequency from hardcore rap to spa music, meditation tuned me into a frequency where all of this potential was accessible to.

Unfortunately, due to having to surrender to life’s circumstances with health, the economy, and mainly having to solely care for my mother after she had a major stroke, Love Electra was dissolved.

But has it really been dissolved?  I feel that with the Life Is A Teacher blog, I am propagating the same message, but doing so digitally, as opposed to doing it with physical products.  Please note that I do not sell anything through my blog.  I don’t directly promote anything either unless it has positively impacted my life.  And, from those indirect promotions, I received no monetary benefit. 

My goal now fueled regularly by meditation, is to convey to my audience my life lessons and wisdom, discerned through trials, errors, bad and good choices, successes, triumphs, and failure. 

What I present today are virtues I’ve gained and discovered in my life, with the hopes of that others will be inspired, as well.  Meditation not only makes this possible, it makes it insuppressible.

The videos below may be helpful in explaining meditation and Pure Potentiality clearer than I have.

This Moment

By Kevy Michaels

Today is the best day

…The best day, of my life

Yesterday has already served me

Tomorrow has yet to arrive

I cleared away all those worries

Cause worries are good for no one

So goodbye to all of the problems

Your time has come;

Now it’s already gone

I going to start today anew

Only happiness will carry me through

I’m going to do what I can do

To celebrate this moment

Chorus

 I’ll celebrate this moment

The one in the palm in of my hands

There is beauty in the joy of this moment

But soon it won’t be here

So I’ll rejoice…..

While this moment is here

And I won’t miss it when….

When it disappears

I will celebrate this moment

While it is here…

While it is here…

=========================

Many things may happen

It won’t steal joy from me

This moment has a smile on my face

In this joy, is where I’m meant to be

Tomorrow is wasting my time

…Got no time to spare anyway

So I’ll deal with tomorrow

After making the best of today

I going to start today anew

Only happiness will carry me through

I’m going to do all that I can do

To celebrate this moment

====================

Chorus

 So I’ll celebrate this moment

The one in the palm in of my hands

There is beauty in the joy of this moment

But soon it won’t be here

So I’ll rejoice…..

While this moment is here

And I won’t miss it when….

When it disappears

Cause I will celebrate this moment

While it is here…

While it is here…
