Winter Wellness with Dr. Laura Thompson

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness?” 
 ~ John Steinbeck

By Catherine Austin Fitts

I love this time of year. Yet, I am struck by how many of our subscribers lose time to the ills of winter.

The holidays are more enjoyable without colds and flu. And the new year is so much more rejuvenating when we invest in “major maintenance” – fasts, detox programs or steps to build our immune systems.  Whether you are closing your books, preparing your taxes or managing a volatile market, 1st quarter finances call for strong personal energy.

So I asked my nutritionist,  Dr. Laura Thompson, founder of the Southern California Institute of Nutrition, to join me for the Solari Report to talk about winter wellness.

What are the risks and opportunities you want to consider to stay well over the new few months, particularly given more severe and variable weather patterns? What strategies are cost effective? The implementation of federal health care laws has underscored the importance of doing what we can with natural methods.

We will draw on Laura’s previous interviews on the Solari Report:

Because the winter blues are always a possibility during this time of year, for Lets Go to the Movies, I am going to point you to our list of The 20 Funniest Movies, including Rosaline Russell’s classic Auntie Mame.

In Money & Markets, I will discuss current markets and financial headlines from around the world.

  1. My work team is in the Medical doctor mode. Is having a temperature over 100 degrees,say within the last 24 hours, still the measure for being a risk to others when getting over a virus or bacterial infection?

    Is Viru-Chord, Attenuated Nosode Detoxifier for Viruses, which is too complex for me to self apply it seems, a good product with naturopathic guidance?

  2. Dr. Laura:

    I for years I have been making my own 5ppm colloidal silver with .9999 pure silver wire and a regulated DC power supply that I built myself. I have found it useful as an anti fungal agent for the skin and I will also take 30ML x2 day when I have a cold. When you make it yourself it is an effective and inexpensive replacement for hand sanitizers.

    Is it better to make a Ionic silver with pure saline and distilled water or just silver and distilled water? Is there a difference in the effectiveness of the silver in the two solutions?

  3. Dear Catherine:

    Lindsey Williams made some comments about a “Global Currency (Dollar) Reset” possibly on the horizon for 2014. I would like your thoughts on the likelihood of this occurring and who would benefit the most from it. Since almost all currencies are fiat these days I find it hard to fathom what the replacement would be. Yet the thought of holding worthless Dollars makes me want to put most of my assets into gold and silver.

    Thank You
