Take a break: procrastination found to bolster productivity
While the act of procrastination is viewed by many as something highly unacceptable, a trait of the lazy and easily-bored in society, research shows that it may actually lead to increased productivity.
Professor and procrastination expert Piers Steel, Ph.D, gathered 24 participants and divided them in two groups in an effort to assess whether delaying tasks helped or hindered their completion.

Vitamin C has a patchy history as a cancer therapy, but researchers at the University of Iowa believe that is because it has often been used in a way that guarantees failure.
Most vitamin C therapies involve taking the substance orally. However, UI scientists have shown that giving vitamin C (also known as ascorbate) intravenously—thus bypassing normal gut metabolism and excretion pathways—creates blood levels that are 100 to 500 times higher than levels seen with oral ingestion. It is this super-high concentration in the blood that is crucial to vitamin C’s ability to attack cancer cells.
Medicine is undergoing an existential crisis today. Its core value proposition – to help and not hurt -- is failing to manifest. Patients are suffering. Doctors are suffering.
The only exuberant party on the battlefield against disease is the pharmaceutical industry. An industry whose annual casualties far exceed the death total from our two decade long involvement in the Vietnam war.
The entire system is on the precipice of a collapse, if not for economic reasons alone, then certainly for ethical and intellectual ones.
The irony is that the system has become so ineffective and dangerous that avoiding medical treatment (excluding perhaps emergency care) has become one of if not the best healthcare strategy you can implement to protect your health and well-being.
Nowhere is this clearer than in the realm of cancer.
If medicine makes it through the birth process of its own existential crises, these principles will invoke an entirely new medical model where the placebo effect is not to be "controlled for," but liberated and expanded by educating the patient to the fact that they can and do heal themselves, mainly by avoiding medical treatment and doing the right amount of nothing.

2 Pyrex - or similar - 1 litre and 2 litre - measuring jugs.
I medium saucepan - sterilised with boiling water - allow to cool.
1 non-steel whisk
250ml Water- Distilled best - De-ionised and filtered are ok - NOT TAP WATER.
160gm Ascorbic Acid - from Classikool or Special ingredients on Amazon
195gm Sunflower Lecithin Powder- Classikool or Special Ingredients on Amazon
Measure and mix the Water and Vodka.
Pour this mixture into the small sterile saucepan with the Ascorbic acid
Very slowly, heat the liquid remaining to below 32-35º, whilst stirring with a small whisk until complete dilution takes place and liquid becomes clear.
Pour the mixture into the 2L glass measuring jug with the Lecithin and blend for 2 minutes.
Cool in a refrigerator.
After one hour blend again for 2 minutes.
Cool again in a refrigerator.
Repeat 3-4 times.
You don't have to do the next step if you don't have a ultrasonic bath - if just makes more liposomes.
Pour the mixture into the sonic bath and stir with a plastic whisk for 20-30 mins.
Do not exceed 32-35º.
Allow it to cool.
It doesn't always have to go in a fridge as I have found it thickens quite considerably - so ok to leave it in a cool place.
Its anything up to bowel intolerance really!
So start with a teaspoon in the morning for a few days and then add a teaspoon in the afternoon/evening with food.
3 teaspoons = 1 Tablespoon and from a normal and not therapeutic dosage this is ok.
The therapeutic dose is much higher.

Shanghai Government Officially Recommends Vitamin C for COVID-19
(OMNS Mar 3, 2020) The government of Shanghai, China has announced its official recommendation that COVID-19 should be treated with high amounts of intravenous vitamin C. (1) Dosage recommendations vary with severity of illness, from 50 to 200 milligrams per kilogram body weight per day to as much as 200 mg/kg/day.
These dosages are approximately 4,000 to 16,000 mg for an adult, administered by IV. This specific method of administration is important, says intravenous therapy expert Atsuo Yanagisawa, MD, PhD, because vitamin C's effect is at least ten times more powerful by IV than if taken orally.
Dr. Yanagisawa is president of the Tokyo-based Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy.
He says, "Intravenous vitamin C is a safe, effective, and broad-spectrum antiviral."
