Plague Doctors
By: / Beginner
Post # 1

On just about every news channel we watch, there are people walking about in masks and hazmat suits in response to a developing pandemic in the world. This is reminiscent of the 13th century Plague Doctor for those who follow history. The methods have changed and the medicine has changed, but what has not changed is the effect on our community.

Now is a good time for spiritual healers, herbalists and those with some medical knowledge to step up and contribute something to our community to assist everyone in staying safe until this passes. Let's use this thread to encourage good hygienic practices and to perhaps discuss magickaland other ways to keep all of our community safe. It would be quite sad to lose any member and the knowledge they may have that we are all here to share and learn from.

A blessing for unity where there was once division

When this does pass, let's all come together and work with one another in a peaceful way. Help support your local business when the time is right, this sickness will and have been having an effect on our economic system. So, a lot of shop owners will struggle to get their business up and running again. Trust your own intention and help out in small ways when you can.

For, now stay safe and protected yourself. You can also protect yourself spiritual by picturing white light around you and cleanse yourself often. Also, try not panic and think of this as be all end all. While the world is in trouble times, think of this as changing times. This is one big tower moment for the world. As old ways will change and let the new ways in.

Sprit has informed me before, but if anyone works with the herbal kingdom, such as herbs, trees and plants. Now, is the perfect time for you to go within and ask for answer to the sudden plague. The cure may lay within the herbal kingdom. So, don't be afraid to share it with the medical community with any cures you may find.

I feel that the first step is to manage fear lest it become hysteria. Heck the news is already doing its level best to cause a panic... intentional or not. A lot of molehills become grand mountains because of the sensationalism of the moment.

This is not to play down how serious the disease is... but more to put it into perspective. The mortality rate is literally between 0 to 17% depending on age and underlying health. Far less than several much more common (and generally un-feared) diseases.

Right now the biggest danger arising from this illness is a resurgance of paranoia, over-sanitization, and misuse of medicines to the point of self harm.

Be aware of your health, take the necessary steps -if- you have a genuine vulnerability, and allow your immune system to do its job. It is like a muscle, it is strongest when it is allowed to work.

Ok FIRST OF ALL: plague doctor bird masks were NOT invented or even thought of in the 1300s, and also it's 14th, not 13th century (common mistake)
Bird masks were invented in 1619 by a German man names Charles DeLorme and made popular in 1665 when bubonic plague hit London. I'd go into more depth but then it'd likely tick people off. I had to correct it beforei went mad.

Anyway, yes I agree with you. A few new illnesses have hit Asia,.and because they allowed sick people to return back to America it's becoming a pandemic. This is a time were every healer should get together and help out in any way they can. Thank you for pointing this out.

Herbalist and natural healer here. Boosting the immune system and simply washing your hands often are two great ways to start protecting yourself. Warm salt water mouth rise to kill germs, viruses, and bacteria in the mouth and throat help to keep the first line of defense healthy. Keep your hands away from your eyes, nose, and mouth unless you just washed them. Ingest natural forms of garlic and ginger to help boost the immune system. Local honey with cinnamon is also a good natural food with lots to help the body fight off disease. Personally I also charge and bless my items prior to consumption. Be sure to reduce sugars in the diet as well, they feed the other side while harming the body's defenses. Probiotics will help to keep your digestive track functioning and ridding the body of waste including those germs, viruses, and bacteria that the immune system has killed. Smudging the air often with white sage will also help to kill the germs, viruses, and bactria in the air. Diffusing oils of clove, orange, and rosemary will also help to clean the air and boost the immune system.

Many Healing Blessing
