🎧 NEW CORONAVIRUS Podcast: Optimize your immune response to covid-19 with Dr. David O. Carpenter

I'm so excited to share this podcast with you!

While sick (probably from the novel coronavirus), I wondered: 

With my value system of practical nontoxic living, what is the appropriate perspective given our novel coronavirus?
