Re: Coronavirus

Are ventilators more damaging than help? Perhaps the ventilators are used by inexperienced doctors....

Re: Coronavirus

Yes, that's a frequent problem when referencing studies of any kind. It is really necessary to read the whole document, not just the summary, in order to detect issues with methodology which then determine the validity of the results. The average person on the street has neither the time nor the tra...

Re: Is Cannabis oil available in pharmcy in Thailand?

There is a native American plant called witch hazel, which is an astringent. It causes swollen tissues to shrink, and is often used in the US for hemorrhoids. Use the pre-soaked pads or just put some on a piece of cotton or soft cloth and apply to the painful areas. Works very well on internal and e...

Re: Coronavirus

Now in Australia, some serious coronavirus patients are treated using ECMO. ECMO is an extremely sophisticated, very expensive system, requiring constant monitoring from specially trained medical personnel.

Re: Coronavirus

Australian chief medical officer said that wearing a mask is not effective. In my opinion, he is ill-informed. ... Wearing a homemade mask can be helpful in preventing the spread of the disease in that it may keep your aerosolized droplets from going out into the air and infecting others. This is e...

Re: Coronavirus

Is it possible to microwave the masks to sterilize if they are in good condition as a temporary measure? The N95 masks have a thin metal strip across the nose to adjust the fit to seal the mask against the nose, so it cannot be microwaved. Paper masks that do not have any metal, like fasteners for ...

Re: Are Mahayana monks allowed to marry?

...I'd like to remind those Trungpa worshippers ... When will you ever wake up and say: "enough is enough"? Whom exactly are you addressing? This is a Theravada forum, most members here have likely never even heard of Trungpa, much less worship him. Maybe you should take your warnings over to DWM? ...
