Gratitude and Viruses

After my recovery, I was able to recognize when I had a real virus. This was because I no longer felt as though I had the flu all the time.

So whenever a virus came along I treated them the same as if I were in a dip, as long as the symptoms weren’t too bad (I would have seen my doctor if they were.)

So, up until March 2020 I occasionally caught a flu-like virus and I allowed my immune system to do its thing without interference from me. No over the counter medication. I ate healthily, drank plenty of water, rested and pampered myself. All the while banishing any negative thoughts about how horrid it was to have flu.


I recovered quickly each time.

Then last March I was just quietly getting on with my life when one day I suddenly felt ill, with some strange symptoms, most of which I won’t go into here. So I went to bed, and did my usual acceptance and allowed my immune system to do its job, etc.

I still felt a bit off during the next few days, but managed to look after myself. A friend took my dog for her walks.


I noticed that I couldn’t smell or taste things, but didn’t worry about it because I just decided it was part of an amygdala loop due to this virus being more challenging than others I’d had.

I found that I wasn’t thinking straight, either, so I stopped actively moderating in the forum, just played a back seat role in the team discussions.


For the next 3 or 4 weeks I had good days and dippy days, often alternating, so I reckoned my amygdala was testing out a new loopiness. The GP techniques helped in all of this.

After 4 weeks I was OK enough to return to my normal.


Sometime after that, the medics told us that losing taste and smell was a symptom of Covid 19. There was no testing available for me so I wasn’t tested for it. I wasn’t ill enough to see my doctor, and I certainly wasn’t ill enough to be hospitalized.

I was fully recovered by some time in April, and have stayed well. I am 73 years old and have a history of bronchial asthma, so I am extremely grateful for having the Gupta techniques at hand when challenged by that virus. I always will be.

Having been forced to stop working aged 53 due to CFS, I was later diagnosed with Fibromyalgia as well. (With the added challenges of hypersensitivity to chemicals, smells, various foodstuffs, bright light, noise, etc.)

10 years later I found the Gupta Program and started my recovery. Wanting to pay back some small part of what I owe the Gupta Program I later volunteered to be a moderator in the Facebook Gupta Forum.
