    I agree with Philospoher and Mammele. and thanks Philospher for your helpful information. I hope you are feeling better and have a refuah shelema b’karov.
    Let’s realize that if there is one lesson we can learn from the whole pandemic here is that HKBH is in control not us mortals. It is astounding to me that the doctors will admit that they don’t have a cure or a remedy yet are so confident in saying this and that medicine or this and that remedy is foolish. Who are they to say. Also, there have not been enough studies to say yay or nay in any direction really. This is called novel coronavirus for a reason. It is new.
    It could be that home remedies can work up to a certain stage and beyond a certain stage they don’t. Bottom line we don’t know. It is up to us to do hishtadlus. Hishtadlus is social distancing, it is hand washing, wearing gloves, and or masks, it is using hand sanitizer at times, it is calling a doctor when necessary, going to an ER if that is necessary C”V. and other physical hishtadlus. and that can very well include trying home remedies as preventative or early measures, such as vitamins, supplements, gargling, acv baths, herbs, etc if one catches it early enough. There are many that are being suggested. can’t hurt to try. the original post was not saying these can replace calling doctor, taking a test, going to hospital when indicated. And some of these remedies can make the non-critical yet very painful symptoms ease so it is definitely beneficial to share these remedies.
    As well there are spiritual hishtadlus in addition to above – Tefillah, Tzedakah, Teshuva, Limud Torah, Taanis, Taanis Dibbur, Listening to a shiur, Shmiras haloshon, lighting shabbos candles early,chessed etc
    Let’s daven that HKBH accept our hishtadlus and bentch us with the geulah shelema

    Joseph,
    The ashkenazi yeshiva system has been around longer and is more established and there are more options. 50 years ago, there were almost no sephardic yeshiva bochurim at all. Things are definitely changing, yes. The sephardic mosdos are catching up quickly and I heard from both Rav Yitzchak Yosef and Rav Kahaneman from ponevezh that there are currently more sephardic yeshiva bochurim in yeshivos ketanos in Eretz yisrael than there are ashkenazi yeshiva bochurim. But,it’s still less likely for an ashkenazi bochur to go to a sephardic yeshiva because the ashkenazi yeshivos got a head start.

    It’s a serious problem and a reality. Im sephardic in a similar situation and my ashkenazi rav recommended that I move my family to America for this very reason. Glad I listened.

    I got some GWPH over a year ago, when I saw the trend coming, but it’s still up only 30% since then. Buy Amazon or AAPL first.

    I used my yeshiva bachelor’s to take an online masters degree with Rabbi Lerner’s YIEP program, and I’m very happy with the results

    I was told by a reliable source that it’s 1500 for rebbeim and klei kodesh, 2500 for regular working baalei batim and 5000 for well to do

    Jewish Montessori is great for preschool but fails miserably in grade school

    Shehakol! It’s made of corn flour- just like tortilla chips and pringles are shehakol, so are these

    Erichin was taken a few minutes before you took it. Can you take a different one?
