137 – AeroNabs to bring the pandemic to a close, valuing ourselves, fostering coherence

As this coronavirus pandemic and the varying governmental restrictions drag on (still with inadequate personal testing and problematic contact tracing), many still hope for an effective (and safe) vaccine to get us out of this mess. However, scientists at UCSF have recently created a much easier, cheaper, and safe way: an antiviral treatment that totally deactivates SARS CoV-2! In this episode we explore the nature of nanobodies and how they can be engineered to stop this coronavirus in its tracks, before it can enter human cells, basically providing immunity from Covid-19. This is the game-changer that we all need. The rest of the episode delves into self-esteem dynamics and being triggered within family systems (among others), nature of the “low-road,” and how to get back to BRIE (Balance, Resilience, Insight, and Empathy) for coherent and connected functioning.

Question # 17. Did your parents project that it was desirable for you to think well of yourself, to have self-esteem? Or were you cautioned against valuing yourself, and encouraged to be humble?
