During the past two years (2020 and 2021), I (Dr. Joseph Peck) researched, reflected on, and archived many, many articles and videos related to the current pandemic.
Finally the time came for me to provide a synopsis of what I have learned. On January 6, 2022, I hosted a live global broadcast titled “C*V*D: Making Sense of the Research – A Systematic Review“.
This website and the associated community are a HUB for finding relevant, current, and valuable information regarding regarding COVID, including scientific, social, and spiritual.
The Passion Translation (TPT) of Proverbs 3:13 says, “Blessings pour over the ones who find wisdom, for they have obtained living-understanding.”
In the footnotes, Dr. Brian Simmons writes, “The Hebrew text here implies that wisdom gives the ability to take raw facts and draw right conclusions and meaning from them.”
The purpose of this website is to impart wisdom, knowledge, and understanding so you can make wise choices about your health, family, and work.
Drawing on my years of experience as a physician caring for some of the sickest of the sick combined with extensive reading and research, my desire is to open a dialogue to help you look at the raw facts and gain understanding that will benefit you – your body, soul, and spirit.
BODY, SOUL, AND SPIRIT
Much of healthcare nowadays focuses primarily on caring for the body, while largely ignoring the spirit and the soul.
Yet the spirit is created to be in loving leadership over the soul and the body.
Human beings are created spirit, soul, and body.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 says “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
- Your spirit is where your conscience resides. Your perception of God is in your spirit.
- Your soul includes your mind, will, and emotions.
- You are a spirit, you have a soul, and you live in a body.
Teaching people how to take care of their own bodies is extremely important and a vital part of healthcare and wellness.
It is IMPOSSIBLE to take care of the whole person if you focus only on the body and ignore the spirit and soul. A holistic approach is necessary for optimal healthcare.

DR. JOSEPH PECK’S BACKGROUND
What’s my background—my education, work experience, spiritual foundation?
Am I credible? Should you listen to me? Can you trust what I say? Are my motives pure in sharing this message with you?
University of Virginia (UVA)
- I attended the University of Virginia for undergraduate school.
- I graduated in the top 2% of all students in the College of Arts and Sciences.
- My degree was a BA degree in chemistry with biological specialization—essentially a degree in Biochemistry.
- My biochemistry teacher was regarded as one of the top teachers and authorities for biochemistry in the world. His book we used in class was regarded as one of the best in the world.
- I was the #1 student of all students in my major.
- The HONOR CODE was very important at UVA
- The most important thing I learned at the University of Virginia was how to learn—how to study and how to do my own RESEARCH.
And by the way, RESEARCHING was one of the original 4 Rs taught in schools at the time the United States was founded.
- For the past several decades, public schools have taught the 3 Rs (Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic), but only one of those begins with “R” and none of those were the original 4 Rs.
- The original 4 Rs—Researching, Reasoning, Relating, and Recording—can all be traced biblically, educationally, governmentally, and historically. The Bible becomes the textbook as teacher and student learn to research the Word and see God’s hand in the “Big Picture.” Biblical principles are identified and recorded as students learn to write reasoned essays and apply biblical principles to areas of life, social issues, and current events.
