Tips to stay healthy amidst the COVID-19 pandemic:
The most important thing is to keep your immune system strong so if you are exposed to the virus, your body can stay healthy.
These things strengthen your immune system:
Stay hydrated which means drink water! The standard rule for the amount of water to drink is to take your body weight, cut it in half and drink that many ounces per day. For example, a 100 pound person would need a minimum 50 oz of water per day. Drink more if you're sick! Remember-there is no substitution for water!
Virus cannot live in an alkaline environment. That's why it's important to drink alkaline water. It helps keep your body healthy--especially during this time. I recommend Kangen® water.
Make sure your colon is moving. In other words, make sure you're pooping daily.
When the colon is full and hasn't released every day, your body is absorbing the toxins in the feces. Your other excretory organs try to get rid of the toxicity. The lungs, in particular, are affected by constipation. Since this virus affects the respiratory organs, it's even more important to make sure you're pooping!
NOTE: constipation is not having a bowel movement for every meal you eat.
Movement and/or exercise increases the amount of times your blood goes through your body. The more times the blood moves throughout your entire body, the more oxygen and nutrients your cells receive and the more often toxins and waste are filtered out of your cells. This helps keep your immune system strong!
High-quality, soil-basedprobiotics because your gut is a significant part of your immune system and if it's not healthy, neither are you. I recommend Body Biotics SBO Probiotics.
Garlic is a natural antibiotic and strengthens your immune system. I prefer High Potency Garlic from Nature's Sunshine Products because it breaks down in the small intestines instead of the stomach.
Mucus-forming foods including bread, dairy, meat, sugar, etc.
If you feel symptoms of a cold or flu, regardless of whether it's the corona virus or some other virus, here's what you can do:
Drink more water.
Get your colon moving. Water, Body Biotics SBO Probiotics, oregano on the descending colon signal on the feet.
Get out in the sun if possible. Sunshine has the ability to kill lots of nasty things, including virus.
Try a sinus torpedo with therapeutic-grade essential oils. This gets the oils not only in the sinuses but also in the lungs. I recommend eucaluyptus, cajeput, ravensara, or Young Living blends Melrose or Raven, or the doTerra blend Breathe.
Oregano and Thyme are two very strong anti-viral essential oils. In the case of a respiratory virus, apply oils to the throat (between big toe and 2nd toe), sinus (inside, fatty part of the big toe), and lung (ball of the foot) signals.
NOTE: Young Living and doTerra oregano is 100% and very strong. Continual application of this oil may create irritation. Be sure to dilute if using it regularly.
I spray Kangen® 2.5 water in my nose and sniff (for stuffy nose) and in my throat (in the case of a sore throat) to kill whatever's causing the stuffy nose or sore throat. (I also use it to clean household surfaces.)
If you feel issues in your lungs, I recommend Lung Support from Nature's Sunshine Products.
Garlic is a natural antibiotic and strengthens your immune system. I prefer High Potency Garlic from Nature's Sunshine Products because it breaks down in the small intestines instead of the stomach. They key is to keep it in your bloodstream.
A fever is one of the body's most important natural defenses. A fever is the body's way of increasing body temperature to kill whatever's going on. In the case of a fever, keep these things in mind:
The body needs rest.
The body needs water.
The body rarely needs food during a fever.
Never break a fever-but always control it!
The best way to quickly and safely get body temperature down is by putting cold compresses on the ankle tendons. I have cool (not frozen) gel packs that I wrap around the Achilles tendon. If using frozen, make sure you wrap them in cloth before applying. Or you can use a washrag ran under cold water. Make sure to flip or re-wet the washrag when it gets warm.
