The Corona Virus: Preparedness Checklist
Wednesday, February 26, 2020
Several patients have been asking us questions at the clinic about the Corona Virus. I recently attended a Webinar on this topic and wanted to share a few things with you including a Corona Virus Preparedness Checklist.
Recently The Atlantic reported a prediction from Harvard University epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch. Lipsitch is predicting the coronavirus "will ultimately not be containable" and, within a year, will infect somewhere between 40 and 70 percent of humanity, But don't be too alarmed. Many of those people, Lipsitch clarifies, won't have severe illnesses or even show symptoms at all, which is already the case for many people who have tested positive for the virus. The Atlantic reports Lipsitch is definitely not alone in his prediction. There's an emerging consensus that the outbreak will eventually morph into a new seasonal disease, which, per The Atlantic, could one day turn "cold and flu season" into "cold and flu and COVID-19 season.” (https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2020/02/covid-vaccine/607000/)
The webinar I attended with Myers Detox shared more facts on the virus that echo the above information. Also provided was a list of foods help to boost immunity, alkalize the body and fortify cell membranes. Foods such as a variety of mushrooms, fermented vegetables, and ingesting quality fats and limiting alcohol and refined sugar is suggested.
Just a few of the many supplements suggested are: Colloidal Silver (something I like to have on hand and use for cold/flu season), Zinc, Vitamin C, Vitamin D (from Cod Liver Oil) probiotics, Selenium, Vitamin A and more.
Essential Oils such as Frankincense, Boswellia and Copaiba have antiviral and antiseptic properties and can be used to help calm viral symptoms and to clean surfaces.
Protective Measures such as nebulizing, wearing gloves and masks (check the link below for more details), and avoiding public bathrooms since viruses can be spread with toilet flushing that sprays the virus into the air. Also, moving away from someone that sneezes or coughs can help protect you.
Of course if you are not feeling well stay home.
