Are you afraid of the coronavirus? Let me simply, and in short time, help you sort through understanding, preventing, and treating yourself for the flu epidemic going around now, as well as the coronavirus.
Coronavirus is a family of virus which includes the common cold, and viruses such as SARS and MERS. It is a new virus.
The coronavirus is a virus so antibiotics will not work.
People with compromised immune systems, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart conditions, cancer, etc. are most vulnerable and at higher risk.
I know that you are all pretty savvy so I just want to give you some tips outside of the conventional ones that you know:
- MOISTEN: Put a little lotion, olive oil, coconut oil, etc. in your nostrils to keep the nostril hairs moist. The hairs in your nose help prevent viruses and bacteria from getting in. Between October to May is when most people get sick because we are living with heating which is drying. Keeping our nostrils moist helps the hairs function. Drink a little water very often to keep your throat moist.
- SICK? The first inkling that you don’t feel well STAY HOME, lie in bed, start treating yourself, and rest. Don’t hesitate. Watch a movie, read a book, phone people you love and haven’t spoken to because you’re always too busy. I had to include this tip because I’m alway surprised at how many people just don’t know this.
- SMOKERS: People who smoke have a more exaggerated response to viruses, including the flu. Flu virus symptoms that are often mild in those who do not smoke could have a severe effect on people who do. (For example, smokers are more likely to die than non-smokers during flu epidemics.
BUILD UP YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
There is evidence that some people are always in very good health, including freedom from the common cold, year after year, through the ingestion of only 250 mg of ascorbic acid per day. For good health many people 1000 mg to 2000 mg per day.
It is wise to carry some 500-mg tablets of ascorbic acid with you at all times. At the first sign that a cold is developing, the first feeling of scratchiness of the throat, or presence of mucus in the nose, or muscle pain or general malaise, take one or two 500-mg tablets. Continue the treatment for several hours by taking an additional tablet or two tablets per hour.
Echinacea Homeopathic Mother Tincture
Take recommended doses on a daily basis.
Rosa Canina and Ribes Nigrum Gemmotherapy
Take recommended doses on a daily basis. I recommend these remedies for children who are sick all the time because they are in day care or in elementary schools.
At the first sign that you are getting sick take a dose of aconite. Continue to take a dose every hour for the next 6 hours.
Ferrum phosphoricum 6x
At the first sign of getting sick take a dose of Ferrum phos. Continue to take a dose every hour for the next 6 hours.
Arsenicum album 30ch
At the first sign of a runny nose and tickle or scratch in the throat take 3- 5 doses a day for a couple of days.
Homeopathic Cold and Flu remedies on the shelf are also great for helping you get through faster and prevent the 1 to 3 week lingering sickness.
