What Should I Do To Combat COVID-19-Corona Virus?

What Should I Do To Combat COVID-19-Corona Virus?

You can't turn on the tv, radio, or your computer right now without hearing about the Corona Virus (COVID-19). So what can you do? According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC):

The best way to prevent illness is to practice everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
  • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
  • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. 
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

Boosting your immune system is key to ward off this and any type of infection. Keeping your body healthy and strong by eating a wholesome diet is critical in supporting the immune system. Here are specific foods that boost the immune system: cinnamon, turmeric, wheat germ, elderberry, red or pink grapefruit, lemon, oranges, pear, unsweetened yogurt, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots, kale, spinach, Swiss chard, mushrooms, garlic, tomatoes, egg yolks, elderberry and honey (especially Manuka variety).

Important vitamins to bump up on are Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Zinc. If you are into Essential Oils, your best options are lavender, lemon, oregano, eucalyptus, and/or tea tree. These all have anti-microbial agents to ward off bacteria and viruses. Some, also have decongestant properties which will help you breathe better if your nose is stuffy and you’re coughing. These essential oils are quite strong so it’s best to use them in a diffuser at the office or bedroom. You can also add up to 10 drops in your bath or mix 1 drop to your regular moisturizer before applying it to your face, neck and chest.
