Coronavirus health advice

Strengthening the immune system is more important than ever at this time, and can give crucial protection from the pandemic.

Consume a whole foods, nutrient dense diet with plenty of protein.

Eliminate sugar and refined carbohydrates – this is particularly important for diabetics, who are more vulnerable.

Increase intake of medicinal foods like garlic, onions and ginger; herbs and spices such as oregano, turmeric and rosemary; fermented foods (eg. sauerkraut, beetkraut, kimchi, miso and tamari) and drinks eg kefir and kombucha; and bone broth. Make sure you are adequately hydrated.

Supplement with a good multi-vitamin and mineral, vitamin C, vitamin D3 with vitamin K2, zinc and a probiotic. Additionally it may be sensible to take quercetin, resveratrol and alpha lipoic acid.

Have tonic herbs like astragalus and ginseng; and mushrooms such as reishi, maitake and shiitake.

Just as important is getting enough sleep and exercise outdoors, also relaxation and meditation.

Reduce exposure to EMF pollution from Wi-fi and computers, making sure at least that your router is switched off at night. Replace or re-calibrate smart meters.

In case of infection and showing symptoms of Covid 19 – the disease itself – increase vitamin C to at least 5 grams daily up to bowel tolerance and take with the amino acid lysine. Take anti-viral herbs like artemisia, andrographis, marigold, liquorice and echinacea; and if cough and difficulty breathing are prominent, take comfrey, marshmallow and thyme to support the lungs. Bee propolis would also be therapeutic.
