Coronavirus 

🌷Coronavirus: CDC recommends nonpharmaceutical practices to protect ourselves from the virus:  

 

To boost the immune system and get stronger it is recommended to take zinc and vitamin C and vitamin D. Get plenty of sleep and drink plenty of fluids.

SUPPLEMENTS

🌷ZINC: Cases of pneumonia may develop when the inflammation and congestion from a viral infection spirals out of control. Several studies have shown that children and adults who are low in zinc have a higher likelihood of having serious complications from the flu. At least one study found that pneumonias healed much more quickly with adequate amounts of zinc. Somewhere between 20-40% of individuals are deficient in zinc. 

🌷QUERCETIN: Quercetin1 are two other widely available natural products that also show good efficacy against coronavirus and the complications it creates (bronchitis, pneumonia…)

 

DIET

🌷ZINC FOOD - Chickpeas, almonds, spinach, beans, asparagus, oysters, roast beef, pumpkin and squash seeds are some foods that are high in zinc. 

QUERCETIN FOOD: Quercetin and luteolin are found in foods such as broccoli, parsley, artichoke, butternut squash.

🌷REDUCE INFLAMMATION: by reducing or fully eliminate gluten, dairy, sugar (and keep corn and soy low as well). These two foods, along with excess simple carbs/sugars, make up the bulk of the pro-inflammatory foods we ingest. 

TEAS

🌷Licorice tea: This is fantastic for “decongesting” the liver. The liver is quite important in managing immunity. Furthermore, it has some mild anti-infectious properties and helps clear mucous from the ear-nose-throat area and lungs.

🌷Ginger tea: it is considered a “heating” plant, which clears “dampness” from within the body. It turns out that ginger boosts cortisol production which is necessary to mobilize white blood cells in the face of an infection

BOOST:  

🌷Elderberry, echinacea, quercetin, manuka honey 

In addition to black elderberry, Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus) and Quercetin are two other widely available natural products that also show good efficacy against coronavirus and the complications it creates (bronchitis, pneumonia…). Black elderberry study here 

AROMATHERAPY

🌷Thyme: as an essential oil shows great promise in treating coronavirus. The study here.

🌷Eucalyptus: it breaks up mucous, opens the airways, and fights viral and bacterial infections. If you are planning to inhale this oil, please make sure to purchase the radiata subtype, as the globulus can be rather irritating to the airways. The study here 

🌷Tea tree oil: an essential oil that kills airborne influence viruses. diffuse 30 minutes or nebulize 15 minutes in a closed room, wait 15 minutes, then air out the room. The study here 

🌷Lavender : it reduces airway spasm and breaks up mucous. It also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.

 

Here are my favorites natural and organic supplements: 

Pure Encapsulations Zinc 30

🌷Studies show that Zinc helps to boost our immune Support: Zinc works to support the body's natural defense system which aids and improves immune system function.

Cases of pneumonia may develop when the inflammation and congestion from a viral infection spirals out of control. Several studies have shown that children and adults who are low in zinc have a higher likelihood of having serious complications from the flu. At least one study found that pneumonia healed much more quickly with adequate amounts of zinc. Somewhere between 20-40% of individuals are deficient in zinc. 

🌷Zinc supplementation is completely safe and without any side effects.

The best-absorbed form of zinc is zinc picolinate.  Based on the Institute of Medicine Data, safe doses are:

1-3 years: 4mg each day

4-8 years: 6mg each day

9-13 years: 12mg each day

13-18 years: 15mg each day

Adults: 15-25mg each day

🌷This particular Zinc is my favorite since it is zinc picolinate and highly absorbable and suitable for sensitive people as well. 

Free from wheat, gluten, egg, peanuts, magnesium stearate, hydrogenated fat, artificial sweeteners and colors, and other unnecessary ingredients derived from allergens, such as soy, dairy or shellfish.

Pure Encapsulations Quercetin
