The onslaught of the Corona virus, also known as COVID-19, is so devastating because it is a disease that is new to humans, so people have not had time to develop any resistance to this particular virus.
Because there is currently NO proven cure or treatment, and as of yet, NO vaccine to prevent one from catching COVID-19, we must rely on prevention. Here are main things you can do to protect your own health and the health of others :
To maximize your natural ability to fight this an any other disease following the general rules of good health apply even more urgently:
1) Balanced diet and healthy weight
2) Vigorous and varied activity and exercise
3) Adequate and regular sleep
4) Positive attitude and Spiritual health
In addition I strongly recommend supplements and other natural approaches to gear up your body's natural fighting ability:
This 2017 study confirms the role of adequate Vitamin D levels in the prevention of several respiratory (lung) diseases, as well as some cancers. It is of special note because Vitamin D levels are actually not uncommon in the population, with the highest prevalence being among African-Americans.
Probiotics are becoming the unsung heroes of our immune system, as well as a host of other health-giving benefits. It is thought that by taking a daily probiotic supplement, you can balance out the population of 'good' bacteria working in your gut. These friendly bacteria work on our side too when it comes to unwelcome bacteria or germs.
