How To Protect You and Your Health In Light Of The COVID-19 Situation

What is CoronaVirus?

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.

Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment.  Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.

The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).

Common symptoms include:

  • fever
  • tiredness
  • dry cough.

Other symptoms include:

  • shortness of breath
  • aches and pains
  • sore throat
  • and very few people will report diarrhoea, nausea or a runny nose.

How to Prevent CoronaVirus to Spread? 

COVID-19, most commonly known as the Coronavirus, is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person or from contact with surfaces contaminated with respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land on the people who are nearby (consequently entering the nose, mouth, and lungs) and can also linger on surfaces for a significant amount of time. The CDC recommends these steps to help protect yourself and others:

  • Clean your hands with soap before eating and after coughing, seizing.
  • Stay away from people who are ill.
  • Throw off the tissues immediately that you used while coughing.
  • Keep your surroundings cleaner and don’t move in the crowd when you are sick.

6 Natural Ways to Boost The Immune System and Prevent Viral Illnesses 

  1. Warm and dry the nasal passages with a hair dryer to shrink swollen nasal membranes, temporarily relieving pain and pressure.
      • Viruses reproduce best at temperatures between 91 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit (33-35 degrees Celsius). This is cooler than normal body temperature which is why the virus replicates mostly in the nose and upper throat where the temperature is relatively cool. Viruses do not replicate well in the lower respiratory tract. It stands to reason that raising the temperature in the upper respiratory tract with a blow dryer can inhibit virus replication, at least temporarily.
      • Viruses die at temperatures above 105 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius). Raising the temperature of the nasal passages and throat that high could actually kill the virus that causes colds.

  2. Get Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for Antimicrobial mechanisms and clinical application for infections.

    • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a treatment procedure that involves breathing 100% O2 for a certain time and under a certain pressure. HBOT is commonly administrated as a primary or alternative therapy for different diseases such as infections.   The anti-inflammation property of HBOT has demonstrated that it may play a significant role in decreasing tissue damage and infection expansion.

  3. Use PEMF Therapy to significantly decrease cytokine levels by decreasing inflammation.
    • Since PEMFs provide some benefits in the management of other types of infections, it is worth considering the use of PEMFs to help with not only dealing with viruses specifically but also with keeping tissues healthier to decrease the likelihood of infection and help recovery from current infections.

  4. Gargle warm salt water to help kill unwanted microbes in your throat.
    • Combine 1 cup of warm water with 1 teaspoon of salt and stir to dissolve. Gargle with a mouthful of this mixture for 30 seconds, once per hour.
    • Gargling hourly with warm salt water helps reduce swelling and may ease throat discomfort.
  5. Avoid Ibuprofen as it may enhance the infectious capabilities of COVID-19.
    •  Ibuprofen also causes problems for the kidneys and the GI tract. It is best to let the body utilize its innate abilities to fight an infection. One of the body’s main ways to do this is by mounting a fever. The increased body temperature is a way to mobilize the immune system into action as well as to enhance the killing effect of a foreign invader. Fevers can often be managed by tepid baths, lots of hydration and rest. It is important to maintain electrolyte balance with any infection but particularly when there is fever involved.
  6. Follow Dr. Rick’s immune booster protocol:
      • Vitamin A: 10,000 – 25,000 IU/day 
      • Vitamin C: 1 or more mg three times per day.
      • Vitamin D: 5,000 iu to 10,000/day
      • Zinc: 15-50mg once daily (if using 50mg consider adding 2-3 mg of copper)
      • Selenium: 100 to 200 magma once daily
      • For acute situations: (sick)
        • Vitamin D may be taken 50,000 or more iu on a daily bases for 4 days.
        • Vitamin A may be taken 50,000 iu once daily for 4 days.
