There is still lots we don’t know about the spread of COVID-19. What we do know that is universal to all viruses though, is the importance of keeping our immune system strong and healthy do we can effectively fight off the virus if we are exposed.
We recommend the following steps to help build your immune system:
*Manage stress: Stress is one of the major factors in reduced immune function. Getting plenty of sleep, meditation, acupuncture and a variety of calming herbs (like chamomile) are great ways to help reduce stress.
*Daily vitamin recommendations to help improve immune response and reduce symptoms of the coronavirus are as follows (doses listed are for adults):
1,000-2,000 mg of Vitamin C,
5,000-10,000 IU of Vitamin D3,
15-25 mg of Zinc and
100-200 mcg of selenium.
*Western herbal preparations like Fire Cider (garlic, onions, ginger & hot peppers soaked in vinegar
with honey) can help support the immune system. Medicinal mushrooms are especially immune boosting, as is widely available Echinacea root and Elderberry extracts. Amounts are important, a common mistake is not taking enough of immune boosting preparations. Check labels or ask an herbalist about dosage.
