CORONAVIRUS: HOW TO BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
IMMUNE SYSTEM TO THE RESCUE
For precautionary measures to prevent yourself from contracting or spreading the virus, see below, but as far as fighting the virus goes, until something like chloroquine proves itself on massive scales, you will have to fight the coronavirus the good-old-fashioned-way--with your immune system.
Antibiotics treat bacteria, and antifungals treat fungus, and although both may be given to a patient with a virus to help with secondary infections, neither group can kill a virus.
Your immune system is a complex army of cells in your body that fights foreign invaders, including viruses.
You would not live for long without it.
So respect your immune system and prep it for battle, either to stop an initial attack by a virus, or wage a full-scale war if you are infected.
Your immune system functions best when you get enough sleep, moderate exercise, natural and fresh food, and reduce your exposure to toxins, caffeine, smoking, and general stress.
Immune supportive foods include green leafy vegetables like broccoli and spinach, citrus fruits, and garlic. Chronic stress and infection can deplete essential vitamins and minerals like Vitamin B, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Zinc. If you go to a hospital with the virus you might get an IV drip of some of these.
The immune system can be distracted and preoccupied with the intake of alcohol, vegetable oils, processed meat, and sugar. Reduce their intake if you want to live a long, healthy life.
Like unnatural foods and liquids, toxins can also weaken our immune system. Reduce your exposure to pesticides, smoking, pollution, food and drink additives, heavy metals, and chemically treated drinking water or toothpaste.
Bottom line: understand and help your immune system to not only keep yourself alive but to reduce the spread of disease to others.
