How to Strength the Immune System?
Although there are some or many debates on the networks about the origin of the Coronavirus, even if we do not know exactly the origin (yet) or have doubts, the priority, it seems to me, is to focus on how to solve the problem, that is, how to avoid or prevent or treat the symptoms and effects that the Coronavirus produces in our body. With the added danger of its inevitable global expansion, as we are seeing.
As we can see and reflect, based on the current information we have about the Coronavirus, we can do something to protect each and everyone who wants to follow these measures that we are recommending here.
Summarizing the measures that we can take to protect ourselves strengthening our immune system:
1- Healthy diet (the ideal is vegan, non-toxic, alkalizing and well balanced) despite the unfounded opposition that exists against this diet.
2- Supplements that help strengthen the immune system (plants like ginger, garlic, lemon, Curcumin and vitamins like D and C).
3- The measures that international organizations (WHO …) and governments are announcing and promoting to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (wash hands, avoid public places etc.)
4- The use and application of Hydrotherapy.
5- Get away from polluted places, live or move to rural areas (if it is possible), or where there is less contamination.
6- Stress management: since stress (negative) can affect our immune system.
7- Reject fear, because fear certainly will affect your immune system (1), impairing your lymphocyte function. For believers and non-believers: Faith and trust in the Creator. There are long studies on the positive effects of spiritual life on health that support this recommendation.
Some supplements or nutraceuticals
(These teas should be taken continuously)
(a) Echinacea and chaparral. Echinacea strengthens the immune system and chaparral is an antibiotic. Put one heaping tablespoon of echinacea in one quart of boiling water and boil gently for thirty minutes. Turn the flame off and add two tablespoons of chaparral. Let this mixture steep for twenty-five minutes. Drink one cup first thing in the morning and finish the remainder of the quart throughout the day. This is one day’s dose. You must make the teas fresh daily; they lose potency after twenty-four hours.
(b) Pau d’Arco, blue violet and red clover. These herbs strengthen the immune system and cleanse the blood. Add three tablespoons of Pau d’Arco to one quart of boiling water and boil gently for twenty-five minutes. Turn flame off, add two tablespoons of blue violet and two tablespoons of red clover to the Pau d’Arco and let the mixture steep for twenty-five minutes.
(c) Do not use sweeteners in your teas. Though they are medicinal and may not appeal to your taste, the herbs were given to us by our Creator for healing. Drink them faithfully!
(d) You may also use goldenseal and aloe vera.
(e) Licorice tea also boosts immunity. Glyke, a substance isolated from the herb Glycyrrhiza uralensis, or licorice root, was tested on sixty patients who were HIV positive. About seventy percent of the cases improved and three cases were reported to have converted from HIV-positive to negative, two of which remained HIV-negative. The report was made by Professor Lu Weibo of the Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China. Consider the herb teas as part of your eight to ten cups of daily water intake.
(f) The herb teas should be continued after the fever treatments stop for one to three years.
Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-viral due to its gingerol content. And the Coronavirus is a virus.
As we discussed in previous post, we are treating a virus that attacks the lungs and produces “pneumonia”, which leads us to think that we need to treat (and prevent as far as possible) the Coronavirus infection with treatments or measures focused on inflammatory processes and infections, then it is imperative to strengthen our immune system.
In other words, within natural medicine (based on science) we need to use natural elements and supplements that help fight inflammation and infection, respiratory infection in particular.
1 2-inch knob fresh ginger
1 Tbsp raw honey (Do not give honey to infants under the age of 1.)
Peel, then finely grate ginger into a small bowl.
Squeeze grated ginger through a fine mesh sieve (or just use your fingers) to release about 1 teaspoon of juice. Discard pulp.
Mix the teaspoon of fresh ginger juice thoroughly into the tablespoon of honey.
Take the syrup right away, swallowing slowly and deliberately.
Take 2-3 times a day, as needed to soothe sore throat and dry coughing.
