While we all anxiously wait for a vaccine to protect us against the novel Coronavirus 2019, healthy eating with fruit and vegetables, and or supplements to boost your immune system should be in your mind as much as washing your hands frequently.
Before we jump to look at COVID-19 and supplements that can help to boost your bodies immune system against this virus, let’s not forget there is nothing better than the five pillars of health:
1. Eating healthily so you get your vitamins especially Vitamin C
2. Drinking plenty of water every day throughout the day
3. Regular exercise
4. Getting enough sleep every night
5. Getting 15 minutes of good exposure to the sun for your Vitamin D.
While governments have us pinned down like cattle, not getting what we need to be healthy and happy, we should still try to increase our immune response instead of sitting in the dark all day long waiting for the virus to come, and highly unlikely, kill us. Read on to find out why.
COVID-19 Vs MOST PATIENT’S IMMUNE SYSTEMS
As with most viral infections in the Coronavirus family, Covid-19 can enter the body through the nose. eye sockets, mouth through touching your face after touching something with the virus on it, and then starts to replicate itself in your throat. After a few days it can move to the respiratory tract and attempts to infect the lining of the lungs as it multiplies. The body’s immune system jumps into action to overcome the virus and most people recover before any major complications occur.
In older people or people with weakened immune systems, Covid-19 or and other Coronavirus can get inside the human respiratory tract, it can then infect and multiply in the cell linings of the airways and lungs. This kicks the body’s immune system into action. In most people, the immune system does its work, then recedes and the patient recovers.
CYTOKINE STORM SYNDROME
Inflammation is a reaction by the body’s immune system to fight pathogens as a result of a viral infection right through to cuts and bruises. COVID-19 is different from other Coronaviruses before it. COVID-19 can trigger ARDS (Acute Dysfunctional Immune Syndrome) in some people as a result of a dysfunctional response to the virus, in which the immune system goes out of control and into overdrive production of defensive immune cells and associated signalling molecules.
A cytokine storm is a result that further causes the worst possible symptoms much like pneumonia and severe difficulty in breathing. One should note that those with a lifestyle lacking the five pillars mentioned are more likely to suffer from a cytokine storm than those who do.
NATURAL SUPPLEMENT FOR COVID-19
Effective immune defence supplements for COVID-19 should strengthen but not over-stimulate the immune system while also reducing inflammation. It’s quite surprising that one of the most powerful supplements that can help with improving your health, immune system and response, comes from an apple.
Did I nearly say an apple a day? One of the top nutrients to boost immunity as well as keeping the immune system in check so that it does not overinflamise the area that needs to be attacked is Quercetin. Quercetin is a bioflavonoid and is found in green tea, red wines, buckwheat, berries, red onions, and as mentioned, apples. An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Quercetin has been shown in many studies that seem to have been ignored and this “pandemic” lacking true and complete testing data may only be as deadly as regular flu. This is definitely something we need to take a proactive approach to, eating the right foods, getting enough sleep, exercising does wonders for your health and sleeping well.
VITAMIN C VIA IV POSSIBLY A CURE
In recent days it has come to light that IV sessions of vitamin C are very effective at cooling the immune system, which helps those patients that enter a cytokine storm benefit greatly and despite the losses of the pharmaceutical industry, it seems that vitamin C is providing substantial relief and cooling the bodies immune system and reducing inflammation as a result of the immune system going into overdrive.
Nearly all patients, those very unlucky few who enter a cytokine storm, are being brought out of a critical situation with one round of vitamin C IV. Two rounds are getting just about everyone in the clear.
LOCKED INDOORS TO DIE
So, being locked down, and if you are not eating the healthy foods you need to, lack of sunlight, and waiting to die is definitely the result of politicians with no experience, a non-existent global virus response team or strategy of any kind. Each government seems to just follow the previous steps. It is a fact that boosting your immune system stops you from getting sick.
Do your best to boost your immune system and take on the virus instead of getting weaker and unhealthy locked indoors doing nothing but praying that you are not going to die and that you will somehow not end on the street, completely broke.
DO YOUR BEST TO STAY ACTIVE WHILE INDOORS
Workout in your garden, in your house or apartment. Drink plenty of freshly squeezed orange juice and all those healthy foods listed above. If you can, have good sex for better sleep, especially men, they get really groggy for 15-minutes after ejaculation. And finally, try to manage your stress, which is an oxymoron. How can you manage stress, you can only stop thinking about it. Alcohol and pills for nervousness, anxiety and fear are not management.
