Prevent and Treat yourself with natural remedies and building up your immune system!!! I’m sorry to say I am often irritated by the fear generated by the media, and the lack of interest of many to DO something about their immune system!! After all, our ‘terrain’ is what is responsible for our health, and for whether or not we contract any illness….. Let’s do something positive to combat this fear, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Most of you reading this blog have my second edition of Eat Away Illness, so please get it out and pick something to start with, and act by changing your lifestyle instead of focusing on the panic. All of our Cookin’ in the Country workshops have focused on topics that improve our immune system, be it quality food, topical cosmetics and cleansers, and/or supplements, to name a few.
Dr. Zoltan P. Rona, one of my mentors, has written a wonderful article in the Vitality Magazine March 4, 2020. He states “The Wuhan coronavirus outbreak in January has caused worldwide fear, panic, and confusion. Fueled by non-stop media accounts of infection and death rates, quarantines of entire cities, and misleading propaganda to “get your’ flu shots” as a way of fighting the outbreak, the hysteria is building with each passing day.
People are walking around wearing useless surgical face masks as if this offers some degree of protection. It does not (but could be of some value in preventing cameras from discovering your identity). Viruses are too small to be prevented from spreading by the surgical face masks that many folks are using.
Medical authorities are urging us to wash our hands repeatedly to reduce the spread of viruses. Similar to the SARS epidemic of more than a decade ago, antibacterial soaps can be found in hospitals, doctor’s offices, banks, tennis clubs, gyms, grocery stores, and elsewhere. But they are toxic. I recommend that you avoid using these. Such products are quite toxic to the skin and put an added strain on the immune system. Antibacterial soaps contain triclosan and triclocarban, two ingredients recently exposed by the U.S.FDA as being neither safe or effective infection preventers.”
Take some time to learn how to make as many as possible of your own lotions, cleansers, etc., in particular ‘hand sanitizer’ (recipe to follow)
Experiment with fermenting your own veggies for the beneficial effect of populating your intestinal tract with beneficial bacteria.
Enhance your diet with lots of fresh fruits and veggies, good quality protein spread over the day, whole grains and legumes, and raw nuts. Reduce and/or eliminate anything processed, take probiotics, lots of antioxidants, and immune boosters such as oregano oil. That’s the short list. Briefly, Dr. Rona’s top ten natural remedies are: vitamin A, C, D, iodine, probiotics, colostrum, oil of oregano, black seed oil, curcumin, silver hydrosol. I encourage you to read the whole article, and also, if you need any help building your immune system, please feel free to book an appointment with me. Here is the link to Dr. Rona’s article: https://vitalitymagazine.com/article/coronavirus-protection-and-treatment-top-10-natural-remedies/
1/4 cup aloe vera gel
1/2 tsp. glycerin
1/2 tsp. colloidal silver
10 drops tea tree oil
10 drops wintergreen
Mix all together in a small glass container, and add pure water if needed to make desired consistency. I like it the way it is.
Place in small glass containers to carry with you, and keep in your car. I like small glass bottles with eye droppers.
Good Health is Not An Accident!
