With the threat of various viruses and bacteria spreading, including Coronavirus, there is a need to understand what natural options are readily available to you in case you don’t want to be subjected to conventional medical treatments and infected patients in hospitals. The only proven system to help eradicate these viruses or bacteria is your body’s immune system, and it is of primary importance to start strengthening its response now to give yourself the best chance of successfully fighting off an infection. This is clearly the best way to help your body protect itself against any virus or bacteria.
Work with your body’s natural defences
The only way to work with your body’s natural defenses is to give it what it requires in order to function at optimal performance. Conventional medical wisdom claims that man-made remedies such as vaccines are superior to those provided by nature, but it doesn’t take a scientist to understand that the toxic chemicals and preservatives injected into the body along with antigens is not a legitimate way to improve immunity.
To improve your immunity, you must improve your relationship with nature and the medicine it provides, which has been proven to keep people healthy for thousands of years. In this case, a focus on healing foods and herbs that have strong antibacterial and antiviral properties is of primary importance, along with improving immune system function and eliminating foods that suppress it.
Antibacterial foods and herbs to begin consuming regularly
Even though Coronavirus is a virus, it only makes sense to start clearing out any harmful bacteria in your digestive system in order for your immune system to function properly. This will allow it to do its job more efficiently, which is a must have when dealing with more widespread infections such as Coronavirus.
Antibacterial foods and herbs to consider, include (choose 3-4 to consume daily): Garlic, onion, turmeric, ginger, lemon, cayenne, peppermint, cinnamon, clove, echinacea, Oregon grape root, goldenseal, marshmallow root, uva ursi, yarrow, and colloidal silver.
Most of these foods and herbs can be used in many different ways in every day meal preparation, but the most potent way to receive their benefits in through tinctures, capsules, teas, essential oils, and freshly pressed juices. A few of them are antiviral as well (like ginger, garlic, cranberry, colloidal silver, and Echinacea).
Stock up on antiviral herbs
It’s never a bad idea to have powerful antivirals stocked in your cupboard for daily use, but if your region becomes an area that is reporting infections, you may want to consider taking the following antivirals a bit more liberally (daily) as part of your natural defense (choose 3-4 to consume daily): Una de gato (cat’s claw), pau d’arco, astragalus, elderberry, lemon balm, licorice root, olive leaf, ginger, and oregano oil.
These proven virus fighters will provide another layer of protection to your overall immune support plan.
Consume immune strengthening foods, herbs, and nutrients
Along with these foods and herbs, it’s also important to consider those foods, herbs, and nutrients that help build a strong immune system, such as (consume 3-4 to consume daily): adaptogenic herbs (reishi, siberian ginseng, astragalus, gynostemma, una de gato, pau d’arco), liver supporting herbs (milk thistle, dandelion root, yellow dock root, burdock root, artichoke, turmeric), Vitamin C (camu camu, acerola cherry, guava, peppers, kale, oranges), vitamin D, zinc, and probiotics (supplement or consider sauerkraut, coconut kefir, apple cider vinegar, and kombucha).
The foods, herbs, and ingestible nutrients listed will provide your immune system with exceptional benefits, and can be consumed in whole food, capsules, tinctures, and tea.
Ditch foods and behaviors that suppress the immune system
Another very important factor to revitalize your immune system is to stop consuming foods and engaging in behaviours that depress it.
The biggest culprits in immune suppression are: sugar, alcohol, dairy, corn, soy, wheat, hydrogenated foods, express animal protein, excess flour intake, highly processed foods, chronic stress, excessive EMF exposure (get protection here), and inadequate vitamin D levels.
Improve in all of these areas, and your immune system and energy will reciprocate nicely, both which help your body protect itself against any virus or bacteria as well as possible. You can also choose high quality supplements like the Health Ranger Store, who have created a lab-verified immune-supporting supplement bundle to help protect you in times of viral outbreaks, such as the Coronavirus.
As always, consult with a qualified herbal practitioner or naturopath to determine which herbs and solutions are best for your individual situation. And remember, investing in your immune system and using nature’s medicine quite possibly gives you the best route of action for any type of infection.
If you want to make your own antibacterial and antiviral remedy that uses potent and synergistic whole food nutrition, make the Antibiotic Tonic. It is by far the most effective remedy I’ve ever used in my own home and with clients, and has saved many from taking an unnecessary trip to the hospital or emergency room for toxic prescriptions.
Of course, if things get REAL ugly, taking additional precautions like surgical masks may be necessary, especially in closed quarters like on flights. Just make sure to use one that attaches in a way that doesn’t allow any airflow into the nose and mouth area. A loose-fitting mask will not be particularly helpful in evading airborne contamination, so choose one wisely.
In the end, whatever the origin is of this virus, strengthening your immune system is by far the most important aspect in your protection. Treat it well, and you’ll survive this latest threat.
