Corona Virus Prevention Recommendations

Virus ProtectionThis thing called the coronavirus is taking many folks to a worrisome “what is next?” place. Here’s what I want to suggest to you!


Utilize easy ways to boost your immune system so you can consistently stay on top of this and potentially prevent infection or at least minimize the severity. In essence, it’s all about immune resilience!


What follows are some prevention strategies. Please let me know if you have any questions!


The top of MY list to boost immune resilience is stress reduction.

Why? When the body is experiencing stress and holding onto it, the immune system will get affected. It’s a natural reaction.


How on earth are we supposed to reduce stress in the midst of all of this craziness? We’re questioning what we’re supposed to do. How can we best take care of ourselves and others and sort out misinformation? And how can we best NOT go into a place of fear that creates MORE stress?


Reduce stress by doing the Daily Clean Your House Flow!

This 9-step self-help acupressure flow (it takes anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes to do) is super easy to learn and get around to doing because the benefits are noticeable! Your breath will expand. And you will experience that relaxing feeling of “all is good.”


And, please note this flow connects with your immune, endocrine, and adrenal systems to add extra support and give them a boost.


Many people say that the Daily Clean Your House Flow is a built-in meditation practice — true even for folks who say, “I can’t meditate, my body won’t do that.” You can experience a feeling of calm without trying to make it happen. And you’ll replenish your body at the same time!

And for a super quick and easy boost for immune and breath:

  • Right Hand – cup right shoulder with fingers at the top inside corner of the shoulder blade (near the neck); you’re holding an energy balance point that connects to the immune system.
  • Left Hand – hold fingers on the left chest below the collarbone; you’re holding an energy balance point that is all about lung breath and distributing that breath to every cell of your being.
  • Switch hands to do the other side.


More prevention strategies


1.    Take probiotics (and add fermented food to your diet)

2.    Reduce sugar and other sweeteners

3.    Avoid taking unnecessary antibiotics

4.    Exercise regularly – it supports cardio, respiratory and lymphatic health

5.    Get enough rest –restorative sleep allows your body to replenish the supportive systems in your body (immune, endocrine, and adrenal systems)

6.    Keep your body hydrated – make sure you’re getting adequate fluid; maybe add coconut water to your regimen

7.    Keep inflammation down –

  • Consider adding a high-quality omega supplement (essential fatty acids).
  • Determine whether you are getting adequate electrolytes. You may need sodium, potassium, and magnesium as food and supplements to create electrolyte balance.
  • By the way, magnesium helps reduce inflammation, and it’s available as an easy-to-use oil and oil spray).

8.    Have zinc lozenges available if you feel any cold-like symptoms beginning. Zinc can potentially reduce the severity of colds. But be careful. More than 150 mg/day may lead to zinc toxicity with side effects.


Preventative Actions

Here are the steps we’re hearing a lot about and are super important to be thinking about consistently:

  1. 1.    Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  2. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Have some in your car and purse
  3. After coming into contact with shared surfaces like doorknobs and car door handles, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds.
  4. Cover your cough or sneeze (do so into your elbow)
  5. Change your handshake to an elbow-bump
  6. Most importantly, stay home when you are sick and seek medical attention if symptoms worsen.
