The Coronavirus is also known as NCP, which stands for Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia. A key factor is how it affects the respiratory system. This is why the main concern is with the elderly, people with existing respiratory problems and serious illnesses.
There are powerful and effective antiviral natural remedies that also boost your immune system. What’s more, diet can play a very big role.
Foods to enjoy:
Foods to boost the immune system are those that are the high in antioxidants, such as berries, green leafy vegetables, garlic, onions, and colourful vegetables, such as peppers, beetroots, carrots, etc. Protein is also important, such as meat, fish, eggs.
Foods to avoid:
The key foods to avoid are those that cause inflammation and congestion in the body. Sugar is key with this, and so are most dairy products, as they create mucus and congestion. In light of the fact that this virus affects the respiratory system, this is very important.
Natural Remedies to Help Protect You
There are potentially many, but these are the key ones:
Garlic – as mentioned above, garlic is helpful in protecting your immune system. You can cook with it, but medicinally it is best to have it raw. This can be done by chopping up a clove and swallowing it, on a full stomach. This should be done at least once a day, and can be done more frequently.
Vitamin D3 – this helps fight respiratory infections (bacterial or viral). The quantity to take daily as a preventative for an adult should be 4,000 iu per day. Vitamin D3 is often combined with K2, which is fine if you are not on medication – but if you are on medications you should check compatibility. Higher amounts of D3 can be taken to protect the immune system; it is one of the most important things that can be done to boost immunity.
Vitamin C – This is antiviral and helps boost the immune system. Quantities needed for an adult are 3,000-5,000mg per day.
Other remedies – these linclude Elderberry, Echinacea, Andrographis, and Olive Leaf Extract.
Homeopathics – There are many homeopathic remedies to help protect against viruses and remedies that can help to overcome it. Some have a flu vaccination type effect and others are to boost your immune system.
