Did you know that in about 80 per cent of cases the lung disease Covid-19 (coronavirus) is relatively mild? This means, the majority of infected people only have mild cold symptoms, and many previously infected people are now healthy again.
In this article, I’ll share 6 ways your body can successfully fight the coronavirus. Many people worry because there are no drugs to treat the coronavirus, however, in most cases the human immune system can effectively fight off the pathogen itself.
For starters, a virus like the Sars-CoV-2 needs cells to reproduce. People ingest the new virus through the nose, mouth or mucous membranes. Once in the body, they can cause an infection named Covid-19 or coronavirus disease. In general, the virus is very contagious.
It is also evident the coronavirus is far more dangerous for the elderly. To give you an example, the recent strong outbreak in North Italy showed a mortality rate of 4%, which is higher than in South Korea. The reason for this surprisingly high percentage is that around 30% of the age population in North Italy is older than 65.
The following facts may also surprise you – so far, less than 10% of all infected individuals showed complications. And most of them were older than 65 and had pre-existing conditions. The average age of all coronavirus related death cases so far is 80.
I don’t want to overwhelm you with statistics, however, the best way to counter this current mass hysteria spread by the media is presenting clear facts.
Let me just recap here. The coronavirus is highly contagious, but it is evident that the progression of symptoms depends on many factors such as age group, pre-disposition of a disease, weak immune system and stress levels.
6 Ways to Boost Your Immune System
1. Apply Common Sense
The best treatment is prevention. Cultivating a strong immune system before illness attacks is the best way to go. As most viral illnesses that cause outbreaks are airborne, make sure you avoid crowded and closed places. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom. When you are in public places, avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
2. Stay Calm and Relaxed
Don’t pay too much attention to mainstream media as their profits feed on easy clickbait headlines spreading fears and bad news. We all know stress weakens your immune system. Practice meditation and deep relaxed breathing. Mindful practices such as Qigong, TaiChi or Yoga are great to balance and strengthen your energies and immune system. In the end, laugh more, and worry less.
3. Remove Existing Roadblocks to Health
Address existing bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic infections. They not only pollute the body by increasing its toxic load and inflammation levels, but also weaken the body’s defence mechanisms. Book with one of our BGH practitioners to help you with this important step.
Help your body to detox naturally. Remove processed foods, GMOs, pesticide-laden foods, and toxic products. Avoid alcohol and excess of coffee. Ask our specialized practitioners to help you to detox your body safely and gently.
Cells in the body react to EMFs as potentially harmful, just like to other environmental toxins, including heavy metals and toxic chemicals. Therefore, reduce your cell phone use: Turn your cell phone off more often. Reserve it for emergencies or important matters.
Turn off your wireless router overnight. This is easy to do and allows your body to relax during sleep and reset your energy levels.
4. Eat a Healthy Diet
This is perhaps the perfect time to cook at home and prepare the perfect food to strengthen your body’s immunity to bacteria and virus. Eat fresh and avoid processed foods. Cut out canned drinks, pastries, biscuits and such. A few grams of sugar can disable your white blood cells’ ability to fight infections for hours. It is well known that garlic and onion are rich in antioxidants and selenium. Garlic is antibacterial and antiviral.
Add probiotics to your diet. Friendly bacteria attack pathogenic bacteria and fungi and can trigger white cell reactions to invaders.
5. Exercise to Boost Your Immune System
Not only exercise makes you feel better, but it also strengthens your natural defence system. As you exercise, your blood circulates through the body, transporting nutrients to all the organs and muscles. Be mindful with your exercises and avoid too intense workouts, as it may weaken your immune system in the short term. Listen to your body and be aware that even walking some kilometres for a couple of times a week helps your lymph system cleanse impurities to boost your immune system.
6. Enjoy Nature
Nature is perhaps one of the best immune stimulators. The fresh air at the beach or forest stimulates your immune system. Additional deep breathing increases oxygen in your blood.
