The Novel Coronavirus
Don’t Panic, Take Precautions
by by Anthony Martinez Beven
The novel coronavirus is from a family of existing viruses. Those who should take extra precautions are within the older population, and those with already compromised immune systems, such as MTHFR genetic defects. Those with MTHFR defects mean that the body is not genetically wired to detox on its own, or metabolize folate or B-vitamins.
Healthy immune systems can typically address viruses by running RNA interference inside of the cells, thus preventing or limiting replication. Also, the immune system releases T-cells that attack and destroy viruses inside of the body.
Those who eat right, take supplements, exercise and drink lots of water probably have nothing to worry about. Those who smoke, drink, eat processed food, over-consume meat, dairy and products with processed sugar should reassess their dietary and lifestyle habits.
Foods that Feed Viruses
In a viral outbreak, try to avoid overconsumption of foods with arginine. While generally helpful in the healing process and waste removal, this amino acid is an essential requirement for the replication of viruses and progression of viral infections.
• Pumpkin Seeds
Foods to Fortify the Immune System
• Vitamin A – This is important for normal vision, the immune system, and reproduction. Vitamin A also helps the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs work properly. Examples include: orange and yellow fruits and vegetables, dark leafy green vegetables and egg whites.
• Vitamin E – This aids in the prevention of coronary heart disease, support immune function, prevent inflammation, promote eye health, and lower the risk of cancer. Examples include: almonds, sunflower seeds, spinach, broccoli and avocados.
• Vitamin C – This is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It's involved in many body functions, including formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. Examples include: cantaloupe, citrus fruits, kiwi, mangoes, papaya, pineapples, watermelon and berries.
Top 3 Immune-boosting Supplements to Consider
• Probiotics (w/ Prebiotics) – The good bacteria forms a barrier along your intestinal lining to prevent the virus from passing through the intestinal lining and into the bloodstream. If the virus gets through one and two, the friendly bacteria actually communicate with your body to produce substances that neutralize the virus before it causes damage.
• Thyme – This evergreen herb has a powerful ability to potentially kill off bacteria and viruses and should be taken at first signs of a cold or illness.
• Sage – A member of the mint family, this aromatic herb that has long been used in traditional medicine to possibly treat viral infections. In one study, sage extract significantly inhibited HIV activity by preventing the virus from entering target cells.
Other supplements to research & consider:
• Digestive Enzymes
• Black Seed Oil
• Olive Leaf Extract
• Colloidal Silver / Structured Silver (liquids, gels & sprays)
• Green Tea
• Licorice Root
External Detox: Infrared Saunas
Infrared saunas are a great option to repair and rejuvenate lung tissue, while clearing out toxins. Of course, it is not recommended during a period of acute sickness. However, the health benefits of exposing yourself to extreme heat include improved heart health, mental health, immune system function and more.
Typically, viruses are inactivated at temperatures between 140-145 degrees. Most full-spectrum infrared saunas, which include both near and far technology, can reach between 140-158 degrees. After an acute sickness, infrared saunas are a great option to detox the body.
