Coronavirus 2019 – May 5, 2020 update

by | May 4, 2020

There is no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The last coronavirus epidemic was in 2003 with the SARS Outbreaks of epidemic proportion occur in high human dense regions of the world. However, besides avoiding contact with people, everyday preventive actions can help prevent the spread of viral respiratory diseases, including: (according to the CDC)

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

Treat Coronavirus Like The Flu

The director-general of the World Health Organization said that President Donald Trump was right when he compared some approaches to preventing the coronavirus to the flu.

“You treat this like a flu,” Trump said Wednesday at a news briefing. “You want to wash your hands a lot, you want to, if you’re not feeling well, if you feel you have a flu, stay inside.” Nevertheless, VIce President Pence, as the head of the Coronavirus Task Force is moving to bulk up protection in the US.

What Supplements Can Help Prevent Coronavirus?

(In Brief – from my Dec 19, 2019 blog)

Optimize these throughout the flu season (Now until the end of April or May 2020)
Vitamin C – 3 to 5 g. orally or up to 25 g as an IV
Vitamin D – (get your blood level above 60 ng/ml – check in Fall and Spring)
Zinc – 75 mg per day
Probiotics – cultured whole foods – sauerkraut, yogurt, keiver, kambucha
Garlic – the most versatile and immune building herb

NOTE: If over the age of 12 or have a blood lymphocyte count lower than 1,500 per cc take Dr. Kojima’s mixture of Kampo Herbs to raise your interferon production .

(see )

Don’t forget to drink plenty of water, get regular exercise and rest & wash your hands often throughout the day

Avoid sugar and processed foods! Your amount of stress, environment contamination, NOTE: If earliest symptoms of a virus begin take an Echinacea / Black Elderberry formula – 2 tablets every 4 hours for up to 7 days

Flu is rarely dangerous for otherwise healthy people

When cared for hygienically and nutritionally, flu seldom becomes a deadly disease in otherwise healthy people. It is a historical note that while the Great 1917 Influenza Epidemic killed 40 million people worldwide, over 500 million of the world’s 1.5 billion people were exposed and came down with the flu and totally recovered, and another 1 billion were exposed and did not come down with the infection. Within 36 months the 1917 flu virus mutated and became harmless. Prevention and wise choices have stopped all epidemics in recorded history. Perhaps the status of the immune system makes all the difference.
