I hope that you and you’re loved ones stay safe regarding the corona virus.
Personal preparedness will be key as food stocks might run low, gas and domestic travel might be restricted as well as potential quarantines.
Acupuncture can help to boost the immune system, but do not come into the office if you are having any signs of an upper respiratory infection even if you think it’s just a regular cold or flu virus and contact your doctor for guidance. Many people are being asked to self quarantine for 14 days if a person has signs of an upper respiratory infection or if they’ve been in contact with someone who has.
I wanted to give you a list of natural substances that can help fight against the corona virus as well as strengthen the immune system. There has been quality research on all of the below, even listed on the National Institute for Health, but I’ve provided a link to just one of the studies that was done in 2003 for SARS and SARS associated corona virus regarding licorice root extract.
None of the below is a guarantee of prevention, but if someone contracts COVID-19, the below list can help to recover much sooner.
- Licorice Root Extract (alcohol free)
- Astragalus Root Extract (alcohol free)
- Elderberry Syrup with no sugar added
- Olive Leaf Extract
- Oil of Oregano
- Vitamin D3 + MK-7 version of Vitamin K2 (taken together)
- Ascorbate Vitamin C
Here is a link to a study showing Licorice Root Extracts ability to fight SARS and SARS associated corona virus:
Licorice Root and Astragalus Root are both used in many Chinese Herbal formulas to fight infections/bacteria/viruses, build the immune system, etc. Many of those formulas have helped people to recover from the current outbreak in China.
You can also put Thieves essential oil in a diffuser to try to kill virus and bacteria in the air.
My thoughts and concerns are with you!
