The Coronavirus is a Global Threat

The coronavirus has impacted the whole world. The fear is mounting and even in San Diego there are cases that are causing people to worry. But, we aren’t helpless. We have the ability to fight the coronavirus and change how we live. One of the best ways to do it is taking good care of our wellness so that our immune systems are strong to fight the coronavirus. Let’s ensure that we are doing our best to prevent the spread of the virus for the sake of our own health and the others around us. ICOHS College in San Diego is here to help with some tips and tricks to help prevent the virus from spreading:

1.       Maintain the body in an alkaline state. A body with high alkaline pH levels doesn’t get sick as often as a body with acidic pH. There is a wide variety of foods and substances that can help raise your alkaline level:

–          Magnesium chloride
–          Sodium bicarbonate
–          Olive oil and lemon juice
–          Turmeric tea
–          Ginger
–          Black pepper

–          Lemon juice diluted in water (without sugar)

2.       Start taking high quality vitamin C and, if you have children or elderly people in your family, be sure they take it as well. Vitamin C is important in maintaining a healthy and strong immune system. Its recommended daily intake is 75 mg for women and 90 mg for men. You can find a high-quality vitamin C supplement or get your daily dose from foods.

3.       Wash your hands consistently throughout the day with antibacterial soap. Soap kills any bacteria and germs that might find their way onto your hands.

4.       Avoid places where there is a crowd and close contact with people. Masks with professional grade filters are good as well if you want to be safe.

5.       Eat beef liver. It’s a nutrient-dense super food that can help boost the immune system. They are full of vital vitamins and nutrients. Beef liver can be cooked in a variety of ways and tends to be on the affordable side compared to other cuts of meat.

6.       Drink carrot and orange juice. Carrot juice is full of beta-carotene, Vitamin B, and other minerals. Orange juice is loaded with Vitamin C. You could also choose to eat oranges and carrots if you don’t want to drink juice. Sprouts and Trader Joe’s in San Diego carry great options of organic juices that you can purchase. The carrot and ginger juice is an efficient one for strengthening your immune system.

7.       Drink fennel tea twice a day. It has the same substance that is in the medicine used to treat the flu. It can also reduce stress, detoxify the body, and more, according to Medical News Today.

8.       Cut down on sugar. Sugar makes our bodies more acidic and prone to several health problems.

9.       Stay home if you’re feeling sick so you don’t put others at risk for catching the common cold. Getting sick already means that your immune system is lowered, therefore you want to be sure you give yourself time to recover and don’t put others at risk.

According to UC San Diego Health, the general public of San Diego is still at low risk for the coronavirus. They want to ensure the public that it is still safe and any patient that tests positive will remain in isolation until CDC makes a determination. They also stated that a person needs to be within 6-8 feet of someone with the virus in order to be at risk of being infected. It is our responsibility to take care of ourselves and others, so be sure to share this with your friends and family.
