Build-up Your Immune System for Covid19. Here's How...
by Dr. Muhammad
(Wilmington, DE USA)
The very unsettling and scary fact concerning the Corvid-19 virus is the length of time it takes to positively identify affected individuals.
By the time most people are ID as infected, they have already infected several others!
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), it takes at least 3-4 days before the average infected person shows any symptoms.
Add to that, the 2-3 days a person must maintain a high fever or a steady dry cough before they can get a doctor's or hospital's clearance to be tested. That's at least a week that this person is in the presence of others who can become infected and concurrently, infect others!
Knowing that each person, who is not self-quarantined, is open to becoming infected in this way means that the "best defense" is to build-up our immune system to keep the potential for getting the virus very low, or at least very mild if we are infected.
There are several inexpensive ways for that to be done. First, take at least 2,500-3,000 mg of Vitamin C, or 5,000 IU of Vitamin D, or 1,000 to 2,000 mg of Echinacea.
There are several other vitamins that you can take daily, as well as a healthy amount of fresh fruits and vegetables.
These supplements will allow your body to build a defense and strengthen existing antibodies.
Medical technicians and infectious disease experts have no idea how long we will have to live with this disease.
With that being said, it's in our best interest to start a routine that will maintain our health over the long run, rather than look for a "quick fix" to keep us safe.
There is no vaccine, which means, there is no "silver bullet"!
Besides, taking on a vitamin routine which I have suggested and eating more fresh fruits and vegetables will help make you healthier against other viruses and bacteria infections in the long run. In addition, it will help regulate your digestive system and keep you regular.
This is very helpful! Thanks a lot!
3,000 mg of Vitamin C though! That sounds over the top, but I am with you totally, better to be safe than sorry.
I've loving this forum though, your tips and other before are absolutely golden.
Thanks again for sharing Dr.
