With the immense pressure placed on our health services during the COVID 19 nightmare, the absolute best we can so to support them is to make sure we look after ourselves as best we can.
Social distancing, of course will help alleviate the pressure and being infected may be out of our control but boosting our immunity is not! We can do small things to help support our immune system systems so we can reduce the risk of contacting the virus, at the very least allow our bodies to be strong enough to fight it.
The following are tips and remedies you can include to help.
Washing hands for 30 seconds, cleaning your mobile phone surfaces regularly should be standard.
First and foremost is eat clean! Remember what we put in our bodies is fundamental for wellbeing, if your eating rubbish, drinking soft drinks, alcohol then this not only places a strain on your immune system but increases toxicity and crates acidity in the body.
The throat is the first line of defence, making sure you are protecting the throat and nasal passages by doing salt washes. Get a nasal wash bottle and make a solution of cooled boiled water with 7 drops of Spectramin . Lean head over sink with mouth open, gently squeeze the bottle up one nostril and allow it to come out of mouth then repeat the other side, this aids to cleans the nasal cavity. Other suggestions are the Inhalo Salt inhalers one for Bronchial and one for Nasal. Salt is a natural cleanser and with the lungs being one of the main targets for COVID19 it is a great idea to support the respiratory system. Spectramin is also great to add 2-3 drops in boiled water to gargle with, a natural antiseptic and antibacterial it makes the perfect mouthwash.
