These high-zinc foods could help stop coronavirus

In case you didn’t know, scientific research published in the journal PLoS Pathogens back in 2010 found that ionic zinc is a powerful inhibitor of coronavirus, preventing its replication and spread. Continue reading

What if the cure for the coronavirus were as simple as taking zinc?

It’s now looking increasingly clear that zinc may truly be the “silver bullet” for stopping coronavirus infections and ending this global pandemic. This mineral is incredibly affordable, safe and widely available, yet no one in government or media is recommending that people take zinc, since it can’t generate the billions in profits found in prescription drugs and vaccines.

Viral pink eye seen in both symptomatic and asymptomatic coronavirus cases, making it a possible sign of infection

Ophthalmologists may be the first people to detect if a person is infected by the novel coronavirus. Reports have surfaced that the virus can cause pink eye or conjunctivitis, and that this may be a telltale sign of infection in people who otherwise show no coronavirus-related symptoms.

Chronic respiratory conditions can significantly affect an individual’s quality of life. From breathlessness to chronic chest pain, respiratory conditions cause a host of complications that can impair the flow of oxygen throughout the body. Continue reading

High Heat May Kill the Coronavirus

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • A recent Chinese investigation suggests COVID-19 is highly sensitive to high temperatures and spreads faster in colder climates; its most rapid spread is occurring at a temperature of 8.72 degrees Celsius (47.7 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Fever is a core mechanism by which your body fights viral infection. You can simulate a fever by raising your core body temperature in a sauna, steam bath, or by engaging in physical movement to induce sweating
  • A number of studies have investigated the antiviral effects of sauna bathing. For example, a clinical study involving 50 volunteers showed regular sauna bathers had half the rate of common cold compared to nonusers. Those who use a sauna at least two or three times per week also have a lower risk of influenza and pneumonia
  • Sauna use kills bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses and boosts your immune function by increasing white blood cell, lymphocyte, neutrophil and basophil counts. By elevating your core temperature your body also releases heat shock proteins that help block the replication of influenza viruses
  • Coronaviruses (as a general group) incubate in your sinuses for about three days before moving down into your lungs, and appears to be destroyed by temperatures around 133 degrees F (56 degrees Celsius), which can easily be reached in a sauna

Coping With Coronavirus Anxiety, Isolation and Loneliness

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • If you’re anxious about getting infected with novel coronavirus or worry about the health of family members, consider trying the Emotional Freedom Techniques to ease your anxiety or the FAST technique from NET
  • As governments around the world are issuing social distancing recommendations, more and more people are self-isolating and limiting their face-to-face interactions. While important to curb the spread of infectious disease, self-quarantining can also trigger or worsen feelings of loneliness
  • Even without government-recommended social distancing, loneliness is already at “epidemic” levels; 46% of American adults report feeling lonely, 47% say they do not have meaningful in-person social interactions on a daily basis and 43% report feeling isolated
  • Ease boredom and stay connected by video chatting with family and friends. Other creative solutions people have come up with include live-streamed DJ sets, online book clubs, cooking classes and other online events conducted via video conferencing or video chats
  • For those who were already isolated to begin with, the recommendation to connect through technology may not help much, since they lack a social network. Many of the most vulnerable, such as the elderly and disabled, also lack the technical know-how. For these individuals, the answer really lies in a compassionate reaching out by others, perhaps complete strangers

CO2 Treatments for Coronavirus

A global push to slow the spread of the coronavirus has put more than 1.7 billion people confined to their homes. All of these people need some simple treatments they can do. The perfect treatments for coronavirus need to be safe, widely available, inexpensive, easy to administer and of course effective. The good news is that 100,000 people have recovered from the virus. It is treatable for the vast majority unless one is already near dying from a preexisting condition. Continue reading

The Most Vulnerable Die First

Two years ago I wrote: The CDC has called the 2017-2018 flu an epidemic and in England it’s a pandemic filling up hospitals until its standing room only. They are reporting that more than 50 patients at a time had been left waiting for beds in casualty units, with 120 patients a day being managed in corridors and “some dying prematurely.” Continue reading

6 Natural ways to strengthen the immune system amid the coronavirus outbreak

The immune system is the body’s first line of defense against infection and disease. A healthy immune system can identify pathogens and distinguish these from the body’s cells. However, a weak immune system caused by poor nutrition and lifestyle choices can make the body susceptible to infections, like the coronavirus that is currently ravaging the world. Continue reading

The Truth About Sleep

http://

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Our modern lifestyle, which glamorizes constant internet connectivity and round-the-clock activity, conspires to keep us awake far longer than is healthy
  • The standard recommendation for adults is to get seven to eight hours of sleep per night. Teenagers need around nine hours, while younger school-age children may need upward of 11 hours
  • Healthy sleep consists of five general stages, each stage lasting five to 15 minutes, with a complete cycle (light, deep and REM sleep) taking between 90 and 120 minutes. You cycle through these stages four to six times each night, and this cycling is tremendously important, from both a biological and psychological perspective
  • So far, 51 DNA markers that appear to influence sleep have been found, including markers for long and short sleep duration, morning and evening personalities, insomnia, and high or low sleep efficiency
  • Sleep deprivation has a number of concerning health ramifications, including the promotion of diabetes, excess weight, heart disease, cancer and cognitive decline, just to name a few
