Now the world is faced by the coronavirus with no knowledge of its source, it’s treatment or it’s prevention. There is always a new strain of flu virus and no vaccination specific to the strain.

Our bodies are in a constant building and rebuilding process that requires adequate amounts of nutrients. We also need nutrients to defend ourselves from pollution, contaminants and thousands of industrial chemicals that have never been tested. Examples of deficiency: vitamin C deficiency results in scurvy and death and iron deficiency results in anemia and eventual death. It is not coincidental that many vitamins and minerals used in emergency rooms are the same vitamins and minerals that are deficient in processed foods and the general population.
Maintaining a fully functioning immune system is essential to maintain your health. You need education and coaching to learn to make decisions to choose what food to eat and how to prepare it. Learn about sources of clean air and clean water (preferably alkaline), which help rid the body of contaminants and free radicals that damage healthy cells. Learn to avoid dangerous chemicals and detox your body when chemically exposed.
Stress, anxiety and inflammation interfere with maintaining a fully functioning immune system. This can be improved by sleep and exercise, helping the body function more efficiently and rebuild.
Besides nutrition and lifestyle, there are many alternative care methods that aid the functioning of the body and promote a feeling of well-being. These include: Massage therapy, meditation, hypnotherapy, far infrared, Reiki, Healing Touch®.
