The current pandemic is a time of rapid global transformation. We are coming to realise we are all connected, and our personal health and wellbeing impacts everyone. Therefore, the best thing you can do is be as healthy as possible, for everyone’s sake.
Health authorities around the world all agree on one thing: the best way to avoid or treat viral infections is to be well. There are many natural approaches to prevention and treatment of disease. Basic lifestyle measures such as fresh air, sunshine, whole food diet, exercise and social connection build resilience, improve overall health and reduce the risk of chronic disease. These measures also reduce co-morbidities, enhance recovery, and limit the spread of infection. Furthermore, every culture has developed practices and remedies to support immunity and prevent viral illness.
There are many ways to build your immunity and enhance your physiological and psychological resilience so you can prevent and treat acute infective illness and reduce the impact of chronic disease. Many of these therapies combine the best of ancient wisdom and advanced science and do not require medical prescription or supervision. They simply require practical common sense and can be included in a healthy lifestyle with very little cost, training, or equipment.
SPECIFIC INTERVENTIONS TO BOOST IMMUNITY AND WELLBEING:
• Heat applied through baths, showers, hot springs, steam rooms, saunas, and sunshine;
• Nutritional interventions such as seeds, berries and foods high in bioflavonoids, zinc and
vitamin C, and fermented foods rich in microbial diversity;
• Herbs such as tulsi, Artemisia annua, Andrographis, and medicinal mushrooms with anti-viral
and immune boosting properties;
• Relaxation practices that reduce stress and connect you with the inner-well of your being;
- Social connection that amplifies your wellbeing and builds resilient and fearless communities.
