Health and Wellbeing in the time of COVID-19

Updated: Nov 5, 2020

Remember schooldays circa '70s? When everyone had a toilet bag and we ALL washed our hands. Today, people walk out of public toilets and workplace toilets bypassing the sink and tap...
A lost skill

There is a lot of misinformation out there right now regarding COVID-19. Does it exist? Was it man-made in a laboratory? Is it a side effect of the flu vaccine? Is the test fake? Why do all cases of COVID-19 and especially the deaths linked to it, have underlying life-threatening health issues? Why are all natural treatments being banned or ridiculed? Why is COVID-19 being recorded as the cause of death in fatalities unrelated to symptoms of respiratory infection? Regardless of what is truth or fiction, I can only encourage readers as to the astounding number of traditional treatments returning to the fore, and to the ingenuity and resolve in the backlash time of unnecessary self-isolation and lockdown.

To anyone who has worked in quarantine or isolation in a situation which posed a real threat, you would know that the over-the-top measures being utilised by the public and businesses are useless and ineffective. The media has a lot to answer for, but the onus must lie with our political leaders who have proven that they take their orders and advice from pharmaceutical spin doctors. The facts surrounding this are extensive, but suffice to say that a mask and gloves will not protect you from any sickness. Nor will staying indoors, out of fresh air and sunshine. Especially when no means to build your health and wellbeing are advised at any level. Aside from the fact we have lost the ability to wash our hands in favour of applying toxic sanitizer, there is no reason not to adopt a few old habits and remedies.

Those who are successful in treatment are taking advantage of the myriad God-given measures, some of which I will outline below. Treatment should never be expensive; this is just a reflection of human nature hoping to make a quick buck from any situation. So, what can you do? Firstly, stop relying on a diagnosis - for anything. All dis-ease should be treated symptomatically because no two cases of anything are identical. This is the pivotal reason why most medical treatments are failing in all aspects of medicine.

Fresh air

This simple measure is not to be sneezed at (no pun intended). Staying indoors and wearing a mask especially, ensure high levels of carbon monoxide and low levels of oxygen which is required for cell health. If you have an ozone generator, use it! Ongoing exposure to carbon monoxide even at low levels, can result in the following symptoms - I am sure you will find it sounds familiar right now, especially in our elderly:

  • Flu-like symptoms

  • Headache

  • Dizziness

  • Weakness

  • Chestpain

  • Cardiac arrythmia

  • Dementia

  • Pneumonia

  • Respiratory symptoms

  • Death

Meanwhile, high oxygen levels are capable of turning each of these symptoms around. Sadly today's air quality especially in urban areas is poor. Again, if you have an ozone generator which are available cheaply online, use it!

The best way to make vit D is to go outdoors where experts now tell us to NOT go. Take off your sunglasses because your pupils are needed for your body to do its magic.
If your shadow is longer than your body, you can't make vitamin D

Vitamin D and Sunshine

Vitamin D is the immune vitamin, generated in the body after sun exposure. In countries where there is no sun, or for bed-ridden patients, you will need to supplement with D3. And as I always advise, don't wear sunglasses because more than 90% of beneficial rays are absorbed via the pupils which sunglasses block. The skin absorbs the rest, but thanks to the whole slip, slop and slap mantra, most people are covered from head to toe.

Let your skin breathe! Some of the benefits of adequate vitamin D levels include -

  • Protection against asthma (especially steroid resistant)

  • Improves cardiovascular health

  • Reduces depression

  • Improves immune function

Filtered water

One of the major symptoms of COVID-19 is dehydration. People simply forget to drink, or they drink liquids which do not assist the kidneys in any way. Tap water is better than nothing but if you read my article on the shocking state of our tap water today, you will know that you are self medicating in the worst way just by drinking a glass of water. Filtered water is important - vital in fact. Get a water filter, use a distiller or reverse osmosis machine. Boiling water will kill harmful bacteria but it will also concentrate levels of other pollutants and heavy metals. As a rule, get into the habit of drinking a small glass of water every waking hour. PS alcohol, coffee, tea, soft drinks, flavoured milks and cordial are not water...

Every health issue has more than one matching tea.
What's in the pot?

Herbal tea

There are too many herbs on this planet to list every single one which will assist with the symptoms of COVID-19. The rule here is to try to utilise herbs that grow in the nation where you live. It is not just an old wive's tale that you will respond better to plants grown where you reside. Herbal teas are the best way to get beneficial herbs into your body and build up your immune system, or treat existing symptoms. Many of these herbs were mentioned in the Bible. The general rule is 1 flat teaspoon per cup of hot water. If dried, you can use a little less. If fresh, pick a few leaves, chop and steep in boiling water. Just a few of the herbs proven over time to assist with COVID-19 symptoms include -
