Here are 5 vital health tips to boost immunity, stay healthy during COVID-19 pandemic.
Connect with the Soil, Boost your immunity
For those who are in some way in contact with the soil, especially now with the virus, your ability to resist such invasions upon your life will be greatly enhanced.
Eat more raw food
All the ingredients necessary for digesting food are not in the body alone; the food also brings these enzymes. When you cook the food, you are largely destroying these enzymes.
Take a shower before you sleep
Always go for cold or lukewarm showers, not hot showers, in the night before bed. It will make you alert. You will fall asleep 20-30 minutes later, but you will sleep better.
Detoxify your body: Drink water with care
Water has a tremendous memory. There have been many experiments in this direction. Let us say your tap water from the waterworks was pumped forcefully through fifty bends, and then up to your apartment. They say after going through these bends, about 60 per cent of the water has turned poisonous. When it comes in the tap, if you immediately drink it, it will work as a poison in your system. If you take it and hold it for some time, it will undo itself again – because the poisoning is not chemical but on the molecular level.
Give your stomach a break!
An empty stomach and hunger are two different things. Hunger means your energy levels start dropping, but an empty stomach is a good thing. Your body and your brain work at their best only when your stomach is empty.
The COVID-19 is an infectious disease similar to the cold. It travels in droplets when you cough and sneeze, and in other body fluids. Personal hygiene is the best prevention.
Watch for these symptoms of coronavirus: runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat, fever and a general ill feeling.
Stay home if you have cold-like symptoms or suspect you may have COVID-19. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands. Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces that you touch. Avoid close contact with others and stay home while you are sick. Drink plenty of liquids and get extra rest. Contact your health provider with any concerns.
The coronavirus situation is still rapidly evolving and recommendations are subject to change as additional information becomes available.
Protecting yourself while caring for someone with COVID-19
As countries are taking stronger measures to contain the spread of COVID-19, self-quarantine and the temporary closing of businesses may affect normal food-related practices. Healthy individuals, as well as those showing acute respiratory disease symptoms, are being requested to stay at home. In some countries, restaurants and take-away offers are being limited and some fresh items are becoming less available.
Try a multi-pronged method that includes a balanced and personal approach to each of the following basic components to a healthy lifestyle:
1. Maintain a balanced diet
2. Exercise regularly
3. Set aside enough time for sleep/rest
4. Get enough social support — use technology creatively to meet with friends/family
5. Set aside time for relaxation
6. Spiritual practice, if any
7. Engage with favorite art/culture/entertainment (many museums and cultural centers offer virtual experiences!)
Important Ways to Slow the Spread
1. Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth to help protect yourself and others.
2. Stay 6 feet apart from others who don’t live with you.
3. Get a COVID-19 vaccine when it is available to you.
4. Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated indoor spaces.
5. Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.
