How to Best Protect Yourself Naturally During the Novel Coronavirus Threat | Homeopathy Store
Stay Calm, Informed, and Prepared (Have your Remedies at the Ready)
At HomeopathyStore, we believe that staying well informed is the best way to keep a cool head and determine the optimal steps to protect yourself as unexpected diseases will become more common and the new coronavirus will not be the last.
What is the Novel Coronavirus 2019-nCoV?
The term coronavirus encompasses a family of viruses that causes infections of the respiratory system. Coronaviruses (CoV) originate in animals and are transmitted to humans. Under a microscope, they look like a crown — the English translation of the Latin word “Corona”.
To date, 7 coronaviruses are known to trigger disease in humans. Four usually cause mild symptoms, and three have the potential to cause more severe conditions. OC43 and 229E, for example, are two coronaviruses responsible for the majority of common colds each winter.
The three coronaviruses which can cause more severe outcomes include SARS-CoV (severe acute respiratory syndrome — started in 2002 and disappeared in 2004), MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome — appeared in 2012 and is still in circulation in camels), and the Novel Coronavirus 2019-nCoV.
New Coronavirus Symptoms and Best Ways of Protection
2019-nCoV emerged in Wuhan, China in December 2019. Symptoms are similar to flu symptoms and include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. There is currently no vaccine available against this new virus. The best way to protect yourself and your family is by taking the same steps we take to avoid catching the flu:
- Wash your hands often and thoroughly with warm water and soap
- Avoid touching your mouth, nose, and eyes
- Keep a healthy distance from people who are sick
- Boost your immune system
- Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing
- Stay home when you are sick
- Eat fresh, whole foods
- Drink plenty of water
- Increase the amount of rest and sleep
Homeopathy and Epidemic Diseases
Homeopathy has been very effective in dealing with epidemic diseases. The use of homeopathy during the 1918 Flu Pandemic is especially well known and has been documented in an article in the Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy, reporting that 26,000 cases of the flu cared for homeopathically had a mortality rate of 1.05% compared to 24,000 cases of the flu treated conventionally which had a mortality rate of 28.2%.**
How to Protect Yourself Against Respiratory Viruses with Homeopathic Remedies
Homeopathy offers natural solutions to protect yourself against respiratory viruses, to improve your immune system response, and to fight acute viral infections.
Influenzinum is the homeopathic remedy made with the season’s most updated flu virus strains. It helps your body protect itself against the current influenza viruses and also improves the body’s defense against similar viruses. Influenzinum is taken once a week during the flu season or year-round. Double up and take it twice per week during rough flu seasons or virus outbreaks and use it ad hoc for traveling and visiting crowded places.
Thymuline supports the Thymus gland, one — if not the most important — organ of the immune system and assists in fighting off viral pathogens. Take Thymuline once to twice per week or as often as needed during flu and allergy season, when recovering from a health condition, or whenever your immune system needs a boost.
CoxiFlu, is made with homeopathy’s #1 ingredient to combat an acute flu attack, called Anas barbariae hepatis et cordis extractum in the 200C potency. This remedy is also known as Oscillococcinum, but HomeopathyStore’s CoxiFlu by Anna's Remedies is lactose-free. CoxiFlu is best taken as soon as flu symptoms appear three times a day. Reduce frequency as symptoms wane.
Cold Armor, is a combination of the best known homeopathic cold and cough remedies, including Gelsemium, Belladonna, Ferrum Phosphoricum, and Kali Bichromicum. Cold Armor relieves sore throat, runny nose, fever, and more and helps you breathe. It is recommended at the onset of cold symptoms and can be used as often and as long as needed.
Cellergy is a combination of the most important minerals, also known as the 12 cell salts, and supports stronger overall health. The 12 cell salts include calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, and even more minerals to help you draw the most vitamins and nutrients from your daily food. Two squirts of Cellergy are recommended 3 times a day at least 5 days a week.
All five remedies are made by Anna's Remedies with the best natural ingredients available and prepared here in the U.S. With questions about our cold, cough, and flu remedies, contact us at CustomerService@HomeopathyStore.com.
