Unless you live under a rock, I'm sure you've heard of the recent headlines and corona virus panic.
It's everywhere. Don’t panic.
My advice is to stay calm and focus on
self-care, physically and mentally.
I have been an integrative physician for over 30 years. My wife and I have raised 4 children, who are now adults, without medications or over the counter drugs. Every 2 - 4 years it seems like some new infectiousness disease manifests out of nowhere. There have been times in history where plagues took millions of lives. That was before modern medicine, proper sanitation and good hygiene practices.There were also millions who survived using natural remedies which still work today. Viruses are not susceptible to antibiotics they require a host with a weakened immune system to thrive. A weakened immune system can arise from prolonged stress, physical, mental, and emotional. Belief process plays a big role in immune responses.
I believe that a proactive approach to anything in life improves the outcome. Your health, healing and natural anti-aging process should be no different. You should take a proactive approach to design the outcomes you desire.
So here's my recommendations: wash your hands thoroughly, sleep, rest, no sugars, no grains, no processed foods, limit alcohol, quit smoking, don't over exercise, reduce or eliminate stress, reduce or eliminate limit exposure just like the flu, boost your immune system naturally, remove your fears of getting sick.
Your thoughts can and do influence your immune system and nervous system.
So here are some thoughts on thoughts - seek joy, remove bitterness, avoid negativity, fear and belief in statistics.
Removing fear and belief in statistics that's a tricky one. You need to stay aware of what's going on but be emotionally unattached to it.
As a Integrative Physician I don't believe in waiting for a crisis. The body will show signs of weakness and imbalances long before a disease model is present. The best thing to do it treat the patient first then add natural therapies to improve overall immune function. It never hurts to assist the body naturally.
So, am I worried as a husband, father, or grandfather? No, because we take a proactive approach. Am I concerned for others? Yes! My opinion is if you want anything in life it takes work including good health.
