Health & the Coronavirus 

Virus Information

 

What exactly is a coronavirus? A coronavirus is a virus that is typically transmitted from animal to animal. Sometimes, wild animals that are kept captive on street corners that sell animal meats can carry this virus. What you might not know is this: animals can pass the virus to humans, but typically, humans do not pass it to other humans. And even if they do, most of the time, it is not fatal.

However, some of these viruses can mutate and become super coronaviruses. In the past, this has occured with the spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS).

The coronavirus all over the news right now is a mutated variation known as the COVID-19.

 

The most important information to know is:

  • Some victims present mild symptoms while others experience more severe symptoms

  • Those with weakened immune systems are most at risk

  • The flu claims more lives per year than the Wuhan virus has so far, but you should still be prepared. You do not need to panic – just be safe.

How to Stay Prepared

 

To protect your immune system from general illnesses and the flu, always remember to:

  • Wash your hands

  • Stay cautious of what you are touching

  • Eat organic whole foods

  • Stay away from sugars (which can cultivate an internal environment in your body for viruses & bacteria)

  • Drink water

  • Get restful sleep

You should also load up your body with the the baseline nutrition your body needs. 

Here are a list of products I recommend having during the virus and why: 

If you were to chose just one item for immune support specific to the gut - the Biome Medic can stand alone and is the only product on the market that is third party tested/certified to remove Glyphosate from the human body.  If you are not familiar with Glyphosate and its detrimental effect on our gut and immune system - please google it.

 

It is the only supplement clinically proven to protect your gut from GMOs with all-natural ingredients. With components humic & fulvic acid, it flushes harmful toxins that create leaky gut, and a special probiotic blend supports “good” bacteria and repairs your microbiome.

 

  • Awarded Gold Seal by the Detox Project as a glyphosate detox solution

  • Double-blind trial showed decrease in glyphosate by 74%

  • Double-blind trial showed decrease in C-reactive protein by 75%

 

It has completely changed my life, improved my overall mental health and most importantly GUT HEALTH. Did you know most of your body's serotonin & happy hormones are synthesized in the gut? After only the first week of ridding my body of Glyphosate, I felt like a different person. I knew what it felt like to be happy again, cravings subsided, my skin cleared up, and I had control and balance in my life like I hadn't had in years.  Use my code BOWLOFLIGHT for $50 off your first BioMedic cleanse w/ a 60-day money back guarantee, and please let me know how it works for you!

C From Nature is a natural, powerful combination of Indian Amalaki, Acerola, Camu Camu, Rosehips and citrus bioflavonoids that is unsurpassed by any synthetic or manufactured vitamin C product.

 

* May support healthy immune function

* May promote healthy cholesterol levels and cardiovascular function

* May promote increased serotonin levels

This is a great way to get NATURAL vitamin C versus just flooding your body with artificial ascorbic acid isolate.

Most of the 'Vitamin C' you see in stores is actually an ascorbic acid isolate, which is different from Vitamin C, and NOT the actual VITAMIN C nutrient itself!  Most Vitamin C's are using genetically modified corn syrup + hydrochloric acid, which enzymatically breaks down into ascorbic acid. This is a mild antioxidant that is in the surrounding matrix of Vitamin C, that in nature protects Vitamin C from oxidation. However, it is not an actual nutrient itself. 

 

C from Nature is a great way to get NATURAL, food based Vitamin C for real immune support. Vitamin C is a vital part of digestion and is a beautiful compliment to Biome Medic. 

**If you are taking chewable vitamin C, PLEASE LOOK AT THE INGREDIENTS. There are often times lots of dyes, lots of chemicals, lots of artificial sweeteners.  Again, most of what you can purchase in the main stream as Vitamin C is actually an ascorbic acid isolate, different from actual Vitamin C.  It’s important to know the difference when it comes to immune support. 

Vir-U-Sure - full of herbs and whole foods, Vir-U-Sure offers extra support to immune function and even the healing process. We recommend combining Vir-U-Sure with any of our green foods (see 'Power Shake' or 'Super Meal LOV' as a double-pronged approach for complete immune health.
