More Veggies, More Veggies, More Veggies!  Fresh is best.  Every meal should be At Least 50% Veggies and Fruits! Hydrate!  Water is Best!  Hot Lemon Water Keeps your body Alkaline, which is a Great weapon against ALL viruses.  Fast food, junk food, and processed foods are all Acidic – which is Bad News for your Body trying to fight the virus, stated a Maidu CA health coach.

Your Body

This is the Fitness Virus => the better your physical condition, the stronger your immune system defense.

Flexibility (stretching and Yoga); Strength (weights and resistance bands); Endurance (cardio – walking, running, cycling).

Get plenty of sleep (recovery, healing, immune system strength).

How Long Are You Contagious

There are different numbers depending on symptoms/no symptoms, but the bottom line is that a minimum of 3 days once you’re symptom-free, if you just suspect but haven’t been verified by a test.  Ten Days is the minimum (14 days is preferred) isolation time if you test positive, but have no symptoms.  Either way, the clock doesn’t start until you are symptom-free.

Vaccines: The Latest Updates

More than 160 potential vaccines for COVID-19 are under study, however, optimistic experts hope that a viable vaccine might be ready by the end of 2020.  People under 20 are less likely to get the Coronavirus, and they don’t show symptoms as often as older people.  So, older people need to be careful around younger people.  They could be symptom-less ‘carriers’, and inadvertently infect the seniors in their family.

Conditions affect Men and Women Differently

Bottom line
– Women are physiologically stronger than men, so now is Not the time to try to be a Macho Man/Alpha Male. No one knows precisely why, but men have more severe cases of COVID-19.  Flushing the toilet can spread the Coronavirus, so ALWAYS Close the Lid Before You Flush (Coronavirus era or Not).  If a loved one is dealing with COVID-19 at home, there are several steps you can take to aid in their recovery.

Bottom line: You want dry, clear sinuses (nasal sprays, etc.), and wet kidneys (hydrate, hydrate, hydrate – warm water, and Hot Lemon Water). Tylenol (pain), and/or Advil/Naproxen (anti-inflammatory) as needed, per directions.

First and foremost: Limit your direct exposure to them.  Stay 6 feet away whenever you can. “If possible, sleep in different rooms, use different bathrooms, and have your family member isolate him- or herself in certain rooms of the home,” said Dr. Turner Overton, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Wear a mask and wash your hands often with soap and water, he recommended.  But don’t leave your loved one completely alone (severity can change dramatically and quickly). “Check on your loved one frequently to make sure he or she is doing OK,” Overton said in a university news release.  “Make sure they are hydrating and eating.“

Check to be sure they are not developing symptoms that could suggest inadequate oxygen levels: blue lips, blue fingers or toes, persistent headache, slow thinking, shortness of breath at rest and inability to talk because of it, and high fever.  If you see all of these together => HOSPITAL!!! Remember: You could still have the disease even if you don’t have symptoms.  But you don’t need to get tested if you are asymptomatic, Overton said. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends you isolate for 14 days after a loved one is diagnosed with COVID-19 to prevent spread of the virus.
