natural ways

Over the last couple of days, a number of covid-19 deaths have been reported among those who had taken the vaccine in the sub-saharan country (Uganda). Listed below are some of naturals you can fight the virus.

Words on the street was either they could have taken the vaccine when they had already been infected and yet 2 days ago another cargo plane filled with same vaccine landed at Entebbe international Airport. According to the ministry those that had taken their first dose will be considered first for their second dose.

How ever to help combat the spread of the virus there are a few things you may like to consider and then not worry much about covid-19.

1. Stay at home when you can 

The easiest, powerful and natural action you can take right now is to stay at home. This is not just for you, but everyone else, as each one of us are involved in breaking or building the Covid-19 spread chain.

2. Get enough rest and sleep

No matter how many spices and immune-boosting supplements you are popping, a lack of sleep is the foremost thing you need to fix. Numerous scientific and clinical studies around sleep, low immunity, delayed recovery have been done, and yet we take this natural phenomenon for granted. Honour this beautiful mechanism of sleep and give yourself quality sleep every single night whether you are preventing covid, overcoming it or already have.

3. Load up on immunity-boosting nutrients like Vitamin C, Zinc, Selenium and Vitamin D3 and the sorces of these maybe but not limited to

  • Vitamin C sources: Lemons, oranges, pineapple, amla, guava, bell peppers, papaya.
  • Zinc sources: Pumpkin seeds, kidney beans, boiled chickpeas, sunflower seeds, prawns, oysters, crabs, cashew nuts, almonds, eggs, meat and chicken, ethically sourced dairy. 
  • Selenium sources: Brazil nuts, whole eggs, cottage cheese, mushrooms, ethically sourced dairy.
  • Vitamin D3: immunity cannot function without the basics, and this vitamin is your immunity’s basic need and it’s best to keep your levels close to the upper limit. Mostly you will need a supplement for this, but natural sources that can give you some amount of Vitamin D are, sunlight, mushrooms, whole eggs.

4. Consume adequate protein – Protein is the building block of every single cell of your body, including your immune cells

Veg sources: green peas, lentils, legumes, beans, roasted chana or sattu. Even a simple khichdi can be a suitable option for you. Non-veg sources: well-cooked free-range eggs, mercury-free fish, meat, chicken.

5. Steam inhalation

Doing this will also help loosen up the chest, nasal and sinus congestion and loosen up the excess mucous which makes it easy to expel. Add a pinch of carom seeds (ajwain), turmeric powder and 2-3 drops of eucalyptus oil to the steamer and inhale for 3-5 mins. In case you have way too much mucous, try cutting down on dairy as that might aggravate it.

6. Make some pumpkin soup – Add a bowl of this immunity-boosting soup to your lunch or dinner.

7. Magic Lung tea -A simple brew of selective spices to take the load off your lungs by helping them de-congest and to lower inflammation. the important ingredients may include ginger; smashed or powdered and cinnamon.

8. Invest in light movement and simple breathing exercises 

If you feel tired, ensure complete rest. If you can, get a light walk done at home during the day and include light yoga and simple breathing exercises if you feel up to it.

A little bit of movement will help you handle inflammation better. Do not over train at the same time. Some breathing exercises you can try;-

Box breathing

  • This is an all-round exercise for the lungs, consisting of an inhale, hold, exhale and hold, all timed equally, e.g.: 4:4:4:4 or 8:8:8:8.
  • Sit with your back straight, chin parallel to the ground, and shoulders rolled slightly backwards.
  • Inhale for 4 seconds, hold for 4 seconds and exhale for 4 seconds.
  • Hold for 4 seconds (it is the space between exhalation and next inhalation).
  • If you cannot hold for 4, do it for 2 seconds. This space is very powerful, as it helps increase lung capacity and haemoglobin to hold onto oxygen.
  • It also enables our body to hold on to enough oxygen, even if our breathing pattern has shortened, in times of stress,
