How to regain control of your physical and mental health in the face of the coronavirus

Cómo retomar el control de tu salud física y mental frente al coronavirus

The coronavirus is causing panic in the world.

But will we be exaggerating?... or should we really feel so afraid?

I confess you that at the beginning of January, when nobody paid attention to this disease, I already had fear.

I was following the story very closely. And I feared not for myself, but for the global economy.

Already once the number of cases began to grow exponentially in China, I learned that the world he was in trouble.

why china tracks the purchases, location and personal data of each citizen. When your government wants something done, it gets done.

And the fact that could not control the coronavirus and had to resort to self-isolation 60 million people, it seemed that it was a matter of time before the entire world He would begin to isolate himself.

What is the real problem with the coronavirus?

It happens that many people who become seriously ill from this disease need hospitalization, ventilation and quarantine for two weeks.

The worst thing is that It spreads at least as fast as the flu. And we all know how common it is to get the flu.

In the United States alone, an average of 40 million people get sick with the flu each season. If that same number of people were to catch the coronavirus in this country, millions would require medical attention and overwhelm the health system.

In fact, congressional physician assistant and supreme court physician Dr. Brian Monahan estimates that between 70 and 150 million people in the US will eventually become infected.

Why does the coronavirus spread faster than the flu?

The primary reason is because of the relatively long time it takes for an infected person to experience the symptoms.

Also, COVID-19 can be contracted or transmitted even without having any sign of the virus, which which is an exception in this type of infectious agents.

For example, the seasonal flu usually takes 2-4 days to show symptoms; the coronavirus it takes 5-7 days. That means a wearer can walk freely and infecting other people with whom you have contact.

It is more, in 1% of people it will take more than 2 weeks. Imagine among how many people could propagate it.

That is why it is so important that you remain in quarantine if you return from a trip. you could be an agent infection unknowingly.

As a result of the "virality" of the virus, governments are enacting restrictions before it is too late.

Social distancing is being implemented for an essential reason: to reduce the infection rate so as not to overwhelm the healthcare system, because it takes time to increase the number of beds, tests, ventilators and other hospital equipment.

Without measures strict, the virus will continue to rise exponentially. and the curve alone will start to 'flatten out' with extreme actions like complete blocking being first adopted in China.

Summer It could also favor us, since the coronavirus seems not to be so fast in hot climates, compared to European temperatures.

Another information to have into account is that the number of cases reflected by country is not precise, since are limited to the number of tests carried out, which may mean a small fraction of the actual number of infected.

there is also limited by the type of test performed.

For example, if claims South Korean tests are 10 times more sensitive than those are being applied in Italy. And if in Italy the measurement was made as in Korea del Sur, surely 10 times more than what was announced would be reported.

In the end, the most accurate way to know how bad the spread is in a place will be by looking at the death rate.

Should you be scared?

It is important that understand the risks of the coronavirus, but avoid panicking.

Particularly, I do not fear for myself. But I don't want to get it for community reasons.

I know the stakes are high now because if i get sick i can infect 10 others people and the virus will continue to multiply.

I must be cautious more than for personal reasons, to be a good citizen. I am healthy and relatively young, so I don't have to be worried.

And if you are not immunocompromised, you shouldn't worry either. Your risk of dying from a car accident is greater than happening to you due to coronavirus.

Even if one majority of Americans had COVID-19, the disease Cardiovascular disease could kill more people, since 650,000 people die from this last reason every year.

Now if you are over the age of 60 or have underlying health conditions that compromise your immune and respiratory system, or you are a smoker, you should be concerned about your security.

But do not you exceed because the states of stress and panic compromise the system immune system and can do more damage to you.

My main secrets to prevent infections

for more than 10 I have been biohacking my immune system for years.

And after perform many experiments, trials and errors, I know what works for me and what It doesn't help me stay healthy.

Now I want you to know it too because it could be useful to increase your defenses.

The best supplements

  • Nutritional or brewer's yeast: Contains nucleotides, cysteine ​​and folic acid that feed the immune system.
  • Whey protein: it has cysteine, an amino acid that increases glutathione which is excellent for the respiratory system. It also reduces the chance of getting sick.
  • Reishi, Shiitake, Maitake and medicinal mushrooms: powerfully stimulate the immune system.
  • Astragalus: one is a medicinal plant that promotes a better state of health.
  • Oregano Oil: An antifungal agent with characteristics similar to various antibiotics. I use it in drops and pills.
  • Lactoferrin: it is present in whey protein and has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anticancer action.
  • Bee products: honey, propolis, royal jelly and pollen help strengthen defenses.
  • Echinacea: Boosts immunity and shows some activity against coronaviruses.

the best foods

  • Raw garlic cloves.
  • Raw onions.
  • Salads.

The best lifestyle tips

Drinking water is vital to prevent infections. And that becomes more important in the dry winter climate, because the viruses take hold more in this climatic condition.

Yeah If you drink more water, the mucous membranes will be wetter and your chances will decrease. from contracting infections, because viruses tend to break down in moisture.

Studies have found that drinking hot tea can decrease the chance of catching a cold or flu.

Stress suppresses the immune system. I myself have detected that I get sick more when I'm stressed.

If the same thing happens to you, I recommend practicing meditation because it will make you feel calmer before any circumstance.

Not getting enough sleep is the fastest way to get colds and viruses. Try to sleep between 7 and 8 hours a day, without interruptions.

Exposure to the cold increases the chance of getting sick. In fact, I recently discovered that extreme cold therapies to suppress inflammation also suppress the immune system because the two are so closely linked.

The same happens when combining actions of anti-inflammatory lifestyles, such as lots of sun exposure, exercise, and the sauna.

Pay attention to your body. When you feel really exhausted, don't push yourself too hard.

The best personal hygiene habits

  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Don't touch your face.
  • Do not shake hands with others.
  • Cover your mouth completely if you cough.
  • Do not bite your nails or put your hands in your mouth.
  • Do not touch doorknobs, handles: use your shirt or jacket to open the doors

In times of coronavirus, take these additional steps:

  • Keep distance from people.
  • Clean the trackpad daily from your phone and laptop.
  • And of course follow the guidance from the health authorities.

What you should avoid

  • Smoke.
  • Use of marijuana and drugs (cocaine, MDMA, psychedelics).
  • Alcohol.
  • Added sugars (soft drinks, flour, etc.).
