A quick post to give 6 simple health measure to take amidst the Coronavirus.

Other than the obvious of washing your hands and not spreading bodily fluids and covering the mouth when you cough. 
This post is 6 simple things you can do to reinforce your immune system against threat of the Coronavirus.
First of all, do not allow yourself to go into panic or fear, that attacks the amygdala and puts the body into fight or flight response, which lowers your immune function.

Also, eating plant based and protein based foods will keep you in better health. Here are some supplements, foods and info to boost the immune system to naturally guard yourself.

VITAMIN C 

Vitally important. Taking 1,500 to 2,000 Mg a day can greatly improve your immune function. Eating foods high in vit c like oranges and kiwi are beneficial.

VITAMIN D 

Affects key cells of the immune system. Taking 40-80 iu a day can boost the immune system or eating foods like eggs, fish, cereals, nut and soy milks, mushrooms and more.

MUSHROOMS

There are many that have been touted as immune boosters. These include Shiitake, Reishi, Maitake, Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane and more. You can find in capsule form, or make a tea from the dried form, or cook with them for delicious mushroom rich dishes.

TURMERIC

Taken in conjunction with bioperine (black pepper) it is an immune booster that is also an anti-inflammatory. You can find it as a spice to cook with, make golden milk with it or take it in capsule form. 

REST and WATER

Get plenty of rest and hydration. Both of which reduce oxidative stress which can lead to lower immune response. 

EXERCISE and BREATHING 

Boosting the body’s oxygen intake can greatly improve the immune function. Exercising and moving the body along with taking deep, oxygen rich breaths are important. You can also take deep, purifying breaths in, imagining the body carrying the oxygen (or light) into all of your cells, and on the out breath releasing any stress, fear or negativity your body, organs, cells and being is carrying.

Hope this helps.
