My most powerful strategies against Coronavirus

Are you worried about the Coronavirus?

If you are, I want to share some powerful strategies with you to prepare and boost your immune system.

But first, let me say this. I'm not freaked out about the Coronavirus. I am very, very annoyed at how the media is spreading terrible fear and sensationalism everywhere, and I'm glad we don't have TV at home. 

I do acknowledge that there are populations who are more vulnerable, so I don't want to downplay this.  Believe me, I know what it feels like to have a kid who almost died from a disease, although we still don't know what causes this disease (Even experts do not know what causes Kawasaki diesease. One possibility is that it may be an abnormal response to a common virus that most people do not react to. Symptoms resemble those of a virus or an infection, but no specific viral or bacterial cause has been identified).

Our strategies to prepare for Coronavirus or any kind of flu and sickness here at our homestead include the following:

1) Consume elderberry syrup, a potent antiviral that you can either buy at a store, order online, or make yourself. I have a tutorial how to make it yourself >> HERE <<

Elderberries are amazing medicine with anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and anticancer superpowers. Besides lots of flavonoids and free radical-butt-kicking antioxidants, elderberries contain 87 percent of the daily value in vitamin C, and huge levels of vitamin A, potassium, iron, vitamin B6, fiber, and betacarotene. 


2) Wash your hands frequently with hot water and soap

Do this long enough to be effective, not just a quick few seconds of splashing, but a nice 20 seconds rub of the front and back of the hands, and between the fingers.  Just sing the "Happy birthday" song twice, and you're good.   

Don't keep touching your face. So many of us touch our eyes, noses and lips many times during the day without even noticing it. If you refrain from doing this, the chances of a virus entering your body are drastically reduced.  

3) Stop eating sugar

Sorry, I know you don't want to hear this. Sugar is so yummy and addictive... and bad for your immune system.  I stopped eating refined white sugar eight years ago, although I still eat honey and maple syrup.  My immune system has been so much stronger!

4) Consume foods that ward off viruses, and use natural remedies

On my membership site, I list these foods and herbs and also give some awesome recipes to soothe you if you do contract something.

I'll leave you with images of our still wintry homestead. May these pictures soothe and calm you. Remember: Don't let yourself get all hyped up and fearful now!!!

  1. Glad to hear from you! I thought you might be in moving craziness and if so no posting would be entirely understandable! First thing, are you drinking straight ACV? Whaaa? It must be very weak. Then, what are your dates for moving? I think I told you we're going on the road after our property sells. We'll put it on the market in early April if we can work through the punch list by the end of this month. Peace and love, Renee

    1. Hey Renee, yes, we are in the organizing stage right now. That means we are GETTING RID OF A LOT OF CRAP! I can't believe what you can accumulate when you live somewhere for 18 years! We'll be out of here May 1st. Then living in the RV for five weeks for the kids to get their schooling done up here.
