Everyone is affected by social distancing, quarantines, job losses and school shut-downs. The list goes on and on. It seems like most counselors are offering teletherapy these days, and I do too! Don’t let the social distancing keep you from getting the help you need! While taking every precaution, I am also open for in office sessions.
We are social creatures. I don’t know about you, but I am extravert enough that this distancing is difficult! What can we do? It is vitally important for all of us to stay in touch with friends and family members via FaceTime, Skype or other media. I miss my grandchildren a lot these days, but it does help to at least see them and talk to them via FaceTime. Remember, we are social creatures, and we need connection to stay emotionally healthy. Get some help if you struggle with fear and anxiety; these actually make people more susceptible to disease and these are not fun to deal with!
Here are some preventive measures to take to avoid getting the COVID-19 virus:
Some doctors I follow who have successfully treated viruses for 30 years including the Coronavirus say the following: Take magnesium chloride (I get it in lotion form from the health store), selenium, iodine, and vitamins including D3. Additionally, the good old baking soda is fabulous! Baking soda is actually a heavy weight horse when it comes to healing many sicknesses and diseases. It is used in emergency rooms and saves lives every day! (Do a search on it and see for yourself. I highly recommend Dr. Sircus’ articles.) Dosage recommendation is 1/4 teaspoon in water every day as preventive use. It also helps to heal a person already infected. Another factor is to ensure proper oxygen to the cells, which has to do with making sure we breathe deeply. Since many people breathe in shallow ways (just from the chest), doctors recommend spending 10-15 minutes every day belly-breathing. This can lower blood pressure, ease anxiety, and also provide enough oxygen to the cells. I also take Cordycept capsules daily, which are an amazing anti-viral, anti-bacterial agent. Many recommend colloidal silver or structured silver. The latter can also be bought in gel form as an amazing hand sanitizer that has no alcohol and doesn’t dry out your hands.
The rest you know: frequent hand washing, avoid touching your face, disinfect and sanitize surfaces, door handles etc. Social distancing is recommended during this time. Keep your diet nutritious, make sure you get enough sleep, and engage in some daily exercise!
As a believer, I look to God and his Word during this time. Psalm 91 is wonderful to declare over yourself and your loved ones. God’s love casts out fear (1 John 4:18) and in his love is a good place to be!
