According to a hospital executive I spoke to yesterday, the coronavirus is a weak virus that attacks lung tissue. Immune challenged people are the highest risk. If an affected person sneezes on you, or you touch something that they touched, the virus can live on your skin or clothes for about 4 to 5 hours. Wearing a mask and gloves gives you added protection, and is an intelligent choice to stay healthy.
According to a hospital executive I spoke to yesterday, the coronavirus is a weak virus that attacks lung tissue. Immune challenged people are very high risk, especially people with all three conditions: heart disease, lung disease and diabetes.
If an affected person sneezes around you, or you touch something that they touched, the virus can live on your skin or clothes for about 4 to 5 hours. Social distancing and wearing a mask when in public adds another layer of protection. With the "shelter in place" ordered by our Governor, it is advised to limit exposure until this crisis passes.
If our healthy nervous system, the parasympathetic nervous system, could talk, it would say, “People and the universe loves and supports me. Things always work out for the best. People like what I do. Life is good. I am safe and loved. All is well.” Healthy self-talk is your very best medicine.
People make daily choices that impairs their health and we are observing the fall-out. For example, instead of washing your hands often with soap and water, people use hand sanitizers. The antibiotics in them go right through our semipermeable skin and into our blood system where they build up, creating antibiotic resistance.
The food industry uses very large amounts of antibiotics so they can raise large numbers of cattle, pigs and fowl in very small stockyards, same with farmed fish. When we eat meat, chicken and fish that are not organic, we are taking in dangerous levels of antibiotics every day and they build up in our bodies.
The build-up allows antibiotic-resistant bacteria and viruses to flourish and multiply when they enter our body, seriously compromising our immune system, making us easy targets for every passing flu epidemic.
Consider food as fuel. The food you eat and the inner dialogue you have with yourself is your best medicine. Get plenty of rest, fresh-air and exercise every day. But the main thing is: As a spiritual being, your main job is to teach this body you live in that it is safe and loved.
