My patients have been asking me what to do about the new Corona virus threat, which is certainly a situation that should be taken seriously. However, don’t panic, prepare! Worrying lowers your immune functions and won’t help you be safe.
Here is a little write up of what I am generally recommending for viral infections and what I would be personally using to protect myself and my family; if you wish to receive a more personally tailored recommendation for yourself, please call the office to ask for a phone consultation or an office visit.
A good functioning immune system is the single most determining factor of how well your body will withstand a possible coronavirus infection or any other viral infection for that matter.
Besides the obligatory Hygiene measures, here is what you can do to stay well during these challenging times:
- Avoid sugar, sugar reduces your immune functions rapidly and for a while after each time you consume sugar. Avoid alcohol as it functions like sugar in your body and also lowers your immune functions.
- Stop smoking. On a good note, there has never been a better time to quit this habit! If your lungs are already struggling due to smoke and tar deposits, they are more vulnerable to a respiratory virus and its complications including pneumonia. Please call us if you need help, we have a program that has been very successful in keeping you smoke free.
- Eat lots of fresh organic vegetables and fruits.
- Get lots of sleep, rest and exercise if you can, preferably in fresh air.
Supplements to boost your immune system:
Since your immune system is complex, the help it needs is also complex. There is not just one single magic ingredient, rather a well-orchestrated, high quality and properly dosed approach of several key elements which will make the difference!
Reports have shown that intravenous Vitamin C has been very helpful in recovering people from the corona virus and respiratory distress. Vit C can also be given as an intramuscular injection. We have both available in our practice.
Liposomal Vitamin C from Designs for Health is the next best thing to the injectable form. It can be used at home or while traveling to get high amounts of Vit C into your body effectively. The Liposomal technology allows for immediate bioavailability and intracellular delivery and is far superior to regular oral Vit C;

Vit D 3: Vitamin D is essential for your immune functions, regular dosage in winter is 10.000 units daily and when infected you can take up to 50.0000 units daily for adults, I don’t recommend taking D3 without K2. 10.000 units D3 with K2 comes in one capsule from Designs for Health as the Vitamin D Ultra 10K, and adults may take one daily, and 4-5 daily when sick or exposed. For more info and ordering:

Each 0.5 ml serving of one pump delivers 2500 units of D3 and 325 mcg of K1 and K2. For more info and ordering: clearskymedical.ehealthpro.com/products/liposomal-d-supreme
Xcellent A from Xymogen, Vitamin A helps the cell wall to keep strong to inhibit a virus from entering the cell and it helps to reduce viral replication; Many viral infections are more severe in a Vitamin A deficient state, the most famous example is the measles.
