Reduce your viral risk factors!

Hello and how are you today? 

I've written this post for my patients and clients to offer you help and to show you what you need to do now. It's great to be healthy and strong. The issues with COVIR19 isn't that you will get it and die, as 4 out of 5 people who get the illness are only mildly effected by the virus with sore throats, coughs, headaches, flu symptoms. However, what about if you spread it silently to your elderly family members?  then they may die.... Thats the one person in five who we all need to look after now. So please take note of this virus and recognise that we have a free travelling global virus that is now serious.  We need to minimise infection and spread it out so that it doesn't get out of control. We need to contain and mitigate the spread of COVIR19.  At the bottom of this article I have listed the latest info with the most prone age groups for you. 

We don't know whats going to happen. However with herbal medicines we can help you now and reduce your risk factors. 

Research has shown that the viral curve can grow steeply and that the earlier in the recognition you act and take appropriate social actions such as self care, immunity boosting and stopping socialisation unless necessary then there can be delays in the surge and there can be better control and management. 

I remember when I studied my masters in Public health we went into intricate detail about how viruses spread and how they effect populations. At the time I knew this information would come in handy and I knew I needed to store away the gold nuggets of learning so that when the time came and a virus that was new and dangerous entered my community I would be able to help people. 

This is what I came up with and this is what I am doing. Please look at your options and decide what you need to do. We will be posting herbs and getting medicines to you as required. We will be at Eumundi  markets on Saturdays for our clinics and we are taking logical public health steps to prevent ourselves from becoming infected. 

Grab a cuppa and sit back for this read 

This pic was taken yesterday at my friends place. I enjoy herbal teas and I recommend that you drink plenty of them now. Think turmeric, ginger, lavender flowers, rosehips and sacred tulsi basil. These are all antimicrobial and help keep your system flushed and clean. 

We have studied the curve of viruses and how an epidemic can become visible and effect communities. Today Italy has gone onto lock down and many other places are becoming responsible. Once the virus hits a critical mass then it will double in number each week. I am not being negative suggesting we may have many more cases in Australia by June. Please research yourself and understand the upwards and silent curve of viral infections when they are free roaming in the community. In this case our global community. 

We don't know what availability we will have with suppliers and we have all the regular herbs to help with viruses, coughs, colds, flus and your other health needs. 

 I am recommending that my patients and clients get in touch with us now and tell us what you need at home. We have herbals available now at our regular prices and we can help you with each stage of your needs. 1. prevention with reducing risk factors with immunity. 2, dealing with common colds and flu symptoms. 3. Coping with respiratory system ailments and lung conditions for seasonal prevention and wellness. 

This is because we understand herbal medicines and we understand how to help you and your family. We don't know whats going to happen. But we do know it can happen fast in community and that your exposure doesn't necessarily need to end up in an infection that compromises your health. Talk with us. We are here to help. 

5. Buy some vitamin C powder and use it daily. If you get cold and flu symptoms then give yourself a vitamin C flush as per my book The Wellness zone and please look at my past writings on how to do a vitamin C flush. In Shanghai the use of Vitamin C is the main medicine for the COVIR19. They are using it intravenously. However the oral flush is very good at home and can be life changing and cure you in the early stages of any cold or flu at the moment and thats a great preventative action to put into place. 

There are many strategies you can use at home with your own regimes to boost your immunity along with the concentrated organic herbals we can provide you with. It's not a crazy idea to stock up on what you need now as demand will grow and supplies will be limited. 



6. So is it good to go out for coffee now? whats the risk for us? are the people in the cafe healthy? are you going to sit beside someone who is incubating with viruses ? In Australia right now its super low chances of you getting this  latest Corona virus.  Remember that 10% of all common viruses every year are a corona virus and that this one is new. We don't know the cures yet. but we do know that normal health wisdoms go a long way in helping us. 

If you run a business then check your staff and do the right thing if you are sick or feeling unwell and stay home from work, school or university. Have a rest instead of going out and remember to be successful in boosting your immunity. Create your coat of armour now and look after yourself. 

On another note this is whats happening Internationally.. 

The latest news is currently live and the information that many communities are supplying are saying the following information. 

 The World health organisation WHO have declared a global pandemic. 

We need to create voluntary social distancing so that we can reduce rates of illnesses and the total number of people who become ill in a given time frame. We need to do this over a longer time frame, to reduce risk factors over weeks and months. 
COVIR19 kills ten times the number of people as annual influenza rates. We need to reduce burden on the health systems and the more people that become ill over a short time frame creates stress on the health care systems. Fast growth of the rate of infection creates too much stress on society. 
We need to recognise the outbreak now while we are low on the curve and  take measures now. The curve goes up and doubles every week or so and by mid May we could have hundreds of thousands of people  infected with the disease. 
If there is a government order to reduce social behaviours and only go out for necessary functions, boost our immunity and stay strong. The problem is if one person in your home brings in the illness it can spread fast through your whole family. 
 In the  Washington State USA today implementations of limitations of numbers of people in gathering was limited to 250 people. Older adults and individuals are encouraged not to attend the event and social distancing will be adhered to. Employees are screened for COVIR19 daily and if they have symptoms they are not to work. Hand santatising is available for all people at the event and if someone has a sore throat, cough, or cold symptoms they are actively asked not to attend. 
Italy is in lock down and has cancelled all movement of people unless they have permits and its essential. 
The age groups for the highest risk for death are 
over 80 year olds 14.8% have died so far
over 70 years old 8% death rate
over 60 years old 3.6% death rate
over 50 years old 1.3% death rate
No children under 9 years of age have died from this virus to date. 
The WHO put out the death rate at 3.4% overall compared to 0.1% with normal seasonal flus. 
There is also a call within public health for people to stay away from health care settings as much as possible. You are better to stay home and restrict movement as much as possible. If you think you have COVIR19 or have been exposed then make phone calls to your healthcare providers. We need to reduce the potential impact on the health care system and tale self responsibility to stop spreading the disease to others.
