I hope you are well.
To help you as much as possible in this situation, I'm offering TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS for all in need. For now, there is no treatment for COVID. However, we can support our body with complementary cares such as homoeopathy or supplements.
For those who have COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms, I do offer one first consultation and three follow up for £300.
I have also summarised some more precautions (see below). These are to take into account in addition to the governments' recommendations.
Kings College just launched this app today with researchers to help slow the spread of #COVID19 and identify at-risk cases sooner by self-reporting your symptoms daily, even if you feel well 🙏🏼. Download the app
Please share with everyone you know.
COVID-19 does infect a person via the upper airways (nose and mouth) where it stays for approximately 2-4 days before it goes into the lungs. In the lungs it produces a thick mucus blocking the alveoli and preventing the exchange of gas causing shortness of breath. This can escalate and lead to suffocation.
The virus can be effectively inactivated by surface disinfection procedures with 62-71% ethanol, 0.5% hydrogen peroxide or 0.1% sodium hypochlorite within 1 minute. COVID-19 is surrounded by a lipid membrane which can be ruptured with soap.
Precaution is Paramount
1. Drink a lot of hot fluid frequently, such as tea or soup to keep you hydrated and wash the virus into the stomach where it can be neutralised by the acid.
2. Take a sip of warm water every 20 minutes to wash the virus into the stomach.
3. Gargle with an antiseptic such as warm water with vinegar or lemon juice twice daily.
4. The virus can stay in the air for approximately 3 hours and it attaches to hair and clothes. Wash all your clothes as soon as you come home (at >40ºC) and take a shower, washing your hair thoroughly. Wash your hair and change your clothes every day.
5. Wash metallic surfaces carefully. The virus can remain on inanimate surfaces like metal, glass or plastic for up to 9 days. Be vigilant with door handles and switches.
6. Don’t smoke.
7. Wash your hands every 20 minutes with foaming soap for at least 20 seconds.
8. Do not touch your face.
9. Eat fresh fruit and vegetables to assure your intake of vitamins and minerals. Wash them carefully with lemon juice or vinegar.
10. Animals do not spread the virus, however, the virus can attach to their fur.
11. Avoid catching the common flu as it can weaken your immune system.
12. Avoid having cold drinks
