Being inundated with all kinds of news on the Coronavirus pandemic can be worrying whether you are out working in the field, or dealing with friends and family members.

In order to be able to keep up with the needs in your work and life you want to prevent as much stress over this spreading pandemic as possible.

Besides washing your hands frequently with soap and water, avoiding contact with others and keeping your environments hygienic and clean, the only other major concern is the reality that most of those who have reported to have died from this COVID-19 already had some health issues such as smoker’s lungs and obesity.

Therefore leading a healthy lifestyle, including exercise, stretching, meditation or other ways to stay active, fit, and centred are all vital in sustaining a strong immune system and physical constitution.

That is why I am bringing up some tried and true — yet often overlooked — tips for ensuring your best wellness inside and out.

Many things that are considered safe or ordinary for consumption, can have the power to hold back your resilience, physical energy, overall health and well-being, as well as your prevention or ability to recover from viruses, diseases and stressful periods of work.

The following is a list, in no particular order, of the things to avoid first and then the things to consider to consume for general well-being and a better balanced pH against mainstream standards.

This ensures it is easier to stay on the right track in your work, life and happiness with a stronger constitution.

Afterwards I also provide an easy-to-implement process for purifying your tap water as well as refer you to a health expert and PhD in this field for more free tips.

Things to avoid

  • Tap water with high fluoride content (tips to purify following)
  • Chemical-filled toothpaste (many natural options now available)
  • Filler calcium (found in processed foods, medical shots and supplements)
  • Mercury tooth fillings (if you have them)
  • Highly GMO foods (you can tell if the seeds of the fruit or area around them seems strange or semi-rotten in the entire batch)
  • Highly processed foods, like TV dinners, fast food, or mainstream snacks
  • Trans fats or hydrogenated oils (also avoid smoking/burning other oils)
  • Refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, glucose-fructose and chemical sugar alternatives
  • Artificial; colours, flavours, preservatives, etc…
  • Alcohol as well as tobacco, and reduce caffeine where possible
  • Avoid foods based on white flour or wheat where possible
  • Avoid consuming too many high levels of sodium from various foods
  • Mainstream energy drinks, filled with many chemicals and potentially unhealthy substances
  • Unnecessary or non-standard medical shots (often filled with heavy filler chemicals, that can cause general issues, so choose wisely)
  • Avoid antibiotics unless it is a total last resort as they can be detrimental to your physiologically optimal state; instead work on prevention beforehand where possible through a healthier lifestyle with a positive, proactive and strong attitude.

Better Consumables

  • Spring water (from local spring, well water also tends to be better than city water)
  • Chlorella, wheatgrass, spirulina and cilantro clean out mercury (cutting out fish is impractical but bigger fish have more mercury) along with seaweed and other foods with high levels of chlorophyl
  • Organic food or food without pesticides in particular should be eaten
  • Use saltwater instead for mouthwash (and avoid chemical additives, aspartame, etc…)
  • Raw cacao
  • Raw organic lemon juice
  • Garlic, the more the better (check the source of the garlic as well)
  • Raw apple cider vinegar (other kinds of natural vinegar can also work like brown rice vinegar, etc…)
  • Oregano oil
  • Green leafy veggies and high fibre foods
  • Chicken liver, eggs, cheese, butter, Japanese nattö, sauerkraut, fish eggs, shellfish
  • Beets, Tamarind, Turmeric, Bardock root, Reishi mushroom, etc…
  • Probiotics like kefir, traditional cheeses, yogurt, kimchi and tempeh
  • Tea (particularly green, herbal, or alternative), meditation and relaxation

Water Filtration Process

There is of course more to avoid and more good things to consume, but that was just a list to point some of the more under-appreciated points.

One major issue is tap water where the quality can vary from location to location, and even the time of day, current weather or how busy it happens to be in terms of water use for that day in your city or region.

Fortunately, what you can ensure consistently for water quality is a process to filter it yourself that is easy to implement but effectively cleans the water against the chemical and physical properties of your source H2O.

Here is that process:

1. If you have a water filtering system, like those that implement filters in the top of a pitcher strained into the bottom half (Brita, etc…), filter a large portion of water this way first, otherwise move onto the next step.

2. Pour your (filtered) water into an electric or large kettle, and proceed to bring the water to a boil.

3. After water has boiled (and preferably cooled down) proceed to pour the top 2/3rds or less of the water into another container with an open cap or lid. (You don’t use the water at the bottom in case your source contains fluoride which concentrates at the bottom of a boiling pot).

4. Set that bottle or container of water to sit for at least 24 hours in an area with reasonably clean air (avoid dusty or dirty areas) without a cap on

5. After 24 hours the chlorine in the water will have evaporated so now you are ready to pour and enjoy the water however you plan to consume it.

The above process will get you nearly distilled results, without the challenge of having to genuinely distill water. Give it a try for yourself and compare your water cleaned with the above process with your straight tap water and you will notice it tastes completely different!

On top of consistent hand washing, hygiene, keeping environments clean, avoiding contact, unnecessary meeting or events with people where there are chances of spreading the virus airborne; your chances of preventing infection and death from this pandemic will greatly improve for you and your close ones when you apply the above.
