CORONA 19? DRINK GINGER TEA TO STRENGTHEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

News reports have caused the public to fear high infection rate of Corona 19 Virus, and no cure has yet been developed.  These days the WHOLE WORLD IS WORRIED BECAUSE OF CORONA 19 VIRUS.

Though people worldwide have been hospitalized with a CONFIRMED DIAGNOSIS of Corona 19, HEALTHY ADULTS will be protected and healed by antibodies in our own  immune system, even for viruses, within 10-21 days   However, it is fatal for people with weak immune systems or basal diseases (ie. heart disease, pulmonary disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes)

LET’S NOT BE AFRAID, but ACTIVELY PREPARE  for Corona 19.
Since the virus is weak against heat… let’s make our bodies ‘WARM”

GINGER fights colds by keeping our bodies WARM.
GINGER is both a spice and a ANTI IMFLAMATORY, HOLISTIC healing aid.
GINGER is good for CHRONIC indigestion, and effective in releaving PAIN.
GINGER has similar effectiviness, as anti inflamatory drugs.
Always try GINGER TEA before taking pain killers.

When our body temperature goes down by 1 centigrade degree,  our immune system decreases by more than 30%, making us VULNERABLE to disease.

GINGER STIMULATES ADRENALINE BY CREATING AN ADRENALINE RUSH, AND BLOOD CIRCULATION TO HELP WARM THE BODY.  What’s important is that the ingredients in ginger INCREASE the number of white blood cells in your body.   It makes the body warm, DETOXIFYING the organs and PURIFYING the lymphatic system.  (When I myself catch a cold, I always drink GINGER TEA to raise my body temperature.)

It kills the virus that causes colds and controls infections.  It also eliminates SORE THROAT.  Also, the spiciness of ginger  helps to  remove phlegm and one to STOP coughing.

‘These days the WHOLE WORLD IS WORRIED BECAUSE OF CORONA 19.

THE PERFECT DRINK FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR IS GINGER TEA.
Let’s drink apx 3 cups per day.

RECIPE FOR GINGER TEA:
wash a large ginger root, slice in to small pieces,  apx 1 fist full or 10 oz,  and add to 1 gallon of water.    Place pot on stove and raise to boiling temp, then lower temp to medium to simmer for 15 minutes.    You may add honey or agave to taste, as ginger can be a “spicy” flavor.

Another method is adding grated fresh ginger root directly in your cup of tea.

IMPORTANT – You must drink “ginger tea” as a HOT beverage (not at cool temperature)

Please note:   DO NOT DRINK GINGER TEA, if you are currently suffering from high fever or swollen tonsils, because it has a “warm” character effect and you already are hot from fever.

THERE’S NO NEED TO PANIC.   We can protect ourselves by hand washing, keeping our immune system healthy and before we know it, Corona 19 will be history (goodbye Corona 19!)

Allergies? Sinus Problems?

allergies

Do you struggle during this time of year because you have allergies and sinus problems? Many of us who live here suffer during this time of year and that is unfortunate because we can’t enjoy the view with itchy watery eyes, asthma, stuffy nose, and an itchy throat.  Allergies and sinus problems make our quality of life poor when we should be enjoying the green and sunshine.

Well the good news is, Acupuncture can help with Allergies and Sinus Problems also!sinuses

Sinuses are the pockets in the skull connected to the nasal passages, and when an allergen is breathed in, a histamine reaction occurs and there is swelling of the mucous membranes inside the passages. This causes havoc on the nose, behind the eyes, and down into the ears and throat. The sinuses becomes clogged with mucus that may even drip down the throat and into the lungs and stomach causing phlegm, congestion, and cough. This is what occurs when you have allergies. It is very uncomfortable and can not only cause a lot of fatigue but the medication to relieve the symptoms also can cause fatigue.  So instead of lounging out doors in the sunlight with a green view, people end up sleeping more and having less fun.  Here is where the persons quality of life decreases. Allergies can even make sleeping an issue because it can cause  headache, congestion and cough when lying down even worse than when standing.

This is no way to live! If you want relief and the methods you have tried haven’t worked, and you are tired of buying medications that make you drowsy or don’t work well, maybe it’t time to try Acupuncture.

Acupuncture works in many ways to get rid of allergies. To start, Acupuncture will  improve your immune system to prevent the allergens from being able to enter the body easily. It will help your body become stronger to have less illness caused by allergies. It  can also reduce inflammation within the nasal passages, sinuses and respiratory tract to relieve the symptoms of your allergies.

Many people wonder how Acupuncture could do that within the body. The process of Acupuncture is effective because it effects the Qi flow in the body and helps the body become in balance so that its functioning is smooth and strong. The body is programmed with the ability to heal itself, but sometimes things that happen to our bodies block that ability, or we rely too much on medications to heal us or stop the symptoms of a problem, and by doing so, the body loses its ability to heal itself naturally. Acupuncture works by triggering nerves and energy flow in the body,as directed by the practitioner,to assist the body to repair itself more efficiently.

Acupuncture attacks allergies from all angles to make them occur less often, have a shorter duration of effect, and hopefully get rid of them altogether.  Acupuncture can also relieve the symptoms of allergies so that, while your body gets stronger, you will feel better.
