As many of you probably know by now Coronavirus was first detected in China and has now spread to the United States. As of Tuesday, there were two confirmed cases in Fulton County, Atlanta GA.
Coronaviruses are not new. Do you remember the SARS and MERS outbreaks? Similar deal here, new virus in the same family of viruses. It’s very similar to influenza and is primarily spread by respiratory droplets. Should one get it you can expect to experience fever, cough, breathing difficulties, and malaise.
The communities who are likely to experience more severe cases or possible progression to pneumonia are those who already have weakened or compromised immune systems and those who have other chronic health conditions, like cardiovascular disease, COPD, diabetes, kidney diseases, hypertension, and cancer.
This isn’t a cause for alarm or panic, rather for preparation, much in the same way that you’d stay-ready for the flu.
Our Green Juice Recipe includes:
This Week’s Nourishing Herbal Infusion Recipe:
This formula is antiviral, adaptogenic, and improves the functioning of the immune system, lungs, and kidneys. It’s also high in vitamin C.
I use percentages for my formulary so that you can scale the recipe up or down, depending on how much you want to make at a time. You've got to do a little math and get a small kitchen scale if you don't already have one. I've also provided the measurements for making a 1 ounce by weight (not volume) blend.
If already sick with an acute viral or bacterial infection, leave out the Astragalus as it will drive the illness deeper into the body.
Grind the Astragalus Root and Rose Hips to a coarse consistency (almost, but not quite powdered).
Weight herbs and pour 1 ounce by weight total of dried herb into a large pot. Pour ½ gallon fresh boiled hot water over herb. Do not boil. Steep covered overnight. Strain, bottle and enjoy 1-3 cups per day. Repeat. Safe for children, ¼ to ½ cup per day for the kiddos.
P.S. You can learn to take charge of your health with plants inside my Herbal Medicine for the Soul Mentorship Program. In my program, students have gotten off pain, thyroid, and high blood pressure medications. They've also reversed debilitating symptoms, reduced chronic pain, resolved traumas, and started their holistic businesses.
