We are living an unknown scenario due to the coronavirus and COVID-19, that is why leading a healthy lifestyle, acquiring new habits and learning how to prepare home and natural remedies, is more recommended than ever.
Coronaviruses are viruses that can cause disease in animals and humans. In humans, they are known to cause respiratory infections with varying degrees of severity, from feeling no symptoms to death due to complications and other causes.
COVID-19 is a disease caused by the coronavirus, with some main symptoms that are fever, dry cough and fatigue, instead there are very varied secondary symptoms: nasal congestion, headache, conjunctivitis, rhinitis, diarrhea, loss of taste and smell, skin rashes, etc. At present, it is considered a pandemic that affects the vast majority of countries in the world.
I have no training in medicine, pharmacy or nutrition, I am just going to write about my personal experience, so that some of these home remedies can help other people with COVID-19.
First of all, it is important to clarify that they are not medicines, they are not miracle potions and they have not cured me, my own body has healed. Instead, they have served to make me feel a little better and alleviate certain symptoms.
COVID-19 is one of the diseases caused by the coronavirus. Although the main symptoms are fever, dry cough and fatigue, they can vary greatly depending on each person, from cases without symptoms, that is, asymptomatic, others with a sensation of allergies, rhinitis, conjunctivitis, skin reactions, others related to the digestive system with diarrhea. vomiting and general malaise and a long etc.
In my case, I have not had a fever and both the fatigue and the occasional dry cough, I have only felt them in the last few days. My process started with a very strong allergic rhinitis, that is, itchy eyes, nose and a lot of sneezing, which lasted about a week. From then on, the symptoms of rhinitis have persisted, but new ones have appeared, such as a very severe headache, fatigue, inability to think clearly, and total loss of taste and smell.
With this I confirm what is being seen every day, each person must live their process and what helps some people, others not. In addition to the symptoms, other pathologies, lifestyle, age, etc. must be taken into account. Therefore, it is best to be attentive and take care of yourself, without becoming obsessed, since a good mental state is essential to avoid getting sick.
Here come several questions, does the mental state and mood of a person influence when it comes to getting sick or a sick person, period? Does the body heal itself or does it heal with a medicine? To get vaccinated or not? Are the coronavirus and COVID-19 here because the great powers like China, Russia or the US want to control us? Has it happened just because? Have the universe and nature pounded the table to say enough?
Ufff … there are many questions, difficult or impossible to answer, perhaps without foundation, with many nuances that touch on many topics: ideologies, beliefs, fears … Just fear! Fear is one of the main feelings that diseases generate, fear of the unknown and of what is not controlled.
And second round of questions, is fear being used for political or economic purposes? Is that fear being played with a lack of truthful information? Is that fear being enhanced with excessive information based on more fear?
I wish the answers were clearer. At the moment, I only have my own life experience with the coronavirus, with COVID-19 and with some things that I read that resonate with me, such as a text by Enric Corbera, a precursor of biodecoding .
Enric Corbera in a text on his website talks about times of change, upheaval and uncertainty with different effects and meanings for each person and for society as a whole.
If coincidences do not exist, what is the meaning of the current situation? What change does life demand of us? What should we learn from it?
In addition to the personal reflection of each one @, in which each person will see and change what they can, there are simple home and natural remedies that help with some symptoms of COVID-19.
First of all, there are many recommendations prior to the disease, a pity that they are not promoted as much as they should and that there is no more information in the news and programs, as with everything negative or morbid. Do not forget that the main recommendation is that each person takes responsibility for their health, since there are many things that can be done to be as healthy as possible.
Use Of The Mask.
In the follow-up that they have been doing me from the health or trackers (they have called me 2 times), they have stressed me ad nauseam not to leave the house, to take a paracetamol or an antihistamine and to only go to a hospital if symptoms get worse. Something that, thanks to the universe, has not happened. After 10 days, no more tests are done and, according to them, normal life can be led.
The home remedies that are collected here have the positive properties for the body that the ingredients that compose them have. As I said at the beginning, they are not medicines and they do not pretend to be, but to alleviate some of the symptoms of COVID-19.
