Some things are out of our control, but we can trust God has complete control of this pandemic and do what we can for ourselves, our loved ones, medical staff, first responders and the economy!

Until a vaccine is available, our immune systems will need to fight COVID-19. The immune system is the body’s multi-level defense network against potentially harmful bacteria, viruses and other organisms.

How you can make a difference: A healthy lifestyle helps one’s immune system to be in the best shape possible to tackle viruses. Having a strong immune system will help fight the virus but it’s better to stop them from entering the body in the first place.

The immune system plays an important role in controlling the replication and infection of coronavirus. We have been posting a lot of little choices that help boost up your immune system. If there is another wave of cases come fall, the one thing that is under our control is making our bodies healthier.

We may not control what’s going on in the world right now, but we can control our nutrition. When we are healthier, our bodies can better fight off any viruses. Our nutrition will support our physical, mental, and emotional resilience. 

Many supplements and natural alternative treatments are being promoted to prevent or treat coronavirus (COVID-19). Although none have been proven to work, some have shown potential benefits. 

Here are a few you may want to add into your daily diet. We’ve linked them to our recent posts to help you better understand why these natural items can help us fight off colds, flu and viruses.

Vitamin C
Vitamin D
Turmeric and Curcumin

Dig Deeper: COVID-19 Inhibitors – Recent Research

Scientists are working furiously to uncover effective approaches to combat this coronavirus.

Research published in late February used computer analysis to assess which drug and natural compounds have the potential to inhibit COVID-19. (Note: these are neither in vivo nor in vitro experiments for COVID-19, although such studies are currently underway).

Potential anti-coronavirus therapies can be divided into two categories depending on the target, one is acting on the human immune system or human cells, and the other is on coronavirus itself. 

The following is a curated list of potential inhibitors from this study. (Source)
