COVID-19: Best practices to keep you and your loved ones safe

COVID-19: Best practices to keep you and your loved ones safe

Here are my own (Dr. Sievert) recommendations

#1 Reduce stress and get sufficient sleep

This is now more important than ever. Your immune system regenerates itself during sleep, in particular the hours from 1-5 a.m.

#2 Exercise moderately

Also important for normal immune function and to boost organ perfusion and oxygenation.

#3 Eat whole foods

Exclusively organic as always, with focus on these foods:

  • liver, for its high vitamin A content
  • citrus fruits and red peppers for vitamin C
  • fermented foods to support a healthy and diverse microbiome
  • green smoothies daily to get those phytonutrients in a concentrated form. I like to add colostrum powder
    (bovine colostrum has been found to be effective at preventing the flu and it significantly reduces the number of episodes and hospitalizations for respiratory infections in children. You can purchase bovine colostrum as a powder or capsule; just choose a supplement from grass-fed, hormone-free, and antibiotic-free cows)

#4 If you were a smoker or vaper, now is the time to quit

Your risk to die from the pneumonia caused by either the flu or the corona-virus goes up considerably if you keep the habit going.

#5 Keep your body alkaline

By starting your day with 16 ounces of clean filtered water with a freshly squeezed lemon in it.

#6 Use a sauna often

The virus doesn’t replicate well above normal body temperature and your immune system works better. Just don’t forget to hydrate.

#7 Supplement

In addition you may choose to support your immune systems ability to fight of the virus with the following supplements. For colds in general:

  • Vitamin C: 2000 mg twice daily
  • Zinc: 50 mg daily
  • Quercetin: 1000 mg twice daily
  • NAC: 600 mg twice daily
  • Vitamin D: 10000 IU daily
  • Bovine colostrum with or without PRP Spray(prolin rich polypeptides): 1 measuring scoop daily and 4 pumps 2-3 times daily respectively
  • Colloidal Silver: 1 tsp 3 x daily, swish, gargle and swallow

For COVID-19 specifically, as it would gain entry into the cells in your lung via so-called ACE-2 receptors (unfortunately rendering them dysfunctional in the process):

  • Hawthorn: 500 mg twice daily (it is a natural ACE inhibitor and would lead to up-regulation of these receptors).
  • Olive leave extract, Berberine, Cordyceps (to protect the lungs cilia, which you’ll need to clean out phlegm and debris) as in Olivirex, TH1-Support etc.
  • Chinese skullcap, DGL, Elder(leave/bark extract), Cinnamon (to protect ACE-2 receptors) as in TH1-Support, DGL-Plus and Cinnergy
  • Rhodiola, Andrographis, Astragalus, Cordyceps , Curcumin(to reduce autoimmunity) as in Innate Immune Support, TH2 Modulator and CurcuCalm

These supplement choices are not exclusive, you can find all of these ingredients from various brands at your local health food store, but also through Fullscript, the online dispensary linked to my website.

Do make sure these are high quality, certified gluten and dairy free, with no added dyes or unnecessary fillers.
