So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
As a Registered Nurse, we learned that proper handwashing breaks the chain of disease transmission. Hand sanitizer is to be utilized as a secondary resource for cleaning hands.
Use paper towels as a barrier when opening doors and turning on/off faucets when in public. Take the hand sanitizer with you along with folded paper towels.
I just read a blog post from a man who worked with abnormal Upper Respiratory symptoms and didn’t seek medical treatment until he had severe chest congestion. He had a runny nose for 4 days, which is not normal. And yes, he tested positive for the Coronavirus. Please seek immediate medical treatment for any flu-like symptoms.
The Immune System requires adequate nutrition to function. Eat healthy…plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Cook your own food…fast food has little to no nutrients. If you can eat a plant-based diet with fresh fruits and veggies, nuts, and legumes, it boosts the ability of the body to fight off or to contend with diseases. Ditch the dairy products. Forget about sugary, high-fat, and high caloric foods. If ice cream is your weakness, buy your favorite fresh fruit and So Delicious Non-dairy whip, chop the fruit and freeze, or purchase frozen fruit, blend together with the non-dairy whip, freeze until firm but not rock solid, and blend again. Use light Agave Nectar if you need a sweetener.
We can also do our part in self-care by seeking the facts from professional sources. Many unqualified people are posting their opinions on the internet.
cdc.gov is the link that gives up-to-date statistics and information on every disease.
Stay healthy…by praying, trusting in God, and doing your part to take care of your body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit…fear and anxiety harm the Mind/Body and diminish our faith and trust in God.
God hears and always answers our prayers. Stay in His presence by praying without ceasing.
