In today article, we want to talk about what you would eat if you were diagnosed with COVID-19 coronavirus?
Well, the first thing to know about that is that the pre-existing conditions significantly improve the danger of not in the sensitivity to getting the virus but in the complications and also even the death rate.
I’m talking about heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, and insulin resistance. These are the large ones there are other ones too. Still, all of these have a common denominator, high insulin, and I’m talking about diabetes type 2 right here.
And there’s a straightforward way to deal with this.
Also what you can make is you go on a low amount carb diet, and we’re talking the ketogenic diet moderate protein high fat.
High fats in the diet are excellent to do as long as you keep your carbohydrates low and of course, I always recommend the healthy version of the ketogenic diet.
Getting on the diet will significantly help support healthy insulin levels.
The other things I would do I would start to consume food high in zinc and I want to say that anything I say in this video is not meant to diagnose or replace your medical care or provide treatment for the coronavirus check with your doctor before taking any of this advice.
There’s a massive association between having enough sync in your body and having your immune system work properly almost at every single level of your immune defences zinc is involved and if you wanted to know what foods are highest in zinc oysters are the number one food other shellfish would be another option red meat cheese.
There are other foods, but these have probably the most zinc, zinc is essential in supporting a healthy thymus gland, and the thymus is a training camp for certain immune cells.
So it’s essential, and if you’re deficient in zinc, your thymus shrinks.
The next thing I would do is make sure I have enough vitamin D you can get that in cod liver oil, salmon, fatty fish and also eggs.
If you want to read and get more information about eggs and also know is
egg dairy or meat, can vegans eat eggs and more…
Still, it’s challenging to consume foods and get the amount of vitamin D that you need so I would highly recommend getting enough Sun 20 minutes every single day would give you enough vitamin D.
Because vitamin D is what’s called an immune modulator.
So it keeps the immune system from overreacting where you have so much inflammation and the collateral damage it could damage your lungs and other tissues, so vitamin D is essential in keeping the immune system at a balanced level.
Certain viruses have a strategy of blocking the receptor for vitamin D taking enough vitamin D can override that.
You can keep that immune support at a high level.
And then you have vitamin C essential in supporting a healthy immune system especially dealing with viruses leafy greens will give you a lot of vitamin C sauerkraut.
If you make your sauerkraut or get high-quality sauerkraut from either a farmers market or the health of store, you could get a tremendous amount of vitamin C sometimes 700 milligrams, and all you need is between 70 and 90 milligrams as the RDA.
Of course, that doesn’t account for all types of sauerkraut because there are different versions, but I’m just talking at the high end we’re starting at 700, and it’s probably going to go down from there.
Berries are a good source of vitamin C as well.
There’s a lot of other foods that have vitamin C, but the more you cook meals or you can foods you lose not just vitamin C and vitamin D but zinc too.
Canned foods will deplete the effectiveness of zinc by 85% and by the way if you think that you’re going to consume like orange juice for the vitamin C you’re mistaken because they pasteurize or use high temperatures in cook the orange juice that destroys the vitamin C.
The vitamin C that you would have in that orange juice is usually coming from an added synthetic version vitamin C called ascorbic acid, and it’s my opinion that is not the same as the vitamin C that comes from actual fruits and vegetables.
Lastly, let’s talk about this thing called stress.
I know it might be hard to believe, but some people are stressed out nowadays.
Stress increases cortisol, cortisol chronically elevated as in long-term stress can severely affect your immune system. It causes your lymphatic system to shrink.
It makes your lymph nodes decrease, it decreases the antibody production, so you lose your ability to fight infection. It also greatly increases your susceptibility to getting viruses and bacteria.
I would actively and aggressively do what I can to keep stress at a minimum, and that would include not watching the news so much because there are so many messages that are all about doom and gloom bad news over and over and over fear fear fear guess what that does to the immune system it makes the person way more susceptible to getting the infection as compared to not being in that state of worry and anxiety if you trace it back to right before they got that infection I would say nearly 100% of the time they had a stress event.
Stress is a massive trigger to not only being susceptible to viruses but activating viruses that are already inside your body.
This explains why people when they get stressed they have shingles they get herpes they get all sorts of other health problems.
We have to get on the right diet to minimize these conditions right here, eating foods high in the three most essential nutrients and lowering stress.
I hope you find this blog useful.
