The dangerous and deadly coronavirus that attacks quickly has been flooding the media.

While only a few cases have been reported in the United States, people all over the world have been diagnosed daily since the original outbreak in Wuhan, China.

So as parents, we need to be prepared to protect our family the best we can. But how exactly do we do that?

Business Insider has reported on the gravity of the situation saying:

Since the first case of the coronavirus was reported in December 2019, it has killed at least 2,760 people and infected more than 81,000 in 41 countries.”

Those are some alarming numbers!

As of now there is no pharmaceutical that has the power to fight the persistent virus, reports the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, but we may not need one.

Many naturopathic doctors are trying to protect families by suggesting vitamins and herbs as a defense against coronavirus.

For example, some medical professional urged patients to take extracts of oregano oil, Mullen leaf, garlic, and elderberry, reports Business Insider.

These supplements generally are harmless and have no contraindications with other prescribed medications.

As with any medical advice, consult your doctor about any new medical treatments or beginning a new supplement.

However, there has been a vitamin that practitioners all over the United States are raving about to combat COVID-19.

Vitamin C! Especially when it is combined with vitamin D3.

You may already have bottles of vitamin C on standby for when your little ones start to sniffle, or anytime you visit the germ pool they call a children’s museum, but it is able to do so much more for you.

A nurse practitioner from the Love Medical Clinic in Colorado has taken to YouTube to inform viewers their approach to Coronavirus is the same as addressing the flu – with high dose shots of vitamin D3 and IV infusions of vitamin C megadoses.

She said:

“If you have a flu-like disease, I’m just gonna treat you with vitamin C. I’m not gonna swab your nose to see if you have influenza A or B. I don’t care, the treatment is actually the same.”

Dr. Peter Osborne of the Gluten Free Society recommends to his thousands of YouTube followers to prepare yourself against the coronavirus by strengthening the immune system through high doses of vitamin C and vitamin D.

Similarity, Dr. Andrew W. Saul recommended to his vast population of YouTube followers to take megadoses of vitamin C to fight viral infections and strengthen the immune system so you don’t catch the infection in the first place.

Dr. Saul said:

It’s a good idea to strengthen the immune system because that’s all you’ve got. To fight a virus, if you don’t have a specific anti-viral, if you don’t have a vaccination for it, you have to rely on your immune system.”

Consuming these vitamins is not a sure bet that you won’t contract COVID-19 if you come into contact with it, but it will give you and your family a step ahead.

Consult a naturopathic medical professional if you plan on giving your children doses of vitamins that exceed the recommended daily amount as set forth by the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Research Council/ National Academy of Sciences.

If you aren’t already taking vitamin C or vitamin D, begin the RDA immediately to begin building up your immune system.

Although these measures have been proven effective in many cases, they are no comparison to the efficacy of proper hand washing and hygiene.

By far, the best prevention against contracting a virus is to avoid people who are sick, keep your hands away from your face, and wash your hands frequently.

We pray the virus is contained quickly and no other people are harmed, but in the time being we must do our part to protect our families through these easy home strategies.
