Please note that we are all in unknown territory. Together, it is up to each of us to take the responsibility to stay on top of these updates as they occur. As the situation remains fluid, some of this data may change as time goes on. We will also be closely monitoring CDC guidelines and making updated adjustments per their recommendations.

- Always be self-aware or your
own symptoms such as body aches, fever, cough, shortness of breath
or just feeling ill. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms
it is important that you seek medical advice and quarantine
yourself, especially from your own family.
- Do your best not to live in fear or anxiety about the situation. Yes, it is a serious matter that requires our attention. However, it is important to note that when we get trapped in a fear response our immune systems shut down in favor of survival mechanisms, which actually further heighten our anxiety! Be wise and discerning about your lifestyle practices and choices, and trust you are doing what you can to keep yourself and your family safe.
- Fresh air is vital to healthy immunity - make a point of getting outside, daily. Even as little as 10 to 15 minutes three times throughout the day will benefit you.
- Rest! Get plenty of sleep and rest.
- Take some time off, perhaps use this time for a personal at-home retreat where you just enjoy some time spent away from work, extra-curricular activities and the hustle and bustle of life. Walks in nature, healthy dinners together with your family, board games, curling up with a good book and limiting your physical contact are all enriching ways to protect yourself from community transmission.
- Increase your consumption of anti-oxidant and nutrient-dense infection-fighting foods like: organic blueberries, raspberries, spinach, sprouts, garlic, onions, ginger, parsley, cilantro, spirulina, celery juice, bone broth and fermented foods and beverages.
- Drink lots of water. Drinking good quality water and herbal teas, staying hydrated, is one of the best things you can do to flush out toxins from your body and help support the immune system.
- Keep your immune system strong by reducing your sugar intake and eating a balanced diet. Avoid eating processed sugars. Sugar weakens the immune system and makes it less able to deal with viruses and bacteria. Be sure to read food labels carefully and to limit the amount of sugar you eat.

- If your symptoms match the viral effects, check with your medical doctor or family practice doctor for best recommendations and testing.
- Get and stay adjusted. A well-adjusted nervous system gives your body the best defense against infectious agents.
Stay healthy, positive and use your common sense!
