Common Sense tips for dealing with the Corona Virus, Flu and Common Cold

Here are some common sense tips for dealing with the Corona Virus, flu and common cold.  The same precautions and supplements can be used for all of these viruses. Everyone should be practicing these easy steps every day to help prevent spread of colds, flu, and the Corona virus.

Wash you hands properly!

Most of us wash our hands often during cold and flu season, but many do not wash properly.  The CDC states that proper washing of your hands is more effective than hand sanitizers.

You should wash your hands often, properly, and especially before touching your face, nose, eyes, food or food preparation surfaces.

Take a minute and watch the video below for a simple 1 minute way to properly wash your hands.

Think before you touch!

Some of the most common contaminated surfaces are:

  • door knobs
  • elevator buttons
  • escalator hand rails
  • bathroom door handles
  • light switches
  • airplanes-seat belts, tray tables, tv screens
  • other peoples hands

Things to do on a daily basis

  1. Eat healthy food, limit prepared foods, fast food
  2. Stay hydrated
  3. Get a good night’s sleep
  4. Decrease stress
  5. Do not have the TV or radio on all day long listening to the same news cycle over and over
  6. Enjoy each day, this stressful time will pass

Some statistics to think about

We take for granted that people die each year from flu, car accidents, overdoses.  Look at the numbers, and then put into perspective where you live, how you live and what is your exposure to the Corona Virus.  Statistically, you probably have a lower chance of being exposed to and catching the Corona virus than any of the following causes of death.

  • While the impact of flu varies, it places a substantial burden on the health of people in the United States each year. CDC estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9 million – 45 million illnesses, between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 61,000 deaths annually since 2010. https://www.cdc.gov/
  • Traffic Deaths in US exceed 40,000 for Third Straight Year . Bloomberg.com

70,237 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States in 2017. The age-adjusted rate of overdose deaths increased significantly by 9.6% from 2016 (19.8 per 100,000) to 2017 (21.7 per 100,000). Opioids—mainly synthetic opioids (other than methadone)—are currently the main driver of drug overdose deaths. www.cdc.gov
