  1. Coronavirus: When should you see a doctor?

    If you’re coughing or have a fever, or think you may have been exposed to coronavirus, it’s hard to know exactly what to do. 

    For one, doctors are tightening up their schedules… and some are even closing their doors.  

    What’s more, you may be hesitant to walk into an emergency room or urgent care center for fear of exposing yourself on the chance you DON’T have it. 

    On the flip side, should you be infected, you don’t want to go outside exposing others – especially healthcare workers.  

    That’s why I wanted to share with you a new report today. 

    It finds that if you are experiencing THESE warning signs, it’s absolutely time to seek medical attention... 

    Here’s when it’s time to seek medical attention  

    As I’ve mentioned before in Health e-Tips, some COVID-19 patients may experience no symptoms… while others have severe symptoms. 

    So, there’s been a lot of uncertainty as to WHEN you should seek medical attention. 

    If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, or have a fever, cough, runny nose, or sore throat, you should stay home and call your doc. 

    Around 80 percent of those infected will experience mild symptoms – and they can recover from the virus by just staying home and protecting healthcare workers. 

    However, according to a recent report, if you experience any of the follow – you should seek medical attention IMMEDIATELY: 

    • Trouble breathing 
    • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest 
    • New confusion or inability to arouse 
    • Bluish lips or face 

    Call 911 if you experience ANY of these emergency warning signs, and notify the operator that you might have COVID-19. 

    And of course, don’t be afraid to call your doc for a check-in if you’re experiencing any concerning symptoms; there’s no harm in being cautious, and lots to gain when it comes to your peace of mind!  

  2. Ibuprofen for coronavirus? You MUST read this

    After decades on the market, and decades of being mainstream medicine’s “go-to” we know exactly how NSAIDs works.  

    Ibuprofen, a well-known NSAID, is STILL causing the same old laundry list of common side effects: 

    • Stomach ulcers 
    • Dizziness 
    • Heartburn 
    • Liver problems 
    • Leg swelling 

    And worst of all 

    A new report has just revealed taking these common anti-inflammatory drugs could WORSEN the symptoms of the deadly coronavirus, aka COVID-19. 

    Ibuprofen isn’t worth the risk 

    Go to the store right now… just about any store… and you’ll see specific items are flying off the shelves. 

    Among the most popular items sought out by desperate shoppers are: 

    • Hand sanitizer; 
    • Toilet paper; 
    • Clorox wipes; 
    • Disinfectant spray; 
    • Vitamins; 
    • Cough syrup; 
    • And ibuprofen!  

    But according to the latest report… you shouldn’t be so quick to pick up that last bottle.. 

    See, it’s been long known that anti-inflammatories can have a depressive effect on our immune systems 

    And when we take ibuprofen during a cold, we don’t really have to worry about the slight – but important – reduction in our immune response because it’s very unlikely that you could die from a cold. 

    But the exact OPPOSITE could go for the coronavirus… 

    We need our immune system in top working order to fight and WIN the battle against this deadly virus. 

    Anti-inflammatories block our immune system’s ability to release cells called mast cells, which are the body’s first line of defense against the virus! 

    Normally, when the mast cells come into contact with the virus, they trigger an immune response – leading to inflammatory chemicals being released and tackling the foreign invader. 

    But if you take an NSAID like ibuprofen, your body is unable to release these inflammatory chemicals… which, as you probably can guess, leads to a higher risk of complications.  

    You don’t even need NSAIDs 

    The dark truth is that you might not even need NSAIDs. 

    For instance, if you are taking ibuprofen to overcome a fever caused by the common cold or in most cases it’s more effective to let the fever run its course. 

    In fact, previous studies have found that actually INCREASE the severity of the common cold or pneumonia. 

    A fever is your body turning up the heat to incinerate bacteria and viruses. It’s an entirely NORMAL immune response. 

    Folks, there are better and SAFER alternatives out that WON’T put you at risk… 

    The government of Shanghai, China is reportedly recommending vitamin C as an all-natural alternative to reducing the symptoms of coronavirus. 

     

    Remember, vitamin C is essential for a strong immune defense.  

     

    It’s easy enough to bump up the amount you’re getting by paying attention to your diet. Eating a wide variety of fruits and veggies like bell peppers, dark and leafy greens, kiwi, broccoli, strawberries, tomatoes, peas, papayas, citrus fruits, and apples will give you a boost. 

    And if you want to ensure you’re getting enough, purchase a high-quality supplement online or at your local pharmacy. I recommend taking 500mg twice a day.
