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. Dangerous coronavirus hits the U.S. (How to PROTECT yourself)

    Dangerous coronavirus hits home (How to PROTECT yourself)

    Just when you thought the flu was the only deadly virus making waves around the States… we now have to worry about a new “killer virus.”

    Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of the health-related boogeyman that’s been grabbing headlines.

    The coronavirus.

    This pneumonia-like virus has already killed 17 people and affected hundreds in both its native China and at least six other countries – including the U.S.

    As news continues to spread and death rolls rise, you may begin to worry about how dangerous this virus is.

    That’s why I wanted to reach out to you today…

    Keep reading on to find out what symptoms to look for – and how you can PROTECT yourself and your loved ones from the nasty new kid in town.

    The new deadly outbreak

    You might think that just because you’re not planning to travel to China anytime soon – and don’t know anyone who has – that you’re in the clear.

    But here’s the thing: the coronavirus is well on its way to pandemic proportions…meaning we’re seeing outbreaks in multiple countries around the world (including the U.S., as I mentioned earlier).

    And it can be spread through the air by a cough or sneeze – which means you could catch this virus just about anywhere.

    Not to mention, the coronavirus can even bad passed through objects or surfaces you touch.

    If you have a weakened immune system—particularly seniors and children—you’re the most vulnerable.

    Now, the scariest part of this infection is that it disguises itself as a cold…

    You’ll start with a runny nose, fever, and a sore throat.

    Then next thing you know, you’re down for the count.

    And because it’s a viral infection – and not bacterial – antibiotics won’t touch it.

    If coronavirus takes hold in your body, it could lead to pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure… even death.

    So the first thing I want you to do is make sure to keep track of your symptoms. If you start experiencing any of the following, contact your doctor immediately:

    • Wheezing
    • Shortness of breath
    • Chest tightness

    To avoid coronavirus completely, here are five tips for protecting yourself and your loved ones:

    1. The best defense against any virus is to strengthen your immune system. Taking supplements like vitamin C, zinc, elderberry, transfer factor, Echinacea, and monolaurin can help you to build up your body to keep those germs out of sight.
    2. Numerous studies have proven intravenous vitamin C can battle the common cold and other severe infections. IVC must be administered by a medical professional, so consult a holistic doctor to see what it can do for you.
    3. If you’ve been following along with Health e-Tips you already know a healthy gut is just as important as having a healthy immune system. To balance your gut, try switching to the Paleo diet – eliminating sugars, grains, and processed foods that are known to kick up inflammatory processes in your body. Not only do I recommend Paleo to all my patients, I eat Paleo myself and have enjoyed the benefits firsthand!
    4. Don’t forget to wash your hands! Use plenty of soap and hot water, and don’t forget to wash for at least 20 seconds!

    You should also try to avoid crowds if possible. If you can’t avoid a crowd, try not to stand next to people who are obviously ill. Avoid touching your eyes and mouth until you’ve had a chance to wash your hands, per tip No. 4 above.
