The best way to protect yourself from the Covid19 is by following the general practice for preventing the virus. These include:
Good personal health and hygiene habits
- Washing your hands often.
- Covering nose and mouth whilst sneezing/coughing.
Avoid contact with anybody known to have the virus
Coronavirus is the most contagious within the first 2-3 days of contraction, if you know of somebody with the virus, wear a face mask, such as the N95 mask around them. Sanitize all surfaces where the virus may be present.
Eat Healthy and keep fit
Eating plenty of fruit and vegetable provides the body with right minerals and vitamins used to build a strong immune system. This will act as a natural barrier to prevent the virus but may not stop it completely.
Drink 6-8 glasses of water per day, this will keep you well hydrated and flush out the bad toxins in your body leading to a better immune system.
Exercise of low to high intensity is the main key to a healthy immune system and should not be overlooked. Overall fitness not only acts as a natural barrier against disease but aids recovery too!
Try to stay stress free. This may sound hard to do but meditation, hypnosis or other relaxation techniques are proven to reduce illness and boost the body’s natural immune system.
