The flu is, as most of us
know, a virus, which cannot
be treated with antibiotics.
You instead have to take
care of yourself and get
plenty of rest and peace.
I have just landed in Malaga, coming
from Mexico. My trip involved three
different planes. I almost felt that I was
traveling on a space station, because I saw
everywhere, both among passengers and
the flight crew, people wearing respiratory
masks, presumably because of the
dangerous Corona virus, which according
to WHO is threatening the world’s
health. I did not feel any appeal to talk to
any of these people as I usually do during
these long flights. Perhaps it was because
I felt that they would rather be left alone
behind their small masks, or perhaps it
was because I felt anxious as to whether
or not I would be able to understand
them through it.
The coming weeks will most likely be
a fanfare of warnings to instill fear in us
about this virus.
because I am not quite sure how well a
mask can protect you against virus and
bacteria, but I do know how much a
strong immune system can do. I also had
a strong urge to ask what else they were
doing to improve their immune system.
The flu is commonly a winter ailment,
which is always commonly found in the
entire world throughout these months.
There is luckily a lot you can do personally
to protect yourself against the flu
virus or lessen it if you are attacked. So
perhaps you could use this time to also
do some good for yourself and your
Maybe it was a good idea that I did
not talk to any of the people in masks,
The flu gives you a fever, often a
relatively high one, between 38 and
40 degrees, with headaches and
pains in both muscles and joints.
Accompanying the flu is often a dry
cough and an uneasy and weird sleep
with fever dreams. It is often seen
that when the flu has passed, that
you might experience an insufferable
tiredness afterwards. The flu is spread
through the air, often by coughs and
sneezes, via the nose, lungs, and hands.
You can inadvertently infect other people,
as it is possible to spread the disease
already a day before you personally
start to show any symptoms. This
is likewise true for when your flu fever
has stopped, then you are still able to
infect people at least one day after. Be
mindful that kids can be contagious
multiple days after they have become
When you eat basifying foods then your
health will improve immediately. Fruits
are great and healthy, but many of them
contain quite a bit of fructose. If you
have somewhat control over your internal
acid/base concentration, then fruits
are not a problem, however if this is not
the case, then you should be careful of
eating too many fruits. There are some
fruits which are basifying, such as lemon,
grapefruit, watermelon, and avocado.
The avocado is among my favorites. It
goes well in the blender and is great for
things such as cholesterol and the heart,
containing many healthy fats. I personally
think you should enjoy all kinds
of fruits, such as cherries, blueberries,
plums etc. They are incredibly rich in
antioxidants, as long as you remember
to consume plenty of base vegetables.
The most basifying vegetables are cucumbers,
celery sticks, green and red peppers,
kale, spinach, and broccoli. They
all contain proteins, minerals, vitamins,
antioxidants, and fatty acids. Please do
remember the cucumber, it is one of the
most basifying vegetables I know, and
it is really great both in your juicer and
blender, as it contains so much water. It
is really great for your skin.
It is best to have plenty of them in the
house, so you do not have to go grocery
shopping when you figure out what you
want to eat. Basic vegetables help you
combat unwanted bacteria and viruses.
They are easily absorbable by the body.
The celery also deserves a mention as
I feel that many people avoid it due to
its slightly bitter taste, but it certainly is
among the top immune system boosters.
It is especially good for things such as
osteoporosis and heart problems, it is
also cholesterol lowering.
Remember to drink plenty of water,
preferably 2 liters daily. If you have
caught the flu, then you have to be especially
mindful of getting enough water.
Many young people never drink clean
water, but instead only get the water
available in the different soft drinks.
Make sure that your breakfast contains a
healthy vegetable juice.
Avoid or lessen your coffee intake. I
have read about basic coffee, but I do not
have any experience with it. You should
rather have an herbal tea or a glass of
water with lemon. You can also drink
unsweetened soya milk or almond milk.
I discovered joyfully that the Starbucks in
the airports sell both warm soya milk and
warm unsweetened almond milk. The
latter tasted wonderfully, and I strongly
recommend it, if you want a cozy drink
without absolutely needing coffee.
To have the best possibility
of preventing different kinds
of flu viruses, is it important
to be mindful of your diet. Eat
plenty of vegetables, as it will
help you lower your acidity.
• As always, you should prioritize a high-quality multivitamin/
• Good essential fats of a high quality.
• Extra vitamin-C is a necessity in these times. It is difficult to give
an exact dosage, as we all have our individual needs. I myself,
take 2 – 3 grams daily. I take a product with bioflavonoids. The
vitamin-C is more absorbable when taken together with bioflavonoids.
Bioflavonoids is also called vitamin-P. It is found
naturally in the pulp from fruits and vegetables. Vitamin-C
does, among other things, protect the body against bacteria
and viruses. If I feel that I might be getting an infection, then I
instantly increase my vitamin-C dosage. If you have been taking
a high dosage of vitamin-C and wishes to decrease it again, then
downgrade the dosage slowly, as the body adjusts to the high
• Many people lack vitamin-D. Having a good vitamin-D status is
also a great defense against viruses. It significantly increases the
immune system. If you are in doubt, then you can have your
vitamin-D levels measured in a laboratory. Be especially mindful
of your vitamin-D level if you are taking cholesterol medication.
• Magnesium has a great importance in the immune system. The
immune system’s T-cells needs magnesium in the formation of
“killer cells”, be especially mindful of your magnesium levels
if you suffer from diabetes. It has been shown that people with
diabetes often have lower levels of magnesium in their body.
• I have to mention the name of a newcomer called Omniimmune
from the company Biosym. It contains EpiCor, which
is an ingredient based on fermented yeast.
EpiCor can be defined as a whole food ferment, meaning that
EpiCor consists of natural ingredients in small doses, such as
beta-glucan proteins, fiber, polyphenols, vitamins, amino acids,
and many other metabolites. It is fermented in a way, where
the yeast is used to extract the many nutrients. Together with
the added zinc, is this product a good help to maintain your
• Glutathione is formed by three amino acids, glutamine,
cysteine, and glycine. It has many protective effects and several
important functions in the immune system, as it regenerates the
immune cells. Glutathione is normally found in all cells of the
body, but there are especially large concentrations of it in the
liver, spleen, pancreas, and kidneys. It is considered one of the
most important antioxidants, and aids vitamin-C with its work.
It is used in many anti-ageing treatments. If you take other medications,
then you should consult with your doctor before trying
out a treatment with glutathione, as other medication can react
to the product.
Prevention is always a better cure. This
was drilled into us nursing students 45
years ago, and it still holds true to this
day. It can be difficult to abide by every
day, but we have to do our best to stay
happy, healthy, and strong no matter
our age or infirmities. A great daily
exercise is to think of all the things you
can be grateful for.
Fear is our worst enemy, so force your
thoughts to see all the good things
around you, instead of always fearing
the worst. Fear affects, among other
things, digestion, and you attract what
you fear. Remember what you are
attracting. People who always speak of
disease, will invariably attract disease.
Florence Scovel Shinn writes in her
book “learn to play the game of life”,
you can only absorb bacteria, when
you are vibrating on the same wavelength
as the bacteria, and fear pulls
people down to the bacterial level.
Remember to exercise. Use the kind of
exercise you find most suited for you
personally. If you do not get any exercise
regularly, then start with a walk,
which you can quietly increase at your
own pace. If you have trouble walking
or require a bit of support, then a pair
of walking sticks can do wonders. You
can also get professional help to adjust
Make sure you get plenty of quality
sleep in a well-ventilated room without
your cellphone, computer, or TV etc.
Avoid sleeping pills, but instead have a
cup of chamomile tea. You could also
preferably have a bit of positive and
beautiful reading to sleep on.
Keep a good hand hygiene. There exist
many fine disinfectants for the hands,
which can be used in many contexts.
