Home treatment

Strong immune should be built before falling sick, but there are some things you can do to help your body fight after you caught the virus. 

Rest a lot 

Don’t strain your already depleted body resources and let your immune use as much energy as possible against the virus. Avoid mental activity and screens and sleep longer to allow for better restoration

Drink a lot of water

Dehydration is one of the dangers that can happen during an immune response. You may feel less thirsty, but constant liquid supply is necessary for metabolism and removal of toxins from your body. During fever, you’ll perspire more, so even more water will be lost from the body. Dehydrated, you make the fighting task of your immune system less effective, so pay extra attention to your water intake. 

Nutrition 

During illness, appetite often gets deregulated and you risk getting malnourished. But in reality, your body consumes more resources during fight with the virus, so you should pay double care to get all the essential vitamins and minerals as well as macros for speedy recovery. Eat fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and make sure to include enough protein in your diet. 


Extra tip:

ginger tea for immune system and coronavirus protection

Whenever I get sick, I never take medicine. For years, my only “medicine” is a ginger tea. I recommended it since to many friends and family members as they were sick and each of them reported it helped in fighting a disease a lot. With its strong antiseptic qualities, ginger tea is a must-try to help your immunity. Here is the recipe:

Peel and slice thinly 4-8 cm of old ginger root.

Bring a liter of water to boil and place ginger in the pot.

Boil under lid cover on a medium heat for 15-20 minutes.

Pour the tea in a cup and squeeze juice from one lime or half a lemon.

Drink with a straw while hot (straw will prevent your lips from burning from ginger). Drink just before going to bed and cover with a blanket to ensure you sweat. The tea supposedly removes a lot of toxins with the sweat.
