Well, this week it's all about the Corona Virus, and people going crazy to buy hand sanitiser, so before I get stuck into how you should be strengthening your immunity I'll just remind you that nearly all shop bought products are anti-bacterial, which is pretty useless to protect against a virus.
A natural and strong anti-viral is tea tree essential oil, you'll most likely have to buy from online now but one bottle will have over 200 drops in it so you'll have plenty. You pop some drops into your soap, sanitiser, hand cream or even coconut oil (around 10 drops per 100ml of product, start less and add until you can just smell tea tree, that should be potent enough)!
The one thing I've thought about over the past 2 weeks is that people must be feeling quite vulnerable about their immunity, you know the types those that get sick very often and some are more prone to catching colds and viruses more regularly. It’s all about the body’s immune system. The immune system is the first line of defense of our body against an alien microorganism entering the body. The stronger your immune system, the smaller chance you have of falling ill. But then again, having a strong immune system doesn’t make you invincible, in chinese medicine it is healthy to have at least 2 colds a year, with the changing of the seasons, a bit like a body have a Spring and Fall clearout!
