Your dental health is your most precious commodity. Protect your mouth and you build natural defenses against viral, bacterial and inflammatory invasions.
The coronavirus is a real concern but with some planning, you can reduce your chances of becoming sick if you are exposed.
Your mouth is the gatekeeper to the rest of your health... let's protect it!
As a mom and nurse, I have been teaching about the oral biome as the keeper of health... yet recent research shocked the world of medicine when it pointed to the oral biome as the frontline of defense against colds and the flu!
Think great health begins in the gut? Think again! The source of ALL DISEASE is in your mouth!
The coronavirus is a real concern, but with some planning, you can reduce your chances of becoming sick if you are exposed. The first thing you should think about is your mouth because it is connected to every organ in your body.
First, even if you are exposed does not mean you will get sick from the virus. The virus needs the right "medium' or environment to flourish.
If you suffer from frequent sinus infections, contract the flu or common cold easily or have a weak immune system, chances are your mouth it the root cause.
Your mouth is connected to your nose and your sinuses. If you breathe in an airborne virus (coronavirus) and your mouth is already housing harmful, acidic bacteria- you are at increased risk of becoming sick. If your mouth has plaque on your teeth our gumline, you suffer from bad breath, your gums are red, inflammed or bleeding, you are increased risk of becoming sick if you are exposed to coronavirus

The coronavirus is HERE. And things will get worse before they get better.
Our healthcare system may be the best in the world, but it’s not equipped to have such a massive influx of acute patients. Our hospitals will be overwhelmed, our doctors and nurses will be overworked, and our friends and neighbors will be treated in hallways and makeshift treatment tents in hospital parking lots.
Prevention and immune-boosting are key, but if you do get sick, a great friend and homeopathic pharmacist gave me some tips on what to do if you do get sick. In this post, I'm sharing his suggestions, along with some of my own so you can prepare now.
Handwashing is always extremely important but with the immune threat of the Coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) HOW you wash your hands, WHAT you use to clean them and WHAT type of sprays you apply between washing has an even bigger impact on keeping you healthy. Learn the 8-Steps to Clean Hands the way a Surgeon washes his hands!
First, let's talk about why handwashing is so effective at reducing infections.
Coronaviruses (including SARS-CoV-2 which causes the illness COVID-19) are enveloped RNA viruses. Its structure has three main components: RNA encompassed in a capsid protein layer that is itself encompassed in a lipid envelope. That's good news because it means that it's very susceptible to regular soaps and detergents, which break up the lipid envelope inactivating the virus' ability to infect our cells.
If I asked you if you take Moringa, Skullcap, and Schisandra, would you know what I am referring to?
No, these are not Charlie's new Angels! These are the three "ninja" herbs I take daily for their plant-powered immune-boosting potential. Ninja? Yes! Not only do they supercharge your immune system, but they are also all anti-virals and detoxifiers.
These NINJA herbs are more powerful than their names suggest! They really could be Charlie's Angels as potent as they are!
You might be confused by all of the "immune-boosting" supplements available, I was too. I really don't enjoy taking supplements- I have to force myself to take a handful of pills each day! But tasty powder I blend in my water? I can drink those all day! I have a few different blends I drink- but for plant-powered immunity, nothing beats my Daily Detox by Wendy Myers, FDN-P, CHHC.
