Covid's Cloudy Beginning and Future

From eNewsletter 4/7/2021

DID YOU KNOW that two very important studies were published last week regarding prevention and treatment of respiratory infections? A study from The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology was fervent in its conclusion that supplemental vitamin D3 at doses as little as 400-1000IU for one year prevents, and reduces the duration of, respiratory infections. Authors of a study in Pediatrics are just as fervently urging health professionals to delay antibiotic prescriptions for respiratory infections in children unless bacterial infection is confirmed by culture. Moreover, there was no difference in duration of infection for children who received antibiotic treatment versus those that didn't. Children who did not take antibiotics had significantly less gastrointestinal side effects.

UPDATE - COVID-19 Vaccine Information We updated this document Monday April 5th.

Virus Prevention And Treatment Vaccines will minimize COVID-19 related mortality and hospitalizations, but SARS-CoV-2 is not going away, as evidenced by its ever-mutating variants. Moreover, SARS-CoV-2 is not the only virus we fight. There are influenza (flu), norovirus (stomach flu), adenovirus (common cold), and four other coronaviruses (common cold), among others.We highly recommend continuing your immune support. For more information, refer to our Prevent and Fight Viruses 2.0 Protocol.

Post-COVID Syndrome The official diagnosis for post-COVID syndrome (PCS) are symptoms that last for 12 weeks or more. If you, a family member, friend, coworker, or neighbor is suffering from PCS, diligently following our Post-COVID Syndrome Action Plan for purchase, or free to paid members, can bring measurable improvement.


Steve and Bonnie: While it would be nice to know the origin of SARS-CoV-2, the World Health Organization's published findings do not have us brimming with confidence. It is incumbent to allow complete transparency and unencumbered access to all potential clues so the world can strategize on how to prevent something like this from happening again. Until then, we have two major arrows in our quiver: preventive steps including diet, lifestyle, and supplements; mRNA vaccines, which adeptly teach our immune systems to stave off COVID-related severe disease and death, and will be quickly adjusted to attack virulent, SARS-CoV-2 mutations.

Healthy Strategies for COVID-19 Prevention

While the conclusions from a new study from British Journal of Nutrition should not come as a surprise, they highlight the importance of food choices considering their inflammatory effects. Healthy eating habits, micronutrients, bioactive compounds in supplements and probiotics are strategies for COVID-19 prevention. Therefore, a diversified, balanced, and nutrient-dense diet can contribute to the improvement of the immune response to viral infections such as COVID-19.
