Novel Coronavirus comes from the same family of viruses as MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV. It is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. Symptoms of the infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.
Both viruses are highly contagious. Although their recovery rates are very high and are usually not fatal, they do pose a danger to the very young, the elderly, and to those who have pre-existing health conditions such as diabetes, liver, kidney, or heart diseases, asthma or other respiratory illnesses, and those who are immunocompromised – having a weak immune system.
A Healthier Alternative: Maintaining a Strong Immune System
While we take precautions to avoid contracting the viruses, it is more important that we take the appropriate steps to strengthen our immune system, as it is the body’s natural defense against viral infections.
Prevention indeed is better than cure. Why wait until you are ill before doing something about your health? Take the right steps to increase your immune system, today!
Our immune system is a complex network of specialized cells and organs which defends us against attacks by foreign invaders. When functioning properly, it fights off infections by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. However, when the immune system is weak, the body’s whole defense system will be down and therefore subject to the attack of invaders when exposed to harmful organisms. The body’s immune system will attempt to bar their entry, or failing that, will seek out and destroy them.
To have a strong immune system, the body needs to be made up of well-nourished cells that are free from toxins. Diet and supplements play a vital role in reinforcing the immune system.
Pure Detox has always advocated a healthy lifestyle. We recommend the Detoxification & Rejuvenation Programme periodically to give your body a new start (or reset) and then a daily diet that comprises of 75% raw fruit and vegetables, with plenty of freshly made fruit/ vegetable juice. We suggest avoiding all processed foods and also to reduce salt/sugar intake as much as possible. Some meat from free-range chicken, free-range eggs, or deep-sea fish can provide protein.
