For those interested in preventive steps that may decrease the chance of becoming infected with COVID-19, please see the I Mask + protocols below, courtesy of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance.
A note on vaccinations and side effects: One of the side effects observed after COVID-19 vaccinations has been thickening of the blood. This can lead to clots. The best way to avoid blood thickening is to consume things that thin the blood, especially ginger, garlic, and fish oil. Also, it is good to stay well-hydrated. Seniors tend to have a reduced sense of thirst, so they should drink as much water as they can. The recommended amount of water per day is 64 ounces, 1.5 quarts.
Clots usually form in extremities where blood has a chance to flow slowly. Pain, redness, heat, numbness, tingling, any unusual sensations could be a sign of a clot. The goal is to dissolve the clot without dislodging it. A seasoned nurse who spent decades working in emergency rooms advises that if you MIGHT have a clot as evidenced by unusual sensations, you should go immediately to a hospital emergency room. A clot on the move can cause a stroke or a heart attack.
Another update: The CDC has revised its statistics about cause of death from COVID-19 and acknowledges that many of the deaths originally attributed to COVID-19 were from other causes.
For those avoiding or delaying injections, the best things for boosting your immunity are vitamins B12, C, and D3, as well as zinc and melatonin. It is also good to be well-rested.
