Protecting Yourself from Corona Virus and Other Threats
Live Webinar Date: Wednesday, March 4, 2020, 7-8pm . Register Here. The Corona Virus is a present world-wide threat and it is only natural that it became a discussion topic in our series, Achieving Your Optimal Health. That being said, on the day of this webinar little was known about the origin of the virus and an immunization vaccine had not yet been created. Though medical science is largely in the dark with it comes to prevention and cure of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), there are some important “knowns”.
- The virus is transmitted by direct contact with the fluids (droplets) of infected individuals. Therefore, avoid direct contact (hand shake…etc.), wash frequently for a full 20 seconds and use hand sanitizer.
- Some populations are more susceptible than others: i.e. Individuals over the age of 70 and individuals with pre-existing conditions are more susceptible and at risk.
- For the latest, most authoritative update view the Coronavirus Disease pages on the CDC and FDA websites.
That being said, the value of our health team discussion touches upon the subject of immunity. If individuals over age 70 and individuals with pre-existing conditions are more at risk, it stands to reason that those with a stronger immune system might be less at risk than those with a weaker immune system. Therefore, it is always wise to find ways to strengthen your immune system, and this is the subject of our webinar.
And then, there’s the conversation on dealing with our fears: Fear in itself can contribute to illness. The way we deal with fear can make us more or less susceptible to illness. How can we prepare ourselves against the threat of Corona Virus without experiencing the kind of fear that can weaken our immune defenses?
Finally, the time may be coming in which it is wise to use the many great tools available that enable us to meet virtually with others. Now is a good time to practice using a free virtual meeting tool that is available to everyone.
