By now almost everyone knows someone who has either been exposed to or infected with COVID-19. And while everyone’s symptoms may vary just like the severity of the disease, almost everyone reports lingering symptoms during and after recovery process.
The symptoms may include fatigue, insomnia, various gastrointestinal issues such as diarrhoea, stomach pain, food sensitivities, burning sensation in the stomach, joint pain, headaches and more.
Because more than 70% of our immune system resides in the gut, it is critical we address gastrointestinal system symptoms as soon as possible.
Any infection puts human body under severe strain and COVID-19 not being just “average” flu, affects it on every level – mental included.
Our immune system may be already weakened by the wide use of anti-bacterial hand sanitizers which not only can increase antibiotic resistance but can be also toxic considering we would not really know what ingredients the sanitizer contains.
Secondly, everyone exposed to COVID-19 is exposed to different viral load, meaning someone’s working in the hospital viral load will be thousand times higher than someone’s who is working from home and that will affect the severity and the outcome of the disease.
Human body, being affected by virus, is intoxicated not only with endogenous (produced by the body) toxins, but also with drugs which are prescribed to the patients. Almost every patient reported stomach issues after prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs and that is why it becomes crucial to detox the gut after infection and treatment.
Supplement with necessary vitamins and minerals to increase effective immune response is especially important. Good old remedies which worked for centuries will support your body during pandemic as well: soups, ginger tea, fresh vegetables and fruits as often as possible, hibiscus tea (natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant with high Vitamin C content).
Try to avoid fast food, cold drinks and highly processed foods as they are nutritionally empty and rob your gut of beneficial bacteria which is a main part of your immune system.
Increased fermented foods intake, such as kimchi, sauerkraut, kombucha etc. has proven benefits – recent study in Korea showed that “Fermented cabbage helps decrease levels of ACE2, an enzyme in the cell membrane mostly found in lungs that is used by COVID-19 as an entry point into the body. Consuming high levels of fermented cabbage brings down the number of ACE2, making it more difficult for the virus to enter the body. High in antioxidants, fermented cabbage is also good for boosting immunity.”
Enterosgel® will assist in detox process helping your body get rid of bacterial, medicinal, and endogenous toxins which can aggravate the inflammation and increase toxic load on organs such as kidney and liver.
Enterosgel® heals the intestinal lining which in turn helps reduce anxiety levels and possibly assists with depression and fatigue as increased intestinal permeability affects our well-being tremendously.
