Coronavirus Plan for My Family
Everyone is talking about the Coronavirus. I am trying not to panic, and just be practical and have a plan. Here is what I plan to do if the sickness spreads throughout the United States.
We will start by doing everything in our power not to get the sickness. We might not go to the Houston Rodeo, Zoo, Museums if the sickness starts spreading quickly. I might utilize curbside grocery delivery to avoid time in grocery stores.
My husband and I will still have to work unless specified otherwise.
We will wash our hands after all outings and before eating.
Avoid Large Crowds
We might not travel or go on outings where there are large people. If it does spread throughout Houston. I might even stop going to the library until it dies down.
I plan to sanitize as much as I can in public spaces and our hands after going anywhere. My toddler touches everything and often his hands somehow end up in his mouth. I’m a big fan of the EO Sanitizer Brand.
With the sickness being spread by people, I wouldn’t want to just lock up in the house. It is springtime, and I would want to play outside more. Maybe the sun can help kill any germs!
I do all the typical treatments I usually do for illness, but I have also seen advice to increase your Vitamin A and Vitamin D, like your greens. Drink warm water with Lemon. Eat fresh garlic.
We would treat the Coronavirus much like we would a flu. We would treat it like we would the flu at home. If the sickness escalated, we would go to the doctor or hospital. I would want to avoid being confined in the hospital. I would rather be sick or my child be sick in the comfort of their home giving all the homemade goodness I can, such as:
This is a great preventative to take when germs are around to keep immunities strong. I like the syrup more than the gummies.
Good old Fashioned Chicken Soup, but I love to add fresh ginger, tumeric, garlic, onion, carrots, and serve with rice. Even though my toddler doesn’t want to eat the vegetables, he loves to drink the broth. Add in some high quality bone broth along with your chicken bone broth. Just add a cup or so of bone broth, not too much or it won’t taste as good.
My son takes a Gummy Multi Vitamin and a Gummy Vitamin C. I take the Garden of Life Prenatal and also Vitamin D-3.
We splurge on fresh squeezed orange juice for all that Vitamin C!
PREVENT SPREADING CORONAVIRUS
The biggest concern I have is not wanting to spread the virus to others, especially my son’s grandparents. He sees them often and they are all over 50 and 60 and 70 years old! They are all healthy, but that is a group at greater risk, so I would never want to give it to them. It is a tricky sickness, because you can spread it without knowing you have it!
This sickness should be taken very seriously, but it is important we don’t panic. If you are “freaking out,” remember that our governments and corporations are spending a lot of time deciding how to minimize the spread and putting money towards solutions. For many people, the symptoms are no more than a cold. It is important that we do everything we can to reduce the spread to vulnerable people.
