Once again I will reiterate that I am not a medical professional. If you have health concerns please consult with your doctor or health professional. They have the ability to diagnose your condition and determine the best course of action. I’m am, however, sharing this information because I fear that my earlier post about having a strong immune system could have devastating results for some people. After reading fellow blogger Joni’s recent article about The Great Influenza and this article on cytokine-storm I am retracting my “motherly advice”.
I will no longer share information or advice about health or well being either my personal practices or things that I have read. I will leave that to the professionals.
This is the message I received in an email letter from herbalist Jim Mcdonald –
“Everyone is wondering – rightly – “what do we take for the coronavirus?” While there are numerous theories and ideas, the truth of the matter, at this point, is that we don’t entirely know. There’s so much we don’t know about COVID-19.
But there are things we do know, about the body, about supporting fever and immune responses, and about working with the person and not just the disease they’re responding to. As I study cases and as I’ve begun to work with cases, what’s clear is that people are responding differently: some people have high fevers, some people respond with low grade fevers. Some people have more pronounced upper respiratory issues, while other are just feeling it in their lungs. Some people are safe managing the infection at home, and some will need medical intervention. It’s clear that we can’t make one size fits all suggestions, and clearer than ever that truly holistic, energetic considerations need to be made when choosing a course of action.”
That letter along with a discount offer on his Foundations in Holistic Immunity series can be found at this link.
Personally I will now refocus my energies on things like garden planning, soap making, and taking care of myself, my husband and the boys.
I will also continue to pray for strength, wisdom and well being for all.
