Just as the world was heaving a sigh of relief that people were getting vaccinated and several countries had gone through wave #2 of the pandemic, the mutated Wuhan virus strains seem to be spreading again.
From tonight there is night curfew in Haryana. Our condo complex management has already started taking precautions and we stopped door deliveries a couple of days back. Everyday we seem to have 2 to 3 new cases. Several friends across the country have tested positive … the India wave #2 seems to peaking.
The following note was shared on the Living Without Medicine WhatsApp group, by the founder of the group Ms. Gauri Sarin. Sharing it further.
*COVID-19 CRUCIAL INFORMATION*
◉ Due to the collapse of the health system, we, the health professionals, have prepared this message for the people, in case you do not want to risk going to the hospital immediately; __________ ◉ Symptoms appear from the third day after infection (viral symptoms). ➙ 1st phase; ◉ Body pain ◉ Eye pain ◉ Headache ◉ vomiting ◉ Diarrhea Runny nose or nasal congestion ◉ Decomposition ◉ Burning eyes ◉ Burning when urinating ◉ Feeling feverish ◉ Scuffed throat (sore throat) ➙ It is very important to count the days of symptoms: 1st, 2nd, 3rd. ◉ Take action before the onset of fever. ◉ Be careful, it is very important to drink plenty of fluids, especially purified water. Drink plenty of water to keep your throat moist and to help clear your lungs. __________ ➙ 2nd phase; (from 4th to 8th day) inflammatory. ◉ Loss of taste and / or smell ◉ Fatigue with minimal effort ◉ Chest pain (rib cage) ◉ Tightening of the chest ◉ Pain in the lower back (in the kidney area) __________ ➙ The virus attacks nerve endings; ◉ The difference between fatigue and shortness of breath: • _Lack of air is when the person is sitting - without making any effort - and is out of breath; • Fatigue is when the person moves around to do something simple and feels tired. __________ ➙ It takes a lot of hydration and vitamin C. __________ Covid-19 binds oxygen, so the quality of the blood is poor, with less oxygen. __________ ➙ 3rd phase - healing; ◉ On day 9, the healing phase begins, which can last until day 14 (convalescence). ◉ Do not delay treatment, the sooner the better! ➙ Good luck everyone! It is better to keep these recommendations, prevention is never too much! • Sit in the sun for 15-20 minutes • Rest and sleep for at least 7-8 hours. • Drink 1 and a half liters of water per day • All food should be hot (not cold). ➙ Keep in mind that the pH of the coronavirus ranges from 5.5 to 8.5. So all we have to do to eliminate the virus is to eat more alkaline foods, above the acid level of the virus. Fruits such as - ◉ Bananas, Lime → 9.9 pH ◉ Yellow lemon → 8.2 pH ◉ Avocado - pH 15.6 ◉ Garlic - pH 13.2 ◉ Mango - pH 8.7 ◉ Mandarin - pH 8.5 ◉ Pineapple - 12.7 pH ◉ Watercress - 22.7 pH ◉ Oranges - 9.2 pH __________ ➙ How do you know you have Covid-19 ?! ◉ itchy throat ◉ Dry throat ◉ Dry cough ◉ High temperature ◉ Difficulty breathing ◉ Loss of smell and taste __________ *Important Message for all* The hot water you drink is good for your throat. But this corona virus is hidden behind the paranasal sinus of your nose for 3 to 4 days. The hot water we drink does not reach there. After 4 to 5 days this virus that was hidden behind the paranasal sinus reaches your lungs. Then you have trouble breathing. That's why it is very important to take steam, which reaches the back of your paranasal sinus. You have to kill this virus in the nose with steam. At 50°C, this virus becomes disabled i.e. paralyzed. At 60°C this virus becomes so weak that any human immunity system can fight against it. At 70°C this virus dies completely. This is what steam does. One who stays at home should take steam once a day. If you go to the market to buy vegetables, take it twice a day. Anyone who meets some people or goes to office should take steam 3 times a day. Forward this to all your loved ones. 🙏
If anyone is experiencing any of the symptoms above – PLEASE CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR. HE/SHE KNOWS BEST. Do not try to resolve this by yourself. The preventive tips are helpful, do follow them to increase your immunity.
Prevention is better than Cure
Its important to be smart and sensible during these times. Do not visit crowded places. Most things get delivered. Keep deliveries in one spot for a couple of days before you open and start using it. Sanitize after every outing. Wash your hands, wear your mask and maintain social distance. Those are still the best preventive measures you can take. Take the vaccine when eligible.
I had shared earlier about the Peltzman Effect – Why are Covid Cases rising ?. Even after vaccination, you still need to take precautions.
Be smart. Remember –
ॐ सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः। सर्वे सन्तु निरामयाः। सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु। मा कश्चित् दुःख भाग्भवेत्॥ ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः॥
