"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think on these things.…" Philippians 4:6-8
Hey friends and family, odds are if you are reading this in the middle of the day today it is most likely because you are self quarantining yourself and your loved ones due to the Covid-19 scare that is sweeping the planet! We really don't know how serious it is, and I and so many others have lots of theories of where it came from and where it's going, but the bottom line is that cornonavirus or not, we should all be ready for anything at anytime. After all, viruses are not new and the flu alone affects almost every household more than once a year. Just remember, none of this is a surprise or new to our Creator. He already provided for His people to fight this. Use wisdom, have faith, do what you can and leave the rest up to Him! He has got you!
How to Prepare
The best thing we can all do is take care of our immune system so we never get sick in the first place. This is what I have done and rarely get sick. (It's been years!) Also, we want to have a few key antivirals, antibacterials and some things for respiriatory and stomach bug relief, just in case. Here is my list for a simple Natural Medicine Cabinet you can assemble very quickly just in case this corona thing gets out of hand, but even if it doesn't, this will set you up for great health all around. I will do another post on foraging for medicine in nature on our own if it comes to that. But for now we can purchase them so we should take advantage!
You can find most of these at your local healthfood store, some of them at your grocery store or amazon, but if you would like to make it easier on yourself and support my business while you're at it, I have included my affiliate links. Thrive Organic Market is my favorite online overall health food store and I am honored to send all my peeps there! (Including YOU!) I would love your business, but more importantly, I would LOVE for you and your family to be happy and HEALTHY. The Probiotic, Super Greens and Immunity blends from ItWorks are what I attribute my rockstar immune system to so I start the list with those! Please note, to list every single benefit of every blend, herb and oil below would make this very, very lengthy so I just included a few most important ones regarding staying healthy during this crises
Just remember, the small investment now to build this simple natural medicine cabinet is much less that the cost of the loss of your health along with doctor and hospital bills later.
