Our microbiome supports the core of our immune system.
The microbiome in the gut providing the majority of programming.
But the gut as our digestive It is best fed by foods providing prebiotic substances – various forms of fiber that would be present in maternal lineage.
[One’s mitochondria co-evolved with our mother’s lineage. Their requirements for thriving, reflect that. Mirrored in how robust we are.]
So, the best foods to eat during a crisis- such as the one we may well be facing with COVID-19, is to eat your grandmother’s health foods. Her fermented pickles, sauerkraut, kimchee, yogurts, etc. These are the foods that will get you healthier, at this time. This has both pre- and post biotic foods.
Don’t eat non-food substances, pesticides, or foods grown out of balance (with added hormones). ‘Round-up’ is not a vitamin- it affects your microbiome too!
Obviously, don’t over exert yourself, so your body doesn’t have to repair more than necessary. Having high levels of repair going on depletes our bodies resources to heal. Slow down.
Smudge yourself after being in crowds. Smudging has been shown to clear the aerosol around your body of bacteria and viruses.
Take time to sit down and meditate. 10 minutes twice a day. COMPLETELY DETACHED. Wear headphones and an eye mask – twiddle your thumbs if you must! Of course forty minutes is better! Breathe slowly on exhale. Imagine a candle over a lake. Do Nadi-Shodanan as often as possible. Do gentle nasal rinses and use nose drops (sesame oil works). Be gentle with yourself and others. You might even want to spend extra time with your loved ones. Blessings.
