Whether it’s a virus or another type of threat, first things we need to do is to stay calm, there are many ways to improve our chances of remaining prepared, healthy, fed, safe, and peaceful. While we might not have the ability to challenge virus or whatever comes our way, we can certainly bolster our immune systems, disinfect our homes, and prepare our bodies for potential infections and other types of quandaries.
What Are Viruses And How Do They Work?
Viruses are microscopic parasites, generally much smaller than bacteria. They lack the capacity to thrive and reproduce outside of a host body.
Most often, viruses behave like intracellular parasites that live (like vampires) off of our primary, healthy cells. After releasing RNA, which invades cell nuclei, viruses use host cells to create more viral particles. When new viral particles are released, they can destroy or debilitate the host cell in the process. When our cells, bodies, and immune systems are in tip-top shape, we improve our chances of recovering sooner.
Here’s a list of herbs that can reduce the chances of contracting and spreading many of today’s viral infections.
Each of these herbs has unique properties, some of which produce adverse side effects. Be careful with dosages and combinations!

Tibetan garlic cure
Ingredients that you need:
350 gr. of garlic

Wash Your Hands With Soap
Washing your hands with soap and water can be useful and has been found effective against some viruses and bacteria, especially if you touch someone’s hand or an object that has them. In these cases, and more, washing your hands after personal interactions is highly recommended. But this is not a cure-all preventative method for safety during this time. The coronavirus, like many viruses, is airborne, at least for a period, and should be understood to be highly contagious, whether or not you wash you thoroughly wash your hands.
Use Essential Oils
Using essential oils like Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, Honeysuckle, and Rose can reduce your levels of stress and improve your awareness, all of which can boost your immune system. Add a few drops in a glass of water or massage a few drops into your wrists and temples. You’ll soon feel more awake, aware, and relaxed.
Remember that prayer, meditation, laughter, and positive thinking can help to heal and restore us emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
