11 Ways To Protect Yourself From Virus Outbreaks

The outbreak of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) which originated in Wuhan China, has been declared by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as a global emergency. 11,860 cases ( as at Feb 2) have been reported in China with the death toll of 259 people. It has spread to almost all continents with reports of 164 cases in other countries.

What are the symptoms?
The symptoms cannot be differentiated from the common cold and flu. These are fever, cough and in the more severe cases, there is shortness of breath and pneumonia of differing severity. The worse the pneumonia severity, the greater the risk of fatality. Dr Shawn Vasoo, the acting Clinical Director at the National Centre for Infectious Diseases, Singapore, estimated that 20% of those infected would become severely ill.

How is the virus treated?
There are no specific antiviral medications to treat this virus. Medical treatment is limited. The infection has to be overcome by your immune system. Therefore you should take steps to strengthen your immune system as well as avoid behaviour which crashes your immune system.

11 Ways To Protect Yourself From Virus Outbreaks

1. Mask Up
I know the papers say to only mask up if you are sick. However, some believe that they are protecting themselves from the virus being spread from others coughing or sneezing. If you are in a crowded public place or enclosed space such as the plane, then I would recommend masking up even if you aren’t sick.  Reports have stated that the symptoms cannot be seen until 9-14 days after one has contracted the coronavirus.

2. Protect Your Mouth, Nose and Eyes
Avoid touching your mouth, nose and eyes after touching public surfaces. This is how the virus enters your body. If you are in an enclosed space with recirculating air such as on a plane or a public place like an airport, hospital or clinic, I would recommend also protecting your eyes with glasses.

3. Practice Good Hygiene
Wash your hands with soap after touching public surfaces and avoid touching your eyes, nose, face and even your hair until you have washed your hands. My daughter uses a tissue to open doors and when touching bannisters. She uses her car key to touch surfaces like lift buttons and the ATM machine.  Sometimes she uses her knuckle but then washes her hands immediately after. I used to think she was a little bit of a crazy germaphobe, but at this time, these may be good practices. You could also clean aeroplane seats and surfaces with antibacterial wipes first before touching them. 

4. Catch Up On Sleep
Night owls should sleep earlier and get 8 hours of sleep. Between 10 pm to 2 am are the important times when the body carries out its repair so it’s most beneficial to be asleep by 10 pm.  Sleep deprivation takes a major toll on your immune system which makes you more susceptible to falling ill.

5. Avoid Sugar
Sugar depresses your immune system function. There are many hidden sugars in foods such as salad dressings and ketchup so do read the product labels carefully.

6. Eat Whole Nutritious Food
Nutritious whole foods like fruits and vegetables, whole grains and proteins nourish your body’s cells and help strengthen your immune system.

7. Get Some Sun
Sun exposure is known to improve immune function.  Vitamin D from the sun has an anti-viral activity -it helps your immune response to viruses.

8. Avoid Alcohol and Smoking
Alcohol is a diuretic so it dehydrates your body. It also causes loss of vitamins and minerals leaving you nutritional deficit and depresses your immune system.  Smoking (including second-hand smoke) causes a reduction in immune system function.

9. Refrain from Over-exercise
Aggressive exercise can increase cortisol and this depresses your immune system. Consider doing some moderate exercise at home.

10. Be aware of immunosuppressive drugs
People on steroids are at risk, including cancer patients on radiation and chemotherapy. Antihistamines, antacids and acid reflux medication depress the immune system and decrease your body’s ability to fight infection.  Cancer patients need to take extra precautions.

11. Increase your serving of Santivia Immune
Natural Killer (NK) cells are your body’s defence against viruses. They are your body’s assassin cells. Studies have shown that people who are chronically sick have low numbers of NK cells. You can’t have enough NK cells!
Santivia immune contains the proprietary and unique immune modulator, Ai/E10, with the synergistic anti-oxidant ingredient of blueberries.
A US clinical trial demonstrated that Ai/E10 increases NK cell activity by 300% in ‘healthy’ (i.e. not chronically sick) people taking it for 3 months. Another trial in 107 serious chronic sick patients showed an increase in NK cells by 1250% when given high serving sizes of Ai/E10 and followed for 18 months.

We urge you to take active steps to strengthen your immune system by taking Santivia immune daily especially during this virus epidemic and when travelling.

The adult serving size we recommend for Santivia immune is 1 capsule twice daily. This is an average maintenance serving. However, in high-risk situations, we strongly urge adults to start at 4 capsules daily, preferably in divided servings. The aim is to get a faster improvement in immune function.

For children from 2 years to 12, half the adult serving is recommended. 1 capsule daily as a maintenance serving. 2 capsules daily for intensive use, preferably in divided servings.

For vulnerable people with already compromised immune systems, intake of Santivia Immune can be increased even to 6 to 8 capsules.
Santivia Immune is a food, not a drug. It will not interact with any medication.

Keep healthy and safe everyone!

What’s Your Main Defence against the Wuhan Virus?

Wuhan Coronavirus

The coronavirus from Wuhan is causing much concern worldwide. 40 million people in China have been in lockdown or quarantined. Some reports are of 3% fatality rate. The elderly, the young and those with existing health conditions are at the greatest risk of a more serious outcome if succumbing to the virus. And if the virus undergoes more mutations it could become even more virulent.

Your Main Defence Against The Coronavirus

Your main defence against viruses is your immune system’s NK cells (a.k.a Natural Killer Cells). As its name suggests, NK cells are like your assassin cells. They are responsible for killing viruses as well as microscopic cancer cells. So, you really want high NK cell levels and activity.
In modern times, our NK cell activity is estimated at 10-20% of past generations, mainly due to our exposure to ever-increasing toxins such as chemical pollutants in our environment, food, skincare and cleaning agents. In olden time, many of these chemicals did not exist.

Santivia Immune Strengthens Your Immune System
Ai/E10® is the active ingredient immune modulator in Santivia Immune. It is synergistically combined with the powerful antioxidant effect of superfood blueberries. It is formulated to not only boost a weak immune system but also balance an overactive immune system.

Proven Clinical Data
There are 2 clinical trials proving that Ai/E10 increases NK cells by 300% in healthy normal people as well as in the chronically sick. The chronic sick all have very low numbers of NK cells. As NK numbers increase there is a corresponding improvement in health and wellbeing.
We urge you to take active steps to strengthen your immune system and increase the NK cell number and activity, by taking Santivia immune daily especially during this virus epidemic and when travelling.
The adult serving size we recommend for Santivia immune is 1 capsule twice daily. This is an average maintenance serving.

Recommend Usage
However, in high-risk situations, we strongly urge adults to start at 4 capsules daily, preferably in divided servings. The aim is to get a faster improvement in immune function.
For children from 2 years to 12, half the adult serving is recommended. 1 capsule daily as a maintenance serving. 2 capsules daily for intensive use, preferably in divided servings.
For vulnerable people with already compromised immune systems, intake of Santivia Immune can be increased even to 6 to 8 capsules.

Remember - Santivia Immune is a food, not a drug. It will not interact with any medication.

Keep Your Immune Strong during this Coronavirus Epidemic and stay protected!
