Health News - by Nancy Pidutti


With the challenges of the corona virus, I want to address this so you might find ways to help keep you healthy. Picture this: a virus is a rather rounded protein with a harpoon like structure that inserts into a healthy body cell. It penetrates to the DNA and takes command, using nutrients that would have gone to the cell and replacing normal DNA with its own, thereby turning it into a maverick cell that can harm you. The following things here will help you fight the good fight. In a complicated inter-cellular dance, the amino acid (protein building block) L-lysine prevents viruses from multiplying in the body. L-lysine increases serotonin production which lessens over-concern about health issues. Food sources may help, such as: red meat, sardines, eggs, & spirulina, but supplements of 500 milligrams taken at the onset and through the symptoms may be more helpful. Some people believe that upping the dose to 3-4 times a day is more effective. The Cleveland Clinic reports on the use of Sambucol for its ability to fight the flu. This is a syrup made from elderberries. New PubMed reports that it was effective against 10 strains of influenza viruses and could shorten duration of symptoms as well. There are other brands and if the juice is available, that would be better than a syrup. Vitamin C is one of the first things to use, but I suspect crystals may be more effective than capsules as some vitamin C is manufactured in China. Bioflavonoids often come with vitamin C. A good way to get it is to eat the white pulp inside of citrus fruits, the webbing in tangerines and stem inside some fruits as well as the fruit. Grapefruit is known to destroy some bacteria and viruses, but may interact with certain medications so it should be used on a physician’s recommendation. Vitamin D 3. Sunshine is our best source. Bask in early morning rays for the best effect. The red rays are gentler, less likely to burn and work by entering oil glands and turning the cholesterol there into vitamin D which is now recognized as a family rather than a single vitamin. Sources are egg yolk, salmon, sardines. Often fortified foods use forms that are not well used by the body. Lessen sugar intake. Sugar can paralyze white blood cells that are immune system warriors so they’re ineffective against viruses or bacteria. Is that donut worth it? Be Healthy! An aside: Linus Pauling, was the brilliant chemist. won a Nobel Prize for his many discoveries. He is best known as a champion for vitamin C. I hear from a couple of sources that NYC hospitals are now using intravenous infusions to help patients with COVID-19 recover.
