Stay safe during the Holidays with this 1 tip.
Disclaimer: This article does not replace medical advice. I’m sharing what works for my family, please verify for yours before performing any of the below. I avoid heavily censored words but I know you can follow along.
I recently came across a few studies that floored me.
Literally, I thought: wow if everyone knew this, we’d be able to live our lives with a lot less fear.
There’s never been a better time to feel empowered about the things we can do at home to treat infections, hence why I wanted to share it with you...especially as we enter the Holidays.
It's all about "Oral-Nasal Decontamination"
I’m going to safely assume you’ve heard of the Sinus Rinse or nitty pot before. A quick, cheap and effective way to clear sinuses using a simple saline solution. It's been used safely for decades on adults and kids.
Many studies (and lots still undergoing) are showing that doing a sinus rinse at the first onset of cold/flu symptoms, twice a day and for 14 days drastically reduces development of the disease as well as chances of hospitalization.
Better yet: add a few drops (about half a teaspoon) of Betadine (Povidone-iodine, available over the counter at the pharmacy) in the saline solution to boost the antimicrobial effect of your oral-nasal hygiene protocol and you're golden!
Knock down the viral replication in the nose and mouth before it makes its way to the respiratory system.
It's all about early treatment.
How are we not hearing about this? I mean, how simple is this?
Do this after any social gathering.
Dr. Peter McCullough has shared a good tip that might save you this Holiday season:
anytime you've been in close social contact, do the sinus rinse protocol when you get back home.
All it takes is 15-30 seconds to reduce the viral load and give your body a chance to fight!
This goes for both kids and adults.
Why adding Betadine?
It's a natural, effective and safe disinfectant. Adding it to the sinus rinse concoction is a great way to clear and clean up sinus and mouth cavities at the same time.
I also use 1-2 drops of Lugol iodine to my sinus rinse for the same effect.
Do a hypertonic nasal irrigation at home
Ideally, you want to do it twice a day. Some studies are even showing 3 times a day or every 4 hours if you're having symptoms.
If you don't want to invest in Sinus Rinse, you can do it with:
"1/2 tsp. povidone-iodine in the a.m. and in the evening with 8 oz. boiled lukewarm tap water, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, and 1 tsp. salt per cup H20."4
By implementing the discipline around oral-nasal hygiene, you will bring peace of mind to your family.
I’m sharing this information with you because it’s meaningful and can make a big difference.
Hope it's helpful!
