Handwashing & other Coronavirus Health Tips

“Happy Birthday to You” should be the No. 1 song in the nation. The tune was once dubbed the most recognized song in the English language by Guinness World Records, and of course it’s often sung heartily at parties celebrating the births of countless people from coast to coast.

Now, people are hearing it more and more amid the coronavirus pandemic. That’s because health experts recommend it as great way to gauge how long to wash your hands, which is one of the most basic and essential ways to protect against infection.

Scrubbing should last at least 20 seconds, or about how long it takes to sing or hum “Happy Birthday” twice in a row, to rid your hands of any germs and pathogens.

It’s a fun, familiar song, but in all seriousness it’s worth remembering as a simple tool to ensure good hygiene in a time when clean hands can help ease an epidemic.

Coronavirus Stool Testing -Now Available!

Monitor, Manage, and Prevent Transmission of COVID-19 with the New SARS-CoV-2 qPCR Stool Test from Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory

Key Points:
    • Cutting-edge viral RNA qPCR stool test measures levels of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. covid pic 2
    • Screen, monitor, or prevent transmission in patients at risk for COVID-19.SARS-CoV-2 in stool may be found in up to 53.4% of COVID-19 patients.The virus may be detected in stool for a period of days to weeks after initial infection.
    • Intestinal viral infection may play an important role in COVID-19 disease progression and may increase risk for more severe disease.
    • Detection of SARS-CoV-2 in stool could be used to prevent fecal-oral transmission.

Overview

COVID-19 is an infectious disease the World Health Organization has identified as a global pandemic. SARS-CoV-2 is a novel, single strand RNA virus that causes COVID-19.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, COVID-19 is mainly spread person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Other means of virus transmission are possible as well. Asymptomatic patients or patients who have not yet presented with symptoms may transmit the virus to others, and the virus may also be spread by contacting a contaminated surface.

Below you’ll find facts about COVID-19 and information about testing options Diagnostic Solutions lab offer to help detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the disease.

Symptomology Related to COVID-19

Some people with COVID-19 remain asymptomatic carriers of the disease, while others exhibit varying degrees of the following common symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Gastrointestinal Complaints
    • Diarrhea
    • Abdominal pain
    • Vomiting
  • Anorexia (loss of appetite)

COVID-19 Diagnostic Test (oral and NP Swab)

Diagnostic Solutions  COVID-19 Assay is listed on the FDA website as a validated test under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) guidelines. This test is currently available only to hospitals and public health institutionsand uses RT-PCR technology to identify SARS-CoV-2 using a nasopharyngeal (NP) or oral swab.

SARS-CoV-2 Stool Analysis – Screening and Surveillance Test is available to all

The SARS-CoV-2 stool test also uses RT-PCR technology to detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in stool and is now available at Johnson Compounding and Wellness by special order.

Research from around the world indicates that as many as 50 percent of patients who are positive for SARS-CoV-2 experience gastrointestinal complaints.1

Furthermore, evidence suggests SARS-CoV-2 is detectable in stool and its presence in stool may last for up to five weeks after clearance from the respiratory tract. A recent article published in Lancet states:

“Our data suggest the possibility of extended duration of viral shedding in faeces, for nearly 5 weeks after the patients’ respiratory samples tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 RNA. Although knowledge about the viability of SARS-CoV-2 is limited, the virus could remain viable in the environment for days, which could lead to faecal–oral transmission, as seen with severe acute respiratory virus CoV and Middle East respiratory syndrome CoV. Therefore, routine stool sample testing with real-time RT-PCR is highly recommended after the clearance of viral RNA in a patient’s respiratory samples. Strict precautions to prevent transmission should be taken for patients who are in hospital or self-quarantined if their faecal samples test positive.”2

The SARS-COV-2 Stool Test is Helpful for the Following Individuals:

  • Patients exhibiting signs and symptoms of SARS-CoV-2, including:
    • Fever
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath
    • Gastrointestinal Complaints
  • Asymptomatic Patients Concerned about Having or Transmitting the Virus
  • Surveillance of patients who previously tested positive for COVID-19 by respiratory sample

The SARS-CoV-2 Stool Analysis is not diagnostic of COVID-19. COVID-19 disease can only be diagnosed with positive SARS-CoV-2 results on a respiratory sample.

Common Sense tips for dealing with the Corona Virus, Flu and Common Cold

Here are some common sense tips for dealing with the Corona Virus, flu and common cold.  The same precautions and supplements can be used for all of these viruses. Everyone should be practicing these easy steps every day to help prevent spread of colds, flu, and the Corona virus.

Wash you hands properly!

Most of us wash our hands often during cold and flu season, but many do not wash properly.  The CDC states that proper washing of your hands is more effective than hand sanitizers.

You should wash your hands often, properly, and especially before touching your face, nose, eyes, food or food preparation surfaces.

Take a minute and watch the video below for a simple 1 minute way to properly wash your hands.

Think before you touch!

Some of the most common contaminated surfaces are:

  • door knobs
  • elevator buttons
  • escalator hand rails
  • bathroom door handles
  • light switches
  • airplanes-seat belts, tray tables, tv screens
  • other peoples hands

Things to do on a daily basis

  1. Eat healthy food, limit prepared foods, fast food
  2. Stay hydrated
  3. Get a good night’s sleep
  4. Decrease stress
  5. Do not have the TV or radio on all day long listening to the same news cycle over and over
  6. Enjoy each day, this stressful time will pass

Some statistics to think about

We take for granted that people die each year from flu, car accidents, overdoses.  Look at the numbers, and then put into perspective where you live, how you live and what is your exposure to the Corona Virus.  Statistically, you probably have a lower chance of being exposed to and catching the Corona virus than any of the following causes of death.

  • While the impact of flu varies, it places a substantial burden on the health of people in the United States each year. CDC estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9 million – 45 million illnesses, between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 61,000 deaths annually since 2010. https://www.cdc.gov/
  • Traffic Deaths in US exceed 40,000 for Third Straight Year . Bloomberg.com

70,237 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States in 2017. The age-adjusted rate of overdose deaths increased significantly by 9.6% from 2016 (19.8 per 100,000) to 2017 (21.7 per 100,000). Opioids—mainly synthetic opioids (other than methadone)—are currently the main driver of drug overdose deathswww.cdc.gov

Products that can be helpful

  • Hand sanitizers
    • washing you hands is not always possible, so keep some hand sanitizer with  you at all times and use it often
  • Viracid – Orthomolecular
    • Take 2 capsules daily.  If you feel you are coming down with something, take 2 capsules every hour for 6 hours then 2 capsules three times a day until you feel better.
  • Natural Creations Nasal Spray 
    • Spray each nostril 1-4 times a day as needed. Keeping your nasal passage ways healthy and moist is the first line of defense against viruses

The Indoor Generation

I just returned from the first annual Environmental Toxins and Genomics Conference in Denver, CO. 

Speakers included Neal Nathan MD, Joseph Merolca, DO, Stephanie Seneff, PhD, Jill Carnahan, MD, Lari Young, MD, Sandeep Gupta, MD, Robert Miller, Emily Givler and Mackay Rippey.

Topics included:

  • EMF and NADPH-Dangers of EMF and how it can affect our metabolic processes
  • Phase 1 Detox and the CYP Enzymes and how genetic weaknesses can have a profound effect on health
  • Autophagy and M-tor
  • Glyphosate and how it impacts the critical Phase II pathway of sulfation
  • Glucuronidation and the importance of this detox pathway, the genetic involvement and support for these issues.

The conference focused on how Functional Genomic Analysis(DNA analysis) can help identify how our genetic makeup can make us more susceptible to toxins in the environment and how we can support our body to deal with these exposures.

Support of metabolic pathways, taking each of our unique genetic makeup into consideration was discussed in-depth.

Analyzing DNA helped explain why many people have multiple chemical sensitivities and why some therapies work for some but others feel worse.

We are in control of our epigenetics (diet, lifestyle, stress, toxic exposures, diet, exercise etc.) and these have a profound effect on our health and healing.

Using a full analysis of our DNA along with lab testing can help us understand why some people have severe health issues due to toxins in the environment and their lifestyles and why the body may be having issues processing these chemicals due to our unique genetic makeup. This was extensively discussed and thoughts on how to help people with compromised detoxification due to their exposure and genetic makeup was also discussed.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like more information on how to explore you DNA and epigenetics and how this can help you understand your health.

Please take about 2 minutes and watch this excellent video.

Your Diet is only as good as your Digestion

Your diet is only as good as your digestion. This means that even though you are eating healthy, nutrient dense food, you may not be absorbing all the great nutrients in the meal.

We need to digest, break down the food we eat to release the nutrients that the body needs to function optimally. Poor digestion can lead to many common symptoms:

  • gas, bloating
  • constipation, diarrhea
  • lack of energy
  • skin issues
  • reflux
  • food sensitivities

There are many digestive enzyme blends on the market and you need to choose the right blend for you and your diet.

Some examples of diets that require different enzyme mixes includes Keto, Paleo, high protein, vegetarian.

Here is short video discusses the benefits of enzymes and helps you choose the proper enzyme blend to use.
