The whole world is panicking over the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are now talking about a pandemic and this ambient psychosis does not really help your daily life.

In view of this context, I wanted to share with you elements of understanding on the protection of this virus.

The main objective is to calm your mind by bringing you several elements allowing you to gain confidence in yourself.

This article will help you strengthen your immune system, an essential part of your body that will protect you from many other things as well.

This is a sharing of information that can probably help you and your loved ones.
However I point out that this article is only informative and that the elements which it contains must be treated thus and do not replace in any case the follow-up of a doctor.

During this one I will approach different subjects that you may not be familiar with, the objective being to get straight to the point, I will let you do your own research in order to clarify them …

I made sure to popularize, as much as possible, the technical side so that it is easily understandable by the majority of the population.

If you liked this article, share it with as many people as possible, by any means, the world needs this kind of critical information.

Take care of yourself and your loved ones,

What is a virus ?

Viruses are microscopic infectious agents made up of genetic material (DNA or RNA) surrounded by a protective envelope.

Viruses can only reproduce in host cells (infected cells).

Having no system to ensure their own replication, they use the resources of the cells they parasite. For this reason, they are generally considered not to be alive.

The cell executes the genetic program of the virus: it thus reproduces the latter in numerous copies which can leave this cell to infect new ones.

There are several types of virus depending on the characteristics of their DNA and their RNA, including retroviruses (HIV, etc.), adenoviruses and coronaviruses. Some viruses are harmless and others are pathogenic.
Some viral infections, such as HIV, influenza, gastroenteritis, are contagious, others are not.

How to protect yourself from a virus ?

Wearing a paper mask cannot really protect a human being and replace his immune system.

In fact, most of our immune system is made up of mucous membranes, which are the surface of our skin, our bronchi, our intestines.

This system is made up of microbes, bacteria and fungi which protect us from external bodies which may or may not enter our bodies.

Why is our immune system no longer protecting us as before ?

Since the growth of the vaccination system, by dint of vaccinating more people, we have been selecting viral and bacterial strains.

Doing so does not allow our bodies to express their full potential for protection, effectively it will respond to a specific need for protection and will therefore adapt less to changes.

The same is true for antibiotics.

Observation on our environment

Being in a constantly sanitizing environment cannot allow our immune system to express its full potential, microbes, bacteria being an integral part of our being.

In addition, vaccination, the use of antibiotics, creates increasingly powerful sources of microbes, which are now spreading at great speed.

The adaptive capacity of our body is therefore weakened by these factors, coupled with constant stress, exhaustion, a diet low in micronutrients, this cocktail may not be beneficial for our immune system in the long term.

How to protect our body ?

As you will understand, the immune system is the key to protecting our body, so take care of it.

You will find below some elements that I can advise you to strengthen it:

First of all I specify that this article the following information must be treated in an informative way and does not replace in any case the follow-up of a doctor.


Limit direct contacts

Goodbye to handshakes, hugs and the like, not knowing the current state of your immune system, I prefer to warn you.

Reduce your stress level

When faced with a potential danger, a stress reaction, a defense mechanism, is triggered in your body, called flight.

First of all, norepinephrine and adrenaline, stress hormones, will quickly spread.

Then cortisol, made by the adrenal glands, is secreted by the body.

In the event that your daily life comes down to a series of stressful actions, that you experience this sensation, then your body will secrete cortisol constantly.

This will lead to a chronic increase in cortisol levels, causing serious health concerns with it.

Chronic increases in cortisol levels may be linked to compromised immune functions, hypertension, insomnia, heart disease and obesity.

For this I advise you to turn off your TV, most of the information that is broadcast there is anxiety-provoking and will not bring you anything good in this kind of situation. However, you can always consult the news briefly on the internet to keep yourself informed of the situation.

Wear a mask in very polluted cities and places

Fine particles (PM2.5), which are particularly present in the air of big cities, represent a real danger for human beings.

The air we breathe in is filtered through the nose, which only retains particles larger than 10 microns (10 thousandths of a millimeter). The others arrive in the bronchi which defend themselves by producing an excess of mucus.
A feeling of irritation, coughing intended to reject the viscous liquid can then appear.

As a precautionary measure, I advise you, if you are in a big city, to equip yourself with a mask in order to filter fine particles (PM2.5) when you go outside your home. There are also electronic boxes for measuring the level of fine particles.

For information, in healthy people, the immune system quickly neutralizes these deposits and removes them from the lungs.

Limit exposure to electromagnetic waves

5G has arrived in several countries in the world, we already know the impact of electromagnetic waves on humans, this new technological advance is not without consequences for our body.

Electromagnetic waves stress our bodies and weaken our immune system.
In order not to further weaken your immune system.

In order to preserve you I advise you:

  • To stop wifi at home when you do not have the utility.
  • Use the airplane mode of your phone when it is in your pocket.
  • When you need to call someone, use a wired handsfree or your phone’s speaker.
  • Avoid using bluetooth equipment (connected watch, headsets, headphones, etc.) for an extended period of time.

Keep in mind that 100 wifi hotspots at a distance of 500m will be less harmful to you than a hotspot 2 meters from you.

For further :

Intermittent fasting

“There is no evidence that fasting is dangerous but there is great evidence that it is beneficial” Valter Longo.

With this type of fast goodbye breakfast and / or the morning snack.

The goal is, in this case, that your body reaches the autophagy phase.

Indeed during this phase, after 14–16h of fasting, your sugar stocks (glycogen) will be exhausted in your liver and your muscles, your body will start to feed itself.

At this moment it will draw its fuel from your fats which contain the minerals and water necessary for the proper functioning of your cells.

During this phase, your body will also eradicate the most degenerate proteins from your body, as well as viruses, parasites, bacteria, nature is so well done.

Regenerate your immune system

1 – A remarkable study on several points shows that fasting for 3 days can regenerate the entire immune system.

Scientists at the University of Southern California (USC) say this and this discovery is particularly awaited by patients with weakened immune systems, including cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.
Valter Longo, professor of gerontology and biological sciences at the USC School of Gerontology Davis explains:

Fasting gives the green light to stem cells to activate and begin to proliferate until they rebuild the entire immune system.

And the other good news: the body gets rid of old, damaged and ineffective parts during the fast.

If you start from an immune system that is badly damaged by chemotherapy or aging, fasting cycles can literally generate a new immune system.

So “nothing simpler”, if you are already used to fasting for more than 24 hours of course …

Otherwise I advise you to proceed step by step, increasingly intermittent fasting, then fasting for a day, two days, do not hesitate to consult a specialist for this.

2 – According to this article which was published in the New England Journal of Medicine, Rafael de Cabo and Mark Mattson reviewed several fasting strategies that have been tested in recent years.

The news continues to be very positive, intermittent fasting would also allow you to regenerate your immune system, here are two types of fasting that you can practice:

  • Daily: For example, lunch from 12 noon and finish dinner at 8 p.m. so that you can fast overnight at noon (4 p.m. fast).
  • 2 times a week: Fast for 24 hours for 2 days a week and eat normally the other 5 days.

The sleep

Resting is essential, effectively, without a battery your vehicle will not be able to move very far and your immune system needs this rest to regenerate.

Indeed, during this period, the brain secretes hormones that help the immune system to fight against viral and bacterial infections.

Optimize your sleep by using:

  • Sleep in a completely dark room, you should not be able to see your hand if you place it in front of your face.
  • Wear a sleep mask.
  • Use hearing protection.
  • Keep at least 1 meter away from your bed all kinds of elements generating electromagnetic waves (telephone, bedside lamp, socket outlet, …).
  • Activate airplane mode on your phone (deactivate gps, bluetooth and wifi).
  • Don’t charge your phone next to your bed.
  • Meditate 10 min before going to bed.
  • Use blue anti-light glasses, those with orange lenses, at least 2 hours before going to bed. This will allow your stock of melatonin (sleep hormone) to be optimal to quickly reach a deep sleep and therefore more restful.

Nourish its bacterial flora

Have a massive supply of micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, trace elements).

To do so, I advise you to consume more fruits and vegetables in the raw state and without cooking.

I will not support all the nutritional part in this article, but know that cooking, beyond 90 °, destroys a large part of the micronutrients, essential elements for the optimal functioning of
our body and immune system.

Not to mention the presence of Maillard molecules that the cooking process will create.
Maillard molecules are insoluble bodies created when a mixture of sugar and protein is heated to more than 60 °.

I recommend the use of soft cooking such as steam, poached, water bath, low temperature oven.

Daily intake of vitamin D

Vitamin D plays an essential role for our protection, indeed it will activate our immune system, through T lymphocytes, cells of immunity, which are responsible for killing bacteria and viruses.

Exposure to the sun on as much surface as possible, in fact the greater the surface not covered by a garment, the more your thyroid gland will be able to synthesize this vitamin.

If you are in a country where the sun is currently not very present I advise you to take a vitamin D supplement.

You can also eat the following foods: cod liver oil, herring, mackerel, sardines, salmon, tuna, dark chocolate (minimum 40%), raw egg yolk, mushroom.

Reduce / stop your sugar intake

The following study clearly shows the correlation between the level of blood sugar and the rate of infection with the influenza virus.

To summarize, the more you have high glucose levels in your body, the more you will be prey to viruses.

Few viruses can develop in an environment low in glucose, a ketogenic diet will be the most suitable to reach this stage. For this I advise you to be accompanied.


Faced with media propaganda, with information always as anxiety-provoking, many people find themselves panicking, which is a plague on our immune system.

This article is intended to be able to help the greatest number of people.

Keep in mind that prevention is the best way to protect yourself.

I hope you find this information understandable and useful. Now you have the keys that will allow you to be more serene for the future.

If you liked this article, share it with as many people as possible, by any means, the world needs this kind of critical information.

Stay calm, everything will be fine.

Take care of yourself and your loved ones,
