Note: Each individual may get affected by the virus differently, so please exercise caution and follow your own regimen. This is only narrating an individuals journey through COVID-19.
The Virus Does Most Damage In The First 6-8 Days
“I am told that the virus does whatever damage it has to do within the first 6 to 8 days. After that, the virus may remain in the body in a less effective form up to 6 weeks and all tests done till then may still show positive,” Amir’s post informed. “However, once the fever is normal without medication for more than three days the virus no longer remains contagious enough to infect others.”
Wearing A Mask Is Essential
“Care regarding mask and social distancing must be maintained as one can get re-infected,” he wrote. “Since this is a new phenomenon, new theories come out almost every day. As soon as you detect any of the COVID-19 symptoms please isolate immediately and get tested.”
You Need The Right Medical Care & Nutrition
“I took steam for ten minutes followed with salt and hot water gargle six times a day,” Amir said. “Drank hot green tea with Haldi, ginger and honey at least 12 to 16 cups a day. Had 2.5 litres of water. Vit c 1000 cc twice daily, Surbex Z religiously every day. Had good meals with eggs and a lot of meat. Yakhni two cups.”
Keep Yourself Fit & Positive
“I Exercised and did deep breathing every day,” Amir wrote. ” I Counted breaths per minute every two hours ( should be between 12 to 20 ). Checked oxygen absorption as well. Kept a very positive mind and worked out of my room regularly.”
Keep Yourself Isolated
“I stayed in one room for 21 days but washed clothes made the room cleaned the bathroom and washed dishes and disinfected the area very day. This kept the virus contained in one room and protected others,” he explained. “Food was left outside my door and nothing left my room once it had entered. All this kept me busy and active. Which is necessary to fight this virus. Remember there is no medicine except your own immune system.”
Do NOT Use Sana Maki Leaves
“It is commonly circulated to take Sana Maki leaves as a brew to combat COVID. Please DO NOT take this. Senna leaves are a very strong laxative. It is used to clean the stomach before operations etc. Remember COVID is a RESPIRATORY infection and cannot be cured by gastrointestinal cleansing,” Amir cautioned. “This brew will only give you severe diarrhoea and intense stomach ache. I had a near-death experience when I could not even retain water and was flushing out everything 6 to 8 times an hour. Nearly passed out due to dehydration and pain.”
