Hello Reader,

In last week's newsletter I discussed some of the actions you can take to help protect yourself from the coronavirus. I want to update that with important additional information that can also be helpful— including a very helpful prescription treatment that you may be starting to hear about.

Let me begin by emphasizing again how critically important it is to your immune system that you have optimal levels of zinc, vitamins A, D, C and E, and that you have healthy adrenal function (all of which you can get in the Energy Revitalization System™ vitamin powder and Adrenaplex®).

Zinc Promotes a Healthy Immune System

Zinc is important to supporting a healthy immune system, the system you depend on in defending against coronavirus. In the face of this pandemic, I would reommend that you "load" your system with zinc by taking 50-100 mg of zinc a day for 2-3 weeks (as long as this doesn't cause stomach upset). After that, a much smaller daily dose would be fine (such as the 15 mg of zinc that you get from one drink using the Energy Revitalization System vitamin powder drink mix). This outstanding multi contains optimal levels of vitamin A, C, D, E, and selenium. It also has a little bit of copper to prevent problems with too much zinc. Basically, it has all the key nutrients needed at the perfect levels to optimize immunity.

Also helpful is to suck on zinc lozenges (if you can find them) whenever you're out of the house or in social situations where coronavirus might be a concern.

Social Distancing

Many of us with CFS and fibromyalgia have experienced the angst of needing to be housebound, forced to practice our own form of "social distancing." Unfortunately, everyone else is about to get a taste of what we've had to go through.
