We are in the midst of a pandemic–but the virus’ genetic sequences suggest this novel pathogen is related to the SARS and MERS coronaviruses of years past.
At that time we continued to receive anecdotal reports of the differences it made in the quality of life of individuals taking hyperimmune egg. We are hearing similar reports today.
Symptoms may be minimal or severe, and include cough, fever and persistent pain or pressure in the chest, and shortness of breath. When individuals are severely ill and/or have medical issues, their infection may result in death.
This virus is highly contagious and spreading like “wildfire”. Uncertainty about the incubation period, (one asymptomatic individual in isolation tested positive after a 38-day incubation period) is particularly relevant since the longer incubation period complicates matters even more. Additionally, the WHO is concerned about a number of cases without any clear epidemiological link.
A balanced immune response is the only way your body defends itself against infections. Even if you do become infected, your body is more likely to able resolve the infection more completely if the immune system is functioning optimally.
By taking some of the steps below, the body’s ability to defend itself and balance immune function will hopefully make a difference.
