My Antiviral Solution to the Coronavirus (COVID 19)

By Nadia Al-Samarrie

I am traveling in Europe to four cities in the next three weeks. Although I had no plans to go to Italy, a good friend had to cancel her flight to meet me in London. This was before her small town in Italy is identified as one of the cities that has a travel ban.

Similar to the United States, the run on surgical masks to prevent the infectious airborne Coronavirus is creating a shortage in Europe.

The American Surgeon General tweeted:

“Seriously, people- STOP BUYING MASKS!

They are NOT effective in preventing general public from
catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can’t get them to care for sick
patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!”

What Are My Options Now?

I am going back to basics by boosting my immune system with vitamins and a diet that will keep me healthy. In addition to carrying an antiseptic spray, I am washing my hands for twenty seconds, avoiding touching my face and drink lots of medicinal herbal teas.

If you have an autoimmune disease like diabetes, your immune system is already compromised. Speak to your healthcare professional about which vitamins, supplements, and foods will not interfere with the medication you are on.

A deficiency in Vitamin C can further compromise your immune system, while Vitamin E can prevent infections.

Instead of panicking, look at what you do have control over as a preventive measure that you can adopt immediately.

Vitamins That Boost Your Immune System

Vitamin C

Research shows Vitamin C keeps the heart, immune system, and eyes healthy.

Foods rich in Vitamin C are bell peppers, broccoli, brussels sprouts, chili peppers, guava, kale, kiwis, lemons, spinach, strawberries, sweet yellow potatoes, and oranges.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is an antioxidant, guarding your cells against being damaged by free radicals.

But be careful. Research shows taking large daily quantities of vitamin E may increase the likelihood of developing prostate cancer.

Foods rich in Vitamin E are kale, spinach, broccoli, leafy greens, nuts, some seeds. Some oils are more abundant in Vitamin E than others.


If you are 55 to 84 and have practiced a lifetime of exercise- a new study shows that your immune system can be just as strong as your youthful days. Contrary to the aging theory, your immune system does not have to decline with aging.

Complimentary Essential Oil Infusion Therapy Used to Counter the Flu

Essentials oils are used topically or infused in the air with water. Undiluted can irritate your skin or bother your lungs. Don’t run out and buy essential oils without checking in with your healthcare professional. If you have asthma or a blood pressure condition, know which oils are not recommended for your unique profile.
A little information does not go a long way. It is best to meet with a credentialed, certified essential oil specialist that has graduated from a reputable school. You need to be well informed about your medications first to be sure if essential oils may do more good than harm.

I use infusion therapy for common colds and the flu. I also keep a warm mist steamer on hand with eucalyptus oil for the nights my stuffy nose makes breathing difficult.

My Antiviral Solution to the Coronavirus 19 When Traveling

In Scotland, I made an appointment with a registered holistic and aromatherapy practitioner who made me a nasal inhaler that fights viruses and infections. Before giving me my personalized aromatherapy bacterial and viral essential oils, she conducted a full intake asking me about my medical and emotional history. After my consultation, I received a nasal inhaler to be used when traveling.

Which aromatherapy oils did she combine? Three ingredients; tree tea oil and eucalyptus to fight a viral and bacterial infections and Rosemary to boost my immune system as an additional anti-bacterial oil.

Don’t panic if you cannot get a mask to prevent an airborne virus or get a test to see if you are a carrier of the infection. Do what you can holistically by eating well, taking vitamins and checking in with your physician. Hopefully, by next year, there will be a flu vaccination to keep our minds at ease.
