So you are wondering about detoxing from your Covid shot or doing some preparation beforehand to minimise the potential side effects.
Or maybe you are standing your ground and not having it but want to have the best chance and build up your immunity.

No matter what you want to do when it comes to the SARS CoV-2 virus or the Covid jab, it is your freedom of choice. Respect to you for whatever you do and that is what a vaccination is for: to protect those that have it.

So let's get into what we can do from a naturopath angle or an integrative approach. We are not going to get into discussions on the multitude of other related discussions on this heated topic!

We will  just  discuss things as we would have done in 2019 for any other jab such as the influenza vaccination or MMR vaccination or virus such as Dengue fever or glandular fever (EBV).

So lets get started on the facts.

What Is The Latest Research Saying About the SARS CoV-2 Virus?

The SARS CoV-2 virus is from a group of viruses which stem from the coronavirus. This particular strain is considered more virulent because it has been shown to cause pneumonia which can be deadly and the disease which is more commonly called covid-19 or Coronavirus Disease - 2019. 

Interestingly the first coronavirus was first studied in the 1960s and was known as the common cold. The difference with the current SARS CoV-2 virus is the variation and mutation to a more serious human respiratory disease. Previous variants include the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and SARS outbreak in Hong Kong in March 2003.

Reflecting back to January 2020, fear was high and there was a lot of unknown. Now almost 2 years later, evidence is growing on multiple tools to help give patients a better outcome.

The best global research hub available with research updated almost daily is online here with 1157 studies at the time of writing this blog post. There are studies being added regularly on early treatment options and it is uncensored hard data.

What is the Research Saying About the Covid Vaccinations?

As mentioned previously, fear was high in January 2020 and the globe was rushing to save humanity. You might have even seen those videos from China of people falling over in the street and it was enough to scare anyone.

So the race was on to rush an effective treatment and the favourite was a vaccination. Although we are told "it's safe and effective" it is still in a global trial and data is still being gathered to the various vaccination brands and types.

Some early brands were questioned from the market for being dangerous such as the Johnson and Johnston - https://7news.com.au/lifestyle/health-wellbeing/authorities-warn-johnson-johnson-coronavirus-vaccine-may-have-potential-rare-neurological-complication-c-3396815

Natural Tools For Covid

We used to reach for Vitamin C and hot chicken soup for our winter sniffles but now we have a new pathogen in the world, SARS CoV-2. The coronavirus is not new as a pathogen, but the strain is new in it's virulence.

So what to do

Our neighbours were easy to talk with and we would never dream of asking them if they had HIV or herpes. It is actually still illegal under discrimination laws and human rights violations but now in 2021 it all seems ok to bypass that law for the greater good? 

We never asked our work colleagues if they were getting their flu vaccination either, even if the WHO estimated 250,000 to 500,000 deaths annually from the influenza virus.
