In this video series we will be approaching the core strategies and an action plan to deal with the coronavirus for people with diabetes or other high-risk individuals.

Another one of the items on the action plan every night: I am doing hydrotherapy actually every night and every morning. You have just done a wonderful service to mobilize your immune system to produce more antibodies against the many viruses that you’ve already been exposed to. Again, assume we’ve all been exposed already. Because I think a lot of us already have been and we just got lucky this first time through the second time though could be worse. So I follow these strategies and every morning when I take my shower:
I set the water three minutes hot, right on my chest and throat, three minutes hot -as hot as I could take it- then I turn it all the way cool for about 30 seconds and then I wet my head and my hair with cold water to cool me down and then, go hot again, three minutes hot, 30 seconds cold, back and forth and with 30 seconds to 60 seconds cold. I do that. I try to do that twice a day.
In my mind, I’m thinking that I’m wasting my time. I need to get to work, I need to do this, I need to do that. But I do it – even if I’m late to work – you know why?
Because if I don’t stay well how am I going to help other people? If you’re the main caregiver in your home, and especially mothers, if you don’t stay well, how are you going to help your family?
In fact, you’re going to be hurting your family by infecting them and maybe other people in your community, in your neighborhood or in your extended family. We have to stay well and we have to invest time and effort into it. That is one of the actionable items.
You see everything is so interwoven that it’s hard to write out a list because they all impact each other.
If you’re not sleeping well, if you’re agitated, and you can’t rest well, then what you do is you’d do the hydrotherapy and that just puts you in a state of Nirvana. It just makes you feel so good! At least a lot better than you were earlier and people are finally able to sleep.
Now, another key part of this hydrotherapy strategy, whether it’s a hot cold shower, or getting in a hot tub, going between a hot tub and a cold tub, or going into a hot hot jacuzzi and going into a cold pool, or however you decide to do it, or doing foam and patient pads on your chest and your back, back and forth, -that’s a very good method-, especially for somebody who’s critically ill: You know, you can’t be going into a hot tub and jumping into the pool, you gotta do it in their bed where they are and treat them in their bed.
As soon as you’re done with the treatment, regardless of how healthy or sick you are, you have to sleep for at least 20 minutes, just rest completely for 20 minutes. That stimulates the B cells of your immune system to start producing a tremendous amount of antibodies that are earmarks, specifically for that coronavirus – Covid-19 virus, those antibodies will latch on to that virus and won’t let go.
