These remedies are suitable for all ages over the age of 12. For children, thankfully the COVID-19 represents very little challenge and most will experience little more than fever and a little cough. Should you wish to provide supplementation for a child, please use a proportionally reduced dosage based on weight.

The advice for adults, below are our recommendations for everyone and, it is hoped, will provide you with the ability to successfully deal with this new virus. For further information about each of the below, please follow the links. NAC is included and will be useful to assist in clearing the mucus and likely will be most useful when a cough develops. As the primary focus for the early stages of the illness which seems to focus in the back of the mouth, throat and sinuses, frequent gargling with warm or hot salt water, perhaps with a few drops of oil of oregano should be helpful. An alternate tea could be an infusion of chopped garlic sipped through the day. This should assist with social distancing!

These suggestions may be followed by everyone. For additional suggestions, please see Advanced Strategies.
