MEDICAL CARE DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC –
TOP 10 HEALTH TIPS

Written by: Dr Elias Tsakos
Inspired by : Hippocrates, Ancient Greek folk and Leonardo Da Vinci

1. STAY HOME & COMPLY WITH YOUR NATIONAL GUIDELINES.

Home is our own home, we keep the social “physical” distance.
We do not visit relatives, friends etc and we by keeping healthy we help ourselves , our loved ones, our country and the world to get over the pandemic.
We protect the vulnerable by keeping physical distance from them.
We substitute the physical distance with emotional and spiritual contact.
We support and reassure everyone in our environment via telephone, social media, etc..

“Extreme remedies are very appropriate for extreme diseases” – Hippocrates

2. WASH YOYR HANDS OFTEN AND AVOID TOUCHING YOUR FACE, NOSE AND MOUTH.

Coronavirus is very sensitive to soap, so let’s go ahead and eliminate it.
Also we keep all surfaces, clothes, various objects eg mobile phones, watches, etc and our homes clean and disinfected.

“Cleanliness makes you half Royal” – Greek folk quote

3. DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS

This refers to mainly water but also tea, fresh juices, soups from fresh vegetables etc
but please NO Alcohol.

“Water is the driving force of all nature” – Leonardo Da Vinci

4. WATCH YOUR NUTRITION & DIET

Healthy shopping and healthy cooking could be a great way to keep us creative and occupied. We take advantage of the spare time to educate ourselves through books, internet etc and consult a nutritionist if need be.
The lock-down is a great opportunity for a kick start to healthy nutrition and diet! This shall help our immune system fight off the virus, keep our mind & spirit healthy and carry on the benefits for the rest of our lives.

“Let food be thy Medicine and Medicine be thy food” – Hippocrαtes

5. EXERCISE

This is a unique opportunity to start a daily programme of exercise (around 30 min daily every day).
Brisk walking, running, cycling , stretching, yoga etc shall help our mind and body manage this challenging situation. And will make us feel great too !

“Walking is man’s best Medicine” – Hippocrαtes

6. BOOST YOUR HEALTH AND IMMUNE SYSTEM

Depending on our individual circumstances we may benefit from daily Vitamin intake , either through healthy nutrition as described above or with the aid of Vitamin supplements.
We may wish to boost our immune system with daily Vit D, Vit C, Vit B complex, Selenium, Vit E and Zinc intake (individual needs and dosages may vary). Regarding fertility you may wish to consider Folic Acid (suitable for all women wishing to conceive).

“A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings” – Hippocrαtes

7. KEEP SCREEN EXPOSURE TO A MINIMUM

We try to decrease the time we spend watching television and/or surfing the internet and social Media. We eliminate screen exposure especially in the morning and within 1-2 hours before retiring to bed at night.
Avoiding screens shall assist you to improve your hormonal balance and avoid unnecessary stress. There is no substitute for a good book , a novel, history or travel reading or even taking up a new skill .

“Everything in excess is opposed by nature” – Hippocrαtes

8. START A NEW PROJECT

New ideas and new tasks in life can make us happy; maybe a small garden, an online language course ( Greek sounds fun to learn ! …) and many more.
There are some interesting options ranging from cooking lessons, to travel portals, yoga courses, book reading, music and many more.
It is entirely up to us to make the downtime a positive and creative experience and promote our physical psychological, mental and spiritual health by using our natural forces.

“The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well” – Hippocrαtes

9. KEEP IN TOUCH WITH YOUR MEDICAL TEAM

Most Medical Clinics provide online support services for their patients.
We request update on our situation and condition and share anxieties, questions & thoughts. Even us Doctors consult our fellow doctors regarding our individual issues. We don’t have to and you should not go through this unprecedented situation alone.
We talk about our queries and concerns and take advantage of the technology for education and coaching through attending Clinic Webinars and one-to-one online Consultations. Only Medical advice provided by Medical Doctors with active Registration & License to practice may be safe and reliable.

“There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge and the latter ignorance” – Hippocrαtes

10. TIME IS THE BEST MEDICINE

So, here we are all; taking time to reflect and pause from our previously busy lives.
We have the opportunity to connect with ourselves, our families, our friends.
We have the opportunity to connect with nature, connect with the world, connect with civilizations, with art, with history.
And stay at home, allowing time and opportunity to work for the world and to help fight the pandemic.
We need to be healthy and strong after the pandemic and remain ready & fully charged for the rest of our lives.

“Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity” – Hippocrαtes
