Covid-19 is real and so are natural immune strengtheners. Grab these power foods at your local supermarkets or nearby farms.

If you have a cell phone and wired with social media, chances are that several images and videos of how some people are fighting Covid-19 with homemade solutions are flying across your devices by now. From crazy ideas like using cow dumps to the ridiculous ones like drinking vodka. Another one came out lately: drink tea first thing in the morning, and then fast for a few hours. The truth is it’s impossible to track and measure what works at this time. Even if one concoction works for someone, it’s hard to know if it’ll work for others.

Whether or not a homemade concoction works, however, it’s insane to condemn the continuous consumption of power fruits and herbs to boost immunity simply because the popular science is yet to do the “deeper studies” on it or because the biggest philanthropists are yet to fund the research. The so called chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine which had been well tested by popular scientists, and even once pushed by the President of the United States as a treatment that can “help” treat Covid-19 has apparently sent many to their graves.

According to experts, Covid-19 is novel which explains why nobody knows precisely what works yet. In the hospital, when a patient is confronted with death, and options are very limited, and the medical team are raising against time, everything goes.
