Flora Says: Immune Yourself
I don’t care how you do it, and I don’t care who you get it from or what you use to do it, but get whatever you need to IMMUNE YOURSELF!
Honestly, for the last two weeks, I have been spinning. I am trying to calm myself down and stop focusing on this horrible news cycle and it’s so ‘effin hard, but I have resolved to:
- Turn off the TV and take a break from my computer and phone.
- Go outside and sit in the sun watch the squirrels and wonder at the beauty of our world.
- Focus on small projects – I’ve been wanting to create an essential oil bug spray that is effective AND doesn’t smell horrible, so I’ll start back working on that.
- Park My Phone (I’m treating it like an old-fashioned hard line phone – I have stopped carrying it around with me and checking it every 10 minutes.
- Focus on What I Can Do (Product development)
- Figure Out A Way To Help Others (We will soon be back to baking goodies)
- Eat A LOT of garlic and turmeric and get the juicer out for fresh organic veggie juice.
- Drink a LOT of tea, including my own 🙂
- Medicate often. I send a puff of thanks to The Great Green Gods of Ganja for access to Medical Marijuana here in Colorado.

SARS-CoV-2: How A Person’s Immune System Defeated The Virus
Medical News Today Article (Written by Maria Cohut, Ph.D. on March 19, 2020 – Fact checked by Rita Ponce, Ph.D.)
Although some people who contract SARS-CoV-2 experience serious symptoms, others are able to recover after a fairly short period of time. A new study shows how the immune system of one otherwise healthy person was able to fight the virus within days.
The researchers found that during days 7–9 following symptom onset, there was an increase in immunoglobulins — which are the most common type of antibodies — rushing to fight the virus.
This increase in immunoglobulins persisted up to day 20 after symptom onset, according to the analyses.
At days 7–9 following symptom onset, a large number of specialized helper T cells, killer T cells, and B cells — all of which are crucial immune cells — were also active in the patient’s blood samples.
This suggested that the patient’s body had been using many different “weapons” effectively against the new virus.
“Three days after the patient was admitted, we saw large populations of several immune cells, which are often a tell-tale sign of recovery during seasonal influenza infection, so we predicted that the patient would recover in 3 days, which is what happened,” notes Dr. Nguyen.
