Expert session Questions and Answers

Okay, their immunity needs to be improved.

Vitamin C, zinc, selenium, echinacea will help.

He needs nutrients. Vit C, B complex, zinc, selenium, plus herbs are recommended.

Yes. The same nutrients I mentioned above plus remove all forms of dairy.

When you are depleted you will need to take supplements initially, afterwards your body can get nutrients from food.

Zinc and vitamin C improve recovery time quickly. Fresh amla juice and oranges are high in Vit C. Also make sure they are getting enough Vit D. Sun exposure plus supplements might be required if deficiency is very bad.

That depends on level of deficiency

Citrus fruits, amla especially is very good for Vit C, for Zinc pumpkin seeds are a good source. Here is a general recommendation for improving immunity: Lots of citrus fruits- Vit C, lots of yellow orange fruits and vegetables- pumpkin, carrot- for Vitamin A, nuts and seeds for zinc, brazil nuts for selenium specially. Avoid dairy as it often feeds pathogens and creates mucus in the body. Remove all processed food from diet and any form of sugar. This will help improve immunity. In addition, here is something I want to say. Viruses are microscopic beings that lack the capacity to thrive and reproduce outside of a host body.  Every human being is already a host to trillions of different viruses. We actually have 360 trillions as a part of our microbiome.

We don’t have to fear them, including this coronavirus. One more way to build immunity is reduce stress.

If it’s a physical issue then an ENT is the best person to take a look at it

We are offering free consultations for specific questions after the session.

Ideally, yes.

That requires a change in eating habits.

Honey is okay to have if it is raw, organic and unprocessed

Please contact us for a free consultation as there might be underlying reasons including pre-diabetes that is triggering this.

Please register for the consult as this is a specific case that needs digging deeper.

It is absolutely okay to give grapes and oranges and lemon water. None of these cause a cold. These are loaded with immunity boosting phytonutrients and antioxidants and they help the body more than harm it.

Absolutely. We’ve healed and reversed so many diabetes cases with the power of fruits. Mangoes are okay too. Fruits are unnecessarily villainized. The key is to get to the root cause of your diabetes and find out what’s causing it. Once we find that out then we can reverse it. Especially if it is type-2.

Yes, sure. There was another question about pollen allergy too so in our experience we’ve seen that if a liver is not working well, allergies are worse. As the liver heals, allergies reduce.

Cut down on fat, include more fresh fruits and veggies but I’d honestly recommend first looking at your blood tests and then figure out the strategy.

If there’s one thing the last 2 weeks have shown us, it’s that even a tiny virus can create unprecedented levels of fear. Here’s the thing, *There is no need to be afraid of it if you have a strong immune system.

And that’s the _root cause of most people’s fear_- the ‘not knowingness’ of whether they/ their loved ones *have a chance against an invisible virus.* Given how easily the current one is spreading, most of us are going to be exposed to it. Relax though, because Thrive’s here to help you shield yourself. *Our personalized coaching program will teach you how to strengthen your immune system within a month with food, herbs, supplements and other practices.* Do this not only for yourself but also give this program to your spouse’s/ parents or anyone whose life you are worried about.

I would recommend staying off any vaccines altogether. Vaccines contain mercury, aluminium and undisclosed ingredients. Many of them have shown to trigger autism, adhd and other associated neurological impairments plus a whole host of side effects. Vaccination can cause a whole lot of problems. It is better to build immunity naturally and allow a viral infection to come and go rather than vaccinate against it.

Yes, it is absolutely okay to not vaccinate. The website I shared earlier has many many research papers that showcase why vaccines are just another way for big pharma to make money and the reason I opened the topic here is. Do not take any of the new vaccines that will come up for this virus that’s causing so much panic.

Turmeric, ginger, raw garlic, oranges, organic strawberries, lots of rest, whole grains like jowar, bajra, dals and pulses.

For now we have no control over those. Yes I know. For now, we can refuse the ones that are not mandatory.

Please register for consultation. Needs a longer discussion.

None. Just make sure they are organic.

Yes you can. Depends on the brand and the ingredients. I can’t make that recommendation here. They are expensive because they aren’t local, they come from the US/ Canada.

It’s a super potent antiviral made with a fruit called elderberries. You’ll find it on amazon as either elderberry syrup or sambucus.

It’s a habit we have.There are many non dairy alternatives for curd. Cashew curd, sunflower seed curd, watermelon seeds curd. They sound weird but taste yum.

Yes, I know. A lot of medical professionals recommend curd for its probiotic benefits. About 4-5 years back even I used to recommend it.
