Covid Survivors

June 19, 2020

 

 

 

Recently my sister-in-law and her husband were affected with Covid-19. Both are doing better now and I thought I'd love to share what tips Debra might have for all of us. She is always on the forefront of the next good product. I love her attention to detail and the research she puts into it. She is by trade a meticulous dentist : A Prosthodontist in Manhattan with pretty high line exquisite taste. (May I add)..
Here I chit chat and banter..with Deb

Deb what are your favorite products right now and why?

Puressentiel Spray
I discovered this anti-bacterial/viral spray at a favorite haunt in St Barths many years ago and was immediately hooked on the clean, almost intoxicating smell. Made from essential oils, it's all natural and aroma-therapeutic.

Do Terra Adaptiv
I use this roll-on for my pulse points for its' immediate calming effect. It's been a much needed companion over these past stressful weeks.

Breathe
Just a few whiffs of this oil blend with eucalyptus and laurel leaf has helped clear my airways, especially since losing my sense of taste and smell from the corona virus. Also it can be great protection against seasonal and environmental threats.

Lemongrass 
Love this fragrance and add it to my tea or hot water for the digestive benefits and as a tonic.

Melaleuca 
Also known as tea tree, and used for many skin ailments, if you add a few drops to the top of your head, it is supposed to help clear away inflammation. I use it right before bedtime and rub into my scalp.

What helped you during Covid, any self remedy, self soothing?

Using all the products mentioned above, drinking hot water with lemongrass all day long, meditating when the going gets rough, even by only taking 10 deep cleansing breaths and certain visualizations that were taught to me by an "energy expert".

My most intense symptoms with Covid-19 were stomach upset, fever and headaches but they seemed to resolve on day 5. My husband took a worse turn on day 8 and had to be hospitalized. This was probably the scariest time of my life trying to understand and advocate for him while not being able to be physically there. I had no choice but to maintain a positive outlook. Luckily I had a great support system with family, my kids, friends and amazing smart professionals.

Also as a dental professional, If you think you may have been exposed to or are expressing any Covid-19 symptoms, an easy at home transmission prevention to reduce the oral bacteria is to rinse your mouth with 1% hydrogen peroxide for 1 minute. You can do this a couple of times a day.

Debs Tips to keep your pearly whites gleaming and healthy:

No confinement laziness! Brush AND floss twice daily, especially at night before sleeping since our salivary action slows down when we sleep and bacteria can proliferate and cause cavities and gum problems. 

Get those whitening kits out and give yourself a smile booster-It's a guaranteed self esteem prop!

Also recommended by Dr.Cohn:

The oral mouth rinse CLO-SYS- non-alcoholic, unflavored, safe for kids and anti-bacterial.

What's your workout regime?

Yoga poses and music. Down dogs, warriors, planks and side planks and some inversions when I’m stressed and need to get the blood flowing the other way!
