For centuries ancient cultures worshiped the sun. These people saw the sun as a source of life that was necessary to grow crops for food. The sun became thought of as a god that gives energy to the world around them. In modern times we do not worship the sun as ancient cultures did, but it still plays a crucial role in our lives and our health. The sun is still necessary to grow the foods we need to sustain ourselves, as well as provide us with the best source of vitamin D. This vitamin functions as a hormone, and every single cell in your body has a receptor for it. Many of the natural mechanisms in the body require vitamin D like muscle movement and proper immune function.

For months, ideas on treatments for COVID-19 have been tossed around by many doctors, medical professionals, politicians, and other public figures. Antimalarial medications and other viral vaccines seem to be suggested the most and have the best possibility to work as a treatment. Hydroxychloroquine was the antimalarial medication that came up the most. Initial test trials found it to be effective in some patients with COVID-19. Now a large study suggests that hydroxychloroquine doesn't help with COVID-19. It seems that this virus is strange in many ways and acts differently in people, making it hard to come up with standard treatment. Right now, the most promising research may come from an organic herbal tonic made from indigenous plants in Madagascar.

It can be hard to get in enough nutrients or meals in a day with the fast-paced grab it and go lifestyle that most of us lead in 2020. Meal replacing products such as bars, shakes, and other drinks can ensure you are getting the correct amount of vitamins, minerals, and protein in a day. Diet plans can be made with these products to achieve an individual's desired fitness results. Sadly many of these products are loaded with refined sugars, GMOs, preservatives, artificial colors, artificial flavors, and more! Luckily mother nature provides organic foods and superfoods with all the nutrients we need for a day.

With the world on high-alert due to the spread of COVID-19 and it's effects on the human respiratory system, it is the perfect time to cover some of the best natural methods of keeping your respiratory system healthy. This series of organs is responsible for taking in oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide, with the primary organ of this system being the lungs. They work with the circulatory system to pump oxygen-rich blood to all cells in the body. Oxygen is needed to sustain our bodies, and we rely on these systems, along with our lungs, to maintain our oxygen levels. For these reasons, a properly functioning respiratory system is essential for optimal human health.
