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.

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.
