Herbs for Coronavirus

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is special in many ways. First, it is a brand-new virus. We have never met the virus before. When the virus gets into our body, it can replicate rapidly and move beyond human immune defense mechanism. Second, it is highly transmissible. The tramission rate equal to or higher than 3, that is one people can cause three or more people to be infected. Third, the fatality rate is high. Based on WHO, it is about 3.4%. Flu fatality rate is about 0.1%. Coronavirus is about 30 times higher than that of flu.

      1. Please watch my new video “Coronavirus in
        Chelsea”. It’s bad everywhere but NYC is a real-life horror movie.
        It’s important to watch this from beginning to end. Please Share this video and Subscribe so I can make more of these videos, believe it or not, there are still people not taking Covid-19 seriously enough.

  2. Thank you for sharing this article with us on such an important topic .Coronavirus is in serious shape in the present world and I heard today that an invasion has also started in Bangladesh and I am very worried because I live in Bangladesh. It quickly disrupts people’s immunity and is highly transferable .It has no established treatment  .Herbs are the most widely used remedies .It’s me eating ginger, garlic, lemon, which fights the virus .Your article is really informative and very essential.

    Besides, I have learned more about your articles and I hope to get rid of this deadly virus by following them. May I share your article on my social media?

  3. Wow. This is an amazing article.
    The corona virus has unfortunately become the main topic and everyone is panicking. I think that the mass media does a lot of misinformation and people are scared and they resort to many methods.
    I want to tell you that I for 1 year every day consume garlic on an empty stomach. I know it is said to be the most natural antibiotic and I can tell you that I have not had any health problems. And now garlic is my only treatment against Corona virus and I always try to disinfect my hands and clothes.

  5. Thanks for this pertinent information regarding the coronavirus. I found out about a couple of case’s of this virus very close to where I live and have been concerned about it’s severity. The herbs that you mentioned sound like a good idea to implement in my diet as well as my family’s diet. 

    Herbs are an excellent way to protect yourself against viruses and I am excited about including them on my list of things to get, although I was never aware of the properties of licorice.

  6. As health officials are expecting traditional health care systems to be overwhelmed due to a coronavirus pandemic, it is good to know about all possible resources that can help treat symptoms. Keeping a strong and balanced immune system is key to effectively fighting off any virus, so knowing about helpful herbs for this can be beneficial to staying healthy (or recovering faster).

  7. Staying healthy is the major prevention against COVID-19. Like you mentioned, most of us use herbs to stay health, the magic herbs always do is to boast the general immune system of our body. When this is done the body is in a better position to fight disease, and the good thing about herbs is that they are not toxic to our system.

    You can take a lot of things like garlic, lemon and not think of adverse effect to your system

  8. At this point, I’m looking for anything that will help fight off the coronavirus or any other virus that is prevalent these days. I love that you provided a list of herbs that can help with just that. Garlic is definitely one of my favorites so I plan on getting as much of that as I can. I don’t use Ginger very much, but in this case it might be time to give it another chance. I love that lemon has lots of antioxidants and Vitamin C that can help with anyone’s immune system. Some of the others have surprised me such as licorice dandelion. Do you recommend anything else outside of herbs that are strong in Vitamin C like oranges?

    1. Yes, you should consume as many fresh vegetable as possible. Oranges, apples, and leaf veg are good sources of vitamin. Take whatever you like the best.

  9. Coronavirus, as you said, is a new virus and, we don’t have enough information yet to know what are best chances for prevention are beyond what the CDC has already told us BUT, I completely agree with you that natural anti-viral medicines are a huge boon to help us do our part.

    I eat garlic like it’s my job yep, raw included ha!  I haven’t had the flu in 12 years but, that doesn’t mean I’m not taking measures right now.  If we can prevent ourselves from getting the typical flu during flu seasons we may be strong enough to get through a coronavirus infection without it being fatal.

    Your list is great, I’d throw osha root and tumeric in there too!  Here’s to everyone’s Health and safety in 2020 and beyond!

From the statistics so far it appears to badly affect people with low immunity and with underlying health issues, however for the vast majority with a healthy immune system the effect is mild and the person recovers naturally. All the more reason why we should all work towards improving our immune system naturally and easily through natural sources such as this article points out. Thanks for the well researched and informative article.


  12. I was thinking of foods containing vitamin D since that directly strengthens your respiratory system and I’ve heard doctors advice taking supplements of vitamin D to protect yourself against the virus. I think there are types of mushrooms out there which can be a source of vitamin D as well (google tells me after sunlight exposure). So that would be my recommendation.

    1. Thanks for your suggestion. Yes, vitamin D is an immune enhancer. Many food are rich in vitamin D and also if you want, you could take vitamin supplements.

    From the article, I have learned a lot of knowledge. I can take proper steps to avoid corona. I can make awareness to my family members and villagers.

  15. Herbs have been in existence for quite a long while and the fact that they offer a much more diverse and alternative way to combating illnesses and even viruses like this is really good. I’m not sure anyone knew about this before because I am as sure as anything that this should have been considered by the WHO. I am surely going to share this post as widely as I can to reach out to as many people as possible thanks

  16. Hello there, Drugs are widely used to treat COVID-19 in China. The official claimed the patent herbal drugs can effectively relieve symptoms, such as fever, cough, and fatigue, and reduce the probability of patients developing severe conditions, but without giving further details. Thanks for sharing this awesome article I know it would help others.

  17. The fact that most of these things are normal things that everyone of us would have in our household yet we never tried them or try to use them as precautions to strengthen our immune system better against corona virus is actually not so good to see. However, this feels good on a general to see here. Thumbs up to you for giving so much detailed information here

  18. We’ll, I wasn’t expecting to see a post with this kind of name but seeing it doesn’t change the fact that we have not found a vaccine yet for it but we can still imoorve our immune system which I would suppose the different herbs you shared is looking to do. We’ll, these herbs don’t look like something that’s too hard to get around here.

  19. I have to say that ever since the covid 19 came out I have been taking care of my health more than ever. I see that most people that fall into the victim of this virus are those people who already have health complications so I do not want to be an easy target for this virus.

    Thanks for sharing all these herbs! Thank god that I have been eating all the herbs that you mentioned already especially ginger and garlic. I also drink lemon water daily and I also have an oregano in my patio and it is thriving. 

  20. I find it interesting that you say that corona virus has a fatality rate that is 30 times higher than flu, but seeing that this post was published in early March 2020, so some 6 months ago, this might need to be updated. The latest statistics indicate that flu has a higher death rate than Covid 19, unless you have different statistics that is current for September 2020. 

    A great list of herbs that can be used, I have personally been using turmeric as a great immune booster and anti inflammatory, so would like to hear your views on turmeric and corona virus.

  25. Hello,

    This is great. I live in a third world country and maybe because we do not have enough money to support giant pharmaceutical companies many people here rely on herbs as well as daily doses of fruits and vegetables to stay healthy and fight infections.

    Since this virus has hit our world I have certainly used a few. I have used garlic, onions, turmeric, black peppers, ginger, aloe and Chanka Pedra in my bid to remain healthy. I don’t recognize some of these names such as Rosemary and Astragalus Root so I am very happy I stumbled on this article. I will look into getting the new ones.

  26. This is great information on the present pandemic. Herbs have been used for thousands of years because of their ability to help the immune system to fight off viruses and other ailments. You have given excellent summaries of the herbs and their individual benefits. I use garlic, lemon, oregano and ginger all the time. The herbs are preferable to over the counter medications. Thank you for this wonderful post.

  27.  Herbal medicines and purified natural products provide a rich resource
     for novel antiviral drug development. Identification of the antiviral
     mechanisms from these natural agents has shed light on where they
     interact with the viral life cycle, such as viral entry, replication,
     assembly, and release, as well as on the targeting of
     virus–host-specific interactions.

  28. Hello, this is a very nice post on the best kinds of herbs that we can use to help us deal with coronavirus.  Although we can all see that the herbs cannot really kill it, we understand that using these will help us reduce the possibility of having it it even getting really sick from it.

Reading this article has been really amazing as I have been able to learn about the herbs for Corona virus.

  32. Globally, the use of herbs is not always adviced but what I can say is that herbs are truly underrated drugs. A lot of peple wouldn’t bellieve we have in things of the school. Herbs have been actually used to solve this covid 19 and it worked fine in many counties.

    Thank you this great article you have droppeed by.

  33. Garlic, ginger, and lemon have long been known as miracle natural ingredients for many cold and flu-type ailments. It is amazing that nature has provided so well for us, but sometimes we tend to forget about these natural healers when there are so many medications available out there.

    Aloe Vera is another well known one, that I always keep in the house as it has so many uses, but I had no idea that Rosemary would be so good as a remedy.
