COVID-19, better known as coronavirus, is a threat to our way of life. We need to stay calm, and we need to stay healthy. We need to keep ourselves safe. We need to keep our loved ones healthy and safe, which at times, may require being away from them.

Our parents have required care from afar. Two of our adult children are in Los Angeles, which elevates our sense of powerlessness. So believe us when we say — we’re in this together. The stress for you, for us, for the world, is beyond words.

Sit back, breathe, and know that you have options. The human body is amazing when we give it what it needs. But you’re going to have to calm your mind and change your mindset. You’re going to have to get good food into your body and good thoughts into your head.

Your immune system is your mind. Your immune system is your body.

“True strength is keeping everything together when everyone expects you to fall apart.”

We believe in you, and we believe in the brilliance of your body. The key is to get your mind and your Immune system into a peak state. That’s what will empower you to fight the challenges ahead, along with the stress you’re facing from the pandemic.
