What is in our Covid Preparedness kit
People have been asking what we have in our Covid preparedness kit, so we thought that it might be useful to share what we have in our personal kit at home.
Digital thermometer – To watch for fever (38 C and above)
Pulse Oximeter – This simple device keeps an eye on your pulse rate, and also your oxygen saturation rate. If this figure drops below 94%, then a call to your healthcare provider is wise; 92% or below needs a visit to a Medical Centre/Hospital. We bought ours at a Pharmacy.
Betadine sore throat gargle (three times a day, do not swallow), and Mary Gray Manuka throat lozenges.
Netti pot for Nasal irrigation – Because Omicron is more of an upper respiratory tract infection, nasal irrigation can help to dislodge virus particles by washing them out.
Vitamins and minerals: Zinc, Vitamin D+K2, Lipospheric Vitamin C, Quercitin.
Natural Anti-inflammatory: N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC).
Immune support: Colostrum and Lactoferrin
Paracetamol/Ibuprofen for headache relief.
Fish Oil or Aspirin as an anticoagulent.
This is just what we have in our personal Covid kit, and we hope that you found it interesting. As always, check with your healthcare provider before taking any medicines or supplements.
