Things You NEED In Your House to Fight Against COVID and Other SARS Viruses
March 3, 2021
We know we need a vaccine that works – in addition to the other 3 big “must-dos”:
- washing hands and other items frequently,
- wearing a mask properly, and
- staying at least 6 feet apart from other people not living in your house.
Is there more we can do?
Can Some Vitamins Help Prevent COVID?
They are still doing research.
The CDC is recommending vitamins and minerals, but try to get them from your food/diet first if you can.
The NIH still notes that evidence for Vitamin D use is not conclusive.
We recently found a video from Dr Christy Risinger that goes over some studies about what vitamins may and may not work to prevent viral illnesses such as the cold. The doctor evaluating the studies used the information to extrapolate out to also include COVID, since the SARS viruses are ones that can cause the common cold.

Take a listen. I’m a skeptic, too, yet her findings and evaluation are convincing:
There is currently a clinical trial in recruitment that people can sign up for. This one is studying preventing COVID through the use of Vitamins C, D, and Zinc, plus Hydroxychloroquine.
The Cleveland Clinic has done a preliminary look at patients in their Covid registry. Taking a look to see if Melatonin use will cure COVID. They are not only looking at Melatonin (an herb) but quite a few drugs, as well. They are looking at substances that target the symptoms of COVID to see if it could do double-duty to treat COVID. Their results so far have shown that a use of Melatonin is associated with a decrease in the likelihood of positive COVID tests, especially among African-Americans.
It’s too soon to tell yet, however, if Melatonin and others can cure COVID. They are still studying it.
Signs are promising. We caution you to not use Melatonin without checking with your primary care provider first, though, to make sure it’s right for you.
Home Air Filter
Dr Fauci recommends a HEPA filter for your home.
You can spend over a grand getting one installed in with your A/C unit which filters the air ONLY when the unit is running, or you can buy standalone room units.
When it comes to in-home air filtration systems without adding it to your A/C unit, Alen is the top of the pile.
They have big units to cover part of your house, or smaller units to cover a room. Many with UV and Ion options built in.

We have 2 in our house and LOVE them.
When you turn it on or if something dirty (think dog or an open door) happens nearby, the sensor is red as it picks up dust and other particles in the air and starts cleaning the air room. It also is louder, as it’s working harder. As it cleans, the light goes to yellow, then blue, and the machine noise gets softer, as it’s not working as hard anymore.
It has an ion button you can use, also. Good for these viral times.
An asthmatic friend came over and told me that I’m the only friend she has that she doesn’t have breathing issues while in our house.Save up to 30% on Alen Filters
In addition, since the wildfires stop for no pandemic – if you live near wildfires and are trying to recover from smoke from that, they have a machine just for that, as well:Alen.com – Shop The Best Air Purifiers for Wildfire Smoke!
Researchers still don’t know why some people seem more susceptible to SARS or COVID, or why some people get a milder case than others.
As of the writing of this article, items shown here show some promise to help people stay healthier and potentially boost the immune system.
