You need to get 35 grams of fibre per day, so choose plant foods like grapes, bell peppers, beans, whole grains and nuts. High fibre foods keep you out of constipation and heart healthy, too
You may have extra gas in your tummy and cause heartburn- annoying symptom before you start the day. Eat enough to plan a diet to keep your weight within the normal range to help to minimise these symptoms.
Home remedy for heartburn is to drink some cold milk straight from the fridge and munching some cucumber slices kept in the fridge may suffice.
Eat small meals and more often to avoid indigestion. Eat sufficient not to feel full, and enjoy the day comfortably and you’ll relate to people better.
Hydrate yourself by drinking water, juices, tea and other beverages with little added sugar. Sometimes you feel down when you are dehydrated and you may not suspect the cause. Hydrating yourself you revive like watering a dehydrated plant.

Discussion on treatment of severe cases of COVID-19 with Convalescent Plasma antibodies-by Harold Gunatillake

Dr. Harold Gunethilake

Antibody cocktails

“Antibody cocktails, and antiviral drugs show promising results until the vaccine is ready early next year”.

Transcript:
Let me explain briefly what your Immune system means-
One will have a built in-born-immune system called Innate system, and an adaptive immunity called passive system.
You are born with your innate active immune system to prevent your body from foreign threats, like threats from bacteria, viruses, and other protein containing living or non-living microscopic bodies.
Such immune protection is found in your skin oils, stomach acids, enzymes found in tears, mucus and cough reflexes, and sneezing. In addition, there are chemicals called interferon and interleukin 1.
In adaptive or acquired immune system, the threat must be recognized by your body and create antibodies or call them soldiers specifically to attack that threatening foreign body, mainly composed of protein material.
The body when it produces those antibody soldiers, they will remain in your body for life, and fight future responses to the same germ more efficiently.
