As Mandatory Vaccines by Employers become the norm, Pharmacist Benjamin Knight Fuchs, R.Ph. looks behind the hype.
LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The rapidly spreading Delta variant is forcing employers to rethink their strategies for handling the pandemic. Policies they should reconsider include encouraging or requiring employees to be vaccinated. Having remote workers return to company facilities is a multipart discussion. We must understand that social distancing and wearing masks at job sites may be around for a long time. Better ventilation, employee self checks, job site testing, and health checks are going to become part of this new world.
We have to face a couple of simple facts. For whatever reason people still don’t wash their hands properly. Recent monitoring of airport restrooms indicates only a slight improvement over past practice. Medical experts worry that symptomatic people will use over the counter medications. Taking these medications, instead of staying home and taking care of themselves, hides the fact that they are highly contagious. Unfortunately using over the counter medications can mask detectable symptoms. With symptoms hidden, highly contagious people are acting irresponsibly. They continue with a “normal” day and spread viruses instead of staying home as they should.
A Pharmacist Suggests
Acclaimed Nutritional Pharmacist, Benjamin Knight Fuchs, R.Ph., believes there are other alternatives to minimize COVID 19 infection. “While vaccinations are a controversial subject fraught with political as well as cultural implications, what remains non-controversial are the nutritional and lifestyle strategies that we should all be employing to not only prevent infection and symptoms but also to reduce the likelihood of post-jab side effects,” states Fuchs.
The spread of the highly contagious Delta variant of Covid-19 is causing infections and hospitalizations to rise again. This is true even in the East Bay communities with high vaccination rates. Hopes that the pandemic would soon fade away have been dimmed by the spread of the Delta variant. This new version appears to evade at least some of the immunity conferred by past infection or vaccination. Several hospitals report as much as 5% of new cases are vaccinated individuals. There is a common thread though.
“For one thing, reducing intake of ultra-processed foods, sugar and fried fats is a must,” continues Fuchs. “Enjoying lots of colored veggies can help, likewise lowering caloric intake and even occasional fasting are powerful ways support detoxification.”
The Reality of Vaccination
With low global vaccination rates, there are likely to be new variants and they may be even more threatening. Consequently, we can expect sporadic cases and periodic outbreaks of Covid-19 in the months and years ahead. The good news is that as the virus has evolved, employers have honed their strategies to keep infections in check. By continuing to be creative, flexible, and adaptive in their approaches, employers can contain the threat. These strategies will help the recovery now and handle other outbreaks in the future as they arise.
“Don’t forget to get out in the sun and enjoy movement and exercise. Even just a daily walk to enhance lymphatic drainage of toxicity can be beneficial. Slow, deep, rhythmic breathing can improve circulation and elimination of toxins as well. Nutritional supplementation with N-acetyl cysteine, selenium, zinc and Vitamins A and C, among many others are an immune boosting must,” concludes Fuchs.
