Dr. Sue Health Tip Make a Mask out of a Bra!

“Masks probably do provide some protection.” That’s the latest news from The New York Times

NYTimes on Masks and Coronavirus:

“Masks probably do provide some protection. They’re particularly effective at keeping somebody who already has the virus from spreading it to others, and they may also make the mask’s wearer less likely to get sick.

“Coronavirus appears to mostly spread when germ-containing droplets make it into a person’s mouth, nose, or eyes,” Vox’s German Lopez explains. “If you have a physical barrier in front of your mouth and nose, that’s simply less likely to happen.”

Of course we should give first priority for masks to health-care workers. And there may be no masks available.

What can you do?  You can Make Your Own Mask!

It may not be medical grade – but it is surely better than nothing! Tie a Scarf around your Nose and Mouth! (You’ll feel like a Movie Star – The Lone Ranger! ) Or Use a Bra Cup – any size will do! Fasten with hooks and eyes, snaps or elastic – get creative. Or cut up an old shirt or pants leg! (Use your imagination, your scarf, shirt, pants…or bra!)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now reviewing whether to encourage Americans to wear masks. That would be a reversal and come after weeks of discouraging mask use. Many journalists, including me, previously quoted the experts who urged ordinary people not to wear masks.

Dr. Sue Health Tips & Early Symptoms of COVID-19

Here are Health Tips to Prevent Infection!

Don’t touch your face!

COVID-19, like most coronaviruses and the flu, enter the body through the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose, and mouth – all of them on the face. I realized that one of the main reasons that I touch my face is to brush away my loose hair that falls on my face. So I fastened my hair with a scrunchy and tucked it under my cap. Wearing the cap also reminds me – don’t touch my face! I’m on my solo walk in the park. I’m keeping social distance – with fresh air, sunshine, flowers,… and a curious squirrel who ran up to my feet. But I walked away. Better rude than sorry 🙂 

Touching your face is an unconscious habit, and it’s easy to slip – so wash or sanitize your hands as soon as you get home – do it regularly.

Cover your nose and mouth.

Health Care Workers need medical-grade masks but a scarf or home-made mask offers some protection

Avoid touching paper and public surfaces – that includes cash, receipts, doorknobs, railings, etc.

Hydration, multivitamins and particularly zinc are helpful for body’s defense against all viruses. Use as directed. Excess of  any vitamins and minerals not recommended and could actually lower your immune response.

Do not take Ibuprofen or Advil – unless truly necessary.

According to some sources, these drugs make the virus much worse – with patients winding up on ventilators.

This warning about Ibuprofen and Advil is disputed, but we say, why take the risk? 

Be mindful of early symptoms of COVID-19, which include:

  • Feeling achy or exhausted
  • unusual sniffles
  • low grade temp or flushing
  • alteration of smell or taste.

If symptoms progress to frequent coughing or Shortness of Breath, seek medical care immediately.

Early diagnosis and treatment is essential to keep the morbidity and mortality low.

Dr. Sue Shares Positive Attitude – Nature & Poetry

Hello. This is Dr. Sue (Susan Horowitz, Ph.D,) I live in Manhattan, New York, the epicenter of our current pandemic. I say “current” because, this too shall pass – especially if we take care of our health – physical and mental.  

It’s March, 2020, early spring – one of my favorite times of year. I’ve been spending lots of time in my apartment. I wanted fresh air and a way to connect to the beauty of nature. Social distancing is important, so I decided to go for a solo walk in a local park – no mass transportation, and no crowds. After a short walk in the park, I came across these beautiful fields of daffodils. (Please scroll down for video).

These golden-trumpeted flowers reminded me of the ending lines from one of my favorite poems: “I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud” by William Wordsworth, written in the early 19th century. The last line of the poem is: “And then my heart with pleasure fills and dances with the daffodils.” Wordsworth writes about how, when he is feeling depressed,  (“in vacant or in pensive mood”),  he remembers the daffodils moving in the wind. The memory lifts his spirits and he feels pleasure as he imagines “his heart…dancing with the daffodils.”

Many of us are feeling isolated and lonely and bored as we self-isolate to protect our health, and the health of our loved ones and community. This is the wise and generous thing to do. It’s easy to become depressed as the public media and worried friends share frightening statistics and stories – – and interpretations that can lead to personal despair.

What can we do?

We can take care of our physical health, and by now, we know what to do (social distance, hygiene, etc.)

We can take care of our mental and spiritual health.

We can manage and limit our exposure to negativity.

We can focus on opportunities for growth and learning, on healthy routines, on hobbies, and on beauty.

We can enjoy the beauty of nature – either in reality (like my solo walk), in memory (like William Wordsworth’s poem), or virtually (in videos, photographs, and text).

I hope you enjoy this video of me and my daffodils!
