Three of the knowledge's that best support us through this and why:
Mshkikiiwaabo (Medicine Tea) We will talk about Cedar, Labrador and Chaga
Pkwenezagan (Smoke medicine)
Chewing different medicines like spruce gum or Wiikeh (sweet flag, ratroot, calamus)
Giizhigaa'aandakaabo, Cedar tea (eastern white cedar, Thuja occidentalis).
The most powerful of the three being good ol cedar tea. This is going to stimulate our lymphatic system which is absolutely crucial! Your lymphatic system is what is responsible for transporting important parts of your immune system. When your lymphatic system is stimulated, it is faster, more efficient and juss. rull. deadleh. lol
Someone drinking cedar tea will have, on average, 7X more lymphocytes, that's 7X more soldiers! Consequentially they will have much more antibodies, some studies indicate 300% more, thats 300% more bullets!! This in combination with a stimulated super-fast lymphatic transportation system.. Oh man! This is like going from travelling in Ontario in a rusty '04 subaru to 7 of you all having your own fighter jet! lol.. Our little soldiers are going to be able to travel around and cover so much more area, deliver so much more antibodies and severely increase our chances of and speed at which we dominate the virus.
Mshkiigobagawaabo, Labrador tea (and chaga)

Mild physical exercise is so important, simply walking and making sure we are moving consistently throughout the day has been keeping us sane, but also really lowering insulin levels keeping our immune system working in tip top shape. FYI our lymphatic system moves when we move, if we do not move our lymphatic system doesn't move. Stay away from intense physical exercise though. Upon infection you are going to want to be partitioning energy and nutrients to your immune system and not tissue repair.. make sense?
So basically just understand your recovery is going to be different if you are eating for health, moving throughout the day, drinking medicine teas. Dont lay around watchin news and netflix all day and slowly eating through a ton of processed apocalypse food.
Smoke medicine and chewing medicines!
Our smoke medicines and chewing medicines are super important as well. They are like CBSA.. barely let anyone through.. lol if there is less enemy in our bodies it is going to be a much easier battle. It is kind of funny how these work as well.. the main mechanism of smoke medicine and chewing medicines like wiikeh and spruce gum is they simply keep your nose, sinuses, throat, mouth and lungs wet! lol.. that is all. Viruses and bacteria have a hard time sticking to (infecting) something when they are wet.. so humidify those houses and mucus membranes.
For chewing spruce gum, you gotta know whats up, you can't just go out and slap a big wad in and hope everything will be okay. Chewing bigiiw, spruce gum, spruce resin, is an art. Just like any other art it takes a massive amount of practice. If I could just quickly give a few general rules to follow that will help you get started at least on the right foot I would just say this: only, ONLY chew spruce gum that is crystallized, not soft. When you start chewing the crystallized your first few bites will be bitter spruce dust. Dont panic, or you will be in a world of pain and anger. Listen, if you spit it out now your mouth will be FULL of sticky nastiness that brushing wont take off. Don't spit the dust out. If you have come this far into the world of resin chewing understand that enzymes in your saliva will change certain components and that dust will start connecting back together. Use the spruce gum to grab all the little bits of spruce gum, this is the only way, again, brushing wont help, only trying again will help. After 30 seconds of chewing dust you should, I repeat SHOULD have something that resembles gum that is so satisfyingly hard to chew. Because this virus most effective transmission is via air, this is an amazing strategy to mitigate the potential for the virus to adhere, chewing this stuff you salivate a LOT!
