COVID-19: Can Genetic Studies of Previous Coronaviruses Help Us Fight COVID-19?

March 23, 2020 By kristen

We have experienced severe coronavirus infections before: SARS and MERS were both caused by coronaviruses. Luckily, we experienced these outbreaks during a time when genetics is a flourishing scientific industry. We use genetics for everything from cancer treatments and research to determining paternity. We also use genetics to study the spread of diseases. Fairly extensive studies were made on both SARS and MERS, both on the viruses themselves and on some of the patients who suffered through those illnesses. Genetics allows us to see just how much genetic material is shared between those outbreak viruses and SARS-CoVID-2, the virus that causes the illness known as COVID-19. It also allows us to do large scale determinations, including seeing how patients are similar and different in relation to how severe they experience the illness. To simplify: it allows researchers to find genes that make us more resilient or susceptible to severe coronavirus illnesses. Continue reading to learn more about this revelation!

DIY Adaptiv Bath Bar & Soap

March 20, 2020 By kristen

I got myself some Adaptiv Calming Blend a few weeks ago. I LOVE the scent! The scent is bright yet calming and a delight to use! I love it! Something else I love is soap-making and using artisan soaps. The only thing that’s been lacking is the glorious Adaptiv Calming Blend in a soap. doTERRA has a few other awesome scented soaps, like Citrus Bliss Soap and Serenity Bath Bar. But, alas, no Adaptiv. I decided to tackle the problem on my own, and my son wanted to help!

We’ve all heard about it. The novel coronavirus that triggers the sickness now being called CoVID-19. It all started in Wuhan, China and now it’s spread through more than half of the countries around the globe.
