I wanted to share a resource with you all that can help right now.
A friend and colleague of mine, pediatric neurologist Dr. Maya Shetreat has created a series of video lessons on using food, herbs and supplements to support immunity, lungs and stress levels. It is free of charge, and very well researched. She is also the author of The Dirt Cure, one of my favorite books on children’s health.
Here’s the link:

As for me, my part in this pandemic is outside. I’ve got 3 Mount Kisco-based garden projects that are continuing even if schools and child care centers are closed. Being outside, with hands in the soil and faces in the sun seems to be a good place to be. Here’s a good piece about that: https://medium.com/@ra.

And it is easy to “socially distance” outdoors in big community garden projects.
As our economy collapses from this pandemic, we will need to relocalize and decentralize our food.
Your nearby food pantry will appreciate freshly grown food in the months ahead.
If you have a sunny spot where you live, consider growing some food. Its easier than you think!
