The Elders of my community have stated:
This sickness has a spirit, just like Fear has a spirit, Do not feed it fear. Use your medicines, boil cedar, juniper (clean the air), make teas (trappers, chaga), don’t just make these medicines or burn them, talk to them, tell them what you need.
Smudge your homes, pray with good energy. Pray and ask that spirit of that sickness not to hurt our people, they said now is a time to pray, to create a powerful strong relationship with the water, the earth, the elements and the medicines.
Scientific Fact: stress and fear lower the immune system and makes you more susceptible to sickness.
