Pastor Doug, Neil Nedley Highlight Coronavirus Prevention

Amid global confusion over combating COVID-19—which the World Health Organization declared a global pandemic on March 11—Amazing Facts International has just released an informative, hope-filled video detailing ways you can boost your immunity and take sensible precautions against the novel coronavirus.

The 14-minute video, “The Best Coronavirus Prevention,” features Pastor Doug Batchelor, president of Amazing Facts, and Dr. Neil Nedley, president of Weimar Institute, both located in Northern California.

As shared in the video, Pastor Doug says, “God doesn’t want us to live in fear; He wants us to live in faith.” He also says that confidence in the face of crisis can be had by “following the principles God gave us for natural healing and health.”

The new video offers a concise explanation of the coronavirus, why it is so transmissible among people, and the origins of this illness. While those with strong immune systems and those under 50 are less likely to succumb to the disease’s more severe effects—Dr. Nedley says that 80 percent of those infected with COVID-19 will experience either very mild or even no symptoms—precautions still need to be taken because the illness spreads more easily than the seasonal flu does.

The two discuss Weimar’s famous NEWSTART health program—an acronym for “eight health principles: proper nutrition, exercise, water, sunlight, temperance (avoiding things harmful to the immune system like alcohol and tobacco), fresh air, rest (proper rest) and trust in Divine power, which is also shown to be immune-enhancing.”

The video also offers viewers a free copy of Amazing Health Facts! 8 Bible Secrets for a Longer and Stronger Life magazine, which discusses Bible guidelines for more robust physical health. Get your copy today!
