This study aims to determine the prevention of COVID-19 by strengthening the body’s immune system through self- healing. This study uses qualitative methods with analytical descriptive methods. The research subjects were three People in Monitoring (ODP) COVID-19. Based on extensive interviews and observations at the research site as the main tool for data collection, this study produced several findings.

Medically, the causes of the body’s immune system are weak: lack of exercise, consuming less nutritious food, dehydration, and lack of sleep. Psychological factors, the cause of the body’s immune system is weak due to stress, anger, fear, tension, and emotional. Second, preventing COVID-19 by strengthening the body’s immune system through self-healing, namely self-healing mentally and self-healing physically.
