As you are aware the Corona Virus is taking over our daily headlines across the nation and world. The sensational reports tend to focus on tragedies and the ultimate reality that sicknesses can be deadly. As a health professional, I would like provide you some additional realities and facts as well in hopes to alleviate some of your fear.
The coronavirus is a common virus that causes an infection in the nose, sinuses, or upper throat. Most corona viruses do not accompany the deadly outcomes catching media headlines. And as we all know, the body's enemies take on MANY forms - stress, seasonal changes, environmental contaminants. We can't make the immune system invincible to these pressures, but we can make it more prepared.
Now, to the important part: WHAT YOU CAN DO
1) Stay on track with adjustments to keep the autonomic nervous system in balance.
Research from 2010 determined that patients who received Chiropractic adjustments showed increased levels of a specific signaling molecule in the body called Interleukin-2. Interleukin-2 regulates the activities of white blood cells which are responsible for immunity.
2) Consume high quality, doctor trusted immune boosters.
Congaplex is used for short-term support of the immune system.*
Echinacea Premium combines the roots of Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea purpurea, herbs traditionally used to enhance healthy immune system function.*
Immuplex blends essential micronutrients and minerals as well as Protomorphogen™ and Cytosol™ extracts to support the immune system*
3) Add 30-60 minutes of extra sleep to the daily routine. Inadequate sleep depletes immunity.
4) Drink water and remove sugary drinks and snacks from the diet. Sugar drains immunity.
5) Move the body. Exercise increases lymphatic flow and provides significant immune benefits.
6) Wait for it….WASH YOUR HANDS! But seriously, for 20 seconds or more. Use hand sanitizer between washes. Avoid touching your mouth, eyes or nose with unclean hands.
