Our world continues to get shocked with pandemic diseases causing the loss of thousands and even millions of people. It’s possible for your body to be affected by these diseases and infections. The most recent COVID – 19 has caused our world to take generous precautions to avoid and defeat the rampant virus. The virus is also known as SARS-CoV-2 originated in Wuhan China and has made viral impressions globally over the past few weeks. Some cases are reported as much more severe than others. A major risk of the virus is that some carriers show no symptoms yet it’s as contagious as those that do. Those that aren’t showing any symptoms are more likely to contribute to the person to person spread. Those with severe medical conditions are at a greater risk of picking up a serious case of COVID -19 than those without, yet people of all ages have picked up the virus. We will continue to see the virus spread over the coming months. For more information and updates on the virus please reference the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Website (link below).
This is a reality that we must all face and prepare for. Having a body that is strong and healthy enough to fight off any serious illnesses is something that comes from consistently making healthy choices. What you intake and do not intake will structure your cells accordingly. The flow of your lifestyle will also be a large influence on the makeup of your body’s DNA and molecular structure.
Eat for Infection Prevention and Immunity Strength
Choose foods and supplements that are rich in vitamins and minerals. Raw fruits and vegetables, leafy greens, and grass-fed/ pasture-raised/ wild-caught meat. Garlic, Elderberry, and Oregano Oil are healthy bacteria-fighting aids. Making healthier intake choices will eliminate harmful pathogens and fight infections.
Regulate Gut Health
Healthy probiotics like Kimchi can stimulate the neuro-receptors within your gut. Colostrum is a great recommendation for cultivating immunity through supplements. This will increase your mental clarity and the well-being of your body and digestive system. Incorporating probiotics into your lifestyle will also prevent Leaky Gut Syndrome and Diarrhea from infectious causes.
Exercise to Increase Vitality
Physical activity promotes healthy blood and natural killer cell production. Natural Killer Cells are white blood cells that reject tumors and viral diseases. Choosing to exercise builds blood cells instead of fat cells and leads to anti-aging benefits. Exercise regulates a proactive body on the molecular level increasing healing abilities and disease prevention.
Get Proper Sleep
Healthy sleeping patterns, as well as all the other topics we have discussed so far, will reduce your risk of getting heart disease, diabetes, and immunity dysfunction.
Heat & Hydrate
Drinking fluids will wash the virus into the stomach where it will die in the stomach acid. If you do not drink enough fluids it can move from the windpipe into the lungs. The virus cannot survive in temperatures greater than 530 degrees Celsius. That is about 133 degrees Fahrenheit. The higher the temperature the faster the virus will die. Fit a regular sauna visit into your routine and make sure you always keep a vessel full of fluids with you.
All together healthy eating, sleeping, heating, hydrating, and exercising will be your biggest weapon when preventing and defeating viruses like the COVID – 19. Take some time to learn about and appreciate the resources and design that nature provides for us to stay healthy and happy. We are all capable of monitoring our choices and our bodies. Feel better, look better, be better, and most importantly; live better.
