An Integrative Approach to Prevention
Surely there is more that we can do to prevent catching this virus beyond social distancing. Just like with other diseases, we stave off illness by being healthy. Your immune system has the ability to protect you if you just give it the tools it needs.
• Eat healthy, fresh, non-processed foods such as organic vegetables and fruits, lots of nuts and seeds, and well-raised meats. Vary your nutrients daily. Cut out the sugars and starches. Use avocado and olive oils rather than vegetable or corn oils. Do you need help with your diet? Contact our nutritionist / health coach Missy for a virtual appointment:
• Get plenty of rest. You need 6-8 hours per night.
• Work on lessening stress in your life. Take up yoga, meditation, mindful walks, or planting a garden. Download the Headspace or Calm apps and use them daily. Talk to people you love. Laugh. FaceTime. Have a group Zoom virtual party.
• Exercise. You need it. Do it.
• Hydration. Keep a bottle or glass of water by your side all day and keep drinking.
Remember – supplements are supplemental. Adding supplements to a terrible lifestyle is a sure way not to get healthy. Many supplements have been shown to be useful in fighting off viral illnesses and boosting immune function.
