WHAT YOU CAN DO
We've had a lot of questions about COVID-19 and have been asked to share our thoughts. The general idea is to stay healthy, strengthen your immune system and practice good hygiene and health habits.
Here are our recommendations:
✔️ Eat nutritious food and, yes, cut the sugar!
Sugar suppresses your immune response.
✔️ Get enough sleep (7-8 hours a night).
Lack of sleep suppresses your immune response.
✔️ Reduce your stress.
Stress and worry produce higher levels of cortisol, which suppresses the immune response.
✔️ Get outside.
Your grandmother was right -- fresh air and sunshine is good for the body and soul.
Exercise combats stress, elevates mood and boosts your immune response. Are you seeing a pattern here?
✔️ Get adjusted.
A chiropractic adjustment can help you feel better which can help reduce stress, promote healing and even -- yes, you guessed it -- boost your body's own immune response.
✔️ Take your whole food supplements.
A vitamin D3 supplement (especially containing K2, such as Bio-DK-Mulsion by Biotics Research Corporation) is recommended every day but most especially in the winter or when you are immune compromised.
Do you have a sore throat? Consider Vitamin C + Zinc lozenges.
Do you have signs of acute infection? Consider Andrographis Complex.
Do you have body aches and generalized pain? Talk to us about Turmeric Forte with Fenugreek.
As for hygiene:
Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. It is longer than you think. We suggest that you count, especially after sneezing, coughing and using the restroom.
Avoid touching your face.
If you cough, do so into a tissue or the bend of your elbow.
Clean work stations and places where other people frequently touch, such as door handles and computers.
Avoid contact with sick people.
Stay home if you are sick.
