Given the alarming headlines and news reports about coronavirus, many people are naturally concerned. One of the best things you can do is keep your immune system robust. Drug-free chiropractic care plays a vital role in boosting the immune system, our body’s natural defense system. According to some studies, within 30 minutes of getting adjusted, there’s a significant increase in interleukin—proteins that help keep the immune system strong—and white blood cells.
Manage Your Stress
It’s no surprise that stress has a powerful, negative effect on your health and well-being. That’s why keeping stress levels in check is critical in supporting your immune system. Stress will compromise your immune system and tax your body, creating dis-ease and dys-function.
Decrease Inflammation & Increase Immunity
In addition to chiropractic care, Cryo can decrease stress-related inflammation and boost your immune system. The infrared sauna has research to document its effectiveness in fighting disease and it is seven times more detoxifying than a regular sauna and works systemically. It is one of the most effective therapies available to keep your detox pathways clear.
Five Healthy, Immune-Boosting Habits
In addition to washing your hands for 20 seconds after being out in public and social distancing, here are five things you can do to fortify your immune system:
- Eat a rainbow of fruits and veggies
- Exercise daily
- Get good restorative sleep
- Stay positive
- Get adjusted regularly
It’s Going to Be Okay
Though the coronavirus pandemic is causing fear and concern worldwide, it’s important to provide some perspective. The majority of people who get the virus will be okay. Look at Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson. After being hospitalized, they self-isolated and now they’re feeling fine.
