As we reach the half-way point through May and many states are continuing to enforce quarantine conditions, it's important to start taking our own health back. Government orders and suggestions have zero to do with how to build a healthy immune system or what you can do to set your body up for success in the event that you are exposed to COVID-19. All we're hearing about is shelter in place, stay home, wear masks, use hand sanitizer, and stock up on toilet paper. It's pretty bewildering, honestly.
As a result, Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center would like to go over a few measures you can take to start rebuilding your immune system so that when society (and our government) decides it's time to stop forcing people out of work and to stay at home, you're not out in the cold when it comes to the natural defenses that help you ward off a viral infection.
First, get outside more often. You don't need to wear a mask outside, especially if you're in an area that is densely populated. You really only need to wear a mask if you're sick and have to go out for some odd reason, or if you're inside a public building. Getting outside and getting fresh air is pivotal to your immune system. Vitamin D is your friend and we get some of that from the sun.
Interacting with people now is likely a safe idea. Make sure you don't come into contact with those who are susceptible to COVID-19 or have been exposed to COVID-19 in any way. Meeting with a younger friend who is in good health and hasn't exhibited any of the symptoms of Coronavirus and going for an outdoor walk or hike is probably a good idea. It's probably okay to give some safe hugs to a safe person -- especially those of us who live on our own and have had zero human contact for two months straight.
Remember that isolation is hazardous to our health. As local governments start to overstep their boundaries, it's important to focus on taking our own health back. Contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center to learn about how our treatments can help give your immune system an added boost during this time.
