What Can I Do to Protect Myself from COVID-19

It’s understandable that the measures we took initially to protect ourselves from Coronavirus might be a little different from what we’re doing now — now that we’re two months into this pandemic business.

Below, Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center goes over a few ways that you can fortify yourself and stay in good health during these odd and tragic times.

First, protect your immune system! Try to eat oranges, red bell peppers, drink a little elderberry juice. Take some immune booster shots (many are made with cayenne pepper or black pepper, elderberry, and other ingredients that give your immune system an added boost).

You can also limit the amount of sugar you consume — which medical professionals are linking to cases where COVID-19 is having particularly damaging effects. Inflammation puts your body at risk and damages your body’s ability to fight off infection.

Exercise and get outdoors as much as you can. Vitamin D deficiencies are running rampant and a lack of Vitamin D has been shown to set people up for tragic consequences when battling this crazy virus.

Stay away from public spaces as much as you can, but maybe now it’s time to meet with people under safe circumstances. Isolation has negative effects on your health. It’s perfectly acceptable to meet up with another healthy person if you’ve not been impacted by COVID-19.

Remember that we are all walking bacteria farms and that our immune systems work best when we are trading germs and exchanging biological information that will help us ward off disease. If we become too isolated and sterilized, our bodies won’t be able to hack it out there in the real world, once the real world gets back to up and running again. We hope it does soon here at Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center. We’re here to provide our essential treatments during this time. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
