April 2020 | Boost Your Immune System to Fight Viruses

Resolution to Lifestyle

No Matter The Day - It Will Be Music2YourFeet!
-Denise Bryant, Founder

***

We already know when it comes to the coronavirus - handwashing and avoiding those who may be sick are key precautions. However, you want to also seek ways to boost your immune system as a way to fend off viruses and help you stay healthy.

Here are five steps you can do now!

1. Stay Active
Exercise causes your body's antibodies and white blood cells to circulate more rapidly, which means they may be able to detect and zero in on bugs more quickly. Being active is away to lower stress hormones, which reduces your chances of getting sick. Studies show those who exercised at least five days a week have almost half the risk of coming down with a cold and if they did get one, they reported less severe symptoms. Also, research has shown that simply raising your body temperature may help kill germs in their tracks. I recommend exercise at least 30 to 60 minutes 3-5 days of the week. You do not need to go to the gym to exercise, you may walk outdoors and/or visit Music2YourFeet __website video page where you can continue to line dance for your health.

2. Watch your diet
Dr. Lin says” 80 percent of your immune system is in the gut.” Therefore a healthy gut will likely allow you to fight off infections faster and better. Consider a diet full of rich fruits, veggies, whole grains and healthy fats. Eat foods high in nutrients such as vitamin C, zinc, and other antioxidants which help reduce inflammation and fight infection. Studies show that adults between the ages of 65-79 who follow this type of diet and take a daily 400IU vitamin D supplement show an increase in disease fighting cells. Be sure to limit meat and fried foods.

3. Stay on top of stress
Dr. Moyad says there is a strong link between your immune system and mental health. People who are stressed are less likely to pay attention to healthy habits, like eating right and getting enough sleep, which can affect your immune system. Although you can't avoid stress, you can implement a better way to manage stress such as daily exercise and mediation.

4. Get enough sleep
Sleep is a natural immune booster. Studies show that people who get at least seven hours of sleep are less likely to come down with a cold than those that get less sleep.

5. Be strategic about supplements
The best way to find out if you are in need of supplemental vitamins is to get your blood levels tested. And once you find out you are lacking in a certain area, use food as your medicine. Cooking with herbs such as garlic, ginger, rosemary, oregano and turmeric have shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and protect against colds and may boost your immune system as well.

Here's to your Health in 2020!
