How to prevent the Coronavirus? From inside out
We are living a very delicate time! The coronavirus is shaking everybody’s deepest beliefs of health, safety, and security.
It’s definitely difficult to stay positively focused on yourself when the world around you is threatened by a pandemic. Airports, schools, and shops are closing and we are asked to stay at least 1 mt away from each other.
A lot has been said about how to prevent spreading the virus. Measures like washing hands, covering your face, avoiding public places, avoiding touching eyes and nose, etc. All those are important and we should take them into consideration to avoid spreading the coronavirus any further.
However, what can we do in terms of our internal bodies? How can we stay strong enough to not be infected?
All comes down to a strong immune system!
So, to strengthen your immune system follow these easy tips to make sure you are in the top shape of your health and stay strong against the coronavirus.
Reduce Stress Levels:
Stress is the number one debilitating factor in our immune system.
Attempt to stay calm during this time. Take enough rest, listen to calm music, stay in touch with nature, use your favorite ways to relax and try to distract your mind about the topic.
Even if we all need to know what is going on with the coronavirus, try to see the news only once a day. This will give you the update that you need and then you can move on your day and try to forget about it.
Remember, fear and anxiety don’t help with your stress level! And continuously seeing the news will make the problem only bigger in your head.
Moderate alcohol intake:
Excess alcohol can hinder your immune system operation. When drinking too much alcohol it focuses your body on eliminating the toxins out, instead of building a strong immune system.
So, do not use alcohol to forget what is going on! And the same applies to smoking and recreational drugs, of course.
Get plenty of Micronutrients in:
The best way to support your immune system is to get your nutrition right! Especially your micronutrients, which are Vitamins and Minerals.
The best way to get them in is with a diet rich in vegetables and fruits. However, if this is challenging for you, try a multivitamin supplement.
The main Vitamin that boosts your immune system is Vitamin C. You can get Vitamin C from citric fruits like oranges, lemons, grapefruits, berries or from a good Vitamin C supplement like this one.
Also, include enough cruciferous vegetables in your diet, like broccoli, cauliflower, kale and cabbage which have not only plenty of vitamins and minerals but also great detoxifying properties.
Keep on moving:
Exercise helps to boost your immune system. However, do not overdo it because it can cause the opposite effect. Find the right intensity for you and move your body regularly.
Get enough sleep:
When we sleep our body rebuilds itself up. Our immune system gets to “fight” the bad guys and balance is restored in the body.
To allow this to happen, we need to get enough sleep. Between 7 to 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Darken your room as much as possible and take 1 hr before going to sleep away from blue light from phones, computers, and TV.
Drink hot ginger, lemon, and honey tea:
Drinking hot drinks will help to kill the coronavirus if it has entered your throat. It is said that it can’t tolerate heat. Also, ginger, lemon, and honey are immune system boosters.
Ginger is anti-inflammatory. Lemon is full of Vitamin C, and Honey is a natural antibacterial.
Do warm salt water gargles:
Based on the previous logic, warm salt water gargles will help to keep your mouth and throat clear from infections going in.
In a small glass of warm water add 1 teaspoon of good quality salt and then do few times gargles for 5 to 10 seconds each, spitting out the water afterward.
The main point of this article is to stay as healthy and balanced as you can. Take this time to reflect on your healthy habits and try to make small improvements to get extra strong.
By building up your immune system and doing the preventive actions to avoid spreading the virus is the only way we can do our part in this matter.
This is how we can avoid the coronavirus to move forward. Hopefully, working all together to improve this challenge will strengthen, united and make us better people for the future to come.
Wishing you a healthy and peaceful time ahead.
