Boost Immunity to Prepare for the Inevitable
The world is in relative lock down and feelings of helplessness abound. However, we can do much more than seclusion to prepare for what is inevitable.
To this point, much of the country’s focus has been on social distancing and preventing spread. Understand that I have no problem with that. Yet, I do believe it important to discuss things that boost immunity aside from eating toilet paper and hand sanitizer.
In an article from aarp.org, Hallie Levine discusses 5 different science-backed areas that can help boost immunity (Boost Your Immune System to Fight Viruses). They are as follows:
- Stay Active
- Eat Well
- Manage Stress
Fortunately, Health & Performance Center discusses nearly all of these with every patient. In fact, we have for the last decade. So, we have been consistently preparing patients for this pandemic.
Maybe a little hyperbolic, but the fact remains that we create joint balance and muscle symmetry to improve posture and movement. To do this, we focus on a mind body connection forged through diaphramatic breathing. Add consultation regarding sleep strategies and nutrition and we hit every area.
Simply, we get people back to moving like they were designed so they can stay active. This is achieved through something very similar to yoga, self-evaluation, and mediation.
Enjoy the breakdown and as always, #keepmoving
