Help Prevent COVID-19

Like most people in our New York community, you’re probably taking actionable steps to prevent contracting the COVID-19 virus. Aside from following the necessary guidelines set forth from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is another way to help you live your life virus-free.

That’s right, the number one way to NOT get the deadly virus, or any virus, is to become a BAD host.

Of course there are no guarantees in life. However, today I’m going to share with you 3 things that’ll help you become a BAD host for any virus or bacteria, and far healthier than if you did nothing.

A virus needs a suitable host for it to do what viruses do. They’re totally dependent on their hosts and can’t reproduce without you.

Imagine going to a child’s birthday party and the host serving only fresh vegetables…

Chances are most people would call that host a “BAD host,” because let’s face it, a great host serves sweet cake and ice cream at a party, right?

But when it comes to viruses and serving yourself maximum health, becoming a BAD host is a GREAT strategy for doing so.

Here are three simple ways to become a bad virus and help prevent COVID-19:

1) Minimize your sugar intake.

Refined sugars can decrease the performance of white blood cells and increase inflammatory markers, so avoid it as much as possible. Especially if you desire to protect yourself and stay healthy.

This one step will help enhance your immune system function, making you a BAD host for viral or bacterial infections.

2) Call in back-up — daily.

Eating the right foods for supporting your immune system can definitely make you an award-winning BAD host. Not unlike a great back-up singer who makes you sound wonderful on stage, these vitamins/foods will help harmonize your body’s health:

Vitamin C — oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, strawberries, bell peppers, spinach, kale, and broccoli.

Vitamin E — nuts, seeds and spinach.

Zinc — lean meat, poultry, seafood, milk, whole grain products, beans, seeds and nuts.

Vitamin A — sweet potatoes, carrots, broccoli, spinach, red bell peppers, apricots, and eggs.

Vitamin D — fatty fish like tuna, mackerel, and salmon, beef liver, cheese, egg yolks, and getting out in the sunshine.

Probiotics — believe it or not, your gastrointestinal tract contains approximately 70 per cent of the cells that make up your immune system!

Vitamin B6 — chicken and cold water fish, such as salmon and tuna, green vegetables, and  chickpeas (hummus.)

And of course, supplementing with high-quality nutraceuticals is also highly beneficial.

Here are 3 supplements we recommend to help you “call in back up.”

3) Become a chiropractic ninja.

Chiropractic care optimizes your immune system’s function, and it will help you prevent getting COVID-19.

Studies have shown that when you get adjusted, it helps make you a less suitable host for viral infections.

One study particular study measured the CD4 count in patients who were HIV positive. The CD4 count measures how well your immune system is working. It showed that “a 48% increase in CD4 cells was demonstrated over the six month duration of the study for the adjusted group.”

This is one of the many reasons chiropractic care boosts immune system function, and optimizes your health.
