| The corona virus scare is spreading across the world. Dozens of countries are affected. Governments take more drastic measures every day. What can you do? When doctors, medicines, and governments can’t help, your immune system can and will. Even during history’s worst epidemics—cholera, bubonic plague, smallpox, and influenza—mostly it’s been people with weakened immune systems who’ve succumbed to the disease. Here is what you can do to give your immune system a serious boost… 1. Breathe…for Real!|
Since the Coronavirus affects your respiratory system, I can’t emphasize strongly enough how important it is that you start doing breathing exercises twice a day.
Examples include, the Wim Hoff method. I am sure you’ve heard about the Ice Man. Follow his method if you wish:
Here is the method l use: Sit comfortably. Take 30 deep breaths, inhaling through your nose, exhaling through your mouth. Then, take a deep breath and exhale. Hold until you need to breathe in. Inhale again, as deep as you can, and hold it for 10 seconds. Practice this 3 times every morning and every evening. I follow this breathing method, but with one difference. I do 30 breaths in and out, but slowly—not nearly as fast as many videos on YouTube demonstrate.
Your lungs are not muscles. They can’t inhale or exhale on their own. They’re totally dependent on the diaphragm, a huge muscle that works like a bellows. The lungs’ task is to extract oxygen from a drawn breath and disperse it into the bloodstream. By performing breathing exercises once daily—better: twice—you are exercising your diaphragm. This in turn trains your lungs to be more efficient at receiving energy and distributing nutrition.
When you hold your breath as you exhale, it raises carbon dioxide levels in the body and brain. It also increases nitrogen levels. Oxygen gets delivered more efficiently to the body immediately after holding the breath.
The Corona virus goes into the body through the respiratory system. Keeping your respiratory system healthy should be your first line of defense. Keep your terrain healthy by eating nutrient dense foods, wholefood vitamin complexes and minerals. I will do another post later that will recommend, supplements to enhance your Immune System function. Call or e mail the clinic if additional information is needed. Stay safe & stay calm. Fear has a negative impact on our immune system.
