The news that there are now cases of the Coronavirus in the UK really hits home how real this new Coronavirus is.
It could be easy to have an opinion about being for or against vaccines, but in this case it really doesn’t matter, because at the time of writing there is no vaccine for the Coronavirus. Your only option is to rely on your immune system, and while it has the power to do amazing things, the big question is – how strong is yours?
As you know, I’m all about taking a natural approach – following a healthy balanced diet and lifestyle to support optimal immune health. So here are my thoughts on giving your incredible immune system the vital support it needs to be amazing.
1. Deal with Stress
Stress is a massive threat to your immune system as it affects your body’s ability to recover. Your adrenals (situated above your kidneys) are your frontline of defence and recovery in the face of stress or athletic training.
Most people who are depressed have exhausted their adrenals. Your drive, energy and get-up-and-go can disappear as a result of the strains of ‘normal’ modern living, so look to find an effective way to clear your mind and de-stress – whether that be yoga, mediation, walking or taking up a hobby and simply doing something you love to do.
2. Get plenty of (quality) sleep
Being sleep deprived hits your immune system hard. And if you think you’re not sleep deprived, you may need to think again. According to the Sleep Council nearly half of us get less than 6 hours a night, while just 8% of us awaken feeling refreshed (which should be the norm, not the exception).
Head over to my sleep blog – Are you sleeping soundly? For insight into what you can do to get a proper nights sleep.
3. Supercharge your exercise routine
Study after study shows that even the lightest of exercise routines can bolster your protection against illness. So factor in a brief, brisk walk each day where possible. Get out and enjoy the fresh air, remembering to breathe deeply to de-stress as you go.
4. Get your nutritional intake right
Real, whole foods – that’s what your body needs – vegetables, sprouts, low GI fruits, nuts, seeds and whole grains. Along with some grassfed meat and wild caught fish (if you eat them). Squeeze in as many plants, of different varieties (particularly green leafy veg), as you can each day.
Make this easy on yourself by whipping up a super green smoothie from raw cucumber, spinach, celery, kale, bok choi and avocado, and add a sprinkle of Supergreen powder plus a tablespoon of casein protein powder. As for my top tip, well that would be adding a small piece of raw ginger and some chia seeds before blending – delicious!
5. Super Charge with Supplements
As far as I’m concerned, everyone needs supercharged food supplements specifically designed to support their immune system. Which is why I’ve created a special Super Immune Power Pack to do just that. These are the supplements I, and those closest to me take daily, for good reason:
