Over two years of disruptions to our lives are finally coming to an end. Most people are vaccinated or have acquired natural immunity by catching the virus. Herd immunity has been reached and we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief. Restrictions are gradually being dropped, masks are disappearing and life can start to return to normal. Many lessons have been learned and studies are continuing to be released.
One of the main lessons is that people, that take good care of themselves and their health, were much less at risk than people that are overweight and suffer from chronic diseases, like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure etc.
It is important that we remember and learn from these lessons and continue to take responsibility for our personal health, since new viruses will always develop in the future. The healthier your body is and the more resilient your immune system, the better you can survive any future diseases.
Eating healthy: lots of vegetables, fruit, berries, and lean protein is a good foundation. Taking nutritional supplements to promote good immune function and general health is more important than ever.
Regular exercise at least 3 times a week, should be part of everyone’s schedule, especially since sitting in front of the computer is often unavoidable in our daily lives. As spring gets here, go out for walks and breathe fresh air!
Water is an important component of a health regimen. About 3 quarts a day is a good guideline. Remember that your body’s composition is 70% water!
And last, but not least, regular chiropractic checkups and adjustments ensure that your brain which controls everything in your body, can communicate freely with all your organs, glands, and tissues, through your spinal cord without interference. Subluxations (misalignments) in your spine disrupts this important communication pathway and leads to less optimal functions. Removing subluxations restores optimal function.
A well-adjusted body is a healthy, happy body!
