Five Ways to Prevent Coronavirus

Five Ways to Prevent Coronavirus

Chiropractic West Haven CT Wellness

...And any common cold or flu

One: Wash Your Hands!

Proper hygiene is essential in keeping any virus and bacteria at bay. Using soap and water is more effective than hand sanitizer. Something easy to remember and tell your kids: keep your hands below your shoulders!

Two: Exercise!

Exercising 30-60 minutes each day will boost your immune system and prevent your body from succumbing to increased stress. But don’t exercise too much: more than 90 minutes per day could make you more susceptible.

Three: Sleep Well!

Getting a good night's sleep is essential for the immune system to recharge. If your body is fatigued, you have a poor chance of fighting off infections. Shoot for 7-8 hours of pure sleep per night!

Four: Take Probiotics & Eat Healthy!

Probiotics are “good” bacteria that can help your body stay healthy and protect it from “bad” bacteria. Vitamins including A, B6, C, and E, and minerals including zinc, iron, copper, and selenium have been shown to improve immune system function. Your diet should consist of a rainbow of fruits and vegetables, with extra citrus especially if you do get sick. Try Elderberry syrup and Ocillococinum to naturally boost your immune system at the first signs of illness or before!

Five: Get Adjusted!

We all know that getting adjusted helps to improve symptoms from aches and pains but chiropractic care boosts your immune system each time you get adjusted! When you’re under the weather, there is no better time to come in for an adjustment. Studies have shown getting adjusted improves your immune system by 200-400% each time you come in!
