With so much in the news about the flu and the epidemic of Coronavirus a lot of our patients and customers are asking us what they can do to protect themselves. We thought we could offer some suggestions.
We recommend a two-pronged approach:
1) Avoid allowing pathogens to enter your body
2) Boost your immune system so if/when you are exposed you have the best chance to minimize the symptoms of infection
Boost your Immune System:
There are many things you can do to help your immune system do its job. Here are a few of our favorites. Do the things you know keep yourself healthy: Eat healthy (lots of fruits and veggies), get enough sleep, don’t smoke and exercise regularly. All of these keep your immune system healthy and ready for battle.
Other things that help boost your immune system:
Always speak to your health care professional before making any changes with your health care routine, except the smile, you can always smile:).

I love your site and is complementing all the bio hacking that we do here in Indiana :-) Do you do NAD IV therapy? Glutathione? Nrf2 or Nrf1 activation?
