The effects of social-distancing and self-quarantine have been known to have negative health consequences for those who put themselves through such isolating conditions. In the end, human beings are meant to be around each other. During this time many of us might have a whole new appreciation for others.
However, the fact remains that our immune systems could be compromised from this time we’ve stayed indoors. That’s why it’s important to make healthy choices and to double-down on our own wellness protocols as we acclimate back to some semblance of normal society.
First, it’s important to eat clean, whole foods. Don’t bog your body down with processed foods that also cause inflammation that makes your body more susceptible to infection. Drink plenty of water (half your body weight in ounces per day). Exercise, especially incorporating your cardiovascular system.
As restrictions become more relaxed, start meeting one-on-one with people you haven’t seen in awhile, as long as their not susceptible to COVID-19 and did not test positive. That way you can start exchanging that healthy biome that helps protect you from viral invasion.
Chiropractic treatment is also a great way to boost your immune system, setting the tone for a healthy summer. Contact Holmes Chiropractic to schedule your consultation today. We’re here to provide our essential treatments during this time of rebuilding.
