For those of us who still have to suit up and show up for work during the COVID-19 pandemic, there is surprisingly little information being offered about what you can do to boost your immune system beyond using hand sanitizer and wearing a mask of any sort any time you leave your home.

The truth is we’re walking germ farms. A part of the human experience is even trading germs so our bodies can mount healthy defenses against them, defenses that safe your life down the road.

Getting outside so you can get fresh air, vitamin D, and maybe have some healthy exchanges with some low-risk folks around this time, that will do a lot toward keeping your body in shape for warding off infection.

Right living is extremely important during this time. Eat clean, whole foods and cut out processed sugars and carbohydrates that cause inflammation, which disrupts your body’s natural processes, leaving you vulnerable to getting sick.

Get 7-9 hours of sleep. Your body uses this time to regenerate and detoxify itself. Anything less and you are rolling the dice when it comes to your health.

Chiropractic adjustments are another great way to give your immune system a quick boost, setting you up for success if you’re an essential worker.
