3 (Free) Ways to Protect Yourself Against Coronavirus

A lot of you are on the spectrum between “feeling some concern” about the coronavirus to “freaking out” about it! 

Today I’d like to give you 3 simple and free tools to help you protect yourself against this infection.

1. Avoid sugar. Sugar is one of the worst things you can eat when it comes to supporting your immune system. Even a few teaspoons of sugar knocks your immune system down for HOURS. If you eat some sugar throughout the day, your immune system is going to be operating at partial strength all day long. Sugar suppresses or weakens your immune system. Use this health scare as an excuse to clean up your diet and kick sugary foods, drinks, and refined carbs (think white flour) to the curb.

2. Get your rest. Sleep is a vital time where your body recovers and prepares for the next day. Make sure you’re getting 7-8 hours every night.

3. Manage your stress. Did you know that your stress hormones temporarily lower your immune system’s ability to fight infection?
Checking in with yourself often throughout the day, taking some deep breaths, noticing when you are worrying and shifting your focus to either a helpful action or a place of compassion are all great ways to keep your stress hormones in check and your immune system working more effectively.

It is my passion to work with people like you whose health symptoms are getting in the way of you living life fully and with a sense of freedom in your body. I am here to help you to regain your health so you can feel great and free to enjoy life fully.

If you would like more tips for keeping your immune system strong, check this out, or feel free to message me directly.

Delicious superfoods that heal your gut

Your gut health is the key that unlocks the health of your entire body.
Today I’d like to share some tasty foods with you that also nourish your gut and boost your health.

It is my passion to work with people like you whose health symptoms are getting in the way of you living life fully and with a sense of freedom in your body. I can help you to regain your health so you can feel great and free to enjoy life fully.

Polyphenols and Your Gut

Polyphenols are a group of naturally occurring micronutrients in plants that give plants their color. They also help to protect plants from various dangers (insects, UV damage, diseases). When you eat plants with polyphenols, you reap the health benefits as well. There are over 500 polyphenols found in different plants!
 
Polyphenols are processed by your gut bacteria. When your gut bacteria breaks them down, the metabolites contribute to the maintenance of gut health and overall health in a couple key ways:

  1. Polyphenols support gut microbial balance. They enhance the growth of beneficial bacteria and inhibit the growth of pathogens. In this way they help your gut health much like probiotics and prebiotics do. 
  2. Polyphenols are rich in antioxidants so they help reduce inflammation and protect your cells (including your gut cells and brain cells) from damage. Polyphenols have also been found to promote cognitive function.

Foods Rich in Polyphenols

The spice cloves are the #1 highest source of polyphenols. Other great sources are cocoa, green tea, olives, olive oil, artichokes, thyme, rosemary, curry powder, star anise, hazelnuts, pecans, berries, coffee and red wine (but be careful not to overdo those last two or you cancel out the benefits!).

It’s best to get your polyphenols from foods rather than supplements. Using this list to guide you, look at how you can add some of these herbs, spices and foods into your diet.
