How important is my immune system against COVID-19 and how can I boost it?
You get the flu. On a normal day, you might brush it off as just another flu. But not today.
Today, flu symptoms take on a different meaning. When you sneeze, cough and get a fever, your mind immediately races to the probability of being infected by the virus that caused a global health pandemic: the coronavirus disease 2019, COVID-19.
Millions all over the world are affected, with thousands of deaths reported. One common characteristic of the high mortality rate is that people who are immunocompromised or have underlying medical conditions are at significantly higher risk of death and long term side effects.
How do you know if you are at high-risk for this highly contagious virus?
Keeping up to date on your medical condition is one thing, but your immune system should also be strong enough to fight against COVID-19 should you get infected.
Does a strong immune system matter?
Yes. A strong immune system protects you from falling sick often. Today, a strong immune system could also mean the difference between life and death against COVID-19.
The immune system is your body’s natural defence against infections caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites, environmental toxins and fungi — all capable of making you sick. These invaders are invisible to the naked eye and can be transmitted through multiple ways: through air, direct contact with other people and contaminated objects or surfaces.
As of August 2020, we know COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks — entering another person’s body via their eyes, nose or mouth.
COVID-19 is highly contagious in nature and when inside the body, it models that speed — the viruses attach to the cells, hijack them and start to replicate and multiply. When triggered, the immune system then responds by producing antibodies and an array of cells to destroy the virus.
One way to tell when your immune system is definitely in combat mode, is when you experience symptoms such as cold or fever.
There are varying degrees in how COVID-19 affects infected people. Some only experience mild symptoms, some are asymptomatic, some are sick for extended periods and recover, and unfortunately, some never did. Most do recover but for those that don’t, their health decline can be sharp, and they die in as little as days after symptoms show and rapidly accelerate. There is growing evidence that serious lasting damage to multiple organs occurs in some patients as well.
This is a complex disease that delivers uncertain outcomes to different patient groups; we still don’t know enough about the long-term effects to even be 100% confident in any new vaccines.
How do I know if I have a weak immune system?
You would have noticed over time how your body reacts to illnesses. Do you easily fall sick and when you do, do you take a longer time to recover than usual? Do you often feel tired even after a good night’s rest?
If you answered ‘yes’, it’s likely that you have a weaker immune system. These are other telltale signs to look out for:
- Often get colds that take long to recover from
- Consistent digestive issues, such as diarrhoea, gas or constipation
- Slow recovery from wounds and infections
- Frequent headaches and migraines
- Frequent fatigue
- Joints ache
In short, if you are prone to falling sick often, then your immune system is not as strong as it should be.
But don’t worry, it’s perfectly common and doesn’t mean you will probably get COVID-19. Wearing a mask and following social distancing and hygiene measures consistently is still your strongest defence against COVID-19 infection. There are also many ways to boost your immune system. With the right immune booster treatment and improved lifestyle habits, you could be well on your way to a healthier and medically stronger version of you.
How can I boost my immune system?
We have established that a strong immune system is essential — not only against COVID-19 but also to give you consistently good health and qualify of life.
Its cliché but true: healthy lifestyle choices equal healthier immune systems. Sleep well, eat nutrient-rich foods, reduce intake of highly processed and sugary foods, get regular exercise, stay hydrated, manage your stress levels and consume the right supplements and probiotics.
In addition to making healthy lifestyle choices, you may want to try some of the latest preventative medicine treatments to compliment the immunity boost gained through rest, exercise, and nutrition.
Ozone Therapy is a safe and proven minimally-invasive procedure that increases the body’s natural antioxidant production and boosts the immune system. It introduces more oxygen into the bloodstream, which stimulates your red blood cells and improves blood circulation, which then improves the body’s healing process.
Regular treatments of Ozone Therapy have long been successful in fighting chronic viral infections, helping to stop them from spreading quickly. Other benefits include:
- Increase in energy
- Improved brain function
- Decreased inflammation
- Better resistance to infection
Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Therapy (Myer’s Cocktail) is a blend of nutrients and vitamins, injected into the body to enhance the immune system and treat chronic conditions, including upper respitory tract infections.
This wellness ‘recipe’ includes all the good stuff for our cells: Calcium, Magnesium, B Vitamins and Vitamin C.
Why inject instead of consuming these as supplements? The Myer’s Cocktail is much more effective than a supplement, as there are higher concentration levels in the bloodstream.
NAD+ IV Therapy is another modern option to boost the immune system — two or three sessions also helps to improve brain health, energy levels, digestion, metabolic function and has anti-aging benefits, including a stronger sex drive without using hormone therapies.
Keeping safe against COVID-19
With no known vaccine yet, prevention is still the most effective tool. The next best protection is to have a strong immune system to ensure that if your body plays host to COVID-19, you have the best chance at winning with minimal lasting side effects.
