Keeping you and your family healthy during this emergent situation
The landscape has changed dramatically because of Coronavirus. Here’s what Divine Spine Chiropractic Studio does to keep the environment safe.
Their priority lies in helping the people of Seattle navigate through these challenging times. The best way it’s done is by providing relevant information, answering questions, and clearing out the body’s nervous system to boost body immunity.
There is an analogy that best describes the work of a chiropractor. The first thing that comes to mind upon seeing rats at the dump is that it’s a rat problem. However, that’s not true. The garbage is the actual problem. The rats automatically leave upon removing the trash.
Similarly, the rats are the viruses in the human body while the body is the dump. Of course, it doesn’t imply that the human body looks or feels like a dump. The human body is pretty robust, capable, and healing. As long as the body is healthy and strong, it will take care of any germs or viruses.
Just maintain a habit of eating, thinking, moving, and resting well, and following these tips to keep safe in this emergency.
Eating whole foods during these times is critical. Having an anti-inflammatory diet with plenty of hydration helps the digestive tract and lymph system optimize themselves. Scientists estimate that 70% of our immunity lives in our gut. Feeding your body right is so important!
According to The World Health Organization, Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) account for 63% of worldwide deaths. That’s more than double the amount of infectious diseases, maternal and nutritional deficiencies combined. The point is the body should be strong enough to face viruses and bacteria and stop fearing them.
There is plenty of science that shows how important it is to move your body. The effects of exercise and movement are even better outside and in nature.
Going on a hike, riding a bike, or just getting outside and smelling the cherry blossoms will do lots of good. If going out isn’t possible, yoga or some other form of exercise indoors will also help.
https://doyogawithme.com is a free and exciting yoga site with workouts as short as 10 minutes and as long as 90 minutes, making it ideal for both amateurs and professionals.
Moving the spine is the most important one. There isn’t any form of exercise that can replace a chiropractic adjustment. Regular chiropractic care helps remove any interaction between the brain and body, including the immune system. Research shows a significant increase of about 48% in immunity with consistent care.
Thoughts may be the most important of the four categories. The way a person thinks affects and manifests itself through actions.
For example, some people believe that their body is weak and live in constant fear of COVID-19. Their thoughts end up negatively affecting their body chemistry and end up suppressing their body immunity.
On the contrary, those who take proactive steps and believe their body is robust, capable and healthy, stimulate the release of healthy chemistry in their bodies that boosts their immunity.
Avoiding binge-watching the news and limiting social media helps. While it’s essential to be updated, be careful of the news’s effects on the mind. Step away, take breaks and spend time with loved ones. Start filling the soul with positive, uplifting stories, laughing a lot, and watching inspiring stories trigger a marked difference in thoughts.
The human body needs, on average, 8 hours of sleep a night to recharge fully. The body fully heals while sleeping. Give it the time; it needs to heal and prepare itself for the next day. However, the body may require more sleep, about 9 to 10 hours, when under mental stress.
WASH HANDS REGULARLY
Make it a habit to wash hands regularly, and it’s a good habit to follow.
Be smart and wash your hands regularly. It is always a great habit to do this. Research has shown that warm water, friction, regular soap, or washing hands remove dirt and germs and help fight against coronavirus.
WIPE EVERYTHING TOUCHED
Wipe everything that comes with contact regularly in the outside world, like all handheld devices, purses, wallets, or money, with a clean cloth.
AVOID TOUCHING NOSE, EYES, EARS, OR MOUTH
Do not put fingers in the nose, eyes, ears, or mouth when around other people.
COUGH OR SNEEZE INTO THE ELBOW
Coughing or sneezing into the elbow with fabric or tissue also helps prevent the spread of coronavirus.
