The most important lesson this pandemic has shown us is how important it is to get healthy right now. Those most affected by Covid have by and large been those who are already unhealthy. So, did you learn the most important lesson? If not now, then when will you make changes?
The science has shown that when Covid kills it’s through causing a cytokine storm. Essentially it creates massive inflammation in all areas of the body and the body becomes overwhelmed. For people who are generally healthy, the effects of Covid are minimal.
When you already have a ton of inflammation in your body because of how you live, you cannot process more inflammation. This is when hospitalization and, in lots of cases, death occurs.
But the mainstream media and news outlets don’t want to talk about these details. Instead they spread fear and hate. We all need to pay greater attention to our health so that we’re here in 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 more years. Our friends and family deserve it.
Listen in for some quick tips on lowering your inflammation, where to start with meal ideas, and to learn why now is the best time to take back your health. You are the only one responsible for your health. Are you going to live up to the responsibility?
