Boosting the Immune System and Soothing the Adrenals Before and After Covid

Optimal health is more than just not having sickness; it allows for greater ease in everyday life, maintaining a higher vibration, and amplifying our healthspan. We understand how important it is to take care of our bodies, but we don’t always know specific ways to do that. Even just a few changes can go a long way. Things like adding in a supplement, eating more greens, or drinking more water are all positive additions to our health routine. We don’t have to change everything at once, adding in one thing at a time leads to lasting changes and big results.

Can a Strong Immune System Fight Covid?

Although there is currently a gap between how modern medicine and alternative medicine are treating Covid and post-Covid, there are still many solutions available to aid the body in healing. Below are practical solutions to building the immune system up preventatively and in response to other conditions that may arise after having Covid. Often the longer you had Covid, the longer your recovery is. Boosting the immune system is the first step in quickening recovery and preventing more serious side effects from occurring.


Vitamin C for the Immune System

When the body is fighting off Covid, the immune system gets depleted. It’s harder for it to keep other conditions under control when so much energy goes to fighting off the virus. So underlying issues may arise causing post-Covid symptoms or illness. The number one thing to boost the immune system is a high-dose Vitamin C IV treatment. It’s essential to know the dosage that you are getting. A minimum of 20 grams is encouraged, but ideally you want closer to 50 grams.


How to Build Up Your Immune System After Covid

Both Sai Maa and Dr. Ankit encourage getting testing done on the levels of Zinc, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, and Selenium. These four vitamins and minerals tend to be low in those who have more severe cases of Covid. Getting your hormones tested and regulated can also greatly improve the functionality of your immune system and aid your body in healing.


Stress and the Adrenals

Not all forms of stress are the same, but all stress syndromes have one thing in common: they all start with the adrenal glands. All the hormones of the body are like branches of a tree; they are all connected and impact one another. Therefore, being aware of your hormone levels and practicing stress reduction techniques are important. Life stressors, or just being sick, can cause the hormones to fluctuate in such a way that causes more cortisol to be produced, increasing the stress load on the body. The higher levels of cortisol further inhibit immune responses. This cycle can be regulated with the following suggestions.

Meditation, yoga, deep breathing, Tai Chi, Brain Illumination, and light to moderate physical activity are practices that can dramatically calm down the nervous system, restore the adrenal glands, and enhance immune health. Ashwagandha is the simplest herbal remedy that can assist adrenal fatigue and stress responses in the body. It helps decrease the inflammatory process and is good as a preventative measure or a treatment for an acute condition.


The Gut Microbiome

There is more research available now on the crucial role of the gut microbiome in regulating the immune response, particularly in relation to COVID-19 prevention and recovery. It’s become clear that our gut microbiome, which consists of trillions of microorganisms, plays a significant role in our body’s ability to fight off infectious diseases, including COVID-19. This intricate ecosystem within our digestive system is not merely for processing food but serves as a foundational element of our immune defense. Probiotics, a beneficial bacteria that support a healthy gut microbiome, as a proactive measure for enhancing our immune function. By incorporating probiotics into our diet, either through supplements or fermented foods, we’re essentially bolstering our immune system’s readiness to confront and overcome viral infections. Attention to gut health and the strategic use of probiotics, emerges as a pivotal strategy for both the prevention of COVID-19 and the reduction of its post-infection impacts, illustrating the connection between our gut health and overall immune resilience.


Extend Your Healthspan for a Vibrant Life

Regardless of your age or where you are in your own healing journey, it is possible for each of us to maximize our healthspan and live longer, healthier, more radiant lives. Focusing on treating even just one symptom or reoccurring issue in the body is a step in the direction of embodying a vibrant life.
