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.
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.
