Do you want further evidence to protect yourself from the corona virus? One expert says you better start running. “ Now more than ever people should be exercising.” Said Dr. David Neiman a professor at Appalachian State University. “ The effects of physical activity on the immune system are so important.” Neiman studies how exercise impacts the immune system. “ He said 30-60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity can actually release extra immune cells”
One thing I teach is foods that weaken your immune system. Soda,processed foods ,high sugar foods and drinks,refined carbohydrates, and alcohol. Yes this a just a general list and that’s why I have cleints track food and drink specifically on weekends because eating patterns tend to be more lax !
