Why Should You Wash Your Hands
Soap and water can be hugely helpful in stopping transmission of the infection. Some viruses have a lipid (or fatty) layer on the outside, so simple hand washing breaks them down and stops them spreading. Most hand sanitizers are 65% alcohol based and only work for as long as the solution is wet, which is about 45 seconds at best and then the hands can be more exposed. We suggest Silvera Super Gel www.silverasilver.com which is 100% natural and can protect all day...your hands, body and face will feel silky clean not dry and crackly.
We’ve also learned that a person’s underlying level of health is relevant to how well the body copes with infection and disease, prescription medications can destroy the immune system and can leave the body more vulnerable. Lifestyle changes can do nothing to stop you from becoming unwell – that mostly comes down to hand hygiene or social distancing techniques – but they can help to strengthen your body and mind.
The strength of the immune system determines its ability to fight off disease.
The media is one of the largest contributors to the nation’s mental health. In this time of stress, it’s useful to remember stress hormones can greatly weaken the immune system. For a change read a book, go for a walk or simply reconnect with an old friend...it can take you away from the everyday!
In short supply, the stress hormone cortisol can boost immunity by limiting inflammation. But, once it crosses a certain threshold, too much cortisol in the blood opens the door for more inflammation.
Stress can also negatively impact the production of lymphocytes — the white blood cells that are the body’s first line of defence against infection...putting you at potential risk of viral disease. Consider limiting your daily screen time and take breaks when you feel burned out. Relaxation techniques like meditation and gentle exercise might also help. Drink a glass of water and appreciate a little peace and quiet without thinking.
Regular exercise promotes cardiovascular health, lowers blood pressure, helps control body weight, and offers protection against diseases. If you find yourself stressing out, having a tough time coping with some issues we consider taking that negative energy and directing it towards self help.
Exercise also improves blood circulation, allowing immune system cells to move through the body more freely and do their job more effectively.
Eat a balanced diet
The immune system is the body’s natural defence system, and (like any army) its soldiers need sustenance. Try to eat a balanced diet with fruits and vegetables in order to receive the right proportion of micronutrients. The western diet lacks most of the trace minerals the body depends on to keep healthy, we suggest trying 72 Trace Minerals which is coming soon!

Smoking tobacco has several negative effects on immune system health, such as:
- Greater susceptibility to infections such as pneumonia and influenza.
- More severe and longer-lasting illnesses.
- Lower levels of protective antioxidants (such as vitamin C), in the blood.
Are You Sleepy?
Studies show that people who don’t get enough sleep or good quality sleep are more likely to get sick after being exposed to a virus. The brain to gut connection is undeniable and one in every four Americans now suffer from insomnia. Many are seeking gut solutions to strengthen immune support which can also greatly decrease insomnia. We suggest trying Silvera Structured Silver, a new gut solution only available in the United States.
When we sleep, the body releases proteins called cytokines, while sleep deprivation decreases their production. Cytokines are paramount during times of infection or inflammation.
