3 Tips to Prevent Getting Sick

  1. Avoid/reduce eating inflammatory foods. Avoid eating sugary treats and desserts! – sugar weakens your immune system.
  2. Getting quality restorative sleep for at least 8 hours – lack of sleep impairs the immune system. Our bodies naturally repair it’s self while sleeping by releasing certain disease-fighting chemicals.
  3. Avoid/reducing drinking alcohol (yes, this includes wine!) Alcohol dehydrates the body, the microbes in your gut and impairs your immune system up to 24 hours.

Getting sick is inevitable but we can heal it by healthy, wholesome, nutritious food that helps reduce inflammation and boost our immune system.

With the current news of COVID-19 epidemic (pandemic really…) it is a friendly reminder to treat our bodies well and to remember to wash your f*cking hands (with soup for at least 20 seconds)! Sing the Happy Birthday song 2x!
