Eat Smarter- OUTWIT COVID19

Updated: May 22, 2020

  • Stay home. Save lives. Good advice to help stop coronavirus.

  • Please follow all the guidelines by the Center for Disease Control.

  • With that said, it may be time for us to look seriously at what it takes to have a healthy immune system.

By omitting the importance of nutrition There may be a serious “knowledge vacuum”  that is possibly sending out a negative message about the importance of nutrition in disease & Illness prevention.

In allopathic medicine, effective treatment relied on considering the patient as a whole. Diet, sleep, work, and exercise were all seen as important factors that could play a role in producing - and reversing - the imbalance in humours that was believed to result in illness.

While we no longer describe our moods or functional body systems parts as humours (bile?  anyone?) We do need to remember that we are a system. Since there is no manual that comes with each person What you know about basics like food can give you an edge in a short amount of time- about 3 months.

This may be a great time to reflect on your nutritional choices. Are you truly taking in fruits vegetables and high-quality protein to rebuild your body? If you're thinking about the answer to this question chances are you are not.

This may be an opportune time to Journal what you're eating. By recording your meals, you may be able to spot the flaws in your nutritional program and make repairs that may benefit your health and boost your immune system. Hopefully, with improved nutrition, you can boost your immune system and cut down on your chances of contracting the disease and illness over time.

For many years many Americans have opted to rely on fast food. We found it fun.

Fast food was convenient.

And let us admit it- Fast Food was a reward …. How did we get in this trap?


Post-1960s- both men and women worked, leaving the kids at home SO mass-produced foods weak in which nutritional value saved time.  Well, guess what? COVID-19 means you have time at home to address your meals. Now with food delivery becoming more difficult. And now with  Money a little tighter …... Why pay for food that has the nutrition cooked out of It?

Why pay for take-out that relies heavily upon sugar fat and salt for taste?

Fast food will not give you an edge with your Health especially when it is devoid of vitamins. Check out these publications Eat This Not That & Superfoods RX

We also know that fast food, and less than nutritional choices overall set you up for the two  (problems) that make it harder to survive a rigorous infection of any type. With COVID 19 having clogged arteries or a kidney system that's so stressed that you are diabetic make it quite a bit harder to fight this novel virus. So if you can make some changes to drop that A1c level or eat more fruit to keep those arteries elastic-- Good For You! You need every advantage you can get!
