27 Apr, 2020045 How to thrive in challenging times – Your Immune System needs you 3-4
Welcome to episode 3 of a series of 4 podcasts on How To Thrive In Challenging Times. This episode is called Your Immunity Needs You
When you look at the statistics of those who have lost their lives to Coronavirus something becomes very clear. The vast majority of deaths have been of people who had an underlying health condition.
Did you know that only a tiny proportion of medical conditions are outside our control? There are a few which we are born with and the rest come from our lifestyle. We eat processed foods which are low on essential nutrients, we work indoors in artificially lit and ventilated buildings, we fill the world with exhaust fumes and chemicals and we move as little as possible.
That is the life we have chosen to live – and everything in modern society is designed around that. Order online, have everything delivered to the door, shopping centres outside town with great big car parks, convenience foods….
All these features of the way we live make us feel that we are in control. The truth is, we aren’t. But we can control our immunity.
Take a brief inventory of your body. What state are you in right now? How does your body look? How well does your brain function? How much energy do you have at your command? How dependant are you on pills and potions and chemicals?
We KNOW what it takes to be healthy. It’s just that we don’t make those choices.
Think of illness and disease as the enemy – and your immunity is the army. If you don’t give your soldiers what they need, they are going to lose the battle.
If you want to cultivate a strong immune system, you don’t have to do anything drastic. All you need is the courage to put your immunity first and immediate impulses second.
