5 Tips to Hedge against Respiratory Illness

By Todd Seabaugh | In Blog, Health & Wellness | on May 7, 2020

This article is an abbreviated callout from Dr. Aseem Malhotra’s March 22, 2020 work.

Dr. Malhotra asserts, “Data that has emerged on the coronavirus so far reveals which groups are at greater risk of developing more severe complications from the illness. In Italy, age initially appeared to be the key factor. With the oldest population in Europe by far, the median age of those succumbing to the virus was 81. But it wasn’t age alone; on average those individuals had 2.7 comorbidities, such as smoking, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, and cancer.”

A positive of the Pandemic (for every bad, we should look for off-setting good in my mind), is that the tragedy of it may wake people up and reverse our Type 2 diabetes and obesity epidemic.

So with that, here are the 5 tips to keep in mind…

Nutrition

  • Eat Whole Foods
  • Avoid Ultra-Processed Foods (prime examples being cookies, cakes, candies and potato chips)

Exercise

  • A daily bout of exercise: brisk walk or run outside, cycling or exercise in the home

Sleep

  • At least 7-8 hours per night

Meditation

  • 20 minutes of deep breathing in a quiet room

Stop Smoking NOW (if you do)
