The Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has spread significantly into a full pandemic. It has infected and killed thousands in a short amount of time. While there isn’t reason to panic, there is plenty of reasons to be concerned and take precautions. With many deaths already documented and many more to be diagnosed, a lot of us are wracking our brains to figure just how we are to deal with it as it draws in closer.
A lot of what goes into fighting diseases and viruses has to do with our own built in systems that naturally fight off germs that attack. Our immune system is an extremely complex system and no doubt our knowledge only grows deeper as we find out more about how it works. To have a strong system we must take into account that what we do, eat, and activities we partake in plays a large role in how our bodies ward off illnesses. What you eat, your stress levels, sleep habits, etc. can make or break your chances of fighting off these germs that we inevitably come into contact with on a day to day basis. If you could learn more about how to increase your chances in fighting off these bad bugs, would you take it? To help I have compiled a list of 3 informative books that can give you the information you need to start building your immune system and taking control of your health!
