Two years into this pandemic and the best advice hasn't changed.
Coronavirus/COVID-19 has been dominating our headlines for 2 years now, and what have we learned?
Lock-downs, mandates, masks, ventilators, plexiglass, vaccines, Ivermectin, social distancing, travel restrictions, etc. The list of policies, topics, politics, and interventions goes on, yet the single best strategy for keeping you and your family healthy hasn't changed.
The best strategy for surviving COVID existed before COVID, worked during COVID, and will be true when the next pandemic comes along.
You have to take responsibility for your own health and focus on building a strong, healthy, and resilient body.
Especially if there is a new virus spreading across the world, the only logical strategy is to focus on your personal health, particularly the health of your immune system.
Instead of plexiglass and social distancing, if every citizen had just taken a couple of simple steps to build a healthier body, the pandemic could have been even less benign than it already was.
What are some simple lifestyle choices people could take to build a healthier body?
There are so many!
Get more sunshine on your skin.
More exercise, just a simple walk around the block is a good start.
Reduce sugar and junk food.
Take Vitamin D3.
Invest in quality relationships.
Take Vitamin C or Zinc or Omega 3 EFA
As we've observed over the past 2 years, relying on our public health institutions, pharmaceutical companies, and politicians doesn't work out very well.
Your personal health (and the health of your family) is your responsibility and no else's. One of the circumstances that got us into this mess is that many of our fellow citizens have been farming out the responsibility of their health to health insurance companies, doctors, pharmaceutical companies, and government agencies.
How does one know if they are taking responsibility for their own health? That's a good question with no simple answer, but here is a good starting point:
When the pandemic hit, did you:
Expect other people to keep you safe?
Wear a mask but not do things to make your immune system stronger?
Let fear raise your anxiety without taking action for making yourself healthier?
Expect other people to wear masks or get vaccinated so that you didn't have to change anything in your lifestyle?
If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, it may be time to take a look in the mirror and have a heart-to-heart with yourself about whether you are taking full responsibility for your own personal health.
