At Barton Chiropractic Clinic we're in the business of keeping our patients healthy and well for the long haul, and a part of that means educating our patients and readership about best practices and habits to adopt during times of strife. With the Coronavirus in full swing across the globe, it's important for each and every one of us to do our part to limit exposure and reduce the spread of this dangerous illness.
Below, Barton Chiropractic goes over a few tips to stay safe and healthy during this trying time.
Tip #1: Keep Your Hands Clean
Keep your hands off of surfaces that get used commonly by the public, such as door handles and handrails. If you must touch a surface commonly used, it's important to wash your hands. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth in order to limit your own exposure to germs.
Tip #2: Make Healthy Choices
Eat plenty of greens and fruits to boost your immune system during these times. Stay away from junk food. Keep your cardio in check, because your respiratory system is hugely important. As we are finding now, viruses tend to affect those with poor respiratory systems, those who are obese, and those who are of inadequate health more frequently than those who are not.
Tip #3: Head in for a Chiropractic Tune-Up
Come into Barton Chiropractic for an adjustment, which has been shown to help your GI tract and immune system function better, which will help your body fight off infections more effectively.
If you're feeling under the weather, make sure you stay at home. Stay away from large events where 100 or more people are gathering. If you have an older family member who is more at risk, try to keep your interactions with them over the phone until these riskier times have been put behind us. It's time to weather the storm together. Contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today if you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation.
