Staying healthy is certainly on our minds these days so I thought I’d share what I’m doing to ensure I stay ‘ON FORM’.

I’ve chosen these things specifically because they are proven to block Interleuken-6 (IL-6) inflammation, which is how COVID-19 affects our bodies. These are not a cure, but have been well researched to be effective in turning-off IL-6 inflammation in other instances.

Here’s what I’m doing:

  • Spicing things up: adding Sage, Oregano, Bay leaf, Rosemary & Curcumin to my food
  • Cooking with olive oil
  • Drinking green tea
  • Consuming bone broth every day to get in extra Glycine
  • Taking Magnesium, Zinc, Sulphoraphane (broccoli sprout extract),Omega 3 and Vitamin D3 with A &  K2 daily
  • I’ve also added Vitamin C for an extra immunity boost
  • I’m prioritizing sleep and letting myself wake-up naturally (or at least until the cat decides it’s time for me to wake-up!)
  • As the gym is closed, I go for a walk or do a home workout every day.
  • To keep my stress down, I only check one official COVID-19 website in the morning and watch one news program and avoid media the rest of the day.
  • Finally, I have Echinacea and L-Glutamine at the ready in case I start feeling respiratory symptoms.

FYI, these are the culprits that keep IL-6 inflammation going:

  • Fried foods
  • Sugar
  • High glycemic index foods (white bread, bagels, packaged breakfast cereals, rice, pasta, cake, cookies…)
  • Chronic insomnia
  • Over training or long endurance training
  • Smoking (including marijuana)
  • Alcohol

Stay strong and healthy,
