With the onslaught of the COVID-19 virus, the demand for healthy eating and lifestyle changes became more imminent in our minds. With all the variances of the virus, having a stronger immune system is one of the best defenses to fight disease and prolong life. All over the world, individuals are taking stock of their diet and making healthy changes.
Having a healthy immune system does not happen with a short term eating plan, the addition of a superfood, or and overuse of supplements. Instead, it is suggested that gradual building and maintaining the body’s defenses over time is the most effective strategy. This can be done through many different channels such as a healthy diet, regular exercise, sound mental health, and good sleeping habits.
At the North Central Regional Health Authority (NCRHA), we take advantage of this time to promote healthy eating with a lifelong approach during the week of June 1st– 5th, 2020.
