Every week there are new things in the news on how we can beat the virus,but without adequate scientific evidence we really are in the dark as to how to combat this frightening disease. The fact is many of us are yet to contract the virus and it is still very much out there.
Some experts are saying that we will just have to learn to live with it,just as we do with flu. Continued social distancing and good hygiene will certainly help control the spread, but there are other things we can do to protect ourselves and keep our immune system working well.
Lifestyle choices including diet and exercise are key to our overall health.Research suggests that many of us could be living with undiagnosed type 2 diabetes which puts those people in the vulnerable category. Home test kits can be purchased from reputable chemists to test for this. If you do fall into this category dieting can help improve or even put the condition into remission.
A healthy diet can also improve heart health which is also a key factor in fighting Covid, and as with diabetes there are many people living with undiagnosed heart conditions. Try the online heart health test from the NHS which could give you a good indication, it will also give you guidelines as to how you can take care of your heart.
As always the advice of good diet and plenty of exercise is paramount in these uncertain times.
