Want to Fight Coronavirus? Beware of this Mainstream Advice
Health organizations are full of advice about preventing infection with coronavirus.
Wear masks in public.
Wash your hands.
Don’t touch your face.
You know the drill by now.
But there’s one piece of advice doled out by mainstream organizations that could not only increase your risk of getting sick… but can also make you more likely to experience more severe COVID-19 infection if you do become sick.
Here’s what you need to know to protect yourself.
The mainstream always warns people about the dangers of the sun, when the truth is that the sun is absolutely essential for health and life.
Toss in the advice to self-quarantine, and you’re left with countless people who are locked inside, missing out on the benefits of the sun’s rays.
And that could be VERY dangerous when it comes to beating coronavirus.
Because low levels of vitamin D (which your body makes from the sun) can increase your risk of developing a severe case of COVID-19.
Researchers compared the blood levels of vitamin D in people who tested negative for COVID-19 to the vitamin D levels of those who tested positive—and to those who were hospitalized.
Of the people they screened, the average vitamin D levels of those who did not have the coronavirus were in the normal range.
However, the average vitamin D levels of those who tested positive were too low. And those who were older with low D levels were more likely to experience more severe infections.
In fact, people over 50 with low D were twice as likely to be admitted to the hospital with COVID-19 than those with normal levels.
And people 25-29 with low D were 1.45 times more likely to be admitted to the hospital with COVID-19.
The researchers believe that vitamin D helps your body fight off the infection once you do get it, which would explain why the people with higher levels of vitamin D only had mild effects and didn’t need to be hospitalized.
Some people are quick to warn you that a study like this doesn’t prove that vitamin D prevents or reduces the impact of the coronavirus.
Of course it doesn’t.
But we’re not talking about taking a dangerous drug. We’re talking about making sure your body has enough of something it needs for optimal health. And if it can help your fight the coronavirus too?
This study is yet another reason to make sure your vitamin D levels are up to snuff—especially as we’re about to head into winter, when vitamin D levels tend to drop off in most people.
The single best way to do that is to spend more time in the sun.
But while being responsible, wearing your mask, and social distancing are all beneficial, locking yourself away is not.
Drink your coffee outside in the mornings. Take a walk in the afternoon.
Do some gardening.
However you do it, just make sure you’re getting plenty of sunshine every day.
And if you want some tips on how to include more vitamin D in your diet, stay tuned for Monday’s article.
