Vitamins – Effective Against Disease

How sick we get when we catch different infections depends on everyone’s immune system. We each have a very complicated system of defense that is regulated on many levels.

Due to aging or the course of chronic diseases the efficiency of the immune system decreases. That is why certain groups of patients are particularly vulnerable to disease and suffer from more severe infections of any kind.

All of us have compromised our immune system in the past and we are not able to rebuild it overnight. Therefore, at this particular time we must pay attention to what we can do to best support it.

Diet, lifestyle, and the ability to deal with stress are the most crucial tools at our disposal to prevent severe complications due to viral infections. If we properly manage each of these things …

Finish faster than last time : Deborah 3 years After Gastric Sleeve

Imagine a life without stress… it’s not an easy task. It has long been known that stress is a part of life, but some of us can feel stress more than others. Let’s be honest, today’s world is not the most peaceful period in the history of mankind. We are in a pandemic that has been with us for many months, a presidential election that will be over soon, fires, hurricanes and other disturbing news from all around the world. On top of all that we deal with our own issues which each of us have and can be stressful.

All of these factors can very easily increase our stress levels. How do we stop and reduce tension? Albert Einstein supposedly said “life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” So maybe …

Even Mild Obesity Raises Odds for Severe COVID-19 Complications

It might be time to focus on your health goals. The latest report from Newsweek claims that even the “mildly obese” are at a higher risk for developing severe COVID-19 complications. Here is some more startling information:

The World Obesity Federation has called for the government to intervene after gathering evidence to prove a link between obesity and the severity of COVID-19. A second global entity, the World Health Organization, now lists obesity as a risk factor for getting seriously ill with COVID-19. Thirdly, a report out of the UK suggests that two thirds of those with severe COVID-19 were overweight or obese.

An Italian report suggests that 99% of the deaths occurred in patients with pre-existing conditions that are commonly seen in obese people: hypertension, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. While this is very upsetting that is not …
