Did you know what you eat can benefit your lung function and improve your respiratory system health?

Today we explore food and exercises to improve conditions in the air passageways to make your lungs stronger. We often don't consider the important role our lungs play in keeping us well. It is not until we experience problems breathing that we take notice.

Recently there has been a lot of attention about lung function and the respiratory system. The new Covid-19 virus attacks the lungs and researchers are trying to understand why.  But until they figure it out, we need to protect ourselves as best we can.

Most people don't know this, but lung function starts to decline at age 30. After the age of 35, breathing becomes gradually more difficult.

The respiratory system does two critical things. It brings oxygen into our bodies, which we need for our cells to function properly. It also helps us get rid of carbon dioxide.

Carbon dioxide must be removed from the bloodstream before it reaches harmful levels.

When the air sacs become inflamed, we are unable to get enough oxygen to the bloodstream and it reduces the body's ability to get rid of carbon dioxide. This can cause severe pneumonia.

Lung and respiratory disease are some of the most common medical conditions in the world.

The goal of today’s podcast is to get your respiratory system and lungs in tip-top shape to reduce your risk of severe infection.

Even in the best of times, many people struggle to get high-quality sleep.  So today's podcast is devoted to foods to help you sleep.

Since my last podcast, our life, as we know it, has changed drastically. Stress and anxiety are at an all-time high. The coronavirus has changed how we conduct our daily lives, and change is hard.

The first thing I would like to say is stimulate don't isolate. Meaning, take this downtime as an opportunity to do something different. So many of us rush through our moments in life because we are so busy. And now we have literally been forced to stop what we are currently doing.

If you are sick, I am sending you compassion. Here's to you getting steadier, stronger, and healthier every day. I know you can do it.

With big change, comes stress. When we are stressed, it is hard to sleep soundly. And sleep deprivation, weakens your immunity. Virus outbreaks are not the time for a weak immune system.

The good news is, there are foods to help you sleep.

Foods To Help Your Sleep and Strengthen Your Immune System

Not only that, these foods can help you build a stronger immunity to disease. Because, according to Mayo Clinic, the strength of your immune system is dependent on a good night sleep. Lack of sleep can also affect how fast you recover if you do get sick.

Given the heightened risk of contracting the novel coronavirus, today’s podcast is dedicated to the single best thing you can do to avoid it.

Unquestionably, I am not an alarmist, but sometimes we need to prepare for a possible disruption in our lives like the novel coronavirus. 

Also, as of today, March 5, the chances of contracting the novel coronavirus is very low, so please don’t panic. But that doesn’t mean we can’t take precautions. 

First off, we are being inundated with new, unfamiliar words and phrases.

For example, SARS-CoV-2 is the official name of the novel coronavirus that is spreading. COVID-19 is the disease it causes. 

Most media outlets use the term coronavirus to describe SARS-CoV2. 

Coronaviruses CoV is a family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe disease.

There are hundreds of coronaviruses, most of which circulate among animals including pigs, camels, bats and cats

As a result, the term novel coronavirus (nCoV), means this virus is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. 

It should be noted, that odds are you won’t contract novel coronavirus. Especially if you know how to protect your body from the infection.

Learn today your best defense against the novel coronavirus and the best protection against any flu. 

Today’s podcast includes a recipe from “The Easy 5 Ingredient Vegan Cookbook” available now on Amazon.

My sponsor for today’s podcast is Ordinary Vegan’s pure organic vegan CBD Oil made from Hemp.

In short, as more research comes in, we are learning that CBD is especially helpful for seniors with aches, pains, and overall wellness. You can find all of Ordinary Vegan’s CBD products made from Hemp here
