Dr. Oz Revealed These Handy Tips For Giving Your Immune System A Much-Needed Boost

Dr. Oz Revealed These Handy Tips For Giving Your Immune System A Much-Needed Boost

Dr. Mehmet Oz spends his days doling out medical advice and health tips on his eponymous TV series. And now the famous health expert has shared a helpful set of tips to keep the immune system strong – and some of them are way easier than you might think.
It’s vital to your health that you keep your immune system in tip-top shape – regardless of the presence of a global viral threat. This group of cells, bodily chemicals and processes does its part to battle the toxins, bacteria and viruses that enter your system. In the face of coronavirus, then, it is worth keeping all of these defenses at the ready
Because of the novelty of the coronavirus, it’s unclear just how contagious – or deadly – it can be. But it has spread rapidly around the globe from its origin in Wuhan, China, and it has a mortality rate so far of between one and three percent. For that reason alone, it’s a good idea to fortify your immune system now – and Dr. Oz has shared his best methods for doing so.
What experts do know are the symptoms that come with this novel strain of coronavirus. The World Health Organization (WHO) has listed the most common symptoms as fever, dry cough and tiredness. On top of that, some have experienced aches and pains, nasal congestion, a runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea.

What Should You Know About Spinal Decompression Therapy

What Should You Know About Spinal Decompression Therapy

webmdlogo

"If you have lasting back pain and other related symptoms, you know how disruptive to your life it can be. You may be unable to think of little else except finding relief. Some people turn to spinal decompression therapy -- either surgical or nonsurgical"

"Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. That changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes pressure off the spinal disks -- gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine -- by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal."

Get Out Of The House

With Covid-19 and the resulting changes to our day-to-day activities, many of us are spending more time indoors on or in front of electronics and less time exploring and living life.  Kids and teens are statued in front of TVs engaged in Fortnite Battle Royales.  Moms and dads aren't far behind, binging on Netflix and eating up every last available byte of their neighborhood's shared bandwidth.  During these times, let's not forget how to live, to move, to explore.  If you're going stir crazy, if you're stuck indoors consuming copious amounts of bandwidth, we encourage you to take a break from all that heavy streaming of bites and bytes, and take some time to enjoy some living.  Get out of the house.  Throw on a mask and take a walk, a jog, a run or go for a drive.  Check out the birds, the squirrels, count some clouds, get some sun.  Be safe, social distance, but remember to get out of the house!

Alcohol Consumption Gets A Long Needed Cut

Since 1990, U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans has recommended no more than two alcoholic drinks for men and one drink for women daily. However, after 30 years that's about to change. The committee of experts responsible for these guidelines now recommend both men and women limit their alcohol consumption to a maximum of one drink per day, at most. A primary reason for this change is the link to cancer. According to researchers, alcohol consumption is the third most common cause of preventable cancer, aside from smoking and obesity. It's also important people understand these guidelines are not recommending adults drink one alcoholic beverage daily. Instead, the guidelines are for those who already consume alcohol to ensure they don't over indulge, as the data shows this increases their risk of death. In fact, the committee experts now explicitly discourage the drinking of alcohol for any reason.

Choose Water, Not Diabetes

New research based on tracking more than 80,000 women over a decade indicates replacing sugary drinks such as fruit juice and soda with water lowers the risk of developing diabetes. This finding does not appear to be based on higher water consumption in the diet. Instead, the reduction in developing diabetes appears to be related to the reduction in consuming sugary beverages. The more sugar-based drinks and fruit juices consumed the higher the risk of developing diabetes. Specifically, researchers found an approximate 10 percent higher incidence for diabetes with each cup of sugary drink / fruit juice consumed per day. Researchers also found that one cup of coffee or tea was a good replacement for one cup of sugary drink / fruit juice. So by swapping that soda, fruit juice or other sugar-based beverage with water, coffee or tea, additional calories can be eliminated from the diet and more importantly, a reduction in diabetes risk can be obtained.
