Hearing the Silence August 13 2020

As we continue to tread through this pandemic there is a silence that I have noticed.  A silence around how to build our immunity.  What to do to create better all-around health so that our bodies can perform at their best.  A return to our wholeness.  I have always had an interest in health and wellness, so it is no surprise that I find myself wanting to share the things I have learned along the way.  I am no expert so I will draw what speaks to me from someone who is a health professional that I admire and respect, Dr. Christiane Northrup.  She is a board-certified physician and a pioneer and leading authority in the field of women’s health and wellness.  In her article “Build Your Immunity” she marks the following components to a strong immune system:


  1. Optimum Vitamin D levels
  2. Vitamin C 1000-2000mg daily, more if tolerable
  3. 8-10 hours of sleep
  4. Decrease stress hormones through:
  1. Be Media Savvy (I call this a media diet and it has proved critical in alleviating anxiety)
  2. Keeping upbeat company

I practice each of these and have found myself feeling strong, recovering well from workouts and energized throughout the day.  The information provided in the article is more comprehensive so if you care to take a look click HERE.  During a time of great change, we have an opportunity to learn and grow.  My hope is that this will inspire you to more sustainable wellness.
