Everyone is talking about the Coronavirus. I am no different in that I’m doing the same. I could give you my opinion and suggestions on what types of supplements and etc. to take that would boost the immune system. Instead, my thoughts go down a different path….
How about prevention through how we think, what we put into our bodies, and how we connect to God?
Preventing a virus by the way we think could go in a million directions! Don't misunderstand me... I'm not talking about having "happy thoughts and you won't catch a virus". Instead....How about these “thoughts” (no pun intended! LOL).... Are you in fear? Do you create your own anxiety? Will having fear/anxiety change the outcome of something? Of course not. Instead, its impact will add emotional and physical stress. As we all know, stress on the body is not good 100% of the time!! Thinking in a way that is realistic and positive will actually help you handle outside stress. We may not be able to change the circumstance but we can change our thinking in order to get through the circumstance.
Just a thought…
What we put in our bodies or how we eat affects everything in the body. Do you choose convenience processed food or do you choose food that has nutritional value? Our bodies are designed to absorb nutrients from plant and animal sources in order to have energy and function. Wasn’t it Socrates that said “ Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”?
Our physical health is influenced by our spiritual health. Faith gives people a sense of meaning and purpose. Having a sense of meaning and purpose affects how we think. How and what we think affects our body. There is a Proverb that states “Keep My commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity.”
My final thought….“stinkin” thinking, food without nutritional value, and not having a sense of meaning and purpose will negatively impact your immune system. In our current circumstances; shouldn't we work on prevention through a strong immune system?
