I’m sure at this point in time you’ve heard of corona. And no, I’m not talking about the beer that people love to slam limes into and guzzle when they’re feeling parched. That adult beverage has zero to do with the topic at hand today.
We are talking about the coronavirus. It is no secret that this condition has gotten everyone’s attention. In fact, it has been claimed as a pandemic, which occurs when there is a takeover of a condition that spans an entire country or the world.
Airports are shutting down, sports leagues are postponing games, gyms are becoming empty and people are flocking to stores to stock up on items they feel they “might” need in the near future. The latter is a bit overkill.
Don’t be one of those selfish, greedy people who hoard all the toilet paper and food in sight and leave nothing for anyone else. Haven’t you ever heard of being generous? Well, now is the time to do just that. But fear has a very voracious appetite, and it can cause people to take drastic measures. It’s almost like there is a perennial full moon.
All this being said, there are things you can do to prevent yourself from being another statistic to add to the many. And it starts with your hormones—more specifically, human growth hormone (HGH). But before we get there, let’s address the reason for the scare in the first place.
The Lowdown with Corona
First of all, the actual flu takes more lives than the coronavirus. But the main problem is, the germs from the coronavirus are more potent and can survive out in space for up to 7 days. Germs associated with the flu have a lifespan of 24 hours. Although the symptoms are relatively the same, the shelf-life is not.
And the incubation period of the coronavirus is 2 weeks. This is where all the problems set in. You can get the virus days after being exposed to the germs, AND you may not even know you have it for another 2 weeks. This makes you contagious for that entire time frame, which is the entire reason why it is causing such a problem on a global scale.
Suffice it to say, there is a list of precautionary measures you can take to safeguard yourself from COVID-19, which is the scientific name for the coronavirus. Technically it stands from coronavirus disease 2019. But it doesn’t matter what you call it. What DOES matter is, there are things you can do to dodge it.
First of all, be very careful about going into public places that have a high density of people. Like mentioned above, this would include things like concerts, soccer games, airports, train stations and shopping malls. If you REALLY want to prevent yourself from getting it, it’s best to steer clear of all of the above.
If you do go to them, be on guard for people sneezing, coughing, blowing their nose and shaking your hand if you just meet them. A safe distance is 6 feet or more. The germs can linger anywhere inside that perimeter.
Wash your hands continuously throughout the day, especially when using public places that require you to open and close doors or place your hands where others might’ve placed theirs.
Make sure to get plenty of rest, eat a clean diet with immunity-boosting foods and drink plenty of water. That’s a recipe for dodging any form of cold or flu, actually. But you want to make extra sure to adhere to it, given the current situation.
The Importance of HGH
Now let’s shift gears to HGH. As you probably know by now, HGH and testosterone get a lot of recognition as the master hormones in the body. And that is 100 percent accurate. They help with muscle strength and size, energy levels, brain function, mood and sexual function.
It’s easy to see why they are the master hormones. But there is another layer to HGH that you may not be aware of. It is also very important for immune function. Here’s the reason why.
You have a small gland located inside your chest called the thymus. It is most active up until you reach puberty, then it kind of goes dormant. But, it is still responsible for boosting the immune system through the production of T-cells, also known as lymphocyte immune cells.
Growth hormone plays a starring role in T-cell production by promoting the thymus to pump them out. This, in turn, shows the importance of boosting HGH in your body. And this is also what makes the steps listed above so important. All of which can have a positive effect on your growth hormone levels.
And sleep is one of the most important. It is during quality sleep that your HGH levels experience a drastic increase. Have you ever been told that you got sick because your “resistance was down?” Well chances are, you were probably sleep-deprived.
That is one of the most opportune times for disease and sickness to set it. If you get adequate sleep every night and even take power naps when feeling tired, you will spike your HGH level and likely avoid any consequences.
Your thymus will then pump out healthy T-cells that can divert you from getting COVID-19. But this is the best-case scenario.
In the event your HGH levels are low, you can also get treatments from our clinic to get them back up to par. Then you know for a fact that your immunity will be soaring high and you are at even less risk for contracting the virus.
Final Biohacks to Consider
You know sleep and eating clean and avoiding jenky areas are some of the keys to avoid COVID-19. But to be more specific, eat immunity boosting foods like greens, berries, citrus fruits, garlic, broccoli and anything with bright colors.
In doing so, avoid excessive amounts of alcohol, processed meats, simple sugars and sweet beverages. All of which lower immunity.
Exercise is also a good option to boost the immune system. Just be careful in gyms because of the D-bags who don’t clean the machines when they’re done. And you can go one step further by doing high-intensity, interval training a few days a week. This will further boost your HGH levels naturally.
The last biohack to take into consideration is, think positive and get a lot of physical touch from your partner. Human connection is a very real and important thing, and it has been proven to make you healthier, happier, more successful and more resistant to diseases.
