Natural Ways to Help Protect Against Viral Infections - Key Predisposing Factors and How to Avoid Them If there is anything we have learned during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is the essential importance of prevention. We all know key preventive techniques like washing our hands, social distancing, wearing a mask, and disinfecting frequently used surfaces. But is there more we can do? We still have a lot to learn about the mechanics of COVID-19 infections and how they take hold. Why do some people get sick while others who are exposed to the virus do not? What are the general mechanics through which viruses take root in the body? Which are some of the common predisposing factors and how can we avoid them? And are there additional preventive techniques within systems of natural medicine for preventing viral infections that could potentially also be useful to prevent COVID-19? In this free download, Dr. Baxter Bell takes an in-depth look at the general factors that impact the risk of viral infections. He will also take a specific look at the mechanics by which COVID-19 wreaks havoc in the system, and why it is that some people are more vulnerable than others (Hint: a lot more than age is at play). We will also focus on a series of naturopathic techniques to prevent viral infections from taking hold or keep it from wreaking havoc on the system. Why is the COVID-19 infection more deadly than other forms of infection? Increasingly, researchers are pointing to chronic inflammation as one of the main risk factors leaving people more vulnerable to complications from COVID-19. We know that people with preexisting conditions like hypertension, heart disease, cancer and COPD are more vulnerable. But they all share one common risk factor - chronic inflammation. Inflammation is a natural immune system defense mechanism, but when it becomes chronic, it becomes a risk factor for a host of chronic conditions, including atherosclerosis, diabetes, arthritis, thyroid issues, fibromyalgia, and more. What predisposes us to chronic inflammation, and how do you know if you have it? How can yoga help prevent or curb chronic inflammation?
