The Anti-Covid Medicine You Don’t Need To Wait For

With 2020 coming to an end, if there’s one topic that’s dominated the world more than Donald Trump, it’s the pandemic. Experts and non-experts (Union Minister Ramdas Athawale chanting ‘Go Corona Go’) have all offered various advice on dealing with COVID-19. Sure, there’s maintaining hygiene, following social distancing, wearing a mask in public, and so on. But if there’s one thing they all agree upon, it’s that the best way to combat the virus is to boost your immunity. Of course, there are many ways to do that such as maintaining a balanced diet, getting enough shut-eye, drinking alcohol in moderation, upping your Vitamin C intake yada, yada. But of paramount importance – this is coming from doctors – is getting some vigorous exercise into your routine. Something as simple as a 20-minute jog a few times a week can increase your chances of keeping the virus away.

When you exercise, we’re talking moderate to vigorous intensity, it increases the blood and lymph flow as your muscles contract, and it also increases the circulation of immune cells. Exercising regularly will ensure a higher circulation of immune cells roaming in your body. Sounds too scientific? We’ll simplify it. Imagine that you own a beautiful home and employ a housekeeper to clean it every day. You never have to worry about your home being dust-free, well-maintained and clean. Exercise is a similar investment for your body that you have to ensure you indulge in on a daily basis. After all, you can’t expect your home to be spick and span if it’s cleaned just once a month, do you?

Just like all good things in life, moderation is key. Start small, build up your stamina and strength and do not overdo it. You don’t need more than 45-60 minutes of daily exercise to boost your immunity. Going overboard may put your body in a stressful state which can cause lowered immune function.
