The Secret Key To A Strong Immune System
Being locked at home, limiting our social interactions, not getting enough sun, dealing with news, fear and judgment on a daily basis have lowered our immune system.
In fact, a new report from the CDC analyzed Covid-19 hospitalizations and severe illnesses from over 800 U.S. hospitals and over 540,000 citizens over the course of a year.
They found that the strongest risk factors for death from Covid-19 were, #1 obesity (which is already well established—not being addressed, but already well established), and #2 (the 2nd biggest risk factor for death from covid-19) is anxiety and fear-related disorders!
It might not even sound real.
How can fear and anxiety increase your risk of death from a viral infection?
Well, it’s the subject of one of the fastest growing fields of science, psychoneuroimmunology.
A consistent state of fear can cripple your immune system, disrupt cellular communication, and dramatically increase your risk of disease… as noted in this new report.
A Strong Immune System Starts In Our Cells
Inside each of the trillions of cells in your body are mitochondria. These organelles are the powerhouse of your cells. They generate a lot of the chemical energy you need for your cells to work. That energy is stored in a molecule called adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
The more ATP the mitochondria produces, the stronger your cells are.
Without ATP, we die. It’s as simple as that.
ATP is essentially the energy currency of the cells in our bodies.
By restoring ATP levels, we literally “recharge our batteries,” relieving fatigue and restoring more youthful energy levels.
