In our continuing coverage of the coronavirus pandemic, today we bring you our latest CYInterview with one of our regulars, our dear friend, neuroscientist Dr. Kristen Willeumier. With an exceptional educational background in psychology, physiology and neurobiology and with significant practical experience and uncommon wisdom, Kristen is able to break down complex issues into readily understandable action steps.
In this CYInterview, Dr. Willeumier discusses three action steps, which we may choose, to take in order to work towards strengthening our immune system. As always, please consult your physician before making any changes to your daily health regimen.
Dr. Willeumier’s three steps are:
1.) Improving nutrition for a better immune system. She suggests taking Vitamin C and Vitamin D along with a daily dose of Zinc, in order to help immune function.
2.) Find ways to exercise and add movement to your life while maintaining physical distancing.
3.) Be mindful of the information you read. Make sure you are reading trusted sources. Read every day to find new information about the coronavirus pandemic, but do not get bogged down in information overload.
Additionally, featured columnist Jay Bildstein and Dr. Kristen Willeumier had a discussion about the poor health of many Americans and how it is time for the country to adopt healthier choices in their daily life. Regarding that, Dr. Willeumier shared this:
“My hope when we come out of this a year from now is that we’re just thinking more about our health and our well being and, you know, hopefully there is something positive that can come from what really feels like just a horrible, horrible time we’re living through.”
