Here's a sneak peek on the latest episode from Get-Fit-Guy.
Each week, over at the Quick & Dirty Tips Network, I produce a free, easy-to-read article, accompanied by a short 5-10 minute audio version of that article. Everything there is focused on the latest fitness research, exercise news, and quick and highly practical muscle gain, fat loss and physical performance tips. It’s called “The Get-Fit Guy’s Quick & Dirty Tips To Slim Down & Shape Up”.
Here's what we have from this week's episode “Little Known Ways To Enhance The Immune System“.
You frequently wash your hands, take regular doses of vitamin C, and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. But somehow you find yourself sniffling, coughing, and sneezing more frequently…and it’s not even flu season. For hard-charging, high-achievers, this issue often strikes in the middle of an important work project, a family vacation, a bout of travel, or a crucial block of workouts or training sessions.
Think of just a few of the ho-hum, standard, old-school pieces of advice you’ve traditionally been given told to kick the cold, some ancient and some modern, including:
- Take oodles of vitamin C and zinc
- Get plenty of bed rest, don’t exercise or get exposed to cold you’ll weaken the immune system
- Use antibiotics or a handy Z-pac to fight off viruses
The problem is, most of these strategies simply don’t work and may end up weakening the immune system even further. In fact, supplements will help, but need to be in a high-enough dose and a form that you can actually absorb when you’re sick, exercise will actually facilitate the detox process while bed rest will keep lymph fluid stagnant, and antibiotics will wipe out the good bacteria in the gut that supports the healthy environment our body needs to heal.
The immune system just isn’t as simple as it sounds, and in this episode, you will discover the inner workings of human immunity, and underground, little-known methods to strengthen the immune system and bounce back from sickness fast.
