The “Healthy” Foods You Should NEVER EAT, Boosting Your Immune System and COVID-19

Reset your health. Strength your defenses. Live a healthier life.

Maybe you’re one of those people who always gets sick. You have seasonal allergies, you always pick up a couple colds in the winter, and you sometimes even get the flu. And it’s not that you have terrible hygiene — you just get sick a lot.

It’s easy to blame our “genes” for this sort of thing. We think that our immune systems are just “weaker” than other people’s, and so we accept it and move on.

If you’re one of these people, you’re probably experiencing some anxiety right now with COVID-19 on the rise. Maybe your hands have become dry after using so much hand sanitizer, and you have no trust in your body to protect itself.

I’ve got some good news for you — you have a lot more control over your immune system than you think. It all goes back to gut health — what things are you putting in your body? We often think of healthy and unhealthy food in terms of calories, but it’s a lot more than that. The foods we eat affect our mental performance, our emotions, and our physical health.

So be encouraged — even if your immune system hasn’t always been great, you have the power to change that.

I’ve got an expert on The School of Greatness to show you how, especially in light of the COVID-19 outbreak.

“A leaky gut is the cause of all disease.” @DrGundry

In times like now, it is so important to make sure our bodies are healthy and our immune systems are strong. Learn how to take control of your health, strengthen your defenses, and protect yourself from COVID-19 on Episode 935 with the wonderful Dr. Steven Gundry.
