In this week’s episode I talk about how the current situation could be affecting your immune system and what you can do to help combat it. 

Due to COVID-19, the restrictions and the lockdowns, the past year has been and continues to be a very stressful time for many. Whether its from fear of getting the virus, financial stress caused by the lockdowns or anxiety in isolation, all of these things cause stress in our bodies. 

You may already notice the impact that stress can have on your blood sugar levels but this isn’t the only physical impact it has on our bodies, it can also have a negative affect on our immune systems. 

Listen to this weeks show to learn how stress can affect your bodies ability to fight off infections and viruses and most importantly what you can do to help to relieve that stress and stay healthy.
