Corona. Covid-19. Pandemic. Rt numbers. Flatten the curve. Socially distance. Self-isolate. Quarantine. Super Spreader.
New words. New reality. New world. And now, more than ever before, we depend on our immune systems to see us through. There is no vaccine. There is no approved course of treatment. So it is up to us. Each one of us.
It is our responsibility to ensure that our immune systems are functioning at an optimal level in order to protect ourselves, our family, our friends and our community from this sickness. This dis-ease is no match for an optimally functioning immune system.
But what does that mean? What is an optimally functioning immune system after all? And how can each one of us ensure that we have one?
This Covid-19 pandemic has once more brought to light the plethora of benefits our bodies reap from a WFPB diet. Dr. T. Colin Campbell has published at two part series entitled Our Most Important Defense Against COVID-19 on plantpurecommunities.org.
"Here is the hopeful – even revolutionary – idea. People can defend themselves against the worst effects of the COVID-19 infection, and help flatten the curve of hospitalizations, by strengthening their immune systems through their food choices."
- Dr. Campbell
Part one is entitled Finding Hope Through Scientific Evidence and is an empowering piece that reminds us all that we are in control of our health and we have the ability to make optimal choices. In part two, The Path to Recovery through Nutrition, Dr. Campbell guides us through a bit of the science that shows the key role our immune systems play at this time and how we can boost them with whole, plant-based nutrition.
