Stay at home and boost your immune system – and we will get over this

Published by Alsad Medical on

Our immune system is the key to good health in fight against Covid19.

Therefore, you need to give your immune system some extra attention – no matter if you are generally health or if you have a chronic condition (which makes you extremely vulnerable if you get infected by coronavirus). Stay healthy during the days of lockdown.

A few lifestyle changes and new habits can naturally keep your immune system strong and healthy:

  • Wash yourhands (importance of this was discovered by a Hungarian doctor Ignaz Semmelweis)
  • Eat a balanced diet (Maintain a healthy weight)
  • Exercise regularly (measure with smartwatch, tracker).
  • Get enough sleep (measure with smartwatch, tracker)
  • Don’t smoke (protect your lungs in any possible ways)
  • Try to minimize stress (measure with smartwatch)

How can ALSAD help you in these routines?

…and last but not least: please, stay at home if you can, bear with social distancing for a while, especially if you have a particular health condition to manage, conditions like diabetes, kidney failure or respiratory problems. People with these conditions are particularly vulnerable and therefore need to be extra cautious for a while.

Digital health solutions can give you support otherwise doctors and dietetians can give during a personal meeting – going virtual can protect both patients and medical professionals – their role is more important than ever and need to focus on emergency cases.
