Carolinas Based Dr. Cheng on Better Health Equals Better Immunity

Jul 20, 2021 05:02PM ● By Richard Cheng

We can protect ourselves from viral infections, including COVID-19, with better overall health and a resilient immune system. The human race survived and thrived for millions of years before any antibiotics or vaccines were developed. The rapidly changing current environment, particularly the pollution of our food, water, air and personal health products, as well as unhealthy lifestyles, have weakened our health and thus our immunity.

In this fight against the pandemic we not only need to apply safe and effective vaccines and drugs, but focus more on strengthening our immune system and improving our health. In addition to a healthy lifestyle, many vitamins and nutrients are designed by Mother Nature to enhance our health and disease-fighting abilities. These include vitamins C and D, minerals such as zinc and antioxidants.
