Staying Healthy & Hydrated in Quarantine

It’s important to practice social distancing. But it’s also important to stay healthy during self-quarantine. Sometimes it feels like a balance we just can’t quite strike right. We’re here to help you get through this together with some exercise, eating well, and staying hydrated. 

EXERCISE, EXERCISE, AND MORE EXERCISE

Go outside and get some fresh air with a hike or walk. Grab your mat and enjoy yoga or pilates with the sights and sounds of nature. Biking is low impact and gets your heart pumping. Whatever motivates and inspires you is good enough. 

While gyms were open and now are closed, it doesn’t mean you have to stop exercising. It is a great time to continue staying active at home. You only need a desk chair and moderate hand weights (5-10 pounds). Can’t find weights or something heavy enough to suffice? Bodyweight movements are a great way to incorporate resistance in a pinch!

EATING DURING SELF-QUARANTINE

Right now, grocery stores are a war zone. It feels easy to buy snacks and processed foods right now since they have a longer shelf-life in order to buy yourself more time before your next trip. However, eating healthy during this pandemic is imperative. Ways to make this easier include planning your meals in advance and understanding what foods make your body feel best. 

It’s also a great idea to cook using Kangen water due to their awesome health benefits. We’ve talked about it before if you want to check it out

HYDRATING DURING SELF-QUARANTINE

While you may have endless amounts of tap water available to you, making sure you are cognizant of the water you drink in quarantine is essential to your health. Alkaline water is known for its benefits, and investing in an Enagic device can completely revolutionize your health and immune system

Alkaline water boosts your white blood cell count and also helps protect your body from unwanted invaders. In the unfortunate event that you get sick, it can also greatly impact your ability to recover and heal. Slow healing processes can be the result of an excess amount of toxic compounds in the body. This means it will have to work extra hard to maintain its biological functions. Alkaline water neutralises these toxic compounds present in the body. Moreover, alkaline water is more easily absorbed by the body. This allows your body to use the water you drink effectively, and toxins and harmful substances are flushed out of your system more easily.

Drinking alkaline water regularly can improve the performance of your circulatory system, as it alters the quality of blood in such a way that more oxygen is carried to vital organs. All benefits of alkaline water work in tandem to make the immune system stronger in order to fight foreign pathogens and infections.

We shake hands, hug, touch handrails that others touch, share living spaces, use public transportation, breathe the same air — all exposing us to viral infections, diseases, and other health threats. As we all know, we are sailing unchartered territories during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic and have taken extreme precautions to protect our health and the health of those around us. 

While exposure cannot be completely avoided, boosting the immune system is possible. A stronger immune function helps fight a lot of health threats.

How do we strengthen our immune system? The answer is simple, easy, and affordable. The answer is water. Water can work miracles for your body, especially for your immune system. It is a natural immunity booster which promotes health and well-being.

Through clean, nutrient-rich drinking water. You don’t need to break the bank for pricey health supplements or food products that don’t really promise nor do much. Instead, investing in an Enagic is a lifetime purchase that will pay for itself many times over. 

Benefits of Drinking Kangen Water

1. It Pumps Oxygen Around the Body the Best

The list of benefits you can get from drinking Kangen water is almost endless. We cannot emphasize enough how important they are.

Take the case of being in a weakened and sickly state. A simple drink of water refreshes you as it helps carry oxygen throughout the body — to organs, tissues, and blood cells.

It pumps up bodily functions to full capacity making you feel and perform better physically.

2. It Flushes Out Toxins and Free Radicals

Ionized water also promotes adaptive immune response by working to get rid of toxic foreign invaders from the body through the kidneys. It prevents toxin build-up which, in turn, boosts immune function! 

While we’re talking about getting rid of toxins from the body, we’re sure you’ve heard of lemon water and hot tea. These are great immediate solutions you can use to help boost your immune system. 

Lemon Water

Lemon squeezed in water is a good source of Vitamin C. It not only adds a citrus flavor to the drink but also:

  • Boosts the function of the immune system
  • Fights bacteria, viruses, and fungi that cause cold, flu, and infection
  • Keeps foreign substances away from cells
  • Helps prevent diseases
  • Aids in digestion

Hot Tea

Water boosted with the flavor of natural tea brews enhances the body’s immune response. It also supports cardiovascular and musculoskeletal health.

Warm tea, like lemon water, is also rich in antioxidants that promote detoxification from cancer-causing free radicals.

Free Radicals Definition: highly reactive molecules that pair with oxygen or peroxide through the process of oxidation to produce protein-damaging acids in the blood.

3. It Increases the Production of Lymph Fluid

Lymph fluid is the fluid that flows around the body to collect bacteria and waste. It transports all collected waste to the lymph nodes which serve as filters.

Drinking water works like a waterfall for lymphatic organs. The higher the amount, the stronger the push to the edge.

In this scenario, water pushes bodily waste into the lymph nodes where lymphocytes destroy them. Keeping them from impairing immune function and causing life-threatening conditions like leukemia.

Lymphocytes Definition: white blood cells in the immune system known to detect foreign antigens and produce antibodies to destroy them; has 3 main types: B cells, T cells, and natural killer cells.

4. It Cleanses Our Senses

Water works to cleanse the body as implied in the statements above.

For our sense organs, like the skin, eyes, and mouth, it maintains moisture on mucous membranes. A moist environment in these parts prevents infectious bacteria from penetrating the immune system.

Alongside maintaining a protective barrier, moisture brought about by water preserves organ elasticity and structure. You can bid dry skin goodbye by drinking water regularly.

Water fights off diseases and gets rid of dirt and germs on the skin’s surface and our surroundings when used for:

  • Handwashing
  • Cleaning surfaces
  • Washing the dishes
  • Flushing out nasal discharge during a cold or allergy
