Likewise the information we are being given is also changing very quickly. Here is an update on what we doing within N8 to keep you safe as possible.

On some occasions our remedial therapists are using face masks if attending to our older clients who need remedial therapy to function and stay mobile.

The experts are continuing to reinforce that the health risks associated with Coronavirus are MUCH LESS likely for those amongst us with good health practices.
The good news for you is there are things that you can proactively do right now to create an environment in your body that is much more likely encourage an efficient immune response. That’s why people with strong healthy immune systems either can be asymptomatic or have very mild cold like symptoms.
To help your immune system be at it’s best here are some very basic and simple guidelines as recommended by the World Health Organisation:
• Eat great fresh wholefoods with minimal processing – mostly vegetables and fruit
• Ensure you are getting plenty of sleep
• Drink plenty of water
• Limit caffeine and alcohol
• Manage your stress (stress impacts the adrenal system which reduces immune system-this might mean turning off the media for a while).
• Have a little sunshine on exposed skin every day
• Exercise everyday, a 30 minute walk is wonderful
These are all simple strategies that have been shown to boost immune systems and improve your body’s ability to either prevent or cope with sickness.
Remember you’re more in control of your health than you may realise.
