Dr. Corinne: Natural Tips On Staying Healthy during COVID-19 Outbreak

Dr. Corinne Weaver : Mar 27, 2020

"Laughing can decrease stress hormones and boost the immune system," Malloy says. Try watching a funny movie, reading a funny book, or even forcing yourself to laugh. "Laughter is contagious, and it's not always dependent on humor."

Are you wondering how to stay healthy during the Coronavirus? I created a plan just for you. The Healthy Living COVID-19 program is a 30-day plan that includes daily healthy recipes, stress reducing exercise videos to reduce anxiety, daily recommendations to protect yourself from the coronavirus, stretching routines, and updates as well as tips from the CDC and WHO. You can receive this plan for free Click Here.

I want to make sure you feel protected and taken care of during this season and unusual time. Healthy eating and taking vitamins help to increase your immune system. Deep breathing and eating right are key practices during a lot of change economically, emotionally and even physically. There are daily steps you can take right now to ward off COVID-19. This program will guide you through it.

Most people are aware that chiropractic care focuses particularly on the spine's alignment to relieve pain and improve function to allow the body to heal itself. However, fewer people are aware that chiropractic treatment can also address musculoskeletal pain, headaches, asthma, thyroid issues, carpal tunnel syndrome, and even fibromyalgia. Perhaps most excitingly, a wide variety of treatments chiropractors provide can also enhance your immune system!

We strongly believe in a "Do No Harm" approach to treatment and support a healthy lifestyle and natural supplement options.

Immunity can become overwhelmed by inflammation. In fact, the stronger your immune system is, the better able you are to withstand and fight off inflammation. Being that Immunity and inflammation are intertwined so tightly, we commonly look at inflammation when we look at immunity.

When inflammation becomes accelerated and reaches the chronic stages, you have a steady progression towards a shorter lifespan and prolonged illness. Not only is your life shortened, but the quality of that life is also negatively impacted. Obesity, toxicity, and poor dietary and lifestyle habits all contribute to the action and reaction phases of our immune system.

Too much, too little, or the wrong immune response may cause immune system disorders or diseases to develop. (An overactive immune response can lead to the development of autoimmune diseases, in which antibodies form against the body's own tissues!)

There can be a downward spiral once inflammation sets in and the immune system can no longer protect your body. Let's look at how the immune system works.

Our immune system is essential for our survival. Without an immune system, our bodies would be open to attack from bacteria, viruses, parasites, and more. It is our immune system that keeps us healthy as we drift through a world of pathogens.

Our vast network of cells and tissues is constantly on the lookout for invaders, and once an enemy is spotted, a complex attack is mounted. The immune system is spread throughout the body and involves many types of cells, organs, proteins, and tissues and can distinguish our tissue from foreign tissue—self from non-self. Dead and faulty cells are also recognized and cleared away by the immune system.

Following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take towards keeping your immune system strong and healthy. Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected from environmental assaults and is bolstered by healthy-living strategies such as:

- Thoroughly washing hands

- Avoiding smoking

- Controlling your blood pressure

- Exercising regularly

- Cooking meats thoroughly

- Watching your diet

- Do not drink alcohol

- Getting adequate sleep

- Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables.

- Try to minimize stress. (This is one we can't forget)

Immunodeficiencies arise when one or more parts of the immune system do not function. Immunodeficiencies can be caused in a number of ways, including age, obesity, and alcoholism. In developing countries, malnutrition is also a common cause. AIDS is an example of an acquired immunodeficiency.

In autoimmune conditions, the immune system mistakenly targets healthy cells, rather than foreign pathogens or faulty cells. In this scenario, they cannot distinguish self from non-self. Autoimmune diseases include celiac disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and Graves' disease.

With hypersensitivity, the immune system overreacts in a way that damages healthy tissue. An example is when the body responds to an allergen so strongly that it can be life-threatening (known as anaphylactic shock).

Acute inflammation occurs in the early stages of an immune response. This happens when the body sends out alarm signals which produce a series of temporary symptoms.

Chronic inflammation occurs when the body has been struggling for a long period of time to protect itself and simply cannot do it. It's fighting a losing battle and gives up. Our inflammatory processes work against our body sometimes resulting in tissue damage. Did you know that chronic inflammation is the main factor in heart disease, obesity, type 2 diabetes, dementia, Alzheimer's, chronic fatigue, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic bronchitis, and many others?

There may or may not be signs of disease which is why we always approach with care and an open mind (and recommend you do the same).

Chiropractic's goal is to regain your biological, nutritional, psychological, social, and spiritual health naturally.

We are all unique with our own individual challenges, but by working together, we can bring these aspects of our lives into focus and balance.

In the development of an immunity care plan, chiropractic support looks to scientific study and often partners with physicians. We rely on current research to devise and formulate a custom plan to live a healthy life and improve your immune system.

Multiple studies indicate interventions that suppress, prevent, or alter the dynamics of chronic inflammation and hold great promise for treating or preventing failures of the immune system. These include diet, exercise, and deep breathing activities.

In brief, any amount of activity that you can do today that you didn't do yesterday is most likely good for you. In almost all cases, more is better, and more intense is best.

REGULAR exercise (including walking) improves your mood, boosts your ability to fend off infection, and lowers your risk for heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and colon cancer. The key is to start and maintain an exercise program that suits your abilities and lifestyle. For many, this begins with walking.

According to a study done at Appalachian State University in North Carolina, a moderately-paced walk for about 30 to 45 minutes daily can increase the number of immune system cells in your body and can have a remarkable effect on your body's ability to fight disease. To be more specific, walking at least 20 minutes a day could reduce the risk of getting sick by almost 43%! Wow…let's go on a walk!!

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that adults engage in 150 minutes of moderate activity a week, such as brisk walking. (To meet the CDC's recommendation, you would only need to walk about 7,000 to 8,000 steps a day.) Moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity requires only 75 minutes per week. The guidelines also recommend that children and adolescents be active for at least 60 minutes every day.

One study found that women who increased their step count to nearly 10,000 steps a day reduced their blood pressure after 24 weeks. Another study of overweight women found that walking 10,000 steps a day improved their glucose levels.

Walking briskly for 30 minutes will burn roughly 200 calories.

Walking 10,000 steps equates to about five miles a day, which is quite an increase for those who sit at a desk all day. It comes out to about 90 active minutes a day, which is three times the amount recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Walking for 2.5 hours a week—that's just 21 minutes a day—can cut your risk of heart disease by 30%! A University of Utah study in 2014 found that for every minute of brisk walking that women did throughout the day, they lowered their risk of obesity by 5%!

How does walking for 21 minutes a day sound to you? You can walk and still perform social distancing.

Limiting your alcohol intake is also important, especially when taking certain medications. Discuss your options with your doctor, especially if you're taking methotrexate or other medications that may have interaction.

Protect your immune system by not triggering the causes of inflammation in your life.

If you are closing in on 60 (or find yourself over 60), it is important to understand that your immune system is not as robust as it was when you were younger. To compensate for a declining immune system, it is important to apply healthy living choices as soon as possible.

It has been well established that people who are malnourished are more vulnerable to infectious diseases.

Another group of individuals who are susceptible to micronutrient malnutrition is the elderly. This is because older people tend to eat less and often have less variety in their diets.

Micronutrient deficiencies—for example, deficiencies of zinc, selenium, iron, copper, folic acid, and vitamins A, B6, C, and E—may alter immune responses.

If you suspect your diet is not providing you with all your micronutrient needs, taking a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement may help increase the power of your immune system.

We believe the best way to approach stress is from a broad spectrum. Learn how to enhance your stress resilience and build tools that you can use to restore your life to a balanced center.

Maybe these ideas will help:


Practicing certain deep breathing techniques counter stress by eliciting the relaxation response, which helps lower blood pressure, heart rate, breathing rate, oxygen consumption, and stress hormones.


See the upside rather than the downside of a predicament. For example, if you're sad that your grown child isn't calling as often as you'd like, try instead to be proud and happy that you helped your child become an independent adult.


Friends and family are important to stress buffers. "You can cope better if you have people you can share your stressors with or people to help you."


When you're stressed, it's easy to think about what's wrong. "We'll have people focus on three things that are going well, or three things they're grateful for each day," Malloy says. "It could be as simple as enjoying a cup of coffee or having a nice chat on the phone."


"Laughing can decrease stress hormones and boost the immune system," Malloy says. Try watching a funny movie, reading a funny book, or even forcing yourself to laugh. "Laughter is contagious, and it's not always dependent on humor."


Do not be optimistic when it is not realistic. That will lead to disappointed. Try to be objective and come to a realistic assessment of your situation and be optimistic if it is appropriate.


"Think of a positive outcome, not a negative one. Consider an upcoming situation and visualize the positive qualities you want to bring to it."

My mission is to help you get healthier without needing more medications. If you or someone you know needs help, make sure you reach out. Let's continue to share Hope in this world and get on our knees to pray to our Heavenly Father. God Bless!! Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here

Keep Breathing,
Dr. Corinne Weaver 


Dr. Corinne Weaver is a compassionate upper cervical chiropractor, educator, motivational speaker, mother of three, and internationally bestselling author. In 2004, she founded the Upper Cervical Wellness Center in Indian Trail, North Carolina. Over the last 13 years, she has helped thousands of clients restore their brain to-body function. When she was 10 years old, she lost her own health as the result of a bike accident that led to having asthma and allergy issues that she thought she would always have to endure. Then, after her first upper cervical adjustment at age 21, her health began to improve thanks to upper cervical care and natural herbal remedies. This enabled her to create a drug-free wellness lifestyle for herself and her family, and she also enthusiastically discovered her calling to help children heal naturally.

Dr. Weaver was named one of Charlotte Magazine's "Top Doctors" in 2016 and is now a number-one internationally bestselling author to two books: Learning How to Breathe and No More Meds. 

Upper Cervical Wellness Center is known for finding the root cause of health concerns through lifestyle changes, diagnostic testing, nutraceutical supplementation, and correction of subluxation (as opposed to just medicating the symptoms). The practice offers cutting-edge technological care at its state-of-the-art facility, including laser-aligned upper cervical X-rays, bioimpedance analysis (measures body composition), digital thermography (locates thermal abnormalities characterized by skin inflammation), and complete nutritional blood analysis, which is focused on disease prevention.
