Default Dr Ede: Nutrition Can Strengthen the Immune System to Fight COVID-19

Nutrition Can Strengthen the Immune System to Fight COVID-19

Dietary changes can help bolster your natural immunity against viruses.

  • Obesity, high blood pressure, and type two diabetes may raise the risk of hospitalization and death from COVID-19, research suggests.
  • Eating a whole foods diet and monitoring blood sugar may help maintain metabolic health.
  • Diet and metabolic health can strengthen the immune system to fight COVID-19 and other viral infections.

No diet can reduce your risk of catching COVID-19. Viruses can’t reproduce without you, so if they find you, they’re going in. However, we are not passive Petri dishes. The human body is armed with a sophisticated security system for identifying and eliminating intruders of all kinds. Therefore it is largely the health of your immune system that ultimately determines your fate. So, is there a diet that strengthens your immune system?

Some advocates of Mediterranean, vegan, and low-carb lifestyles claim that following their diet of choice can help you fight off COVID-19, but no diet has been scientifically tested against this virus.

Yet even with a grand total of zero dietary studies available thus far, it would be a mistake to conclude that diet doesn’t matter in a pandemic. In fact, a pandemic should motivate all of us to double down on dietary quality, because the majority of people who suffer serious consequences from COVID infections have something in common: poor metabolic health.

My reading in this area, and my own success in treating my own illness (one that baffles doctors and they regard -- like diabetes -- as an inevitable slide into painful death) has convinced me that most of our chronic illness comes from poor metabolic health.
