Hi Everyone – I’m Andy and I’m Sandra.  Welcome to our second session in our 4-part series of addressing ‘What Makes Us More Vulnerable to Illness’.  Last time we looked at what we eat, and discussed how to optimize the foods we choose in our diet to help us achieve optimal wellness.  Today we are looking at sleep.  And through decades of studying it, researchers claim that getting sufficient rest is a critical piece of the long-life puzzle, and in playing a pivotal role in people getting ill.

 

First, let’s have some fun with numbers…

How about two hundred and twenty-five thousand?  Well, that’s the number of...

What Makes us More Vulnerable to Illness - Part 1 Food

 

This is Andy, and my colleague Sandra and I want to introduce you to a great collaborative initiative between The Foco Academy and Full Functional Wellness. 

We are both functional nutritional specialists and focus on helping people rebalance and regain their health using the principles of functional medicine to uncover the factors behind people becoming ill. 

Together, we have created a 4-part series that addresses The Factors that Make Us More Vulnerable to Illness.  The theme for this series is particularly important and timely, given the realities of the pandemic.  It’s also particularly valuable as people are taking stock of their health and wondering how they can help themselves and their families to stay well and minimize their risk of becoming ill.

 

Throughout our discussion today, Sandra and I will be sharing information with you.  As we kick this series off, it’s important to put some context around the whole issue of being...

It’s been 3 months since the lockdown.

Most of us are asked to stay at home and don’t come out unless we have to. And that’s a shock because, before that, we were going at 100 miles an hour, chasing that job promotion or trying to make more money or meet our goals.

 All of a sudden. We come to a full stop. We turn off our engine. We are no longer chasing that goal or money or fame or whatever. Those instagram-worthy pictures are no longer necessary. There are no more ‘stories’ on Facebook that we must follow.

 

Sure, this pandemic has caused a lot of losses, in lives, in money, in jobs. But it gives most of us ONE thing that we all wanted, and...

Many of you may have had your DNA test done so that you can understand more about your genealogy and your ancestry data. What these tests and data doesn’t tell you, is the lifestyle that your ancestors had, the foods they ate, their activity levels, etc. But here’s what we do know.

 

Our ancestors, during the hunter gatherer days, they didn’t eat regular meals like we do. They did intermittent fasting and sometimes maybe even extended fasting. Here’s how their typical day went.

 

Sun comes up. The men gather their weapons and start walking out to hunt for food. The women would stay behind and take care of the family. On a good day, the men were able to...

We started releasing our ‘Boost your Immunity’ blog series in response to the Covid-19 Coronavirus. So, what do we think are important for boosting your immune system?

 

Know Your Numbers

First thing is to know your numbers. We started off by talking about metabolic efficiency and how it is important to track your health numbers and what your optimal numbers should look like.

Never in our lives were we more concerned about our health. And that is, of course, thanks to the COVID-19. The virus is of course highly contagious and fatal but it has also raised our awareness of just how important it is to keep our immunity systems strong.

When it comes to the viruses, our best chance of survival is not about how much money we have, how powerful we are, or how influential we may be. The only thing that matters is our health.

If there’s one good thing that comes out as a result of the COVID-19, I would say it is the increased awareness of how our health affects not only us, but our relationships, our lifestyles, and our economy.

'Shelter In Place' Order

 

Talking about Health. Unless youve been living under a rock, chances are that you have at least heard about the CORONAVIRUS or COVID-19. And most likely, your life has somehow been impacted by this latest strain of the coronavirus. For us, we’re on to day 4 of our ‘Shelter In Place order’ which basically means we’re supposed to stay at home all day.

That’s not a question. WHO is the World Health Organization. Many people are getting sick from this virus every single day.

The last official count from China as of today is 20671 cases worldwide spread over 27 countries. Researchers in Hong Kong estimates that the true number infected can be over 75,000 people.
