Exercises from the specialist to strengthen immunity
Stating that the immune system is impaired due to being inactive during the pandemic process, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Haluk Saçaklı said, “Not exercising increases the negative factors of coronavirus in the body.”
“CORONAVIRUS DESTROYING OUR LUNGS MOSTLY”
In addition, Haluk Saçaklı stated that intensive exercises also increase stress hormones and prepare the ground for the weakening of the immune system and added: “Walk for 3 to 5 days a week, and resistance training for 2 or 3 days a week. With the exercise applied, we will put a lot of oxygen into the body. The coronavirus is destroying our lungs the most. The more oxygen is introduced into the lungs, the stronger the immune system is.
“THE RIGHT BREATHING IS DIAPHRAGM BREATH”
Noting that breathing from the abdomen should be made a part of life, Saçaklı said: “If we breathe through the chest, we will inhale very little oxygen. When we do not exhale deeply, we cannot expel carbon dioxide. For correct breathing, we first need to fill our abdomen with air in 4 seconds, and by pushing that air towards the chest, we must feel the breath in the throat for 2 seconds and provide oxygen distribution to all cells. When our citizens wake up every morning, they should open their windows and take 10 diaphragm breaths. They improve their lung capacity. By strengthening the immune system in this way, they also increase their resistance against coronavirus.”
“SLEEP BETWEEN 22.00-03.00 ENABLES THE BODY TO REGENERATE ITSELF”
Emphasizing that good and quality sleep is very important, Haluk Saçaklı continued his words as follows: “All maintenance and repair of our body is done during sleep between 22:00 and 03:00. If you stay on the internet until late at night, your immune system will collapse. We will go to bed between 22.00-24.00 and get up at 05.00-07.00. Our genetic code is set accordingly. Also, smoking slows down antibody formation. If smoking is not quitted, the risk of getting coronavirus increases and it causes an increase in death rates.”
