“An amazing new discovery enables people to fight off viruses, bacteria and other disease causing germs.”
Sounds like a cheesy infomercial at 1 am in the morning doesn’t it?
Believe it or not, all of us have the ability to do just that.
When you exercise your body temperature rises due to the use of muscles. When you use enough muscles for long enough you actually produce enough heat to fight off pathogens! A pseudo fever is created that doesn’t make you feel bad and is actually beneficial. You also sweat which releases unwanted toxins too!
Your body temperature can get up to 103 degrees which can kill pathogens that want to harm us.
So get up off of your rump and start fighting illness with a little locomotion.
Note: This idea is courtesy of my Gross Anatomy class which gave me the idea when we were talking about muscles and heat production.
My education is paying off already!
