With the world on high-alert due to the spread of COVID-19 and it's effects on the human respiratory system, it is the perfect time to cover some of the best natural methods of keeping your respiratory system healthy. This series of organs is responsible for taking in oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide, with the primary organ of this system being the lungs. They work with the circulatory system to pump oxygen-rich blood to all cells in the body. Oxygen is needed to sustain our bodies, and we rely on these systems, along with our lungs, to maintain our oxygen levels. For these reasons, a properly functioning respiratory system is essential for optimal human health.

Who doesn't love salt? It is a great way to kick the flavor up on just about any dish you are making. It complements other flavors in foods and gives you that salty satisfaction many of us are looking for. But what is salt and what is its purpose in the body? Salt contains an essential trace mineral known as sodium. Our bodies need sodium for several functions including contracting and relaxing muscles, maintaining proper fluid balance and preventing dehydration, sending nervous system impulses, and preventing low blood pressure. What is even more impressive is that recent research has suggested that eating salt can reduce the risk of infection and kill harmful bacteria. Another study done on animals has also shown that salt may have a positive effect on symptoms of depression. So salt can be a good thing, but does all salt stack up the same?

Our fight-or-flight response is a great example of how we have evolved to use stress as a way to react quickly in life-threatening scenarios. While stress can be beneficial in this form it can also be very damaging to our bodies and our health.
