About the Topic

Not getting enough sleep has been linked to a laundry list of mental and physical health problems, including an impaired immune system. In fact, a study published in February 2019 found a mechanism linking sleep and the immune system. While at the same time, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention concluded in 2016 that more than one-third of Americans weren’t getting enough sleep.

The long and short of it is that sleep deprivation and poor sleep quality can have a negative effect on your immune system. 

In this interactive Q+A event, Coach Jaime will discuss the effects of sleep and stress on the immune system, and how to apply sleep hygiene tips from creating a healthy sleeping environment to setting nightly routines.

Strong Immunity September

Autumn traditionally brings an uptick in airborne illnesses, from the common cold to the start of annual flu season. And, for the first time, we are waiting to see how the coronavirus reacts to the change of season.

That’s why we’re making September all about strengthening your immune system to help you fight off whatever you might pick up. Throughout the month, PartnerMD's certified health coaches will arm you with the information you need to maximize your resilience against cold, flu, and COVID-19.

Topics include:

  • Nutrient Dense Food to fuel your body and optimize your gut biome
  • Food Frequency to encourage the regeneration of newer, healthier cells
  • Sleep Quality to improve mental health and body function
  • Stress Management to regulate mood and hormones
  • Movement to boost circulation, flush bacteria from the airways, and strengthen antibodies and white blood cells
  • Sun & Supplements to boost levels of illness-fighting vitamins B, C, and D
