Medical studies have made it clear that many diseases – and here we do not only mean infection with the coronavirus – can be avoided, alleviated or shortened by appropriate preventive measures. With the scientifically and medically based CORONA PREVENT Program and the associated lifestyle modifications, you can make yourself significantly more resistant to a severe course of infection. The aim of the CORONA PREVENT Program is to strengthen your own body against the risk of infection, improve your immune system and promote long-term health.
How can athletes protect themselves against COVID-19?
The immune system is causally controlled by the autonomous nervous system (ANS) and is therefore dependent on it in its function. Thus all processes that change or deteriorate the ANS have a direct effect on the immune system.
In sports, not only the ANS but also the immune system is challenged by the training load. If the training load is high or too high, this can lead to a limitation of the regulatory capacity of the ANS and consequently to a deficiency in the resistance of the immune system to viral diseases such as COVID-19. Therefore it is important to get an insight into the current health status and thus to adapt the training load to the individual’s regulatory capacity.
