Reclaim your Power: Build a Healthy Immune System

During the COVID-19 pandemic, I have spent a significant amount of time thinking about how to build a healthy immune system for everyone in my family.

I recently found an article from Plant Based News out of London that provided an excellent and easy list that I’ve paraphrased here:

  1. Eat a plant based diet—at our house we call it a Plant Strong diet because not everyone is all in (basically, eat your veggies folks).
  2. Exercise—30 minutes of purposeful exercise per day that elevates your heart rate
  3. Sleep—at least 8 hours per day
  4. Manage stress—meditate, read or do yoga daily
  5. Community—maintain healthy relationships with family and friends
  6. Avoid smoking and drugs

While anxiety is on the rise, it’s important to understand we can begin to take back our power related to the pandemic by focusing on healthy and permanent lifestyle changes.  This is always important, however, very important as we are watching cases of COVID-19 rise.  While you may not have complete control over whether or not you get the virus, living a healthy lifestyle will give you the best chance at fighting off and surviving the illness.

Use the pandemic as your opportunity to quit smoking—check with your insurance company or local doctor to learn about what help may be available to you—embrace an exercise habit; or read that book that’s been collecting dust on your nightstand.  Most of all, do not mistake physical distancing for social distancing.  We need our social connections to thrive.  Staying six feet apart does not mean we should be disconnected from family and friends.

In a time when you may be struggling to cope with your concerns for your own health and welfare as well as that of those you love, take a moment to check in with yourself and use this brief list to take back your power by improving your personal health and immunity.

Hi there.
We're Radiant Health.

On January 19th, 2023 Grant Blackford Mental Health, Inc. and Family Service Society, Inc. merged to create a bigger, better, and brighter mental health organization called Radiant Health.

We’re excited for you to meet the new us, and to get a chance to help work together on the new you.

How we help.

When you’re in the middle of it, addiction can feel like a dead-end road. We know for certain that it isn’t. Just like any mental health challenge, addiction is an obstacle on our path. And, with some innovation and hardwork, we can work our way around it. On the other side of that obstacle is a bright future with healthy relationships, purpose-driven life, and a profound joy that’s been missing for all too long.

What do we mean?

Like so many things, mental health is passed down through families. Through behaviors, mirroring, and conditioning, we learn so much of what we know from those closest to us. Oftentimes that’s for the better, sometimes it’s not. At Radiant Health, we’re here to help ensure that your family makes purpose and joy as hereditary as any trait you might pass down to future generations. With a bit of hard word, together, we can make joy run in your family. 

What is Better?

Better ≠ perfect. Better means a path of continuous improvement; of evolution. When we focus on getting 1% better, 1% brighter every single day., we’re able to see the joy in the moment, while feeling the pride that comes with taking the reins over your life and working hard on yourself.  Here at Radiant, to focus on your future, we move towards it one achievable step at a time. 

What is Better Care?

When we talk about “brighter, better care” through our specialized services it boils down to 3 simple ideas. First, better care is safer care. Our facilities and staff are trained and equipped to offer safe, secure facilities during any stay. Second, better care is a respect for dignity. We believe in the dignity of every human being and we treat each person with the same level of respect. Finally, better care is the pursuit of purpose. Our treatment is designed with the firm belief that every person has purpose and, through it, finds joy.

What to Expect?

At Radiant Health you can expect a warmth and cheer that are rare in the mental health space. We believe firmly that the commitment to mental health is a commitment to finding purpose, but also discovering joy in the pursuit of it. Walking through our doors is a simple and transparent process. You’ll begin with an initial consultation with our expert staff, developing a blueprint, and taking that first step towards incremental improvement.
