Building a Health Defense

A healthy immune system provides multiple response layers against seasonal changes. The strength of this barrier can be weakened by lifestyle habits that can deplete the body’s reserves, such as stress, fast foods, and lack of exercise. Replenishing nutrients essential to healthy immune function can help, as well as ensuring adequate rest and relaxation.

Enroll in the Building a Health Defense Workshop on the HarbinSTRONG portal. During this three-week workshop, you will learn to develop habits to build a healthy immune system to help fight off illness.

Going apple picking in Georgia is one of those fall traditions you just can’t miss! This year, with COVID-19 precautions, it might look a little different, but the thrill of eating a juicy, crisp apple just picked off the tree will be just as delightful as ever.

Plan a trip to an orchard for a taste of fall combined with plenty of family fun. Be sure to review the orchards’ websites and social media pages before your trip so you can be fully prepared for your visit.
