We are all learning a collective lesson as a whole right now in just how important your immune system is to your health and wellbeing.
During this pandemic, immunity is a major topic of conversation and focus. If you have it, and what you can do to build it if you don’t already have a strong immune system. Here are our tips for immune boosting that you can do all year long to live a more productive and healthy life.
Immune Boosting Tips
Minimize Stress! – Stress is the number one thing that breaks down immunity. Eliminate and minimize as much as you can.
If you smoke, work on quitting. Smoking breaks down your immune system and makes you less healthy overall.
Exercise regularly. Movement, stretching, weight barring exercise and cardiovascular exercise are needed to keep every system in the body in working order.
Get enough rest. Sleeping 7-9 hours a night is when your body repairs itself. No sleep = no repair. Eventually, you will overtax your system and it can break down.
Have good hygiene. Wash your hands frequently, keep them away from your face, eyes, mouth, ears, and nose.
If you must drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Alcohol is dehydrating and toxic to the body. Your liver has to work hard to process it and takes energy away from other repairs.
Maintain a healthy weight. Carrying around excess weight makes every organ in the body work harder than it should have to.
Cook all meats thoroughly. This goes for seafood as well. Undercooked meats and seafood can lead to food poisoning and nothing smacks the body down like a round of food poisoning. Wash down counters and surfaces that raw items have touched.
Eat well – We are what we eat. Fresh fruits, vegetables, healthy proteins, healthy fats, limiting processed foods and sugars, all contribute to health and wellness.
Visit your chiropractor regularly – getting adjusted to eliminate subluxations gives a major boost to your nervous system which controls every part of your body. Keep it working well and your health will follow!
