Boost Your Immune System Naturally

Now more than ever it's important to care about how your immune system works and what you can do to boost immunity from colds and viruses. With "sick season" right around the corner you can protect yourself and your family from getting sick and having to miss work and school.

So How Does Our Immune System Work?

Your immune system has a BIG job, and that's keeping you healthy! Made from organs, cells & proteins your immune system is working overtime right now to protect your body from harmful substances, germs, and cell changes that could make you ill. The immune system is activated by bacteria, fungi, and viruses that it doesn't recognize should be there. When you come in contact with these things antigens attach to special receptors on the immune cells. If the body is coming into contact with a virus for the first time it stores information about the virus and how to fight it. If you come into a virus or germ that it's seen before your immune system starts to fight is straight away. Your body develops antibodies to protect you from those specific germs.

The main parts of the immune system are:

  • White blood cells

  • Lymph nodes

  • Spleen

  • Tonsils and adenoids

  • Thymus

  • Bone marrow

  • Stomach and bowel

How To Boost Your Immune System Naturally

For your immune system to function naturally it requires all entities to be balanced and healthy. Your lifestyle can have a huge effect on how well your body fights off germs & viruses. Here are a few tips to help lessen your chances of getting sick this year:

Maintain a healthy diet

As with many other things in your body diet plays a huge role in regulating your immune system. Whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts & seeds are rich in nutrients and antioxidants that give you an upper hand against fighting harmful pathogens. Those antioxidants help to decrease inflammation in the body and give your immune system a better chance of fighting off viruses.

Manage your stress levels

When you're stressed your body is working in overdrive by producing a stress response. This stress response actually suppresses your immune system and weakens it over time. Stress levels are different for everyone and regardless of how you de-stress it's a good idea to not keep the body under stress for long periods of time. You can try deep breathing, meditation or hey even a little retail therapy never hurts anyone.

Get Your Workouts In

While you want to avoid prolonged and intense workouts as this can actually worsen the immune system. A daily moderate exercise regimen can reduce inflammation and help your immune cells regenerate regularly. Just like eating healthy, exercise contributes to overall healthy wellbeing therefore to a healthy immune system.

Get Quality Sleep

When you rest it gives your body and immune system time to re-group and work optimally. Lack of sleep also triggers stress response so set a good sleep schedule and stick to it to help strengthen your immune system.

Get an IV Drip

An IV session is packed with vitamins and nutrients your body needs to function at its most optimum state. Get a customized IV that works to boost your immunity.

Check Your Hormone Levels

Hormone imbalance often leads to a variety of ailments including decreased immunity. As we age our immune system naturally slows down, so it's important to check your hormone levels to make sure your body is functioning properly.
