Improve your Immunity Naturally
Updated: Sep 29
Want to learn how to improve your immunity naturally? “Tis the season for colds and flu. I have five tips to keep yourself healthy long term. While most of them will be things you have already heard, the question is, “do you follow the advice?”
#1- Research shows that the people who consistently get between 7-8 hours of sleep have stronger immune systems and are sick less. Going to bed and waking up at the same time each day will help you get a longer, better, less interrupted night’s sleep.
#2- Eat veggies and fruits, not sugary processed snacks. Vitamins, minerals and micronutrients in your food are what sustain your body and keep it healthy. What you eat becomes the building blocks of your cells. Literally, “you are what you eat”. Research has shown over and over again that sugar attacks your immune system and shuts its protective abilities down.
#3 Exercise- 30 minutes of exercise a day eliminates waste products from your body, allows it to work more efficiently, gets your blood pumping and again improves your immunity.
#4 Regular Chiropractic adjustments- It has been documented that people who receive regular chiropractic adjustments report being sick less often. In my personal experience, I have seen this in my office regularly with those who have chronic sinus infections.
#5- Drink plenty of water. Multiply your weight by 67% and add more when you are active. (i.e. every time you work out) This will also help filter the waste products out of your body.
Hopefully these tips have been helpful and if you follow them odds are that you will be much healthier this winter. Cheers to a strong immune system in 2015!
