Some of the most effective ways to strengthen your immune system naturally are through relaxation, exercise, eating balanced healthy meals and wise use of nutritional supplements.
Our level of health and vitality is an indication of the health of our immune system. When it is functioning at an optimal level, the immune system can respond to challenges in proportion to whatever threat is present, without under nor overreacting.
It is well known that excess stress is a major factor with health problems, including a weak immune system. Meditation or biofeedback are two relaxation training options that can help you learn to release excess stress before it builds up and becomes a problem.
Also, excess stress can be effectively released through some type of consistent, regular exercise, and finding a type of exercise that you enjoy and look forward to will have benefits that carry over into other areas of your life.
The oldest healing traditions in the world place a lot of importance on diet and digestive health. Poor digestion is a problem for many people and can often lead to poor health as well, so it’s an issue people should take seriously
10 ways To strengthen Your immune system
Exercising helps to circulate lymph fluid, white blood cells that fight disease-causing pathogens.
2) Take a Multi-Vitamin
“The alarming fact is that foods (fruits, vegetables, and grains) now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contain enough of certain minerals are starving us – no matter how much of them we eat. No man today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his (or her) system with the minerals he requires for perfect health because his stomach isn’t big enough to hold them … The truth is that our foods vary enormously in value, and some them aren’t worth eating as food … Our physical wellbeing is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than on calories or vitamins or upon the precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume.”
The preceding quote is from senate Document 264, dated 1936.
3) Use Organic cleaners
Regular household cleaners contain toxic chemicals that harm the immune and respiratory systems. It is a common misconception that spraying everything with disinfectant is healthy–on the contrary, if the chemicals will kill germs, think about what they do to our own immune systems (especially pets and children, who are both smaller and closer to the surfaces). The best way to avoid becoming ill from bacterial contact is to strengthen our resistance against it.
4) Switch Personal care Products
Most hair care and skin care products contain harmful ingredients that are soaked right into the skin. Find some that contain all-natural ingredients, and don’t be misled by fancy advertising.
5) Keep Houseplants
Plants help to filter toxins out of the air and replace them with oxygen.
6) Get 8 Hours a Night
Deep sleep allows the release of the growth hormone. This aids in efficient absorption of nutrients and amino acids, as well as stimulation of the bone marrow (where immune cells are “born”).
7) Cut Sugar
One hundred grams of sugar can reduce the white blood cell’s ability to kill germs by 40% for 5 hours.
8) Get Plenty of Fresh Air
“Understanding indoor air as I do, it is my contention that our immune systems are being compromised . . . from being ‘overwhelmed by polluted indoor environments which are loaded with airborne contaminants.”
(Dan schilling, Building Inspector and Indoor Air specialist)
9) Avoid Antibiotics if Possible
Antibiotics override and disable the body’s immune system.
10) Drink More Water
Dehydration leads to excess body fat (yes, drinking water helps promote weight loss), joint pain, increased toxicity, and decreased nutrient absorption. Be sure to avoid dehydrating beverages, such as coffee and soda.
