Learn how you can protect yourself when in community from viruses and bugs by building a strong immune system. Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when strengthened by healthy living. Below are a few things you can do to build your immune system!
Eat Your Veggies, Baby!
Eating a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains helps strengthens your immune system. Some natural immune boosters are found in certain foods. Eating ginger, for instance, breaks down the accumulation of toxins in the organs. Japanese mushrooms are high in antioxidants which help fight impurities in body. Avocados support the adrenal function and keep your immune system happy. So, eat your vegetables and strengthen your body’s ability to fight sickness!
Just like a healthy diet, regular exercise contributes in a huge way to boosting your immune system. By exercising regularly, you are promoting good circulation, which allows the cells of the immune system to move freely and work effectively. Working out consistently can actually keep you out of the doctor’s office!
Get Sleep and Stress Less!
The Harvard Medical School conducted a study and found that getting adequate sleep helps keep a strong immune system. Along with sleep, researchers have found that stress is closely related to a weakened immune system. Ohio State has been researching a while in this field and their research team suggests that psychological stress affects the immune system by disrupting communication between the nervous system, the endocrine system, and immune system. By keeping your stress to a minimum you are keeping yourself out of the sick bed!
