Boosting Your Immune System During a Pandemic

Boosting Immunity

The immune system is responsible for keeping you healthy and fighting illness. It is important to have healthy immunity and is even more vital in the midst of a Pandemic. There are several ways to boost the immune system and they can all be done naturally. 

1. Get regular Chiropractic adjustments

The nervous system and the immune system are directly related. When the nervous system is functioning optimally, it allows the immune system to work at peak performance. 

The spine houses the nervous system, so any dysfunction or pain in your spine can interfere with immunity. This is why it is important to get your spine checked regularly by a Chiropractor.

2. Get an adequate amount of sleep

Sleep is vital and allows the body to rest and recover. Sleep also prepares the immune system to fight another day, so it is important to give your body the rest it needs. Be sure to make a schedule and ensure you are getting the proper amount of sleep each night.

 

3. Eat a healthy diet

It's no secret that eating healthy foods can make you healthier overall. This is an important foundation when trying to build a healthy immune system. Eat more whole foods to give your body the nutrients it needs to fight illness and disease. Healthy foods include fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, nuts, seeds and legumes. Cutting down on sugar intake and staying hydrated will also propel your immunity to new levels.

 

4. Exercise regularly

Take a brisk walk through the park or go for a swim. Regular exercise doesn't mean you need to immediately start training for the next marathon. The best exercise is the one you're actually going to do. So pick your favorite form of exercise and enjoy!

 

5. De-stress

It's stressful enough to go through a Pandemic, so go easy on yourself. Make time for things you enjoy and try to take your mind off of stressful thoughts. Try practicing meditation or mindfullness. Taking a warm bath or pampering yourself are also ways to minimize stress. Whatever activity you choose, do it with the intent of relieving stress and your immune system will thank you.
