    Share

    The Immune system is made up of cells, tissues, and organs to protect the body against infections and maintain overall health. Natural ways of boosting your immune system is a better choice. We’ve listed natural remedies for you to boost your immune system

    Below is an excerpt of an article that shares the natural ways you can try at home for your Immune System.

    Avoid Simple Sugars

    Too much sugar consumption greatly suppresses the cells in the immune system that are responsible for identifying and attacking harmful bacteria.

    Even as little as 75 – 100 grams of sugar (equivalent to two – 12 oz cans of soda) can reduce the white blood cells ability to overcome and ultimately destroy bad bacteria.

    Brewed teas, natural fruit juices, and especially fresh water will all help the immune system remain healthy as well as work to hydrate the body.

    Exercise Regularly
    Sitting in front of a TV or at a desk all day decreases the efficiency of the immune system.

    Moving the body, even just a little, works to stimulate the body’s own natural sewer system – the lymphatic system.

    It also increases both the leukocytes and oxygenation levels in the body and fights off infection.

    Get Adequate Sleep
    Lack of sleep is a known culprit in making the body susceptible to illness.

    A University of Chicago lab experiment proved this theory by limiting participants in the study to just four hours of sleep and then injecting them with a flu vaccine.

    The studies showed that their immune systems only generated half the normal amount of antibodies.

    Similar to stress, insomnia frequently produces an increase in inflammation throughout the body along with also increasing cortisol production.

    Avoid Stimulants
    Sugar, coffee, chocolate, black tea, alcohol, and cigarettes all have a negative effect on the immune system no matter what the season. These substances can literally produce physical stress in the human body. Consumed in large quantities over time, they will reduce the body’s ability to properly fight off infection.

    Relaxation and Meditation Techniques
    If too much stress suppresses the immune system, then incorporating certain techniques that will suppress the stress itself will allow the body to naturally heal itself. What are these techniques? Meditation, slowing down, and learning to relax.

    Meditation is simply the practice of quieting the mind – nothing more, nothing less. It’s a state of “being” and the perfect way to “recharge” your batteries.

    Many people relax by listening to guided meditation tapes or binaural beats in order to ‘let go’ and focus on all the good life has to offer.

    Quiet your mind for just 10 – 15 minutes a day and watch your stress naturally dissolve.
