We come in contact with thousands of different germs every day, and it’s our immune system’s job to make to sure we don’t get ill from these germs. It’s for this reason that you need to do everything in your power to keep you immune system strong and healthy.
One great way to give your immune system a boost is to eat the right foods. Eating the right nutrients keeps your immune system strong. You should make sure you are eating your five a day of vegetables and fruit. There are also extra foods you can add to your diet that are full of little power boosts such as yogurt, shellfish, oats and barley, red meats and blueberries. It’s also important to be drinking a lot of water every day – it is advised to drink about eight glasses of water. Your body is mainly made up of water so keeping hydrated is vital for staying healthy and keeping your immune system strong. Drinking lots of water also helps flush out any bad toxins in your system.
To keep your immune system strong you should also try to keep stress levels as low as possible. Stress can leave you feeling exhausted and worn out, which can cause your immune system to weaken. People have different methods of relaxing from meditation, relaxing in the bath to socialising with friends. Which ever method of relaxation works for you, you should always make sure you put time aside regularly at least twice a week to relax and do what makes you happy to help you de-stress.
Visiting a sauna is a great way to give your immune system a boost. When you are in the hot sauna and steam room your body will sweat a lot, which helps remove any bad toxins your body absorbed from food, drinks and the environment. Going to the sauna is also relaxing and can help reduce stress. When you go to a sauna you can relax in the spa pool, take your mind off the world in the sauna and steam rooms. You could also book yourself a relaxing massage and loosen up your joints whilst relieving muscle tension.
Finally to keep your immune system strong you should be making sure you do a little exercise regularly, even if it’s just going for little walks when you can. It all helps keep your heart in good health which helps improve your immune system.
