How can I Boost my Immune system Naturally?
Your immune system does a remarkable job of defending against disease-causing microorganisms. But sometimes it fails.
When your immune system is not working well, a germ can invade successfully and makes you sick. You may ask:
- Is it possible to intervene in this process and boost my immune system?
- What if I improve my diet?
- Should I take certain vitamins or herbal preparations?
Kristin Wootton, ND can put together a personalized therapeutic plan that includes diet modifications, nutritional supplements, and botanical medicine so you are better able to head off acute illnesses before they became severe and to improve your overall energy and well being.
Understanding the Immune System
The immune system is precisely that — a system, not a single entity. To function well, it requires balance and harmony. There is still much that researchers don't know about the intricacies and interconnectedness of the immune response.
But that doesn't mean that the effects of a healthy lifestyle on the immune system can't be beneficial. Researchers at Harvard Medical School are exploring the effects of diet, exercise, age, psychological stress, and other factors on the immune response, both in animals and in humans. In the meantime, general healthy-living strategies are a good way to start giving your immune system the upper hand.
Healthy ways to strengthen your immune system
Your first line of defense is to choose a healthy lifestyle. Following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward naturally keeping your immune system strong and healthy. Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected from environmental assaults and bolstered by healthy-living strategies.
