3 Ways to Naturally Improve Your Immune System

By Donna Stark

For most of us, our body's immune system works pretty well. It does an amazing job of keeping each and every one of us out of bed and away from doctors. And we know this to be true because if it didn't, we wouldn't be alive for as long as we have been. But as good as our immune systems are, they weren't designed to work all on their own. There are several things we need to do to help keep them healthy and functioning properly. Want to know what those things are? Check out the following suggestions from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic and try to implement them into your daily routine as quickly as you can.

Well-Balanced Diet

Did you know that food fuels your immune system in the same way that it fuels your body? And just like your body, your immune system craves (and requires) a quality, well-balanced diet. Fill your meals and snacks with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and heart-healthy fats, and try adding more nutrition to your diet by eating the rainbow. Adding a variety of colorful foods to your meals will ensure you are consuming a wide range of vitamins and minerals. Just be sure the color you seek is coming from whole, natural fruits and vegetables and not from the processed junk food you can find on the store shelves.

Daily Exercise

You may not have thought exercise can improve your immune system, but the truth is, it absolutely can! In addition to helping you maintain a healthy weight and improving your cardiovascular health, exercise also increases circulation. And good circulation helps your immune system work more efficiently. So get off your couch and start moving. Try to find a fitness routine that you enjoy so you will be more likely to stay motivated and committed.

Quality Sleep

If you are the type of person that wakes up and hits the ground running, and then keeps running until everyone else is fast asleep, you may want to slow down and try something else. Shortchanging your body of the rest it needs can wreak havoc on your immune system, so try to prioritize your sleep from here on out. Aim for at least seven hours of quality rest each night. It won't be long before you realize how much your sleep deprivation was impacting your overall health and wellness.
