Tips for a Healthy Immune System

By Sara Butler

It's that time of year again: Cold and flu season has arrived! That means that it's as important as ever to ensure your immune system is functioning at its very best. There are a few easy ways you can make your health a priority this winter. Here are some tips from the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic to help get you started.

See the Chiropractor

Many people see chiropractors to help them deal with aches and pains, but what many may not know is that regular chiropractic adjustments can help your immune system too. That's because chiropractic adjustments help to keep your central nervous system working at its very best and that keeps your immune system functioning at its best too. Chiropractors work to identify and repair joint dysfunction and restrictions. Once these are removed, then your body is free to communicate as it was made too, including the signals sent to the central nervous system to help you fight off invaders. So, make regular chiropractic adjustments a part of your immune-strengthening plan this winter!

Cut Back on Sugar

One of the best ways you can maintain a healthy immune system is to provide your body with the nutrient-rich foods it needs to thrive. Refined sugars are lacking in nutrients and provide only empty calories that take the place of other more nutrient-rich foods. Cut back on refined sugars in your diet and replace them with whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, and lean protein and you've got a winning recipe for a strong and effective immune system.

Reduce Stress

Stress this time of the year can impact nearly everyone, but keeping tabs on your stress levels can also work to keep you healthy. Stress weakens your immune system because it increases the production of the stress hormone cortisol. This hormone increases blood sugar and blood pressure, which weakens your immune system. Learn how to handle stress in a healthy way, such as exercise, and strive to find balance in your life. This can help to make that immune system strong and will likely leave you much happier in the process once you're not so stressed out all the time!
