Cool Ways to Boost Your Immune System

 

A Few Cool Ways to Boost your Immune System – That You Likely Didn’t Know About

 

It’s no secret that a healthy dose of vegetables and fruits, adequate rest and reducing stress can boost your immune system.

But here’s a few awesome ways you might not have thought about:

Floss 

While brushing is a great start, you need to be flossing your teeth. Food stuck between your teeth can become a breeding ground for bacterial growth which can make you sick. Floss daily.

Sing

Terrible voice? No worries, all the better… singing with a songbird or ‘less than melodic’ voice will still boost your immune function according to research studies. The recommendation is to sing daily to reduce stress hormones and increase immune hormones.

Sun

While you don’t want to overdo it, getting sun on your skin is important. It helps the body to produce Vitamin D, which is vital for activating T cells which are responsible for eliminating pathogens, bacteria, and viruses inside our body.

Love

There’s a good reason that people are social creatures. Staying connected with friends, relatives, and loved ones has a positive impact on your overall immune system.

Having a positive support system around you gives you the ability to more rapidly cope with problems that may lower your immunity. Thus, one of the best investments you can make today is building stronger relationships with others.

Drink

Wine is made of grapes. Grapes are high in antioxidants. A little wine may not be a bad idea for improving immune function!

 

Chiropractic

A study in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT) in 1991 found improved immune response following chiropractic adjustments. The study showed that it creates a release of PMNs which are the cells that act like Pac-Man destroying the bad cells. It also found that cells called monocytes were enhanced in adults that had been adjusted by chiropractors which are also important in immune function.
