Eight Ways to Boost Your Immune System

How strong is your immune system?  Do you know?  Do you even think about your immune system when you’re not sick?  If not, you should.  You have the power to make your immune system stronger and decrease your chances of getting sick.  Get your immune system in top form now.  Read on to find out how.

How does the immune system ward off illness?  By keeping the body in balance and functioning at optimal wellness.  Imagine your immune system as a giant force field surrounding every cell, organ and tissue in your body.  When the force field is activated, you could trapped in an elevator packed with sneezing people — and still be protected.

Through a complex system of chemical messengers known as cytokines, the immune system also controls cell growth, inflammation, cell death and energy production.

A powerful immune system is a key component of chiropractic’s all-natural preventative strategy against disease.  Instead of relying on potentially dangerous household cleaners, drugs and other forms of “protection” from the invisible world of bacteria and viruses, Dr. Smith encourages patients to concentrate on building stalwart immune systems.  Following are eight ways to do just that.

  1. Schedule chiropractic visits.
  2. Stop stress.
  3. Embrace exercise.
  4. Savour your sleep.
  5. Amplify antioxidant intake.
  6. Dissect your diet.
  7. Stay social.
