With the latest news surrounding COVID-19, many people are wondering what they can do to assist in strengthening our immune systems. A healthier immune system will improve your overall health and well-being. Here are some things we recommend to improve your overall health and well-being.
Proper spinal adjustments have been linked to immune system improvement. When the body is not aligned correctly, it can cause the nerves of the body to have dysfunction. Spinal misalignment can cause the body to have a lower response to fighting illness.
Our body’s organs rely on the immune system and work together as a whole unit. When one area is out of balance, it impacts other areas of the body. When the spine is adjusted, it can immediately improve the immune system.
Proper Vitamin Intake
Some of the best vitamins to take for immunity include: Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Vitamin E. Vitamin C will bring about some of the best benefits for the immune system. Vitamin C is found in a number of foods including:
Our bodies are not able to produce or store Vitamin C, so it is important to increase Vitamin C into your diet in order to give your immune system a boost. Vitamin B6 is another vitamin to include into your diet.You can find Vitamin B6 in fish such as salmon and tune, chickpeas, and chicken. Finally, Vitamin E is another great addition as it is an antioxidant that fights infection. Implement Vitamin E into your diet with spinach and nuts.
Probiotics are often referred to as “the best for gut health.” Probiotics have been shown to help restore the good bacteria that is killed when we use antibiotics that kill off infection. Yogurt and cheese are commonly known has being filled with properties that help to target dangerous radical cells.
Daily exercise is one of the best ways to boost your body’s immune system. Our bodies need exercise to remain strong and resilient against dangerous viruses such as the COVID-19 virus. Exercise has been show to enhance the body in a number of ways including:
