Immune System and Immunity

How to Boost Your Immune System Naturally?

Imagine your immune system as your body’s defence mechanism. Typically, it does a remarkable job of protecting you against invaders, microorganisms that cause disease. However, the immune system falls short, letting an invader in, resulting in illness.

5 Ways to Boost Your Immune System Naturally

To ensure your immune system can perform, it’s important you make choices that strengthen it, even before you’re sick. Here are 5 ways to boost your immunity, ensuring you can remain healthy (in all seasons!).

1. Get Enough Sleep

Studies have shown that sleep and the circadian system exert a strong regulatory force on immune functions. It’s not uncommon for work and the daily callings of life to impede a good night’s. However, without proper rest, your body produces fewer cytokines, proteins that target infection and inflammation. During sleep, your body both produces and releases cytokines–so get your recommended seven to nine hours in order to achieve optimal health!   

2. Eat a Healthy Diet

It’s common knowledge that a well-balanced diet is important. Studies say that optimal nutrition for the best immunological outcomes would be nutrition, which supports the functions of immune cells, allowing them to start effective responses against pathogens. Immunity begins largely with what you eat. So, eat a diet rich in fresh fruits, veggies, grains, and lean proteins–and be liberal with anti-inflammatory foods like citrus, bell peppers, garlic, ginger, and turmeric.

3. Minimize Stress 

Stress induces the production of cortisol, which in small amounts can limit inflammation and boost immunity. However, prolonged exposure to cortisol causes further inflammation, as the body becomes accustomed to its presence in the blood. In addition, stress reduces the body’s lymphocytes, white blood cells that combat infection. Limiting stress is playing a major role in fighting illness. While it may seem impossible, there are several simple ways to reduce stress–such as yoga, meditation, and exercise.

4. Exercise Regularly

Not only do exercises decrease stress, but it also improve defence activity and metabolic health, which positively affects the immune system. While the recommended amount of exercise varies per person, a good starting point is 30 minutes of moderate exercise five times per week.

5. Stay Hydrated

As Larry Kenney, Phd, a professor of physiology and kinesiology at Penn State puts it, “Hydration is important because the body comprises water, and the proper balance between water and electrolytes in our bodies really determines how most of our system function, including nerves and muscles.” Not sure how much water to consume? Given your age and weight, this hydration calculator shows how much water you should drink per day.  

Through healthy lifestyle choices, you can build your immunity. That being said, IV drips are an effective way to quickly give your system a boost. If you are not receiving an adequate amount of nutrients through diet and supplements, your immune system can suffer. Unlike oral nutrient intake, IV drips deliver vitamins and minerals directly to your bloodstream. With IV drips, nutrients bypass the digestive tract, meaning that you receive their effect almost instantly at a much higher absorption rate. Plus, as mentioned earlier, your body needs fluids–especially when trying to fight off illness. IV drips deliver the hydration your cells require functioning at their peak. 

A properly functioning immune system begins with simple healthy lifestyle choices. IV drips can act as an auxiliary measure in boosting immunity. Whether you need some added support or want to take precautionary steps in fighting illness, IV drips can be a great option for enhancing immune health.

With ivee, getting an IV drip has never been easier. Just download the app and choose your treatment. Enter your location, and a nurse will be on their way. In no time, your immune system will be on the fast track to functioning at its best.
