Improving your Immunity.

Improving your Immunity.

HOW TO!

we all get sick. Some, more then others. I for one get sick all the time. I have a super busy and crazy stressed life and find that that, mixed with working with kids makes for a dangerous combo.

I’ve tried to find ways to improve my immune system to avoid getting sick every 3 weeks and as I stand Ive boiled it down to a healthy life style. This includes the following:

  • Don’t smoke.
  • Eat a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and low in saturated fat.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Control your blood pressure.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • Get adequate sleep.
  • Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.
  • Get regular medical screening tests for people in your age group and risk category.

Although there are alot of products that say they can boost your improve your immunity but that might not an accurate statement. one expert says “Many products on store shelves claim to boost or support immunity. But the concept of boosting immunity actually makes little sense scientifically. In fact, boosting the number of cells in your body — immune cells or others — is not necessarily a good thing. For example, athletes who engage in “blood doping” — pumping blood into their systems to boost their number of blood cells and enhance their performance — run the risk of strokes.”

Anyone have their own idea.
