Mother knew best and she always told her children eat healthy, get enough sleep, exercise, go out and play, don’t smoke, don’t drink . . . “This is how our parents brought us up” she would say. Those were basics in the days gone by and they were followed. I guess that is how our Grandparents stayed so healthy over the years. I never knew a time when they were down with the flu or were in hospital for a period of time.
Times have changed and the basics that strengthen our immune system are forgotten by many. It is not just one thing or an entity; it is a system – the immune system. To function well, it required balance & harmony. We should take care of ourselves as proper care would help our immune system of cells, organs and tissues.
Hearing so much of the virus around us, it certainly rings a bell when we are reminded of the good health habits we are expected to follow now, which we have been taking for granted as it were.
Why do I need to strengthen my immune system? If not, I would face the symptoms I have seen in many from time to time, as they were not strong enough to fight off the signs of their stress levels going high, frequently facing tummy trouble, frequently catching a cold, finding their wounds taking a long time to heal, getting frequent infections and feeling tired all the time.
Choosing a healthy life style is important for me. I follow good and healthy habits to keep ahead and towards naturally keeping my immune system healthy & strong. Every part of my body, including my immune system functions better when I protected it from adverse effects of the environment and eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables, exercise regularly, maintain a healthy weight, get adequate sleep, minimize stress, avoid infection by washing my hands frequently, don't smoke and drink alcohol only in moderation. Checking the level of Vitamin D and taking a D supplement is also good as it could help your body to fight off a respiratory illness.
Three great immune boosters are Vitamin C – which we know is needed for repair of all body tissues in addition to our growth & development as it is involved in many body functions including the immune system. Vitamin B6 – is known to be important in maintaining a healthy body and in developing a healthy brain. Vitamin E – is a powerful antioxidant that helps the body fight off infection.
