HOW TO boost your immune system this winter

The great news about immune heath is that much of the control is in your own hands. We have complied some tips for getting 2022 on the right track for your optimal health.

Water is essential for immune health

No matter what water always tops the list and is still the best thing you can drink. Each person varies, but aim to drink eight, 8-ounce glasses of water a day. That can be hard to do. Your body get dehydrated after hours of sleep, so drink a glass of water right away when you wake up. If you struggle with drinking enough water, set reminders throughout the day or drink a glass of water before each meal. Caffeine-free hot tea can count as part of your daily water tally.

Exercise regularly to strengthen immunity

At any age, exercise is essential to preventing chronic illnesses such as heart disease and high blood pressure, and to keep your weight in control. Exercise also contributes to a healthy immune system. It promotes good blood circulation, which helps your immune system do its job more efficiently. Plus you feel better when you get your body moving!

Reduce stress for increased immune function

Easier said then done but this is a critical piece in maintaining your optimal health. Daily stress can overwork your immune system and drain your ability to stay healthy. Big and little daily stressors can constantly push your immune system. That’s why it’s important to take time for self-care. Start your morning with guided meditation (there are many free apps) to help get you started. Make time each day to do things to "refill your tank." Self-care varies from person to person. It can include setting aside time to read, hang out with a friend, take a walk, do a hobby or get a massage.

HONEY

Oh hey honey! 

A nutrient-rich honey that contains propolis is a powerful and deliciously sweet immunomodulator. Propolis is a complex, glue-like substance bees use to construct the hive and feed to sick bees, and it contains high levels of polyphenols, aka flavonoids and phenolic acids. It also boosts the function of white blood cells, is anti-inflammatory, and is an overall pharmacological wonder of nature. 

VITAMIN D

Contrary to the name, vitamin D is a hormone that plays an integral part in the immune system’s strength. Without sufficient vitamin D, one can experience more frequent colds or flu, fatigue, loss of bone mass, body pain, and even affect your mood. Due to the recent health crisis, spending more time indoors may have compounded the problem. Let your doctor advise on the right dosage required to get your levels back in line.
