How to Strengthen Your Immunity



If only you remove bad habits from your life, the immunity will immediately recover itself. However, it is difficult for a person to change the ecological situation, to abandon the established way of life, entertainment in the city, profitable “sedentary” work. In addition, not everyone can count the calories eaten and make up a daily diet. In this case, you can change your lifestyle at least a bit.

1. Nutrition:

Food should be fresh, balanced and healthy. It is necessary to exclude as much sweet, floury, fatty, canned and salty foods from the diet as possible. It is better to eat fruits, nuts and vegetables, and replace animal fats with vegetable.

It is also important not to overeat, but to eat in small portions 3-5 times a day, while always eating breakfast. Honey and bee products will increase the immunity significantly.

2. Active way of life – sport and movement:

Good immunity is affected by fresh air and the amount of movement. Do morning exercises and aerobics. Attend the pool, fitness, shaping and gyms, as all physical exercises are very useful for the body. From such a variety, you can choose something suitable for your pocket, taste and mood. However, it is also impossible to get involved in excessive loads, as it will only worsen the immunity.

3. Fasting

Daily fasting once a week perfectly relieves the body of toxins, as well as stimulates the protective function of the body.

4. Compliance with the regime – good sleep

Full sleep perfectly normalizes the internal processes of the body, and regular lack of sleep leads to a malfunction of its work. Go to bed on time, because a healthy sleep is not only a pledge of perfect well-being, but also of a good mood and fruitful work. To strengthen the immunity you need 7-8 hours of sleep. Doctors believe that the best time to sleep is between 22.00 and 05.00. The most valuable hours of sleep are until midnight, while in total darkness. So, before going to bed shade the windows in the bedroom well, so that street lights do not break through. The lack of sleep can not be ignored, because a person becomes irritable, and this contributes to the development of stress and other problems.

5. Drinking water

You should drink at least 2 liters of water per day. Also do not forget about the teas. The preference should be given to green teas.

6. Get rid of bad habits

Smoking and alcohol cause an irreparable blow to the entire body, including the immune system.

7. Massage

A good massage activates the metabolism, blood and lymph circulation, improves nutrition and microcirculation of tissues, restores vitality, improves immunity, normalizes trophic processes in skin.

8. Relaxation

If possible, master the technique of relaxation: respiratory gymnastics or yoga. Often take a warm bath, as warm water soothes the nervous system. In addition, after coming home after work, lie down on the sofa with your eyes closed, breathing evenly and deeply, think about something pleasant. At the same time, you can turn on soft music. This way will perfectly remove the accumulated fatigue of the day.

9. Avoid stressful situations

Long-term stress is the strongest shock for the immunity. Moreover, the most dangerous is uncontrolled stress, when a person can not cope with his emotions. Therefore, you should learn how to deal with stressful situations. Form a calm attitude to everything that happens. Remember that if you can not change the situation, then take it for granted. Favorite work, a relaxed home atmosphere and goodwill will be the most effective aids to improving immunity. Play music, listen to the sounds of nature and soothing melodies.

10. Laugh more

If sometimes you experience stress, then it must be compensated with laughter! Laughter activates absolutely all vital processes, has a beneficial effect on the body and strengthens the immune system. It increases appetite, lowers the level of bad cholesterol, reduces the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

11. Accustom yourself to the cold

Swimming, contrast shower and douche will help to get stronger and gain healthy strength. Alternating low and high temperatures is an excellent training of the immune system. Just do not forget to vigorously rub your body with a towel, after water procedures. Training can be the most primitive – alternating dousing with hot and cold water, starting from the forearms (from the hand to the elbow), moving to the entire body.

12. Vitamins and trace elements

You can support the immune system with special medications – the modern pharmaceutical market offers a lot of vitamins and immunostimulating agents. However, before the beginning of their reception, it is necessary to consult a doctor and make certain laboratory tests that will help to choose the right therapeutic complex. However, one should also remember about natural products that contain many useful properties.
