Although colds and flu are most frequent around the winter months, maintaining a healthy immune system throughout the year can be beneficial for keeping the body healthy overall. From medication to supplements, there’s widespread knowledge on how to achieve an immunity boost. However, improving and maintaining a healthy immune system can also be accomplished through natural alternatives.

First of all, plenty of rest daily is important for improving and maintaining a healthy immune system. Research shows that individuals who consistently sleep between 7-8 hours, have stronger immune systems and are less likely to get sick. Various factors, such as stress from work or simply engaging in leisure activities before bed, can often disrupt an individual’s sleeping habits and can make getting enough rest difficult. But, going to bed and waking up at the same time each day can help re-build a proper sleeping habit, helping you get a longer, better, less interrupted night’s sleep.

Then, in order to improve and maintain a healthy immune system, its important to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables instead of consuming sugary, processed snacks. Vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients found in the food you eat is what sustains the body to keep it healthy. The food we eat becomes a main source of energy for the cells to function properly and if we are not feeding our body the appropriate food, it will begin to reflect on it. An excess of sugar in the body may begin to attack the immune system and shut down its protective abilities.

Exercise is also an essential part of maintaining overall health, especially when improving immunity. At least 30 minutes of exercise a day can help eliminate waste products from your body, allowing it to function more efficiently and improving your immune system.

Drinking plenty of water can also help your immune system. Not only does keeping hydrated allow the structures in the body to function at their full capacity but having enough water in your system also helps filter the waste products out of your body. It’s especially important to increase water intake while participating in physical activities in order to avoid dehydration and continue providing the body with the base of consumption it needs to function regularly.

Finally, regular chiropractic adjustment can help both improve and maintain a healthy immune system. When the body has experienced an injury or condition which has caused a subluxation, or misalignment of the spine, the nerve transmissions from the brain to the central nervous system can be interrupted. The failure in the connection of certain nerves can alter the function of different parts of the body, the immune system included. By receiving regular chiropractic care, a chiropractor can help ensure the body is functioning to its full capacity.
