DO YOU HAVE A HEALTHY IMMUNE SYSTEM?



I cannot stress the importance of a healthy immune system enough as this has been my mission all along with why I do the work that I do.

.

The answer to being healthy isn't necessarily weight loss. Weight loss to achieve a healthy body composition is just a bi-product.

.

So many times I see individuals (sometimes my clients too when they don't follow my plan in the beginning) crash and burn with these fad diets.

.

They go all in with meal replacements, energy supplements, unrealistic workout commitments that end up stressing their body out even more than ever. Taking on these new changes all at once can not only be a physical stress with new workout routines but mental and emotional stress as you completely drop your current lifestyle for that golden ticket.

.

There is no golden ticket. You got to where you are now by working at it daily and the only way out of it is to reincorporate habits that promote the healthy lifestyle you are looking for.

.

Interestingly enough, all those things we talk about that says 'healthy' are also things that can improve and maintain a healthy immune system.

.

1 - Reduce stress levels; Chronic stress suppresses the immune response of the body by releasing the hormone cortisol.

.

2 - Moderate your alcohol intake - Numerous researches have shown that excess intake of alcohol can tamper with the immune system and its pathway in a complicated manner.

.

3 - Get your vitamins - Vitamin A, B6, C, D and E can help increase the strength of the immune system. You can take multivitamin supplements, however, natural intake through food is the best way.

.

4 - Eat more vegetables - Vegetables, fruits, seeds and nuts are loaded with nutrients that are essential for our immune system.

.

5 - Exercise - Working out on a regular basis has been scientifically proven to boost the immune system. Regular exercise mobilises the T cells, a type of white blood cell which guards the body against infection. However, continuous rigorous workout weakens the immune system, leaving you prone to flu and viral infections.

.

6 - Get enough sleep - Lack of sleep can cause the inflammatory immune response to activate, reducing the activity of T cells in the body. This can weaken your immune system and response to vaccines.

.

7 - Quit smoking - Stop the habit of smoking because not only does it increases the risk of cancer but it also impairs the immune system. Smoking is said to have a negative impact on both adaptive and innate immunity. It can also increase the chances of developing harmful pathogenic immune responses and smoking also reduces the effectiveness of your immune system’s defenses.

.

8 - Go outside - Stepping out in the natural light is one of the major contributors to the production of Vitamin D in our body. Vitamin D is essential for healthy functioning of the immune system as it helps the body to produce antibodies. Low level of Vitamin D in the body has been termed as one of the major reasons for respiratory problems. A brisk walk in the sunlight for 10–15 minutes will ensure that enough Vitamin D is produced in the body.

.

As you can see from the above, the lead here is nutrition, THEN "fitness". If you are eating poorly, your body does not have the nutrients it needs for repair or to cope with the stresses of our everyday lives. Working out can definitely help with anxiety, as this is what many of us use this for but too much of anything is no good whether or not that thing is a good thing.
