There are ways to help support your immune system naturally. Here are a few tips to help you stay at the top of your game.
These are our suggestions:
1. Take some time out
Making time to de-stress and unwind can help support your immune function.
It is said that there is a link between stress and decreased immune function. According to Psychology Today, “Ongoing stress makes us susceptible to illness and disease because the brain sends defence signals to the endocrine system, which then releases an array of hormones that not only gets us ready for emergency situations but severely depresses our immunity at the same time.”
Of course, nobody wants a nasty cold or flu. So what can you do to help prevent this?
This is where an infrared sauna can help. This infrared sauna has personalised programs with clinically researched wavelengths.
Sunlighten’s research-backed near infrared heating technology can help strengthen the immune system. In fact, a NASA study showed this same near infrared therapy, delivered by LEDs deep into body tissue, can quadruple cell health and tissue growth. 1
2. Consider Natural Supplements
Once you’ve focused on relaxation, there are numerous options for immune system support supplements. For cold and flu defence, we recommend you look into natural supplements (such as ProtectME)
There are various immune support supplements available. These options are often debated in the health and fitness industry. If you are unsure which supplement is right for you, we recommend you consult with your physician.
3. Get moving
Once you are relaxed and are adding supplements to a balanced diet, consider adding in exercise.
Exercise is one of the pillars of wellbeing. Without pushing yourself too hard, staying active this winter can help you maintain your general health. To get started, consider adding 2-3 cardiovascular or strength workouts per week. It can be as simple as adding a brisk walk to your morning routine.
As with supplementation, we suggest you consult with your healthcare practitioner before beginning a new exercise routine.
Then you’re ready to support your immune system. Now you can perform at your best during the remainder of the colder months. And to add to this, you will build rituals to help you feel great year round!
