Your immune system works hard to keep you healthy. Its job is to keep germs out of your body, destroy them or limit the extent of their harm if they get in. When your immune system is working properly, it can tell which cells are yours and which substances are foreign to your body. It activates, mobilizes, attacks and kills foreign invader germs that can cause you harm.
Many factors in modern society cause stress to our immune systems. For instance, chemicals in the environment, genetics, heavy metals, drug therapies, dysbiosis, liver problems, intestinal permeability, and poor diet can burden our immune systems. Although these conditions come with a distinct underlying cause that must be addressed, direct support of the immune system is often necessary.
Supporting the immune system is of benefit to your client’s health, but it is more helpful to find out the cause of stress to the immune system in the first place. Liver function,digestion, dysbiosis, heavy metal toxicity, and other core issues need to be examined.
Tips To Improve Immune System Function
Avoid refined sugar and refined carbohydrates
Refined food is just as bad as saturated fat when it comes to its harmful effects on the cardiovascular system.
Also, a refined food diet is low in folic acid, B12, and B6, all of which are necessary to keep homocysteine levels low. High homocysteine levels increase the risks of cardiac problems as much as cholesterol.
Syndrome X, a situation where the total cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL (bad cholesterol) are increased and the HDL (good cholesterol) is decreased, is linked to the consumption of too many refined carbohydrates and poor carbohydrate tolerance.
Avoid hydrogenated and partially‐hydrogenated oils
Avoid margarine and all sources of hydrogenated oil, these are linked to heart disease
You find these in packaged food and margarine.
Keep this in mind; there are still physicians out there who have their cardiac patients eating margarine.
Also, limit your intake of saturated fats.
Eat Dark Colored Produce
The fiber in produce reduces stress on the digestive system and helps to bring dysbiosis under control.
Simple aerobic exercise is enough, never become out of breath or be unable to talk while working out. Get older clients to walk.
Drink Enough Water
Get Enough Rest
In today’s fast-paced world, finding time to rest and rejuvenate has become more important than ever. In our quest for productivity and success, we often overlook the crucial need for adequate rest.
