TODAY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER TO OPTIMIZE YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
As the coronavirus spreads, we are hearing about how to reduce exposure, but we’re not hearing much about how we can boost our immunity so that our body can effectively fight back.
Our immune systems are designed to fight off viruses, but it can get worn down by things we do every day. One of the functions of CBD in the body is to act as an immuno-cannabinoid modulator. Taking regular doses of CBD supports the endocannabinoid system which signals various responses in the immune system.
Today it is more important than ever to optimize your immune system by making a few changes or additions to your daily health routine.
One of the most important ways to boost immunity is to reduce stress. When you're stressed out your body produces stress hormones like cortisol or epinephrine. This puts a big tax on the immune system making it difficult to fight off infections.
Stress can also have an indirect effect on the immune system as a person may use unhealthy behaviors to try to reduce it such as drinking, smoking, or binge eating.
Because sleeping is essential to rebuilding a struggling immune system, we need to let ourselves sleep as much as we need. Listen to when your body is telling you it is tired. Every time we stay awake when our bodies want us to sleep, we increase stress and lower our immunity.
A healthy night's sleep will help us wake up in a better mood, increase creativity, increase cognitive functions, and reduce our susceptibility to daily stresses.
Eating foods rich in nutrients like vitamins C and E, plus beta-carotene and zinc can help boost your immune system. Go for a variety of brightly colored foods such as citrus fruits, garlic, broccoli and spinach.
Remove inflammatory foods like alcohol, sugar, and processed meat from your diet that can put an unnecessary strain on the already overworked immune system.
Low to Moderate intensity exercise naturally lowers cortisol and helps with immune system function. Don’t go overboard though. Too much exercise is stressful on the body and can lead to inflammation and pain.
Staying active doesn't have be going to the gym or long runs. Try playing with the kids in the backyard, catch up on some housework, or take your best friend for a walk.
