6 WAYS TO BUILD A STRONG IMMUNE SYSTEM, #6 WILL SURPRISE YOU
In wake of COVID-19, a strong immune system is on our wish list. Now more than ever, there are so many ads for products telling us that they are the magic cure to boost our immune system. Hmm... can one thing really build a strong immune system and give it the boost it needs to go from scrawny to brawny? Does it really work like Popeye after he eats his spinach? There is much to be said about eating spinach but we'll get to that later. First, the boring part, don't snooze. Our Immune System is a network of cells that defend our body against foreign invaders such as bacteria, viruses, chemicals, and anything else our body classifies as toxic, we have this same power in our outer world too. When we have chronic stress, are sleep deprived, dehydrated and eat lots of processed foods & sweets, we are sending out signals for help to our immune system. It's like our body is constantly crying wolf and our immune system goes to fight off self induced inflammation that is consistently being produced in response to these stressors. With this being said, it's not uncommon for a threat that needs all the troops to enter our body and we don't have enough available troops to defend ourselves from the bacteria or virus and we get sick. Of course, our immune system is much more complicated than this paragraph can begin to explain, consider this as a snapshot. Now on to the fun part. Break out your party hats because it will be an internal party when the bad guys get evicted from your body. When we give the body the right environment it will thrive and function at a peak level.
