5 Steps to Good Health - Immune Health

5 Steps to Good Health - Immune Health

Author -  Good Health

It is important to take care of your immune system throughout the year; however, often it is not until we are unwell, that we acknowledge how being sick can really impact us.

Continuously exposed to a variety of bugs, our immune system acts as a protective barrier to stop these ‘invaders’ from attacking our cells. Having a fever, although unpleasant, is actually a sign that your body is working hard to defend and protect your body.

Why does your body's immune system matter?

 

From the Latin term, ‘immunis’ meaning ‘free’, the immune system’s role is to protect us and keep us free from nasty bugs and germs in our environment.

Our immune system has a central role as our defence system. It is the dynamic communication between different body systems which enables the immune system to recognise and remember pathogenic cells, so they can eradicate them quickly. A well-functioning immune system has the ability to protect us, while leaving our own healthy cells alone.

The immune system can recognize millions of different antigens and it can produce what it needs to eradicate nearly all of them. When it’s working properly, this elaborate defence system can keep health problems at bay.
 
Exercise keeps your skin healthy and glowing, too. Unlike the heart, the lymphatic system does not have a pump and relies on the movement of your body to keep it flowing. When the lymphatic system is congested, waste can build up in the tissue of our body and cause rashes, blemishes and irritation.

Our immune system can be put under stress at any time of the year however it is during winter that there is not only a drop in temperature, but also a rise in illness. A strong immune system can protect us from illness throughout the year and help us to recover sooner, should we catch anything.

 

Want to support your immune system?

 

Try Good Health’s 5 Steps to Support your Immune Health:

1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Water transports nutrients around the body helping to regulate our temperature, aid digestion and flush out toxins. An essential nutrient, water keeps our skin, tissues, organs and cells lubricated in the body. Keeping hydrated also helps the brain to function and reduces drowsiness. It is important that we are drinking around 2 litres of water each day and more if you are consuming caffeine.

2. Incorporate regular exercise into your routine
Research suggests regular exercise helps to reduce the number infections we face each year, not only because it helps to strengthen our immune system, but it helps to flush toxins from the body too. Exercise helps to oxygenate the lungs while improving circulation, it can also help boost energy levels and assist with sleep. Moving your body is one of the simplest ways to connected with yourself. If you are feeling overwhelmed, it is best to avoid strenuous exercise as this can put your immune system under more pressure.

3. Aim for 7-9 hours of high-quality sleep 
If we do not receive adequate sleep each night, not only is our mood and cognition compromised, our immune system is too. It is during sleep that our cells undergo repair, making sleep crucial for everyday function. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night so that your immune system can function optimally and you can feel your best. 

4. Eat from a rainbow plate 
Full of nutrients and antioxidants, a rainbow plate not only looks good, it helps to nourish the immune system. As more pressure is placed on the immune system during the winter months, our body needs more nutrients. Fresh fruit and vegetables provide essential nutrients that are important for supporting the immune defences. Choosing multi-coloured seasonal fruit and vegetables that have travelled a smaller distance, will offer a nutrient dense plate for strong immune support.

5. Look to nature for extra support
Herbs such as olive leaf, cat’s claw and echinacea help to support the immune system by  supporting the body’s defences and supporting recovery. Herbs can provide extra support for someone wanting to support their immune system and offer an array of mutual benefits such as antioxidant effects.
