Physical Activity - How It Can Boost Your Immunity?

Physical Activity - How It Can Boost Your Immunity?

A healthy person can be more productive; increased productivity will eventually lead to success and happiness. However, all of this goes for a toss when you suffer from frequent illness. The frequency of falling sick is also known to reduce a body’s immunity further.

And, exercise is known to boost not only the immune system of the body, but also keeps the bones and the heart healthy, preventing the risk of many diseases and illnesses. It is in the last few decades that various studies and research has confirmed a number of health benefits associated with regular exercise, immunology being one of them.

Physical activity boosts the immune system

Doctors have found that regular physical activities help in boosting the cells that are there in the body to attack the bacteria and other disease-causing microbes when they enter the body. In people who do not exercise at all, these cells turn out to work rather more slowly compared to those who lead an active daily life with a few hours or minutes of physical activities in it. And as a result of exercising, the immune system becomes well-equipped to prevent attacks of germs which could make you sick.

Can doing too much physical activity be harmful?
Physical activity is primarily known for keeping your body in a perfect shape and your weight under control. However, one must understand that it can only help the body's natural immune system when done at a moderate level, as overdoing it can lead to suppressing the normal immune functions instead. If you don’t give your body the rest it requires, the immune system can become weaker than before, making you feel weak, tired and badly run down.

How can you boost your immunity power through exercise?
One doesn't need to be an athlete or start doing heavy weightlifting to boost the body's immunity power. Walking half an hour daily or spending a few hours every week in the gym can help you develop better immunity. Remember, the whole concept behind physical exercise boosting the immune system of the body lies in speeding up the cells of the immune system so that, it can fight off the bacteria. Therefore, as long as an exercise is boosting the cells' functionality, you're good to go, irrespective of whether it's swimming or cycling or regular jogging.

Though, there are still debates on the direct relationship between exercises and how it improves the immune functions of the body, immunologists and allergy specialists have found simple truths about the impact of exercise on immunology. Therefore, outside of helping your body in becoming healthier over time, there’s no denying that regular exercise can help the body in fighting off harmful diseases as well, by boosting its immune power. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Would prescribe correct treatment. Dear lybrate-user, what you are taking will only relieve yourskin allergy temporarily as it only control the rash or itching, it doesnot address the root cause of youre allergy which may be due to, dust, ,pollen or certain foods. To find out the cause or causes of yopur skin allergy you should see an Allergist who after taking detailed history and examination will order certain specific allergy tests like modified Prick test or even Patch test then he.

Wat is steam inhalation? How it can relief allergy? Should we have to mix anything with the water?
Steam inhalation is given if there is any congestion in the throat (larynx), nose and sometimes in the lungs due to infection or allergy. It only relieves congestion to some extent. It is not a treatment which may need antibiotics or antihistaminics.

You say this big black mole is new you should see your doctor if (1) it is getting bigger ((2) getting itchy (3) bleeds (4) getting darker or changing colour. It is definitely not due to allergy.

You may be suffering from allergy to sun and may be other conditions like excessive iron due ti high levels of haemoglobin which cause itching after hot bath, But this is a rar condition. To start with you should avoid sunshine as much as possible and use watyer from different source for 2 to 3 weeks .If are no better you should seek the advice of a dermatologist which may have to do any way.

I'm suffering from long term allergy. I have frequent nasal blockage and headache since my childhood. My doctor says that I am allergic to something in the environment and so, I will have to take medication to avoid my symptoms. I feel very drowsy on medication and am not able to concentrate on my work. How can I get rid of my allergies? Please help.

You can certainly be helped very effectively. Your long term suffering will disappear and you do not have to suffer from drowsiness any more. You work like any other normal person and your quality of life willimprove tremedously. This most recent and advanced method of treatment is called IMMUNOTHERAPY and it is extensively practised in USA, AND UK. We do skin prick test to find out what are the things you are allergic to (these are called ALLERGENS) and inject vaccine against these allergens. It works on the same principle as vaccination against small pox or meales etc. Interestigly these injections are painless. For more information please contact.

It seems your allergy is severe. Your Dr. can prescribe other stronger antihistmines like allegra and sme other group of medications like montelukast etc. If these do not help you should see an allergist who can do tests to find out what you are allergic and treat you more rationally. If you get any swelling of tongue ,throat or difficulty breathing you should seek medicine help immediately or go hospital.
