7 Healthy Habits That Keep Your Immune System Strong

7 Healthy Habits That Keep Your Immune System Strong

Over time, we have caused tremendous harm to our immune system. Day in and day out, we have potentially risked our lives by being so casual with our health choices. But still, is it possible to leverage some of this burden and thus make our immune system stronger? What if we incorporate some healthy habits into our daily regime? What if we improvise on our diet? Take certain additional vitamin supplements perhaps? Make other lifestyle changes in the hope of achieving a near-perfect immune system?

What exactly is the Immune System?

The immune system in layman language can be considered as a protective cover of the human health system. We are surrounded by millions of pathogens (disease causing germs) that have the ability to enter into the body and cause damage to it. Here comes in the importance of the immune system, the body’s natural shield against these pathogens.

How can you boost your Immunity?

You definitely cannot evade all the pathogens and get a top-notch, impeccable immune system, but you can at least try and listen to what your body has to say, and take steps accordingly.

The first and foremost protective measure can be to follow certain general good-health guidelines.

  1. Do not smoke. There can be no compromise on this issue. Smoking or consuming tobacco in any form brings about a host of health complications; the most pronounced of them all is probably cancer. Smoking, in more ways than one, can spell real trouble for your immune system. So better cut down on your puffs or gear up to face the various medical banes of smoking.

  2. Eat a diet which is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low in saturated fat. Some examples may include citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables such as spinach or lettuce, yoghurt, almonds, lean meat. Sipping on green tea thrice a day is a wise choice in this regard. These measures not only strengthen the immune system but also enhance the Immune System.

  3. Drink plenty of water. Water keeps the body hydrated, the ultimate prerequisite for a strong immune system. It helps to flush out all the toxins and ensures that the cells get the optimum levels of oxygen. Drinking a glass of lukewarm water mixed with honey and lemon on an empty stomach after getting up in the morning can prove to be one of the best health choices that you can make for your body.

  4. If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation. Excessive alcohol consumption causes dehydration and it can deprive your body of the valuable immunity boosting nutrients. It also impairs the body’s ability to fight off germs and infections.

  5. Get adequate sleep. One reason behind stressing on the need to get adequate sleep is because it’s so closely linked to the immune system. While you sleep, the body secretes certain hormones and substances which help better fight infections and diseases. This makes these hormones so vital and indispensable at the same time. So now you know what wonders can those 8 hours of sleep do to you.

  6. Exercise Regularly. If you're looking for a safe and smart way to boost your immunity, regular exercise is the answer to it. But we are not talking about being an ardent, hard-core gym-junkie; rather exercising in moderate amounts would suffice. Cardiovascular exercises such as walking or swimming, performed 30-45 minutes a day, can prove to be very beneficial.

Including good hygiene habits in your daily routine, such as washing your hands properly, bathing and brushing your teeth daily, etc. can be useful as well. Good sanitary habits can be the most basic way to ward off infections at the germination stage. Keep a hand sanitizer with you all the time. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Best thing for you is papaya and pomegranates. If you need to win over the situation, pl see that kapha vitiation is balanced and antiallergenic herbal combos are taken for se time. For the time being pl take turmeric pure and dry ginger in equal ratio and take with water till you decide for proper treatment in ayurveda.

Hi. Your mother may be in pre or post menopausal phase when because of the hormone fluctuation, body experiences many changes from mood swings to hot flushes. For neck pain: Take homoeopathic medicines Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - both thrice daily. Also, tell her to apply Arnica ointment over the neck area in circular motion gently. For Bronchitis: Bronchitis/ Asthma can be treated with homoeopathic medicines completely, only need to be regular with the medication and avoid those foods/ things to which you are allergic to for sometime. Keep taking your already on going medication, reduce it gradually and slowly once homoeopathic starts acting. Take Bakson's Astha-Aid drops/ 10-15 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice d day for 1 month. Report me back after a month.

Dar. It is important that you treat your condition to strengthen and balance your immunity. By strengthening the digestion, blood quality and circulation, the allergic reactions and feeling of cold (a form of weakness sometimes) can be easily overcome. Regards.

Sir what does anti nuclear antibody. Report positive result means. Range -8.060. Tell me it is normal or about worry.
ANA is antinuclear antibody test done to check autoimmune diseases. In 7-15 % people it is normally present and raised level can also be seen in old age people. In your case you may be suffering from some autoimmune disease since its positive in your case. But to confirm it fully, you have to visit a physician with your report. Regarding any other clarification you can consult me also.

You can go but take possible preventive measures. Take inhalers and also take ginger lemon honey tea with you. It may give relief. Do deep breathing while climbing. It will expand lungs and increase capacity.

Sorry lybrate-user, asthma can't be cured but you can win over asthma by controlling it with regular medication - modern medicine is what I can advice, I do not know of other disciplines of medicine so can't offer advise about them. But keep this in mind that if anyone can claim they can provide asthma cure - it is most probably a lie.

My father has an asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer for long term?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, asthma is preceded by the production of histamines in the blood. Histamine is produced due to the entrance of foreign particles in the body. The triggering cause behind the onset of asthma varies in every patient. A detailed case taking along with some blood test results are required to diagnose the proper underlying cause of asthma. Please conduct a laboratory test of your blood for tc, dc, esr & ige. Revert back with the results & consult me privately via lybrate. In the mean-time you can take homoeopathic mother tincture grindelia robusta q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. If you prefer ayurvedic medicines then you can take ayurvedic arjunarista syrup. Take 20 ml of the aforesaid syrup thrice daily after meals.
