1) Taking Immunice - Immunice releases hundreds of
phytonutrients that act at the molecular level to support your immune
system, vitality, and overall wellness.
Exercising Regularly - Regular exercise elevates the level of
leukocytes, an Immune System cell that fights infection. Exercise
also increases release of endorphins, natural hormones that heighten
your sense of well being and improve sleep quality, both of which have
positive effects on your Immune System. Exertion stimulates the
cardiovascular system, improves blood flow, circulates antibodies,
flushes toxins from muscles and organs, removes germs, and helps keep
the kidneys and endocrine system fully functional.
exercise must be repeated on a near-daily basis so that there is a
cumulative effect that leads to a long-term immune response. Getting
your heart rate up for just 20 minutes three times a week is associated
with increased immune function, and a 30-minute brisk walk five days a
week can help reduce your risk of catching a cold. Walking strengthens
your cardiovascular system and blood flow. Walk ten minutes, three
times a day if you are unable to walk 30 minutes at one time. You can
also do both cardio and light weight training to make your body more
resilient in fighting off and recovering from illness.
3) Increasing Antioxidants Intake - Free radicals cause cell mutations,
damage immune function, and contribute to severe diseases like cancer
and heart blockage. They are produced by the body's own natural
processes, toxins, radiation, and poor digestive function. Unlike a
stable molecule in which every atom in your cell is ringed by pairs of
electrons, free radicals carry an unmated electron that desperately
wants to pair up with another. By snaring an electron from a
neighboring molecule (which then makes that molecule a free radical),
it can set off a chain reaction that leads to unrelentless cellular
damage which wipes out cytokine pathways - disorienting immune system
activities. The antidote for free radicals are antioxidants. When an
antioxidant encounters a free radical, it freely gives up an electron
of its own which satisfies the free radical and stops the out of
control damage. This makes the antioxidant a free radical because it's
now an electron short. However, the chain reaction is stopped as the
newly created free radical made from the antioxidant is very weak and
unlikely to do harm. Antioxidants also support body detoxification by
boosting Glutathione levels. Glutathione turns on apoptosis - the
process in which "bad" mutated cells self-destruct.
a good supply of antioxidants in brightly colored fruits and
vegetables, including berries, citrus fruits, kiwi, apples, red grapes,
kale, onions, spinach, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Other
immune-boosting foods include fresh garlic (which has antiviral and
antibacterial properties) and old-fashioned chicken soup.
Mushroom varieties such as reichi, maitake, and shiitake also have
positive influence on immune function.
4) Increasing Beta-Carotene Intake - Beta-Carotene and other
Carotenoids stimulate immune cells that fight free radicals and fortify
the thymus gland, protecting your body from harmful effects of
stress. It also protects you against cancer by stimulating
macrophages cells to produce tumor necrosis factor (which
kills cancer cells) and increasing the production of T-cell Lymphocytes
and other natural killer cells that attack cancer cells.
Beta-Carotene also reduces the risks of cardiovascular diseases by
preventing fats and cholesterol in the bloodstream from forming
arterial plaques. There is no RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance)
for Beta-Carotene but studies have concluded that at least 3 milligrams
of it daily is necessary to reduce risk of chronic diseases. Good
sources of Beta-Carotene include apricots, asparagus, beets, broccoli,
cantaloupe, carrots, corn, green peppers, kale, mangoes, turnip and
collard greens, nectarines, peaches, pink grapefruit, pumpkin, squash,
spinach, sweet potato, tangerines, tomatoes, and watermelon.
5) Increasing Vitamin C Intake -
Vitamin C helps to increase the number of white blood cells as
part of the Immune System arsenal. It also increases the level of
good cholesterol in your body, reducing the risk of cardiovascular
diseases. The latest research indicates that Vitamin C also
lowers the risk of breast, colon, and prostate cancers. A daily
dosage of 90 mg is recommended. Good supply of Vitamin C can be
obtained from berries, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cantaloupe,
cauliflower, grapefruit, honeydew, kale, kiwi, mangoes, nectarines,
orange, papaya, red, green or yellow peppers, snow peas, sweet potato,
strawberries, and tomatoes.
6) Increasing Vitamin E Intake -
Vitamin E stimulates the production of natural killer cells (immune
cells that destroy germs and cancer cells) and B-cells (immune cells
responsible for producing antibodies that destroy bacteria). It also
reverses some of the decline in immune response caused by aging.
A daily dosage of 100 mg is recommended.Broccoli,
carrots, chard, mustard and turnip greens, mangoes, nuts, papaya,
pumpkin, red peppers, spinach, and sunflower seeds.
7) Increasing Zinc Intake - Zinc
increases the number of infection-fighting T-cells, especially in
elderly people who are often deficient in Zinc, and whose Immune System
often weakens with age. Zinc also helps to reduce incidence of
acute respiratory infections. One meta-analysis that compared
several studies on Zinc found that taking it within 24 hours after the
start of a cold may help to reduce symptoms. A daily dosage of 30
milligrams is recommended. If you are a strict vegetarian, you
may require as much as 50% more dietary Zinc because your body absorbs
less Zinc from plant-based foods. Zinc is found in oysters,
red meat, poultry, beans, nuts, seafood, whole grains, fortified
cereals, and dairy products.
8) Increasing Selenium Intake - Selenium
is found in nearly every cell in the body, though the highest
concentrations are in the kidneys, liver, testes, pancreas and
spleen. It is a potent Immune System booster as it activates
hormonal production of the thyroid gland, increases the number of natural
killer cells, and mobilizes cancer-fighting cells.
It is known for its antioxidant activities which protect your body
against cancer, heart attack, stroke, macular degeneration, cold sores,
shingles and lupus, as well as effects of aging.A daily dosage
of 200 cg is recommended. Among the good sources of Selenium are brazil nuts, tuna, beef,
poultry and fortified breads, and other grain products.
Adequate Sleep - You may have noticed you're more likely to catch a
cold or other infections when you're not getting enough sleep. Fatigue
increases your susceptibility to illness. Adequate restful sleep
rejuvenates our bodies and refreshes our minds. During deep
sleep, your body produces blood cells and raises oxygen levels to
strengthen immune function. Like stress, insomnia elevates
cortisol production which engenders inflammation in your body.
Getting adequate sleep, 7 to 9 hours for adults, is essential for good
10) Practicing Relaxation Techniques - Stress reduction lowers cortisol
levels and improves sleep quality. Studies indicate that people
who meditate regularly enjoy improved Immune System response. In
one experiment, people who meditated over an 8-week period produced
more antibodies to a flu vaccine than people who didn't meditate. And
they still showed an increased Immune System response four months
later. Laughing decreases the levels of stress hormones in the body
while increasing Leukocytes (type of white blood cell that fights
infection). In fact, even just anticipating a funny event can
have a positive effect on your Immune System. A good way to relax is to
do yoga stretches for a few minutes daily. Yoga postures calm and relax
the nervous system and the slow, deep breathing practiced along with
yoga positions invokes a meditative state that relieves stress.
