We can boost our immunity through supplements, such as Vitamin C, but there’s more to boosting our immunity than that.
In the past, conventional medicine has focused on drugs that destroy the ‘invader’ in one form of another, such as antibiotics, antiviral agents and chemotherapy. Whilst there will always be and has to be a place for conventional medicine, the conventional route can sometimes cause more problems than it solves.
For example, antibiotics can upset the balance of beneficial bacteria that’s normally found in the gut. Antibiotics can also harm the digestive tract.
So how do we boost our immune system from inside?
The simple answer is our state of mind = positivity, exercise and diet. We’re told that exercise is beneficial and of course it is, but what we’re not told is that if we do too much exercise it will suppress the immune system, decrease bone density, a contributing cause of Osteoporosis and may interfere with a woman’s menstrual cycle.
That’s the bad part, the good part is that exercises like T’ai Chi and yoga help to boost our immunity. Anything that affects us, or we have trouble dealing with, or coming to terms with, also suppresses immunity and where we think we’re coping, our body tends to tell us a different story. A key sign that something is wrong.
We have to learn how to cope and deal with what’s thrown at us, deal with psychological issues, but most of all learn how to relax. All these pointers help towards better immunity.
