Living during a global pandemic has put the immune system into the spotlight.
People want to boost the health of their immune system so they can avoid getting sick. Thankfully, there are ways you can boost your immunity – and your Orlando chiropractor can help!
Ready to improve your health? Try these four steps.
All systems of your body rely on sleep to function properly, including your immune system. While you sleep, your body goes through a repair and detoxification process.
Unfortunately, when we’re stressed or our lives are busy, sleep is often the first thing to go out the window. To get back into a better routine, try:
Stress lowers the immune response very quickly. Boost it by reducing stress levels, including:
Don’t smoke or use tobacco. Drink alcohol in moderation.
A sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy diet will take a toll on your immune system. Try to exercise at least 30 minutes each day. Go for a stroll, lift some weights, try stretching or yoga, or try a dance class.
Additionally, reduce processed foods and eat fresh, nutrient-dense foods.
Dr. David Shaw takes a whole person approach to chiropractic care. He encourages practicing good posture and ergonomics (both of which reduce stress on your body, yet another way to help bolster immune health). Additionally, he recommends lifestyle and dietary changes, and will introduce you to vitamin and mineral supplements that promote health.
Many people think their healthcare team consists solely of their primary care physician. Having an Orlando chiropractor on your team provides multiple benefits. The biggest is that Dr. Shaw will help you take steps to prevent illness and injury. Putting the tips recommended for better ergonomics or building up your immune system into practice will benefit you now and well into the future.
