The human body, like its mechanisms, is extremely strong. Much beyond our wildest imaginations. We humans may have created a false sense of belief that we can regulate complex processes like detox, repair, and healing of our systems as a result of scientific and technological advancements. But our bodies are incredible machines that create 25 million new cells every second, are constantly on the lookout for harmful toxins, and work hard to keep our hearts, livers, and kidneys in peak condition.
The capacity of our bodies to detox, heal, and rejuvenate is inextricably related to their immune systems. Although our bodies continue to perform these roles daily, it is our primary duty to provide the body with the appropriate strata and atmosphere in which to operate. But how do we dissect this to apply specific concepts to improve our health and well-being? Here we are sharing 3 ways to boost your immunity:
Take Enough Sleep
Our bodies go through five stages of sleep as we sleep, during which they rebuild tissue and muscle, clean the system through detox cycles, and create neuronic pathways – in short, they rejuvenate the body and prepare it for another day of work.
Our goal is to go to bed at a set time each night before 11 p.m., get 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep, and wake up at a set time. This habit boosts immunity, and studies show that people who don’t get enough sleep are more susceptible to infections and disease.
Deep Breathing Exercises
When performed frequently and correctly, deep breathing exercises (deep, slow diaphragmatic breathing) will help to repair and heal the vague nerve. The vague nerve, which connects the brain and digestive system, is the longest in the human body. Its signalling pathways, if enhanced, would ensure optimal digestion, absorption, and availability of nutrients, which will increase immunity and our ability to combat disease.
Consumption of Healthy Food
Food that is good for us cannot and must not be prepared using cookie-cutter techniques that aren’t exclusive to “new era” diets. Gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free, and other restrictions apply. They might or might not be appropriate for you. Be aware of and confirm which foods help your digestive system, minimise inflammation (headaches, exhaustion, energy levels, and so on), and probably your weight.
