This isn’t new though, is it?
Do your meditation, go out for a walk, talk to a friend ❤️
Sleep – lack of sleep or insufficient sleep increase inflammation and reduce immune system response.
Supplements and herbs- there are SO MANY that can boost immune system, here are the TOP ones I like:
Probiotics – did you know know that 70% of your immune system is in the gut?
Vitamin D- See my post on Vitamin D, the sunshine hormone and how it is related to immune system.
Astragalus – a Chinese medicine herb, one of the most research herbs in relation to immune system.
Mushrooms such as Cordyceps, Reishi, Maitake & Turkey Tail
Honestly, the list goes on and there is SO much when it comes to Naturopathic Medicine in support of a healthy immune system. Make sure you have a REGULATED health practitioner (such as a licensed Naturopathic Doctor) that is able to work with your medications, interactions and individualize treatment for you!
PS: Please never self prescribe and talk to your ND for proper dosing, interactions check , prevention and whats ideal for YOUR Body and Needs!
