Increase Body's Immune Naturally

The following are some ways that can be done to improve the immune system naturally. Why we choose naturally way? because that is the safest way which does not give any side effects to the body especially over a long period of time.

1. Changing Lifestyle

One of the causes of a person's immunity is weakened is due to the wrong lifestyle. But we have to know what a healthy lifestyle is like? If you still do the bad things below, then you have to change it immediately in order to get your body will be healthier.

Get Enough Sleep 

If currently you have a habit of staying up late and lack of sleep, then please change your habits now! That is not good for your health. There are many people die from exhaustion and lack of sleep. After a day of activities, the body needs relaxation by resting or sleeping to restore body fitness.

For information, adult need at least 7-8 hours of sleep time at night. Whereas younger people (teenagers and children) need longer sleep time, which is around 9-10 hours. We can feel how the body will be very fresh and fit when we wake up in the morning. Our body is not designed to be used continuously. That will weaken the immune system in our body. With enough sleep, it will strengthen the body's immunity in the face of disease.

Avoid Stress

How many healthy people suddenly get sick when they have a lot of thoughts and stress. Stress can cause an imbalance of immune cell function. So it is very important for us to manage stress.

If we already feel stressed, we can go out to get relax, see new things so that the mind becomes fresher. Doing fun and exciting things will also make the mind more relaxed, like watching TV, reading books, meeting a friends and other fun things.

Light Exercise

Try to be diligent in exercising (even if it's a light exercise) so that the body becomes healthier. It does not have to be heavy exercise, but light exercise for 30 minutes every day in boosting the immune system.

Light exercise that is recommended is walking. This sport we can do it without having to spend special time. As I have discussed in : Little thing that will improve your health. You can place your vehicle parking location farther from your work location, so it will force you to walk more. It's easy, right?

2. Change Your Diet 

Eat more plant foods (Vegetables and Fruits)

Plant foods such as fruits and vegetables are very good for the body. Vegetables and fruits are rich in anti-oxidants which is very helpful facing dangerous pathogens.

When free radicals enter the body and accumulate in a large numbers, then it can cause inflammation. Anti-oxidants in the vegetables and fruit can help reduce the effects of inflammation.

Fiber contained in fruits and vegetables are also feeding the good bacteria in the gut. It will nourish good bactery in our gut.

Vegetables and fruits also contain lots of vitamin C which is very good for the body.

Eat More Healthy Fat

Sometimes we do not realize that the foods we consume daily contain a lot of bad fats. What is bad fat? Bad fat is fat that can produce bad cholesterol that triggers heart disease. Bad fats are usually found in meat fat, margarine and coconut oil. Consumption that is not excessive can reduce levels of bad fat in the body.

While healthy fats are good fats for our body. This fat is found in nuts, green leafy vegetables, olive oil, avocados, soy, tuna and salmon.

Healthy fats have anti-inflammatory properties that help the body fight bacteria and viruses.

Limit Your Sugar Comsumption

Consuming sugar is actually not prohibited, as long as it is within reasonable limits. However, what if someone has a habit of consuming too much sugar? this will potentially lead to obesity and diabetes.

The limits on consuming sugar between men and women are basically different. Similarly, consumption limits in adolescents and children. For women, the daily sugar intake is usually 24 grams (or the equivalent of 6 teaspoons), whereas in adult men, the daily sugar intake is 36 grams (or the equivalent of 9 teaspoons). While the daily sugar intake in adolescents is below 20 grams (or 5 teaspoons).

If someone consumes more sugar than that limit, then the threat is a serious health problem. The solution is to limit our daily sugar consumption, so that the immune system becomes optimal.

Drinking Enough Water

Make sure our bodies are hydrated by consuming enough water. The general rule is to drink when you are thirsty and stop drinking when you are no longer thirsty. By increasing drinking water, it does not specifically protect you from bacteria and viruses, but drinking enough water is very important for general health.

The more active you are at work or on the move, the more fluid will come out of your body, and the need for drinking will increase. However, that does not mean if you rarely move outside, then you need a little liquid. 

Avoid Cigarettes and Alcohol

To keep your body healthy, it is important to always avoid all the things that can damage your body. If consumed in excess, cigarettes and alcohol are among of them. Smokers have a high risk of lung infections including bronchitis and pneumonia. If the smoker often consumes alcohol, the risk will more increase. My advice, please avoid smoking and alcohol in order to make our bodies become healthier and fitter.
