Hayfever and flu season can challenge your immune system. No matter what time of year, boosting the immune system is more important than ever. Mary Ann Bough, our chiropractor at Hoosier Family Chiropractic, Inc. has some great ways to keep you feeling good! Stop by and visit our office in Bloomingdale, IN.
Get Plenty of Sleep
When you don't get enough sleep, your body's ability to fight infection decreases. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night to ensure you get enough rest. If you have trouble sleeping because of pain or hayfever, our chiropractor can help.
Eat a Healthy Diet
A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains helps support a healthy immune system. Avoiding processed foods and sugary drinks can also help keep your immune system functioning correctly. Nutrition advice needs to be clarified. Nutrition counseling is one of Dr. Mary Ann's specialties, so call if you need advice.
Exercise isn't just good for your physical health. It keeps your immune system working properly. Yet, too much exercise can adversely affect your immune system. So aim for around 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week.
Chronic stress can weaken your immune system, so it's essential to find ways to manage stress effectively. For example, try relaxation techniques like yoga or meditation, or take some time each day to do something you enjoy. It's so easy to put off the good things in life. So instead, let yourself love a part of every day.
Take Immune-Supportive Supplements
In addition to eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly, several vital supplements can help boost the immune system. Vitamin C, zinc, and probiotics are all great options to consider taking this flu season. Speak with our chiropractor before starting any new supplement regimen to ensure it's right for you.
