15 Ways to Support Your Immune System (Naturally!)
The tail-end of Winter often feels like a final sprint of fortitude for our immune systems, and this is especially true given the widespread worry about a major global health concern right now.
From “normal” colds and flu to a novel virus this year, our greatest weapon against illness is our own complex and wonderful immune system.
Our best efforts, therefore, are spent to protect and support your immune system, which is our body’s natural way of keeping ourselves healthy and strong.
It’s also worth noting that Dr. Joe Dispenza’s research clearly shows that being in a state of fear or worry can and does have a measurable adverse effect on our DNA by suppressing our body’s immune response.
So how do we balance reasonable caution, mindful prevention, and the very best hygiene practices that we can?
It’s time to get into ACTION to help yourself more confidently navigate the current state of global health affairs. The main goal is to optimize and support your immune system during this challenging season.
We are actively practicing each of these tips in our homes, with our families:
1 Wash your hands properly
This means for 20 seconds, vigorously, front and back, with soap and water. You can try reciting a poem, chant, or prayer to make sure you’re washing for the recommended amount of time. Singing the ABCs, or even the chorus of Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” also fits the 20-second time frame. 🙂
Change your hand towels daily (or use disposables), and avoid hand dryers when in public restrooms. Studies show that hot-air hand dryers are not as sanitary as we may think!
