The immune system is designed to stay functional, but modern society provides too many ways to sabotage it. In the post “Immune system decimators”, the decimators are listed, and some of them are discussed in later posts:
If you want to know what to do to overcome the destructive work that can be done to your immune system, read on…
Here are ten must-dos to keep your immune system functioning properly:
- Food first:
Less sugar, more salads. Less white flour, more lentils. Less margarine, more water and soup. Less processed meats and cheeses, more seeds. Less soft drinks, more whole grains.
- Environmental hazards:
Switch to natural cleansers and remove cleaning products that contain ingredients listed in the environmental hazards post. Limit dry cleaning. Keep smartphones and smart devices farther from your body. Avoid cigarette smoke and cut back if you smoke. Use natural beauty products. Avoid sunscreen products that are not safe.
Each person needs to understand his or her sleep needs and be mindful to fulfill them. (There are other blog posts about sleep.)
Working through past traumas is very important. When the current time is traumatic, steps to handle the trauma are very important.
- Injury from drugs:
Carefully check labels of prescription and nonprescription drugs to be aware of side effects and possible contraindications. Addictions are difficult to handle alone and require resolve and support from others: for addictions to legal or illegal drugs, aim to get help.
- Loud sounds:
Loud sounds are detrimental to the immune system, especially for children. Keep this fact in mind as you live your life.
- Alcoholic beverages:
Drinking alcoholic beverages in moderation and at a slow pace has little effect on health, unless there are any of these circumstances: tendency towards addiction in the family, when autoimmune conditions are suspected or confirmed, when overconsumption of sweets or insulin resistance are occurring, when alcoholic beverages are forced on a person who doesn’t want them. Alcoholism, like addiction to drugs, is difficult to handle alone.
There are more ways to build up the immune system; however, the must-dos listed above have a very big effect.
