Tips to Boost Your Immune System!

The Key to Winter Health: A Strong Immune System

No one wants to be sick, and with the demands of our busy lifestyles today, few of us can afford to miss even one day of work. Maintaining a strong and healthy immune system is essential to good health and wellbeing. Even a slightly weakened response in immune system function can have a major effect on the quality of your life by making you vulnerable to common illnesses, especially in the winter months.

Your immune system is an amazing protection mechanism.

It is designed to defend you against millions of bacteria, microbes, viruses, toxins, and parasites that would love to invade your body. Your immune system works around the clock in thousands of different ways, protecting the body from these constant microscopic invaders, and it does its work largely unnoticed. The immune system is complex, intricate and interesting. One thing that causes us to really notice our immune system is when it fails for some reason; when we feel under the weather, or sick. We also notice it when it does something that has a side effect that we can see or feel. 

What your immune system does for you.

  • Each day you inhale thousands of germs (bacteria and viruses) that are floating in the air. Your immune system deals with all of them without a problem. Occasionally a germ gets past the immune system and you catch a cold, get the flu or worse. A cold or flu is a visible sign that your immune system failed to stop the germ. The fact that you get over the cold or flu is a visible sign that your immune system was able to eliminate the invader after learning about it. If your immune system did nothing, you would never get over a cold or anything else.
  • When a virus or bacteria (also known generically as a germ) invades your body and reproduces, it normally causes problems. Generally, the germ's presence produces some side effect that makes you sick. For example, the strep throat bacteria (Streptococcus) releases a toxin that causes inflammation in your throat.
  • Some bacteria are benign or beneficial (for example, we all have millions of bacteria in our intestines and they help digest food), but many are harmful once they get into the body or the bloodstream. Viral and bacterial infections are by far the most common causes of illness for most people. They cause things like colds, influenza, measles, mumps, etc.
  • Maintaining a strong and healthy immune system is essential. Not only are there serious diseases that can result from a malfunction of the immune system, but even a slightly weakened response in immune system function can have a major effect on the quality of your life by making you vulnerable to common illnesses.
