Build your Immune System

Some good reasons for boosting your immune system:

  • It determines how fast you age.
  • It fights off the viruses, bacteria and other organisms which try to attack you and cause illness, from the common ones that cause colds and thrush, to the rarer but often more deadly ones like meningitis and AIDS.
  • It empties your body’s “dustbin” every day, getting rid of dead cells, dead invaders and toxic chemicals.
  • Your immune system offers protection from radiation and chemical pollutants.
  • Left to deteriorate, your immune system could lose control and cause allergy problems or auto-immune diseases like arthritis.
  • With a struggling immune system, you are ill more often, more seriously, and for longer.
  • With a strong immune system, you are most invincible and should be able to lead a long, healthy and active life.

Nutrients found naturally in our food are often no longer sufficient to enable our immune systems to cope efficiently. There are many enemies to a healthy, efficient immune system and you cannot avoid them all.  As in any war, the fewer enemies you have attacking you at any one time, the more, likely you are to remain on top.

What you can take to boost your immune system

Tip: Exercise plays a very important role in keeping your immune system strong and chi-generating exercises have been known to be highly effective at a strong mind body and soul which is balanced and well. Such exercises are pilates, yoga, psychocalisthenics.
