Quirky and Easy Methods to Boost Your Immune System
Your immune system is what keeps you safe from many disease-causing microorganisms. Boosting your immune system may seem like a long and boring process, yet there are methods that will make the process much more bearable. Conquering the cold and flu season never seemed so fun and quirky, writes “Women’s Health” magazine.
According to the magazine, the following methods will make you forget about ever experiencing cold.
Sing it Out
Singing and listening to music for just half an hour is proven to lower cortisol levels, which is a stress hormone that negatively impacts your immune function. Next time you feel dorky for singing alone in the car on your ride home or in the shower, you should realize that you’re actually benefiting your health.
Order some rolls with salmon or tuna, the fatty acids they contain are rich in omega-3. This will restrain inflammation. The addition of ginger and wasabi will help to fight the germs and clear out your nasal passages. Who knew a tasty meal could also help with your immune system.
Ever tried ending your showers with a cold spell? Well, you better think of starting to do so as studies found that people who do so are less likely to develop flu symptoms. Just try ending your shower session by standing under cold water for 30 seconds.
Visit the Sick
Our bodies have adapted to automatically react when faced with germs. One study found that upon viewing photos of sick people in the act of coughing and sneezing, people’s immune systems rallied big time as a response mechanism.
