Maintaining immune system health is a combination of efforts physically, mentally and spiritually. When one is off it could have negative effects on immune function.

Stress and the Immune System

Mental and physical stress may have an unwanted effect on your health and wellness. In times of increased stress, hormonal changes are occurring in your body. Adrenaline and cortisol are often released to create a ‘fight or flight’ response. If you do not tend to the situation that is causing you stress, your body may live in this ‘fight or flight’ state for longer than it is accustomed to. Over time, this may result in increased headaches, digestive concerns and on a cellular level may contribute to weakened lymphocyte cells (immune supporting cells).

Abnormal Inflammatory Response and Immune System Function

A healthy digestive tract will properly break down and direct food and supplements consumed to where they need to go in the body. If this system is not functioning properly it is possible that nutrients are not being digested, or more importantly absorbed. Nutritional deficiencies can cause unwanted side effects such as a weakened immune system.

Extreme Tiredness and Immune System Health

Extreme tiredness, or sometimes referred to as fatigue, can be a result of unhealthy diet and exercise. The organ most associated with tiredness is the thyroid. If the thyroid is prevented from making enough of the thyroid hormones due to unhealthy habits in your daily life it may have a negative effect on your overall health and wellness.

Best Way to Build Immune System

If you want to build strong immunity, it all starts with daily habits. Start with small, achievable goals such as drinking an extra glass of water per day or standing up every 20 minutes. These small acts can give you more energy to make bigger impacts to your overall health and wellness.
