How to Boost your Immune System!
With a worldwide health crisis on our hands what we need to wake up to is that many people have compromised immune systems and are suffering unnecessarily because of it. In this blog post, we want to give you a general overview of how to strengthen your immune system and some specific tools we use for quick positive results.
Small changes equal big gains when it comes to your body’s natural defenses. Remove the negative and add in the positive and you have the right recipe for effective personal health development. Each area of improvement you can make is something that can be researched and discussed in depth.
This means that there are perhaps 2-3 areas that you would benefit greatly from becoming more knowledgeable of and adept at. We can not cover all the specific areas that relate to the immune system, but we can give you a blueprint for you to become aware of which ones are right for you. Once you locate them, we can give you more direct advice on what to do practically.
Let’s take a look at some good general things to know about improving your immune system function.
It can be a bit daunting to begin learning about the immune system because there is so much medical literature and opinions on the best way to go about it. Don’t let that discourage you.
Most things that relate to the immune system are down-to-earth common sense, as you will see. Many of the things we will recommend you already know are good for you, but you might not have known how directly it affects your immune system.
That is why we recommend correlating your immune system directly to your lifestyle. If you are living an unhealthy lifestyle, then your immune system will suffer. If you begin to improve your way of life, your immune system will follow suit. Now, how easy is that! Pretty easy if you ask us!
This includes all the foundations, and it is in the foundations where the real big gains are to be found. Nutrition, diet, exercise, movement, and sleep are all crucial to having your immune system to be ready for anything.
This simple change in outlook is perhaps the single most effective way to know where to start! Later on, when we find more specific issues we can also start going more in-depth about your specific areas of focus.
Body, Mind, and Spirit
We often speak about the connection between body, mind, and spirit, and for good reason. When it comes to the immune system, understanding this connection begins to show its true value. When we work on our being with a holistic approach, the immune system gets a boost and support from multiple sources at the same time.
Being in good shape physically is an obvious criterion for the body to be in a good state. This means that one of the best places for you to start is to look at if you have some obvious health issues that you have been neglecting. The immune system is not as mysterious as it might seem, take care of and heal any issues with your body.
When it comes to the mind and its role in connection to the immune system, we can look at emotional balance and stress as two good indicators of how we are doing overall. If you live a stressful lifestyle or are often feeling emotionally turmoiled, then mindfulness practice or perhaps yoga will have a positive effect. In general, the more active your mind is, the less harmonious your body will be, this has a direct negative impact on the body’s natural functions.
For the body, mind, and emotions to feel peaceful, happy, and strong we also need to have a sense of purpose in life. This is where we like to talk about how your spirit fits into your life and lifestyle. When your spirit is strong, you will feel full of vitality, creativity, and motivation. If you are instead feeling generally overwhelmed, lethargic, or lack motivation there is a big chance you are not living your life in accordance with your inner truth.
Maybe it is time to make some changes? Can you envision a new lifestyle that would fit you better? Perhaps now is the time to make those changes.

Using specific natural and organic herbs is a powerful way to give your immune system a real boost! When you combine the overall lifestyle changes with a herbal protocol, you have a great combination working for you. We want to share some of the most common herbs and spices you can use daily to support your immune system.

If lifestyle is the general area where improvements are to be made and the connection of body, mind, and spirit needs to be aligned, then the best place to start is where you struggle the most. If you imagine that your immune system is like a ship sailing over the waters of life, then anything that you are struggling with is like a hole in the hull. This is where most of your precious vital energy is leaking out.
If you want to strengthen your immune system and you have a glaringly obvious area you need to improve or heal then that is not bad news! It only means that you are fortunate to know where you have an opportunity to improve. It has been said that awareness is the greatest catalyst for change and this quote holds so much truth in it.
Becoming aware of something you can make better about yourself is a diamond in the rough, not something to beat yourself up about. This also means that you more than likely know where you need to put your attention and dedication when it comes to your immune system. If you are aware of what your first challenge is but don’t know how to get started, no problem!
