Can You Strengthen Your ‘Immune System’?

Since we’ve all experienced the impact of COVID in society, the topic of immunity has been on our minds. On average, the disease hit people harder who were already health compromised, obese or have diabetes. But there were some who invested time and effort into their health and fitness who were also challenged. Here are five of the best practices to build your immune system.

  1. Maintain a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. These will provide essential nutrients and antioxidants that support your immune function.
  2. Regular physical activity and workouts boost your circulation, reducing stress and enhancing your immune response.
  3. Prioritise enough sleep to allow your body to repair and rejuvenate. Sleep deprivation can weaken your immunity.
  4. Minimise stress. You can use techniques like meditation, deep breathing (Club Physical now offers ‘Breathwork’ classes with Adam Curtis) or engaging in hobbies. Weight training is a great stress-reducer. But chronic on-going stress suppresses your immune function.
  5. Practice good hygiene. Include regular handwashing to prevent the spread of pathogens and reduce the risk of infections that can also weaken your immune system.

Therefore, the answer is YES, you CAN positively impact your immune system.
