Every act of kindness on your part is a boost to your own immune system.
- Marianne Williamson -
When you feel a little unwell what do you do? How do you react? Do you check in with yourself or do you check in with someone else? Do you ever contemplate checking in with your immune system and asking if there is anything you can do to support it? Just out of curiosity ...
... when was the last time you checked in with your immune system?
Your immune system is a complex network of cells, organs, and glands that communicate with each other energetically. Their task is to protect your physical body against what it sees as 'foreign' intruders. When the communication is flowing uninterrupted that means that your energy is flowing uniterrupted and your immune system can deal with infections caused by viruses, bacteria, mould, fungus, and parasites. When that communication system starts breaking down your immune system is no longer in a balanced state, and dis-ease can manifest in the form of fatigue, muscle ache, digestive upsets, colds, flu, and even cancer.
Your immune system works hard to protect you.
How hard do you work to support it?
Three Lifestyle Tips To Strengthen Your Immune System
1. Get Enough Sleep
Studies show that people who don't get quality sleep, or enough sleep are more likely to get sick after being exposed to a virus, such as a common cold virus. a lack of sleep can also affect how fast you recover if you do get sick (1)
2. Keep Yourself Hydrated
Water is essential to life. In some organisms, up to 90% of their body weight comes from water. For the human adult body, it is up to 60%. According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158:-
the brain and heart are composed of about 73% water,
the lungs are about 83% water,
the skin contains about 64% water, and
the bones contain about 31%
3. Have A Good Laugh
When was the last time you had a good laugh? In 1976, Norman Cousins published an article in the New England Journal of Medicine extolling the potential medicinal benefits of laughter and humour. Dr. Gulshan Sethi, head of cardiothoracic surgery at the Tucson Medical Center and faculty at the University of Arizona’s Center for Integrative Medicine says that:
“Laughter activates the body’s natural relaxation response. It’s like internal jogging, providing a good massage to all internal organs while also toning abdominal muscles,”
Laughter has amazing healing qualities. It strengthens your immune system, reduces stress, lightens your mood, and strengthens your connection to yourself and others.
Your immune system is crucial to your overall health and wellbeing. It is your very own defense system designed to protect you from disease and infection, and help you to recover when you do get sick.
The stronger your immune system,
the stronger your protection against all pathogens.
From an energetic perspective, when the immune system is 'out of whack' it is no longer in a state of homeostasis. At the root cause and source of this unbalanced state are underlying energetic imbalances, most of which will be trapped emotions.
