Do these things to boost your immune system

Here are a few tips to strengthen your immune system:

Get adjusted:
You know this one already. There is significant improvement in nerve function and immune function when you get adjusted. One study showed a 48% increase in immune response cells in those being adjusted vs. those not being adjusted.

Take a Vitamin D3 supplement:
The autumn days are getting shorter and we have less access to sunlight. It is well established that sunshine is a significant source of vitamin D as ultraviolet B rays from sunlight trigger vitamin D3 manufacture in the skin. Vitamin D has a remarkable role to play in your health, influencing nearly 3,000 of your 25,000 genes, and playing a critical role in your immune response, including helping your body produce over 200 antimicrobial chemicals that help fight all sorts of infections.

Make bone broth:
It is the job of a healthy immune system to hunt pathogenic cells out and destroy them before they get out of hand. Bone broth contains particular substances that are vital in this process. First of all, bone broth contains the amino acids arginine (essential for immune system and liver function), glutamine (which helps with metabolism), and glycine (which aids in glutathione production and also quality of sleep). Bone marrow that liquefies over time as your soup simmers is especially beneficial to the immune system. This marrow will contain lipids, especially alkylglycerols, which are vital for the production of white blood cells. Alkyglycerols also appear in colostrum from mother’s milk and have been found to control cancer tumor cell growth.

Get enough sleep:
When we sleep, our brains undergo a mop-up process that removes waste products that result from normal nerve activity and metabolism. High tech imaging was used to look deep into the brains of mice (considered surprisingly very similar to human brains) and researchers discovered that the brain functions differently while asleep than awake, ridding itself of accumulated proteins/waste at a much faster rate. The waste clean-up is 10 times (!) more active while sleeping than awake and its primary purpose is to remove protein plaques that contribute to nerve degeneration.

Drink lots of water:
You already know this one. Do it. Use a refillable water bottle to make sure you’re drinking lots.
