5 Natural Ways to Boost your Immune System

Dr. Anthony Ho

Living in a global pandemic hasn’t been easy. Aside from the obvious worry of falling ill with the Coronavirus, there has been a lot of stress about the state of our society as a whole. At some point, we’ve all felt the overwhelming uncertainty of what our future may hold. Stress is an experience everyone is familiar with, but the stress response that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused has felt more extraordinary than usual. That being said, it’s important to know that stress can actually lower your immune system.

Your immune system is crucial in keeping you healthy and fighting off any bacteria, viruses, or other foreign microbes that may cause you harm. Without you even thinking about it, your immune system is working around the clock to ensure that all is well and balanced throughout your body. When you’re stressed out, the hormones cortisol and adrenaline are released into your bloodstream. These hormones trigger your “fight or flight” response, and have been known to cause inflammation in the body if released too much. 

In a global pandemic, a healthy immune system is definitely something to strive for. It can protect you from getting sick from the viruses and bacteria out in the world — even the Coronavirus. A healthy immune system can ensure that if you do catch a bug and get sick, you can quickly recover and not experience other potentially dangerous symptoms. 

So as working from home and leaving the house with your phone, wallet, keys and face mask becomes the new normal, it’s important to remember that the best thing you can do for your health during this time is to relax and take care of your immune system. This can at least eliminate the stress of fearing that you may get too sick. Less stress and a good immune system will take you a long way into the future — uncertain or not.

There are many ways to boost your immune system through preventative care so that it can continue to protect your health and wellbeing. 

1) Immunity IV Drip

IV Therapy is becoming increasingly popular amongst people who want better health and wellness. It is a surefire way to get all the vitamins and minerals necessary for optimal health. Not only is an IV Drip loaded with nutrients that have been proven to improve your health, but it can also be a very relaxing and pleasant experience. 

We all know that Vitamin C is great when you’re sick. That’s why Drip Doctors created an IV Treatment called The Immunity Drip — loaded with immune-boosting properties like high dose Vitamin C, B vitamins, and Zinc combined with nutrients that support your immune system in fighting illnesses. Not only that, but it also provides your body with 1 Liter of water, giving you maximum hydration. All in all, the Immunity Drip is a recipe for increased health and a great immune system.

Drip Doctors can even bring the Immunity Drip to you with their In-Home IV Therapy Options.

2) Rest

Before quarantine, rest was something that most people resisted. Unfortunately, our society has made rest equivalent to laziness and unproductivity. You may have even felt guilty resting while on quarantine. If so, you’re not alone. 

In reality, rest is actually really good for your health. When you’re sick, you need to rest in order to allow your immune system to focus solely on fighting the cold from within. When you’re in good health, your immune system is still constantly working to maintain balance in your body. Allowing yourself to rest and relax will support your body in healing itself the best way it can. Plus, what a great excuse to catch up on some binge-watching or to finish that book you’ve been putting off?

3) Get a Booster Shot

Booster shots are a quick and efficient way to get vitamins and minerals in your body. This method of vitamin intake is more effective than taking them orally because the vitamins go directly into your bloodstream and don’t have to bypass your stomach. When you take an oral vitamin, you actually don’t get the dosage that you think you do. This is because the vitamin has to pass through your digestive system before it is released into your blood, losing some of its potency along the way.

Drip Doctors has a variety of Booster Shots available that support immune strength, like the Vitamin C Booster Shot, Glutathione Booster Shot, or Vitamin D3 Booster Shot! Not many people think of immune boosting when they think of Vitamin D3, but it is actually a great addition to your immune health! In fact, Vitamin D3 helps balance your body’s immune response, and lack of this vitamin has been linked to autoimmune conditions and heightened susceptibility to infections.

Whichever one you choose, a booster shot is a 1 and done method to get some extra immune-boosting vitamins into your body!

4) Eat More Veggies

Ah, the old health trick that we all know we should do but don’t always follow through. Perhaps a global pandemic can motivate us to put some more green on our plates. After all, vegetables are the universal key to health and wellness. If you’re not big on veggies but you want a healthier immune system, try adding in one or two of the below into your diet. These are the vegetables known to improve immune health. A little change can go a long way when it comes to your health, so finding a couple of new veggies that you like can be a great immune system booster. 

  • Red Bell Peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Turmeric Root
  • Spinach

 

5) Take a Peptide Supplement (Thymosin Alpha-1)

Peptides are a type of amino acid that is naturally produced in the body. There are certain peptides that are linked to the immune system, such as Thymosin Alpha-1. This particular peptide is found in the Thymus, the gland that regulates your immune system. Taking a Thymosin Alpha-1 supplement has been proven to increase immune function and decrease illnesses like the cold and flu.

This peptide is given to clients to support their immune system in fighting off infections from viruses, bacteria, and even cancerous cells. It helps the T-Cells in your immune system function properly, increasing their strength and helping reduce inflammation. 

Treating your body to immune boosting therapies like vitamins, minerals, good food and rest is so good for your health. As we move into a world where people are more aware of their own health and protecting it, you’re well-off knowing how best to do that. Preventative care will ensure that even if you do happen to catch a virus or bacterial infection, your body will be well-equipped to handle the situation and protect your health. Drip Doctors is an incredible resource for preventative care, and you can contact them any time to find out how they can help you take care of your immune system.
