Holistic Health Practices for a Healthy Immune System: 5 Natural Ways to Boost Immunity

Keeping our immune system strong is a key to staying healthy and beating all kinds of illness, including COVID-19Holistic health practices have been proven to help boost your immune system. I recommend these health and wellness immune-system boosters:

  • Get enough sleep. Sleep and the circadian system exert a strong regulatory influence on immune functions, while lack of quality sleep can lead to chronic low-grade inflammation and produce immunodeficiency, both of which have detrimental effects on health. The importance of sleep in every aspect of your health can’t be overstated. Make sure you’re getting around seven to nine hours of sleep most nights. Rest is a chance for the body to regenerate and can be a natural way to heal yourself every night. Tips: Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time daily. Make your room darker and quieter. Limit screen time a few hours before bed.
  • Get enough vitamins. Research has shown that supplementing with certain vitamins, minerals, herbs and other substances can improve immune response and potentially protect against illness. Vitamins that help boost the immune system include vitamin C, an antioxidant found in citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruits, as well as strawberries, kale, spinach and broccoli; vitamin B6 found in spinach and other dark green vegetables, chickpeas and fish; vitamin E: found in nuts such as almonds and seeds such as pumpkin and sunflower seeds; vitamin D; and zinc.
