Incorporating 5 Essentials™

Immune Boost Perspective

If the immune system protects the body from disease, why do some people get sick? The immune system is a strong defense against viruses, but there are times when infection still may occur. Oftentimes, infection is a result of a weakened immune system that was not able to fight off the virus before it occurred. (1)
However, in order for the immune system to do its job, it must be supported and strengthened with healthy lifestyle practices. 

 Empower your natural immune system and restore the wisdom of the body by implementing these simple lifestyle choices.
Core Chiropractic

Core Chiropractic

  • Maintain regular chiropractic care. One study found that patients who maintained chiropractic care for at least five years had a 200% stronger immune system than patients who were not under chiropractic care.(2)

  • Practice a diligent homecare routine. The first step to helping the body fight infection is to remove interference in the spine. (3) Continuing to practice your customized homecare routine can help remove interference and keep your spine in alignment.

Nutrition

Nutrition

  • Consume selenium-rich foods, such as cold water, wild-caught fish, beef, and eggs. A deficiency in selenium has been shown to correspond to a weakened immune system.(4)

  • Avoid added sugars. Added sugars are found in more foods than you think, but sugar binds to proteins through a process called glycation. (5) During glycation, harmful compounds known as AGEs are produced, which can weaken the immune system. (6)

  • Consume zinc-rich foods, such as seeds, grass-fed meats, and beans. Zinc is an essential mineral needed for a variety of processes. Research shows that low levels of zinc in the body may make you more susceptible to adverse effects from viruses. (7)

  • Drink plenty of water. Drinking water helps ensure immune-supporting nutrients are being transported to organs. It alsohelps promote natural detoxification. (8) Aim to drink at least ½ of your body weight in ounces of water daily.

  • Incorporate foods high in vitamin A and vitamin C, like red bell peppers, carrots, and sweet potatoes. Vitamin A and C can both act as antioxidants to help protect cells from free radicals and help your body fight viruses. (9)

  • Focus on healthy fats and proteins, such as grass-fed, organic meats, avocados, and raw nuts and seeds. These types of foods are nutrient powerhouses, which can help support gut health and reduce inflammation for a healthy immune response. (10)

  • Vitamin D3is critical for immune health but is not easily found in food sources. Low amounts can increase the risk of developing many immune-related problems. Daily dosage of vitamin D3 is clinically practiced often; one study found that daily oral dosing of vitamin D3 using 5000 to 50,000 IUs is safe and does not have any adverse side effects. (11) (12) (13)

Mindset

Mindset

  • Get 7 - 9 hours of quality sleep per night. (14) Sleep is essential to restoration and healing. During sleep, the body releases cytokines, which are proteins that help create an immune response to infection. (15) This process makes adequate sleep essential for enhanced protection from viruses.

  • Turn off the news. In our current times, the news only causes more stress and worry. Everywhere you turn there’s another negative event happening and positivity is few and far between. However, stress only weakens the immune system even more. (16) Instead of watching the news, try reading a book, listening to a podcast, or finding a positive activity to keep your mind at ease.

  • Keep a positive outlook. Stressing about exposure to viruses only weakens the body rather than building it up. (16) Try stress management techniques like breathing exercises, journaling, or stretching to help keep your mindset positive and immune system strong.

Oxygen and Exercise

Oxygen & Exercise

  • Spend time outdoors. Vitamin D is essential for immune support.(17) Vitamin D is oftentimes referred to as “the sunshine vitamin” because the skin makes vitamin D from cholesterol when exposed to sunlight. (17) Because it’s not commonly found in foods, sunlight is an ideal way to receive vitamin D. Aim to spend about 15 minutes in the sun 3x per week.

  • Exercise for at least 30 minutes, 3-4 times a week. Exercise promotes immunity by encouraging white blood cells to fight infection. (18) Try bike riding, walking, or creative, in-home exercises to enhance your workout routine.


    Please consult with your healthcare practitioner before starting any exercise program.


Minimize Toxins

Minimize Toxins

  • Support your body’s natural detoxification. Glutathione is the body’s most powerful antioxidant, and a deficiency inglutathione may make you more susceptible to illness and disease. (19) You can help promote glutathione production by eating quality, nutritious foods, getting enough sleep, and taking supplements such as NAC.

  • Look out for hidden toxins. Toxins, such as BPA, phthalates, and glyphosate can be hidden in your home, your food, your water, and more. These toxins can disrupt hormone production and influence immune response. (20) Take action by switching to BPA-free plastics, choosing natural cleaners, and avoiding processed foods.

  •  Try to avoid “symptom reducers”. Certain products may market themselves as illness remedies, but these products usually only target symptoms rather than healing. (21) Many of these products also contain toxic and harmful ingredients, causing side effects such as insomnia, drowsiness, and elevated heart rate. (21)
