How Can You Strengthen Your Immune System?

 

Good Morning to Everyone,

I want to take a moment to talk about immunity. Although, we are not in the grips of cold and flu season, I have been running into many folks suffering from spring & summer colds!

Did you know that the vast majority of medical experts estimate over 90% of illness, disease and fatigue are due to stress? Stress compromises our immune system welcoming illness into our bodies. Whether it’s good stress (major life changes, like weddings, graduation, moving across the country) or busy, deadlines at work kinds of stress.

While most people know to take care of themselves by taking vitamins (typically major vitamin C) during this time, there is more to the formula. It is also a stellar idea to eat vitamin-rich vegetables that are so abundant this time of year. Eating in season. And summer is a season of abundance of fresh fruits & veggies. Hydration is also a big one. When the heat kicks up, we should be kicking up our water intake as well.

               A Boost to Immune System Support

 

But, I want to set forth to you that massage has benefits that far outreach those that have been so marketed to this point. The incredible increase in circulation provided immediately, and the secondary benefits in the endocrine, muscular, nervous systems, with continued benefits for the days that follow, are incredibly important to our immune system. There are more and more studies showing the benefits of massage for specific targeted ailments being published on a regular basis.

All of those vital nutrients that we consume and the oxygen we take in are so much more effectively circulated to all our systems in our bodies. It’s not just about feeling good & relaxing, the healing you give yourself with a massage is truly amazing. It is an essential part of any wellness program, just like nutrition and an exercise regimen. With each improvement in any of these areas, you raise your body and mind performance. All of your systems benefit, in a domino type effect, secondary to that boost in circulation. The body’s energy centers, meridians, and/or Chakras are also benefited by massage. The Relaxation response that is initiated, is the healing/recovery phase of the Autonomic Nervous System. This Natural healing is the most effective kind.

Wishing you Stellar Health!!
