Immune system enhancement is perhaps the most important and easily attainable health outcome from naturopathic doctors. A robust immune system not only reduces susceptibility to colds, flu and allergies, but it also decrease the chances of more serious illnesses.
Natural Supplements to boost immune function:
The integrative team at Health Momentum uses numerous tools and therapies, proven to improve immune function and decrease infection rates. Herbs and specific vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin D, zinc and ashwaganda can play a key role in supporting the immune response.
Diet & Nutrition for boost immune function:
The intake of a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables is a central part of immune health. A good diet helps to reduce the occurrence of colds and flues and decreases the risk of autoimmune conditions. An immune boosting diet coupled with immune boosting herbs can be particularly effective in warding off colds, flu and illness.
Healthy Mindfulness based techniques for stress reduction to reduce colds and flues:
Chronic high levels of stress can cause elevated cortisol, which can lead to significant impairment of the immune system. Stress management through various techniques such as adrenal support, herbal support, deep belly breathing, and counseling can help calm the nervous system and help reduce cortisol levels, thereby improving the immune system.
