1. Wash your hands often and thoroughly

According to the CDC, this involves five simple and effective steps (Wet, Lather, Scrub, Rinse, Dry) you can take to reduce the spread of viral and respiratory illness so you can stay healthy! Hand sanitizing is also an effective way to kill those same bad germs, while less harsh on your skin.

2. Immune Booster Kit

This is HUGE. Many of the nutrients your body needs to support your immune system are difficult to get in normal food portions, so adding the correct vitamin or supplement to your diet will help. This “Immune Booster Kit” contains our top 5 recommended anti-viral supplements but will require a no-charge consultation to ensure they are the right fit for you.

3. Stay Hydrated

A hydrated body is a healthy body. For example, dry sinus passages make you more susceptible to airborne illness. A good rule of thumb is to divide your body weight in half, and use that number as a guideline for the number of fluid ounces of water you should consume per day.

4. Sleep a minimum of 7 hours per night

A sleep deprived immune system is not at peak performance. Studies suggest that those who get at least 7 hours of sleep per night where 4.2 times less likely to catch a virus like the common cold.

5. Spinal Adjustments

Spinal adjustments have been shown to boost immune function because they serve to correct the spinal misalignments that cause neuro dysfunction. Even one adjustment can bring about an immediate immune boost. Click above or call for this no charge consultation and we will do our best to get you in immediately.

6. Infrared Saunas

Infrared saunas raise core body temperature, helping to keep the immune system strong and in good working order. Spending time in an infrared sauna can help draw toxins out of the body, lower blood pressure and reduce stress, all factors in immune health.

7. Exercise regularly

Studies suggest that those who exercise even moderately can see benefits. Researchers found that regular walking may lead to a higher number of white blood cells, which fight infections.

8. Anti-Viral Foods

Consuming foods like garlic, elderberry or green tea can support immune health.

9. Acupuncture

Acupuncture can strengthen a weakened immune system by increasing red and white cell counts, T-cell count and enhancing humoral and cellular immunity in patients with immune-related illness.

10. Bone Broth

Bone broth has been shown to help seal openings in the gut that may lead to an overactive and eventually weakened immune system. Bone broth is easy for the body to absorb, can help heal and seal the gut and also has anti-inflammatory properties to boot!
