6 Natural Ways to Boost Your Immune System

Sick season is right around the corner, especially with the weather getting colder every day. While you may be enjoying the nice change, the change can also bring about a lot of sickness. The best way to stay healthy this fall and winter? Boost your immunity! 

Oregano Oil

Oregano oil can help clean out your gut and boost your immune system. It keeps bad bacteria away. The easiest way to consume oregano oil is by ingesting capsules, starting off with 200 mg three times a day. 

Take Care of Your Liver

Your liver plays an important part in keeping your immune system healthy. Your liver flushes out toxins, but it can easily become overloaded from a bad diet and poor lifestyle choices. Help your liver out this season by eating plenty of cruciferous vegetables, such as kale, lettuce, cabbage, and broccoli. 

Avocados for Your Adrenal Glands

Adding a little bit of avocado to your diet each day can support your adrenal functions. Avocados contain essential nutrients and antioxidants to balance your hormones, as well. 

Add a Little Ginger

Ginger has been used medicinally for many centuries. It is believed to warm the body and help breakdown harmful toxins in the body. Ginger can also help keep your lymphatic system clear and healthy. 

Sage for Coughs

Sage helps calm a cough and helps the body remove mucus from the body. Try a drop of sage in warm tea when you feel a cough coming on. 

Get Adjusted

Now that sick season is nearing, it is the time for the whole family to enjoy wellness adjustments. Chiropractic care can fix subluxations and help your spine work optimally. A healthy spine is crucial during cold and flu season because the spine controls all the nerves in the body. Having a healthy spine means that you will have a better working immune system. 

Chiropractic care is safe and effective to prevent sickness for the whole family. It is especially beneficial to children who suffer from several earaches and ear infections during the winter. Bring your whole family to The Joint… the chiropractic place today for wellness adjustments. Trust us, a trip to the chiropractor now is a lot easier and quicker than a trip to the doctor’s office in the middle of cold and flu season.
