Smart Steps to Improve Your Overall Wellness and Boost Immune Health
Due to the global pandemic, many people are curious about how they can boost their immune health.
It’s a valid concern – one that’s important whether you’re trying to protect yourself from a dangerous virus or simply gain more energy and reduce your risk of coming down with a cold.
Thankfully, improving your health and wellness can be easy. It just takes a few simple steps.
4 Steps You Can Take to Improve Your Overall Health and Wellness
Dr. Tosk recommends taking these four steps to achieve optimal health.
1. Eat a Nutrient-Dense Diet
To achieve optimal health, pay attention to your nutrient levels. Nutrient deficiencies can lead to depression, anxiety, weight gain, and low immune response.
The more vitamins and minerals you get from natural sources – fresh, whole foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and seeds – the happier your body will be. If necessary vitamin and mineral supplementation can be advantageous. Talk to Dr. Tosk about the many supplements available from his office.
2. Get Plenty of Sleep
You need to sleep for your body to heal and replenish its energy reserves. If you’re struggling with insomnia or simply aren’t getting enough sleep because you’re working, watching TV, etc., your immune health is at risk.
Try to set up a sleep routine and stick with it each evening. Shut off all electronic devices at least an hour before you want to sleep.
If you’re still struggling, talk to your doctor about prescribing a sleep study.
3. Reduce Stress
A 2015 study found that chronic stress results in chronic inflammation in the body. Inflammation can lead to disease development and lowered immune response.
Ways to reduce stress:
- Get plenty of rest
- Exercise consistently throughout the year
- Practice mindfulness
- Try meditation
- Take breaks during work
4. Practice Precautions
Especially now, it’s imperative to practice good hygiene. Wash your hands often, for approximately 20-30 seconds, and try to avoid touching your face.
How Chiropractic Adjustments Can Help Boost Immune Health
Dr. Stephen D. Tosk provides a variety of treatments that can help your body heal. Though his foray into wellness goes beyond basic chiropractic adjustments, they’re still an important part of the program. Keeping your body in proper alignment keeps your blood, cerebrospinal fluid, and lymph flowing, which delivers vital nutrients to your organs and eliminates toxins.
