Tips on how to take control of your health by improving your immune system first:

Immune System Health and Support in Edina, MN
  1. Eat smaller meals as often as 3 to 6 times a day.
    Good news - food is your friend! Specifically foods such as
    • fresh fruits and vegetables
    • lean meat, seafood and poultry
    Eat 3 meals a day or 6 smaller meals each day, every day to help improve your immune health.
  2. It's easy as C, D, E: incorporate vitamins C, D, and E into your daily diet.
    Vitamin C is found in many citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, and grapefruit but is also found in strawberries and bell peppers. Vitamin E is found in nuts but also in many of the oils you use when cooking, like olive oil. Vitamin D is found in certain fortified foods like milk and yogurt and in fish like salmon.
  3. Get regular, moderate exercise.
    You don't need to spend hours a day on a treadmill to get the kind of exercise that will improve your immune health. Studies show you simply need 2.5 hours of exercise a week, which breaks down to around 20 minutes of activity a day. Moderate exercise includes brisk walking (like walking your dog or striding to the bus stop), raking leaves, swimming, and so on. Take advantage of exercise time in the home by doing crunches during television commercial breaks or making housework lively by playing dance music while cleaning.
  4. Go to bed.
    Getting sleep might be easier said than done, but busy people can help place importance on sleep by setting aside time into their schedule for rest and relaxation. Warm up for sleep by taking a bath or reading under a soft light. Light candles with soothing scents like lavender or vanilla in your bedroom, or spray your pillowcases with similar calming scents. Getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night is best for boosting your immune system health.
  5. Choose flavonoid foods.
    Flavonoids are foods with antioxidants, like blueberries, bananas, and tea. Flavonoids can repair cellular damage, thereby improving health. Many flavonoids are also known to fight against aging.
  6. Probiotics.
    Probiotics are forms of "gut bacteria" that can help control immune response. Yogurt, sauerkraut, and dark chocolate are examples of probiotic foods. Contact us to find probiotic foods right for you.
