The cannabis community is all about naturally doing things; it is kind of our mantra. Though of course, we appreciate what science has done and penicillin is awesome, there are still ways that we can benefit our health naturally. Here are a few ways that you can help naturally boost your immune system.
Sleep is great, isn’t it? When you can get it. Studies show that when you have a healthy sleep regimen, your immune system is stronger because of it. The longer you go without being well rested, the harder your body is working which can cause stress on your body. This stress can wreak havoc on your immune system, so get some shut-eye!
Limit Over-The-Counter Medicine
Studies have shown that over-the-counter medication like ibuprofen can cause damage to your gut and immune health. Limiting your use of these can help keep your immune system strong. If you are in pain, try taking CBD oil instead. CBD hemp oil has shown in studies to help with pain and doesn’t damage your immune system.
Exercising is what keeps your muscles and joints strong, but it doesn’t stop there. Studies have shown that regular exercise can also help strengthen your immune system. Researchers studied around 1000 participants, and all of the ones who exercised were least likely to get colds in the winter months.
Stop Drinking And Smoking
Do you have unhealthy habits? Well here is another reason to stop doing them. Research has shown that drinking alcohol and smoking tobacco can compromise the strength of your immune system. Scientists have seen that excessive alcohol consumption makes people more prone to disease like pneumonia. Researchers have also discovered that smoking cigarettes disrupts the immune system’s homeostasis making it less effective.
Relaxation and Meditation
It’s hard not to stress out, but if you let yourself do it constantly, it can make your health begin to plummet. Stress can cause cardiovascular issues, sleep issues, and degrade your mood and along with all of that it also can make your immune system weak. Meditation has shown in studies that it can help boost your immune system and change the way you and your mind perceive stress.
