Immune system best ways

In this day of heightened awareness concerning viruses and communicable disease, efforts to strengthen your immune system are always welcome. In2GREAT Functional and Integrative Health in Kansas City suggests these four top ways to strengthen your immune system for better health and a better life.

Focus on Food

Giving your body more if what it needs is always a prescription for better health, and that includes fighting off disease. Focus on these immunity-boosting foods in your diet:

  •   Antioxidants like carrots, berries, and spinach
  •   Fiber
  •   Green vegetables
  •   Garlic
  •   Kiwi
  •   Cantaloupe
  •   Other vitamin C-rich fruits and vegetables

Eating a balanced diet of all the food groups is a great way to maintain good health and provide all your body needs. Many restaurants and eateries in Kansas City feature healthy menu choices to help you keep eating right even when celebrating or spending time with family friends.

Focus on Lifestyle

Your lifestyle choices can go far to strengthen your immune system. Getting the proper amount of sleep, handling stress in healthy ways, avoiding alcohol, drugs, and negative practices, getting a good amount of exercise, and maintaining a positive attitude can all help you boost your immune system and fight off disease and infections.

Focus on Attitude

Much can be said about the effects of attitude on your health, and that includes strengthening your immune system. Today, it can be easy to allow spiraling, negative thoughts to drive us down to depression, worry, fear, and doubt. Those who wish to give up are in a weakened mental state, and this has ramifications for your health. Focus on the positives in your life and maintain a positive attitude for better immune support.

Focus on Targeted Nutrition

Sometimes you need an additional boost to keep your body protected. IV Nutrition from in2GREAT Functional and Integrative Health in Kansas City can provide the building blocks you need to strengthen your immune system. We formulate an IV solution specially designed to boost your bodily systems where they are weak or need extra support.
