Boost Your Immune System

Boost Your Immune System

Our immune system protects our bodies from harmful substances such as: bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi and toxins. The immune system is made up of a collection of immune cells, proteins and various organs, all working together to protect our health. The immune system cleverly recognises foreign invaders and immediately springs into action to safeguard our bodies. The immune system does a remarkable job of defending against disease-causing microorganisms, but sometimes it fails and causes illness, why?

Before I discuss ways to improve your immunity, I will mention some things that doesn’t improve immunity:

  • Your immune system doesn’t become stronger as a result of standing two meters apart from other people
  • Your immune system does not become stronger as a result of wearing a cloth over your face (Actually in certain respects it weakens it. It's no coincidence that people with respiratory illness are exempt from wearing rags over their airways)
  • Your immune system does not become stronger as result of obsessive hand washing
  • Your immune system does not become stronger by being socially isolated (all studies show it has the exact opposite effect)
  • Dr Vernon Coleman, a retired G.P. writes “A cough can spread droplets for 18 feet. A sneeze can travel 24 feet. So, if we are going to have social distancing, they’ve got the distance wrong. Really, it ought to be 30 feet to be safe. A six feet limit is arbitrary and utterly pointless".


We depend on the immune system to protect are bodies and it’s something we are totally in control of. It’s our responsibility to know how to really take care of our immune system so it can work better for us, even when we are exposed to viruses and bacteria. You can either make it robust and strong, keep an eye on it and nurture it, or you can draw on it like a bank account and run it down, until the day when you need its power, it will have none left to give. When we give our body what it needs it will repair and fight. It works for you and is your friend, you just need to ‘listen’ to its voice, learn its language hear its pain and respond and then you become the master of your ailments.

There are many ways to naturally boost your immune system, starting with a healthier lifestyle. Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected from negative environmental factors and is made stronger through healthy-living strategies such as:
