Five Ways to Optimize Your Immune System

Dr. Ramirez discusses 5 ways to optimize your immune system

1. Eat a variety of plant foods like, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, etc. 

Plant are the ideal foods for humans. They provide the compounds needed to run an optimal immune system. Two examples of foods showing great promise in recent research are mushrooms and chlorella.

2. Exercise

Our lymphatic fluid relies on our movement to circulate. Move regularly, take a walk, learn tai chi, qi gong, yoga, etc. All this will help optimize your immune function. 

3. Hydrate

Proper hydration helps our mucus membranes to defend against pathogens. 

4. Hygiene

Keep your hands and face clean to minimize exposure to pathogens. 

5. Acupuncture 

Acupuncture improves circulation and combats the effects of chronic stress on our bodies, so that our immune system can function optimally.
