Every­one knows that in order not to get sick, you need to strength­en the immune sys­tem. But how to do it right?

The immune sys­tem is the “shield” of the body, reflect­ing harm­ful effects. She knows how to adapt to every­thing, but there are many fac­tors that weak­en her, open­ing “loop­holes” for dis­eases. A cer­tain group of anti­bod­ies is inher­it­ed (pla­cen­tal immu­ni­ty), but in many ways the strength of our defense sys­tem depends on lifestyle.

1. What weakens the immune system



As a rule, immu­ni­ty “falls” sharply under severe stress and seri­ous stress, so dan­ger­ous or ner­vous work is a rather seri­ous fac­tor. As well as “bad ecol­o­gy”. Sup­port is need­ed for an organ­ism weak­ened after oper­a­tions or tak­ing antibi­otics. Weak immu­ni­ty in new­borns and the elder­ly. And, of course, the fierce ene­mies of the immune sys­tem are bad habits: smok­ing, alco­hol abuse, wrong dai­ly rou­tine.

What are the signs that the immune sys­tem is weak­ened? First of all, it is weak­ness, fatigue, poor con­di­tion of the skin, hair and nails. Fre­quent colds and aller­gic reac­tions, as well as reg­u­lar com­pli­ca­tions of chron­ic dis­eases, clear­ly sig­nal fail­ures. A very char­ac­ter­is­tic symp­tom is the appear­ance of her­pes on the lips. Sep­sis, dys­bac­te­rio­sis, swollen lymph nodes are indi­ca­tions for immuno­log­i­cal exam­i­na­tions.

3. How to strengthen immunity

The so-called adap­to­gens are sub­stances that have a ton­ic and stim­u­lat­ing effect. The most famous of them are eleuthe­ro­coc­cus, gin­seng, lemon­grass and aralia. They are gen­er­al­ly safe, but it is bet­ter to take them no more than once a day and prefer­ably in the morn­ing.

Hard­en­ing pro­ce­dures should not become addi­tion­al stress for the body. There­fore, no “sud­den move­ments” like dous­ing with cold water! Try rub­bing with a damp tow­el, grad­u­al­ly low­er­ing the tem­per­a­ture of the water with which you moist­en it. Start a con­trast show­er with small tem­per­a­ture drops (no more than 8 degrees), grad­u­al­ly bring­ing the dif­fer­ence to 15 degrees. Alter­nat­ing warm and cool water, fin­ish with cool. Enough 2–3 min­utes of this pro­ce­dure once a day, and in the morn­ing, not at night. Remem­ber that a con­trast show­er is con­traindi­cat­ed for hyper­ten­sive patients, heart patients, as well as for any inflam­ma­tions and exac­er­ba­tions of the “chron­i­cle”.
