Great article. Definitely putting these tips to use!
This article is so helpful. Stress is so bad these days and sleep is right up there with it! Just doesn't seem like there is enough sleep time and things happen all to often to cause stress.
I definitely need to put some of these to work!
Sleep and stress??? Have too much of one and not enough of the other!!!
Pre the article I was doing pretty good with improving my immune system until today . . . and then I had wine.
Keep in mind that most of your immune system is in your gut. Healthy gut equals healthy everything.
The foods that make you fat ALSO ruin your immune system. Obesity is a symptom NOT a cause.
The biggest culprits are the empty calories in grains and starches. Most people think that they only need to cut out sugar to improve their health, but it's almost impossible to cut JUST sugars. You'll be starving, crabby, and having constant cravings.
Starch is the enemy - it feeds all the wrong gut bacteria, makes your body store energy as fat instead of using it, and gives you almost no nutritional bang for your caloric buck!

I was hoping for something more. My son has struggled with a weak immune system most of his life, and none of this is going to help him.
What a fantastic naturopathic website! Thanks so much for the referral.
Great information provided. In addition I have also came across a great article that focuses on ways to check if you have a low immune system as well as how to boost your immune system.Thought it would be worth the share: http://www.drdnaturopath.com/index.php/how
I still recall that when I was a smoker I ALWAYS had to stop when I got a cold or the flu.
...duh. Fluff piece.
Pretty much things in moderation & not to abuse our bodies with smoking & alcohol - makes sense.
Really enjoyed this article! The 6 tips were great! Definetely will put them to practice! Good thing I am not a smoker, so that is one less thing to worry about!
Definitely need to follow this advice!
