Spice Up Your Daily Routine to Support Your Immune System
OK, but first… What is functional medicine and how can it benefit you?
Functional Medicine is a specialty that compliments traditional treatments, but instead of treating the symptoms alone, it focuses on finding the root cause of the disease that causes these symptoms in the first place.
In Functional Medicine, protecting and boosting the immune system is crucial to avoid future or potential diseases and ailments. This is important because the immune system helps to protect your body from foreign and potentially harmful substances. Some examples of these threats are bacteria, viruses, toxins, cancerous cells, allergens and free radicals, to name a few.
The immune system produces cells and antibodies that destroy these harmful substances. We could say that our immune system is like a forte for our bodies. Here we have a few tips from our Functional Medicine Physicians that you can implement right away to protect and nourish your immunity:
Watch your diet
Try to reduce stress levels in the body
