5 Ways to Optimise Our Immune System

Posted on: No Comments

1. Boost your beneficial bacteria

70-80% of our body’s immune system is in the gut…

Boosting beneficial gut bacteria or improving gut health prevents luminal colonisation by pathogenic microorganisms. This can assist with improving low immunity symptoms.

For a specific concern you need to get the right blend of bacteria cultures. This balance is hard to find in today’s world.

Natural probiotics

We can find probiotics in fermented soya products such as miso and tempeh and the following foods which are also dairy free probiotic foods.

2. Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids

Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids are essential dietary nutrients. These essential fats are found in all our cells and cannot be made by our bodies. This is why our diets must be rich enough to supply them.
The ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 essential fatty acids that we consume directly impacts health of immune and inflammatory response. Omega-3 can be found in flax seeds, hemp seeds and pumpkin seeds, walnuts, rapeseed oil and fish. Omega-6 can be found in safflower, sunflower, corn, cottonseed and sesame oils. Ideally we need them in a ratio of about 1:3, but the modern diet, and the fact that Omega-3’s are fragile and easily destroyed by heat, means that we actually get closer to a 1:10 ratio of these fats. Therefore, we either needs to radically alter our diets, or we need to supplement Omega-3.

3. Avoid Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D is an essential immune nutrient. It’s also one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in Britain. Sunlight is our primary source of vitamin D. The government now recommends that we all supplement vitamin D during autumn and winter.

4.Up Your Zinc

Zinc plays an essential role in the immune system. Zinc deficiency increases susceptibility to a variety of infections. Zinc is required to heal wounds and fight infections. Aim to get the recommended minimum: 15mg Zinc per day. Zinc rich foods include shellfish e.g. oysters, crab, prawn, organic grass fed beef, lamb, flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds and eggs.

Pelvic Floor Exercises Back Pain

The pelvic floor muscles are closely connected to the back muscles. Weak pelvic floor muscles frequently cause back pain, while poorly developed back muscles and bad posture weaken your pelvic floor. Strengthening the pelvic floor normalises the tone of the surrounding muscle tissue. This may alleviate symptoms of lower back pain as a secondary effect.

Introducing The New Pelvic Floor Training Chair – Training For A Stronger Pelvic Floor

Approximately 1 in 3 women experience health problems from a weak pelvic floor at some point in their lifetime.  For many years women thought that their incontinence, bladder control and other problems, especially after childbirth, were to be expected and they just had to tolerate them.  They were sometimes either too embarrassed to seek help, or are unaware that there are effective treatments available, and sometimes had to plan their days and journeys around knowing where toilets are located, in order to avoid “accidents”.  Very often we can help these people.

Indications include:

  • Menopause – including non-hormonal treatments and hormone implants
  • Incontinence (bowel weakness, bladder weakness, leaking, prevention)
  • Young mothers (post natal, bladder weakness, increased libido) Female vitality (menopause, cellulite, libido)
  • Male Vitality (increased potency, post- prostatectomy rehabilitation) Back pain (relaxation and posture)
  • Tissue Toning (prevention, strengthening and tissue toning)
