Spring Immunity

As the winter thaw gives way to the budding blooms of spring, the fluctuating temperatures and emerging allergens can take a toll on our wellness. The transition from cold to warm and back again isn't just a wardrobe dilemma—it's a challenge for our immune system too. This seasonal shift often brings with it an increased susceptibility to colds, allergies, and other health hiccups.

However, with the right strategies, we can bolster our immunity and embrace spring with vigor and vitality.

1. Increase Outdoor Activity

Acclimating your body to the new weather can help your body adjust, whether it’s rain or shine. Spring beckons us outdoors with its longer daylight hours, making it an ideal time to incorporate more physical activity into our daily routine. Regular exercise, particularly in the fresh air, boosts the immune system by improving circulation and reducing inflammation. So get outside rain or shine!

2. Embrace Seasonal Detoxification

The concept of spring cleaning can also apply to our bodies. A gentle, seasonal detox can help eliminate toxins and rejuvenate our system. This doesn’t necessarily mean drastic measures; simple changes like drinking more water, reducing processed foods, and incorporating detoxifying supplements into your diet can support your body’s natural detoxification processes.

HINT: Be mindful of those Easter eggs coming - sugar can suppress immunity. While our cells need glucose to survive, a refined sugar molecule is glucose AND fructose (fructose is the bad one!!) (1)

3. Manage Stress Effectively (New Ideas!!)

YES, we know - this seems like an impossible request as stress is an inevitable part of life, but chronic stress can weaken the immune system, making us more susceptible to illness. While meditation and getting more sleep are excellent advice, sometimes the reality is that’s not always possible.

Here are a few less obvious ways to reduce stress:



1. Stop watching the news. It’s stressful. Bad news is never easy to hear. Do a Spring detox of news! If not forever, then give yourself a month off and see what it does for your mind!



2. Book time off at home. It’s hard with families, and chores, but it’s much needed. Start slow, perhaps 30 minutes a day. Have a bath, start a puzzle, and read a book. These ideas seem trivial, but you must train your brain to relax! Can you imagine? Most of us dream of vacation and sitting on the beach to relax once a year but that’s not enough!!



3. Forest Bathing. No, not taking a bath in the woods! Forest bathing, the practice of immersing oneself in a forest environment and inhaling its air, it’s rooted in traditional therapy for centuries. Studies have shown a significant reduction in cortisol levels! So next time you see a forest pullover, hug a tree and take a deep breath! (2)

4. Supplementation because nobody is perfect!

Yes, the choices we make every day can help us boost our immune systems, but nobody is perfect, that is why we recommend fortifying with our range of immune-boosting mushrooms and herbs.
