Your immune system is, at its simplest, all the organs and actions that go into keeping you safe from all of the microscopic bastardry in your environment. There are plenty of things that can weaken your defenses, including: - Stress - Booze - Poor sleeping habits - Poor nutrition
All things that are pretty bloody common in this day and age…
I would suggest eliminating or at least minimizing the above.
As for the “boost” part, look no further than your lymphatic system. The fluid in this system - lymph, a fluid containing infection fighting white blood cells - plays a crucial role in your immune response. When it fails to circulate, your ability to fight off illnesses will be severely impaired.
Lymph doesn’t circulate well on its own - it doesn’t have a pump or its own heart or anything, so to get lymph circulating you need to move your muscles, and you need to take them through a good range [jogging won’t cut it, I’m afraid...]. When your muscles are tight, or if you have limited range of motion in a joint, lymph tends to back up in that area. Your largest lymph node clusters are located in areas that are typically horrendously tight in the general public: the neck, armpits, chest, ribs and groin…
So what is the solution?
H-well… Come to Blackbrook, obviously… It will keep you out of the pub in the evenings, you’ll sleep better, pick up some decent nutrition habits… Plus all the full range of motion work will pump your lymph like Arnie pumps iron... Glorious.
