How can you protect yourself from getting sick? Well, to boost immunity there lot’s of different options, but the one I’m going to go over today is a proactive way to help your body A TON in the long run. Here’s some information about our Wellness Check up & why you need it!
One of the things I want to know about my patients is how healthy their immune system is. The tests tell the story. Often I see a depleted, weakened immune system which can lead to a multitude of problems.
The Deficiencies that can lead to a Compromised Immune System
- Vitamin D – this is super common!!
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin E
- Vitamins B9/folate & B12 (homocysteine and methylmalonic acid)
Vitamin E is an essential nutrient that has a variety of health benefits.1 It supports the immune system, contributes to eye, brain and skin health, helps maintain healthy skin and eyes, strengthens the body’s natural defence against illness and infection (the immune system), improves cognitive function and even protects against some cancers.0
Zinc is an essential mineral that plays a major role in many bodily functions and systems such as the immune system, wound healing, blood clotting, thyroid function and the senses of taste and smell.0 It is a trace mineral that the body only needs small amounts to function properly; however it is necessary for almost 100 enzymes to carry out vital chemical reactions.1
How the Wellness Check Comes In & Why You Need it
All of the vitamins, antioxidants, and hormones are so crucial to your immune support and overall bodily functions. Without them… well it’s like trying to run a car without ever changing the oil! You might get by for a while, but eventually it will cause the you to break down sooner than expected. By giving your body what it needs, you will find yourself getting sick less often!
