Immuno Boost: 5 ways to improve your immune system

Updated: Sep 14

What key factors affect the immune system?

1. Stress

An individual under psychophysical stress has an increased risk getting infections. The body is affected by stress: think about stress-related gastritis. The body uses the resources of the immune system to self-repair.

2. Sedentary lifestyle

Moderate physical activity contributes to good health and keeps the whole body trained allowing for the immune response to be more efficient than in a sedentary person.

3. Sleep deprivation

In addition to the psychological benefits of getting adequate rest, it has been scientifically proven that people who sleep less than 7-8 hours tend to get sick more frequently. Furthermore, it is important to sleep between 11pm and 7am for maximum rest.

4. Poor nutrition

A high calories diet requires more energy from the body for the metabolism, in particular it involves the digestive system which plays a key role for the immune system. Furthermore, more specifically, respecting not only the quantity of calories but the quality of calories is important: respecting a balanced diet in macronutrients: carbohydrates, proteins, fats and rich in vegetables for their intake of vitamins and minerals.

5. Hydratation

Water and proper hydration plays a keyrole in having greater resistance to viral infections, both directly and indirectly: in fact, it improves one physical performance and the quality of sleep.

Dedicating a few moments to yourself to find the natural rhythms of your body, your metabolism, your sleep can become a real useful stimulus for the immune system to raise its defenses. Palazzo Fiuggi's Immuno boost program includes a path led by a multidisciplinary team that begins with a medical evaluation of the immune system, finding the proper diet for your body, up to the correct balance between medical and holistic disciplines.
