Let’s get started.
When many people think of bacteria, they picture harmful invaders that can make you sick. Not all bacteria are equal, and in fact, you already have a natural ecosystem of healthy and beneficial bacteria in your gut. A major portion of your immune system function is located in your gut, within your gut microbiota. This is where the armed guards of your immune system are, and help to regulate immune homeostasis.
To improve your gut health, the easiest thing you can do is to start to consume more fermented foods since they contain a high level of prebiotics that can help to strengthen your gut microbiota. These include kefir, yogurt, sauerkraut, kombucha, and kimchi. You can also eat these non-fermented prebiotics to help make your gut friendly : garlic, oranges, lentils, and even chocolate.
You can also start taking a probiotic supplement to improve the overall flora count in your gut.
A mixture of ginger, honey, lemon, and turmeric may sound unusual, but each of them has been known to boost your immune system.
Honey is packed full of antioxidants and has been studied on its immune-boosting properties.
Lemons are high in vitamin C, which helps to boost your overall immune system function, prevents bacterial growth in the body, loosens chest congestion, reduces sore throats, relieves nausea, and more.
Research shows that sleep and your immune system are bidirectionally linked. The amount of sleep you get directly affects your immune system function, and your immune system affects the level of sleep you will have. Deep REM sleep is essential for your body’s preparation, rejuvenation, and restoration, and even just one poor night’s sleep can affect the strength of your immune system.
To get better sleep, you need to take a look at your nighttime routine. Ditch the screen time by turning off all electronics at least one hour before bedtime, eliminate caffeine in the second half of the day, and prepare for relaxation at least one full hour before you decide to even lay down in your bed.
One of the best natural ways to boost immune system function is to get outside and exercise. This does not mean that you have to partake in intense workouts, all you have to do is move your body, regularly. Physical activity, especially outdoors, may help to flush bacteria out of the lungs and airways, which will help to lower the risks of getting a cold or virus.
Exercise also increases your blood flow, which in turn, increases your white blood cell (WBC) count. White blood cells are your immune system’s soldiers which fight off viruses and diseases. The more you have, the healthier you are.

There are many ways to get outside and get active, even inside your home. Not only will it boost your immune system, but it will also improve your overall mood and well-being due to the feel-good chemicals that are produced when you workout.
Getting sunlight not only has a positive effect on boosting your immune system, but it also can improve your overall mood and well-being. Absorbing the sunshine through your skin can strengthen your immune cells, and endocrine system, which is responsible for fighting off infections and viruses. This is all because of vitamin D, AKA the sunshine vitamin. Vitamin D deficiency is linked to increased autoimmunity and makes you more susceptible to infections. The more vitamin D in your body, the healthier you are.
Chronic stress releases an excessive amount of cortisol in your body. Cortisol suppresses your immune system function by interfering with your body’s ability to produce white blood cells. As we spoke about earlier, white blood cells (WBC) are your immune system’s soldiers. Cortisol also lowers an essential antibody called secretory IgA which defends against pathogens in the lining of the respiratory tract.
Stress-reducing activities are regular meditation, yoga, breathwork, getting outside, exercising, laughing, and eating nourishing foods. These activities will increase your overall quality of life and bring more joy to your day.
There you have it! A complete list of the natural ways to boost immune system function, and help you to live a healthier, happier life!
