Tips to Keep Your Immune System Strong

Walking/Movement. One of the most important things you must do is move your body.

This also has a bearing on heart health as it interacts with the circulatory system to drain fluid from cells and tissues. A healthy lymphatic system helps protect the body from parasites, viruses, bacteria, etc.

Sunshine will help boost your Immune system. Go out and expose as much of your body in the early morning sun each day for 30 mins. Gradually work up to this if you have not done this for some time.
