The idea of boosting immunity is enticing but the ability to do so has proved elusive for many reasons.
Bolstering immunity is easier said than done. A single change in diet or lifestyle will not spike up your immune system in a single day.
So what should you do?
We all were born with innate immunity, which is the body’s ability to fight against the attack of pathogens.
We need to bring that immunity back. And bringing it back will require you to undo some things that you have been doing.
How about starting with some yoga practice?
How does yoga help to boost immunity?
Humans become prone to the attack of viruses and bacteria when something within the body is unbalanced. This state of unbalance compromises the immune system.
Yoga asana, pranayama, and meditation balances the unbalanced elements of the body by reducing stress hormones. Unlike other forms of exercise, yoga doesn’t focus on just a certain part of the body, rather it affects overall physical and mental health.
Asanas flex and stretch the muscles and increase the functionality of organs. Whereas pranayama affects lungs and bronchial passage. It maximizes lung capacity and builds resistance in the body.
It has been proven that yoga balances the energy of the body and provides a natural means of supporting the immune system on a day to day basis.
