Cleansing and exercise both can help boost immunity. All of us know that exercise and diet are beneficial, however many folks are not aware that exercise is beneficial beyond weight loss and looking great. It can help your body with the cleanup process which in turn helps your immune system.
It has been added to strength training to help flush lactic acid buildup in the muscles generated from lifting the heavy weights – this is your body’s inner flushing (or cleansing) system in action. Cleansing is a natural process that helps your body by eliminating internal buildup of toxins. Using this method, the immune system is allowed to devote all resources to warding off invaders during the cold and flu season. Exercise helps with the body’s cleansing process by causing your blood and other bodily fluids to move so that your body can more effectively clear waste.
Exercise and resistance are linked for these reasons. Regular exercise can reduce the risk of degenerative diseases like cancer and cardiovascular disease. It stimulates your immune system to fight viral and bacterial infections. It stimulates circulation that’s essential for good health. Increased flow will send antibodies and white blood cells through your body at a faster rate. This increases their likelihood of finding and neutralizing harmful pathogens. Increased circulation also helps carry more nutrients throughout your body.
This increased flow of nutrients will help strengthen the organs involved in keeping you healthy. Additionally, low-level exercise will help your body flush toxins such as bacteria from the lungs, and waste through perspiration and urine. As you can see, exercise generates over a toned body. It helps move toxins, increases circulation of nutrients throughout your body, boosts your immunity and, in the long term, increases energy. These are good reasons not to set your exercise regimen on hold during the holiday season, because today is also the cold and flu season.
There are certain exercises which are better for immunity compared to others. As we’ve observed above, strength training really causes its own toxins. The low-level aerobic kinds of exercise are best for flushing toxins in the body and stimulating the immune system. Good exercises for resistance include walking, bicycle riding, swimming, aerobics classes or anything which has an aerobic effect but is not overly strenuous. Get your normal exercise, help your body cleanse and your resistance can get stronger together with your muscles.
