As wintertime is a season of great beauty, serenity and celebration. It is also a time when many of us find that we get a number of colds and are vulnerable to catching the flu. A regular practice of Yoga asanas and pranayama exercises will help to keep you in good physical and mental health. There are also Yoga asanas and pranayama exercises that are particularly beneficial for enhancing the functioning of the immune system. The immune system is “staffed” by white blood cells that are circulated throughout the body by the lymphatic system. Workout in general will help to increase the functioning of the immune system by increasing the circulation of white blood cells throughout the entire body. Yoga asanas that turn the body upside down are known as inversions. Inversions will substantially support the efficient functioning of your immune system through the added power of gravity to increase circulation.

Here are few Moods

  1. A) Stress is one of the main parts to reduce immunity. When you’re in ‘fight or flight’ due to fear, worry or rushing, your body sends energy and attention to the muscles and takes it away from other systems like digestion and immune function so you can run away from the proverbial tiger. But when your body needs to prepare to combat a virus, you need to do the opposite. You need to stay more often in ‘rest, digest and repair’ mode, so your immunity will be high.
  2. B) Social isolation measures important now in certain areas of the globe, but they can cause aloneness, frustration, stress and depression. So, many of us will need to find ways to emphasis in order to take care of extra details and stay involved with the world, hope, and our sense of purpose while at home.

Yoga can be helpful in both of the above as well as generous tips and tools to keep us engaged and boosting our immune system.

Your diet and immune system

There is a popular axiom that “we are what we eat.” This goes miserable to say that the efficiency of a person’s immune system is resolute by his or her diet practices. Every food that passes through your mouth has the ability to improve or negatively affecting your immune system. The negative effect of the food on the immune system reduces its ability to protect the body against invaders.

A lot of people see the idea of boosting their immune systems as a tedious and impossible one. But is it really like they think? Below are some tips to help you boost your immune system during yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, India.

Adjust your diet practices

This is the first step to take. Quit skipping breakfasts because they are the first foods to enter the body and be processed. Processed and greasy foods shouldn’t be your choice during breakfast. Wheat grains, oats, honey, yogurt, pomelo, and berries are available to choose from.

Avoid skipping lunch and dinners too. Food ingredients like black pepper, garlic, thyme, rosemary, oregano, fish and other seafoods help a lot to boost immune systems. So, ensure your diets contain them in moderate quantity.

While trying to boost your immune system, abstain from;

  • Drinking in excess
  • Smoking
  • Recreational drugs like heroine, methamphetamine, cocaine, etc.
  • Abuse of prescribed drugs
  • Junk foods containing preservatives, animal fat in excess, and other unnatural additives
  • High level of unnecessary stress

The Impact of Yoga & Breathing

Enter deep yogic breathing. Fancy advanced pranayama not required. It is enough to use slow, controlled breathing. A review published this year in Advances in Mind-Body Medicine (Adv Mind Body Med. 2015 Winter; 29(1):18-25) points to controlled, rhythmic breathing and details the numerous studies that show this simple practice to be highly effective to alleviate stress and improve healthcare outcomes.

The best news of all, is that absolutely anyone can use the tool because the benefit is traced to the breath. No asana is required. A simple meditation that focuses on breath control is all you need. This kind of breathing is certainly built into the yoga practice, but applied to any form of exercise or meditation the technique can be equally effective!

Happy breathing, yogis, and cheers to your improved health!
