Can alternative therapies boost your immune system?

With the events that are unfolding around the world as we speak, there is no better time to be looking after your health. Your immune system is a collection of organs, structures and processes that help to protect your body by fighting off disease and foreign bodies. This includes viral infections. Your immune system sometimes needs an extra boost itself, especially if you have underlying medical conditions or have an unhealthy lifestyle. Things you can do to look after your immune system is to make sure you’re getting enough rest and sleep, eating a well-balanced healthy diet, drink plenty of water, exercise regularly and practice good hygiene. On top of the above, have you considered looking into alternative therapies to help boost your immune system? At Divine Escape in St Martins, Oswestry, we offer a wide range of alternative therapies that provide a huge list of benefits, including helping your immune system.

What are alternative therapies?

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAMs) is an umbrella term given to any treatments that fall outside of mainstream healthcare. Although this umbrella term is commonly used, it is important to understand that it actually covers two main areas: Complementary When a non-mainstream practise is used together with conventional medicine, it is considered to be a complementary therapy. Alternative When a non-mainstream practise is used as an alternative to conventional medicine, it is considered to be an alternative therapy. Alternative therapies are there to improve your overall wellbeing and health. They can relieve pain, decrease stress, improve sleep and generally put a spring in your step. Many people that have received alternative therapies report the feeling of having much more energy afterwards. The most popular alternative therapies are:

  • Acupuncture

  • Aromatherapy

Can alternative therapies help to boost your immune system?

As it stands, alternative therapies are not scientifically proven to have benefits to your immune system. This is because alternative medicine isn’t greatly received by the medical and scientific field.

We strongly believe that you can indeed boost your immune system with the help of alternative therapy.
