Finding yourself fighting off frequent colds or just generally feeling rundown often? These can be an indication of a weakened immune system, which if not addressed can lead to serious chronic medical problems. The health of our immune system is directly impacted by many things, but negative external factors such as chronic stress, lack of sleep, decreased physical activity, and poor diet; play a major role. The good news is that there are techniques and methods to limit and even reverse the effect of these factors!
Because we cannot always eliminate the anxiety of job performance, situational stressors, financial stress and relationship obligations, it is imperative to develop and maintain proven coping methods to mitigate the body's negative responses to chronic stress.
In addition to regular exercise, improved diet and meditation, consistent Floatation Therapy is one of the most effective tools to help individuals develop skills to manage and reduce stress levels. A session in a Floatation Therapy pod allows you to completely relax the body physically - instantly reducing stress, enter a meditative state more easily and reconnect with your breath and body. Research indicates that with regular Floatation sessions, you can ‘train your mind’ and become conditioned to use these relaxation skills when exposed to everyday stressors. This approach helps to lessen the overall impact of chronic stress on the immune system.
Herbal Medicine is another great way to strengthen and support your immune system. Herbals like echinacea and ginger are immuno-modulators that help your body fight. The easiest and most pleasurable way to get the benefits of these herbals is in a soothing cup of quality herbal tea. Come sample MIZU's line of small batch medicinal teas and enjoy a cup after every Float!
