Manage your stress
Cortisol helps fight inflammation and disease. The constant release of hormones in people with chronic stress can actually reduce the ability of this hormone.
This can cause inflammation in the body and susceptibility to disease. So one way to maintain good health is to control stress. You can try doing yoga or meditation exercises to control or relieve stress.
Socialize with people around
Loneliness is often linked as a trigger for several diseases, especially in people who are recovering from heart surgery.
Research published in the American Psychological Association shows that social isolation can increase stress, which slows the body’s immune response and ability to recover quickly.
Another way to maintain health is to maintain personal and environmental hygiene. In this way, you avoid the attack of various diseases. Here are some ways to maintain cleanliness:
Take a shower every day
Wash your hands before inserting contact lenses or doing other activities that make you come in contact with your eyes or mouth.
Wash your hands for 20 seconds and rub under your nails.
Try taking probiotics
Research shows that people who suffer from stress and receive probiotics experience pain in a shorter period of time.
Research shows that drinking alcohol can damage dendritic cells, which are important components of the immune system. Over time, frequent consumption of alcohol can increase a person against bacterial and viral infections.
A study published in the Journal of Clinical and Vaccine Immunology compared dendritic cells and immune system responses in alcohol-fed rats and non-alcoholic rats.
