Homeostasis And A Holistic Approach To Health At Home

A Guide For Homeostasis: Fortifying Your Body's Natural Defence Mechanisms

Clearlight would like to remind users that this should not be taken as direct medical advice, and users should always consult a medical professional if complications arise from prolonged use.

Over the past year, the world has focused on dealing with a pandemic that has ravished almost every country on the planet. Through preventative measures such as social distancing, border closures, bans on international travel, and more, much of the population sought out holistic solutions to help combat the epidemic. 

Considering a holistic view of health, in this blog we take a look at fortifying the body's defense mechanisms to best cope with the stressors and toxins that our environment and lifestyles make us susceptible to.

What Is Homeostasis?

Homeostasis is defined as a state of balanced bodily conditions, physical and chemical, that provide all living things the ability to live at an optimal functioning state. Since we're in the business of saunas, an example of homeostasis is when your body regulates its internal temperature due to outside exposure to either the heat or the cold, inciting the functions of sweating or shivering. 

How Can I Boost My Immune System Naturally? 

Boosting your body's natural immune system to help prevent any virus from latching onto a host cell within the body is a great practice of general health. This can be done by simply adding the correct vitamins and minerals to your daily intake.

Reducing the amount of inflammation that is put into the body is another effective method. By switching out certain foods during the day, you can lower inflammation, allowing your body to allocate the correct resources to defend itself. If you need a refresher on what inflammation is, we have an easy to read blog that explains some ways you can lower inflammation naturally.
