Did you know that your immune system is important all year long? In the fall and winter, a strong immune system may help you to avoid colds, flus, and viruses. In the spring, the fluctuating temperatures are tough on your immune system.
In the summer, your immune system is important because you are sometimes in cold, low-humidity environments and other times in quite warm and high-humidity environments! Even if you do not live in a humid climate, the significant difference in air conditioned and non-air conditioned environments can make you ill.
Here are just three signs of a weak or compromised immune system:
1. Frequent illness
If being ill for 4-5 weeks at a time is normal for you, I understand because before 2013, that was how I lived. However, when I began to take care of my immune system (and not just eat healthy foods), illness came less frequently and for considerably shorter periods of time.
Please understand that you were not mean to be ill for an entire month at a time!
2. Digestive issues
Did you know that over 60% of your immune system is in your gut? Therefore, if your digestive system is not working properly, your immune system will not be either! Therefore, if your digestive system is not functioning optimally, your immune system will usually be weak.
3. Seasonal allergies
Most people think that allergies mean that they cannot be around certain flowers or plants. Did you know, though, that your allergies may mean that your immune system is compromised?
Before I began to take care of my immune system, my allergies were terrible, especially when I lived in a warm climate. Now they do not bother me one bit!

From 2019 to almost the end of 2020, I worked hard to resolve my digestive issues. I was doing so well before I slowly slide back to my former ways.
In the last 6 months, not only have I gained weight, but my digestive system is once again in an uproar. 😔
Thankfully I have not gotten sick but I have felt unwell several times.
