There are many things we can do to support the immune system. While we might consider single herbs for specific concerns, there are plenty of lifestyle changes and healthy habits we can recommend additionally to help keep our patients—and ourselves—healthy. While many might seem like second nature to us as healthcare professionals, they are good reminders to maintain healthy habits. A good diet, sleep habits, regular exercise, and shutting down the “brain chatter” will help keep the immune system in tiptop shape.
