5 signs you have a weak immune system

Work on your immunity

Weak immunity(VideoBlocks)

Your immune system protects the body against diseases and infections. So when it’s weakened, you become more prone to diseases.

The good news though is that there are various things you can do to spike up your immunity. If you have these signs, it may mean that you need to work on your immunity because it is weakened:

1. Colds

How often do you catch a flu? It’s normal to get one once in a while. But if you catch one followed by another and you are always a victim each time there is an outbreak in the office, your immunity needs to be rescued.

2. Frequent infections

We all get infections but when you have a weakened immune system, your body can’t resist infections. You will thus be more susceptible to bacterial and fungal infections such as yeast infections and UTIs. If the infections have become so stubborn and recurrent, your immune system needs a boost.

3. Slow healing wounds

When you have a cut or wound, it should not take too long to heal. If you have been noticing that your wounds are taking longer to heal, it’s probably because your immune cells are not strong enough to support the healing process.

4. Fatigue

When you have a weakened immune system, your body is in constant struggle to keep you strong and healthy. Most of the times you will be feeling tired even if you are just resting.

5. Allergies

Some people naturally have allergies towards certain things. However, the body is more reactive towards the allergens when you have a weakened immune system. You may have a runny nose, sinuses, wheezing or itchy eyes.
