A weak immune system is often a welcome note to various diseases and severe health issues. Viruses and bacteria constantly attack our body if its ‘defences’ aren’t strong. It is vital that every person has a clear understanding about the strength of their immune system. This would help us prepare better when it comes to fighting global pandemics like COVID-19. Take note of these symptoms to know whether your immune system is weak.

Anger issues
Keep calm and take note if you think that you are irate and angry all the time. Losing your temper even for simple matters could indicate that everything is not fine with your body. A peaceful and calm mind can only dwell in a healthy body. The health related issues can surely affect your mind too. If you experience excessive anger and severe mental stress, then it would be wise to observe whether your body has been subjected to viral infections. Do not hesitate to consult a doctor if you realise that you have been suffering from constant viral and bacterial infections.

The body would utilize the energy while constantly fighting the viruses and bacteria. If you feel severe exhaustion even after having nutritious food or taking sufficient rest, then it shows that your immune system has been compromised.

Fresh wound
If you think that cut wounds or burn wounds on your body, take forever to heal, then the real issue lies with the immune system. The wounds in the body of a person who has strong immune system would heal quickly.

Long cold
It is common that you catch a cold a few times in a year. However, if you suffer from constant cold or long cold, then it might be a symptom of weak immunity. Someone with a weak immune system would catch cold easily. They would fall ill if they do a strenuous physical job or are mentally stressed.

If you observe these symptoms, consult a doctor immediately to strengthen your immune system. Immune system could be strengthened and rejuvenated by altering your diet or life style a bit. Fruits, veggies and supplements should be taken to enjoy a healthy immune system. Following a diet that is rich in anti oxidants and vitamins could help strengthen your immune system.
