How Diet And Stress Affect Your Immune System

Your immune system is constantly responding to your internal and external conditions. For instance, most of us have experience with coming down with a bad cold or flu directly following a period in which we haven’t been eating or sleeping well. The same principle can apply to more severe or chronic disease as well; a dysregulated immune system opens the door for illness.

In this mini-episode, Dr. Hyman speaks with Dr. Jeffrey Bland about how the food you eat and the quality of your sleep, your thoughts and relationships, and more are fundamental when it comes to the regulation of your immune system. He also speaks with Dr. Leonard Calabrese about the role that movement and exercise play in supporting your immune health.
