Low Immunity

Low immunity is a condition where there is a weakened immune system to fight against infections. People with low immunity become too stressed. They usually get frequent colds, diarrhea, and poor wound healing. They seem to be very tired always and get frequent infections in their body. Eating a well-balanced diet, managing stress, having a good sleep, and maintaining their normal weight helps to increase immune power in the body.
