Eating or drinking too much sugar and processed food curbs immune system cells that attack bacteria. S t o p e a t i n g j u n k …
Stay hydrated and take a probiotic daily. A strong immune system relies heavily on having a healthy, well-functioning digestive tract.
Use antiviral herbal supplements. Immunity boosting antiviral herbs contain thousands of medicinal compounds that attack viruses with a full spectrum of synergistic substances – and without creating resistant viral strains. Check out Zand brand Herbal lozenges with Elderberry and Zinc.
Eat your dark greens and other vibrant fruits and vegetables often. I sound like a broken record here: richer color equals more nutrients.
Wheatgrass provides a concentrated amount of nutrients, including iron; calcium; magnesium; amino acids; chlorophyll; and vitamins A, C and E and is readily absorbed into the bloodstream. Just 2 oz. of fresh juice equals 3 pounds of organic veggies in vitamins and minerals. (a personal favorite if I feel the slightest of “sick” coming on)
Add garlic. Garlic adds rich, calorie free flavor plus has clinically proven anti-viral properties.
Adequate levels of Vitamin D are essential for our immune systems to function effeciently. Unfortunately, there are no significant dietary sources of Vitamin D – most of our intake comes from exposure to sunlight. It is important to get your 25 hydroxy Vitamin D level checked. For optimal health, you’ll want your level to be between 50 and 70ng/ml.
Break a sweat. Exercise helps keep your immune system healthy and robust. Heads up: Chronic stress exposes your body to a steady stream of stress hormones that suppress the immune system. Try yoga? Not only do you sweat, yoga can help to boost immunity, relieve tension and enhance physical and mental resilience.
Wishing you good health and wellness from within.
