Are you suffering with more frequent cold and viral infections or just feeling run down? If yes, it implies that you are having a weak immune system. A weak immune system can lead to many infections, cancers, allergies and also autoimmune disorders. So, it is very essential for you to boost your immune system in order to avoid adverse health conditions. It is very easy to boost your immune system with certain essential changes in your diet and lifestyle habits.

  1. Get plenty of sleep and rest. Your body rejuvenates and strengthens when it’s at rest so try and get between eight and ten hours a night of sleep especially when you are not feeling 100%.
  2. Eat antioxidant rich “superfoods”. Eating foods with high antioxidant levels is great for your immune system, such as fruits and vegetables like berries, dark greens and broccoli; nuts and seeds like pecans, walnuts and pumpkin seeds and legumes like aduki beans and pinto beans, all of these foods have a high antioxidant value.
  3. Eat plenty of protein and cut out sugar. Protein is a building block for a healthy body, mind, and immune system and your body requires regular amounts throughout the day rather than a big steak at dinner time. Worse yet is the impact of refined white sugar! If you do only one thing to boost your immune system, eliminating sugar will do the trick.
  4. Laughter is the best medicine. It may be a cliché but it’s actually true. Laughing reduces stress hormones like adrenaline and increases your immune system cells that attack viruses.
  5. Drink plenty of fluids. Good quality fluids such as filtered water and herbal teas will help flush the body of toxins and keeps you well hydrated. Add some lemon juice to help alkalise your body.
  6. Regular exercises: Practicing regular body workouts not only improve your blood circulation, but also help to boost your immune system.
  7. Good quality supplements, if you are not eating a well balanced diet and practicing the above tips a good quality vitamin and mineral supplement will help boost your immune system. Also vitamin C and Zinc, specific probiotics and immune enhancing herbs will help prevent as well as speed up recovery, to find out what is the best for you contact me.
