Our daily routines and the commitment of doing a thousand things at once (and do them well) leaves us no time to get sick. Here are some naturally-proven ways to strengthen your immune system and increase your defenses.
Drink up. Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water per day. This stimulates your immune system and eliminates toxins. Tip: drinking plenty of water helps hydrate your skin and reduce fluid retention.
Relax. Tiredness and fatigue lower your defenses. All it takes is 15 minutes a day of deep breathing to increase the oxygen in your blood stream. Inhale, inflating your stomach then slowly exhale.
Stay active. Exercise stimulates circulation, increasing the production of adrenaline, and therefore, increasing your defenses.
Take Vitamin C. It is not a myth. Consuming Vitamin C is essential to preventing diseases. Lemon, orange, and, tangerine are rich in Vitamin C.
Rest. Get the best out of you night’s sleep by making sure no light enters your room and that all electronic devices are kept off. Respecting the body’s physiological processes causes you to regain energy.
Balanced diet. Meat, eggs ,and vegetables will provide iron, which in turn promotes an effective response to disease. Foods such as cauliflower, paprika, and radishes are rich in vitamin E and the antioxidants provide nutrients that strengthen your defenses.
Old remedies. Taking a tablespoon of honey, drinking a cup of green tea, or fruit and veggie juices are a classics that always work.
