Below are some tips to help your immune system stay strong during the high stress seasons of your life, the flu seasons, and the down seasons where you have the time to put your body first!
Immunity Shots: Holistic remedies are the greatest form of medicine for the body. Flu shots are not an option in my household, however ginger shots are! You can purchase ginger shots at any local market (I usually purchase at my local WholeFoods). These shots are around two ounces, however the taste is very pungent and not many people can down it by itself. You can either add it to your daily smoothie, tea, or pour it into a hot cup of water with lemon. Ginger has antibacterial properties, and can help sooth an upset stomach, even nausea! Ginger is a great way to boost your immune system because of its antibacterial properties, one shot three days a week should do the trick!
Maitake Mushrooms: Maitake Mushrooms is another natural remedy that boots the immune system. Through the compounds found in Maitake Mushrooms, taking this regularly can drastically improve the way your body fights infections, viruses, and colds! I take Maitake Mushroom pills everyday to boost my immune system, I find that the best pills come from www.Regnalife.net ! (These pills specifically hold six types of mushrooms that are extremely powerful and hold massive amounts of antioxidants).
TURMERIC: Turmeric is a great natural remedy for the body, it's anti-inflammatory spice that helps boost the immune system and helps fight viruses! Curcumin that is found in Turmeric that has powerful anti-cancer properties. Turmeric can help improve memory, help those suffering from depression, and helps relieve any sort of pain the body is undergoing. I usually take turmeric pills everyday to boost my immune system, I find that the best turmeric pills come from www.Regnalife.net ! Sometimes I even take apart the veggie capsule and add the powder to my tea or my soup that I'm making.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR: It seems as though Apple Cider Vinegar has just emerged into society in the last couple of years, however it's been around for ages! Scientists are now telling the public that this is the secret weapon to conquer anything the body is going through. Apple Cider Vinegar helps subside colds, infections, and viruses. It keeps the immune system in check, adding one-two tablespoons to your water each day can boost your body's immune system when it comes to kicking anything unwanted that the body may be going through. After adding this to your water regularly it can also act as a shield to any infections or colds that the body is exposed too. Make sure to add this to your grocery list!
GARLIC: If you love to cook, make sure to overload your food with the fresh and natural ingredient of garlic! This is such a powerful vegetable to cook with, and especially to fight germs/infections in the body. Garlic has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy to help the body kill germs, bacteria, and viruses inside the body as well as outside. Garlic has antiviral as well as antibacterial properties. Add more garlic to your life!
