An apple a day keeps the doctor away. But sometimes an apple is just not enough and your immune system needs a little extra boost. Here are some tips on how you can boost your immune system with more than an apple, but still naturally.
You don’t have to move into a spa, but fitting a daily meditation practice into your routine will have a positive impact on your immune system.
Sleep more. An easy and relaxing way to prevent you from getting a cold is to maintain a good and regular sleeping routine with at least 7 hours of sleep a night.
Regular exercise improves cardiovascular health, lowers blood pressure and protects against a variety of diseases
Good and healthy food is the pillar of healthy living. Choosing the right groceries (besides apples) can have a huge impact on your immune system. Simple things like garlic or chicken soup can protect you from getting a cold. Garlic contains the active ingredient allicin, which fights infection and bacteria. Chicken soup also blocks the migration of inflammatory white cells and its salty broth keeps mucus thin the same way cough medicines do. It’s been said many times before, but it’s still important: Try to avoid processed food especially sugar.
