Advice On How To Boost Immune System

By Harvey Green

With winter approaching, people are bracing themselves for the sniffles and runny noses associated with this time of the year. However, following a few simple suggestions will show how to boost immune system deficiencies. Choosing some or all of the following suggestions and sticking to them will increase chances of staying healthy and will help to improve the health.

Add freshly squeezed lemon juice to salad dressings, tea or water for a refreshing and healthy taste. To maintain the body’s acid and alkali pH balance, drink lemon juice. It will also stimulate much more healthy bacteria than the harmful bacteria and viruses that live in an acidic habitat.

Ingesting protein builds a healthy mind and a healthy body. Eat more protein. Low protein diets are usually rich in carbohydrates and convert to glucose readily, with accompanying spikes in blood sugar and resulting in stress in the pancreas and to the protective system.

Drinking more water is desirable. This is extremely important. Not drinking enough water is often the cause of headaches. Headaches together with thirst are symptoms of dehydration, an indication to step up on the intake of water.

Stay away from coffee. Chocolate and coffee are being promoted as sources of antioxidants but should be kept out of the diet for better health. Essential minerals and vitamins are lost which results in dehydration. Drinking two glasses of water for every one cup of coffee should become the norm.

Refined sugar should be eliminated from the diet. This will result in a boosted protective mechanism and raised energy levels and will also stimulate clearer thinking on the removal of the cravings. Many nutritionists advocate cutting out all refined sugar consumption before recommending that people stop smoking.

Increase the intake of raw vegetables and fruit which are rich sources of antioxidants, fiber, enzymes, minerals and vitamins. There is no greater nutritional benefit to be derived anywhere than from raw vegetables and fruit. Large numbers of vitamins, including vitamin C, are antioxidants, protecting cells, especially those in the body’s protective mechanism, from toxin damage. Produce which is high in flavonoids and polyphenols such as broccoli, kale and several berries, are a darker color. Dried seaweed, a superb source of minerals, is often sold dried but is obtained raw, after it has been dried at a low temperature to preserve the nutrients and enzymes.

Food is not the only consideration for immune system health. A friendly atmosphere, interacting with family and friends and with great emphasis being placed on touching, like hugging, can increase the activities of the killing cells which destroy cancerous cells and viruses.

Music is a great immunity booster, but it should be music that you love. Tastes vary and no two people may agree on what is good music. If the music elicits a shiver down the spine it usually stimulates those parts of the brain normally associated with sex or food. Making music is substantially more rewarding than listening to it.

A positive attitude is an immune system booster. Youthful optimists tended to outlive pessimists by some 12 years. Laughter is a good tonic. Exercising the brain is important to keep it functioning. Exercising the body is relaxing and will reduce stress. The final hint on how to boost immune system is to relax more for stress reduction.

Immune system supplements help your body to fight off invading viruses and germs naturally. Boosting your immune system can prevent the necessity for costly medications and prescription drugs.
