Immune System Boosting Tips & Avoiding the Flu

Everywhere you turn someone is talking about the flu, the shot, and whether to get it or not. There are quite a few ways to boost your immunity during flu season, and avoid getting sick. The most important thing is to eat a healthy well balanced diet full of whole foods, fruits, and vegetables. Specific immunity booster are Vitamin C (Camu Camu is The Best), found in citrus fruits and Omega 3 fats, found in fatty fish. Garlic, carrots and sweet potatoes, which are loaded with beta carotene, also pump up your immune system. Probiotics, or the “live active cultures” found in yogurt, are healthy bacteria that keep the gut and intestinal tract free of disease-causing germs. Also add Vitamin E and Zinc to your diet for extra defense as well as Super Immune Boosting Herbs like Una De Gato!

Get a lot sleep. Make sure that during the season of sickness, you take extra care of yourself by resting and reducing stress. Lack of sleep lowers immunity and increases your chances of getting sick, so, ease up on the party people!

Always wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20-30 seconds and avoid touching your face. Drink plenty of water and hot liquids (warm water first thing in the morning is great), like green tea. Green tea is a super-charger for your immune system. Reduce (Avoiding is best) processed foods which are very low in nutrients we need to stay healthy & vital. Exercise to sweat out toxins and keep your immune system in tip top shape. And last but probably the most important thing you can do, is clean out all the junk in your body by doing a Body Cleanse. When your body is full of toxins it has to work over time to stay healthy. Clean out the Junk Today!
