 Boosting your immunity during COVID-19 is so important!

 

Washing your hands is key, but  however there are many other ways to boost your immunity. 

 

  1. Eat real living foods– stop eating junk food, packaged food, sugary treats. Refined sugars suppress your immune system for hours after ingested.  The best rule is eat what Mother Nature provides. For example, if it comes from a plant don’t eat it, if it grows on a plant eat it.
  2. Get exercise and fresh air- get lots of fresh air, walk, run, skip, dance outside in your backyard or in the forest. Breathing in fresh clean air calms the nervous system and helps your body detox naturally.
  3. Lower stress- take up meditation, mindfulness, yoga, or exercise to de-stress. Watch funny animal videos. Laughter helps the lymph system which creates more natural killer cells. Click here to learn more about  how laughter can boost the immune system
  4. Take Supplements- supplements being recommended for COVID-19 are Vitamins, A, C, D, E, minerals like magnesium, zinc and herbs.
  5. Flood your body with plants  flood your body with pure fruit and vegetables capsules, as a result it will build your immunity naturally.

A few foods naturally supply vitamin D: Beef liver, cheese, egg yolks and fatty fish, cod liver oil and mushrooms.  It’s best to get your Vitamin D naturally – either from the sun and food, or though supplementation. So important to have a blood test to measure Vit D.
  • Zinc – has been proven to disrupt this virus . Two foods rich in Zinc are oysters and pumpkin seeds.
  • Magnesium – has a strong relation with the immune system. it is estimated that 80% of North American are magnesium deficient. High magnesium foods include dark leafy greens, seeds, beans, fish, whole grains, nuts, dark chocolate, yogurt, avocados, bananas.  If you supplement Magnesium and overdo it, the fail-safe is diarrhea so you will know when you have had too much.
