I’ve heard the Phrase,
Winter is Coming… from the TV Series,
Game of Thrones.
This is a Post at what I’ve read on a Site,
A few things WE as a whole can do for Ourselves in building up a Stronger Immune System to tackle the little Viruses which Attack us during the Cold Months of the Year!
That said, no matter what we Most of the time do, it happens that we do Fall Prey to this little virus called the FLUE…
Here are only a few things which Might help you along the way.
Everyone might know this OR You’ll read it here,
BUT – there’s a Lot to be said by what We eat and how it not Only affects us but what It’s got to do with ourselves as Human Beings.
It wouldn’t be a Leap then to Understand and Realize that when I’m mentioning this,
One of the First things I’ll be Mentioning here would be,
Take care of your Diet and the additional Supplements which You consume.
Eat Whole Foods;
From the foods Our Bodies use some of the Following Nutrients:
Vitamins A, C, D, and E – there are Minerals such as Selenium, Zinc and Omega 3s which support your Immune System.
Look to whole foods such as Animal Proteins – if you don’t like this, eat Legumes, Whole Grains, Nuts, and Seeds; with this, you can supplement the Whole Foods with Fruits and Vegetables.
There are Superfoods like; Camu Camu, Reishi mushrooms, and Micro Algae.
In this, you should avoid the following, Seeing they Suppress your Immune system –
Processed Meats, Friend Foods, Soft drinks, Processed Baked Goods or Products with Artificial Sweeteners or Refined Sugars…
We cannot side-step Everything, but keep what you can in Moderation.
What helps a great deal, with the Flue and with your Immune System, that would be Vitamin C.
This would be really good, getting the vitamin from Fruits and Vegetables; which include – Berries, Citrus, Kiwi, Bell peppers and dark green Vegetables.
ONE thing I’d found out over time. As with Oranges – if you either just drink soft drinks with HIGH contents of Vitamin C, what most people don’t take into Consideration;
the Regularity of taking this Supplement is as important as taking it at all.
AND here’s just another idea for you – make SURE to eat the Fruit itself when you’ve got the Chance as the raw material of the Fruit helps your Digestive tract as well…
Good all around!
It’s important to use the Strong and Healthy Herbs and Spices.
When preparing food, take the time in using some of these in your meals;
Onions, Garlic, Black Peppercorn, Cayenne pepper, Allspice, Curry, and Turmeric.
All of them contain nutrients which help Boost your Immune System.
Keeping yourself well hydrated is very good. The water assist in the production of Lymph, which in turn help with White Blood Cells and help out your Immune System Cells as well.
For an extra boost, Use Lemon with your water or in the water some Vitamin C additive.
Our bodies need sleep to rejuvenate itself.
Yes, in our busy lives there’s not always the time in Resting and Relaxing as much as we should; YET, the more Regulated your Resting is, the better your Body would deal with any Potential Viruses AND with Stress being such a High Factor in our lives – Rest is Far More important today that we think!
A great deal of our Immune System and response, fighting against Foreign infections takes place from the GUT.
THUS, our Digestive tract is very important. That’s a very good reason to keeping the Good Bacteria where they need to be. If you have to, add some Probiotics as well, found in Whole and Fermented foods –
Raw sauerkraut, Miso, Yogurt, Kefir, Kimchi, and Microalgae.
Always consider the Supplements to take, making sure of their quality and positive impact on your Health.
I’ve got you a CATCH 22 situation for you as well.
You KNOW when the Doctor Prescribe you a Treatment of Antibiotics when there’s an Infection which your body is struggling to Beat…
Just remember that the Antibiotics, helping your body out – It also attack the Good Bacteria inside your body as well.
At all times See what is the best for you AND consult with either Your Doctor and or Chemist when they issue you some Medicine.
Find it there’s something better you can take, not creating more Damage than being good…
If and when You do get the chance, Keep yourself not Only Physically busy but make sure that You’d break a sweat.
Exercise if good for the body and help increase our Immune Functions, it also Improves the Quality of your sleep and make your body Stronger.
So, do a bit more than normal – don’t OVER do it either… Everything in moderation!
Getting some time in the SUN, which in turn would mean that you’re getting some Vitamin D is a really good Idea.
With this in mind, having some FUN in the Sun sounds as good,
Which in turn would help with Your relaxation and enjoyment of your time.
Allowing the Endorphins to run Wild in your body,
Generally making a Good Positive impact on you…
BUT most of all,
With everything I’ve mentioned here,
Taking care of yourself and then Your Loved ones,
That’s the Most Promising of all…
