A healthy immune system can literally save your life. I’m going to show you in 5 simple steps how to boost your immune system!
Why is a healthy immune system important?
Most people don’t realize how critical a strong immune system is.
Your Immune system doesn’t just keep you from getting a cold or the flu. Your immune system is what literally fights every disease that could attack your body!
About 78% of your immune system is in your gut. So having a healthy gut flora is KEY to a strong immune system.
So how do you achieve a healthy gut flora?
- Take a probiotic
- Implement fermented foods in your diet. Your ancestors practiced this daily. It is something as a modern society we have lost. Fermented foods include: Saurkraut, Kimchee, Kombucha, and Keifer to name a few.
What vitamins boost my immune system?
Getting enough vitamin D daily can really help boost your immune system and it’s one of the quickest ways as well.
Our bodies need sunlight! Basking in the sun for 20 minutes a day can be just what you are missing.
Not only will this give you some much needed vitamin D but it will also boost your mood. NO more winter blues!
If your not getting this I recommend taking a tvitamin D3 supplement
Vitamin C is also a great immune system enhancer. A suggested does is about 1000 to 2000 mg of vitamin C daily
What herbs can boost your immune system?
Taking herbal formulas such as Astragalus, Olive Leaf, and Echinacea, are wonderful ways to achieve a strong immune system.
Medicinal mushrooms are also very enhancing to your immune system. I recommend Host Defense spray
What essential oils are best for the immune system?
Using essential oils such as 4 thieves, Ravensara, and doTerra’s on guard are super ways to get results fast!
How does sleep effect the immune system?
As we discussed in our new year’s healthy resolutions post, sleep is so important!
Getting the rest your body needs plays a key factor. Your body regains its strength through sleeping, giving your cells time to re-generate and fight the battles they need to. So snuggle up with your favorite person or pet and dream away…..
