Here are a few simple yet effective tips to boost your immune system so you can avoid the colds and flu's that are circulating around this time of year.
#1 Avoid the following foods/beverages as much as you can
- processed sugar
#2 Get a daily dose of ginger
Ginger's anti-inflammatory properties provide a boost to the circulatory system, and a healthy circulatory system improves your immune function. The less inflammation you have the more effectively your body will function and the better you'll feel!
#3 Get your ZZZZ's
Sleep deprivation will run down your immune system like nothing else. A lack of sleep throws off the hormones that control appetite, hunger, and blood sugar regulation (which means if you're sleep deprived you're more likely to crave the foods that will drag you down- see #1).
#4 Get 30 mins of exercise daily
Just 30 minutes of exercise a day will detox your lymphatic system and help your body defend against infections in a major way (and it goes without saying that regular exercise promotes healthy weight loss)!
#5 Drink green juice daily
When you're run down or sick, your body is in an acidic state and a feeding ground for bad bacteria and viruses. Green juice will balance this acidity, creating an environment bad bacteria and viruses hate... thus keeping you healthy!
