Let’s see how to fall ill less and to strengthen your immune system with natural remedies.
Season changes, cold temperatures, stress, poor diet and the excessive use of antibiotics can weaken your immune system. In order to try and prevent the diseases and to strengthen your health, you can try many natural remedies, which are all very effective and free of side effects. Let’s see which ones are the best!
How to strengthen the immune system?
– Healthy diet. The first thing to do is to follow a healthy and balanced diet. Avoid eating junk food and vary your meals, eating a lot of fruits and vegetables. The best foods are those rich in vitamin C, like citrus fruits, carrots, kiwi, and tomatoes. Your diet should include also ginseng and garlic, which is a natural antibiotic. It is also perfect to prevent and treat seasonal illnesses.
– Natural probiotics. To strengthen the immune system, we need to rebalance the intestinal flora with lactic acid bacteria. In this way, the bacterial flora can help hindering the development of harmful microorganisms. In addition, lactic acid bacteria produce immuglobine. Unfortunately, not all of the bacteria contained in yogurts are able to survive the acidic environment of the stomach, so it is best to take probiotic supplements. You can find them at the pharmacy.
– Immunostimulant plants. Black currant and blue bindweed are excellent natural remedies to strengthen the immune system. You can buy them at the herbalist’s shop and take it as infusions, herbal teas or supplements.
– Rest, exercising and meditation. Stress weakens the immune system, so you should get rid of it. Try and sleep at least 8 hours every night and do relaxing activities to relieve the tension, like yoga and meditation. Finally, it is fundamental to exercise and give up your sedentary life to have a healthy body.
