Please remember – the most significant risk for illness in our area at the moment remains the influenza virus. Proactively supporting your immune system will help protect you from infection.
Going back to the basics of an overall healthy lifestyle will go a long way to boosting your overall immunity:
Eat a clean, whole foods diet with lots of plant foods and fiber. Maintaining digestive health is essential as 80% of your immune system resides in your gut. Remember to eat “every color, every day”.
Take your probiotics and eat gut-boosting fermented foods such as kimchi and sauerkraut.
Take a good quality, high-potency multivitamin and mineral supplement.
Avoid sugar, which suppresses the immune system.
Get at least 7-9 hours of good quality sleep.
Exercise moderately, daily if possible, especially outdoors.
Take Vitamin D and Omega 3 fish oils, both of which boost immunity.
Manage your stress – smile and laugh as often as possible.
We are here to help with your questions and provide you with acupuncture and herbal protocols to support a robust immune system.
We are at our best when we work together. We will get through this. Our community and the world will be healthier and happier.
