It’s that time of year again! That’s right, its cold and flu season! With the heavy rain and constant weather changes, it is not surprising that we have many colds and flu going around this year.
There are many things you can do for your body that can help boost your immune system and keep healthy! When looking at how to boost the immune system, start by looking at your sleep and food choices. Sometimes called the 3 pillars of health: sleep, food, and movement, all contribute to our overall health and help us to build a strong and durable immune system. It is essential to set ourselves up for success on a daily basis for long-term wellness and to avoid further health concerns.
Adding more naturally detoxifying foods to your diet can be a big help. Spices like garlic, turmeric are all great at helping to flush the system. One of the best things we can do this time of year, especially as stress levels start to rise with the holidays coming, is to not fight against what our bodies are trying to tell us, but rather listen and get in tune with what they really want! For example, it is common to crave heartier, and warmer, cozier options as the weather changes. Let’s listen to this! A hearty stew or soup would make an excellent choice here, and your body will thank you!
Incorporating Herbal Teas, Mushroom blends, Superfood Blends and Tinctures into your regime can also be helpful during Cold and Flu season.
