It’s a sick season, but it doesn’t have to be for you!
Below are a few holistic ways you can keep your immunity up this fall:
- Balanced Diet: Include immune-boosting foods such as ginger, turmeric, citrus fruits, and green tea. For your gut health, eat more fiber, probiotic-rich foods (i.e., kimchi, apple cider vinegar, kefir), and prebiotic foods (flax seeds, legumes, whole grains).
- Supplement Wisely: Vitamin D and Vitamin C are essential. I love the supplements from Cymbiotika. They are as clean and effective as you can find. I love: Liposomal Vitamin C, Liposomal Vitamin D3 + K2 + CoQ10, Liposomal Vitamin B12 + B6 and Magnesium L-Threonate
- Hydrate: Drink plenty of water to maintain proper bodily functions and support the immune system. I think adding Pure Hydration is helpful.
- Adequate Sleep: Prioritize quality sleep, aiming for 7-9 hours per night. A well-rested body is better equipped to fight off infections.
- Stress Management: Chronic stress can weaken the immune system—practice stress-reduction techniques like meditation, deep breathing, mindfulness, or yoga.
- Moderate Alcohol Consumption: Excessive drinking can weaken the immune system.
- Regular Movement: Moderate exercise can reduce inflammation and help immune cells regenerate regularly.
- Social Connections: Meaningful connections are essential. Positive social interactions can have a positive impact on your immune system.
- Practice Good Hygiene: Seems obvious, but wash your hands!
- Take Care of Your Gut Health: all the above practices are good for your gut health! Your gut health is SO important. In another blog post, I wrote about this supplement, but ARMRA is amazing for supporting gut health. I take it daily.
I am not a professional/doctor/holistic doctor; just things that I stand by through personal experience! Go forth at your discretion! 🙂
Stay happy and healthy! xo
