As the winters are around the corner, the weather is surely bringing the dreaded cold and flu season. We all try to make sure that that we don’t succumb to the viruses spreading around us, as once that flu or cold enters a household, it will definitely make its rounds to every family member.
Everyone prefers to have their own type of home remedy to deal with winter illness. Some people choose to take lots of rest while others generally prefer to visit their doctor for some over the counter treatments. However, rather than coping with the sickness, it is always better to avoid getting sick all together.
Here are six best natural ways to fight against flu by boosting the immune system all year round!!
1. A Daily Walk
Exercise is one of the major factors to boosting your immune system naturally along with increasing your overall health; however, you don’t need to go to a gym to reap all these benefits. Research done by two American universities showed that, doing a moderate exercise on a regular basis can help to reduce the risk of getting a cold by a third.
Moderate exercise includes something as simple as a daily walk. Moreover, the research also showed that the maximum benefits of daily exercise were noticed during the fall and winter season.
2. Get More Vitamin D
Many experts believe that vitamin D is one of the most important nutrients for a healthy immune system. No doubt our bodies produce vitamin D naturally, but we have to depend on the sun for this process. May be this is one of the main reason that we are likely to get sick more often in the Fall and Winter, as this is the time when we’re not exposed to as much sun as in the Spring and Summer.
A number of studies have shown that taking a vitamin D supplement can help to reduce your risk of getting the flu by 40 per cent. However, it is always recommend consulting your doctor before starting any supplement routine.
3. Use Turmeric while preparing dishes
There are a number of herbs and spices that provide great immune-boosting benefits, but among these all Turmeric is known as one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory spices. Turmeric is most commonly used in Indian cuisine and it gives a bright yellow colour to every dish it’s added to.
4. Use More Garlic
Garlic is a powerful natural immune booster because it has amazing natural anti-microbial properties; therefore, along with killing the harmful bacteria it also prevents their growth, which is very important for a healthy immune system. This natural antibiotic has one big benefit over over-the-counter antibiotics that bacteria generally do not develop a resistance to garlic’s anti-microbial properties as they mostly do with pharmaceuticals.
Apart from Turmeric and Garlic, Ginger is also regarded as one of the best natural immune booster. It helps keeping body warm and break down the accumulation of toxins in your organs, mainly the lungs, sinuses and lymphatic system. Keeping these crucial organs toxins free definitely help prevent illness and infection. Moreover, Ginger also has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and it promotes healthy sweating that can help fight the symptoms of cold and flu.
6. Drink plenty of fluids especially water
Stay Hydrated is one of the best tips that doctors usually give over and over again. It’s very important to keep our body hydrated as it’s one of the most important factors to a healthy immune system. Water helps to keep our system moving and expelling the things it doesn’t require, such as bacteria and viruses. Doctors generally recommend patients with flu to drink plenty of fluids and though broth, tea, and natural fruit juices all are fluids, the best form is good old H2O.
