Let's take action to keeping our bodies and environment naturally strong with these immune boosting recipes that assist to enhance the immune system, decrease free radicals in the body and help us to be our best selves each and every day!
What happens when the immunity is down?
One of the big things I notice with my kids when they get a cold or virus is their sinuses act up and major fatigue sets in. Asthma is also a big side effect of colds and sickness. It is inflammation of the lungs that needs an anti-inflammatory [source]. Anti-inflammatory ingredients include turmeric, ginger and cinnamon help the immunity and heal the body. If the inflammation or virus turns into bacteria it needs an anti-bacterial solution, which can be found in coconut oil, garlic and onion [source]. So bring on the coconut, onions and garlic when sick!
I remember as a kid having my mom tie garlic to my nightgown with a safety pin to help decrease fevers. Today when I get sick I take one garlic clove mashed and mixed with 1 tablespoon of apple sauce. Choke it down in one gulp to get those antioxidants in the body. Try it if you can, because I promise it truly helps.
And also these easy gluten-free immune boosting recipes and supplements can help with overall health and immunity boosting so lets implement them year-round.
