HOW TO KEEP YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM STRONG

The most important action you can take right now to keep your body healthy, is to keep your immune system strong.
Most of you know the basics.
Eat healthy. Consume less processed food and sugar, more fruits and vegetables. Since we are home, you have all the time you need to cook healthy food. Pull out those cookbooks that have been collecting dust on the shelf and be creative. A good friend shared with me her idea of cooking food from different parts of the world and incorporating themes into your dinner time. Great Idea for teaching your children about different cultures and traditions.

Get 7-8 hours of sleep every night.
Meditate at least 5 minutes every day. Reducing stress is paramount to a healthy immune system. I know for many of us, this is challenging right now. A daily mindfulness and meditation practice will literally reduce your stress hormones.
Basic supplements that help the immune system include;
Vitamin C 3,000 mg/day. Vit D 2-5,000 IU/day. Zinc picolinate 45mg/day, Cortisol balancing supplements are also important.
Antivirals include; Monolaurin, Lysine, Oregano Oil.
I sell all of the above at my clinic. Additionally, I prescribe anti-viral Chinese Herbal formulas and other products that have been researched to increase the immune system response.
Keep Calm & Stay Healthy!
