As we head into fall and the weather starts to change, cold and ﬂu season arrives. While we may be told to get the ﬂu shot, wash our hands and bundle up, these measures often don’t keep us from getting sick. Fortunately, there are many preventive measures you can take to dramatically reduce your chances of getting sick and lessen the severity and duration of infections. Adequate sleep, stress reduction, regular exercise and a healthy diet are essential for a robust immune system.
Your kitchen is a great place to practice preventive healthcare every day by using food as medicine. Fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds contain vitamins A, C, zinc and other nutrients that support the immune system. Herbs and spices such as oregano, thyme and cinnamon are anti-viral and anti-bacterial. Traditional medicines like Astragalus root and shitake mushrooms are immune boosting powerhouses. Additionally, reﬁned sugars suppress your immune system for several hours after consumption. Avoiding reﬁned sweeteners and highly processed foods is essential to keep your immune system functioning optimally.
