Suddenly people have started taking all the necessary measures to boost their immunity, maintaining cleanliness taking preacautions and what not for so called CORONA VIRUS, Would’nt it have been better if these things were thought earlier and people being concerned for every disease and not just for particular one.
What is the reason that people are easily affected with the disease?
LOW IMMUNITY is it ?
So as the saying goes
“BETTER LATE THAN NEVER”
We better pledge for a healthy life and that too not just for a time being lets continue it all our lifes and ask others to follow the same.
Talking about immunity, it is something which can’t be felt, seen or measured as pulse or temperature but still a very important aspect in keeping our health checked. In scientific terms it is the body’s ability to protect itself from foreign invaders like viruses, disease and infection. It is a system that is constantly patrolling our body to detect and destroy infectious microbes.
“We are endowed with a great immune system that has been designed evolutionarily to keep us healthy,” says BRUCE POLSKY
[ MD, Medicine]
But the question is, why does our immunity drop and why do we get infections ?
Lifestyle aspects are very, very important, not eating healthy , being sedentary, not getting enough sleep and being under chronic stress can contribute to weak immune system. When your immune system is depleted, bacteria, viruses, or toxins can overwhelm the body. The result ? you get infectious diseases .
There’s no single pill or supplement you can take to boost your immune system. Instead, adopting these healthy living habits can improve your immunity for a lifetime.
- AVOID STRESS
- PROPER SLEEP
- AVOID TOBACCO & ALCOHOL
- MEDICINES (HOMEOPATHIC)
These are the few things we needs to be considered but right now lets just talk about the diet ( which helps us to stay away from infections) and some homeopathic medicine which helps in building the immunity.
FOODS TO INCLUDE IN OUR DIET :
- GARLIC – It has anti-viral and anti-biotic properties , consuming 2 clove daily on empty stomach will help us fight from infections and several diseases.
- TULSI – It has several beneficial properties which helps us in staying healthy. Adding it to the tea or chewing it direclty is generally advised.
- VITAMIN C & GINGER – Lemon and Amla are the ideal food for restoring immunity. It helps maintain the body’s internal ‘climate’ at a pH that supports healthy bacteria instead of the viruses and harmful bacteria which thrive in a more acidic environment. Consumption of lemon ginger tea twice daily will be a great idea
- CARROTS – Bugs bunny rarely came down with flu and there is the reason as they contain loads of beta-carotenes, which gets converted into vitamin A in the body,a powerful phytonutrient that boost the immune system’s production.
- BARLEY – This grain has all but disappeared from our kitchen needs to make a comeback. As it boost immunity, speeds healing and help antibiotics work better.
- SWEET POTATO – Is a brilliant antioxidant and also delivers lot of Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
- TURMERIC – It enhances immune function which helps fight viral infections. Could be consumed by adding to milk or as a spice to the food.
Along with this any physical activity in a day for 20 mins , adequate sleep for about 6-8 hours is very essential.
