Here are a few of my favorite tips to keep you in top form until it’s time to put the snow boots away:
1.) Show sugar the door
If you do nothing else this winter, dump sugar – it’s the most important thing you can do to help yourself stay well. It’s weakening your immune system at the time of year when you need it working overtime.
2.) Dig into fermented foods
As it houses roughly 70% of your immune system, a happy, healthy gut will be less vulnerable to every wave of cooties that sweep through your office. How to feed it well? Add fermented foods, like sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, kefir and raw, organic apple cider vinegar to your menu.
3.) Gobble up greens
Doing so will deliver the phytonutrients and fiber that make your good belly bacteria thrive – and keep your immune system defenses strong enough to fight off opportunistic bugs.
4.) Stock up on garlic and onions – and use liberally
Garlic is packed with anti-viral, antibacterial and antifungal compounds that help repel the bad guys and onions are especially strong in the antibacterial department.
5.) Give your body some extra TLC
- Don’t skimp on sleep
- Drink a lot – Of water that is, not alcohol.
- Keep moving
- Unwind more often
- Take a wintertime sunbath
6) Send in the supplement cavalry.
To make sure those wintertime ills don’t have a fighting chance, stack the deck some more in your favor. In addition to eating and treating your body well, add a few supplements to the mix. Among my favorites to support wintertime immunity:
- NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine)
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D3
- Antiviral Herbs
- Myer’s cocktail
