My Top 7 Natural Remedies To Boost Your Immune System

Getting sick is awful. It disrupts your routine and affects every sphere of your life.

Prevention is the best medicine.

Here are some of my favourite natural remedies that may prevent you from getting sick.

1.Juicing:

Healthy juicing is another way to detox your body and get rid of the toxins that make you sick. To keep your immune system going and working efficiently, it needs a regular boost of minerals and vitamins. This is easy to do with the help of juicing. Pack your juices with any combination of the following ingredients:

  • Apples
  • Carrots
  • Oranges
  • Grapefruit
  • Tomato
  • Kale
  • Turmeric
  • Celery
  • Beet
  • Strawberry
  • Mango
  • Ginger
  • Kiwi
  • Watermelon
  • Mint
  • Pumpkin seed
  • Spinach
  • Lettuce
  • Chia seeds

Play around with these ingredients to find tasty combinations that you prefer. These ingredients are rich in minerals like iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, folate, folic acid, fatty acids, and vitamins like A, B6, C and E.

2. Herbal teas:There is nothing easier than an herbal tea to keep your immune system going. Drink herbal teas after meals to help prevent illness. Some recommended herbal teas for fighting disease and illness are jasmine, mint, lemongrass, cinnamon, and ginger. These herbal teas contain antioxidants, which have anti-inflammatory properties. They also boost lymph flow and eliminate toxins.

3. Gentle daily movement – motion is lotion:

Either yoga, walking, tai chi or rebounding. All will work to support to digestive system, reduce stress and support healthy lungs and heart.  Rebounding is a safe, easy exercise that may keep you from getting sick. It is cheap, time efficient and convenient. To perform this exercise, just buy a small trampoline and jump on it a few times after you wake up. Deep breathing and a few gentle bounces are more than enough to circulate oxygen toward your tissues and remove harmful acids from your body.

4. Epsom Salt Bath:

A detox bath with Epsom salt is a great way to prevent the common cold. For Epsom salt detox bath, run a bath of warm water and add one cup of Epsom salt and a few drops of your favourite essential oil like lavender and vetiver.  Get in touch via my website to purchase these beautiful essential oils.

Lavender essential oil is a great choice trying to purify and cleanse your body. For better and more effective results, you can also add a little ground ginger and baking soda to your bath, too. This bath will help your body get rid of harmful toxins and provide overall health to your body. This bath will also help cleanse your thyroid, kidney, and liver.

5. Acupuncture:

Acupuncture is a type of alternative medicine common in China that stimulates the flow of lymph in your body, regulating your body’s processes of your body and fending off illness. It may help prevent diseases and illnesses like sinusitis, arthritis, colds, infections, flu and much more.

Acupuncture is administered by pushing thin needles into certain pressure points of your body. Search for professional clinics in your area. Some gyms and healing clinics also offer acupuncture services to their customers.  It was life changing for me when I broke my neck in my late 20’s.  it is brilliant for pain management and immune support.

6. Supplements:

The best supplements are based on whole foods, bio food or bioavailable. What that means is they are more easily absorbed and used in the body.   I highly recommend magnesium, zinc, B vitamins and Adaptogens as a good place to start.  If you are feeling low, tired, or stressed please get in touch so I can guide you to the best supplements for you.

7. Essential oils:

These are a gift from mother nature. They are derived from the stems, bark, flowers, resin, and roots of plants. Essential Oils can be profoundly effective in supporting the immune system, sleep, weight loss, cleansing and even balancing hormones.  Reach out to me so I can guide you to the best oils for your symptoms.  The most popular oils for my clients include Frankincense, lavender, copaiba, peppermint, lemon, and the citrus oils.  The range is huge and different oils work well for different ailments so get in touch so I can guide you.

No one likes getting sick. Before you reach for your medicine cabinet or take a trip to the doctor’s surgery and pharmacy, try a few of these natural remedies to keep your immune system fighting for you!

How To Start Your Day Off Right

Are you considering moving to clean eating, but cannot find the time to start?

It may be that clean eating sounds like an entire lifestyle shift, one that requires proper planning and proper initiation.

You may be putting it off until you get a few days off from work or when that one big project is over. You will keep looking for reasons to put off change until you realize that you can just break down that change into smaller pieces and start integrating it slowly into your life.

You will not be asked to change everything in order to live better and brighter; you only need to remember a few things as guiding principles to set out on a new journey.

Start your day by checking out the health of your tongue.  This will tell you a lot about your digestive system. A healthy tongue means a healthy digestive system. If you tongue is furry and coated, your digestive system needs some extra attention.

Oil pulling is an easy technique to do first thing.

Oil pulling with coconut oil and essential oils

Oil pulling is an amazingly effective advanced tools because it cleanses the mouth of bacteria and yeast.  This supports a healthy oral microbiome and healthy saliva production. We always start to heal digestive issues by looking at the health of the tongue, saliva, chewing and oral hygiene.

Oil pulling therapy is a simple, yet astoundingly effective method of cleansing the blood. It is helpful for numerous disorders, including blood diseases, lung and liver disorders, tooth and gum diseases, headaches, skin diseases, gastric ulcers, intestinal problems, poor appetite, heart and kidney ailments, encephalitis, nervous conditions, poor memory, female disorders, swollen face and bags under the eyes – so pretty much everything really!

The therapy consists of simply of swishing oil in the mouth.  Best done in the morning, preferably before breakfast.  Put 1 tablespoon of unrefined olive, coconut, or sesame oil along with 1-2 drops of peppermint or tea tree essential oil.

Do not swallow it.  Slowly swish the oil around, chew it, and draw it through your teeth for 3 to 4 minutes.  You do not want any of the released toxins to be reabsorbed so spit out after 4 minutes.  Spit the oil into the garden or garbage bin to prevent it from clogging your sink. Rinse your mouth with water and sea salt, then brush your teeth.

You will find that the oil takes on a milky white or yellowish colour as it becomes saturated with toxins and billions of destructive bacteria.

Follow this with tongue scraping and a glass of salty water to swish around and rinse your mouth.

Shake and wake to stimulate the lymphatic system. Take a few deep breathes and check in with how you are feeling. Observe nature, the sunrise, the birds and if possible, get outside first thing.  Feel connected to the infinite source of energy that is your birthright. Know that you can tap into this infinite source of energy at any time during the day by returning to the breath.

Choosing what you eat first thing is vital for energy and feeling great. Toast and Jam will not be enough.

One of the most important aspects of clean eating is what you choose to eat. That does not mean just planning meals according to the old school food pyramid; it means that whatever you choose to eat, the closer it is to its natural state, the better it is for you.

Try to avoid foods that have been refined, processed, or preserved. It is always better to go natural to benefit from inherent nutrients without the chemicals or preservatives that may reduce a food’s natural goodness.

When you are trying to eat clean, it is also a good idea to eat organic. In this day and age, enhancements and hormone treatments have crept into all kinds of foods. This ends up having an adverse effect on your health even if you are eating what you should in all the right quantities. It is important to start choosing organic; a little vigilance goes a long way.

Always read labels. They give away everything you need to know about the food you are buying. In general, the more ingredients a product contains, the higher chances there are that the food is processed. Even if you try eating healthy, there is a chance that the products you buy may contain preservatives, artificial sweeteners, and colours that make the healthy, unhealthy. Read the label to make sure that the yogurt you add to your bowl of berries is not going to ruin your clean eating.

The simplest trick to eating clean is to remember the eating clean equals to eating greens. Start your day with a green juice or smoothie.

This is the bare minimum to jumpstart into clean eating. Try your hardest to incorporate leafy greens into whatever you are preparing for healthy servings of vitamins A, C, and E, as well as increased fiber, which boosts your metabolism by assisting digestion.

By filling you up with the least number of calories but the most amount of nutrients, leafy greens help you to be healthy with just one color. This is an easy place to start. With the myriad smoothie and salad recipes out there today, leafy greens can always find a way into your diet.

Try this adrenal healing juice if you are feeling wired, tired, and overwhelmed.

Ingredients

  • Handful of basil leaves
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 handful of kale
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 200ml coconut water

Directions

Wash and juice all the ingredients except the chia seeds. This recipe works better in a slow masticating juicer. If you don’t have a slow juicer you are better off juicing the carrots and cucumber, then mixing in the leafy greens in the blender. After juicing all of the veggies, stir in the chia seeds and allow to sit for 8-10 minutes for the chia to swell.

Stir again and enjoy!

We have talked about adding to your clean diet. Now let us talk about omission. One of the simplest things you can omit for maximum effect is artificial sugar. Start identifying all things that contain artificial sweeteners.

Drop that can of fizzy, say no to biscuits and cakes, and you are on your way to clean eating. Watch how your energy stabilizes and your mood lifts when you leave out artificial sugar that plays havoc with your blood sugar levels.

Clean eating does not have to be difficult or intimidating. Start small and implement easy, gradual changes into your regular eating habits to get yourself on the right path toward better health.

Start your day in the right way and quickly see the benefits.

Juicing Tips – What To Do With All The Left Over Pulp?

Another significant benefit of juicing is all the leftover pulp. This is a natural by-product of juicing. The juice contains concentrated amounts of nutrients; the pulp retains the fibre and a substantial amount of the nutrients as well.

  • Put it into cakes and slices – re-use pineapple and apple pulp in our home made cakes or fruit slice.
  • Pulp is great for garden compost – except citrus.
  • Put pulp to worm and pig farms – they both love it!
  • In the winter it is great in porridge – especially apple as it gives a great flavour and excellent amount of fibre
  • Concerned about extra fibre, add a teaspoon of the fibre to your juice – stir it in and sip away!
  • Also put left over grated carrot fibre into the evening meal – kids won’t notice ad it is very good for them.
