You have the power to improve your immune function today! With all the news surrounding the #coronavirus I wanted to share a few simple ways you can improve your #immunesystem and #wellness with #1stephealthier and #foodasmedicine.
1. Always select organic alkaline foods, especially when the goal is to boost immune system function. Selecting conventional or genetically modified foods add more toxins for your immune system to process and detoxify and will weaken your immune function.
Top alkaline foods – Organic avocado, spinach, broccoli, almonds, celery, bell peppers, garlic, kale, cauliflower, cucumber, beets, asparagus, lemon, and basil.
Top immune boosting foods - Organic green tea, garlic, onion, and mushrooms.
2. Avoid alcoholic beverages, refined sugar, refined carbohydrates, ultra-processed foods ex. Fast food, White bread, anything that is in a box, all of which decrease immune system function.
3. Incorporate natural anti-virals to boost immune function – it is recommended to discuss with your Functional Medicine Physician prior to starting a nutraceutical regiment.
