Alert! How to boost your immune system to cope with flu and other infectionsEquipo de Soporte
Influenza in general is responsible for nearly five million illnesses and more than 700,000 deaths each year. Now the authorities’ concern is exacerbated by the unexpected spike that is occurring at the moment due to the recent change in the rules on the use of masks.
Strong defences are the best prevention against virus infections and to escape unscathed from this lethal threat. The right diet can be the basis for a strong and effective immune system. Certain foods are particularly suitable for this. Here are some of the easiest to obtain and often overlooked.
Citrus fruits. – Especially oranges and lemons. They are rich in vitamin C, which favours the defences and alleviates the symptoms if we are infected. (If necessary, we can also resort to extra doses through supplements that can be found in pharmacies and nutritional establishments).
Eggs. – Without abusing them (between 3 and 5 per week), they provide zinc and selenium, two essential minerals for the immune system.
Fermented foods. – They contain probiotics that are essential for an adequate and balanced intestinal flora, essential for combating viruses. This group includes sauerkraut, which can be added to salads, as well as unpackaged kefir.
Ginger. – A root with medicinal properties that fights viruses and bacteria as well as acting as a natural expectorant and anti-inflammatory (consult your doctor if you have high blood pressure before taking a ginger-based remedy).
Garlic and onion. – They increase the immune system and are also effective against viruses and bacteria. If their natural taste is not particularly pleasant to you, there are many ways to incorporate them into your diet, masking that special taste by preparing them with other foods. You can find plenty of suggestions for this on the internet.
We do not fail to recommend a good night’s rest (7 to 8 hours of restful sleep) and keeping the body from getting cold, as the body’s defences are considerably affected when you do not get enough rest and also when the body temperature drops.
Finally, a good energy balance is essential to cope with infections. In energetic medicine, it is considered that these infections take their toll especially on people who have altered their organism at this vibrational level. The ARE X3 Pro device has automatic balancing and immune system strengthening programmes at the vibrational levels mentioned above. Use them on a regular basis and check the results.
