HEAL, RESTORE, RENEW… REPEAT
‘Cut the pill-popping!’ But then, how do you beat that nasty bug? Simple - allow your immune system to fight back. And remember to help maintain your ‘inner army’!
Much like a house requires strong foundations, so does our immune system. No wolf must be allowed to blow it down with a huff and a puff. The ‘wolf ’- dangerous bugs - must be stopped by a build-up of immunity. Like the wise little pig who built his house of bricks, we must work to build up our inner citadel. And maintain it, for the ‘wolf’ is an ever-lurking menace.
WHAT IS THE ‘IMMUNE SYSTEM’?
It’s a complex system of cells, tissues, organs and molecules that’s part of our body’s network of defence against disease. Just like we are a part of the world, the immune system is part of our body’s larger ecosystem – our mind, body and spirit - and reacts to what is happening within. Like hair-growth or weight-loss, immunity doesn’t happen in a snap, and it varies from person to person.
BUILD IMMUNITY THROUGH HEALTHY LIVING
Laugh: Trigger the release of neuropeptides, dopamine and endorphins, all feel-good hormones.
Call friends: Being social boosts well-being and immunity.
Herbal mocktails: A delicious brew of lemon, honey, ginger, and turmeric in warm water increases immunity against colds.
Eat more citrus: Vitamin C-rich fruit help growth, development and repair of body tissues.
Go nuts on seeds: Add these Omega 3, zinc, and magnesium powerhouses to salads and sabzis as well.
Stop smoking and drink in moderation: Smoking and excessive alcohol lower antioxidants and adversely affect the immune response of the stomach.
Move: Exercise improves cardiovascular health and blood pressure, and controls weight. Plus, it gives you feel-good endorphins.
Sleep: Eat light, avoid coffee before bed and create bedtime rituals for regenerating, quality rest
Get some ‘sunshine vitamin’: The sun’s early morning UVB rays lead to Vitamin D synthesis in our bodies, helping bone health and overall immunity.
Meditate: Quiet your mind, breathe deeply, and let oxygen and harmony work their magic.
