October 2020 - Strengthening the immune system

It is flu season again...!

If our immune system is too weak in autumn and winter, we become very vulnerable.

An intact immune system protects us from pathogens such as bacteria, viruses and fungi - but also from the development of cancer, allergies and autoimmune diseases. 

 

There are many ways to build a healthy immune system naturally. Above all, the following factors have a positive effect on the immune system:

 

Sufficient sleep, not smoking and alcohol in moderation

Whoever sleeps an average of 7.5 hours (bedrooms should be kept cool, dark and free of electro-smog), consumes alcohol in moderation and does not smoke, not only strengthens his immune system but also lives healthier and happier.

 

 

Regular exercise and healthy nutrition

Sport and exercise are the best medicine! Train for 30-45 minutes, three times a week (jogging, swimming or cycling) and eat a healthy diet.

This includes five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, lots of cereals and potatoes, fish once or twice a week, avoid low fat, sugar and above all drink lots of water.

 

 

Fill up on vitamin C

Start the day with a fresh lemon! First thing every morning, drink a glass of warm water with the freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon.

 

 

* If vitamin C is not supplied in sufficient quantity, this can lead to a vitamin C deficiency. Symptoms of vitamin C deficiency:

Arthrosis, limb and headaches, nosebleeds, bleeding gums, periodontosis, wound healing disorders, increased susceptibility to infections, allergy tendency, oxidative stress, fatigue, depression, chronic diseases.

To compensate for these deficiencies, a high-dose vitamin C infusion therapy is recommended.
