Summer is over. School has started and so let the germs begin! I’m already hearing from clients telling me their kids have just started school and brought home a cold or flu. Of course I tell them to start on the bone broths, toss out the sugar, always eat immune building foods (antioxidants) and start taking Vitamin C. Actually, you should start doing this to prevent illness. Remember, you’re eating to heal  Eat foods that are nutrient-dense, properly prepared and doing the body good not harm. Here’s some things you can do to start building your immune system.

Vitamin C – One of my favs. Not only does it build your immune system, fights on free radicals that damage your DNA, helps with cardiovascular disease by reducing our risk of plaque buildup, speeds up the respiratory conditions associated with the common cold, prevents eye disease, help protects against certain cancers and wrinkles! Good sources of Vitamin C – Citrus fruits, asparagus, berries, broccoli, cabbage, melon (cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon), cauliflower, citrus fruits (lemons, limes, oranges), kiwi, dark leafy greens (kale, spinach), peppers (especially red bell peppers, which have among the highest per-serving vitamin C content), apples, and tomatoes.

Aloe Vera – This plant is a powerhouse of antioxidants. It contains Vitamin C, E, B12 and A. Has minerals, folic acid, fatty acids, enzymes and it reduces inflammation. It’s great for healing the gut! It’s used as ointment for skin issues, can be used as a mouthwash instead of using those toxic ones. No wonder is great for the immune system. If you purchase Aloe Vera, please read your labels! Look for International Aloe Science Council as they have a certification program that validates the quality of aloe Vera.

Garlic – I loooove garlic! My husband probably wishes I didn’t love it so much. I love the smell and the taste it brings to food. When I feel like I’m getting sick, I eat a lot of garlic as its properties are high in a sulfur compound called Allicin, which is believed to bring most of the health benefits. It’s known to give your immune system a boost, prevent or shortens the lengths of a cold or flu.

Hydrate – The Power Of Hydration! Water is by far the most important essential (essential means your body cannot make it) nutrient for the body. You can go eight weeks without food, but only days without water! It makes up 55-60% of our total body mass and it’s found in all tissues of our body. I wrote an article about this magical essential nutrient. Click here to read all the benefits – http://eattoheal.net/the-power-of-hydration/
