Are you sick of being sick? Do this to improve your immune system...
I hope you are doing well! I'm having a good week, but I'm getting prepared for it to rain a lot. Starting tomorrow, it's supposed to rain for the next 6 days! Sometimes a little rain is nice, but when it rains here, everything floods and it makes me not want to go anywhere. I guess I can't complain too much because it's not too cold and we don't have snow. Speaking of cold weather, I was talking to my sister today and she said that everyone she knows is sick. Since it is warmer here, I often forget that it's cold season. What about you? Did you get sick this winter? Did you know that 80% of your immune system is located in your gut? That means that if your digestion is poor or not working as well as it could be (which it isn't for most people), there is a better chance that you might get sick. Your gut is actually the doorway to ultimate health. Your skin, hair, immune system, and the health of your mind all depend on it. How does the health of your gut get disrupted?
digestive distress (low stomach acid)
What can you do to improve the health of your gut?
Eat fermented food and drinks such as raw sauerkraut, coconut water kefir, kombucha, kimchi
Eat prebiotic foods such as raw chicory root, raw banana, asparagus, raw dandelion greens, raw garlic
Remove any built up toxins from your gut by following a whole foods cleanse such as my 5 Day Group Cleanse for Beginners. You can read more about it by clicking here. It is a 5 day group cleanse and will be held February 6-10 (after the Superbowl) and you can sign up now for only $47! (You can also read about my 14 Day Cleanse by clicking on that same link.The 14 Day Cleanse is a little more intense and is designed to help you discover if you have any hidden food intolerances.) Following a cleanse can help improve your immunity, but it can also help you lose weight,improve stress, increase your energy,get rid of food cravings, improve digestion and skin, etc. So, if you're ready to become the best version of yourself, I would love to have you cleanse with me in February!
Eat foods that are good for immune health such as
green foods, any foods rich in chlorophyll
coconut or coconut oil
berries of any kind
raw apple cider vinegar
herbs and spices: ginger, garlic, oregano, turmeric, black pepper
turkey, kefir, yogurt
Superfoods like chlorella, camu camu, bee pollen
I hope this helps!
