This means you ability to fight bugs and viruses is severely hampered through eating these foods. What is worse, sugary foods are actually the preferred foods of bacteria, so you are feeding them when you are eating these foods.
- VITAMIN C – chew on 1-2 Chewable vitamin Cs per day as a daily boost to our immune system. When feeling under the weather, you could take up to 10-12 chewable per day, however should you get the runs, you have had too much,
- EXERCISE– Moving your body energises the system. Regular exercise increases the strength of the body, and provides energy to our cells and brain. This too helps boost the immune system
- SPEAK GOOD THINGS – Our mental attitude can affect up to 75% of our physical physiology. Our words have power over our health and well being. Instead of saying, I feel sick, focus on the words, I am getting better.
