Home remedies to strengthen the immune system

Posted on April 14, 2014 by in Health care

Home remedies to strengthen the immune system

boost-the-immune-systemPeople with weakened immune systems are more likely to suffer frequent bouts of colds, flu and some of these minor infections.

Antibiotics are drugs certainly excellent, but the reckless use of them is not recommended.

It is a mistaken belief that antibiotics can treat and cure all bacterial and viral infections. Antibiotics have no effect on viruses and unnecessary administration can backfire.

You can make your body become resistant to the antibiotic and this leads to reduced immunity.

A natural antibiotic can be a good alternative to help prevent the damage that drugs can cause when taken without being needed. Besides natural antibiotics can ease symptoms and often the cause too.

Your immune system is the first line of defense against invading organisms such as bacteria, pathogens, viruses, parasites or anything that could potentially cause disease. The spleen, thymus, tonsils and lymph system are all part of this extensive network of organs, tissues and cells including white blood cells, which help the body to self heal.

Herbs and natural foods should become a part of your daily routine to strengthen this complex system.

Immune

to include a variety of fruits and vegetables in the diet strengthens the immune system
A weak immune system must be either primary or acquired factors. The primary factors are mostly due to a genetic predisposition.

Acquired factors are due to dietary habits, lifestyle and overuse of medicines for minor ailments such as the common cold, etc..

There is scientific evidence that a natural diet, herbal antibiotics and active lifestyle, stimulates and strengthens your immune system health to prevent diseases like simple common cold and serious diseases like cancer.
Food recommended to strengthen the immune system

A healthy diet strengthens the immune system. But there are certain foods that give you even more strength.

Red meat

Red meat is high in zinc, a mineral that strengthens the white blood cells that are responsible for raising defenses against viruses. The recommended amount for benefits is two 4-ounce servings of lean meat a week.
garlic

Garlic contains 70 different sulfur compounds, which are essential for the production of white blood cells. The daily consumption of one or two cloves of garlic up defenses by 40 %.

Garlic can also act as an antioxidant to reduce the accumulation of free radicals in the bloodstream. While there is no proven evidence, it is believed that garlic may protect against cancer.

It is also a very beneficial food for the heart because it prevents platelets from sticking together and clogging blood vessels.
Fruits and vegetables in bright colors

Citrus fruits, strawberries, spinach, peppers and other fruits and vegetables contain colorful twice the disease-fighting antioxidants than fruits and vegetables pale colors.

Beta carotene is a powerful antioxidant that gives yellow and orange fruits and vegetables. It also increases the number of infection-fighting cells and helper T cells. Furthermore, removes excess free radicals in the body which accelerates aging.

Like vitamins C and E, beta carotene reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by interfering with how the fats and cholesterol in the bloodstream oxidize.

Beta carotene protects against cancer by stimulating the immune cells called macrophages which kill cancer cells. Beta carotene is the best known carotenoid, but there are others.

Researchers believe that beta carotene does not work alone but works in conjunction with other carotenoids. For this reason, it is best to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables instead of taking a beta carotene supplement.

On the other hand we have bioflavonoids, a group of phytonutrients that help strengthen the immune system, protecting the body’s cells against environmental pollutants. Throughout the cell membrane microscopic spaces are called receptors.

Contaminants, toxins or germs are left in these spaces and slowly eat the cell membrane. Bioflavonoids fill these spaces so leave no toxins and other contaminants.
Avoid fried foods

Fried foods like French fries are loaded with trans fats, compounds that make the body more vulnerable to infections that weaken the immune system.
white Tea

White tea contains antioxidants that strengthen the immune system and inhibit the growth of microbes that cause pneumonia, throat infections and even germs that cause decay.

White tea especially helps fight the flu and strep throat. The tea leaves are minimally processed and are steamed and dried in order to maintain the freshness of the leaves. The Chinese used this tea for many years to protect against germs.
Diet for chronic diseases

I found this plan to heal chronic diseases in a book and found it very good. The book is called Old Fashioned Health Remedies that Work Best and wrote a naturopath called LL Schneider. The plan is to

1. Fully Eliminate processed foods, ready meals, canned foods with dyes and preservatives, etc..

2. Before starting the new diet let your system rest for a day. Stay away from worries, things that cause you stress or tension.

3. Enema Apply to improve elimination.

4. Their body is now ready to start. Eat enough fruit and vegetable juices (made in the juicer ), also fruits and raw vegetables. Only meats that are high in nutrients such as liver.

5. Maintain this diet until the symptoms of the disease begin to disappear. Then gradually start adding other foods to the diet. Make sure you start adding foods rich in nutritional value and no empty calories.

Likeness of fruits and vegetables to the body’s organs

Vitamins and minerals that are good to raise defenses
Vitamin A, C and E

These are the vitamins essential for maintaining the health of the immune system. A handful of almonds a day will give you enough vitamin E. guavas, oranges and other citrus fruits are a natural source of vitamin C.
zinc

Zinc is another element that is essential to raise the defenses. This second element is iron according to its concentration in the body. Its deficiency can affect the immune system in more ways than one.

Zinc acts as a catalyst for the immune system to kill pathogens and is necessary for white blood cells to carry out their functions.

Peanuts, peanut butter, legumes and dark meat of chicken, beef and lamb are excellent sources of zinc.

Six ounces of natural and fresh yogurt each day keeps the healthy intestinal flora for proper digestion. The bacteria in yogurt convert lactose in milk to lactic acid, which is ideal for maximizing calcium absorption and prevent vaginal and bladder infections.

Among the herbs that benefit the immune system, it is worth mentioning echinacea and Ayurvedic herb Ashwagandha ( Withania somnifera ) for its effect to stimulate the immune system.

There is an old saying that when in doubt : back to nature. A natural lifestyle and home cooking, along with daily exercise will keep away many ailments.
