In the midst of flu season, I want to be proactive in supporting my immune system. Here’s some of what my family and I are doing to try to stay healthy.
1. Drink bone broth
My slow cooker has been running non-stop making batches of bone broth. Drinking a steaming mug of beef bone broth is a wonderful way to strengthen the immune system.
2. Increase the humidity
I run vaporizers 24/7. It’s so important to increase the humidity in our home and ensure that our home is a much healthier and pleasant place to live. Read more here.
3. Take time to relax
We enjoy a relaxing tea time every afternoon. Want to be more relaxed and creative in the afternoon? Tea might be the perfect afternoon beverage. Read more here.
4. Get moving and get rest
We go for walks, try to get proper sleep, and strength train. Barbell training is a perfect prescription for maintaining good health. It’s never too late to start an exercise program.
5. Take supplements
I know I’m not getting enough daily sun so I take vitamin D3 every day.
6. Eat fermented foods for gut health
I try to include fermented foods like yogurt and sauerkraut in our diets. Gut health is key to boosting the immune system.
7. Get enough protein
Maintaining good muscle mass is essential for good health. Since John and I are over 60, we get at least 30 grams of high quality protein in three separate meals a day. Remember, muscle is the organ of longevity. Here’s how I make a perfect steak or quick and easy pan-seared salmon.
8. Eat like my life depends upon it
For a healthy immune system, I try to avoid refined sugars, processed foods, and empty carbs.
I always love hearing how you’re doing. Leave a comment (comments are awesome) or email me back and let me know. Or if you’re on Instagram or Facebook? Come say hi.
I hope you’re feeling your best.
