How to Strengthen Your Immune System – Four Simple Strategies

By Parthasarathy Rengaswami

As you know, your immune system is responsible for keeping your body strong and healthy and protecting it from attacks by harmful bacteria. People who have a strong immune system remain largely healthy and are less sensitive to common health hazards like infection. Some others find that they are prone to fall sick at the slightest provocation. The structure of your immune system is partly shaped by genetic factors. But the good news is that you can strengthen your immunity from health hazards by following some simple strategies.

Two basic requirement for a strong immune system is a body that has adequate rest and is nurtured by a healthy alkaline diet. Alkalinity is associated with your body’s ability to take in more oxygen and oxygen is the key to immunity from health problems. It is not difficult to ensure that your body gets the needed level of alkalinity. All you need to do is to make your diet rich in alkaline content. Here are four strategies you should follow to improve your immune system.

1. The easiest way to provide your body with alkalinity is to eat foods with rich nutrition. Taking a diet that has about 50 percent raw foods is the simplest recipe for an alkaline diet. It is well known that processed food, cooked food and baked food can trigger inflammation in some part of your body. Taking raw foods will ensure that this will not happen.

2. An ideal meal should have about 80 percent vegetables and 20 percent meat. If you can make it 100 percent vegetarian, it will be wonderful. Choose organic vegetables and meat not exposed to antibiotics and feel safe. Avoid processed food to the extent possible since processed food can create acidity. While alkalinity fosters immunity, acidity fosters diseases.

3. Your body needs to remain hydrated. You should drink a lot of water. Water will not only provide your body with the needed quantity of fluids but will also flush out toxins and acids. Other liquid diets that will be good for hydrating your body without causing any ill effect are herbal tea, chamomile tea and ginger juice.

4. Supplement your diet with Vitamins C, D and E and Calcium. These four supplements both act independently and in unison, thus offering a double benefit. Vitamin C is found in a number of substances like lemon, kale, broccoli, strawberry, papaya, pineapple etc. You can get Vitamin D from mushrooms, milk and eggs and Vitamin E from Almonds, Spinach, Broccoli. Apart from milk products, soybeans, leafy greens, fortified cereals etc. are rich in calcium.
