Cold, foggy mornings and abrupt weather changes remind us mercilessly that autumn is definitely on its way. And with it comes the season of various respiratory diseases. But this autumn will be much more challenging than the previous ones. In addition to the usual colds and viruses, we also have to face the coronavirus, for which there is no commonly available cure or vaccine yet. But there is no need to panic. We may not have a cure for Covid-19 yet, but each of us can effectively strengthen our immunity. In our article you will find simple natural tips on how to do it.
What is immunity and how does it work?
In very simple terms, immunity is the ability of our body to defend itself against negative external and internal influences. When it works properly, it protects us from various diseases, harmful substances, but it also makes us cope better with stress. The immunity of a healthy person who does not suffer from any chronic diseases is directly related to his/her lifestyle. Smoking, sedentary jobs and lifestyles, as well as excessive alcohol and junk food consumption reduce your immunity. A healthy lifestyle, on the other hand, strengthens it.
How to boost immunity fast and without chemistry
You don’t have to buy out the pharmacy right away to improve your immunity. For starters, you just need to make small changes in your life. Limit vices and include health walks. Herbs are also a very effective weapon, especially sea buckthorn and echinacea. If herbs don’t do it for you, reach for honey, garlic or ginger. You can also give your immunity a kick if you follow the following rules:
- Don’t disturb your sleep! It is optimal to sleep at least 7 hours a day
- Sleep well! It’s never too late to toughen up. You can start at virtually any time and at any age
- Go healthy! A balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals has been shown to have a positive effect on the human immune system
- Move! You simply can’t do it without regular exercise. Moreover, movement not only improves your physical health, but also your psyche, as it effectively relieves stress
Purity half health
Colds, colds, viruses, flu and a new type of coronavirus all have one thing in common. They are infectious respiratory diseases. Thorough hand hygiene is simply essential. Ordinary soap is sufficient to wash hands, but the correct technique and length of washing are important. Ideally, wash your hands for 40 s. If you cannot wash your hands, use a hand sanitizer.
