Immune System Support

The immune system is critical to health. It keeps the body alive and functioning in the midst of a world full of potential diseases like viruses, bacteria, fungus and parasites. Pathogens can enter the body in a multitude of ways and it is impossible to avoid all potential exposures. A healthy immune system is the best defense against acute exposures and also for long term protection against chronic illnesses like cancer and autoimmune disorders.

Diet is critical for immune health. Real, nutrient dense foods provide the body with the vitamins and minerals it needs to support the immune system. Processed foods and environmental toxins depress the immune system and leave the body vulnerable to infection.

Diet and Lifestyle Suggestions

  • Avoid all processed foods. Incorporate organic, pastured foods where possible. Quality counts!
  • Avoid all Sugar immediately suppresses the immune system. Be cautious with processed foods. Even foods that do not seem sweet can be high in added sugars (like ketchup and other sauces). Stevia is a suitable substitute for sugar.
  • Eat good quality protein, preferably organic or pastured. Good sources include: beef, poultry, fish, seafood, game and eggs.
  • Nuts and seeds provide healthy fatty acids, proteins and minerals. Good sources include: almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, chia seeds, filberts, flaxseed, hemp seeds, macadamia nuts, etc.
  • Eat an abundance of vegetables. You cannot eat too many. Focus on dark leafy greens and a variety of other colors.
  • Eat plenty of wholesome, natural fats like: butter, coconut oil, olive oil, walnut, flax, etc. Avoid hydrogenated fats and oils like Crisco, margarine, soybean oil and “salad” oil.
  • Be careful with fruit. Too much fruit can add excess sugar to your diet. Fruit is best digested if eaten alone, between meals. Choose lower sugar fruits like green apples, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Avoid starchy fruits like bananas, mangos, papaya. Avoid dried fruits.
  • Choose full fat dairy products and avoid dairy that has added sugars like flavored yogurts and ice cream.
  • Avoid simple carbohydrates (like white rice, white flour) and focus more on whole grains, legumes, beans and less starchy root vegetables and tubers (sweet potatoes, carrots, beets, etc).
  • Eat more garlic. Garlic has incredible anti-viral, antibiotic and anti-fungal properties.
  • Ditch processed table salt and switch to Himalayan salt or Celtic sea salt. These salts are unprocessed and contain all the trace minerals of the ocean. Minerals are necessary for a healthy immune system.

 

Other life style factors that support the immune system:

  • Get enough sleep. Quality sleep supports healing and repair. Sleep deprivation depletes the immune system and weakens the body.
  • Deal with stress. Chronic stress runs down the immune system and leaves the body susceptible to infections. Breathe deeply. Incorporate meditation and intentional relaxation into your day.
  • Frequent, moderate exercise benefits the immune system and is a great way to deal with stress and promote deeper sleep.
