10 Ways To Boost Your Immune System

This is a well covered topic, but it's useful enough to bear repeating. Here are some ways to boost your immune system:

1) Proper nutrition: eat at least some raw fruits and vegetables daily

2) Fresh garlic, echinacea, vitamin C, zinc, and probiotics can all help

3) Cut back on refined sugar

4) Reduce consumption of alcohol

5) Get adequate sleep

6) Maintain a healthy weight

7) Hot foods such as chili peppers, onions, radishes can help as well (they contain mucolytics, which helps to liquefy mucus, easing cold symptoms and speeding recovery)

8) Exercise (this has many benefits, including stimulating the circulation of lymph fluid)

9) Drink enough water

10) Reduce caffeine intake

There's a lot of info on this topic, so here's a few more:

11) Add fresh lemon to your diet (it restores acid-alkali balance)

12) Don't over-clean your environment (exposure to mild germs keeps your immune system fit)

13) Don't smoke

14) Avoid antibiotics whenever possible
