Tips To Help Build Up Your Immune System

With our upcoming trip to Mexico, many people have asked me if I’m nervous about traveling in light of the coronavirus. Honestly I’m not. I feel like I’m pretty healthy overall, I have always been someone who is a germaphobe so keeping my environment in which I live and work sanitized/disinfected, is something I have already been doing.

Something I HAVE  been doing is working at building up my immune system. I just want to be as safe as I can, and do what I can to help me be my healthier version.

Below you will find the recipe for immune building golden milk. Did you know turmeric (the key ingredient to why the milk is golden) is anti-inflammatory, boosts the immune system and helps lower your risk of heart disease. Amazing right! Also other ways to help build your immune system is taking in more Vitamin C (not just in oranges but in Kale, bell peppers, kiwi fruit, guava and broccoli).

Taking elderberry syrup or drinking elderberry tea are ways you can also help to build your immune system. Lastly these are things you should be doing everyday anyways to feel your best. Drink lots of water, reduce your stress and get lots of sleep.

Just as an extra step, I’ve been taking Airborne or Emergen C (what’s it hurt right). If I’m hoping on a plane and traveling, I better do what I can to be as healthy as can be during the trip.

    Such a great idea to boost the immune system and it also sounds delicious ?
    I think it’s a good idea to give our immune system some support always but especially at the moment with this wretched Coronavirus lurking everywhere.
    Stay well and enjoy Mexico ??
