The First Step to Boost Immunity
When it comes to boosting our immunity, first start with three basic actions we all need to take:
- Eat a traditional nutrient-dense foods diet
- Get some fresh air, sunshine, and moderate exercise
- Get plenty of deep, restful, and restorative sleep
These steps sound simple, but in our fast-paced world, these basic steps to boost immunity can sometimes seem almost impossible to attain. But don’t worry!
In today’s member video, I share simple steps for how you can start incorporating these habits into your daily life, little by little.
A Word of Caution about Home Remedies
Approach all home remedies with knowledge and caution. Many home remedies include herbs, and many herbs have potent medicinal properties and have been used as medicine for centuries.
If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication (over the counter or prescription), having allergies, or thinking of using medicinal herbs or home remedies with children, make sure you first talk to your doctor, pediatrician, or other health care professional. You want to ensure that the home remedies you plan to use will not adversely affect you or your children. I can’t stress this enough! Herbs are medicine. Never be casual or negligent in their use.
Ok, let’s start talking about using home remedies to boost immunity.
