Keeping your Immune System Healthy this Winter

Firstly let’s understand what the Immune System is all about. It’s all the things that our bodies use to fight off infection like antibodies, cells and so many other things that keep us healthy. In general, it does an amazing job of putting up with the harmless germs that line in us while identifying and expelling those harmful species that can cause illness and disease. In addition to that very well put together introduction, I wanted to cover how we can keep our immune systems healthy. These are all the things I’ve been trying to do and keep to a discipline and just how you can avoid getting colds especially since where I’m from, it’s the cold season. The coronavirus doesn’t make things any easier and it’s important to make sure that you trying your best in maintaining your personal health.

For me, I automatically think about the obvious, sensible steps to decrease the risk of transmission such as washing my hands and not sneezing or coughing over people. Living a healthy, balanced lifestyle is the best thing you can do to make sure your Immune System can function optimally. A way I naturally boost mine is taking supplements (especially vitamin c) and this effective honey, lemon and ginger tea. Below is steps on making this tea which is very easy and well-known. It’s great for boosting your Immune System naturally. I like that you can have it all year round. If you’ve heard about it and never tried it, I highly recommend you do so.

Boil sliced lemon and freshly grated ginger (no need to peel) in a tea pot/medium bowl. Pour in your favourite mug, put 1 tablespoon of honey and stir to dissolve.
