Slowly but surely, our communities are inching toward re-opening after weeks of Coronavirus safety measures. As we begin to consider a return to “normal” life, strengthening your immune system is essential to feeling confident and prepared.
Start right now with these five key steps to naturally boost immunity recommended by the nurse behind Nupeutics Health, Bernadette Judge (Nurse B).
Practice proper hygiene by washing hands frequently, especially after using the restroom or touching commonly used items such as shopping carts or door handles
Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and enjoying alcohol, soda, and other sugary beverages in moderation
Make rest a priority by ensuring that you get enough sleep (around 8 hours) each night
Reduce mental and emotional stress by getting active, clearly communicating your needs, and talking through challenges with those you trust
Limit nutritional and environmental stressors by eating a well-balanced diet and avoiding too many processed foods
Supplement your diet with natural herbs, minerals, and vitamins that support good health, such as Zinc, Vitamin C, and Echinacea
