Many people hate the change of seasons and we can understand why: we usually associate this time with the flu, or cough syrup. As soon as the thermostat drops or increases a few degrees, many people get sick. It is very important to strengthen your immune system before a change of seasons. Here are a few tips and tricks to prepare your immune system for this time of year so you can fully enjoy every season.
7. Lemon juice
Take on the change of seasons with lemon juice. The benefits of lemons are endless: citric acid, calcium, magnesium and vitamin C. These components help strengthen the body and fight infections. Before you eat anything, you should add lemon juice to a glass of lukewarm water every morning to help strengthen your immune system.
6. Hot milk with honey
If your throat hurts and you have a swollen ganglion, ease the pain mix in some honey in a glass of hot milk.
5. Essential oils
Having a good night’s sleep is essential for curing any change of season-related sickness. To ensure you get a good night’s sleep, add a few drops of lavender essential oil to your pillow. You will sleep like a baby!
Tea is extremely good for your health. Thyme, ginger, eucalyptus and lemon helps to unblock your sinuses which help to clear unwanted antiviral substances. Drink some 3-4 times a day.
It’s not always easy to motivate yourself to go out and workout when it’s cold or too hot outside but exercise helps strengthen your immune system. Be careful not to overdo it though.
2. Aerating your home
Once a day, try to aerate your house or your apartment for 10 to 20 minutes. You will eliminate all the bacteria and eliminate unwanted humidity.
1. Egg yolks
Do you have dry lips, knees, or elbows? Mix one egg yolk with one teaspoon coffee. Add one teaspoon olive oil, one tablespoon lanolin and the juice of half a lemon. Before going to bed, apply the mix to your dry skin.
