12 ways to boost immunity


Now is the time to boost your immune system, before the cold weather really hits.  There are plenty of respiratory infections in circulation and your best defence is a robust immune system.

Here are 12 simple things you can do to boost your immunity:

  • Get sufficient exercise; which is minimum 150 minutes weekly for most adults.
  • Reduce your stress levels; even taking 5 minutes each day to do something that relaxes you will help.  Attending a meditation class will help even more.
  • Do breathing exercises; simple breathing awareness for 5 minutes daily will do. Qi Gong or Yoga exercises are even better.
  • Avoid eating refined sugar; use natural sweeteners like stevia if it helps.
  • Don’t smoke.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables.
  • Have an acupuncture or cupping session. Yes either can boost your immune response or help you recover.¹
  • Take liquid Panax Ginseng
  • Take a high potency Vitamin C supplement
  • Take our Defence Plus or Resistance Formula
