Now that winter has hit and cold and flu season is upon us, one of the best things you can do for yourself and your loved ones is to get your immune system running optimally, and there are some simple ways to boost your immune system this winter.


When it comes to fighting off harmful infections like coronavirus, your immune system is the most effective weapon you have. Like a well-trained army, your immune system is designed to quickly spring into action at the "sound" of danger. 

Learning how to boost your immune system naturally can be a game-changer. When operating at its peak performance, your immune system can pinpoint and remove risks to wellness, recognise and imitate previous immune responses, and repair cellular and tissue damage. 

Your immune response is altered when you are under heavy stress or you are not recovering well with good sleep habits. A sedentary lifestyle can also lead to sluggish body systems, and the immune system is no exception. Other factors that can suppress the immune system include; the environment, toxins, stress, bad diet, age, and other diseases or infections. That’s why its’s important to give our immune system a boost to help build up your body’s defences.

Four simple ways to boost your immunity in the kitchen

  • Wash produce- by washing your veggies you reduce the pathogenic, chemical and bacterial load, as well as decrease your risk of viruses. 
  • Filter your water - viruses can't stand an alkaline environment. Drinking clean, pure, filtered water without the pesticides, metals, fertilisers, and chlorine, is great for an optimised immune system, and resistance to pathogens.
  • Intermittent fasting - calorie restriction is one of the best ways you can amp up your immunity - many studies have shown how this can improve the body’s ability to fight infection.
  • Meal preparation and planning - committing some time each week to write a meal plan, shop for fresh, organic food, and meal prep for the days you are going to be busy (make up lunch boxes, make batch dressings/sauces, etc), will go a long way towards helping you make healthier food choices. This will have a positive impact on the strength of your immune function.
