Food & Sleep for the Immune System

DIET 

Diet is also important for rapid recovery. Proper diet can accelerate your body's immune response, and provide you the necessary nutrients and energy to fight off invading pathogens.

 

 

 

FOODS TO ADD

Warm clear broth soups, vegetables and lots of water. It may sound simple but that beloved recipe for chicken soup passed down through generations is a good soothing food to eat when recovering from cold/flu symptoms. You can include a nice bone broth, ginger, garlic and onion scallions for a nutrient dense, immune boosting recipe that will help induce sweating and expel pathogens.

Brown rice and millet porridge/congee. This is rice cooked until it’s soft like oatmeal. I like to use my Instapot to cook the rice as normal then add extra water and set the Instapot to the warming setting let rice further soak until water is absorbed and rice is soft and sticky. Alternatively, you can soak brown rice in water for 12 hours, blend it in a blender and then cook it, stirring often, until it forms a soft sticky paste. The finished product will look like glue. This recipe will help tonify the Spleen and digestive tract and give your body a boost of energy to fight off a cold or flu virus. By adding some honey, cinnamon, cloves, ginger it can also be very effective at warming the body and creating sweat to expel pathogens. 

 

 

FOODS TO AVOID 

If you are experiencing excessive fever-heat symptoms: Spicy food, fried food, alcohol, meat (particularly lamb), junk food or chips, crackers 

If you are experiencing cold/chills symptoms: Icy/cold drinks, raw vegetables, seafood

If you are experiencing phlegm and nasal discharge: Dairy, sugar 

 

 

 

 

SLEEP

Good quality sleep. Sleep is essential to recovery. Just like cell phones need to be recharged, so does your body. People often say work hard, play hard, but never rest hard. Resting is so important to regain balance in life.
