What You Must Include in your Everyday Diet to Improve Immunity

Sep 10, 2021, 2:30 pm - 3:32 pm

The immune system is the body's defense against infections. Immunity refers to the body's ability to prevent the invasion of pathogens. It is therefore important to improve your natural immunity. Weak immunity can make your child fall sick. This worsens when the season changes.

Good natural immunity strengthens the body's ability to fight infections and diseases, and protects from seasonal illnesses. How does one increase natural immunity?

Food and nutrition, sleep, play and healthy habits improve your immunity.

What you eat defines your overall health, immunity & growth. Eat a well-balanced, healthy and nutritious diet. Also include herbs and spices like ginger, garlic, honey, clove and cinnamon too in your diet. Food has a significant role to play in improving your immunity.

Physical exercise also plays an important role in boosting your immunity by improving the infection fighting ability and hence keeps you safe and protected.

Activities like Yoga, Jogging etc improves circulation and helps keep you healthy and strong.

Sleep is also important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Lack of sleep can make you more prone to illness as that can lower immunity.

Inculcating healthy habits right from the start can go a long way in improving your natural immunity. These include regularly washing your hands, washing fruits and vegetables thoroughly, maintaining a proper hygiene routine.

My child doesn't like the taste of ginger and garlic . Even if I add after grating or finely chopping, she would not eat daals or vegetables because of that. I believe these are good to fight off infections and should be added to all dishes. Kindly suggest an alternative for ginger and garlic or some other method by which these can be added to dishes without her being able to taste it.

Hello Expert ! My question to you is, why would a 5 year old child pass stools 3-4 times a day? Is it normal? Is it because of his diet? What changes can I bring about in his diet pattern so that he poops just once in a day like other children of his age?

My daughter gets tired after playing for half an hour. She doens't jump like other kids and is not at all active. She is weak in studies as well and takes longer time to understand instructions. I am trying to serve her everything that I cook at home but she tastes a spoon or two and says I am full. Is there a way to make her finish her plate so that she becomes active and doens't get tired easily.
