Here Are 4 Home Remedies To Boost Your Immune System:
Astragalus has anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant properties. It should not be consumed when already in fever as it may increase the fever. Often cancerous patients’ are given this herb to strengthen their immunity. Boil about 7 slices of Astragalus and freshly peeled garlic in water and then simmer for few hours to soften the garlic. Sieve and add salt to taste. Other variations may include adding noodles and pepper powder or having it along with garlic.
Garlic has strong anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. Try this recipe for immunity. Take 2 cloves of garlic, 1 lemon, a table spoon of honey, and just a pinch of cayenne pepper. Extract all the juice from the lemon but keep one half portion of lemon (one without juice), add finely chopped garlic, and leave it for about 10 minutes. Now add honey and cayenne pepper to the mixture, and mix well. Transfer the whole mixture into the other half part of the lemon (from which the juice had been extracted initially). Consume complete mixture along with the lemon mash and this whole thing can be had 3-7 times a day.
Root Vegetable Juice
Here’s a simple recipe that includes 3 vegetables that are all root based. Take 4 medium sized carrots, about 5 celery ribs along with leaves, and ½ beet along with leaves. Wash and prepare juice by taking all the above ingredients. Add black pepper if you like it. Beta carotene, folate and magnesium present in these are good source of immunity. This much amount of juice contains 5.3 grams of fiber and 2.3 grams of protein.
Chicken consists of cysteine (amino acid) that helps to melt all the mucus present in our nose and lungs. Here’s a simple DIY chicken soup recipe. Take 1 entire chicken, an onion, 3 carrots, few celery stalks, water, some ginger and garlic, and some pepper. Fine chop all the vegetables and boil them along with chicken. Now simmer them all for some time unless the flesh doesn’t starts separating from the bones. When done, you start feeling the aroma. Separate the chicken and the bones, chicken can be had later with the main course. Drink this hot and freshly prepared chicken soup for instant relief. Chicken bones are very important because vitamin B, zinc and calcium present help to strengthen immunity.
