Did you know that our immune health starts in our gut? I makes sense, if you think about it, since the gut is where everything we eat gets absorbed. So if we have an unhealthy gut, we may also have a weak immune system.
With this in mind, I wanted to provide some tips to help you IMPROVE YOUR IMMUNE HEALTH BY HEALING YOUR GUT, that you can start doing today to reduce and reverse illness.
1. Take a Probiotic
Probiotics can assist in rebalancing your microbiome.
I have finally found one that I love and I can actually feel the difference since I started taking it. It comes in a powder pixie stick form. Just open it, pour it into your mouth and it melts away. It’s a yummy sweet cucumber flavor. Click HERE for more info.
2. Eat Fermented and Cultured Foods.
Foods such as kimchi, sauerkraut, and fresh pickles. Not only do these foods contain probiotics, but they are also full of digestive enzymes, which can compensate for your stomach, liver, or gallbladder.
3. Eat Sprouted Vegetables.
Sprouted veggies contain dramatically increased amounts of enzymes compared to their unsprouted counterparts.
4. Eat radishes, artichokes, dandelion, and chicory.
These foods and other bitter greens stimulate the liver to create bile.
5. Try a Demulcent.
Demulcents soothe irritated or inflamed tissues and include foods like almonds, barley, coconut oil, figs, parsley, prunes, and sage.
6. Avoid Alcohol and Coffee.
These substances can adversely affect your microbiome — the balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut.
7. Try Ghee.
Ghee (clarified butter) has been used in India for thousands of years to treat digestive problems. It can reduce inflammation and is high in gut-healing butyrate.
8. Eat More Fiber.
Fiber helps regulate your digestive tract and also acts as food for your good bacteria.
I hope these immune health tips are helpful for you. Personally my best and favorite tip is to add a probiotic to your daily supplement routine.
Stay safe out there, friends – Keep that gut and immune system in good health!
