7 Holiday Tips for Boosting Your Immunity

Updated: Dec 28, 2023

The holiday season is a time to get together with friends and family and participate in fun activities. However, such gatherings often leave you at risk of catching an illness, especially the flu this time of year.

You don’t want your holiday activities to halt while you’re busy having fun, so it’s wise to take precautions. Boosting your immune system fortifies your body against the illness-causing viruses peculiar to the season. Here are some tips to help you achieve this:

1 - Carry out immune-boosting therapies

Several treatments can help maintain and build up your natural resistance to illness, including skinny drip, cryotherapy, IV therapy and limitless IV. Optimize your physical performance and neurological functions. Limitless IV therapy will expand your immune support, facilitate detoxification and keep you energized and refreshed. The right wellness therapy can target recovery and stimulation of your natural defense system.

2 - Eat more nuts and seeds

Nuts like almonds, walnuts, pistachios, or pecans contain vitamin D and can easily be added to other vegetable dishes, such as green beans or broccoli, to help boost your immunity. 

Also, take advantage of zinc-rich animal foods such as beef, fish, oysters, tofu, and pumpkin seeds for their immune-boosting properties. 

3 - Wash your hands regularly

The quickest way for illness-causing germs to spread is through touch. With friends and family visiting and plenty of comings and goings, there’s sure to be plenty of unavoidable physical contact.

Ensure that you wash your hands regularly with soap and warm water, taking care to scrub your fingers and underneath your nails for at least 20 seconds before rinsing off the lather.

4 - Exercise regularly

The many fun activities you have lined up for the holidays should be no reason not to do some exercises. Regular exercise is one of the most effective ways to ward off sickness and boost your immune system and biological resilience against the flu.

So, don’t forget to make time to exercise daily. About 30 minutes of daily workouts will do wonders for your immune system.

5 - Get enough sleep

Overexerting yourself during the holidays and not getting enough sleep not only leaves you perpetually tired but also makes you more susceptible to illness as your body produces fewer proteins to target infection and inflammation

To combat this, ensure that you get enough sleep every day. About seven to eight hours of sleep at night is recommended.

6 - Drink immune-boosting drinks

You should add vitamin C to your daily diet to boost immunity. Lemon is high in vitamin C, and as an antioxidant, it helps your body prevent disease and reduce inflammation. Adding some lemon juice to your water and even fresh grated ginger or ginger paste and raw honey can do wonders for your immunity. 

You can also drink more teas that contain phytochemicals, such as green, black, white, oolong tea, and herbal infusion teas like turmeric and peppermint.

7 - Eat more red and purple foods

Dark red and purple fruits and vegetables such as blueberries, eggplant, raspberries, strawberries, and cranberries contain phytochemicals that boost the immune system. 

Ensure you eat more of these foods, including fruit salads with dark-colored berries, to boost your immune system during the holidays.
