1 Avoid sugar

water on the rocksSugar decreases the function of your immune system almost immediately. A strong immune system is key to fighting off viruses and other illness. It is especially crucial to avoid sugar if you feel you are coming down with something, but keeping sugar out of your diet long-term will protect your health and make your body stronger, making it harder for bugs to get you. Sugar provides you with no nutrients and your body uses up precious minerals to metabolise it.

2 Vitamins

Vitamins A, C and D are useful vitamins to supplement in the winter (and zinc too) as the immune system uses all these nutrients in its fight against invaders.

3 Eat garlic regularly

Garlic is a three-pronged attack: it's antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal. Garlic is one food that you would benefit by eating daily. Eat it as fresh as you can for best results, or if you take supplements choose a freeze-dried variety.

4 Don't let stress become overwhelming

We all face some stress everyday, but if stress becomes overwhelming your body will be less able to fight off flu and other illness. It is estimated that up to 90% of illness is stress-related.

5 Emotions

Research at the HeartMath Institute in Boulder, California has shown that angry feelings suppress the immune system for a few hours, whereas positive emotions, like gratitude, actually boost the immune system for even longer. Being angry leaves you more susceptible to illness, loving feelings protect you.

6 Exercise

Exercising helps your immune system to be more efficient. When you exercise you increase your circulation and blood flow throughout your body. The components of your immune system are also better circulated, which means your immune system has a better chance of finding an illness before it has a chance to take hold.

7 Get enough rest

Just like it becomes harder for you do your daily tasks if you're tired, it will be harder for it to fight off viruses if your body is overly fatigued. Regular rest will keep you strong and ensure that your body has the strength to fight off any potential invaders.

8 Drink plenty of fluids

Drink water or herb teas to keep your body (right down to the cellular level) well hydrated.

9 Wash your hands

Washing your hands regularly provides extra protection as it decreases the likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people.
