Home Remedies for Keeping Your Immune System Strong

by Cascade Ice on December 4, 2020


It’s the season of colds, flus and sniffles, and more and more people are looking for ways to naturally boost their immune systems to protect them during the Fall and Winter months. Believe it or not, most of the things that can make a big difference in helping your immune system stay strong are already in your home or require you to make small changes to your routine. Read on for more tips on how to give your body a healthy boost.

Remember your A B C D and E’s!

Are you taking a daily multivitamin? Lack of the right levels of vitamins in your body have been shown to put you at risk for illness. Taking a multivitamin daily, along with practicing a healthy diet with fruits and vegetables can play a key role in your immune response during cold and flu season. So, order some vitamins online or purchase at your local pharmacy!

Drink More Water Than You Think

Most people assume they are getting the right amount of hydration each day, but they are not. We live in a busy world, and we often mistake dehydration as hunger. Carry a reusable water bottle around with you all day and aim to consume an ounce of water for each pound you weigh – more if you exercise. Regular water gets boring? Try Cascade Ice Water for something different and fun!

Soak up the Sun

Spending at least an hour of your day getting sunshine is crucial to your body manufacturing enough Vitamin D to ward off sickness. If you’re stuck inside or work from home, try stepping out for a neighborhood walk, or taking your laptop by the window to absorb some sun. Some studies have even shown it can have a positive effect on your mood!

Rest and Repeat

Chronic fatigue and stress can wreak havoc on our immune system response. So, when germs come knocking, our body is literally defenseless when our it is already under attack from stress and fatigue. Try a daily guided meditation (there are millions to choose from on apps and the Internet for free), focus on your breathing, and make sure to get about 8 hours of sleep each night. Even more important, try to stick to your sleep routine so that your body falls into a natural rhythm each day.
