Effective health prevention is critical and especially during the cooler months. As the northern hemisphere embraces Autumn, so must its inhabitants take extra measures to better safeguard themselves against disease. Nutritionally, beefing up one's antioxidant intake is a wonderful way to build immunity. When one's meal is loaded with color, antioxidant intake is indeed sufficient. A varied use of herbs also provides the body an excellent means by which to restore itself from any processed foods that have hidden themselves. Rosemary, in fact, enhances cognition and has shown itself the ability to disengage cancer compounding activity in breast cancer sufferers. Antioxidants help with the dissemination of free radicals, which are toxins that build up within all of us over time. Without getting rid of this gaseous and other clutter, we make ourselves prime ground for disease to infest itself. Omega3 fatty acids in foods such as salmon, tuna, walnuts and almonds are excellent methods by which to strengthen the heart and one's nervous system. These indirectly assist immunity by making the our other parts stronger and more resilient. For those who preference eating meat, try eating leaner cuts. Focus on those fatty acids that are good for you, like Omega3's, and stray from those animal fats which aren't recommended.
But supplementation is always important, even with a properly channeled nutritious diet. Elderberry is excellent for providing antioxidant potential and a must-have for the cooler months to circumvent the onslaught of the typical flus that run rampant. Dandelion Root is yet another supplement which provides a stalwart against disease and which has untold, numerous benefits among all of its parts. Colostrum is yet another optimum choice which, by virtue of strengthening immunity, facilitates disease to be eliminated from the body. Chlorella is a blue-green algae and a mainstay that proves beneficial to everyone, given its lovely supply of trace minerals, which aid in maintaining equilibrium for the nervous system. Other forms of seaweed are easily available for those who prefer other varieties. (Do remember, for those suffering from mood disorders due to the sudden absence of the sun, this stabilizing force proves a tremendous, needed boost enabling one to properly function. Vitamin D3 is another option for those experiencing these symptoms during less sunnier months.) All of these are easily found at one's local health food store, or online at www.vitacost.com.
Seasons do affect internal change and we are wise to navigate these with dietary and supplementary alterations. Modest effort makes for less suffering and opportunity for disease to present itself. We're worth the extra effort, and nature has all of the answers for us.
