Vitamins and minerals play a major role in our health and immunity. Vitamin D, Vitamin C and zinc are very important in building up the immune system. Keeping the body alkaline also means good health. As soon as acid levels rise so does infection.
Some people take pine needle tea ( Pinus Strobus or Pinus Sylvestris ) to help with their immune support. But you need the proper tea from a health food shop, and not just picking the leaves from some random tree. Some pine trees are toxic, so talk to the people in the know before you buy anything, and also do you homework on line by reading about pine needle tea. It has several uses; including helping lower blood pressure. Follow the recommended dosage too, some herbal teas can have a toxic effect if over used. Some can cause a miscarriage too, so don’t just take anything without medical approval.
Please talk to your doctor about taking any alternative medications first, because they may not go well with medication that you may be taking.
Always remember you hygiene too; to stop bacteria spreading, wash your hands with soap and water especially if you have been at the shops or returning home from anywhere. This cuts down the spread of bugs and viruses. Good old fashioned hygiene, works well. It is amazing how people become so lazy about something as important as hygiene. After the past year and a bit, how many people have actually learned to be more mindful of staying free of bugs and viruses?
