Fall is nearly upon us, and in case you’re wondering, there are many ways to supercharge your immunity and fight off viruses! We can dodge infections by eating cheese. A 1-oz serving of gouda, edam, Roquefort, blue cheese or 1/2 cup cottage cheese daily can reduce your risk of some infections by 60% according to a Finnish study. These cheeses contain probiotic bacteria to produce more white blood cells. If you are sniffling, don’t take aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen or similar meds. University of Maryland researchers say that painkillers shut down fever, but fever destroys heat-sensitive viruses! And– Granny was right: wear slippers and keep your feet warm. A new British study shows that when feet get chill, it actually tightens up the blood vessels in the sinuses. This makes it hard for white blood cells to get to mucus membranes in sinuses where viruses reside. Serve one of these nutritious treats daily: frozen peaches (which are frozen at their peak of ripeness and contain double the amount of Vitamin C than oranges) or 1/2 cup pineapple, 1/2 cup orange vegetables such as sweet potato, butternut squash and pumpkin.
