Nicci asks: What foods do you think help keep you from getting sick?


Thank you for the article. I haven't gotten a cold in the past few years since I have changed my diet and lifestyle. I used to get sick a couple of times a year and have allergies at the change of the season. I feel garlic, lemon, honey, ginger, and cayenne has help to boost my immune system. It doesn't hurt that I follow a plant-based lifestyle. I hadn't considered your points before, I am following those as well. I am double covered! Thanks again!

Lots of citrus fruit, garlic,omega 3 and fresh fruit and vegetables and PRAYER for health. Praying to the Living God is perhaps the most important because it is He who gives us the wisdom to acquire and maintain good health. Helen

You can also eat some Oranges or Citrus Fruits will keep you from getting sick too because of the Vitamin C that is in all of those types of fruit.

Simply eating the foods our bodies were designed to eat keeps us healthy and allows our immune system to focus on tasks other than saving us from the chemicals found in our non-food society. If it was made in nature, is most likely is ok. If it was made my man...not so much.

Thanks for a thought provoking post,

Since first being vegetarian and now vegan I have not got a cold or flu in many years. I lost more weight in transition from vegetarianism to veganism which taps into to the being lean comment above. Being fit also helps to keep you from getting sick - if you can't run walk. Reducing stress is another important one.

Drove up the coast of Maine this year and found wild rose hips as big as shooter marbles! Brought them home, chopped them a little in the food processor, boiled them 'til the water was a lovely amber, strained and added a dash of Hawaiian honey.........OMG!! Vitamin C galore!!
