Increasing Immunity against Allergies
Healthy diet, adequate sleep and meditation are believed to be important pillars of health, when allergies attack our immune system, these three areas require special attention. Rest boosts a depressed immune system. During a bout of allergy, our immunity is weakened. Hence it is important to get a good night’s sleep.
During allergen attack our immunity is under attack, so to speak. So getting enough sleep during the night becomes imperative.
There are various aspects which cause allergies, genetic factors, seasons, certain foods and even stress and poor mental health, negative emotions (guilt, anger, envy, and jealousy) etc. Thus boosting immunity and adopting healthy lifestyle is extremely vital.
Some tips can be easily incorporated in our daily routine to improve immunity against allergies-
- Organically grown foods are chemical free and best because they are said to contain more minerals. Vegetarian proteins such as paneer (homemade cheese), milk, and pulses (split-mung dhal, lentils and other small, split beans) enhance immunity. Meat is not a recommended protein as it is difficult to digest.
Immunity can also be improved by consuming natural immunity boosting foods regularly. Visit our immunity blog to learn how to increase immunity and the top home remedies to improve immunity power.
