    CHAPTER 10: Super Immunity
    [​IMG]
    No More Sick Days!
    Let’s talk about immunity. What is it and why does it matter, anyway? Your immune system is that helpful bodily resource that resists infections and toxins and fights off illness. Do you remember as a kid when the winter flu was circling around school? Some kids never seemed to catch it, while others would be out for a week or two, unable to get out of bed. It happens to adults too! Every year a nasty cold seems to get passed around the office. So how do you avoid the plague? The key to fighting off or resisting these illnesses is to build up your immune system. It’s your ultimate health booster. In this chapter, we’ve compiled some delicious recipes to keep you healthy all year round. You can say goodbye to pesky runny noses, painful body aches, chills, fevers, and all the other cold and flu symptoms.

    EAT YOUR IMMUNITY
    Our body is capable of fighting off invaders like pathogenic bacteria and viruses, and also of destroying cells when they become cancerous. This is all done through our powerful immune system. The main components of your immune system are the immune cells, the structural barriers in your body in which the majority of these cells are localized, and the specific messenger molecules that call the cells to action or tell them to stop. These immune system cells circulate in your bloodstream and in the lymph nodes.

    But there are things that can weaken the system, especially poor nutrition. Poor nutrition leads to increased infections, slow healing, and increased susceptibility to illness complications. That means that what we put into our bodies is so incredibly important. It can make or break our ability to fight off nasty infections and illnesses.

    It’s probably no surprise that vitamin C is a germ-fighting rock star. It decreases the duration and severity of symptoms associated with upper respiratory infections and contributes to healthy T cell function. But don’t ignore these other immunity-boosting foods:

    GARLICcontains allicin, a natural chemical that fights bacteria and viruses.

    CITRUS FRUITSare a great, tangy way to get vitamin C. It’s a crucial antioxidant that supports your immune system. In addition to oranges, grapefruits, and other citrus fruits, you can get vitamin C from kiwifruit and strawberries.

    HERBS AND SPICEShave been shown to kill germs. Try curry, a mix of spices like chile peppers, turmeric, garlic, and ginger that curbs inflammation. Rosemary, oregano, and thyme are other herbs that provide antioxidants.

    PROBIOTICSare the good bacteria that keep your gut healthy, which is great for your immunity. Choose kefir and yogurt. Look for “live cultures” on the label.

    CAULIFLOWER, BROCCOLI, AND BRUSSELS SPROUTSare all cruciferous vegetables. In addition to antioxidant vitamins, they also contain choline. Choline keeps your cells functioning properly and also helps keep bacteria in the gut. Cauliflower contains glutathione, an antioxidant that fights off infection.

    GREENSsuch as kale, spinach, andSwiss chard are immune-boosting foods that contain high levels of vitamin C and help fight infection. They also contain folate, another immune booster.

    MUSHROOMSare an excellent source of the immune-boosting mineral, zinc. Those who don’t have enough zinc in their diet have fewer white blood cells to fight off disease, leading to a weakened immune response.

    CINNAMONis antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial. It fights the pathogens that cause illness.

    CARROTSare an excellent source of beta-carotene, which supports the body’s mucous membrane. This lines the respiratory and intestinal tracts, making it harder for bacteria to enter the bloodstream.

    GINGERhas chemicals called sesquiterpenes that target rhinoviruses, the most common category of cold viruses, as well as substances that help suppress coughing. Ginger is also a natural pain and fever reducer and a mild sedative.

    ONION AND GARLIC,when combined, contain numerous antiseptic and immunity-boosting compounds, plus garlic helps to open clogged sinuses.

    BLACK PEPPER,made from black peppercorns, is high in piperine, a compound known for its fever-fighting and pain-relieving qualities.

    THE FLU VS. A COLD
    It’s sometimes hard to tell, but there’s a difference between the flu and an ordinary cold. Both are respiratory infections caused by viruses, and their symptoms are often similar. So how can you determine what you have? Flu symptoms are typically more severe than cold symptoms and come on more quickly. A cold usually involves a combination of sneezing, coughing, and headache. If you are experiencing more than a couple of symptoms, it’s more likely that you have the flu. Those suffering from a common cold are less likely to have a fever, and symptoms such as a runny nose or sore throat often improve within a few days.

    Taking your temperature is the first step in determining if your illness is a cold or flu.
