HOW TO KEEP DISEASES AWAY FROM YOURSELF?

In order not to get sick with diseases such as coronavirus, flu, colds, it is necessary to pay attention to the rules of healthy living and make more room for certain foods in nutrition. Turkey Medicals member and Internal Medicine Specialist Doctor gave 10 Tips that will strengthen our immunity.

.
1- HOMEMADE YOGURT FOR EVERY DAY

There are more than 100 trillion bacteria in our intestines. The more good bacteria there are, the stronger our immune system will be. The best way to increase the number of good bacteria in our intestines is to have more foods containing natural probiotics on the table. Here is the most practical probiotic food list: homemade pickles, turnip juice, yogurt, kefir, cheese.

.
2- DO NOT STRESS, TAKE PRECAUTIONS

Stress, malnutrition and constipation negatively affect the intestinal flora and cause the reproduction of bad bacteria, weakening our immune system. Instead of panic and stress about the coronavirus, take precautions. Wash your hands frequently, do not be in crowded environments, wear your mask and get vaccinated.

.
3- ONE KIWI PER DAY

When we say immunity, we all think of vitamin C. It is really important to eat a diet rich in vitamin C. Be sure to eat kiwi, citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables every day. Kiwi a day provides most of the vitamin C you need. If you can’t eat fresh fruit, consume dried fruit. Vitamin C taken from natural foods has a higher bioavailability than supplements. Be sure to consume purple-colored foods (such as purple cabbage and purple onions) for lunch and dinner.

.
4- EXIT TO THE OPEN AIR

Vitamin A and Vitamin D have a positive effect on immunity. October, it is necessary to sunbathe the arms and legs for half an hour every day between 11-15 o’clock for the synthesis of vitamin D, as well as to make room for carrots, spinach, black cabbage, eggs and fish varieties on the tables. Vitamin D should be above 50-60 units in the blood, and if it is below these levels, it should be supplemented externally.

.
5- LET YOUR IRON TANK BE FULL

Iron deficiency leads to a weakening of the immune system. It is very common, especially in women aged 14-45 years and in children of growth-decency age. When the body’s iron stores decrease, not enough blood can go to the cells. Cell oxygenation is decreasing. In this case, the risk of contracting epidemic diseases is increasing. For this reason, red meat, eggs, liver, legumes and molasses, which are foods rich in iron, should be included in the diet.

.
6- ADD OAT BRAN TO YOUR SOUP

Many scientific studies have shown that oat bran containing beta-glucan strengthens the immune system. You will find that 2-3 tablespoons of oat bran per day, which you will add to your soups or yogurt, is useful both for bowel work and for feeling more full and strengthening the immune system. In meantime, prepare soups with bone broth from different vegetables. Be sure to sprinkle it with ginger, hot pepper.

.
7- MAKE ROOM FOR FISH AND PURSLANE ON YOUR TABLE

Foods such as fish, walnuts, purslane, which are foods high in omega-3, have many benefits such as increasing cell blood supply, preventing vascular calcification. It creates a protective shield.

.
8- REMOVE WASTE BY DRINKING WATER

For a good circulation, accompanied by a good discharge and a good metabolism, make it a habit to drink 10 glasses of water a day, without saying summer-winter. Especially in winter, as the feeling of thirst decreases, the daily water consumption becomes insufficient. In this case, waste materials cannot be removed from the body at the required speed, the appropriate ground for the accumulation of toxins is formed. This whole process increases the risk of developing diseases.

.
9- MOVE

The most important immune system protector is movement. As in the proverb, the more you move, the greater the good you do to your body. By increasing blood circulation and metabolic rate, you strengthen your immune system. Be sure to take 10 thousand steps every day. Do it outdoors in daylight, not in gyms.

.
10- LET YOUR BEDROOM BE LIKE A CAVE

Sleep is very important for restoring the body. In order for your immune system to be strong, sleep in a dark, quiet and not too hot room such as a cave. Do not charge your Turkish mobile phone in your bedroom, do not have electronic appliances such as a TV, iPad. If you do not want your sleep to be divided by going to the toilet, restrict drinking water after 20.00 in the evening. Intensify water consumption during the day.
