A balanced and regular healthy diet is one of the best defenses we have against viruses. What we eat today affects our mental, physical and spiritual state tomorrow. Everything that we put into our body today has the power to help regulate our immunity, which we all need most tomorrow. International Awarded Turkish Prime Chef shared a recipe that is prepared with simple ingredients and strengthens immunity.

Looking back in history, viruses have come in waves. And we’re in a wave right now. We, in order not to get into the wave or sink to the bottom, should do our best to increase our immunity.


In addition to cells belonging to the immune system, your intestine also welcomes other inhabitants of one world to another. These bacterial and yeast communities interact with your immune system, sending signals that ignite or soothe the body. These signals increase or minimize your risk of infection. Which one it will be depends on you.

One of the easiest ways to strengthen the intestine, restore it or support the immune system are vegetables that are natural probiotics. It is not found on grocery store shelves. It only heals when it comes out of your kitchen.

Here is a nice Turkish recipe that you can easily make at home to strengthen your microbiota with super probiotics…


  1. Rosemary
  2. Thyme
  3. Sage
  4. Lavender

These four plants are powerful antiviral. Since they are natural plants, they do not harm the internal ecosystem or the immune system in the intestine.


The lemon flavor of coriander, the sweet taste of cardamom and the earthy taste of cumin all capture a wonderful harmony. Let’s combine these 4 horsemen and 3K with a vegetable.


take aside the top leaf of 1 medium-sized Julienne chopped cabbage, then we will use the first one.

– 1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary (or 1/4 teaspoon dried)

– 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme (or 1/4 teaspoon dried)

– 1/2 teaspoon fresh sage (or 1/4 teaspoon dried)

– 1/2 teaspoon fresh lavender (or 1/4 teaspoon dried)

– 1 clove of garlic, crushed

– 2 tablespoons rock salt

– Too much water to pass over

– 1 teaspoon of kefir or yogurt juice or whey.



To begin with, thoroughly rub the cabbage with your hands with 2 tablespoons of rock salt, soften it. During the cook, it will start to release its juice. Keep it covered for at least 1 hour and you will see that it releases even more water. You can adjust the amount of whey, yogurt juice or kefir that you will add to it according to the the cabbage releases. Combine cabbage, herbs and garlic together and mix decently. Take the mixture in the required-sized glass jar and place it, pressing it tightly. Take it by pressing as much air as possible, leaving 2 fingers from above so that the vegetables expand. Place the separated cabbage leaves on top and close them by pressing again. The water should rise above the cabbage so that it does not come into contact with the air. You can also put a clean stone on it. Then put it in the closet away from daylight for 1 week.
