Why eat Roasted Garlic??… Let me tell you why I smell so pretty 🙂
With the holidays over, we may find ourselves in need of a little TLC. I know I may have rubbed shoulders with a few people fighting a cold…. and being the holidays… extra stress, late nights and indulging a little more than usual (yes I ate truffles), my immune system was compromised and welcomed on some uninvited guests.
At the first sign of a cold, I infuse my body with liquids, preferably warm nourishing teas and bone broths and eat a lot of roasted and raw garlic (sorry if I smell extra nice).
Fresh, raw garlic has proven itself as an effective killer of bacteria and viruses and prevent infection inside or outside the body. Raw garlic has antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Supplementation is important, including probiotics & Vit C and essential oils like oregano and clove. Most importantly rest, early bedtime and reduced sugar and low-carb diet (sugar will suppress your immune system) are key.
I’m my best testimony… I am kicking this cold to the curb before it even had a chance to start. I’m about at 95% right now less than hours.
My Immunity Meal Plan has a lot of nourishing foods to support your immune system when you are under the weather. I include my top beat-the-cold techniques to lessen the severity and duration of a cold.
And what about illnesses that are more severe than the common cold? Same rules apply, naturally support the immune system and let your body fight the invaders.
Be well and stay healthy!
