Building immunity for fall will help keep families safe and guarded.
Keeping family and loved ones safe during these perilous times is paramount. There are ways to help prevent the spread of COVID, and ways to build immunity holistically to keep family gatherings safe as possible.

To help prevent the spread of Covid, The CDC recommends getting the vaccine as it’s proven to be effective. Wearing masks indoors and faithfully washing hands shows to be highly effective as well. Those who are fully vaccinated are still encouraged to wear a mask in public areas where cases are high in number.
A Holistic Approach
More and more people are turning to holistic ways of building immunity for the changing of the seasons.
The number one rule to any prevention of illness is water.
According to Culligan Water, dehydration makes to body more susceptible to germs.
“Water carries important components of the immune system, including nutrients, to where they need to go and carries away waste from organs that are the byproducts of our everyday metabolism as we consume food and turn it into energy”, a Culligan physician states.
Pumpkins are the highlight of the fall season. Not only are they fun to carve, they provide vitamins A, C and E as well as potassium and fiber.
Exercise, whether in a gym or outside on the pavement, helps burn calories and fight off illness.
Healthy food options encourage immense immunity. Consuming foods like fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, veggies and hummus all contribute to staying healthy.
According to U.S News, there are a plethora of fall foods that contribute to wellness and immunity. Beets, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, eggplant, squash, etc., are superfoods that provide rich nutrients our bodies need for sufficient immunity.
Happy Early Holidays!
