3 Ways to Fight Infections (Naturally!)

Thank goodness for antibiotics.

They’ve saved countless lives over the years.

But while antibiotics are effective against bacterial infections, they can’t do anything for viral infections (like the cold and flu).

Not to mention, antibiotic resistance is on the rise.

That’s why it’s more important than ever to boost your body’s own antibiotics so that you’re prepared to fight off any kind of infection (no antibiotics necessary).

Your body makes compounds that fight off pathogens every single day.

We don’t always think of them as our own antibiotics, but that’s exactly what they are. Whether it’s boosting anti-bacterial or anti-viral activities, there are steps you can take to make sure you have plenty disease-fighters to go around.

Here are the three best.

The first is sunlight.

When your skin and eyes are exposed to the sun, vitamin D is produced in your body. Vitamin D is necessary for strong immune function.

Three different research groups have found that vitamin D can deactivate the flu virus in humans.

Sunlight has also been shown to disinfect surfaces, proving that its benefits extend beyond its vitamin-D producing effects.

The second is sleep.

When you don’t get enough sleep, changes occur in your immune cells that reduce your ability to fight infections.

That’s why people who get less than seven hours of sleep per night are over three times more likely to get a cold (compared to those who get eight hours or more).

Sleep quality is even more important that quantity. This same study found that people who tossed and turned at night were over five times more likely to catch a cold.

That’s because your sleep rhythms impact your body’s ability to identify bacteria and viruses.

Third is exercise.

Exercise boosts your body’s ability to naturally fight off infections.

One study found that doing 2.5 hours of exercise per week reduced the risk of catching the flu.

Another found that exercising cut the risk of flu IN HALF, compared to non-exercisers. The longer someone maintained an exercise program, the greater the immune benefits.

That’s because exercise has even been shown to supercharge your immune cells, making them better at doing their job.

These solutions are about as simple as it gets.

Nature’s best medicine usually is.
