It seems like every day we hear in the news people are getting more sick. Unfortunately, if the immune system is weak your odds for catching the cold or flu increases.
In order to have a healthy immune system in place, we must consume the right foods and nutritional needs must be maintained at all times. When you have a healthy and strong immune system, viruses and bacteria cannot easily attack you. Be sure you're not inviting the enemy into your body by living an unhealthy lifestyle. Remember, they want to take over the host and tear their immune system down. They're the bad guys!
If you have diabetes, it is even more vital to maintain a healthy immune system. When you keep your blood sugars in control, eat the right foods, maintain proper nutrients, drink plenty of alkaline water, detox, exercise, get adequate sleep, reduce stress, and keep a positive attitude your immune system will be equipped to handle the viruses and bacteria. In addition, you can add supplements when your immune system needs additional support.
