Eating fresh, healthy food is a great way to boost your immune system.  Foods high in antioxidants will also bolster immune function.  Garlic will help boost your body's natural immune function.  What else is recommended and/or discouraged?

Recommended:

 

Eat more raw foods.

 

Eat foods high in antioxidants such as garlic, onions, sweet potatoes, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, mushrooms, ginger.

 

Going plant-based is best.

 

Avoid:

Red meat - can trigger a dangerous reaction that can weaken the immune system.

 

Fried foods - reduce immunity.

 

Soda - drinking soda (even diet soda) is a bad option as it depletes the body of calcium and magnesium.

 

Sugary foods - sugar is a cold's best friend because it knocks out a good portion of the immune system for several hours.

 

Processed foods - eating processed foods can lead to chronic irritation in the body that weakens the immune system.
