Recently I read Gut and Psychology Syndrome by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. It was a very interesting book and I am actually experimenting with adopting the diet described in the book (basically grain free and all natural, unprocessed foods). On a side note, I have also cut out caffeine…which is HUGE. I guess I am trying to go natural overall
One of the coolest parts of the book was the list of the top 10 immunity boosters
Top 10 Influences which Boost Immunity (p 221)
Cold pressed oils: olive oils, fish oils, nut and seed oils.
Fresh eggs, particularly raw egg yolk.
Onions and garlic.
Freshly pressed vegetable and fruit juices.
Regular consumption of greens: parsley, dill, coriander, spring onion and garlic, etc.
Probiotic supplementation and fermented foods.
Contact with animals: horses, dogs, etc. Having a pet in the family can do a lot for children’s immune status.
Physical activity in the fresh air.
Swimming in unpolluted natural waters: lakes, rivers, and sea.
