During the period of seasonal illness, it is especially important to know what simple actions will help strengthen the immune system and protect your body from the invasion of viruses.
Five simple recommendations for protecting against viral diseases were listed by otolaryngologist Vladimir Zaitsev in an interview with Sputnik radio:
- First of all, according to the doctor, it is very important to drink as much liquid as possible.
You can choose any tea you like. The fact is that viruses cannot withstand water hammer and are actively destroyed.
- Secondly, it is necessary to saturate the body with vitamin C.
The doctor advises to eat kiwi, ginger, citrus fruits, and even ordinary sauerkraut. In a word, all those products that contain vitamin C. Well, if you add lemon, lime or grapefruit to tea, you get a double benefit.
- Third tip combines the previous two.
The doctor recommends the following recipe: “Add half a lemon to a jug of water. We drink it not in a glass, but in small sips between meals, ”advises Vladimir Zaitsev.
- Fourth, there should be a lot of greens in the diet. This will not only provide the body with vitamins, but will also help cleanse the gastrointestinal tract.
- Fifth, at the first sign of malaise, nasal discharge or ear congestion, it is important not to endure, but to consult a doctor as soon as possible.
