Our immune system is constantly fighting viral and bacterial attacks. Most of the time it’s intact and all is well. But, occasionally, it’s down and opens doors for all kinds of infections, especially in Dubai’s summer time, when the air conditioning systems are running full power and there is a non-stop circulation of used air. Our TCM Shanghai experts give some good advice how to boost your immune system and support it. And guess what? You don’t have to spend a lot of money on medicine and treatments. You will find these herbal remedies in almost every kitchen. It doesn’t get any easier than that:
Garlic has antimicrobial, antiviral and antibiotic properties. Instead of eating the raw garlic cloves just include them in your soup, rice or pasta dish. Garlic adds a nice flavor to nearly any meal.
Ginger is an antihistamine and decongestant. It’s a great weapon against cold symptoms. Boil a small piece of ginger and make some delicious ginger tea with some lemon juice and honey. Drink it hot or cold – whatever you prefer.
Elderberry is a powerful antioxidant and an excellent remedy to fight early flu symptoms. It also boosts your overall respiratory health. If you don’t want to go for the raw berries, you will find elderberry jam or tea in every supermarket.
